Welcome to the 12 Days of Giveaways here at JustNick Studio.  I'm excited to be sharing Day 4 using the adorable new My GHOmies cut file!

I went with a vintage style pattern paper and then pulled in more coordinating colors from chipboard and solid cardstock.  I used a mix of pattern papers and solid cardstock to back each gnome.  Oh, these little guys are fun.  So many looks to give them.  Traditional Christmas colors in the bright red and green would be adorable too.

I used lots of leftovers from my stash that continued to bring in the GHOmie's woodland look.  The wood frame was from the 'winter time' and more Light Chipboard pieces that I trimmed away from it.  I loved how they gave the postcard feeling with the added 'winter time' there in the corner.  So that is what inspired my title.

My chipboard banner isn't Christmas colors, but it goes with the more vintage Christmas colors, and added to my cute gnomes.

I needed to add some journaling, so I made one decorative 3x4 from the same pattern paper used on the gnomes, and then a pre-made card, that I just typed onto and then added a foam sticker to coordinate with my colors.

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.

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

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!

LOVE YOU by SOPHIE DELORME November 23, 2021 07:00

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 !

 

Sophie xx

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

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

 

The cut file I chose was the Background 8.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

I love how this layout turned out! Hope you all like it and get inspired to create beautiful things! Be sure to stop by the JustNick store and check out the new cut files. Thanks for stopping by!

 

Have a lovely day!

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!

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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo on white cardstock.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

Here are some close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

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

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!


Thankful | Becki Adams October 11, 2021 08:00

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!! Hello, Becki here, to share with you a layout that I created using the Thankful cut file. 

This is such a fun, easy cut file to play with and it makes the PERFECT  large title. Instead of creating a traditional Thanksgiving layout with turkey and all the trimmings, I chose to create a gratitude layout. 

This cut file is cut out of white cardstock about 10.5 inches tall. I backed the cut file with patterned paper from the Bungalow Lane collection. 

On each side of the cut file, I adhered a 3x4 photo and a few embellishments. The journaling is on a tag tucked behind the photo in the upper right corner.

I'm so happy with how this project came together! If you'd like to see how this project came together, you can find a full process video HERE

I can't wait to see what you create with the Thankful cut file. Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends. 


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

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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!
 
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.

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

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!


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

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here with you today!

Are you enjoying summer? Are you planning something fun?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

 


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

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

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.

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 !

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!


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

Hello JustNick friends!

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Here are a few close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple and sweet !

 

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

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

Hello | Majken Pullin June 9, 2021 07:00

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sentiments 1

Borders 1

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

Have a great week!

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!


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

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

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

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

I layered my photo with some patterned paper and ephemera.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hey friends !

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I looove this Spring feel so much !

 

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

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

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 !

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

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

 Epic Dude

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

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

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

Here's another close-up.

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

Optical Stencil

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

Be safe!

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.

For the right side, I cut Feathers 4 to go along with the peacock theme and balance these pages.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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:

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

Hello all !

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

I’ll see you soon !

 

Sophie xx

 


Mandalla Heart | Patricia February 10, 2021 06:00

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.

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!
