Thankful for You Layout and card by Rachel Lowe: November 22, 2017 07:00

I love owls and this owl cut file is just so cute! I have used Bella BLVD Mind Your Manners collection to create my layout. I cut my owl with white card stock and then ungrouped the owl and used patterned paper to fill my owl. To finish it off I have machine sewn the wings.

I then chose the Card Sentiments 3 for my title and a card I knew I wanted to also make.

I decided to make a shaker pocket using vellum on the lower half of my layout. They are simple to make, cut your vellum paper the same size as your background paper, sew around the three edges leaving the top open. Add your sequins or similar (I have also add some small cork hearts) and then sew up the top.

 

I then added a bright coloured patterned paper piece to the top of my layout ensuring it covers the top of the vellum. I added a scallop border also between the pattern paper and vellum. I then attached my owl with foam tape. I then tucked my photo slightly under the owl. I have used the Thankful card sentiment enlarging.

I have added some typed journalling and finished my layout off adding a die cut owl and word sticker bottom right of the layout.

Now its time to shake!!!!!!!

I have used the exact same process to make my card just on a smaller scale. I have used the Grateful card sentiment and added inside my card. I used brighter coloured sequins on my card and added a die cut flower inside. My sequins are from Speigelmom Scraps and they are just gorgeous.

 

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful scrappy week!

 


HEY THERE September 03, 2017 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie here with a new layout that is all about my teenage son!.  I love my kids, but i find that it is easier to document my daughter, so this time,  I chose to create a page that combines the Positive One and Positive 3 Backgrounds to document my boy!

 

 

 I wanted something that will bring the eye to the picture, and at the same time will be graphic and simple.   The Positive One and Positive Three backgrounds were perfect for what i had in mind, even when the design changed a bit along the way.

 

 

 

 

Firstly, I isolated a single cross from both the files.  Then used the cross from the Positive One file to sketch some crosses on half of the page, and used the same design  (in three different sizes) to cut some crosses from vellum.  I proceeded to poke holes in the sketched designs, and used thread to back stitch the designs.

 

 

Next i used the Positive 3 cut file's isolated cross to cut some designs out of the papers from the Boys Front collection from Pinkfresh Studio.  Once everything was cut, then a bit of foam adhesive was used to attach the crosses just to half of the page, as if they all were leading to the picture.

 

 

 

After the graphic background, just a few more details around the picture complete the page.    I love the final look of the page, along with the contrast in dimension, and it all was created by using the simple designs of the two cut files.   That is why i love cut files!!!

 

Remember to check the JustNick store for these, and all the rest of cut files available.  All the designs are so versatile, and you can easily create unique pages with them.  I am always a comment away, if you have a question on how this came together.

 

See you all around!

 


All of Me Loves All of You February 03, 2017 06:00

Hey everyone!  Cathy here with a fun lovey dovey layout for you all.  I absolutely love the All of Me cut file and I knew immediately that I wanted to see it in black with gold ink splatters on it, so with that for the basis of my layout I set out to find a picture of my husband and I!  I ended up printing one that wasn't the best quality, but that I loved anyway, so I just kept it black and white and made it a very small photo, that way the title could really take centre stage.  I love the idea of adding other textures on my layouts so I used some beautiful striped ribbon to compliment my page.  I fussy cut out a cute little bird from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection.  I loved how well those Pinkfresh Studio hearts from the Indigo Hills collection matched with all my colours so I added lots of those too!  I absolutely love how well a tiny photo tucks in around my big title, it brings a feeling of cohesion and unity to all the elements going on in my layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video on my YouTube channel to see how this layout came together and to see what happens when you have a terrible accident while scrapping!

 

 

 

 


Little Moments June 22, 2016 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today with some layout inspiration using this months Freebie cut file; the Tic Tac Toe Background. You can download this file for free until June 30th using the code TICTACTOEFREE at checkout,

This was a bit of a challenge for me, not being a grid based scrapbooker, but I love a challenge to get me out of my comfort zone and try something different. I really love how my layout turned out...

I used the Elle's Studio Little Moments collection and sized my cut file openings to 2" x 2" so that these square project life cards would fit in the openings. I like the ombre effect I achieved by backing the cut file with the ombre pink pattern paper. I filled the solid areas with my photos,  I didn't have enough photos for all the spaces so this vellum heart ephemera piece worked well to fill that last little space. 

I even placed my title over two of the squares.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out all the fabulous new designs in the JustNick Studios on-line store.


Scrappy Pals - PageMaps Inspired Layout March 15, 2016 07:00

If you are a sketch fan and a digital cut file fan then the past few blog posts have been right up your alley! Today I have another layout to share to add to the PageMaps/Just Nick collection seen here recently!

I incorporated the one of the flowers from the Basic Flowers set and the Butterfly Background file into this layout that is based on an 8.5x11 sketch from Becky. You can see the full collection of March sketches HERE; the sketch that this layout is based upon is the second from the bottom.

The butterfly background file I cut from vellum for a subtle effect of the butterflies flitting across the watercolored background. The flower is a soft peachy/pink color that stands out a tad more but is still subtle. I really wanted the picture to be the main focus of the page with the cut files melded into the background.

The main cluster of the page is more prominent and rather "adherent" to the sketch. while the cut files are more of my substitution for the half circles and banners sticking out from the top of the cluster.

Don't forget to use the code PAGEMAPSFREE at the Just Nick store from now until April 30, 2016 to grab any one design of your choice for free! Pair it up with a PageMaps sketch and be sure to share it with us on FaceBook or Instagram!


Love, Love, Love All You Need Is Love February 08, 2016 07:00

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing with you a love themed layout of my oldest son and daughter in law on their trip to Europe.  

I love working with vellum and I had some red heart embossed vellum in my stash that I thought would work perfectly for this layout and Just Nick Cut Files.

I cut out the Hearts, Infinity Hearts Frames and Lots of Love cut files on my Silhouette Cameo.  To adhere the vellum, I machine stitched the cut designs in place so there was no adhesive showing through onto the right side.

I hope you are inspired to use vellum on your projects with Just Nick cut files.  Check out all the designs, including the designs I used on this layout in the Just Nick shop here.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!

Cut Files Used:

Hearts

Infinity Hearts Frames

Lots Of Love
