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 !
My Little Elf | 12 days of Givaways | Sophie Delorme December 9, 2020 07:19
Hello crafty friends and welcome here !
It’s Sophie and I am sharing a beautiful layout to inspire you with this amazing FREE cut file available today in the JustNick shop for the “12 days of Givaways” event ! It is named “Winter Wreath”.
I cut it on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed all the pretty tiny leaves and flowers with a beautiful Christmas collection from P13 called “The Four Seasons; Winter”.
My background is a patterned paper from the same collection, on which I applied white gesso behing where I planned to put the wreath. I also added plenty of white splatters on the page.
I carefully added adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page.
My photo is from my little girl and me setting up our Christmas village ! I backed the photo with tissue paper, adhesive foam and a patterned paper, and placed it on the inner right side of the wreath. I added a Project Life card next to it for my journaling.
I fussy cut numerous leaves and berries mainly from the same P13 collection but also from a Mintay Papers Flora Book to embellish the wreath. I created a huge cluster on the right lower corner of my photo and a smaller one on top of the wreath with two beautiful bows, made out of ribbon and cardstock.
I added my title and a few white Nuvo Cristal Drops as the finishing touch !
Here are some close-ups !

Memories Together | Sophie Delorme November 19, 2020 07:00
Hello friends !
It' Sophie with you today with a beautiful fall layout to share !
I used the gorgeous "Fall Leaf Swag 2" cut file recently released on the JustNick store, and the "Fall Leaves Outline" cut file as well:
I started my page by using a craft 12x12 cardstock as my base, applied white gesso in the centre and some Shimmerz paints to create a soft mixed media look.
I also added white splatters with acrylic paint.
I cut the cut files on white cardstock with my cutting machine. I backed each leaf with patterned papers from the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio fall collection called "Days of Splendor". As you might notice, I also used the inner pieces of some leaves, sticked them down on patterned paper and cut around them.
I arranged the cut files around my photo in a diagonal line. I have added adhesive foam to the cut files before adhering them to the page.
My photo is a family photo taken a few weeks ago on a beautiful fall sunny morning nearby where I live.The fall colors all around us were just magical !
I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo as well.
Then, I created a few floral and leaf clusters with embellishments from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection around the photo and on the upper left of the page, and stitched that beautiful tab "Family Time" on the top of the page.
I handwrote my journaling and stamped the date, and that's a wrap up !!
These autumnal cut files are so versatile ! They can go for girly or boyish layouts and lead you easily to create your design.
Here are more close-ups:
I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you for stopping by !
TOGETHER RIGHT NOW by Sophie Delorme September 11, 2020 07:00
Hello JustNick friends !
It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a colourful layout with you !
I used one of the newest cut file in the shop called Boho Florals 3:
I started my design with a white background, playing with mixed media, applying some Distress Oxide inks diluted with water using the packaging technic on my water-colour cardstock.
I cut the cut file on white cardstock as well, and backed it with the beautiful Paige Evans collection named "Truly Grateful" from Pinkpaislee. I carefully stitched the flower with white thread and mounted the centre piece of the flower on adhesive foam for a little extra dimension.
I adhered the cut file on the colourful part of my background to make it stand out.
I put layers of tissue paper, adhesive foam and patterned papers behind my photo and adhered it on the right side of the cut file.
I fussy cut plenty of beautiful flowers and leaves from the Truly Grateful patterned papers and added them to the cut file, and around my photo.
The words of the title are stickers from the same collection.
Finally I wrote down my journaling and added the date !
This page came together easily and quickly, and that's what I like so much about cut files ! Isn't this floral cut file a pure delight ?!
I hope I have inspired you to use it in your own way !
Here are more close-ups.
Thank you so much for stopping by,
Until next time,
BEST FURRIENDS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 26, 2020 07:00
Hello crafty friends !
It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a cute layout highlighting the special bond between my little Sabrina and our dog, and I found the PERFECT JustNick Cut file for that !
I used the Cut file named "Paws to my Heart Background" that you can find in the store right here.
I've got so many photos of our dog... that as soon as I saw this in the shop, I new I had to use it !
So I started with a white cardstock background, adding just a few watercolor splatters on it in a rainbow order. I cut the cut file on white cardstock twice, to get a second layer of hearts. I backed the cut file with the beautiful paper no 06 from the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection. Then, I painted my second layer of hearts with watercolor to mimic the rainbow scheme of the patterned paper, and adhered it a little offset from the white hearts underneath. I love the result ! It's like having new embellishments, made out of the cut file..!
I added adhesive foam behind the cut file and sticked it down to my page.
I backed my photo with some tissue paper and a pink layer of another Bloom Street patterned paper and arranged it on the upper left side of the layout.
I embellished my page with other goodies from that same collection, and used a Flutter Phrase Thicker for my title.
Isn't this cut file adorable ?? I am very happy with the end result ! I hope you like it too ! Check out the JustNick store to see more amazing cut files. Trust me, you will get inspired on the spot !
Here are a ton of close-ups. Feel free to comment or ask any questions !
I wish you all a great crafty day !
Small Joys - Cathy Martin November 20, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone! It's Cathy here and I'm up on the Just Nick blog today with a layout about being grateful for the small joys in life. Sometimes when everything is getting overwhelming it's nice to take a step back and think about all the small simple things that can be enjoyed. Whether it's the crisp smell of the cool air, laying down in a beautiful pile of leaves, or wrapping up in your favorite cozy sweater, these little things that sometimes seem so silly can be a huge help in keeping you grounded.
For my layout I chose the Leaf Circle Background cut file. I loved how it could be interpreted as a leaf, or a petal, or even a feather. I cut it out of teal cardstock just for a bit of a change-up from my usual white cardstock. I backed it with paper starting from the center ring and going outwards. so that it was the same paper on each ring all the way around. I used a mixture of old and new papers to back the cut file and then it was time to decide what to do for a background paper. Originally I wanted to use a patterned paper, but after trying to decide for over an hour I gave up. I ended up finding this dark wood grain and I really liked how it paired well with the dark colors in the photo. To add a little extra detail I painted tiny white dots in acrylic paint around the outer perimeter of the cut file.
For embellishing I primarily used products from the Turn The Page collection. It paired well with the colors I was using and many of the phrases were perfect for the mood I was trying to set. I also used some wood veneers to add an earthiness to the layout and I found some older burlap embellishments from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper to top it off. I added some Heidi Swapp color shine in two different pinks to break up the large space between clusters.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my project today! I think it's important for us as memory keepers to not only document family and events, but to document our lives and our ups and downs as we go through life!
Take A Hike - Cathy Martin October 9, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone! Right now here in Canada it's our Thanksgiving, so it seemed only fitting to do a Fall inspired layout with one of Nicole's amazing Autumnal cut files! I decided to go with her file Leaf Cluster, which is one of my favorites!!! I could seriously use this file over and over again and have a different looking layout each time! I decided to go with some not so traditional fall colours that matched my photos to back my file. I didn't need to do much in the way of embellishing because the photo and cut file were definitely centre stage! I am so happy with how sweet this layout turned out, and thank you all so much for stopping by!
