I like fall most of all | Laureen Wagener October 13, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone,

it's Laureen here!
Have you enjoyed fall themed week so far? I have had a blast looking at all the gorgoeus projects!


Today it is my turn and I used the "I like fall" cut file - because it is just the most gorgeous ever!

I decided to finally stitch again - and so I did cut the words out of patterned paper, adhered them down and then stitched around them!



I really kept this page super simple except for the stitching, because it was just already such a big statement that I couldn't overpower that with more embellishments.


Instead I just used a couple of small pictures of pumpkins and created a banner on the top and then just used a few embellishments
like a flair and acetate pieces!



I hope you enjoyed todays layout!

Happy crafting -
Laureen

You Are Pretty Much My Most Favorite | Jennifer McMurtrey September 14, 2017 07:00

It's words and sentiments week on the JustNick blog and the design team has created some beautiful projects.

Today I'm sharing a layout that uses the My Most Favorite and Lattice Flower Background files with a photo I pulled from my oldest daughter's Instagram account (that's where I get some of my best material). 

This project began with the wood grain background paper and yellow paper from Felicity Jane. I cut the large Lattice Flower Background and adhered it to the background paper using Tombow Mono glue. Next, I pierced the paper within the negative spaces of the flower and then hand stitched with white, pink, and turquoise embroidery floss. With the large yellow flower and stitching complete, I added the smaller pink and blue flowers to the center. These were cut using WRMK patterned papers.

 

Once the stitching was complete, I printed my photo and backed it with more patterned paper from Felicity Jane. Prior to adhering the photo to the page, I created a banner with white string, tags,  and tassel a embellishment (all from Felicity Jane) and stapled it all in place with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

I cut the sentiment next and have to admit that I did so three different times before I finally settled on the black card stock. For some reason, I just couldn't get the look I wanted and stuck with black to tie in with the black and white photo.

I followed the banner with several stickers and die cuts from Maggie Holmes that I clustered on the top and bottom right corners of the photo.

Last, I created a visual triangle with the gold stars to complete the project.

While my scrappy mojo has escaped me as of late, I am pleased with how this turned out and hope to keep the creativity flowing.

Please be sure to visit the JustNick shop for these and many other awesome cut files.


Autumn leaves and pumpkins please | Laureen Wagener September 13, 2017 07:00

Hi friends -

is it too early to scrap fall yet? I don't think so! It is never to early to bring on my favorite half of the year!



This week we are focusing on words/ sentiments over on the blog!
I didn't want to simply use a premade sentiment from Nicole, so I decided to create my own two words to use as die- cuts on my page!


That way you can easily transform your own ideas into a cool design element for your next layout.

I used the Script font cut file to create the words "autumn" and "pumpkins" to later create a title for my page. I welded the letters together and then changed the color of the outline to an orange, because orange = fall ;)


Luckily you can send designs from your Silhouette to your printer, so I printed those two words onto some smooth white cardstock and placed that cardstock piece onto my pix scan mat. I took a photo of it, loaded it into the sofware and created a larger outline for my words, and then simply cut them - and that way you can easily create your own die- cut words for your next project.

For the rest of my page I combined a bunch of fall- ish cut files and used tons of leaves and stems and a pumpkin and cut that out of patterned paper to create my cluster/ overwhelming design going on at the bottom ;)

I hope you enjoyed todays inspiration ;)

Happy crafting,

xo, Laureen

Some people | Laureen Wagener January 26, 2017 07:00

Hi friends -

it's Laureen back with you and I am excited to share my layout for today.

For my layout I used the "Some people" cut file which I had in my library for ages but never got around to use it - until now.

I used my Silhouette to draw it out for me shifted to the left edge and then began piercing holes - a whole lot of tiny holes. After that I used my watercolor pencils in orange, yellow and a nude to fill in the cut file.

Then I searched for thread in matching colors to go along with the colors.

I wanted to trash this a MILLION times during stitching - all those itty bitty spots and it didn't look like anything I had imagined.

After I finished all the stitching I acutally began liking it - this layout really grew on me. Before I started I already knew I would use a big picture on the right and create some sort of border in the middle to cover up the edge of the picture.

I fuzzy cut a lot of florals from the Felicity Jane Maggie kit and layered them in the middle of my page.

At first I thought I would use other embellishments from the kit as well but nothing really felt right so I didn't use any extra embellishments - but I think because of the large amount of stitching and the big picture no embellishments were needed.

 

I truly hope you enjoyed todays inspiration and bring out your needle -

have a great day!

Laureen

Choose Happy | Laureen Wagener November 10, 2016 07:00

Hi cut file fans - 

I hope you had a great week so far and are looking forward to the weekend and some crafty time - hopefully!

Today my task was to use any design from the store - not that hard right?! You think!

When you have access to all these amazingly beautiful files you have a hard time choosing, believe me. Then, once I found the design I wanted to use, the next question was to just cut it and back it or stitch it.

In the end I defintely wanted to use my Felicity Jane Emeline kit to go along with my picture and knew I would just back my cut file with all the different papers from the kit.

I just love the look of Quilts on layouts and why not use a cut file to achieve that look whitout all the cutting of fiedly tiedly small itty bitty pieces and then all the sewing.

The Quilted Circle Background was just perfect and easy - I modified it in the way, that it didn't cut my entire background, because if you know my crafting you may also be aware that I like my white space ;) Therefore I only let two rows of the Quilt and backed those with all the papers :)

First I started with the inner pieces of the circle and worked my way out. All there was left to do was to embellish around my picture and this layout was done!


Easy peasy - so go ahead and try to achieve a Quilt look for your next layout using a cut file ;)

Have a great day and onto the next time -

xx Laureen
