Isn't it fun to play with the cut files and after finishing one project, it inspires you with another idea of using the same or similar cut files. This Traveler's Notebook spread is a spin off of using the same Graphic Frames I used on my first post this month here, but instead of the Simple Scallop Strips, I used the Borders 1 cut file.

 

Combining the Borders 1 cut file with a beautiful colorful pattern paper created repetition, texture, and a quick way to fill your Travelers Notebook.  I cut two of the Borders 1 styles to spread across my page but instead of going horizontal, I went vertical.

I did a single machine stitching the length of each one, this helped to fold up the sides to create dimension and a great way to add or in this case tuck embellishments under them.  I added adhesive just to the center of each border to adhere.

I continued the borders to the right side doing the same technique, but also tucked and adhered a Graphic Frame cut from the same pattern paper partially under them.  For this right page, I also added another complementary pattern paper under a smaller piece of white cardstock for my background, adding a straight stitch to each side of my background.  All of this creates some nice texture, color, and repetition to the stitching I already have.

Before I adhered everything in place, I sent this through my typewriter to add journaling.  Then I tucked more embellishments under my borders, added some stamping and embellishments to finish.

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Happy creating!


Hello Imperfectly Perfect | Patricia Roebuck July 8, 2019 07:00

Hello Everyone!  I am so excited to be joining the JustNick team with all the amazing designers, and especially, Nicole!  Nicole and I have met a few times at CHA and Creativation and have even been on different design teams together.  I'm also excited because I know just how talented Nicole is and have seen her shop grow so much.  She has an amazing eye for style and detail.

With today's post, I'll introduce myself a little more and share a page I created.  I still create 12x12 and 8.5x11 layouts occasionally, but my favorite way to document these days is in a Traveler's Notebook or a 6x8 format.  I have been designing for manufacturers and kit clubs since 2012.  After changes to a direct-sales company I was exclusively working with part-time from 2016 to 2018, I am back to designing more as a hobby again for myself and teams again.  

For my about me page, I picked Graphic Frames, Infinity Hearts Frames, Simple Scallop Strips, and Basic Hearts.

After cutting the frames in white cardstock, I picked three to layer over my pattern paper background.  Pulling from the design of the hearts from the Infinity Hearts Frames, I continued that theme by cutting Basic hearts to layer over and under my frames.

I used small alpha stickers from Citrus Twist using a saying I heard from our pastor.  I will never be perfect, always striving to improve, to change, to grow.  It's a saying that motivates you to keep going.  I layered embellishments over the clusters of the hearts with a larger embellishment by the photo.

I cut out two of the images from the Simple Scallop Strips, one in pattern paper and the other in white cardstock to layer.  I trimmed them down, stapled them, and foam adhered them to my page.  I used another trimmed down strip to add to my top card on the right side of my page along with stamping, which is 'perfect' for my imperfection ;)

For the bottom card, I did some journaling about myself.  These are random current things about myself.  I used an alcohol marker to highlight a few words to add more color to the card and added lots of enamel shapes as bullets, as well as sprinkling them throughout the entire spread for more texture and color.

Thank you so much Nicole for having me, and thank you to everyone for stopping by!


STAY WILD | Nathalie DeSousa October 10, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there!

Nathalie back with you today with a new project using some of the Just Nick Studio cut files.   I love all things Fall, and as soon as Cat Martin (one of our past designers) released her new digital collection, Norwegian Wood.   The idea of building a forest scene/diorama came to my mind.

To create the frames that are in the background and around the page, i  used the Floral Corner and Graphic Frames cut files.

 

 

 

First i copy and welded a few of the Flower Corner cut file so that they form a square of flowers on the mat.  

 

 

Then i attached one of the Graphic Frames to the flower square and sent it to cut from white cardstock.   I cut two frames, one to fit the entire page, and a smaller one at about 2 inches shorter.

 

 

Before gluing pieces to the page, the smaller frame was use as a mask to add a bit of color (so that it match the tones in the collection)to the center of the page - I used VIcki Boutin Crayons for this-.  

 

 

Each frame was backed with colored vellum (also created with VIcki Boutin Crayons) and then a bit of foam adhesive was used to create the dimension on the page.   Since the background and frames are doing a lots of the work, just a few decorations from the collection were needed to complete this page.

 

Love how this turned out.   Sometimes all  it takes is a few cut files to translate your ideas into the perfect layout.  Remember to stop by JustNick Studio to check the cut files used in this project, and all the new designs being added weekly.

You can always contact me if you have questions on how this was put together.

Hello, again! Aurelie here today to let you in on what I've been up to lately with some of the JustNick cut files by the oh, so talented Nicole Nowosad. This time around, I combined parts of two files onto one layout - Graphic Frames and WORD 2. I love, love, L-O-V-E it when there are multiple images in one cut file! The possibilities are endless!! Here's what I came up with:

As you can see, I picked one image from each cut file and incorporated them onto my layout. With the layering I had under my photo, I just wanted something to make my pic pop off the page a bit more. That frame was just the thing! And the title - oh, SO perfect for that sweet pic of my husband with our daugther, not quite even a day after she was born. Loved the title so much that I cut it twice and created a shadow-like effect with it. Love how it turned out.

And there you have it! Now, it's your turn! Head on over to the JustNick store and get scrappin' with some multi-image files. You'll love how all of them work together!

Happy scrapping!
