Hi JustNick friends! It's Monique here today with already the 7th free cut file of the "12 Days of Giveaways"!! Today the giveaway is this awesome snowflakes cut file: "Snowflakes 5": 

I decided to use one of the snowflakes as the background for my layout (the one at the bottom left side) and created this page using an older collection from Bella Blvd:  "Christmas Cheer":

I cut the snowflake from the "Daily Details" sheet, a sheet full of different colored snowflakes and love how it turned out.

Grateful for Friends | Monique Liedtke November 21, 2018 07:00

Hi JustNick friends, Monique here today with a Thankful (or rather, Grateful) layout using the brand new "Retro Hip Background" cut file.

And this is the Retro Hip Background cut file:

When I saw this cut file I new I wanted to use it straight away. I love background cut files, they are always so versatile and can be used for any and every layout you want to create.

This week's theme for the DT to use is "Thankful", but as I also wanted to use the new Crate Paper Christmas collection "Merry Days" that had just arrived at my doorstep, I chose to combine the two and created a Thankful/Christmas layout. 

I have this great group of friends that I love to spend time with and every year for the last 10 years or so, we get together on a Sunday in December to spend the day scrapping, talking, eating and be merry. I'm so grateful to be able to call these girls my friends that I decided to do this Thankful layout about them. 

Here are a few close-ups of my page:

I just love Christmas collections and this one is no exception! This is the first Chrismas layout I created this year and I think the Retro Hip Background cut file is a perfect match for my page! 

Thank you so much for stopping by the JustNick blog today and don't forget to check out the JustNick store for this and more background cut files

 

 


LOVE | Monique Liedtke November 07, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends, it's Monique here, sharing a page about my daughter and our niece, which I created with one of the new November cut files "Feathers 4" cut file and the words cut file "Word 4". Here's the layout I created:

These are the cut files I used: Feathers 4

and this one: WORD 4

I just adore using feathers on my layout and am so happy Nicole designed so many of them! Here are a few close-ups of the feathers I cut:

Except for these cut files I also puled out one of the older scrapbook collections from my stash: "Stationery Noted" from Teresa Collins. I'm such a hoarder, but sometimes all my stash "overwhelms" me and I just need to use some of it. In this case I'm so glad I did, I really love the result. 

Here's a close-up of the word "love" that I cut:

I really like these "open" words and had planned to back this one with some patterned paper, but when I held it above my layout to decide on which papers to use, I decided I really loved it better without backing. Would love to hear what you think?

 One last photo and that's it:

Thank you so much for stopping by to have a look at what I created. If you're a fan of feathers too, then you really should have a look at all the feathers in the JustNick store

Thanks again and wishing you happy cutting!


Welcome Fall | Monique Liedtke October 31, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hi JustNick friends, it's Monique here sharing one of my Autumn layouts with you. For this page I decided to use one of JustNick's (cut) files to embroider the design on my layout instead of cutting the design. I chose the Floral Swag 3 and used it to create this page of my daughter:

Here's the cut file I used: Floral Swag 3

What I did was replacing the blade by a sketch pen and instead of cutting, I let my Silhouette Cameo draw the flowers on my cardstock. I then pierced holes along the lines and used embroidery floss in various colors to hand stitch the flowers and leaves. 

I used Echo Park's "Celebrate Autumn" for my page as I just love the warm colors of the papers and because I love the owls and other cute critters in this collection!

Next I printed two small (3"x 4") photos of my girl, matted these and placed them above the flowers. I decided that the top of my layout was too white and cut a strip of patterned owl paper (4" x 12") and adhered this at the top of my layout, with a small border strip (0.5" x 12") below. 

On both sides of the photos I added a little card and a few chipboard pieces: 

As I thought there was too much white space in the largest flower of my embroidered design I punched 5 small circles and adhered these in the petals of the flower:

This is it. Hope you like it! There are more floral swag cut files in the JustNick store if you want to try some of them out to create Fall projects as well. Can't wait to see what you'll do!

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you happy scrapping!


On The Go | Monique Liedtke October 02, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique on the blog today, sharing my "Barcelona" layout with you. It's been almost 6 years that we visited this amazing city and the photos I've used on this layout have been lying on my desk for just as long! I had created a mini album for this vacation and these were my leftover photos, but as it was one of the most amazing city trips we did, I didn't want to part with them. And now I'm so glad I didn't as they were just perfect to use with the "Big Wheels" cut file!

This is the "Big Wheels" cut file; such an awesome, versatile cut file!

I also used the "Wish You Were Here" collection from Pretty Little Studio and my circle punches to create this page. Love how well the colors of Pretty Little Studio collection match my photos! And I love that I got to use so many different pieces of patterned paper in one layout! 

And no, there were no lamas to be found in Barcelona, but I adored the die-cut and wanted to include at least part of him in my page!

When I started my layout I had square sized photos, but quickly decided that that size didn't work for a multiple photo layout with this cut file. Then I punched circles from my photos and now I totally love the result!

I added a few word stickers, word flags and die-cuts and a bit of machine stitching and I was done!

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog to take a peek at my project! Hope you like it. If you're looking for this or other circular cut files or any other cut file just hop over to the JustNick store! 

Happy crafting! 

Monique


Hello Fall | Monique Liedtke September 19, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here with you today and I'm so very happy I get to share my Fall layout with you! Fall is my favorite season and I had such a great time scrapping this page! I used a photo of my daughter, which she took herself for her Bookstagram account, hence a photo of her reading. I chose the beautiful "Leaf Cluster" cut file and used it as background:

Look how awesome the Leaf Cluster cut file looks like:

I used the Echo Park's "Celebrate Autumn" collection for my page and the "Autumn Floral" paper to cut out the leaf cluster. Initially I wanted to use the other side of Autumn Floral paper, but while building my page I decided the cut-out leaves looked much better using this side of the paper! 

The cut out word "love" was still lying on my desk from one of the earlier pages I created and came from the "Valentine" cut file.

How I love Fall colors!

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my layout and don't forget to visit the JustNick store for this cut file and lots of other leaf cut files!

Wishing you happy scrapping!

xoxo Monique


You are my happy | Monique Liedtke September 13, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Monique here with you today. For this week's "Words/Phrases" assignment I chose the "You are my happy" cut file as it was perfect to scrap these fun photos of my daughter posing in a huge Starbucks cup:

Last October my daughter went on vacation with her friends and was instructed to send me a lot of fun photos and this was one of them. As she adores coffees from Starbucks, both warm and cold, this "You are my happy" cut file was just what these photos needed! 

The "Cream and Sugar" collection I used is from my favorite manufacturer "Doodlebug Design". I just love the bright colors, fun prints and the adorable die-cuts and doodle-pops in this collection.  

I sized the cut file to fit my 12" x 12" paper and cut it from the "Sugar Doodles" paper. I love how it turned out:

To adhere the cut file on my page I used just a tiny bit of adhesive and added a little machine stitching here and there both so it won't fall off later-on and to add a bit of extra texture to my page. 

This is it from me today. The "You are my happy" cut file is perfect for so many occasions, I'm sure I'll use it again and again. Don't forget to check out all the words and phrases cut files in the JustNick store. If you use one on your layout too then don't forget to share it either on our facebook page or tag us on Instagram

Thank you so much for stopping by and wishing you happy scrapping!

xoxo Monique


Without change there would be no butterflies | Monique Liedtke August 30, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone! Welcome to the JustNick blog! It's Monique here today sharing another page created with two of Nicole's one-of-a-kind cut files! I feel so blessed to be on her team, to be able to play with all the awesomeness from the store

Here's the layout I created for today's post. The photo I used is of my girl looking out over the sea and was taken during our vacation in Spain last May. I love how peaceful this photo looks. 

For this page I chose one of the butterfly cut files "Butterfly Background", which I totally adore:

And the "Valentine" cut file, from which I used the word "love": 

I used the "Brie" collection from Felicity Jane for my layout and cut the butterfly background from the pink "Gradient Grid & Stripe" sheet. I just love the ombre effect on this paper.

Before adhering the butterflies to my background, I used a Nuvo blender brush and a pink ink pad to give the white cardstock a little bit of color and I also added a few drops of pink Tattered Angels mist. 

Here are a few close-up images of my layout. Of course I had to use the chipboard circle with the saying "without change there would be no butterflies" which was perfect for my page (although I always thought the saying was the other way around "without butterflies there would be no change" ...? )

The word "love" was cut from a dotted piece of cardstock and then adhered to the photo using my tiny attacher:

I really love how this layout turned out. I hope you do too!

Thank you so much for stopping by and before you go, be sure to check out all the butterfly cut files in the shop!

Here is a link to the files I used today:
- Butterfly Background
- Valentine

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have an amazing day!
xx Monique

 


Bring on Summer | Monique Liedtke August 07, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique again with another Summer layout using the "Bring on Summer" cut files and the Sunshine & Happiness collection from Simple Stories. We have been having a couple of exceptionally warm and dry weeks here in The Netherlands and that called for lots of ice cream eating!

Here's a layout I made using a photo of the boys and I having an ice cream on our walk through the city centre here in Delft. There's this lovely Italian ice cream shop in the market square where we love to try all the different flavors they sell (which are many!).

I just love all the different cut files in the "Bring on Summer" set and used both the sun, the ice cream and the words.

Bring on Summer

The reason I chose this cut file set was the ice cream cut file of course. I cut the cone once, but the ice cream ball three times. I placed the ice cream balls on top of each other and machine stitched them together: 

Next I cut out the sun, adhered this behind the ice cream and stitched between the rays:

I matted the photo and adhered it on top of the ice cream. I cut out the title "Bring on Summer" and stapled it on top of the ice cream & photo: 

I decorated the rest of the layout with lots of die-cuts, chipboard shapes, stickers and stamps and wrote a bit of journaling in the bottom right corner and was done! 

I had so much fun creating this, hope you like it too!

Thank you so much for stopping by! And if you're looking for this cut file or for other summer cut files then please hop over to the JustNick shop! 

Have a great day!


This is the life | Monique Liedtke July 26, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone! It's Monique here today sharing a fun summer layout created with a couple of JustNick's cut files. 

Last May my family and I spent a few days in Spain and one of the activities we undertook was walk (climb) to the cross on top of the "Sierra Helada" that towers over Benidorm. For me, this was anything but easy, untrained as I am, but I did it! (The kids and my hubby seem to do the climb with much less effort!) Of course my daughter took a "selfie" and so I could do a layout about this! Here's what I made:

For this page I used the "Around The World" cut files:

I cut out the globe in almost 12"x 12" size and used that for my background and built the rest of the page on top of it. 

I used Doodlebug Design's "Sweet Summer" collection which I found just perfect for these travel cut files and my holiday photo. 

Here a few close-ups of the other cut files I used from the "Around the World" bundle: first the tag with the word "vacation" cut out:

Next the "Right Here" cut file:

And last but not least, the Geo Tags:

I really love this set of cut files! They are so perfect to use for lots more of my travel photos!

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog to take a peek at my layout. If you use these cut files too, don't forget to share on our facebook page! I would love to see what you'll make! 

Hugs,

Monique

 


This is ME | Monique Liedtke July 10, 2018 07:00 2 Comments

Hello JustNick Studio friends! 

It's Monique Liedtke here today and I'm so happy I get to share my very first DT project with you! I've loved Nicole's digital cut files forever and am so excited to be part of the JustNick team for the next year!

For this week the team was asked to create a layout about themselves and so that's what I did. I wrote some fun facts about me in the journaling on my layout and here's what it says: 
This is ME: mum, wife, daughter & friend, working at Betula/CMP as Office Manager/Secr/Training Admin. Loving: my kids, husband, dad & sis, Cocker Spaniels, reading English romance/detectives/fiction, scrapbooking (Doodlebug!), aqua jogging, walking, cycling, line dancing, lattes, buying books & hand bags and scarfs, I love Netflix, going to the cinema and watching English detectives with my hubby. I love travelling to England/Scotland/Ireland & America and of course to Cardet in the south of France. I love country music & Lady Antebellum, Outlander, my Kindle Fire and iPhone & my blue/pink bike, pink planners, sweets & cookies, and a waterbed. I love flowers like tulips, peonies, sunflowers, I love autumn & winter and the colours red and orange and I love wearing jeans & sweaters. I have my car & motorcycle license.
As you can see in my journaling, I love tulips! I love that they come in so many colors and shapes and I can't be happier when I have vases full of tulips around the house! So, when I saw the "Tulips in the Field" cut file I knew straight away which cut file I wanted to use! 
I totally adore this cut file. I love that I can back all the flowers with lots of different pieces of patterned paper and make them super colorful! For my page I "stretched" the cut file just a little so the flowers are a bit "longer" and now cover my 12"x12" background more. The cut file originally looks like this:  
Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut the tulips cut file from a multi-colored sheet of patterned paper and then backed it with even more patterned papers, using the "Summer Vibes" collection from Simple Stories. 
Here are a few close-ups:
On top of every tulip I also attached an enamel dot and a few (word) stickers or diecuts. 
I used my sewing machine to add a bit of fun stitching to all the stalks of the flowers. 
You probably can't see it but in the photo I'm standing in a field of tulips! 
This is it, my first DT layout for JustNick. Hope you like it! Wishing you happy crafting and please stop by again tomorrow for more inspiring projects!
