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.

Nathalie’s April Review

Creative Team @ scrapbooknerd.com

Hello everyone!

Spring is in full swing!, and i was inspired in the change of season (colors are starting to show, flowers are blooming, weather is warming up, and no more boots! -at least in my part of Canada-) to create colorful projects for my reveal week, this month.  Here is a review of what i was inspired to create:

  • PERFECT SMILE –  The beautiful triangle pattern in the Joy Parade collection -by Fancy Pants Designs- was the starting point for this layout.   The inky background, and the color combination were just a welcome compliment to a super fun picture of some of my family.

 

  • SPLASH –  Blog Post tutorial on Distress Oxides –   I love playing with different mediums to create backgrounds for my projects.  This time, I chose to use the new Ranger’s Distress Oxides to create the illusion of splashing water in a layout.  In case you missed it, there is a small video that shows how the background was created (just go to the previous post)

 

  • LOVE WHAT YOU DO –  For this layout, i chose a large hand stitched title, the new distress oxides, embellishments from Simple Stories Faith collection, and  papers from Echo Park’s Just Be You collection to document one of my favorite hobbies -photography-.

 

 

  • AMAZING –  In case you have never seen pictures of my family, we are in love with our 3rd baby, a 6 yr old Boston Terrier named Poochie.   Once I saw the doggie die cut piece in the Chit Chat Chowder collection by Jillibean Soup, I knew that i would be coming home to my desk.  Here is one of the layouts, I have created with this collection (and in case you have extra doggie die cut pieces you are not using,  I would love to add them to my stash!!!)

 

I really hope that this array of colors, textures and designs inspire you to visit the Scrapbook Nerd  store to check all the new collections that are always being added to their shelves.  Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions on how any of these came together.

Keep on Craftin’!!

Crate Paper Confetti collection with Joy

Creative Team @ scrapbooknerd.com

Hello friends,
My projects this week were inspired by some old photos from my mother’s side of our family. These photos are from the late 1930’s we think. My grandmother and her friends and the location is unknown. I wanted the papers to support the time period of the photos and I knew that Crate Paper would be a perfect fit.
The florals and distressed papers work so well and you can find those in all of the Crate Paper collections. 🙂

I’m not normally drawn to the floral background in this next layout but it’s perfect!Verna 1930s 5 verna 1930s 6 Verna 1930s 7

These muslin bags were fun to make. I used the stencil included in the kit, paint & mist to create the circle background, and a few die cuts from the ephemera pack. I attached everything with the tiny attacher staples, glue dots or pop dots.
