Hello JustNick friends happy Friday!

Today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout for you using two JustNick cut files.

I firstly resized the Flowers in Bloom background cut file down to fit my intended 8.5x11 inch layout cut in white cardstock.  I have used Flourish collection by Crate Paper. I chose a ombré paper so the blooms have varying colours for impact. You could individually  back your blooms in different colours/patterns if you do not have such a paper.

I then created a polaroid frame from a paper piece and added black machine sewing around the edge. I then attached my photo.

I used the Blessed cut file from card sentiments 3 to create my title and cut it in black cardstock and attached.

I then added some of the gorgeous embellishments from the collection. I wanted to ensure there was balance between my background and embellishments so was careful to not over dot it and make my layout too busy.

Here are some close up photos of this layout.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful creative week!

Hello JustNick Studio friends! For those in the USA, I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving.

It's Marcia here today with a November gratitude layout. Sometimes we need to step back and reflect on all the things we are so blessed to have, especially our loved ones. The Card Sentiment 3 digital cut file is great for creating a scrapbook title that says just that. Here is my layout...

I thought it would be fun to use the Cloud Background 2 digital cut file since my nephew seems to have his head in the clouds, lol. I saved the negative space clouds and used one on top of my photo to keep the cloud repetition going...

I felt like I still needed something to the right of my photo to balance out the clouds. I had a stem from the Stems digital cut file that I had previously cut out and it was just what I needed.

I love the mixed fonts in this cut file. They make this scrapbook title look so much more interesting.

Here are the digital cut files I used today...

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!


Thank you cards | Zsoka Marko November 24, 2017 07:00

Hi there friends,

This week we are focusing on Thanksgiving at Just Nick! Since we do not celebrate it here in Europe, I thought I could create a bunch of Thank You cards instead of a layout! These always come in handy anyway right?

I selected a few cut files with this theme as well as some florals and butterflies, because well, I love them...When I was little my parents' botanist friend thought I'd become one too (botanist that is), I was so interested in flowers. I even got a book from her called Zsofi's garden - it was the most similar name to mine that she could find :). At some point I did want to become a florist, but in the end that did not happen.

The cut files I chose for my cards are the following:

 

 

I cut out all shapes from textured white card stock. On my first card I backed the oval wreath with some patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection (all supplies I used for these cards are from this collection). I then added some foam to the back so it pops off the card. I created a 4x6" card base with two different patterned papers, then glued the wreath on top. I added Grateful and completed my sentiment with For you using the gold puffy alpha stickers. I fussy cut two butterflies from one of the papers and glued them down on top of the wreath. I also used a third butterfly; this one is a chipboard piece.

I created another 4x6" card base using patterned papers. I backed a few of the flowers from the Floral and Fauna cut file set. Some I didn't back. I layered these on top of each other randomly, to give my card an airy feel. I glued Thanks in the middle of my card and completed the sentiment using stickers. As a finishing touch I added a few enamel dots.

My third card design is also on a 4x6" base. I cut part of the Delicate butterflies cut file and backed these with patterned paper. I glued Thankful at the bottom and hand stitched around the letters to give them more definition and texture. I added two stickers to finish off my card.

That's it for today! I hope you like my cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thankful for You Layout and card by Rachel Lowe: November 22, 2017 07:00

I love owls and this owl cut file is just so cute! I have used Bella BLVD Mind Your Manners collection to create my layout. I cut my owl with white card stock and then ungrouped the owl and used patterned paper to fill my owl. To finish it off I have machine sewn the wings.

I then chose the Card Sentiments 3 for my title and a card I knew I wanted to also make.

I decided to make a shaker pocket using vellum on the lower half of my layout. They are simple to make, cut your vellum paper the same size as your background paper, sew around the three edges leaving the top open. Add your sequins or similar (I have also add some small cork hearts) and then sew up the top.

 

I then added a bright coloured patterned paper piece to the top of my layout ensuring it covers the top of the vellum. I added a scallop border also between the pattern paper and vellum. I then attached my owl with foam tape. I then tucked my photo slightly under the owl. I have used the Thankful card sentiment enlarging.

I have added some typed journalling and finished my layout off adding a die cut owl and word sticker bottom right of the layout.

Now its time to shake!!!!!!!

I have used the exact same process to make my card just on a smaller scale. I have used the Grateful card sentiment and added inside my card. I used brighter coloured sequins on my card and added a die cut flower inside. My sequins are from Speigelmom Scraps and they are just gorgeous.

 

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful scrappy week!

Happy fall, ya'll!!

It's my favorite time of year, and there is no shame in my game when it comes to letting anyone and everyone know. Today's project features a photo of a bunch of small pumpkins that my neighbor brought over last week . . . because she knows I love this time of year.

This layout uses the Card Sentiments 3, Leaf Cluster 2, and Stems 5 cut files that are available in the JustNick Shop.

To begin, I used a piece of transparency paper to print a copy of the photo used on the layout. I love using different types of paper/mediums when creating with cut files.

There is a bit of trial and error involved with printing and cutting with transparencies, and You Tube is a great resource for finding tutorials. I ended up using washi tape to attach the transparency to a piece of copy paper so my printer would feed properly.

The finished photo was about 8 x 8, which was the perfect size for my title and stems.

The base of the layout is white card stock that I first prepped with Vicki Boutin matte acrylic gel. Once dry, I used Prima metallic watercolors to paint the card stock and add splatters

Next, I used patterned papers from Jen Hadfield's Warm and Cozy collection to cut several of the leaf clusters and stems. These were layered under my photo using Mono adhesive and foam squares for added dimension.

 

At the top of the layout I used more stems and leaf clusters to create a visual line across the page. I added a die cut from the same Jen Hadfield collection, Echo Park enamel dots, and white thread.

I also added the same white thread and more embellishments around the photo along with additional enamel dots.

The title was last and I added an arrow sticker beneath it to give it more weight.

The finished layout has so, so much dimension and I love the unique aspect of the transparency paper.

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to visit the JustNick shop for these and many other beautiful cut files.


greetings! April 27, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hello Diana here today...  Oh, how I LOVE to make cards!  I was super excited to see that Nicole added some super cute and FUN cut files for cards.  The cards I made were super simple and QUICK:

 The new cut file I used is called Card Sentiments 3:

For each greeting I sized the cut to 3.75"x 5",  and cut them out of kraft card stock.  I then painted each greeting with water color, backed it with fun pattern paper and embellished finally adhering to a card base.  Think it took me like 30 minutes tops--SUPER quick for me!  (it also helps when you have a vision of where you want to go!)

Here is each card up close:

We would LOVE to see your creations using the JustNick Studio cuts.  Please feel free to share them on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram with @justnickstudio.

 


This Makes Me Happy April 21, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone,

Melissa here with a page that has one of the most adorable photos ever. My friend, Kirsten, lets me scrap all her adorable family photos and share them on the interwebs. What a privilege it is to have these awesome photos and I love sending the finished pages to her. Thankfully, we have similar styles so, I get to scrap them any way I want. :)

Anyway, let's move on to chatting about the cut files I used and how this baby came together!

Look at that squishy baby face!!! 

Okay, focus on the cut files Melissa.

I absolutely LOVE Nicole's modern style cut files and this Graphic Background immediately caught my attention. I knew I wanted to do something with it straight away, on a page. I chose to use a subtle yellow paper and gradually utilize color to bring the focus on that adorable photo. Seriously. Adorable. I want to kiss that smooshy face, too.

Ack. Focus! 

With this page, I committed to placing the background down right away. I usually don't do that as I like to test out layering and such first. But this one, I knew it was what I wanted so, I did it and there was no turning back!

When I layer, I like to alternate calm/muted and bold colors. That way, I can create some dimension, my title work will stand out more and the focus lands on the photo. 

I incorporated a frame, from the Card Sentiments 3, file as part of the title. I trimmed a part of the word away from the frame so I could tuck the photo under it a little bit. It's those little details that can really compliment the page. Also, I've had that metal clip in my stash forEVER. Finally got to use it and stitch it down to anchor the frame.

Then, the rest of the page just came together. A little cluster here and a little cluster there. I always like to leave a little bit of room for my friend to journal on her pages as she sees fit. I think there is the perfect little space under the blue frame to add a little note about her cutie, squishy, adorable family.

Here are a few more close ups before I leave you today.

Love the cut files I used today! Go grab them in the shop!
