Superfecta of Cut Files June 07, 2016 07:00

Hey there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share my latest project with you. This week, Nicole has challenged a few of us on the design team to use four or more of the Just Nick digital cut files on our projects! That's quite the superfecta!! It was a challenge for me but I did just that!

To create the above layout, I used the following 4 digital cut files from Just Nick;

This was a bit of a challenge for me as I like the elements on my layouts to have purpose or meaning. There needs to be some relevance to the story, not just elements thrown on there for the sake of having more. Each of the 4 (or more) cut files needed to be on the layout for a reason.

The Let It Shine Background and the "innards" of Radiate combined to make the sun - easy, no problem there. The new font, Script Font, I used a sketch pen with then cut out the outline of the file with my Silhouette for the title. Then the "today" file folder from the File Folders collection served well as a tie in. As the file is cut from a multi colored patterned paper, it served well to tie the multiple elements and colors together.

I love how the title "sunshine" turned out using a sketch pen and then digitally cutting that file! It took a bit of manipulating to get the individual letters to weld but fortunately Nicole leaves lots of "extra" on the letters. This additional swoosh, allows you to either cut or overlap the swoosh of the letters to create a symmetrical word. I can't wait to do this again and use my watercolors or Gelatos within the pen outline!

Today I challenge you to create a layout using 4 or more Just Nick digital cut files on your next project! Thanks for stopping in today!

 

 


Enjoy the Moment for Fancy Pants Week! May 26, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

 

Hey everyone, 

What a fun week so far, right? I absolutely love the Attwell collection we received from Fancy Pants for our team up. I thought the colors would work really with a kraft cardstock base and I also decided to use some relatively new cut files, that are in the shop.

Here is the page I created:

I absolutely love any cut file I can use as a background and incorporate lots of different colors and patterns. The radiate file was so fun to use! I chose to cut it with kraft and layer on top of kraft. It creates a really neat dimensional look. To add the pattern papers, I just held the negative of the cut file and cut around it. Super easy and it fits perfectly behind the cut file. 

The fun was figuring out how I wanted to spread out the patterns and give some good balance. 

How fun are those tags? By layering them under the photo, it helped to create my visual triangle with the color scheme. I'm all about visual triangles. Perhaps a bit obsessed. 

Here are a couple more close ups...

I love how most of the pattern papers have a solid color on the other side. One of them worked perfect to create my title as the color went with the design.

I added some faux stitching around the cut file to help ground the overall design. 

Thanks for swinging by today! I hope you are enjoying the focus and fun on the blog, this week, as we party with Fancy Pants Designs!
