Hi there!

Nathalie back with you today with a new project using some of the Just Nick Studio cut files.   I love all things Fall, and as soon as Cat Martin (one of our past designers) released her new digital collection, Norwegian Wood.   The idea of building a forest scene/diorama came to my mind.

To create the frames that are in the background and around the page, i  used the Floral Corner and Graphic Frames cut files.

 

 

 

First i copy and welded a few of the Flower Corner cut file so that they form a square of flowers on the mat.  

 

 

Then i attached one of the Graphic Frames to the flower square and sent it to cut from white cardstock.   I cut two frames, one to fit the entire page, and a smaller one at about 2 inches shorter.

 

 

Before gluing pieces to the page, the smaller frame was use as a mask to add a bit of color (so that it match the tones in the collection)to the center of the page - I used VIcki Boutin Crayons for this-.  

 

 

Each frame was backed with colored vellum (also created with VIcki Boutin Crayons) and then a bit of foam adhesive was used to create the dimension on the page.   Since the background and frames are doing a lots of the work, just a few decorations from the collection were needed to complete this page.

 

Love how this turned out.   Sometimes all  it takes is a few cut files to translate your ideas into the perfect layout.  Remember to stop by JustNick Studio to check the cut files used in this project, and all the new designs being added weekly.

You can always contact me if you have questions on how this was put together.

# SAY WHAT? | Nathalie DeSousa August 16, 2018 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today!  We are in the middle of a hot summer here in Toronto, so my teenage kids have been spending a lot of time indoors with their cell phones at hand.  How fun is it that i can document such a not so fun memory with some of the Just Nick Studio cut files?

 

 

To start, I added a light coat of Vicki Boutin art crayons to the background, so that the cut out would stand out from the page.

 

 

 

 

To create the background, i used the Text Me and Say What? cut files to create the large cut out and words that are set on the background.  

 

 

I used Paige Evans' Pick Me Up collection to back the cut out using a bit of foam adhesive.  The speech bubble words from the Text Me cut file were then glued straight to the patterned that backs the cut out.  In addition, I used the Hashtags 1 cut file to create the small hashtags that are added to the speech bubbles and title.

 

 

 

 

The negative pieces from the Say What? background and the speech bubbles from the Text me cut file were also added to the background.  All the embellishments come from the Emoji collection from Simple Stories.

 

 

 

The title of the page was created by using  the Say What? and Hashtags 1 cut files, backed with papers from Paige Evans collection and then propped with some foam adhesive.

 

 

This layout turned out better than what i had expected, and it perfectly documents those not so shiny moments of my Summer with my teenage kids.

 

I hope this serves as inspiration to use some of the new JustNick Studio cut files, and to stop by the store to check all the designs that are available,   Remember I am always a comment away if you have any questions on how this was put together.
