Happy Halloween everyone! Oh, how i miss the day my kids would dress up for the day, all the preparations, the make up and all the candy afterwards (well, there is still candy!!); now that theya are teenagers all I am left with are sweet memories of Halloween's past. So, i pulled a few pictures from a couple years ago to create this page using some of the new JustNick Studio cut files.
There are so many cut files to chose from, and it was so hard to pick one, that i decided to mix four cut files in one page.
I combined one of the Basic Heart cut file images with the Spiderweb 2 background and Web cut files to create the cut out for this page. I chose to cut it from black cardstock, so that it would stand out from the mixed media background (created with Jane Davenports Mermaid Markers).
Before setting the cut out on the page, a bit of white acrylic paint was rubbed on the cardstock, this gives the cut out that worn/antique look you see in the layout.
The pictures were sized so that they fit in between the two spiderwebs inside the heart, and then i used stickers and embellishments from a few Halloween collections (Simple Vintage Halloween from Simple Stories, Pink Paislee's Spellcast and Pebbles' Midnight Haunting) to add some small details aroun the page.
For the title of this page, I chose the new Happy Halloween cut file to create the "SPOOKTACULAR" part of the title. It was cut from black cardstock and then treated to a white acrylic paint wash.
Now it is time to go and set all the candy in bowls for us to share (well a bit of it, at least!). Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio store to check all the cut files used here and all other beautiful designs. You can always contact me if you have questions on how this all came together!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!
Pumpkin Carving | Marcia Dehn-Nix October 22, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today with some Halloween inspiration for you. Do you have your pumpkins ready to carve? My son Trenton takes pumpkin carving very seriously. Last year I helped him create a stencil of the clown from the movie It using my Silhouette Cameo. It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but above the clown are the words You'll Float Too. This pumpkin was so popular last Halloween my Trick or Treaters (and their parents) were taking photos of it. I can't wait to see what he is planning to carve this year. I used the new Web digital cut file to add some creepiness to a corner. I love that big black spider hanging down.
For my title, I used my favorite Outline Alphas and backed the letters with different pattern papers.
Here is a close up of that clown all lit up ... Be sure to check out the eyes. Awesome, Right?
Here are the digital cut files I used today...
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week!!
Hey Spidey! - Cathy Martin October 27, 2017 06:00
Hey everyone! It's almost Halloween! I love this holiday, and I love the versatility of making layouts for it, because you don't just have to go with traditional colors and icons. For instance in the layout I created using the Hey Spidey cut file, I went with blues, reds, black and lots of other colors to create a Spiderman themed layout. I had a 12 x 12 paper that had various comic book panels and I used it to back some of the cut file, as well as a few other papers from my stash. I didn't over-embellish my layout either, since it really didn't need it, there is already so much going on that a minimal approach worked well. You could, in fact, use any cut file to create a Halloween themed layout! Thank you so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!
Scary Cute Halloween Cards | Jen McMurtrey October 25, 2017 07:00
This week on the JustNick blog the design team is featuring Halloween projects using the many adorable files available in the shop.
Rather than sticking with my usual layout, I decided to branch out of my comfort zone a bit and create a few cards instead.
First up is the Trick or Treat card - I began with a white card and layered black AC card stock with patterned paper from Fairytale Club's This is Halloween collection (used for all of the cards). For the sentiment, I used AC glitter card stock with the 31 cut file and offset it with patterned paper. To give it dimension, I adhered it to the card with foam squares. To finish the card, I added a candy die cut (The Fairytale Club) and purple glitter enamel dots from Doodlebug.
I began with black card stock for the base and added a piece of patterned paper cut slightly smaller. The spider web was sized down to fit the card and then placed in the lower left corner of the card. The Boo sentiment was next and adhered with foam squares for dimension. For the spider, I added hand stitching to make it appear as if it is coming down from the top of the card. I used a Spectrum Noir glitter pen to give it a bit of shine and attached it with foam. To complete the card, I added the purple heart die cut and more of the Doodlebug enamel dot.
The third and last card is my favorite. It began with a white card, which has black card stock and patterned paper adhered to the front. I machine stitched a strip of patterned paper down the right side of the card and focused all of my embellishments here.
The web was leftover from the Boo card and fit perfectly onto the strip of patterned paper. I adhered the 31 sentiment over the web and attached the Boo die cut along the bottom. The spider was cut from polka dot paper and adhered with a foam square. I finished it all with more of the glitter enamel dots from Doodlebug.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to create today!
Too Cute To Spook | Marcia Dehn-Nix October 24, 2017 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia back today to share an adorable Halloween layout with you. Since my dog likes to greet all the Trick or Treaters, I like to dress him up in costume too. The kids love it. Even kids who may be afraid of dogs are not so scared of him when he looks so funny. Seriously, there is nothing scary about my layout! Take a look.
I turned my title into a layered die cut by creating a background shadow using the offset tool in Silhouette Studio. I love how it pops against the yellow ink on my background. The googly eyes add a nice touch of whimsy. You can create a whole new look, just by adding a shadow layer.
Here are the digital cut files I used today ...

Free Spirit | Jaclyn Rench October 23, 2017 07:00
Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here today to kick off Halloween week on the blog! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I was eager to dig through my library of spooky cut designs. As you will soon see, I had a hard time narrowing down my choices and ended up uses elements from four different cut files to create my bewitching page.
Using a witch hat was a no brainer, as I dug into my library of Just Nick files. I chose the one from Spooky Stuff because I loved the band and buckle that accompanied it, and the opportunity it allowed for me to add a splash of color. This crooked hat is a fun added accent to my page title.
Speaking of the title, doesn't that scripty font look spectacular when cut from glitter cardstock? The Free Spirit text was likely intended for other purposes, but I think it's a fun play on words when paired with my photos.
I also pulled in the number '31' from the 31 cut design, and adhered it atop of a black circular label. This little vignette of designs creates a fun focal point on my page.
I simply couldn't stop there, knowing a spider web would make a fun addition to the overall design. Just Nick has several web designs to choose from, but I quickly settle on the Hey Spidey Background because I loved the quirky feel of it. I cut the design from vellum to layer in the upper right corner of my page and secured it with several lines of machine stitching.
I snuck one final spooky element from Spooky Stuff onto my page. I sized down a couple of the bats and placed them just beyond the folded edge of my patterned paper background. Adhering the bats only in the middle and allowing their wings to lift, reinforces the idea that they are indeed flying off the page.
We hope you'll stick around the blog all week long for lots more Halloween inspiration from the design team!

Happy Halloween Eeeeek! November 02, 2016 07:00
Hello Just Nick fans! It's Lee-Anne here today bringing you a Halloween layout of these two cuties.
The spider web was added to the background to give the layout some more interest and texture and of course to make it more spooky.
For the three pumpkins on the bottom of my layout, I went ahead and sized them in Silhouette Studio in three different sizes and added the eyes, noses, and mouths to each before cutting them out with my Silhouette Cameo on orange patterned paper. To make them pop even more, I backed each pumpkin with black cardstock.
I hope you enjoyed my layout. Be sure and check all the amazing designs in the Just Nick shop. Thanks for stopping by!
Cut Files Used On Layout
She's A Hoot! October 29, 2016 07:00
Hey everybody, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout! This time I'm focusing on Halloween, and I don't know about any of you, but sometimes traditional Halloween icons and colours don't really match what I'm doing. For my daughter's second Halloween she was a cute pink owl. When it came time to scrap the picture I knew I wanted to go in a different direction, but that doesn't mean I can't use an awesome cut file to emphasize my theme! I picked the lovely feather background and cut it from white cardstock. I backed my cutfile with some Pink Paislee Fancy Free paper and then backed the entire thing on some polka dot paper. Since I had such a busy background I decided to keep my layering and embellishing to a minimum. I used a white doily behind the pictures to add a little bit of visual interest and I splatters some bright pink colour shine to top it off! I love the simple sweetness of this layout, the femininity and softness of it compliments the photos perfectly, and the feather background creates such an interesting look. So remember, when you're scrapping your Halloween photos don't just stop at the Halloween cutfiles, there are lots that you can easily work into whatever theme you are going with!
Trick or Treat | Tarrah McLean October 24, 2016 07:00
Hi Just Nick fans!
It's Tarrah joining you and today I am sharing my very first Halloween themed layout for this year!
Obviously I had to use photos from last years Halloween, we don't actually really celebrate Halloween in Australia but my son's love dressing up and joining in on the Trick or Treat fun! Luckily because it is getting popular over here now, the shops are starting to carry costumes and things to decorate your home with!
I just HAD to use this amazing Spider Web background when I saw that Nicole had designed it, I was busting to create a layout using it!
I used lots of bits and pieces of Halloween themed craft things that I have had for some time now...there is a bit of Crate Paper After Dark and some pieces from a really old brand called Little Yellow Bicycle!
I used the Trick or Treat from the 31 cut file set for my title and I love how it turned out cut on orange cardstock!
Last Halloween I had a zombie and a skeleton! How cute are they?!! I also added some Halloween wood veneer bits that I have had for a few years!
I love how the chipboard spider fits in the corner of the letter 'R'....it was the perfect spot for him to go!
Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! I hope I have inspired you to get your Halloween crafting started!
Happy creating and Happy Halloween!
Too Cute to Spook October 21, 2015 07:00
Using lots of cut files on a layout doesn't have to be scary or complicated and we hope you are seeing that this week! And today I am going to share a not so scary Halloween layout that uses four different files from the Just Nick Store.
I started off using one of my favorite files the Brick Circle Background. In this case I used it as a way to pull in some extra color and texture to my background. That extra orange really helps my pictures pop off the page!
The Handcut Letters 2 are so unique and kind of fit with my "tiger" title because of the stripe! The bats come from the brand new Spooky Stuff file. I folded their wings up to give them some added dimension.
The Doodle Frames were perfect for mounting over my pictures and adding another pop of color. He certainly is Too Cute to Spook and I think he will be just that again this year! Have fun experimenting with multiple cut files - you never know how great they can look until you give it a try!
