Cute As A Button

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another layout for Just Nick Digital Cut Files using the Bitty Buttons Cut File, the Handcut Letters Cut File and the word "cherish" from the Gratitude Cut File.  I thought it was perfect for the title of the layout because this little guy is as cute as a button.  My daughter saw this kid when it was only 20 minutes old.  He was named Rudy.

I cut out paper buttons, the Bitty Buttons Cut File with my Cameo. I also used the Handcut Letters to create the title "As Cute As A Button" and repeated the title to fill the entire page.  I then cut it out on white card stock, flipped over the card stock and backed it with some brown paper.  I also cut out the word "cherish" from the Gratitude Cut File Set.

Thankful Layout

Hello friends! Happy Sunday! Today I am up on the A Flair For Buttons blog sharing a layout on being thankful.  I am thankful that my sister in law was able to find happiness again in her life with her marriage to Ivan after the passing of my brother a few years ago.  He is a great guy and I'm sure my brother would have approved.

 I used the Burlap 2 Flair for all three flair buttons on my layout.  I love the way the flair buttons look like they have been knit and the texture it gives them.  I also used one of my favorite collections by Simple Stories.  It's the Pumpkin Spice Collection.  The papers, enamel dots, chipboard pieces, frames and ephemera make it so awesome.  I love the rustic look of this collection.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Happy creating!

Just Nick Digital Cut Files November Freebie

Hello friends! November seems to be moving right along and I thought I would pop in and let my blog followers know that Just Nick Digital Cut Files offers a free cut file each month.  Here is the layout that I created with the freebie:

 For this month, it is the Leaves Cut File.  The free download is available until midnight CST on November 30, 2015.  Simply use the code LEAVESFREE at checkout.  After November 30,  it can be purchased.  You can download it here.

I began my layout by cutting several leaves on my Silhouette Cameo using the Leaves Cut File with the Echo Park The Story Of Fall 6X6 Paper Pad.  I especially like the idea that I can arrange four 6X6 papers on my cutting mat and cut them all at once. The papers are double sided so there are lots of different patterns and colors.

For the title,  I used the word "smile" from the Capture This Cut File Set, an older cut file in the Just Nick Shop, and cut it out on some gold foil paper.

 After the leaves were cut, I arranged them in a square on the outer edge of the white card stock background and then carefully machine stitched around the outside edge to fasten them. I also like to bends the leaves up so it gives more dimension.

Finally, I  embellished the layout with some sequins, enamel dots and a flair button from A Flair For Buttons.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the free download.  Don't forget to share your creations with us using any of the Just Nick cut files by tagging us at @justnickstudio on Instagram or on the Facebook page here.  

Happy scrapping!

Another Layout With The My Creative Scrapbook November Main Kit

Hello friends! Today I wanted to share another layout that I created from the My Creative Scrapbook Main Kit for November.  I am a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook again this month.  This layout was a lot of fun to create and I wanted to use a lot of photos of things that I am thankful for.

I hand cut the letters of my title from white card stock and then instead of using a Fuse Tool, I machine stitched around the letters leaving a little space so I could add some stars that I punched out with a paper punch.  Then I machine stitched the letters closed.  I also used some chipboard frames to give it a fun look.

This was my favorite layout that I created with the main kit.  I have two more that I will share this month so keep coming back.

Have a great day and be sure and check out all the wonderful kits at My Creative Scrapbook.
