Dream Today - iNSD 2017 May 06, 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.


12 Days of Giveaways - Pine Needle Bough December 11, 2016 00:00 3 Comments

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 05, 2016 07:00 5 Comments

Hi everyone!

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!

Just enter code: TRIO2FREE at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 5th, 2016.
No purchase necessary.
Design will be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Happy cutting and creating!


12 Days of Giveaways - Day 2 Merry & Bright | Laureen Wagener December 02, 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 -

WREATHFREE

 

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 -

xx Laureen

14 Days of Holidays - Day 6! December 08, 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.


Summer #Funtimes! October 14, 2015 07:00

Good Morning!  Guiseppa here and I hope you have been enjoying the design team's projects using the free cut file, Going in Circles, available Friday October 16th!  I know I had so much fun using this cut file!

I love this file because of all of the fun things I can add to it.  I can place pictures and embellishments in the circles and make customize my project.  This file will work for any layout you are creating!

Have a look at what I did!

JustNick also has some fun words you can use to created titles.  I chose the Summer Words and Hashtags 1 cut files to create my title.

As you can see I used the empty circles as well as the the ones that weren't to add pictures, embellishments and to personalize my layout.

So, what do you think you will do with this fun cut file?  It's your...available on Friday!  Yay...who doesn't love FREE!  Make sure you stop by the JustNick Store to see all of the fun cut files!  Thanks for stopping in and happy cutting with JustNick cut files!

 


#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!

Meet our August Guest Designer - Rory Villancourt August 14, 2015 07:00 2 Comments

I came across our August Guest Designer's work on YouTube and fell in love! Please welcome our August Guest Designer - Rory Villancourt
Hello I am Rory a Family first, scrapbook addicted, dog loving, bike pedaling, photo clicking, nature lovin', simple things enjoying, Canadian Girl.
We gave Rory some bucks to spend in our store and make a few projects - check out this first project that she created!
Here is what Rory had to say about her page:
​​​I had all kinds of fun using the Sunny Days cut files for this 8.5 by 11 layout.  The cut shapes layer so nicely together.  I outlined all the files with white cardstock so they would stand out and clustered them around the page.  A few embellishments was all it took to finish it off.  This layout is the first selfie of my daughter and I in her new place.
 
Rory decided to use the Best Day Ever cut file to create this wonderful page!
Here is what she had to say about this page:
My second layout is all about the title.  It really was the Best Day Ever!  I took this photo just minutes after my daughter got the keys to her new home.  That's why I chose this cut file.  It's big and bold on the page.  I also love the look of a cursive font mixed with a blocky one.  I outlined the title cut file with white cardstock so I could pop it up on the page.  I like the shadows and that way could keep the dimension of the cut.  I love the skinny font of the words best and ever.
I had some Serious fun Guest Designing and making  layouts with these Just Nick cut files 
Thanks Rory! We enjoyed having you!!! Rory also created a YouTube process video for this page... check it out on here You Tube channel here - https://youtu.be/Tz3FqjXMRo4
