JustNick Cut File Store

Happiness in Circles! | Morgan Langley August 06, 2017 07:00

Hello friends! Today I am kicking off circles week on the Just Nick blog using the "Dreamcatcher Background 1". I love the sections in this file and I knew I wanted to add some hand stitching!

I started by backing the cut file with papers from the new Maggie Holmes collection "Carousel". Then I stitched some of the sections using corresponding colors and some using plain white embroidery floss. 

I embellished using the puffy stickers from the collection as well as those gold glitter stars from the chipboard sticker sheet. I fussy cut two kites from the collection and layered them with some tangled thread. My title came from the ephemera pack and I love how it all came together!

I added some light pink splatters and added the border with my sewing machine! I used light blue thread and set my machine to do a scallop stitch! 

This layout was so fun to make and I love the look of the different sections with the Dreamcatcher Background file! Thank you for stopping by! 


Enjoy The Moment July 09, 2017 07:00

Hello everyone!

  I am Nathalie (aka Tachita, my nickname for as long as I can remember), and I am super excited to be part of the 2017-2018 Design Team for JustNick Studio.

  I am grateful to GOD first and foremost for all his blessings, and to Nicole for inviting me to be part of this amazing group of designers.  My love for photography and memory keeping introduce me to scrapbooking, and I have been hooked on this craft for many years.  I especially love working with cut files, so getting to work and share my projects with Nicole's designs is just a delight.  

  For my first project, i chose to work a monochromatic design with lots of texture -aka stitching- and a few of the store cut files.   

 

 

For this layout,  i chose the gorgeous Floral Burst Background to create the background for the layout.  So I used the cut file to create the large hand stitched flowers in the page.  To add more texture and dimension to the page, some string art was used to fill the inside of each petal on the flowers.

 

 

 

 

It did take some time to complete the designs, but i find hand stitching relaxing!  

 

To create the title of this page, i chose the Enjoy The Moment cut file, and cut it twice from white cardstock.  The two cut-outs were glued together, and then attached to the bottom of the page using some foam dots (i love the little shadow under the  title!)

 

The picture of my daughter holding the littlest one (that is how we call the little cousins around here), was framed with some leaf cut outs created from vellum and white cardstock using the  Stem cut file.   A few pieces stickers, and ephemera pieces from the Rose Quartz collection -Prima Marketing- and Gather collection -Crate Paper- frame the picture.

 

 

What can i say?  I love this page!  It is full of texture, dimension and cut files, not to mention a black and white picture ;)  

 

Don't forget to check the cut files used in this layout in the JustNick store, there are lots of designs available (all beautiful, of course!).  I am a comment away if you have questions on how this layout came together, and/or you can always find me on Instagram - @tachita55 - !!

 

See you all soon!
