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.

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.

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.

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.

Hope you grab these new cut files and use on your next project!


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

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

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!
 
Have a lovely day!

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

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.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Will be back with more inspiration using the File Folders and more cut files in my memory planner to share.


Good Vibes | Patricia Roebuck July 9, 2021 06:00

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

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!

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

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 !

 

Sophie xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 !

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.

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 !

 

Thank you for stopping by today, and happy crafting !

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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:

Heart Mandala

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

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

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Triple Layer Background, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

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!

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Triple Layer Background

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.  

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Triple Layer Background, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

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.

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Triple Layer Background, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

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

JustNick Studio, JustNick Cut Files, Triple Layer Background, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a good day and week!

Happy New Year | Patricia January 4, 2021 06:00

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!!  Ah, goodbye 2020 and hello 2021, right?!  Even though situations will not magically change, I am holding on to starting fresh and doing what I can to stay positive and especially healthy.  Today, I combine the 1 - 9 Outline Numbers and the Happy Words to documenting our New Year's Eve photo to bring in a fresh new year!

1-9 Outline, JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files

Happy Words, JustNick Studio, Cut Files, JustNick Cut Files

I cut 2, 2, and 1 from the 1 - 9 Outline from white cardstock vertically to use on the right side, and used the positive cut outs on this left side against a very fresh pattern paper background.

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

Keeping with the mindset of a fresh new start, I detail cut bright flowers from pattern paper to frame our New Year's Eve photo.  For my journaling, I used the watercolor paper I used underneath my cut 1 - 9 Outline on the right.

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

This right side, I kept mostly white to help the left pop more with the bright colors.  I used clear acetates in stars and circles for the '0.'  I backed this numbers with cardstock with watercolors.  Some peek through more than others and gives just enough color.  I used two more of the detail cut flowers from pattern paper to bring balance and more pop to this white background.  And the black acrylic 'happy' repeats the 'happy' I have cut from the white cardstock as well.  The 'happy' and the wood veneer numbers are along side the cut out numbers and word.

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck

You can see more of the cut through with this little patch of more concentrated watercoloring.  

JustNick Studio, 1-9 Outline, Happy Words, Traveler's Notebook, Patricia Roebuck
Love the style of the 1 - 9 Outline numbers!  So many ways to use them.  These are just two along with the word 'happy' from the Happy Words cut file.  Happy and healthy New Year to you all!!

Peace, Love, Joy | Patricia December 15, 2020 06:00

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  I'm sharing another entry in my Document December album that incorporates two new cut files, the Holly and the Peace Love Joy.  This entry is about our Christmas cards.  My first pages include the actual Christmas card.  These pages will use the same color theme.

I cut the Holly and the Peace Love Joy from black cardstock to really stand out.

The Love Peace Joy go so well with our card, but I felt like having them on the same pages was too much.  I wanted the cut file to stand on its on.  And since this is about getting cards stuffed and mailed, the cut file is the perfect title to this entry in my album.
JustNick Studio, Peace Love Joy, Cut File, Patricia Roebuck, Traveler's Notebook

I added woodgrain strips to the pattern paper to balance all the woodgrain from the card and previous page, then added the acetate stars to ground the cut files.  I grouped the title at the bottom, and then the holly at the top.

The right side is a full photo with embellishments and stamping added to it.  For the journaling, I trimmed a clear piece of acetate, typed my journaling and added a label behind it so it would stand out.

Love the title and holly in black for this entry!

12 Days of Giveaways | Noel TN | Patricia December 6, 2020 06:00 2 Comments

Welcome to 12 Days of Giveaways with Justnick Studio and team!  Nicole has designed amazing cut files for these 12 days, and I'm sharing a a project using the special TN (traveler's notebook) cut file called TN Noel.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I cut the cut file from pattern paper.  I backed the right side with textured white cardstock to keep a soft look and have my patterned branches show up.  For this left side, I had the idea of using this gorgeous evening photo from a recent trip to peek through the 'NOEL'.  I scored and stitched that cut file piece right on top of my photo, and then added embellishments to the front and inside of my photo.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I typed my journaling on a label to adhere to the inside of the cut file.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

I can't help but sing Noel while I created this.  The cut file, then the photo, and the song inspired me to use part of the song as a title over the branch part of the cut file using a mix of letters to both stand out and be appropriate for the holidays.  

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

Those branches were calling for ornament stickers.  I used them, enamel dots, die cuts, and woodgrain pattern paper to trim the left side of this cut file to balance more with the left to finish.

JustNick Studio, Cut Files, 12 Days of Giveaways, TN Noel

Gorgeous cut file and I love using a photo underneath!  This is an entry in my Document December, so perfect for documenting during this season.  No purchase necessary to grab this TN Noel cut file today and no code. Just add the correct cut file for the day into your cart to order for the discount to auto-apply. No refunds will be given. The design will still be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.  The free offer is only valid until midnight CST on December ENTER DAY AND YEAR at midnight CST.  Happy Creating!

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

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

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

I layered the trees with some fussycut trees and ephemera.

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

JustNick Studio, Borders 2, Floral Bundle

Hello Friends!  I'm back again to share a Fall and Thankful inspired project using colors you wouldn't think of for Fall, but are some of my favorites.  I'm using the Borders 2 and Floral Bundle for this project today.

I started by cutting out a few of the looped border and then used the negative piece as a stencil using a red/violet color and peach.  Two of my favorite colors to focus on from Fall.  After my background was created, I used a combination of the same red/violet ink and two shades of blue to get a bold look from the white cardstock I used to cut the Floral Bundle cut file.

Then I added stamping and embellishments to complement, focusing mostly on the same shades I already used, but then added that 'hello autumn' chipboard piece to give a bolder contrast.

This has been such an interesting year, and I had snapped this selfie of me at Whole Foods one evening, not knowing I was about to put in for a second job there later that week.  I made the photo large to add my typing onto, and then added another foam embellishment to balance with the right side.

Hope you are inspired to create a Fall/Thankful inspired project with a photo of yourself and documenting about your life right now.


Thankful for you | Anna Blades November 18, 2020 07:00

Hi Just Nick Friends!

Anna here with you today. I’ve created this thankful layout using a picture of my husband and my two daughters. The colors of the photo didn’t match my layout, so I decided to print it in black and white.

First, I made some mixed media on a watercolor sheet with Lindy’s magicals, using peachy and gold tones. Also, I made some splatters with gold Color Shine mist. Finally, I made a very soft stamping with a background stamp, that’s also thank themed.

Then, I cut the Thankful cut file from white cardstock. I glued the outline piece flat on top of the background. The inner pieces have some texture because I embossed them with my Big Shot. I used foam squares to rise up all the letters and give dimension to the title. To finish the title, I added the words “for you” with this script black alphabet thickers.

With brown cardstock I cut some leaves using the Leaf Swag cut file and placed them around my photo. I think they give an autumnal look to the page.

Finally, to embellish the page, I stamped some butterflies with gold ink on vellum and added gold puffy hearts and a couple of die cuts.

I hope you like this page and give you some inspiration. Don’t forget to check out the Just Nick studio shop every week to find new designs!

See you soon!


Grateful Grateful Grateful | Majken Pullin November 16, 2020 07:00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  I was so inspired by the Floral Frame 2 to use it in the Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbooking Insert I'm using today.  

JustNick Studio, Floral Frame 2

I cut the cut file from white cardstock as is without changing the size.  But once it was cut, I turned the design and carefully cut in half trimming around the flowers to make a clean cut.

I backed all of the same flowers the same as well as the leaves, leaving the smaller flowers as is.  Adhering both of my sides to each side of page gave me a great place to add my title and journaling on the left.

I am a little partial to blue and green, so I love how this came out concentrating on my favorite colors as well as going perfectly with my title and story!

Hope this inspires you to use this frame as is to cut it out, but then use it in a different on your next project!


Picture Perfect by Sophie Delorme November 9, 2020 07:30

Hello everyone !

 

It's Sophie here and I am very happy to share this lovely layout with you today !

 

 

I used the beautiful Botanical Wreath that just arrived to the store in October.

 

 

I cut the wreath on my cutting machine and used only the 2/3 of it.

 

I started my page with a thick white cardstock, on which I added a bit of water-colour paint behind where I planned to put the wreath. I did little splatters of blue water-colour and some gold color shine as well.

 

I backed the delicate wreath with patterned papers from the beautiful Jen Hadfield collection named "The Avenue". I added some fussy cut leaves, flowers and chestnuts from the same collection.

 

 

I added adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. 

 

The photo is from me and my son, documenting how tall he his at 16 years old, and how time flies by.... 

 

My title is from a pocket life card, and I also created a label on which I stamped "Time Flies" with blue ink.

 

 

Finally, I created other leaves with an exclusive stamp set from Scrapbook and Cards Today to add to the floral clusters, and sticked down little golden puffy sticker leaves from Jen Hadfield.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !

 

Isn't this cut file just breathtakingly beautiful !??!

 

I hope I inspired you to get crafty today, thank you so much for passing by !

 

Sophie xx

 

 


Cozy Day | Majken Pullin November 3, 2020 07:00

Hello lovely, crafty friends!  Majken here, and I'm so glad you are visiting the JustNick Studio blog today.  Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout using a background cut file called "Doily Background".  Let's take a peek:

I started by cutting out the Doily Background from white textured cardstock so I could pair it with this gorgeous Simple Stories Cozy Days collection!  I layered the cut file on top of an 11" x 11" piece of white textured cardstock.

I wanted the simplicity of the tone on tone, and I love the effect!  I machine stitched around the edges of the white textured cardstock over the blue floral patterned paper.

I used several of the patterned papers to layer under the photo of my daughter.

I put my title and a few journaling strips over the cut file and sprinkled some chipboard hearts & flowers with enamel dots.

Here is the cut file I used today:
