Hello, Friends! Today I'm here to share a new project using the beautiful Just Nick cut files. For this layout, I was inspired by the flowers in the Wild at Heart collection, but I also wanted to include flowers cut with my Silhouette. So, I went to the shop and looked for "flowers" and I found a set that I really liked, then, I cut and backed them with some pattern papers and... this is what I created.

 Here are some close-ups:

For the title, I used the Lower Case Outline Alpha and backed it with a pattern paper from the Wild at heart collection.

I hope you liked my project and don't forget to check out the amazing cut files on the shop. I will see you the next month with more inspiration. 


You & Me July 29, 2017 07:00

Hello there!

 

I hope you all are enjoying these beautiful Summer Days (the current season here in Canada!).  After a long vacation to my native Ecuador, i am finally back home and loaded with lots of ideas, and memories to document.   For this particular picture of my cousin and my goddaughter, i used one of the newer cut files , Frilly Floral Frames, to create its soft and girly background.

 

  

 

 

My starting point was to create a grid design for the page, but once I started playing with the frames on my Silhouette software, I was drawn to the visual triangle the three frames formed around the picture.  So I went ahead, and welded the 3 frames together, to create the cut out for this page.

 

 

Once the cut out was created, i backed the flower in each corner with some of the papers from Cocoa Vanilla's Wild at Heart collection that was included in the May 2017 Clique Kits  monthly kit.

 

 

Since i wanted the layout very girly, i chose to use one of the papers from the collection as the background for the page.   The watercolor  design in the page brings the details in the white cut outs.  In addition, a layer of white vellum was added to the squares (as a layer behind the cut out) just to the sections where the square do not intersect.

 

 

 Using a paper piercing tool, a stitching guide was created around the edges of the squares. Three different color embroidery thread was used  to stitch the frames, so that they match the colors in the background paper.

 

 

 

For the title of this page, the "You Make Me Smile" cut file was used to stitch the "You & Me" sentiment to the page.  Once the stitching was completed, a bit of shimmer watercolor complete the look of the title.   This same watercolor was used to create the splatters around the page.

 

 

I really hope this inspires you to take a look at the new designs available at the Just Nick Studio store.  The versatility of each of the designs will allow you to create a one-of-a-kind project. 

 

Remember, I am a comment away if you have further questions on how this came together.

 

Thanks for stopping by today!!

 


Dude You Rock Layout by Rachel Lowe: July 24, 2017 07:00

 

Hello everyone I hope this finds you all well!

With three boys I am always on the look for boy/masculine cut files and this one is just fabulous! Ride the Wave background cut file could be used in many different ways for many different layout themes.

I have used the latest Cocoa Vanilla Studio You Rock collection and it is 100% boy!!!!

I cut the file in white cardstock. I then cut it down to 11.5 x 11.5 inches so I could add a border.

I then chose my patterned papers, co ordinating between two but so it did not look too uniform I have applied the rule of three.

To add texture to the 'waves' I have used my sewing machine to add texture and definition but I have done it in a random manner.

I then used the All Boy cut file to create my title using 'dude' cutting the outer in white cardstock and then cut the outer of the cut file in yellow. By adding a flair and a word die cut I created my title 'awesome dude you rock'.

I then had fun layering up my photo using plenty of foam tape so I could add embellishments under the layers.

 

I have then added some more machine sewing in a random messy manner.

 These cut files certainly has given this layout impact and visual interest. I love how it turned out and totally goes with my photo of my youngest boy on his skate board!

These cut files are in store now!

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon.

 


Attitude is Everything | Michelle Whorwood June 19, 2017 07:00

Hi, Michelle here with a new layout!  Today, I was assigned a 'masculine' style layout showcasing the Just Nick Cut Files.  Here is my layout. 

I generally try and use a couple of different cut files on my layouts for interest and added layering.  I really loved the background patterned by Pink Fresh Studio which dictated my colour palette for this layout.  I then cut out the Starburst file on the blue patterned paper and I just love how the file consists of both negative stars and full stars and I have backed a few of the stars with patterned paper to as well to add more pops of colour!

I next went looking for a cut file that would work as my title.  I really liked the Purrfect cut file but obviously my layout doesn't have any cats on it but the 'Attitude is everything' saying worked with my layout of my son hanging out with mates at our caravan.  I love how the Just Nick cut files really can utilised for lots of different themes not just as in this case for the felines in our lives.

I hope you have enjoyed my masculine layout today.  


Captured | Word Cut Files | Michelle Whorwood January 07, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone,

Michelle here with a new layout to share with you.  This week some of the design team have all been sharing layouts featuring 'words'.  For my layout I decided I wanted to combine several word cut files and create a wall paper effect down the right handside of my page. I did this by setting out the cut files I wanted to use on my Silhouette template as this gave me the perfect spacing for my page.

I really like using lots of words on my layout to convey the theme or feeling I have about my photo.  I first used the Marquee Alpha cut file to create the 'HELLO' and then combined it with the Girl Power cut file.   I really liked the mix of fonts and flowers on this set  so I ungrouped the file and rearranged it on my page.  I then cut it out on wood grain patterned paper and added it to my page in the negative spaces I added some embellishments to my page. I then added my photo to the left of the word wallpaper and added some more embellishments as well.

Thanks for visiting the Just Nick blog today!  I hope you have enjoyed my layout showcasing some of the word cut files in the shop - we are super lucky to have so many amazing word cut files to choose from here. 

 


XOXO by Tarrah McLean September 02, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout using one of my most favourite cut files in the Just Nick store - the XOXO background cut file!

Here is the cut file I used.....the XOXO background

I adapted this cut file a little in Silhouette Studio by taking out the 'O' inserts so that I wouldn't have to put all those pieces back in once it was cut out! I like the result without those pieces included!

I used the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Love Always' collection with this cut file....I knew the two together would look pretty.

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!

Happy cutting and creating!

Tarrah x
