JustNick Cut File Store

Right Here Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez November 27, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used one cut file and the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The cut file I chose was the Stems 5.

 

To start my layout, I cut the cut file out of white cardstock, and painted it. I also did mixed media on another white cardstock, stamped flowers and fussy cut them. Then, I painted my background.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued my photos with adhesive foam to give them dimension. Then, glued the flowers I had fussy cut, and the cut file.

 

For my title, I used a piece of ephemera from the Color Study collection. To finish my layout, I fussy cut three butterflies and glued them. I also added stickers and white splatters.

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired to create beautiful things! Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

 

Have a lovely day!

LOVE YOU by SOPHIE DELORME November 23, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used two cut files from the store: Piece of the Pie and Stems 5.

 

 

 

I cut the Piece of the Pie cut file on white cardstock and filled the inner pieces with two black and white photos and patterned papers from the beautiful Bungalow Lane collection from Paige Evans.

 

I did a chain stitch with different embroidery threads around each pieces, cut the white cardstock to an 11 ½ inches square and backed it with an orange cardstock.

 

 

Then, I created three floral clusters in a tone-on-tone manner on the yellow, orange and blue pieces, and added the beautiful Stems 5 cut files to them. I love that they stand out so well, cut in white, on the colorful clusters !

 

 

I cut my journaling into strips and placed them in the right lower piece of the pie.

 

 

My title comes from a mix of American Crafts and Pinfresh Studio stickers.

 

 

I added numerous Pinkfresh Studio Crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

 

 

How I love how it turned out !

 

This Piece of the Pie cut file is such a great start on a page ! And the cute stems are the perfect addition to floral and leaves clusters !

 

I hope that you felt inspired by my page today,

 

Have a great crafty day !

 

Sophie xx

Happiness & Sunshine | Majken Pullin November 19, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share a layout using the new Fall Split Florals.  Isn't it just lovely? 

How pretty is this cut file tone on tone?

I cut the cut file out using white textured cardstock and adhered it down just a little - I wanted some of the edges to pop up for dimension.

I machine stitched around the edge of the main square of white textured cardstock for additional texture.  I added a bit of ephemera and stickers for added interest - but just a few!  I used an ephemera strip to create the title.

Some enamel dots and tiny stickers finished the project.

Here is the beautiful cut file:

Thanks for stopping by the JustNick Studio blog today.  Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Fall | Sheena Rowlands November 13, 2021 07:00

Hi there x

Sheena here again and today I am sharing with you my latest 12 x12 layout featuring two autumnal Just Nick Studio cut files.

Autumn is my most favourite time of year and I just loved these cut files from the moment I saw them & I knew I wanted to use them with photos of my Son's dog Rafa.

Hello Fall.

Firstly I cute leaf border from white cardstock and backed it with coordinated patterned papers mainly from the Paige Evans Truly Grateful collection.

I also cut the Fall leaf cluster 3 and backed this with similar papers.

I tore my background paper on the diagonal before adhering it to the white cardstock. The filled leaf border cut file was added over the diagonal and the photos were slotted in behind it.

 

The fall leaf cluster was added on foam pads at the lower right side as a base for the layout title. As not to cover the beautiful cut files I embellished simply around them with a few chipboard and sticker flowers. The page was finished with a few splashes of ink and paint.

 

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous autumnal cut files available in the store, keep on checking back as new cut files are being added all the time.

Till next time x


Coffee Time Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez November 8, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used one cut file and the October Kits from Hip Kit Club.

 

The cut file I chose was the Background 8.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut file out of gray cardstock. Then, I painted my background. For this I used the Vicki Boutin art crayons.

 

Once the background dried, I glued the cut file and my photos with adhesive foam to create dimension. Then, I added three clusters of flowers.

 

For my title I used a piece of chipboard. To finish my layout, I added puffy stickers, chipboard stickers, wood veneer and enamel dots.

Fall Faves | Majken Pullin November 4, 2021 07:00

Hello, and happy Thursday crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a colorful fall scrapbook layout using two new cut files: Rustic Ring 2 and Fall Faves!  Let's take a look.

I love the Rustic Ring 2 cut file over the blue patterned paper! After I cut out the ring, I brushed light blue paint in a circle under the area of where the ring would sit. While it dried, I backed the ring with patterned paper.

I sewed several circles on top of the paint layer, and I layered flowers and leaves underneath and on top of the ring for some colorful dimension.

I adhered the title to the center.

Here are the two cut files I used for my layout today.

Halloween Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez October 29, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used three cut files and the Story Teller collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The cut files I chose were: Happy Halloween 3, Spiderweb 2 and Halloween Icons 3.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut files. I used white cardstock to cut the Happy Halloween 3 and the Spiderweb 2, and for the Halloween Icons 3, I used one of the papers from the collection.

 

Once I had cut all the cut files, I painted my background with the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons. Then, I backed the Spiderweb 2 cut file with vellum paper.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the Spiderwebs and the photo on top of them. Then, I added flowers I had fussy cut.

 

For my title I used the Halloween word from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file. To finish my layout I added the bats from the Halloween Icons 3 cut file, ephemera, stickers and puffy stickers.

Halloween Snapchat | Sheena Rowlands October 27, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring lots of the great Halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Now my children are grown we don't tend to do so much at Halloween but I do love a photo filter & I have plenty of fun photos I can scrap. I had such fun making this scrapbook page & loved mixing up lots of different cut files together.

Halloween Snapchat.

 

After adding paint to my background cardstock I machine stitched some strips cut with the Boho Borders 1 cut file over the top.

The Spiderweb 2 cut file was perfect to create a base for both of my photos.

After using ephemera from Simple Stories Spooky Nights to embellish around my photos I cut ghosts from vellum using the Ghostly cut file and bats from cardstock using the Halloween Icons 3 cut file to add around the layout.

I finished the whole page off with my title in the centre back filling the word Halloween from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file.

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x 

 


Hello Fun | Majken Pullin October 18, 2021 07:00

Hello, and happy Monday cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share a colorful scrapbook layout using a couple of cut files: Fall Frame and Sentiments 1. Let's take a look!

I cut the Fall Frame and Hello from Sentiments 1 from textured black cardstock - it just makes those colors pop!

I cut a frame from the patterned paper from Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection and adhered it to white cardstock, and then I adhered the frame over that, leaving the leaves and stems alone for some dimension.

I created a frame for my photo and tucked it under the stems.

I cut Hello large to make a statement and finished my title with some Thickers.

Here is another close up:

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

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

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

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

Hi there, Sheena here again x

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

Awesome Boy.

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

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

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

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

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

Till next time x


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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

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

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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

I let it dry completely.

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

I took a ton of close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today !

 

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

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

Hi there, Sheena here again x

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

Love This Place.

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

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

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

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

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

Till next time x

 

 


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

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

COFFEE | Nathalie DeSousa September 15, 2021 07:00

Hi there!

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

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

Sweet | Majken Pullin September 14, 2021 07:00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a great week!

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.

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

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

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

Hello JustNick friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Check out the new releases in the JustNick store.

Thank you for stopping by.

 


Bloom | Sheena Rowlands August 24, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

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

Bloom.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next time x

Friends | Majken Pullin August 16, 2021 10:30

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share another scrapbook layout. On today's project I am using two cut files: Script Alpha to create my title and Scribble Circle Background that I "chopped" and enlarged to create a bit of a different background.  Let me show you how I modified and used the cut files!

To create the single large scribble circle, I first released the compound path and moved the image to the side, deleted the remaining duplicate image, then put the compound path back on the one you moved to the side. 

Next, use the knife tool (if you don't have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, you can use the eraser tool instead) to cut one corner circle from the background.

Once the circle is separated, delete the remaining circles and zoom in so you can see the edges well.

Then refine the edges using the eraser tool. Don't stress this part if you aren't exact...you can cut the circle out and use fine-tip scissors to smooth your edges.

I then enlarged the circle, cut it out from white textured cardstock, and then used watercolors to add color in different concentrations to match the patterned papers.  While that dried, I tore two strips to put along the left and right of my base page. I used watered down white acrylic paint and blue watercolor to spritz ink on my base.

After that dried, I put my circle on the base page and sewed messy circles around the cut file.  Then I framed my photos with patterned paper and ephemera to put inside my circle.

I laced my circle with stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard pieces, and more.

I cut "friends" from dark blue patterned paper using the new Script Alpha cut file and followed the circle to create my title.

Here are the two cut files I used in my project today:

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!
 
Have a lovely day!

Natures Sunshine | Sheena Rowlands August 11, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I am sharing with you my latest 12 x 12 layout featuring a lovely summery Just Nick Studio cut file.

Natures Sunshine.

When I saw this Sunshine cut file in a recent release I knew I wanted to use it so got creating straight away.

I chose one of the sun shapes and duplicated it, changing the size of a few of them till I had 5 ready to cut. I then cut them from a single sheet of white cardstock.

Whilst the cardstock was still on my cutting mat I painted them. This way I could keep track of all the pieces and also it was easier to have them tacked down even though it does look quite messy!

Once the cardstock was dry I carefully lifted off the pieces I wanted to use and attached them to my background patterned paper using foam pads.

I've used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection for this layout.

Not wanted to cover too much of the suns, I added my layered photo to the bottom left with a few Sunkissed flowers to embellish it and added a little detail to the top right to balance this.

Using the Sunshine cut file again I cut the word out twice in yellow and white cardstock and also a small offset in a blue cardstock. These were all adhered together before adding to the page.

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

Till next time x

 

 

 

 


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!

Dinosaur Fun | Nicole Kerr August 4, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick Friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a super cute mixed media layout using two of the new cutfiles, Script Alpha and Quatrefoil Circle.
For my products today, I'm using Vicky Boutin's newest collection Color Study. I wanted to create a mixed media background to go with all of the colorful, mixed media elements in the collection.  I used the Quatrefoil cutfile and modeling paste to create the dimensional background and Vicki's watercolor crayons to add all of the color to it. When adding the modeling paste ad the different layers of color, it is important to make sure each layer is dry before beginning the next.  I also applied all of this on a paper that was prepped with a foundation of clear gesso.
Once all of my layers of mixed media were dry, I machine stitched the circle mixed media paper and the vertical strips of paper to my page.  Not only does stitch add to the texture and handmade appearance of the page, it also helps flatten the warped paper.
I created the word "fun" in my title using the new script alpha file. I welded each of the letters together so once cut, it remained one word. This also helps the letters look more intentional and seamless.
After having everything in place, I made sure that it was all glued to the foundation paper. Traditional tape and foam doesn't like to stick to gesso or mixed media surfaces, so glue works best!
Thanks so much for joining me today!
I hope I've inspired you to create your next mixed media project!

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!!

Good Vibes | Majken Pullin July 29, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout that is a tribute to my favorite caffeinated beverage. My former favorite was a different flavor that has since been discontinued -- booooo! -- so I found this one.  Here's my layout:

Good Vibes

I started with the pink stripe background as my base, and I decided my photo area would go in an 8 1/2" x 11" mat of white textured cardstock (which I spritzed with some pink and pinkish-orange watercolors) with a pink mat. I machine stitched around the edge. 

I cut the Good Vibes cut file out in blue-green cardstock, and then I offset the phrase slightly using my Silhouette Studio software and cut the offset out in white textured cardstock to give my title some dimension.

I used the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping It Real puffy alphabet stickers to finish my title area above the photo.

I used a journal spot to help mat my photo area, and I tucked ephemera around it as well.

On the left side of my layout, I machine stitched some wavy lines down the side and then layered some ephemera and enamel dots down the stitching.

Here is the cut file used on my project today:

After a very challenging year and half, we all deserve some good vibes! Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Captured Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez July 27, 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 Labels 1 cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I painted two white cardstocks in rainbow colors and used them to cut the cut file. Then I used the labels to make my background.
 
Once my background was done, I glued my photo with adhesive foam to create dimension. To finish my layout, I added stickers from the April Kits, from Hip Kit Club, and some epoxy flairs from Scrappin Happy 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!
 
Have a lovely day!

Homemade Sunshine by Sophie Delorme July 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing another cute summery layout !

 

 

I used the “Cool Treats” that was just released recently on the shop !

 

 

I cut it twice on white cardstock and really made it the main element on my page !

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a mixed media background.

 

I used a Carta Bella Paper collection named “Summer” for this page. I backed each treat with all sorts of patterned papers from the collection.

 

 

I also used velum on top of pink cardstock for the popsicle next to my photo on the left.

 

 

I created an ice cream cone with craft cardstock that I embossed with an embossing plate. Looove this effect !

 

 

I mounted some of the treats on adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

I embellished my page with a few floral stickers and created a banner on the top right side of my photo.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling and added many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels for a bit of sparkle !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the result ! I hope you do too and that my page could inspire you ! A cut file is the best way to get started with a layout, as it dictates so easily the design !

 

Thanks for stopping by !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

Beach Vacation | Majken Pullin July 16, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here today with you to share another Summer project during Summer weeks.  I have a very beach-y vacation layout today.

Doesn't it just make you think of warm breezes, sunshine, and cool waves?

I cut the "BEACH" from Beach Sand Surf on my Cameo in white textured cardstock and backed the open parts of the cut file with the ombre paper.  Then I machine stitched around all the letters in the word.

I cut the letters for "VACATION" out from Outline Alpha and backed those letters from the reverse of the same ombre paper to stack below on the left side of the layout. 

And I tucked little bits of ephemera and stickers around the letters.

I created a border along the bottom of the page to mimic water.

I put my photo area to the right of "VACATION" and sprinkled a few enamel dots to create a visual triangle.  And my journaling fit underneath my photo area.

I hope you have some fun summer memories to scrapbook - go check out the JustNick Studio store for all kinds of fun, summer cut files!

Here's a look at the cut files used in today's project:

Have a great summer!

Hello Summer | Nicole Kerr July 15, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!
Nicole here and today I have a very colorful and "tasty" layout to share with you using the new Cool Treats cut file.
This cutfile has four of the cutest popsicles and ice cream cone ever and I couldn't resist using all four to document some tasty ice cream on vacation!
For my layout, I used Echo Park's Summer Dreams mini kit that had this adorable popsicle paper! I divided it into four sections by stitching a few different colors of thread on my sewing machine in a couple different stitch patterns. This not only provides that visual barrier between each section, but it also helps to flatten down the mixed media that I started with. After adding the gesso and watercolors, paper tends to warp and the stitching helps to flatten it back out a bit. 
Once the four areas were divided, I created each like a mini 6x6 layout, using the top left as my title section and the bottom right as more of embellishment and journaling spot. I used one of the cut files in each of these areas as large embellishments, backed with coordinating papers from the collection.
In the other two areas, I used photos of my boys enjoying their specialty ice cream on the boardwalk! It's one of our favorite night time treats!  In these areas, I used the cut files as embellishments and like a layering piece behind my photos. I also used some puffy stickers and acrylics from Elle's Studio and tangled thread from my stash to help embellish those areas.
These "cool treats" are super cute and add the perfect touch to any summer, sweet treat spread! Thanks for taking the time today to stop by and see how I used them! Please tag us on IG or Facebook showing how you used them on your next project!

Summer Vacation | Valeska Guimaraes July 14, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new 12x12 layout with two beautiful cut files  available in the JustNick store. 

Summer is already here and we are so excited about it, are you?

I combined two new designs in this layout.

One of them is the Makin Waves cut file that I use in the whole page and the other one is Hello Summer 2  for my title.

First of all, I made a watercolor background in a white cardstock and let it dry.

Then I cut my waves from another white cardstock and cut the same design again from a patterned paper but in this time I used the offset tool of my Studio Program in 0.2 cm distance. This allowed me to increase the margin of the design and achieve this outline effect in the white cut out.

Then, I glued the white cut out in the patterned paper cut out. With some of the cut outs from the patterned paper that were loose, I added some 3d foam adhesive to create some dimension in my layout, and curled the ends of the cut outs giving it more movement.

I stitched around the circle and started to added some die cuts flowers and others embellishments. I used Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and an acrylic sun glasses from Thata Scrapbooking.

Then I used the new Hello Summer 2 to create a title in the middle of my page. I separated the cut file with the release compound path tool in my Studio Program and made two cuts from it. One of them I cut from an offset from a vellum paper and the other one, I cut the title from a stripe patterned paper.

Hope you enjoy and create beautiful projects with the new JustNick summer designs available in the store. Every week there are new cut files for you to be inspired by.

Have a wonderful week.


HELLO SUMMER | Nathalie DeSousa July 10, 2021 07:00

Hello there, and Happy Weekend!

Nathalie here to bring you a bit more of inspiration using JustNick Studio's cut files.   Our focus this week is all in the glorious Summer Days, so I combined two of designs in this page...

 

 

Nothing says Summer like a nice sunny day!  I started by cutting just the sun section of the SOAK UP THE SUN cut file from white cardstock.   A bit of foam adhesive -when backing the cut outs with patterned paper - creates that lovely shadow/dimension in the page.   I added a bit of ink blending to the background to create the nice fluffy clouds.

 

 

 

 

I am using Carta Bella's Summer collection for this page.  So, I added a few papers and florals behind the photos.  Then used the new HELLO SUMMER cut file to create the title for the page.  I made sure to separate the cut file, so I could create an offset and the title words.

 

 

 

I added a few extra embellishments next to the title, then followed with a few drops of gold ink.

 

 

I hope this inspires you to check the newest designs available at the shop!  There is always new cut files that are sure to spark your next project in the JustNick Studio shop.

 

XO


Fun in the Sun | Sheena Rowlands July 8, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I am sharing with you my new 12x12 layout featuring one of  the summery Just Nick Studio's cut files.

Fun in the Sun.

I had this idea from the start so I cut the Fun in the Sun cut file twice from white cardstock and then trimmed the centre sun from the second one, removing the inner words.

After poking a hole in line with each of the 24 points I used 4 different coloured embroidery threads to sew around the sun shape in a repeating pattern at every 10, 8, 6 & 4 holes. Then using foam pads I added it back over the first cut file.

I added a stencilled sunburst behind the cut file and then cut the inner letters from patterned paper and used foam pads to raise them up.

I added 2 photos from a family holiday in Tenerife a few years ago which I matted on teal cardstock before tucking under the cut file.

The paper range I used was Simple Stories Sunkissed collection which was perfect for this summer themed layout.

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

 


Wonderful | Sheena Rowlands June 23, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone x

Sheena here again sharing a new 12x12 layout with you featuring another one of Just Nick Studio's fabulous cut files.

Wonderful.

I used the Floral Swag 3 cut file which I enlarged to fill a 12 x12 mat and cut it from white cardstock.

Using both vellum for the flowers and patterned paper for the leaves, I backed the cut file. Using variegated pink floss I hand sewed 5 french knots to the centre of all the solid flowers adding texture. Foam pads were added to the back of the cut file to add depth.

I used a Paige Evans patterned paper as my base allowing the photo, taken at a local botanical gardens, and the cut file to pop.

The title was cut from another patterned paper along with a few butterflies to finish.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out this Floral Swag 3 cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.


Mmmmm Ice Cream | Majken Pullin June 22, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone and welcome to the JustNick Studio blog!  Majken here with you today, and I'm sharing a "sweet" layout.  Let's take a look:

Does this lovely cut file make you hungry for some ice cream?  I cut out the Ice Cream cut file in white textured cardstock and then backed it with shimmer brown cardstock and patterned paper. Dark brown enamel dots for chocolate chips...yum!  And I machine stitched around the ice cream and throughout the cone for some fun texture.

For the title of my sweet layout, I used the very cute Doodle Alphabet and cut out all my letters with white textured cardstock as well.  I backed the first part of the title with the lighter part of an ombre patterned paper.

And then I backed the remaining part of my title with the darker part of the ombre patterned paper.

I created some tags for my photos and tied them together for a very mini-tag album!

I put journaling in the center of my title and added a bow and some other little touches.

Here are the cut files I used!

Ice Cream

Doodle Alpha

I hope this inspires you to create some fun elements for your past and future ice cream outings!  Please share with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio tag.  We would love to see them!

Have a great week.

Magic ! | Sophie Delorme June 17, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing a 8,5” x 11” layout !

 

 

I rarely do this size of page ! I used the beautiful “Floral Burst Background” cut file.

 

 

I backed each petal with patterned papers from an exclusive Hip Kit Club kit from March 2021. I added adhesive foam behind it and placed it on the right side of my page.

 

 

I machine stitched around my white cardstock with yellow thread and backed the whole page with a soft blue patterned paper.

 

I printed my photo in black and white so that both my photo and the beautiful cut file would stand out.

 

I added a floral cluster with die cuts from the same kit on the bottom of the cut file, placed a few phrase stickers on the top left where I stamped the date, and handwrote my journaling.

 

Here are a few close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple and sweet !

 

I hope you can find some inspiration with this page today !

 

Until next time,

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

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 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!
