You Make My Heart Smile - Cathy Martin February 25, 2018 07:00

Hey all, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout to share with you!  This time I decided to use a cut file as a mask and use some spray mist to spray over it.  This isn't really a new or different technique, but it's one that I've used several times before and I love the end results.

So for my layout I used the You Make My Heart Smile cut file.  This file actually comes with several different phrases and I cut 3 of them out, though I only used 2 for my page, but I just tucked the other one aside for another time!  I used a spare piece of cardstock that I had laying around, since I wasn't worried about keeping the file after I had sprayed it, though you could cut if from white cardstock and then keep the altered file for another project, kind of a two for one deal!

Since my spray title took up one side of my layout I used a bunch of patterned paper strips to fill the other side.  I dug into my stash and scraps and used up some older papers that I had been wanting to use for a while.  This was a great way to really use up lots of papers that are just laying around. I didn't need much in the way of embellishments since the title and papers were already so bold!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, and don't forget to check out the shop for lots of amazing designs!

 

 


Heart is Full | Morgan Langley February 15, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! I am excited to be sharing another LOVE post this week! I used the beautiful "Heart is Full Background" cut file to create this fun and simple layout of my sister, Violet, and I!
I cut the file first from pink card stock and then made a circle a little big larger than the file on my Silhouette to create the white circle to make the file stand out against this cute patterned paper from the "Turn the Page" collection. Then on to embellishing! 
I used the "Turn the Page" ephemera pack as well as the 12x12 paper pad to cut out those adorable flowers and butterflies. I stitched through the middle of some of the butterflies for added texture. I also added puffy hearts as well as a bow, camera, and hot air balloon sticker from the "Carousel" collection. 
I created my title using the thinkers and puffy sticker "happy" also from the "Carousel" collection with the ampersand piece from "Turn the Page". I loved this mixing of alphas.

XOXO | Marcia Dehn-Nix February 05, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends! 

Marcia back today. This week is all about  L O V E  on the JustNick Studio blog ... and there are so many awesome digital cut files that work well for documenting all of your love stories on paper. I wanted to use the new XO Heart digital cut file to help frame my photo and decided to add some hearts to the background with the Cross My Heart Background digital cut file. I love how it turned out!

You can see the Cross My Heart Background has these little squares to form rows of hearts. In addition, I cut out just the inside heart from several different pattern papers. Hand stitching would have looked awesome with this cut file.

I love how the XO heart frames my photo. You can see a larger heart from the Hearts 2 digital cut file tucked underneath. I love the patchwork effect the background has, yet with that pink framed heart, the focus is still on my photo.

Here are the cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week!


Happy Girl, Happy Heart - Page Maps Team Up June 07, 2017 06:00

Hey everyone!!! It's Cathy here and I'm back from my trip and I'm ready to scrap!  The thing about taking a long scrappy break though, is that sometimes even though I'm raring to go I just don't have any ideas coming to mind.  Well then in steps Becky Fleck and her June sketches and I'm saved!  So I have been really wanting to use some of my older products as well as some of my more vintage looking products, so I thought I would challenge myself with the sketch I was given.  My sketch is very modern and simple, a great jumping off point, so I decided to soften it up by replacing one of the middle layers with the Henna Heart cut file!  I cut it out in pink and then sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Cherry to get a shiny heart!  I had to make a small cut so that I could have it look like it was looping around my middle paper piece.  I then took her visual triangle of embellishments and just went to town!  I used up lots of older chipboard and stickers and was really happy to make a dent in my stash!

So here is the sketch that I was given!

 

And here is the cut file that I used for my project!

 

And here is my finished project!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! xoxo Cat


Hello Love February 19, 2016 07:49

Cut files and kits! Hello love! Date night with my husband! Hello love! Suzanna here today to share with you another layout that I created using the February Clique Kits kit and the exclusive cut files that accompany it, designed by Nicole from Just Nick.

There was a lot of color in this kit that has been really interesting to me to see how everybody used; people either selectively chose colors in groups of two or three or went all out and used all of them (Melissa's layout HERE comes to mind). I like to worth less color generally with the pink, yellow and black being my pick for this layout.

I mixed heart stickers and die cuts that accompanied the kit with the hearts within the cut file the "rain" down into the exclusive 4x4 Hello card. While most of the cut file is covered up, I like the foundation it created on the page in which to nestle all the fun bits and pieces.

Trios of the "xo" file can be found around the page in pops of yellow. The three form a visual triangle around the photo that lead your eye inward to the main focus of the layout.

Thanks Clique Kits for letting us experience your kits!


You & Me November 03, 2015 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! Marcia here today. I have a wedding layout to share with you. My daughter and her husband just celebrated their first anniversary and I was feeling guilty for not having finished scrapping all the pictures ... gasp!. I used the gorgeous Life is Beautiful collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios.

I used a couple different cut files on this layout. Since It's a wedding photo, I wanted to incorporate some hearts. I found a great heart border in the Hearts cut file.

The hearts were used to separate two pieces of pattern paper.

Now, you will also notice the Scribble Circle. This is from the Scribble Circle Background cut file. I deleted all but one circle and after cutting it out, stitched around it. I love the texture that stitching adds.

I added another larger scribble circle under my photo and I stitched this one as well. 

Don't be afraid to alter a cut file to suit your needs... Just imagine all the possibilities. Thanks for stopping by.

 


True Love {Heart Background} July 08, 2015 07:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone!

Melissa here with a layout showcasing one of the awesome background cut files in the shop.

I love using background cut files because it adds interest and rhythm to a page. They are especially fun for a clean and simple scrapper - which is what I use to label myself. Now, I just love to experiment and one of those ways of experimentation, is utilizing these cut files to their full potential. 

Here is the page I created:

 

I really love this heart background! I chose to use the .png version and traced it. After releasing the compound path, I left some of the hearts filled. Then, with the negative part cut out, I used gelatos to create a watercolor effect and layered them. On top of the color, I added some stencil work using modeling paste and other embellishments. I felt so artsy! And, the best part, it was super easy.

 

Thanks for swinging by today!
