Hello lovelies!  Welcome to the JustNick Studio blog today - it's Majken here with you.  This week's theme is "words".  JustNick has so many awesome words to choose from, but I ultimately chose the main word from "Bloom" to be the title of my layout with my lovely daughter when she was about three years old.  <3

Bloom

I got to dip into my new stash of Pink Paislee Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans.  I love the colors and chose a few pinks and purple papers to back the flowers in the cut file, which I cut with textured white cardstock.

I cut a few leaves from the dark green patterned paper, which you can see peeking out on the right side of the photo.  I love to combine cut files with ephemera to add dimension and contrast. I used a blender brush to spread a very light circle of Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink around where I planned to put the photo.

I resized the "bloom" word to be about 11" wide so it would serve as the "anchor" to the layout.  I also offset "bloom" so I could cut a mat slightly larger to help emphasize the title.  I used 3D foam tape to pop the title up as well.

Here is a look at the gorgeous Bloom cut file:

So glad you joined us today on the JustNick Studio blog.  Be sure to check us out on Instagram, and of course, come visit the store to see what other word cut files you can use to title your projects!

See you soon!

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. I was dog sitting for my daughter last week and she asked me to try to take some cute photos of her rescue dog Nana. This little old lady is a spitfire,so much personality in that teeny body! This photo was one of my favorites and I couldn't wait to scrap it.

I started off with a Mixed Media background page from Vicki Boutin because I loved how the yellow matched Nana's flower collar, the coral pink matched her tongue, and the peach matched her coloring. I wanted to keep those same colors as I added my embellishments and title. I cut the Mirrored Florals design from white cardstock thinking it would be a nice frame for my photo, but it covered up too much of the background. I used it instead for interest at the top and bottom of my layout. The Stencil Alphabet cut file was used for my title and each letter was cut from a variety of pattern papers, mostly from my older 6x6 paper pads. 

I used those same pattern papers plus a few more to cut a bunch of butterflies using the new Butterfly cut file. I layered a solid butterfly underneath each intricate cut butterfly and stitched the layers together using my sewing machine. This gave my butterfly antennae and trailing strands to give my butterflies motion.

I also added some flowers from the Bloom and Stems cut files to create flowers to match the one in Nana's collar.

I just love how this layout turned out!

Here are the cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. I have a fun Spring mixed media layout to share with you. I am in dire need of warmer weather. We got snow dumped on us again a few days ago... it still hasn't melted either. So I decided to create my own sunshine in my scrapbook room on this layout.

I had a lot of fun creating a rainbow mixed media background to coordinate with the papers I used to back the flowers in the beautiful Spring Floral Cluster 3 digital cut file. Isn't this floral cluster amazing!

For my title, I used the new Bloom digital cut file. It was perfect to coordinate with  my Spring floral cluster.

There is just something about a mixed media background that makes a cut file pop! Here are the digital cut files I used today...

I hope you are enjoying some warm Spring weather. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week!

Hello! thank you so much for joining me today! It's Leslie on the blog today.
I am going to be using the beautiful Bloom cut file today.
Some of you might notice that it is the same cut file I used a few weeks ago. I did this so that you can see just how versatile the cut files are, and that you can use the same cut file in many different ways. Last time I backed the cut file flowers and layered them above some fussy cut flowers. This week I used the cut files just as they are, I did not back them, I cut them out of plan white card stock and layered them behind and around fussy cut flowers and my photo. 
The collection I used matches the cut file flowers perfectly, Webster's Pages, Love is in the air. It almost looks like the cut file was made for this collection and the flowers that are in the collection. As always, I did a lot of fussy cutting and situated the fussy cut floral clusters in adjacent corners of the layout. I used the Cut file flowers to join the two corners. I added some very faint black Heidi Swapp black color Shine for some extra interest. 
Here are some close ups...
Here is the final layout...
I hope that this inspired you to use a cut file more than once and to know that you can use cut files in many different ways!

Enjoy!

Hello JustNick fans! It's Monique here today sharing a fun (spring) family layout using two of the fabulous new March cut files: Bloom and Floral Grouping 1

Here's the layout I created using the Pretty Little Studio collection XOXO:

and these are the cut files:

Bloom:

Floral Grouping 1:

Aren't these cut files beautiful?! I cut the "Floral Grouping 1" from both white cardstock and from a piece of patterned paper, the white one slighter larger than the colored one. I placed these on top of each other to create extra depth and added the matted photo on top. 

I also cut two flowers from the "Bloom" cut file from patterned paper and some leaves from white cardstock and adhered the flowers on top of the photo in the bottom left corner and in the top right corner. The leaves I slid under the photo also in the top right corner.

And an extra close-up:

I really love how delicate these flowers are and how super easy they cut! 

If you're looking for some beautiful spring cut files or any other cut file, then make sure to visit the JustNick store and take a look at all the fabulous designs. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, wishing you happy scrapping!
