Hey there paper peeps! Well it seems that January is just flyin right on by isn't it?! I would like to get a jump on my handmade Valentine's this year, so I'm here to show you a fun & easy way to make a whole bunch, all at once!
I picked up some cute corrugated hearts at Hobby Lobby in the Valentine's Craft section, it's a pack of red & white hearts! A painted some of the white ones light pink and some mint green, then wiped some white paint over that when it dried, just to soften the color a little bit. Then, I cut a bunch of the "love" word cut file out, a few extra in case I messed up lol!
Then comes the fun part! Find pretty bits & pieces to layer under and around your love word! In this case I used light pink lace pieces, pretty floral ephemera, and of course, sequins!
The possibilities are endless! We all have those pretty scraps left over from other projects, now is the perfect time to use them! No more hoarding lol!
If you're not sure on how to create a heart shaped card base, I kinda created a short cut to use.. just take a white notecard, and layer your heart on top of it with the left side hanging off the folded side a bit. (It's important to leave a piece of the folded edge not cut, because that's going to keep your 2 heart pieces together and make it an actual opening card.) Then just trace and cut! Boom an instant heart card!
I hope you are inspired to create your own lovely happy mail! I can't wait to mail these out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday celebration, and cheers to us fast approaching a new year! I don't know about you guys but I will definitely be glad to see 2016 go in some respects, but in others I was so happy for many of the experiences gained during the year. I am loving my time here on the JustNick design team and I adore her files, so I'm so glad to share another one with you all today! So even though Christmas is done, that just means for me that it's time to get scrapping all of those wonderful photos and memories while it's still wintery white outside. I absolutely adored the Holiday Tree cut file when she put it up in the shop and I knew I needed to use it asap so I decided not to wait until next Christmas and to use it for a holiday photo now! My original plan for this layout was to use a picture of my son and to use a gray/brown wood grain paper as my background, but after stumbling on this funky turquoise Websters Pages paper I changed up my game plan and used a picture of my daughter instead. I love the funky, eclectic look of the layout and all the bright fun pops of colour and bling throughout!

Hey everyone it's Cathy and I'm getting in on the freebie fun! For my layout today I'm using the free Pine Needle Bough cut file available in the shop! If you want to get yourself this cute little file make sure you use the code BOUGHFREE. It's only free for today though, so make sure you pop over to the shop asap. I loved this cut file and when I saw it I immediately thought of it as making a cute accent to add to a wreath, so I grabbed another JustNick cut file that I had on my computer and cut out a wreath. I then cut out my bough and sprayed it with black Heidi Swapp colour shine. I love how bold and fun it looks on my layout and the added pompoms just make it even that much more fun!

14 Days of Holidays - Giveaway Day 5 December 7, 2015 07:00 3 Comments
Welcome to Day 5 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
Todays free cut file is Holiday Sentiments.
I absolutely love the free cut file that is available for you today and, I think you will love it too! It's a doozy packed with some lovely sentiments. These are so perfect for cards but, I can picture them being used on just about any holiday project.
Fun, right??? The fonts are just so perfect. I created two cards and a gift tag using several of these sentiments. They are so easy to size and cut out to fit perfect on each project.
This first card is a standard A2 card.
How cheery is that? I did a watercolor wash on the base and added some paint drips. Then, using some fun sparkly red cardstock, I cut out the merry&bright sentiment rather large. With some snowflake sticker embellishing, this card will hopefully brighten up someone's holiday!
The second card I made is a 6x6 size. Every once in awhile I like to create one of these. I use the larger size for cards that will be signed by more than one person or to have room to add photos or a letter. This time, I wanted to use more than one word. I chose three that seem to go nicely together - joy, peace, noel.
To create a fun and interesting backdrop, I splattered some red watercolor and used the scribbles 1 cut file.
Finally, because I was just having too much fun AND I was figuring out what to do with the last of my 12x12 piece of cardstock, I created this gift tag.
I cut out the 'joy' to fit large. I like the look of words and images going off the canvas of the page. The background is a watercolor wash.

14 Days of Holidays - Giveaway Day 2 December 2, 2015 00:00 2 Comments
Hello JustNick friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
Today's Free Cut File is Ornaments
Christine joining you today with some shaped cards that I made using this file! I love making shaped cards and these worked perfectly for that!
I made one card with each ornament shape available! I love that there are four fun options! In case you are wondering how I made them into cards here's a little detail into that:
First off I rotated the ornament so that it was upside down. I then chose to create a mirror image below it. This makes it so that I now have two of the ornaments. I then put the hook part of the ornaments close enough together that they are slightly overlapping and weld them together. You could also do this and mirror the ornament to the side and weld sides together instead of the hook. Either way you end up with a really cute card! If you have questions I am happy to help explain further!
Now on to a little detail about each card and some of the additional cuts that I used! First up is the Merry Christmas Card.
For every card I stuck with a similar base start. I had a white ornament and backed it with red patterned papers. I then added a silver metallic paper for the top part of the ornament and added some silver stickles and silver gemstones. I also cut all my sentiments in green. Doing these things helped simplify the process a bit. I then added some stickers or die cuts to each card to fit the personality of the cut. For this one I added the Merry Wishes file for my sentiment. I like how it is open and airy just like the original file itself.
I'm a sucker for stars and adding a peace sentiment to this from the Holiday Sentiments just seemed right for a night scene.
A santa hat tops off the word "joy" which also comes from the Holiday Sentiments set.
Last up is a Be Merry card with a sentiment from the Merry Wishes set. We can't wait to see how you are adding JustNick cut files to your Holiday projects too!
