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.


Cards to Celebrate October 09, 2015 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! Marcia here today.

I have a couple cards to share with you for celebrations. The first one I created with the Lemon Slice digital cut file.

I was eyeballing this cut file when I created my last layout using the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss collection. I kept thinking, "You Put the Lime in the Coconut"... and so the lemon slice became a lime slice. Yes, I know its Fall, but the weather here is still surprisingly warm. I'll take those warm days without complaining because all too soon the snow will be flying here. Here is my card...

I cut the lime twice, once with pattern paper and once with watercolor paper that I then painted a lime green. This way I could swap out parts and make 2 limes.

For my second card I used the new Birthday Sentiments and the Simple Scallop Strips digital cut files.

Birthday cards are by far the cards I make most often. Here is my card...

I decided to create a cake for those candles to sit on and decorate it with the scallop strips. I used the Celebrate sentiment from the same cut file.

Thanks for stopping by.
