Hi everyone, it's my turn up on the blog today and I'm continuing to work with the All Boy cut file!  On my last blog post I used several of the words that came with the cut file, but so as to not waste a single bit of paper I added the word "awesome" before I sent the file through my Silhouette.  I didn't know what I would end up doing with it, but I knew that since it was something I could use for almost any layout I decided to cut it.  I'm so glad I did, because I used it for this layout!  A layout that is definitely All Girl :) 

I backed the cut file with bright, bold and fun papers from my stash ( I have some drawers of papers that I keep specifically for the purpose of backing cut files)  and then I chopped the word in half so it would fit on my page better, since the background paper I had chosen had an illustration in the lower left hand side.  I decided to go for a funky, whimsical, and slightly minimalistic feel, and I experimented with my photo by cutting out my daughter from the background.  This is a new technique for me, though I know it's been around for quite awhile.  I am super happy with the results!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today!  You can also check out my Youtube channel to see my process video too!

 

 

 


Dream, Dare, Do, Done Layout by Rachel Lowe: September 01, 2017 07:00

Today I have a gorgeous cut file for you and although it is an older cut file from the store it has to be one of my favourites!

I firstly enlarged it slightly and then cut one in white card stock.

I then went back and cut another in my chosen patterned paper so I could add floral patterned petals (you could cut the petals by hand using the white card stock ones to trace).

I have machine sewn around the white outer of the floral burst before adding my petals. I love the definition and texture it gives.

I have placed the floral burst at the top of my page but you could add it to either of the four sides depending on the design of your layout.

I have used the gorgeous collection by Fancy Pants Designs Dream Bug which goes beautifully with my photo of my daughter about to go horse riding.

I have kept this layout simple and clean because I really wanted the floral burst to be my feature.

Here are some close up photos of this layout:

 

 

Thank you for stopping by today and happy creating!

 

See you next time.

Hi friends -

I hope you had a GREAT christmas! Can you believe that the year has almost come to an end?! I for sure can't! Time flies when you're having fun - or are in the hospital for the first half of the year.

I had a great time this year in the amazing Just Nick Team and can't wait to see what next year brings and what great cut files Nicole comes up with - I bet you are as excited as I am!

Today I have a Holiday project for you - I was able to use any design from the store and decided to go festive and scrap a picture of me and my mom at a christmas market.

I just got in the Merry and Bright collection from Fancypants when I started this project and knew I would use it for my layout.

Looking through the cut files I saw the amazing Holiday Tree design. I wasn't quit sure what do with it, but started by cutting it out of regular cardstock.

Then I had the idea to color the design with watercolors and did that - absolutely love the look! I popped everything up on some foam squares and adhered it down to a patterned paper from the collection.

A little embellishing around my picture, some ink splatters and this page was done!

I hope you enjoyed todays post and I will catch up with you in the New Year!

Stay safe,

Laureen

Hello friends!  It's Lee-Anne here and this week some of the design team members at Just Nick are teaming up with Fancy Pants Designs. I created a pet layout on Elly, my daughter's dog,  using the beautiful Attwell Collection by Fancy Pants Designs.  I love the pretty colors in this collection.  

For this layout, I cut several of the Basic Piechart cut file on white cardstock with my Cameo and watercolored with several colors of Ranger Distress Inks and backed them with papers, flair, a tag, some cute sticky notes, and puffy stickers from the Fancy Pants Attwell Collection. I also added some machine stitching to keep the piecharts in place and give some added texture. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my layout I used the Handcut Letters 2 cut file for the title

and the Basic Piechart cut file.

Fancy Pants Designs Week! May 25, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Nicole here today to share with you a page I made for our team up with the fantastic folks from Fancy Pants Designs!

I used the new Life is Beautiful collection for my page, along with a couple different cut files from the store.

 I started by cutting the Butterfly Background from a simple black & white dot paper from the collection and then cut some smaller butterflies from different papers in the 6x6 paper pad in the same collection. I added some pop dots behind the wings of the smaller butterflies and stitched the two together. 

I also diecut a border strip from the Scallop Edge Strips set and then a title and embellishments from the Life Is Beautiful collection from Fancy Pants (a new favorite of mine)

 Cut files used:

Butterfly Background

Scallop Edge Strips 

Thanks for stopping by our blog today! Now, go head over to the Fancy Pants Designs blog HERE - I have another project up over there using some NEW Fancy Pants products and more of our cut files! 


Hello Little Miss Charmer May 17, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone! Donna here to share with you my newest page using Just Nick Studio cut files

 

First thing I did was brush several shades of purple, lavender and blue on the background (gelatos). After the surface has dried, I brushed gel medium all over the background. I placed the Fancy Filigree background cut file to the wet gel medium and brushed some more gel medium on the cut file

For more texture, I used a stencil and whipped spackle after the gel medium dried. Using the shapes from the cut file as template, I traced this over different patterned papers and placed them in random spaces.

Before placing the photo, I gathered lots of light pink thread and adhered it under the photo. Then clustered little bits of ephemera pieces to the right side of the photo

I used different shades of Faber Castell PITT pastel pencils to darken spaces of the cut file background and doodled around the pieces of patterned papers with black pen to make it stand out.

I had a lot of fun making this page. Would you try this kind of background technique on your next layout? Let me know when you do!

I used Clique Kits May kit "Northern Lights" featuring Atwell collection by Fancy Pants Designs

Cut file used: Fancy Filigree Background

Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting,


Don't Just Follow Your Dreams, Chase Them May 14, 2016 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Marcia here today. School is winding down here in the states and another of my nephews is graduating! I just received his grad party invite in the mail along with a photo and had to use the new Dreamcatcher_1 digital cut file to scrap it. 

I placed my title on the left side of my photo as I did not want to cover up too much of my dreamcatcher. Of course my title had to contain the word dream! To keep the dreamcatcher from being too busy I limited myself to just 3 different pattern papers. I am using the fabulous Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection. I thought that feather pattern paper in the collection was perfect for the dreamcatcher.

Here is the Dreamcatcher_1 cut file I used...

I wanted to share one more layout with you today using the Bits and Pieces Heart Background digital cut file. The new cut files were so awesome I couldn't wait to scrap with them. I created this one on International Scrapbook Day using my May Clique Kit featuring the Basic Grey Urban Luxe collection and the Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection.

I pieced the inside of the heart with different pattern papers keeping to a cool color scheme with blues and purples along with some white and black.

Here is the Bits and Pieces Heart Background cut file I used.

Thanks for stopping by. 


Snorkle Fun May 12, 2016 07:00

Hello followers! It's Lee-Anne here on the blog today and I wanted to share a layout of my oldest son snorkelling.  He loves to travel and when he goes to tropical destinations, he loves to snorkel.

I had fun with the Bits And Pieces Background cut file and one of my favorite things to do is to back the cut files with patterned paper.  

I cut out the Bits & Pieces Background on some white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with some papers from Fancy Pants Design's new Attwell Collection.  I love the colors and thought it would make a great summer page.

Here are some more closeups of my layout:

Today Love Blooms April 25, 2016 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Marcia here today. It's Spring and I have been out cleaning out my flower beds to prepare them for planting this year and my husband has already put my water fountain out. He gave me this fountain as an anniversary gift over 15 years ago. I could probably count the material gifts he has given me over the years on one hand, but when he does buy me something, he knows my heart. Keeping this fountain running is a labor of love for him, a gift he continues to give me each year.

That background paper is so beautiful, but I did not want my photos to get lost. Framing them with the Spiral Background cut twice from white cardstock really helps keep them from blending into the background. The spirals are so similar to some of my floral die cuts too.

Some black Stems really pop against all that vivid color.

I used two different cut files to create my title; "Today" from the Today Forever Always cut file, and the "Love" from the Word 3 cut file.

Here are all the cut files I used today.

Thanks for stopping by.


Hey Cool Kids February 23, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there!

It's Tarrah back with you today to share a newly created scrapbook layout using a few different Just Nick cut files!

 

As soon as I saw the awesome Pinwheel background cut file I just knew I wanted to team it with the Fancy Pants Designs 'Be Different' collection! That 'Rawr' flair is the inspiration behind this layout!  

My 2 boys are my world, they are the subject of most of my layouts! My eldest received a selfie stick and so this photo is the result of the two of them having some fun using it to take selfies!

The other super cool cut file I used was the All Boy set, I cut the word Cool with some patterned paper and cut the star with black cardstock. 

I am loving long titles where I can use many different alphas at the moment...it really makes a great impact on your layout!

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for the ever growing list of new cut files plus your all time favourites are still in store too!

Happy creating!
