Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today. February is just days away, and that has me in the mood to craft with hearts, hearts and more hearts! I'm excited to share a page I made documenting the sweet friendship building between my daughter and niece. This project just wouldn't be complete without some Just Nick heart designs.
The Patterned Hearts cut file, when sized down, makes a fun embellishment on a page. I selected the large dotted pattern heart, sized it to around 1.5" square and cut it from white cardstock. I then backed it with a tone on tone red stripe, adhered it to my page with foam adhesive and accented it with wood veneer, enamel dots and chipboard - to make it part of a small embellishment cluster, alongside my journaling block.
I snuck in a second digital cut design in the form of a frame around my journaling. With all of the straight lines and angles on my page, the circular style frame from Infinity Hearts is an unexpected element. It creates even more focus on my journaling. The typed text was formatted in a word processing program, to fit within the boundaries of my frame. In addition, I've placed it to slightly overlap two of my three photos, to tie the focal elements of my page together.
Thanks for joining me today, to see how I've incorporated some of my favorite heart themed designs onto a recent layout. Happy Crafting!

Grateful November 22, 2016 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
This week, with Thanksgiving looming for us in the States, we are focusing on things to be thankful for. Of course I am grateful for my parents who just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary! Whenever I asked them for help in the past, they were there for me; babysitting, dog sitting, you name it. But this past summer, those tables were turned. My Dad needed emergency surgery and for weeks following could not do his own yard work. He needed help! Thankfully it was only a couple weeks and my siblings and I are close enough that we could all help. So this November, I am extremely grateful that my Mom and Dad are still around for me to enjoy.
I used the Infinity Hearts digital cut file to frame the photo of my parents. Then I added the heart border from the Hearts digital cut file on the right side under the so very blessed project life card. My title "Grateful" came from the new Many Thanks digital cut file.
Here are the digital cut files I used today:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! For those in the States, Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello, it's Jaclyn joining you today. If you've been following along the blog this week, you know that some of the designers have been challenged to use four or more Just Nick cut files on one page or project. I've loved seeing each designers take on this task and am excited to share my results with you today.
I'm going to be honest, my design aesthetic is pretty clean and linear, so it's often a special exception for me to use more than one or two cut files on a page. With that being said, I was certainly up for the challenge and the creative push it gave me to try something new.
My husband and I will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary in the fall and I've had it on my page ideas list to do a 'then and now' style page to commemorate this milestone. The story I wanted to tell was of all the changes and challenges we've been through in that time and ultimately how our love has helped us survive it all. I started the page by searching my Just Nick cut file library for anything and everything love/heart related. I first landed on the Simple Card Sentiments file - knowing that the script 'love you' phrase would be a perfect title.
I cut the sentiment from white cardstock and adhered it with foam adhesive to create added depth and shadows.
Next, I landed on the Patterned Hearts cut file. This one's a favorite of mine and I've been waiting for just the right project to use it on. I still had my white cardstock loaded into my silhouette machine, so I sized and cut three out of the four incluced hearts for my page. Each heart was then backed with a scrap of paper to coordinate with it's placement on the page.
You might have spied another Just Nick cut design in the previous close up photo. The Infinity Heart Frame design makes several appearances on my page as well. I cut three of the circle design to accompany each of the patterned hearts on my page. Again, I cut the design from white cardstock, this time backing each circular frame with a coordinating patterned paper.
I snuck in one more detail and cut file on my design. I used the numbers from Banner Essentials to include the number 15 within one of the infinity heart circles. Doing so was easy, by simply placing and sizing the numbers inside the rings and welding everything together. It makes for a cohesive trio of elements throughout my design as well as, giving me the opportunity to build this 15 year milestone into the overall asthetic.
Here's a closer look at each of the files I've used on today's page. We hope you'll give this challenge a try too - the possibilities and combinations are endless!
Love your Friends! February 04, 2016 07:00
Love is in the air! "Love Moments" don't just happen in February...there are tons of little "love" moments throughout the year that are so important to capture, like this one of my daughter and her close friend reading a book together.
I used the Script Phrases cut file to cut out the "Love This Moment" title. I love the little swirls at the beginning and end of the phrase!
And to frame my photo, I used the "Infinity Heart" file to cut out a white heart frame. Then I added some faux stitching, and some paper and chipboard hearts.
And here are some of the bits that I added to the page:
Hope you are enjoying all the new and wonderful "love" files in the store!
