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!

 

 


3 x Christmas Cards | Tarrah McLean November 19, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! All this week, we have been showcasing cards on the Just Nick blog using the awesome Just Nick cut files.

I decided to create 3 Christmas cards for this week:

The first card I created, I used the Ho Ho Ho title from the Holiday Sentiments cut file set, cutting it from white cardstock and using foam tape to pop it up a little bit!

This cut file set is so versatile, as you get all of these cute titles for your holiday/Christmas projects in the one set!

The 2nd card I created, I used the 25 frame from Holiday Overlay 1 cut file set! I cut the 25 frame from white cardstock again and backed the frame with some red Christmas themed paper. I then used foam tape to raise the whole thing on top of the green Christmas themed paper. 

Frames with images or words are great to use on cards, you can cut them from paper or cardstock for a fun look.  

The 3rd card I created, I used the Holiday Tree Background. I cut this tree and the frame that its attached to with the green Christmas paper. I adhered it to a white cardstock background and added some Holiday themed embellishments to finish off my card.

The Holiday Tree background can be used for either a scrapbook layout or for cards too, you just need to resize the image accordingly!

Hope you enjoyed looking at my Christmas cards today! Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog!

Happy creating!
