Sweet | Majken Pullin September 14, 2021 07:00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a great week!

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

Hello JustNick friends,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See you soon.


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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

My title is also from a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

 

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

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

Thank you for stopping by!

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

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

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

Hi Everyone x

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

Enjoy Every Moment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next time x


Happy | Majken Pullin September 2, 2021 07:00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is the new cut file:

Cathedral Circle

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

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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

Sophie xx

 


You Are Enough Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez August 12, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Waved Circle and Build A Flower 3 cut files.
 
I start my layout by painting the Waved Circle cut file in rainbow colors. I also paint the flowers.
To build my layout, I glued the Waved Circle cut file and my photo, for this I used adhesive foam to create dimension, then I glued the flowers.
 
To finish my layout I added Ephemera, Puffy Stickers, Cardstock Stickers and Enamel Dots from the Keeping It Real collection from Pinkfresh Studio.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

Live in the Moment by Sophie Delorme August 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Live in the Moment” and “Summer Icons”.

 

 

 

The collection used to create my page is “Summer Farmhouse” from Simple Stories.

 

I cut the “Live in the Moment” title on white cardstock and then did an offset cut and cut it on patterned paper. I added adhesive foam behind the title for more dimension.

 

 

I used the beautiful flowers, clouds and beach umbrella from the Summer Icons that I backed with patterned papers as well. I arranged them around my black and white photo, adding dimensional foam on the back of a few of them.

 

 

I teared big chunks of patterned papers that I layered on the bottom of the layout to ground everything, and handwrote my journaling with a white gel pen.

 

 

I painted very softly around my photo with watercolors, and added beautiful Pinkfresh Studio crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how the title stands out beautifully on this page !

 

I hope you feel inspired by my creation today, thank you for stopping by !

Relax | Becki Adams August 9, 2021 14:51

Hello JustNick friends! Becki here to share a layout with you that I created using the Cool Treats cut file. 

 

Here in Idaho, USA, we're soaking up the last few days of summer before fall arrives. When I found the cool treats cut file, I knew I had the perfect photo and story to tell to go with these cute little popsicle cut files.

I started by cutting two sets of the cool treats cut file out of white cardstock. 
These popsicles are SO cute!! I backed them with bold patterned papers from the Sunny Days collection by Simple Stories.
After backing the cut files, I adhered them (using foam adhesive on the top and liquid adhesive on the bottom) on both sides of the photo. I clustered three on the left and two on the right. 
Below the photo, I added the title and journaling. This layout was SO fun and SO easy to create! If you haven't purchased and downloaded the Cool Treats cut file, what are you waiting for?!?!? You'll have so much fun documenting all of your summer memories with this fun cut file. 
Happy crafting!!

Live in the Moment - Mixed Media | Majken Pullin August 7, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you this August day to share a mixed media scrapbook layout with a fun title "Live in the Moment", a cut file new last month to the JustNick Studio shop!  Let's take a look:

Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection is made for mixed media, and I decided to get messy.  I painted Gesso on my white textured cardstock, let it dry, and then painted pink texture paste vertically on the background.  Next I stamped polka dots over the top using a similar color of Distress Ink and spritzed some black ink over that.  Finally, I used a stencil and some white texture paste over my background.

While all that dried, I cut the Live in the Moment cut file from green patterned paper thinking my title would bring out the green in the flower stem from my photo.  But I found it to be too much, so I cut it out again using a black patterned paper.  Then I found that one to be too dark.  Ultimately I decided to use the green as a shadow to the other one, and I like the dimension of it!

After that, the rest came together quickly with some ephemera, chipboard pieces, and stickers.

Here is the cut file:

Live in the Moment

Now more than ever, we all deserve to "live in the moment"!  Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Summer | Becki Adams July 30, 2021 12:30

Hello JustNick friends! Becki here to share a layout with you that I created using the Summer Icons cut file.

This cut file is FULL of all the adorable icons AND a title that you'll need for all your summer scrapbooking. 
After cutting all the pieces of the cut file out of white cardstock, I started backing all the pieces with patterned paper. 
After each letter was back with patterned paper, I adhered the title along the bottom of the layout. 
I used the flowers, sun, and clouds as embellishments. Each flower is backed with patterned paper and stitched together with a yellow button in the center. I adhered the flowers to either side of that title. 
Above the photos, I adhered the sun and clouds. I am SO happy with how this layout came together.
This cut file is AMAZING!! It's a must-have for your cut file library. You'll LOVE it!! Thank you for stopping by the JustNick blog. Happy crafting!!

Beach Life I Valeska Guimaraes July 28, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here with you today!

Are you enjoying summer? Are you planning something fun?

Today I am sharing another summery layout with two amazing new cut files: "Beach Life" and "Layered Waves" available in JustNick store.

I cut the "Layered Waves" cut file from a wavy patterned paper and stitched it separately. I used the beautiful June collection from Felicity Jane.

For the title, I cut the "Beach Life" cut file from a striped patterned paper and make it bigger enough to be the same size of my wave.

Everything was glued with dimension in a white cardstock which I made a watercolor background to look like splashes of water.

I glued the three layered waves parts with 3d foam stickers and put some flowers between them.

I put my photos on the top of the page with some embellishment around, tag and puffy stickers with foam tape to create some height.

I really liked how these cut files came out in my layout with these papers. 

Hope you enjoyed it too and are inspired to create beautiful pages. JustNick cut files are so easy to work with and helps you with the design of your project.

Check out these cut files and much more in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

Your Story | Sheena Rowlands July 23, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with you my new 12x12 layout featuring 2 lovely Just Nick Studio cut files.

Your Story.

I really wanted to document this fabulous news for our family and the Heart Cards  are just perfect for this.

I used 3 of the Heart Cards to create a grid format with my 2 photographs. I gave each one a different treatment but kept within the chosen colour scheme for the layout. The first was heavily embellished with patterned papers and chipboard embellishments.

The second was adhered to vellum and mounted on foam to create a shaker pocket full of tiny hearts.

For the last one I added a stitched border to each heart.

To pull the layout together I used the Story cut file to create my title across the centre of the grid design. Using the Y from My to create Your Story which I backed with patterned paper. Most of the papers used are Crate Paper and Maggie Holmes collections, perfect for documenting a love story.

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

Sheena xx

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Hello Summer 2 and Sundial cut files, which will be in the store soon.
 
I cut three of the Sundial cut file and backed with the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin. Then I paint my background and the Hello Summer cut file.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut files and my photo, for this I used adhesive foam to give them dimension. Then I fussy cut some of the circles of the vellum paper from the Color Study collection and glued them. To finish my layout I added die-cuts and stickers.
 I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by.

Summer State of Mind by Sophie Delorme July 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today to share a colorful summer layout !

 

 

I used the Wavy Background cut file as a stencil !

 

 

I cut it and put it on a thick white cardstock. I used yellow, red and blue Distress Oxide inks and applied them with my ink blending tool on the cut file.

 

I removed the cut file, and added a little bit of water on the background to water down  the inks and add colorful splatters.

 

 

I used the beautiful Echo Park Paper “A Slice of Summer” collection for this page.

 

I centered two photos of my little Sabrina on my background, adding tissue papers and adhesive foam behind them.

 

I created a floral cluster on the bottom right corner of the photos, and put a chipboard sticker on the top left.

 

 

I used a piece of patterned paper for my title, that I cut and stitched on a piece of velum and centered it above the two photos.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

As the finishing touch, I scattered beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels around the page.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy of how it turned out ! This was seriously easy to create ! Why don’t you try using a cut file as a stencil for your next layout ?

 

Thank you for stopping by,

 

I will see you again soon !

Volunteering | Becki Adams June 28, 2021 07:00

Hello friends, Becki here to share a layout with you that I created using the beautiful Spring Floral Cluster 3 cut file

I wanted this cut file to make a big impact on this layout so I cut it very large out of white cardstock. I backed the cut file with beautiful tone-on-tone patterned papers. 

For texture and dimension I stitched yellow buttons into the center of each flower. I love the bit of whimsy that the buttons added to the cut file! 

When I adhered the cut file to the background of my layout, I adhered the center of the cut file with strong liquid adhesive. The outer edges of the cut file are adhered with foam adhesive to create some dimension and shadowing. 

This floral cut file is gorgeous and a MUST HAVE!! I cannot wait to see how you use this cut file. Have a wonderful week, happy crafting!!

Enjoy the Moment | Valeska Guimaraes June 21, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new layout using two wonderful JustNick Studio´s cut files.

I used the Beautiful Bouquet cut file and the title Enjoy the moment cut file. Both of them match perfectly together with Hey Hello Jen Hadfield´s collection.

I cut them with white cardstock and in the title I used yellow distress oxide to paint it, making an ombre effect. 

I also painted my paper background with acrylic paint. While it was drying, I backed some flowers of my bouquet cut file with pink cardstock.

I stitched my background in the same pink cardstock and started to assemble my layout. I glued the bouquet cut file in the center of my page leaving a space for my title. 

I glued my photo on the top of the cut file and all the die cuts around it. I used enamel dots to give more dimensional to my page.

I really love how this layout came out. I think the cut files were perfect to express how amazing that moment was.

Hope you feel inspired to create and use those beautiful cut files. Don't forget to stop by the shop to see more news.

Thank you for reading this!

Have a beautiful day!

Hello | Majken Pullin June 9, 2021 07:00

Hello lovely crafty people, Majken here with you today as a returning design team member for JustNick Studio.  I'm so excited to be back with you for another year! 

Today I have a 12x12 layout to share with you celebrating my 21st anniversary with my husband last month.  We were over-the-moon to be going out for a dining experience at one of our favorite restaurants.  Take a look!

I first decided to use hearts from the Sentiments 1 cut file to layer tone-on-tone as my background and cut them on my Silhouette Cameo 4 in various sizes.

I chose a patterned paper to cut at an angle along the bottom for my title and journaling strips as well as a partial mat for my photo and butterflies!  I created an offset of the butterflies from Sentiments 1 in two sizes and then cut them multiple times so I could layer with different patterned papers.

I cut "hello" from Sentiments 1 for my title in patterned paper and a layer of chipboard to create dimension.

I used the scallop strip from Borders 1 to layer underneath my angled edge and sewed on my layout as well.

Here are the two cut files I used on my project today!

Sentiments 1

Borders 1

Special Bond | Sophie Delorme June 3, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used a beautiful cut file from the store named “Leafy Floral”:

 

 

As you can see it is a background cut file but I decided to use it in pieces.

 

I started my layout with a white cardstock as my base. I applied a little bit of aqua watercolor on it. Then, I teared three strips of patterned papers from the lovely Carta Bella Paper “Oh Happy Day” collection to create 3 horizontal lines, on which I did a zig zag stitch with white thread.

 

 

I used a 3x4” card for my journaling that I placed between the two black and white photos of me and my sweet Sabrina.

 

 

At the base of the photos, I created a big floral cluster. That’s where I used numerous leaves that I cut out of the beautiful cut file. I adhered only the base of them to create more dimension. I love that the watercolor background shows softly behind the leaves.

 

 

I added my title and scattered some Nuvo Drops around the page as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I like the result!

 

Don’t hesitate to cut into your cut files or modify them to fit with your design.

 

I hope this has give you new ideas to try!

 

Thank you for stopping by, I wish you a great crafty day!

 

Sophie xx

 


Sweet Bloom | Sophie Delorme May 28, 2021 07:00

Hey JustNick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used the beautiful Butterfly Border cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white textured cardstock with my cutting machine. I separated it in two parts; the top three butterflies are attached together as well as the bottom two.

 

I used a beautiful Mintay Paper collection named “Beauty in Bloom” on this page. I backed each butterfly with papers from this collection.

 

I traced a smaller butterfly by hand on velum, cut it and placed it on each cut file butterfly. It adds dimension in a very soft way. I also hand stitched on the body of each butterfly and created a little embroidery floss bow.

 

 

For my background, I added a few touches of pastel watercolors.

 

I created my title with some Pinkfresh Studio alphabet dies.

 

 

I embellished around my photo with flowers cut out of a few patterned papers and handwrote my journaling on a journaling card.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a soft and delicate page! This cut file is so perfect! It looks like the butterflies are flying away!

 

I hope you felt inspire today! Thank you for stopping by!

Love | Majken Pullin May 17, 2021 07:00

Hello and welcome crafty friends!  Majken here with you today sharing a new layout with the lovely Spring Swag cut file.  Here is my project:

Today I kept my project simple.  I started with a soft pink patterned paper as my base, and then I spritzed a few drops around the layout. 

While it dried, I cut the Spring Swag cut file out of textured white cardstock.  I decided not to back the cut file, but for some dimension, I popped up the edges while adhering the middle of the cut file directly to the background. I put a dot of adhesive to stick the vellum bird ephemera to the leaf.

I knew I wanted to tuck my photo above the center of the swag.  I layered it with some other patterned paper and ephemera first.

I used the Love ephemera to create a title area. And I love that sweet bow that frames the photo area.

A few sequins, stickers, and ephemera completed my project!

The Spring Swag cut file is gorgeous!

Spring Swag

Head over to grab your spring cut files today, and don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio!

I hope you are having a good spring.

Happy ! by Sophie Delorme May 10, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

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

 

 

I used the beautiful Spring Stained Glass cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white cardstock. I backed the flowers with Paige Evan’s new collection “Wonders” and the rest of the cut file with velum. I made a chain stitch all around it, added adhesive foam behind it and centered it on a beautiful Wonders patterned paper that couldn’t be more perfect for this circular design !

 

 

I printed my photo in black and white to make it stand out around all those springy colors, with a layer of tissue paper behind it.

 

I embellished around the photo with floral and leaves die cuts from the same collection, added a chipboard sticker for my title and a few Pinkfresh Studio crystals mix.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! This cut file is a must have ! Perfect for any spring themed layouts !

Happy As Can Be | Majken Pullin May 5, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a pretty background cut file released just last month called Floral Filigree Background. It is in the style of a flower and reminds me of tile or a quilt, and you can do a lot with it! Here is my layout:

I enlarged the cut file to about 11"x11" and cut it from white textured cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.  I chose several colors on the B sides of some patterned papers from American Crafts Paige Evans Wonders collection. And then I randomly backed each of the filigrees.

Once each filigree had patterned paper behind it, I adhered it to another sheet of white textured cardstock, and the layout came together quickly and easily.

I layered my photo with some patterned paper and ephemera.

I used some stickers for the centers of many of the filigrees.

And I used one of the tags as the title for my layout.

You could also use the cut file as a template for inking or other media.  I know it would look amazing! 

Here is a look at the Floral Filigree Background cut file:

And there are many other beautiful background cut files to choose from for all sorts of different projects, so definitely check them out in the JustNick Studio store.  And don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio.

Thanks for stopping by today...have a wonderful week!

Dream Big by Sophie Delorme April 28, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

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

 

 

It’s Spring time and it is the theme of my page !

 

I used the new Spring Floral 1 and Spring Floral 2 cut files.

 

 

 

I decided to place them as three flower bouquets hanging down above my photo.

 

I cut them on white cardstock and backed them with the beautiful Echo Park Paper collection named “Salutation no.1”

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a little green and blue mixed media background beneath were I planned to place my photos. I also added many tiny colored splatters that matched my color scheme.

 

I printed my photos in black and white. They are cute moments between Sabrina and our dog Fiona playing together during the pandemic lockdown. I added adhesive foam behind my photo and a strip of blue patterned paper to ground it.

 

 

I created a little floral cluster on the right lower side of the photos as a recall from the bouquets, and added a journaling card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I decorated the three bouquets with flowers and leaves die cuts from the same Echo Park collection and punched three bows out of patterned paper placed at the base of each bouquet.

 

 

Finally, I scattered many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Crystal Mix as the final touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I looove this Spring feel so much !

 

I hope you felt inspired by this layout and those gorgeous cut files ! Check out the store for many more beautiful cut file ideas and inspiration !

Hello Spring | Majken Pullin April 21, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello cut file fans - so glad you could visit the JustNick Studio blog today!  Majken here with you to share a layout using two cut files for a Spring-themed project. My layout today features a pretty photo of a rainbow!

How sweet is this camera cut file from the Stay Focused set? I cut it out using white textured cardstock and backed it with several patterned papers from Pink Paislee while I let the watercolor drops on the background white textured cardstock dry.

I fussycut several flowers to sprinkle on top of the cut file too for additional dimension and texture.

I wanted to use the "spring" Thicker in the title, so I combined it with the "hello" from Hello Spring:

Some stickers and enamel dots complete the layout!

Here are the cut files I used in today's project:

I hope your spring is a happy one! Please do share your spring projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us and tag us with #justnickstudio so we can see! You can see many spring cut files here.

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Kitty | Majken Pullin April 8, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you today to share a sweet layout using the JustNick Studio Floral Cluster 1 cut file. This is our sweet kitty, Oreo:

I began this layout by cutting out the Floral Cluster 1 from white textured cardstock. I decided that instead of backing the flowers with patterned paper, that I would put subtle brushes of ink behind them for a soft look.

I took matching Distress Oxide inks and brushed in circles lightly underneath the cut file.  The larger flowers have Fired Brick and the smaller flowers have Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky, while the leaves have Evergreen Bough.  When I was done, I spritzed a few drops of the ink mixed with water and let it dry.  Then I spritzed water on the ink and patted it with a paper towel. Finally, I spritzed some shimmer ink on top.

I layered some patterned paper strips from Cocoa Vanilla Studio along the left edge of the layout.  Next, I adhered the photo under the cut file slightly and wrote some journal strips.  I completed the layout with some sequins and a few pieces of ephemera, including that adorable corduroy heart. I combined two sets of alphabet stickers for my title.

Here is the Floral Cluster 1 cut file:

Floral Cluster 1

Inks are a great way to create a soft background behind cut files, and I hope this inspires you to try this technique!  If you do, be sure to share it with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Thanks for visiting today...have a great day!

Stay Amazing by Sophie Delorme April 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

I used the beautiful “Stay Focused” cut file that I cut on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I backed this cute camera with aqua cardstock and some patterned papers printed at home from a Felicity Jane digital collection.

 

I made sure to pop some elements of the cut file, like the lens of the camera, with adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

 

Before adhering it to my page, I created a light watercolor background and added a few splatters of watercolor paint in colors that matched my paper collection. My photo was quite neutral so I printed it in color. I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and a teared piece of pink polka dot paper that I tucked under the photo, on its right side.

 

I also fussy cut two white frames from the same Felicity Jane collection and placed them on the left side of the photo.

 

My title is a mix of the same “Stay Focused” cut file (for the word “Stay”) and a Simple Stories Cardstock sticker for the word “Amazing”. As you noticed, I did a little bit of doodling with a fine tip black pen on the word stay and on the camera.

 

 

Finally, I simply added a few fussy cut flowers and leaves around the photo and cut file, handwrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you today and that you like this page !

 

Visit the Just Nick Studio shop to see all the amazing choices of cut files. It’s a great way to get you started and inspired to create a page !

 

Thank you for stopping by today, and happy crafting !

Epic Dude | Majken Pullin March 31, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to wrap up the JustNick Studio Masculine weeks.  Today I'm sharing a layout with a fun, new background cut file called Optical Stencil which I think is perfect to use with black textured cardstock and this Simple Stories Bro & Co collection.  Let's look!

 Epic Dude

Bold colors pop with black and this fantastic background cut file. After cutting out the Optical Stencil background, I backed the triangles with different patterned papers, and then overlayed that on top of the blue-green patterned paper with the tiny triangles.

After layering the photo with more patterned paper and some stickers, the layout came together very quickly!  I put the photo area over five 2x2" squares cut from another piece of papers.  And then I used foam stickers for my title over the photo area.

I wrote some journaling strips to document my son's cuteness. :)

Here's another close-up.

And here is a look at the Optical Stencil cut file:

Optical Stencil

I hope you enjoyed all our masculine projects the last ten days and you are inspired to grab a few to create with!  Don't forget to share your crafty projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us on Instragram using #justnickstudio.

Be safe!

Love You | Heart to Heart cut file | Sophie Delorme March 24, 2021 07:00

Hello !

 

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

 

My assignment this week was to create a more masculine layout.

 

 

I used the “Heart to Heart” background 2 cut file for my design and a sweet photo of my teenager holding our dog.

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock for my background and played with Shimmerz paints and watercolors to add some blue mixed media where I planned to put the cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and backed the hearts with different patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio “Be You” collection. I also hand stitched around a few hearts with blue embroidery floss.

 

 

I added adhesive foam to the back of the entire cut file before adhering it to the page. I also added tissue paper, adhesive foam and a chipboard frame to my photo.

 

I teared two strips of patterned paper that I put on the bottom of the page to ground the whole design.

 

I added my title, fussy cut leaves out of patterned paper and a few other embellishments and hand wrote my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you with this page today. There are so many options of cut files in the Just Nick Studio store and many of them can be used for more masculine pages.

 

Thank you for passing by today and happy creating !

LOVE LAYOUT | FRANCESCA MONTORIO March 18, 2021 07:00

Hello Friends!
It’s Francesca on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

   I created the layout using the beautiful cut file Floral cluster 4

 

First I made a background with watercolors on a white cardstock, creating a splotches effect.This makes a nice contrast to the floral cluster that I cut out on white cardstock.

 In some spots, I inserted parts of the cut file to make the composition more fun.

 

I only added a few embellishments to give a pop of color because with such a beautiful cut file you need little else.

Be sure to stop by to check all the new designs. JustNick
I hope that I inspired you with this page today,

Dream My Little Angel | Sophie Delorme March 12, 2021 07:00

Hello Crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I used the Fall Foliage 2 cut file for this page.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock as my base, and applied an Inklingz from Shimmerz Paints using the packaging technique where I planned to put my cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and placed it to create 2/3 of a wreath on the left side of my page.

 

I backed the leaves of the cut file with the beautiful Felicity Jane digital collection named Hanna. I put adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. I love the subtle dimension it creates, and the soft effect of white on white. Perfect for a winter page !

 

 

Then, I backed my photo with tissue paper, patterned paper and adhesive foam, and I fussy cut plenty of floral ephemeras from the same Felicity Jane collection to embellish my page.

 

 

My title is a mix of Thickers and stickers from my stash.

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

 

This layout came together in no time at all ! Using a big cut file really dictates the design of the page and makes it a very easy process !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I inspired you with this page today,

 

Thank you for passing by !

Adorable | Majken Pullin March 10, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you today on this almost-spring day.  Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you using the brand new Floral Banner cut file.  Let's take a look.

I sprinkled a little blue watercolor spatters onto my background paper.  While that dried, I cut the banner from white textured cardstock and then backed the banner and the flowers with patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I wanted to additional dimension for the layout, so I used a chipboard title on top of the pretty banner.  I tucked the photo under the banner slightly after layering some matching patterned paper underneath it.

I also love the butterflies, so I fussycut a few!

I added some ephemera and enamel dots.

Here is the gorgeous new cut file I used for this scrapbook layout.

Floral Banner

You can use this pretty banner for so many projects!

I hope you have a great week.

Sunshine Memories | Majken Pullin February 24, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you again today, and I'm sharing a spring layout because that's what I'm dreaming of now!  I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the Floral Swag 3 cut file, and it is just lovely.  Here is the full layout:

Sunshine Memories

After I cut out Floral Swag 3 from white textured cardstock, I chose to back it with Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream - the colors are so dreamy and sweet!

I chose the watercolor background paper for a soft background for Floral Swag 3, and I used 3D foam tape to pop up the backed cut file so that I could layer some floral ephemera behind it and on top of it for dimension.

I used typed journaling strips for my journaling.

For my title, I used some Thickers and some script alpha from Pinkfresh Studio.

And for a pop of color, I had to use one of those lovely puffy corduroy hearts!

Here's a look at the cut file used on my layout today:

Floral Swag 3

This is me | Anna Blades February 19, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

 

Anna here with you today with a new layout. For today’s project, I’ve used two of the new cut files as die cuts. Because sometimes you don’t have enough die cuts. So, this way, you can create them in any size and color you want.

For my background, I used solid mint cardstock from Felicity Jane Studio. All the design is placed basically in the lower-left corner. First, I made a polka dot background with a stencil and distress oxide ink.

Then, I cut the Leaf Sprig cut file several times from white cardstock. I also cut the Pretty Swag cut file from white cardstock too.

Once I have framed the picture with a piece of patterned paper, I embellished it placing the cut files around it. Since the cut files are white, they make a contrast with the background. And you can see the polka dots peeking through the leaves.

I’ve used a chipboard bit as my title, and some more die cuts to embellish the photo. I also created a little cluster in the upper right corner. I cut a triangle from a striped paper and put another Leaf Spring cut file coming out from behind.

I completed the cluster with the phrase “so sweet” and two more hearts.

Lately, I’m enjoying making very clean and simple pages. Do you like this type of layout? I hope you can find some inspiration in them. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don’t forget to visit the shop to see the new cut files every week!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Forever Happy | Winter Florals | Sophie Delorme February 15, 2021 07:00

Hello all !

 

It’s Sophie here and I have another layout to share !

 

 

This time I used the gorgeous Winter Florals cut file that was just released in January !

 

 

I created a page with a photo of my sweet daughter outside in the snow, and the Mintay collection “Winterland” was just perfect for that.

 

I used a woodgrain paper for my background and thought that cutting the cut file on white cardstock would stand out really well. I cut the woodgrain paper 10 x 12 inches to leave a space on the left of the page to add a blue paper strip and white cardstock.

 

I cut the Winter Florals a few times in different sizes with my cutting machine and left them completely white. No colouring, and no backing with patterned paper. Instead, I created a huge floral and leaves cluster on the bottom right corner of my photo. I made sure to adhere only the base of the cut files so that the leaves would be free of movement. It adds a lot of dimension to the page.

 

 

I added fussy cut leaves, winter flowers and poinsettias to that cluster, many of them with adhesive foam, and I love the overall result !

 

I splattered droplets of white acrylic paint to the background to mimic snow. My title is a combination of Pink Paislee stickers and exclusive foam stickers from Hip Kit Club.

 

Finally, I used a beautiful frame cut out of patterned paper from the same Mintay collection and used it to hand write my journaling, and decorated it with a lovely fussy cut bird.

 

 

I love the winter feel to that page ! Using cut files like this really doesn’t have to be complicated ! I didn’t alter them at all, just used them as they are ! But it really gives to the layout that little extra special addition that makes it a piece of art !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you were inspired by this cut file and my page today !

 

I’ll see you soon !

 

Sophie xx

 


LOVE YOU / Mandalla Heart / Sophie Delorme February 5, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !

Love You Forever | Yvette Weber February 2, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hi friends! It's Yvette with you today, sharing my first layout with Just Nick design team!
The themed this week is Love/Hearts, so I decided to work with the gorgeous Mandalla Heart 3 cut file, which is now available on the JustNick website.
I started by cutting the Mandalla Heart 3 cut file from white cardstock, which reminded me of all the beautiful lace doilies found in my Grandmother's living room. I decided to back only the inside portion of the cut file with pattern papers from Echo Park You & Me collection, while leaving the outer areas of the cut file empty, which created that lace look I was going for. Some hand-stitching was added around the border of the heart for texture as well. 
To add a bit more interest and color to the layout, I cut a piece of Pattern paper on an anger and add it, in the upper left corner.
I finished the layout off, by adding a few pieces of embellishments to the base of my photo.
I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own.
Thanks for stopping by :) xx 

Winter | Anna Blades January 27, 2021 06:30

Hi JustNick friends!

A few weeks ago, it snowed a lot here in Spain (but not a snowflake fell in my city). A friend of mine that lives in Madrid sent me this picture. It’s really awesome because we are not used to it. So, I had to make a layout with this picture. And I wanted it to be as cold as the photo.

First, I cut the Winter Frame cut file from white cardstock. Then, I took a watercolor sheet and drew the circle of the frame on it. And I made the background using watercolors and splatters of white paint.

For my title, I used the Distressed Alpha cut file. I think it has the wintry look I was looking for. I cut the word “winter” also from white cardstock. Then, I glued it with foam dots to add more dimension and depth.

Finally, I add two stickers on the opposite corners and one more on the top of the picture.

I hope you like this icy page. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don’t forget to visit the shop to see the new cut files every week.

Have a wonderful week!


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 !

So Sweet Layout | Triple Layer Fancy Background cut file | Sophie Delorme January 15, 2021 07:00 6 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,

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 !

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.

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.

Merry Christmas and happy crafting!!
