14 Days of Giveaways - Day 3 | Jaclyn Rench December 03, 2017 07:00 3 Comments

Welcome to Day 3 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways!  Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

This time of year I spend a good portion of my crafty time working on documenting my holiday memories in a December Daily style album.  So, I was excited to incorporate today's free cut file, Falala, into my mini, in a fun and creative way!

I've been wanting to turn a cut design into an oversized page divider, in a mini album, for some time now.  I thought this cut file had a good amount of surface area to pull off this technique.  And I was right!  It successfully divides my two page spread, while still adding enough of a 'see-through' element to unify the right and left designs.

One cut of the file is simply not enough to make for a sturdy page divider.  I sized and cut the file three times, out of a heavy weight, white cardstock.

I used a liquid adhesive to adhere each layer of the design on top of the next.  Doing so, ensures that this interactive piece will withstand passing over the album ring binding, again and again.

To create precisely aligned holes, I simply placed my cut design over top of my page protector and used a coordinating hole punch.

The finished piece easily slips into the binding of my album, and turns just like any other page.  Because the design is so cute on it's own, I added nothing more than a sprinkling of clear sequins for a little extra sparkle and shine.

Remember that Today's design - FALALA - is yours for FREE today only!

Just enter code: FALALAFREE  at checkout to get this design for free.

This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 3, 2017.  No purchase necessary today, only!  This design will be available in the JustNick store for purchase after the discount code expires.

Check back tomorrow for another FREE cut file!

Hello Summer Mini Album | Jennifer McMurtrey July 22, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Jen today sharing a 4 x 6 summer-themed mini album created using several - okay, make that a lot of - designs from the Just Nick Cut File Store and a mix of collections from Simple Stories.

First is the cover - this was created using a photo overlay with alphabet stickers stitched on for the title. For a bit of texture and color, I added a strip of t-shirt and a piece of ribbon from my stash. 

The second page is one of my favorites - it uses the Sunray Background cut file, which I sized down before cutting on my Silhouette.

Prior to cutting the Sunray Background in half, I machine stitched each of the rays and around the sun. Next, cut the sun in half, put both sides together, and sewed along the edge to create a pocket. I then used a journaling card to jot down some memories and placed it inside the pocket.

The next page uses the Summer Words and Beach Umbrella Background cut files that are attached to a 4 x 6 piece of patterned paper.

Up next are a couple of smaller photos on one page with more stitched cut files on the opposite side using the Summer, Summer Fun, and Beach Umbrella Background files. It is hard to see in the photo, but I cut a palm tree using another acetate photo overlay and it is behind the sun.

My idea for this album began with the File Folders cut file which this page uses. Here, I have added several more photos with die cuts, stickers, and the beach ball from Summer Fun.

Two more pages follow that use more patterned papers, stickers, and die cuts with stitching.

 

Here is another photo and several cuts from Summer Words, Summer Fun, and the File Folders cut files.

Thanks for making it this far . . . we are almost to the end.

This page has more machine stitching with stickers and die cuts the "fun" from Summer tucked behind the photo.

Here is another photo on the left with the On an Adventure cut file stitched to a piece of vellum. 

Here I machine stitched a portion of the Wave Border 2 file on a 4 x 4 piece of patterned paper.

Just inside the back cover I used more of the Wave Border 2 behind my photo, which is attached to another 4 x 6 folder from File Folders.

Last is the back cover, which uses a 4 x 6 patterned paper and a photo overlay for added protection.

Thank you for sticking with me to end of this very long post. Please be sure to visit the JustNick blog daily for tons of inspiration from the design team.
