Grateful... Thankful November 23, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone! Donna here to share with you my take on this week's theme.

My page is about my family. I am thankful for them for all the joy, happiness, the craziness, the love. Though my daughter just turned two last October, she has grown beautifully, smart and very active lol! I am so thankful I have a husband like my husband. He puts up with me no matter how crazy I am at times (most of the time haha!). Our family is not perfect. But we care, love and believe in each other. We take the good and the bad, that's what make our family beautiful.

And here is what I created

I converted the photo into B/W to avoid clashing with the soft colors of I used on my layout. Originally, color Red is dominant in the photo.

I wanted to create an airy feeling so I just used light/soft color. I painted the leaves, stems and the words "grateful" and "thankful" with just hints of watercolor

I love how the mixing of papers and embellishments from different manufacturers turned out too! 

This part is one of my fave in this page. I just tucked the leaves and stems under the strips of papers, adding texture and dimension to the page.

I hope you liked it!

Thanks for dropping by!

Cut files used: Many Thanks, Leaves 3 and Stems 2.

 


Stuck?! Sketches team up! September 18, 2016 09:00 1 Comment

Good morning everyone! Nicole here to let you know all about a team up that we will be sharing, starting tomorrow, on our blog with the team of Stuck?! Sketches!

Laura has created a great sketch for some of our teams to both use, and we have combined some of our JustNick cut files with that same sketch for some fun results!

I played along with the sketch too and thought I would share a preview of that today. A sketch can truly do wonders for my mojo, and adding in some cut files, make a page come together quite easily too!

I used the new Rustic Leaf Frame cut file for this page, and you can see it makes a large impact on the page. Once I die cut it from the patterned paper, I simply added a few pieces of green behind the leaves and voila!

I added in some popped up diecut stickers and enamel dots around the frame area. I love combining the die cut frame with products I can easily get from a manufacturer!

I also die cut the same leaves and stems out of vellum in a slightly smaller size and tucked those in around the frame to add some softness to the ring area.

Cut files used:

Leaves 2

Stems 2

Rustic Leaf Frame

Now, I am sure you will be able to do wonders with this same sketch! Come back tomorrow to see the sketch and what Laureen did with it! Plus, you will get a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to our store too! A win -win I think!

Have a creative Sunday!


Autumn came September 10, 2016 07:00

Hi cut file fans -

it's Laureen here with you today and I have a fall layout.

I don't mind it still being 30 degrees here in Germany - that won't stop me starting the crafting for my favorite season - fall! You better prepare yourself for tons of fall layouts, cards and other projects coming your way from my posts for Just Nick.

As you probably already know, us girls were challenged to use at least 3 cut files for out page this week. I managed to use not only 3 but 7 different files. But to be fair - I combined most of them into my selfmade title! I loved the look of the title I made for my Lucky Stars layout - which you can find HERE - and decided to make a title again.

Here is the page I made.

I searched Pinterest for fall quotes and found this one I really liked - Autumn comes with wind & gold - perfect match for my picture of gold fall leaves.

I used two Alphabets to build my title - Simple Set Alphabet and Script Alpha 2 - and started my building my quote. After that was done it was missing some bits and so I pulled one leaf from Leaves 2, the solid stem from Stems and the outline of one leaf from Leaf it to me and added those into the mix. Just weld it all together and you are good to go.

For this layout the new fall collection Warm and Cozy from Jen Hedfield and Pebbles is perfect! I cut my title out of one of the woodgrain papers and Autumn Ring from a different  white woodgrain paper.

Autumn Ring may be one of my new favorite cut files for fall themed layouts - I used a patterned paper behind it and to soften the look of it, added a sheet of vellum on top.

I also cut a few extra stems from Stems and Stems 2 as accents and added those around my page - and easy as that my cut file work was done!

 

Here are a few close-up shots:

Thank you so much for checking out the layout - I truly hope you like it!

Onto the next time -

Laureen

Crafting off the Page with Cut Files May 18, 2016 10:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone.  I wanted to show you a project I created with my daughters.  They hold a lemonade / bake sale every year and we always dress it up with all sorts of crafty elements so when this year rolled around, I knew exactly which JustNick cut files to use.

Can you spot the three cut files I used? It's a bit of an I-Spy game so let me walk you through it and show you a tutorial.

This entire decor of the lemonade stand was inspired by this paper flower garland I wanted to create.  I hand cut some of the flowers from the Paige Evans' Fancy Free collection for Pink Paislee.

Then I chose two flowers from the Lazy Daisies cut file and added circles for holes in the middle of them so I could string them on the twine.

Next I downloaded the Stems 2 cut file created a hole for the twine to go through the leaf of the stem.  To do this, I created a small circle nested in a large circle.  I then stacked it on top of the stem and welded it together.

I then strung them on the twine and hung them from the top of the lemonade stand.  

Next I created a little sign for the stand inviting people to try the lemonade.  I chose the Lemon Slice cut file and then I typed "pucker up" and cut it out of coordinating paper.  

I created several other elements using my Silhouette. You can find the details for those on my blog.
