JustNick Cut File Store

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.

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

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 !

Enjoy the Moment | Valeska Guimaraes June 21, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new layout using two wonderful JustNick Studio´s cut files.

I used the Beautiful Bouquet cut file and the title Enjoy the moment cut file. Both of them match perfectly together with Hey Hello Jen Hadfield´s collection.

I cut them with white cardstock and in the title I used yellow distress oxide to paint it, making an ombre effect. 

I also painted my paper background with acrylic paint. While it was drying, I backed some flowers of my bouquet cut file with pink cardstock.

I stitched my background in the same pink cardstock and started to assemble my layout. I glued the bouquet cut file in the center of my page leaving a space for my title. 

I glued my photo on the top of the cut file and all the die cuts around it. I used enamel dots to give more dimensional to my page.

I really love how this layout came out. I think the cut files were perfect to express how amazing that moment was.

Hope you feel inspired to create and use those beautiful cut files. Don't forget to stop by the shop to see more news.

Thank you for reading this!

Have a beautiful day!

I used the beautiful Spring Stained Glass cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white cardstock. I backed the flowers with Paige Evan’s new collection “Wonders” and the rest of the cut file with velum. I made a chain stitch all around it, added adhesive foam behind it and centered it on a beautiful Wonders patterned paper that couldn’t be more perfect for this circular design !

 

 

I printed my photo in black and white to make it stand out around all those springy colors, with a layer of tissue paper behind it.

 

I embellished around the photo with floral and leaves die cuts from the same collection, added a chipboard sticker for my title and a few Pinkfresh Studio crystals mix.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

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 !

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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you today and that you like this page !

 

Visit the Just Nick Studio shop to see all the amazing choices of cut files. It’s a great way to get you started and inspired to create a page !

 

Thank you for stopping by today, and happy crafting !

Beautiful | Anna Blades March 19, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you sharing a new layout. Today, I’m using one of the new cut files called Floral Geode. It’s so beautiful and I think is very versatile too.

For my background I chose a gradient patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio, with peach and pink tones. Then, I made splatters with white and pink paint.  I cut the Floral Geode cut file from white cardstock because I wanted it to stand out against the pink background.

I fussy cut some flowers from another paper from the same collection and put them around the cut file to create a kind of wreath.

I placed my picture in the center of the page, inside the cut file, letting some of the flowers overlap on the photo.

For my title, I used a gold foil alphabet thicker with the word “beautiful”. Then, I added some die cuts and puffy stickers to embellish my page.

Finally, I scattered some enamel dots from Felicity Jane Studio around the wreath, emphasizing the paint splatters. I love the spring look of this layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like this page and it gives you some inspiration. Don’t forget to visit the store every week for new cut files!

See you!

 


Dream My Little Angel | Sophie Delorme March 12, 2021 07:00

Hello Crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I used the Fall Foliage 2 cut file for this page.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock as my base, and applied an Inklingz from Shimmerz Paints using the packaging technique where I planned to put my cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and placed it to create 2/3 of a wreath on the left side of my page.

 

I backed the leaves of the cut file with the beautiful Felicity Jane digital collection named Hanna. I put adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. I love the subtle dimension it creates, and the soft effect of white on white. Perfect for a winter page !

 

 

Then, I backed my photo with tissue paper, patterned paper and adhesive foam, and I fussy cut plenty of floral ephemeras from the same Felicity Jane collection to embellish my page.

 

 

My title is a mix of Thickers and stickers from my stash.

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

 

This layout came together in no time at all ! Using a big cut file really dictates the design of the page and makes it a very easy process !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I inspired you with this page today,

 

Thank you for passing by !

Let your light shine | Anna Blades March 2, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you with a new layout featuring two beautiful Nicole’s designs. For today’s project I decided to create a soft and bright layout using two different cut files: Let your light shine and Fancy florals (coming soon).

Here are the cut files that I used:

I cut the title from white cardstock and use foam dots to give it more dimension. I love how the shadows make it stand out. Also, I used a gold metallic pen to highlight some parts of the letters. As you can see, my picture fits perfectly between the L and the H.

Then, I cut one of the fancy florals two times from white cardstock. And I backed it with vellum to add a soft touch. I placed one below the title and the other one in the upper right corner of the photo, on top of some layers.

Finally, I scattered a lot of gold stars and enamel dots around the design. I think it looks a little bit magical.  The idea of using this title was because of the lightbulb curtain behind my girls.  

To create the layout, I used Felicity Jane papers and embellishments. The enamel dots are from Lora Bailora.

I love how it turned out! Now is hanging on the wall of my child’s bedroom. Thank you so much for stopping by today.

See you soon with a new layout and amazing cut files!


This is me | Anna Blades February 19, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

 

Anna here with you today with a new layout. For today’s project, I’ve used two of the new cut files as die cuts. Because sometimes you don’t have enough die cuts. So, this way, you can create them in any size and color you want.

For my background, I used solid mint cardstock from Felicity Jane Studio. All the design is placed basically in the lower-left corner. First, I made a polka dot background with a stencil and distress oxide ink.

Then, I cut the Leaf Sprig cut file several times from white cardstock. I also cut the Pretty Swag cut file from white cardstock too.

Once I have framed the picture with a piece of patterned paper, I embellished it placing the cut files around it. Since the cut files are white, they make a contrast with the background. And you can see the polka dots peeking through the leaves.

I’ve used a chipboard bit as my title, and some more die cuts to embellish the photo. I also created a little cluster in the upper right corner. I cut a triangle from a striped paper and put another Leaf Spring cut file coming out from behind.

I completed the cluster with the phrase “so sweet” and two more hearts.

Lately, I’m enjoying making very clean and simple pages. Do you like this type of layout? I hope you can find some inspiration in them. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don’t forget to visit the shop to see the new cut files every week!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Forever Happy | Winter Florals | Sophie Delorme February 15, 2021 07:00

Hello all !

 

It’s Sophie here and I have another layout to share !

 

 

This time I used the gorgeous Winter Florals cut file that was just released in January !

 

 

I created a page with a photo of my sweet daughter outside in the snow, and the Mintay collection “Winterland” was just perfect for that.

 

I used a woodgrain paper for my background and thought that cutting the cut file on white cardstock would stand out really well. I cut the woodgrain paper 10 x 12 inches to leave a space on the left of the page to add a blue paper strip and white cardstock.

 

I cut the Winter Florals a few times in different sizes with my cutting machine and left them completely white. No colouring, and no backing with patterned paper. Instead, I created a huge floral and leaves cluster on the bottom right corner of my photo. I made sure to adhere only the base of the cut files so that the leaves would be free of movement. It adds a lot of dimension to the page.

 

 

I added fussy cut leaves, winter flowers and poinsettias to that cluster, many of them with adhesive foam, and I love the overall result !

 

I splattered droplets of white acrylic paint to the background to mimic snow. My title is a combination of Pink Paislee stickers and exclusive foam stickers from Hip Kit Club.

 

Finally, I used a beautiful frame cut out of patterned paper from the same Mintay collection and used it to hand write my journaling, and decorated it with a lovely fussy cut bird.

 

 

I love the winter feel to that page ! Using cut files like this really doesn’t have to be complicated ! I didn’t alter them at all, just used them as they are ! But it really gives to the layout that little extra special addition that makes it a piece of art !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you were inspired by this cut file and my page today !

 

I’ll see you soon !

LOVE YOU / Mandalla Heart / Sophie Delorme February 5, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !

Winter | Anna Blades January 27, 2021 06:30

Hi JustNick friends!

A few weeks ago, it snowed a lot here in Spain (but not a snowflake fell in my city). A friend of mine that lives in Madrid sent me this picture. It’s really awesome because we are not used to it. So, I had to make a layout with this picture. And I wanted it to be as cold as the photo.

First, I cut the Winter Frame cut file from white cardstock. Then, I took a watercolor sheet and drew the circle of the frame on it. And I made the background using watercolors and splatters of white paint.

For my title, I used the Distressed Alpha cut file. I think it has the wintry look I was looking for. I cut the word “winter” also from white cardstock. Then, I glued it with foam dots to add more dimension and depth.

Finally, I add two stickers on the opposite corners and one more on the top of the picture.

I hope you like this icy page. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don’t forget to visit the shop to see the new cut files every week.

Have a wonderful week!


The magic of Christmas December 18, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today, sharing a bit of Christmas Magic. For today’s project, I’ve used two amazing cut files that you could find in the shop.

I started with a light grey cardstock for my background and used a rose gold metallic paint to give some shine. I applied it with my finger and I also did some splatters.

In the photo, my girls are looking a giant luminous star, so I decided to use the Star cluster cut file. I cut it from white cardstock and placed it on the left side of the page using foam squares.

On the right side of the page, I placed my title. I used the Magic of Christmas cut file to create it. I stacked my photo between the title.

To embellish the page, I glued some black and white chipboard circles from Felicity Jane Studio.  Then, I ripped the top and the bottom of the page and put a black star patterned paper behind.

Finally, I wrote my journaling with a white gel pen and scattered sequins all over the page to add more shine.

I hope you like the page, and it gives you some inspiration. Have a wonderful week and a Merry Christmas!!

See you in 2021!

 


Picture Perfect by Sophie Delorme November 9, 2020 07:30

Hello everyone !

 

It's Sophie here and I am very happy to share this lovely layout with you today !

 

 

I used the beautiful Botanical Wreath that just arrived to the store in October.

 

 

I cut the wreath on my cutting machine and used only the 2/3 of it.

 

I started my page with a thick white cardstock, on which I added a bit of water-colour paint behind where I planned to put the wreath. I did little splatters of blue water-colour and some gold color shine as well.

 

I backed the delicate wreath with patterned papers from the beautiful Jen Hadfield collection named "The Avenue". I added some fussy cut leaves, flowers and chestnuts from the same collection.

 

 

I added adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. 

 

The photo is from me and my son, documenting how tall he his at 16 years old, and how time flies by.... 

 

My title is from a pocket life card, and I also created a label on which I stamped "Time Flies" with blue ink.

 

 

Finally, I created other leaves with an exclusive stamp set from Scrapbook and Cards Today to add to the floral clusters, and sticked down little golden puffy sticker leaves from Jen Hadfield.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !

 

Isn't this cut file just breathtakingly beautiful !??!

 

I hope I inspired you to get crafty today, thank you so much for passing by !

Too Cute To Spook | Sophie Delorme October 26, 2020 07:00

Hello friends !

 

It’s Sophie with you today with this lovely Halloween layout of my little girl enjoying giving treats last year !

 

 

I used two Just Nick cut files for this page: “Pumpkin Patch”

 

 

And “31” for my title.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock for my background, where I added a few watercolors behind the title and on the lower part of the layout.

 

 

I decided to use a beautiful collection from Simple Stories named “Happy Haunting” for my page. I teared a big chunk of patterned paper to “ground” the pumpkins and I backed each of them with different patterned papers and black cardstock for the eyes and mouths.

 

 

I added adhesive foam on the back of the cut file before adhering it to the page.

 

I also backed my title with adhesive foam. I love the extra dimension it gives to it.

 

 

I drew a spider web that connects my title to the photo and pumpkins.

 

Finally, I embellished the page with flowers, bats and a pumpkin cardstock sticker.

 

 

 

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and added a few white nuvo drops as the finishing touch.

 

 

I love the end result and the color scheme of my page.

MY LITTLE CHEF LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme August 24, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It's Sophie here today and I am thrilled to share this layout with you !

 

 

This week's theme is "Stencil Fun". Using cut files as a stencil is a great and different way to create a page, and it is so inexpensive compared to buying a stencil too !

 

For my page today, I used the beautiful Brick Circle cut file.

 

 

I put it in the center of a white thick cardstock, slightly adhered it with washi tape to make sure that it stands in place, and applied dry Distress Oxide Inks on it with a blending brush to create a brick wall on my background. I used the "Tattered Rose" and the "Speckled Edd" colors. Then, I removed the cut file and mixed the inks with water to add a few splatters of color on the cardstock. I adore the result !

 

 

My page is about my daughter cooking and decorating brownies all by herself. You can tall how proud she is !!

 

I used a beautiful collection from P13 called "Around the Table" to create my layout. I cut out a Pocket Life card and machine stitched around it with white thread, and fussy cut beautiful kitchen embellishments that I clustered around my photo.

 

 

I also cut a strip of patterned paper as well as two strips of cardstock that were cut with border punches and adhered them at the base of the page.

 

I added a beautiful bow made out of a die and some enamel dots here and there as the finishing touch.

 

This layout came together easily and I couldn't be happier with this brick wall made out of the JustNick cut file !

 

Here are a few more close-ups :

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired to use the JustNick cut files as stencils ! Give it a try ! You will come out with a completely different, yet so amazing look !

 

Thank you for passing by the blog today, and happy crafting !

Sweet Happy Life | Sophie Delorme July 30, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

Sophie here with you today sharing a layout featuring an amazing background cut file from the Just Nick Store called "Mandala Background".

 

 

 

I used a beautiful Pinkfresh Studio collection for my page called "My Favorite Story".

 

I cut the Mandala Background Cut file on white textured cardstock and removed the upper and left side of it to have a little bit of white space for my title. I added white gesso on my patterned paper under the Mandalas to soften the color underneath them, and added plenty of watercolor splatters on my background paper with a brush. I machine stitched around the cut file with white thread and added adhesive foam on the back of it before adhering it to the background. I love all the dimension it creates !

 

 

Finally, I created a few clusters of flowers and embellishments around my photo and on the right upper side of the page, wrote down a little bit of journaling and added the date.

 

Here are a few close-ups...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I always find that background cut files are a simple and easy way to get you started in creating a page ! Only a few embellishments are needed and you always get amazing results ! Keep in mind that you can always modify, cut, shrink, etc. the cut files to fit your needs !
I truly hope you got inspired by ma page today, thank you so much for passing by.
Sophie xx

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


BEST FURRIENDS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 26, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a cute layout highlighting the special bond between my little Sabrina and our dog, and I found the PERFECT JustNick Cut file for that ! 

I used the Cut file named "Paws to my Heart Background" that you can find in the store right here.

I've got so many photos of our dog... that as soon as I saw this in the shop, I new I had to use it !

So I started with a white cardstock background, adding just a few watercolor splatters on it in a rainbow order. I cut the cut file on white cardstock twice, to get a second layer of hearts. I backed the cut file with the beautiful paper no 06 from the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection. Then, I painted my second layer of hearts with watercolor to mimic the rainbow scheme of the patterned paper, and adhered it a little offset from the white hearts underneath. I love the result ! It's like having new embellishments, made out of the cut file..!

 I added adhesive foam behind the cut file and sticked it down to my page.

 I backed my photo with some tissue paper and a pink layer of another Bloom Street patterned paper and arranged it on the upper left side of the layout. 

 I embellished my page with other goodies from that same collection, and used a Flutter Phrase Thicker for my title.

 Isn't this cut file adorable ?? I am very happy with the end result ! I hope you like it too ! Check out the JustNick store to see more amazing cut files. Trust me, you  will get inspired on the spot !

Here are a ton of close-ups. Feel free to comment or ask any questions ! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 I wish you all a great crafty day !

Shine | Anna Blades June 24, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today with this simple and beautiful layout. I love butterflies and this cut file is just amazing. It's called Butterfly Background 2 and it was perfect for the "Unforgettable" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I cut it from white cardstock because I wanted it to stand out from the background. I also raised it with foam dots to give more dimension. 

For the background, I used the watercolor markers from Vicki Boutin. With different shades of pink and aqua, I made brushstrokes with a wide brush, because I was looking for this effect at the end of the strokes.

I painted only the part of the page that was covered by the cut file, leaving the edges white. So this way, the background and the cut file merge.

I placed some butterflies die cuts "tone on tone", and my picture in the lower right corner a little crooked.

Some butterflies from the cut file are just the silhouette, so I used one of them to stack a little cluster on top of it.

I hope you like this layout! As you can see, you can create an amazing background in a few minutes just with some watercolors and a cut file!

Don't forget to check all the beautiful background cut files in the shop.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a great week!


Hello Sunshine | Vicki Parker April 14, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today to share my latest layout using one of the new April cut files.

 

I used the Hello Sunshine cut file which you can find in store here.

 

 

It cut really nicely and I decided to back it with some colour papers from the Vicki Boutin Let's Wander collection.

 

 

Before sticking the letters to the page, I added some watercolour mixed media beneath where sunshine would go using the packaging technique and added a few splatters too.

 

 

The cut file really speaks for itself, so I didn't need a whole lot more on the page - I just added some fussy cut flowers and a butterfly die cut from the same collection. I also matted the photo with one of the patterned papers and used foam to add dimension. I also used foam behind the letters.

 

 

And that was how it came together. I love a cut file, it really simplifies what you have to do on the rest of the page whilst still giving loads of impact! I hope you liked it and it gives you some inspiration. Until next time....

 


Spring Flowers // Sarah Bargo April 3, 2020 21:04

Hey paper peeps TGIF woohoo! Today I want to share with you a fun and simple layout I did using the Doodle Flower Cluster cut file! 

One of my favorite parts of spring are the beautiful flowers everywhere, and this cut file reminded me of that! :) 

 Plus the curly Q's remind me of my niece's adorable pony tail! So cute!

One thing I love about using cut files is how versatile they are! You don't have to be a mixed media artist to use them, just simply lay one on top of some patterned paper and badda bing you have an adorable layout!

 

I ran a strip of mint green ledger paper through my typewriter first because I love the way typed words look! Then I just laid the cut file over top, super easy peasy! 

If you've been feeling a little down lately with all of the weirdness going on or whatever storms you may be going through, just remember, April Showers bring May flowers! xoxo

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Bloom // Sarah Bargo March 18, 2020 07:00

Hey paper peeps! Happy Wednesday! I don't know about you but I am super excited for springtime to get here! Spring makes me think of flowers and I looove gardening and flowers so much that I started a garden journal!  Come on I'll show you the first spread I have in it :) I used the gorgeous Bloom cut file!

These pages are being put into a vintage garden book, so the pages are about 6x8 inches. I cut the "bloom" word about 7 inches long, then I just put it vertically along the photo. Looks so fancy I love it! 

I cut the word out of pink watercolory print paper! Looks so delicate and pretty like a rose :) I found this photo of these gorgeous roses on Pinterest just to showcase them as my favorite flower! I bet they smell like heavennnn..

Maybe someday I'll have my own beautiful roses! Do you keep a garden journal? I can't wait to fill this up with pages and pages of pretty flowers! 

You can find this gorgeous cut file here! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 


Cherish | Anna Blades January 22, 2020 07:00 1 Comment

Hi Justnick friends!

Anna here with you today with this snowy layout. The moment I saw the "Snowflake background" cut file I fell in love with it. I wanted to do some mix media, and this cut file was perfect for that. 

I used Magicals from Lindy's for my background. Then I covered all the cut file with the iridescent glitter texture paste from Vicki Boutin. You can't see it in the photos, but both (magicals and texture paste) are very shiny. 

It really looks like the snowflakes are frozen. The main title is a glitter foam word, so all the page is very sparkly. 

I also used the "Snowflakes" cut file, to add more single snowflakes to the layout. I made a little cluster in the upper left corner, with a glitter foam heart to match the title. 

The embellishments are from the old collection from Crate Paper, "Snow and Cocoa" . I really enjoyed putting this layout together. 

I hope you like it! Don't forget to checkout the new cut files in the shop every week!

See you soon!

 

 


My Goal for 2020 // Sarah Bargo January 9, 2020 07:00

Hey paper peeps! Happy New Year! Do you have any goals for this year? So I fell upon this adorable movie called "Becoming Jane." It's about Jane Austen and I absolutely fell in love! I realized that I had never actually read any of her books, so that is my big goal for 2020! I am going to read all of her books and write about each one in my new "Jane Journal!" Nothing major, just maybe do a cute spread about each one, maybe jot down my favorite quotes and whatnot.. kindof my very own book club :) It's totally going to have an old vintage vibe! So here is my first spread in my travelers notebook "Jane Journal!"

I used 2 different cut files for this one, a darling coffee & tea one called "You Had Me At" and a beautiful "Script Font!" I thought a tea cup would be so cute and fitting, so I framed my photo with it! 

I just love the little steamy swirls coming up so cute! I saw this font and thought oh my gosh that just reminds me of a pretty handwriting that Jane might have had, so I cut her name out and scrawled it up the page like she signed it :)

I can already tell that I'm going to have so much fun with this, I haven't done anything "vintagey" in a long time! 

I adore reading and getting lost in a good book! I'm so excited I hope I can reach my goal! If you would like to join me in doing this challenge, make sure you tag me so I can see your cute journals! Lets use the hashtag #sbjanejournal so we can share idears!

Thank you so much for stopping by! xoxo

 

 


12 Days Of Giveaways Day 4 // Sarah Bargo December 4, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hey paper peeps! Is it really December eeeekkkk so excited! I love Christmastime so much! I'm especially excited today because it's day 4 of our 12 Days Of Giveaways here at Just Nick Studio, and I get to share with you this fun page I created using the gorgeous Holly 3 Cutfile! I just looovve holly, and this one is just adorable! 

This page is going in my Remember December album for this year, I spent the day crafting last weekend so I just had to do a festive page about it! 

I wanted the leaves to have an artsy green ombre effect, so I took my Tim Holtz Pine Needles Oxide Ink pad and applied some directly to my craft mat, then sprayed it with water. Then I dipped my Holly leaves in it, and I got this cool watercolor effect with all these other green hues coming thru! Turned out pretty neat! 

If you haven't tried adding some paints to your cut files, you definitely should, it's so fun!

It's a Wonderful Life / Sarah Bargo November 25, 2019 07:00

Hey paper peeps! I have a fun new layout to share with you today using the Snowflakes Background cut file! It is one of my favorite cut files, I just love it! 

I struggle sometimes with large layouts, that's why I love using large cut files, they make 12x12 layouts so simple to make!

Just add a few stickers and embellishments and you're all set! These snowflakes have so many darling little details! 

This is definitely one I'll keep using time and time again :) What is your favorite type of cut file to use?

Thank you so much for stopping by!


Introvert | Majken Pullin September 23, 2019 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today, and I'll let you in on a fun serendipity...it's my birthday!  So I thought I'd share a little more about myself - I'm an introvert!  I think introverts are highly misunderstood, but I think more people than you think fall into this category.

My layout today is super-colorful and fun - a counterbalance to what's often considered "introverted".  Take a look!

I decided to put "introvert" front and center on this layout.  I used Type It Alpha to weld together the stacked word. Here's a quick tutorial on welding letters if you are interested in the basics, and below is what my final cut file looked like after I arranged the letters so that each layer had at least one overlapping letter on the next layer.

Here are the basic steps how to create these letters:

  1. Trace the Type It Font and copy the letters you plan to use to a new file space.
  2. Size them how large you'd like them.
  3. Since these are solid letters, select the letters and create an offset so you have an outline.
  4. Arrange your letters so they overlap a bit, at least one on each layer.
  5. Optional:  Copy/paste the unwelded letters over onto the side or a new file so you can use them for cutting the inside of the letters separately if you wish.
  6. Weld the letters.

For my layout, I used the Simple Stories "Oh Happy Day" - it's such a burst of color and happiness!  I cut the phrase outline I created using black cardstock - it makes all those colors pop!  After spritzing some black ink spray on white cardstock and letting it dry, I backed my letters with a floral patterned paper from the collection.

I tucked the photo area to the side of the word and used some embellishments and stickers from the collection.

Here's another example of using this fun alphabet cut file, and here is the Type It Alpha:

Type It Alpha

The alphabet cut files are so versatile and can be used in so many ways!  And you can make them bold for a fun title.  I hope you are inspired to grab an alphabet or two from the JustNick Studio shop!

Have a great day!

Majken


Happy memories | Anna Blades September 16, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone!

Anna here with you today sharing a layout with some floral cut files. Fall is almost here, so I was inspired to use the Fall frame cut file. I cut it a little smaller than my background and added foam underneath to give it some dimension. 

On the top corners I used the Leaf Cluster 3 and the Boho Florals 2 cut files. I backed all the leaves and flowers with patterned paper from Craft Consortium. 

The background paper and all the embellishments are from the "Just a little lovely" collection from Pinkfresh Studio. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the sotre to find a lot of amazing floral cut files.

Have a great week!

 


Little Adventurer | Vicki Parker July 29, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout and today I am using the Sunburst Background 2 cut file from the store here.
I have a photo of my best friend's little boy and it's just him outdoors, so I wanted to scrap it as an 'outdoor scene'. I started by cutting the background and colouring it with some Shimmerz sprays in varying shades of yellow using the packaging technique.
I put foam on the back of the whole of the cut file (this took a while, I won't lie, but I love the 3d effect it gives, so totally worth it)! I stuck it onto a patterned paper from the Vicki Boutin Color Kaleidoscope collection which gave me the blue skies I was looking for. 
Then it was a case of layering up embellishments and mounting the photo and adding a title. I don't make boy layouts very often, so I really enjoyed making this - I hope it inspires you in some way. Here are a couple more close ups, catch you next time! 

Nurture | Marcia Dehn-Nix January 8, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today with my first layout of 2019! This week we are focusing on layouts about ourselves, or about our 2019 goals. Well lucky for you, my niece took some family photos for us just before Christmas because my selfie skills are severely lacking. I had to crop my hubby out of this photo so it was just me,lol.

I don't do One Little Word, but I like to see the words other people pick and why. It gets me thinking about what I should try to improve upon in the upcoming year. I chose NURTURE. When you nurture something, it thrives. I spend a lot of time taking care of the people around me that sometimes I don't take care of me. My exercise gets overlooked if I need to find some extra minutes in my day. I am sure many of you can commiserate. But I also want to nurture my relationships. It's important to spend quality time not only with my husband, but my aging parents as well (especially my Dad with dementia). So here is my layout that I created with the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection and awesome digital cut files from JustNick Studios.

I love to create texture and interest on my backgrounds using a white pattern on a white background. It's subtle,not too overpowering. I used the Tin Tile Background  on here. It's a beautiful backdrop for my title created with the Outline Alphas.

This Stem digital cut file is one I use over and over again. I love how delicate it is and it's perfect for layering in your embellishment clusters like I did here.

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

Do you have a word for 2019 that you've chosen? I would love to hear what it is. Thanks so much for stopping by today. 


Love Story | Marcia Dehn-Nix November 12, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. This week on the blog we are posting projects with the theme Thankful. I know with Thanksgiving approaching we are thinking about all the things we are thankful for; family, jobs, health ...  My hubby just had surgery recently to repair a hernia (nothing too serious). I am thankful that I have had this wonderful man by my side for 35 years so I decided to scrap one of our wedding photos. (Don't laugh too much about my 80's hair and hat. lol. I converted the photo to black and white so you can't tell that his tux is baby blue)

I used the new Rustic Floral Frame 2 and cut it out in a metallic gold to frame my photo. Then I added two of the new Rose Clusters backed with pretty pink pattern papers.

To add some depth, I used the Stems 2 digital cut file as a stencil behind the rose clusters as well as under some fussy cut flowers.

Here are the digital cut files I used this week...

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Did I get you thinking about what you are thankful for?


FUN IN THE SUN | Nathalie DeSousa August 10, 2018 06:30

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a Summer/sunny layout.   Summer is slowly coming to an end, so why not bottle those happy, fun memories of the season in a bright and colorful page using a few of JustNick Studio cut files.

 

To start this page, i used some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to create the ink/painted look on the background.  

 

The background cut out was created by welding a few of the Sunburst Background 2 a few times together.  The paper that backs the center of each sun image comes from Fancy Pants' Poolside collection, and brings that sunny feeling to the page.

 

 

 

To create the title of this page, I pulled the Fun in the SUn cut file, and cut it from white cardstock.   To continue the Summer feel of the page, I used Fancy Pants  Hello Sunshine collection to back the letters iin the title.   The colors and patterns in the title balance the sunburst background.

 

 

 

Having a large and colorful title takes care of a lot of the embellishing on the page, so a few die cuts, sticker and stamped sentiments complete this page.

 

 

Love how this page just screams Summer Fun! Love the combination of cut files and fun summer patterrns.

 

Remember to stop by JustNick Studio to check for these and many new cut files available.   There is so much inspiration waiting for you!  As always, I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

 

XO


Fly High / Leslie Berner August 6, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hello!
It's Leslie on the blog today and I hope I find you all well!
 
We have some gorgeous cut files to work with this month and I was immediately drawn to the Butterfly Background 3 design. I love the way the butterflies seem to almost flourish around and off the page. 
I cut two copies of the cut file, I used one for the base of my butterfly cluster whereas I cut out the inside of the wings of the butterflies of the second copy. 
Here you have a closer look at how I did this.
 
I decided that I wanted a lot of layers to make up the butterflies, so I traced around the butterflies and cut out each butterfly from a different patterned paper from the Jen Hadfield, Patio Party collection. This gave the butterflies three layers, however I wanted to tone down the bright colors of the patterned paper butterflies a bit, so I backed the top layer of the butterfly cut file with some tracing paper, and that gave the perfect hazy look I wanted to create. 
Here you can see the all the layers.
The tracing paper tones down all the colors a lot so I had to add some color to the background, and what better way to do this than with some Heidi Swapp Color shine! I used the Hot pink and the Butter, and basically just sprayed it straight onto the background paper, this added just the right amounts f color in the right spots. 
To bring in some more color, I dug through the Patio Party ephemera pack and knew straight away that I wanted to use those beautiful florals. I also did some fussy cutting from one of the patterned papers to add to the floral clusters. 
I first had the idea that I wanted my title to be, 'Fly my pretty!', but then I didn't have enough of those gold thickers, so I changed the title to 'Fly High'.
Oh, and before I forget, I did some hand stitching through the centers of the butterflies, I thought that they needed a spot of pink!
Here is the final layout. 
I hope that you find inspiration and make the cut files work for you, like I did with this beautiful one! By using my craft knife and cutting out the centers of the butterfly wings I made the cut file my own and I loved the effect that the tracing paper gives. 
Here is a link to the Process Video!
Enjoy!
 

 

 

 


Hello - Johanna Valayer July 12, 2018 07:00

Hello everybody ! 
I am Johanna and I am so pleased to join this design team ! I am 24 and I have discovered scrapbooking for almost one year. I directly loved it and the way to keep memories and have fun too ! I am living in France in a beautiful island which is Corsica. For the first layout I used the "spring fling ring" and the "flowers" cut files.
 
 
   
I used the pick me up collection from Paige Evans that I love so much ! I used some scraps to back up the flowers cut files and I arranged them diagonally.
You will see later that I love arranging my layouts diagonally hehe ! Then, I backed up the spring fling ring with the photo and I added some embellishments.
Finally, a touch of color shine, a little stamping and yeah, it is done !
I hope that you have enjoyed this layout, see you xx.

 


Fourteen | Jen McMurtrey June 29, 2018 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

It's Jen today with my final project as a member of the design team, which is a layout using the Age is Just a Number cut file with Lawn Fawn papers.

I began this project by creating the background paper, which was done by splattering watercolor paints on white cardstock. Once the paints had dried, I trimmed the paper 1/4 inch on each side and backed it with patterned paper.

Next, I created the title by cutting the "fourteen" with white cardstock and then shadowing that with another patterned paper. 

 

The embellishments are a hodge podge of goodies collected over the past couple of years. I tried to keep them to a minimum because I really love the bold title and wanted it (and the photo) to be the focus of the layout. The fringe was added to the bottom by chance after seeing it on the floor of my craft room. LOL!

The acrylic stars and sentiment are from Scrapbook Circle. 

Thank you so much for joining me today! It has been a wonderful year with Nicole and the other team members, and I look forward to loads of inspiration from the incoming team.

I hope you are inspired to create today!


Adorable Keychains! | Morgan Langley June 26, 2018 07:00

     Hey crafty friends! Today I am using the cut files a little bit different and incorporating these wooden beads I found at the Dollar Store to make these adorable keychains or charms or a mini album or scrapbook! 

     I used the cut files "Spring Doodle Flowers", "Cactus Jack", and some extra hearts from "Hearts 2" that I used in my last mini album project. 

I tied a knot at the end of my embroidery floss, strung my beads, decorated my 1 1/2 end circle with the cut files, paper punched holes in the bottom and top of the circle to string it onto the floss, and then tied on the keychain loop or mini binder ring! 

 


You Wonderful Thing - Cathy Martin June 16, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone!  It's June, can you believe it?  I know some kids are already out of school, but here we still have a little ways to go, but that doesn't mean I can't break out all the fun summer colors for a layout!  For this one I decided to use the Love Background file.  I cut it from a phrase patterned paper and then backed the hearts with various patterns.  I also put some yellow ink on my background to make my cut file pop!  I grabbed a ton of different washi tapes and created a border for my layout that helped ground the layout but also give it a ton of pop and pattern!  There was already so much going on that I didn't have to do much in the way of embellishing.  I love the little metal "love" paper clip tucked into the cut file as well.  Just a little extra something to add a fun element!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!

 

 


Accordion Mini Album! | Morgan Langley June 9, 2018 07:00
