SPRING LOVE | Nathalie DeSousa March 30, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today just in time to kick off our Spring celebration.   Even as we try to get used  to our new normal, the world is quietly changing in my corner of the world.  So, what better way to celebrate the season than with color, flowers and a few cut files from JustNick Studio

 

 

Just love all the soft colors and simplicity on the page. I am always drawn to wreaths, so i chose the new FLORAL WREATH 4 to create the background of this page.  But i chose to split the wreath in half so that the floral details of the cut sit on the center of the page.

 

 

 

I pulled a picture of my daughter walking on the Humber river a few years back, as it reminds me of the nice warm clear days of Spring.  I set it in between the wreath pieces and set to create the embellishments for the page.

 

 

 

 

 

I chose the BUILD A FLOWER 3, BUILD A FLOWER 6, BUILD A FLOWER 7 and STEMS 5 cut files to cut all the flowers from white cardstock.

 

 

 

 

To add color to the flowers and leaves, i used Vicki Boutin Art Crayons.  I simply scribbled  a bit of the color on a piece of plastic, diluted the pigment and use it as watercolor on the die cuts.

 

To finish the page, i simply glued the flowers creating clusters around the wreath, then  glued the negative pieces of the cut file to add a few more small details to the cluster.

 

 

A few lines of journal, and splatters of gold and white ink complete the page.  I love how easy this came together, and how it brings the feel of spring to the page.  Remember to check all the cut files at the Just Nick Studio Shop.

KEEP SAFE everyone

 


Layering cut files ! January 14, 2020 10:19

Nicole here today to share with you a project using  several of the layer-able cut files in the store. 

I started by cutting the Basketweave 2 background from textured white cardstock and popped it over another piece of white cardstock using foam adhesive. 

 You can see I also layered several of our Build a flower cut files together - cutting them from different patterned papers.

 You can create a ton of dimension easily by curling the ends of each petal and even adding small amounts of foam adhesive between some of the layers. 

Just secure the layers together using a button or brad and it keeps it all together in a pretty manner ! 


I hope you are inspired to add lots of layers to your project using g some of our cut files ! 


Road to Happiness | Rachel Lowe April 16, 2019 07:00

Hey friends, Rachel here and today I have a layout that is all about Spring and flowers!

I have used the new collection by Pink Paislee Paige Evans Horizon.

I have used two cut files on this layout.

I cut the Floral Spring Ring in a dark coloured paper as I wanted my flowers to contrast.

I used white cardstock measuring 10x10 inches.

Using the release compound path technique I dragged out the petals and then cut. I used an piece of 12x12 paper that had a rainbow of colours which when you are cutting numerous flowers is a perfect way to not have to use many papers.

Once I had filled the flowers within the floral ring I set about creating individual flowers using the Build a Flower 4 cut file. To keep my layout bright and with a spring theme I chose bright coloured papers. I created various sizes and made a total of 12 individual flowers.

Once I had assembled them, I started off with the smaller ones and added these to the centres of the spring ring flowers to create a 3D effect. Once I had done this I then arranged my flowers around an in the ring to create a cascade effect of spring flowers.

I then added my photo and embellished around it. I matted my layout on a bright multi coloured paper, which against the white is a wonderful contrast. 

I love how this turned out and it says happy to me!

Building a flower is a great way to add flowers where you get to choose the sizes, and they really are not time consuming.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
