JustNick Cut File Store

Best Day Ever | Morgan Langley July 04, 2017 07:00

     Hello crafty friends! My name is Morgan and I am so excited to be sharing my first layout I created for Just Nick!

     For my layout I used the "Graphic Chevron Background" first as a guideline for my paper embroidery. Rather than cutting the file I used a grey Silhouette Sketch pen on white card stock.

     After sketching the cut file, I poked my holes and starting stitching with shades of blue and pink thread. For the larger sections not filled with lines, I stitched around the outside and then added pieces of scrap paper I had from the Crate Paper Oasis collection. I also used the branding strips of the 6x6 Oasis pad to machine stitch around the outer edges of the layout. 

     For my title I used the "Best Day Ever" cut file, cutting it on hot pink cardstock and then cutting three pictures from my family vacation to Mexico to fit into the word DAY. 

  

   I also typed my title with my typewriter on white paper and added it in the center of the layout under the A. I stamped my date in the right hand corner by stamping the year and then layering the date again using a roller stamp. I love this technique for really making the date stand out.

     Clustered around "DAY" are palm branches from the cut file "Take me to Paradise". I love these leaves and use them on almost every summery project I make! I also clustered some word stickers, sequins, puffy stickers, and embellishments. 

    I splatter painted my background with light and dark pink watercolors, added sequins, and I love how it turned out! Thank you so much for reading about my crafty process and I hope you will try and make your own projects using these beautiful cut files!
