Seriously... June 01, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone. Hope all is well. I decided to play with the Lazy Daisies cut files again. I love the fact that these cut files can be layered together to add dimensions to any project. Not only did I layer my flowers, but I layered several different types of patterned paper and embellishments on this layout. I love how this turned out.

Patterned paper: Die cuts: Elle's Studio, Thickers: American Crafts, Flair: Clique Kits, Chipboard: Bella Blvd., Enamel Dots: Richard Garay, Simple Stories, Lazy Daisy Cut file: Just Nick Studio.

Here are a few close-ups of my project.

Crafting off the Page with Cut Files May 18, 2016 10:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone.  I wanted to show you a project I created with my daughters.  They hold a lemonade / bake sale every year and we always dress it up with all sorts of crafty elements so when this year rolled around, I knew exactly which JustNick cut files to use.

Can you spot the three cut files I used? It's a bit of an I-Spy game so let me walk you through it and show you a tutorial.

This entire decor of the lemonade stand was inspired by this paper flower garland I wanted to create.  I hand cut some of the flowers from the Paige Evans' Fancy Free collection for Pink Paislee.

Then I chose two flowers from the Lazy Daisies cut file and added circles for holes in the middle of them so I could string them on the twine.

Next I downloaded the Stems 2 cut file created a hole for the twine to go through the leaf of the stem.  To do this, I created a small circle nested in a large circle.  I then stacked it on top of the stem and welded it together.

I then strung them on the twine and hung them from the top of the lemonade stand.  

Next I created a little sign for the stand inviting people to try the lemonade.  I chose the Lemon Slice cut file and then I typed "pucker up" and cut it out of coordinating paper.  

I created several other elements using my Silhouette. You can find the details for those on my blog.

Hello all. I've been playing with Bella Blvd. again. The "Whatever is Lovely" collection has some of my favorite colors and patterns! For one, I love yellow and teal. And another reason I love this collection is because it has butterflies, fun patterns and it's just really pretty. haha I used the "Lazy Daisies" from Just Nick Studio's shop. Love this digital cut file! The cut file comes in a variety of sizes so that you can layer them to achieve the look you want.

 Supplies: Patterned Paper: Stickers: Enamel Dots: Bella Blvd., Acrylic Paint: Studio Calico, Digital cut files: Just Nick Studio, Other: Tag.

 
A few close ups:
I hand cut the butterfly from patterned paper to use as a die cut for my tag.

 

Also, I used a thin paint brush to highlight some of the words in yellow paint.

Remember November 11, 2015 07:00

This week's theme on the blog is all about remembrance. Today in Canada it is about Rememberance Day where we honour those who serve for our country.

My take on remberance for this post focuses on a time already too soon, when my babies were little! I recently took a whole bunch of older photos off some old layout (eek!) and decided to re-scrap one for this blog post.

 I used two of our cut files for this page. The Remember cut file as well as a couple new file coming out soon - Lazy Daisies and Diamond background. 

I cut all my designs from patterned paper - using a 6x6 paper pad for my flowers as well as some vellum and layered them all together.

 I love how the flowers turned out! You won't have to wait too long for this file, it will be uploaded VERY soon :)

If you want to see how my process for this page came together, please check it out on my YouTube channel:
