JOY | 12 days of Giveaways | Anna Blades December 11, 2020 07:00 4 Comments
Hi JustNick friends!
Anna here with you with a new layout, featuring this beautiful cut file that is FREE today in the shop for the "12 days of Giveaways". Obviously, it's called "Joy".
I went for a very simple design, and I wanted the cut file to be the focal point of my page. I cut it from white cardstock and backed it with vellum.
I placed it almost in the center of the page, below three square photos of my daughters, and raised it with foam squares to add more volume and depth.
For my background a chose a light craft cardstock. I love how it matches the color of the photos and makes the white stand out.
I also used the word love from the Peace Love Joy cut file, which will be available on December 19th.
With a gold alphabet, I wrote "Christmas 2020" above the photos. The ampersand between Joy and love is from the same alphabet. To embellish my layout I used some die cuts from the "Merry & Bright" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I love how it turned out, simple but festive. I hope it inspires you, and remember that you can get this cut file FREE today.
This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December 11th 2020.
No purchase necessary. The correct cut file must be loaded to the cart in order for discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Merry Christmas and happy crafting!!

Hello scrappy friends! Claudia here and it's Day 12 of our 12 Days of Givaways.
Today's freebie is the Christmas Tree cut file:
Use the code TREE4FREE during checkout to get this cut file for free.
The code is only valid on December 12th, 2019 until midnight CST.
For my layout I'm using a photo taken during Christmas last year of me, my mom and my grandmother. I created this layout with the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection which is one of my favorite winter/Christmas collections as I adore the colors.
I spent quite a lot of time layering this cut file but I think the end result was well worth it. In some parts I layered some vellum on top of patterned paper which is not something I had done before but I really love the look of it.
If you back a lot of cut files I can definitely recommend having a gold glittered paper in your stash (or any other glitter paper if gold is not your thing) because it will look good on pretty much all cut files.
I had a lot of fun embellishing this layout and am happy with the way it turned out.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout!

Nathalie back with you today. I hope you all have been visiting the JustNick Studio blog and collecting all the awesome designs that Nicole has created.
Today's free cut file, HOLIDAY LAURELS, is one of my favorites of the past 12 days! Love the designs, and their versatility, so i put them to work on a layout all about my beautiful mami.
It is no secrets, i love florals, so i decided to use the floral image of the Holiday Laurel cut file to create the cut out on my page. However, they were not placed as in the original image; instead i chose to layer them so that they create a cascading movement on the page.
I used Crate Paper's Merry Days collection to back the flowers and leaves in the cut out, and then attach them to one of the collection's paper using foam adhesive.
I used the spaces created by the movement of the cut outs to add the picture of my mami -on a very recent shopping trip- and my journal lines. A few embellishments is all that was needed to complement the picture.
To complete the page, first i added another cut out -created using the same cut file- at the end of the floral cut out so that it will elongate the floral movement. The space below this was used to add the title, which was created using the Merry Wishes cut file, a bit of Vicki Boutin gold glaze makes it stand out on this page.
Enter the code: LAURELFREE at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 11, 2018.
No purchase necessary. Coupon code must be entered to receive this item for free. No refunds will be given.The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Cannot wait to see what you create with this cut file!

Welcome to Day 13 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
This cut file was SO fun to use! I cut the tags different sizes using a mix of kraft, white, and patterned card stock. Then I backed the cut outs with another scrap of paper and was ready to add some stitching accents!
On some of the tags I used a ruler to mark straight, different sized lines with a pencil and then stitched them, some I stitched around the image, others I stitched snowflakes, and a couple I did some french knot stitches!
I put thread or bakers twine through the hole of each tag and put adhesive so they would stay in position on my layout!
For my background I just sewed on some scraps of Christmas paper with my sewing machine using a mix of white and red threads. I added my photo and some wood snowflakes and Christmas trees and then the layout was complete!
Thank you for stopping by and make sure to get this file (HOLIDAY TAGS 2) today FREE with the code TAGFREE at checkout! Come back tomorrow for the 14th Day of giveaways!
14 Days of Giveaways - Day 5 | Maryám Perez December 5, 2017 07:00
Welcome to Day 5 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
For today’s projects, I decided to create two Christmas cards. What I did was cut the trees with my Silhouette Cameo and then back them with a piece of vellum. After that, I did the same steps of a shaker card and repeated the same with the second tree.
In the end, I added some embellishments and some phrases that go perfectly with the theme of the cards. Most of the supplies I used are from December Days collection by Pinkfresh Studio.
No purchase necessary. The design will be available in the JustNick store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow to get a new cut file for FREE.
Friends Become Our Chosen Family May 6, 2017 11:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends. Happy National Scrapbook Day!
Marcia here today with some scrappy inspiration and a FREE cut file! I love using circle frames around my photos. Floral Ring 2 is a new digital cut file, so I thought I would use it to showcase a photo of my besties.
To add dimension to my layout, I layered some more flowers on top of the Floral Ring. These are from the Stems For Stephanie digital cut file.
I used one more cut file today. I just love this title, Friends Become Our Chosen Family. These wonderful women really are like family for me. They were neighbors but most have moved away, still we get together at least once a month.
Here the cut files I used today...
Thanks so much for stopping by. You can grab the FLORAL RING 2 cut file for free using the code: RINGFREE at checkout until midnight on May 7, 2017 only!
More free cut files are coming later today, so be sure to stop back.
Dream Today - iNSD 2017 May 6, 2017 07:00
Hello hello hello!!! It's Cathy here and I'm so excited to be participating in the celebrations here on the JustNick Blog! We will have several different designers posting through the day and there will be a free cut file to go along with the posts! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page to get your code :)
So for my layout I actually used 3 different cut files! I used the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file, the Feathers 2 cut file, and the Sweater Weather cut file. I decided to finally get in on the dreamcatcher fad, you know, considering that it's almost over! Well let me tell you, this turned out even better than I expected, and although I had to be patient when it came to cutting out the feathers and gluing everything down, the actual design came together super quick! Don't forget to pop over to my YouTube channel to see my process video!
I did a little mixed media behind my dreamcatcher before I glued it down, and I love the addition of the white feathers with my patterned paper feathers. It really brought a level of dreamy whimsy that I had wanted in my layout! If you haven't tried a dreamcatcher yet then I suggest you grab yourself the feather and dreamcatcher cut file and get to work, you won't be disappointed!
You can grab the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file for FREE using the code: DREAM2FREE at checkout now until May 7, 2017 only!
All You Need Is a Free Love Cut File! February 18, 2017 08:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm showing you all my layout using the fantastic Free Love cut file that is available for free until February 19th! Just use the code FREELOVE when you're at the checkout! For my take I decided to get in on the bling and I backed my letters with sequins and some large glitter and an iron-on sequin edging. I always love finding ways to incorporate unusual items and textures into my layouts and this method gave me a fantastic focal piece! I didn't really need to do much else since I already had so much going on but I did like putting everything on the diagonal. Just to make it a little more interesting. I added some punched out hearts for dimension and used some chipboard from Crate Paper Heart Day. Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to get this cut file while you still can!
Happy Day | Free LOVE Cut File February 17, 2017 06:00
Hi there. I'm rounding off the Love themed week today with a couple of cards using this week's Free Love cut file...
I adored the fringe look of this pattern paper so I decided to layer three strips over each other. It's a bit hard to tell in the photo but it has some fun dimension.
Then, I layered 3 medium sized LOVE cuts over each of the three strips and added embellishments...voila!
Get the Free LOVE cut file before it's gone. You have until February 19th. Just enter the code FREELOVE at checkout.

Hey everyone it's Cathy and I'm getting in on the freebie fun! For my layout today I'm using the free Pine Needle Bough cut file available in the shop! If you want to get yourself this cute little file make sure you use the code BOUGHFREE. It's only free for today though, so make sure you pop over to the shop asap. I loved this cut file and when I saw it I immediately thought of it as making a cute accent to add to a wreath, so I grabbed another JustNick cut file that I had on my computer and cut out a wreath. I then cut out my bough and sprayed it with black Heidi Swapp colour shine. I love how bold and fun it looks on my layout and the added pompoms just make it even that much more fun!

12 Days of Giveaways - Day 5 Merry Christmas | Tarrah McLean December 5, 2016 07:00 5 Comments
It's Tarrah McLean back with you today!
Today is the 5th day of the 12 days of Giveaway here on the Just Nick blog - which is so exciting! Nicole has outdone herself with all the designs for this giveaway and you can keep your eyes on the lookout for some beautiful new and FREE cut files coming up in the next days! The design team have created wonderful projects to showcase each design and for inspiration.
I am sharing the layout that I created using the free cut file for today - the Tree Trio 2 cut file.
I kept my layout fairly simple for a change and I like how it turned out! I cut the three trees from 3 different patterned papers and placed them framing my photo slightly.
By adding some layering pieces like stickers and small embellishments I was able to add some extra interest to my page without completely covering up the tree cut files I created. A large chipboard title was begging to be used I I would have had it for like 8 years I think!!) so I finally got to use it!
Today’s design – Tree Trio 2 - is yours for FREE today only!

12 Days of Giveaways - Day 2 Merry & Bright | Laureen Wagener December 2, 2016 07:00 2 Comments
Hi friends -
and happy December 2nd! It's only 22 days until Christmas - at least in Germany, you have to wait one day longer to open presents.
Today is the second day of 12 days of Giveaway - which is so exciting! Nicole has outdone herself with all the designs for this and you can keep your eyes on the lookout for some beautiful new files coming up in the next days! The girls created wonderful layouts to showcase each design.
It's my turn on the blog with the BEAUTIFUL design for day 2 - which you can snap for free today only - read on for the code to use ;)
Can you believe that the layout is the first ever Christmas page I have done?! All the years before I didn't scrapbook and therefore I had this Christmas collection from American Crafts in my stash since 2013, when I attemped - and miserably failed - a December Daily.
For the layout I started by cutting out the festive wreath and then didn't know what to do. I decided to back it with vellum and then I was stuck.
I stared at my blank page for a minimum of 20 minutes, because I didn't like the photos I've chosen at first with the papers I've chosen at first and didn't have any embellishments to use with said paper and photos.
Then I had the idea to just use paper strips from the American Crafts collection behind my wreath and use a circle punch to punch out circles to cover up the edges of the paper strips peeking through. Said and done the wreath was adhered in no time.
For added texture I sewed the wreath about 3 times to my page and then started embellishing around two new pictures, that go perfectly with this collection - I am wearing a sweater combo in the same colors from the collection - so it was meant to be!
I adhered my Thickers in a circle to match up with my wreath, used some gold Heidi shine over the page and called it done.
After I had overcome the first "Ohmygoodnessthiswillneverworkandlookanykindofgood" minutes - I am really loving this page and how it turned out.
Now onto the fun part - go and grab the FESTIVE WREATH cut file for free in the store using the code -
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 2, 2016.
No purchase necessary.
and you are good to go - there are endless possibilities to use this - imagine shaker pockets, or 4 wreaths for 4 pictures of each december weekend and many more!
Be sure to check the blog tomorrow for a new fun design to grab for free.
Happy crafting -

Hello friends! Heather Leopard is here kicking off a few more days of the Pinkfresh / JustNick team-up. I absolutely adore Pinkfresh's flair for design so I was elated to get to work with the Life Noted collection.
I love the pre-printed divided page design on this paper. It took care of my background design work.
And yay for the lovely spring colors. I decided to mix the spring-like patterns with the Delicate Florals cut file, backing with fun designs from the collection.
I hope you are enjoying this team-up as much as we are. Make sure to head over to the Pinkfresh blog to see how her creative team integrated JustNick's files into their creative process.
14 Days of Holidays - Day 6! December 8, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Welcome to Day 6 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today to show your how I've used the snowflake background design, to create not one but two festive holiday cards.
I sized the file to about 6.5" by 7.5". Doing so allowed me to cut a piece that was big enough to use for both of my card designs, with only one pass of the diecutting machine.
For this first card, I layered a portion of the background onto a piece of patterned paper that was trimmed to fit my card front. I trimmed off the excess portion of the diecut design and set it aside for my next card.
I used Versamark ink and glitter embossing powder to add a whole lot of sparkle to my diecut design. Not only does it allow the snowflakes to stand out against the patterned background, but it's just plain pretty! Adorning the centers of several of the snowflakes with gems and rhinestones is a fun finishing touch.
As noted, my next card design utilizes the leftovers from the first card - a great way to stretch your diecuts and save on time! I simply trimmed out two of the remaining snowflake designs, layered them onto one another, and stitched on a pretty coordinated button.
This dimensional, layered snowflake makes for a perfect centerpiece to the design.
Today’s design – Snowflake Background - is yours for FREE today only!
Just enter code: SNOWFREE at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 8, 2015.
No purchase necessary.
Design will be available in the JustNick store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Meet our Guest Designer Sarah Moore + a freebie! October 16, 2015 07:00 1 Comment
It's that time of the month - where we ask a talented designer to join us on the blog using our cut files!
Help me welcome Sarah Moore this month to JustNick!
Hi my name is Sarah Moore. I'm a crazy busy mama to 4 boys ages 9, 6, 5 and 2 and I've been married to my super supportive husband for 11 years! I am a (very part time hairdresser), but mostly a Stay At Home (Hockey) Mom and a Beachbody Coach! I pretty much run hair straight back all day, but I love it! I've been scrapbooking now for 11 years. I started just after I got married, so I could make a wedding album (shhhhh!! don't tell anyone that I still haven't finished that album!! HA!) I LOVE playing with my Cameo and finding different ways to stretch your cut files and use them in unique ways! I also love getting messy and inky with mixed media! I'm sad to say that my scrapbooking has taken a back seat to my busy life lately, but I was super happy to get a chance to be a Guest Designer for Just Nick and stretch my creative muscles!
We let Sarah grab some cut files from the store to create a project and this is what she created!
Sarah says this about her project:
Growing Up October 15, 2015 07:00
Hey, there! Jennie McGarvey here with a brand new page featuring the Going in Circles cut file. I pretty much love this one. It's going to be super versatile and easy to use over and over again. Did you know it's the FREE download for October? Yep, you read that right it's FREE, starting Friday!
I wanted to use this cool file in a different sort of way. Circles are a regular part of my pages, since they lend themselves to sports pages pretty easily. So I wondered how I could use this cool file as an accent without competing with the rest of the page. Then, I thought what if I used it so it looked like it was peeking out from behind the page?
I know. It's a little different. But I love that the file really holds up the page -- it's a super cute part of the page and it really compliments the overall design without competing with it.
Going In Circles
#Funtimes Layout October 13, 2015 07:00
Good morning, Just Nick friends! It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today. Did you happen to catch a peek of the Going in Circles cut file that was featured on Leanne's page yesterday? Isn't it fun?! Not only is this new design awesome, but it's also the FREE download for October. Yep, you read that right it's FREE, starting Friday!
All week long the design team will be sharing projects with you, featuring this versatile cut file. I couldn't wait to use this design, accompanied by a favorite photo of my daughter from over the summer. One quick look at the page and you can easily see why this design coordinated so perfectly with the snap of my little girl in a polka dotted inner tube!
I sized the file down, and cut it out of the same white cardstock that I used for the base of my page.
Those open circles were just begging to be filled with snippets of fun and colorful papers, don't you think?! A few strategically placed sequins and embellishments find a nice home among the circles, too!
I knew I'd need a bold font for my title, to prevent it from being overshadowed by the circle design on the top half of my page. I turned to the Hashtags 1 cut file, knowing that the strong type and fun sentiments would be a great match. I selected '#funtimes' - cutting it once from the same textured white cardstock and again from a subtle blue grid patterned paper. Using the blue diecut title as a shadow, creates interest and separation from the white background, while still maintaining cohesion.
I'm certain by the end of this week, your brain will be 'going in circles' over all of the ideas you will have accumulated for using this freebie cut file!
Come back tomorrow for another designer's interpretation of the file. See you then!
Going in Circles
Guest Designer Audrey Yeager + a freebie! July 17, 2015 07:00 16 Comments
We welcome Audrey Yeager to the blog today as our Guest Designer for July!
We knew we had to ask Audrey to GDT for us when we saw her great projects at My Scraps and More!
I am a thirty something stay-at-home mom to my kindergartener and pre-schooler. I started scrapbooking around 2005, although I have been “crafty” my entire life, dabbling in different crafts here and there. In 2007 I discovered the online world of scrapbooking, which totally changed the way I scrapbook. Since then, I’ve been on several teams for kit clubs, manufacturers, and challenge blogs. In January of 2014, I took over ownership of an online retail scrapbook store called My Scraps & More. I have an entire store in my basement, and it allows me the best of both worlds to work part time from home in the store and spend time with my kids, too! (Not to mention I get to scrap with ALL THE THINGS!)
I love to scrap about our everyday moments and try to record all those little things that are said and done. I’m also so glad that we live in a place like upstate NY where we experience every season because I love being able to change up my products and inspiration from one season to the next!
I love how scrapbooking can remove me from anything else I may have on my mind, and just take me to a place where all I think about are colors, patterns, and the memories behind this photo. I also love the social part of it, too, in going to crops and retreats, and the online support and camaraderie!
In addition to scrapbooking, I love to quilt and sew, garden, play volleyball, and watch movies and sci-fi TV series!
We asked Audrey to create a few projects using our cut files and look at what she sent us!
I used the Brushstrokes cut file from the store and cut different "strokes" from different colored papers. I layered the stoke cuts in a vertical line behind my photo. I cut the Simple Scalloped Strips file from white cardstock and added small bits to the top and bottom of my photo as a little border.
We also asked Audrey what type of file she would like to use and she asked for a lake inspired cut file! This is what we sent her:
Check out what Audrey did with this file:
I used the waves from the freebie file and cut them in different sizes. I cut them from apiece of paper that had an ombre pattern to it so that the bigger waves were on darker paper, and the smaller waves were on lighter paper. For the title, I cut the words "fishing" and "lake" from white paper and inked it with navy ink to add a bit more contrast.
Thanks for sharing your great projects with us Audrey!

If you like the Lake Life Freebie - you can download it in the store for a limited time!
Just add the item to your cart and use the code: lakelife at checkout until midnight July 31, 2015 to get this file for free!
