JustNick Cut File Store

JustNick + Jillibean Soup = fun! August 25, 2016 07:00 4 Comments

Hey everyone! Nicole here today to share a fun about me project for our team up with my friends at Jillibean Soup

 

I am lucky enough to be on the Jillibean Soup team, and they are a great group of people. I love their products and truly create some of my most favorite projects with their products. I decided to do an about me page with a few cut files from the store.

I used the two new Jillibean Soup collections, Hardy Hodgepodge and Chit Chat Chowder on this page. I started by diecutting the title from various papers in both collections, using the Simple Set Alpha from the store. I love the playful and simple letters, and mixing the colours is lots of fun too!

Next, I wanted to fill the bottom of the page, but didn't want to use my typical background cut file, so I diecut a bunch of different labels from Labels One, again in varying papers from the Jillibean Soup collections.

I added in some diecut Ink Splats and then added in a bunch of Jillibean Soup stickers, wood enamel dots and wood veneers to finish my page quite easily.

I love how it all came together quickly, and colorfully too!

Cut files used:

Simple Set Alphabet

Labels One

Ink Splats

Now for the fun stuff! Leave a comment here on this post, or over on the Jillibean Soup blog (or on our @justnickstudio instagram) and have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to our store!

I hope you are enjoying this team up and all the fun projects that are being shared!


No Rain No Rainbows August 09, 2016 05:46

Hey everyone, it's Cathy, and I'm back with another layout!  This time I decided to use two cut files for my layout, the first one is No Rain No Rainbows, and the second is the Confetti background.  I wanted to created a rainfall effect on my background and the Confetti background did the job perfectly!  I backed the cut file with a piece of multi-colour paper and I really love the effect.  It almost looks like a shower of jellybeans!  For my title I used the Rainbow cut file and painted it a variety of colours using my watercolours.  I then added white and black splatters and outlined the file to really make it pop off the page!  I kept the embellishments minimal since I didn't want to compete with my awesome title and rain effect!  I love how bright and cheery this layout turned out and I am super excited to see what other cut file combinations I can come up with using the Just Nick files!  Have an awesome day!

Here are the cut files used for this project!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video!


Happy 2016! December 31, 2015 07:00

This is a bit of a dual posting for me. 

First I want to thank all my DT members this year for a blog FULL of inspiration!!! Some of our DT members are moving on, and so I want to say a big THANK YOU to each of them for their dedication and friendship this year! I hope we stay in touch.

Tomorrow we will announce our 2016 Design Team. We have so much good things in store for JustNick - I really hope you continue to visit for ideas and inspiration and a little shopping too :)

Today, I do have a project using a couple files from the store ! I wanted to do a bit of a recap project and here is what I came up with:

I used the Pebbles 2 Background layered over some white cardstock for the base of my page...you can just barely see the texture, but trust me - it is there!

Next, I added in a large title using the Outline Alphas cut file - it is really a simple design, but great for adding lots of colour to your project!

I added in a Circle Sentiment and some Ink Splats to finish off my page.

That's it for me today! Make sure you stop back in tomorrow for a list of our new DT

Happy New Year!


Summer Memories November 09, 2015 07:00

Alas, Autumn is upon us here in the northern hemisphere and it has definitely made it's welcome here in the pacific northwest. However, that doesn't stop me from taking time to remember all my fond memories from the Summer. Especially one in particular. 

I had the opportunity to go visit my moms younger brother and family. They have always been special to me but, we had all not seen each other since their wedding and I was 8 years old. Unacceptable! Such is life, though. So, the week was so surreal and wonderful. It's now an annual event and I can't wait to see them again.

For this page, I used the word 'remember' from the Word 3 cut file. So perfect! I also enlarged the ink splats cut file to layer behind the photos and add some fun interest and balance to the page.

I just love the Summer Vibes collection from Simple Stories. I love how the colors just flow and the pink ink splats are so happy to me on that wood grain! 

Hey... just because it's crock pot weather here in these parts, make sure you still take time to remember those moments of basking in the sun, too! And get you some awesome cut files to use on those pages!

Cut files used: Word 3, Ink Splats


1984 Smile August 13, 2015 07:00

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here today to share the most recent layout I've created using some of Nicole Nowosad's fabulous JustNick cut files. And yes, this time around I've incorporated not one, not two, but THREE of her awesome cut files on one design. With any further adieu, here it is:

Can you see the cut files in action? Look a little closer... Closer... ;) Yes, that's right! I used the Basic Hearts, Ink Splats, and Simple Scallop Strips files. Basic Hearts? Yes, I promise, one of them is there... cut in that wood grain patterned paper, I opted to hide the "heart" form per say behind my layered photo cluster and use it as a funky background piece instead. Totally created the retro feel I was looking for - yes, that's me on that photo, way back in 1984 when I lost my first tooth! The Ink Splats were cut from the crossword grid patterned paper and the scallops from that blue metallic paper - which is a flopportunity at its best - I didn't cut the scalloped border using the right setting, but ended up loving it anyway when it created a neat score line through the cut. Wanna see up close? Ta-da!

Keep on tuning in to see what the other members of JustNick's design team come up with! And have a peek in the JustNick store - Nicole is rocking it with awesome new files uploaded to the store on a weekly basis. The possibilities are endless and it adds a touch of whatever you need to any scrappy project.

Happy scrapping!
