JustNick Cut File Store

Let's Go | Marcia Dehn-Nix August 25, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today with more Back To School inspiration. I swear, I have the cutest, happiest nephew! Here he is showing off his new backpack. 

I used 5 digital cut files to create this layout. The Broken Mirror Background cut file allowed me to use up some scraps filling in the negative space with different pattern papers.

To create movement on my layout, I wanted my title to go up one side of my photo and across the top. To connect the two, I modified the arrow from the All Boy digital cut file, making it much longer. This allowed me to fold it to fit around my photo. I used two different fonts for my title, the Type It Font and the OutLine Alphas. I love mixing fonts to create more interest in my titles.

To finish framing my photo, I tucked the Today File Folder underneath my photo

Here are the cut files I used today ...

I even have a process video for you. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!


High School Smile August 23, 2017 07:00

Hi there!

 

It is Nathalie back today with a new layout to share with you.  Can you believe it is time to get the kids ready to go back to school -here in Canada-?  With that in mind, i had to document the picture of  my kids on their first day of high school (gr. 9 & 11 respectively).

 

 

The idea for this page was to recreate a large file, for that i trimmed the white cardstock to fit inside the layout, and used the  File Folders cut file to create a large tab that hides under the layout's mat.

 

 

 

I glued the tab to the page's mat, followed by the trimmed cardstock.  Then a bit of mixed media was used to create the background behind the picture and title (I wanted to be authentic to my kids's folders at the end of the year, so a bit of distress fits them to a tee!).

 

 

 

 

 I am a sucker for large titles, so i created the one featured in this page by welding  the letters from the Shattered Alpha cut file (spelling High School) with the "Smile" from the Word 4 cut file.   Then used papers from Bella Blvd, to back the spaces, and attached it on top of the mixed media background using some foam tape.

 

 

 

Finally to complete the page, I added the b/w version of the picture to the side of the title.  The Word Tab cut file was handy to create the small tab that was added to the cluster on the pictures.   A few more small details complete the page.

 

I love the final look of the page!  I hope this inspires you to document those 1st day of school smiles using some of the JustNick Studio cut files.  As for me, I will be doing a small happy dance once they leave for school, followed by a few tears of sadness as they are leaving me!.

 

You can always contact me if you have any questions on how this page came together.

 

See you all soon!

 


PageMaps round up! June 12, 2017 07:00

Did you have a chance to see all the projects our team created for our team up with PageMaps the past few weeks?

I had a chance to play along too and created this page using our File Folders, and Lowe Case Alphas cut files.

Cut files don't have to overtake your project. Yes, they can be the total focus of your page, but I wanted to use some cut files in a more minimal way on my project. I cut the file folders from a 6x6 paper pad and layered them behind my photo.

It adds a paper layer but with a little fun too right! I also added some co-ordinating paper strips around the edge of my page, I could have cut some stars on my digi machine, but went with glittery pre-made ones instead.

I finished the page off with the Lower Case Alphas cut file for my title on a quick diecut word bubble.

If you haven't already, check out the June PageMaps for all the sketches and takes our team did with them!

Enjoy The Moment April 11, 2017 07:00

Hello Just Nick fans! It's Lee-Anne here today sharing another layout. For this project, it's all about words and/or sentiments. Yesterday was National 
Sibling Day and I wanted to scrap a layout of my two older kiddos who have always been exceptionally close and still are today.  

I chose the sentiment "Enjoy The Moment" for my page.  For good measure, I also used the File Folders cut file that I cut twice on patterned paper and placed one behind the photo and the other behind the felt flower. 

The black title of my project, was cut on black card stock with my electronic cutting machine.  To give it more of a dimensional look, I cut it out five times, stacked them and glued them down with a liquid glue pen. I think black titles make multi-colored layouts pop and I love the contrast.

The circle technique was inspired by a class that my friend and Just Nick owner, Nicole Nowosad taught at Crop & Create Calgary last month. I love this technique!

Here are the cut files I used from the Just Nick store:

Superfecta of Cut Files June 07, 2016 07:00

Hey there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share my latest project with you. This week, Nicole has challenged a few of us on the design team to use four or more of the Just Nick digital cut files on our projects! That's quite the superfecta!! It was a challenge for me but I did just that!

To create the above layout, I used the following 4 digital cut files from Just Nick;

This was a bit of a challenge for me as I like the elements on my layouts to have purpose or meaning. There needs to be some relevance to the story, not just elements thrown on there for the sake of having more. Each of the 4 (or more) cut files needed to be on the layout for a reason.

The Let It Shine Background and the "innards" of Radiate combined to make the sun - easy, no problem there. The new font, Script Font, I used a sketch pen with then cut out the outline of the file with my Silhouette for the title. Then the "today" file folder from the File Folders collection served well as a tie in. As the file is cut from a multi colored patterned paper, it served well to tie the multiple elements and colors together.

I love how the title "sunshine" turned out using a sketch pen and then digitally cutting that file! It took a bit of manipulating to get the individual letters to weld but fortunately Nicole leaves lots of "extra" on the letters. This additional swoosh, allows you to either cut or overlap the swoosh of the letters to create a symmetrical word. I can't wait to do this again and use my watercolors or Gelatos within the pen outline!

Today I challenge you to create a layout using 4 or more Just Nick digital cut files on your next project! Thanks for stopping in today!

 

 


Hello Canter Layout January 27, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a layout created using Nicole's amazing digital cut files. These files are so incredibly easy to modify to suit your needs or use "as is", both of which I have done on this page celebrating my daughter's first time cantering a horse. Intentionally.

I used three of the cut files here;

- Arrow Set 1

- Card Sentiments 1 (yay)

- File Folders (noted)

The biggest adjustments that I made to the files are seen on the left hand side of this page, with regards to the arrows. As I wanted sufficient arrows to fill that space moving down the page, I omitted the text from a few of them and cut in various widths. The arrows make for a commentary of what an amazing feat my daughter accomplished.

I like to have my journaling in a nice neat place, tucked away. It just makes the appearance of my layouts look "neater". What better place to house journaling than on a file folder?

Thanks for stopping in today! Be sure to check out all the new files that are uploaded weekly! Soon we will be showing you how to incorporate some of those love-ly files Nicole has created into your Valentine and love crafting.


The Wild Life January 18, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  So excited to be sharing my first official post for the JustNick store!

I'm still scrapping my photos from fall, and wanted to use a couple "natural" looking cuts for my page.

I used Echo Park's "The Wild Life" collection for my page and three cut files from the store:
The leaves I cut out of patterned paper and just tucked under my photos.

Although these trees are probably intended for Christmas pages, they went perfectly with my "Adirondack" theme!   I cut them from pattered paper and inked them a bit to match the greens I wanted.  I layered a few tree stickers over the top, too.

Finally, I wanted to have a little bit more space to write my journaling, but didn't want it to take up space on the page, so I cut out this "today" file card from the File Folders cut files and tucked it behind my photos.

I'm really looking forward to sharing my Just Nick projects over the next couple of months!  Thanks for stopping by!
