Hi Everyone.

I'm back today with another page featuring Heart Circle Background file.

I decided to use this adorable collection from my favorite Brazilian paper brand, Juju Scrapbook, to create a cute and fun layout.



After cutting the file on a white paper cardstock, I backed the background with patter papers. Then, added cute dogs and cats since my daughter loves animals.

Finishing the page with white gesso and adding Nuvo drops. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello friends! Today I have a TN spread to share using one of the many new heart files that can be found in the store this month. It was hard to narrow down which file to use for this spread, but I ended up choosing the Doodle Floral Heart Outline cut file. 

To start, I flipped the orientation of the heart because my photo needed to be on the right hand side. I prefer my subjects to be looking into the spread as opposed to looking off the page. 

After I cut the file out, I backed several of the flowers with various scraps of patterned paper. I then backed the entire cut file before adhering it down onto my pages. 

The pops of black provide a nice contrast against the bright colors. To frame the pages I tore a scrap of patterned paper and then placed it on the top and bottom. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. Be sure and check out the Just Nick store to see all of the new cut files that have been added this month. I hope that this provides a bit of inspiration for your next project. Happy crafting!

Happy Valentine's Day JustNick Studio friends!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout all about love.   My husband and I have been married for 20yrs which means this will be our 20th Valentine's day!  So, i wanted to document last year picture using some of the new cut files available at the  JustNIck Studio shop!



Who says Valentine's has to be all about red and pink?  Well, my choice was to bring a combination of soft and bold colors along with flowers and dynamic design.




To build my cut hear cut out, i used the outline heart from the FLORAL HEART cut file ( i separated the paths, so that i can only use the outside edge of the heart) and added an inside off set to create the small heart frame.  I backed the heart with vellum and a paper from the Just A Little Lovely collection from Pinkfresh Stiudio.



I used papers from the new My Favorite Story (Pinkfresh Studio) to create the background for this page.  I set the heart on the background  so that it sits on a bit of an offset at the center of the page.




I cut two of the bottom floral from the DIVIDED FLORAL Cut file and laid them along the right side of the heart.  This created a soft cascade of white floral images along the bold side of the background.




I kept the left side of the heart pretty simple.  This time i use  BUTTERFLY cut file to create the one that sits next to the title.  I cut it from white cardstock, and then use vellum to cut a simple silhouette of the same butterfly so i can layered them together.



I added just a few more embellishments from the collection and then a few lines of journal complete my page.  I LOVE how this turned out, simple and bold just like my hunny and I.


Remember to stop by the JUSTNICK Studio blog to check all the cut files used in this page,




Floral Heart - Nicole Nowosad February 8, 2020 07:00

Love is in the air! We have so many pretty valentine cut files available in the shop, but I wanted to use this delicate and pretty cut file for my page.

I love a good background cut file. It is THE easiest way to create a unique design for your project and depending on what you cut it from and what you do with it, can totally change what your page will look like each time.

I chose to cut this design from kraft cardstock and then fill it with pretty patterned papers by Simple Stories. I decided to add Distress Oxide inks to the cardstock background where the colors changed throughout my design.

I love the soft feeling that the ink behind the cut file creates on the page. I added some drops of ink along with a few gems throughout the open cut file design.

I wrapped some twine in and out o the cut file design and then popped the entire design from the page with foam adhesive.

I love how soft and pretty this cut file is, and I hope you do too!

You Make My Heart Smile - Cathy Martin February 25, 2018 07:00

Hey all, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout to share with you!  This time I decided to use a cut file as a mask and use some spray mist to spray over it.  This isn't really a new or different technique, but it's one that I've used several times before and I love the end results.

So for my layout I used the You Make My Heart Smile cut file.  This file actually comes with several different phrases and I cut 3 of them out, though I only used 2 for my page, but I just tucked the other one aside for another time!  I used a spare piece of cardstock that I had laying around, since I wasn't worried about keeping the file after I had sprayed it, though you could cut if from white cardstock and then keep the altered file for another project, kind of a two for one deal!

Since my spray title took up one side of my layout I used a bunch of patterned paper strips to fill the other side.  I dug into my stash and scraps and used up some older papers that I had been wanting to use for a while.  This was a great way to really use up lots of papers that are just laying around. I didn't need much in the way of embellishments since the title and papers were already so bold!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, and don't forget to check out the shop for lots of amazing designs!



Heart is Full | Morgan Langley February 15, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! I am excited to be sharing another LOVE post this week! I used the beautiful "Heart is Full Background" cut file to create this fun and simple layout of my sister, Violet, and I!
I cut the file first from pink card stock and then made a circle a little big larger than the file on my Silhouette to create the white circle to make the file stand out against this cute patterned paper from the "Turn the Page" collection. Then on to embellishing! 
I used the "Turn the Page" ephemera pack as well as the 12x12 paper pad to cut out those adorable flowers and butterflies. I stitched through the middle of some of the butterflies for added texture. I also added puffy hearts as well as a bow, camera, and hot air balloon sticker from the "Carousel" collection. 
I created my title using the thinkers and puffy sticker "happy" also from the "Carousel" collection with the ampersand piece from "Turn the Page". I loved this mixing of alphas. 
Thank you so much for stopping by! Follow me @morewithmorganl and Just Nick @justnickstudios on Instagram for more crafty updates! 

XOXO | Marcia Dehn-Nix February 5, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends! 

Marcia back today. This week is all about  L O V E  on the JustNick Studio blog ... and there are so many awesome digital cut files that work well for documenting all of your love stories on paper. I wanted to use the new XO Heart digital cut file to help frame my photo and decided to add some hearts to the background with the Cross My Heart Background digital cut file. I love how it turned out!

You can see the Cross My Heart Background has these little squares to form rows of hearts. In addition, I cut out just the inside heart from several different pattern papers. Hand stitching would have looked awesome with this cut file.

I love how the XO heart frames my photo. You can see a larger heart from the Hearts 2 digital cut file tucked underneath. I love the patchwork effect the background has, yet with that pink framed heart, the focus is still on my photo.

Here are the cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week!

Hey everyone!!! It's Cathy here and I'm back from my trip and I'm ready to scrap!  The thing about taking a long scrappy break though, is that sometimes even though I'm raring to go I just don't have any ideas coming to mind.  Well then in steps Becky Fleck and her June sketches and I'm saved!  So I have been really wanting to use some of my older products as well as some of my more vintage looking products, so I thought I would challenge myself with the sketch I was given.  My sketch is very modern and simple, a great jumping off point, so I decided to soften it up by replacing one of the middle layers with the Henna Heart cut file!  I cut it out in pink and then sprayed it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Cherry to get a shiny heart!  I had to make a small cut so that I could have it look like it was looping around my middle paper piece.  I then took her visual triangle of embellishments and just went to town!  I used up lots of older chipboard and stickers and was really happy to make a dent in my stash!

So here is the sketch that I was given!


And here is the cut file that I used for my project!


And here is my finished project!


Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! xoxo Cat

Hello Love February 19, 2016 07:49

Cut files and kits! Hello love! Date night with my husband! Hello love! Suzanna here today to share with you another layout that I created using the February Clique Kits kit and the exclusive cut files that accompany it, designed by Nicole from Just Nick.

There was a lot of color in this kit that has been really interesting to me to see how everybody used; people either selectively chose colors in groups of two or three or went all out and used all of them (Melissa's layout HERE comes to mind). I like to worth less color generally with the pink, yellow and black being my pick for this layout.

I mixed heart stickers and die cuts that accompanied the kit with the hearts within the cut file the "rain" down into the exclusive 4x4 Hello card. While most of the cut file is covered up, I like the foundation it created on the page in which to nestle all the fun bits and pieces.

Trios of the "xo" file can be found around the page in pops of yellow. The three form a visual triangle around the photo that lead your eye inward to the main focus of the layout.

Thanks Clique Kits for letting us experience your kits!

You & Me November 3, 2015 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! Marcia here today. I have a wedding layout to share with you. My daughter and her husband just celebrated their first anniversary and I was feeling guilty for not having finished scrapping all the pictures ... gasp!. I used the gorgeous Life is Beautiful collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios.

I used a couple different cut files on this layout. Since It's a wedding photo, I wanted to incorporate some hearts. I found a great heart border in the Hearts cut file.

The hearts were used to separate two pieces of pattern paper.

Now, you will also notice the Scribble Circle. This is from the Scribble Circle Background cut file. I deleted all but one circle and after cutting it out, stitched around it. I love the texture that stitching adds.

I added another larger scribble circle under my photo and I stitched this one as well. 

Don't be afraid to alter a cut file to suit your needs... Just imagine all the possibilities. Thanks for stopping by.


True Love {Heart Background} July 8, 2015 07:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone!

Melissa here with a layout showcasing one of the awesome background cut files in the shop.

I love using background cut files because it adds interest and rhythm to a page. They are especially fun for a clean and simple scrapper - which is what I use to label myself. Now, I just love to experiment and one of those ways of experimentation, is utilizing these cut files to their full potential. 

Here is the page I created:


I really love this heart background! I chose to use the .png version and traced it. After releasing the compound path, I left some of the hearts filled. Then, with the negative part cut out, I used gelatos to create a watercolor effect and layered them. On top of the color, I added some stencil work using modeling paste and other embellishments. I felt so artsy! And, the best part, it was super easy.


Thanks for swinging by today!
