Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I am sharing with you my new 12x12 layout featuring one of  the summery Just Nick Studio's cut files.

Fun in the Sun.

I had this idea from the start so I cut the Fun in the Sun cut file twice from white cardstock and then trimmed the centre sun from the second one, removing the inner words.

After poking a hole in line with each of the 24 points I used 4 different coloured embroidery threads to sew around the sun shape in a repeating pattern at every 10, 8, 6 & 4 holes. Then using foam pads I added it back over the first cut file.

I added a stencilled sunburst behind the cut file and then cut the inner letters from patterned paper and used foam pads to raise them up.

I added 2 photos from a family holiday in Tenerife a few years ago which I matted on teal cardstock before tucking under the cut file.

The paper range I used was Simple Stories Sunkissed collection which was perfect for this summer themed layout.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out this Fun in the Sun cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. Have you seen the new Fun In The Sun title in the on-line store? I wanted to combine it with the South Pacific Floral digital cut file, but not in the usual way. I busted out my Silhouette sketch pens and instead of cutting out the design, I sketched it instead. Then I dug out my watercolors and got busy adding some color to the sketched design. This gave me a gorgeous unique background that I could use to scrap some Waikiki Beach photos. Take a look at how my layout turned out...

I am by no means good when it comes to watercolors, but it's fun to play with them sometimes and I am happy with the results. I applied a layer of gesso over the top of the sketched design. This helps to blend the colors later. It muted the lines a little, but I like that it's soft. Here is a closer look...

I absolutely love the new Fun In The Sun title. I backed the middle with a blue watercolor pattern paper. I felt I needed to bring in a little more blue besides the blue in my photos.

I backed the alphas with a script pattern paper in white. I wanted to keep my layout bright and airy.

Here are the digital cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will try using a sketch pen in your die cutting machine. It's really easy to do.

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a Summer/sunny layout.   Summer is slowly coming to an end, so why not bottle those happy, fun memories of the season in a bright and colorful page using a few of JustNick Studio cut files.


To start this page, i used some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to create the ink/painted look on the background.  


The background cut out was created by welding a few of the Sunburst Background 2 a few times together.  The paper that backs the center of each sun image comes from Fancy Pants' Poolside collection, and brings that sunny feeling to the page.




To create the title of this page, I pulled the Fun in the SUn cut file, and cut it from white cardstock.   To continue the Summer feel of the page, I used Fancy Pants  Hello Sunshine collection to back the letters iin the title.   The colors and patterns in the title balance the sunburst background.




Having a large and colorful title takes care of a lot of the embellishing on the page, so a few die cuts, sticker and stamped sentiments complete this page.



Love how this page just screams Summer Fun! Love the combination of cut files and fun summer patterrns.


Remember to stop by JustNick Studio to check for these and many new cut files available.   There is so much inspiration waiting for you!  As always, I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
