BUT FIRST COFFEE | Nathalie DeSousa November 5, 2019 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout that is all about my devotion/addiction to coffee.   Every time i get a new coffee mug, i always take a selfie with it, and this new mug is probably a new favorite and large enough to hold 2 cups of coffee at once :)  .. So, just imagine how happy it made me to see the new Just Nick Studio cut files, just perfect for this page!

 

 

 

 I started by creating the mixed media background of this page using VIcki Boutin Art Crayons and Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolors. While the background dried, i started working on the title for the page.

 

 

 

I used the But First Coffee cut file to cut the title of the page from white cardstock.  First, i set the machine to cut the "But FIrst" part of the title four times from white cardstock so i could stack them together, and create my own dimensional alphas.

 

 

I chose to stitch the "coffee" part of the title; for this, i first added an offset to the word -on my Silhouette Studio platform-, then set the inner lines of the word as a perforated line, and then send it to cut from white cardstock.  This is an easy way to obtain a stitching guide without having to pierce the holes.  I then used some embroidery thread and Espresso Liquid Watercolor - Pinkfresh Studio - to detail the word.

 

 

 

To continue the circle shape of the background (mug ring marks) i cut a circle frame from white cardstock using the Infinity Hearts cut file.   I used it to frame my picture and continue the look of the background.

 

 

To embellish my page, i chose to add embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio's Office Hours collection and Citrus Twist Kits.  I made sure that the embellishments stayed within a small color palette and had a circular shape.

 

 

I hope this inspires you to check the new cut files available at JustNick Studio - if you are a coffee lover, then you must get the cut file--, there is always something for everyone.   Remember you can always contact me with any questions!

 


THANKFUL FOR THIS BOND | Nathalie DeSousa November 22, 2018 07:00

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Friends!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout that celebrates the sweet and special bond between humans and pets.  We love our baby so much, and he loves us just as much that i decided to pull a few of the beautiful JustNick studio cut files to create this new page.

 

 

I wanted something soft for the background, so i decided to hand stitch the  Heart Strings Background with white thread, and then back the heart spaces with colorful hearts cut from the  new Whimsical collection.

 

 

 

 

The curvature of the lines brings so much movement to the layout; and the space  created with the stitching was the perfect spot to add some sentiments using the collection's rub-ons or stamped images -that correspond to respective heart color-.

 

 

 

To create the title of this page, the Gratitude cut file was used to cut the word 'Thankful' from white cardstock.  This was propped on some foam adhesive onto the layout's background.

 

 

 

Once the picture was placed on the page, i used a few of the Whimsical collection flower ephemera to create clusters around the page.   To bring more of the cool tones to the page (tried at best to tone block the clusters), I  had to use the Stems 2 cut file to cut some extra leaves from white cardstock,  These were then colored with watercolor so that they take the hues in the hearts.

 

 

This page is so full of texture and movement.   The color of the hearts bring plenty of color and interest to this page,and i just love how it all works together!   Remember to stop by JustNick Studio store to check all these cut files.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Have a blessed day!
