November GDT + freebie time! November 20, 2015 07:00 4 Comments

 

We would like to welcome our guest designer for November, Kristine Davidson.

Kristine Davidson lives on the East Coast of Canada with her husband of 14 years and their two tabby cats Archie and Willie. She works full time as a Customer Sales and Service agent for an airline company and loves to spend her spare time playing with paper. She also loves city skylines, sunsets, and a big bowl of ice cream while she watches reality television!

 Kristine has been an avid scrapbooker since 2006 with a complete addiction to pop dots, diecuts and pattern paper. She is the founder of a scrapbook sketch site called Creative Scrappers, and currently a design team member for Bella Blvd, Jillibean Soup and Simple Stories. She is thrilled to be our guest designer this month and looking forward to providing you with some inspiration to create using our cut files.

We sent Kristine a few files that are hitting the store in December and here are some cards she made with them.

I really loved this cut file and wanted to create a layout with it but after i looked at it a bit more i thought a card would be perfect! I sized the background to measure 4"x4" and cut another tree to layer it. Adding a few embellishments such as stickers and enamel dots helped me create this cute card!

Here is another example of using a background file to your advantage! I cut this file using green patterned paper and kept the JOY part to create my card. It measures less than 6" wide and it was perfect to create a great holiday card!
We also sent Kristine this file:
Here is the layout she created with it!
Cut Files used : LEAVES and GRATITUDE 
It's fall and all the leaves here on the east coast have pretty much fallen off the trees but adding them to a layout is a great way to add dimension and details to a layout!
I cut up the leaves and added them with pop dots under other embellishments to create a focal point. I also used the word THANKFUL from the Gratitude collection for my title. The possibility with these leaves are endless; such as a background, adding pattern papers to the empty spaces, watercolor and so much more! 
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicole's Cut Files this month and I hope you find the time to cut a few patterns and add them to your cards or pages!
