Hi friends, welcome to the JustNick Digital Cut File Shop Blog!  Today I have an 8.5 x 11 scrapbooking layout idea to share with you using two of the designs from the shop!

I cut the Basic Butterflies and Basic Butterflies Outline from some heavy white cardstock and adhered the pieces together using glue dots.  I printed my black and white photo of my sweet little great niece at 6.25 x 11.  

I added some patterned paper from the Bloom Street collection in a 3x11 strip on the left side.  I used a scallop punch to create a border strip in Tutu Pink Bazzill cardstock along the photo's edge.

I added my title pieces vertically on the side using a puffy phrase sticker from Bloom Street and some white puffy alphas from Pink Fresh Studio.  My sweet little crisp butterflies adorn the top area of the layout!  I added a few dots of gold Stickles on the butterflies to complete the look.  

 I just love these beautiful designs.  Be sure to check all of the designs out in the JustNick Shop!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

She Is Sunshine | Majken Pullin August 6, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone...Majken here with y'all today sharing a layout of my daughter back when she was almost 3 and she chose her own outfit and dressed herself.  It really does feel like it was just yesterday.  That's why I love scrapbooking - it can take you back to those precious moments you don't want to forget!  For my layout, I chose the Delicate Butterflies cut file because her shirt has a butterfly on it.  (You can see how I used Delicate Butterflies on a vintage layout of my grandmother a couple of years ago here.)

Here's the layout of my daughter:

I trimmed textured white cardstock to 11" x 11", distressed the edges, and spritzed a little bit of watercolor randomly over the page.  While it dried, I cut the Delicate Butterflies cut file in white textured cardstock on my Cameo 4.  While it was cutting, I sewed the 11" x 11" white cardstock on top of the blue/purple patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Bloom Street collection by Paige Evans.  It matches my girl's outfit beautifully!

After I adhered the butterflies lightly, I sewed along the middle of the butteflies' bodies.  I had to use the sweet ephemera, including the butterflies to create even more texture.

I love that the "Sunshine" puffy sticker matches her outfit colors!  So I had to use that as my title, along with some tiny alpha stickers to create the "she is".

I

I lightly layered some yellow watercolor along the distressed edges of my 11" x 11" white cardstock which you can see at the bottom of this next photo.  I love doing this because it add dimension to the texture created by distressing.

And it wouldn't have been complete without enamel dots and journaling strips!

Here is the Delicate Butterflies cut file:

I'm so glad you visited the blog today, and I hope you find a fun way to use this cut file (or any JustNick Studio cut files!) in one of your projects.  When you do, share them with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio. 

Happy creating!

Layout page| Babi August 5, 2020 07:00

Hi Everyone

It's Babi here and today I would like to share with you another layout using JustNick Files. 

 

I created a simple background using Radioactive file with different paper patterns.

To add more volume to the paper, I added foam tape in some of the pattern paper, so the paper has different levels.

 

 

 

Then, I added some cute die cuts to embellish it. 

 

I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by

Summer Ride | Patricia Roebuck August 4, 2020 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Summer, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!!  I love all things related to summer, but one favorite is bike riding.  I used the new Summer cut file with the retro look to document one of the photos on the longer bike rides I take with my husband.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Summer,

I cut the file from textured peach colored cardstock, resizing it to fit on one side of my notebook.  The cut file is great as is, but to add even more texture to it, I machine stitched in white across the bottom, and then added the rest of my title to it.  It is a perfect way to add on to your title, or get more creative with adding colors to the cut file.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Summer, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Before adhering my title, I typed and stamped on the bottom for my journaling, and then adhered everything into place.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Summer, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

I wanted the right side to focus on a photo spot my husband and I stopped at along our route.  I loved the bridge and road, but also the '20' on the post.  I used that for the year, then added embellishments to my large photo to finish.

Memories | Cristina Sales August 3, 2020 13:46

Hi Justnick Studio friends, Cristina here with you for a new project I made for the monthly inspiration. I chose a floral cut file I totally love!!!! I decided to use only part of it and cut it in a very large size.

I stitched it to the patterned paper and I started to embellish my pic.

Both the patterned paper and some embellishments are by the My mind's eye Gingham gardens collection. 

Chipboards are from the Simple Stories I am collection and the foam title is by Pink Paislee.

The pink paper used to cut out the file is by Jane Hadfield by Pebbles.

I really love to use cut file by Justnick Studio as part of the decoration in my project. I think they are so versatile and pretty cute to use in so many different ways. 

So thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you can get any kind of inspiration by my page, see you to the next post.

Hey everyone. Jasmin here with a b(p)eachy Layout for you today. Here i scrapped my Instax Photo from a Beach in Croatia. 

 

I used the SUN and the SEASTAR from this cutfile for my Layout. 

On the top  I picked a patterned Paper to help my file stand out from the white Cardstock.

The second Cut file is SUMMER WORDS and i choose the word beach. 

I fussy cut a beachy patterned Paper and decorated it with bits and pieces. Finally I used a few Nuvo Drops.

I hope you like it.

Sweet Happy Life | Sophie Delorme July 30, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

Sophie here with you today sharing a layout featuring an amazing background cut file from the Just Nick Store called "Mandala Background".

 

 

 

I used a beautiful Pinkfresh Studio collection for my page called "My Favorite Story".

 

I cut the Mandala Background Cut file on white textured cardstock and removed the upper and left side of it to have a little bit of white space for my title. I added white gesso on my patterned paper under the Mandalas to soften the color underneath them, and added plenty of watercolor splatters on my background paper with a brush. I machine stitched around the cut file with white thread and added adhesive foam on the back of it before adhering it to the background. I love all the dimension it creates !

 

 

Finally, I created a few clusters of flowers and embellishments around my photo and on the right upper side of the page, wrote down a little bit of journaling and added the date.

 

Here are a few close-ups...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I always find that background cut files are a simple and easy way to get you started in creating a page ! Only a few embellishments are needed and you always get amazing results ! Keep in mind that you can always modify, cut, shrink, etc. the cut files to fit your needs !
I truly hope you got inspired by ma page today, thank you so much for passing by.
Sophie xx

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


You are my happy | Anna Blades July 29, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to the JustNick Studio blog. This is Anna and for today's project, I was in the mood to do some mixed media background.

I love big title cut files, so I used the "You are my happy" cut file, which is fantastic because you have three different styles with the same phrase purchasing just one cut file.  

First, I used my watercolor markers from Vicki Boutin to create a watercolor background with three colors: pink, yellow, and mint. Then, I used a stencil by Paige Evans and white texture paste to give more texture and interest.  I cut one of the titles from the "You are my happy" cut file from white cardstock and outlined the capital letters with a black marker to make them stand out.

I cut just the word "happy" from pattern paper because I wanted it to be more visible. This way it matches the rest of the page too. I also covered the heart of the cut file with a heart that I fussy cut from one of the papers from the collection that I used.

To embellish my page I used the "Floral swag  5" cut file. I cut it from white cardstock and placed it in the upper right corner. I was thinking to color it with watercolors, but finally, I decided to leave it white. I ripped four stripes of pattern paper and glued them at the top and bottom of the page. I love this floral paper.

For this layout, I used an old collection from Simple Stories: "Posh". It's one of my "old faves", but now I only have a few bits left. Look at that little bird, isn't it the cutest?

And that's it! I hope you like this layout and I hope it gives you some inspiration. Don't forget to check out the new cut files in the store every week!

Have a crafty week! See you soon!


Sunburst Stencil | Mari Clarke July 28, 2020 07:00

Welcome to the JustNick blog!  It's Mari Clarke here and today I have a 12x12 scrapbook layout using the Sunburst Stencil cut file from the JustNick Shop!

I cut the file at 12x12 and then trimmed out about half of it to create the detail for the top portion of the layout.  I backed the cut file with 6x6 papers from the PinkFresh Studio Let's Stay Home collection.

I simply glued the cut file to the patterned paper and then trimmed the excess paper off near the edge of the cut file.  This creates a beautiful detail piece for the top half of the layout.  I added some scallop 12x12 patterned paper below the cut file as well.

The scallop paper imitates the shape of the cut file and creates a place for the photos and embellishments to be layered.  I added the title and journaling to the bottom and right side of the layout!

Be sure to check out the fun summer themed cut files in the shop as well as all of the other awesome designs Nicole has created!

Have a wonderful day!

xx Mari


You Are Cute - Creating a Fun Title | Majken Pullin July 27, 2020 07:00

Hello hello friends!  Majken here with you today...I hope you are doing well in your part of the world.  What better way to beat the pandemic blues than with fun cut files and colorful paper?  Today I'm sharing a layout where I created a fun title!

The first thing I did was insert the Spring Outline Alpha letters for "cute" in the center of four of the hexagon Geometric Frames, then cut them out in white textured cardstock.  I backed each letter with a different color patterned paper, and then I backed each hexagon geometric frame with pink patterned paper and vellum and some stickers.

Behind each hexagon letter, I also put some white thread on top of distressed paper of a different color that I sewed in place.

How sweet do these butterflies pair with the spring-y letters?? You can tell I love these letters!  I also balanced my photo with those butterflies and journaling strips.

I hope you are inspired to create your own titles, too!  And if you are, please share your projects with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio.  We can't wait to see them!

Here are the two cut files I used on my project today.

Thanks so much for joining us today on the blog!  Happy crafting.  :)

Documented my happy place layout | Cristina Sales July 23, 2020 07:00

Hi beautiful Justnick community, Cristina here with you today to share a new project made with a very lovely cut file, TN Sun day fun day.

During the lockdown days just passed I decided to spend my time to organize my craft room to have much more space to use in a better way. So I get off all the old supplies I don't used anymore and during this makeover operation I found so many beautiful products I totally forgot to have!!! 

This patterned paper is one of those ones.

When I found this beautiful patterned paper that was part of an old Felicity Jane collection I thought that would be the better choice to use underneath the cut file chose.

 The sheet design didn't need anything more so I only added some tiny embellishemnts and a floral thouch on it.

I chose some enamel dots and resin buttons, a paper rosette by Crate paper and some floral elements all around my pic. 

My title is made with a die-cut and a puffy sentiment. I have some resin decorations my lovely friend Alessia made for me and I thought that was perfect to create attention on my pic. 

Labels and tags and my composition was totally done. I hope you like it and you can get any kind of insipiration by it.

Thanks a lot for joining me today and see you to the next post.

Floral Layout|Babi July 22, 2020 07:00

Hi Everyone,

It's Babi here and I would like to share with you today another project using JustNick cut files.

I used Blossom Background file for the centerpiece of my page. I started by cutting the file in white paper, then colored with different shades of brown Distress ink pad to create the ombré effect.

Next, I added some extra details to the cut file by stitching the middle of the flowers.

Finishing the layout with die cuts, flowers and white gesso.

 

I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by.

Soaking up the Sun // Joanna Bandelin July 21, 2020 06:00

Hi friends! Joanna Bandelin here sharing a fun summer page. I used the Soak Up The Sun cut file from JustNick.
I love the fun Oh Summertime collection by Pebbles and it was so perfect for this cut file. I wanted a colorful background, so I choose this pretty watercolor style background from Heidi Swapp.
I added a cluster of stickers to the bottom right of my page and also around my photo. I was able to keep this page pretty simple because the cut file does all the hard work. 
Hope you're having a fun summer! Thanks for stopping by.

Make Waves | Patricia July 20, 2020 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

Hi Everyone!  I'm back with the second half of the TN Make Waves cut file in my Traveler's Notebook today!  You can see the first post here of how I used the right side of this cut file.  Today, I'm using the left side of the cut file with the 'Make Waves' as the title.

JustNick Studio

Similar to the first TN spread, I cut the left side using pattern paper.  My pattern paper is bolder, but with only black and white, I can easily back those letters with a lighter pattern paper to help them stand out.  And to help them stand out more, I loved the look of the backside of this black and white pattern (the pink).  So I flipped my cut out letters from the cut file, foam adhered, and offset them a bit to create a shadow look on just a few of them.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

I added the puffy butterfly sticker in the black and white to create a break in the pattern.  I didn't want to take away from the pattern paper, and I wanted the large photo and it's details to stand out on the right, so I typed my journaling with the typewriter on a separate cardstock, added black machine stitching, and then trimmed and adhered.  Doing this gives a little bit more visual of the background.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

For my large photo on the right, I just added puffy heart stickers, and die cuts to finish...cascading down along the waves on the shore.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

To add a little more dimension to this page, I foam adhered a couple of the die cuts.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

Very easy TN spread to put together.  Two uses from the same cut file, and also using the cut out letters within my design.  Happy creating!!


BEACH BABE | Nathalie DeSousa July 17, 2020 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today to continue with the Summer Fun theme of the week.  We are slowly returning to a new-normal life here in Toronto, but we are still not allowed to travel outside of Canada for recreational purposes.  So, we are still dreaming of past summer adventures, and hoping for the ones to come.  This prompt me to pull a picture of my niece for this page.

 

 

There are so many new cut files in the JustNick shop that it was easy to mix-n-match with older ones in a page.

 

 

 

I wanted to create a texture background that will tell the story of the picture.  So, i copied the new "BEACH BABE" cut file a few times, then angle the design, welded the images together, and cut it from white cardstock.

 

 

I used the same cut file to cut the inside letters of the image from patterned papers ( Prima's Surfboard collection).   To assemble the background, i first glued the white cutout onto the background, then used foam adhesive to attach all the patterned paper letters to the cut out.  I used double foam adhesive for the ones next to the pictures, so that they serve as the title of the page.

 

 

 

 

The background created large impact on the page, so i kept the embellishments to a minimum, and opted to use the BOHO FLORALS Cut file to create a few floral die cuts from shimmer linen paper.   A few lines of journal and enamel dots complete the page.

 

 

Remember to stop by the JustNick shop to check all the cutfiles that i used for this page.  I think you will find lots of new designs and inspiration there.

SUN // JASMIN PAAR July 16, 2020 07:00 2 Comments

Hi friends, Jasmin here with you today to share a traveler's notebook spread that I created using the TN SUN DAY FUN DAY cut file. 

 

 

First, I adapted the cut file to fit in to my Webster´s Pages Pocket Midori TN. 

 

 

I packed the file with patterned paper and sticked it on the right side. 

 

 

 

On the left i decorated my picture with bits and pieces and I used only the word SUN from the file.

 

 

I hope you like it!

Have a nice Day!

 


SUMMER GIRL ! | Sophie Delorme July 14, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends ! 

 

It's Sophie here and I am sharing a very summery layout with you today !

 

 

I used the Mermaid Scale Background 1 cut file, soon available in the shop if not yet ! It looks like this scale background:

 

 

I erased about half of it before cutting it with my silhouette. I cut out the borders as well to get only the scalloped fringes. I sticked the cut file down on white cardstock and carefully stitched on it with white thread.

 

 

I kept the inside parts and painted them with watercolor in a rainbow of colors to match my embellishments, that are from a beautiful Simple Stories collection called "Hello Summer". I curled them up and adhere only the upper part of them on my layout. I love all the dimensions and interest it brings to the page.

 

 

The "Girl" in my title comes from the beautiful cut file "Hey you", that I cut on green cardstock with an offset cut on white cardstock. I also applied some Glossy Accent on it to make it shine a little bit.

 

 

Finally, I used plenty of flowers, other summer embellishments and enamel dots in clusters on my page, I wrote down my journaling on thiny strips of white paper and added the date.

 

Here are a few close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today and got some ideas on how to use these gorgeous cut files !

 

Thank you for stopping by, and I wish you a great crafty day !

 

Sophie xx

 

 

 

 


Fun in the sun July 13, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

It's Alena here today with my new layout for JustNick.


I created my layout using the 'Sunburst Background 3 ' cut file.


I usually use a white cardstock for cutting, but for this file I just had to take a bright sunny patterned paper.



In the photo, my youngest son is watering flowers. So I added flowers around the photos.

 

 

 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope that this inspires you to create! Be sure and stop by the Just Nick store and check out the new cut files.

This is the Good Stuff | Patricia July 10, 2020 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

Hello Friends!!  I am always a little envious of summer break for my daughter.  As adults, we miss those days!  Today's post is documenting about swimming as our favorite way to enjoy Summer, but it is also to share how you can get two Traveler's Notebook spreads from the new TN Make Waves cut file.  Since we adults don't have Summer Breaks, making the most of our time in the craft room is a win/win for us!

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

Next week I will share the other half of this cut file in my notebook. For today, I'm using the right side.  How cool is that pattern.  I chose to cut this file out from a tone on tone pattern paper, and then backed it with a diagonally black and white pattern paper.  Just enough contrast, but not too much.  I make the cut file a tad bit bigger but not too much, and that way it gives me room to create a layered look under it before adhering to my notebook.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

In planning this spread, I wanted to add a good bit of journaling about our Summertime favorite activity.  So I printed my photos small about 2x2.75, trimming them with just about a 1/4" inch of the white border.  I like the white border on photos to create some breathing room for the design.  Then I clustered die cuts and puffy stickers around the photos.  If you are very linear in your scrapbooking, clustering photos like this and tilting them is a good start in creating that carefree layered look.  The die cuts help to ground the photos.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

I love seeing all that beautiful cut file above it and peeking underneath.  For my journaling, I decided to highlight it with a die cut frame.  I traced the inside opening of the frame on a separate piece of cardstock, then sent this through my typewriter to type my journaling, trimmed, stapled, and then adhered.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

All I did to finish this page was add more of the same flower die cuts, and blue die cut with the saying and color to balance that blue from the left side to add more framing of the journaling.  I also added the year with same stamp that I used to stamp June on the left side die cut.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, Make Waves

I will be back later this month using the second half of this same cut file.  I hope this shows you how simple and quick your creative time can be during the busy Summer months!


My favorite flowers | Cristina Sales July 9, 2020 00:00

Hi beautiful Justnick community, Cristina here with a new page made for you.

I totally fell in love for the background floral 2 cut file so I cut out a patterned paper from the willow lane collection by Crate paper and I used another one from the same collection to use as background. I love so much those light colors.

Now I started to make my composition using many kind of embellishments like chipboards from on old kit by Citrus Twist Kits, ephemera die-cuts from the Flourish collection by Crate Paper. Flowers die-cuts from Splendor collection by My Mind's Eye and a wood button by Pebbles.

I really love how my page turned out full of tiny elements and light colors. To add a golgen touch I spread some drops using the shiny gold by Heidi Swapp.

As I always do I used foam double tape to get a 3d effect.

That's all so thanks a lot for joining me today, I hope can get any kind of inspiration by my project to use this amazing cut file in every other creative way.





 

 

 

 

 

 


Beach Babe | Majken Pullin July 8, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends...Majken (@chocoscrapaholic) here today to extend our Summer Fun themed projects with you!  This one is especially fun because I decided to scrapbook from a past summer vacation.  Take a look.

The Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies collection is so fun, and I cannot get enough of the rainbow ombre background.  This time, I used it to back the new Beach Babe cut file (link coming soon!).  And then I decided to stitch around each letter to help give the cut file some texture.

Next, I spritzed some Close To My Heart ink (Pacifica and Outdoor Denim) with a bit of water to create drops on my background.

While that dried, I realized I wanted a bottom border to help anchor and balance the title.  I found the Wave Border 2 cut file and decided to cut two borders for dimension.  I used one border as-is, and then I created a second border by moving the border over and inserting one to weld with it.  My second one went off-screen, so I used the knife to trim the edges (you can use the eraser too if you don't have Silhouette Studio Design Edition).

I cut one out in a Faded Jeans Distressed Tim Holtz/Ranger/Coordinations textured cardstock and the other in Close To My Heart Twilight cardstock. I used 3D foam adhesive to pop up the Twilight cardstock.

I tucked my photo behind the top of the title, and then added some chipboard stickers, ephemera, stickers, and enamel dots.

This layout was so much fun to make!  Here are the two cut files used.

What cut file will you use for your next summer fun layout?

Thanks for joining us today!

Soak up the sun | Anna Blades July 7, 2020 07:00 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends!

Welcome back to the JustNick Studio blog. Anna here today with you with this summery layout featuring one of the newest cut files that you can find in the shop.

For today's page, I've chosen the Soak up the Sun cut file. I love this big title and its font, with this half sun on the side.

I cut it from white cardstock and I wanted to raise it, so I cut it from yellow foam too. That gives a very special look to the cut file making a yellow shadow. 

I only backed the letters because I wanted to see the cool pink-yellow gradient peeking through the sun rays. It seems like the sun was shining. Don't you think?

I placed my picture in the center of this half sun because it seemed to be the perfect spot for it.

I used the Summer lights collection from Crate Paper, one of the most beautiful beach themed collections ever. I love all the bright colors and all the pretty embellishments with iridescent foil.

Finally, I scattered some sequins all over the page, simulating drops of water.

And that's it! I love how it turned out and I hope it gives you some inspiration for your summer pages. And remember that you can find new cut files every week in the shop.

Take care and see you soon!!


TN Best Day Ever|Babi July 3, 2020 07:00

Hi Everyone,

I'm back today with a TN project using JustNick files.  

I've been trying to use more of my TN and journals and there are so many beautiful TN files at the shop. 

For this project I'm using TN - Best Day Ever and Hearts files.

 I started by resizing the Best Day Ever file to fit my TN. You can adjust to any size base on your need. Then, I backed the letters with 3 different papers to match the patter papers on the other page.

 

I also resized the hearts and cut on darker color papers. I just wanted a simple embellishment to decorate the photo.

Last, I added the tags behind the photo and white glue dots to add more texture to the page.


Best day ever! July 2, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

It's Alena here today with my new layout for JustNick.


This layout is about my son's birthday. I created my layout using the 'Best Day Ever' cut file.


I tried to use the same colors of patterned paper that are present in the photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope that this inspires you to create! Be sure and stop by the Just Nick store and check out the new cut files.

Alena


Wanderlust // Joanna Bandelin July 1, 2020 07:00

Hi friends, happy July! Joanna here sharing a 12x12 scrapbook page using the new Kaleidoscope Background cut file from JustNick.

I love using background cut files. They do all the hard work for you!

I cut out the kaleidoscope super big, so it filled the page. 

I used some black ink to make messy splatters on the white cardstock before gluing down the cut file. Then I added some clusters of travel themed tags and stickers around my photo.

The best part about this cut file is that it can really go with any theme. I could see using it for a Christmas or birthday page. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

 


Our Happy Place | Mari Clarke June 30, 2020 07:00

Welcome to the JustNick Blog!  It's Mari Clarke here with another project using the gorgeous designs from the JustNick Cut File Shop!  Today I am documenting our happy place, Maui, in my traveller's notebook.

There are so many perfect TN cut file designs in the shop and the This is Our Happy Place file is one of them.  I love how these designs make creating a layout so quick, easy and beautiful!

On the left side of my double page spread, I have the text and border for my layout.  I left the letters open, allowing the background paper to show through.  I love the crisp white on the distressed paper from the Prima Surf Board collection.

I embellished the corners of the left side with some fussy cut flowers, die cuts and a phrase sticker (the sticker is from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Coastal).  The cut file makes the biggest statement, so just some very simple embellishing goes a long ways to complement the design.

On the right side, I have cut three photos in circular shapes and placed them behind the open circles on the design.  I have backed the smaller circles with patterned paper from Prima.  Again, I have done some very simple embellishing with fussy cut florals, stickers and alphas.

This is such a fantastic way to create a TN spread!  Be sure to check out all of the TN designs in the JustNick Shop as well as any other designs that fit your style and projects: there are tons to choose from!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Pandemia & me layout | Cristina Sales June 29, 2020 07:00

Hi beautiful Justnick community, Cristina here today with you sharing a page I made for the Justnick studio design team. I chose this beautiful square file with lovely flowers inside it that perfectly fits with the idea I wanted to realize.

I started by a patterned paper in a light pink color and I add my title using big chipboards letters in different sized and fonts. I stitched the cut file all around the square line and I started to make my composition.

I chose decorations with golden details and tiny designs to add all around the title. I used not too much elements because I wanted my title would be the first thing on to focused the attention when I looked at my page.

This frame cut file is really amazing and I love so much out It turned out on the sheet.

I added some buttons and enamel dots and the compositions was completed.

 The meaning of the pic is about all the projects I had stopped from many time and during this lockdown I could completed all of them, yeahhhh!!!

BEST FURRIENDS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 26, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a cute layout highlighting the special bond between my little Sabrina and our dog, and I found the PERFECT JustNick Cut file for that ! 

I used the Cut file named "Paws to my Heart Background" that you can find in the store right here.

I've got so many photos of our dog... that as soon as I saw this in the shop, I new I had to use it !

So I started with a white cardstock background, adding just a few watercolor splatters on it in a rainbow order. I cut the cut file on white cardstock twice, to get a second layer of hearts. I backed the cut file with the beautiful paper no 06 from the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection. Then, I painted my second layer of hearts with watercolor to mimic the rainbow scheme of the patterned paper, and adhered it a little offset from the white hearts underneath. I love the result ! It's like having new embellishments, made out of the cut file..!

 I added adhesive foam behind the cut file and sticked it down to my page.

 I backed my photo with some tissue paper and a pink layer of another Bloom Street patterned paper and arranged it on the upper left side of the layout. 

 I embellished my page with other goodies from that same collection, and used a Flutter Phrase Thicker for my title.

 Isn't this cut file adorable ?? I am very happy with the end result ! I hope you like it too ! Check out the JustNick store to see more amazing cut files. Trust me, you  will get inspired on the spot !

Here are a ton of close-ups. Feel free to comment or ask any questions ! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 I wish you all a great crafty day !

Best Birthday Ever | Patricia June 25, 2020 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Best Day Ever

Hello Friends!  I'm excited to see the Traveler's Notebook cut files JustNick Studio has in the shop!  For today I'm sharing this project using the TN Best Day Ever cut file.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Best Day Ever

I did enlarge the cut file a little bit more to just be a tad smaller than my notebook.  Since I used pattern paper to cut this file out, I decided to use the 'best day ever' letters as part of my title and not use the negative cut file (page).  I used another white piece of cardstock, fussy cut pattern paper, and then foam adhered my letters to it.  Another way I changed the use of the cut file, was instead of using 'day,' I used 'birthday.'

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Best Day Ever

I used the background cut file for my right side.  I didn't want a big contrast and love how the letters from 'best ever' flow with the same pattern paper I used her on the right.  I also love the greens from the fussy cutting pattern paper, so I used a tight pattern paper paper with some of the same greens found in the fussy cut leaves to back the majority of this cut file.

And then for the larger ornate cut outs, I used a simple grid with similar colors to flow nicely with my left side.  I love how this came out giving me the beautiful texture, soft colors, and layers.

This cut file captured this special birthday perfectly!  Whether you had amazing vacation, celebration, time with others, the TN cut files are a great way to get started.  Hope this inspires you to tweak the cut titles, and don't be afraid to use the pattern paper as the cut out and then layer with more pattern papers!  


Shine | Anna Blades June 24, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today with this simple and beautiful layout. I love butterflies and this cut file is just amazing. It's called Butterfly Background 2 and it was perfect for the "Unforgettable" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I cut it from white cardstock because I wanted it to stand out from the background. I also raised it with foam dots to give more dimension. 

For the background, I used the watercolor markers from Vicki Boutin. With different shades of pink and aqua, I made brushstrokes with a wide brush, because I was looking for this effect at the end of the strokes.

I painted only the part of the page that was covered by the cut file, leaving the edges white. So this way, the background and the cut file merge.

I placed some butterflies die cuts "tone on tone", and my picture in the lower right corner a little crooked.

Some butterflies from the cut file are just the silhouette, so I used one of them to stack a little cluster on top of it.

I hope you like this layout! As you can see, you can create an amazing background in a few minutes just with some watercolors and a cut file!

Don't forget to check all the beautiful background cut files in the shop.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a great week!

{Wonderful Day} Print & Cut a Cut File with Minc Foil | Majken Pullin June 19, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share how I used the Silhouette Studio print and cut feature with the Minc foil to create a fun cut file title.  I used the new It's a Wonderful Day cut file -- which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!

It's so hard to photograph foil, so my main photo shows unbalanced light so you can better see that gorgeous pink foil I've paired with the Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice collection (with a little embellishment help from Pink Paislee Auburn Lane).  Here is the layout with balanced light:

The first thing I did was spattered some ink on a blank textured white cardstock and set it aside to dry.

Next I opened the It's a Wonderful Day cut file in Studio, choose Print & Cut, and print the cut file on smooth cardstock on my laser printer.  Some tips for you:

  1. Make sure your registration marks are turned on.  What you are printing should not fall into the hashmarked area.
  2. Use smooth cardstock so your foil will apply smoothly.
  3. Make your print slightly larger than the cut so that you don't have toner missing on the edges.
  4. Use a laser printer to print your file.  If you don't have one, you can use a copy place like Kinko's or use laser toner paper like the one from Heidi Swapp (if you use toner paper then there's no need to print...you just need to cut your file as you normally would).

Once it was printed, I sent the file to my Silhouette Cameo to cut.

Then it's ready to put through the Minc machine with the foil.  I used the #3 setting.  Rather than back the cut file letters individually, I tore strips of paper to lay behind the "wonderful".

I tucked my layered photo in the top left of the strips.

A few embellishments and journal strips finished the layout.

Here's the cut file.

I hope you try your take on print and cut with foiling - if you do, share it with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Thanks for dropping by today!  Have a great weekend.

Chasing Rainbows // Joanna Bandelin June 18, 2020 07:00

Hi friends, Joanna Bandelin here sharing a happy rainbow scrapbook page. I used the Chasing Rainbows cut file from JustNick.

 Rainbows are one of my favorite things  to add to my scrapbook pages. My kids love them and I love them, and they are so perfect for spring pages! This cut file went well with the photo of my family and I after hiking to the top of the mountain.

I cut out my rainbow nice and big so it filled up the page. Then backed it with vibrant colors. I did some messy ink splatters in blue and teal on the background before adhering the rainbow and photo.

 

To add some dimension to my page I fussy cut lots of butterflies from a Vicki Boutin pattern paper. Then added a few on pop dots.

I used my trusty cloud punch to make lots of clouds for the bottom of the rainbow. To finish off my page I added a bit of journaling about our adventure.

Thanks for stopping by!

 


Layout|Babi June 16, 2020 07:00

 

Hi Everyone.

I'm back today with another page featuring Heart Circle Background file.

I decided to use this adorable collection from my favorite Brazilian paper brand, Juju Scrapbook, to create a cute and fun layout.

 

 

After cutting the file on a white paper cardstock, I backed the background with patter papers. Then, added cute dogs and cats since my daughter loves animals.

Finishing the page with white gesso and adding Nuvo drops. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Everyday Documenting with Nathalie June 15, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a few ideas on how cut files can make your daily documenting: easy, fun and fast.   I have kept a journal since the age of 6, so daily documenting is part of my routine.  There are days with lots of words and others where all you need is a nice photo to tell the story, but there is always space to make even the ugh moments beautiful, and that is where Digital cut files come in handy.  Let me show you how i combine a few of the Just Nick Studio files with my stories in my Life Crafted album.

 

 

For my first page, i used a hybrid approach to create the layout.  I simply open a new page on my Silhouette software and copied the frames from the FRAME IT cut file to fill my page.  Next, i added a title using the THIS IS LIFE cut file to the center frame of the page.

 

 

 

I made sure to use the text function of the Silhouette to add my journal inside the largest frame, and then send it to print ( i used Premium paper for my Inkjet printer, so that the print is crisper and clearer).  All i had left to do was add a few stickers ( sticker albums are perfect for this!) and embellishments and it was done!

 

 

Here is another one of my entries, this time, i used the  new  TN THIS IS OUR HAPPY PLACE cut file to create the title page  for this page. I added a perforated line around the circles so that they i could use them as a stitching guide.

 

 

 

 

After hand stitching the circles, i glued it to the back of an existing page and used the color to bring all the layout together.  I pulled the WORD 2 cut file to cut the title three times from white cardstock.  I stacked the die cut words together and then glued it to the center circle.   

Since, i had the back of the pocket pages empty, i quickly created a new spread together in a flash.

 

 

This time, i used  the WORD cut file  to create the title page for the layout.   I crossed two of the words so that they formed the title across  the page, then added a frame around it, and welded them together.  I cut this from color patterned paper that matched the PL card i am using to tell the story.

 

 

 

I backed the title page with patterned paper, and then used a bit of foam adhesive to pop the negative pieces of the cut out, so that they look like popping off the page.  A few embellishments complete the page.

It is so easy to put simple pages together by using Just Nick Studio cut files in different ways.   Remember to check the shop to be inspired by the designs!

 

XO

 

 


It's a Wonderful Day | Mari Clarke June 12, 2020 07:00

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to the JustNick Blog today; it's Mari Clarke here with a 12x12 scrapbooking project!  I used the It's a Wonderful Day and Build a Flower 1 cut files to create my layout.

I started by adding some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock using the packaging/splattering technique.  I watered the crayons down and then added the pigment to the paper with a piece of plastic packaging and splatters from a paint brush. This is what the background looked like before adding more details:

Once that was dry, I started to create my flower embellishments.  I cut the Build a Flower 1 file in three different sizes.  I added Distress Oxide Ink to the flowers with Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold.

Once I had the color added to my flowers, I stamped some Peat Moss Archival Ink onto the flowers using a Carabelle Studio stamp.  This was a lot of fun!  I love adding stamping to my projects!

I added some Vicki Boutin Matte Acrylic Gel to some petals through a stencil and then foiled those areas with some aqua foil through my laminator.

Once my flowers were all detailed, I added a brad to secure the layers together.  What a lovely embellishment for a project; I love how these turned out.

They look so pretty and are the perfect accent to the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Coastal collection that I used to create my layout!

I cut the It's a Wonderful Day file from black cardstock and backed it with papers from the Simple Stories collection, then popped it up on some foam adhesive to complete the title.  To finish the layout, I added some distressed papers behind the photo and some simple embellishments.  I love how this turned out!

Be sure to check out the cut files over at the JustNick Cut File Shop!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

ALL FLOWERS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 10, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone ! My name is Sophie Delorme and I am more than thrilled to share my very first layout for JustNick with you today !

 

 

I created a page featuring my little girl and our dog Fiona enjoying the early days of spring. I used the gorgeous Cut File called "Loopy Circle Background" for my page, that reminded me of little roses.

I started by applying watercolors on thick white cardstock that matched my color scheme as my base for my page.

I backed the cut file with different lovely patterned papers from the Jen Hadfield "Hey, Hello" collection, and used some goodies from that same collection as well as from the Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters collection. I added adhesive foam in the back of the cut file before adhering it to ma page.

 

I fussy cut plenty of flowers from the Jen Hadfield patterned paper called Yellow Roses to embellish ma page. 

My title comes from the Heidi Swapp Planner Mini Stocker Book. I wrote down my journaling on little stripes of paper and added the date. I applied a few Nuvo Crystal Drops here and there on my page as the finishing touch !
And here it is ! I love the end-result and hope you do too ! That cut file is so beautiful and easy to use !
Here are a few close-ups.

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you so much for stopping by !

Black Beauty | Patricia June 9, 2020 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Beauty

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  I am using the brand new TN Beauty cut file for my project today and completely intended on using it for what I usually scrapbook about, my family.  But as a scrapbooker and a creative person, and more so lately, I tend to be influenced by what is going on around me.  So today's post is influenced by so much sadness and seeing toxic behaviors, but also bringing in my spiritual beliefs and faith into them with paper and this gorgeous cut file.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Beauty

With those feelings and influences, I immediately thought 'black beauty.'  So I built that cut file page around it by backing it with a rich beautiful woodgrain pattern paper and then added my title and embellishments around it.  Gorgeous against that black!

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Beauty

I tinkered a bit with adding something else to that left side, but decided to focus on a lot of white space in the design, and add a big pop of contrast and color to the right along with my typed journaling.  I used a scrap piece of cardstock with dried watercolors on it to type my scripture and add to the right side.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, Traveler's Notebook, TN Beauty

I used the same woodgrain pattern paper on the back of this cut file page, and then used the reverse of it with the floral and leaf patterns to back my leaves and flowers.  I did concentrate on backing the leaves first with most of the green from the pattern.

And then concentrated the large floral patterns to back the floral cut file parts of this file.  It came out even better than I imagined, looking like stained glass.

I hope this inspires you as well to use your gifts and talents to process through these difficult times.  It helps us to be the best we can for others that we influence in our lives.  Happy creating!!

Summer Layout|Babi Kind June 5, 2020 07:00

Hi Everyone.

It's Babi here. I'm so excited to share with you today my first project for JustNick.

I decided to create a summer layout with Prima Papers and Floral Ring 5 file. 

 

I cut two Floral Ring 5 files on my Silhouette Cameo in white paper to create the centerpiece of my project. Then, I backed the flowers with pattern papers to add more contrast to the page.

I added a black and white photo on one of the wreath and papers from Prima to create the background on the second file. 

 

 

After, I placed both files together in the center. I love how they match with the background papers.

Next, I added some extra papers, titles and enamel dots making sure not to over decorate the layout, keeping the files and photo as the main focus.

I hope you are getting ready for summer and to create beautiful projects with JusNick files.

Thanks for stopping by and keep safe.

Babi 

 

 


Lovely Bird | Majken Pullin June 4, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone-

Welcome to the blog - Majken here with you today sharing a sweet layout with a photo of a hummingbird captured a few years ago by my husband.  I used Spring Birdhouse and Stems 4...take a look!

I kept the layout simple by building a base to my layout using the Spring Birdhouse cut file that I cut out using white textured cardstock.  I backed the file using different papers from the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow collection.

I added several flowers using the ephemera and stickers from the collection to add layers, and I tucked in several stems from Stems 4.

They add a lovely subtle base to the flowers, especially when paired with the stems from the collection!  I left the bow at the top of the birdhouse simple, but you could also cut out the bow in a different color paper to add more dimension.

I added some additional stickers and enamel dots for more pops of color to complement the backed flowers of the cut file.  I need to go back and add a small bit of journaling to capture the date.

Here are the cut files I used on my layout today:

I hope you have a sweet day filled with lovely bird songs!

Spring // Joanna Bandelin June 3, 2020 07:00

Hello friends, I'm Joanna Bandelin and I'm so happy to be here sharing my first project for JustNick! I am a traditional scrapbooker and usually work with 12x12 scrapbook pages, if I'm in the mood I'll work on a pocket page or two. 
Today I'm sharing a sweet Springtime scrapbook page using 2 cut files. I love mixing and matching cut files when I can.

 

I love the beautiful Floral Butterfly and I knew I had to use it with this photo of my daughter smelling our lilacs.

To start my page, I did some messy ink splatters on the background with a soft pink and gold. Then I dug out a polka dot stencil and some modeling paste to create some texture. 

I chose paper from the Along the Way collection by Jen Hadfield to back the cut file. I thought the blues coordinated well with the lilacs in the photo.

For my title I used the pretty Spring Outline Alpha. I used more blue pattern paper and staggered the letters under the flowers. 

I love the look of the mixed media peeking under the cut files. 

To finish off my page I added a cluster of stickers under the butterfly and a few around my photo.

 

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!


Hello! June 2, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

It's Alena  here today with my first  blog post for JustNick. I would like to share my layoutI created using the 'Rose Cluster' cut file and  'My Favorite Story' collection with PinkFresh Studio.

 

After cutting out the cut file I backed the flowers with patterned papers. Then I separated the buds from the flowers to put together a harmonious composition.

After I arranged all the paper elements and embellishments, I still decided to add accents using machine stitching.

My title was built with puffy words.


Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful.


Best day ever | Anna Blades June 1, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Anna here today with you sharing my first TN spread (the second in my life) for JustNick Studio. I've been scrapbooking for several years and I've never felt so interested in this type of project. But now I must admit that I really enjoyed it!

To create this TN spread I used two of the new June cut files: TN Beauty and TN Best Day Ever, and mixed them with a lot of fun techniques.

For the left page, I used the title from the TN Best Day Ever as a stencil to apply the new texture paste from Heidi Swapp and run it through my Minc machine with the Champagne gold foil. I love the result.

I haven't used my fuse tool for a long time, so I decided to create a pocket shaker with a patterned paper and some beautiful sequins from Neat and Tangled.  On top of it, I placed the floral page from the TN Beauty cut file. I love all the sequins peeking up through the flowers.

I did it a little bit smaller than the left page, so I framed it with the same patterned paper on the left page.

All papers and embellishments are from "Emerson Lane" and "Honey and Spice" collections by Heidi Swapp.

I hope you like it and I encourage you to give a TN spread a try! They're so much fun to do!

Have a wonderful week!

See you soon!


Remember | Kelly Barron May 30, 2020 07:00

Hello friends! It's Kelly and today I have another TN spread to share using the Remember cut file from the store. 

I have been steadily working on this project, and wanted to summarize the best parts of my trip. I love the way that this cut file fills the page and I chose to back it with colorful papers in a rainbow order.

To add a bit more interest without overpowering the cut file, I added a few flowers in colors that matched the area to keep my rainbow theme.

I did place the pop dots under the flowers to create a bit of dimension without it being too much. I am not sure how thick my album will be and I do want to contain this trip in one album. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope that this inspires you to create! 

Kelly
