JustNick Cut File Store

HIKING MEMORIES by SOPHIE DELORME October 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this new layout to share!

 

 

I used the “Delightful Doily” cut file quite new in the JustNick Studio store, the “Happy Words” cut file along with the Pinkfresh Studio collection “A Day of Splendor”.

 

 

 

I cut three Doilies on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed each of them with different patterned papers. I also created big paper brads with a tool from my stash from Imaginisce and put them in the center of two of the doilies.

 

 

I arranged the cut files in a horizontal row and put my black and white photo, a bit crooked, on the left side of my 12x12 layout, overlapping two of the doilies.

 

I used letter stickers for my title and the word “Memories” from the cut file “Happy Words” which was released a few months ago.

 

 

I did an offset cut and cut in on velum. I mounted the word on adhesive foam before placing it on top of my photo.

 

Then, I decorated along the doilies line and around the photo with different die cuts and frames, all coming from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling directly on the page and stamped the date.

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! Doilies can be used in so many ways! They can also be used as stencils with modeling paste of ink blending. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!

Happy New Year | Patricia January 4, 2021 06:00

Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!!  Ah, goodbye 2020 and hello 2021, right?!  Even though situations will not magically change, I am holding on to starting fresh and doing what I can to stay positive and especially healthy.  Today, I combine the 1 - 9 Outline Numbers and the Happy Words to documenting our New Year's Eve photo to bring in a fresh new year!

I cut 2, 2, and 1 from the 1 - 9 Outline from white cardstock vertically to use on the right side, and used the positive cut outs on this left side against a very fresh pattern paper background.

Keeping with the mindset of a fresh new start, I detail cut bright flowers from pattern paper to frame our New Year's Eve photo.  For my journaling, I used the watercolor paper I used underneath my cut 1 - 9 Outline on the right.

This right side, I kept mostly white to help the left pop more with the bright colors.  I used clear acetates in stars and circles for the '0.'  I backed this numbers with cardstock with watercolors.  Some peek through more than others and gives just enough color.  I used two more of the detail cut flowers from pattern paper to bring balance and more pop to this white background.  And the black acrylic 'happy' repeats the 'happy' I have cut from the white cardstock as well.  The 'happy' and the wood veneer numbers are along side the cut out numbers and word.

You can see more of the cut through with this little patch of more concentrated watercoloring.

Love the style of the 1 - 9 Outline numbers!  So many ways to use them.  These are just two along with the word 'happy' from the Happy Words cut file.  Happy and healthy New Year to you all!!
