Bring on Summer | Monique Liedtke August 07, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique again with another Summer layout using the "Bring on Summer" cut files and the Sunshine & Happiness collection from Simple Stories. We have been having a couple of exceptionally warm and dry weeks here in The Netherlands and that called for lots of ice cream eating!

Here's a layout I made using a photo of the boys and I having an ice cream on our walk through the city centre here in Delft. There's this lovely Italian ice cream shop in the market square where we love to try all the different flavors they sell (which are many!).

I just love all the different cut files in the "Bring on Summer" set and used both the sun, the ice cream and the words.

Bring on Summer

The reason I chose this cut file set was the ice cream cut file of course. I cut the cone once, but the ice cream ball three times. I placed the ice cream balls on top of each other and machine stitched them together: 

Next I cut out the sun, adhered this behind the ice cream and stitched between the rays:

I matted the photo and adhered it on top of the ice cream. I cut out the title "Bring on Summer" and stapled it on top of the ice cream & photo: 

I decorated the rest of the layout with lots of die-cuts, chipboard shapes, stickers and stamps and wrote a bit of journaling in the bottom right corner and was done! 

I had so much fun creating this, hope you like it too!

Thank you so much for stopping by! And if you're looking for this cut file or for other summer cut files then please hop over to the JustNick shop! 

Have a great day!


One Hot Mess | Niki Rowland July 11, 2018 07:00

Hi Just Nick Fans! I'm Niki (@nikiclaire on Instagram) and I'm delighted to be back on the Just Nick team for another year.
I live in the UK with my husband and two children, Sophie aged 7 and Max aged 5 who are often the subject of my scrapbook layouts. I'm also due to have another baby, a boy, in 5 weeks time who will also, no doubt, be documented in great detail on my layouts too :)
I scrapbook nearly every day and love to use large bold elements on my layouts. I love bright colours and love to pile on the embellishments to create an interesting and dimensional look. I'm never fussy about what products I use and love to be challenged and the more random the better!
For this layout I decided to document the heat wave we are having in the UK at the moment - this is quite a rare occurance and at 32 weeks pregnant (when the photo was taken), I'm struggling a bit to cope with the heat and it just feels like it is never going to end! We aren't used to super hot temperatures in the UK so don't have any air conditioning so at the moment I really am one hot mess!!!
I used the swirly sun from the Summer cut file which I cut really big from white card. I then mounted this, raised up on foam pads, onto a patterned paper background - something that is a little out of my comfort zone as I usually go for white backgrounds.
The swirly sun was acts as the background to my layout and I then built a photo cluster on top over to the left side. I added chipboard triangles in between each of the sunrays for extra effect.
I added my title and another embellishment cluster on the right side to balance out the photo cluster and handwrote my journaling around the middle swirly part of the sun cut file.
Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you've enjoyed meeting me and seeing my layout. Happy scrapping xx

Trio of Cards | Jaclyn Rench June 27, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  I'm sharing a trio of cards I've made featuring some of my favorite new designs in the cut shop!

The first card features the Bring on Summer cut file, most specifically that yummy little ice cream cone that's included.  A single dip simply wouldn't allow for much color for the focal point of my card, so I duplicated the 'ice cream scoop' portion of the design to create a whopping four dip cone - cutting each dip from a different color of paper! 

I used a few sweet embellishments to really make my ice cream cone special.  To finish off the card, I paired the cute cone with a thank you sentiment, but this design would also work well with a sweet birthday greeting. 

My next card uses three of the cactus designs from the Cactus Jack file. These quirky cacti look so cute when sized down to fit a card front and cut from subtle patterned papers.  I offset the solid portion of my cut design to enhance the funky feel of these little guys and dressed them up with a few diecut flowers.  I didn't have a stamped sentiment that I liked for this card, so I simply printed my own on a tiny little jewelry tag - I love the playful feel it adds!

My final card uses the beautiful Boho Floral file.  These pretty flowers are a gorgeous compliment to a encouragement and/or sympathy greeting.  I used three different shades of pink patterned papers to back the flower portion of the design, and a pretty minty green for the leaves.  I sized and cut a label from Labels One to house my stamped sentiment and adhered it with foam adhesive to make stand out against the florals.

 I had so much fun making this cute trio. Thanks for joining me and Happy Crafting!
