Love This Changing Season | Patricia Roebuck November 30, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  We are headed into the Holiday season and today I have an 8.5x11 layout inspired by the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas using the new Winter Frame cut file.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Winter Frame, 8.5x11 Layout Patricia Roebuck

As soon as I saw the cut file, I knew I wanted to do an 8.5x11 layout, which was my favorite size of when I first started scrapbooking.  I chose to keep the frame neutral using a pale green pattern paper, backing the poinsettias with white cardstock.  Most of the ornaments I chose a pale pink color print to back them with, with one exception of a gold cardstock on one.  I did the same with the branches, except on most I chose a darker green to back them with, then chose a softer green to back for one of them.  This really gave me enough texture and color around the outside, that I could then add more color with my photos and detail cut out ornaments.

I added die cuts and puffy stickers to finish.  Very easy and so full of texture with this cut file.  I adhered just the outside of it to my background cardstock so that it appeared to have even more dimension.

So many ways you could use this frame.  You could go with a more bold look on your next project!

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

I used two cut files from the store: Piece of the Pie and Stems 5.

 

 

 

I cut the Piece of the Pie cut file on white cardstock and filled the inner pieces with two black and white photos and patterned papers from the beautiful Bungalow Lane collection from Paige Evans.

 

I did a chain stitch with different embroidery threads around each pieces, cut the white cardstock to an 11 ½ inches square and backed it with an orange cardstock.

 

 

Then, I created three floral clusters in a tone-on-tone manner on the yellow, orange and blue pieces, and added the beautiful Stems 5 cut files to them. I love that they stand out so well, cut in white, on the colorful clusters !

 

 

I cut my journaling into strips and placed them in the right lower piece of the pie.

 

 

My title comes from a mix of American Crafts and Pinfresh Studio stickers.

 

 

I added numerous Pinkfresh Studio Crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

 

 

How I love how it turned out !

 

This Piece of the Pie cut file is such a great start on a page ! And the cute stems are the perfect addition to floral and leaves clusters !

 

I hope that you felt inspired by my page today,

 

Have a great crafty day !

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


The Day I Wore Faux Leggings | Patricia Roebuck November 6, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  I have a 6x8 layout to share using the new Background 8 cut file.  I used the knife in the Silhouette Software, to only cut out 6x8 of the cut file to use as a stencil on my white cardstock background.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

I used Altenew Paste through the stencil, then when it was dry, I added watercoloring on top to emphasize the cut file design.  To add more texture to my layout, I backed it with woodgrain pattern paper, added paint dots, stamped my title in various inks and stamps, and added stitching.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

My favorite stitching I added were the French Knots.  I used twine so a bit thick, but you could use embroidery floss as well.  For my photo, I layered pattern paper, die cuts, chipboard, and puffy stickers to add texture with the layers, and direction with the leaves.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Background 8, 6x8 Layout, Patricia Roebuck

Thank you for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to try using paste, watercolors (or your water-based ink), and stitching with this Background 8 cut file!


Halloween Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez October 29, 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 three cut files and the Story Teller collection from Vicki Boutin.

 

The cut files I chose were: Happy Halloween 3, Spiderweb 2 and Halloween Icons 3.

 

I started my layout by cutting the cut files. I used white cardstock to cut the Happy Halloween 3 and the Spiderweb 2, and for the Halloween Icons 3, I used one of the papers from the collection.

 

Once I had cut all the cut files, I painted my background with the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons. Then, I backed the Spiderweb 2 cut file with vellum paper.

 

Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the Spiderwebs and the photo on top of them. Then, I added flowers I had fussy cut.

 

For my title I used the Halloween word from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file. To finish my layout I added the bats from the Halloween Icons 3 cut file, ephemera, stickers and puffy stickers.

 

 

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!

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 

 


Thankful For You Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez October 14, 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 Background 6 cut file.
 
I started my layout by painting a white cardstock with different tones of blue to make an ombre effect. Then, I used it to cut my cut file.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I didn’t want the cut file to be a square, so I teared it and glued it to a white cardstock. Then, I glued my photo on top and added flowers from the Bungalow Lane collection.
 
For my title I used a piece of ephemera and the thickers of the collection. To finish my layout, I added thickers, chipboard, epoxy and puffy stickers.
 
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!

Grateful | Patricia Roebuck October 12, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  So much to be thankful for this past year, and Thanksgiving time is definitely a way to express that with the beautiful Fall cut files JustNick has.  I used the Leaves 6 cut from white cardstock, backed with solid cardstock.  And then used the Give Thanks cut file digitally to create a background that I printed onto my pattern paper.  I use Photoshop Elements to change the color of it, make it smaller, and create the background.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck
JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

I created a circular cluster of the leaves, then added in my photos printed into circles to fit right in with the design.  I stapled the white cardstock cut leaves to the solid colored cardstock for a unique look and added texture.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

Before I adhered anything down, I penciled where my journaling would go, and sent through my typewriter.  Finished with beautiful Fall embellishments.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Leaves 6, Give Thanks, Patricia Roebuck

These leaves are gorgeous!  Use them as I did and maybe give creating a digital background a try if you are able to.  So many ways you can use JustNick files other than cutting them!


Fall | Patricia Roebuck October 1, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

Happy Fall to those living in the Northern Hemisphere!  I'm using the new Leafy Fall cut file in my Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Insert.  I decided two things first:  to use non-traditional Fall colors and to cut the file as is but trim it to stack.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see right there next to the 'A' where I trimmed this cut file.  I love it stacked like this on the left side.  I just added stamping, die cuts, and detail cutting around it.  I used a vibrant shade of violet cardstock and backed with mostly soft pattern papers.  To add a little more pop and the traditional 'fall,' I backed the leaves with a gold pattern paper.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I continued the detail cutting of pattern paper on the right side and incorporated a large photo under it.  I adhered the detail cut to vellum, added stamping and chipboard.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

You can see the photo peek through the vellum on top and you can lift it to see the full photo.

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Leafy Fall, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

This is such a great time to create, and I hope you grab this Leafy Fall cut file for your next project.  Please share if you do and tag @justnickstudio.


Love This Place | Sheena Rowlands September 21, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring a great background cut file from Just Nick Studio.

Love This Place.

Recently we got to spend an afternoon in the gardens of Buckingham Palace and I wanted to document our visit. The Everyday Words background cut file jumped out at me as it incorporated everything I thought about our visit.

Before cutting this cut file I used the off set feature to draw around each of the words on this background in black pen.

Using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio - These Days collection, I mounted the cut file over a patterned paper using foam to add dimension. I measured the gaps on the cut file and over the word YOU so I could print 5 small photos to fit over the cut file.

The layout was finished off with flowers, butterflies, stickers and leaves adding a little embellishment to the whole page.

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

Till next time x

 

 


Definitely Not Perfect Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez September 20, 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 Floral Pieces cut file. I also used the Rosette Background cut file, which is coming soon to the store.
 
To start my layout, I painted my background using the Rosette Background cut file as a stencil.
 
While my layout dried, I fussy cut some flowers. Once my background dried, I glued my photo, the flowers and the Floral Pieces cut file.
 
For my title I used one of the exclusive mixed die cuts from Hip Kit Club. To finish my layout I added stickers and adhesive crystals.
 
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!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards
Hello Friends!  I have been digging through my cards and found I need some specific for sympathy.  I am also in love with Slimline Cards, and the Floral Cluster 7 works as is on my card.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards
After trimming the card base, I used a Slimline card die to create a white cardstock panel, and then I used a smaller Slimline card die to cut out another panel using pattern paper.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

On both of the cards, I backed only the flowers, and on one I did the leaves as well.  To make the sentiment stand out more on the top card, I used black cardstock and embossed in gold.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Cards, Floral Cluster 7, Patricia Roebuck, Slimline Cards

For the bottom card, I used white cardstock and gold embossing.  I left the branches as is on both because it adds a nice neutral layer, keeping the flowers and the sentiment as the focus.  Hope you give this a try on your Slimline Cards!

As soon as I saw the new Boho Borders 1, I had to use them.  I used white cardstock to cut them out, and then used mostly solid or simple pattern papers to back them.  Trimmed them to fit my page.

JustNickStudios, JustNick, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Boho Borders 1, Floral Cluster 5, Patricia Roebuck

JustNickStudios, JustNick, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Boho Borders 1, Floral Cluster 5, Patricia Roebuck

I also used the new Floral Cluster 5 to layer over it.  I cut that from white cardstock as well, and then used grey paper to pack it.  These colors set the palette for my project, so I repeated those colors with a grid on the left including more photos and hidden journaling.

JustNickStudios, JustNick, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Boho Borders 1, Floral Cluster 5, Patricia Roebuck

These cut files were perfect for the topic of my project being all women from my work.  Keeping with the white cardstock and simple patterns to back the pieces really pulled both pages together while keeping focus on the photos.

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!

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 !

 

Sophie xx

 


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


Create Yourself Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez August 21, 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 Graphic Screen cut file.
 
I started my layout by painting the background. While my background dried, I fussy cut some flowers from the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut file on top of the mixed media, then I glued my photo and the flowers I had fussy cut.
 
For my title I used one of the ephemera pieces from the collection. To finish my layout, I added chipboard and puffy stickers.
 
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!

2 Scoops for Me | Patricia Roebuck August 18, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Fun Florals, Countdown, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Hi, JustNick Studio Friends!  The best inspiration is sometimes right on your desk.  I used the older Countdown numbers and new Fun Florals in my memory planner for my last post.  You can see that here.  

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Fun Florals, Countdown, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Fun Florals, Countdown, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

I took the leftover cardstock from cutting the countdown numbers to use as a stencil on my white cardstock background in grey ink.  Then I used a leftover cluster of the Fun Florals as a mask using a contrasting ink.  Next, I just used a leftover 2 with stickers and ephemera to create a cluster and title.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Fun Florals, Countdown, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

For the right side, I used a label stamp to create a border, added stickers, then sent through my typewriter to journal.  Just adhered everything in place to finish, including the Fun Floral I used as a mask under my photo.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are inspired to re-purpose your leftover cuts to use on your next project.


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

 

 

 

 


Memory Planner | Patricia Roebuck August 5, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  I'm back with another Memory Planner idea using the File Folders cut file.  You can see my first post here.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

I added another older cut file from November 2020 called Countdown.  This is perfect for adding a bold look to my planner.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

And then the last cut file is brand new for August 2021 called Fun Florals.  I cut several out from different pattern papers.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

To incorporate the File Folders in this Memory Planner spread, I used the chevron design and then cut a plain folder to layer under it in a bolder pattern paper to contrast with the top.  This was a busy week, and I tend to not take as many photos, so the File Folder cut file added a nice base, color, and texture for me to then add photos, Countdown Numbers, and Fun Florals around and on top.   

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

Then I went back with more embellishments, journaling, and stamping to finish this side.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

Just like with a layout, to help balance this spread, I added more Fun Florals using the same pattern papers.  That blue flower on the left helps to really anchor and bring focus, so I worked off of that by using the same color of label stickers for my journaling, Fun Florals, and stamping in blue.   

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, File Folders, Countdown, Fun Florals, Memory Planner, Patricia Roebuck

This is probably my most favorite current Memory Planner spread.  I just love the look of the chevron File Folder, the Countdown numbers, and the Fun Florals.  Hope you give these a try in your next project.  Mix pattern paper and textured, colored cardstock for your cut files from JustNick Studio!


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

Memory Planner | Patricia July 20, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  Today I'd like to share a spread in my memory planner from Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters Inserts using the new Sunshine and Live in the Moment cut files and an older one called File Folders.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I have a few more ideas of how to use these folders in my memory planner and may just give them a try and share more later.  For this project, after ungrouping the design and resizing the today folder, I duplicated, mirrored it and then weld it to make a folder.  I just had to make sure that 'today' was upside down on the bottom part of my cut file.  

I used just the 'sunshine' cut file on the left to fill up space over pattern paper.  This was in February and it was chilly for us.  Using the cut file with the puffy alphas and stickers helped take the place of just journaling that it was cold.  Makes it a little more cheerier especially since this was Valentine's week.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

For my folder on the right, I backed the 'today' to stand out with the same pattern paper from the left side, and then filled up the front with lots of embellishments and stamps to create a blocked or grid look.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Sunshine, File Folders, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters, Patricia Roebuck

I used more pattern paper on the inside and then used the 'live in the moment' cut file over it with more embellishments.  For the top, I printed a 4x6 photo, traced, trimmed and adhered.

Hello Friends!  I have a project in my Life Crafted album for Traveler's Notebook size that is all about my favorite summertime activity...swimming.  The new Hey Fishies and Good Vibes cut files are so perfect for summer!

I cut the Hey Fishies, just sizing them a little smaller first, with plain white cardstock.  Then I used a .01 brush and watercolors to add lines to my fishies.  I love this look because it goes with the design of my project, plus makes my fish very colorful!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Hey Fishies, Good Vibes, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

I trimmed about 1/4-1/2" strips of pattern paper to emphasize the horizontal line of the project.  Using the black cardstock background really helps my colorful fish and the Good Vibes cut file from yellow cardstock to pop.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Hey Fishies, Good Vibes, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

To add a little more color to pop on my background, I first used Photoshop Elements to make scallops of my photos to trim and adhere.  I used my photos to trace and cut out from cardstock.  The scallops also go with scales for fish!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Hey Fishies, Good Vibes, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

The last thing to add were enamel dots for bubbles and puffy stickers and hole reinforcers.  Grab these cut files for your next summertime project, would love to see what you do!

Hello Summer Layout | Yarelys Rodriguez July 7, 2021 07:00

Hey there JustNick friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Yarelys here to share with you a new layout.
 
For this layout I used the Hello Summer 2 and Sundial cut files, which will be in the store soon.
 
I cut three of the Sundial cut file and backed with the Color Study collection from Vicki Boutin. Then I paint my background and the Hello Summer cut file.
 
Now it’s time to build my layout! I glued the cut files and my photo, for this I used adhesive foam to give them dimension. Then I fussy cut some of the circles of the vellum paper from the Color Study collection and glued them. To finish my layout I added die-cuts and stickers.
 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 the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by.
 
Have a lovely day!

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 !

May Highlights | Patricia Roebuck June 24, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter

Hello Friends!  I have been looking at the Rainbow Ring cut file and wanting to use it in some way.  I first cut them out using white cardstock and then backed each one with a simple pattern paper from Elle's Studio.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter

The theme of my project was inspired by the tag that says May Highlights.  Between my rainbow colors of pattern paper backing the Rainbow Rings and the circle shape, I cut out the Spring Ring 2 from a stripped pattern paper to layer right over it to tie all my rings together. 

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter

I just tucked the tags and pattern paper around it in a whimsical design, then pulled out the May wood veneers from my Elle's Studio stash to reiterate the them.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter

My right side is filled with a collage of six photos on either side and then stamping, stickers, and journaling right down the middle to go along with the whimsical look on the left.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Rainbow Ring, Spring Ring 2, Patricia Roebuck, Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapter

I am really loving the look of the Rainbow Rings and so glad I finally used them.  I could se this with them in a straight line across the middle of my page with watercoloring above and below it as well.  I hope this inspires you to give them and the Spring Ring 2 a try on your next project!


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.


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!

A Whole New World | Patricia May 21, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Spring Florals 2, Spring Florals 3, Through the Looking Glass, Patricia Roebuck

Hello Friends!  I'm back to share another project in my Heidi Swapp scrapbooking insert using two brand new cut files, Through the Looking Glass and Spring Forals 3.  I also added Spring Florals 2.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Spring Florals 2, Spring Florals 3, Through the Looking Glass, Patricia Roebuck

I loved the look of this cut file as soon as I saw it.  I cut it from black cardstock.  I really wanted it to be a bold contrast with the pattern papers I backed it with.  I used similar colors to back the florals as well.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Spring Florals 2, Spring Florals 3, Through the Looking Glass, Patricia Roebuck

To add my journaling, I trimmed a piece of vellum strip, typed my journaling with typewriter, and then stapled it across the page.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Spring Florals 2, Spring Florals 3, Through the Looking Glass, Patricia Roebuck

I knew I wanted a big photo on the left and this one of my daughter videoing flying went so well with this.  I used more pattern paper on this side with similar colors to balance the right side, and then added stickers and embellishments directly to the photo.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Spring Florals 2, Spring Florals 3, Through the Looking Glass, Patricia Roebuck

I cut this and layered it on the right, but using it as is would also be just as amazing for your next project!

 


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 !

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

Hello JustNick friends!  I'm using the new Optical Illusion 2 in my Heidi Swapp scrapbook insert.  As soon as I saw this cut file, I had to use it.  At first I thought I would use it as a mask only, but I really wanted this cut file to pop.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

Starting with the larger part of the cut file, I backed with all of the same color of green pattern paper.  Then layered this over more pattern paper and trimmed it down to fit just on the left side.

 

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

I used foam alphabet stickers to fill some of the circles with what the story is about, and then used a foam black 'details' sticker right in the center.  I really wanted as much of this cut file to show and these foam stickers were perfect.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

I wanted a little more color on the right side, so I used the smaller part of the cut file that I trimmed as a stencil, moving it around to fill the page using green and pink ink.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

I pulled out my stash of bows to dot around as well as using more of the green pattern paper from the left to balance and then used flower die cuts under my photo.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut files, Cut Files, Optical Illusion 2, Patricia Roebuck

Amazing cut file!  Hope you give this a try in your next project!


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 !

Spring Decor | Patricia April 7, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, Basic Butterfly, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, DIY, Spring, Patricia Roebuck

Spring and Fall always have me wanting to get crafty, and I will pick up things at Target for the season to alter, even if I don't know yet what I will do with it.  This was one of those times as I saw this paper mache egg and thought how fun it would be to do something with.  I saw JustNick came out with this new Basic Butterfly cut file for this week and knew it would be perfect with my egg.

JustNick Studio, Basic Butterfly, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, DIY, Spring, Patricia Roebuck

Having the butterflies focused around the middle of the egg reminded me of the beautiful faberge eggs.  I picked spring pattern papers to cut several of the solid butterflies.  And for the detailed butterfly, I cut from plain white cardstock.  I backed the detailed butterfly with vellum in the center of the wings, and then added pattern paper to the outside of the wings and the body.  I layered and adhered this to the solid butterflies under it.  Then finished it with Tonic Nuvo Drops.

JustNick Studio, Basic Butterfly, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, DIY, Spring, Patricia Roebuck

I layered three of the solid butterflies on either side with pattern paper using foam adhesive.  I made pom poms in white yarn with the Clover pom pom maker to add texture to the body of the butterflies.

JustNick Studio, Basic Butterfly, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, DIY, Spring, Patricia Roebuck

To finish, I added more of the Tonic Nuvo drops to the egg itself.  Maybe it isn't a faberge egg, but I love how this looks on the mantle.

Hope you are inspired to maybe dabble in doing a DIY of your own for a fun spring decor project.  A banner would be super cute!  Have Fun!

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 !

Beautiful | Anna Blades March 19, 2021 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you sharing a new layout. Today, I’m using one of the new cut files called Floral Geode. It’s so beautiful and I think is very versatile too.

For my background I chose a gradient patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio, with peach and pink tones. Then, I made splatters with white and pink paint.  I cut the Floral Geode cut file from white cardstock because I wanted it to stand out against the pink background.

I fussy cut some flowers from another paper from the same collection and put them around the cut file to create a kind of wreath.

I placed my picture in the center of the page, inside the cut file, letting some of the flowers overlap on the photo.

For my title, I used a gold foil alphabet thicker with the word “beautiful”. Then, I added some die cuts and puffy stickers to embellish my page.

Finally, I scattered some enamel dots from Felicity Jane Studio around the wreath, emphasizing the paint splatters. I love the spring look of this layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like this page and it gives you some inspiration. Don’t forget to visit the store every week for new cut files!

See you!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Geode, Heidi Swapp Storyline, Patricia Roebuck

I love everything about this cut file, Floral Geode, I'm using today.  From the large hexagon, to the cluster of flowers!  I used this cut file in the Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbooking insert without resizing the cut file.  I just adhered it across both of my pages.  

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Geode

I tilted it a little bit taking advantage of the movement created with the lines from the hexagon.  Between the lines and the flowers tilted, they are all bringing attention to my main photo.  I used one pattern paper background that was a solid and used the two shades of that paper to create a little bit of an interest there.  I wanted the pattern paper I backed the flowers with to stand out but still be soft.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Geode, Heidi Swapp Storyline, Patricia Roebuck

Then I added some pre-made die cuts and stickers directly to my cut file, and added my title.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Geode, Heidi Swapp Storyline, Patricia Roebuck

The cut file is doing all the work of bringing attention to my main photo and smaller photo, all I did was add some journaling and embellishments, making sure to tuck another pre-made die cut under it to help balance the flowers on the left.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Geode, Heidi Swapp Storyline, Patricia Roebuck

Gorgeous cut file to use for Spring or add some bold colors to make it very rich!  


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 !

Another Glorious Day | Patricia March 4, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner, Feathers 4, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
Hello, Friends!  We have had freezing weather and now we are starting to enjoy some Spring weather, which makes me want to create projects with my favorite Spring and warmer weather memories.  The brand new Floral Banner is gorgeous. 
 JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner
Using a smaller size of the cut file was inspired by me wanting to back the banner part with a photo.  I went through my favorite Spring photos and came across this beautiful peacock I had never scrapbooked.  At first, I was going to use just one color photo, but I wanted the emphasis within the banner and his majestic head.  I printed an additional large photo but in black and white, and loved the effect!
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner, Freeflow Alpha, Feathers 4, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
I couldn't help but think of 'another glorious day' from Hocos Pocus.  So fitting for this beauty.  So I used foam alpha stickers at the top of the banner, slightly under it, and then used the Freeflow Alpha cut file to have 'glorious' stand out under him.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Free Flow Alpha
To finish this side of my traveler's notebook, I had to add gems to parts of his feathers.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner, Freeflow Alpha, Feathers 4, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
For the right side, I cut Feathers 4 to go along with the peacock theme and balance these pages.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Feathers 4
I also used the Floral banner on this side, but used the negative as a mask to create a tone on tone to my background with a pale gray ink.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner, Freeflow Alpha, Feathers 4, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
Added a little stamping, journaling and embellishments to finish.  So love how this came out and glad to have this beautifully peacock in all his glory in my album.
JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Floral Banner, Freeflow Alpha, Feathers 4, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
Have a photo like this that would work with this Floral Banner?  Give this technique a try.  Or use it as a large cut file for an amazing title!  Then use that negative and mask a beautiful background.  Have fun!

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!


Masculine Mesh | Patricia February 26, 2021 07:00

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, Masculine Mesh, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Hello!  Don't be fooled by the name of this new cut file, Masculine Mesh.  It can be used as a stencil, and definitely have a masculine feel to it with different pattern papers to cut it from or back it.  But today, I was inspired to use it asa plaid.  Going with the plaid theme, I used plaid gingham pattern paper under parts of it.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, Masculine Mesh

I used the same two pattern papers throughout, concentrating on the darker going horizontally within just three areas of the back of the cut file, and the lighter pattern paper going mostly vertically across two areas, and horizontally across a small section near my photo.  My idea was to bring the focus to the top left with the photo and then cluster embellishments and journaling in the areas I left blank on the right side.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, Masculine Mesh, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

I adhered the finished piece to my pages and then punched holes.  This look of using the cut file like this gives it a sweet Valentine or a Spring look to your project. But it is safe to say, I turned this Masculine Mesh into a very girly project about my daughter.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files, Masculine Mesh, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Hope you pick up the Masculine Mesh cut file in the shop and use it for your next project.  Would love to see!

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:

Floral Swag 3

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.

Have a wonderful day,

Mandalla Heart | Patricia February 10, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studios, JustNick Cut Files, Cut Files, Mandalla Heart, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  Today I'll be using one of my favorite shapes in my Traveler's Notebook album...Hearts!  And specifically this gorgeous cut file called Mandalla Heart 3.  I cut this out exactly as it opened using white cardstock.

JustNick Studios, Mandalla Heart, JustNick Studio Cut Files, Cut Files

With this intricate cut file, I wanted to keep it very light and beautiful.  To do that, I dug into my stash of pattern papers and pulled blushes, peaches, and pinks.  And I only backed the two outter parts of the file, keeping the rest with just the white.

I had my photo picked out, but I couldn't help but think of a box of chocolates with the photo and especially the cut file.  So I used the inside cut heart from the cut file, and punched squares, circles and scallops in the same pattern paper colors to fill my box of chocolates, having my daughter's photo be the largest and best piece!  I then added canvas heart stickers and my title with foam alphabets to add a tone on tone look with dimension.

I had to add journaling to this because just looking at the photo, I remembered exactly this Valentine's Day.  She had her new Moriah Elizabeth's Pickle Valentine sweatshirt, I braided her hair, and we added the clip flower to the end.  I used a tag that coordinated with my colors.  I added twine, a foam heart, and wood veneers to this special memory to finish.

Absolutely a gorgeous cut file and so inspiring to work with.  Hope you enjoy and happy creating!


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 !

 

Sophie xx

 


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:

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!

Majken

 


Triple Layer Background | Patricia January 26, 2021 06:00

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  JustNick has created an amazing new cut file that you will want to try right away.  It is the Triple Layer Graphic Background.  So easy to cut, all you have to do is decide how to use it and what colors to use!

I was so very tempted to create a 12x12 layout again with this, but I decided, I wanted to stay within the Traveler's Notebook size and show you how versatile this cut file can be.  I used all pattern papers to cut the three layers, selecting a darker one for the background, a lighter one for the second layer, and an ombre colored for the top layer.  After I cut it, I started trimming it to fit my pages.  I love the effect of this design, and decides to use some of the pieces I cut, and layer them over the design to create even more depth.  With it being the same pattern paper and the ombre on top, really adds an interesting look.

For my photos, I used hexagons dies to cut them into hexagon shapes to flow within the design.  And I did the same for my journaling spot, using vellum to type on and then die cut out to adhere.

To finish, all I did was add some die cuts and stickers!

Gorgeous cut file!  Hope you give this one a try in any size you create in.  You will LOVE it!!!
