JustNick Cut File Store

Hey everyone!  It's Cathy and I'm back with another layout!  This week we are focusing on word and sentiment cut files and I decided to use one cut file that had several words in it so that I could make my own title!  I chose the cut file All Boy and cut out several of the words and backed the letters in various patterned papers from my stash as well as some 6 x 6 paper pads!  I totally love how cool this layout turned out, and I was able to use up so many paper scraps as well as older embellishments in order to showcase this awesome cut file!

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look today!  Don't forget to check out my YT channel to see how it all came together, and have an awesome day!

 

 

 


It Won't Rain All The Time - Cathy Martin July 26, 2017 06:00

Hello hello hello!  It's Cathy and I'm back showcasing another layout featuring one of Nicole's amazing cut files!  I find that the trend of plus signs seems to come and go, but I for one am a big fan!  I really loved all the Positive cut files in the shop, so I chose the Positive One file.  I did a little revamping with the file while I was in the Silhouette software.  I duplicated the file so that I could shrink it down and have lots of plus signs.  I then deleted random signs here and there, just to add a bit of visual interest.

My next step was to back my pluses with lots of different patterned papers from my stash as well as some from 6x6 paper pads.  I used a combo of newer papers from the Little by Little collection along with some papers that have been floating around my stash pile.  I left some of the pluses blank and then put another piece of white card stock behind the whole thing.  I added some details around the white ones with some ticking and then got to embellishing!

I am so flippin' happy with how this layout turned out.  The story behind my layout is about my son and his dealings with expressing and recognizing his emotions, and I just love the juxtaposition of the happy plus signs with the overall story of the layout!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today!

 

 


Thanks Dad! - Cathy Martin June 20, 2017 05:00

Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back creating a masculine themed layout! Fathers Day was just a few days ago and I was really happy to get some fantastic photos of daddy with the kiddos!  I had been in a scrap slump, but after Sunday I had renewed energy to go and get some of those photos on a layout!

One of my favourite types of cutfile in the JustNick shop are the ones that are lots of shapes attached together.  They are perfect for backing with patterned paper!  I found one that I thought was fun and whimsical and would work well with my idea.  I'm a sucker for circular patterns so this one worked out great!  Usually I cut them using white card stock, but unfortunately I am completely out! (I know, how does that even happen right?) So I decided to use a light yellow patterned paper.  Needless to say after my Silhouette was done cutting I turned the cut file over, and ended up using the other side instead!  You can check out my Youtube video to see what I'm talking about and see how my idea evolved! 

Have an awesome scrappy day everyone and don't forget to grab a cut file while you're here!

 

 

 


Happy Summer - Cat Martin April 21, 2017 06:00

Hello hello hello!  It's Cat here back with another layout!  I am so happy and excited with how this layout turned out so I hope you like it too!.  I used the Radiate Cut File and cut it out from a polka dot patterned paper.  I then backed it with several different types of paper, including papers that originally came from some old K & Company Smash Books that I never even came close to completing!  I kept the embellishments and the background paper simple to really show off the photo and the cut file.  My picture perfectly fit in the circle in the centre.  The Radiate Cut File is perfect for emphasizing one picture and pretty much would fit any theme! I know for many of us who scrapbook the men and boys in our lives we have a difficult time but that's what I love about having the opportunity to create for JustNick, so I can showcase different ways to use her files and hopefully help those who are not sure exactly how to scrap for our boys! I will also have a process video up on my YouTube channel if you want to see how I put it all together, including all of my struggles!

This week on the blog we are focusing on using sentiment and phrase cut files.  I created this boyish page, so I wanted something to go along with the theme, and I thought the hashtags cut file was a good match. But this file could be used with so many type of page.

Hashtags 1

 

I used the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection for this page.  On the background, I cut out a large diamond shape from a piece of patterned paper with diamonds on it. I wanted to mimic an argyle pattern, so I machine stitched and hand stitched some larger diamonds to the right.  

 

 

I fussy cut out some of the smaller diamonds and scattered them on the page.

Just a few layers around my photo and some splatters on the background, too.

 I also used the negative space of the diamond to write my journaling and scattered a few more embellies around the page.

 

Take a browse through the shop and check out all the great phrases and fonts available!
