Hello JustNick friends!
I tend to scrap smaller photos and square them but today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout using a 4x6 inch portrait photo. I struggled for a while shuffling things around my layout then I decided to use a frame with the ability to embellish it so it became the centre piece of my layout.
These frames are just gorgeous! I chose the portrait one to use on my layout (keeping in mind your photo with the heart on the inside of the frame). I resized to fit my photo using a multi coloured aztec paper from the Good Vibes collection by Simple Stories (all product for this is using this collection).
Firstly I created a border to contrast against the white card stock.
Once I had fixed my photo into place to the inner cut file frame I attached it to the centre of my page. I left the sides of the photo and frame untaped so I could tuck embellishments under.
I add the die cut FAB as my title to the top centre and finished off with a cute kissing emoji.
Under the photo frame at the bottom of my pageI added another row of super cute stickers and die cuts from the collection in keeping with the theme of my photo and layout. I added some messy machine sewing to add texture.
In designing the top and bottom of my layout first it allowed me to visually see my frame and how I would place my embellishments.
I have tucked die cut floral bunches under both sides of the inner cut file frame, I added a word sentiment stickers to both floral bunches finished off with a heart die cut. I played extra hearts over the cut file hearts with foam tape to add height.
I can't wait to use the other shaped infinity hearts frames on my layouts because it certainly added a real factor to my photo and layout!
Thank you for stopping by today and happy creating!

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!

Nathalie here with a new project filled with Christmas spirit. I just love this time of the year, it seems like my home becomes cozier as we approach Christmas. With that in mind, I created a project all about my baby and his favorite spot during the holidays.
As you can see our baby loves to nap in front or under the Christmas tree! So what better way to document this picture than to create a background filled with Christmas trees.
The Christmas tree background was created using the Fold a Tree cut file and some white cardstock. The cut was sized to about 8.5x11 in and most of the free spaces were backed with papers from the Studio Calico's Northern Light kit.
The cut out was then hand stitched to the background paper. To add more texture and interest to the page, a few stitches were used to secure the folded piece to the mat in some of the background trees.
To frame the picture of our baby, the rectangular frame image from the Infinity Hearts was cut form wood grain white cardstock. A bit of embroidery thread was looped along some of the edges of the frame to add texture to the page.
The title of this page was created using the Script Font cut file. The word "Peace" was welded together, and then cut twice from one of the papers from the Studio Calico's Northern Lights kit. A bit of foam adhesive pops the title from the page.
I love the end result of this page. The non-traditional colors combined with all the cut files and hand stitching complement the picture of our baby peacefully sleeping under the Christmas Tree.
Remember to stop by Just Nick Studio Store to check all the cut files used in this project, and all the new designs being added to the store. If you have questions on how this came together, do not hesitate to contact me.
Have a blessed Christmas!

Happy New Year! It's time for a new talented Guest Designer to join us on the blog!
Today, we have the talented Aleksandra Gadji sharing her talents with us.
Hi everyone! I am Alex from Sweden. I am 35 years old, passionate software engineer, mom to two adorable kids and wife to the most wonderful man on earth. Yep, I am a lucky woman :-) I started scrapbooking when my daughter was born, 8 years ago. Over the years, scrapbooking has become so much more than just a hobby and I am thrilled to be here and share this passion of mine with you <3
We asked Alex to share some projects with us using whichever cut files she was inspired to use from the store!
Check out what she sent us:
I fell in love with the big "Live Simply" cut file. I adore the big cloud, the hearts and the mix of fonts. I chose to keep it large and use it in white against darker background. I backed up the "dream big" part to make it stand out. That's something I really want my children to remember: to dare to have big dreams.
I didn't want to steal too much attention from the cut file, so I kept my design simple and only played with small, cute embellishments, adding them on top and around the beautiful text.
Cut file used: Live Simply
Butterfly and hearts. It doesn't get cuter than that! The second I saw them, I knew that I had to use them for a layout with my sweet, little girl. I played with the offset function to create three different sizes of the butterfly background and layered them on top of each other.
I cut the infinity hearts in a matching patterned paper and used it to frame my photo. To make my title stand out a little more, I used a sketch pen first before cutting it out. I love how well these cut files work together.
This month, you can grab the Butterfly Background for FREE now until midnight CST on January 31, 2016 using the code: BUTTERFREE at checkout.
Thank you so much to Alex for joining us on the blog today!

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing with you a love themed layout of my oldest son and daughter in law on their trip to Europe.
I love working with vellum and I had some red heart embossed vellum in my stash that I thought would work perfectly for this layout and Just Nick Cut Files.
I cut out the Hearts, Infinity Hearts Frames and Lots of Love cut files on my Silhouette Cameo. To adhere the vellum, I machine stitched the cut designs in place so there was no adhesive showing through onto the right side.
I hope you are inspired to use vellum on your projects with Just Nick cut files. Check out all the designs, including the designs I used on this layout in the Just Nick shop here.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!
