Love | Majken Pullin May 21, 2019 07:00
Hello lovelies! Majken here with you today sharing a layout for our "Words" theme this back part of May. I'm using a large "love" for my title because May is my anniversary month with my husband. We've been married 19 years this month! <3
I was inspired by the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection colors, and I felt that the "love" title would pop using black cardstock and the black would emphasize the soft colors in the collection. I pulled this "love" from the Lots of Love 1 cut file.
The Henna Heart cut file looks gorgeous in black, too.
After I backed the flowers of the heart with the same paper, I sprinkled in some Dimensional Paper flower embellishments.
I cut a frame from the patterned vellum to give the layout that frame for balance, and I sprinkled a few sequins to keep the layout simple.
Definitely consider using black for your large word titles to help your titles stand out!

So glad you could join me today on the blog!

SPRING | Nathalie DeSousa April 11, 2019 07:00
Nathalie with you today, and it has been a long and cold winter here in Canada,and Spring is slowly showing up. So, instead of waiting around for Spring to finally catch up, i decided to pull a few memories from last year's season to create this page using a few of the beautiful JustNick Studio cut files.
I wanted something really light and airy for this layout, so i started with the Type It Alpha cut file to create the large vertical title. I welded the letters together, and cut them out of white cardstock.
To back the title, i chose to use the negative part of the cut out, and vellum for every other letter. A bit of foam adhesive helps to create the dimension on the letters, and make them stand out.
Once the background was set on the background, i laid the picture in place,and used the new Rolled Flower 1, Rolled Flower 2, and Rolled Flower 3 cut files and papers from the new Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine Spring Fling kit to create the flowers for this page.
I used a ball tool to curl the edges of the flowers a bit, and then used a pencil to help me start the rolling process for this flowers, and then took out the pencil and continue rolling them together. A bit of hot glue at the center of the flower holds the rolled flower together. I added a matching enamel dot to the center of the flower to hide the hot glue.
I glued the flowers around the picture and title of this page, but added a few leaves made from the Stems cut file from white cardstock. A few extra embellishments -all from the SCT Spring Fling kit- complete this page.
I hope this inspires you to jumpstart your Spring documenting. There are so many new cut files in the JustNick Studio shop that will help you bring a bit of Spring to your projects.

Celebrate Friends | Majken Pullin March 11, 2019 07:00
Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you today as we get closer to welcoming spring. I love background cut files - you can really do a lot with them. On the layout I'm sharing today, I backed some of the flowers in this background with different patterned paper, sewed along the cut file edges, and sewed over the centers to create different textures. Here's the full layout I created to celebrate a dear friendship:
I cut the Crazy Daisy Background from textured white cardstock and first thought I'd overlay it on another piece of white cardstock. Before I committed though, I tested it over a few patterned papers from Pinkfresh Studio, and I loved the way it looked over the dark blue paper with the subtle polka dots.
Before I adhered it though, I first cut various petals from a coordinating 6x6 paper pad to back a few of the flowers.
Once I had the flowers that I wanted filled in, I adhered it over the dark blue paper and sewed along some of the flowers in the cut file. I also sewed circles in the center of a few of the flowers that I didn't put patterned paper behind.
For my title, I used a fun alphabet cut file called Type It Font. To keep the white letters from blending too much with the Crazy Daisy Background cut file, I offset my letters slightly and cut them again using a green patterned paper that I used as a mat for the slightly smaller white letters that I cut.
Alphabet cut files are perfect for titles, and the great thing about them is you can cut them over and over in any paper, color, or size you want. You never run out of a letter either!
I finished the layout with some journaling (in the center of a flower!), buttons, brads, stickers, and ephemera.

I'm so grateful you stopped by the JustNick blog today, and I hope you're inspired to grab these background and alpha cut files (or two or three other ones!) to create with.
Have a great week!

You Have My Whole Entire Heart | Majken Pullin February 25, 2019 07:00
Hello cut file crafters! Majken here with you today, and I'm sharing another love-themed project with you using some fabulous new cut files. I created my previous layout in blues, but today I'm switching back to the more traditional love color: pinks! And I'm using Heidi Swapp's Hawthorne collection because I have all the heart eyes for ombre paper! Who's with me??
I cut my title first using textured white cardstock, sizing the "HEART" to go the length of my layout. I cut the smaller title words using pink paper, but I felt it "melted" into the page, so I cut it again using white cardstock to shadow the pink and help it pop off the page.
Instead of using the inside for the "A" and the "R", I cut a bunch of Hearts 4 out in various sizes and replaced those areas.
I also cut several of the Candy Hearts 2 using white cardstock and matted them with various matching papers so the words would show through nicely. And I matted my photo, tucking a couple of the hearts around it and using a third one in the top left corner.
A few added embellishments....and voila!
Now it's your turn! Go grab these and other love-ly cut files from the JustNick store so you can celebrate your love.
Have a great day!
Heart - Leslie Berner February 20, 2019 07:00
Hi scrappy friends! It's Leslie on the blog today. I used the cut file called My Heart.
I only use the word "Heart" and copied it unto my page 5 times, staggering them and then welding them together. This is what it looked like in my software.I used plain white smooth card stock.
I decided I wanted to do some backing. and backed three of the "Heart" words with patterned paper from the Paige Evans Whimsical collection. I backed the first, third and fifth word.
The rest went pretty quickly, I fussy cut one of the big floral clusters from one of the other patterned papers from the collections and nestled my photo between the cut file and the floral cluster.
Next, I scattered some of the enamel shapes around the layout and added some small chipboard pieces that fit into the little open spaces. Lastly I splattered some black Heidi Swapp color shine in the top right hand corner and added a roughly drawn border around the edge of the layout.
Here are some close ups.
Here is the final layout...

My Everything | Rachel Lowe February 13, 2019 07:00
Hello my scrappy friends (who LOVE cut files) I have a Valentine themed layout, but I chose a photo of me and my baby boy because love is love right! I have used two cut files on this layout, of course gorgeous Valentine themed cut files.
Firstly I cut the Heart Background cut file in white and kept it a 12x12 cut. I then cut the inner hearts in blue (release compound and move the hearts you want to use). I wanted to add some contrast to break up the white.
I then cut the You Are title sentiment using a striped and multi coloured paper so my title would be visually interesting.
I split my title to the top and then to the bottom of my photo, again for visual interest and to ensure your eye os drawn to the photo. My photo is attached with foam tape to create height on my layout.
Then it was just a matter of embellishing my layout, I think I have added every fav of mine when it comes to embellishments lol, pineapples, lamas, puffy hearts!!!
I love background cut files they really give your layout a wow factor and don't be afraid to use busy papers to cut titles as it adds so much visual interest and stops them from appearing flat.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to add these cut files to your library, they are ones you will use over and over I am sure.
Sweetheart | Marcia Dehn-Nix February 12, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today to share my LOVE layout inspiration with you. There are lots of awesome new cut files in the store and I could not wait to use them ... especially this Candy Heart Background. How cute is that! Perfect for scrapping your Valentine's Day pics. My mixed media background sets those hearts off nicely.
I love creating layers of papers and embellishments on my layouts. I actually used 5 cut files here! Here is a closer look at those fabulous hearts. Can you see the other cut files?
I placed one of the Dainty Doilies behind my photo. Isn't it gorgeous! Doilies are so great for layering! They add a nice feminine touch.
In the lower right hand corner I chose the scripty word 'Sweetheart' from the Love List digital cut file for my layout title. This cut file has lots of title options for your Love layouts. You could even mix and match these words with another cut file to create a totally new title option.
Here are the digital cut files I used today...
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day.

Remember Today | Majken Pullin January 18, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! Majken here with you today, and I experimented with Distress Oxide inks and one of the new background cut files released last week to create a pretty and colorful layout background to celebrate friends. Take a peek!
After creating a blended ink background and splattering with sprinkles of water, I let it dry completely, and then ran it through my Minc machine to help get it back to a flat paper so I could cut it.
I then cut out the new Pretty Paisley Floral Background from the inked background...it's just gorgeous!
Because of the detail on the background cut file, I kept the rest of the layout fairly simple. I created the title using the Everyday Words Background cut file. I cut three times to layer the letters together with glue so it would create a thicker title that would show nicely.
I also opted to back my photo with Doily 2, which is backed with blue patterned paper from Pink Paislee "Whimsical". You can see it peeking out.
And here are a couple more closeups of the Pretty Paisley Floral Background, which I sprinkled with a few star sequins (from Little Things by Lucy's Cards) and added a few puffy stickers, also from Pink Paislee "Whimsical".
Thank you so much for joining me today on the JustNick blog - go grab the cutfiles I shared with you today (or combine your own!) and get crafty. New designs are released weekly, so check back often. :)
Enjoy your weekend!!

On The Go | Monique Liedtke October 2, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique on the blog today, sharing my "Barcelona" layout with you. It's been almost 6 years that we visited this amazing city and the photos I've used on this layout have been lying on my desk for just as long! I had created a mini album for this vacation and these were my leftover photos, but as it was one of the most amazing city trips we did, I didn't want to part with them. And now I'm so glad I didn't as they were just perfect to use with the "Big Wheels" cut file!
This is the "Big Wheels" cut file; such an awesome, versatile cut file!
I also used the "Wish You Were Here" collection from Pretty Little Studio and my circle punches to create this page. Love how well the colors of Pretty Little Studio collection match my photos! And I love that I got to use so many different pieces of patterned paper in one layout!
And no, there were no lamas to be found in Barcelona, but I adored the die-cut and wanted to include at least part of him in my page!
When I started my layout I had square sized photos, but quickly decided that that size didn't work for a multiple photo layout with this cut file. Then I punched circles from my photos and now I totally love the result!
I added a few word stickers, word flags and die-cuts and a bit of machine stitching and I was done!
Thank you so much for stopping by our blog to take a peek at my project! Hope you like it. If you're looking for this or other circular cut files or any other cut file just hop over to the JustNick store!

Beautiful | Rachel Lowe September 25, 2018 07:00
Hello friends, today I have a Fall themed layout using this magnificent Mandalla Leaf!
I re sized the leaf to fit with my layout design and cut it in an ombre paper which creates a light/shade effect, as I chose not to paper back the cut file. You could of course paper back the leaf also.
I have used Photo Play Paper Gypsy Rose collection, which has perfect fall colours. It also matched perfectly with my photo of my daughter at the beach on a winters day.
My white card stock has been cut down to 10x10 inches as I wanted to add several paper borders. I then used some wet glue and added small dots of glue and attached to my white card stock, this allowed my leaf to lift (as not totally glued all over the back) and give the illusion of it floating.
I then foam taped my photo, 'beautiful' title, butterflies and floral blooms.
I have also tucked embellishments under my layers, this adds variation of heights to your layout, which when you have a large cut file ensures all elements stand out visually.
I chose to add two border papers, light and dark which again ensured my leaf really popped.
I added accents stickers and a banner feature to my layered page border which added visual interest to an otherwise flat page border.
There are lots of embellishments on this layout but as I have created clusters it does not look too busy.
The Mandalla Leaf really is the star of this layout, the detail of this cut file is just beautiful.
Thank you for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful week with a little time to create!

Thankful | Rachel Lowe August 21, 2018 07:00
Today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout with two cut files from the store.
And here is my layout.
I resized the Hearts a Flutter background cut file so it would fit my 8.5x11 inch layout. I cut it in white card stock and then added some blue paper behind several of the hearts for definition and to tie my color scheme together.
I have used Fancy Pants Design The Bright Side collection which os just gorgeous! I adore this photo of my son with his grandparents and wanted my layout to be soft and pretty. My title 'thankful' is about how lucky he is to have such wonderful and loving grandparents. When I attached my title, I slightly curved it and then glued down into place. I ensured my 'thankful' title was a contrast color so it did not get lost against the Hearts a Flutter background. I added a word sentiment from the die cut pack to finish my title off.
I paper layered my photo mat and attached my photo with foam tape. I added the floral bloom die cut and again with foam tape. I finished off adding a heart chipboard piece to the top of my photo, and a gorgeous die cut bird.
I created another element in the bottom corner of my layout, adding another die cut bird over a floral wreath, again I added both with foam tape for a 3D effect.
And as always I added a light splatter of black color shine.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you in some way. See you again soon!

Chill Out | Majken Pullin August 2, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick fans...it's Majken with you today to share a fun and summery layout! I used some fun alpha techniques to create my title, and a sun cut file for my journaling area. Let's take a look!
For the Outline Alpha, I first made each letter its own compound path, and then I overlapped the letters to create the words "Chill" and "Summer". I selected each word and welded the letters together so they'd maintain their outline. I filled in each letter with a different patterned paper and stitched around each letter. I love the texture that the stitching adds to cut files!
For the script alpha letters, I overlapped them to create cursive words, welded them together, and then cut each word "out" and "it's" three times to glue them together to create a more 3-dimensional look.
How fun is the sun from Sunny Days for journaling? I typed out my journaling after measuring the inside of my sun, printed it, then used a punch to cut it for my center.
Here's a quick look at the "Summer" with some sequins to add to the polka dot paper:
I hope this inspires you to create some fun titles using the JustNick alphas on your next project! I'm so glad you joined us on the blog today.

Adorable Keychains! | Morgan Langley June 26, 2018 07:00
Hey crafty friends! Today I am using the cut files a little bit different and incorporating these wooden beads I found at the Dollar Store to make these adorable keychains or charms or a mini album or scrapbook!
I used the cut files "Spring Doodle Flowers", "Cactus Jack", and some extra hearts from "Hearts 2" that I used in my last mini album project.
I tied a knot at the end of my embroidery floss, strung my beads, decorated my 1 1/2 end circle with the cut files, paper punched holes in the bottom and top of the circle to string it onto the floss, and then tied on the keychain loop or mini binder ring!
You're a Peach! Rachel Lowe June 18, 2018 07:00
Hello Justnick friends!
Today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout with a stunning background cut file.
I LOVE this Quatrefoil Background 2 cut file and it loses none of its effect re sizing it for a 8.5x11 inch layout!
I have used the lovely collection by onecanoetwo Twilight.
I re sized my cut file to 8.3x10.8 inches so I could have a small border of contrasting paper. I backed the cut file onto white card stock to provide a colour contrast.
Now it was time to pretty up my layout. I ensured I used darker coloured embellishments so they stood out against my background.
I created a vase of flowers using die cuts and arranging them as in my photo below. By adding the over sized word Blessed this is a lovely feature that draws the eye.
To frame my photo I have used the large floral cluster rom the die cut pack finished off with the super cute peach sticker.
I have foam taped many of the elements on my page to create some height and dimension to my layout.
I finished my layout off by creating a banner, heart feature which I added some machine stitching to. Finally I added some fussy cut moths from one of the papers and added NUVO drops to the centre of my flowers, on the leaves and peach.
The texture and visual impact a background cut file can create really adds a wow factor to your layout!
Thank you for stopping by and see you again soon.
Happy cutting and creating!
You Wonderful Thing - Cathy Martin June 16, 2018 07:00
Hi everyone! It's June, can you believe it? I know some kids are already out of school, but here we still have a little ways to go, but that doesn't mean I can't break out all the fun summer colors for a layout! For this one I decided to use the Love Background file. I cut it from a phrase patterned paper and then backed the hearts with various patterns. I also put some yellow ink on my background to make my cut file pop! I grabbed a ton of different washi tapes and created a border for my layout that helped ground the layout but also give it a ton of pop and pattern! There was already so much going on that I didn't have to do much in the way of embellishing. I love the little metal "love" paper clip tucked into the cut file as well. Just a little extra something to add a fun element! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!

Hello Summer | Jen McMurtrey June 5, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick friends!
With school letting out this week for my kids, it only seemed appropriate to do a project about summer. For this layout, I chose the Summer cut file and used some of my Crate Paper stash that I have been holding onto for far too long.
To begin, I isolated the "Summer" sentiment and cut it using the same flower patterned paper as the background. I then backed it with the wood grain paper and adhered it to the right side of the layout.
The puffy "hello" and chipboard border were added to complete the title.
I stuck with one photo and embellished using a bow, chipboard, die cuts, and stickers. The date was typed on a tag that I cut down to size.
Last were some paint splatter and puffy star stickers.
Thank you so much for visiting today. This fun file and many others are available in the JustNick Shop. Be sure to visit the blog daily for loads of inspiration from the design team.
Happy Girl - Cathy Martin May 25, 2018 08:13
Hi everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! So on my last blog post I used the Funky Floral Background and I cut it out of white card stock and created a stencil with it. Now since I used white card stock I didn't want to throw away the floral background, so I kept it, and this week I'm using it as my background file for my layout!
Since it was already sprayed in a rainbow of fun shimmery colors I didn't have too much work to do. I simply popped it up on foam and picked a funky watercolor inspired striped background. Since my last layout featured my daughter and I, I used a photo of my husband and daughter this time. I like the juxtaposition of using the same cut file twice to create layouts with different main subjects. Of course since there were so many bright fun colors being used it was easy to embellish the layout, and I had no issue using whatever icons I wanted!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look, and I hope I've inspired your creativity. As always, have an awesome day!
Friendship | Morgan Langley May 22, 2018 07:00
Hey guys! Today I am sharing a layout that is a little different for me! I love watercoloring, but I usually keep it simple with a few splatters here and there. For this one though I cut the different stems from "Stems 2,4, and 5" (three cut files) and water colored away! I did a rainbow of coloring and mixed shades and amounts of water to get the look I wanted. While the paint was still wet I did splatters of darker/lighter colors or just water drips to make the paint spread. I love the way it turned out and it was SO fun and care free!
I added super minimal embellishments with some corresponding sequins, flowers, little birds, ladybugs, snails, etc. Then I used mixed letter stickers to create my title!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Pick up these unique stem cut files yourself and see what you can create! It's always fun to try something new!
Let's Celebrate Mothers - Cathy Martin May 12, 2018 07:00
While I find it easy to take selfies, I find it can be a bit trickier to get a good picture of me with one of my little rugrats, so when I do get a chance I take what I can get! As much as I love documenting my children's moments, as well as my own, it always makes me smile when I can scrap a picture with us together. I want them to remember me, and it's important for us moms to sometimes get out from behind the camera and get in those pictures too!
For my layout I decided to cut out the Funky Floral Background cut file. I cut it out of white cardstock because I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, but after it was all cut out I decided to use it as a stencil. This is another favorite technique and since I cut it with white paper I can still use the cut file on another layout! I sprayed over it with several different color mists, creating a bit of a rainbow effect. I'm not much of a rainbow girl, but I was soooooo happy with the end result. In order to showcase as much of the background as possible I used a large acetate sheet as my title so that you can still see behind it! For having no ideas when I started I am thrilled with the result!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today!
Smile | Jen McMurtrey May 3, 2018 07:00
Hey JustNick friends! It's Jen today sharing a fun layout I created using one cut file, some white cardstock, and watercolors!
For this project, I used the Spring Fling Ring cut file with the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 collection (one of my favorites).
I began by cutting the Spring Fling Ring and then used Prima watercolors to paint the flowers in colors that match the embellishments from the MME collection. I then added watercolors on the background paper to match the flowers.
I adhered the dried cut file to my card stock with foam squares and then added die cuts, brads, enamel dots, and the mirrored title.
You guys! This layout took me no more than one hour!! I love how colorful it is and the file looks so pretty with the watercolors.
Thank you for stopping by today! If you love this cut file as much as I, stop by the JustNick shop and grab one for yourself!!

Hi you guys and welcome back to the blog!
Today it's my turn to share a new layout with you and I am totally in love with my project! I went back to the basics for this one, just to what I started with - cut files and simple backing!
I am totally crushing on the new Medallion cut file and used it for my project.
I cut it out of white cardstock at almost 12".
For my papers I decided to make a small dent in my hoarded Fancy Free stash.
I am still so loving this collection and it is still one of my all time favorites. It's so fresh and fun and just lovely!
I backed every open space of the cut file with a different pattern which was a little time consuming but so so worth it!
Then I grabbed my picture and started embellishing the entire page.
I kept my embellishments to a minimum to have the cut file plus all the colors and papers be the star of the scene!
It wouldn't be a Laureen layout without some spray mist, so I sprinkled some black Heidi Shine to finish off my layout.
I am totally going back to create these layouts more often! While scrapping I noticed how much I am missing these classic "old- school" cut file backing, playing with patterned paper layouts.
I hope you enjoyed todays post!
Have a great day,

Caravan Life | Under the Stars | Michelle Whorwood May 1, 2018 07:00
Here is my layout:
I really wanted to use this cut file and incorporate it with some recent pics of my girls at our caravan. The only issue was trying to fit the caravan file and the pics on the page! So I decided to include the photos within the caravan cut file itself and I loved how it turned out! I really wanted to use the stars and add them whimsically at the top of the page. I added in some stitching and left the strings flying in the wind so to speak.
Here is a close up:
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I hope I have inspired you to use photos within your cut files for an interesting but different take on your layouts.
Love Story | Nathalie DeSousa April 29, 2018 06:30
Let me in on a little secret, today is my 18th wedding anniversary. At first I was considering documenting one of our wedding pictures, but i thought that will not show the real us, so instead i picked one of out attempts at a decent selfie to tell the story of the past 18 years.
To create this page, I chose to use the title as the focal point of the page. So I chose to enlarge to fit pretty much 2/3 of the page.
I chose the "Love" design from the WORD 4 cut file, and sized it to fit across the entire page.
The "Story" design from the WORD 3 cut file was then welded under the last two letters of Love, and then sent to the machine to cut. I used a pair of scissors to trim the intersecting parts of the "L" and "V" from the O, and backed it with one of our latest selfies.
The rest of the letters were backed with papers from Fancy Pants Design's The Bright Side collection. Before gluing it to one of the papers of the collection, I added a bit of Vicki Boutin art crayon to the background, so that all the details of the cut out will show nicely.
To finish a few embellishments were added to the page, so that the picture is framed nicely with them. A few lines of journal complete the page.
I love how this turned out (I am a fan of large titles -one of my favorite designs!!), and how easy it was to put together using the beautiful and versatile JustNick Studio cut files.
Stop by the Just Nick Studio store to check these and the rest of their beautiful designs.
Have a lovely day!
2 Girls & 2 Trikes | Cathy Martin April 28, 2018 08:00
Hi everyone! I'm excited to be back with another layout for JustNick and this layout is very special to me because it's the first one I have done using pictures from my childhood of my sister and I. The picture isn't very good quality, since it's a scan from an original photo from the 80's. Now because the picture isn't the best quality, I had to keep it small, so I needed a big, fun, bold background to take up the rest of the space! I ended up choosing the Sunburst Circle background cut file, because it reminded me of bicycle tires. Since the picture was so vintage I decided to go full on vintage with my paper choices and embellishments. I absolutely adore the final layout, and I hope you like it too! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Remember this moment | Laureen Wagener April 27, 2018 09:00
Hi crafty friends,
it's Laureen with you today and I am very excited to be sharing my project I made for this week focusing on backgrounds!
I decided to scraplift myself for this page and love the outcome.
I used the Grandma's wallpaper background cut file! I have been wanting to use it for forever but never got around to it, so I finally decided to cut it out of some white cardstock for my project today.
I began by cutting a circle out of my white cardstock and then also cut a circular shape out of the cut file. I simply adhered that to the patterned paper I decided to use.
Because I was too lazy using glue in all tiny spots of the cut file I used my sewing machine to add a decorative edge around the circle plus secure the cut file in place.
After that was done I attached my photo onto the design and began embellishing the page.
I used the new beautiful Noteworthy collection by Elle's Studio for this layout.
I created small clusters around the circle and my title, that I've build using elements from Elle's Studio.
To finish off my page I added black Nuvo drops and blue spray mist and called it done.
I am loving the outcome and it was so much fun scraplifting an old layout of mine!
Have a great day,
