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!

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


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.

 


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 - 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!

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!

Ice Cream

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.

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

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

Happy ! by Sophie Delorme May 10, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

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

 

 

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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! This cut file is a must have ! Perfect for any spring themed layouts !

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.

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Kitty | Majken Pullin April 8, 2021 07:00

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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 !

Epic Dude | Majken Pullin March 31, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to wrap up the JustNick Studio Masculine weeks.  Today I'm sharing a layout with a fun, new background cut file called Optical Stencil which I think is perfect to use with black textured cardstock and this Simple Stories Bro & Co collection.  Let's look!

 Epic Dude

Bold colors pop with black and this fantastic background cut file. After cutting out the Optical Stencil background, I backed the triangles with different patterned papers, and then overlayed that on top of the blue-green patterned paper with the tiny triangles.

After layering the photo with more patterned paper and some stickers, the layout came together very quickly!  I put the photo area over five 2x2" squares cut from another piece of papers.  And then I used foam stickers for my title over the photo area.

I wrote some journaling strips to document my son's cuteness. :)

Here's another close-up.

And here is a look at the Optical Stencil cut file:

Optical Stencil

I hope you enjoyed all our masculine projects the last ten days and you are inspired to grab a few to create with!  Don't forget to share your crafty projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us on Instragram using #justnickstudio.

Be safe!

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 !

 

Sophie xx

 

 


Adorable | Majken Pullin March 10, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you today on this almost-spring day.  Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you using the brand new Floral Banner cut file.  Let's take a look.

I sprinkled a little blue watercolor spatters onto my background paper.  While that dried, I cut the banner from white textured cardstock and then backed the banner and the flowers with patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I wanted to additional dimension for the layout, so I used a chipboard title on top of the pretty banner.  I tucked the photo under the banner slightly after layering some matching patterned paper underneath it.

I also love the butterflies, so I fussycut a few!

I added some ephemera and enamel dots.

Here is the gorgeous new cut file I used for this scrapbook layout.

Floral Banner

You can use this pretty banner for so many projects!

I hope you have a great week.

Love You | Majken Pullin February 8, 2021 07:00

Hello lovely crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a Love / Hearts project with you as we get close to Valentine's Day.  I adore hearts - I used to doodle them all the time and fill up notebook pages of them!  I decided to borrow from that theme for my layout today!

I spattered watercolor over my background and set it aside to dry.  I opened and cut various sized hearts from three cut files, along with the "love you", from Love Language, Hearts Alive, and Hey You.  I cut them out from both white cardstock and red patterned paper.  I wasn't sure how I'd use all of them yet, but I am okay with having extra to stash away for the future!

I used "love you" as my title and machine stitched under the letters to emphasize them.  I stitched on my photo mat area as well, and then I used 3D foam tape to pop up the large red heart.

I sprinkled a few of the other hearts around my layout with enamel hearts, heart buttons, and heart stickers.

All those hearts sprinkled on the page just make me happy!

I had to force myself to stop.  :)

This Valentine's Day will be a quiet one, but I'm okay with that. Here are the fun cut files I used on my project today:

Love Language

Hearts Alive

Hey You

I hope you are inspired to spend some time with your significant other and then scrapbook something celebrating love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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 !

Enjoy The Moment | Sophie Delorme January 22, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I used two different cut files for this page. The first one is called “Rustic Winter Frame” and the second one, for my title, is called “Enjoy The Moment”.

 

 

 

I decided to enlarge quite a bit and cut the Rustic Winter Frame on white cardstock. I cut out the inner piece of the frame on watercolor paper, added a little bit of mixed media on my background with watercolors and, once dried, stitched the beautiful frame on the page. As you noticed I also backed the fine line around the frame with blue cardstock that matched my color scheme.

 

 

Then, I added dimensional foam to the back of my whole background before adhering it to a beautiful patterned paper from the Pinkfrech Studio collection named “Oh what Fun !”. I love how it brings depth to the frame and direct the attention to my photo.

 

I created a beautiful floral and leaves cluster on the lower left of the frame, where there already is a bunch of leaves from the cut file. I added ephemeras from the Pinkfresh Studio collection and also punched leaves out of colored cardstock.

 

 

I cut the cut file title on green cardstock and did an offset cut on white cardstock. I adhered the two of them together and added some Glossy Accents (from Ranger) on the green cardstock to make it shine.

 

 

Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops here and there around the page and hand wrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !  I hope you do too !

 

Thank you for stopping by today !

 

I will see you very soon !

Smile | Anna Blades January 14, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today. This week we are creating projects with the new Triple Layer cut files. There are several designs, and they add a cool look to your projects. That’s what I’ve created for today:

 

 

For my layout, I used the Triple Layer Gothic Background. I cut the three layers from yellow, white, and grey cardstock. I glued the three pieces together and put them on top of my background with foam dots to add more dimension.

I chose a striped dot patterned paper for my background and used the leftover cardstock from the cut files to frame it.

Since the background is pretty busy, I didn’t use many elements on my page. I placed a black and white picture of my little daughter in the upper right corner of the page, matted with black cardstock. Then, embellished it with these branches that I cut with a metal die from black cardstock. Also, I put a black label behind the photo.

For my title, I used a large thin alphabet from Felicity Jane Studio, with a puffy sticker with the word “special” on top of it. A very simple design, but I wanted the cut file to be the focal point.

And that’s all for today! These cut files are very fun to use, and I hope you give them a try. Thank you so much for stopping by today and don’t forget to visit the store to find out new cut files every week.

See you soon!


Winter Wonderland | Majken Pullin December 14, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here today to share a winter layout.  I had so much fun creating this project because snow is not something we get to see often here in south Texas!  But occasionally, we get lucky, and 2009 was one such year.  Here's my scrapbook layout:

Winter Wonderland with Snowman 2

I started by cutting out Snowman 2 from white textured cardstock.  I backed him with various patterned paper from Simple Stories Winter Wonderland collection from several years ago...it was perfect for my theme!

On a separate 11.5" x 11.5" piece of textured white cardstock, I lightly brushed an icy blue ink around the edges of where my snowman was going to "sit" on the paper.

And then I adhered my snowman on top of the inky ouline and added buttons to complete his face and body, using the cut file as my template.

Next I layered my photos with patterned paper, stickers, and ephemera and overlapped them with the snowman.

I spinkled some snowflake stickers and enamel dots, added my journaling strips, and then placed the white textured cardstock base over the brown patterned paper so that the left and top edges would show.  I hand-stitched a border using yellow embroidery thread for additional texture, too.

Here is the fun cut file used on today's project:

Snowman 2

Don't be afraid to back cut files in fun ways using patterned paper and more!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a safe and fun holiday season.

The layout is simple but I've added a few extra touches for sparkle and texture.  First I enlarged the Tree Trio 2 trees to my desired size.  I also traced each to create the cut for the back of each. I then cut all 6 pieces out on my Cameo 4 using white textured cardstock.

Next, I created a 9" circle in Silhouette Studio, centered it, and cut it out from a new piece of 12"x12" white textured cardstock.  I used a blending brush to lightly apply Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink around the outside of the circle to create a subtle vignette effect. I put the star patterned paper behind the circle and then sewed along the outside edge of the circle.

To back my trees, I layered holographic dot aqua tulle over the white cardstock back and adhered behind the tree outline using glue dots.

I layered the trees with some fussycut trees and ephemera.

I fussycut some stars and adhered them with puffy stickers and enamel stars on the top of the layout with some phrase ephemera.  It's a simple layout with lots of texture and dimension!  Here's the new Tree Trio 2 cut file:

Memories Together | Sophie Delorme November 19, 2020 07:00

Hello friends !

 

It' Sophie with you today with a beautiful fall layout to share !

 

 

I used the gorgeous "Fall Leaf Swag 2" cut file recently released on the JustNick store, and the "Fall Leaves Outline" cut file as well:

 

 

 

I started my page by using a craft 12x12 cardstock as my base, applied white gesso in the centre and some Shimmerz paints to create a soft mixed media look. 

 

I also added white splatters with acrylic paint. 

 

I cut the cut files on white cardstock with my cutting machine. I backed each leaf with patterned papers from the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio fall collection called "Days of Splendor". As you might notice, I also used the inner pieces of some leaves, sticked them down on patterned paper and cut around them. 

 

I arranged the cut files around my photo in a diagonal line. I have added adhesive foam to the cut files before adhering them to the page. 

 

My photo is a family photo taken a few weeks ago on a beautiful fall sunny morning nearby where I live.The fall colors all around us were just magical !

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo as well.

 

Then, I created a few floral and leaf clusters with embellishments from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection around the photo and on the upper left of the page, and stitched that beautiful tab "Family Time" on the top of the page.

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and stamped the date, and that's a wrap up !!

 

 

These autumnal cut files are so versatile ! They can go for girly or boyish layouts and lead you easily to create your design. 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you for stopping by !

Magical moments | Anna Blades November 10, 2020 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today, with this soft and delicate layout. Flowers are my favorite cut files, and this Rosette Bunch cut file it's not an exception. It's delicate but modern.

I started splattering white acrylic paint on a peach and pink patterned paper. Then, I ripped another patterned paper and distressed the edges. I glued all of them together in the middle of the page.

I cut the Rosette Bunch cut file twice from white cardstock and placed both cut files diagonally. I wanted them to be the focal point of my layout. And I didn't back the cut files because I also wanted the background to be seen through them.

Peeking through the cut files I placed some of these textured leaves. They're very translucent, and they give an ethereal look to the page.

For my title, I only use this die cut with the phrase "magical moments".  I thought it was perfect because it matches the color of the papers and the letters are white as the cut files. I raised it and also the photo to give more depth to the page. Also, I framed my photo with a piece of vellum.

Finally, I scattered some enamel dots around the layout, put a flair button on the right top corner of my photo, and wrote my journaling with a white gel pen. The patterned papers and the die cut are from Pinkfresh Studio.

I really love how it turned out. These soft colors are so pretty. I hope you like it too and it gives you some inspiration for an easy use of cut files. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. See you soon with more ideas!

 


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 !

Happy Halloween | Anna Blades October 27, 2020 07:00

Hi JustNick Friends!

Anna here with you today with a new layout. Today's project is about Halloween. Here in Catalonia, we don't celebrate Halloween, but every year it's becoming more popular. Last year my girls wanted to put on these costumes, and they looked so cute.

To create this page, I used all these cut files that you can find in the shop:

I made some mixed media on grey cardstock and then cut the cut files from white and black cardstock. My little daughter is wearing a big witch hat, so this cut file from the Halloween Icons was perfect.

I cut three bats of different sizes to create more sense of depth. Also, the spider webs look great as part of my background.

For my title, I didn't have any purple cardstock to match the color of the layout, so I decided to use my distress oxide inks with a piece of smooth white cardstock. Then I cut it all with my Cameo.

How cute is this phantom? It really seems to be floating thanks to the foam dots. Finally, I scattered some golden glitter stars to add a shiny touch to the page.

I enjoyed so much creating this layout with these amazing and fun cut files. I hope it gives you some inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and Happy Halloween!!


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.

 

I hope you do too !

 

Thanks for passing by today and I wish you a lovely crafty day !

I don't like photos at all | Anna Blades October 13, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Anna here with you again with a new layout featuring one of the beautiful cut files designed by Nicole. For today's project, I chose the super cute Photo Memories cut file, which I cut large enough to take up most of the page.

I cut the camera from white cardstock and backed it with patterned paper. I raised the small parts with foam to add more dimension to the cut file. And I also stacked the whole camera to the page with a piece of foam too.

For my background, I used a watercolor sheet and made some mixed media with the Magical's from Lindy's. The colors match the papers really well, and it's hard to see it in the photos, but they have a beautiful glossy finish.  I trimmed half an inch from each side, I distressed the edges and put it onto a navy blue patterned paper.

If you look at the picture, you'll see that the title is ironic. My little daughter loves to pose like a model. To build my title, I combined an old Pinkfresh Studio alphabet sticker with the word "photos" from the cut file.

 I didn't have any cardstock from the right color, so I mixed some distress oxide inks in a piece of smooth cardstock to get this dark blue. Then, I cut out the word with my Cameo. I think it looks great!

For this layout, I used the gorgeous Daydream Collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I created three floral clusters to embellish my page and change the original star-shaped camera lens for this circle frame die cut.

And that's it! I hope you like it! Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a crafty week!


My Little Sweet Heart | Sophie Delorme October 2, 2020 07:00 46 Comments

Hello all !

 

It's Sophie with you today sharing an adorable layout using the beautiful Whimsical Frames cut file.

 

 

Here is the cut file:

 

 

I cut the right upper frame three times with my cutting machine on white cardstock, and backed the centre of the frames with a photo of me and my little girl Sabrina, and some patterned papers from the Felicity Janes digital kit named "Amber".

 

Before adhering the frames to my page, I played with some water-colours to create a soft and subtle mixed media background that matched the color scheme of the collection.

 

 

I added adhesive foam under the frames for more dimension. I chose my title, which is a combination of some American Crafts Thickers and Pinkfresh Studio Mini puffy alpha stickers, and centered it just above my photo.

 

 

I fussy cut embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection like the leaves, the pumpkins and the beautiful hearts, as well as a subtitle. 

 

Finally, I added a paper bow, created with a punch, on top of the first frame, as the finishing touch. 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! These frames are so delicate and plenty of tiny details !

 

Remember, you don't always have to necessarily put a photo in a frame. You can embellish them with patterned papers or die cuts, ephemeras, etc. 

 

Here are more close-ups of the layout:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you found inspiration in this layout !

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great crafty day !

Fall | Anna Blades September 17, 2020 00:00

Hey JustNick friends!

It's Anna here with you today. Fall is knocking on the door, so for today's project, I've created a layout totally inspired by the colors and textures of autumn.

First, I started with my background, using the Fall Leaves Outline cut file. I cut a bunch of leaves from white cardstock, and then I glued them onto another white cardstock. By doing it, I created a cool textured background.

I covered the page with clear gesso and used pigment powders to color it. I also made some splatters with watercolors and gold Colorshine from Heidi Swapp.

For my title, I cut four times (from white smooth cardstock) the word "fall" from the TN Fall cut file, and stacked them all together.

I used the distress oxide inks to make this color gradient look. I placed it vertically, overlapping the picture. I love how the left side of the title is "floating". The texture is very important in this layout, so I put this kind of fishnet behind my photo and glued it to the page with foam to give it more dimension.

To embellish the page, I only used a couple of stickers, die-cut leaves, and a gold foil heart. Finally, I framed my layout with a wood grain patterned paper. (I would have liked to make a machine stitching, but my sewing machine was broken...)

And that's it! I hope that this layout inspires you some fall projects. I don't know about you, but this page takes me to the mountain, sitting next to a fire with a hot drink in my hands.

Don't forget to check out the new cut files every week. Have a great day!

See you soon!


Life is better with you | Anna Blades September 7, 2020 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!!

Anna here with you today sharing a new layout. I've used one of the new beautiful cut files and made a super simple layout. It's not a secret that I love flowers, so I chose the Floral Cluster 2 cut file (coming next week)

First, I create a background on a watercolor paper using distress oxide inks and the plastic/smooching technique. I also made some splatters with gold Colorshine spray from Heidi Swapp.

Then, I cut the cut file from white cardstock and place it slightly tilted to the left, just above the background I had created.

For my title, I did something I had never done before: built it only with stamps. I took this alphabet stamp set also from Heidi Swapp, and stamped the phrase "Life is better with you" as my title. Anything else. And I really love the result.

I placed my photo on top of the title, matted it with a couple of patterned papers, and a big tag. I use three die cuts to embellish the picture, and that's it! Papers and die cuts are from Honey and Spice and Emerson Lane collections, both from Heidi Swapp.

A super simple layout, where the cut file is the protagonist, filling most of the page, but in a subtle way. I hope you like this layout and give you some inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don't forget to check out the new cut files every week!

Have a wonderful week!


Love grows | Anna Blades August 26, 2020 07:00

Hey everyone!

Anna here with you today sharing a new layout. This week's theme are stencils. Have you ever used a cut file as a stencil? Take advantage of your cutting machine ad create your own stencils with the cut files, it's so fun!

For today's project, I've used the Herring Bone stencil cut file to create my background. I did it with the fossilized amber distress oxide ink because I wanted a soft look behind those flowers. In some parts the color is stronger and in others it's more faded.

I love how it peeks from behind the photo and the embellishments, but doesn't cover the whole page. The good thing about making your own background with a stencil is that you can fill exactly only the parts of the page that you want, with the pattern that you want.

I was in the mood to use flowers (as always), so I made these big blue flowers with the Build a flower 4 cut file. I cut them pretty big, in three shades of blue, because my sister and my brother in law are wearing blue trousers.

To add more detail I also cut some leaves with the Stems 4 cut file. I cut them from white cardstock and used distress oxide ink to dye them green.

I put some embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio and three blue puffy hearts from Felicity Jane Studio. The black foam title and hearts are from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Finally, I did a machine stitching all around the layout with a light blue thread, just to frame it. I also placed two blue little banners on the upper left corner.

As you can see, you can create a beautiful layout using your cut files and no pattern paper. I hope you like this layout and gives you some inspiration. Don't forget to visit the store every week to check the new cut files.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a crafty week!


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 !

 

Sophie xx

 

 


Hello | Anna Blades August 14, 2020 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!!

Anna here with you today sharing a new layout. I really love how it turned out and I hope you like it too. I decided to document this photo of my daughters feeding the ducks in the park. I like it so much when a picture matches a collection so well.

For this page I used the Graphic Background cut file:

I cut it from pink cardstock. I think it gives a girly look to the layout and it doesn't stand out too much. I raised it all with foam. I love dimension on my layouts and how shadows create depth. Maybe that's the secret of an eye-catching page.

I decided to create my own title with one of the alphas from the shop. The Type it font cut file is definitely my favorite. The font is so classy and elegant, and I love how it looks in a big size. It also has thousands of possibilities.

This shade of blue matches my background paper and embellishments so well and contrasts with the pink cut file below. With a little alphabet sticker from Pinkfresh Studio, I finished my title. I love mixing fonts in my titles.

I also raised the word Hello with foam and put a floral die cut behind it and a blue flower overlapping it. I added two puffy stickers to complete it.

For this layout, I mixed some collections from Pinkfresh Studio and these die cut flowers from My favorite story collection were just perfect.

I hope you like it and gives you some inspiration. And I encourage you to use the alphas cut files to create your own titles because they give you endless possibilities for your titles.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!


Soul Full Of Sunshine Layout | Sophie Delorme August 12, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone !

 

It's Sophie with you today sharing a layout featuring a beautiful wreath cut file called "Spring Wreath 2"

 

 

 

I started my page with a light blue cardstock as my background, and added to it plenty of ink and white acrylic paint splatters that matched my color scheme.

 

I cut the cut file with my Silhouette on white cardstock. I backed the delicate flowers with patterned papers from the beautiful Carta Bella Paper "Oh Happy Day " collection.

 

I adhered the cut file only in a few spots so that some of the leaves and flowers are popping a little bit. I placed two photos of my sweet Sabrina in the center of the wreath and backed them with tissue paper, adhesive foam and patterned papers. 

 

 

I fussy cut a few flowers out of patterned papers to create a big cluster of flowers on the right lower side of the wreath, and to a smaller extent on the left upper side as well. 

 

 

My title is a Die cut from the same collection, as well as the label on which I wrote a little note. 

 

This layout came together quickly and beautifully. I find that wreath cut files are always fun and easy to work with ! It dictates your design naturally and all that is left to do is embellishing it as you wish !

 

Here are a few more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page and that beautiful cut file today, thank you for passing by !

You are my happy | Anna Blades July 29, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to the JustNick Studio blog. This is Anna and for today's project, I was in the mood to do some mixed media background.

I love big title cut files, so I used the "You are my happy" cut file, which is fantastic because you have three different styles with the same phrase purchasing just one cut file.  

First, I used my watercolor markers from Vicki Boutin to create a watercolor background with three colors: pink, yellow, and mint. Then, I used a stencil by Paige Evans and white texture paste to give more texture and interest.  I cut one of the titles from the "You are my happy" cut file from white cardstock and outlined the capital letters with a black marker to make them stand out.

I cut just the word "happy" from pattern paper because I wanted it to be more visible. This way it matches the rest of the page too. I also covered the heart of the cut file with a heart that I fussy cut from one of the papers from the collection that I used.

To embellish my page I used the "Floral swag  5" cut file. I cut it from white cardstock and placed it in the upper right corner. I was thinking to color it with watercolors, but finally, I decided to leave it white. I ripped four stripes of pattern paper and glued them at the top and bottom of the page. I love this floral paper.

For this layout, I used an old collection from Simple Stories: "Posh". It's one of my "old faves", but now I only have a few bits left. Look at that little bird, isn't it the cutest?

And that's it! I hope you like this layout and I hope it gives you some inspiration. Don't forget to check out the new cut files in the store every week!

Have a crafty week! See you soon!


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!


ALL FLOWERS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 10, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone ! My name is Sophie Delorme and I am more than thrilled to share my very first layout for JustNick with you today !

 

 

I created a page featuring my little girl and our dog Fiona enjoying the early days of spring. I used the gorgeous Cut File called "Loopy Circle Background" for my page, that reminded me of little roses.

I started by applying watercolors on thick white cardstock that matched my color scheme as my base for my page.

I backed the cut file with different lovely patterned papers from the Jen Hadfield "Hey, Hello" collection, and used some goodies from that same collection as well as from the Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters collection. I added adhesive foam in the back of the cut file before adhering it to ma page.

 

I fussy cut plenty of flowers from the Jen Hadfield patterned paper called Yellow Roses to embellish ma page. 

My title comes from the Heidi Swapp Planner Mini Stocker Book. I wrote down my journaling on little stripes of paper and added the date. I applied a few Nuvo Crystal Drops here and there on my page as the finishing touch !
And here it is ! I love the end-result and hope you do too ! That cut file is so beautiful and easy to use !
Here are a few close-ups.

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you so much for stopping by !

Best day ever | Anna Blades June 1, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Anna here today with you sharing my first TN spread (the second in my life) for JustNick Studio. I've been scrapbooking for several years and I've never felt so interested in this type of project. But now I must admit that I really enjoyed it!

To create this TN spread I used two of the new June cut files: TN Beauty and TN Best Day Ever, and mixed them with a lot of fun techniques.

For the left page, I used the title from the TN Best Day Ever as a stencil to apply the new texture paste from Heidi Swapp and run it through my Minc machine with the Champagne gold foil. I love the result.

I haven't used my fuse tool for a long time, so I decided to create a pocket shaker with a patterned paper and some beautiful sequins from Neat and Tangled.  On top of it, I placed the floral page from the TN Beauty cut file. I love all the sequins peeking up through the flowers.

I did it a little bit smaller than the left page, so I framed it with the same patterned paper on the left page.

All papers and embellishments are from "Emerson Lane" and "Honey and Spice" collections by Heidi Swapp.

I hope you like it and I encourage you to give a TN spread a try! They're so much fun to do!

Have a wonderful week!

See you soon!


Snap Story | Vicki Parker May 18, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my very last layout for JustNick. I have really loved my term on the design team - Nicole's cut files are fabulous! Today's layout looks like this...

I used two cut files - the first is called Photo Memories and you can find it in store here.

And the second is called Capture Every Moment and is in store here.

I mostly used Maggie Holmes Sweet Story collection for this layout and started by tearing a piece of the rainbow paper to put along the bottom of my layout and to back the camera cut file (which I did as a whole rather than individual pieces).

I then added some clear gesso to my white cardstock and used Distress Oxide Inks to add a watercolour effect on the page in similar colours to the paper.

I mounted my photos with the frames cut on patterned paper and arranged them above the camera - I was going for the effect of showing a sequence coming from the camera itself.

Finally, I embellished with various chipboard and stickers from the collection and the layout is complete.

I hope it inspires you in some way. Thank you for all the love for my layouts over the past year, it's been wonderful working on this team - maybe one day I'll be back ;-)

 

 

 


happy // Sarah Bargo May 16, 2020 07:00

Hey paper peeps Sarah here! I wanted to share a fun and easy way to use a cut file on your travelers notebook layouts! I used the word happy from the Spring Words cut files!

I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Oxide ink refill and watercolored a little bit directly onto the word!

I always leave a few spots of the surface white that I'm watercoloring, I think that reveals the "magic" of the watercolor technique!

Do you like creating travelers notebook mini albums? I love them I think they're so much fun! Especially when you have a cute cut file to put on the page like these cute Spring words!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a happy scrappy day! 

 


Kindness Everyday | Majken Pullin May 5, 2020 07:00

Hello friends!  Majken here with you today.  I hope everyone is taking a big, deep cleansing breath as we head into a new month.  Is it just me, or did April feel like it was 897 days long? Well, in any case, it's a nice time to celebrate the small things --  like when siblings are kind to one another.  My daughter and son do get along for the most part, but when you can see the love, those are golden times.  <3  I'm so glad I was able to capture a spontaneous moment of their love on camera a few years ago.  Let's take a peek!

Kindness Everyday

For my layout, I first found my two photos and muted the photo color saturation so the bright colors in the background wouldn't be too bold and overpower (but not so much to make them fully black and white) before printing them.  I pulled out the Pebbles This is Family collection.

I spritzed some Tattered Rose and Black Soot Distressed Oxide ink and water onto my white textured cardstock.  While I let that dry, I cut the Kindness Everyday cut file out on one of the floral patterned papers from the collection using my Cameo 4.

I also matted my photos using patterned papers and black textured cardstock.

I love a bold title on a scrapbook layout!  I cut nine rectangles out and adhered them to the edges of my 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" white cardstock background, adhered that to a 12x12 black cardstock, and then sewed around the edge of the white and over the pink rectangles.

Some ephemera and enamel dots finished the layout!

This was a fun layout to pull together, and I hope you are inspired to create using cut files and pretty paper!

Here is the cut file used on today's project:

We appreciate you stopping by the blog today!  Stay safe, be crafty.

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout which I hope you will find inspiring in some way!

 

I used an older cut file called Up in the Air, which you can find in store here

 

I started by cutting just the top left balloon three times - one big and the other two smaller. I used one of the Paige Evans Bloom Street papers to back all three balloons and then added a little bit of subtle watercolour to each to add a slightly more 'grungy' feel. I also put a very light blue wash over the background cardstock so that it gave the impression of sky.

I also painted the baskets of the balloons in coordinating colours rather than leave them white.

I layered up my photo with some pocket life cards and then used some Bloom Street florals to embellish, together with a PinkFresh layered sticker and some Bramble Fox clouds.

Finally, I added by title using the Vicki Boutin Let's Wander Thickers which I adore and will be sad to run out of! And that's it! I do hope you like it - thank you so much for looking. See you next time!

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout using the gorgeous new April releases.

 

 

I used Spring Wreath 2 which you can find in store here.

 

 

I started by cutting the wreath on some patterned paper from Vicki Boutin's Let's Wander collection and sticking it slightly off centre on a sheet of Heidi Swapp Art Walk paper in a similar greeny/blue shade.

 

 

I wanted to do lots of layering around my photo, but leave the wreath pretty much as it was because it's so, so pretty.

 

 

I used lots of die cuts and stickers from the Jen Hadfield, Hey Hello collection to layer up the photo and I also added a few enamel dots and paint splatters. 

 

 

I finished with the title "Love" using some Amy Tangerine Thickers. I was happy with how this came together - it's lovely and subtle and really showcases the cutfile and photo. Thanks for looking!
