JustNick Cut File Store
Hello Spring March 27, 2017 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends! Marcia here today kicking off a week of Spring inspiration. When I think of Spring I think of Sunshine and Flowers. Two things that after a long cold and snowy winter are like a breath of fresh air. So my layout today features sunshine and flowers ...
I started off by creating my background, using the Let It Shine Background digital cut file as a stencil to create my sun rays. Some stitching on the rays adds some definition and texture.
I add a little green to the bottom of my layout background for grass. A perfect setting for those Delicate Florals...
When it came time to choose a title, I could not resist using the new Hello Spring cut file. I backed the title with some of the same papers as I used for the flowers.
I am so happy with how this layout came together.
Here are the cut files I used today ...
I hope I brought some sunshine to you on your Monday. Have a great week!

Good morning JustNick fans! It's been a while since I have been on the blog with a regular post! I am here to share a page with you using a couple of my favorite cut files from some newer designs in the store.
I really wanted to use the Delicate Florals cut file and so I started with that, along as a quote I found on Pinterest for my title.
I cut the flowers out of several Dear Lizzy papers and lined them along the bottom of my page in varying sizes.
I love the simplicity of the outline font with the flowy script font!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Meet Me in Tahoe and Sketch Pens! May 11, 2016 07:00
Melissa here with you today and I've got a page that utilizes sketch pens and a cut file from Just Nick! I've had my Cameo for over 5 years now and have always wanted to try out the sketch pens but, just never got around to getting some. Now that I have them, it's one of those moments that has me constantly saying, "why didn't I get these sooner???"
Nicole has created several cut files that I think work so perfect for the sketch pens! One of those is the Delicate Florals file. Let me tell you, it was fascinating watching the sketch pens go to work. Because I hadn't used them before, nor had I viewed any tutorials (I like to fly by the seat of my pants and try things out on my own!) I wasn't sure how the pens would interpret the lines and overall design of the cut file.
It created a beautiful outline of the flowers for me to color in. Fun!
Before I go much further, I want to let you know that I created a process video for the page I'm sharing with you today. It's less than 10 minutes and you get to see my entire process of coloring and building the page around the florals. If that's something you like to view, you can check it out here:
If watching a video isn't the way for you, no worries! I'll still show you a few details of my page. Here it is in its full glory:
You can see how I utilized the florals to help balance out the page. I also pulled some florals from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection used, to help bring the floral element together.
When I'm creating, I do a lot of pushing around with papers and figuring out how different patterns and colors look when layering. It's a fun, and sometimes exhausting, process. If you choose to watch the video, you'll see that in its full glory.
To color in the florals, I used my Pitt Artist Pens from Faber Castell. I love these pens. They are india ink so, they give a really cool stained look and are easy to blend.
Here are some close up shots of my page:
I used one other cut file - the geotag and right here phrase are from the Around the World cut file group. So cute and fun for those vacation and travel pages.
Do you have sketch pens? Get them out and have some fun! They really do help stretch the use of your cut files!

Hello friends! Heather Leopard is here kicking off a few more days of the Pinkfresh / JustNick team-up. I absolutely adore Pinkfresh's flair for design so I was elated to get to work with the Life Noted collection.
I love the pre-printed divided page design on this paper. It took care of my background design work.
And yay for the lovely spring colors. I decided to mix the spring-like patterns with the Delicate Florals cut file, backing with fun designs from the collection.
I hope you are enjoying this team-up as much as we are. Make sure to head over to the Pinkfresh blog to see how her creative team integrated JustNick's files into their creative process.
