Hello Diana here today and I wanted to share a Mother inspired layout.  I LOVE being a mom--there are definitely days that are better than others, but there sure are some FUN adventures!  A few years ago there was a special activity for women and girls at our church.  They had a photographer there to document the special day--LOVE that I have this momento!  Our family is a bit special in that my mom is an only girl, I am an only girl, and my daughter is an only girl...

On this layout I used 3 different cuts on this layout:

Delicate Flowers

Dream Catcher 1 (coming May 7)

Home Sweet Home

I honestly had a lot of fun mixing papers and backing the cuts with pattern paper!  We would love to see any creation using our cuts!  Please feel free to share them on our Facebook page.  Also, if you share them on Instagram make sure to tag us with @justnickstudio.

Hi everyone!

Donna here sharing my take on this week's theme which is all about "Moms"

For my page, I used the Delicate Florals cut files

I used watercolors and gelatos to achieve the background. With the help of a small piece of plastic sheet, I "scattered" the diluted gelatos and watercolor on the background.

I also used gelatos and watercolor on the delicate florals cut files. I love these! I didn't have a hard time cutting these pretties! I am really getting the hang of using my Cameo :D

I think clustering and layering bits and pieces helped making the delicate floral cut files stand out. I only colored some parts of the florals because I still wanted the white visible

Mother's Day gift May 02, 2016 07:00

Hello and happy Monday!  Jaclyn here to kick off a week of projects inspired by some of the most amazing women in our lives...MOMS! 

I'm always looking for a unique and special gift each Mother's Day to convey to my own Mom just how much she is loved and appreciated.  While just the right store bought gift could certainly do the trick, I knew something handmade would be most cherished and appreciated.  I reached for my crafting supplies and Just Nick cut files to create a pretty and meaningful shadowbox that my Mom can display in her home.

 

The Doodle Flowers cut file is quite fun and whimsical.  However, when it is cut from white cardstock and layered atop a coordinating background, it takes on a much more elegant and sophisticated vibe.

Accenting some of the flowers with buttons creates lots of pretty texture and added dimension, while still keeping the focus on the intricate cut designs. 

I printed my quote on the background cardstock, but wanted to place emphasis on the word 'Mother'.  I used the Outline Alpha to cut out the letters I needed, once in white and another time from a soft metallic lavender cardstock.  The lavender letters are adhered below the white, slightly offset, to create a shadowed effect.  I used my favorite floral from the Doodle Flowers to represent my 'O' in the word mother.  Backing this design with color and pattern allows it and the remainder of the title piece to pop - ultimately becoming the focus of the entire design.

With limited supplies and pretty cut files, a special Mother's Day gift comes together quite quickly and beautifully!

Don't forget to come back by all week long for more inspiring posts and projects celebrating Moms!
