JustNick Cut File Store

This Year | Monique Liedtke January 2, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Monique here wishing you all a wonderful 2020! I hope you had a fabulous New Year's Eve! Today I'm sharing a layout with my resolutions for the new year. I have to admit that I tend to forget my resolutions pretty quickly, but I do like to make them nonetheless. 

Here's the layout I created, using the "Say What" and "This Year" cut files:

These are the cut files I used: "Say What" and "This Year" (will be added to the store soon!), both of which I cut from a sheet of white cardstock:

I'm a huge fan of Doodlebug Design's products so I chose a mix of their collections to create this page. My resolutions were typed in Word and then printed on five different pieces of patterned paper (Doodlebug's Petite Print). Next I cut them in the right shape using my Silhouette Cameo.

Before adhering the word bubbles cut file I added some yellow paint to my white cardstock background (sprayed this on a piece of plastic packaging and wiped it over my background paper). 

As Doodlbug's papers are already so colorful I decided to leave the cut files white and use a black & white photo. I matted the photo on two pieces of patterned paper and created a little cluster on the left side: 

On the right side of the photo I wrote a little more about my resolutions:

I also added a few stickers here and there and after adding the compulsory machine stitching I considered my layout done! 

Hope you like it! Thank you so much for stopping by on this second day of the year. Don't forget to check out the JustNick store for these and many more fabulous cut files! 


Star Player | Monique Liedtke September 21, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here today sharing a layout about my soccer playing son. Last season his team became champion, and the photos of that accomplishment had to be scrapped of course. I used the "Star Cluster" cut file as my son and his team mates were the stars of the season! 

Here's the layout I created:

and this is the "Star Cluster" cut file I used:

For this cut file I decided to use a strip of three small photos rather than one large photo and I really love the result. 

The papers and embellishments I used are Doodlebug's "French Kiss" collection. I love the red, blue and pink color combination!

Here are a few close-ups: 

To add a bit of extra color to my page, I adhered little enamel hearts to the centre of all stars. 

I remember when I just started scrapbooking I almost never added journaling to my layouts. Looking through my albums from that early period I really regret that. So now I make sure to always add a bit of journaling, whether it's at the front of my layout or at the back. It adds so much and it's so easy to do. 

And here's already the last close-up:

This is it. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. Don't forget to check out all the awesome cut files Nicole has in her JustNick store! and if you use one of them don't forget to show us what you created on either our facebook page or on Instagram using #JustNickStudio. 

Explore | Monique September 4, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends, it's Monique here and I'm so excited that I get to share my latest layout with you. This week we're using "words" from the JustNick store on our projects and I knew straight away which word I wanted to use. I just love those large words where you can fill the separate letters with various patterned papers, so I chose the word "explore", which was added to the store only last month. This cut file fitted the vacation photos I wanted to scrap perfectly! 

Here's the layout I created:

My husband and oldest son went to Spain on a one week vacation, just the two of them and had a great time together. When I waved them goodbye I made them promise to take some photos for me to scrap and that's what they did! 

And this is the cut file I used: "Explore"

Apart from this cut file I also used the "Summer" cut file:

The word "summer" at the bottom was just perfect to place over the word "Explore". 

One of the dilemmas I have when using a large word cut file, is what size photos to use and where to place them. In this case I decided one a vertical photo strip with three small photos. I really love how this turned out!  

To scrap my page I used the new "I Heart Travel" collection from Doodlebug Design I had just bought. I really love how I was able to use all the collection's fun patterned papers to fill the letters. 

Here are a few close-ups of my layout:

How I love these large word cut files! I hope I've been able to inspire you to give them a try too, if you haven't already done that. Check them out in the JustNick store here

 Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today! Wishing you happy scrapping!

Souper! | Monique Liedtke August 22, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here today sharing a fun layout featuring the Beach Umbrella Background 2 cut file.

I have wanted to scrap this photo of my son for ages! At the time he worked with Domino's Pizza and this particular evening he delivered a few pizzas at our place. I thought the beach umbrellas perfectly resembled sliced pizzas and so I decided to use this cut file for the background of my layout. I really love the result! Here's what I created:

And this is the Beach Umbrella Background cut file (a.k.a. sliced pizza background):

Don't you agree that the beach umbrellas resemble sliced pizzas?! 

Except for this cut file, I also used Doodlebug's "So Much Pun" collection to scrap my photo. 

Here are a few close-ups:

I cut the cut file from Doodlebug's Tangerine cardstock and because of the bright color of this cardstock I didn't need a whole lot of patterned paper for the rest of my layout. In the end I matted the photo on two small pieces of patterned paper, added a 4" x 6" card and a few die-cuts & stickers, a strip of typed journaling and some machine stitching and my page was done. 

I'm a huge fan of background cut files and can see myself using this one for a few other layouts as well. Don't forget to check it out in the JustNick store! In the store you can find quite a few other fun background cut files as well!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day!

LONDON VISIT | Monique Liedtke April 9, 2019 07:00

Hello everyone, it's Monique here today with another project to share. For today's layout I was looking for a cut file with large letters and after browsing through the JustNick store I found the "Striped Alpha" cut file.

Last year when we were on vacation in the UK, we decided to reserve one of our days for a quick visit to London as my boys had never been there before. We had the day of our lives and so this needed to be scrapped! 

Here's the page I did:

I used Doodlebug Design's Sweet Summer collection and chose the Punch Plaid sheet to cut the letters from. As soon as I placed the letters on the white background it all looked so colorful. I really love this about Doodlebug's products! 

This is the "Striped Alhpa" cut file I used:

I hand cut the photo of my boys posing in front of the Tower Bridge to fit into one of the "O"'s:

All the other letters were decorated using one of more of the Doodlebug die-cuts and stickers:

With a bit of machine stitching and a date stamp my page was finished!

I really love this cut file and know I'll be using it for a few more layouts. Maybe next time I'll weld the letters together.

If you like this page and think you might give it a try too then maybe check the JustNick store to see all the other alpha cut files as well. I think the Marquee Alpha cut file would be perfect for a page like this too! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Love of my life | Monique Liedtke February 7, 2019 07:00

Hello JustNick fans! I can't believe it's February already! Only one more week and it's Valentine's Day! To be honest, at our home we don't really "celebrate" this day. My husband thinks Valentine's Day is too "commercial" and says he'd rather buy me flowers or chocolate on a "normal" day, rather than being forced to buy me something on February 14th. I, on the other hand, wouldn't mind getting something, like flowers, on the 14th, lol! But whether or not he buys me flowers, I love him to pieces! I also love all the Valentine's scrapbook collections and can't resist buying them. So for today's blogpost I thought I would use one of them. For this layout I used Doodlebug's "French Kiss" collection, combined with the beautiful cut file from the JustNick store "Free Love".

And this is the cut file I used: Free Love

Isn't this cut file just perfect?! I love these open letters, where you can add your own patterned papers behind them! I used the 6"x 6" paper pad as I think the smaller patterns look better in a word of this size. Here are a few close-ups:

To color the white background I used both a brush with stamping ink and some spray mist. I'm trying to do something else than using pure white cardstock backgrounds. I think I like it, it's a bit more colorful. 

So, if you're looking for more "love" cut files to create your own Valentine's scrapbook page, then make sure to check out the JustNick store! There are so many beautiful cut files you can use! 

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look! Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved one(s)!


Snow Much Fun | Monique Liedtke January 31, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Monique here with a fun winter layout. Winter has finally arrived here in The Netherlands, including a little snow (yay!), so now I'm in the mood to scrap some winter photos. As I haven't had the chance to take them I'm scrapping a few of my many older photos. 

These photos were taken ten years ago (how time flies!) and I loved seeing them again! 

I used the cut files "Hey Frosty" and "Joy" from the JustNick store to scrap this page:  

These are the cut files I used:

Before I got started on my layout I chose all the "non Christmas" papers from the Doodlebug collection "Christmas Town" and selected four papers to cut four snowmen from.

Next I cut the word "Joy" from a piece of white cardstock and used glimmermist to spray it in a beautiful green color.

I used the snowmen for the background and placed these strategically on a white cardstock background paper: two on the left side and two on the right. Next I matted the two photos and placed these on top of the snowmen with the title (sort of) in between. The next part was simple, I just added lots of Doodlebug embellishments, hand journaling and a date stamp! When I was finished I decided to add a bit more color by cutting 1 cm off the entire layout (on all four sides) and placing it on a colorful dotted patterned paper. I really loved the result! After adding my usual bit of machine stitching and a few drops of paint I was done!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today to have a look at my page. If you want to check out this cut file or any other "winter" cut file in the store, just click HERE.

Wishing you a wonderful day and happy scrapping!

You are my happy | Monique Liedtke September 13, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Monique here with you today. For this week's "Words/Phrases" assignment I chose the "You are my happy" cut file as it was perfect to scrap these fun photos of my daughter posing in a huge Starbucks cup:

Last October my daughter went on vacation with her friends and was instructed to send me a lot of fun photos and this was one of them. As she adores coffees from Starbucks, both warm and cold, this "You are my happy" cut file was just what these photos needed! 

The "Cream and Sugar" collection I used is from my favorite manufacturer "Doodlebug Design". I just love the bright colors, fun prints and the adorable die-cuts and doodle-pops in this collection.  

I sized the cut file to fit my 12" x 12" paper and cut it from the "Sugar Doodles" paper. I love how it turned out:

To adhere the cut file on my page I used just a tiny bit of adhesive and added a little machine stitching here and there both so it won't fall off later-on and to add a bit of extra texture to my page. 

This is it from me today. The "You are my happy" cut file is perfect for so many occasions, I'm sure I'll use it again and again. Don't forget to check out all the words and phrases cut files in the JustNick store. If you use one on your layout too then don't forget to share it either on our facebook page or tag us on Instagram

Thank you so much for stopping by and wishing you happy scrapping!

This is the life | Monique Liedtke July 26, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Monique here today sharing a fun summer layout created with a couple of JustNick's cut files. 

Last May my family and I spent a few days in Spain and one of the activities we undertook was walk (climb) to the cross on top of the "Sierra Helada" that towers over Benidorm. For me, this was anything but easy, untrained as I am, but I did it! (The kids and my hubby seem to do the climb with much less effort!) Of course my daughter took a "selfie" and so I could do a layout about this! Here's what I made:

For this page I used the "Around The World" cut files:

I cut out the globe in almost 12"x 12" size and used that for my background and built the rest of the page on top of it. 

I used Doodlebug Design's "Sweet Summer" collection which I found just perfect for these travel cut files and my holiday photo. 

Here a few close-ups of the other cut files I used from the "Around the World" bundle: first the tag with the word "vacation" cut out:

Next the "Right Here" cut file:

And last but not least, the Geo Tags:

I really love this set of cut files! They are so perfect to use for lots more of my travel photos!

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog to take a peek at my layout. If you use these cut files too, don't forget to share on our facebook page! I would love to see what you'll make!
