JustNick Cut File Store

Paris Street Views | Marcia Dehn-Nix May 1, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. After the fire of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, I had to look over my photos again from my trip there this past October. I felt inspired to scrap one of my favorite photos of Notre Dame along with other street pics I took as we wandered around. One of my favorite ways to include multiple photos on a layout is by using a filmstrip. In this case I cut the Windowpane Background cut file apart and sized the openings so I could fit a 1.5" x 2" photo in the opening. You can make a collage of small photos and get 6 photos on a 4" x 6" print. Here I have used 5 photos on my layout and it doesn't look busy at all!

I love this Script Font  that I used for part of my title "Paris". I combined it with alpha stickers for interest.

I also love the tags in the Around the World cut file, but I've use them a lot in the past when scrapping my vacation layouts. By replacing the text in the tag with a sentiment from the Circle Sentiment cut file, I achieved a whole new look! Here is how I did it. Right click on your image and select Release Compound Path. Drag unwanted shapes/text away. Group what you want together by selecting all parts within a rectangle and then right click again and chose the Make Compound Path option. Do this with both cut files and then combine the tag with the new text, resizing the text as desired. Think about all the ways you could stretch your cut files to do double duty!! This awesome tag made a very nice frame for my photo.

I backed the negative space on my tag pulling other colors in like the yellow and the red. They are a nice contrast to the blue tag.

I think it would be fun to carry my filmstrip theme over into a two page layout. What do you think?

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

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi everyone!

Michelle here with a new layout for you today.  As you know Just Nick Studio has teamed up with Creative Scrappers with a fab sketch and cool free cut file available for you all to play along with us.  Here is the sketch:

Here is the cut file you can get for FREE using the code: CSFREE at checkout!

No purchase necessary.

Here is my take on the sketch with the cut file.

I loved using this background file and cut it out on some white cardstock before adding some wood grained paper underneath it as well.  I wanted to replicate the circles on the sketch as well and the 'circle sentiments'  cut file works perfectly as a layering element on my page.  This was such a fun cut file to use and so versatile too.  Here are some close ups:

Thanks for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!  Hope you are enjoying our team up with Creative Scrappers and I would love to see your layouts if you play along with us too!


Happy 2016! December 31, 2015 07:00

This is a bit of a dual posting for me. 

First I want to thank all my DT members this year for a blog FULL of inspiration!!! Some of our DT members are moving on, and so I want to say a big THANK YOU to each of them for their dedication and friendship this year! I hope we stay in touch.

Tomorrow we will announce our 2016 Design Team. We have so much good things in store for JustNick - I really hope you continue to visit for ideas and inspiration and a little shopping too :)

Today, I do have a project using a couple files from the store ! I wanted to do a bit of a recap project and here is what I came up with:

I used the Pebbles 2 Background layered over some white cardstock for the base of my page...you can just barely see the texture, but trust me - it is there!

Next, I added in a large title using the Outline Alphas cut file - it is really a simple design, but great for adding lots of colour to your project!

I added in a Circle Sentiment and some Ink Splats to finish off my page.

That's it for me today! Make sure you stop back in tomorrow for a list of our new DT

Happy New Year!
