JustNick Cut File Store
Happy Birthday | Jen McMurtrey April 05, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick friends!
It's all about celebrations on the blog this week, so naturally I had to create a birthday-themed layout!
For this project I used the Banner Essentials and Let's Party cut files with the Pink Paislee Confetti Wishes collection.
I began by using the pink patterned paper and splattering gold, black, and white paint on it.
While the paint was drying, I used the Let's Party file to create the clusters of balloons in various sizes. Each of the balloons was backed with patterned paper from Confetti Wishes. Additionally, I used the numbers from Banner Essentials to cut 1-5, which I welded prior to cutting. I enlarged the number three and cut it out using patterned paper to make it more prominent.
Because there are so many patterns and colors on the layout, I stuck with a black and white photo so it wouldn't clash.
I clustered several die cuts and chipboard embellishments around the photo for added color and dimension.
Last was the gold Thickers title with gold circles and hearts throughout the project.
In the bottom-right corner I added Abby's initials and the date followed by a doodled border around the layout.
The finished layout is bright and cheery and captures the fun we had that day.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are inspired to create. Be sure to visit the JustNick store for these and many other wonderful designs!!
Small Joys - Cathy Martin November 20, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone! It's Cathy here and I'm up on the Just Nick blog today with a layout about being grateful for the small joys in life. Sometimes when everything is getting overwhelming it's nice to take a step back and think about all the small simple things that can be enjoyed. Whether it's the crisp smell of the cool air, laying down in a beautiful pile of leaves, or wrapping up in your favorite cozy sweater, these little things that sometimes seem so silly can be a huge help in keeping you grounded.
For my layout I chose the Leaf Circle Background cut file. I loved how it could be interpreted as a leaf, or a petal, or even a feather. I cut it out of teal cardstock just for a bit of a change-up from my usual white cardstock. I backed it with paper starting from the center ring and going outwards. so that it was the same paper on each ring all the way around. I used a mixture of old and new papers to back the cut file and then it was time to decide what to do for a background paper. Originally I wanted to use a patterned paper, but after trying to decide for over an hour I gave up. I ended up finding this dark wood grain and I really liked how it paired well with the dark colors in the photo. To add a little extra detail I painted tiny white dots in acrylic paint around the outer perimeter of the cut file.
For embellishing I primarily used products from the Turn The Page collection. It paired well with the colors I was using and many of the phrases were perfect for the mood I was trying to set. I also used some wood veneers to add an earthiness to the layout and I found some older burlap embellishments from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper to top it off. I added some Heidi Swapp color shine in two different pinks to break up the large space between clusters.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my project today! I think it's important for us as memory keepers to not only document family and events, but to document our lives and our ups and downs as we go through life!
Good Life | Jennifer McMurtrey August 05, 2017 07:00
Hey JustNick friends! It's new file day and I'm sharing a layout with the just-released Boho Florals 2.
My youngest daughter is a Pinterest-loving girl and she is constantly holed up in her room creating projects that she has pinned. A while back she made marbled paper by combining shaving cream with food coloring and the effect was amazing. Naturally, I took it so I could use it on a layout.
The materials for this project were all pulled from the July Hip Kit. First, I used several of the patterned papers along with some packaging and layered them behind this fun photo of me and my friend Mary. Next, I used Abby's marbled paper and cut several pieces from the Boho Florals 2 file.
With the photo in place, I loosely adhered the cut flowers around the photo so they have a lot of dimension and pop off of the page.
I followed that with the title and embellishments from the kit along with strips of patterned paper on the top and bottom of the layout. Last, I sprinkled several of the negative cuts from the floral cuts above and below the photo for added color.
The finished project is bright and colorful and captures the fun vibe of the photo.
Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to visit the JustNick shop for these and many other fantastic cut files.

Welcome back for another week of DT intros :) Today, help me welcome Jennie McGarvey to the team!
Hi, I'm Jennie McGarvey! I'm the mom of 3 school aged boys (Campbell, Sawyer and Harrison) and wife to Andy. We currently live in Southern California and enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures year round. I started scrapbooking when I was 12 and in the current style in 2001 when I was pregnant with my oldest son. I scrapped off and on until 2011, when I decided to get online and share my projects. I have a bright, linear and colorful style that I use on my pages about my kids, pocket pages and cards. I have been published in various publications and currently also design for Scraptastic Kit Club, Bella Blvd. and We R Memory Keepers.

Meet Marcia Dehn-Nix June 06, 2015 07:00 1 Comment
Help me welcome Marcia Dehn-Nix to the team!
Hello, My name is Marcia. I am married to the most wonderful guy and we live in Minnesota (where winters are way too long and summers are way too short). We have three adult kids. Our oldest just finished college and got married! Another is studying to be a Vet. My youngest is not sure what he wants to do but is working toward a Math/Physics degree.
I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years. My scrapbooking evolved out of a love for photography. In fact, I used to be a wedding photographer! Besides my love for all forms of paper crafting, I have a soft side when it comes to cute, furry animals. My family fosters kittens and puppies on occasion for a local rescue. Currently in residence is the family dog Satchel, and 3 cats; Delta, Spook, and Xena (my latest stray acquisition). I do have a 9-5 job working as a software engineer. Yup, I am a nerd too.

Meet Jaclyn Rench ! June 05, 2015 07:00 2 Comments
We are happy to share with you another talented lady to join our team in 2015.
I'm Jaclyn Rench, a stay-at-home mommy to three awesome kids and wife of 13 years to a super supportive husband. By day I spend my hours kissing boo-boos, refereeing squabbles, planning playdates, packing lunches, shuffling children from here to there, and trying to figure out what in the heck to fix for dinner that is healthy AND something my kids will eat! Once my kids are tucked into bed, however, you can find me at my crafting desk into the wee hours of the night and early morning, documenting the stories and memories that come out of those non-stop busy days. I hope someday my scrapbooks will give my children a good reminder of the memories of their childhood and a sense of just how much they are loved.

Meet Aurelie Cormier June 04, 2015 07:00 8 Comments
Help me welcome Aurelie Cormier to the team!
I originally hail from Cheticamp, a beautiful Acadian village right on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS. Studying in Moncton, I quickly fell in love with NB and have been a permanent resident since 2005. I now reside in Dieppe with my husband, Mathieu, our six-year old son, Louis-Olivier, our one-year old daughter, Éloïse, and our cat, Caillou. Since 2007, I am a public servant by day and a full-fledged scrapper by night.
Scrapbooking has become an integral part of my life. I try doing something scrapbook-related every day, may it be working on a layout, browsing through online galleries or reading scrapbook magazines. Published in a few editions of Canadian Scrapbooker and most recently in France's own Histoires de Pages, my style has been known to be called "rustic", which is fine by me as it enables me to relish in fattening things up with layers, dimension, tearing and texture. Other than scrapbooking, I have rekindled a romance with reading through a monthly book club I joined at work in February 2012. I also tutor, teach voice classes and sing most weekends at a few church services around the area.

Meet Lee-Anne Thornton!
I am married to my best friend Rick and have three great kids, a son who is 15, a daughter 28 that is married and a son 30 that is married. Both of my married children live about 200 miles away. While my 15 year old son is at school, I love to scrapbook in my studio.
I began my wonderful scrapbooking journey in 2001 and it's been quite the ride! In the past 3 years, I have been honored to be published in several scrapbooking magazines including Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and Scrapbook And Cards Today and have served on a variety of design teams.
My other passions besides scrapbooking are cooking, baking, photography, flowers, animals and going to the mountains near where I live. I am very excited to be asked to join the first ever Just Nick Design Team and to put my much loved Silhouette Cameo to work!

Meet Guiseppa Gubler! June 02, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Let's kick things off by announcing our first DT member - Guiseppa Gubler!
Usually when I throw out my name Guiseppa, most people never forget who I am. I think having a unique name has been fun and really helpful in many aspects of my life, including scrapbooking...like I said, most people never forget the name. I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years now.
I jumped on the scrapbooking band wagon when it was so new, so I have seen a lot of changes in the industry. I spend a lot of time scrapbooking (one of the benefits of having children in school all day). I have now created over 80 albums since I began. I like to think of myself as a clean scrapbooker, but I love dimension on my pages and find my self going through huge amounts of foam adhesive. I enjoy scrapbooking so much that about five years ago I dove into the design team world. I have been published in many print and online magazines. My all time favorite tool is my Silhouette Cameo and that is why I thought it was a good idea to have the chance to design for JustNick!
I have been married to my number one supporter Sam for nearly 18 years and we have 3 children; Braden age 18, Janica 16, and our little Angel Sterling passed away eight years ago from "The Bubble Boy Disease." Never has scrapbooking meant so much to me as when he passed away. I have all of those wonderful memories of him preserved through scrapbooking. When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy spending time with my family. You can often find us in the mountains camping, hiking, fishing and exploring on our 4 wheeler. I also enjoy reading and traveling. Just over two years ago I became a Zumba Instructor. I enjoy keeping in shape as well as helping others to do the same all while dancing...so fun!
I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite passions with JustNick's fabulous designs!
