JustNick Cut File Store

You are | Niki Rowland March 27, 2019 07:00

Hey Just Nick fans! Niki here and I have something a bit different from me to share today.  I have used the very lovely 'You Are' cut file from the store. It's new and is completely gorgeous, perfect for documenting my lovely babies.
 
I cut the cut file out of thick Mixed Media style white card. I left it as a whole on the cutting mat. I then applied lots of mixed media paint. Once it was dry I peeled everything off the cutting mat.
I used the backing piece as a template over my background and and carefully pieced each letter back into the gaps, all raised up on foam pads. I then carefully peeled away the backing paper to reveal the coloured letters beneath!
I added in a photo cluster to the right and a smaller embellishment cluster to the bottom left.
I've used a mixture of Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections for this layout, mostly Boys Rule and also a little but of Midnight. I matched the mixed media paints to the Boys Rule collection.
Thank you so much for joining me today for this slightly different style of layout from me. Give this technique a try, it was great fun!
Happy scrapping xxx

This is Me | Niki Rowland January 11, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, Niki here today and welcome to 2019!
Our assignment this week was to create a layout about or 2019 goals or 'all about me'. I chose the 2nd option and went for a layout about myself.
I've used the totally awesome 'Distressed Alphabet' set in the store. I created four words using this alphabet and welded the letters together in the Silhouette Software.  I then cut them from woodgrain paper by Heidi Swapp.
The quote is a line from a Movie song - The Greatest Showman. I changed it slightly to fit a layout about myself ('I am bruised' I changed to 'I am free'). The Greatest Showman is a big hit in our household and we're always singing this song so I thought I would use it but it needed that small change to work for me.
I really love the Distressed Alphabet - the letters are really cool and have created a very interesting looking title.
I used alphabet stickers to add the rest of the quote around the words and then embellished with lots of layers behind my photo and a few embellishments by Pebbles and Pink Paislee.
I added machine stitching through the alphabet stickers to stop them from falling off, and handwrote in my story. Even though these aren't my go-to colours, I like the way the layout turned out.
I have created a process video for this layout which can be viewed below.
Thanks so much for joining me today, happy scrapping xx
