Favorite Season // Jasmin Paar October 16, 2021 07:00

Hi friends, Jasmin here with a page in my October daily using the PRETTY PUMPKIN cut file. 

I cut the file out of patterned paper and packed the pumpkin with transparent paper. 

I placed it on a sheet acetate and decorated it with stickers and two labels to add my date.

It's an easy idea to add a page to your album.

I hope you like it.

See you next time.

 


Thankful For You | Nicole Kerr October 15, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! Nicole here and today I'm creating a layout using the gorgeous new Rustic Ring 2 cut file. As soon as I saw this cut file, I knew it needed paired with the new Jen Hadfield Peaceful Heart and Paige Evans Bungalow Lane collections! here a look at my completed layout and the file:

I just love these clusters of leaves and florals!  I backed them using papers from Peaceful Heart, Including backing the circle with the pink and white check. I auditioned many papers from both lines and felt the blue fit the best. It was a nice bold, yet soft, contrast. I felt like the project was missing more of the pink, which then lead me to placing the blue piece on a diagonal. To make this feel more "home" feel, I added stamped stitch lines around the edges of my papers.

I then added a cluster of elements on the bottom left. I loved the "how lucky" and house ephemera. I felt they were perfect for this spread documenting my thanks for my son and how positive his attitude and mindset always is! I felt this space also needed more florals, so I cut several from a sheet of patterned paper.

I then added my photo to the right cluster and brought in the same elements of florals, die cuts and a banner.

Lastly, I added my title around the outside of the frame and two small paint and sequin splashes on the top right and bottom middle of the spread. I felt those two areas needed a little something without taking the focus away from the rest of the layout.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Click HERE to head on over to the shop and grab this file! Be sure to tag us on social media so we can see how you're using the files!

 


Thankful For You Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez October 14, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Background 6 cut file.
 
I started my layout by painting a white cardstock with different tones of blue to make an ombre effect. Then, I used it to cut my cut file.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I didn’t want the cut file to be a square, so I teared it and glued it to a white cardstock. Then, I glued my photo on top and added flowers from the Bungalow Lane collection.
 
For my title I used a piece of ephemera and the thickers of the collection. To finish my layout, I added thickers, chipboard, epoxy and puffy stickers.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

GRATEFUL 2021 | Nathalie October 13, 2021 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share a bit of inspiration using JustNick Studio's newest cut files.   We just celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, and that means that it is time for my gratitude journal ( 30 days ) to begin.  Let me show you how I have started my 6x8 album

 

I love the new MANDALLA LEAF 1  cut file, and just wanted it for the title page of  my album.   I simply cut it twice from white cardstock, glued the pieces together, and then backed the leaf with shimmer vellum.

 

 

 

 

I chose a very "Fall-ish" paper for the background ( Vicki Boutin mixed media paper pad), and glued the leaf in the center of the page.   I an using the GRATEFUL cut file to create my title.  I cut it from gold mirror paper and white cardstock.  I glued the gold die cut on the page, then glued the negative white cardstock letters on top of the gold die cut.   Just love how this turned out.   

 

 

I have already started working on my album, and my day 1 is always about my faith.   So, I decided to go for a hybrid approach for this page.  I am using the BOHO FLORALS 3 cut file  to create the background of my page.   This time, I am using the cut file as a digital stamp.

 

 

 

Using my Silhouette software, I placed the images on the canvas, then added my color choice, and sent it to the printer.  A bit of stamping complete my page!

 

 

I love the versatility of JustNick Studio's cut files, and how they can work for all types of paper crafting projects and/or documenting formats. Remember to check them out !

Grateful | Patricia Roebuck October 12, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  So much to be thankful for this past year, and Thanksgiving time is definitely a way to express that with the beautiful Fall cut files JustNick has.  I used the Leaves 6 cut from white cardstock, backed with solid cardstock.  And then used the Give Thanks cut file digitally to create a background that I printed onto my pattern paper.  I use Photoshop Elements to change the color of it, make it smaller, and create the background.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

I created a circular cluster of the leaves, then added in my photos printed into circles to fit right in with the design.  I stapled the white cardstock cut leaves to the solid colored cardstock for a unique look and added texture.

Before I adhered anything down, I penciled where my journaling would go, and sent through my typewriter.  Finished with beautiful Fall embellishments.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

These leaves are gorgeous!  Use them as I did and maybe give creating a digital background a try if you are able to.  So many ways you can use JustNick files other than cutting them!


Thankful | Becki Adams October 11, 2021 08:00

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!! Hello, Becki here, to share with you a layout that I created using the Thankful cut file. 

This is such a fun, easy cut file to play with and it makes the PERFECT  large title. Instead of creating a traditional Thanksgiving layout with turkey and all the trimmings, I chose to create a gratitude layout. 

This cut file is cut out of white cardstock about 10.5 inches tall. I backed the cut file with patterned paper from the Bungalow Lane collection. 

On each side of the cut file, I adhered a 3x4 photo and a few embellishments. The journaling is on a tag tucked behind the photo in the upper right corner.

I'm so happy with how this project came together! If you'd like to see how this project came together, you can find a full process video HERE

I can't wait to see what you create with the Thankful cut file. Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends. 


Awesome Boy | Sheena Rowlands October 9, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with my latest 12x12 layout featuring a really great cut file from Just Nick studio. When I saw this cut file in the shop I knew exactly the photo I would use with it.

Awesome Boy.

I wanted to use the All Boy cut file to make a statement title to compliment this statement photo of my Grand Pup looking really cool!

I resized the words to fit down the length of the layout and split the word awesome into 2 halves. I cut them and an arrow, all from white cardstock and backed them with Cocoa Vanilla Studio - Legendary collection patterned papers.

After attaching the A4 photo to the background patterned paper, the words were adhered overlapping the photo.

To finish the layout needed very little embellishment so I added a scattering of stars and some word stickers.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


HIKING MEMORIES by SOPHIE DELORME October 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this new layout to share!

 

 

I used the “Delightful Doily” cut file quite new in the JustNick Studio store, the “Happy Words” cut file along with the Pinkfresh Studio collection “A Day of Splendor”.

 

 

 

I cut three Doilies on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed each of them with different patterned papers. I also created big paper brads with a tool from my stash from Imaginisce and put them in the center of two of the doilies.

 

 

I arranged the cut files in a horizontal row and put my black and white photo, a bit crooked, on the left side of my 12x12 layout, overlapping two of the doilies.

 

I used letter stickers for my title and the word “Memories” from the cut file “Happy Words” which was released a few months ago.

 

 

I did an offset cut and cut in on velum. I mounted the word on adhesive foam before placing it on top of my photo.

 

Then, I decorated along the doilies line and around the photo with different die cuts and frames, all coming from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling directly on the page and stamped the date.

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! Doilies can be used in so many ways! They can also be used as stencils with modeling paste of ink blending. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!

This is 7th Grade | Majken Pullin October 7, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout using a new cut file called "Rosette Background". I also decided to create an 8 1/2" x 11" layout for this project to capture my son's first day of 7th grade.  Let's take a look!

I opened the Rosette Background cut file in my Silhouette Studio software and resized it to 10.5" x 10.5" and then sent it to cut on my Cameo with navy blue cardstock.  I punched 2" circles using a punch and then backed each large circle with those punches, trimming slightly if I didn't adhere it exactly behind the circle.

Originally I was going to use the full background, but I also wanted to use those large leaves from the Bungalow Lane collection, so I trimmed a wide strip of the background to use as a pattern along the right edge.

Next, I trimmed one of the cut apart 3x4 cards to put next to the photo of my son. And then I layered the leaves underneath to ground the photo and card, using 3D foam tape to pop up several leaves for dimension.

I used Thickers for the title, along with a navy alpha sticker set for the "This is" part.

I put a little embellishment cluster in the top right corner, but I really like the white space after that, so I left some of that white space to balance the layout.

Here is the cut file I used today:

You don't have to use the cut file as it is given - instead you can modify it using software or even a trimmer once it's already cut out!  Your imagination is the limit.  Join us on Instagram for more inspiration, and share your projects with us using #justnickstudio.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - enjoy the rest of your week! 


Fall | Yvette Weber October 6, 2021 07:00

 

Hello friends!  Yvette here with a Fall-themed layout using the beautiful new 'Leafy Fall' cut file and the 'Leaves 5' cut file.

 

 Here's what I created....

 

 

 

 I started by cutting both of the cut files out of white cardstock. For the 'Leafy Fall' cut file I used patterned papers from Pinkfresh Days of Splendor collection to back some of the opening. I wanted a grungy look for the 'Leaves 5' cut file, so I simply added some watercolor paint in black and brown to each of the leaves. 

 

 

 I adhered the 'Leafy Fall' cut file down (which works great as a title for my page) with foam tape to give it dimension and layered my photo with a few pieces of patterned papers from the Days of Splendor collection. 

 

 

 I used the 'Leaves 5' with some of Pinkfresh Days of Splendor embellishments to create clusters around my title.

 

 

 

 I arrange several chipboard fairs down the left side of my photo also from the Days of Splendor collection.

 

  To complete my layout I added some stamping and framed my page using the Oh So Delightful pattern paper, by cutting out the inside section from it. 

  I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!

 

Thanks for stopping by :) xx 

 

 

 

 

 


Pretty Fall Cards | Mari Clarke October 5, 2021 06:00

Hi friends, I have two cards to share today using some gorgeous files from JustNick Cut File Store!

I cut the Fall Leaves Outine and Fall Leaves files from white cardstock.  For the base of my cards, I added Monsoon Alcohol Ink and Gold Alloy Alcohol Ink from Ranger to some Yupo paper.  

I added the inky background to a white card base.  I adhered that to a teal A2 card base. I added an oval mat for the sentiment and a PinkFresh Studio sentiment. But the real game changer is the gorgeous, delicate leaves that perfectly finish off the cards.

I love adding cut files to my card projects!  Be sure to check out these beautiful designs and many more in the JustNick Shop!

Thank you for joining me today on the blog!

Fall Layout | Karlla Dauer October 4, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick Friends,
I'm so happy to share a new layout with you. 
Have you already prepared the house for the arrival of autumn?
I love using cut files as titles. They give me the possibility to take advantage of the various prints in the collections.
For this project, I used the beautiful "Leafy Fall". To make it stand out, I just cut out the separate letters, sewed each one and glued them with foam tape to give relief.
I love being able to play with a lot of overlays, and cut files allow me to do that.
To add more elements to the project, I opted for the beautiful "Leaves 6". I made a mix with very autumn colors of ink pads. I thought the result was so amazing, and it brought more emphasis to the photos.
I used in this layout the "Welcome Autumn Collection" - Carta Bella.
To finish the project, I made a watercolor splash.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
I hope that this inspires you to create,
xx Karlla.

Happy Together by Valeska Guimaraes October 2, 2021 07:00

 

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here again sharing another autumn layout with you.

I used the beautiful Rustic Ring cut file for this layout with the gorgeous These Days collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I cut the cut file on a white cardstock and I put it on the center of my page.

In my Studio program, I calculated the measure of my ring and cut a circle a little bit smaller in a pastel orange paper and then I put a black and white leaves paper under the circle.

I placed my rustic ring with 3D foam stickers to give it some dimension.

Then I added my photos on the right and die cuts in the middle of my circle and around the ring. Then I splashed some white acrylic paint to make everything softener. 

This cut file is so beautiful and gave my layout the perfect touch.

Check out the new cut files on the store!

Thank you for stopping by the blog and I hope you enjoyed it.

 


Fall | Patricia Roebuck October 1, 2021 06:00

Happy Fall to those living in the Northern Hemisphere!  I'm using the new Leafy Fall cut file in my Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Insert.  I decided two things first:  to use non-traditional Fall colors and to cut the file as is but trim it to stack.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see right there next to the 'A' where I trimmed this cut file.  I love it stacked like this on the left side.  I just added stamping, die cuts, and detail cutting around it.  I used a vibrant shade of violet cardstock and backed with mostly soft pattern papers.  To add a little more pop and the traditional 'fall,' I backed the leaves with a gold pattern paper.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I continued the detail cutting of pattern paper on the right side and incorporated a large photo under it.  I adhered the detail cut to vellum, added stamping and chipboard.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see the photo peek through the vellum on top and you can lift it to see the full photo.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

This is such a great time to create, and I hope you grab this Leafy Fall cut file for your next project.  Please share if you do and tag @justnickstudio.


Autunm vibes - Valeska Guimaraes September 29, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today sharing a new layout with you. I'm so happy it's autumn and we can already feel the fresh air and the leaves falling. It's one of my favorite season for sure!

For this project, I used the new Leaf Cluster 3 cut file to be the most important point of my layout and some leaves from Latte Love cut file which I added too.

I chose the beautiful Fall Market collection from Echo Park Papers.

To make my cut file even more highlighted, I cut it on a white cardstock and I decided to back it with vellum paper and place it in the center of my drawing.

All my elements came around and my photos on the center too.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and don't forget to check the new release and many others beautiful cut files on the JustNick store.

 

 


Fall by Becki Adams September 28, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends and fans, Becki here, to share with you a layout that I created using the Fall cut file and the butterflies 4 cut file.

This is such a fun, fall project with nontraditional colors.

 

I cut the "fall" cut file out of white cardstock and backed it with liquid glue and patterned paper. I used a strong liquid adhesive and adhered the cut file to the background with foam adhesive. 

To embellish the layout, I cut three butterflies from white cardstock. In the center of each butterfly I added a line of liquid glue and adhered them to scraps of patterned paper. Then, I fussy cut around each butterfly. By adding liquid glue to the center of the butterflies but not the wings, I was able to give them lots of dimension by carefully pulling the wings away from the patterned paper. 

I love how this project came together. I cannot wait to see what you create with the Fall and butterflies 4 cut files. Happy crafting!!


Blessed & Grateful | Nicole Kerr September 27, 2021 06:30

Hello JustNick friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout using the new Leaf Cluster 3. This beautiful cluster makes for a powerful impact on any layout or project. Here's a look at the file:
And this is how I used it on my layout:
I love the bold statement this makes.  For my layout, I flipped it horizontally so the top orange leaf would point to the top left of the page where I added additional embellishments.  This helps to keep the eye moving around the page. 
I used some of my favorite retired October Afternoon papers to back the cut file as well as for the background paper and small embellishments.  I used a fall Simple Stories pack of foam stickers for my title and a few other embellishments.
Since I used a bold pattern for the back ground, I used a shimmery gold paint to add splatters to give if more dimension and add another color to help break up the pattern.
Lastly, I added a few bits to the left of the photo and at the top of the page to add balance. I absolutely adore the "snuggle up" die cut and how perfectly it works with the photo of my son.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope you've been inspired!
Stop by the JustNick shop for this new release along with the many others!

Floral Cluster Layout | Karlla Dauer September 24, 2021 07:00

Hello Everyone,
I'm so happy to share a new layout with you. 
Autumn will start here, and I'm already looking forward to it.
I LOVE everything about this season.
For this layout I used the beautiful cut file "Floral Cluster"
from the new collection.
I made several overlaps with the edges torn and stitched for the background.
I love this effect and it leaves the layout with a lot of detail.
I used the "Welcome Autumn" collection - Carta Bella for this project.
I cut the file on the white cardstock and left it empty to give a beautiful effect. There are a lot of cut files that look beautiful without lining,
and I think this one goes perfectly that way.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
I hope that this inspires you to create,
xx Karlla.

Happy | Yvette Weber September 23, 2021 07:00

 

Hello friends! I'm back with you today, to share a new layout for JustNick Studio. I fell in love with the new 'Leaf Border' cut file and couldn't resist using it to document this fun selfies that I took of my son and I, just before he left to see his friends! 

 

 

I started my layout off by cutting the 'Leaf Border' on white cardstock and backing it with patterned paper. Next, I chose a few pieces of pattern paper from Pinkfresh Studio 'The Best Day' collection, and cut then into strips in variety widths and lengths. Machine stitching was also added to each of the paper strips.

  

 Before gluing the paper strips and cut file down, I created a fun and colorful background with watercolor paint splatters and loved the end results. 

 

  I used both patterned paper and white tissue paper to create some layers behind my photo.

  Embellish with a few fussy cut leaf sprigs, a flower die-cut, as well as a few cardstock stickers from the 'The Best Day' collection.

 

  

 Lastly, I added a few leaves from the 'Latte Love' cut file, cut from white cardstock and then placed those around my layout.

 

I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!

You are my Happy Place by Sophie Delorme September 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this autumnal layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful “Fantastic Fall Leaves” cut file for this page, along with the Felicity Jane “Julia” collection.

 

 

I created a mixed media background by applying watercolors in the shades of pink, yellow and green to match the color scheme of the collection.

 

I let it dry completely.

 

In the meantime, I cut many leaves from the cut file on white cardstock. I machine stitched in the center of many leaves with different colors of thread. I bent the edges and arranged them in clusters around my black and white photo.

 

 

I fussy cut a few florals from a patterned paper and placed them amongst the leaves. I made sure to adhere only the center of the leaves and flowers to create a lot of dimension.

 

 

I placed my title on the top left side of the photo. I handwrote my journaling on a pocket card and added a beautiful gingham tag next to it.

 

 

Finally, I added plenty of beautiful green crystal gems from Pinkfresh Studio as the finishing touch!

 

I took a ton of close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! I used the cut file as if I had numerous die cut embellishments! Simple but adorable!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today !

 

Thank you for stopping by, I will see you again soon !

 

Sophie xx

Love This Place | Sheena Rowlands September 21, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring a great background cut file from Just Nick Studio.

Love This Place.

Recently we got to spend an afternoon in the gardens of Buckingham Palace and I wanted to document our visit. The Everyday Words background cut file jumped out at me as it incorporated everything I thought about our visit.

Before cutting this cut file I used the off set feature to draw around each of the words on this background in black pen.

Using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio - These Days collection, I mounted the cut file over a patterned paper using foam to add dimension. I measured the gaps on the cut file and over the word YOU so I could print 5 small photos to fit over the cut file.

The layout was finished off with flowers, butterflies, stickers and leaves adding a little embellishment to the whole page.

I hope you feel inspired to check out this cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x

 

 


Definitely Not Perfect Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez September 20, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Floral Pieces cut file. I also used the Rosette Background cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I painted my background using the Rosette Background cut file as a stencil.
 
While my layout dried, I fussy cut some flowers. Once my background dried, I glued my photo, the flowers and the Floral Pieces cut file.
 
For my title I used one of the exclusive mixed die cuts from Hip Kit Club. To finish my layout I added stickers and adhesive crystals.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

You Are.... | Yvette Weber September 18, 2021 07:00

 

 

Hello friends! It's Yvette with you today, and I have another layout to share. For this layout, I used the awesome Radiating Background as well as the You Are... phrase cut files from the JustNick shop.

 

 

 

 

 

Today, I am documenting this photo of my son, which were taken on his Birthday last year. 

 

 I started by cutting the Radiating Background cut file out of white cardstock, and then backed it using the Color Wheel patterned paper from Vicki Boutin Color Study collection. Next, I added machine stitching to the Radiating cut file, and knowing that I wanted to use the You Are...cut file as my title, I adhered it off-center. I then added the excess that were trimmed off in the bottom left corner.

  

  The You Are....cut file was cut from white cardstock and then colored in, using ink pads in shades of black and brown.  

  My photo was backed with some white tissue paper and adhered to the center of the Radiating Background cut file.

  

  

  To finish my page I added die-cut pieces and foam stickers in and around my photo and title. 

 I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop! 

 

 Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Hello Friends!  I have been digging through my cards and found I need some specific for sympathy.  I am also in love with Slimline Cards, and the Floral Cluster 7 works as is on my card.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards
After trimming the card base, I used a Slimline card die to create a white cardstock panel, and then I used a smaller Slimline card die to cut out another panel using pattern paper.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

On both of the cards, I backed only the flowers, and on one I did the leaves as well.  To make the sentiment stand out more on the top card, I used black cardstock and embossed in gold.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

For the bottom card, I used white cardstock and gold embossing.  I left the branches as is on both because it adds a nice neutral layer, keeping the flowers and the sentiment as the focus.  Hope you give this a try on your Slimline Cards!


Blessed | Mari Clarke September 16, 2021 06:00

Hi friends, it's Mari here!  I have a 12x12 scrapbooking layout for you today using the beautiful Leaf Border cut file from the JustNick Cut File Store!

I cut the design from white cardstock and placed it horizontally on the lower third of some white cardstock as my base.

I added some Distress Oxide Inks to my paper that coordinate with the colors from the Peaceful Heart collection from American Crafts. I added two strips of patterned paper above the cut file.

I added patterned paper to my photo mat and a 4x3 cut apart to the right of the photo.  I added die cuts to the left, right and below the photo.  I finished with splatters of white paint.

I just love this cut file so much!  Be sure to check it out in the store!

Thank you for stopping by the blog!

COFFEE | Nathalie DeSousa September 15, 2021 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share a bit of inspiration using a few of JustNick Studio's beautiful cut file designs.   I love how cut files are so versatile, and how they can help you tell a story with color and design.   Here is a new entry of my gratitude journal, and of course one of my favorite things in the world, COFFEE

 

 

Did I mentioned, I love coffee!!  And since Nicole has just designed the new  LATTE LOVE cut file, well it was just a perfect match for this layout.

 

 

 

  I cut about 4 of the mugs from white cardstock, and backed them with vellum (for the foam),and papers from Obed Marshall's Fantastico collection.

 

 

 

 

Once I had my coffee mugs set on my notebook. I used the MARQUEE ALPHA 2 cut file to cut the word, "Coffee", from white cardstock. The letters were backed with a paper from the same collection, and placed on the layout.  Since there is quite a bit of color in the page, I kept the rest of the layout very simple.

 

 

I love how this turned out!  Remember to check JustNick Studio shop for new cutfiles. You will love them!

Sweet | Majken Pullin September 14, 2021 07:00

Hello papercrafting friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout about my sweet kitty, Oreo.  I must say, I take far too many photos of this adorable kitty.  He has so many facial expressions and moods.  Let's look at the layout.

Here is Oreo in "bread mode" on my son's bed.  I have all the heart eyes for this sweet kitty!  I began by sizing the floral and leaves from Simple Floral 1 in several sizes in Silhouette Studio, then cutting them from white textured cardstock.  Next, I backed the flowers with colorful patterned paper and the leaves with a green patterned paper. 

I trimmed white textured cardstock to 8" x 10" and spattered some blue watercolor to let it dry.  Once dry, I distressed the edges and matted with an aqua cardstock and sewed along the edges.

I used the flowers mainly as the base for my photo.

And I used the ephemera for my title and to add interest.

For the main base of the layout, I used dark blue cardstock, which I spattered with watered down white acrylic paint. 

And I put two additional florals and leaves on the top left corner.

Here is the Simple Floral 1 cut file I used on today's project!

Thank you for stopping by the JustNick Studio blog today.  Don't forget to follow us on Instagram, too!  We love to see projects you create with JustNick cut files using #justnickstudio tag.

Have a great week!

Focus on me | Valeska Guimaraes September 13, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends,

Valeska here today sharing a new layout with you using one of the released cut files from JustNick Studio.

I used the Shutterbug 2 as the most important part of my layout. I chose papers from Jen Hadfield's Reaching Out collection.

I used 5 different patterned papers in this layout. Four of them to cut out the cameras, I placed them on a white and stitched cardstock. As a base of all of it, I used another patterned paper.

Also I stitched my white cardstock in the center, making a cross and 4 separated spaces on my layout, which used to make different spaces, with cameras and embellishments.

One of the cameras, I made a shaker with lens. I used some 3d foam sticker to give it high and glued acetate on the middle and then the sequins. I really like how it came out.

Every space with the cameras has something special and all of the cut outs were glued with 3d foam sticker.

In the last camera, I took off the lens cut out and placed a photo which was cut with a circle metal die.

I hope you enjoyed this and got inspired to use this cut file and play with these cameras in different sizes and patterned papers. You can also use Shutterbug 1  if you want to use more cameras in your project.

Have a beautiful week and don't forget to see our teams  beautiful projects on Instagram.

See you soon.

Love You the Most by Sophie Delorme September 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Leaf Wreaths” and “Build a Wreath”, duplicated and cut them on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I used a Felicity Jane Kit named “June” for this page.

 

I started by applying some Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical powder on a thick white cardstock to create a mixed media background in soft peach and orange tones.

 

I cut a big rectangle of patterned paper and turned up the upper edge so that we can see the reverse side and its beautiful pink floral pattern, and made a zig zag stitch along with a checkered strip of patterned paper to adhere everything on the background.

 

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo and placed it on the right side of the page.

 

I cut the Leaf Wreaths in a few pieces and mixed them with the other foliage to created two beautiful clusters on both sides of my photo. I only adhered their base so that it creates movement and dimension to the page.

 

 

I mixed the clusters with a few floral embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection.

 

I also created a bouquet on the upper left side of the layout with a few leaves that I had left, and tied them with a beautiful bow made out of a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

My title is also from a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

 

Finally, I created another cluster of embellishments with a journaling card, some tags, a heart and flowers to handwrite my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am very happy with the result! These beautiful leaves add so much to the page! And cutting them on a white cardstock doesn’t make the page too busy and highlights the photo beautifully!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you in some way today,

 

Thank you for stopping by!

 

Sophie xx

Simple Florals Layout | Nicole Kerr September 9, 2021 19:30

Hello JustNick friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout using the new Simple Floral 1 cut files that was just released! This gorgeous file has three whimsical florals and three different style of leaves.
This cutfiles works beautifully with the new Bella Blvd. You Are My Sunshine Collection!  They have the same, bold yet whimsical vibes and pair PERFECTLY!
I used multiples of these florals and leaves in various sizes to make a large impact on my 12x12 layout.
Using the traditional backing technique, I used solid, polka dot papers to add large pops of color on my page. With the busy paper on the background, it gives a good visual break.
I added various layers of foam behind each of the flowers to add depth.  On the largest of the flowers, I used the curve of it to add part of my title.
I then added different chipboard and puffy stickers over the page to add different textures.  I finished my spread with some black paint splatters and my journaling, which I placed on adhesive labels.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
If you love this cutfile, stop over and pick it up HERE today!
It's a must have in any cutfile stash!

Read To Me | Becki Adams September 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends, Becki here to share a layout with you that I created using the Latice Circle Background cut file.

I've had this cut file on my "must use" list for a little while. I couldn't resist using it on this cute layout about my nieces and nephew reading a book together. 

I backed this cut file with patterned paper from a 6x6 paper pad. I only backed the long skinny pieces of the cut file with patterned paper.
It's really hard to tell in the photos but after backing the cut file with patterned paper, I backed the entire circle with vellum. By adding the vellum circle, it softens the background patterned paper. 
I didn't want to overshadow this beautiful cut file with embellishments so I kept the embellishments to a minimum. There's a simple floral cluster at the top left corner of the page and the bottom right side of the cut file. 
I also kept the title small title to keep the focus on the gorgeous cut file. The journaling is written on a tag and tucked behind the photo. 
I love how this layout came together with the Latice Circle Background cut file. I cannot wait to see what you create with this beautiful cut file. Happy scrapping! 

Simple Floral Layout | Karlla Dauer September 7, 2021 07:00

Hello Everyone,
I'm so happy to share a new layout with you. 
I love working with cut file of flowers in my layouts.
What about this new "Simple Floral" cut file? It's just beautiful
I created a central arrangement for this project along with the photo in various dimensions with the foam tape.
For the background of the layout, I made several overlays with papers from the "A Slice of Summer" collection, Echo Park.
I like to cut the cut files white and line them with the most colorful papers.
I love this effect and I think it highlights the cut more.
The flowers created a beautiful effect on the photo.
Another beautiful idea to create with this cut, is to make a super garland.
I'm sure it will be amazing.
I added a few more embellishments, and I loved how the project turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
I hope that this inspires you to create
xx Karlla.

Enjoy The Moment | Sheena Rowlands September 6, 2021 07:00

Hi Everyone x

Sheena here again sharing with you a new 12x12 layout featuring 2 of the wonderful Just Nick Studio cut files.

Enjoy Every Moment.

I used the Floral Screen cut file which I turned in the Silhouette software to enable me to cut it as a triangle in white cardstock.

I backed this cut file with variegated patterned papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection. I adhered it to my background paper using foam pads for dimension.

My photos were added over the point of the cut file & fussy cut flowers tucked around them.

My title is also a Just Nick Studio cut file, Enjoy the Moment.

This was cut from more of the ombre patterned paper, then mounted on an offset cut from white cardstock. This was adhered over the flowers before adding white splatters to the page.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


So Sweet | Mari Clarke September 4, 2021 07:00

Hi friends, it's Mari here; I have a 12x12 layout to share today using the beautiful Floral Cluster 5 Design from the JustNick Cut File Store!

I cut the file from white cardstock and backed it with patterned paper from the Crate Paper Marigold collection. I love how the cut file creates a stunning anchor piece for the photo on the layout!

The photo mat area is just tucked in to the curve of the cut file design.  Layers of flower die cuts and a butterfly are added to the left and lower right of the photo.

The machine stitching and splatters add some texture and interest to the layout as well.  

Be sure to check out all of the gorgeous cut files in the shop!

Have a wonderful day!

As soon as I saw the new Boho Borders 1, I had to use them.  I used white cardstock to cut them out, and then used mostly solid or simple pattern papers to back them.  Trimmed them to fit my page.

I also used the new Floral Cluster 5 to layer over it.  I cut that from white cardstock as well, and then used grey paper to pack it.  These colors set the palette for my project, so I repeated those colors with a grid on the left including more photos and hidden journaling.

These cut files were perfect for the topic of my project being all women from my work.  Keeping with the white cardstock and simple patterns to back the pieces really pulled both pages together while keeping focus on the photos.

Happy | Majken Pullin September 2, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout using a new cut file called "Cathedral Circle" (link coming soon!), and I used three sizes of the cut file as templates to ink soft pink around a sheet of white textured 12x12 cardstock.  Let's take a look at the full layout first.

I love the pinks in this collection with the dark blue/gray, and I decided to align my ink to my shirt as well.

First, I created three sizes of the Cathedral Circle cut file in Silhouette Studio and cut them out of white textured cardstock.  Then I randomly placed them on my 12x12 white cardstock and softly inked around each, overlapping occasionally.

Once the ink was dry, I spattered a little bit of dark blue mixed with black on the top right and bottom left.  I trimmed my white cardstock slightly, and then distressed three of the edges, adhering it to the blue patterned paper base.

For the main section of my photo area, I layered tags and ephemera as my base.

And I put different ribbon and fabric on some of the tags.

I even tucked the smaller cut file at the top of the photo.  And then I used some ephemera and sequins to add further interest.

Here is the new cut file:

Cathedral Circle

I'm so glad you could join us on the JustNick Studio blog today!  Have a great rest of your week.

Majken


So Happy Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez September 1, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 For this layout I used the Boho Borders 1 cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I cut the cut file, for this I used different papers from the Pinkfresh Studio collection, The Best Day. Then I painted my background in matching colors.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut file and make layers with the journaling bits from the collection, then glued my photo on top.
 
For my title I used one of the ephemera pieces. To finish my layout I added more ephemera, puffy stickers, cardstock stickers, chipboard flair and enamel dots.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

Sweet child o'mine by Valeska Guimaraes August 30, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new layout using a lot of new awesome cut files from JustNick store.

I used the Retro Screen for the background, and for the title I used Upper Case Funky Alpha and Lower Case Funky Alpha. The collection I used is Legendary from Cocoa Vanilla Studios, and I also used some acrylic embellishments from Thata Scrapbook & Papelaria, a brand from Brazil.

For this project, I made some experiment. I cut the retro screen cut file out of  gray cardstock and I used the rest of the background cut paper as a stencil on my yellow patterned paper and white acrylic paint to make like a shadow under my cut file on gray paper. I did the same with the title.

For my title, I used the alphabets to create my words. First, I cut the words out of a patterned paper, then I made a outline cut with gray cardstock. Glued both and I place it with 3D foam stickers to give some popped effect.

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments because I really wanted to focus on my cut files.

Hope you enjoyed it and get inspired to experiment new techniques in your projects. There are so many beautiful possibilities to use cut files.

Check out the new releases in the JustNick store.

Thank you for stopping by.

Beautiful Friends by Sophie Delorme August 27, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a sweet layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Script Alpha” and “Labels 3” that were released a few weeks ago.

 

 

 

I cut the frames in a few different sizes on white cardstock with my cutting machine and carefully stitched on each frame with white thread.

 

I used a collection from Felicity Jane called “Ginny” for this page.

 

I used a soft pink cardstock for my background and added a few splatters of white acrylinc paint on it. I cut the upper and bottom part of the cardstock and placed it on a patterned paper. I made a zigzag stitch on the top junction of the papers.

 

I added different patterned papers in 3 of the frames, my photo in the bigger one, my journaling printed on velum in the lower frame and created a simple shaker with the smaller frame right next to my title. I popped every frame except the velum one with adhesive foam.

 

 

 

For my title, I used the Script Alpha cut file and created the word “friends” and did an offset cut that I cut on velum for a beautiful and soft look. I also added adhesive foam to the word to make it stand out.

 

 

I stamped the world “Beautiful” directly on my background, nested between the letters of “Friends”, with black ink.

 

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments from the sale collection.

 

I LOVE the soft and sweet look of this layout. I hope you do too !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These frames have so many possibilities ! You can use them for your photos but also, like I did here, for your journaling, to include patterned papers or even shaker elements to your design!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today ! Thank you for stopping by !

 

Sophie xx

 


Good Times by Becki Adams August 26, 2021 08:00

Hello JustNick friends! Becki here to share a layout with you that I created using the Good Times and Labels 1 cut files.

These cut files are just perfect for documenting my daughter flying by herself for the first time. I cut both sets of cut files out of white cardstock. I cut the tickets at a couple of different sizes so that I could stagger them across the top to make a fun border.

The large bold title is across the bottom of the photos. I chose two 3x4 photos of my daughter at the airport and on the plane. The journaling is on a tag tucked behind the photo o the left.

I had so much fun creating this layout with the cut files from the Just Nick store and the Safe Travels collection from Simple Stories. I can't wait to see what you're creating with your cut files! Happy crafting, my friends!


Summer | Yvette Weber August 25, 2021 07:00

 

Hello JustNick friends!

It's Yvette back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the awesome 'Graphic Screen' cut file.  I had the perfect photo in mine when I saw the 'Graphic Screen' cut file, and decided to keep the photo in-color which allowed me to create a bright and colorful page.

 

   

  

I first cut the 'Graphic Screen' cut file from white cardstock. Then I created an offset in Silhouette, and cut this out of patterned paper, using the Hip Kit Club July kit.  Next, I added some foam tape to the back of the 'Graphic Screen' cut file, cut from the white cardstock before adhering it to the offset and love the added dimension this created. 

 

 

  The 'Graphic Screen' cut file was then adhered to my background on an angle.

  

 Once my photo was in place I began layering the beautiful floral from HKC Build a Bloom pack down the right side, along with few die-cut phrases. I also added a few pieces of fussy cut greenery amounts the flowers.

 

A puffy sticker was used to create a title for my layout, and then embellish.

 

 

 I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!  

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

 

 

 


Bloom | Sheena Rowlands August 24, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing a new 12x12 layout with you featuring 2 more of the Just Nick Studio fabulous cut files.

Bloom.

 

I used the Pretty Wreath cut file  which I cut twice from white cardstock as I wanted it to overhang each side of my layout.

Once I had decided on the placement of the Pretty Wreaths, using my distress inks and finger daubers I lightly inked onto plain white cardstock where the flowers and leaves would be. This was very therapeutic to do as I wasn't after any neat edges.

The cut file was adhered over the ink with foam pads to give dimension. I then embellished inside both halves of the wreath using mainly Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real collection.

My title is from the Bloom cut file set, which I cut in white cardstock then inked to coordinate and stand out from the layout.

I finished the layout with a few enamel dots added to the little flowers.

 I hope you feel inspired to check out this cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


Popit Pup Layout | Nicole Kerr August 23, 2021 07:19

Hello crafty friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout for all of our pet lovers out there!
There has been a cutfile in the shop that I have been eyeing and the idea finally came to light! Today I'm sharing a mixed media layout featuring the In The Doghouse cutfile and the new Lower Case Funky Alpha cutfile!
I began with the mixed media portion of my layout. I gessoed the background with clear gesso as a prep. Once dry, I used a paw print stencil I had to add 3 dimensional paw prints to the back ground  If you don't have a stencil already, you can easily make your own with this cutfile! I let that sit and dry completely because the next step was to add the color.  I add some colored mists and then spray some water so the color would run and puddle around the paw prints. I added a few layers of grey, silver and brown, letting each dry in between the next layer of color. once all areas of color were dry, I added splatters.
To accent those areas of mixed media, I used the cutfile to create coordinating paw prints. For the papers and embellishments for this layout, I used the Bella Blvd. Cooper collection. This paper matched my splatters almost perfectly!
I then used other elements in the cutfile to create a dog house and bones, cutting those from different pattern papers. I created a cute little scene with diecuts from the collection and two photos of our family pup, Odie, who was playing with my son and is huge popit!
Lastly, I curled the edges of my layout, added a few staples and bones to accent it, and adhered my title using the second cutfile. I welded my letters together before cutting it so it was easier to place.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope you've been inspired!

Create Yourself Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez August 21, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Graphic Screen cut file.
 
I started my layout by painting the background. While my background dried, I fussy cut some flowers from the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut file on top of the mixed media, then I glued my photo and the flowers I had fussy cut.
 
For my title I used one of the ephemera pieces from the collection. To finish my layout, I added chipboard and puffy stickers.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

Cards With Cut Files | Mari Clarke August 20, 2021 07:00

Hi friends, it's Mari here for JustNick!  I have two projects to share using several new cut files from the JustNick Store.

I used the Stained Glass circle file for my first card.  I cut the design at 4x4 from white cardstock.  I backed the design with paper from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Lemon Twist.  I adhered this piece onto a piece of white cardstock blended with Salvaged Patina Oxide Ink.

I embellished this card with die cuts from Lemon Twist and splattered with white and gold mist.

I cut the Retro Screen file from white cardstock and then sprayed with Turquoise Gloss Spray from Dina Wakley. I ink blended with Salvaged Patina Oxide on white cardstock and then die cut with a Newton's New Postage Stamp die.  I added the cut file with foam adhesive.  I created the sentiment base with a cut file from the Labels 3 design.  I embellished with die cuts from Lemon Twist.  Again, I splattered with white and gold.

Be sure to check out all of the designs in the JustNick Store!

Have a wonderful day!

xxMari


Oh Happy Day Layout | Karlla Dauer August 19, 2021 07:00

Hello Friends,
I'm so happy to share my new layout with you.
"Mirrored Floral" is that cut file that gives you many possibilities to create.
For this project, I created a big frame with the cut file on both edges.
I LOVED how it looked and highlighted the layout.
To highlight my projects, I use foam tape.
I don't care about height, I love being able to look at every detail.
I thought the combination of this cut file with the "Floral No4" collection from Echo Park was perfect.
This and other beautiful cut files you can find at the "Just Nick" store.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.

I hope that this inspires you to create,

Karlla.
