December Daily Red Cup | Jaclyn Rench December 15, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here to share with you another page from my 2017 December Daily album.  I hope you've followed along the last couple of weeks to download your FREE copies of the holiday cut designs that we've been featuring. No worries, if you missed out on one of your favorites, they are now in the store for purchase.

The Modern Tree  from Day 5, has been calling my name.  I love the simple graphic nature of this design and anything in a trio is just that much cuter!  I used this cut file in not just one, but two ways on my day 11 spread.

 

I first used the trio of trees as a printable to accent my 3x4 journaling card.  I colored my images within the silhouette software, and sized them down to fit just below my text.  Once printed, I added an extra layer of stamping and a tiny die cut heart embellishment.

On the second part of the spread I  used the cut file in the traditional sense, by sizing the polka dotted tree to fit atop my Starbucks bag. I backed it with a lighter colored cardstock and attached the two with foam adhesive for a fun dimensional look.  The tree was then accented with stamping, stickers and a pretty paper clip bow, to finish off it's festive appearance.

Here's a close look at both of those elements outside of the page.

I've had so much fun incorporating these designs into my December Daily album this year.  We'd love to see if you are doing the same.  If so, please tag us on Instagram under the hashtag #justnickstudio so we can check them out!

This cut file was SO fun to use! I cut the tags different sizes using a mix of kraft, white, and patterned card stock. Then I backed the cut outs with another scrap of paper and was ready to add some stitching accents! 

On some of the tags I used a ruler to mark straight, different sized lines with a pencil and then stitched them, some I stitched around the image, others I stitched snowflakes, and a couple I did some french knot stitches! 

I put thread or bakers twine through the hole of each tag and put adhesive so they would stay in position on my layout! 

For my background I just sewed on some scraps of Christmas paper with my sewing machine using a mix of white and red threads. I added my photo and some wood snowflakes and Christmas trees and then the layout was complete!

14 Days of Giveaways - Day 10 | Marcia Dehn-Nix December 10, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!  Marcia here today for Day 10 of our 14 day FREE digital cut file giveaway! It's like Christmas (or Hanukkah, or maybe just Happy Holidays for you) everyday!

Today's FREE cut file is the Ho Ho Ho Strip and I thought it would be perfect to cut from heat transfer (iron-on) vinyl and create a festive holiday shirt for myself.

If you have never cut vinyl, you should definitely try it. The results are fabulous!! Don't worry, I will walk you through it.

Vinyl is cut with the right side facing down on the mat. (The back side is facing up.) That means, if you are cutting words, you need to flip them to their mirror image. Right click on the image and select Flip Horozontal. Resize your image to fit the shirt you want to apply it to. I sized mine so that it was 9" wide for a size L ladies t-shirt.

In the cutting window, select Cut and for material, select Vinyl (or Heat Transfer Material, or Reflective Heat Transfer). I used DecoSPARKLE Heat Transfer Holographic Vinyl. It is much thicker than regular iron on vinyl, so I increased my blade depth to 5. You want to cut through the vinyl but not the clear layer that is protecting the top of the vinyl. This is called a Kiss Cut. Play around with a small piece before cutting a large image. It helps to use a new blade and double cut.

Now we need to weed the unwanted parts away, leaving only the image cut on the protective plastic. Place the image on your shirt, centering it, and heat up your iron to the cotton setting. Different vinyl might recommend using a different setting. Be careful about your shirt selection! You do not want to use a shirt that will melt when you apply heat. When the iron is hot enough, apply even pressure on top of your image, moving the iron to make sure you are applying heat to the entire image. Let it cool for a minute, then try to peel the clear top layer away. If it is not peeling easily, replace the clear top layer, and iron some more.

Wash inside out and hang to dry to extend the life of your garment. I hope you give it a try.

Remember that Today's design - Ho Ho Ho Strip - is yours for FREE today only!

14 Days of Giveaways - Day 9 | Laureen Wagener December 09, 2017 07:00

Hi you guys,

it's Laureen with you today on Day 9 of the 14 Days of Giveaway happening here at Just Nick Studios! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!


I was super lucky to get to create a project with the beautiful Put up the Lights cut file!
You can get this one today only! Later down in the post there is information on how to get this one for free!

As one part of our seasonly (is that even a word?) we frame a layout that matches the current season and  we didn't have one for our Christmas decor yet.
So what better way to share today's file than using it on a layout in the way I love the most - STITCHED!



I let my Cameo draw the design on a 12x12 sheet of white cardstock and then also cut out all the tiny lightbulbs out of patterned paper from Studio Calico and the Merry & Bright collection.
I then decided that having a full 12x12 background was a little too much and so I cut my strip of paper down to 6x12 inch and began piercing the holes for me to stitch.


Nothing too fancy going on with my stitching - it's just a regular backstitch in white.
After I had stitched the entire outline of the design I adhered the patterned paper in the center to create the lightbulbs.


I wanted to add even more texture and so I used tissue paper and ruffled it up and then adhered my piece of stitching onto foam squares.
Embellishing this page was hard - I didn't want to cover up the beautiful design but also didn't want it to be all naked.


So I just used two mini clusters directly next to my photo and then sprinkled my favorite embellishment all over the page - enamel dots. Don't they look like some sort of christmas candy in this layout?



And that's a wrap! I hope you enjoyed my layout and got some inspiration out of it for your project using the gorgoeus free file for today!

How do you get this file you may wonder? It's easy!

Just enter code: LIGHTSFREE2 at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on 9th December 2017
No purchase necessary.
Design will be available in the JustNick store for purchase after the discount code expires.



Stay tuned for the next free file tomorrow!

Have a great Saturday,
Laureen

Welcome to Day 5 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

For today’s projects, I decided to create two Christmas cards. What I did was cut the trees with my Silhouette Cameo and then back them with a piece of vellum. After that, I did the same steps of a shaker card and repeated the same with the second tree.

In the end, I added some embellishments and some phrases that go perfectly with the theme of the cards. Most of the supplies I used are from December Days collection by Pinkfresh Studio. 

Today’s design – MODERN TREES - is yours for FREE today only!
Just enter code: TREEFREE2 at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 5, 2017.

No purchase necessary. The design will be available in the JustNick store for purchase after the discount code expires.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow to get a new cut file for FREE.
