JustNick Cut File Store

Thanks Dad! - Cathy Martin June 20, 2017 05:00

Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back creating a masculine themed layout! Fathers Day was just a few days ago and I was really happy to get some fantastic photos of daddy with the kiddos!  I had been in a scrap slump, but after Sunday I had renewed energy to go and get some of those photos on a layout!

One of my favourite types of cutfile in the JustNick shop are the ones that are lots of shapes attached together.  They are perfect for backing with patterned paper!  I found one that I thought was fun and whimsical and would work well with my idea.  I'm a sucker for circular patterns so this one worked out great!  Usually I cut them using white card stock, but unfortunately I am completely out! (I know, how does that even happen right?) So I decided to use a light yellow patterned paper.  Needless to say after my Silhouette was done cutting I turned the cut file over, and ended up using the other side instead!  You can check out my Youtube video to see what I'm talking about and see how my idea evolved! 

Have an awesome scrappy day everyone and don't forget to grab a cut file while you're here!

 

 

 


PageMaps round up! June 12, 2017 07:00

Did you have a chance to see all the projects our team created for our team up with PageMaps the past few weeks?

I had a chance to play along too and created this page using our File Folders, and Lowe Case Alphas cut files.

Cut files don't have to overtake your project. Yes, they can be the total focus of your page, but I wanted to use some cut files in a more minimal way on my project. I cut the file folders from a 6x6 paper pad and layered them behind my photo.

It adds a paper layer but with a little fun too right! I also added some co-ordinating paper strips around the edge of my page, I could have cut some stars on my digi machine, but went with glittery pre-made ones instead.

I finished the page off with the Lower Case Alphas cut file for my title on a quick diecut word bubble.

If you haven't already, check out the June PageMaps for all the sketches and takes our team did with them!
