JustNick Cut File Store

Hello everybody, 
Today I am back with a new layout where I've experimented a new technique : The hand stitching. I was loving so much layout with stitched elements but as I did not have any stitching machine and I have never stitched anything in my life I was lost ahah ! So I decided to watch tutorials on Youtube and to try it out ! 
It takes me so long but I love how it turned out ! I've started by cutting with my silhouette some borders from "borders 1" cut file to make my background. 
 Then, I stitched some lines on and between my borders of different length and I added a bit of ink and my background was done. 
For my title I used the "hand cut letters 2" cut file. I love the design of the letters so fun ! I backed them with the same papers I used for the borders. 
As embellishments I used the simple and sweet collection, I thought that it was the perfect collection for my photo. I placed a touch of paper at the top of my layout, I love doing this at the moment I find that it adds something. Then a little stamping as usual under my tittle and it's done ! 

 

And you, do you make hand stitching on your layout ? I hope that you have enjoyed  xx

Hello, hello JustNick fans. I'm so very excited to join you today with my very first layout on the JustNick Design Team!!  I downloaded my first JustNick cutfile two days after Nicole created her store a little over 3 years ago.  I had been a fan of her free designs for awhile, so I was thrilled to see her open her shop, and I can't wait to share projects with you all.

Our first share is an About Me page, so I'll start with a quick intro.  I've been crafty all my life!  I started using stamps around 1989 and scrapbooking in 1999, so I've seen a lot of trends and changes in the industry, including my own style.  My day job is marketing for a software company, and besides papercrafting, I adore chocolate, reading, and watching movies and the Houston Astros.  I live in Katy, Texas with my husband, Tim, two kiddos, and kitty Oreo.  

Okay, on to the layout!  

I used the Live Love cutfile to cut three 3" circles using Simple Stories I Am.  I used white gesso to prep my cardstock before swirling Distress Oxide ink slightly larger than my circles and spritzing different inks.  I added stitching after it dried then popped up my cut circles with foam tape.

I also used the Borders 1 cutfile to create a little interest on the right side of my photo.

I typed out five things about me currently for my journaling.

I love the feel a little mixed media gave my cut files and page, and I hope you are inspired to stop by the JustNick store for these cut files and many others!

Have a crafty weekend!

Hello friends! Happy National Scrapbook Day. It's design team member Lee-Anne here sharing a layout I created combining two Just Nick cut files to make an entirely new design.

In Silhouette Studio, the software for Silhouette Cameo, I ungrouped or released the compound path and traced one of the heart designs (the top right heart) of the Basic Hearts cut file and enlarged it. I also traced the Borders 1 cut file, replicated it three times, one below the other, widened it slightly and placed it on top of the heart shape, grouped it and clicked "merge". This creates a heart shaped outline with the Borders 1 cut file filling the inside of the heart shape. I grouped the two design together and clicked "crop". This puts the two designs together. I cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo on white card stock and backed it with patterned papers. 

With several colors of embroidery floss, I decided to hand stitch some plus signs for texture around the layout and around the heart I hand stitched and alternated colors that coordinated with the papers.


Combining cut files into one cut file is a fun technique and you can get very creative. I encourage you to give this a try with any two cut files in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

Hi everyone, 

This week we are sharing projects using FOUR cut files! I loved this challenge. I loved going through all the beautiful designs when choosing what would work best for my layout. I also kept in mind that a cut file doesn't have to remain in it's original state. :) You'll see what I mean in a minute. But, first, let me share with you my page:

If you have followed me at all here, it should be no surprise that background cut files are my favorite. I absolutely love using them to showcase lots of color and pattern. It really does help with adding other embellishments because there isn't much else that needs to be done!

I also used a scallop border cut file but, I trimmed it down to fit over and ground the clipboard for my journaling.

I used two different texts. Well, one is text and the other is an alpha set cut file. LOVE the alpha! So fun and unique.

Design wise, I tried something with layering my title over the text 'captured'. It worked! I really like how it turned out and you can still read the words but, not be overwhelmed.

I say, the more cut files the better! Layer them on! Trim and re-purpose! Have fun! Now, go grab some cut files and challenge yourself to using 4! Or 5... or 6... 

Cut files used: Starburst Background 1, Borders 1, Capture This, Handcut Letters
