Hello Spring | Erinn Barclay April 18, 2019 07:00
This is a picture from last spring when I was out on a walk with friends. We were so happy to see beautiful flowers blooming and had to get a picture with them.
I decided to use white paper for the cut files, so that they would stand out against the purple background paper and all of the other bright colored embellishments.
The wreath cut file really helped bring the flowers together and connect the layout.
I used the Pink Paislee Whimsical collection by Paige Evans. I added adhesive foam behind the flowers to give them dimension. I added a few enamel dots around the wreath to finish out the layout.
Thanks for stopping by! There are so many great spring and floral cut files in the JustNick store, so make sure to check them all out!

Road to Happiness | Rachel Lowe April 16, 2019 07:00
Hey friends, Rachel here and today I have a layout that is all about Spring and flowers!
I have used the new collection by Pink Paislee Paige Evans Horizon.
I have used two cut files on this layout.
I cut the Floral Spring Ring in a dark coloured paper as I wanted my flowers to contrast.
I used white cardstock measuring 10x10 inches.
Using the release compound path technique I dragged out the petals and then cut. I used an piece of 12x12 paper that had a rainbow of colours which when you are cutting numerous flowers is a perfect way to not have to use many papers.
Once I had filled the flowers within the floral ring I set about creating individual flowers using the Build a Flower 4 cut file. To keep my layout bright and with a spring theme I chose bright coloured papers. I created various sizes and made a total of 12 individual flowers.
Once I had assembled them, I started off with the smaller ones and added these to the centres of the spring ring flowers to create a 3D effect. Once I had done this I then arranged my flowers around an in the ring to create a cascade effect of spring flowers.
I then added my photo and embellished around it. I matted my layout on a bright multi coloured paper, which against the white is a wonderful contrast.
I love how this turned out and it says happy to me!
Building a flower is a great way to add flowers where you get to choose the sizes, and they really are not time consuming.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
Bloom | Marcia Dehn-Nix April 15, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today. I have a fun Spring mixed media layout to share with you. I am in dire need of warmer weather. We got snow dumped on us again a few days ago... it still hasn't melted either. So I decided to create my own sunshine in my scrapbook room on this layout.
I had a lot of fun creating a rainbow mixed media background to coordinate with the papers I used to back the flowers in the beautiful Spring Floral Cluster 3 digital cut file. Isn't this floral cluster amazing!
For my title, I used the new Bloom digital cut file. It was perfect to coordinate with my Spring floral cluster.
There is just something about a mixed media background that makes a cut file pop! Here are the digital cut files I used today...
I hope you are enjoying some warm Spring weather. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week!
Spring Colors | Mari Clarke April 12, 2019 00:00
Hi Friends! Welcome to the JustNick blog today! I am sharing a fun, spring themed layout today using the new Striped Target Background cut file from the shop!
I cut the file at 12x12 using some Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. I set my blade to 9. I really love how my Cameo cuts the files using the heavier paper.
I backed the cut file with a rainbow colored paper from Vicki Boutin's new Color Kaleidoscope collection. My idea was to create the impression of a rainbow, but in a creative way using a different shape.
SPRING | Nathalie DeSousa April 11, 2019 07:00
Nathalie with you today, and it has been a long and cold winter here in Canada,and Spring is slowly showing up. So, instead of waiting around for Spring to finally catch up, i decided to pull a few memories from last year's season to create this page using a few of the beautiful JustNick Studio cut files.
I wanted something really light and airy for this layout, so i started with the Type It Alpha cut file to create the large vertical title. I welded the letters together, and cut them out of white cardstock.
To back the title, i chose to use the negative part of the cut out, and vellum for every other letter. A bit of foam adhesive helps to create the dimension on the letters, and make them stand out.
Once the background was set on the background, i laid the picture in place,and used the new Rolled Flower 1, Rolled Flower 2, and Rolled Flower 3 cut files and papers from the new Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine Spring Fling kit to create the flowers for this page.
I used a ball tool to curl the edges of the flowers a bit, and then used a pencil to help me start the rolling process for this flowers, and then took out the pencil and continue rolling them together. A bit of hot glue at the center of the flower holds the rolled flower together. I added a matching enamel dot to the center of the flower to hide the hot glue.
I glued the flowers around the picture and title of this page, but added a few leaves made from the Stems cut file from white cardstock. A few extra embellishments -all from the SCT Spring Fling kit- complete this page.
I hope this inspires you to jumpstart your Spring documenting. There are so many new cut files in the JustNick Studio shop that will help you bring a bit of Spring to your projects.

LONDON VISIT | Monique Liedtke April 09, 2019 07:00
Hello everyone, it's Monique here today with another project to share. For today's layout I was looking for a cut file with large letters and after browsing through the JustNick store I found the "Striped Alpha" cut file.
Last year when we were on vacation in the UK, we decided to reserve one of our days for a quick visit to London as my boys had never been there before. We had the day of our lives and so this needed to be scrapped!
Here's the page I did:
I used Doodlebug Design's Sweet Summer collection and chose the Punch Plaid sheet to cut the letters from. As soon as I placed the letters on the white background it all looked so colorful. I really love this about Doodlebug's products!
This is the "Striped Alhpa" cut file I used:
I hand cut the photo of my boys posing in front of the Tower Bridge to fit into one of the "O"'s:
All the other letters were decorated using one of more of the Doodlebug die-cuts and stickers:
With a bit of machine stitching and a date stamp my page was finished!
I really love this cut file and know I'll be using it for a few more layouts. Maybe next time I'll weld the letters together.
If you like this page and think you might give it a try too then maybe check the JustNick store to see all the other alpha cut files as well. I think the Marquee Alpha cut file would be perfect for a page like this too!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Sweet | Majken Pullin - Cutting Mixed Media (Tip) April 08, 2019 07:00 1 Comment
Hello JustNick cut file fans! Majken here with you today, and we are celebrating the theme of "spring". I think most of us can agree that when we think of spring, we think of flowers blooming. Today's project of mine uses the Doodle Floral Circle Background cut file, and it's just lovely and spring-y!
I created a mixed media sheet to cut the cut file from, using Distress and Distress Oxide Inks as water colors to match the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection.
Isn't it fun to create mixed media? I love it! And t's always interesting to finish the mixed media part and work with wobbly paper! Well, there are two ways I know to help cardstock layered with mixed media to lay flat. The first is to use Gesso before you start. Layer Gesso on with a paint brush and let dry. Proceed with your mixed media.
The second way, and what I learned from my friend Heather Leopard, is to run your cardstock through a Heidi Swapp Minc machine after it's dry. This works nicely if you don't have Gesso or want to skip that part.
Once my cardstock was dry and flat, I ran it through my Silhouette Cameo to cut the Doodle Floral Circle Background, similar to how I created this layout.
I love the mixture of outline cuts and solid cuts in this beautiful cut file! I opted to leave the outline cuts alone for the most part, but I added some Sugar Glitter Paste to the tops of the solid flowers and used it as glue to sprinkle sequins and beads on top! Take a closer look:
I love the subtle colors layered on top of white cardstock backed by ombre paper. The paste, sequins, and beads add another layer to help showcase sweet photos of my daughter and our first "baby" Tigger (who we miss terribly).
Here's a close look at the cut file:
Visit the JustNick shop today - Nicole has a whole field (see what I did there?) of floral and spring cut files you can use to create your projects and celebrate spring with us.
Thanks for joining us today...happy spring!
In My Easter Bonnet | Marcia Dehn-Nix April 05, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today with some Easter inspiration using some of the new Spring digital cut files available in the store. I love using flower cut files especially on my girly layouts. This one features one of my daughters in her Easter bonnet.
You can never go wrong with a circle design. I applied some gesso and spray mist to my pattern paper to help set off the flowers and Leaf Wreath. To add dimension to the Build A Flower 1 florals, I inked the edges and then bent the petals upwards before assembing them.
I am in love with these airy Spring Florals. Here too I inked the edges as well as the middle of the flowers. Then I added a contrasting button in the middle. So pretty!
Here are the cut files I used today ...
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!
You Make My Heart Happy | Rachel Lowe April 04, 2019 07:00
Hey justnick friends, Rachel here. Today I have a sweet layout of my puppy and yes indeed makes my heart happy!
I have used Pebbles Inc Love Me collection.
I have used this gorgeous Spring Floral Cluster. I cut it in white card and at approximately at 11 inches wide as I wanted it to be my feature.
So I could use different papers/patterns in my flowers, I used the release compound pathway and dragged out the petals and then cut. This is a simple technique that saves a lot of time and paper.
I ensure when I glued down my petals I did not glue the centre stems so I could bend them up to create a 3D effect. I then added smaller die cut flowers to the centres.
I then added some super cute diets from the collection adding them around my floral cluster, adding all with foam tape to continue with the 3D effect. How cute are these sloths!
I added my photo with foam tape as I chose not to mat it, I tucked a die cut heart and tiny flower under my photo. I added machine stitching to my heart and also my title, I love the texture and interest it adds.
To finish off my title I added die cuts under and slightly over it, to frame it and draw your eye to it.
And there you have it one super cute layout featuring this stunning spring floral cluster cut file!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and see you again soon.
Sweet Smile | Erinn Barclay April 02, 2019 07:00
This is a picture of my niece from several years ago and she looks so sweet. Since I don't have children, I don't make as many kid layouts, so this was fun!
I thought it would be neat to have the cut file on the same paper as the background paper. After I cut it, I just matched it up in the same spot. I used adhesive foam to give it dimension and make it stand out.
Since the background was yellow and pink, I decided to stay with that color scheme. I used a couple of Paige Evans's older collections with Pink Paislee for this layout.
I used pink paper for the word "Sweet" from the other cut file and decided to place the title on the bottom of the picture. The font is delicate, so I don't think it takes away from the picture. Plus, it would have gotten lost in the background if I tried to place it anywhere else.
I hope this layout inspires you! Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine + Happiness | Rachel Lowe March 28, 2019 07:00
Hi all Rachel here again to share another layout featuring two gorgeous Justnick Studio cut files!
How amazing is the Broken Butterfly cut file!
I have used MME Well Hello collection to create this layout.
I decided I would use two of the Broken Butterflies on my layout, cutting in black card stock and layering the smaller one slightly over the larger one. I used a large floral paper to back the butterflies wanting it to be bright and bold against the black.
So my photo didn't get lost against the busy patterned paper I used to back my butterflies, I matted it, added a floral bunch, washi tape and a phrase sentiment, so they framed my photo. My photo is also attached with foam tape to add height.
I embellished by adding a die cut bird in between the two butterflies and a flower die cut to the wing of the out butterfly.
I decided to serrate my title, adding Sunshine to the top and + Happiness at the bottom of my page, this balanced my layout.
I added a pretty flower die cut above Sunshine so your eye would be drawn there. I finished off with a splatter of black paint. I love how this layout turned out and the creative possibilities with these butterfly cut files are endless.
Thank you for stopping by today and see you again soon.

Hello Today | Monique Liedtke March 26, 2019 07:00
I love to use background cut files and this beautiful daisy background cut file is one my new favorites! I cut it from a smooth white AC cardstock and backed a few of the flowers with some patterned paper. I love to leave a few of the flowers "open" and a few of them with patterned paper behind them.
Here's the layout I created:
and this is the "Daisy Background" cut file I used:
Here are a few close-ups: except for adhering patterned paper behind some of the flowers I also added either a tiny sticker or an enamel dot to the hearts of the flowers.
I used a photo of "my boys" and I from last year's summer vacation. I really how this turned out and hope you like it too!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you happy crafting!
Spring Cards | Mari Clarke March 25, 2019 00:00
Welcome to the blog today, friends! I am so ready for spring and am sharing some cards that could be used for weddings, graduation, Easter, Mother's Day or almost any occasion!
For each of the cards, I have used some glitter paper to back these beautiful cut files from the shop. The glitter paper just makes the cut file details pop!
For this first card, I used the Spring Bloom Background cut file over the glitter paper card front. I sized the file to just under 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I cut all of the files from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. My blade was set to 9. I did a vellum belly band and then added a floral from the Spring Florals cut file. I cut a small circle from the glitter paper to finish the center of the flower.
For this second card, I used a steel scallop die to cut the glitter paper. I topped my card front with two florals from the Spring Florals cut file and then added the "Bloom" sentiment to the bottom from the Bloom cut file. I finished off with some sparkling clear sequins.
For this third card, I added a panel of glitter paper to my card base, then topped that with the Scallop Floral Background cut file. I added a vellum belly band and then topped my card with this pretty floral from Spring Florals.
I love how these cards turned out; I will leave the images of the files below and they are also linked below each of the images above!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Some People - Bold Title | Majken Pullin March 22, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! Majken here with you on the blog today with another layout about friends, which I scrapbooked about earlier this month. I think one of the least scrapped themes for me (other than about myself) is about my friendships, so I wanted to make sure I am capturing these awesome people in my life when I get the chance.
Let's take a closer peek!
I started by cutting the Some People cut file out using my Cameo from patterned paper (Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Whimsical collection) - I decided to go almost the full 12" length. I aligned it toward the left of my layout, and to give it some additional contrast I trimmed a strip of the striped paper. matted the white cardstock with another patterned paper, and dripped some mists and inks lightly on the white cardstock.
For more texture, I sewed under some of the words in the phrase to emphasize them.
I had two photos to share, so I layered them with the Fall Floral cut files and more patterned paper.
I finished off the photo area with stickers, ephemera, and some journaling.
It's fun to go bold with a title both in size and color! I hope you get some crafty time this weekend so you can head to the JustNick store to get some new cut files you can use to create your own bold title.
Have a great day!
Vroom | Marcia Dehn-Nix March 21, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today. I am hoping it warms up enough here in Minnesota where the kids can be outside again riding their bikes. In the mean time, my Spring fever has me scrapping a photo of my nephew from last Spring. I thought the Tread Background was perfect for this bike riding photo.
To get the tire treads to stand out, I backed the black tire tread design with a grey cardstock. I placed a red patterned paper circle between the layers before gluing them together. I didn't want to cover up too much of that tread design. Then my photo and embellishments went over that circle. I may have gotten a little carried away with the embellishing, lol.
I repeated the circle, adding a few more smaller circles in the opposite corner. Again, I went crazy embellishing the tops of these circles.
For my title, I warped the Vroom from the Planes Trains & Autmobiles cut file. I wanted the word to be larger starting out and get smaller. I thought it would help show movement. Here is how you can warp an object in Silhouette Studio.
Right click on the cut file and select Ungroup. Move the items you are not using off the grid. Select the object to warp and click on the warp icon (last icon on the right). Select a corner edit point and drag it outward. On the opposite end, select a corner edit point and drag it inward. Play around with the edit points until you like how it looks.
I didn't like how the stars looked warped so I trimmed them off. I replaced them with other stars from an ephemera pack. I edged the word with a black marker. This helps it pop as well as gives it a grungy feel.
I love how this turned out.
Check out my YouTube process video for a tutorial on warping an object.
Here are the cut files I used today ...
Thanks so much for stopping by.

One of a Kind | Erinn Barclay March 19, 2019 07:00
This is my favorite picture of my grandpa and I from my wedding day. I wanted to do a floral layout, but still keep it masculine. I felt like the Foliage Background was great for that.
I decided not to cut out the inner parts of the flower because I wanted more color. I cut two sizes and placed the smaller on top. I placed adhesive foam in between the layers and curled up the edges to give it more dimension.
I used the Pinkfresh Studio Everyday Musings collection. There were gold flower stickers with the same shape as the cut file flower. I placed the inner pieces of the stickers on the cut file.
I hope this layout inspires you! There are so many great floral cut files in the JustNick Studio store, so make sure to check them out!
SWEET GIRL | Nathalie DeSousa March 18, 2019 07:00
Nathalie with you today with a new sweet and darling project that uses a few of the JustNick Studio cut files to start a new scrapbook album for a new member of our family.
One of the perks of cut files is that you can mix and match them to create a cut file that is truly one-of-a-kind, so it's the case of the large heart in the background of this page.
To create the large background heart, i used the outline of one of the Patterned Hearts cut file and welded to the Pretty Paisley Floral Background ( i copy a few of this together so that they could fill the heart shape before welding them together). While this cut in my Cameo, i added a bit of mixed media to the background -Vicki Boutin Art Crayons and Prima Pastel Metallic watercolors-
I backed the heart with vellum and some foam adhesive, and set it on top of the mixed media. Then added the picture of my new baby cousin/goddaughter with a few embellishments all from Echo Park's Welcome Baby Girl collection around it.
To create the title for this page, i used the Girl Power cut file, and set the words, "Sweet" and "Girl" 3 times from white cardstock. I glued the die cuts together -so that they resembled chipboard diecuts- and added a coat of shimmer watercolor to each of them. A bit of foam adhesive and glue keeps them in place.
I love how easy this came together by creating my own one-of-a-kind background using the beautiful Just Nick Studio cut files. All the cut files in the store are just the starting point for a new project, so make sure to check all the new designs arriving weekly. AS always let me know if you have questions on how this came together.
Dreamer| Rachel Lowe March 15, 2019 07:00
Hey all Rachel here and today I have a fun layout using three cut files, This is Life, Butterfly and Daisy Background.
I have used the new collection by Dear Lizzy New Day.
I cut a 11x11 inch Daisy background in a bright coloured paper, which had a small pattern on it which helps your background cut files to not look flat and lacking a visual depth. Once adhered to my white base paper I added NUVO crystal drops to the centres of the flowers. Then added 3 die cut flowers to add pops of colour.
I then made three of the butterflies using a muted colour as the base of the butterfly and then a brighter coordinating colour paper for the outer butterfly. Using foam tape down the centre of the outer butterfly I attached to the base to create a 3D effect.
I used two different sized frames but used the same photo, keeping it bright and fun. I added a large die cut butterfly under the Daisy Background cut file to add a contrast.
I created a feature title cluster so it did not get lost against the Daisy Background cut file. I loved the peace signed hand die cut from the collection! I added with foam tape tape, added more crystal drops to the flowers and added my title 'dreamer' using a bright pink to draw your eye to it.
I love how this layout turned out, busy but beautiful with the gorgeous Daisy Background and the new release butterflies are just so cute.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Bloom | Niki Rowland March 14, 2019 07:00
I cut them in different sizes too and then stuck them to my white background with foam pads. I actually backed the circles with white, so that I could overlap them without the other flowers showing through the gaps.
Together | Monique Liedtke March 12, 2019 07:00
Here's the layout I created using the Pretty Little Studio collection XOXO:
and these are the cut files:
Aren't these cut files beautiful?! I cut the "Floral Grouping 1" from both white cardstock and from a piece of patterned paper, the white one slighter larger than the colored one. I placed these on top of each other to create extra depth and added the matted photo on top.
I also cut two flowers from the "Bloom" cut file from patterned paper and some leaves from white cardstock and adhered the flowers on top of the photo in the bottom left corner and in the top right corner. The leaves I slid under the photo also in the top right corner.
And an extra close-up:
I really love how delicate these flowers are and how super easy they cut!
Thank you so much for stopping by, wishing you happy scrapping!
Celebrate Friends | Majken Pullin March 11, 2019 07:00
Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you today as we get closer to welcoming spring. I love background cut files - you can really do a lot with them. On the layout I'm sharing today, I backed some of the flowers in this background with different patterned paper, sewed along the cut file edges, and sewed over the centers to create different textures. Here's the full layout I created to celebrate a dear friendship:
I cut the Crazy Daisy Background from textured white cardstock and first thought I'd overlay it on another piece of white cardstock. Before I committed though, I tested it over a few patterned papers from Pinkfresh Studio, and I loved the way it looked over the dark blue paper with the subtle polka dots.
Before I adhered it though, I first cut various petals from a coordinating 6x6 paper pad to back a few of the flowers.
Once I had the flowers that I wanted filled in, I adhered it over the dark blue paper and sewed along some of the flowers in the cut file. I also sewed circles in the center of a few of the flowers that I didn't put patterned paper behind.
For my title, I used a fun alphabet cut file called Type It Font. To keep the white letters from blending too much with the Crazy Daisy Background cut file, I offset my letters slightly and cut them again using a green patterned paper that I used as a mat for the slightly smaller white letters that I cut.
Alphabet cut files are perfect for titles, and the great thing about them is you can cut them over and over in any paper, color, or size you want. You never run out of a letter either!
I finished the layout with some journaling (in the center of a flower!), buttons, brads, stickers, and ephemera.
Cut files used:
I'm so grateful you stopped by the JustNick blog today, and I hope you're inspired to grab these background and alpha cut files (or two or three other ones!) to create with.
Have a great week!

Hey friends, welcome back to the JustNick Digital Cut File Shop blog!! I have a layout to share with you today using a beautiful floral cut file from the shop! Today I am using the lovely Floral Grouping 1 file.
I created this 12x12 scrapbooking layout using the cut file in two sizes. One was cut slightly larger than the other since I had a plan to layer the floral pieces.
I cut both pieces from Bazzill Marshmallow card stock using a 7 blade setting. I backed the cut files with patterned paper from the Heidi Swapp Color Fresh collection. I have used this collection throughout the layout.
I added some Heidi Swapp foil details to the cut file here and there to match the foil layer behind the photo. I have added foam adhesive to both cut files to add to the layering effect and create more dimension on the layout!
This floral cut file is one of my all time favorites that Nicole has created! It is so soft and pretty...just perfect for the photo I am documenting today! This design is perfect for scrapbooking, card making or so many other projects...just a beauty!
These florals make me hopeful that spring is just around the corner! Be sure to check out all of the beautiful designs in the shop! I have a process video up on YouTube for this layout if you would like to see how I created the project!
Thank you for stopping by today, friends!

SMILE ALWAYS | Nathalie DeSousa March 05, 2019 07:00
Nathalie with you today! The weather here in Toronto is still stuck in winter mode, so, what better than bring some needed spring with a colorful new layout that features a few new cut files from JustNick studio.
For this page, i chose the newly released Spring Florals cut file to cut a few of the images - in graduating sizes - from papers of various Jillibean Soup collections.
While the flowers were being cut, i chose to add a bit of color to the background using Distress Oxides.
Having the flowers in graduating sizes helped with the layering of the die cuts to create the flowers and dimension on them. I chose to add a foam circle in the star shaped flowers so that the 3 layers of die cuts can be distinguished.
The flowers were attached to the background so that they formed a small diagonal line at the top half of the page. I nestled the picture in the center of the line, and added just a few embellishments around the page.
To create the title, a combination of word die cuts were created using the Smile and Love You Eternal cut files from patterned papers from Jillibean collections. These were layered to create a bit of dimension and to make sure they stand out on the page.
I love how easily this page came together with just a few cut files and a bit of mixed media. There are so many beautiful cut files arriving at the Just Nick Studio shop weekly, you want to make sure to check them all. Remember you can always contact me with any questions!
My Mona Lisa Moment | Marcia Dehn-Nix March 04, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today. I am sharing a travel scrapbook layout with you that I created with four different JustNick Studios digital cut files. This layout is about my recent trip to Paris where we visited the Louvre Museum. Who knew Mona Lisa could draw such crowds!
I wanted to use a few travel icons too. I found a geotag and globe in the Around the World cut file. The globe was perfect to layer under my photos to help frame them.
Here are the cut files I used today ...
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Home Sweet Home | Erinn Barclay March 01, 2019 07:00
My husband and I recently bought our first home together. It's a cute little farm house and we fell in love with it the first time we saw it. I'm so happy to have our own place and couldn't wait to document it.
I knew I wanted to use the Home Sweet Home phrase as a large title. I decided to cut it from patterned paper to make it stand out. I backed it with white paper to give it a little more definition from the background paper.
There are a lot of trees in my picture, so I wanted to bring in some greenery. I cut the stems from patterned paper as well. I used the Pinkfresh Studio Everyday Musings collection. The florals from the ephemera pack went beautifully with the stems from the cut file.
I also used one of the houses from the Home Sweet Home cut file. It's so cute! I love all the gold accents in the collection too.
I hoped you enjoyed this layout and it gives you some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!

DREAM BIG | Nathalie DeSousa February 26, 2019 07:00
Nathalie with you today bringing you a new project that came together in just a few minutes. I had a super busy week, and wanted to use my free time on some creative therapy. So i pulled a few cut files from the JustNIck Studio shop and combined them with Vicki Boutin's new collection.
This page was so easy to put together since i used a premade background - Vicki Boutin Mixed Media background paper pad - as a starting point for the page.
First i used the Floral Stripe Background to create the background, I copied the image twice so it will fit the width of the page, and then deleted the top cut line so that the lines will be attached to the sides of the mat when cut.
I used some foam adhesive to attach the cut out to a premade mixed media background from Vicki Boutin's new paper line, and then attached the picture using a few fussy cut images and embellishments from the Color Kaleidoscope collection to create some interest.
I added another cluster at the bottom of the page using a cutout created the Floral Swag 3 and a few embellishments.
For the title, i cut the words using the This is Life cut file from one of the papers form the collection and white cardstock. This were glued together, and then attached to the bottom corner of the page. A few gold splatters completes this layout.
I love how easy this page was to put together in such a small amount of time. Having a premade background sped the process, but combining a few JustNick Studio cutfiles to layer and use as a background made it even easier to complete this page. Rememeber to check all this files and the new ones in the JustNick studio store.
You Have My Whole Entire Heart | Majken Pullin February 25, 2019 07:00
Hello cut file crafters! Majken here with you today, and I'm sharing another love-themed project with you using some fabulous new cut files. I created my previous layout in blues, but today I'm switching back to the more traditional love color: pinks! And I'm using Heidi Swapp's Hawthorne collection because I have all the heart eyes for ombre paper! Who's with me??
I cut my title first using textured white cardstock, sizing the "HEART" to go the length of my layout. I cut the smaller title words using pink paper, but I felt it "melted" into the page, so I cut it again using white cardstock to shadow the pink and help it pop off the page.
Instead of using the inside for the "A" and the "R", I cut a bunch of Hearts 4 out in various sizes and replaced those areas.
I also cut several of the Candy Hearts 2 using white cardstock and matted them with various matching papers so the words would show through nicely. And I matted my photo, tucking a couple of the hearts around it and using a third one in the top left corner.
A few added embellishments....and voila!
Now it's your turn! Go grab these and other love-ly cut files from the JustNick store so you can celebrate your love.
Have a great day!

Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today from snowy Minnesota where we are still digging out from our latest snowstorm... and getting ready for another 4"-8" over the weekend. How fitting that my layout today is a winter one. I really wanted to get this family photo scrapped before spring settled in and we were all sick of winter. (Ok... some of us are already sick of winter!) Check out my layout anyway ...
I used the Snowflake Cluster cut file to ground my photo. The white snowflakes make quite an impact against the dark background.
I wanted to scatter a few more snowflakes onto my page and discovered the Snowflakes 2 cut file has some of the same snowflakes! I cut them out twice, once with white cardstock, then again with vellum. The vellum snowflakes soften my page a bit and I could add a layer of snowflakes over my photo as well.
Along the right side of my layout I arranged a variety of papers and vellum with lots of curvy edges. I wanted you to think blowing snow when you saw it. Here I layered some of the white and vellum snowflakes to create this beauty!
I love how this turned out ... maybe more so because my favorite people are in this photo.
Here are the cut files I used today ...
Thanks so much for stopping by today. If it's snowing where you live, get outside and snap a few photos! There are plenty of winter cut files in the store that are perfect for documenting them.

Hey all Rachel here again. I have a fun layout to share today and although it seems busy using a large cut file in a darker colour ensures it will look fab and visually interesting.
I have used two cut files, the gorgeous Doliy 2 and Love List.
Firstly I cut 9x9 inch Doliy 2 cut file in black. I used two different flowers papers to fill the dolly, the larger floral paper in the centre. I left the scallop edge unfilled. I then foamed taped the paper pieced doliy to the centre of my 10x10 inch white cardstock. I then used another floral paper as my outer page border.
I added a circle of butterflies around the doliy, this adds to the kaleidoscope look which I was aiming for. For my photo I cut the silhouette of my daughter and attached slightly off centre. I then added some small flower embellishments around her again adding to the kaleidoscope effect.
I chose 'sweetheart' as my title from the Love List cut file. I used the off set button to cut an outer 'shadow' and then cut the word in a striped paper. The off set tool is fabulous and I recommend you have a play with it.
To finish off I added a sub title and a peacock just because I love them. I added some black machine stitching to add contrast and texture against the white and florals and last but not least a splatter of black colour mist.
Only Amy Tangerine can do these colours and busy patterns and make them so fabulous.
I love how this layout turned out, busy but beautiful! Thank you for looking and these cut files are in store now.
Heart - Leslie Berner February 20, 2019 07:00
Hi scrappy friends! It's Leslie on the blog today. I used the cut file called My Heart.
I only use the word "Heart" and copied it unto my page 5 times, staggering them and then welding them together. This is what it looked like in my software.I used plain white smooth card stock.
I decided I wanted to do some backing. and backed three of the "Heart" words with patterned paper from the Paige Evans Whimsical collection. I backed the first, third and fifth word.
The rest went pretty quickly, I fussy cut one of the big floral clusters from one of the other patterned papers from the collections and nestled my photo between the cut file and the floral cluster.
Next, I scattered some of the enamel shapes around the layout and added some small chipboard pieces that fit into the little open spaces. Lastly I splattered some black Heidi Swapp color shine in the top right hand corner and added a roughly drawn border around the edge of the layout.
Here are some close ups.
Here is the final layout...

You Are | Mari Clarke February 19, 2019 06:00
Welcome to the blog, friends! I have a layout to share with you today using two new cut files from the JustNick Digital Cut File shop! Here is my project:
I cut the You Are file from some black textured card stock. I knew I wanted to nestle the photo into the area where you see it on the layout, so when I opened the file in my Silhouette software, I sized the file to allow for my 4x3 photo.
I cut the Spiky Flower cut file from some Heidi Swapp patterned paper. I trimmed off the stems and used the blooms as circular embellishments in three areas on the layout! I love how the cut files allow for custom embellishments!
The large You Are file creates the theme and title for the layout! I love the combination of the black and pink! These cut files are perfect!
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! Be sure to hop over to the JustNick Digital Cut File shop to see all of the amazing designs!
Be A Flamingo | Monique Liedtke February 18, 2019 07:00
Hi JustNick friends!!
It's Monique here today sharing another "Valentine's" layout, this time one with my kids in it instead of my hubby. I totally love the new "Heart Background 6" cut file and knew I had to use it. I chose the Heart Day collection from Crate Paper that I bought ages ago and of which I had 90% left (I love it too much to use it, how silly is that?) and an awesome journaling card from Paper Issues.
The new "Heart Background 6" cut file:
Before I used this cut file I copied it 3 times, so I had 4 of it, placed them in a square and welded them together. Then I resized it to fit my 12" x 12" sized background paper. Doesn't it look great?!
I created two clusters on my page: one with the photo in the left bottom corner:
I matted the photo on three different pieces of patterned paper, added a little card with an acrylic heart stapled to it, added a text sticker and a puffy heart sticker and of course a bit of machine stitching:
The other cluster I placed in the top right corner. This cluster consists of the fun flamingo journaling card, two paper clips, an acrylic tag, two die-cut hearts and two puffy hearts. I finished the cluster off with another machine stitched line:
At the top and bottom of the layout I added a strip of light pink washi tape with golden hearts. Love washi tape!
When my page was almost done, I added little golden enamel hearts and glued these randomly in the hearts of the cut file.
After adding a few light pink paint splatters I decided my layout was done! Hope you like it!
Full Heart | Erinn Barclay February 15, 2019 07:00
Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day full of love!! I have a new layout featuring the Heart Background 4 and Love List cut files. My dad had open heart surgery exactly one year ago today. He has recovered very well and I wanted to create this as my "love" layout because he means so much to me. He makes my heart full and now he also has a full heart since it's been fixed.
I decided to use the title "Full Heart" from the cut file and cut it from teal paper. It helped bring out the teals and blues from the other embellishments.
I used red paper for the heart background cut file and backed most of the open hearts with patterned paper. I added adhesive foam to give the layout some dimension.
I mainly used the Crate Paper Main Squeeze collection. I added gold color shine to finish the layout since there was gold in a lot of the embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
LOVE FOREVER | Nathalie DeSousa February 14, 2019 07:00
Hi there and Happy Valentine's Day to you!
Nathalie with you in time to celebrate a whole day dedicated to love and friendship. Today, i wanted to share with you a new layout created with a few Just Nick Studio cut files, and so perfect to celebrate the love of my life.
I used the Lower Case Alpha cut file to create the title of the page. The letters were cut from papers from JIllibean's Garden Harvest collection, and then stitched together to an offset of the letters -created out of white cardstock in the Silhouette software-.
To complete the title work, the word "forever" was also cut from one of the Garden Harvest collection using the Love You Eternal cut file. This was cut three times so that glued together they can create some dimension on the page.
Before the title was laid down on the page, a bit of color was added to the background using VIcki Boutin art crayons and an Echo Park stencil. This makes the title pop from the background.
To complement the page, i fussy cut lots of florals and leaves from papers in the collection, so I chose to cut a few branches using the Stems 5 cut file out of white cardstock, and used them to create the clusters around the page.
i love how this page came together, even when it took a bit of extra time, i call it a labour of love.
Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio shop to check all the cut files used in this project. If you have any questions please contact me, i would love to help you.
Enoy your Valentine's Day!
My Everything | Rachel Lowe February 13, 2019 07:00
Hello my scrappy friends (who LOVE cut files) I have a Valentine themed layout, but I chose a photo of me and my baby boy because love is love right! I have used two cut files on this layout, of course gorgeous Valentine themed cut files.
Firstly I cut the Heart Background cut file in white and kept it a 12x12 cut. I then cut the inner hearts in blue (release compound and move the hearts you want to use). I wanted to add some contrast to break up the white.
I then cut the You Are title sentiment using a striped and multi coloured paper so my title would be visually interesting.
I split my title to the top and then to the bottom of my photo, again for visual interest and to ensure your eye os drawn to the photo. My photo is attached with foam tape to create height on my layout.
Then it was just a matter of embellishing my layout, I think I have added every fav of mine when it comes to embellishments lol, pineapples, lamas, puffy hearts!!!
I love background cut files they really give your layout a wow factor and don't be afraid to use busy papers to cut titles as it adds so much visual interest and stops them from appearing flat.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to add these cut files to your library, they are ones you will use over and over I am sure.
Sweetheart | Marcia Dehn-Nix February 12, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today to share my LOVE layout inspiration with you. There are lots of awesome new cut files in the store and I could not wait to use them ... especially this Candy Heart Background. How cute is that! Perfect for scrapping your Valentine's Day pics. My mixed media background sets those hearts off nicely.
I love creating layers of papers and embellishments on my layouts. I actually used 5 cut files here! Here is a closer look at those fabulous hearts. Can you see the other cut files?
I placed one of the Dainty Doilies behind my photo. Isn't it gorgeous! Doilies are so great for layering! They add a nice feminine touch.
In the lower right hand corner I chose the scripty word 'Sweetheart' from the Love List digital cut file for my layout title. This cut file has lots of title options for your Love layouts. You could even mix and match these words with another cut file to create a totally new title option.
Here are the digital cut files I used today...
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day.
