Hello Friends!  I'm back with another Memory Planner idea using the File Folders cut file.  You can see my first post here.

I added another older cut file from November 2020 called Countdown.  This is perfect for adding a bold look to my planner.

And then the last cut file is brand new for August 2021 called Fun Florals.  I cut several out from different pattern papers.

To incorporate the File Folders in this Memory Planner spread, I used the chevron design and then cut a plain folder to layer under it in a bolder pattern paper to contrast with the top.  This was a busy week, and I tend to not take as many photos, so the File Folder cut file added a nice base, color, and texture for me to then add photos, Countdown Numbers, and Fun Florals around and on top.

Then I went back with more embellishments, journaling, and stamping to finish this side.

Just like with a layout, to help balance this spread, I added more Fun Florals using the same pattern papers.  That blue flower on the left helps to really anchor and bring focus, so I worked off of that by using the same color of label stickers for my journaling, Fun Florals, and stamping in blue.

This is probably my most favorite current Memory Planner spread.  I just love the look of the chevron File Folder, the Countdown numbers, and the Fun Florals.  Hope you give these a try in your next project.  Mix pattern paper and textured, colored cardstock for your cut files from JustNick Studio!

Hello Friends!  Today I'd like to share a spread in my memory planner from Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Inserts using the new Sunshine and Live in the Moment cut files and an older one called File Folders.

I have a few more ideas of how to use these folders in my memory planner and may just give them a try and share more later.  For this project, after ungrouping the design and resizing the today folder, I duplicated, mirrored it and then weld it to make a folder.  I just had to make sure that 'today' was upside down on the bottom part of my cut file.  

I used just the 'sunshine' cut file on the left to fill up space over pattern paper.  This was in February and it was chilly for us.  Using the cut file with the puffy alphas and stickers helped take the place of just journaling that it was cold.  Makes it a little more cheerier especially since this was Valentine's week.

For my folder on the right, I backed the 'today' to stand out with the same pattern paper from the left side, and then filled up the front with lots of embellishments and stamps to create a blocked or grid look.

I used more pattern paper on the inside and then used the 'live in the moment' cut file over it with more embellishments.  For the top, I printed a 4x6 photo, traced, trimmed and adhered.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Will be back with more inspiration using the File Folders and more cut files in my memory planner to share.

Hello Friends!!  I am back on the JustNick blog to share more ways to use the cut files as stencils, but this time in my memory planner.  I first opened and edited the Pumpkin Tags and cut just one plain tag from white cardstock.

After my tag was cut, I used a makeup blending brush to brush on red dye ink onto both sides of the tag using the Geo Stencil.

Then I used the same ink to stencil through the Good Times cut file.

Once that was inked, I traced the outside of the cut file with a black pen, then used a tiny makeup blending brush and black ink to add shading all the way around each letter.  I wanted a distressed look to the letters as well as softens the pen lines.  Then I stamped a sentiment on top of this.  What is great about this idea is I have five layers of media on top of this tag but there is no bulk.  This makes it perfect for my memory planner.  I just used washi tape along the right side to create a hinge.

The other side, I left the one layer of stencil, and added my journaling, more stamping and a few die cuts to finish.

I finished my weekly memory planner with photos, journaling, stamping and embellishments creating a collage.

I love the tag as a focal point for my planner with the layers and the hidden journaling.  I hope this gives you more ideas to try stenciling in your next project!
