JustNick Cut File Store

12 Days of Giveaways - Day 10 | HOHOHO2 | Nathalie DeSousa December 10, 2021 07:00 1 Comment


Hello there!

Welcome to Day 10 of Just Nick Studio's 12 Days of Giveaways. We are so close to finishing12 days of free cut files, and today  is my turn to share the day's free cut file, "HOHOHO 2 "



I love the simple, but fun design on the letters! Perfect for  a new page in my December Daily album.   



I am all about large titles as focal points, and during December, I tend to print large photos.  So, enlarging the cut file seemed like a great idea to balance the page.



I used an offset function to create an outline around the original cut file, then set the original lines of the cut file to be perforated, while set the cut files to the newly formed offset.



I then used three different metallic embroidery floss colors ( gold, silver and Shimmer white) to create the embroider lines throughout the letters.   I backed the cut out with vellum and set it on the patterned paper (CVS - Joyful Collection).    Just a few extra embellishments and I will add the journaling under the small photo of my Goddaughters.



Remember to check the HOHOHO 2 cut file at the shop today, and added it to your cart.  Cannot wait to see what you create with it!


This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December 8,2021 at midnight CST.

No purchase necessary. The correct cut file must be loaded to the cart in order for discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.


Have a great Holiday Season!



Sweet child o'mine by Valeska Guimaraes August 30, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new layout using a lot of new awesome cut files from JustNick store.

I used the Retro Screen for the background, and for the title I used Upper Case Funky Alpha and Lower Case Funky Alpha. The collection I used is Legendary from Cocoa Vanilla Studios, and I also used some acrylic embellishments from Thata Scrapbook & Papelaria, a brand from Brazil.

For this project, I made some experiment. I cut the retro screen cut file out of  gray cardstock and I used the rest of the background cut paper as a stencil on my yellow patterned paper and white acrylic paint to make like a shadow under my cut file on gray paper. I did the same with the title.

For my title, I used the alphabets to create my words. First, I cut the words out of a patterned paper, then I made a outline cut with gray cardstock. Glued both and I place it with 3D foam stickers to give some popped effect.

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments because I really wanted to focus on my cut files.

Hope you enjoyed it and get inspired to experiment new techniques in your projects. There are so many beautiful possibilities to use cut files.

Check out the new releases in the JustNick store.

Thank you for stopping by.


Summer Vacation | Valeska Guimaraes July 14, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new 12x12 layout with two beautiful cut files  available in the JustNick store. 

Summer is already here and we are so excited about it, are you?

I combined two new designs in this layout.

One of them is the Makin Waves cut file that I use in the whole page and the other one is Hello Summer 2  for my title.

First of all, I made a watercolor background in a white cardstock and let it dry.

Then I cut my waves from another white cardstock and cut the same design again from a patterned paper but in this time I used the offset tool of my Studio Program in 0.2 cm distance. This allowed me to increase the margin of the design and achieve this outline effect in the white cut out.

Then, I glued the white cut out in the patterned paper cut out. With some of the cut outs from the patterned paper that were loose, I added some 3d foam adhesive to create some dimension in my layout, and curled the ends of the cut outs giving it more movement.

I stitched around the circle and started to added some die cuts flowers and others embellishments. I used Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and an acrylic sun glasses from Thata Scrapbooking.

Then I used the new Hello Summer 2 to create a title in the middle of my page. I separated the cut file with the release compound path tool in my Studio Program and made two cuts from it. One of them I cut from an offset from a vellum paper and the other one, I cut the title from a stripe patterned paper.

Hope you enjoy and create beautiful projects with the new JustNick summer designs available in the store. Every week there are new cut files for you to be inspired by.

Have a wonderful week.

Good Vibes Layout | Nicole Kerr July 2, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout that I created using three new cut files that will be released and available tomorrow, July 3rd! There are so many possibilities for summer layouts that you don't want to miss them!
The new files that I used are:
I began my layout by cutting the radical background on white paper.  I cut it in half to make it look more like a sun. My initial thought was to just use it as a stencil with my distress inks, but once I applied those inks, I love the cutout as much as the back ground! I added foam adhesive behind the cutfile and glued it to my background paper. I love the dimension this gives!
I then used some watercolors from my stash in two shades of blue to paint the bottom portion of my page to look like the water in the pool.  I used the Hey Fishies cutfile and added three fish to the bottom part of the page. I watercolored these little cuties a shimmery gold.
For my title, I used the "good vibes" cutfile.  I cut this phrase three times on white cardstock and glued all three layers together.  It gives it more of a chipboard type of feel and is a lot sturdier when added to all of the layers. With all of the other colors going on, I decided to leave this plain white for a pop of clean and bright white.
For my photos, I used three of my son swimming in the pool when we took a four day vacation in June. He is my little fish and this spread was perfect to document this moment! I used the new Cocoa Vanilla Sunkissed collection to embellish my photos with florals, clear stickers, puffy stickers and even some tangled thread.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
Don't forget to set those alarms and come back tomorrow to grab all three of these new cut files!

Sunshine Memories | Majken Pullin February 24, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you again today, and I'm sharing a spring layout because that's what I'm dreaming of now!  I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the Floral Swag 3 cut file, and it is just lovely.  Here is the full layout:

Sunshine Memories

After I cut out Floral Swag 3 from white textured cardstock, I chose to back it with Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream - the colors are so dreamy and sweet!

I chose the watercolor background paper for a soft background for Floral Swag 3, and I used 3D foam tape to pop up the backed cut file so that I could layer some floral ephemera behind it and on top of it for dimension.

I used typed journaling strips for my journaling.

For my title, I used some Thickers and some script alpha from Pinkfresh Studio.

And for a pop of color, I had to use one of those lovely puffy corduroy hearts!

Here's a look at the cut file used on my layout today:

Floral Swag 3

JustNick Studio has a lot of gorgeous floral swag cut files to choose from! When you use one on your crafty project, don't forget to tag us on Instagram #justnickstudio.

Have a wonderful day,

Hi everyone, it's Vicki back with you today after a bit of a break due to medical reasons. I am so happy to be back and playing with the gorgeous cut files that I've missed so much. This layout is made using a brand new cut file.



It's called Floral Umbrella and can be found in store here.



I started by backing the cutfile with various papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Happiness collection. I didn't do all of the flowers because I wanted some to reveal the mixed media beneath them.



The used the packaging technique to add some mixed media using some Lindy's Magicals beneath the cut file.



I added in my photo and some fussy cut butterflies to the layout. Then finished off with some nuvo drops to emulate enamel dots and a puffy sticker title.



I hope you find some inspiration from my layout. Remember you can find all JustNick files in the store here. Until next time....


Together | Vicki Parker October 3, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki with you again and today I have a layout using the Big Wheel cut file.



It looks like this and can be found in the store here.



I started by using some Cocoa Vanilla Unforgettable collection and backing the circles with spokes with different papers. For the open circles, I decided to paint the cut out with some Shimmerz and add them back into the open circles. I used the same paint to add some colour underneath the large wheels on the cut file.




I popped the cut file up on foam to add some extra dimension before adding a few embellishments around the photo and the circles. I layered the photo with some paper and vellum and finally added an acrylic title from Bramble Fox.



I am so happy with the final layout, I hope you find inspiration from it. Until next time....


Memories | Vicki Parker September 30, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout using the gorgeous Leafy Floral cut file, the Cocoa Vanilla Unforgettable collection and some Shimmerz.



I started by cutting the Leafy Florals which you can find in the store here on white cardstock.



I had the idea to layer it on top of the wreath paper in the unforgettable collection to add lots of dimension. I painted it using some Shimmerz paints in coordinating colours.



I added some Shimmerz behind the photo which is layered on some papers from the collection to extend the colour around the layout.



I used foam pads to lift the cut file off the page to give it prominence and added some further florals and butterflies around the page. I am so happy with how it turned out - I hope it gives you some inspiration. Until next time...

Family Love | Maryám Pérez February 8, 2018 07:00

Hello Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new layout using JustNick cut files. Since this is the love week at the blog I decided to use the Heart Background 5 cut file and a photo of my family.

This layout was really easy to do. First of all, I sent my cut file through my Silhouette Cameo and then I backed all of the hearts with some pattern papers. After that, I added a few embellishments but not too much because I wanted to keep the cut file as my main element.

Here are some close-ups:

That is for today. I hope you liked this layout. Let me know if you have any question. And as always say, don’t forget to visit the shop for more amazing cut files... and if you need inspiration check out the other posts on the blog!
Have a wonderful day.

Shaker Cards | Maryám Pérez January 22, 2018 07:00

Hello Friends! Maryám here with you to share two shaker cards that I created using Bamboo Background and Lazy Daisies.

For today's cards, I'm using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Bohemian Dream collection. I had the perfect sequins to match the collection so that's why I decided to use it.

For the first card, I used the Bamboo background. I modified it a little bit because I needed to fit it in a 4,75 x 5" cardstock. Once I have it cut, I backed it with an acetate sheet and then I added some foam dots and of course a bunch of sequins too.

For the second card, I used the Lazy Daisies set. I picked one flower and then I put it three times into the piece of white cardstock. Once I had them cut, I did the same as the first card but using other colors of sequins and embellishments.

Here is another close-up of both cards.

I hope you liked these cards I shared today. Let me know if you have any questions. And don't forget to check out the shop for more beautiful cut files. 

Have a wonderful week!

Sixteen | Maryám Pérez January 11, 2018 07:00

Hello Friends! Maryám here to share with you a new layout using awesome cut files from the JustNick Shop.

For this layout, I used two cut files. I started with Butterfly Background. I opened it in Photoshop and with the eraser tool, I deleted all the butterflies except for one. I chose one in black because I wanted to cut an easy shape. Once I had all my butterflies already cut I decided that I wanted to add a little bit of dimension to the page so I took two butterflies and I adhered them together so in that way I can fold the first one. After that, I added some hand stitching because why not?! Then I added all of the embellishments but I was feeling that it needed something else so I decided to cut a few flowers from the Lazy Daisies Set and then I added enamel dots in the center on each one.

And here is my layout:

I hope you liked this page. Let me know if you have any questions. Don’t forget to visit the shop because there are more amazing cut files waiting for you.

Until next time.

Fab Paris layout by Rachel Lowe: October 19, 2017 07:00

Hello everyone and welcome to another layout using JustNick Studio Fab cut files!

I am a fan of butterflies and blooms ( which I have to moderate somewhat!), today I have a layout using both butterflies and florals.

Here are the two cut files I used.

And here is my layout! I have scrapped this gorgeous photo of my daughter in Paris, her and I went on a mother/daughter trip to Europe back in 2014, we certainly made some wonderful memories.

I have used a new mini collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio One in a Million. I cut my beautiful butterflies in patterned paper and then added zig zag sewing machine to the centre of each butterfly.

I then cut doodle flower circle in white card stock and placed over my butterflies slightly off centre and then added machine sewing around the edge.

I then added my photo again off centre in the flower circle, this to give a cascading effect from the top left of the page to the bottom right of the page.

Then I added die cut flowers from the collection and FAB card as my title which I added by typing the words Paris 2014.

I finished this layout off adding some banners and more sewing.

Here are some close up photos for you.

I do love pretty and these cut files certainly are pretty! Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon X

Love you | Zsoka Marko September 26, 2017 07:00

Hi there scrappy friends,

Zsoka here with you today with a new layout.

I chose the Graphic Background cut file for this. I have used this cut file before, but not in a long time, so I thought why not use it again?

I went with white card stock again, like most of the time... I picked the wonderful Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection for this layout. I love this navy floral paper and I thought the white cut file looks great on it. I stitched down each part of the cut file with navy thread to add some interest.

I placed my photo a bit off center, to the right, and layered a few pieces of die cuts, chipboard frame and tissue paper behind it. 

Then I started embellishing. I wanted to keep all embellishments around the photo so that most of the background is still visible.  I added lots of die cut flowers; some of them I glued down with liquid glue, others I popped up with foam adhesive to create dimension. I really love dimension on my layouts! I also used flair buttons, stickers, chipboard pieces and some resin flowers from one of the earlier Cocoa Vanilla collections. I think those are my favorites, so cute right?
I know the title is not very original, but I love the way these big chipboard letters look and well this title does fit my photo so why not? With the amount of layouts I make it's hard to come up with creative titles, especially ones that are short (because I prefer them short). So I end up with a lot of Sweet, Cute, Love, Awesome etc titles I'm afraid, especially if the photo just captures a candid moment, not any special event.

Other than the stitching, which took a bit of time, this layout came together very quickly, which is unusual for me! I really like how it turned out, I hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time,

You make me happy | Maryám Pérez September 9, 2017 07:00

Hello, friends! Maryám here to share with you a layout using the beautiful "Behold Beauty" Cut file. As soon as I saw it I knew I will use it, but I was waiting for the perfect collection and it was... the Wild at Heart from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I used the flower cut file as the main element of my layout, and I put cocoa vanilla die-cuts around it, also I fussy cut some butterflies from one of the papers. At the end, I add my picture and the journaling and that is it!

Here is my final result:


Here are some close-ups:

I hope you liked my layout! Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a wonderful day!

A Different kind of School Layout - Rachel Lowe August 26, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick friends, today I have a school layout for you, well kind of!

I am not a fan of school photos I have to admit and with four children at different schools and therefore different coloured uniforms there is no way I am going to find a paper collection to deal with that dilemma lol!

Each year I go on the hunt for cool and unique school bag for my youngest (the older ones won't let me anymore) and so I decided to scrap this memory and the 2017 bag which I think is super cute!

I love geometric shapes and cut files on boy layouts and so this cut file was the perfect choice!

I have used a mixture of collections and gorgeous bits and pieces from my stash. I have gone for a minimalistic look to add to the dramatic effect of the cut file and the selected triangles I chose to back with patterned paper.

I have sewn randomly on the cut file to add definition. As you can see I chose well placed triangles to accomodate my photo placement and visual impact.

How cute is the bag! I love bears and I love this colour combination and hence why I kept it going through out my layout. I have journaled the little story behind this layout and added in a way I could embellish around so it became more of a feature than an after thought.

I have added wood veneer pieces in keeping with my theme, and oh how cute is the wooden bear! As always I have foam taped certain elements on page to add height and interest. I ted to always do this with paper stickers as I find them too flat for my liking.

I have finished this layout off with some enamel crosses, dots and puffy sticker arrow.

Here are some close up photos for you:


I enjoy being challenged with themed layouts and then thinking out side the square and adding a twist and that is what this layout is all about, a school layout with a twist!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and see you all soon!



Sisters | Maryám Pérez August 14, 2017 07:00

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.


Lower Case Outline Alpha | Lazy Daisies

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. 

Some close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my masculine layout today.  

Captured | Word Cut Files | Michelle Whorwood January 7, 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. 

Some close ups

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 2, 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
