Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today!  I'm so glad you join us today on the JustNick Studio blog.  Even here in South Texas, we're feeling the early stages of fall.  I love the colors of fall, even if I don't get to see them often! 

Today, I'm sharing a layout using the new Autumn Windowpanes cut file.  What's great about a grid cut file is that it simplifies the planning for your project because it divides your project area naturally.  Let's take a look at one way to use the cut file.

I first sized the cut file to approximately 11"x11" and then cut it out of the pretty green patterned paper from the Carta Bella Fall Market collection. My base is white textured cardstock, and I decided to sew the grid and also pop it up with 3D foam squares for texture and dimension.

Then the easy part!  I cut a few squares slightly larger than the grid to put in the empty spaces, and I also backed a couple of the leaf files.

After that, I placed my photo on some burlap for additional texture.

Then I added some stickers, ephemera, and enamel dots.

What will you use the cut file to create?  We'd love to see your projects, so make sure you share them with us and tag us on Instagram!

Enjoy your weekend, and have fun creating!

Hello Everyone!  My post today uses the same cut files I used for my project earlier this month.  You can find that post here.  I had created several Fall Apple Cider Treats  to give out to friends.  For those cards, I used the Fall Foliage Background with pink and grey paint to stencil onto woodgrain cards.  I rarely like to throw out anything, and loved all that wonderful paint on my Fall Foliage cut file.

 I backed some of the leaves with black or a sage green cardstock.  I wanted to also copy the same colors I used for my Fall Treats.  Instead of using the entire cut file in my Traveler's Notebook, I trimmed it and adhered it to the right.

I printed my photos small, and then foam adhered one of the photos over the other to create a pretty layered look over the leaves.  Then added die cuts and a wood veneer to finish that side.  I also used the black clothespin and twine from my original treats.

For the left side, I used that same 'fall' image from the I Like Fall cut file.

But then backed it with the painted, stenciled woodgrain card.  Love the look of the paint on the woodgrain peeking through.

I used a 3x4 trimmed down card to add my journaling and then finished this side with date stamping and an acrylic word that tied in with my cut file and also had a similar script font.

A few things I loved about using the same cut files I had used from the treats are: 

  • it gave me my color scheme, which I would not have thought of for Fall.
  • I had a unique look to the Fall Foliage background from using it with paint.
  • no creative block or overthinking since I already had the inspiration from the original project.

Hope this reminds you to not throw out the leftover cut files, but instead use that color or inspiration to create another project with them!  Happy creating!

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here today sharing one of my first layouts featuring my cute English Cocker Spaniel puppy. I got her two weeks ago when she was only 8 weeks old and I just can't stop taking her photo. As I totally adore her I wanted to use a cut file with hearts and found this circle filled with hearts cut file called "Heart is Full Background" and thought it was perfect! 

This is the page I created:

And this is the "Heart is Full Background" cut file I used:

As we got her in the beginning of the Fall I decided to use a Fall collection to scrap her photo. Another reason I wanted to use a Fall collection is the color; our puppy is an orange roan, so Fall colors really! The collection I used is "Celebrate Autumn" by Echo Park. 

Here are a few close-ups of my layout, I love all the chipboards in this collection, like this little fox: 

As the background is kind of "busy", I wanted a title that stood out and used these large black foam letter Thickers. 

My puppy's name is "Ginny" and I used letter stickers from Doodlebug Design to add her name to the layout:  

The enamel hearts and dots I used to fill lots of the white spaces are from Lily Bee Design. 

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at what I created. If you're looking for fun background cut file as well then hop over to the JustNick store, there are so many!

Hi JustNick friends, it's Monique here sharing one of my Autumn layouts with you. For this page I decided to use one of JustNick's (cut) files to embroider the design on my layout instead of cutting the design. I chose the Floral Swag 3 and used it to create this page of my daughter:

Here's the cut file I used: Floral Swag 3

What I did was replacing the blade by a sketch pen and instead of cutting, I let my Silhouette Cameo draw the flowers on my cardstock. I then pierced holes along the lines and used embroidery floss in various colors to hand stitch the flowers and leaves. 

I used Echo Park's "Celebrate Autumn" for my page as I just love the warm colors of the papers and because I love the owls and other cute critters in this collection!

Next I printed two small (3"x 4") photos of my girl, matted these and placed them above the flowers. I decided that the top of my layout was too white and cut a strip of patterned owl paper (4" x 12") and adhered this at the top of my layout, with a small border strip (0.5" x 12") below. 

On both sides of the photos I added a little card and a few chipboard pieces: 

As I thought there was too much white space in the largest flower of my embroidered design I punched 5 small circles and adhered these in the petals of the flower:

This is it. Hope you like it! There are more floral swag cut files in the JustNick store if you want to try some of them out to create Fall projects as well. Can't wait to see what you'll do!

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you happy scrapping!

Hello everybody, 
I'm back for a fall layout, and I am so happy because this is my favorite season ! I love so much to wear jacket, knitted sweater, staying at home with a cup of tea and all of these things !! 
For this layout, I used the new Maggie Holmes collection Willow lane that I love so much. I've first selected papers that match my photo and I have cut these beautiful leaves in them. I decided to add some stitching to add some texture to the layout. 
 
 These leaves are from the cut file named " Stems 5 ", aren't they so cute ? 
Then, I've made a little cluster around the photo, but not too much because I thought the font was enough busy. 
For the title, I used the "Lower case alpha outline" cut file. I chose it because I wanted to back up the title with that beautiful yellow paper. 
I added a little stamp, and a touch of gold with the gold color shine from Heidi Swapp and some sequins, always for the texture. 
I hope that you have enjoyed, see you soon xx.
