JustNick Cut File Store

It Won't Rain All The Time - Cathy Martin July 26, 2017 06:00

Hello hello hello!  It's Cathy and I'm back showcasing another layout featuring one of Nicole's amazing cut files!  I find that the trend of plus signs seems to come and go, but I for one am a big fan!  I really loved all the Positive cut files in the shop, so I chose the Positive One file.  I did a little revamping with the file while I was in the Silhouette software.  I duplicated the file so that I could shrink it down and have lots of plus signs.  I then deleted random signs here and there, just to add a bit of visual interest.

My next step was to back my pluses with lots of different patterned papers from my stash as well as some from 6x6 paper pads.  I used a combo of newer papers from the Little by Little collection along with some papers that have been floating around my stash pile.  I left some of the pluses blank and then put another piece of white card stock behind the whole thing.  I added some details around the white ones with some ticking and then got to embellishing!

I am so flippin' happy with how this layout turned out.  The story behind my layout is about my son and his dealings with expressing and recognizing his emotions, and I just love the juxtaposition of the happy plus signs with the overall story of the layout!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today!

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today but sadly its my last post as part of the Just Nick team. It's always sad to say goodbye but its time for some new, fresh ideas and faces! 

This week our theme is to 'Make It Masculine' so I created a layout about my eldest son who thinks he is a rockstar at age 11!

I wanted to use some of the newest cut files just recently added to the Just Nick store...I decided to use the Rockstar title and the treble clef symbol from the Rockstar cut file set and I also used the new Star Background 5!

I used some Bella Blvd products, mostly the Alex collection plus some other bits that I have had for ages! The black puffy star is an Amy Tangerine one and the black and white phrase stickers are by Tim Holtz.

The background is a transparency that I have machine stitched to the white cardstock, I did think about adding some star confetti behind the transparency so it becomes a shaker style layout but I thought it may have ended up looking a little too busy! 

That Rockstar flair is from D-Lish Scraps, a small embellishment store in Australia...I love their flair buttons so much! They always seem to have the perfect ones that suit my boys and my layouts!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today and in the past, I have really appreciated everyone's support with my layouts that I have created for Just Nick Studio! Thank you so much to Nicole and the rest of the team for having me, I will miss this team so much!

Happy creating and see you all around scrapping land!
