Hi there, Sheena here again,

For my last post for this year I decided I wanted to make a layout for the end of my scrapbook album and found 2 perfect Just Nick Studio cut files to help me document this.

2021.

The Countdown numbers cut file was perfect for adding the year in the centre of my layout.

  

Using 8 photos from throughout the year I placed them around the numbers. using Pinkfresh Studio The Best Day collection I matted all the photos.

Using the Labels 1 cut file and various coloured cardstock I cut journalling spots for each photo. I matted the label outline onto patterned paper I could journal on.

  

A little embellishment was added to each photo in co ordinating colours.

I hope this has provided some inspiration using these wonderful Just Nick Studio cut files and keep checking back in as new cut files are added regularly.

Till next time x


Merry Memories | Winter Florals 4 cut file | Sophie Delorme December 23, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s almost Christmas!!

 

Sophie with you today sharing a Christmassy layout of my daughter and our dog next to our Christmas tree!

 

 

I used the Winter Florals 4 cut file for this page, that I cut several times in different sizes on white textured cardstock.

 

 

I also used a beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Christmas collection from last year.

 

I centered my two black and white photos in a vertical line and built around them.

 

 

I teared a few big chunk of patterned papers on both sides of the page and clustered the cut files in the center, around my photos. I mounted the beautiful poinsettias on adhesive foam and a few of the branches as well.

 

 

I decorated the page with cardstock stickers and plenty of Pinkfresh Studio Crystal gems.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope this was inspiring for you!

 

I wish you a wonderful holiday season full of good times with your loved ones!

12 days of Giveaways - Day 12 | Our Christmas Traditions | Sheena Rowlands December 12, 2021 07:00 2 Comments

Hi there x

Sheena here again sharing with you my latest layout featuring todays lovely free festive cut file from Just Nick Studio for the 12 days of Giveaways.

Our Christmas Tradition.

Todays cut file is the Winter Florals 4  and was just the perfect cut file to help me record these past Christmas memories.

Using cardstock in shades of red and pink I cut the 3 florals outlines. I drew around them onto water colour paper before painting them in similar shades. When they were dry I cut them out and adhered them behind the floral outlines.

Using patterned Christmas paper as my base I added a pink panel which I machine stitched into place. My photo was mounted on this and the florals were adhered either side with some florals layered on top of others.

The fronds were cut from green cardstock and added around the florals. The title was added under the photo and strips of journalling too.

A final floral was added below the journalling to finish the page off.

This offer is only valid till midnight CST on December 12th 2021.

No purchase necessary. The correct cut file must be loaded in your cart in order for the discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the Just Nick Store for purchase after the discount expires.

Christmas Joy | 12 Days of Givaways !!! | Sophie Delorme December 11, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

 

Hello JustNick friends and welcome to day 11 of the JustNick 12 Days of Giveaways 2021!

 

Sophie here sharing my layout created with the free cut file of the day: Winter Floral Ring!

 

 

 

I cut it twice on white cardstock. I backed the berries and most of the leaves of the wreath with papers from the Felicity Jane Bella collection and machine stitched on the stems with white thread. I adhered the floral ring on a soft pink plain paper and cut the outside excess so that the pink paper would show only on the inside of the wreath.

 

 

I mounted everything on adhesive foam and placed it on the center of a 10 inches square thick white cardstock, which was stitched down on a 12x12 plaid black and white patterned paper.

 

I placed my black and white photo and a journaling card on the center of the wreath, added my title and a few beautiful embellishments around them.

 

 

I created a little cluster on the bottom right of the page with a paper strip, a label, a few hearts and a piece of the same Winter Floral Ring cut file mounted on adhesive foam.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and added a few black Nuvo Cristal drops as the finishing touch!

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hurry up and download that gorgeous cut file!

 

This offer is only valid until midnight CST on December 11, 2021.

Moments | Sheena Rowlands November 24, 2021 07:00

Hi there x

Sheena here again and I am sharing my latest 12x12 layout featuring a gorgeous Just Nick Studio cut file.

Moments.

 

When I saw this Divided Florals cut file, it immediately reminded me of a wedding bouquet so I printed off a few photos from my Brothers wedding in black and white, to scrap with it.

  

Using white cardstock I cut the file and backed the flowers with plain cardstock only using adhesive in the centres to give a more 3D look.

 

Using mainly Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection I set about adding my 3 small photos between the cut files which I adhered down using foam pads.

 

This Divided Florals cut file is so beautiful the page needed very little embellishment so I added a few layers behind the photos and see vellum leaf sprigs around the edges.

 

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store, there is a file for every occasion. Keep on checking back as new cut files are being added all the time.

Till next time x


Happiness & Sunshine | Majken Pullin November 19, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share a layout using the new Fall Split Florals.  Isn't it just lovely? 

How pretty is this cut file tone on tone?

I cut the cut file out using white textured cardstock and adhered it down just a little - I wanted some of the edges to pop up for dimension.

I machine stitched around the edge of the main square of white textured cardstock for additional texture.  I added a bit of ephemera and stickers for added interest - but just a few!  I used an ephemera strip to create the title.

Some enamel dots and tiny stickers finished the project.

Here is the beautiful cut file:

Thanks for stopping by the JustNick Studio blog today.  Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Fall | Sheena Rowlands November 13, 2021 07:00

Hi there x

Sheena here again and today I am sharing with you my latest 12 x12 layout featuring two autumnal Just Nick Studio cut files.

Autumn is my most favourite time of year and I just loved these cut files from the moment I saw them & I knew I wanted to use them with photos of my Son's dog Rafa.

Hello Fall.

Firstly I cute leaf border from white cardstock and backed it with coordinated patterned papers mainly from the Paige Evans Truly Grateful collection.

I also cut the Fall leaf cluster 3 and backed this with similar papers.

I tore my background paper on the diagonal before adhering it to the white cardstock. The filled leaf border cut file was added over the diagonal and the photos were slotted in behind it.

 

The fall leaf cluster was added on foam pads at the lower right side as a base for the layout title. As not to cover the beautiful cut files I embellished simply around them with a few chipboard and sticker flowers. The page was finished with a few splashes of ink and paint.

 

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous autumnal cut files available in the store, keep on checking back as new cut files are being added all the time.

Till next time x


Coffee Time Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez November 8, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout! To make this layout I used one cut file and the October Kits from Hip Kit Club.

 

The cut file I chose was the Background 8.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut file out of gray cardstock. Then, I painted my background. For this I used the Vicki Boutin art crayons.

 

Once the background dried, I glued the cut file and my photos with adhesive foam to create dimension. Then, I added three clusters of flowers.

 

For my title I used a piece of chipboard. To finish my layout, I added puffy stickers, chipboard stickers, wood veneer and enamel dots.

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired 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!

Fall Faves | Majken Pullin November 4, 2021 07:00 4 Comments

Hello, and happy Thursday crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a colorful fall scrapbook layout using two new cut files: Rustic Ring 2 and Fall Faves!  Let's take a look.

I love the Rustic Ring 2 cut file over the blue patterned paper! After I cut out the ring, I brushed light blue paint in a circle under the area of where the ring would sit. While it dried, I backed the ring with patterned paper.

I sewed several circles on top of the paint layer, and I layered flowers and leaves underneath and on top of the ring for some colorful dimension.

I adhered the title to the center.

Here are the two cut files I used for my layout today.

Halloween Snapchat | Sheena Rowlands October 27, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring lots of the great Halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Now my children are grown we don't tend to do so much at Halloween but I do love a photo filter & I have plenty of fun photos I can scrap. I had such fun making this scrapbook page & loved mixing up lots of different cut files together.

Halloween Snapchat.

 

After adding paint to my background cardstock I machine stitched some strips cut with the Boho Borders 1 cut file over the top.

The Spiderweb 2 cut file was perfect to create a base for both of my photos.

After using ephemera from Simple Stories Spooky Nights to embellish around my photos I cut ghosts from vellum using the Ghostly cut file and bats from cardstock using the Halloween Icons 3 cut file to add around the layout.

I finished the whole page off with my title in the centre back filling the word Halloween from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file.

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x 

 


Ready for Halloween! | Sophie Delorme October 25, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie with you today with an Halloween themed layout!

 

 

I used a Just Nick cut file named “Pretty Pumpkin” that was released just a few days ago!

 

 

I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo on white cardstock.

 

I used the beautiful Bella Blvd Sweet and Spooky collection for my page, and some elements from an older collection as well.

 

I cut a large strip of black and white stiped patterned paper that I placed at the bottom of the page, and created a little “mountain” with a more neutral patterned paper to make sure that my cut file would stand out well. My photo was taken at a pumpkin patch a few years ago.

 

I applied Distress Oxide Inks with a blending brush on the white cardstock and added numerous splatters. I let it dry completely.

 

I backed the pumpkin with orange patterned paper and decided to hand stitch around it with white embroidery floss. It gives a nice subtle addition to it. I mounted the cut file on adhesive foam before adhering it to the page.

 

 

I fussy cut leaves and small pumpkins to decorate around the cut file. I also punched 3 clouds, mounted them on adhesive foam and placed them in the “sky” above the photo.

 

 

I placed my title directly on the cut file and added beautiful Pinkfresh Studio crystal gems on the page as the finishing touch.

 

Here are some close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today! This cut file is just the cutest pumpkin ever!!

 

Thank you for stopping by, happy crafting, and happy Halloween!

Hello Fun | Majken Pullin October 18, 2021 07:00

Hello, and happy Monday cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share a colorful scrapbook layout using a couple of cut files: Fall Frame and Sentiments 1. Let's take a look!

I cut the Fall Frame and Hello from Sentiments 1 from textured black cardstock - it just makes those colors pop!

I cut a frame from the patterned paper from Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection and adhered it to white cardstock, and then I adhered the frame over that, leaving the leaves and stems alone for some dimension.

I created a frame for my photo and tucked it under the stems.

I cut Hello large to make a statement and finished my title with some Thickers.

Here is another close up:

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

HIKING MEMORIES by SOPHIE DELORME October 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used the “Delightful Doily” cut file quite new in the JustNick Studio store, the “Happy Words” cut file along with the Pinkfresh Studio collection “A Day of Splendor”.

 

 

 

I cut three Doilies on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed each of them with different patterned papers. I also created big paper brads with a tool from my stash from Imaginisce and put them in the center of two of the doilies.

 

 

I arranged the cut files in a horizontal row and put my black and white photo, a bit crooked, on the left side of my 12x12 layout, overlapping two of the doilies.

 

I used letter stickers for my title and the word “Memories” from the cut file “Happy Words” which was released a few months ago.

 

 

I did an offset cut and cut in on velum. I mounted the word on adhesive foam before placing it on top of my photo.

 

Then, I decorated along the doilies line and around the photo with different die cuts and frames, all coming from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling directly on the page and stamped the date.

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! Doilies can be used in so many ways! They can also be used as stencils with modeling paste of ink blending. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!

This is 7th Grade | Majken Pullin October 7, 2021 07:00

Hello, hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today to share a scrapbook layout using a new cut file called "Rosette Background". I also decided to create an 8 1/2" x 11" layout for this project to capture my son's first day of 7th grade.  Let's take a look!

I opened the Rosette Background cut file in my Silhouette Studio software and resized it to 10.5" x 10.5" and then sent it to cut on my Cameo with navy blue cardstock.  I punched 2" circles using a punch and then backed each large circle with those punches, trimming slightly if I didn't adhere it exactly behind the circle.

Originally I was going to use the full background, but I also wanted to use those large leaves from the Bungalow Lane collection, so I trimmed a wide strip of the background to use as a pattern along the right edge.

Next, I trimmed one of the cut apart 3x4 cards to put next to the photo of my son. And then I layered the leaves underneath to ground the photo and card, using 3D foam tape to pop up several leaves for dimension.

I used Thickers for the title, along with a navy alpha sticker set for the "This is" part.

I put a little embellishment cluster in the top right corner, but I really like the white space after that, so I left some of that white space to balance the layout.

Here is the cut file I used today:

You don't have to use the cut file as it is given - instead you can modify it using software or even a trimmer once it's already cut out!  Your imagination is the limit.  Join us on Instagram for more inspiration, and share your projects with us using #justnickstudio.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - enjoy the rest of your week! 


You are my Happy Place by Sophie Delorme September 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this autumnal layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful “Fantastic Fall Leaves” cut file for this page, along with the Felicity Jane “Julia” collection.

 

 

I created a mixed media background by applying watercolors in the shades of pink, yellow and green to match the color scheme of the collection.

 

I let it dry completely.

 

In the meantime, I cut many leaves from the cut file on white cardstock. I machine stitched in the center of many leaves with different colors of thread. I bent the edges and arranged them in clusters around my black and white photo.

 

 

I fussy cut a few florals from a patterned paper and placed them amongst the leaves. I made sure to adhere only the center of the leaves and flowers to create a lot of dimension.

 

 

I placed my title on the top left side of the photo. I handwrote my journaling on a pocket card and added a beautiful gingham tag next to it.

 

 

Finally, I added plenty of beautiful green crystal gems from Pinkfresh Studio as the finishing touch!

 

I took a ton of close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! I used the cut file as if I had numerous die cut embellishments! Simple but adorable!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today !

 

Thank you for stopping by, I will see you again soon !

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!

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!

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!

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:

Have a great summer!

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

Special Bond | Sophie Delorme June 3, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

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!

 

Sophie xx

 


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.

Happy ! by Sophie Delorme May 10, 2021 07:00

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:

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:

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!

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:
