Superfecta of Cut Files June 07, 2016 07:00

Hey there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share my latest project with you. This week, Nicole has challenged a few of us on the design team to use four or more of the Just Nick digital cut files on our projects! That's quite the superfecta!! It was a challenge for me but I did just that!

To create the above layout, I used the following 4 digital cut files from Just Nick;

This was a bit of a challenge for me as I like the elements on my layouts to have purpose or meaning. There needs to be some relevance to the story, not just elements thrown on there for the sake of having more. Each of the 4 (or more) cut files needed to be on the layout for a reason.

The Let It Shine Background and the "innards" of Radiate combined to make the sun - easy, no problem there. The new font, Script Font, I used a sketch pen with then cut out the outline of the file with my Silhouette for the title. Then the "today" file folder from the File Folders collection served well as a tie in. As the file is cut from a multi colored patterned paper, it served well to tie the multiple elements and colors together.

I love how the title "sunshine" turned out using a sketch pen and then digitally cutting that file! It took a bit of manipulating to get the individual letters to weld but fortunately Nicole leaves lots of "extra" on the letters. This additional swoosh, allows you to either cut or overlap the swoosh of the letters to create a symmetrical word. I can't wait to do this again and use my watercolors or Gelatos within the pen outline!

Today I challenge you to create a layout using 4 or more Just Nick digital cut files on your next project! Thanks for stopping in today!

 

 


Hello Canter Layout January 27, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a layout created using Nicole's amazing digital cut files. These files are so incredibly easy to modify to suit your needs or use "as is", both of which I have done on this page celebrating my daughter's first time cantering a horse. Intentionally.

I used three of the cut files here;

- Arrow Set 1

- Card Sentiments 1 (yay)

- File Folders (noted)

The biggest adjustments that I made to the files are seen on the left hand side of this page, with regards to the arrows. As I wanted sufficient arrows to fill that space moving down the page, I omitted the text from a few of them and cut in various widths. The arrows make for a commentary of what an amazing feat my daughter accomplished.

I like to have my journaling in a nice neat place, tucked away. It just makes the appearance of my layouts look "neater". What better place to house journaling than on a file folder?

Thanks for stopping in today! Be sure to check out all the new files that are uploaded weekly! Soon we will be showing you how to incorporate some of those love-ly files Nicole has created into your Valentine and love crafting.


The Wild Life January 18, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  So excited to be sharing my first official post for the JustNick store!

I'm still scrapping my photos from fall, and wanted to use a couple "natural" looking cuts for my page.

I used Echo Park's "The Wild Life" collection for my page and three cut files from the store:
The leaves I cut out of patterned paper and just tucked under my photos.

Although these trees are probably intended for Christmas pages, they went perfectly with my "Adirondack" theme!   I cut them from pattered paper and inked them a bit to match the greens I wanted.  I layered a few tree stickers over the top, too.

Finally, I wanted to have a little bit more space to write my journaling, but didn't want it to take up space on the page, so I cut out this "today" file card from the File Folders cut files and tucked it behind my photos.

I'm really looking forward to sharing my Just Nick projects over the next couple of months!  Thanks for stopping by!
