Matariki |In the Deep End Background | Michelle Whorwood July 11, 2017 07:00 1 Comment
Hi, Michelle Whorwood here! I am super excited to be back on board with the Just Nick Design Team for a second term. The Just Nick cut files are just my favourite cut files to work with and today I have another layout featuring two more cut files from store.
I really enjoy creating layouts with circle cut files as they are super fun to create and I enjoy embellishing in and around the circle designs. Using a cut file such as the new cut file in store in the In The Deep End Background makes creating easy as you have a design to work with already. When I saw this in store I couldn't want to use it! I decided to cut it out on some yellow cardstock for a change from white and then I backed several of the circles with patterned papers. I then added my photos of my youngest daughter on a recent school trip to celebrate Matariki here in New Zealand.
I kept round elements by adding in some more circle embellishments within the circles of the cut file themselves and then also added some embellishments on and around my title and photos.
I cut my title out of patterned paper using the Handcut Letters cut file which is a fun alpha set which I have outlined in black pen on my layout to highlight it more on my busy page. I then added a couple of hearts with foam dots for more fun and interest.
I finished off my layout with some hand cut scalloped borders to frame the top and bottom of my page and some splatters of paint and mist. I hope you have enjoyed my fun circle style layout. Do you enjoy creating with circles as much as I do?
Meet our May Guest Designer + freebie time! May 19, 2017 07:00 2 Comments
Good morning! It's that time of the month again, to welcome a new Guest Designer to our blog and show off their fabulous creations!
Today, we welcome Elsie Robinson!
Hey everyone, I’m Elsie and I’m so happy to be a Guest Designer for JustNick this month. I’m 23 and live in Brighton, England and I’m a total paper addict! I’m currently on the Pink Paislee and Citrus Twist kits Design Teams and you can also come say hi on the links below!
Now, I don’t actually own a die-cutting machine – haha! So you’re probably thinking ‘what business does she have with being a Guest Designer for a cut file store?!’ Well… I actually use cut files on my layouts by using some good old-fashioned pencils, scissors and tracing paper!
To use the cut files I print them out with my regular home printer and use the tracing paper and pencil to copy the design and transfer it onto whichever patterned papers I’m using. It’s obviously a process that takes a little more time, but it does combat my Silhouette FOMO as I still get to use some of the gorgeous cut file designs!
We gave Elsie free reign on the store to select whatever designs she wanted to use for her projects, and check out what she created:
Cut file used:
I've recently loved making cute little characters for my pages, so when I saw these adorable little monsters, I knew I had to make a page documenting a photo of my brothers and I being silly when we were younger. I especially love the way the blue monster turned out as he looks so cute and goofy with his buckteeth! The Handcut Letters cut file, was a perfect match for this layout as the letters are so cartoony, and I know will be using them for many more layouts in the future!
Amazing right? and all by hand people?! Check out this next project:
I actually made another hot air balloon layout about a year ago and it’s still one of my favourite layouts, so I thought it was about time to make another one!
Cut files used:
I printed the balloons in three different sizes and traced the lines of the cut file to add some stitching details. It’s hard to cut out really intricate shapes without a cutting machine, but I find that stitching is a great way to add the detail back in. I also followed the same steps with the Delicate Florals cut file, I love the touch of whimsy those cute florals added to the page!
Pretty amazing, I think! Now, we would love to offer you the Up in the Air cut file for FREE until midnight CST May 31, 2017! Just enter the code: AIRFREE at checkout... no purchase necessary.
Thank you SO much to Elsie for being our GDT this month! Check out more of her work here:
Making memories with you | Laureen Wagener May 4, 2017 07:00
Hi friends -
today I have a fun layout to share using one of my favorite scrapbook collections and a super fun cut file!
One of my favorite collections still is the Fancy Free collection from Paige Evans and Pink Paislee that came out last year!
Now ever since then Paige's collections include at least one paper that consists of a bunch of squares and different patterns.
For my layout today I decided to use that paper and create a huge title with it!
Paige always creates super cute layouts using one of the papers and forming a title - by cutting a letter out of each square. Missy Whidden also shared a lovely page recently, so I had to create a layout like that.
I wanted to use a cut file I have never used from Just Nick, so I cut my title using the Handcut letters 2 cut file. Such a fun and beautiful font!
Searching pinterest for quotes is always a great idea - that's how I found my title quote
Making memories with you is my favorite thing to do
Now, not all the words would fit onto my page, so I used some white foam letter thickers for a few words.
Because the page was filled with my title I only used a few wood veneers and layered one behind each of my three photos.
Now go and grab your favorite Alphabet cut file from Just Nick and create a bold, vibrant title!

Hello JustNick friends!
Marcia here today. I am so happy to be back designing for JustNick Studios! I love the awesome digital cut files Nicole Nowosad designs. Today, I created a Spring layout for you using some Studio Calico Goldy papers. Check it out ...
I really wanted to use this Heart Explosion cut file on a layout. With Easter coming, I chose to scrap this photo of my daughter's pet rabbit and one of our cats. This rabbit was litter boxed trained, so he was allowed to run when we were home. These two loved to cuddle.
I used gold lame crepe paper to create that fringed heart inside the cut out heart.
I went with a BIG title, using the Handcut Letters cut file. Inking the edges of the letters with some matching ink helps them to pop from the white background.
Here are the cut files I used ...
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there everyone!
It's Tarrah McLean here with you and I am so excited to be here! Today I am sharing my first layout using the amazing Just Nick cut files! I don't know about you but I am playing catch up a little bit with my crafting! Yes I am still scrapbooking Christmas!
I chose to use the Triangle Geo Lace background to carry on the triangle shape design already printed on the patterned paper...I used the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes collection to create this layout..
I created the word 'Nice' by using the Handcut Letters cut file...I deleted the letters I didn't need, moved the letters together to spell 'Nice' so they overlapped a little and then welded them together in Silhouette Studio.
Thank you so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!
As Cute As A Button November 24, 2015 07:00
Hi everyone! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing another layout for Just Nick Digital Cut Files using the Bitty Buttons Cut File, the Handcut Letters Cut File and the word "cherish" from the Gratitude Cut File. I thought it was perfect for the title of the layout because this little guy is definitely as cute as a button. My daughter saw this kid when it was only 20 minutes old. He was named Rudy.
For the title of my page, I used the Handcut Letters and created the words "As Cute As A Button". I then duplicated the title and filled the entire page and then cut it out on white card stock with my Silhouette Cameo. To make the bottom line of words stand out more, I took a water brush and my distress ink and painted around each letter. When the paint was dry, I used a brown piece of paper and backed the letters so that they would stand out more and then went ahead and cut out paper buttons and the word "cherish". Finally I matted my photo.
I hope you are inspired to use the cut files in different ways such as a title on the background paper.
Be sure and check out all the cut file designs in the Just Nick Shop. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

One Year Later October 20, 2015 07:00
This week we are sharing projects using FOUR cut files! I loved this challenge. I loved going through all the beautiful designs when choosing what would work best for my layout. I also kept in mind that a cut file doesn't have to remain in it's original state. :) You'll see what I mean in a minute. But, first, let me share with you my page:
If you have followed me at all here, it should be no surprise that background cut files are my favorite. I absolutely love using them to showcase lots of color and pattern. It really does help with adding other embellishments because there isn't much else that needs to be done!
I also used a scallop border cut file but, I trimmed it down to fit over and ground the clipboard for my journaling.
I used two different texts. Well, one is text and the other is an alpha set cut file. LOVE the alpha! So fun and unique.
Design wise, I tried something with layering my title over the text 'captured'. It worked! I really like how it turned out and you can still read the words but, not be overwhelmed.
I say, the more cut files the better! Layer them on! Trim and re-purpose! Have fun! Now, go grab some cut files and challenge yourself to using 4! Or 5... or 6...
