As Cute As A Button November 24, 2015 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing another layout for Just Nick Digital Cut Files using the Bitty Buttons Cut File, the Handcut Letters Cut File and the word "cherish" from the Gratitude Cut File. I thought it was perfect for the title of the layout because this little guy is definitely as cute as a button. My daughter saw this kid when it was only 20 minutes old. He was named Rudy.

For the title of my page, I used the Handcut Letters and created the words "As Cute As A Button".  I then duplicated the title and filled the entire page and then cut it out on white card stock with my Silhouette Cameo.  To make the bottom line of words stand out more, I took a water brush and my distress ink and painted around each letter.  When the paint was dry, I used a brown piece of paper and backed the letters so that they would stand out more and then went ahead and cut out paper buttons and the word "cherish".  Finally I matted my photo.

I hope you are inspired to use the cut files in different ways such as a title on the background paper.

Be sure and check out all the cut file designs in the Just Nick Shop.  Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

November GDT + freebie time! November 20, 2015 07:00 4 Comments

 

We would like to welcome our guest designer for November, Kristine Davidson.

Kristine Davidson lives on the East Coast of Canada with her husband of 14 years and their two tabby cats Archie and Willie. She works full time as a Customer Sales and Service agent for an airline company and loves to spend her spare time playing with paper. She also loves city skylines, sunsets, and a big bowl of ice cream while she watches reality television!

 Kristine has been an avid scrapbooker since 2006 with a complete addiction to pop dots, diecuts and pattern paper. She is the founder of a scrapbook sketch site called Creative Scrappers, and currently a design team member for Bella Blvd, Jillibean Soup and Simple Stories. She is thrilled to be our guest designer this month and looking forward to providing you with some inspiration to create using our cut files.

We sent Kristine a few files that are hitting the store in December and here are some cards she made with them.

I really loved this cut file and wanted to create a layout with it but after i looked at it a bit more i thought a card would be perfect! I sized the background to measure 4"x4" and cut another tree to layer it. Adding a few embellishments such as stickers and enamel dots helped me create this cute card!

Here is another example of using a background file to your advantage! I cut this file using green patterned paper and kept the JOY part to create my card. It measures less than 6" wide and it was perfect to create a great holiday card!
We also sent Kristine this file:
Here is the layout she created with it!
Cut Files used : LEAVES and GRATITUDE 
It's fall and all the leaves here on the east coast have pretty much fallen off the trees but adding them to a layout is a great way to add dimension and details to a layout!
I cut up the leaves and added them with pop dots under other embellishments to create a focal point. I also used the word THANKFUL from the Gratitude collection for my title. The possibility with these leaves are endless; such as a background, adding pattern papers to the empty spaces, watercolor and so much more! 
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicole's Cut Files this month and I hope you find the time to cut a few patterns and add them to your cards or pages!
Thanks Kristine for joining us today! The Leaves cut file Kristine used is our FREEBIE for November!

Grateful for my Son November 18, 2015 07:00

I have four kids and between the two little boys who are at a cute and very scrappable age and my daughter, my oldest son often gets neglected in layouts.  This wasn't always the case but as he's aged, good pictures and topics are less easy to come by. So for this week's topic of gratitude I thought I would focus my layout on him.  Christine joining you today with a layout about my wonderful 11 year old son!

I love words and love to incorporate a lot of them onto layouts.  I thought the Everyday Words file contained some words that were perfect for showing how grateful I am for him as well as some of the things I think of him.  I was also really excited to use the file as a base for my whole layout and slide pictures in accordingly!

In order to get my pictures on there I had to cover up some of the words.  I also tried to keep the pictures placed so it was visually pleasing and not too crazy of a design.  I backed each of the words with a patterned paper in different fall colors and patterns and then did some outlining with my brown pen.

I also made use of some enamel dots cascading down the page to try and keep the eyes moving downward and reading. JustNick has so many great word files - you can find one to fill the need you have for your current layout and more!


Thankful November 16, 2015 07:00

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here today to share what I've been up to lately with some of the awesome JustNick cut files. This time around, it was all about using neutral tones. I actually began the layout on Remembrance Day/Veterans Day. Being the sombre, yet reflective kind of day it usually is, and loving the Gratitude cut file recently added to the store, I instantly thought of a great pic I had on hand of my parents. Here's my tribute to them:

I cut the word "thankful" twice in two different colours, and stacked them slightly off balance to create a shadowed look. But I couldn't stop there! Ever since being asked to use two or three or four cut files on one project, I've been having a ball combining cut files together. On this particular layout, I also used the very new Leaves and Floral Wreaths cut files. Wreaths, you may ask? Oh, yes! One is there, but in sections creating the stems for the fussy-cut clusters of flowers. Fun! Oh! And cutting the leaves out of two-sided patterned paper, I flipped a few leaves over to create dimension. Want a closer look? Here it is:

Nicole's cut files are SO fun to work with! Hop along to the JustNick store right here and see for yourselves!!

Happy scrapping!
