JustNick Cut File Store

Rainbow Row | Marcia Dehn-Nix July 25, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. I've been working my way through some vacation photos from a trip to South Carolina this past May. If you love gardens and/or food, Charleston is a gem. Their are gorgeous homes with extensive gardens, window box planters, and flowering baskets and Charleston is a culinary hub. Oh my, did we eat some amazing meals there! After one such amazing meal, we needed to do some walking and headed toward Rainbow Row. These houses, each painted a different color, are one of the most photographed in the city. 

On this layout, I combined the Outline Alphas and the Script Font to create a dramatic title. I wanted the letters to be tall, like these buildings, so I stretched the cut file. Then I backed the letters with some gorgeous multi-color floral paper from a Maggie Holmes Crate paper line.

I added a travel tag from the Around the World digital cut file and tucked it under the main photo.

Here are a few more detailed shots ...

Here are the cut files I used today ...

I hope I have inspired you today to create a big title with lots of impact! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week.


Circling the Globe | Tarrah McLean June 17, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean joining you and today I have a new layout to share with you! Recently my family and I went on an AMAZING holiday to the UK and Europe for 4 weeks! Hence I have loads of travel photos!

I decided to enlarge the globe included in the Around the World cut file set and cut it out from vellum, I then machine stitched it to the background paper, the collection I have used is the We R Memory Keepers collection called Jet Set. I really like how the vellum mutes the busy background paper a little bit. 

I also cut the plane and the suitcase from this cut file set to use as embellishments that would tie in with my theme. I reduced the size of the plane a little bit and then cut it from orange cardstock and I cut the suitcase out of some green cardstock I had laying around.

A tag, a few stickers, a flair button and some wood veneer were all added to compliment the theme. I also added some white mist to brighten my layout up a little bit!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today! Why not check out the Just Nick store for cut files that may suit your next project? There are loads in store to choose from!

Happy creating!

Welcome our May GDT + a freebie! May 13, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

It is my pleasure to have Raquel Bowman join us this month as our Guest Designer!

My name is Raquel and I am an Australian primary school teacher, Mummy to two kiddies (Jack 1 & Charlotte 3) and wife to Clint. I admit I am pretty obsessed with scrapbooking and love nothing more than playing with a variety of yummy papers and embellishments and making pretty stuff. I love spending time with my family, sharing coffee with friends, having creative time, a glass of wine at the end of a tough day and all things social media! I have been scrapping for around twelve years now and feel I have finally ‘found’ my style. I’m a lover of layers and clusters and enjoy adding little details while still maintaining white space, balance and a cleanliness to my layouts. 

You can find me designing for online publication Jot Magazine, Hip Kit Club and manufacturers Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Pink Paislee.

We asked Raquel to create a page using any of our cut files she liked and this is what she created!

Cut files used: Around the World
I decided to go big for this layout! I super sized the 'lets go' tag, the globe and the plane and made them a key element to my page. I coordinated these cut files with the Journey Collection by Crate Paper which complimented them well. 
We also created a fun background cut file for Raquel to use and be prepared to be WOW'd at what she created with it!
I loved the floral design of this cut file and played around with a few ideas using it. In the end I decided to mat it onto some gorgeous 'Wonder' Crate Paper and cut it into a circle shape. This really softened the edges of the cut file and allowed me to continue with the floral and circular theme when embellishing. 
Amazing and inspiring right!
Thank you SO much to Raquel for guest designing for us today on our blog!
Make sure you keep up with all her scrappiness here:

Meet Me in Tahoe and Sketch Pens! May 11, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone!

Melissa here with you today and I've got a page that utilizes sketch pens and a cut file from Just Nick! I've had my Cameo for over 5 years now and have always wanted to try out the sketch pens but, just never got around to getting some. Now that I have them, it's one of those moments that has me constantly saying, "why didn't I get these sooner???"

Nicole has created several cut files that I think work so perfect for the sketch pens! One of those is the Delicate Florals file. Let me tell you, it was fascinating watching the sketch pens go to work. Because I hadn't used them before, nor had I viewed any tutorials (I like to fly by the seat of my pants and try things out on my own!) I wasn't sure how the pens would interpret the lines and overall design of the cut file. 

It created a beautiful outline of the flowers for me to color in. Fun!

Before I go much further, I want to let you know that I created a process video for the page I'm sharing with you today. It's less than 10 minutes and you get to see my entire process of coloring and building the page around the florals. If that's something you like to view, you can check it out here:

If watching a video isn't the way for you, no worries! I'll still show you a few details of my page. Here it is in its full glory:

 

You can see how I utilized the florals to help balance out the page. I also pulled some florals from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection used, to help bring the floral element together. 

When I'm creating, I do a lot of pushing around with papers and figuring out how different patterns and colors look when layering. It's a fun, and sometimes exhausting, process. If you choose to watch the video, you'll see that in its full glory. 

To color in the florals, I used my Pitt Artist Pens from Faber Castell. I love these pens. They are india ink so, they give a really cool stained look and are easy to blend.

Here are some close up shots of my page:

I used one other cut file - the geotag and right here phrase are from the Around the World cut file group. So cute and fun for those vacation and travel pages. 

Do you have sketch pens? Get them out and have some fun! They really do help stretch the use of your cut files!

Hey there friends!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am excited to be bringing you a new layout that I created using some of the brand new cut files in the Just Nick Store!

I created a travel layout as soon as I saw the 'Around the World' cut file..... it went perfectly with the Starshine collection from Shimelle! I only used the plane from this set and cut it out on vellum.....

I absolutely love this Striped Alpha Cut file set! It looks great with a paper backed behind it for some extra pop of colour! 

I added some embellishments, machine stitching and some splats of mist to finish off! 

Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for all the awesome new cut files.........new ones are added all the time so check them out!

Happy cutting and creating!
