Sweet | Majken Pullin September 14, 2021 07:00

Hello papercrafting friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout about my sweet kitty, Oreo.  I must say, I take far too many photos of this adorable kitty.  He has so many facial expressions and moods.  Let's look at the layout.

Here is Oreo in "bread mode" on my son's bed.  I have all the heart eyes for this sweet kitty!  I began by sizing the floral and leaves from Simple Floral 1 in several sizes in Silhouette Studio, then cutting them from white textured cardstock.  Next, I backed the flowers with colorful patterned paper and the leaves with a green patterned paper. 

I trimmed white textured cardstock to 8" x 10" and spattered some blue watercolor to let it dry.  Once dry, I distressed the edges and matted with an aqua cardstock and sewed along the edges.

I used the flowers mainly as the base for my photo.

And I used the ephemera for my title and to add interest.

For the main base of the layout, I used dark blue cardstock, which I spattered with watered down white acrylic paint. 

And I put two additional florals and leaves on the top left corner.

Here is the Simple Floral 1 cut file I used on today's project!

Thank you for stopping by the JustNick Studio blog today.  Don't forget to follow us on Instagram, too!  We love to see projects you create with JustNick cut files using #justnickstudio tag.

Have a great week!

Love You the Most by Sophie Delorme September 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Leaf Wreaths” and “Build a Wreath”, duplicated and cut them on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I used a Felicity Jane Kit named “June” for this page.

 

I started by applying some Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical powder on a thick white cardstock to create a mixed media background in soft peach and orange tones.

 

I cut a big rectangle of patterned paper and turned up the upper edge so that we can see the reverse side and its beautiful pink floral pattern, and made a zig zag stitch along with a checkered strip of patterned paper to adhere everything on the background.

 

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo and placed it on the right side of the page.

 

I cut the Leaf Wreaths in a few pieces and mixed them with the other foliage to created two beautiful clusters on both sides of my photo. I only adhered their base so that it creates movement and dimension to the page.

 

 

I mixed the clusters with a few floral embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection.

 

I also created a bouquet on the upper left side of the layout with a few leaves that I had left, and tied them with a beautiful bow made out of a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

My title is also from a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

 

Finally, I created another cluster of embellishments with a journaling card, some tags, a heart and flowers to handwrite my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am very happy with the result! These beautiful leaves add so much to the page! And cutting them on a white cardstock doesn’t make the page too busy and highlights the photo beautifully!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you in some way today,

 

Thank you for stopping by!

 

Sophie xx

Enjoy The Moment | Sheena Rowlands September 6, 2021 07:00

Hi Everyone x

Sheena here again sharing with you a new 12x12 layout featuring 2 of the wonderful Just Nick Studio cut files.

Enjoy Every Moment.

I used the Floral Screen cut file which I turned in the Silhouette software to enable me to cut it as a triangle in white cardstock.

I backed this cut file with variegated patterned papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection. I adhered it to my background paper using foam pads for dimension.

My photos were added over the point of the cut file & fussy cut flowers tucked around them.

My title is also a Just Nick Studio cut file, Enjoy the Moment.

This was cut from more of the ombre patterned paper, then mounted on an offset cut from white cardstock. This was adhered over the flowers before adding white splatters to the page.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


Happy | Majken Pullin September 2, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout using a new cut file called "Cathedral Circle" (link coming soon!), and I used three sizes of the cut file as templates to ink soft pink around a sheet of white textured 12x12 cardstock.  Let's take a look at the full layout first.

I love the pinks in this collection with the dark blue/gray, and I decided to align my ink to my shirt as well.

First, I created three sizes of the Cathedral Circle cut file in Silhouette Studio and cut them out of white textured cardstock.  Then I randomly placed them on my 12x12 white cardstock and softly inked around each, overlapping occasionally.

Once the ink was dry, I spattered a little bit of dark blue mixed with black on the top right and bottom left.  I trimmed my white cardstock slightly, and then distressed three of the edges, adhering it to the blue patterned paper base.

For the main section of my photo area, I layered tags and ephemera as my base.

And I put different ribbon and fabric on some of the tags.

I even tucked the smaller cut file at the top of the photo.  And then I used some ephemera and sequins to add further interest.

Here is the new cut file:

Cathedral Circle

I'm so glad you could join us on the JustNick Studio blog today!  Have a great rest of your week.

So Happy Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez September 1, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 For this layout I used the Boho Borders 1 cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I cut the cut file, for this I used different papers from the Pinkfresh Studio collection, The Best Day. Then I painted my background in matching colors.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut file and make layers with the journaling bits from the collection, then glued my photo on top.
 
For my title I used one of the ephemera pieces. To finish my layout I added more ephemera, puffy stickers, cardstock stickers, chipboard flair and enamel dots.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

Sweet child o'mine by Valeska Guimaraes August 30, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new layout using a lot of new awesome cut files from JustNick store.

I used the Retro Screen for the background, and for the title I used Upper Case Funky Alpha and Lower Case Funky Alpha. The collection I used is Legendary from Cocoa Vanilla Studios, and I also used some acrylic embellishments from Thata Scrapbook & Papelaria, a brand from Brazil.

For this project, I made some experiment. I cut the retro screen cut file out of  gray cardstock and I used the rest of the background cut paper as a stencil on my yellow patterned paper and white acrylic paint to make like a shadow under my cut file on gray paper. I did the same with the title.

For my title, I used the alphabets to create my words. First, I cut the words out of a patterned paper, then I made a outline cut with gray cardstock. Glued both and I place it with 3D foam stickers to give some popped effect.

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments because I really wanted to focus on my cut files.

Hope you enjoyed it and get inspired to experiment new techniques in your projects. There are so many beautiful possibilities to use cut files.

Check out the new releases in the JustNick store.

Thank you for stopping by.

 


Beautiful Friends by Sophie Delorme August 27, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a sweet layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Script Alpha” and “Labels 3” that were released a few weeks ago.

 

 

 

I cut the frames in a few different sizes on white cardstock with my cutting machine and carefully stitched on each frame with white thread.

 

I used a collection from Felicity Jane called “Ginny” for this page.

 

I used a soft pink cardstock for my background and added a few splatters of white acrylinc paint on it. I cut the upper and bottom part of the cardstock and placed it on a patterned paper. I made a zigzag stitch on the top junction of the papers.

 

I added different patterned papers in 3 of the frames, my photo in the bigger one, my journaling printed on velum in the lower frame and created a simple shaker with the smaller frame right next to my title. I popped every frame except the velum one with adhesive foam.

 

 

 

For my title, I used the Script Alpha cut file and created the word “friends” and did an offset cut that I cut on velum for a beautiful and soft look. I also added adhesive foam to the word to make it stand out.

 

 

I stamped the world “Beautiful” directly on my background, nested between the letters of “Friends”, with black ink.

 

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments from the sale collection.

 

I LOVE the soft and sweet look of this layout. I hope you do too !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These frames have so many possibilities ! You can use them for your photos but also, like I did here, for your journaling, to include patterned papers or even shaker elements to your design!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today ! Thank you for stopping by !

Bloom | Sheena Rowlands August 24, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing a new 12x12 layout with you featuring 2 more of the Just Nick Studio fabulous cut files.

Bloom.

 

I used the Pretty Wreath cut file  which I cut twice from white cardstock as I wanted it to overhang each side of my layout.

Once I had decided on the placement of the Pretty Wreaths, using my distress inks and finger daubers I lightly inked onto plain white cardstock where the flowers and leaves would be. This was very therapeutic to do as I wasn't after any neat edges.

The cut file was adhered over the ink with foam pads to give dimension. I then embellished inside both halves of the wreath using mainly Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real collection.

My title is from the Bloom cut file set, which I cut in white cardstock then inked to coordinate and stand out from the layout.

I finished the layout with a few enamel dots added to the little flowers.

 I hope you feel inspired to check out this cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


Friends | Majken Pullin August 16, 2021 10:30

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share another scrapbook layout. On today's project I am using two cut files: Script Alpha to create my title and Scribble Circle Background that I "chopped" and enlarged to create a bit of a different background.  Let me show you how I modified and used the cut files!

To create the single large scribble circle, I first released the compound path and moved the image to the side, deleted the remaining duplicate image, then put the compound path back on the one you moved to the side. 

Next, use the knife tool (if you don't have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, you can use the eraser tool instead) to cut one corner circle from the background.

Once the circle is separated, delete the remaining circles and zoom in so you can see the edges well.

Then refine the edges using the eraser tool. Don't stress this part if you aren't exact...you can cut the circle out and use fine-tip scissors to smooth your edges.

I then enlarged the circle, cut it out from white textured cardstock, and then used watercolors to add color in different concentrations to match the patterned papers.  While that dried, I tore two strips to put along the left and right of my base page. I used watered down white acrylic paint and blue watercolor to spritz ink on my base.

After that dried, I put my circle on the base page and sewed messy circles around the cut file.  Then I framed my photos with patterned paper and ephemera to put inside my circle.

I laced my circle with stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard pieces, and more.

I cut "friends" from dark blue patterned paper using the new Script Alpha cut file and followed the circle to create my title.

Here are the two cut files I used in my project today:

Go grab some cut files today to create with, and don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio so we can see what you are making!

Have a fantastic week!

Majken

 


Natures Sunshine | Sheena Rowlands August 11, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I am sharing with you my latest 12 x 12 layout featuring a lovely summery Just Nick Studio cut file.

Natures Sunshine.

When I saw this Sunshine cut file in a recent release I knew I wanted to use it so got creating straight away.

I chose one of the sun shapes and duplicated it, changing the size of a few of them till I had 5 ready to cut. I then cut them from a single sheet of white cardstock.

Whilst the cardstock was still on my cutting mat I painted them. This way I could keep track of all the pieces and also it was easier to have them tacked down even though it does look quite messy!

Once the cardstock was dry I carefully lifted off the pieces I wanted to use and attached them to my background patterned paper using foam pads.

I've used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection for this layout.

Not wanted to cover too much of the suns, I added my layered photo to the bottom left with a few Sunkissed flowers to embellish it and added a little detail to the top right to balance this.

Using the Sunshine cut file again I cut the word out twice in yellow and white cardstock and also a small offset in a blue cardstock. These were all adhered together before adding to the page.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x

 

 

 

 


Live in the Moment by Sophie Delorme August 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Live in the Moment” and “Summer Icons”.

 

 

 

The collection used to create my page is “Summer Farmhouse” from Simple Stories.

 

I cut the “Live in the Moment” title on white cardstock and then did an offset cut and cut it on patterned paper. I added adhesive foam behind the title for more dimension.

 

 

I used the beautiful flowers, clouds and beach umbrella from the Summer Icons that I backed with patterned papers as well. I arranged them around my black and white photo, adding dimensional foam on the back of a few of them.

 

 

I teared big chunks of patterned papers that I layered on the bottom of the layout to ground everything, and handwrote my journaling with a white gel pen.

 

 

I painted very softly around my photo with watercolors, and added beautiful Pinkfresh Studio crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how the title stands out beautifully on this page !

 

I hope you feel inspired by my creation today, thank you for stopping by !

Live in the Moment - Mixed Media | Majken Pullin August 7, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you this August day to share a mixed media scrapbook layout with a fun title "Live in the Moment", a cut file new last month to the JustNick Studio shop!  Let's take a look:

Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection is made for mixed media, and I decided to get messy.  I painted Gesso on my white textured cardstock, let it dry, and then painted pink texture paste vertically on the background.  Next I stamped polka dots over the top using a similar color of Distress Ink and spritzed some black ink over that.  Finally, I used a stencil and some white texture paste over my background.

While all that dried, I cut the Live in the Moment cut file from green patterned paper thinking my title would bring out the green in the flower stem from my photo.  But I found it to be too much, so I cut it out again using a black patterned paper.  Then I found that one to be too dark.  Ultimately I decided to use the green as a shadow to the other one, and I like the dimension of it!

After that, the rest came together quickly with some ephemera, chipboard pieces, and stickers.

Here is the cut file:

Live in the Moment

Now more than ever, we all deserve to "live in the moment"!  Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Good Vibes | Majken Pullin July 29, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout that is a tribute to my favorite caffeinated beverage. My former favorite was a different flavor that has since been discontinued -- booooo! -- so I found this one.  Here's my layout:

Good Vibes

I started with the pink stripe background as my base, and I decided my photo area would go in an 8 1/2" x 11" mat of white textured cardstock (which I spritzed with some pink and pinkish-orange watercolors) with a pink mat. I machine stitched around the edge. 

I cut the Good Vibes cut file out in blue-green cardstock, and then I offset the phrase slightly using my Silhouette Studio software and cut the offset out in white textured cardstock to give my title some dimension.

I used the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping It Real puffy alphabet stickers to finish my title area above the photo.

I used a journal spot to help mat my photo area, and I tucked ephemera around it as well.

On the left side of my layout, I machine stitched some wavy lines down the side and then layered some ephemera and enamel dots down the stitching.

Here is the cut file used on my project today:

After a very challenging year and half, we all deserve some good vibes! Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Have a great weekend!

Beach Life I Valeska Guimaraes July 28, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here with you today!

Are you enjoying summer? Are you planning something fun?

Today I am sharing another summery layout with two amazing new cut files: "Beach Life" and "Layered Waves" available in JustNick store.

I cut the "Layered Waves" cut file from a wavy patterned paper and stitched it separately. I used the beautiful June collection from Felicity Jane.

For the title, I cut the "Beach Life" cut file from a striped patterned paper and make it bigger enough to be the same size of my wave.

Everything was glued with dimension in a white cardstock which I made a watercolor background to look like splashes of water.

I glued the three layered waves parts with 3d foam stickers and put some flowers between them.

I put my photos on the top of the page with some embellishment around, tag and puffy stickers with foam tape to create some height.

I really liked how these cut files came out in my layout with these papers. 

Hope you enjoyed it too and are inspired to create beautiful pages. JustNick cut files are so easy to work with and helps you with the design of your project.

Check out these cut files and much more in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

 


Captured Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez July 27, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you my new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Labels 1 cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I painted two white cardstocks in rainbow colors and used them to cut the cut file. Then I used the labels to make my background.
 
Once my background was done, I glued my photo with adhesive foam to create dimension. To finish my layout, I added stickers from the April Kits, from Hip Kit Club, and some epoxy flairs from Scrappin Happy Studio.
 
I love how this layout turned out. Hope you all like it and get the inspiration to create beautiful things. Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a lovely day!

Homemade Sunshine by Sophie Delorme July 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing another cute summery layout !

 

 

I used the “Cool Treats” that was just released recently on the shop !

 

 

I cut it twice on white cardstock and really made it the main element on my page !

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a mixed media background.

 

I used a Carta Bella Paper collection named “Summer” for this page. I backed each treat with all sorts of patterned papers from the collection.

 

 

I also used velum on top of pink cardstock for the popsicle next to my photo on the left.

 

 

I created an ice cream cone with craft cardstock that I embossed with an embossing plate. Looove this effect !

 

 

I mounted some of the treats on adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

I embellished my page with a few floral stickers and created a banner on the top right side of my photo.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling and added many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels for a bit of sparkle !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the result ! I hope you do too and that my page could inspire you ! A cut file is the best way to get started with a layout, as it dictates so easily the design !

 

Thanks for stopping by !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

Beach Vacation | Majken Pullin July 16, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here today with you to share another Summer project during Summer weeks.  I have a very beach-y vacation layout today.

Doesn't it just make you think of warm breezes, sunshine, and cool waves?

I cut the "BEACH" from Beach Sand Surf on my Cameo in white textured cardstock and backed the open parts of the cut file with the ombre paper.  Then I machine stitched around all the letters in the word.

I cut the letters for "VACATION" out from Outline Alpha and backed those letters from the reverse of the same ombre paper to stack below on the left side of the layout. 

And I tucked little bits of ephemera and stickers around the letters.

I created a border along the bottom of the page to mimic water.

I put my photo area to the right of "VACATION" and sprinkled a few enamel dots to create a visual triangle.  And my journaling fit underneath my photo area.

I hope you have some fun summer memories to scrapbook - go check out the JustNick Studio store for all kinds of fun, summer cut files!

Here's a look at the cut files used in today's project:

Summer Vacation | Valeska Guimaraes July 14, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here today with a new 12x12 layout with two beautiful cut files  available in the JustNick store. 

Summer is already here and we are so excited about it, are you?

I combined two new designs in this layout.

One of them is the Makin Waves cut file that I use in the whole page and the other one is Hello Summer 2  for my title.

First of all, I made a watercolor background in a white cardstock and let it dry.

Then I cut my waves from another white cardstock and cut the same design again from a patterned paper but in this time I used the offset tool of my Studio Program in 0.2 cm distance. This allowed me to increase the margin of the design and achieve this outline effect in the white cut out.

Then, I glued the white cut out in the patterned paper cut out. With some of the cut outs from the patterned paper that were loose, I added some 3d foam adhesive to create some dimension in my layout, and curled the ends of the cut outs giving it more movement.

I stitched around the circle and started to added some die cuts flowers and others embellishments. I used Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and an acrylic sun glasses from Thata Scrapbooking.

Then I used the new Hello Summer 2 to create a title in the middle of my page. I separated the cut file with the release compound path tool in my Studio Program and made two cuts from it. One of them I cut from an offset from a vellum paper and the other one, I cut the title from a stripe patterned paper.

Hope you enjoy and create beautiful projects with the new JustNick summer designs available in the store. Every week there are new cut files for you to be inspired by.

Have a wonderful week.


Summer State of Mind by Sophie Delorme July 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today to share a colorful summer layout !

 

 

I used the Wavy Background cut file as a stencil !

 

 

I cut it and put it on a thick white cardstock. I used yellow, red and blue Distress Oxide inks and applied them with my ink blending tool on the cut file.

 

I removed the cut file, and added a little bit of water on the background to water down  the inks and add colorful splatters.

 

 

I used the beautiful Echo Park Paper “A Slice of Summer” collection for this page.

 

I centered two photos of my little Sabrina on my background, adding tissue papers and adhesive foam behind them.

 

I created a floral cluster on the bottom right corner of the photos, and put a chipboard sticker on the top left.

 

 

I used a piece of patterned paper for my title, that I cut and stitched on a piece of velum and centered it above the two photos.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

As the finishing touch, I scattered beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels around the page.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy of how it turned out ! This was seriously easy to create ! Why don’t you try using a cut file as a stencil for your next layout ?

 

Thank you for stopping by,

 

I will see you again soon !

Wonderful | Sheena Rowlands June 23, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone x

Sheena here again sharing a new 12x12 layout with you featuring another one of Just Nick Studio's fabulous cut files.

Wonderful.

I used the Floral Swag 3 cut file which I enlarged to fill a 12 x12 mat and cut it from white cardstock.

Using both vellum for the flowers and patterned paper for the leaves, I backed the cut file. Using variegated pink floss I hand sewed 5 french knots to the centre of all the solid flowers adding texture. Foam pads were added to the back of the cut file to add depth.

I used a Paige Evans patterned paper as my base allowing the photo, taken at a local botanical gardens, and the cut file to pop.

The title was cut from another patterned paper along with a few butterflies to finish.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out this Floral Swag 3 cut file and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.


Mmmmm Ice Cream | Majken Pullin June 22, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone and welcome to the JustNick Studio blog!  Majken here with you today, and I'm sharing a "sweet" layout.  Let's take a look:

Does this lovely cut file make you hungry for some ice cream?  I cut out the Ice Cream cut file in white textured cardstock and then backed it with shimmer brown cardstock and patterned paper. Dark brown enamel dots for chocolate chips...yum!  And I machine stitched around the ice cream and throughout the cone for some fun texture.

For the title of my sweet layout, I used the very cute Doodle Alphabet and cut out all my letters with white textured cardstock as well.  I backed the first part of the title with the lighter part of an ombre patterned paper.

And then I backed the remaining part of my title with the darker part of the ombre patterned paper.

I created some tags for my photos and tied them together for a very mini-tag album!

I put journaling in the center of my title and added a bow and some other little touches.

Here are the cut files I used!

Ice Cream

Doodle Alpha

I hope this inspires you to create some fun elements for your past and future ice cream outings!  Please share with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio tag.  We would love to see them!

Have a great week.

Magic ! | Sophie Delorme June 17, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing a 8,5” x 11” layout !

 

 

I rarely do this size of page ! I used the beautiful “Floral Burst Background” cut file.

 

 

I backed each petal with patterned papers from an exclusive Hip Kit Club kit from March 2021. I added adhesive foam behind it and placed it on the right side of my page.

 

 

I machine stitched around my white cardstock with yellow thread and backed the whole page with a soft blue patterned paper.

 

I printed my photo in black and white so that both my photo and the beautiful cut file would stand out.

 

I added a floral cluster with die cuts from the same kit on the bottom of the cut file, placed a few phrase stickers on the top left where I stamped the date, and handwrote my journaling.

 

Here are a few close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple and sweet !

 

I hope you can find some inspiration with this page today !

 

Until next time,

Hello | Majken Pullin June 9, 2021 07:00

Hello lovely crafty people, Majken here with you today as a returning design team member for JustNick Studio.  I'm so excited to be back with you for another year! 

Today I have a 12x12 layout to share with you celebrating my 21st anniversary with my husband last month.  We were over-the-moon to be going out for a dining experience at one of our favorite restaurants.  Take a look!

I first decided to use hearts from the Sentiments 1 cut file to layer tone-on-tone as my background and cut them on my Silhouette Cameo 4 in various sizes.

I chose a patterned paper to cut at an angle along the bottom for my title and journaling strips as well as a partial mat for my photo and butterflies!  I created an offset of the butterflies from Sentiments 1 in two sizes and then cut them multiple times so I could layer with different patterned papers.

I cut "hello" from Sentiments 1 for my title in patterned paper and a layer of chipboard to create dimension.

I used the scallop strip from Borders 1 to layer underneath my angled edge and sewed on my layout as well.

Here are the two cut files I used on my project today!

Sentiments 1

Borders 1

Thanks so much for joining me today on the blog!  Visit the JustNick store for a huge selection of great cut files for all your crafting, and join us on Instagram where you can share your projects with us too.

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share:

 

 

I used a beautiful cut file from the store named “Leafy Floral”:

 

 

As you can see it is a background cut file but I decided to use it in pieces.

 

I started my layout with a white cardstock as my base. I applied a little bit of aqua watercolor on it. Then, I teared three strips of patterned papers from the lovely Carta Bella Paper “Oh Happy Day” collection to create 3 horizontal lines, on which I did a zig zag stitch with white thread.

 

 

I used a 3x4” card for my journaling that I placed between the two black and white photos of me and my sweet Sabrina.

 

 

At the base of the photos, I created a big floral cluster. That’s where I used numerous leaves that I cut out of the beautiful cut file. I adhered only the base of them to create more dimension. I love that the watercolor background shows softly behind the leaves.

 

 

I added my title and scattered some Nuvo Drops around the page as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I like the result!

 

Don’t hesitate to cut into your cut files or modify them to fit with your design.

 

I hope this has give you new ideas to try!

 

Thank you for stopping by, I wish you a great crafty day!

Sweet Bloom | Sophie Delorme May 28, 2021 07:00

Hey JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful Butterfly Border cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white textured cardstock with my cutting machine. I separated it in two parts; the top three butterflies are attached together as well as the bottom two.

 

I used a beautiful Mintay Paper collection named “Beauty in Bloom” on this page. I backed each butterfly with papers from this collection.

 

I traced a smaller butterfly by hand on velum, cut it and placed it on each cut file butterfly. It adds dimension in a very soft way. I also hand stitched on the body of each butterfly and created a little embroidery floss bow.

 

 

For my background, I added a few touches of pastel watercolors.

 

I created my title with some Pinkfresh Studio alphabet dies.

 

 

I embellished around my photo with flowers cut out of a few patterned papers and handwrote my journaling on a journaling card.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a soft and delicate page! This cut file is so perfect! It looks like the butterflies are flying away!

 

I hope you felt inspire today! Thank you for stopping by!

Hello and welcome crafty friends!  Majken here with you today sharing a new layout with the lovely Spring Swag cut file.  Here is my project:

Today I kept my project simple.  I started with a soft pink patterned paper as my base, and then I spritzed a few drops around the layout. 

While it dried, I cut the Spring Swag cut file out of textured white cardstock.  I decided not to back the cut file, but for some dimension, I popped up the edges while adhering the middle of the cut file directly to the background. I put a dot of adhesive to stick the vellum bird ephemera to the leaf.

I knew I wanted to tuck my photo above the center of the swag.  I layered it with some other patterned paper and ephemera first.

I used the Love ephemera to create a title area. And I love that sweet bow that frames the photo area.

A few sequins, stickers, and ephemera completed my project!

The Spring Swag cut file is gorgeous!

Spring Swag

Head over to grab your spring cut files today, and don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio!

I hope you are having a good spring.

Hey friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used the beautiful Spring Stained Glass cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white cardstock. I backed the flowers with Paige Evan’s new collection “Wonders” and the rest of the cut file with velum. I made a chain stitch all around it, added adhesive foam behind it and centered it on a beautiful Wonders patterned paper that couldn’t be more perfect for this circular design !

 

 

I printed my photo in black and white to make it stand out around all those springy colors, with a layer of tissue paper behind it.

 

I embellished around the photo with floral and leaves die cuts from the same collection, added a chipboard sticker for my title and a few Pinkfresh Studio crystals mix.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! This cut file is a must have ! Perfect for any spring themed layouts !

Happy As Can Be | Majken Pullin May 5, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a pretty background cut file released just last month called Floral Filigree Background. It is in the style of a flower and reminds me of tile or a quilt, and you can do a lot with it! Here is my layout:

I enlarged the cut file to about 11"x11" and cut it from white textured cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.  I chose several colors on the B sides of some patterned papers from American Crafts Paige Evans Wonders collection. And then I randomly backed each of the filigrees.

Once each filigree had patterned paper behind it, I adhered it to another sheet of white textured cardstock, and the layout came together quickly and easily.

I layered my photo with some patterned paper and ephemera.

I used some stickers for the centers of many of the filigrees.

And I used one of the tags as the title for my layout.

You could also use the cut file as a template for inking or other media.  I know it would look amazing! 

Here is a look at the Floral Filigree Background cut file:

And there are many other beautiful background cut files to choose from for all sorts of different projects, so definitely check them out in the JustNick Studio store.  And don't forget to share your projects with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio.

Thanks for stopping by today...have a wonderful week!

Dream Big by Sophie Delorme April 28, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

It’s Spring time and it is the theme of my page !

 

I used the new Spring Floral 1 and Spring Floral 2 cut files.

 

 

 

I decided to place them as three flower bouquets hanging down above my photo.

 

I cut them on white cardstock and backed them with the beautiful Echo Park Paper collection named “Salutation no.1”

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a little green and blue mixed media background beneath were I planned to place my photos. I also added many tiny colored splatters that matched my color scheme.

 

I printed my photos in black and white. They are cute moments between Sabrina and our dog Fiona playing together during the pandemic lockdown. I added adhesive foam behind my photo and a strip of blue patterned paper to ground it.

 

 

I created a little floral cluster on the right lower side of the photos as a recall from the bouquets, and added a journaling card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I decorated the three bouquets with flowers and leaves die cuts from the same Echo Park collection and punched three bows out of patterned paper placed at the base of each bouquet.

 

 

Finally, I scattered many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Crystal Mix as the final touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I looove this Spring feel so much !

 

I hope you felt inspired by this layout and those gorgeous cut files ! Check out the store for many more beautiful cut file ideas and inspiration !

Hello Spring | Majken Pullin April 21, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello cut file fans - so glad you could visit the JustNick Studio blog today!  Majken here with you to share a layout using two cut files for a Spring-themed project. My layout today features a pretty photo of a rainbow!

How sweet is this camera cut file from the Stay Focused set? I cut it out using white textured cardstock and backed it with several patterned papers from Pink Paislee while I let the watercolor drops on the background white textured cardstock dry.

I fussycut several flowers to sprinkle on top of the cut file too for additional dimension and texture.

I wanted to use the "spring" Thicker in the title, so I combined it with the "hello" from Hello Spring:

Some stickers and enamel dots complete the layout!

Here are the cut files I used in today's project:

I hope your spring is a happy one! Please do share your spring projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us and tag us with #justnickstudio so we can see! You can see many spring cut files here.

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Kitty | Majken Pullin April 8, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you today to share a sweet layout using the JustNick Studio Floral Cluster 1 cut file. This is our sweet kitty, Oreo:

I began this layout by cutting out the Floral Cluster 1 from white textured cardstock. I decided that instead of backing the flowers with patterned paper, that I would put subtle brushes of ink behind them for a soft look.

I took matching Distress Oxide inks and brushed in circles lightly underneath the cut file.  The larger flowers have Fired Brick and the smaller flowers have Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky, while the leaves have Evergreen Bough.  When I was done, I spritzed a few drops of the ink mixed with water and let it dry.  Then I spritzed water on the ink and patted it with a paper towel. Finally, I spritzed some shimmer ink on top.

I layered some patterned paper strips from Cocoa Vanilla Studio along the left edge of the layout.  Next, I adhered the photo under the cut file slightly and wrote some journal strips.  I completed the layout with some sequins and a few pieces of ephemera, including that adorable corduroy heart. I combined two sets of alphabet stickers for my title.

Here is the Floral Cluster 1 cut file:

Floral Cluster 1

Inks are a great way to create a soft background behind cut files, and I hope this inspires you to try this technique!  If you do, be sure to share it with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.

Thanks for visiting today...have a great day!

Stay Amazing by Sophie Delorme April 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

I used the beautiful “Stay Focused” cut file that I cut on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I backed this cute camera with aqua cardstock and some patterned papers printed at home from a Felicity Jane digital collection.

 

I made sure to pop some elements of the cut file, like the lens of the camera, with adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

 

Before adhering it to my page, I created a light watercolor background and added a few splatters of watercolor paint in colors that matched my paper collection. My photo was quite neutral so I printed it in color. I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and a teared piece of pink polka dot paper that I tucked under the photo, on its right side.

 

I also fussy cut two white frames from the same Felicity Jane collection and placed them on the left side of the photo.

 

My title is a mix of the same “Stay Focused” cut file (for the word “Stay”) and a Simple Stories Cardstock sticker for the word “Amazing”. As you noticed, I did a little bit of doodling with a fine tip black pen on the word stay and on the camera.

 

 

Finally, I simply added a few fussy cut flowers and leaves around the photo and cut file, handwrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you today and that you like this page !

 

Visit the Just Nick Studio shop to see all the amazing choices of cut files. It’s a great way to get you started and inspired to create a page !

 

Thank you for stopping by today, and happy crafting !

Epic Dude | Majken Pullin March 31, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to wrap up the JustNick Studio Masculine weeks.  Today I'm sharing a layout with a fun, new background cut file called Optical Stencil which I think is perfect to use with black textured cardstock and this Simple Stories Bro & Co collection.  Let's look!

 Epic Dude

Bold colors pop with black and this fantastic background cut file. After cutting out the Optical Stencil background, I backed the triangles with different patterned papers, and then overlayed that on top of the blue-green patterned paper with the tiny triangles.

After layering the photo with more patterned paper and some stickers, the layout came together very quickly!  I put the photo area over five 2x2" squares cut from another piece of papers.  And then I used foam stickers for my title over the photo area.

I wrote some journaling strips to document my son's cuteness. :)

Here's another close-up.

And here is a look at the Optical Stencil cut file:

Optical Stencil

I hope you enjoyed all our masculine projects the last ten days and you are inspired to grab a few to create with!  Don't forget to share your crafty projects using JustNick Studio cut files with us on Instragram using #justnickstudio.

Be safe!

Love You | Heart to Heart cut file | Sophie Delorme March 24, 2021 07:00

Hello !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

My assignment this week was to create a more masculine layout.

 

 

I used the “Heart to Heart” background 2 cut file for my design and a sweet photo of my teenager holding our dog.

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock for my background and played with Shimmerz paints and watercolors to add some blue mixed media where I planned to put the cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and backed the hearts with different patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio “Be You” collection. I also hand stitched around a few hearts with blue embroidery floss.

 

 

I added adhesive foam to the back of the entire cut file before adhering it to the page. I also added tissue paper, adhesive foam and a chipboard frame to my photo.

 

I teared two strips of patterned paper that I put on the bottom of the page to ground the whole design.

 

I added my title, fussy cut leaves out of patterned paper and a few other embellishments and hand wrote my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you with this page today. There are so many options of cut files in the Just Nick Studio store and many of them can be used for more masculine pages.

 

Thank you for passing by today and happy creating !

 

Sophie xx

 

 


Dream My Little Angel | Sophie Delorme March 12, 2021 07:00

Hello Crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used the Fall Foliage 2 cut file for this page.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock as my base, and applied an Inklingz from Shimmerz Paints using the packaging technique where I planned to put my cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and placed it to create 2/3 of a wreath on the left side of my page.

 

I backed the leaves of the cut file with the beautiful Felicity Jane digital collection named Hanna. I put adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. I love the subtle dimension it creates, and the soft effect of white on white. Perfect for a winter page !

 

 

Then, I backed my photo with tissue paper, patterned paper and adhesive foam, and I fussy cut plenty of floral ephemeras from the same Felicity Jane collection to embellish my page.

 

 

My title is a mix of Thickers and stickers from my stash.

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

 

This layout came together in no time at all ! Using a big cut file really dictates the design of the page and makes it a very easy process !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I inspired you with this page today,

 

Thank you for passing by !

Adorable | Majken Pullin March 10, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you today on this almost-spring day.  Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you using the brand new Floral Banner cut file.  Let's take a look.

I sprinkled a little blue watercolor spatters onto my background paper.  While that dried, I cut the banner from white textured cardstock and then backed the banner and the flowers with patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I wanted to additional dimension for the layout, so I used a chipboard title on top of the pretty banner.  I tucked the photo under the banner slightly after layering some matching patterned paper underneath it.

I also love the butterflies, so I fussycut a few!

I added some ephemera and enamel dots.

Here is the gorgeous new cut file I used for this scrapbook layout.

Floral Banner

You can use this pretty banner for so many projects!

I hope you have a great week.

Let your light shine | Anna Blades March 2, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you with a new layout featuring two beautiful Nicole’s designs. For today’s project I decided to create a soft and bright layout using two different cut files: Let your light shine and Fancy florals (coming soon).

Here are the cut files that I used:

I cut the title from white cardstock and use foam dots to give it more dimension. I love how the shadows make it stand out. Also, I used a gold metallic pen to highlight some parts of the letters. As you can see, my picture fits perfectly between the L and the H.

Then, I cut one of the fancy florals two times from white cardstock. And I backed it with vellum to add a soft touch. I placed one below the title and the other one in the upper right corner of the photo, on top of some layers.

Finally, I scattered a lot of gold stars and enamel dots around the design. I think it looks a little bit magical.  The idea of using this title was because of the lightbulb curtain behind my girls.  

To create the layout, I used Felicity Jane papers and embellishments. The enamel dots are from Lora Bailora.

I love how it turned out! Now is hanging on the wall of my child’s bedroom. Thank you so much for stopping by today.

See you soon with a new layout and amazing cut files!


Sunshine Memories | Majken Pullin February 24, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello everyone!  Majken here with you again today, and I'm sharing a spring layout because that's what I'm dreaming of now!  I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the Floral Swag 3 cut file, and it is just lovely.  Here is the full layout:

Sunshine Memories

After I cut out Floral Swag 3 from white textured cardstock, I chose to back it with Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream - the colors are so dreamy and sweet!

I chose the watercolor background paper for a soft background for Floral Swag 3, and I used 3D foam tape to pop up the backed cut file so that I could layer some floral ephemera behind it and on top of it for dimension.

I used typed journaling strips for my journaling.

For my title, I used some Thickers and some script alpha from Pinkfresh Studio.

And for a pop of color, I had to use one of those lovely puffy corduroy hearts!

Here's a look at the cut file used on my layout today:

JustNick Studio has a lot of gorgeous floral swag cut files to choose from! When you use one on your crafty project, don't forget to tag us on Instagram #justnickstudio.

Forever Happy | Winter Florals | Sophie Delorme February 15, 2021 07:00

Hello all !

 

It’s Sophie here and I have another layout to share !

 

 

This time I used the gorgeous Winter Florals cut file that was just released in January !

 

 

I created a page with a photo of my sweet daughter outside in the snow, and the Mintay collection “Winterland” was just perfect for that.

 

I used a woodgrain paper for my background and thought that cutting the cut file on white cardstock would stand out really well. I cut the woodgrain paper 10 x 12 inches to leave a space on the left of the page to add a blue paper strip and white cardstock.

 

I cut the Winter Florals a few times in different sizes with my cutting machine and left them completely white. No colouring, and no backing with patterned paper. Instead, I created a huge floral and leaves cluster on the bottom right corner of my photo. I made sure to adhere only the base of the cut files so that the leaves would be free of movement. It adds a lot of dimension to the page.

 

 

I added fussy cut leaves, winter flowers and poinsettias to that cluster, many of them with adhesive foam, and I love the overall result !

 

I splattered droplets of white acrylic paint to the background to mimic snow. My title is a combination of Pink Paislee stickers and exclusive foam stickers from Hip Kit Club.

 

Finally, I used a beautiful frame cut out of patterned paper from the same Mintay collection and used it to hand write my journaling, and decorated it with a lovely fussy cut bird.

 

 

I love the winter feel to that page ! Using cut files like this really doesn’t have to be complicated ! I didn’t alter them at all, just used them as they are ! But it really gives to the layout that little extra special addition that makes it a piece of art !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you were inspired by this cut file and my page today !

 

I’ll see you soon !

 

Sophie xx

 


Love You | Majken Pullin February 8, 2021 07:00

Hello lovely crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a Love / Hearts project with you as we get close to Valentine's Day.  I adore hearts - I used to doodle them all the time and fill up notebook pages of them!  I decided to borrow from that theme for my layout today!

I spattered watercolor over my background and set it aside to dry.  I opened and cut various sized hearts from three cut files, along with the "love you", from Love Language, Hearts Alive, and Hey You.  I cut them out from both white cardstock and red patterned paper.  I wasn't sure how I'd use all of them yet, but I am okay with having extra to stash away for the future!

I used "love you" as my title and machine stitched under the letters to emphasize them.  I stitched on my photo mat area as well, and then I used 3D foam tape to pop up the large red heart.

I sprinkled a few of the other hearts around my layout with enamel hearts, heart buttons, and heart stickers.

All those hearts sprinkled on the page just make me happy!

I had to force myself to stop.  :)

This Valentine's Day will be a quiet one, but I'm okay with that. Here are the fun cut files I used on my project today:

Love Language

Hearts Alive

Hey You

I hope you are inspired to spend some time with your significant other and then scrapbook something celebrating love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOVE YOU / Mandalla Heart / Sophie Delorme February 5, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !

She Is Magical | Majken Pullin January 28, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today with my second project for January.  I took one look at the new Heart Mandala cut file from JustNick Studio and fell in love!  It's just lovely.  Here is the full layout:

I got out some Prima Watercolors and put a few colors down on a white textured cardstock that I first layered with Gesso.

While that dried, I cut out the Heart Mandala from white textured cardstock and started backing the open areas with colorful patterned papers from Paige Evans' Horizon collection with American Crafts.

I used 3D foam tape to pop the backed cut file up from the mixed media background.  I layered some small, round stickers from the collection around the edges of the mandala.  Then I used Thickers and ephemera to create my title in the top left corner of my layout.

I put my photo left of center and included some ephemera around it as well.

Here's a look at this lovely cut file:

Heart Mandala

I hope you grab this new cut file to create with this weekend, and I hope my project has inspired you.  Enjoy your crafty time!

Enjoy The Moment | Sophie Delorme January 22, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I used two different cut files for this page. The first one is called “Rustic Winter Frame” and the second one, for my title, is called “Enjoy The Moment”.

 

 

 

I decided to enlarge quite a bit and cut the Rustic Winter Frame on white cardstock. I cut out the inner piece of the frame on watercolor paper, added a little bit of mixed media on my background with watercolors and, once dried, stitched the beautiful frame on the page. As you noticed I also backed the fine line around the frame with blue cardstock that matched my color scheme.

 

 

Then, I added dimensional foam to the back of my whole background before adhering it to a beautiful patterned paper from the Pinkfrech Studio collection named “Oh what Fun !”. I love how it brings depth to the frame and direct the attention to my photo.

 

I created a beautiful floral and leaves cluster on the lower left of the frame, where there already is a bunch of leaves from the cut file. I added ephemeras from the Pinkfresh Studio collection and also punched leaves out of colored cardstock.

 

 

I cut the cut file title on green cardstock and did an offset cut on white cardstock. I adhered the two of them together and added some Glossy Accents (from Ranger) on the green cardstock to make it shine.

 

 

Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops here and there around the page and hand wrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !  I hope you do too !

 

Thank you for stopping by today !

 

I will see you very soon !

Look Explore Grow | Majken Pullin January 12, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today as we share the new JustNick Studio triple layer cut files!  They add dimension and layers to any project.  Take a look at my scrapbook layout.

I sewed along the outside edge of all four sides of a piece of white textured cardstock and used Distress Oxide ink to watercolor the edges.

Next, I open the new Triple Layer Gothic Background cut file to cut the three different elements one at a time using white textured cardstock, a green and yellow patterned paper, then blue textured cardstock.  Then I adhered all 3 together and used 3D foam tape to lift the entire background.

I layered foam stickers and a fussycut butterfly on top of the popped up background for even more dimension!

I included my photos along the bottom with one of the foam stickers and another fussycut butterfly.

I print out and cut my journaling strips to put underneath my left two photos.

The triple layers of the cut file add interest to a project very quickly!  Here's a look at the cut file:

Take a look at all the new triple layer cut files to download today!  Share your projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio. 

Have a good day and week!

Winter Wonderland | Majken Pullin December 14, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here today to share a winter layout.  I had so much fun creating this project because snow is not something we get to see often here in south Texas!  But occasionally, we get lucky, and 2009 was one such year.  Here's my scrapbook layout:

Winter Wonderland with Snowman 2

I started by cutting out Snowman 2 from white textured cardstock.  I backed him with various patterned paper from Simple Stories Winter Wonderland collection from several years ago...it was perfect for my theme!

On a separate 11.5" x 11.5" piece of textured white cardstock, I lightly brushed an icy blue ink around the edges of where my snowman was going to "sit" on the paper.

And then I adhered my snowman on top of the inky ouline and added buttons to complete his face and body, using the cut file as my template.

Next I layered my photos with patterned paper, stickers, and ephemera and overlapped them with the snowman.

I spinkled some snowflake stickers and enamel dots, added my journaling strips, and then placed the white textured cardstock base over the brown patterned paper so that the left and top edges would show.  I hand-stitched a border using yellow embroidery thread for additional texture, too.

Here is the fun cut file used on today's project:

Snowman 2

Don't be afraid to back cut files in fun ways using patterned paper and more!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a safe and fun holiday season.

Happy - 12 Days of Giveaways | Majken Pullin December 1, 2020 07:00 4 Comments

12 Days of Giveaways

Hello, hello and welcome to December, friends!  Majken here with you today to kick off a very special time of year here at JustNick Studio...12 Days of Giveaways!  Read on to find out how to get a cut file for free!

I created a layout today with the beautiful, new Tree Trio 2.

Happy

The layout is simple but I've added a few extra touches for sparkle and texture.  First I enlarged the Tree Trio 2 trees to my desired size.  I also traced each to create the cut for the back of each. I then cut all 6 pieces out on my Cameo 4 using white textured cardstock.

Next, I created a 9" circle in Silhouette Studio, centered it, and cut it out from a new piece of 12"x12" white textured cardstock.  I used a blending brush to lightly apply Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink around the outside of the circle to create a subtle vignette effect. I put the star patterned paper behind the circle and then sewed along the outside edge of the circle.

To back my trees, I layered holographic dot aqua tulle over the white cardstock back and adhered behind the tree outline using glue dots.

I layered the trees with some fussycut trees and ephemera.

I fussycut some stars and adhered them with puffy stickers and enamel stars on the top of the layout with some phrase ephemera.  It's a simple layout with lots of texture and dimension!  Here's the new Tree Trio 2 cut file:

Hello friends !

 

It' Sophie with you today with a beautiful fall layout to share !

 

 

I used the gorgeous "Fall Leaf Swag 2" cut file recently released on the JustNick store, and the "Fall Leaves Outline" cut file as well:

 

 

 

I started my page by using a craft 12x12 cardstock as my base, applied white gesso in the centre and some Shimmerz paints to create a soft mixed media look. 

 

I also added white splatters with acrylic paint. 

 

I cut the cut files on white cardstock with my cutting machine. I backed each leaf with patterned papers from the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio fall collection called "Days of Splendor". As you might notice, I also used the inner pieces of some leaves, sticked them down on patterned paper and cut around them. 

 

I arranged the cut files around my photo in a diagonal line. I have added adhesive foam to the cut files before adhering them to the page. 

 

My photo is a family photo taken a few weeks ago on a beautiful fall sunny morning nearby where I live.The fall colors all around us were just magical !

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo as well.

 

Then, I created a few floral and leaf clusters with embellishments from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection around the photo and on the upper left of the page, and stitched that beautiful tab "Family Time" on the top of the page.

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and stamped the date, and that's a wrap up !!

 

 

These autumnal cut files are so versatile ! They can go for girly or boyish layouts and lead you easily to create your design. 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you for stopping by !

Hello cut file fans!  Majken here today to kick off the fall/thankful theme we will be focused on for the 2nd half of November.  My scrapbook layout today focuses on a larger photo of my husband and daughter - I'm so grateful for them!  Here is my layout:

I divided the layout so the bottom portion was about 60% with a patterned paper from Pink Paislee.

I wanted to have a repeating title and found the word "grateful" in two cut files: Grateful and Card Sentiments 4.  I liked them because one is a solid and one is an outline that I used to back with matching patterned papers.  And I used enamel letters to create the 3rd one on the top:

I used 3D foam tape to pop up the middle "grateful" for additional dimension.

The titles in the larger bottom section create the foundation for the larger 5" x 7" photo.  I created a dividing border between the top and bottom portions with a strip of patterned paper and pink rick rack.

I included a couple of journaling strips next to the middle "grateful".  I framed the photo with floral ephemera and stickers.

Here are the cut files used on today's project:

Remember to come back and see more fall and grateful themed projects this week and next.  Have a great week!
