Merry And Bright Tree December 15, 2016 07:00 1 Comment
Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here today sharing a festive layout of my Christmas tree from a few Christmases past.
I began my layout by using some distress ink and a water pen to watercolor the white card stock and let it dry.
For my tree, I inserted a sketch pen in my Silhouette Cameo and sketched the design around the one tree shape from the Tree Trio 2 set and then I removed the sketch pen and inserted the cutting blade in the machine and offset it so I could cut the design out. Hand stitching always gives the project more texture and a homespun feel to the layout so I opted to hand stitch with green embroidery floss around the sketch line.
To add lots of depth to the tree, I placed a sheet of green plaid paper underneath. This seemed to do the trick as the cut tree shape bended the card stock upwards to give it the depth I was looking for.
I also used the Merry & Bright phrase from the Holiday Sentiments collection for my title.
First I cut it on my Cameo with some red plaid paper and used some liquid dimensional adhesive to give it more depth. To keep the title securely in place, I machine stitched the title down because it tends to curl when dimensional adhesive is applied.
The embellishing was fun! I used some sheer ribbon as "garland" by twisting the ribbon and securing it with scotch tape on the backside of the tree and then created some bows out of different colors of ribbon and added some flair buttons on top of the bows to look like "ornaments". To complete the embellishing, I added some sequins from my stash to the tree to give it more sparkle and some wood stars that give it a rustic feel.
I love experimenting with the cut files and trying various techniques. I hope you enjoyed my layout.
Be sure and check out all the amazing designs in the Just Nick shop. There are new ones added each and every week. Have a wonderful, creative day!

12 Days of Giveaways - Day 5 Merry Christmas | Tarrah McLean December 05, 2016 07:00 5 Comments
It's Tarrah McLean back with you today!
Today is the 5th day of the 12 days of Giveaway here on the Just Nick blog - which is so exciting! Nicole has outdone herself with all the designs for this giveaway and you can keep your eyes on the lookout for some beautiful new and FREE cut files coming up in the next days! The design team have created wonderful projects to showcase each design and for inspiration.
I am sharing the layout that I created using the free cut file for today - the Tree Trio 2 cut file.
I kept my layout fairly simple for a change and I like how it turned out! I cut the three trees from 3 different patterned papers and placed them framing my photo slightly.
By adding some layering pieces like stickers and small embellishments I was able to add some extra interest to my page without completely covering up the tree cut files I created. A large chipboard title was begging to be used I I would have had it for like 8 years I think!!) so I finally got to use it!
Today’s design – Tree Trio 2 - is yours for FREE today only!
