Merry Memories | Winter Florals 4 cut file | Sophie Delorme December 23, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s almost Christmas!!

 

Sophie with you today sharing a Christmassy layout of my daughter and our dog next to our Christmas tree!

 

 

I used the Winter Florals 4 cut file for this page, that I cut several times in different sizes on white textured cardstock.

 

 

I also used a beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Christmas collection from last year.

 

I centered my two black and white photos in a vertical line and built around them.

 

 

I teared a few big chunk of patterned papers on both sides of the page and clustered the cut files in the center, around my photos. I mounted the beautiful poinsettias on adhesive foam and a few of the branches as well.

 

 

I decorated the page with cardstock stickers and plenty of Pinkfresh Studio Crystal gems.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope this was inspiring for you!

 

I wish you a wonderful holiday season full of good times with your loved ones!

Christmas Joy | 12 Days of Givaways !!! | Sophie Delorme December 11, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

 

Hello JustNick friends and welcome to day 11 of the JustNick 12 Days of Giveaways 2021!

 

Sophie here sharing my layout created with the free cut file of the day: Winter Floral Ring!

 

 

 

I cut it twice on white cardstock. I backed the berries and most of the leaves of the wreath with papers from the Felicity Jane Bella collection and machine stitched on the stems with white thread. I adhered the floral ring on a soft pink plain paper and cut the outside excess so that the pink paper would show only on the inside of the wreath.

 

 

I mounted everything on adhesive foam and placed it on the center of a 10 inches square thick white cardstock, which was stitched down on a 12x12 plaid black and white patterned paper.

 

I placed my black and white photo and a journaling card on the center of the wreath, added my title and a few beautiful embellishments around them.

 

 

I created a little cluster on the bottom right of the page with a paper strip, a label, a few hearts and a piece of the same Winter Floral Ring cut file mounted on adhesive foam.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and added a few black Nuvo Cristal drops as the finishing touch!

 

Here are more close-ups:

12 Days of Giveways Day 4 | Patricia Roebuck December 4, 2021 06:00 4 Comments

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, JustNick Giveaways
Welcome to the 12 Days of Giveaways here at JustNick Studio.  I'm excited to be sharing Day 4 using the adorable new My GHOmies cut file!
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveways, My GHomies, Christmas, Patricia Roebuck, 6x8 Layout, Pocket Page
I went with a vintage style pattern paper and then pulled in more coordinating colors from chipboard and solid cardstock.  I used a mix of pattern papers and solid cardstock to back each gnome.  Oh, these little guys are fun.  So many looks to give them.  Traditional Christmas colors in the bright red and green would be adorable too.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveways, My GHomies, Christmas, Patricia Roebuck, 6x8 Layout, Pocket Page
I used lots of leftovers from my stash that continued to bring in the GHOmie's woodland look.  The wood frame was from the 'winter time' and more Light Chipboard pieces that I trimmed away from it.  I loved how they gave the postcard feeling with the added 'winter time' there in the corner.  So that is what inspired my title.

My chipboard banner isn't Christmas colors, but it goes with the more vintage Christmas colors, and added to my cute gnomes.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveways, My GHomies, Christmas, Patricia Roebuck, 6x8 Layout, Pocket Page
I needed to add some journaling, so I made one decorative 3x4 from the same pattern paper used on the gnomes, and then a pre-made card, that I just typed onto and then added a foam sticker to coordinate with my colors.

12 Days Of Giveaways | Christmas Tree Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez December 3, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

 

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! Christmas is here and with it the 12 Days Of Giveaways! So to make this layout I used the giveaway cut file for today and the Warm Wishes collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The giveaway cut file for today is the Holiday Bough.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut file four times. I didn’t do mixed media because I wanted the cut file to show up and be the star of the layout.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut files and my photo. Then, I fussy cut some flowers from one of the papers of the collection and glued them on top of the cut files.

 

To finish my layout I added the title, ephemera, stickers and gold splatters.

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired to create beautiful things! Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

This offer is only valid until midnight CTS on Friday, December 3rd 2021 at midnight. 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 lovely day!

Love This Changing Season | Patricia Roebuck November 30, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  We are headed into the Holiday season and today I have an 8.5x11 layout inspired by the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas using the new Winter Frame cut file.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck

As soon as I saw the cut file, I knew I wanted to do an 8.5x11 layout, which was my favorite size of when I first started scrapbooking.  I chose to keep the frame neutral using a pale green pattern paper, backing the poinsettias with white cardstock.  Most of the ornaments I chose a pale pink color print to back them with, with one exception of a gold cardstock on one.  I did the same with the branches, except on most I chose a darker green to back them with, then chose a softer green to back for one of them.  This really gave me enough texture and color around the outside, that I could then add more color with my photos and detail cut out ornaments.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck

I added die cuts and puffy stickers to finish.  Very easy and so full of texture with this cut file.  I adhered just the outside of it to my background cardstock so that it appeared to have even more dimension.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck
So many ways you could use this frame.  You could go with a more bold look on your next project!

Right Here Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez November 27, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used one cut file and the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The cut file I chose was the Stems 5.

 

To start my layout, I cut the cut file out of white cardstock, and painted it. I also did mixed media on another white cardstock, stamped flowers and fussy cut them. Then, I painted my background.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued my photos with adhesive foam to give them dimension. Then, glued the flowers I had fussy cut, and the cut file.

 

For my title, I used a piece of ephemera from the Color Study collection. To finish my layout, I fussy cut three butterflies and glued them. I also added stickers and white splatters.

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired to create beautiful things! Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

 

Have a lovely day!

The Day I Wore Faux Leggings | Patricia Roebuck November 6, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  I have a 6x8 layout to share using the new Background 8 cut file.  I used the knife in the Silhouette Software, to only cut out 6x8 of the cut file to use as a stencil on my white cardstock background.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

I used Altenew Paste through the stencil, then when it was dry, I added watercoloring on top to emphasize the cut file design.  To add more texture to my layout, I backed it with woodgrain pattern paper, added paint dots, stamped my title in various inks and stamps, and added stitching.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

My favorite stitching I added were the French Knots.  I used twine so a bit thick, but you could use embroidery floss as well.  For my photo, I layered pattern paper, die cuts, chipboard, and puffy stickers to add texture with the layers, and direction with the leaves.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

Thank you for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to try using paste, watercolors (or your water-based ink), and stitching with this Background 8 cut file!


Fall Faves | Majken Pullin November 4, 2021 07:00 4 Comments

Hello, and happy Thursday crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a colorful fall scrapbook layout using two new cut files: Rustic Ring 2 and Fall Faves!  Let's take a look.

I love the Rustic Ring 2 cut file over the blue patterned paper! After I cut out the ring, I brushed light blue paint in a circle under the area of where the ring would sit. While it dried, I backed the ring with patterned paper.

I sewed several circles on top of the paint layer, and I layered flowers and leaves underneath and on top of the ring for some colorful dimension.

I adhered the title to the center.

Here are the two cut files I used for my layout today.

Halloween Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez October 29, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used three cut files and the Story Teller collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The cut files I chose were: Happy Halloween 3, Spiderweb 2 and Halloween Icons 3.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut files. I used white cardstock to cut the Happy Halloween 3 and the Spiderweb 2, and for the Halloween Icons 3, I used one of the papers from the collection.

 

Once I had cut all the cut files, I painted my background with the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons. Then, I backed the Spiderweb 2 cut file with vellum paper.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the Spiderwebs and the photo on top of them. Then, I added flowers I had fussy cut.

 

For my title I used the Halloween word from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file. To finish my layout I added the bats from the Halloween Icons 3 cut file, ephemera, stickers and puffy stickers.

 

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired to create beautiful things! Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

 

Have a lovely day!

Halloween Snapchat | Sheena Rowlands October 27, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring lots of the great Halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Now my children are grown we don't tend to do so much at Halloween but I do love a photo filter & I have plenty of fun photos I can scrap. I had such fun making this scrapbook page & loved mixing up lots of different cut files together.

Halloween Snapchat.

 

After adding paint to my background cardstock I machine stitched some strips cut with the Boho Borders 1 cut file over the top.

The Spiderweb 2 cut file was perfect to create a base for both of my photos.

After using ephemera from Simple Stories Spooky Nights to embellish around my photos I cut ghosts from vellum using the Ghostly cut file and bats from cardstock using the Halloween Icons 3 cut file to add around the layout.

I finished the whole page off with my title in the centre back filling the word Halloween from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file.

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x 

 


Grateful | Patricia Roebuck October 12, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  So much to be thankful for this past year, and Thanksgiving time is definitely a way to express that with the beautiful Fall cut files JustNick has.  I used the Leaves 6 cut from white cardstock, backed with solid cardstock.  And then used the Give Thanks cut file digitally to create a background that I printed onto my pattern paper.  I use Photoshop Elements to change the color of it, make it smaller, and create the background.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck
JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

I created a circular cluster of the leaves, then added in my photos printed into circles to fit right in with the design.  I stapled the white cardstock cut leaves to the solid colored cardstock for a unique look and added texture.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

Before I adhered anything down, I penciled where my journaling would go, and sent through my typewriter.  Finished with beautiful Fall embellishments.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

These leaves are gorgeous!  Use them as I did and maybe give creating a digital background a try if you are able to.  So many ways you can use JustNick files other than cutting them!


HIKING MEMORIES by SOPHIE DELORME October 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this new layout to share!

 

 

I used the “Delightful Doily” cut file quite new in the JustNick Studio store, the “Happy Words” cut file along with the Pinkfresh Studio collection “A Day of Splendor”.

 

 

 

I cut three Doilies on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed each of them with different patterned papers. I also created big paper brads with a tool from my stash from Imaginisce and put them in the center of two of the doilies.

 

 

I arranged the cut files in a horizontal row and put my black and white photo, a bit crooked, on the left side of my 12x12 layout, overlapping two of the doilies.

 

I used letter stickers for my title and the word “Memories” from the cut file “Happy Words” which was released a few months ago.

 

 

I did an offset cut and cut in on velum. I mounted the word on adhesive foam before placing it on top of my photo.

 

Then, I decorated along the doilies line and around the photo with different die cuts and frames, all coming from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling directly on the page and stamped the date.

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! Doilies can be used in so many ways! They can also be used as stencils with modeling paste of ink blending. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!

This is 7th Grade | Majken Pullin October 7, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout using a new cut file called "Rosette Background". I also decided to create an 8 1/2" x 11" layout for this project to capture my son's first day of 7th grade.  Let's take a look!

I opened the Rosette Background cut file in my Silhouette Studio software and resized it to 10.5" x 10.5" and then sent it to cut on my Cameo with navy blue cardstock.  I punched 2" circles using a punch and then backed each large circle with those punches, trimming slightly if I didn't adhere it exactly behind the circle.

Originally I was going to use the full background, but I also wanted to use those large leaves from the Bungalow Lane collection, so I trimmed a wide strip of the background to use as a pattern along the right edge.

Next, I trimmed one of the cut apart 3x4 cards to put next to the photo of my son. And then I layered the leaves underneath to ground the photo and card, using 3D foam tape to pop up several leaves for dimension.

I used Thickers for the title, along with a navy alpha sticker set for the "This is" part.

I put a little embellishment cluster in the top right corner, but I really like the white space after that, so I left some of that white space to balance the layout.

Here is the cut file I used today:

You don't have to use the cut file as it is given - instead you can modify it using software or even a trimmer once it's already cut out!  Your imagination is the limit.  Join us on Instagram for more inspiration, and share your projects with us using #justnickstudio.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - enjoy the rest of your week! 


Fall | Patricia Roebuck October 1, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

Happy Fall to those living in the Northern Hemisphere!  I'm using the new Leafy Fall cut file in my Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Insert.  I decided two things first:  to use non-traditional Fall colors and to cut the file as is but trim it to stack.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see right there next to the 'A' where I trimmed this cut file.  I love it stacked like this on the left side.  I just added stamping, die cuts, and detail cutting around it.  I used a vibrant shade of violet cardstock and backed with mostly soft pattern papers.  To add a little more pop and the traditional 'fall,' I backed the leaves with a gold pattern paper.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I continued the detail cutting of pattern paper on the right side and incorporated a large photo under it.  I adhered the detail cut to vellum, added stamping and chipboard.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see the photo peek through the vellum on top and you can lift it to see the full photo.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

This is such a great time to create, and I hope you grab this Leafy Fall cut file for your next project.  Please share if you do and tag @justnickstudio.


You are my Happy Place by Sophie Delorme September 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this autumnal layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful “Fantastic Fall Leaves” cut file for this page, along with the Felicity Jane “Julia” collection.

 

 

I created a mixed media background by applying watercolors in the shades of pink, yellow and green to match the color scheme of the collection.

 

I let it dry completely.

 

In the meantime, I cut many leaves from the cut file on white cardstock. I machine stitched in the center of many leaves with different colors of thread. I bent the edges and arranged them in clusters around my black and white photo.

 

 

I fussy cut a few florals from a patterned paper and placed them amongst the leaves. I made sure to adhere only the center of the leaves and flowers to create a lot of dimension.

 

 

I placed my title on the top left side of the photo. I handwrote my journaling on a pocket card and added a beautiful gingham tag next to it.

 

 

Finally, I added plenty of beautiful green crystal gems from Pinkfresh Studio as the finishing touch!

 

I took a ton of close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! I used the cut file as if I had numerous die cut embellishments! Simple but adorable!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today !

 

Thank you for stopping by, I will see you again soon !

Love This Place | Sheena Rowlands September 21, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring a great background cut file from Just Nick Studio.

Love This Place.

Recently we got to spend an afternoon in the gardens of Buckingham Palace and I wanted to document our visit. The Everyday Words background cut file jumped out at me as it incorporated everything I thought about our visit.

Before cutting this cut file I used the off set feature to draw around each of the words on this background in black pen.

Using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio - These Days collection, I mounted the cut file over a patterned paper using foam to add dimension. I measured the gaps on the cut file and over the word YOU so I could print 5 small photos to fit over the cut file.

The layout was finished off with flowers, butterflies, stickers and leaves adding a little embellishment to the whole page.

I hope you feel inspired to check out this cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x

 

 


Definitely Not Perfect Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez September 20, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Floral Pieces cut file. I also used the Rosette Background cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I painted my background using the Rosette Background cut file as a stencil.
 
While my layout dried, I fussy cut some flowers. Once my background dried, I glued my photo, the flowers and the Floral Pieces cut file.
 
For my title I used one of the exclusive mixed die cuts from Hip Kit Club. To finish my layout I added stickers and adhesive crystals.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards
Hello Friends!  I have been digging through my cards and found I need some specific for sympathy.  I am also in love with Slimline Cards, and the Floral Cluster 7 works as is on my card.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards
After trimming the card base, I used a Slimline card die to create a white cardstock panel, and then I used a smaller Slimline card die to cut out another panel using pattern paper.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

On both of the cards, I backed only the flowers, and on one I did the leaves as well.  To make the sentiment stand out more on the top card, I used black cardstock and embossed in gold.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

For the bottom card, I used white cardstock and gold embossing.  I left the branches as is on both because it adds a nice neutral layer, keeping the flowers and the sentiment as the focus.  Hope you give this a try on your Slimline Cards!


Love You the Most by Sophie Delorme September 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Leaf Wreaths” and “Build a Wreath”, duplicated and cut them on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I used a Felicity Jane Kit named “June” for this page.

 

I started by applying some Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical powder on a thick white cardstock to create a mixed media background in soft peach and orange tones.

 

I cut a big rectangle of patterned paper and turned up the upper edge so that we can see the reverse side and its beautiful pink floral pattern, and made a zig zag stitch along with a checkered strip of patterned paper to adhere everything on the background.

 

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo and placed it on the right side of the page.

 

I cut the Leaf Wreaths in a few pieces and mixed them with the other foliage to created two beautiful clusters on both sides of my photo. I only adhered their base so that it creates movement and dimension to the page.

 

 

I mixed the clusters with a few floral embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection.

 

I also created a bouquet on the upper left side of the layout with a few leaves that I had left, and tied them with a beautiful bow made out of a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

My title is also from a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

 

Finally, I created another cluster of embellishments with a journaling card, some tags, a heart and flowers to handwrite my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am very happy with the result! These beautiful leaves add so much to the page! And cutting them on a white cardstock doesn’t make the page too busy and highlights the photo beautifully!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you in some way today,

 

Thank you for stopping by!

Enjoy The Moment | Sheena Rowlands September 6, 2021 07:00

Hi Everyone x

Sheena here again sharing with you a new 12x12 layout featuring 2 of the wonderful Just Nick Studio cut files.

Enjoy Every Moment.

I used the Floral Screen cut file which I turned in the Silhouette software to enable me to cut it as a triangle in white cardstock.

I backed this cut file with variegated patterned papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection. I adhered it to my background paper using foam pads for dimension.

My photos were added over the point of the cut file & fussy cut flowers tucked around them.

My title is also a Just Nick Studio cut file, Enjoy the Moment.

This was cut from more of the ombre patterned paper, then mounted on an offset cut from white cardstock. This was adhered over the flowers before adding white splatters to the page.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x

As soon as I saw the new Boho Borders 1, I had to use them.  I used white cardstock to cut them out, and then used mostly solid or simple pattern papers to back them.  Trimmed them to fit my page.

I also used the new Floral Cluster 5 to layer over it.  I cut that from white cardstock as well, and then used grey paper to pack it.  These colors set the palette for my project, so I repeated those colors with a grid on the left including more photos and hidden journaling.

These cut files were perfect for the topic of my project being all women from my work.  Keeping with the white cardstock and simple patterns to back the pieces really pulled both pages together while keeping focus on the photos.

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.

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a sweet layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Script Alpha” and “Labels 3” that were released a few weeks ago.

 

 

 

I cut the frames in a few different sizes on white cardstock with my cutting machine and carefully stitched on each frame with white thread.

 

I used a collection from Felicity Jane called “Ginny” for this page.

 

I used a soft pink cardstock for my background and added a few splatters of white acrylinc paint on it. I cut the upper and bottom part of the cardstock and placed it on a patterned paper. I made a zigzag stitch on the top junction of the papers.

 

I added different patterned papers in 3 of the frames, my photo in the bigger one, my journaling printed on velum in the lower frame and created a simple shaker with the smaller frame right next to my title. I popped every frame except the velum one with adhesive foam.

 

 

 

For my title, I used the Script Alpha cut file and created the word “friends” and did an offset cut that I cut on velum for a beautiful and soft look. I also added adhesive foam to the word to make it stand out.

 

 

I stamped the world “Beautiful” directly on my background, nested between the letters of “Friends”, with black ink.

 

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments from the sale collection.

 

I LOVE the soft and sweet look of this layout. I hope you do too !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These frames have so many possibilities ! You can use them for your photos but also, like I did here, for your journaling, to include patterned papers or even shaker elements to your design!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today ! Thank you for stopping by !

 

Sophie xx

Hi, JustNick Studio Friends!  The best inspiration is sometimes right on your desk.  I used the older Countdown numbers and new Fun Florals in my memory planner for my last post.  You can see that here.

I took the leftover cardstock from cutting the countdown numbers to use as a stencil on my white cardstock background in grey ink.  Then I used a leftover cluster of the Fun Florals as a mask using a contrasting ink.  Next, I just used a leftover 2 with stickers and ephemera to create a cluster and title.

For the right side, I used a label stamp to create a border, added stickers, then sent through my typewriter to journal.  Just adhered everything in place to finish, including the Fun Floral I used as a mask under my photo.

Friends | Majken Pullin August 16, 2021 10:30

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share another scrapbook layout. On today's project I am using two cut files: Script Alpha to create my title and Scribble Circle Background that I "chopped" and enlarged to create a bit of a different background.  Let me show you how I modified and used the cut files!

To create the single large scribble circle, I first released the compound path and moved the image to the side, deleted the remaining duplicate image, then put the compound path back on the one you moved to the side. 

Next, use the knife tool (if you don't have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, you can use the eraser tool instead) to cut one corner circle from the background.

Once the circle is separated, delete the remaining circles and zoom in so you can see the edges well.

Then refine the edges using the eraser tool. Don't stress this part if you aren't exact...you can cut the circle out and use fine-tip scissors to smooth your edges.

I then enlarged the circle, cut it out from white textured cardstock, and then used watercolors to add color in different concentrations to match the patterned papers.  While that dried, I tore two strips to put along the left and right of my base page. I used watered down white acrylic paint and blue watercolor to spritz ink on my base.

After that dried, I put my circle on the base page and sewed messy circles around the cut file.  Then I framed my photos with patterned paper and ephemera to put inside my circle.

I laced my circle with stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard pieces, and more.

I cut "friends" from dark blue patterned paper using the new Script Alpha cut file and followed the circle to create my title.

Here are the two cut files I used in my project today:

Go grab some cut files today to create with, and don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio so we can see what you are making!

Have a fantastic week!

You Are Enough Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez August 12, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Waved Circle and Build A Flower 3 cut files.
 
I start my layout by painting the Waved Circle cut file in rainbow colors. I also paint the flowers.
To build my layout, I glued the Waved Circle cut file and my photo, for this I used adhesive foam to create dimension, then I glued the flowers.
 
To finish my layout I added Ephemera, Puffy Stickers, Cardstock Stickers and Enamel Dots from the Keeping It Real collection from Pinkfresh Studio.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

Live in the Moment by Sophie Delorme August 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Live in the Moment” and “Summer Icons”.

 

 

 

The collection used to create my page is “Summer Farmhouse” from Simple Stories.

 

I cut the “Live in the Moment” title on white cardstock and then did an offset cut and cut it on patterned paper. I added adhesive foam behind the title for more dimension.

 

 

I used the beautiful flowers, clouds and beach umbrella from the Summer Icons that I backed with patterned papers as well. I arranged them around my black and white photo, adding dimensional foam on the back of a few of them.

 

 

I teared big chunks of patterned papers that I layered on the bottom of the layout to ground everything, and handwrote my journaling with a white gel pen.

 

 

I painted very softly around my photo with watercolors, and added beautiful Pinkfresh Studio crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how the title stands out beautifully on this page !

 

I hope you feel inspired by my creation today, thank you for stopping by !

Live in the Moment - Mixed Media | Majken Pullin August 7, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you this August day to share a mixed media scrapbook layout with a fun title "Live in the Moment", a cut file new last month to the JustNick Studio shop!  Let's take a look:

Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection is made for mixed media, and I decided to get messy.  I painted Gesso on my white textured cardstock, let it dry, and then painted pink texture paste vertically on the background.  Next I stamped polka dots over the top using a similar color of Distress Ink and spritzed some black ink over that.  Finally, I used a stencil and some white texture paste over my background.

While all that dried, I cut the Live in the Moment cut file from green patterned paper thinking my title would bring out the green in the flower stem from my photo.  But I found it to be too much, so I cut it out again using a black patterned paper.  Then I found that one to be too dark.  Ultimately I decided to use the green as a shadow to the other one, and I like the dimension of it!

After that, the rest came together quickly with some ephemera, chipboard pieces, and stickers.

Here is the cut file:

Live in the Moment

Now more than ever, we all deserve to "live in the moment"!  Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Good Vibes | Majken Pullin July 29, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout that is a tribute to my favorite caffeinated beverage. My former favorite was a different flavor that has since been discontinued -- booooo! -- so I found this one.  Here's my layout:

Good Vibes

I started with the pink stripe background as my base, and I decided my photo area would go in an 8 1/2" x 11" mat of white textured cardstock (which I spritzed with some pink and pinkish-orange watercolors) with a pink mat. I machine stitched around the edge. 

I cut the Good Vibes cut file out in blue-green cardstock, and then I offset the phrase slightly using my Silhouette Studio software and cut the offset out in white textured cardstock to give my title some dimension.

I used the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping It Real puffy alphabet stickers to finish my title area above the photo.

I used a journal spot to help mat my photo area, and I tucked ephemera around it as well.

On the left side of my layout, I machine stitched some wavy lines down the side and then layered some ephemera and enamel dots down the stitching.

Here is the cut file used on my project today:

After a very challenging year and half, we all deserve some good vibes! Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Homemade Sunshine by Sophie Delorme July 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing another cute summery layout !

 

 

I used the “Cool Treats” that was just released recently on the shop !

 

 

I cut it twice on white cardstock and really made it the main element on my page !

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a mixed media background.

 

I used a Carta Bella Paper collection named “Summer” for this page. I backed each treat with all sorts of patterned papers from the collection.

 

 

I also used velum on top of pink cardstock for the popsicle next to my photo on the left.

 

 

I created an ice cream cone with craft cardstock that I embossed with an embossing plate. Looove this effect !

 

 

I mounted some of the treats on adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

I embellished my page with a few floral stickers and created a banner on the top right side of my photo.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling and added many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels for a bit of sparkle !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the result ! I hope you do too and that my page could inspire you ! A cut file is the best way to get started with a layout, as it dictates so easily the design !

 

Thanks for stopping by !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

Memory Planner | Patricia July 20, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  Today I'd like to share a spread in my memory planner from Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Inserts using the new Sunshine and Live in the Moment cut files and an older one called File Folders.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I have a few more ideas of how to use these folders in my memory planner and may just give them a try and share more later.  For this project, after ungrouping the design and resizing the today folder, I duplicated, mirrored it and then weld it to make a folder.  I just had to make sure that 'today' was upside down on the bottom part of my cut file.  

I used just the 'sunshine' cut file on the left to fill up space over pattern paper.  This was in February and it was chilly for us.  Using the cut file with the puffy alphas and stickers helped take the place of just journaling that it was cold.  Makes it a little more cheerier especially since this was Valentine's week.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

For my folder on the right, I backed the 'today' to stand out with the same pattern paper from the left side, and then filled up the front with lots of embellishments and stamps to create a blocked or grid look.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I used more pattern paper on the inside and then used the 'live in the moment' cut file over it with more embellishments.  For the top, I printed a 4x6 photo, traced, trimmed and adhered.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Will be back with more inspiration using the File Folders and more cut files in my memory planner to share.


Beach Vacation | Majken Pullin July 16, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here today with you to share another Summer project during Summer weeks.  I have a very beach-y vacation layout today.

Doesn't it just make you think of warm breezes, sunshine, and cool waves?

I cut the "BEACH" from Beach Sand Surf on my Cameo in white textured cardstock and backed the open parts of the cut file with the ombre paper.  Then I machine stitched around all the letters in the word.

I cut the letters for "VACATION" out from Outline Alpha and backed those letters from the reverse of the same ombre paper to stack below on the left side of the layout. 

And I tucked little bits of ephemera and stickers around the letters.

I created a border along the bottom of the page to mimic water.

I put my photo area to the right of "VACATION" and sprinkled a few enamel dots to create a visual triangle.  And my journaling fit underneath my photo area.

I hope you have some fun summer memories to scrapbook - go check out the JustNick Studio store for all kinds of fun, summer cut files!

Here's a look at the cut files used in today's project:

Have a great summer!

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.


Hello Summer Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez July 7, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Hello Summer 2 and Sundial cut files, which will be in the store soon.
 
I cut three of the Sundial cut file and backed with the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin. Then I paint my background and the Hello Summer cut file.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut files and my photo, for this I used adhesive foam to give them dimension. Then I fussy cut some of the circles of the vellum paper from the Color Study collection and glued them. To finish my layout I added die-cuts and stickers.
 I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by.
 
Have a lovely day!

Mmmmm Ice Cream | Majken Pullin June 22, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone and welcome to the JustNick Studio blog!  Majken here with you today, and I'm sharing a "sweet" layout.  Let's take a look:

Does this lovely cut file make you hungry for some ice cream?  I cut out the Ice Cream cut file in white textured cardstock and then backed it with shimmer brown cardstock and patterned paper. Dark brown enamel dots for chocolate chips...yum!  And I machine stitched around the ice cream and throughout the cone for some fun texture.

For the title of my sweet layout, I used the very cute Doodle Alphabet and cut out all my letters with white textured cardstock as well.  I backed the first part of the title with the lighter part of an ombre patterned paper.

And then I backed the remaining part of my title with the darker part of the ombre patterned paper.

I created some tags for my photos and tied them together for a very mini-tag album!

I put journaling in the center of my title and added a bow and some other little touches.

Here are the cut files I used!

Doodle Alpha

I hope this inspires you to create some fun elements for your past and future ice cream outings!  Please share with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio tag.  We would love to see them!

Have a great week.

Magic ! | Sophie Delorme June 17, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing a 8,5” x 11” layout !

 

 

I rarely do this size of page ! I used the beautiful “Floral Burst Background” cut file.

 

 

I backed each petal with patterned papers from an exclusive Hip Kit Club kit from March 2021. I added adhesive foam behind it and placed it on the right side of my page.

 

 

I machine stitched around my white cardstock with yellow thread and backed the whole page with a soft blue patterned paper.

 

I printed my photo in black and white so that both my photo and the beautiful cut file would stand out.

 

I added a floral cluster with die cuts from the same kit on the bottom of the cut file, placed a few phrase stickers on the top left where I stamped the date, and handwrote my journaling.

 

Here are a few close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple and sweet !

 

I hope you can find some inspiration with this page today !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

YOU & ME | Nathalie DeSousa June 13, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone!

Nathalie here with a new layout using Just Nick Studio's gorgeous cut files.  I am so happy to be back for a new term with this team, and working with Nicole's designs and a new amazing group of ladies.  Today, I wanted to use some of the new designs  to create a simple and clean design.

 

 

I used the new  PRETTY SWAG cut file to create the large floral die cuts from white cardstock.  These were three times at different sizes, so that they form  the large swag from the top to bottom of the page.

 

 

 

I combined papers from Pinkfresh Studio's latest collections to create my page, and decided to add a few more pieces to the clusters -as a way to bulk them up-.  For this, I used the STEMS 4 cut file to cut a few extra leaves and branches and glued them around the large floral cluster.

 

 

 

To finish the page, I added a simple title and a few gems around the clusters  just to add a pop of shine!

 

 

Remember to check all the new designs that are available in the shop.  You will love all that Nicole is adding to Just Nick Studio shop.

Live Life In Full Bloom Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez June 10, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Yarelys here to share with you my first layout as a member of the JustNick Design Team!

For this layout I used the Floral Cluster and Basketweave Background 2 cut files.

I started my layout by painting the Basketweave Background cut file. For this I used three different tones of pink to make an ombre effect. I also did some mixed media for my background. While my background dried, I backed the Floral Cluster cut files with two papers from the March Hip Kit.
 
Once my background dried, I glued the cut files and my photo. I also added some floral die cuts, my title, puffy stickers and epoxy flairs.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by.
 
Have a lovely day!

Hello | Majken Pullin June 9, 2021 07:00

Hello lovely crafty people, Majken here with you today as a returning design team member for JustNick Studio.  I'm so excited to be back with you for another year! 

Today I have a 12x12 layout to share with you celebrating my 21st anniversary with my husband last month.  We were over-the-moon to be going out for a dining experience at one of our favorite restaurants.  Take a look!

I first decided to use hearts from the Sentiments 1 cut file to layer tone-on-tone as my background and cut them on my Silhouette Cameo 4 in various sizes.

I chose a patterned paper to cut at an angle along the bottom for my title and journaling strips as well as a partial mat for my photo and butterflies!  I created an offset of the butterflies from Sentiments 1 in two sizes and then cut them multiple times so I could layer with different patterned papers.

I cut "hello" from Sentiments 1 for my title in patterned paper and a layer of chipboard to create dimension.

I used the scallop strip from Borders 1 to layer underneath my angled edge and sewed on my layout as well.

Here are the two cut files I used on my project today!

Sentiments 1

Borders 1

Thanks so much for joining me today on the blog!  Visit the JustNick store for a huge selection of great cut files for all your crafting, and join us on Instagram where you can share your projects with us too.

Special Bond | Sophie Delorme June 3, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share:

 

 

I used a beautiful cut file from the store named “Leafy Floral”:

 

 

As you can see it is a background cut file but I decided to use it in pieces.

 

I started my layout with a white cardstock as my base. I applied a little bit of aqua watercolor on it. Then, I teared three strips of patterned papers from the lovely Carta Bella Paper “Oh Happy Day” collection to create 3 horizontal lines, on which I did a zig zag stitch with white thread.

 

 

I used a 3x4” card for my journaling that I placed between the two black and white photos of me and my sweet Sabrina.

 

 

At the base of the photos, I created a big floral cluster. That’s where I used numerous leaves that I cut out of the beautiful cut file. I adhered only the base of them to create more dimension. I love that the watercolor background shows softly behind the leaves.

 

 

I added my title and scattered some Nuvo Drops around the page as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I like the result!

 

Don’t hesitate to cut into your cut files or modify them to fit with your design.

 

I hope this has give you new ideas to try!

 

Thank you for stopping by, I wish you a great crafty day!

 

Sophie xx

 


Sweet Bloom | Sophie Delorme May 28, 2021 07:00

Hey JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful Butterfly Border cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white textured cardstock with my cutting machine. I separated it in two parts; the top three butterflies are attached together as well as the bottom two.

 

I used a beautiful Mintay Paper collection named “Beauty in Bloom” on this page. I backed each butterfly with papers from this collection.

 

I traced a smaller butterfly by hand on velum, cut it and placed it on each cut file butterfly. It adds dimension in a very soft way. I also hand stitched on the body of each butterfly and created a little embroidery floss bow.

 

 

For my background, I added a few touches of pastel watercolors.

 

I created my title with some Pinkfresh Studio alphabet dies.

 

 

I embellished around my photo with flowers cut out of a few patterned papers and handwrote my journaling on a journaling card.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a soft and delicate page! This cut file is so perfect! It looks like the butterflies are flying away!

 

I hope you felt inspire today! Thank you for stopping by!

Love | Majken Pullin May 17, 2021 07:00

Hello and welcome crafty friends!  Majken here with you today sharing a new layout with the lovely Spring Swag cut file.  Here is my project:

Today I kept my project simple.  I started with a soft pink patterned paper as my base, and then I spritzed a few drops around the layout. 

While it dried, I cut the Spring Swag cut file out of textured white cardstock.  I decided not to back the cut file, but for some dimension, I popped up the edges while adhering the middle of the cut file directly to the background. I put a dot of adhesive to stick the vellum bird ephemera to the leaf.

I knew I wanted to tuck my photo above the center of the swag.  I layered it with some other patterned paper and ephemera first.

I used the Love ephemera to create a title area. And I love that sweet bow that frames the photo area.

A few sequins, stickers, and ephemera completed my project!

The Spring Swag cut file is gorgeous!

Spring Swag

Head over to grab your spring cut files today, and don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio!

I hope you are having a good spring.

Happy As Can Be | Majken Pullin May 5, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a pretty background cut file released just last month called Floral Filigree Background. It is in the style of a flower and reminds me of tile or a quilt, and you can do a lot with it! Here is my layout:

I enlarged the cut file to about 11"x11" and cut it from white textured cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.  I chose several colors on the B sides of some patterned papers from American Crafts Paige Evans Wonders collection. And then I randomly backed each of the filigrees.

Once each filigree had patterned paper behind it, I adhered it to another sheet of white textured cardstock, and the layout came together quickly and easily.

I layered my photo with some patterned paper and ephemera.

I used some stickers for the centers of many of the filigrees.

And I used one of the tags as the title for my layout.

You could also use the cut file as a template for inking or other media.  I know it would look amazing! 

Here is a look at the Floral Filigree Background cut file:

And there are many other beautiful background cut files to choose from for all sorts of different projects, so definitely check them out in the JustNick Studio store.  And don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio.

Thanks for stopping by today...have a wonderful week!

Dream Big by Sophie Delorme April 28, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

It’s Spring time and it is the theme of my page !

 

I used the new Spring Floral 1 and Spring Floral 2 cut files.

 

 

 

I decided to place them as three flower bouquets hanging down above my photo.

 

I cut them on white cardstock and backed them with the beautiful Echo Park Paper collection named “Salutation no.1”

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a little green and blue mixed media background beneath were I planned to place my photos. I also added many tiny colored splatters that matched my color scheme.

 

I printed my photos in black and white. They are cute moments between Sabrina and our dog Fiona playing together during the pandemic lockdown. I added adhesive foam behind my photo and a strip of blue patterned paper to ground it.

 

 

I created a little floral cluster on the right lower side of the photos as a recall from the bouquets, and added a journaling card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I decorated the three bouquets with flowers and leaves die cuts from the same Echo Park collection and punched three bows out of patterned paper placed at the base of each bouquet.

 

 

Finally, I scattered many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Crystal Mix as the final touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I looove this Spring feel so much !

 

I hope you felt inspired by this layout and those gorgeous cut files ! Check out the store for many more beautiful cut file ideas and inspiration !

Hello Spring | Majken Pullin April 21, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello cut file fans - so glad you could visit the JustNick Studio blog today!  Majken here with you to share a layout using two cut files for a Spring-themed project. My layout today features a pretty photo of a rainbow!

How sweet is this camera cut file from the Stay Focused set? I cut it out using white textured cardstock and backed it with several patterned papers from Pink Paislee while I let the watercolor drops on the background white textured cardstock dry.

I fussycut several flowers to sprinkle on top of the cut file too for additional dimension and texture.

I wanted to use the "spring" Thicker in the title, so I combined it with the "hello" from Hello Spring:

Some stickers and enamel dots complete the layout!

Here are the cut files I used in today's project:

I hope your spring is a happy one! Please do share your spring projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us and tag us with #justnickstudio so we can see! You can see many spring cut files here.

Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you today to share a sweet layout using the JustNick Studio Floral Cluster 1 cut file. This is our sweet kitty, Oreo:

I began this layout by cutting out the Floral Cluster 1 from white textured cardstock. I decided that instead of backing the flowers with patterned paper, that I would put subtle brushes of ink behind them for a soft look.

I took matching Distress Oxide inks and brushed in circles lightly underneath the cut file.  The larger flowers have Fired Brick and the smaller flowers have Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky, while the leaves have Evergreen Bough.  When I was done, I spritzed a few drops of the ink mixed with water and let it dry.  Then I spritzed water on the ink and patted it with a paper towel. Finally, I spritzed some shimmer ink on top.

I layered some patterned paper strips from Cocoa Vanilla Studio along the left edge of the layout.  Next, I adhered the photo under the cut file slightly and wrote some journal strips.  I completed the layout with some sequins and a few pieces of ephemera, including that adorable corduroy heart. I combined two sets of alphabet stickers for my title.

Here is the Floral Cluster 1 cut file:

Inks are a great way to create a soft background behind cut files, and I hope this inspires you to try this technique!  If you do, be sure to share it with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Thanks for visiting today...have a great day!

Stay Amazing by Sophie Delorme April 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

I used the beautiful “Stay Focused” cut file that I cut on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I backed this cute camera with aqua cardstock and some patterned papers printed at home from a Felicity Jane digital collection.

 

I made sure to pop some elements of the cut file, like the lens of the camera, with adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

 

Before adhering it to my page, I created a light watercolor background and added a few splatters of watercolor paint in colors that matched my paper collection. My photo was quite neutral so I printed it in color. I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and a teared piece of pink polka dot paper that I tucked under the photo, on its right side.

 

I also fussy cut two white frames from the same Felicity Jane collection and placed them on the left side of the photo.

 

My title is a mix of the same “Stay Focused” cut file (for the word “Stay”) and a Simple Stories Cardstock sticker for the word “Amazing”. As you noticed, I did a little bit of doodling with a fine tip black pen on the word stay and on the camera.

 

 

Finally, I simply added a few fussy cut flowers and leaves around the photo and cut file, handwrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

Love You | Heart to Heart cut file | Sophie Delorme March 24, 2021 07:00

Hello !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

My assignment this week was to create a more masculine layout.

 

 

I used the “Heart to Heart” background 2 cut file for my design and a sweet photo of my teenager holding our dog.

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock for my background and played with Shimmerz paints and watercolors to add some blue mixed media where I planned to put the cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and backed the hearts with different patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio “Be You” collection. I also hand stitched around a few hearts with blue embroidery floss.

 

 

I added adhesive foam to the back of the entire cut file before adhering it to the page. I also added tissue paper, adhesive foam and a chipboard frame to my photo.

 

I teared two strips of patterned paper that I put on the bottom of the page to ground the whole design.

 

I added my title, fussy cut leaves out of patterned paper and a few other embellishments and hand wrote my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you with this page today. There are so many options of cut files in the Just Nick Studio store and many of them can be used for more masculine pages.

 

Thank you for passing by today and happy creating !
