Another week is just finishing. Time to relax, and recharge before Monday comes by. It is amazing how fast time is running, we are headed to the middle of Summer (here in Canada) and finally the weather has cooled off a bit, and we are enjoying beautiful Summer days. How about a bit of inspiration for the weekend, maybe this will be your starting point for a new project!
This week, we asked the Nerd Girls to showcase out free cut files in their projects, and we are floored by what each of them shared on social media. First up is Mari.
Mari chose the Stellar Shapes cut file to create this gorgeous page about her daughter and soon -to-be Son-in-law.
Mari used a bit of Distress Oxides to create the soft mixed media behind each of the shapes. The colors in the background bring the detail of the cut outs, and match all the embellishments from Pebbles’ Patio Party collection.
The soft background contrasts and complements the picture beautifully. The well placed cut outs just frame the picture nicely. SUch a beautiful layout, Mari!
Next is Gisele and a gorgeous double page layout
Gisele chose the Together Hearts cut filel to create the two pages of her layout. She backed each of the hearts with papers from Simple Stories’ “Hello Summer” collection, and framed each of ther grand-nieces pictures with the cut out.
Gisele used papers from the Hello Summer collection to form the background of the layout, as well as to layer the pictures of her grand-nieces. She added lots of details using the stickers that come included in the collection, as well as some puffy hearts from Pinkfresh Studio.
She also combined some fussy cut florals from the Hello Summer collection withe chipboard stickers from Crate Paper’s Wild Heart collection, and stickers from Photoplay’s Stuck on You collection. Such a beautiful and very colorful double page, Gisele.
Last is Nathalie with a light take on this week’s focus.
Nathalie used the Let The Sunshine In cut file to create a large focused title/background for her page. She used Vicki Boutin’s Art Crayons to create a soft mixed media look for this page, using the colors of Simple Stories’s “Hello Summer” collection as inspiration.
She backed the cut out with papers from the Hello Summer collection. A bit of foam adhesive creates that soft shadow in the page and behind the cut-out.
So many fun elements and beautiful florals in the Hello Summer collection! Nathalie combined both to create clusters around the picture and layout. Beautiful work, Nathalie
Well that is all for us this week. We hope that you are inspired to visit the Scrapbook Nerd online store and download a few of our free cut files, and also check all the new collections arriving at the store.
Til next time.
