JustNick Cut File Store

You Have my Heart | Niki Rowland February 28, 2019 07:00

Hi there! Niki here today with another love themed layout. I've used two files from the store to create this layout: Heart Background 8, which is a very beautiful delicate file, and Lots of Love 2.
I cut the Heart Background 8 from an irridescent glitter paper. This can be tricky to cut, especially with such a fine cut file but it actually cut through really well. I very carefully peeled the hearts off the mat and stuck it onto a piece of white card. I then stuck all the internal hearts in...so this took a little while!
Once the Heart Background was in place, I then cut the Lots of Love 2 file in black card and stuck this onto the background. I raised it up on foam pads. At this point my background was complete so I could get on with making the rest of my layout!
I've used Crate Paper LaLaLove for this layout so I added lots of hearts and embellishments from that collection. I created a title out of Thickers in multi fonts.
Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping xx

XOXO Love | Majken Pullin February 5, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick fans!  Majken here with you today, and we're sharing love-themed projects with you to kick-start February.  For my project I went a different path than the normal red or pink colors and instead captured a layout using blues to show love for my son.  He's now 10 years old, but I love going back and looking at photos from when he was a baby and toddler because that phase just passes way too quickly!  I used the Boys Rule collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

XOXO Love

My layout uses two brand new cut files to the JustNick store, so be sure to go get them today!  I used XOXO Background 3 and Lots of Love 2.

My first task was to cut out each cut file using my Silhouette Cameo on white textured cardstock.  I trimmed the XOXO Background 3 cut to place down the left side of my layout to use as a background. 

After playing around with the photo and matting it with different papers, I included the Lots of Love 2 file at an angle.  But I felt the cut file was lost because it seemed "flat" so I decided to repeat cutting it using dark blue patterned paper, and I used it as a shadow to help the words "pop" off the page.

This technique is easy to do.  I even used foam tape to bring the shadowed cut file up a little more from the page to give it even more dimension.

It's fun to create a layout about love that uses non-traditional "love" colors.  The JustNick shop has so many love cut files to choose from, so don't be shy - grab a few today!

Enjoy your February.  XOXO <3
