14 Days of Holidays - Day 14 + GDT! December 18, 2015 00:00 6 Comments

It is the LAST day of our 14 Days of Holidays... we truly hope you have enjoyed all of our downloads :)

Today, we have a a very talented Guest Designer - Amy Coose joining us!

Hi everyone, my name is Amy Coose and I am thrilled to be guesting for Just NicK! I live in Northern Virginia with my hubby on 20 years, my two teenagers, and my sweet 4 year old. I have been scrapbooking in some form since high school (I won't tell you how long ago that was), and love that it creates snapshots of our lives for us to look back on. When I am not scrapbooking, you will find me at the ice rink.  We are a huge hockey family and spend way too much time at the ice rinks in our area. Thanks so much, Nicole, for asking me to be a guest.

We asked Amy to pick up some designs from the JustNick store and create a project! Look at what she sent us:

I used the Sweater Weather cut file and the Leaves cut file. I adore how this layout came out. I had so much fun just tucking those fabulous cut file leaves all around my layout.  The title is from the Sweater Weather set, and it was perfect.

 
Amy used some of our holiday designs to create this great holiday layout!
I love large titles, and I cut it out of my patterned paper and backed it with gold.  It was the perfect way to frame my photo of our Christmas tree.
The Laurel wreath file is so beautiful, and it was perfect as a frame for some of my embellishments.
Next, we sent Amy today's FREEBIE file and she created this SUPER cute holiday card! I love how she sized the freebie to fit her card front :)
I used the negative of the cut file, and stitched around it using gold thread. I added a sentiment and some twine and that was it. Super easy, but also super cute!
Thanks SO much to Amy for joining us today! If you would like to keep up with all Amy's lovely work, please do so:

Welcome back to another day of our 14 days of holidays FREE cut file giveaways! Marcia here today and I am excited to be sharing a fun 2 page layout using today's free design - Merry Wishes!

Here is what today's freebie looks like:

I take so many pictures at Christmas that I decided to make a 2 page layout. The first page has some snapshots I took of the kiddos while we were waiting to see Santa. The second page captures the visit with Santa.

I repeated the "MERRY" text down the whole side of my layout and backed each one with a different pattern paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Studios Tis The Season collection. I layered more words from the Merry Wishes cut file on top.

Here is the second page...

I used 2 more JustNick cut files here; the Naughty or Nice and the Tree Trio.

It is a super fun one and I couldn't wait to use it on this project.

I enlarged the design quite a bit as the MERRYMERRY is quite thin otherwise. I backed the words with different papers, leaving some areas open with white space!

I added in a few other cut files available in the store - Holly Berries and Holiday Words.. here are a few sneaks of those

14 Days Of Holidays Giveaway - Day 10 December 14, 2015 00:00 4 Comments

 

Hello JustNick friends!

Welcome to Day 10 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

Today's design -  Candy Cane Background - is yours for FREE today only!


Lee-Anne here today with a festive layout for the holiday season.

For my layout, I used the Candy Cane Background.  I cut it out on white card stock with my electronic die cutting machine and backed it with some red patterned paper to look like a candy cane. I wanted to define the white more and add more texture so I added some machine stitching using red thread.

As you probably have noticed, I didn't stop there.  There are so many awesome holiday cut files in the Just Nick Shop, that I decided to go further and cut out the Snowflake Background cut file on some vellum. To separate the snowflakes in the background I released the compound path on my Silhouette Cameo, resized the snowflake shapes and then cut them out.

I love the new Holiday Words cut file so I used the word "snow" and "magic" for my title and cut it out on white card stock and placed it in the middle of my layout.

For most of my layouts, I like to add shadows and dimension so when I saw the  Holiday Card Overlay 1 Cut File, I instantly knew that the snowflakes overlay would be perfect to add to the layout.  For this, I backed it with patterned paper and popped it up with foam squares. 

As you can see, the overlay isn't only for cards, it also works great for layouts and project life layouts as well.  Here is a more detailed closeup of my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying all our freebies this month! This is our FINAL WEEK of freebies, but don't forget that we always have a monthly freebie mid-month that you can snag for FREE!

14 Days of Holidays - Day 6! December 08, 2015 07:00 4 Comments

Welcome to Day 6 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today to show your how I've used the snowflake background design, to create not one but two festive holiday cards.

I sized the file to about 6.5" by 7.5".  Doing so allowed me to cut a piece that was big enough to use for both of my card designs, with only one pass of the diecutting machine.

 

For this first card, I layered a portion of the background onto a piece of patterned paper that was trimmed to fit my card front.  I trimmed off the excess portion of the diecut design and set it aside for my next card.

 

I used Versamark ink and glitter embossing powder to add a whole lot of sparkle to my diecut design.  Not only does it allow the snowflakes to stand out against the patterned background, but it's just plain pretty!  Adorning the centers of several of the snowflakes with gems and rhinestones is a fun finishing touch.

 

As noted, my next card design utilizes the leftovers from the first card - a great way to stretch your diecuts and save on time!  I simply trimmed out two of the remaining snowflake designs, layered them onto one another, and stitched on a pretty coordinated button. 

 

This dimensional, layered snowflake makes for a perfect centerpiece to the design.

 

Today’s design – Snowflake Background - is yours for FREE today only!
