Enjoy The Moment | Sophie Delorme January 22, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I used two different cut files for this page. The first one is called “Rustic Winter Frame” and the second one, for my title, is called “Enjoy The Moment”.

 

 

 

I decided to enlarge quite a bit and cut the Rustic Winter Frame on white cardstock. I cut out the inner piece of the frame on watercolor paper, added a little bit of mixed media on my background with watercolors and, once dried, stitched the beautiful frame on the page. As you noticed I also backed the fine line around the frame with blue cardstock that matched my color scheme.

 

 

Then, I added dimensional foam to the back of my whole background before adhering it to a beautiful patterned paper from the Pinkfrech Studio collection named “Oh what Fun !”. I love how it brings depth to the frame and direct the attention to my photo.

 

I created a beautiful floral and leaves cluster on the lower left of the frame, where there already is a bunch of leaves from the cut file. I added ephemeras from the Pinkfresh Studio collection and also punched leaves out of colored cardstock.

 

 

I cut the cut file title on green cardstock and did an offset cut on white cardstock. I adhered the two of them together and added some Glossy Accents (from Ranger) on the green cardstock to make it shine.

 

 

Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops here and there around the page and hand wrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !  I hope you do too !

 

Thank you for stopping by today !

 

I will see you very soon !

Valentine Cards | Mari Clarke January 20, 2021 07:00

Hi friends, it's Mari Clarke here with some valentine card inspiration using the Floral Heart, Heart Mandalla and Always You cut files from JustNick!  

I used the Always You file on both of my cards.  I wanted to cut all three files at one time from pink cardstock, so I painted the Always You sentiments with black acrylic paint.

It is super quick to make beautiful cards with these gorgeous cut files.  The Floral Heart cut file has so much detail and cut beautifully on my Silhouette Cameo.  I added it to a die cut and embossed white background on a white A2 card base.

For my second card, I cut the Heart Mandalla to fit my A2 card front.  I added it to a die cut and embossed card panel on the white card base.  I added the Always You file to the top.

Love these cut files!  Make sure you check out the JustNick Shop!

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!

Colorful | Joanna Bandelin January 18, 2021 06:30

Hi friends, Joanna here sharing a sweet scrapbook page of my daughter. I used the Heart Mandalla cut file for my page. I love cutting these mandalas really big so you see all the little details. 
I chose a bright and colorful background so that the cut file stands out with the contrast. I added 3 small 2x3 photos to my page. One on the top left corner, that I added a small cluster around. 
For the other 2 photos I created a cluster with different embellishments and stickers. And finished off with a Colorful title. :) 
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day! 

So Sweet Layout | Triple Layer Fancy Background cut file | Sophie Delorme January 15, 2021 07:00 2 Comments

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie with you today with a new layout featuring the amazing Triple Layer Fancy Background cut file !

 

 

 

I cut it with my cutting machine on light blue, light green and white cardstock and layered the three backgrounds together. As easy as one, two, three !

 

I added adhesive foam behind it and backed the inner wholes with white cardstock, then put everything on a beautiful 12x12 patterned paper from a 2018 Pinkfresh Studios collection named “Holiday Vibes”.

 

 

I could have backed it with a dark cardstock for a more dramatic look, and actually was quite hesitant in my choice…! It really depends on what you are looking for. I finally went for a soft look.

 

I love the beautiful details and dimension that it adds to my page !

 

I used a photo of me and my sweet dog, and used a pocket card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I clustered around my photo some fussy cut elements, chipboard stickers and die cuts from the same collection.

 

 

With such a beautiful background, you surely don’t need a lot more embellishments to add !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

 


Smile | Anna Blades January 14, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today. This week we are creating projects with the new Triple Layer cut files. There are several designs, and they add a cool look to your projects. That’s what I’ve created for today:

 

 

For my layout, I used the Triple Layer Gothic Background. I cut the three layers from yellow, white, and grey cardstock. I glued the three pieces together and put them on top of my background with foam dots to add more dimension.

I chose a striped dot patterned paper for my background and used the leftover cardstock from the cut files to frame it.

Since the background is pretty busy, I didn’t use many elements on my page. I placed a black and white picture of my little daughter in the upper right corner of the page, matted with black cardstock. Then, embellished it with these branches that I cut with a metal die from black cardstock. Also, I put a black label behind the photo.

For my title, I used a large thin alphabet from Felicity Jane Studio, with a puffy sticker with the word “special” on top of it. A very simple design, but I wanted the cut file to be the focal point.

And that’s all for today! These cut files are very fun to use, and I hope you give them a try. Thank you so much for stopping by today and don’t forget to visit the store to find out new cut files every week.

See you soon!


FAMILY IS FOREVER | Nathalie January 13, 2021 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share some inspiration using the new amazing layered digital cut files available at Just Nick Studio.  These new designs have been created so that they bring dimension and interest to your page in an  easy and clean way.    Let me show you what I have created:

 

I used the new TRIPLE LAYER GRAPHIC BACKGROUND to create this layout.  I love graphic designs and this one was just filled with those awesome angles.

 


I used papers from Crate Paper's Fresh Bouquet to create the bottom two layers of the cut out.  I made sure to  choose the darker color for the bottom layer, followed by a lighter tone for the middle layer, and finally white cardstock for the top layer of the die cut.

 


I chose a paper from a DCWV pad, and loved the contrast it created with the die cut.   Since, the dimension of the cut out is lovely, I kept the embellishments around the photo pretty simple ( fussy cut florals from the same collection).

 

To complete the page, I mixed alphas from Pinkfresh Studio with an acetate piece from Fresh Bouquet and then added a small die cut created from white cardstock and the BUTTERFLY cut file.

 


I love how this turned out, and how the triple layered cut file just brings so much interest to the page.  Remember to check all the layered design in the Just Nick shop, you are going to love them!

Look Explore Grow | Majken Pullin January 12, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today as we share the new JustNick Studio triple layer cut files!  They add dimension and layers to any project.  Take a look at my scrapbook layout.

I sewed along the outside edge of all four sides of a piece of white textured cardstock and used Distress Oxide ink to watercolor the edges.

Next, I open the new Triple Layer Gothic Background cut file to cut the three different elements one at a time using white textured cardstock, a green and yellow patterned paper, then blue textured cardstock.  Then I adhered all 3 together and used 3D foam tape to lift the entire background.

I layered foam stickers and a fussycut butterfly on top of the popped up background for even more dimension!

I included my photos along the bottom with one of the foam stickers and another fussycut butterfly.

I print out and cut my journaling strips to put underneath my left two photos.

The triple layers of the cut file add interest to a project very quickly!  Here's a look at the cut file:

Take a look at all the new triple layer cut files to download today!  Share your projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio. 

Have a good day and week!

Beautiful | Mari Clarke January 11, 2021 07:00

Welcome to the JustNick Blog today!  It's Mari Clarke here and today I have a 12x12 layout to share using the Winter Florals and Boho Florals 3 cut files from the JustNick Digital Cut File Shop.

I cut the files from some American Crafts White Precision Cardstock.  I backed the Boho Florals 3 large flower with paper from Crate Paper Marigold 8x6 paper pad.

I used some Bazzil Avalanche cardstock for my base and to that I added some Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink, Stamping with Gina K Prickly Pear and a Studio Light stamp as well as some texture paste through the Oriental Wall stencil from Finnabair and Prima.

I layered my cutfiles in the lower right corner of my photo area.  I also added patterned paper and embellishments from the Marigold collection.  I love how the cut files are so soft and pretty on this layout and accent this adorable photo!

Here is a link to the JustNick Shop where you can find these files and so many more gorgeous designs!

Thank you for stopping by!

This Will Be Our Year || Joanna Bandelin January 5, 2021 06:00

Hi friends, Joanna Bandelin here, I hope you all are having a great start to your New Year. Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page using a large title from the New Year Words cut file set by JustNick.

We all know 2020 was crazy, so with lots of hope and faith, I'm praying this year will be 100% better! So I wanted to pick a title for this page that represented my hope for my family and this one was it.

I cut out the title on pattern paper and used pop dots on the back for dimension. I did some fussy cutting with the flower wreath. I added lots of flower clusters around my page.

I hope you like it and you are inspired to start the new year off right and document those treasured memories. 

 


Happy New Year | Patricia January 4, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!!  Ah, goodbye 2020 and hello 2021, right?!  Even though situations will not magically change, I am holding on to starting fresh and doing what I can to stay positive and especially healthy.  Today, I combine the 1 - 9 Outline Numbers and the Happy Words to documenting our New Year's Eve photo to bring in a fresh new year!

1-9 Outline, JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files

Happy Words, JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files

I cut 2, 2, and 1 from the 1 - 9 Outline from white cardstock vertically to use on the right side, and used the positive cut outs on this left side against a very fresh pattern paper background.

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Keeping with the mindset of a fresh new start, I detail cut bright flowers from pattern paper to frame our New Year's Eve photo.  For my journaling, I used the watercolor paper I used underneath my cut 1 - 9 Outline on the right.

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

This right side, I kept mostly white to help the left pop more with the bright colors.  I used clear acetates in stars and circles for the '0.'  I backed this numbers with cardstock with watercolors.  Some peek through more than others and gives just enough color.  I used two more of the detail cut flowers from pattern paper to bring balance and more pop to this white background.  And the black acrylic 'happy' repeats the 'happy' I have cut from the white cardstock as well.  The 'happy' and the wood veneer numbers are along side the cut out numbers and word.

You can see more of the cut through with this little patch of more concentrated watercoloring.

Love the style of the 1 - 9 Outline numbers!  So many ways to use them.  These are just two along with the word 'happy' from the Happy Words cut file.  Happy and healthy New Year to you all!!

Loving|Alena Grinchuk December 24, 2020 06:00

Hi Justnick friends!!

Alena here with you today! Are you ready for Santa's visit?

Today
I would like to share the new Pages of My December Daily.

 

I used cut file Snowflake 1 again.


I also used cut file Countdown on my pages

 


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

Merry Christmas!


Big numbers my passion!!! | Cristina Sales December 23, 2020 07:00

Hi Justnick friends, Cristina here with a new project to share with you. After so many Christmas pages I decided to make something different using the totally amazing Countdown cut file. The font used to draw this numbers is really awesome and I totally love it so I decided to use the 21th number to make the date in a big size.
I chose a patterned paper in a christmas mood with beautiful red and white stripes, then I added a doily lace and I totally love how it turned out on the red stripes underneath it.
I used stamps and journaling beats and I added some vellum leaves and a butterfly to create movement.
The decorative elements are some wood buttons and red enamel dots to add round elements.
Round elements are a must have on my projects so to complete the date I used a button badge with the name of the month.
To complete my composition I added some drops of goldy shine by Heidi Swapp spread using a watercolor brush.
To add different elements and different materials I made my title using a resine element and I think It's totally amazing.
A clip by Tim Holtz is my final touch.
That's all so thank you for stopping by and see you next time.

Christmas and New Year's Card Ideas | Mari Clarke December 22, 2020 07:00

Hi friends, welcome to the JustNick Blog today! I have some holiday card ideas for you using some beautiful JustNick Cut Files!

For this first slimline card, I used the Modern Trees 3 cut file and the Celebrate cut file.  I sprayed the tree with Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron. I added some patterned paper, stickers, white splatters and twine to finish my card.

For my second card, I created an A2 card using the Celebrate cut file.  I used some gold mist on the inside of the glass to create the look of champagne. I added shimmer spritz to the letters to add some sparkle.  I finished the card with gold splatters and some gold foil vellum!

Here is a link to the JustNick Shop where you can find the Modern Trees 3 and Celebrate cut files!

Sweet Puppy Love by Sophie Delorme December 21, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It's Sophie with you today !

 

Christmas is finally arriving in a few days ! So I thought I'd share a little Christmassy layout with you, using the beautiful Tree Trio 2 cut file.

 

 

 

I started with a dark background using a dark gray Bazzill cardstock as my base and adding splatters of white acrylic paint to mimic snowflakes. 

 

I cut the cut file a few times in different sizes with my cutting machine on white cardstock, and backed each of the trees with patterned papers from the beautiful "Snowflake" collection from Crate Paper. 

 

 

I used two photos of my daughter Sabrina with our dog Fiona cuddling in the kitchen. I backed them with tissue paper and adhesive foam and centered them on my page.

 

I teared big shunks of patterned papers that I put on the bottom of the page, creating little mounts and valleys to ground the trees.

 

 

I also added a white scalloped border with a border punch.

 

I scattered the beautiful trees around the photos.

 

 

I added snowmen and start stickers from the same collection around the trees and in the "sky".

 

 

My title is a mix of different American Crafts Thickers and stickers.

 

Finally, I wrote down my journaling on a Pocket Life card and stamped the date.

 

 

I love the soft feel to the page and the non-traditional Christmas color scheme !

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

I hope that I inspired you to use this beautiful cut file to highlight all your lovely Christmas memories !

 

I wish you a very Merry Christmas and will see you very soon, in 2021 !

The magic of Christmas December 18, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today, sharing a bit of Christmas Magic. For today’s project, I’ve used two amazing cut files that you could find in the shop.

I started with a light grey cardstock for my background and used a rose gold metallic paint to give some shine. I applied it with my finger and I also did some splatters.

In the photo, my girls are looking a giant luminous star, so I decided to use the Star cluster cut file. I cut it from white cardstock and placed it on the left side of the page using foam squares.

On the right side of the page, I placed my title. I used the Magic of Christmas cut file to create it. I stacked my photo between the title.

To embellish the page, I glued some black and white chipboard circles from Felicity Jane Studio.  Then, I ripped the top and the bottom of the page and put a black star patterned paper behind.

Finally, I wrote my journaling with a white gel pen and scattered sequins all over the page to add more shine.

I hope you like the page, and it gives you some inspiration. Have a wonderful week and a Merry Christmas!!

See you in 2021!

 


Christmas Magic | Joanna Bandelin December 17, 2020 06:30 1 Comment

Hello, it's Joanna with you today sharing a sweet Christmastime scrapbook page. I used the beautiful Winter Floral Frame from JustNick.

 

Winter Floral Frame

I wanted the frame to fill up most of my page, so I cut it about 11.5 inches with my Cricut. I dug out some Christmas pattern papers from my stash and I was so happy to find the plaid papers that matched my daughters dresses so well. I love when that happens! 

 I backed the cut file with the traditional Christmas colors. Since the cut file is so pretty and large, it does all the hard work of the design so I didn't need to embellish too much. 

 

I did ad a cute little red truck, little red birds, a flower cluster and my title just under the photos. 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

 


BE MERRY // JASMIN PAAR December 16, 2020 07:00

I used aslo some wood veneers and stamp the title be merry and some stars on my page.

I hope you like my Layout!

See you next year ^^

 

 

 


Peace, Love, Joy | Patricia December 15, 2020 06:00

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  I'm sharing another entry in my Document December album that incorporates two new cut files, the Holly and the Peace Love Joy.  This entry is about our Christmas cards.  My first pages include the actual Christmas card.  These pages will use the same color theme.

I cut the Holly and the Peace Love Joy from black cardstock to really stand out.

The Love Peace Joy go so well with our card, but I felt like having them on the same pages was too much.  I wanted the cut file to stand on its on.  And since this is about getting cards stuffed and mailed, the cut file is the perfect title to this entry in my album.
JustNick Studio, Peace Love Joy, Cut File, Patricia Roebuck, Traveler's Notebook

I added woodgrain strips to the pattern paper to balance all the woodgrain from the card and previous page, then added the acetate stars to ground the cut files.  I grouped the title at the bottom, and then the holly at the top.

The right side is a full photo with embellishments and stamping added to it.  For the journaling, I trimmed a clear piece of acetate, typed my journaling and added a label behind it so it would stand out.

Love the title and holly in black for this entry!

Winter Wonderland | Majken Pullin December 14, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here today to share a winter layout.  I had so much fun creating this project because snow is not something we get to see often here in south Texas!  But occasionally, we get lucky, and 2009 was one such year.  Here's my scrapbook layout:

Winter Wonderland with Snowman 2

I started by cutting out Snowman 2 from white textured cardstock.  I backed him with various patterned paper from Simple Stories Winter Wonderland collection from several years ago...it was perfect for my theme!

On a separate 11.5" x 11.5" piece of textured white cardstock, I lightly brushed an icy blue ink around the edges of where my snowman was going to "sit" on the paper.

And then I adhered my snowman on top of the inky ouline and added buttons to complete his face and body, using the cut file as my template.

Next I layered my photos with patterned paper, stickers, and ephemera and overlapped them with the snowman.

I spinkled some snowflake stickers and enamel dots, added my journaling strips, and then placed the white textured cardstock base over the brown patterned paper so that the left and top edges would show.  I hand-stitched a border using yellow embroidery thread for additional texture, too.

Here is the fun cut file used on today's project:

Snowman 2

Don't be afraid to back cut files in fun ways using patterned paper and more!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a safe and fun holiday season.

JOY | 12 days of Giveaways | Anna Blades December 11, 2020 07:00 4 Comments

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you with a new layout, featuring this beautiful cut file that is FREE today in the shop for the "12 days of Giveaways". Obviously, it's called "Joy".

I went for a very simple design, and I wanted the cut file to be the focal point of my page. I cut it from white cardstock and backed it with vellum.

I placed it almost in the center of the page, below three square photos of my daughters, and raised it with foam squares to add more volume and depth.

For my background a chose a light craft cardstock. I love how it matches the color of the photos and makes the white stand out.

I also used the word love from the Peace Love Joy cut file, which will be available on December 19th.

With a gold alphabet, I wrote "Christmas 2020" above the photos. The ampersand between Joy and love is from the same alphabet.  To embellish my layout I used some die cuts from the "Merry & Bright" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I love how it turned out, simple but festive. I hope it inspires you, and remember that you can get this cut file FREE today.

This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December 11th 2020.

Hi everyone!  Welcome to day 10 of the JustNick 12 Days of Giveaways 2020! It's Mari Clarke here and I will be creating with the gorgeous Frosted Windowpanes 2 cut file!

I started my project by cutting the file from some white textured cardstock.  I then applied some Jana's Jade Magicals to some Vicki Boutin Foundations paper in the area that would be directly behind the cut file.

I added some mylar snowflakes to the center of the cut file snowflakes.  The mylar has gold foil accents; I continued to add more gold to the layout as a complement to the foil.

I added some black and white plaid patterned paper behind my two photos and some simple journaling strips below.  The lower corner has an ephemera snowflake to finish that area off.

Be sure to head over to the blog to get your free cut file today!

It’s Sophie and I am sharing a beautiful layout to inspire you with this amazing FREE cut file available today in the JustNick shop for the “12 days of Givaways” event !  It is named “Winter Wreath”.

 

 

 

I cut it on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed all the pretty tiny leaves and flowers with a beautiful Christmas collection from P13 called “The Four Seasons; Winter”.

 

My background is a patterned paper from the same collection, on which I applied white gesso behing where I planned to put the wreath. I also added plenty of white splatters on the page.

 

 

I carefully added adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page.

 

My photo is from my little girl and me setting up our Christmas village ! I backed the photo with tissue paper, adhesive foam and a patterned paper, and placed it on the inner right side of the wreath. I added a Project Life card next to it for my journaling.

 

 

I fussy cut numerous leaves and berries mainly from the same P13 collection but also from a Mintay Papers Flora Book to embellish the wreath. I created a huge cluster on the right lower corner of my photo and a smaller one on top of the wreath with two beautiful bows, made out of ribbon and cardstock.

 

 

 

I added my title and a few white Nuvo Cristal Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are some close-ups !

12 days of giveaway | Cristina Sales December 8, 2020 07:00 2 Comments

Welcome to 12 Days of Giveaways with Justnick Studio! We have amazing cut files for these 12 days, and I'm sharing a project using the special cut file merry tree.
.
I made a layout totally focused on the Christmas theme because the tree is the perfect item to remember Christmas mood. Unfortunately I can't make it from many years because I have two lovely kittys that love too much trees and when I did it in the past they always broke everything. So I decided don't make it anymore!!!!
I used the Jingle all the way Simple Stories collection to decorate this lovely cut file I cut with a white cardstock using my cameo machine.
I chose this collection because I really love the combo colors and designs.
All the elements inside this collection rreminds me of how I spent the Christmas holidays in the past.
To add a little bit of bright to my page I spread some glitter paste using a stars stencil theme and I totally love how it turned out.
To complete my page I spread some drops of gesso mixed with water all around the tree, and that's it!!!

12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS - Day7 | WINTER FLORAL FRAME| Nathalie December 7, 2020 07:00

Hi there!
Welcome to day 7 of the 12  Days of Giveaways here at JustNick Studio.  We are celebrating the holidays with 12 days of giveaways, that means you can collect 12 free cut files by visiting the blog daily.  Today's free cut file is the  WINTER FLORAL FRAME.
I love the cut file, and it totally helped when documenting my Goddaughters  ( aka my littlest cousins/nieces) Christmas portraits beautifully!
Such a delicate and detailed cut file is perfect for the sweet pictures of my little ones.   Since the florals have lots of small cuts, there was no need to over embellish, instead, I took to piece together a few more pieces of the frame to extend the look of the florals.
I started by flipping the Winter Floral Frame so that the bauble is on the left of the frame and cut it from white cardstock; in addition, I cut a second frame using the original design, too
I cut pieces of the second frame and glued them to the first cut out so that the baubles create a soft diagonal line, and there is more florals on the frame.  I  used some of the extra fussy cut images to bulk up the florals around the frame.
The colors of the papers were dictated by the dresses my little ones are wearing.  The selection come from Crate Paper, Mintopia, Elle's Studio, and 49 & Market (for the background).   I kept the embellishing minimal, since the frame is already adding so much to the page.
I hope you are are inspired by the design of the WINTER FLORAL FRAME cut file to create a project of your own.  Remember: 
This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December 07, 2020 at midnight CST.
No purchase necessary. The correct cut file must be loaded to the cart in order for discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy and Hopeful New Year!

12 Days of Giveaways | Noel TN | Patricia December 6, 2020 06:00 2 Comments

Welcome to 12 Days of Giveaways with Justnick Studio and team!  Nicole has designed amazing cut files for these 12 days, and I'm sharing a a project using the special TN (traveler's notebook) cut file called TN Noel.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I cut the cut file from pattern paper.  I backed the right side with textured white cardstock to keep a soft look and have my patterned branches show up.  For this left side, I had the idea of using this gorgeous evening photo from a recent trip to peek through the 'NOEL'.  I scored and stitched that cut file piece right on top of my photo, and then added embellishments to the front and inside of my photo.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I typed my journaling on a label to adhere to the inside of the cut file.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I can't help but sing Noel while I created this.  The cut file, then the photo, and the song inspired me to use part of the song as a title over the branch part of the cut file using a mix of letters to both stand out and be appropriate for the holidays.  

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

Those branches were calling for ornament stickers.  I used them, enamel dots, die cuts, and woodgrain pattern paper to trim the left side of this cut file to balance more with the left to finish.

Santa's Friends December 4, 2020 06:30 1 Comment

Hi friends, Joanna here, welcome to day 4 of the 12 Days of giveaways!
Today I'm sharing a fun winter page using the Santa's Friends cut file from JustNick. I love the cute images in this set, make sure to grab your freebie today only!

For my project I decided to use the adorable snowman.

The first thing I did was cut out my snowman nice and big. I used some pattern paper and backed him with white cardstock. I used some gesso over my background to dull the pattern down a little bit. 

 

I added some layers behind the photo of my daughter hugging her snowman. Then I made a small cluster of embellishments to the right of the photo. 

 

To finish off I added some pop dots behind the title and the snowman for some dimension. Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget to grab your freebie.

Cut file freebie day 2! - Magic of Christmas December 2, 2020 07:00 7 Comments

Welcome to the 12 days of giveaways! Today, we have a magical cut file for you that is perfect for the holidays!

I decided to print out the PNG version of the file on my laser printer and use that to foil my title on my project.

I love that a cut file isn't just for cutting and a large title like this one is great for foiling!

 

You could totally cut this and pop one of the words over the foil too to add a nice layered effect.

 

I decided to cut the "the" and "of" from black cardstock and mix that in with my foiled title.

Now, who wants this cut file for free!

Head over and load this file into your cart and check out by midnight December 2, 2020 and it's your for free!

Happy - 12 Days of Giveaways | Majken Pullin December 1, 2020 07:00 3 Comments

12 Days of Giveaways

Hello, hello and welcome to December, friends!  Majken here with you today to kick off a very special time of year here at JustNick Studio...12 Days of Giveaways!  Read on to find out how to get a cut file for free!

I created a layout today with the beautiful, new Tree Trio 2.

Happy

The layout is simple but I've added a few extra touches for sparkle and texture.  First I enlarged the Tree Trio 2 trees to my desired size.  I also traced each to create the cut for the back of each. I then cut all 6 pieces out on my Cameo 4 using white textured cardstock.

Next, I created a 9" circle in Silhouette Studio, centered it, and cut it out from a new piece of 12"x12" white textured cardstock.  I used a blending brush to lightly apply Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink around the outside of the circle to create a subtle vignette effect. I put the star patterned paper behind the circle and then sewed along the outside edge of the circle.

To back my trees, I layered holographic dot aqua tulle over the white cardstock back and adhered behind the tree outline using glue dots.

I layered the trees with some fussycut trees and ephemera.

I fussycut some stars and adhered them with puffy stickers and enamel stars on the top of the layout with some phrase ephemera.  It's a simple layout with lots of texture and dimension!  Here's the new Tree Trio 2 cut file:

Borders 2 with Nicole ! November 30, 2020 07:35

Hey there cut file fans! Nicole here today to share a project using our new Borders 2 cut file .

 

I love the variety of options a cut file lime this has so I decided to use it to create a background for my page.

I cut multiple stops from so of the borders and layers them together and added them in a rainbow along the right edge of my page.

i love the pretty layered effect and tilted them on a slight angle to add a little something extra ;) 

 

I added some fussy cut flowers along the edge of my photo in the same colour grouping and a simple black title to finish off the page! I live how this one turned out! 

I hope you will give this page a try and stretch some

borders in your own way!

Hello Autumn, Hello Change | Patricia November 27, 2020 06:00 2 Comments

JustNick Studio, Borders 2, Floral Bundle

Hello Friends!  I'm back again to share a Fall and Thankful inspired project using colors you wouldn't think of for Fall, but are some of my favorites.  I'm using the Borders 2 and Floral Bundle for this project today.

JustNick Studio, Borders 2
JustNick Studio, Floral Bundle

I started by cutting out a few of the looped border and then used the negative piece as a stencil using a red/violet color and peach.  Two of my favorite colors to focus on from Fall.  After my background was created, I used a combination of the same red/violet ink and two shades of blue to get a bold look from the white cardstock I used to cut the Floral Bundle cut file.

JustNick Studio, Borders 2, Floral Bundle

Then I added stamping and embellishments to complement, focusing mostly on the same shades I already used, but then added that 'hello autumn' chipboard piece to give a bolder contrast.

This has been such an interesting year, and I had snapped this selfie of me at Whole Foods one evening, not knowing I was about to put in for a second job there later that week.  I made the photo large to add my typing onto, and then added another foam embellishment to balance with the right side.

JustNick Studio, Borders 2, Floral Bundle

Hope you are inspired to create a Fall/Thankful inspired project with a photo of yourself and documenting about your life right now.


Floral bundle layout | Cristina Sales November 26, 2020 07:00

Hi Justnick Studio friends, Cristina here with a new project made using a new cut file, floral bundle, I totally love. I'm a floral addicted and I have to say all the floral cut file by Justnick catched my heart. 

I like to use white cardstock to cut the files and use patterned papers to make them stand out so again I chose a really beautiful vanilla cocoa wood effect paper and built the decoration with Heidi Swapp embellishments.

To make my page I made layering using die-cuts, vellum stickers and enamel dots using foam double tape to create dimension.

 

That's all so I hope you like my page, thanks for stopping by and see you next time.

 

 

 


Thankful | Joanna Bandelin November 24, 2020 06:30

Hi friends, Joanna here with you today sharing a very fall themed scrapbook page.  Here in the USA we are just a few days away from Thanksgiving and although it's been one crazy year for us all, there is still much to be grateful for. I'm so thankful for my family, so using 3 different cut files from Justnick I created this page to document me and my girls. 
The first thing I did for was cut the Bare Tree cut file nice and big to fill my background. Then, I cut out tons and tons of leaves in different colors. I wanted all the fall feels I could get!
I used the  Grateful cut file for my title. I cut it out about 10 inches and backed it with some pattern paper. I used some pop dots for some dimension and layered it right on top of the tree.
I used the Sights of Fall cut file for my pumpkins. I got rid of the lines so that it cut out as a solid. I tucked those in behind all the piles of leaves. I found that cute little raccoon from the Cozy Days collection by Simple Stories and had to sneak him in by the pumpkins. 
Scattering all the leaves around the page makes this page look like fall, which it exactly what I wanted. I hope it inspires you.

Creating Cards With Cut Files | Mari Clarke November 23, 2020 07:00

Hi friends, welcome to the JustNick blog today!  It's Mari here and today I am sharing some card making inspiration using some beautiful fall cut files from the JustNick Digital Cut File Shop!

To create this first card, I cut the Basic Leaves Outline cut file from some white American Crafts textured cardstock.  I placed the leaves in my Splat Box and sprayed them with Dina Wakley Marine Gloss Spray.  Once dry, I splattered the leaves with gold mist. I adhered the leaves with foam adhesive to my base.

The second card was created with the Fall Leaf Swag 2  and Hello Autumn cut files.  I sprayed the leaves with Distress Oxide Spray and the sentiment with Night Gloss Spray.  Both cards are finished with Honey Bee Stamps Heart cover plate and Sugar Pea Designs Postage Stamp die.

I used Gina K cardstock for the card bases and a die cut piece from Simple Stories Cozy Days for the card on the left.  Adding gold splatters adds some sparkle. I love how these turned out! Using cut files to create cards is so quick and simple!  

Be sure to check out these amazing designs in the JustNick Cut File Shop!  Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!

Thankful // Jasmin Paar November 20, 2020 00:00

Hi friends! Jasmin here with a Layout using two autumnal cut files for you today.

First I choose the word thankful from the GATEFUL file and packed it with a rainbow colored patterned paper. 
I have used the same paper to cut the leaves from the BASIC LEAVES file. 
Then I printed my qote and made a pocket out of a piece of vellum. 
Finally, I embellishment my layout with some bits and pieces from the Maggie Holmes Collection. 
I hope you like it! 
Have a wonderful weekend! 

Memories Together | Sophie Delorme November 19, 2020 07:00

Hello friends !

 

It' Sophie with you today with a beautiful fall layout to share !

 

 

I used the gorgeous "Fall Leaf Swag 2" cut file recently released on the JustNick store, and the "Fall Leaves Outline" cut file as well:

 

 

 

I started my page by using a craft 12x12 cardstock as my base, applied white gesso in the centre and some Shimmerz paints to create a soft mixed media look. 

 

I also added white splatters with acrylic paint. 

 

I cut the cut files on white cardstock with my cutting machine. I backed each leaf with patterned papers from the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio fall collection called "Days of Splendor". As you might notice, I also used the inner pieces of some leaves, sticked them down on patterned paper and cut around them. 

 

I arranged the cut files around my photo in a diagonal line. I have added adhesive foam to the cut files before adhering them to the page. 

 

My photo is a family photo taken a few weeks ago on a beautiful fall sunny morning nearby where I live.The fall colors all around us were just magical !

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo as well.

 

Then, I created a few floral and leaf clusters with embellishments from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection around the photo and on the upper left of the page, and stitched that beautiful tab "Family Time" on the top of the page.

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and stamped the date, and that's a wrap up !!

 

 

These autumnal cut files are so versatile ! They can go for girly or boyish layouts and lead you easily to create your design. 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Thankful for you | Anna Blades November 18, 2020 07:00

Hi Just Nick Friends!

Anna here with you today. I’ve created this thankful layout using a picture of my husband and my two daughters. The colors of the photo didn’t match my layout, so I decided to print it in black and white.

First, I made some mixed media on a watercolor sheet with Lindy’s magicals, using peachy and gold tones. Also, I made some splatters with gold Color Shine mist. Finally, I made a very soft stamping with a background stamp, that’s also thank themed.

Then, I cut the Thankful cut file from white cardstock. I glued the outline piece flat on top of the background. The inner pieces have some texture because I embossed them with my Big Shot. I used foam squares to rise up all the letters and give dimension to the title. To finish the title, I added the words “for you” with this script black alphabet thickers.

With brown cardstock I cut some leaves using the Leaf Swag cut file and placed them around my photo. I think they give an autumnal look to the page.

Finally, to embellish the page, I stamped some butterflies with gold ink on vellum and added gold puffy hearts and a couple of die cuts.

I hope you like this page and give you some inspiration. Don’t forget to check out the Just Nick studio shop every week to find new designs!

See you soon!


Beautiful Life|Alena Grinchuk November 17, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

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

I created this layout using the leafy swag 2 cut file.

The background of the layout was combined from Pinkfresh Studio patterned papers. 

I also added embellishments of the fall palette.

I love how white leaves look on this watercolor paper. 

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

Grateful Grateful Grateful | Majken Pullin November 16, 2020 07:00

Hello cut file fans!  Majken here today to kick off the fall/thankful theme we will be focused on for the 2nd half of November.  My scrapbook layout today focuses on a larger photo of my husband and daughter - I'm so grateful for them!  Here is my layout:

I divided the layout so the bottom portion was about 60% with a patterned paper from Pink Paislee.

I wanted to have a repeating title and found the word "grateful" in two cut files: Grateful and Card Sentiments 4.  I liked them because one is a solid and one is an outline that I used to back with matching patterned papers.  And I used enamel letters to create the 3rd one on the top:

I used 3D foam tape to pop up the middle "grateful" for additional dimension.

The titles in the larger bottom section create the foundation for the larger 5" x 7" photo.  I created a dividing border between the top and bottom portions with a strip of patterned paper and pink rick rack.

I included a couple of journaling strips next to the middle "grateful".  I framed the photo with floral ephemera and stickers.

Here are the cut files used on today's project:

Card Sentiments 4

Grateful

Remember to come back and see more fall and grateful themed projects this week and next.  Have a great week!

Watercolor background and leaf cut file | Cristina Sales November 13, 2020 07:00

Hello friends, the weekend is about to arrive and mine will be spent scrapping a lot  and yours?
Today I have a new page to show you. I made a watercolor layout using the lovely leafy swag 2 cut file.
 

I used Vicki Boutin's markers and watercolors and mixed them together with a flat brush. I also used a stencil with a lot of words and I spread a modeling paste on it.

Once everything was dry I made my composition using the cut file cut on a very stiff white paper because I loved the effect of the color under these beautiful leaves.

 To give some lightness I chose some die-cuts and a button, a frame by heidi swapp and finally the title which is a dienamix die cut. 

I really like the effect had at the end and with these beautiful cut files it takes very few other elements to create small details and get a nice effect to your composition.

That's all, I hope you like my page and you can get inspirations by it.
See you next time.

 

 

 

 

 


A Blue Sky Day | Patricia November 12, 2020 06:00

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  I was so inspired by the Floral Frame 2 to use it in the Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbooking Insert I'm using today.  

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

I cut the cut file from white cardstock as is without changing the size.  But once it was cut, I turned the design and carefully cut in half trimming around the flowers to make a clean cut.  

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

I backed all of the same flowers the same as well as the leaves, leaving the smaller flowers as is.  Adhering both of my sides to each side of page gave me a great place to add my title and journaling on the left.

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

And my photo on the right.

I am a little partial to blue and green, so I love how this came out concentrating on my favorite colors as well as going perfectly with my title and story!

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

Hope this inspires you to use this frame as is to cut it out, but then use it in a different on your next project!


HELLO FALL | Nathalie DeSousa November 11, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share a new layout that is all about our glorious Fall mornings.    I love Autumn, especially all the fallen leaves, and what better time to explore the outdoors than early in the morning.  So, I set to document a recent snapshot of one of my daily walks using JustNick cut files.

 

 

There are so many beautiful new cut files in the shop, that  it was so easy to create this page, starting with a splash of mixed media

 

 

While the backgound dried, I used my electronic Die cutting machine to cut the new Fall Leaf Swag 2 twice from white cardstock.   In addition, I used the  Fall Leaves Outline to cut smaller leaves.

 

 

 

 

I used Amy Tangerine's Late Afternoon collection to back all the die cuts. These were attached with a bit of foam adhesive to the background, just to bring dimension and movement to the page.

 

 

With so much color and detail on the background, I just added a simple title, and a few extra stickers around the leaf piles and picture.

 

I hope this inspire you to visit the Just Nick studio shop to check all the  new designs Nicole is adding evey week
XO,
