Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a few ideas on documenting your every day using JUST NICK STUDIO cut files in a different way.  I hope you all are safe and healthy  in your corner of the world.  I decided to document this period of our lives in a more structured way, so i am at best moving my handwritten notes to my family album in a hybrid style documenting.


Though i still cut a few pieces for my pages, i decided to use the cut files as digital stamps for my layouts.  


I started by using my Silhouette to print the TN REMEMBER THIS cut file to size and print the flower screen on vellum.  I glued this to the page, and create a large pocket for my journal spot.



I used the THIS IS LIFE cut file to cut the words Life & Here+Now images to become the titles of the page. Once i cut them i used a super fine black liner to make them stand out on the page.



I love working with digital files specially on hybrid layouts, as there is so much you can do with a cut file besides creating a cut out.



For this page, i pulled the THANKFUL TN  cutfile, and transform it to a background for my page.  I used the Silhouette machine to add my lines of journal  before printing.   To break the straight lines of the title and journal lines, i added a few butterflies from one upcoming cut file to the shop.



Since i wanted  to balance the page, i  made sure my pictures also were placed on a block formation. I added a small decoration to each picture ( This is Life cutfile) and then added a small BUTTERFLY cut out in between the pictures)




I hope these have inspired you to use the JustNick studio cutfiles in a new way.  Nicole's designs are amazing and so versatile.  Check them out!

Keep Safe friends!!

Everyday Documenting | Nathalie DeSousa March 12, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today sharing a few pages of my daily family album.  I have kept detailed journals of my life my entire life; TNs are probably my go-to format of documenting.  I love the small format, as it allows me to create my pages quickly but still keep them meaningful.   Cut files are a great addition to TNs, as they help to tell your story, and even can help you to connect stories.   So, it was easy to pull a few cut files from the JustNick studio shop to create these:



I started with the first story of the day, and used the new   Spring Florals 2 to create the embellishment for the page with my daughter's picture.  Since i keep the  pages simple, and the die cut is so delicate, it just needed a few extra embellishments.





 Since, i have two stories to tell on this day, i chose the Lotus Background cut file to create the page divider.   I size down the cut file and then added a border around it so i can add the  holes for the ring binder.



I added the title of the page on a small label and glued it to the divider, then used  the same size label to  create the journal spot for the second part of the spread .



For the second layout, i used the Varsity Alpha  to cut  the word YOU  from the paper, then decided to use the negative page as the background for the page, and added the cut out letters as a title at the bottom of the picture.




These pages took a small amount of time to  put together, and that divider screen helped to tie both stories together seamlessly.



Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio shop to check the cut files used here, and all the new designs that Nicole is adding to the shop.

'Til next time,
