JustNick Cut File Store

Hoop Dreams | Jaclyn Rench May 25, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here to share a page I made combining two fun circular designs from the Just Nick store, Totally Tubular Background and 2016.

I sometimes struggle when creating layouts of my oldest son. I don't want to make his pages too theme-y or cutesy and luckily Just Nick has cut files to fit just about any need or style.

My boy is a HUGE basketball fan, so for his 11th birthday we surprised him with preseason tickets to see a Clevland Cavaliers game.  I had lots of pictures and journaling from this special memory but still wanted to make sure I had room for the fun stuff on the page.

I chose a couple of cut files with circles as a theme.  I knew this would be a fun way to reinforce the basketball idea, in a way that was both subtle but fun and effective.

I sized the Totally Tubular Background to around 6 inches square and cut it out two times from gray cardstock.  To kick the cut file up a notch, I selected a couple of designs from the 2016 file and sized them to fit within some of the circles on my background piece.

I didn't do any fancy welding or cutting within my silhouette software to mesh the two designs.  I simply sized them accordingly, cut them out separately and layered the designed circles atop of the matching background circle.  Using the same color cardstock tricks your eye and makes the whole design appear as if it is just one piece. 

We'd loved to see how you are designing with and combining your Just Nick files.  We hope you'll share with us on social media, using the #justnickstudio hashtag!

Mom You Are Loved May 24, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick fans! It's Lee-Anne here today and since Mother's Day was a little over a week ago, I  had my mom on my mind and thought I would create a special layout to honor her.

I really put my love into this layout and thought about what my mom really loves which are flowers and the color purple.

I cut the Floral Ring 2 cut file out on white card stock with my electronic die cutting machine and hand stitched with several colors of embroidery floss around the flowers, leaves and ring. When the hand stitching was completed, I watercolored the flowers, leaves and ring and then backed it on a piece of white card stock that I used the same colors of watercolors and the packaging technique to give it more color and an artsy feel to the page.

The title was created with the Mom cut file that I cut out on patterned paper with my electronic cutting machine and then I popped it up with some very thin strips of foam adhesive tape that I cut with some scissors and stuck it down onto a white piece of card stock that I trimmed a little larger than the title and finished it off with some black mini alpha stickers that I machine stitched to keep them secure. 

Here are the two cut files I created this layout with:

Floral Ring 2

Mom

I really don't think photos do this layout justice. It looks so much better in person.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Just Nick shop for these and many more cut files.  Happy scrapping!

 


I love being your Mom | Donna Espiritu May 23, 2017 12:01

Hello, Just Nick readers!
It's Donna here and I am sharing my second layout for the month.

I used several cut files in this layout. I love layering them to create texture and dimension

I used the Kaisercraft resist paper (which is included in the May kit "Sorbet" by Clique Kit to cut the Floral Swag cut file. You can see it here peeking at the bottom of the stacked photos

And then I tucked here in there the Mini Floral Buds cut file. I kept them white instead of adding color

I used a pink ombre paper to back the cut file MOM and adhered it with foam tape to add a bit of height.

I hope you liked my layout today!

Happy crafting,

 


Hello Good times | Laureen Wagener May 22, 2017 07:00

Hi friends -

it's Laureen up on the blog. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and maybe even got some crafting done?
I did - I finished up todays layout and am loving the summery vibe it gives!

I pulled out the awesome Poolside collection from Crate Paper - still one of my favorites ever!

I wanted to get a bubbly effect, because it kind of reminds me of water and bubbles and lightness and the beach and summer and all that good stuff - so I used the Totally Tubular Cut file along with the leaves and flowers from the new Take me to paradise set.

I simply cut the Totally Tubular Background out of white cardstock, backed it with a few papers from the collection and started layering up my pieces together.

The leaves and flowers were cut from white cardstock and then colored with watercolors to match the collection.

After all - this page came together so quick! Cut files just make it easy to create with - they are so fun to use!

 

I hope I inspired you a little and will catch you next month ;)
Happy crafting,

Laureen

Meet our May Guest Designer + freebie time! May 19, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Good morning! It's that time of the month again, to welcome a new Guest Designer to our blog and show off their fabulous creations!

Today, we welcome Elsie Robinson!

Hey everyone, I’m Elsie and I’m so happy to be a Guest Designer for JustNick this month. I’m 23 and live in Brighton, England and I’m a total paper addict! I’m currently on the Pink Paislee and Citrus Twist kits Design Teams and you can also come say hi on the links below!

Now, I don’t actually own a die-cutting machine – haha! So you’re probably thinking ‘what business does she have with being a Guest Designer for a cut file store?!’ Well… I actually use cut files on my layouts by using some good old-fashioned pencils, scissors and tracing paper! 

 To use the cut files I print them out with my regular home printer and use the tracing paper and pencil to copy the design and transfer it onto whichever patterned papers I’m using. It’s obviously a process that takes a little more time, but it does combat my Silhouette FOMO as I still get to use some of the gorgeous cut file designs!

We gave Elsie free reign on the store to select whatever designs she wanted to use for her projects, and check out what she created:

 

 

 Cut file used:

Happy Little Monsters

Handcut letters

 

 

I've recently loved making cute little characters for my pages, so when I saw these adorable little monsters, I knew I had to make a page documenting a photo of my brothers and I being silly when we were younger. I especially love the way the blue monster turned out as he looks so cute and goofy with his buckteeth! The Handcut Letters cut file, was a perfect match for this layout as the letters are so cartoony, and I know will be using them for many more layouts in the future!

 Amazing right? and all by hand people?! Check out this next project:

 

 I actually made another hot air balloon layout about a year ago and it’s still one of my favourite layouts, so I thought it was about time to make another one!

 

Cut files used:

Up in the air

Delicate Florals

I printed the balloons in three different sizes and traced the lines of the cut file to add some stitching details. It’s hard to cut out really intricate shapes without a cutting machine, but I find that stitching is a great way to add the detail back in. I also followed the same steps with the Delicate Florals cut file, I love the touch of whimsy those cute florals added to the page!

 

Pretty amazing, I think! Now, we would love to offer you the Up in the Air cut file for FREE until midnight CST May 31, 2017! Just enter the code: AIRFREE  at checkout... no purchase necessary.

Thank you SO much to Elsie for being our GDT this month! Check out more of her work here:

My Science Guy May 18, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today with a scrappy confession. I've been very bad about scrapping layouts of my son. He doesn't like having his picture taken. He doesn't post selfies of himself all that often. It was quite evident that his sisters get lots more attention on my scrapbook pages when I was putting my latest layouts in albums. So for a little while I thought I would concentrate on scrapping the photos I do have of him. These were from Christmas a year and a half ago.

I used this awesome background called Weird Science. When I first saw it, I thought of these pictures I had of him receiving a bartender chemistry set for Christmas. He loves math and science. He is currently working his way through college as a bartender ... so of course he needed a bartender chemistry set. 

I used the Simple Set Alphabet for my title. I like the whimsical feel to this font.

I backed the negative space with pattern papers from the Shimelle Little By Little collection. The circle patterns in the paper drew me in. I knew they would be perfect with all the circles in this background cut file, plus the primary colors are great for scrapping my science guy.

Here are the cut files I used today...

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your week.


Awesome Day | Yvette Weber May 17, 2017 07:00

Hi Scrapping Friends!  

I'm back with you today to share a Vacation layout created with the Borders 1 and Arrow Set 2 cut files.

 

This photo was taken on one of our trips to Barbados.  We spend the mornings at the beach and after lunch it was pool time! I combined the Hardy Hodgepodge, Bowl of Dreams and Souper Celebration collections from Jillibean Soup for this layout!

 To create my starting point for my layout, I used multiple patterned papers for each of the Borders 1 cut file and adhered it horizontally onto a 11x11 white cardstock.

     I created a cluster of embellishments on the top right hand corner of my photo that includes a couple of wood veneers, some die cut pieces and a flair. 

I  keep the embellishments to a minimum on the left side of my photo, and added some journaling below my photo.

To the top left hand corner of my layout I added a small banner. To create my title I combined one of the arrows from the cut file with a couple of words from the cardstock stickers.

A few paint splashes and some sequins finish off this layout.

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Check out the Just Nick Studio shop for more amazing cut files! 


Happy Love | Delicate Butterflies May 16, 2017 15:27

Hi Just Nick Fans!

Michelle here with a new layout to share with you all today.  I have used two cut files on my layout, firstly the gorgeous Delicate Butterflies and also the Word 4 cut files which I used to create my title. 

I new as soon as I saw this cut file I knew it would be perfect for these photos of my daughters entering the wearable arts competition at our caravan.   Yes my girls outfits are made out of paper!!  I really love the vintage vibe of this cut file which I cut out on a floral patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection.  As the name would suggest, this is a very delicate cut file - I would definitely recommend cutting it out with a sharp blade and not having a too sticky mat as it is very fine.  I really liked how the butterflies flowed down the page and I was able to tuck my photos in and around the file this helps your eye wander down the page from the first photo to my second photo too. 

Next, I wanted to add a second cut file to my layout - and the Word 4 file worked perfectly for a fun title, and adding it on the larger butterflies added an extra layer of dimension to my page too.  I first cut out the outline in some teal coloured cardstock so that it matched the colours is in the embellishments and the cut file.  Then I cut it out on white cardstock to fill in the file and make it pop off the page.  

I really enjoyed cutting out these files and using patterned paper added some interest and variance in colour to the butterflies and of course made it super easy to embellish with more of the Maggie Holmes collection.  

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Do you cut files with mainly cardstock or do you use patterned paper as well?

Michelle xx

 


Happy | Nicole Nowosad May 15, 2017 09:30

Good morning! Nicole here to share a quick and easy project using our Basic Block Background and Word 4 cut files!

I haven't had a lot of mojo lately. Life just gets busy and sometimes sucks the scrappy life out of you, so I wanted to create a really simple page with no stress!

The Basic Block Background is super simple to fill. Those basic rectangles are clean and graphic and heck - you can use a lot of scraps to fill this one in if that's your plan!

I added a really simple title using the Word 4 cut file set and a lot of fussy cut flowers. Cutting those by hand relax me :)

Cut files used:

Basic Block Background

Word 4

That's it for me today! I will be back later in the week to share  a FREEBIE and a new Guest Designer too! Please stop by!

Pinspiration | Hello Trouble May 11, 2017 07:00

Good morning!! Nicole here today to share a fun pinspiration project with you on the blog today!

Here was my inspiration piece that I found on Pinterest

Fun right! I love the colors and all those fun circles and so I chose to use Circle Background 3 for the circular portion of my page.

I quite simply punched a lot of circles and layered them behind the cut file. I used a pink and yellow color combo and added in some fussy cut flowers for some fun around my photo.

I really kept things simple and have even more ideas for this inspiration piece for another scrapbook page ! I hope you are inspired to incorporate some cut files into your projects!

Check out my process video for this project:

Pinterest Inspiration
Hello everybody. I am excited to share this beautiful spring layout I created using several different stickers and cut-aparts from my stash! I found this inspiration on Pinterest and I was immediately inspired to create a layout using white, pink and orange. What a beautiful color combination!

The first thing I did before applying photos and embellishments on this layout was print the Mini Floral Buds digital cut file from Just Nick Studio's shop on white cardstock using my color printer. I wanted to create a floral background for my layout and I did not have the right patterned paper for this.

I added some clear butterflies from the Woodland collection to add more color to the floral buds.

I used a few cut-apart labels, stickers, stickers words to help tell my story.

Thanks for visiting today!

Today | Word 4 | Michelle Whorwood May 09, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone,

Michelle here with clean and simple layout featuring the Word 4 cut file.  I really wanted to keep my cut file the main focus of the page so I decided to cut it out LARGE!  I am really happy with the way this turned out.  

First, I cut the file out on patterned paper so it gave me the green/blue outline and then I recut the file out on some cardstock, I first, made the cut file ever so slightly bigger so that it fit easily in the negative space of my outline.  I decided to keep my photo neutral and print it out in black and white and I love the softness of it agains the bold title!

I next added the globe to the middle of the 'O' as this is a photo of a recent overseas holiday it fit the theme really well and added some extra embellishments to the top!

I kept the rest of the embellishments quite simple as it is really all about the cut file here. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, have you gone BOLD and BIG with your cut files and maybe created a title that is the main focus of your page?  I hope I have inspired you to do this one day on a layout. 

Til next time xx


Pinterest Inspired Mother's Day Cards | Jaclyn Rench May 08, 2017 07:00

Happy Monday, Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  I'm excited to kick off the week as the design team shares projects with you that have been inspired by Pinterest. 
As I anticipated this assignment, I knew I'd want to look at my pinterest boards to gather inspiration for Mother's Day cards.
I found this image that I had pinned and immediately knew I could recreate this same type of floral heart with the Stems for Stephanie cut file.
To ensure that my finished design would fit on a standard sized card front, I sized my florals down dramatically, cutting several versions of the file from a pile of scraps of pretty pink patterned papers.  I had fun layering the different shapes and sizes of flowers and love the dimension and texture it adds to my card.
Black enamel dots and a sprinkling of clear sequins add a special finishing touch to the card design.

My second card was inspired by an entirely different piece.  I have long had a thing for wreaths, both in home décor and paper crafting, so it was no surprise that I came across a wreath related image while perusing my boards

When I spotted this image in particular, I knew I could create a similar look by using the inside of the wreath to frame out my sentiment.

I sized the Wreath and Floral Wreaths cut files to fit atop a 5" square card, and printed out a favorite quote on a white cardstock circle to fit inside the layered pieces.

Again, adding a sprinkling of enamel dots, this time in the same color family, creates extra texture and interest.

This was a fun creative challenge and one I'll certainly revisit again.  I hope you'll stick with us on the blog, all week long, to see how each designer interprets this pinterest inspired challenge!

 Supplies used:

Stems for Stephanie

Wreath

Floral Wreaths


Happy NSD | Nicole Nowosad May 06, 2017 17:00

Hello hello! I am excited to be back on the blog sharing a project for a change for interNational Scrapbook Day!

I decided to use the Floral Corner cut file for most of design - I love it cut simply from some patterned paper.

I also used a new cut file to the store - Mom - for my title. I lined it with some vellum so that it didn't get lost too much on the woodgrain paper.

To celebrate NSD - you can get the MOM design for FREE until May 7, 2017 at midnight only, using the code: MOMFREE at checkout.

Don't forget that the entire store is also on sale until May 7, 2017 at midnight also - 50% everything! Use the code: NSD2017 and the discount will be applied to your order. You need to enter the code, orders will not be adjusted.


Family Are Better Together May 06, 2017 14:00

Hello friends! Happy National Scrapbook Day. It's design team member Lee-Anne here sharing a layout I created combining two Just Nick cut files to make an entirely new design.

In Silhouette Studio, the software for Silhouette Cameo, I ungrouped or released the compound path and traced one of the heart designs (the top right heart) of the Basic Hearts cut file and enlarged it. I also traced the Borders 1 cut file, replicated it three times, one below the other, widened it slightly and placed it on top of the heart shape, grouped it and clicked "merge". This creates a heart shaped outline with the Borders 1 cut file filling the inside of the heart shape. I grouped the two design together and clicked "crop". This puts the two designs together. I cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo on white card stock and backed it with patterned papers. 

With several colors of embroidery floss, I decided to hand stitch some plus signs for texture around the layout and around the heart I hand stitched and alternated colors that coordinated with the papers.


Combining cut files into one cut file is a fun technique and you can get very creative. I encourage you to give this a try with any two cut files in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

Cut files I used on my layout:

Basic Hearts

Borders 1

Friends Become Our Chosen Family May 06, 2017 11:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends. Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Marcia here today with some scrappy inspiration and a FREE cut file! I love using circle frames around my photos. Floral Ring 2 is a new digital cut file, so I thought I would use it to showcase a photo of my besties. 

To add dimension to my layout, I layered some more flowers on top of the Floral Ring. These are from the Stems For Stephanie digital cut file.

I used one more cut file today. I just love this title, Friends Become Our Chosen Family. These wonderful women really are like family for me. They were neighbors but most have moved away, still we get together at least once a month.

Here the cut files I used today...

If you are interested in watching my process video, here it is ...


Thanks so much for stopping by. You can grab the FLORAL RING 2 cut file for free using the code: RINGFREE at checkout until midnight on May 7, 2017 only!

Dream Today - iNSD 2017 May 06, 2017 07:00

Hello hello hello!!! It's Cathy here and I'm so excited to be participating in the celebrations here on the JustNick Blog!  We will have several different designers posting through the day and there will be a free cut file to go along with the posts!  Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page to get your code :)

So for my layout I actually used 3 different cut files!  I used the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file, the Feathers 2 cut file, and the Sweater Weather cut file.  I decided to finally get in on the dreamcatcher fad, you know, considering that it's almost over!  Well let me tell you, this turned out even better than I expected, and although I had to be patient when it came to cutting out the feathers and gluing everything down, the actual design came together super quick!  Don't forget to pop over to my YouTube channel to see my process video!

I did a little mixed media behind my dreamcatcher before I glued it down, and I love the addition of the white feathers with my patterned paper feathers.  It really brought a level of dreamy whimsy that I had wanted in my layout!  If you haven't tried a dreamcatcher yet then I suggest you grab yourself the feather and dreamcatcher cut file and get to work, you won't be disappointed!

 

 

You can grab the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file for FREE using the code: DREAM2FREE at checkout now until May 7, 2017 only!

Making memories with you | Laureen Wagener May 04, 2017 07:00

Hi friends -

today I have a fun layout to share using one of my favorite scrapbook collections and a super fun cut file!



One of my favorite collections still is the Fancy Free collection from Paige Evans and Pink Paislee that came out last year!
Now ever since then Paige's collections include at least one paper that consists of a bunch of squares and different patterns.
For my layout today I decided to use that paper and create a huge title with it!

Paige always creates super cute layouts using one of the papers and forming a title - by cutting a letter out of each square. Missy Whidden also shared a lovely page recently, so I had to create a layout like that.

I wanted to use a cut file I have never used from Just Nick, so I cut my title using the Handcut letters 2 cut file. Such a fun and beautiful font!
Searching pinterest for quotes is always a great idea - that's how I found my title quote

Making memories with you is my favorite thing to do

Now, not all the words would fit onto my page, so I used some white foam letter thickers for a few words.
Because the page was filled with my title I only used a few wood veneers and layered one behind each of my three photos.

 

Now go and grab your favorite Alphabet cut file from Just Nick and create a bold, vibrant title!

Happy crafting,

Laureen

Thank you for being a friend May 03, 2017 07:00

Hello, everyone! Donna here sharing my first layout for the month of May.

I created a simple scrapbook page about me and my dear friend. I printed this photo long time ago but just used it for my project today. It was taken at The Kingdom Tower in Riyadh when we went there together with our families.

I've been into subtle colors lately and that's what I did here with the flowers and the butterflies which I think matched perfectly.

I cut the Floral corner cut file into two instead of using it in just one corner

I used a mix of pink, yellow, orange and green watercolor to coordinate with the colors of the papers and embellishments I used. I love the sweet colors in the "Sorbet" kit by Clique Kits.

I used the Delicate butterflies cut file as a stencil. I carefully brushed watercolor to outline the shape of the butterflies. And once dry, I wrote a bit of journaling in the butterflies and added puffy hearts in some of them.

I layered some paper strips, messy thread, scattered colorful sequins and other embellishments.

Cut files used:

Floral corner

and Delicate butterflies

That's all from me today. I hope you liked my page.

Also, don't forget Just Nick is celebrating it's 2nd year anniversary with an awesome sale!

Happy crafting,


Cards For A Special Day | Yvette Weber May 02, 2017 07:00

Hi my scrapping friends!  It's Yvette back with you today!

Today I have a couple of cards to share that I created using the Prairie FlowersGeometric Lace Background and the Geometric Lace Background 3 cut files from Just Nick Studio.  I love creating handmade cards to give to friends and to loved one, they're so amaze that I took the time to create something beautiful for them.          

The beautiful background cut files at Just Nick Studio are such a great source of inspiration for both layouts and cards. You can choose to use them alone or layer with multiple cut files to create lots of interest on your projects. 

Cut file use on the first card.... 

 

For my first card I decided to use the Geometric Lace Background 3 cut file, cut it from white cardstock and adhere it onto some patterned papers from the Jillibean Soup - Hardy Hodgepodge collection.

  I then created a banner with my sentiment and completed the card with a few enamel dots along with some for the die cut pieces from the Hardy Hodgepodge collection.

For my second card I used the Geometric Lace Background.  I decided to use white cardstock on both the cut file and the backing and adding another layer underneath with pattern paper from the Dear Lizzy-Lovely Day collection.  

Here's the cut file used in second card...

I then cut the Prairie Flowers  using pattern paper from the Pebbles -Sunshiny Day collection. I created a circle with my sentiment and to give the card a little more dimension I used foam dots to adhere it down. I randomly place some fussy cut flowers onto the Prairie flowers and finished the card with a flair and a few enamel dots.  

     I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick Cut Files! 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Before I leave you today, Just Nick is celebrating it's second year with an awesome sale this week....so now is a great time to stock up on all those cut files you have on your wish list!

Spring | Yvette Weber April 29, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans! It's Yvette here today!  This week it's all about Spring and I chose this photo of Max helping his dad in the garden (okay playing!) I always have a difficult time choosing just one cut file to work with, so for this layout I combined three of Nicole's amazing cut files the Spring Words, Butterfly Background 2 and the Doodle Frames!

Here are the cut files I used on my layout....

I enlarged the right frame from the doodle frames set and cut it from light blue cardstock, then place onto both white and pink cardstock which I used as my base and stitched around the perimeter.  

     I decided to used all of the words in the spring words cut file on my page and cut it from several different pattern papers using the Jillibean Soup-Souper Celebration collection. 

I created a little cluster on the top right hand corner of my photo by tucking some of the die cut flowers from the Souper Celebration collection underneath, along with a stamp flower, and cutting apart a few butterflies from the butterfly background 2 cut file and adding one to the top.      

I couldn't resist added a couple more butterflies and added one to bottom left hand corner of my photo and the other to the top left hand corner of my layout.  

A few paint splashes and some journaling finish off my layout!

Thanks for stopping by :)

  I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick Cut Files! 


Bloom with Doodle Flowers April 28, 2017 07:02

Hi everyone!  This week we are celebrating SPRING on the blog!  One of my favorite things to do is spruce up the front steps with some potted flowers, and last year I had a little helper.

 

This Doodle Flowers cut file has a bunch of perfect little flowers for layering and adding some dimension to your page!

Doodle Flowers

 

I sketched out some wonky circle lines in Silhouette Studio and used that to create my own sketchy circle background.  

Once I had my photo layers done, I added a few embellishments from the kit I was working with and then cut a whole bunch of flowers from the Doodle Flower set from different colored papers.

An easy way to make a page look springy is with lots of flowers!

Thanks for joining me today and HAPPY SPRING!


Details | Jaclyn Rench April 27, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today. 

In my opinion, nothing screams spring more than a bounty of pretty flowers, am I right?!  So, when assigned with the task of deriving inspiration from Spring, my first stop was to scan my Just Nick library for a favorite floral design.  I quickly settled on the Floral and Fauna 1 cut file, as I was drawn to it's clean, bold and graphic nature.

I chose two of my favorite flowers from the cut file and sized them to around a 3.5" diameter before cutting them from a variety of pretty patterned papers.

I divided my page background in two, along the diagonal, and sprinkled my cut florals along that divide.  My pictures and journaling were nestled in among the top right edge and bottom left edge of the flowers, to tie all of my page elements together.

I layered some florals atop of one another and dressed up each one with buttons, enamel dots and/or pearls.  Those extra details really make the diecut designs extra special and give them quite a presence on the page.

If it's springtime in your part of the world, we'd love to see the spring inspired pages you're making with your favorite Just Nick designs.  We hope you'll share those with us on social media by tagging your creations with #Justnickstudio .

Hello Spring | Tarrah McLean April 26, 2017 07:00

Hi there Just Nick friends!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you.....all week we are celebrating Spring here on the Just Nick blog by sharing our Spring themed projects using the awesome Just Nick Studio cut files

I pulled out some REALLY old Bella Blvd products for this layout...I love the pastel colours and how much they remind me of Easter as its currently not Spring in Australia...its currently Autumn!

This is the Just Nick Studio cut file I used on this layout....the Hello Spring title.

That gorgeous thin multi-coloured stripe paper was the paper I decided to cut the Hello Spring title out of....I just love how this turned out....better than expected! I added a few embellishments to the title to help decorate the layout a little bit more and add interest..  

 

My niece is an absolute bundle of gorgeous! She is SO photogenic...perfect for this scrapbooker....hopefully she will appreciate me creating these layouts for her one day!

In this photo, she was posing a new outfit that her parents had bought for her, she is only age 1 in this photo but already a pro at posing lol! As the outfit has bumblebees on it, the photo was perfect for this layout!

That bumblebee chipboard sticker had to make its way on this layout since there were bees on Amelia's outfit and its her nickname too!! I really like how this layout turned out....I literally cut the title first and then decided on a photo, added some other small bits of paper and embellishments and the layout was complete! Super quick one this time! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today! I hope you have been enjoying the Spring inspiration from us? Why not check out the Just Nick Studio store for some cut files that would suit your next project?

Happy creating!

Best Mom | Laureen Wagener April 25, 2017 07:00

Hi friends - Laureen back on the blog!

Today I was assigned to create a project inspired by Spring and I immediatly knew which photo to scrap.


It was my birthday on the 16th of April and we went to the zoo where they had beautiful trees in full bloom all over the place and my mom and I took a few pictures standing by one of the trees. So of course it had to be one of those pictures - because trees in bloom are always screaming: IT'S SPRING!


I scrolled through my cut files from Just Nick and found the beautiful Floral Swag cut file and noticed I had never used it before.
I wanted to make this the focal element of my page so I enlarged it as much as possible and cut it out of the beautiful Pink Paislee Oh my Heart paper.



The open space in the cut file was backed with vellum, as I like the softened effect that gives. Now I've been a bad girl and just noticed as I am writing this post, that I used a few additional cut files that aren't for sale yet. You will be able to snag them next month ;)


I adhered a strip of a wooden paper, because the page looked super naked without it. On top I stuck down my cut file element on some foam squares. I really like the effect that gives - as if the picture is peeking out of the florals.



I embellished with a few chipboard flowers and scattered tons of enamel dots around my page. I am really loving that look lately and may be doing that for several new layouts.

I hope you like todays inspiration!

Onto the next time - happy crafting!

xo, Laureen

Glorious Moment April 24, 2017 07:00

Hello friends! It's Think Spring week at Just Nick. Lee-Anne here today sharing a layout of my daughter and her passion for flowers and gardening. 

I chose the Posie Swag cut file for this layout.

The cut file was cut out on white textured card stock with my electronic cutting machine. As you can see, I hand stitched around the entire design. I'm not going to lie, this took several hours, but I really enjoy hand stitching and find it to be very relaxing. It takes me back to my old cross stitching days before I discovered scrapbooking. 

After the hand stitching was completed, I painted/watercolored the flowers with a water brush and a pink Gelato (Bubble Gum) as well as the leaves and stems with a green Gelato (Lime Green) and then I added the die cut swag on top of a pink water colored background piece of white card stock.To complete the layout, I embellished with some die cuts, enamel dots, paint splatters and some handwritten journaling for more of a personal touch.  

Here are some fussy cut flowers, hearts and my title.

I am really loving the hand stitching trend and am on a stitching binge at the moment. It was fun to create this layout. I hope you enjoy it too.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Posie Swag cut file and hundreds more digital cut files in the Just Nick shop.  Have a lovely day!

 

 


Together | Michelle Whorwood April 22, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone! 

Michelle here with a new layout featuring the Butterfly Background 2 cut file.  As soon as I saw this file I wanted to use on it a layout as it is so pretty and whimsical. We recently had this family photo taken at my youngest daughters' 5th birthday party and I wanted a cut file that would frame my photo and add some background detail which the butterflies do perfectly.  Here is my layout:

I wanted to make my layout as pretty and whimsical as possible so I added a bit of mixed media to my background patterned paper by using a Shimmers Raspberry Sherbert Paste-eez texture paste applied with a credit card as well as adding some mint and gold mist.  I then added the Butterfly cut file cut out on white cardstock and then added some navy patterned paper to the larger butterflies.  I love the way the butterflies look on the textured background and how the white pops on it as well.  I then added some layers of pink, mint and yellow patterned papers and ephemera from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection and then matted the patterned paper background back onto some white cardstock and added some machine stitching to create more texture to my page. 

Close ups:

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  I hope you have enjoyed my layout using this gorgeous butterflies background.

 

 


Happy Summer - Cat Martin April 21, 2017 06:00

Hello hello hello!  It's Cat here back with another layout!  I am so happy and excited with how this layout turned out so I hope you like it too!.  I used the Radiate Cut File and cut it out from a polka dot patterned paper.  I then backed it with several different types of paper, including papers that originally came from some old K & Company Smash Books that I never even came close to completing!  I kept the embellishments and the background paper simple to really show off the photo and the cut file.  My picture perfectly fit in the circle in the centre.  The Radiate Cut File is perfect for emphasizing one picture and pretty much would fit any theme! I know for many of us who scrapbook the men and boys in our lives we have a difficult time but that's what I love about having the opportunity to create for JustNick, so I can showcase different ways to use her files and hopefully help those who are not sure exactly how to scrap for our boys! I will also have a process video up on my YouTube channel if you want to see how I put it all together, including all of my struggles!

 

 


Bubble Blowing Fun | Marcia Dehn-Nix April 20, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! Marcia here today. I have an awesome layout to share today. This one has a photo of my daughter at 15. She had just learned how to blow bubbles with her bubble gum. Of course, after learning how, she was chewing gum and blowing bubbles all the time. I thought it would be fun to use lots of circles in my design to put the emphasis on the bubbles. I selected the Protozoa Background and selectively backed only a few of the circles.

I used a sheet of acetate to back my cut file. The acetate sheet had lots of colorful circles on it as well. I created my title by mixing the Outline Alpha  and the Script Font digital cut files. I backed the outline alpha letters with a marbled pattern paper that reminded me of bubble gum.

Here is a closer look...

I framed my photo with the Round and Round cut file, adding even more circles to my design.

Here are the cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to check out what's new in the JustNick store.


Springy Cards April 19, 2017 09:37

Hey friends!

Melissa here with you today and I am so happy to have the opportunity to share with you a couple of cards. They ooze Spring with some fun, bright colors and, as I sit here typing this, I really need to stare at them longer because it is a dark, drizzly day in the pacific northwest. 

Alright, let's not waste any time! Here is card number one

Gah, I just love Nicole's background cut files! I really do find joy in figuring out how to adapt those files to the smaller scale of cards. Sometimes it's super easy and other times, like this one, it gets a little tricky. 

I used the Protozoa Background for this card. It already had a thin and lacy feel to it and when I shrunk it down for my card, it was soooooo fragile! But, taking my time to take it off the cut mat was so worth it because I love the fun and playful rhythm it bring to this happy card. Here is a little close up...

Just a little tip... this cut file did not cut out clean. If you look reeeeeally closely, you'll see some little tears and pieces. Sometimes you just have to let it go and embrace the imperfections. :) 

Alright, here is the second card..

For this fun card, I used lots of washi tape and another fun background cut file. It was really simple... almost too simple... to put this card together. I grabbed some washi and just laid it on, row and after row. Once the card base was filled, I topped it with this cut file. I did resize the cut file a bit. It originally is circles and I warped it a bit to make ovals. 

This card only needed a few embellishments so as not to overwhelm the washi background.

Here is a little close-up

Thank you for joining me today!

Here is a list of the cut files used:

Hello Love April 18, 2017 07:00

Hi everybody. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout. Every once in a while, I like to get messy and when I say messy, I really mean it. By the time I completed this layout, my fingers were stained purple and teal. What a pretty combination! 

For this layout, I used the Kaleidoscope cut file. This looks so pretty inked up.

I decided to use the digital cut file as a stencil and embellishment for my layout.

I used Clique Kit's April kit to decorate my layout once the mist was dry.

I used a few floral stamps by Altenew complete the layout. The layout looked like it needed more so I pulled out my stamps and started stamping and cutting the images from patterned paper.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a great week!


Hello, my love April 17, 2017 07:48

Hello!

Donna here sharing a layout using one of the newest cut files in the Just Nick Studio store. 

I missed a post last time because my computer broke and the Silhouette studio software kept on crashing on hubby's computer. But I finally got my computer and Silhouette running!!! And hubby got me a new printer too!! I have to figure out how to set it up first but I am excited!

Now onto my layout. I used this beautiful Butterfly background 2 cut file and added color to it using Prima Marketing Inc watercolors

I created a border around the white cardstock by cutting different lengths and widths of paper strips from my Clique Kits April "Jellybean" kit.

To create a unified look, I chose colors similar from the strips of papers. I only adhered the middle part of the butterfly cut file and lifted the wings for a bit of height

I brushed black watercolor to the alpha stickers to make it stand out against the colorful background.

Then I clustered the hearts around the layers of photo and messy thread

That's all from me today, I hope you liked my project!

Happy crafting,


Yay | Tarrah McLean April 15, 2017 07:00

Happy Easter Just Nick friends!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! I have a new layout to share with you but believe it or not, its not Easter themed! It's a birthday themed layout I am sharing this week as we are all using words/sentiment cut files on our projects!

I combined two different cut file sets from the Just Nick store for this layout...I used the candles and the balloons included in the Birthday sentiments set below.....  

I decided to add my photos as a photo strip this time...I really like this look whenever I have a few photos I want to include as a series. The skinny photos means you can layer and tuck embellishments and cut files in and around the photos!

and the Make a Wish and Yay words from the Card sentiments 1 set.

These photos were taken at my little guy's 4th birthday a couple of years ago...he absolutely LOVES cake of any kind and that is what he gets most excited about at birthday parties! Even his own!

The Make a Wish collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio was perfect for this layout...the Just Nick cut files match with this collection perfectly!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick Studio blog today! Check out the cut files available in the Just Nick store now!

Happy creating!

Tarrah x


Meet our April Guest Designer + FREEBIE time! April 14, 2017 07:00

 Meet our April Guest Designer - Annelie Maddock! 

We asked Annelie to create a few projects with whichever of our cut files she was inspired to use and look what she sent us!

Here is what Annelie had to say about her project:

On this page I used the "Sprinkle Background". I made it a bit smaller, then used it as a mask with texture paste. It's something I do often, I just LOVE the dimension it gives on the page.

  

For my title I used the word "together" from the "You Make My Heart Smile" cutfile. Adore that font so much! I cut it out on white cardstock, then used mist to make it fit in with the many colours on this page!

Cut files used:

You Make My Heart Smile

Sprinkle Background

Annelie also sent us this fun summery page!

I am totally addicted to background files! For this LO I used the "Little Black Dots" background, but as you can see on MY page it became a rainbow background!

 

Then, because it's a summery LO I used the sun & clouds from the "Sunny Days" file. To make them stand out on my page I did some faux stitching.

Cut files used:

Little Black Dots Background

Sunny Days

Great projects, right!? We would love to see what you can envision with the Little Black Dots cut file so we are giving it away this month for FREE!

Just use the code: DOTSFREE at checkout and it's all yours!

Code only valid until April 30, 2017 at midnight CST.

 

Thanks so much to Annelie Maddock for guesting for us this month!

Bloom | Jaclyn Rench April 13, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here today. This week the Design Team is zeroing in on the many words and sentiment designs available in the Just Nick store.  This was a fun challenge for me, as I love typography and making my titles stand out on a page.

Spring is in full bloom here in Ohio and even though my allergies might not agree, I am enjoying the pretty blossoms that are popping up all over my yard.  Since many of these flowers only last a short season, I can't resist capturing them on film.  These pretty pictures were inspiring me, so I went to my Just Nick library to pair with them, the perfect title.

The brushstroke style of letters featured in the Good Vibes file immediately caught my eye.  There are four different sentiments included in this cut design. I chose the word 'Bloom', as it was a perfect match to the story I wanted to tell.

As you'll note, the sentiments in this file are encompassed within a circle.  I chose to eliminate the circle portion of the design, as did so simply by 'releasing the compound path' on that portion of the file and sizing the remaining text accordingly.

I couldn't make a flowery, spring-like page without including some of my favorite Just Nick floral designs.  I cut a few different shapes and sizes of the Doodle Flowers out of neutral patterns and sprinkled them throughout my design.  Layering and embellishing each flower gives them presence but still allows the pictures and title to take center stage.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Dream Big | Laureen Wagener April 12, 2017 07:00

Hi cut file fans -

today it's Laureen back on the blog featuring a new layout using a gorgeous cut file from the store - Dream Big.

It was my task to finish up a project focusing on word art or phrases from the store - which belong to my favorites!!

I just got some new Altenew stamps and wanted to incorporate them into my new layout, they were the perfect little add-on to my minimal layout. I just am loving how this one came together and turned out!

I let my Silhouette draw the design for me and then pierced holes all around - and then same procedure as always - just stitch with white thread and your needle.

The design stitching was rather quick and easy and then it was time to embellish.
As I already said, I wanted to keep it to a minimum to really focus on my stitching and the word art, so I just stamped three flowers, stems and black and white accents and arranged them in a triangle - which finished off my page.

I hope you enjoyed this and like the layout -
I will be back on the blog later this month!

Happy crafting -

Laureen

Enjoy The Moment April 11, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick fans! It's Lee-Anne here today sharing another layout. For this project, it's all about words and/or sentiments. Yesterday was National 
Sibling Day and I wanted to scrap a layout of my two older kiddos who have always been exceptionally close and still are today.  

I chose the sentiment "Enjoy The Moment" for my page.  For good measure, I also used the File Folders cut file that I cut twice on patterned paper and placed one behind the photo and the other behind the felt flower. 

The black title of my project, was cut on black card stock with my electronic cutting machine.  To give it more of a dimensional look, I cut it out five times, stacked them and glued them down with a liquid glue pen. I think black titles make multi-colored layouts pop and I love the contrast.

The circle technique was inspired by a class that my friend and Just Nick owner, Nicole Nowosad taught at Crop & Create Calgary last month. I love this technique!

Here are the cut files I used from the Just Nick store:

#funtimes #captured April 10, 2017 07:57 1 Comment

This week on the blog we are focusing on using sentiment and phrase cut files.  I created this boyish page, so I wanted something to go along with the theme, and I thought the hashtags cut file was a good match. But this file could be used with so many type of page.

Hashtags 1

 

I used the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection for this page.  On the background, I cut out a large diamond shape from a piece of patterned paper with diamonds on it. I wanted to mimic an argyle pattern, so I machine stitched and hand stitched some larger diamonds to the right.  

 

 

I fussy cut out some of the smaller diamonds and scattered them on the page.

Just a few layers around my photo and some splatters on the background, too.

 I also used the negative space of the diamond to write my journaling and scattered a few more embellies around the page.

 

Take a browse through the shop and check out all the great phrases and fonts available!


Hello Gorgeous | Michelle Whorwood April 07, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick Fans!

Michelle here with a new layout featuring some more of the gorgeous Just Nick Cut files.  I honestly just cannot get enough of them. They are so easy to use and love them for layering and adding interest to my page!

I have two of the newer cut files on my layout today.  Firstly, I have the Floral Swag which I have used to frame the photo of my two girls.  I love how this looks white on white with just a pop of colour in the floral centres.  It also complements my flowers that I have added to my layout as well.  Next I have created my title using another cut file called Hello Spring.  My gosh I love this one, BUT it isn't spring time here in NZ as we are going into Autumn but I didn't let that stop me and so I have cut the whole file out but fussy cut out the 'Spring' section and used the 'Hello' as part of my title.  I also  backed it in the same colour patterned paper that I have used for the Floral Swag.  I love how easy it is to adapt the Just Nick Cut files to work with the theme I am scrapbooking.  

Here are some close ups:

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and I hope you have enjoyed my layout with the Just Nick Cut Files today.  

Take care

Hey Gorgeous | Marcia Dehn-Nix April 06, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends! Marcia here today. I have a sweet layout to share using one of the newest cut files in the store. When I saw the gorgeous new Butterfly Background 2 digital cut file I could not wait to use it. I love the delicate butterflies. This cut file is perfect for Spring photos, but I thought it would also be lovely with a photo of my adventurous daughter. 

Here is a better look at those amazing butterflies...

To form my title, I combine the Hey speech bubble from the Girl Power digital cut file with a rubber charm with the word Gorgeous. This was cut pretty small. If you are having difficulties cutting items with your electronic machine try cutting it twice. I find I can get a better cut with a so so blade if I cut it twice.

Here are the cut files I used ...

Oh boy April 05, 2017 07:00

Happy hump day friends! We are halfway through the week and I am here today to share this adorable layout of my toothless little boy. For months, Edward has asking why he hasn't lost any teeth while his friends have and I had no real good answer for him, other than his time will come.

Well, that time has come and now he is toothless! He finally lost his first tooth, just a month after he turned 7. And he is so proud. LOL

For this layout, I used the String Circle cut file. I've been wanting to try this cut file out for some time now. Awhile ago, I tried cutting it, but this cut file doesn't cut too well with a portrait due to the small lines so I decided to use my sketch pen! A girl can still have fun... right?!

While going through my stash, I came across Jillibean Soup's "Cool as a cucumber" collection. I love how well the colors in this collection goes with the silly photos! The string circle really makes this layout pop. I just love it...

 

I wasn't quite sure where I was going to include my journaling so I decided to add it to the bottom left-side of the layout. I used a roller stamp to make it more interesting.

Thanks for visiting today!


Art is a Treasure April 04, 2017 08:26

Hey hey everybody, it's Cathy!!!  I'm back with another layout to help get your mojo going using Nicole's amazing cutfiles!  So this time around I wanted to do something a little bit more subdued and soft, while still being masculine.  I also wanted to cut my file using patterned paper since I've been doing a lot of cut files with white cardstock.  I cut out the Scribble Circles background file on a sweet mint and white striped patterned paper.  I then backed some of the circles with patterned paper and some I left open.  I used some ephemera from Pretty Little Studio too, which matched perfectly with the colours I was working with!  I love adding vintage touches to a more modern and minimal design.  I really kept the patterns to a minimum and left lots of white space!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

 

 

 

 


Life Is Amazing | Yvette Weber April 03, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone!  It's Yvette and today I have a new layout to share with you using the Floral frames, Beautiful butterflies and Life is amazing cut files.

 

I scrap a photo of myself sitting in the garden, we had just purchase the bench at a local Home Depot and I wanted to give it a test run :)))   

The Hardy Hodgepodge collection from Jillibean Soup was perfect for this page. The beautiful, bright colors were a great match for my photo.  To start, I resized the top Floral frame design to fit my 4x6 picture, and then cut it from patterned paper. I then glued the frame on top of my photo and added foam tape underneath it, to give it some extra dimension!

I knew I wanted to add some butterflies to my layout and the Beautiful butterflies cut file was perfect for this. I cut the butterflies from pattern paper and instead of using the cut file as a whole, I decided to cut it apart and use the butterflies individually. I then arranged the butterflies to make it appear as if they were flying off the page.   

I used some wood veneers and die-cut cardstock from Jillibean Soup to embellish both the butterflies and the frame.  

I added machine stitching across the Life is Amazing cut file which created a great title for my page. 

A few paint splashes and enamel dots finished off my layout.

Thanks for stopping by :) 

  I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick Cut Files! 

 


XOXO | Laureen Wagener April 01, 2017 07:00

Hi friends!
I'm back with a new post to finish up "Spring themed" week ;)

I decided to use the gorgoeus Henna background and back it with my favorite paper from the Oh my Heart collection by Pink Paislee and Paige Evans - Paper 24.

After I had backed it it was way too light to simply be placed on a white background - so I did something super unusual. I used a patterned paper for my background! Whaaaaaat?!
Yes and I super love the way it matches my page.

I simply adhered it with foam squares for added dimension and clustered embellishments from the Oh my Heart collection around my photo.

Now, I hope your weekend will be lovely and filled with crafty fun!

Have a great day,

xo Laureen
