ALWAYS REMEMBER TODAY | Nathalie DeSousa May 17, 2019 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout fit for our "word" challenge.  I love large titles, so this theme fits right up my alley, and with so many cut files available in the JustNick Studio store, this was just a dream to put together.

 


To start this page, i pulled together the Word 3, Love List and Word 2 cut files to create the title of the page, "ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS".   I simply pick a word of each file and weld them together so that they naturally create a space for the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

Once the words were welded, they were cut twice from white cardstock and once from a paper from the Pinkfresh Studio's Everyday Musings collection.   The white cut outs were glued together, and then the patterned paper cut out was attached to the white ones with a small offset so that it creates the illusion of dimension.

 

 

To add color to the background a bit of liquid watercolor (Pinkfresh Studio) was added so that it covered all the area where the word and picture would sit.  While the background dried, i pulled the new Butterfly cut file to cut a few outlines  and the shapes from white cardstock and patterned paper.

 

 

 

 

To assemble the page, first the title  was glued to the background, and then using a black fineliner  the outline was traced - this emphasizes the title-.  The butterflies were glued together, and then they were clustered on the layout based on the respective color in the background.

 

 

A few stickers and embellishments from the Everyday Musings collection were added around the layout.  A few lines of journal and gold ink splatters completes this page.

I hope this inspires you to check all the word files and other designs in the JustNick shop, the choices are infinite when it comes to mixing and matching designs to create a one-of-a-kind cut out for your project.

Sunshine + Happiness | Rachel Lowe March 28, 2019 07:00

Hi all Rachel here again to share another layout featuring two gorgeous Justnick Studio cut files!

How amazing is the Broken Butterfly cut file!

I have used MME Well Hello collection to create this layout.

I decided I would use two of the Broken Butterflies on my layout, cutting in black card stock and layering the smaller one slightly over the larger one. I used a large floral paper to back the butterflies wanting it to be bright and bold against the black.

So my photo didn't get lost against the busy patterned paper I used to back my butterflies, I matted it, added a floral bunch, washi tape and a phrase sentiment, so they framed my photo. My photo is also attached with foam tape to add height.

I embellished by adding a die cut bird in between the two butterflies and a flower die cut to the wing of the out butterfly.

I decided to serrate my title, adding Sunshine to the top and + Happiness at the bottom of my page, this balanced my layout.

I added a pretty flower die cut above Sunshine so your eye would be drawn there. I finished off with a splatter of black paint. I love how this layout turned out and the creative possibilities with these butterfly cut files are endless. 

Thank you for stopping by today and see you again soon.


You are | Niki Rowland March 27, 2019 07:00

Hey Just Nick fans! Niki here and I have something a bit different from me to share today.  I have used the very lovely 'You Are' cut file from the store. It's new and is completely gorgeous, perfect for documenting my lovely babies.
 
I cut the cut file out of thick Mixed Media style white card. I left it as a whole on the cutting mat. I then applied lots of mixed media paint. Once it was dry I peeled everything off the cutting mat.
I used the backing piece as a template over my background and and carefully pieced each letter back into the gaps, all raised up on foam pads. I then carefully peeled away the backing paper to reveal the coloured letters beneath!
I added in a photo cluster to the right and a smaller embellishment cluster to the bottom left.
I've used a mixture of Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections for this layout, mostly Boys Rule and also a little but of Midnight. I matched the mixed media paints to the Boys Rule collection.
Thank you so much for joining me today for this slightly different style of layout from me. Give this technique a try, it was great fun!
Happy scrapping xxx

THIS MOMENT MAKES MY HEART FULL | NATHALIE DESOUSA September 14, 2018 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie here with the last  "Words & Phrases" blog post.  For the past two weeks we have been creating projects using some of the JustNick Studio cut files that feature words and phrases.  There are so many designs to chose from, and since i love a large (i mean fill the page with it kinda title!) title, this project was a dream to create.

 

 

Have i mentioned i love large title layouts?!!  There is something about telling a story in a few words with a large title.  So for this page, i welded the "This Moment" and  " My Heart is Full" cut files to create the large title in my page.

 

 

 

 

I cut my title from white cardstock, and trimmed the "is" word from the cut out using a sharp pair of scissors.   Each letter was backed with papers from the new Maggie Holmes collection, "Willow Lane".

 

 

 

 

Once, the cut file was set on the layout - the background papers are also part of the WIllow Lane collection- using some foam adhesive.  A few flowers from were scattered below the cut file as to create small clusters/embellishmnets to the cut out.  These were cut also from white cardstock using the Boho Florals cut file.   Love the softness this adds to the page.

 

 

Since, I wanted to keep the title and picture as the focal point of this page, my choice was to hide the journal lines in the litte tag that is tucked behind the frame.

 

 

Love how this turned out.  The use of white cardstock to form the cut out brings out all the details of the beautiful JustNick Studio cut files, and makes it pop from the colored background.

Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio store to check all the cut files used in this page.  If you have any questions on how this was put together, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Rainbows! | Morgan Langley April 15, 2018 07:00

     Hey guys! So excited to be sharing a happy spring layout today using the title "Rainbows" and the rainbow from the "Hooray for Spring" cut file! 
      First I stitched, stitched, stitched! I cut my rainbow and title on the same paper and backed them with different pieces of the same piece of multi colored paper! The stripes in the paper were vertical, while a normal rainbow is horizontal so I thought that was a neat touch! Then I found coordinating colored thread for each color in the paper and stitched the layers of the rainbow going from pink to blue! I stitched the title in all white because I already had so much color on the page! 
     Then brads, brads, brads! I don't use brads a lot, but I picked out all the color coordinating regular circle and flower brads I had and put them on my layout going up from the blues to the pinks this time. I added some felt leaves and flowers to a couple of the brads to spin. In the title, where there would usually be a cut out in the letter I added speciality brads. 
     I wrote my journalling in one arch of the rainbow and added three little pictures of our pet bunny Clover and I! I love how this fun spring layout turned out! Make sure to go to the Just Nick store to pick up this cut file pack for yourself to create your own rainbow background!
