Love In Bloom | Claudia van Rooijen January 17, 2020 07:00

Hello friends! Claudia here and today I'm sharing a layout with you I created using the Crate Paper Hello Love collection and the Fancy Floral Ring cut file. I'm personally not someone who really does anything for Valentines Day but I always love the collections that come out for it because the color scheme is right up my alley. ;)

I decided to use white cardstock for the cut file so that I could then back the florals with the pink ombre paper from the collection. 

I used some gold glittered paper for the middle part of the florals to add some pops of gold and interest to the layout - you can never really go wrong with a touch of gold.

I fussy cut some florals out of the floral paper and placed them on the inside of the circle - the florals in this collection are so pretty!

For my title I used a mix of leftovers to try and create a more interesting looking title. 

I then added some embellishments from the sticker sheet such as a few arrows and gold glitter hearts to finish off my layout.

Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout and hope that you will have a wonderful day.

Happy snow / Nastya Efimenko January 15, 2020 07:00

Hello Everyone! This is Nastya Efimenko and my snow layout.

I used 2 different cut files. The first cut file - Snowflakes

And the second cut file  - Word 4  . I chose the word "Happy "

I attached each letter with paper, then attached them to the background using foam adhesive.

Thank´s so much for looking! ♥

 


Layering cut files ! January 14, 2020 10:19

Nicole here today to share with you a project using  several of the layer-able cut files in the store. 

I started by cutting the Basketweave 2 background from textured white cardstock and popped it over another piece of white cardstock using foam adhesive. 

 You can see I also layered several of our Build a flower cut files together - cutting them from different patterned papers.

 You can create a ton of dimension easily by curling the ends of each petal and even adding small amounts of foam adhesive between some of the layers. 

Just secure the layers together using a button or brad and it keeps it all together in a pretty manner ! 


I hope you are inspired to add lots of layers to your project using g some of our cut files ! 


Trim a Background | Mari Clarke January 13, 2020 00:00

Hey friends, welcome to the Justnick Blog today!  It's Mari Clarke here and today I am sharing a 12x12 scrapbooking layout using the Floral Link Lace background and the Varsity Outline Alpha cut files.  

I started by cutting the background cut file from some American Crafts white cardstock.  I cut the file at 12x12, but then trimmed it down to 11x4 with my trimmer.  This way I was able to maintain the width of the original cut file lines and I can save the part that I trimmed for another project.

I backed the cut file with Heidi Swapp Color Fresh 6x6 patterned papers.  I was going for an aqua, pink and yellow color scheme.

I also backed the Varsity Outline Alphas with the same papers.  I popped all of the cut files up on foam adhesive to give them more dimension on the layout!

You can see how the trimmed background cut file creates a beautiful embellishment on the layout!  The alphas create part of the title "Chillout, Mexico, 2019".  

Be sure to check out all of the awesome cut files in the shop.  There are new files every week!  How fun is that!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

GATHER MEMORIES | Nathalie DeSousa January 10, 2020 07:00

Hi there!  Happy New Year to you all!

Nathalie with you today to share  a new project all about my focus for 2020. Every year i have chosen a word (sort of my OLW) to keep me focused through the year.  After lots of thinking and some bible reading, the word "Gather" kept calling my soul.  So 2020 is the year for gathering moments, people, memories, adventure and no regrets.  To make it visible all i had to do was check some of this week's new JustNick Cut files to create a new layout all about my vision for the year.

 

 

I started this page adding a bit of mixed media to the background.  I chose colors of distress Oxide inks that will match the colors of the Maggie Holmes Heritage collection, and used a brush to applied them to the background.  A bit of water splattering created the bleached effect on the color.

 

 

 

While the background dried, i welded two of the Floral Link Lace cut file images together to form a strip  -using my Silhouette software- and sent it to cut from white cardstock.

 

 

I chose to glue the die cut strip at an angle on the page, i love the soft movement it adds to the page, and allowed me to easily create my visual triangle with embellishment clusters -all from the collection -.

 

 

 

 

To create the title of the page, i used the new Script Alpha 2 cut file to weld together the word "gather", and the pulled the   word "memories" from the Merry Wishes cut file; these words were cut three times from white cardstock.  I glued the die cuts together, then added a light coat of gold watercolor to the top layer.

 

I love the muted color palette of the page, and how the soft background makes the delicate cut file stand out.   The soft shine on the title bring enough color to the page. All in all, I  love this page , its softness and message.

Remember to stop by the Just Nick Studio shop to check all the cut files i have used in this page, and i hope this inspires you to make your vision for 2020 visible in your life,

XO

 


My Goal for 2020 // Sarah Bargo January 9, 2020 07:00

Hey paper peeps! Happy New Year! Do you have any goals for this year? So I fell upon this adorable movie called "Becoming Jane." It's about Jane Austen and I absolutely fell in love! I realized that I had never actually read any of her books, so that is my big goal for 2020! I am going to read all of her books and write about each one in my new "Jane Journal!" Nothing major, just maybe do a cute spread about each one, maybe jot down my favorite quotes and whatnot.. kindof my very own book club :) It's totally going to have an old vintage vibe! So here is my first spread in my travelers notebook "Jane Journal!"

I used 2 different cut files for this one, a darling coffee & tea one called "You Had Me At" and a beautiful "Script Font!" I thought a tea cup would be so cute and fitting, so I framed my photo with it! 

I just love the little steamy swirls coming up so cute! I saw this font and thought oh my gosh that just reminds me of a pretty handwriting that Jane might have had, so I cut her name out and scrawled it up the page like she signed it :)

I can already tell that I'm going to have so much fun with this, I haven't done anything "vintagey" in a long time! 

I adore reading and getting lost in a good book! I'm so excited I hope I can reach my goal! If you would like to join me in doing this challenge, make sure you tag me so I can see your cute journals! Lets use the hashtag #sbjanejournal so we can share idears!

Thank you so much for stopping by! xoxo

 

 


This Year | Bullet Journaling | Patricia Roebuck January 8, 2020 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year, Funky Mandala, Bullet Journaling

Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!!  I want to share with you new pages I created in my Canva Bullet Journal.  I might have been late in finishing my gratitude journal I did in November, but I finished it, and you can see the last page here.  

For today's post, I used the new cut file 'this year' with watercolors and stamps to created a title page.  

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year

To help the pattern paper stand out more against the white page, I added shading with the watercolors around it and also used a pen to outline it.  I did resize the cut file just a bit to fit my page.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year, Funky Mandala, Bullet Journaling

The next page was a full 2-page.  I was going to use the new Funky Mandala cut out in the blue pattern paper, but I decided to continue the inky background but instead of using watercolors as I did on the first page, I used ink pads and a brush.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year, Funky Mandala, Bullet Journaling

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Funky Mandala

I first started by using the negative from the pattern paper to brush on color to my background, then I used the positive (the actual cut file) with inks to create more layers.  I used two shades of ink in the lavender tones, but then pulled in a touch of orange.  Also used it with my stenciled on speech bubbles.  

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year, Funky Mandala, Bullet Journaling

I used the new Script Alpha 2 to merge my Word for 2020 "Surrender" in a darker shade of blue pattern paper to stretch across the bottom of both pages, trimming it where needed.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, This Year, Funky Mandala, Bullet Journaling

I added my journaling on the far left and right, and filled in the speech bubbles with stickers to finish.

There is no limit to how you can create bullet journaling, and having the cut files gives you stencils, masks, and the cut file to add to them!

Thank you for stopping by!!  I Hope this gives you some idea how to get creative in 2020!  I'll be back to share a Traveler's Notebook spread using that same Funky Mandala!


This Year | Kelly Barron January 7, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone! I hope that your holidays were wonderful and filled with many good memories. Today I have a TN spread to share using the This Year cut file. I love to use cut files as titles, and for this spread I am documenting my favorite books from last year.

 

To create this spread I used the sweet Dear Lizzy collection titled She's Magic. My TN is pretty thick and there are a few more books that I'd like to document, so I tried to keep this relatively flat. 

Since I separated the title I erased the line underneath the word using the eraser tool. If this seems intimidating to you, it's an easy cut file to use your scissors and separate them. 

Underneath the title was the perfect space to place an embellishment. I fussy cut the tea cup and the book from a piece of patterned paper, and then layered a heart sticker on top.

For the right side of the spread, I fussy cut the library card and then ran it through my typewriter for the journaling. It's a bit wonky, but I think it adds to the character of the spread. A few more stickers complete this page and I succeeded in keeping this relatively flat!

 

Be sure and stop by the Just Nick store and see all of the new cut files. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that this inspires you to create!


Happy New Year | Claudia van Rooijen January 6, 2020 07:00

Hello friends! Claudia here with you sharing a layout created using the Shattered Windowpanes cut file and a mixture of older Crate Paper collections.

I am documenting my goals for 2020 so I figured this cut file would be nice to use with it since it provides a grid design which is perfect for documenting the new year resolutions.

I used some thickers from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection for the numbers.

 

Then I cut out some squares to fit within some of the others out of white paper (I used the back side of some 6" scraps for this) to write my actual goals on. I honestly never do journaling on my pages (especially not handwritten) because I just don't like my handwriting but for this layout I decided to make an exception.

The last thing I added were some black / gold stars to create a little more interest, I felt like this really made it all come together.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope 2020 has been off to a great start for you!

Xo Claudia

 


Hello 2020 // Jasmin Paar January 4, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone. The topic on the blog is NEW YEAR and i chose two files for my Layout. 

First, i used the STAR CLUSTER cut file.

For my Layout, i chose the color blue. It fits my picture.

But pink had to be too, so i cut some flowers out of a patterned paper.

For the year I used the numbers from the BANNER ESSENTIALS file.

I wish you a wonderful year and see you the next time here on the Blog.

 

 


Happy New Year | Anna Blades January 3, 2020 07:00

Hi Justnick friends and Happy new year!! 

The brand new 2020 is here, a whole year full of possibilities!! 

Today I want to share with you this new year layout, which I made with the "Happy new year" cut file. I love the two different fonts, really pretty!

I covered the word "happy" with Nuvo gold glimmer paste. The celebration of the new year needs shine! I also scattered some tiny golden stars across the page. 

I also used The "Build a pointsetta" cut file, because we keep the Christmas decorations until january 6th. 

 

For this project I used the "Noel collection" from Felicity Jane Studio. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I wish you the best for this 2020 and may all your wishes come true.

 See you soon!


This Year | Monique Liedtke January 2, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Monique here wishing you all a wonderful 2020! I hope you had a fabulous New Year's Eve! Today I'm sharing a layout with my resolutions for the new year. I have to admit that I tend to forget my resolutions pretty quickly, but I do like to make them nonetheless. 

Here's the layout I created, using the "Say What" and "This Year" cut files:

These are the cut files I used: "Say What" and "This Year" (will be added to the store soon!), both of which I cut from a sheet of white cardstock:

I'm a huge fan of Doodlebug Design's products so I chose a mix of their collections to create this page. My resolutions were typed in Word and then printed on five different pieces of patterned paper (Doodlebug's Petite Print). Next I cut them in the right shape using my Silhouette Cameo.

Before adhering the word bubbles cut file I added some yellow paint to my white cardstock background (sprayed this on a piece of plastic packaging and wiped it over my background paper). 

As Doodlbug's papers are already so colorful I decided to leave the cut files white and use a black & white photo. I matted the photo on two pieces of patterned paper and created a little cluster on the left side: 

On the right side of the photo I wrote a little more about my resolutions:

I also added a few stickers here and there and after adding the compulsory machine stitching I considered my layout done! 

Hope you like it! Thank you so much for stopping by on this second day of the year. Don't forget to check out the JustNick store for these and many more fabulous cut files! 

xoxo


This Year 2020 | Majken Pullin January 1, 2020 07:00

Hello to you all, and a very happy new year to you!  Majken here to share the very first JustNick Studio project of 2020, and I have a different take on a scrapbook layout.  In fact, it's a bit of a combination of a layout and a bullet journal.  I decided to create a layout where I will keep track of new things I do throughout this new year.  So rather than traditional journaling, I'll be adding new things I try or do during 2020.  Let's take a closer look.

I used three different cut files.  I first used Silhouette Studio to roughly lay out my cut files to see how I was going to approach the page. I started with the brand new "This Year", added numbers from the "Banner Essentials" to create the year, and added "Polaroids" to see how I'd add my sections.  You can see I didn't follow it exactly, but it helps to see how to size the cut files before cutting and decide what papers I'll use for the cuts.

I decided to use the Simple Stories Oh Happy Day collection because of the great color!  After cutting all of the cut files, I layed them out on white cardstock and decided I needed some water color behind the 2020 for some mixed media interest.  I used Distress Inks, water colors, and Lindy's shimmer spritz for some shine.

Cutting "this year" in black cardstock really helps it pop!  I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen to help those polka dots in the year sparkle, and I outlined the numbers with a black pen.

Even though this isn't a "typical" layout, I added a recent photo of myself and added in some stickers, enamel dots, and ephemera for some additional interest.

I backed the negative space in the Polaroid cuts with black cardstock so they'd stand out.

I'm going to capture new restaurants, new books, new movies, and events I attend (like concerts, sports events, etc.) in 2020.  This helps me look forward to the new year!  :)

Here are the cut files used:

This Year

Banner Essentials

Polaroids

I'm so glad you joined me on this New Year's Day.  I hope you're inspired to create something to track your fun in 2020, too.  May your year be happy, healthy, and full of love.

Majken


Cute Friendship | Claudia van Rooijen December 31, 2019 07:00

Hello friends! Claudia here with you with the last layout of the year - I truly can't believe how fast this year has flown by!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created using the Rosette Background cut file and the beautiful Pick Me Up collection by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee from a few years ago.

As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use this beautiful ombre paper with the cut file - I really love this color!

Since the collection has a lot of fun colors and I wanted to bring most of them in, I decided to pull out some black and white photos to create a nice contrast. I thought these photos of my cats Joey and Mickey were adorable so how could I not scrap them? 

 

I've been really loving shaped paperclips these days - they are a great way to add interest to any project and I always love an extra touch of gold!

I added some layering behind one of the photos and for the other one I simply used a die cut frame and added some foam tape behind it to add some more dimension to my layout.

The 'Cute' letters are actually from an older Maggie Holmes collection but I figured they would still work quite well with the layout since I wanted to add a little bit of black to it to create more contrast.

Lastly I pulled out this colorful triangle paper from the collection and used it as a border for my layout.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you enjoyed seeing the layout. I wish you all a very happy and crafty new year! :-)

Wild & Free | Patricia Roebuck December 30, 2019 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Geometric Frames, Stained Glass Lace, Wild & Free

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and/or still enjoying holidays and getting ready for 2020!  I have been wanting to use these cut files I'll be using today in my Travelers Notebook for awhile and I found the perfect photo to use with them.  

I'm using Stained Glass Lace:

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Stained Glass Lace

Geometric Frames 2:

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Geometric Frames 2

and for my title the Wild & Free cut file:

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Wild & Free

I backed two of the images from the Stained Glass Lace with four different pattern paper backgrounds.  Using this cut file differently from intended, I kept the back part of it, the square die cut image behind it, and backed it with a solid piece of navy cardstock to create a bold contrast.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Wild & Free, Stained Glass Lace, Geometric Frames 2, Traveler's Notebook

And then for the center, I used more pattern paper for the background of the geometric images along the border of the Geometric Frame (TIP:  I used a multi-colored pattern paper.  Adhered once, and got different colors for each shape).  For the center I used another pattern paper, soft enough for my Wild & Free cut file title.  I used a solid piece of dark grey cardstock for the 'wild'.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Wild & Free, Stained Glass Lace, Geometric Frames 2, Traveler's Notebook

For the right side, I layered pattern paper under my photo, and embellishments under my photo, creating a cluster.

Added the perfect stamped sentiment to go with my photo at the top of the right page.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you are inspired to use these three cut files in your next project!  Happy New Year!

 


Something to Remember | Vicki Parker December 27, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today sharing my layout using the Fallen Snow cut file available in store here.

 

 

 

I have lots of bauble stickers and acetate pieces from a recent Hip Kit and I wanted to use them up, so I thought this would be the perfect excuse - lots of hanging things! I started by adding some drips of a blue Shimmerz paint down the page and painting the snowflakes lightly in the same colour.

 

 

I stuck the cut file to the top of the page and then using foam, I raised the snowflakes before sticking them to add some dimension.

 

 

I then pulled out the baubles and added them to the top or from the bottom of the paint drips to look like they were hanging from them.

 

 

I also used some acetate snowflakes to add to the theme. My photo was mounted on some blue cardstock and tucked into a snowflake. And that's it, the final layout - I hope it gives you some inspiration for using this cut file on a winter layout. Until next time...

 


Love it / Nastya Efimenko December 26, 2019 07:00

Hello craft friends!

Nastya Efimenko is here today and I want to share with you my new layout which I created using a cut file - Snowflake Background 2

 

I also added decorations

Happy Holidays!

 

 


Holiday tags | Anna Blades December 24, 2019 07:00

Hi Justnick friends!!

Anna here with you today! Are you ready for Santa's visit? Today I want to share with you this easy way to embellish your presents with this beautiful "Holiday Tags" cut file in just a few minutes.

You can cut a bunch of tags in a cardstock with your cutting machine and tie them with a pretty ribbon.

I used red, white and green cardstock to match my wrapping paper (And also my Christmas tree ;P) I cut some tags with the details and others only the outline for backing.

I think they look very cute.  And just for the record, these are not fake presents!!

I wish you all a magic Christmas Eve and if you have been nice maybe tomorrow you will find presents like these under your Christmas tree!

Merry Christmas!


DECEMBER DOCUMENTING | Nathalie DeSousa December 23, 2019 00:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share a few pages of my December Documented album.   December is a super busy month for us (today's my daughter's bday and my son in 4 days from now), so i do a lot of work for my December ahead of time.  Here is where cut files come in handy, especially JustNick designs. Let me show you!

 

 

I had worked the FALALALA cut file into a foundation paper by cutting the tree out of glitter paper and also of a distress grayish/cream paper (SImple Stories).   I glued these together with  a bit of an offset and set them on a piece of transparency in my album (Maggie Holmes).

 

 

 

Once i  had my story ready, i just added a small embellishment to the center of the tree that catches some of the accent of the colors in the story side of the layout. Super simple and glittery page.

 

 

This is other example of how working ahead with cutfiles makes the page come together easily.   For this page, I had used the SNOWFLAKE 2 BACKGROUND   to create the mat for this page in my Life Crafted Album (Citrus Twist Kits).

 

 

 

I backed the circles with patterned papers that reminded me of snow (Crate Paper, FancyPants Designs) and had it ready  for my story.   Once i was ready to put down pictures. I cut a paper for the background of the circles and punched holes so i can add it to my album.

 

 

 

 

I used the HOLIDAY STAR cut file to cut the shape three times from white cardstock, then stacked it together and backed the image with vellum. I placed this in the center of my circle mat and added a puffy sticker for title (Crate Paper)

 

 

I love how these pages came together rather easily using cut files and my documenting was easy and quick to do once it was ready to be added.

 

Remember to check all the cut files at the Just Nick Studio Shop.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW 2020!!

 

XO

 


Snowflakes // Sarah Bargo December 21, 2019 15:30

Hey there paper peeps! Sarah here with a fun little junk journal to share with you using the gorgeous large Snowflakes cut file!

I saw these snowflakes and knew that I wanted to have them sticking out of a mini album immediately lol! They are so pretty!

The cover of the mini is actually a Sugar Paper gift bag I bought at Target, I love stars so much I couldn't wait to use this as a book! It looks super dreamy paired up with these gorgeous snowflakes :)

Tied everything together with some pretty yarn and then tied a tag on just to add some sparkle..

Aren't snowflake just the prettiest things ever?

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a very Merry Christmas!

 


Joy | Majken Pullin December 20, 2019 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you on this fun Friday.  How fun was the 12 Days of Giveaways?  If you didn't get the 12 holiday cut files for free on the day they were offered, you can still purchase them in the store to create your holiday projects.

I'm sure in the Christmas spirit, and today I'm sharing a layout I created with a cut file meant for a card - Holiday Cards 2.  Just goes to show that you don't have to use cut files only for what they were envisioned for!  Let's take a peek:

 

I've used the fun Pebbles Merry Little Christmas.  After sizing my "card" cut file larger to fit on an 8 1/2" x 11" background, I cut it out with my Cameo.  As I was trying to decide what paper to back the circle in, I realized I wanted to use all the papers from the 6" x 6" paper pad...ha!  So I cut many strips of several of the papers and decided to create a basketweave of them.  I used this fun multi-patterned background behind my cut file open area.  It does a great job showcasing the "joy" from the cut file!

I put my two photos in the bottom left of the cut file paper on the 8 1/2" x 11" dark green cardstock.  I outlined that with white distressed cardstock and sewed around the edge using gold thread. 

I used a bit of red ink and a water pen to give the distressed edges some color and dimension against the 12" x 12" white cardstock base.  Then I cut up the background paper with the different rectangles to lay them over gold floss.

I added some stickers and that super-cute hedghog that I fussycut.

Here's the cut file up close:

Holiday Cards 2

I hope you get some holiday inspiration from today's layout, and I hope you have a very merry All-The-Holidays spent with those you love.

Enjoy your weekend and Happy Holidays!

Santa | Kelly Barron December 17, 2019 07:00

Hello friends! It's Kelly and I have a fun layout to share today using the Christmas Tree  cut file. 

Every year I take my kids to see Santa and I have an album of layouts documenting their visit to Santa. It is one of my most cherished albums.

To create this layout I first backed the cut file with glitter and patterned paper. The smaller ornaments on the cut file cut separately, but I decided to leave them off and use my stash of enamel dots to decorate the tree. 

The final touches for the layout included a few stickers and twine wrapped around the photo. I did pop one of the ornaments up with foam squares for a bit of added dimension. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope this layout inspires you to create something like it did for me. Happy Holidays!

 

 

 


JOY | Monique Liedtke December 16, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here and I'm so happy to be here! I hope you enjoyed our 12 Days of Giveaways last week and that you managed to grab all 12 free cut files! I never tire of Christmas cut files and chose for today's blog post an oldie but a goodie: the Holly Ring

Here's what I created:

And this is the cut file I used: Holly Ring

Isn't this cut file fun? I used the Holly Jolly collection from My Mind's Eye and cut the Holly Ring from one of the patterned papers. I just love circle cut files and this one with all the berries I find really cute! Except for the photo I just added lots of die-cuts, stickers and chipboards and placed these on and around the ring:

I used one of the journaling cards to add some hand written journaling and added a chipboard title on top of the card:

After I added some machine stitching and paint drops the layout was finished. Love how this turned out. Hope you like it too! 

Thank you so much for visiting our blog and don't forget to check out the JustNick store for this cute Christmas cut file or one of the many other Christmas cut files!  


12 Days of Giveaways Day 12 | Claudia van Rooijen December 12, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hello scrappy friends! Claudia here and it's Day 12 of our 12 Days of Givaways. 

Today's freebie is the Christmas Tree cut file: 

Use the code TREE4FREE during checkout to get this cut file for free.
The code is only valid on December 12th, 2019 until midnight CST.

For my layout I'm using a photo taken during Christmas last year of me, my mom and my grandmother. I created this layout with the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection which is one of my favorite winter/Christmas collections as I adore the colors.

I spent quite a lot of time layering this cut file but I think the end result was well worth it. In some parts I layered some vellum on top of patterned paper which is not something I had done before but I really love the look of it.

If you back a lot of cut files I can definitely recommend having a gold glittered paper in your stash (or any other glitter paper if gold is not your thing) because it will look good on pretty much all cut files.

I had a lot of fun embellishing this layout and am happy with the way it turned out.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout!

12 Days of Giveaways Day 11 | Holiday Circles | Patricia Roebuck December 11, 2019 07:00 2 Comments

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, Holiday Circles, Travelers Notebook

Hello Everyone!!  And welcome to Day 11 of 12 Days of Giveaways here on the JustNick blog!  Today I'm using the Holiday Circles in my Traveler's Notebook.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, Holiday Circles

Circles are probably my favorite shape for creating pages.   I used these circles as designed without making them smaller.  I used two separate pieces of cardstock that I adhered once I had the circles adhered and trimmed the 'Jolly' circle to make it appear to be flowing across the two pages.

I backed the top part of three of the four circles with pattern paper, and the bottom part with white cardstock.  Love how these circles are designed with two places to fill in with a photo, pattern paper or embellishments, like I did on the bottom of each one!

I printed my photo to cluster within my three circles and trimmed leaving a border.  You can see I also used the Holly 3 cut file.  I filled the berries with more enamel dots!

Besides these adding an amazing design to your next project, they each have a title!  I used the bottom strip of pattern paper to double up to make 'Jolly' show up more against the soft pattern paper, but left the others as is.  I like the softness of the one on the far right compared to the two on the left, but I can still see the title!

I added my typed journaling on a die cut along with stamping at the top.

Then finished this with gold puffy branch stickers.  These stickers help create repetition to the circle design, and the Holly 3 leaves backed with pattern paper in a different color all help to bring focus to the photo.

Today's freebie is the On The List cut file which is so much fun. Read below to find out how to grab it free, only today!

 

 

This is the layout I made using the cut file....

 

 

Fun right? I arranged the cutfile over the whole page and cut it from a patterned paper. Then I backed the letters and 'Naughty' with some Christmas coloured patterned papers, adding back in the centre of letters where needed.

 

 

It's difficult to see in the photos, but I used a star stencil to add some small stars with white texture paste around the page.

 

 

I then used some dark cardstock and Christmas embellishments to frame my photos of me being silly! 

 

 

And that's how it came together! I love this cutfile and if you want to know how to get it for free, read on....

12 Days of Giveaways, Day 8 | Anna Blades December 8, 2019 07:00 2 Comments

Hi crafty friends! Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Giveaways, a Justnick Studio tradition. You can get a free cut file everyday during 12 days. Today's freebie is the We Wish You a Merry Christmas cut file. So elegant, don't you think? Read below to find out how to grab it free, only today!

That's the layout I created with this cut file:

Letters are very thin and since I cut it on white cardstock I needed a dark background to made it stand out, so I used this dark blue cardstock which matches with the papers and embellishments.

I made the inner circle a little bit smaller and cut it in another paper and raised it up with foam. I glued this "pom pom ribbon" around it. I think it gives a cozy look to the page.

I used the "Holiday Vibes" collection from Pinkfresh Studio.

Here's how you can get your free cut file:

Pointsettia 2 Free Cut File | Mari Clarke December 6, 2019 07:00 2 Comments

The 12 Days of Giveaways continues and today the beautiful Pointsettia 2 is all yours!!  I have created a page for my December album with the file to inspire you today!
There is so much detail to this file that it really makes a beautiful statement on any project.  I cut the file from American Crafts white Precision card stock.  I cut the file large enough to be the focal point on a 8x6 album page.
I cut a piece of vellum at 8x6 and added it to a piece of patterned paper the same size.  I punched the holes in the side and added a line of white sewing to the left side of the page.  I adhered my cut file to the page as well as some chipboard, washi and some stickers to finish the project.
I love the impact this file has.  This will be a lovely addition to my December album this year!

12 Days of Giveaways, Day 4 | Nathalie DeSousa December 5, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there,
Nathalie with you today bringing Day 4 of the 12 Days of Giveaways!  I am so excited to be part of this JustNick Studio tradition - I hope you all have been checking the blog to collect your free daily cut file download-.  Today's freebie is the ORNAMENT 3 cut file, and you are going to love how fun and versatile it is!

 

How fun are those ornaments!  I started this page with a bit of mixed media.  I used Vicki Boutin art crayons to bring some of the green of the Christmas tree to the page.

 

My idea of creating a cascade of ornaments came from the fun selfie.  For this, i cut the ornaments twice from white cardstock and stacked them together to create dimension on each ornament.
To bring the festive feel of the season, i chose papers from the Pink Paislee Together for Christmas and Pebbles Inc. Merry Little Christmas collection to carefully back each of the ornaments, then attached them to the background using foam adhesive.
All that was left to do was embellish the picture with a few stickers and a shiny title.   Just love those ornaments and i think they will be perfect to document some of your December memories.  And you can download a copy of the Ornaments 3 cut file for free just today - Dec. 5th, 2019
Here is how you get your free copy of the cut file:

Hey paper peeps! Is it really December eeeekkkk so excited! I love Christmastime so much! I'm especially excited today because it's day 4 of our 12 Days Of Giveaways here at Just Nick Studio, and I get to share with you this fun page I created using the gorgeous Holly 3 Cutfile! I just looovve holly, and this one is just adorable! 

This page is going in my Remember December album for this year, I spent the day crafting last weekend so I just had to do a festive page about it! 

I wanted the leaves to have an artsy green ombre effect, so I took my Tim Holtz Pine Needles Oxide Ink pad and applied some directly to my craft mat, then sprayed it with water. Then I dipped my Holly leaves in it, and I got this cool watercolor effect with all these other green hues coming thru! Turned out pretty neat! 

If you haven't tried adding some paints to your cut files, you definitely should, it's so fun! 

Be sure to stop by Just Nick Studio today and grab your free Holly 3 Cut File, offer only valid for today!

12 Days of Giveaways Day 3 | Kelly Barron December 3, 2019 07:30

Hello friends! It's Kelly and today I am sharing a December Documented page that I created using this fun Holiday Tree cut file. 

This cut file is so fun and would look amazing as the focal point on a layout. I chose to use this as a filler page in my December Documented album and love the way that it turned out.

To start, I opened up the file in my Silhouette software, and created a rectangle in the size of my filler page (6.25 in x 8.25 in). I then opened up the file, and removed the Happy Holidays sentiment for sizing. Since I backed the cut file with a busier patterned paper and a transparency, I knew that the letters needed to be as large as possible for readability.

 I am still enjoying creating my own transparencies using my laminator. Refer to this post for details on how I have created some transparencies to use for my projects. On this transparency I used tinsel glitter by Recollections. While it doesn't quite look like the tinsel that was once commonly placed on Christmas trees, it gave me the nostalgic feel of decorations in the past. 

It's hard to see the glitter due to the glare of the transparency, but in person it is noticeable and a fun element behind the cut file.

Once I adhered the transparency to the cut file, I lightly adhered it to the patterned paper. Then, I machine stitched around the edge with white thread. For the finishing touches, I sprinkled clear sequins around the page and added a chipboard star to the top. 

Be sure and grab the Holiday Tree cut file at the Just Nick  shop for free today only.

Hello and welcome to the celebration!  Every year, JustNick Studio has a 12 days of giveaways just for you, and it's easy to grab some fun and free cut files.  I'm continuing with the celebration for Day 2 of this exciting giveaway.  Check out the super-cute Gingerbread House, and then read below to find out how to grab it for free, today only (but available for purchase if you miss the giveaway window).

Gingerbread House

Here is the project I created with this fun file! 

Gingerbread House Day

This December marks the last year one of my children will be participating in this tradition at our elementary school (cue the crying hard emoji!!), and so when I saw this cut file, I knew exactly what to do with it.  I chose a couple of photos from my daughter's experience and paired it with the fun Pebbles Merry Little Christmas collection.

Isn't the roof so much fun?!  I backed each area of the house with different patterned papers. 

I couldn't resist putting that little Santa sticker coming out of the chimney!

I used Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland Thickers for the title along the roof edge.

The candy canes and gum drops were perfect to back with different patterned papers.

How sweet is it that the peppermint candy paper matches the ones on the house?

Well, now it's your turn to grab this awesome Gingerbread House cut file!  Here is how:

12 Days of Giveaways - Day 1 | Monique Liedtke December 1, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!! It's Monique here to kick off our "12 Days of Giveaways"!!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and we have started the celebrations early! For the next 12 days JustNick Studio will be giving away a free cut file every day! Today the free cut file is this Geo Reindeer!

Doesn't he look awesome?! Here's what I created with it:

I started my page by adding some light blue water color paint where I wanted to place the cut reindeer. On top I used a text stamp from Prima Marketing which I stamped several times without re inking so I had both darker and lighter stamped images. Next came a few drops of color mist. The Geo Reindeer was cut from a sheet of Pebbles Inc. wood grain paper and I covered it with silver embellishment mousse from Nuvo. You can't see it very well but the silver is very shiny. 
On top of the cut reindeer I adhered some stickers so he doesn't look so huge. Of course his antlers needed a bit of Christmas decoration as well. 
For my page I used Carta Bella's "Santa's Workshop" collection which is from last year, but as I loved it so much I saved it. This is silly of course so I decided now was the time to use it.
The text chipboards are a favorite of mine too and are from Tim Holtz:
The photos are of my super cute English Cocker Spaniel puppy who was wearing her reindeer suit (which she doesn't like at all!):
This is my page for today! Hope you like it!!

 If you love this "Geo Reindeer" cut file too then be sure to hop over to the JustNick shop today to grab this free cut file!!

Home sweet Home / Nastya Efimenko November 30, 2019 07:00

Hello Everyone! Nastya here and my new layout about our new home ♥

 

I created it using the file Home Sweet Home

Of the three houses I chose a house with a heart and used different sizes.

Also I applied the title from this file.

See you soon!

 


Today is a Good Day to be Happy | Majken Pullin November 29, 2019 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  It's Majken today here with you on the JustNick Studio blog, and I have a scrapbook layout to share with you today where I've hand-stitched my cut file title. Here is my layout.

Today is a Good Day to be Happy

I have a tutorial on how to create a stitch file from a cut file with the Silhouette Cameo here.  Today's method was a little different in that I cut the inside of the "Happy" and the stitch holes on the outside edge to then stitch the outside. Here's what that looked like in Silhouette Studio.

Happy

In the above example, I released the compound path and removed the inside pieces so that only the word outline would cut.  My stitch holes were created by creating an offset of "Happy" and then proceeding to add the periods to the offset.  You will need to make sure your offset is large enough for the stitching to not tear through the edges.

After I cut "Happy" and the stitch holes, I stitched with embroidery thread and then backed the title with the fun patterned paper from Bella Blvd "Squeeze the Day" collection!

Happy

Happy

I also sprinkled some black ink and enamel hearts and stickers on the layout, and included a heart from Basic Hearts to pair with the smaller hearts from the collection.

Basic Hearts

My photo area needed a bit more of a boost, so I cut out a Scalloped Flowers to use in the mat area.

Scalloped Flowers

Here are the cut files I used for today's project:

I'm so glad you stopped by today!  Have a happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Remember | Vicki Parker November 28, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today sharing my latest layout using one of the brand new November cut files.

 

 

I loved the Remember cut file straight away - you can find it in the store here.

 

 

I started by backing each letter with a paper from Pretty Little Studio that has a gradient starting with pale pink and ending with an orangey tone - it worked really well and I used the reverse of the paper to add a strip down one side of the cut file. This added some contrast on the 'Flamingo' cardstock.

 

 

I added some fussy cut leaves, some floral die cuts and a chipboard pumpkin along with a cute rainbow to embellish.

 

 

I finished with some splatters of gold after adding my photo backed with some vellum.

 

 

I hope my layout gives you some inspiration for using this fabulous cut file which I think would also be great to scrap veterans. Until next time...

 


Snowman | Kelly Barron November 27, 2019 07:00

Hello friends! It's Kelly and today I am sharing a page that I made for my December documented album. I created my own transparency layer and then layered the snowman on top.

I started out with this adorable Snowman cut file. 

I backed the hat with a paper that has a velvet-like texture, and added red stickles to the berries. To make his mouth, I used embroidery floss and created some french knots for added texture. Black enamel dots made the perfect eyes and buttons to finish him off. 

I created the transparency using my laminator and some sequins. I cut the laminating sheet to size, sprinkled some sequins on the inside, and then ran it through the laminator. I also tried this with glitter and embossing powder with great results as well. 

To cover up the stitching, I cut the outline of the snowman and adhered it to the back of the transparency. I did use red line tape because I wanted to make sure that it would not come off the transparency.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, and I hope that this inspires you to use some of the festive Just Nick cut files in your December projects.


How Sweet This Is | Claudia van Rooijen November 26, 2019 07:00

Hello everyone! Claudia here with another layout I created using the Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely collection.

For this layout I'm using the beautiful Remember Floral cut file.

I cut it from white cardstock and then mounted it with a watercolor background paper from the collection.

I knew I wanted it to mostly feature pink and yellow.

I placed a few of the phrase stickers that I felt applied to my photo (a selfie of me and Amy during one of our walks in August).

It's quite a simple layout but I really wanted the cut file to be the main focus of the layout so I felt that it didn't need a ton of embellishing and only added a few small things here and there.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout!

Xo Claudia


It's a Wonderful Life / Sarah Bargo November 25, 2019 07:00

Hey paper peeps! I have a fun new layout to share with you today using the Snowflakes Background cut file! It is one of my favorite cut files, I just love it! 

I struggle sometimes with large layouts, that's why I love using large cut files, they make 12x12 layouts so simple to make!

Just add a few stickers and embellishments and you're all set! These snowflakes have so many darling little details! 

This is definitely one I'll keep using time and time again :) What is your favorite type of cut file to use?

Thank you so much for stopping by!


GRATEFUL // Jasmin Paar November 23, 2019 07:00

Hello everyone. Jasmin here with a Layout for you today. I designed my layout simple  to make the file more effective.

It's the month of gratitude so i used the file GRATEFUL.



I made a wreath with the leaves and the letters. To highlight it I used pink Cardstock.

Finally, I decorate my layout with bits and pieces and a text suitable for gratitude.

I hope you like it!

Have a wonderful Day.


THANKFUL | Nathalie DeSousa November 22, 2019 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with our American friends.  This time of the year always bring lots of reflection, love and gratitude, and what better way to documenting than to create a scrapbook layout using some of the JustNick Studio cut files.

 

 

 

Our biggest blessing are our kids.  So i wanted to make them the highlight of this page.  I started by creating the background with a bit of handstitching and using the Compressed Chevron background as a stitching guide.

 

 

 

I chose embroidery floss that will match the colors in the Maggie Holmes Heritage collection for the background, and watched a few Christmas movies while i finished detailing the lines.

 

 

 

I set the picture in place and added embellishments to create the clusters on the page.   I then used the Card Sentiments 3 cut file to  cut the "thankful"  from a piece of Vicki Boutin Foundation paper and then added a bit of shine by coloring it with Gold Glaze.

 

 

The title was attached with a bit of foam adhesive to the page, and then all was left to do was add some journal lines and embellishments to complete this page.

 

 

I hope that this has inspired you to document your gratitude using some of Just NIck Studio beautiful cut files.

 

Til Next time,

 


So Very Grateful | Mari Clarke November 21, 2019 07:00

Hi friends!  Welcome to the JustNick Cut File Shop blog!  I have a project to share today using the Autumn Wreath cut file!
I love this cut file so much!  The theme on the blog this week is "Thankful" and I wanted to scrap this photo I took of my kids on Thanksgiving day this year.
I cut the file twice from some Bazzill Marshmallow paper.  One file is slightly larger than the other.  I created some mixed media on my white card stock with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals.  Then I adhered the first file onto the paper around the mixed media.
Once I had the first cut file adhered, I backed my second cut file with the American Crafts Truly Grateful collection 6x6 papers.  I matched the papers to the mixed media areas; where the mixed media was mostly pink, I backed the file with pink, etc.  I adhered the backed cut file over the first file using foam adhesive.
Once I had the second file layered over the first, I fussy cut leaves from the patterned paper and added those to corresponding colored leaves with foam adhesive.  I added my photo to the left of the area inside the wreath and then embellished to the right of the photo with the Truly Grateful collection.
I love all of the beautiful cut file options over in the JustNick Shop!  Be sure you check out the Autumn Wreath cut file and all of the other files Nicole has in the shop!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Gratitude Bullet Journaling | Part 2 | Patricia (UPDATED) November 20, 2019 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5, Photo Tabs 1, Photo Tabs 2, Grateful Heart, Leaf Grid Background, Gratitude Bullet Journaling

Hi Everyone!!  I'm excited to be back to show you my progress on my Gratitude Bullet Journaling!  You can see my first post here.  Below, I have an update to show you the rest of the journaling I added to that first post.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5, Photo Tabs 1, Photo Tabs 2, Grateful Heart, Leaf Grid Background, Gratitude Bullet Journaling

This format of journaling has definitely been the easiest and most enjoyable way to jot down thoughts of thankfulness with a perfect mix of being creative.  I used most of the same cut files as I did for that first post, including the Leaf Grid Background.

JustNick Studio, Leaf Grid Background, Cut Files

Leaves 5

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5

And Photo Tabs 1

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Photo Tabs 1

I used the Leaf Grid Background using two shades of ink to blend a background on the left, adhered the Photo Tabs 1 and Leaves 5, then added stamping and journaling.  I then went back over the inside of the Leaf Grid Background with a Micron 005 black pen.  

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5, Photo Tabs 1, Leaf Grid Background

Love the added layer and dimension that creates, using the smaller point is just right too.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5, Photo Tabs 1, Leaf Grid Background

I stayed with the same color palette I used on my first page, so this keeps this simple but creative enough for me to accomplish for each week.  Compared to the first week, all I changed was using softer colors.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Leaves 5, Photo Tabs 1, Leaf Grid Background

For the right side, the third week, I pulled in two new cut files.  The Photo Tabs 2.

JustNick Studio, Photo Tabs 2

And the new Grateful Heart, isn't it gorgeous!  

JustNick Studio, Grateful Heart, Cut Files

I cut the Photo Tabs 2 in the same pattern paper, also repeating the soft color palette, and then stitched them in black thread on sewing machine. The black is repeating the black from my cut files.  I love the contrast of the black with the soft colors as well.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Grateful Heart, Photo Tabs 2, Leaves 5, Gratitude Journal

I know I will definitely continue adding a leaf from the Leaves 5 cut files.  I have that one left for the last week of November.  I added my week info at the bottom near the heart.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Grateful Heart, Photo Tabs 2, Leaves 5, Gratitude Journal

Before I added the cut file to this page, I used the negative piece from this heart to sponge some ink using a stencil, and also added some stamping within the negative heart piece, then applied my Grateful Heart cut file.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Grateful Heart, Photo Tabs 2, Leaves 5, Gratitude Journal

Love the look of the Photo tabs 2 adhered to the left side overlapping (would be great on a layout like this) I added the stamped Nov to the top tab.  And then along the top is where I stenciled my journaling lines and bullet acorns.  Will have to update this post with the finished four weeks.  Really so glad I gave this a try, so doable!  Hope you find this inspiring and doable for your bullet journaling or gratitude projects!

(UPDATE)

Better late than never...I'm updating this post to show the last week of November!  I changed the colors just a bit to help tie into my 'this year' page across from it.  You can see that here.

Thankful for you | Anna Blades November 19, 2019 11:07

Hi friends!

Anna here with you today sharing a new layout on this "thankful" week!

Here in Catalonia we don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day, but I think it's important to remember the good things in your life and give thanks for them. And I'm very grateful for my lovely family!

For this layout I used the "Thankful 2" cut file for my main title, which I backed with patterned paper. Then, I raised it up with little foam squares.

To complete it, I stamped the words "for you" with distress oxide ink (Victorian Velvet) .

I also used the "Leaf Cluster 2" to embellish my page, because I think that the leaves look a lot like the ones of the die cuts that I used in this layout. They're are backed with patterned paper too.

All items used in this page are from Heidi Swapp's "Honey and Spice" collection. It's so beautiful and these big flowers are really gorgeous.

I hope you like it!

Thank you so much for stopping by and remember to check out the new cut files every week!

See you soon!!
