Thanks Dad! - Cathy Martin June 20, 2017 05:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back creating a masculine themed layout! Fathers Day was just a few days ago and I was really happy to get some fantastic photos of daddy with the kiddos! I had been in a scrap slump, but after Sunday I had renewed energy to go and get some of those photos on a layout!
One of my favourite types of cutfile in the JustNick shop are the ones that are lots of shapes attached together. They are perfect for backing with patterned paper! I found one that I thought was fun and whimsical and would work well with my idea. I'm a sucker for circular patterns so this one worked out great! Usually I cut them using white card stock, but unfortunately I am completely out! (I know, how does that even happen right?) So I decided to use a light yellow patterned paper. Needless to say after my Silhouette was done cutting I turned the cut file over, and ended up using the other side instead! You can check out my Youtube video to see what I'm talking about and see how my idea evolved!
Have an awesome scrappy day everyone and don't forget to grab a cut file while you're here!
Happy Summer - Cat Martin April 21, 2017 06:00
Hello hello hello! It's Cat here back with another layout! I am so happy and excited with how this layout turned out so I hope you like it too!. I used the Radiate Cut File and cut it out from a polka dot patterned paper. I then backed it with several different types of paper, including papers that originally came from some old K & Company Smash Books that I never even came close to completing! I kept the embellishments and the background paper simple to really show off the photo and the cut file. My picture perfectly fit in the circle in the centre. The Radiate Cut File is perfect for emphasizing one picture and pretty much would fit any theme! I know for many of us who scrapbook the men and boys in our lives we have a difficult time but that's what I love about having the opportunity to create for JustNick, so I can showcase different ways to use her files and hopefully help those who are not sure exactly how to scrap for our boys! I will also have a process video up on my YouTube channel if you want to see how I put it all together, including all of my struggles!

Hello hello hello it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! I don't know about you but even though it's still bitterly cold and gloomy in my region of the world I can't help but long for the beautiful colours of spring! For my layout today I was inspired by all the fun and colourful scraps that I have in my stash. Some are relatively new and some are from years ago, but either way I loved combining them together to make this fun image! I used the Rosette Background 2, and originally I was using it as intended, as flowers, but once I was all done backing it I really loved how much it looked like wonky bubbles, so I decided to document my daughter's bubble blowing adventure last spring. Backing the cut file with multiple papers was a wee bit time consuming, but I just love the end result! Thanks so much for stopping by and if you go to my Youtube channel you can check out how I made my layout!

She's A Hoot! October 29, 2016 07:00
Hey everybody, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout! This time I'm focusing on Halloween, and I don't know about any of you, but sometimes traditional Halloween icons and colours don't really match what I'm doing. For my daughter's second Halloween she was a cute pink owl. When it came time to scrap the picture I knew I wanted to go in a different direction, but that doesn't mean I can't use an awesome cut file to emphasize my theme! I picked the lovely feather background and cut it from white cardstock. I backed my cutfile with some Pink Paislee Fancy Free paper and then backed the entire thing on some polka dot paper. Since I had such a busy background I decided to keep my layering and embellishing to a minimum. I used a white doily behind the pictures to add a little bit of visual interest and I splatters some bright pink colour shine to top it off! I love the simple sweetness of this layout, the femininity and softness of it compliments the photos perfectly, and the feather background creates such an interesting look. So remember, when you're scrapping your Halloween photos don't just stop at the Halloween cutfiles, there are lots that you can easily work into whatever theme you are going with!
Girl of Autumn - Stuck?! Sketches Team Up September 24, 2016 07:00
Hello hello hello everyone! It's Cathy and I'm back with another layout to share with you! This time I'm getting ready for my favourite season, and what better way to get in the mood for Fall than to scrap about it! I used 2 cut files from Just Nick this time. I used her Floral Wreaths cut file as well as her new Leaves 2 cut file! I just love the look of the stark white leaves and wreath against the wood grain of the back ground paper. The leaves would look amazing backed with beautiful patterned paper as well but for this layout I love them on their own. I tend to be a scrapper who only scraps one or two photos per layout so I altered the sketch a bit to suit the picture that I wanted to use. I also changed the title position, since I decided to go with such large chipboard letters! Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to the Stuck?!Sketches blog, because if you play along with the sketch you have a change to win a prize from Just Nick!
P.S. Don't forget to take a look and be sure to take a peek at my process video for this layout!
Fancy Pants Designs Week! May 25, 2016 07:00 1 Comment
Nicole here today to share with you a page I made for our team up with the fantastic folks from Fancy Pants Designs!
I used the new Life is Beautiful collection for my page, along with a couple different cut files from the store.
I started by cutting the Butterfly Background from a simple black & white dot paper from the collection and then cut some smaller butterflies from different papers in the 6x6 paper pad in the same collection. I added some pop dots behind the wings of the smaller butterflies and stitched the two together.
I also diecut a border strip from the Scallop Edge Strips set and then a title and embellishments from the Life Is Beautiful collection from Fancy Pants (a new favorite of mine)
Cut files used:
Thanks for stopping by our blog today! Now, go head over to the Fancy Pants Designs blog HERE - I have another project up over there using some NEW Fancy Pants products and more of our cut files!
Smile November 21, 2015 07:00
I began my layout by cutting several leaves on my Silhouette Cameo using the Leaves Cut File with the Echo Park The Story Of Fall 6X6 Paper Pad. I especially like the idea that I can arrange four 6X6 papers on my cutting mat and cut them all at once. The papers are double sided so there are lots of different patterns and colors.
For the title, I used the word "smile" from the Capture This Cut File Set, an older cut file in the Just Nick Shop, and cut it out on some gold foil paper.
After the leaves were cut, I arranged them in a square on the outer edge of the white card stock background and then carefully machine stitched around the outside edge to fasten them. I also like to bends the leaves up so it gives more dimension.
Finally, I embellished the layout with some sequins, enamel dots and a flair button.
The free download is available until November 30, 2015 and after that it can be purchased. You can download it here.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the free download. Don't forget to share your creations with us using any of the Just Nick cut files by tagging us at @justnickstudio on Instagram or on the Facebook page here.
