Our friends over at The Cut Shoppe have created these lovely cut files, exclusively for Scrapbook Nerd, and we love how versatile they can be when creating all those special projects.  Here are just a few samples of what some of our DT has created using the cut files:

Love layout by Joy using the FREE Crazy Love cut file

Joy’s layout combines a few of her favourite things; paint, stamping, gold splatter, and some of her own pattern paper. Joy likes to use old scrapbooking paper and gives a new life with acrylic paint, stencils and other mediums. She used that paper behind the LOVE word for a graffiti look.

Using the Luck Stars dies from My Favorite Things Joy die cut the stars from some POW gold glitter paper. When cutting this paper you will need to use a shim as it does have a thin plastic backing on it. The stamping on this layout uses an old Hero Arts Music background stamp.

Joy used Gold Heidi Swapp Gold Lame and some coordinating Dina Wakley Blackberry paint for the splatter on this page.

 

Nathalie used the Crazy Love to document a selfie gone wrong on her page:

She welded the “XO” image a few times to create her background, and then used Pebbles’s Forever My Always collection to back the cut-out, and add some small details to the page.

She added a bit of hand stitching to each of the hearts inside the “O”s and then brought a bit more of that sparkle to the page using some Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze and an Echo Park (Beach Towel) stencil to the background.

This page is filled with small details, that complement that sweet picture of Nathalie’s baby stealing a kiss from dad!.

 

We hope that the free cut files and the samples our DT have provided inspire you to create a special project about or for your loved ones.   Remember to tag/link Scrapbook Nerd whenever you use this project and share it on social media;  we would love to see what you create with these files.

Stop by the Scrapbook Nerd store to pick your free copy of these files, and to check all the new goodies that are arriving daily at the store’s shelves!

Have a Wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Creative Team Weekly Digest

Scrapbook Nerd Creative Team

 

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of inspiration courtesy of the amazing Scrapbook Nerd Design team.

First up is Gisele with a sweet and colorful layout about her grand-nieces.   She is a master at combining colors and designs in one page.  For this page, she is using Photoplay Paper’s “I Love Gymnastics” collection along with a few embellishments from Amy Tangerine, Bella Blvd, and JIllibean Soup.

The colors of this page are the perfect background for the picture of her adorable girls.

 

Next up is Mari with this gorgeous card. She created this Valentine’s card using Yupo paper and Ranger Alcohol Inks; these products are so much fun and so easy to work with. Using the Alcohol Blending Solution, Alcohol Inks and a straw, Mari created the rainbow of colors on the card front. She used a die to cut the card front out. She added the silver glitter die cut using the MFT Mandala Die. Some hearts were cut from glitter paper using a heart punch from her stash. The card front was added to an A2 white card base. A sentiment was added to the inside using the Hero Arts “You Are Loved Messages” stamp set.

This card is truly a work of art.

Be sure to watch Mari’s process video to see how she created her beautiful card.

 

Joy created a few projects using one of this month’s free cut files (LOVE SONG) .   First she used one of the cut file’s images to create this simple layered tag.

 

She then used some of the other cut file images to create this rather masculine card ( just in time for Valentine’s Day!).  Thanks Joy for sharing your projects with us.

 

 

Finally, Nathalie’s Tuesday Tutorial was a new entry to the Silhouette Savvy Series.   Her focus was on showing how easy it could be to create a one-of-a-kind background by simply welding some of the cut file images together.

She then proceeded to show us  how she put the layout together by combining some homemade marbke paper with the beautiful Simple Stories “Romance” collection.

That is all for this week!  AWESOME work ladies!!!

See you all very soon!
