THANKFUL FOR THIS BOND | Nathalie DeSousa November 22, 2018 07:00

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Friends!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout that celebrates the sweet and special bond between humans and pets.  We love our baby so much, and he loves us just as much that i decided to pull a few of the beautiful JustNick studio cut files to create this new page.

 

 

I wanted something soft for the background, so i decided to hand stitch the  Heart Strings Background with white thread, and then back the heart spaces with colorful hearts cut from the  new Whimsical collection.

 

 

 

 

The curvature of the lines brings so much movement to the layout; and the space  created with the stitching was the perfect spot to add some sentiments using the collection's rub-ons or stamped images -that correspond to respective heart color-.

 

 

 

To create the title of this page, the Gratitude cut file was used to cut the word 'Thankful' from white cardstock.  This was propped on some foam adhesive onto the layout's background.

 

 

 

Once the picture was placed on the page, i used a few of the Whimsical collection flower ephemera to create clusters around the page.   To bring more of the cool tones to the page (tried at best to tone block the clusters), I  had to use the Stems 2 cut file to cut some extra leaves from white cardstock,  These were then colored with watercolor so that they take the hues in the hearts.

 

 

This page is so full of texture and movement.   The color of the hearts bring plenty of color and interest to this page,and i just love how it all works together!   Remember to stop by JustNick Studio store to check all these cut files.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Have a blessed day!

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a layout that is a little different for me! I love watercoloring, but I usually keep it simple with a few splatters here and there. For this one though I cut the different stems from "Stems 2,4, and 5" (three cut files) and water colored away! I did a rainbow of coloring and mixed shades and amounts of water to get the look I wanted. While the paint was still wet I did splatters of darker/lighter colors or just water drips to make the paint spread. I love the way it turned out and it was SO fun and care free! 

I added super minimal embellishments with some corresponding sequins, flowers, little birds, ladybugs, snails, etc. Then I used mixed letter stickers to create my title!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Pick up these unique stem cut files yourself and see what you can create! It's always fun to try something new!

 

 

 


Enjoy The Moment July 09, 2017 07:00

Hello everyone!

  I am Nathalie (aka Tachita, my nickname for as long as I can remember), and I am super excited to be part of the 2017-2018 Design Team for JustNick Studio.

  I am grateful to GOD first and foremost for all his blessings, and to Nicole for inviting me to be part of this amazing group of designers.  My love for photography and memory keeping introduce me to scrapbooking, and I have been hooked on this craft for many years.  I especially love working with cut files, so getting to work and share my projects with Nicole's designs is just a delight.  

  For my first project, i chose to work a monochromatic design with lots of texture -aka stitching- and a few of the store cut files.   

 

 

For this layout,  i chose the gorgeous Floral Burst Background to create the background for the layout.  So I used the cut file to create the large hand stitched flowers in the page.  To add more texture and dimension to the page, some string art was used to fill the inside of each petal on the flowers.

 

 

 

 

It did take some time to complete the designs, but i find hand stitching relaxing!  

 

To create the title of this page, i chose the Enjoy The Moment cut file, and cut it twice from white cardstock.  The two cut-outs were glued together, and then attached to the bottom of the page using some foam dots (i love the little shadow under the  title!)

 

The picture of my daughter holding the littlest one (that is how we call the little cousins around here), was framed with some leaf cut outs created from vellum and white cardstock using the  Stem cut file.   A few pieces stickers, and ephemera pieces from the Rose Quartz collection -Prima Marketing- and Gather collection -Crate Paper- frame the picture.

 

 

What can i say?  I love this page!  It is full of texture, dimension and cut files, not to mention a black and white picture ;)  

 

Don't forget to check the cut files used in this layout in the JustNick store, there are lots of designs available (all beautiful, of course!).  I am a comment away if you have questions on how this layout came together, and/or you can always find me on Instagram - @tachita55 - !!

 

See you all soon!
