JustNick Cut File Store

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!

Love You the Most by Sophie Delorme September 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Leaf Wreaths” and “Build a Wreath”, duplicated and cut them on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I used a Felicity Jane Kit named “June” for this page.

 

I started by applying some Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical powder on a thick white cardstock to create a mixed media background in soft peach and orange tones.

 

I cut a big rectangle of patterned paper and turned up the upper edge so that we can see the reverse side and its beautiful pink floral pattern, and made a zig zag stitch along with a checkered strip of patterned paper to adhere everything on the background.

 

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo and placed it on the right side of the page.

 

I cut the Leaf Wreaths in a few pieces and mixed them with the other foliage to created two beautiful clusters on both sides of my photo. I only adhered their base so that it creates movement and dimension to the page.

 

 

I mixed the clusters with a few floral embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection.

 

I also created a bouquet on the upper left side of the layout with a few leaves that I had left, and tied them with a beautiful bow made out of a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

My title is also from a Pinkfresh Studio die.

 

 

Finally, I created another cluster of embellishments with a journaling card, some tags, a heart and flowers to handwrite my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am very happy with the result! These beautiful leaves add so much to the page! And cutting them on a white cardstock doesn’t make the page too busy and highlights the photo beautifully!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you in some way today,

 

Thank you for stopping by!

 

Sophie xx

YOU & ME | Nathalie DeSousa June 13, 2021 07:00

Hello everyone!

Nathalie here with a new layout using Just Nick Studio's gorgeous cut files.  I am so happy to be back for a new term with this team, and working with Nicole's designs and a new amazing group of ladies.  Today, I wanted to use some of the new designs  to create a simple and clean design.

 

 

I used the new  PRETTY SWAG cut file to create the large floral die cuts from white cardstock.  These were three times at different sizes, so that they form  the large swag from the top to bottom of the page.

 

 

 

I combined papers from Pinkfresh Studio's latest collections to create my page, and decided to add a few more pieces to the clusters -as a way to bulk them up-.  For this, I used the STEMS 4 cut file to cut a few extra leaves and branches and glued them around the large floral cluster.

 

 

 

To finish the page, I added a simple title and a few gems around the clusters  just to add a pop of shine!

 

 

Remember to check all the new designs that are available in the shop.  You will love all that Nicole is adding to Just Nick Studio shop.

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 !

Love You | Heart to Heart cut file | Sophie Delorme March 24, 2021 07:00

Hello !

 

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

 

My assignment this week was to create a more masculine layout.

 

 

I used the “Heart to Heart” background 2 cut file for my design and a sweet photo of my teenager holding our dog.

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock for my background and played with Shimmerz paints and watercolors to add some blue mixed media where I planned to put the cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and backed the hearts with different patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio “Be You” collection. I also hand stitched around a few hearts with blue embroidery floss.

 

 

I added adhesive foam to the back of the entire cut file before adhering it to the page. I also added tissue paper, adhesive foam and a chipboard frame to my photo.

 

I teared two strips of patterned paper that I put on the bottom of the page to ground the whole design.

 

I added my title, fussy cut leaves out of patterned paper and a few other embellishments and hand wrote my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you with this page today. There are so many options of cut files in the Just Nick Studio store and many of them can be used for more masculine pages.

 

Thank you for passing by today and happy creating !

 

Sophie xx

 

 


This Moment | Nathalie DeSousa March 15, 2021 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today with a bit of inspiration using JustNick Studio cut files.   Every week, Nicole adds a list of awesome designs to the shop that make me think of all the possibilities that you can create in a page with them.   For this project, I selected one of the newest cut files for this page:

 The new Floral Border cut file is beautiful, the design is perfect to create a border on any page, but how about combining two of the borders to create a band for your page?

 

 

 

II enlarged two of the borders to fit the height of the page, then drew a large rectangle that was about 3"x12". I welded the two Floral Border images to each of the long sides of the rectangle, and sent it to cut from white cardstock.

  

 

I set the cut out on the center of a background paper (Simple Stories), and added small pieces of foam adhesive to some of the outer branches of the cutout, to give them some dimension.  I used Washi Tapes from Pinkfresh Studio to add the florals around the picture, then added a few extra embellishments around it.

 

 

 

For my title, I used the This Moment cut file.  I cut it 4 times from white cardstock, and glued the cut outs together to give them the appearance of chipboard. I backed the letters with patterned paper, and colored "this"  golden with watercolor.

 

All was left to do was add a few lines of journal, and a few embellishments, and it was done!  I love how easy this came together using  two of Just Nick Studio' Shop. Be sure to stop by to check all the new designs.

LOVE YOU / Mandalla Heart / Sophie Delorme February 5, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !

Enjoy The Moment | Sophie Delorme January 22, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

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

 

 

I used two different cut files for this page. The first one is called “Rustic Winter Frame” and the second one, for my title, is called “Enjoy The Moment”.

 

 

 

I decided to enlarge quite a bit and cut the Rustic Winter Frame on white cardstock. I cut out the inner piece of the frame on watercolor paper, added a little bit of mixed media on my background with watercolors and, once dried, stitched the beautiful frame on the page. As you noticed I also backed the fine line around the frame with blue cardstock that matched my color scheme.

 

 

Then, I added dimensional foam to the back of my whole background before adhering it to a beautiful patterned paper from the Pinkfrech Studio collection named “Oh what Fun !”. I love how it brings depth to the frame and direct the attention to my photo.

 

I created a beautiful floral and leaves cluster on the lower left of the frame, where there already is a bunch of leaves from the cut file. I added ephemeras from the Pinkfresh Studio collection and also punched leaves out of colored cardstock.

 

 

I cut the cut file title on green cardstock and did an offset cut on white cardstock. I adhered the two of them together and added some Glossy Accents (from Ranger) on the green cardstock to make it shine.

 

 

Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops here and there around the page and hand wrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !  I hope you do too !

 

Thank you for stopping by today !

 

I will see you very soon !

So Sweet Layout | Triple Layer Fancy Background cut file | Sophie Delorme January 15, 2021 07:00 6 Comments

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie with you today with a new layout featuring the amazing Triple Layer Fancy Background cut file !

 

 

 

I cut it with my cutting machine on light blue, light green and white cardstock and layered the three backgrounds together. As easy as one, two, three !

 

I added adhesive foam behind it and backed the inner wholes with white cardstock, then put everything on a beautiful 12x12 patterned paper from a 2018 Pinkfresh Studios collection named “Holiday Vibes”.

 

 

I could have backed it with a dark cardstock for a more dramatic look, and actually was quite hesitant in my choice…! It really depends on what you are looking for. I finally went for a soft look.

 

I love the beautiful details and dimension that it adds to my page !

 

I used a photo of me and my sweet dog, and used a pocket card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I clustered around my photo some fussy cut elements, chipboard stickers and die cuts from the same collection.

 

 

With such a beautiful background, you surely don’t need a lot more embellishments to add !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

 


Memories Together | Sophie Delorme November 19, 2020 07:00

Hello friends !

 

It' Sophie with you today with a beautiful fall layout to share !

 

 

I used the gorgeous "Fall Leaf Swag 2" cut file recently released on the JustNick store, and the "Fall Leaves Outline" cut file as well:

 

 

 

I started my page by using a craft 12x12 cardstock as my base, applied white gesso in the centre and some Shimmerz paints to create a soft mixed media look. 

 

I also added white splatters with acrylic paint. 

 

I cut the cut files on white cardstock with my cutting machine. I backed each leaf with patterned papers from the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio fall collection called "Days of Splendor". As you might notice, I also used the inner pieces of some leaves, sticked them down on patterned paper and cut around them. 

 

I arranged the cut files around my photo in a diagonal line. I have added adhesive foam to the cut files before adhering them to the page. 

 

My photo is a family photo taken a few weeks ago on a beautiful fall sunny morning nearby where I live.The fall colors all around us were just magical !

 

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo as well.

 

Then, I created a few floral and leaf clusters with embellishments from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection around the photo and on the upper left of the page, and stitched that beautiful tab "Family Time" on the top of the page.

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and stamped the date, and that's a wrap up !!

 

 

These autumnal cut files are so versatile ! They can go for girly or boyish layouts and lead you easily to create your design. 

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you for stopping by !

Magical moments | Anna Blades November 10, 2020 07:00

Hi JustNick friends!

Anna here with you today, with this soft and delicate layout. Flowers are my favorite cut files, and this Rosette Bunch cut file it's not an exception. It's delicate but modern.

I started splattering white acrylic paint on a peach and pink patterned paper. Then, I ripped another patterned paper and distressed the edges. I glued all of them together in the middle of the page.

I cut the Rosette Bunch cut file twice from white cardstock and placed both cut files diagonally. I wanted them to be the focal point of my layout. And I didn't back the cut files because I also wanted the background to be seen through them.

Peeking through the cut files I placed some of these textured leaves. They're very translucent, and they give an ethereal look to the page.

For my title, I only use this die cut with the phrase "magical moments".  I thought it was perfect because it matches the color of the papers and the letters are white as the cut files. I raised it and also the photo to give more depth to the page. Also, I framed my photo with a piece of vellum.

Finally, I scattered some enamel dots around the layout, put a flair button on the right top corner of my photo, and wrote my journaling with a white gel pen. The patterned papers and the die cut are from Pinkfresh Studio.

I really love how it turned out. These soft colors are so pretty. I hope you like it too and it gives you some inspiration for an easy use of cut files. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. See you soon with more ideas!

 


HAPPY HALLOWEEN |Nathalie DeSousa October 19, 2020 07:00

Hi there!
Nathalie with you today to kick off Halloween week here in the JustNick Studio blog.   Though my kids are teenagers now, and were never big into celebrating Halloween, I still like to go back and bring past memories for my designs.  With so many new and beautiful cut files in the shop, it is so easy to put pages together quickly.

 


How fun is this Halloween page in non-traditional colors.   I really wanted something happy and lighter to document these pictures.  So, I started by adding a bit of watercolor that  matched the colors in the Days of Splendor collection by Pinkfresh Studio.

 

 

While the background dried, I cut the spiderweb design from black cardstock using the new Halloween Icons cut file.  

 

 

 

At the same time, I cut -from white cardstock - the Happy Halloween cut file three times.  While I stacked and glued this together -to form a dimensional title-, I cut the design one more time from patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio's Days of Splendor collection.

 

To set up the layout, first I added a frame of patterned paper around the entire layout; then, carefully, I attached the spiderweb die cut to the center of the page, and then added the title atop the spiderweb.  I used the negative parts of the patterned paper title die cut to back the title empty letter space.

I added a few embellishments from the same collection and Simple Stories Boo Crew through the page.  This was so fun and easy to put together.  Those non-traditional colors get a Halloween"y" feeling with the addition of the black spiderweb.  I hope you are inspired by this page, and check the cut file design in the Just Nick studio shop.

XO,


THANKFUL FOR FALL | Nathalie DeSousa September 18, 2020 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to continue with our Fall themed week.   Fall is probably my favorite time of the year! Everything is nice and cozy, plus nature shows its best colors at this time.   There are so many new cut files in the JustNick Studio shop that it was so easy to put this page together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Love taking pictures of my family at their best, and wanted to bring the feel of the branches of the tree in a delicate way.  So, i cut the new Floral Cluster 1 three times -at different sizes- to recreate a delicate branch on my page.

 

 

I set the die cuts so that they formed a delicate branch of flowers and leaves coming into the page.   I decided to keep the cut outs simple as i wanted them to stand out on the nice paper background (Days of Splendor collection - Pinkfresh Studio)

 

 

 

 

I also build my own title using the Fall TN  and Card Sentiments 3 cut files.  I simply cut them once from patterned paper and twice from white cardstock.  These where stacked and glued together to create a dimensional die cut.  I just added a few extra mini alphas and done!

 

 

I hope this inspires you to stop by the shop and check all the Just Nick cut file designs,  There are so many designs to choose from!  Cannot wait to see what you create with the cut files!

XO


Fly | Vicki Parker May 1, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout which I hope you will find inspiring in some way!

 

I used an older cut file called Up in the Air, which you can find in store here

 

I started by cutting just the top left balloon three times - one big and the other two smaller. I used one of the Paige Evans Bloom Street papers to back all three balloons and then added a little bit of subtle watercolour to each to add a slightly more 'grungy' feel. I also put a very light blue wash over the background cardstock so that it gave the impression of sky.

I also painted the baskets of the balloons in coordinating colours rather than leave them white.

I layered up my photo with some pocket life cards and then used some Bloom Street florals to embellish, together with a PinkFresh layered sticker and some Bramble Fox clouds.

Finally, I added by title using the Vicki Boutin Let's Wander Thickers which I adore and will be sad to run out of! And that's it! I do hope you like it - thank you so much for looking. See you next time!

 


BEAUTIFUL US |Nathalie DeSousa February 14, 2020 07:00

Happy Valentine's Day JustNick Studio friends!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout all about love.   My husband and I have been married for 20yrs which means this will be our 20th Valentine's day!  So, i wanted to document last year picture using some of the new cut files available at the  JustNIck Studio shop!

 

 

Who says Valentine's has to be all about red and pink?  Well, my choice was to bring a combination of soft and bold colors along with flowers and dynamic design.

 

 

 

To build my cut hear cut out, i used the outline heart from the FLORAL HEART cut file ( i separated the paths, so that i can only use the outside edge of the heart) and added an inside off set to create the small heart frame.  I backed the heart with vellum and a paper from the Just A Little Lovely collection from Pinkfresh Stiudio.

 

 

I used papers from the new My Favorite Story (Pinkfresh Studio) to create the background for this page.  I set the heart on the background  so that it sits on a bit of an offset at the center of the page.

 

 

 

I cut two of the bottom floral from the DIVIDED FLORAL Cut file and laid them along the right side of the heart.  This created a soft cascade of white floral images along the bold side of the background.

 

 

 

I kept the left side of the heart pretty simple.  This time i use  BUTTERFLY cut file to create the one that sits next to the title.  I cut it from white cardstock, and then use vellum to cut a simple silhouette of the same butterfly so i can layered them together.

 

 

I added just a few more embellishments from the collection and then a few lines of journal complete my page.  I LOVE how this turned out, simple and bold just like my hunny and I.

 

Remember to stop by the JUSTNICK Studio blog to check all the cut files used in this page,

 

HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY everyone!

 


How Sweet This Is | Claudia van Rooijen November 26, 2019 07:00

Hello everyone! Claudia here with another layout I created using the Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely collection.

For this layout I'm using the beautiful Remember Floral cut file.

I cut it from white cardstock and then mounted it with a watercolor background paper from the collection.

I knew I wanted it to mostly feature pink and yellow.

I placed a few of the phrase stickers that I felt applied to my photo (a selfie of me and Amy during one of our walks in August).

It's quite a simple layout but I really wanted the cut file to be the main focus of the layout so I felt that it didn't need a ton of embellishing and only added a few small things here and there.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout!

Xo Claudia


Thankful | Claudia van Rooijen November 15, 2019 07:00

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a layout I created with the new 'Grateful Heart' cut file and the Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely collection. I'm thankful for so many people but for this one I decided to document this photo of me and Amy (our dog) because I'm so thankful for having her as my walking companion which has been great for both my physical and mental health this past year.

The first thing I did was decide which paper to mount behind the cut file and ended up going for this pretty watercolor paper (my favorite!) that was a perfect match for the color scheme I had in mind.

I knew I wanted to use lots of flower around and inside of the heart so I pulled a decent amount of acetate florals from the collection. 

I placed some enamel dots all around to create pops of color - I love these!

I backed white paper behind some of the acetate florals so that they weren't see through anymore and others I just kept as is for a little bit of variety in texture.

In the end I came in with the puffy stickers to fill up some of the empty spaces within the heart.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout and that you will feel inspired to craft yourself!

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

BUT FIRST COFFEE | Nathalie DeSousa November 5, 2019 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout that is all about my devotion/addiction to coffee.   Every time i get a new coffee mug, i always take a selfie with it, and this new mug is probably a new favorite and large enough to hold 2 cups of coffee at once :)  .. So, just imagine how happy it made me to see the new Just Nick Studio cut files, just perfect for this page!

 

 

 

 I started by creating the mixed media background of this page using VIcki Boutin Art Crayons and Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolors. While the background dried, i started working on the title for the page.

 

 

 

I used the But First Coffee cut file to cut the title of the page from white cardstock.  First, i set the machine to cut the "But FIrst" part of the title four times from white cardstock so i could stack them together, and create my own dimensional alphas.

 

 

I chose to stitch the "coffee" part of the title; for this, i first added an offset to the word -on my Silhouette Studio platform-, then set the inner lines of the word as a perforated line, and then send it to cut from white cardstock.  This is an easy way to obtain a stitching guide without having to pierce the holes.  I then used some embroidery thread and Espresso Liquid Watercolor - Pinkfresh Studio - to detail the word.

 

 

 

To continue the circle shape of the background (mug ring marks) i cut a circle frame from white cardstock using the Infinity Hearts cut file.   I used it to frame my picture and continue the look of the background.

 

 

To embellish my page, i chose to add embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio's Office Hours collection and Citrus Twist Kits.  I made sure that the embellishments stayed within a small color palette and had a circular shape.

 

 

I hope this inspires you to check the new cut files available at JustNick Studio - if you are a coffee lover, then you must get the cut file--, there is always something for everyone.   Remember you can always contact me with any questions!

 


Fall Photo Shoot | Vicki Parker October 17, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki with you today to share my latest layout with a fall theme. 

 

 

I started with the Fall cut file which was new to the store in September and can be found here.

 

 

I backed each letter along with the leaves and acorns using papers from Dear Lizzy She's Magic and Jen Hadfield This is Family.

 

 

Using some Lindy's Magical powders, I created a mixed media background on which to place the cut file using the packaging technique - I love the shimmer it gives.

 

 

I layered my photos to the top of the cut file and then added in some flowers fussy cut from the Dear Lizzy papers along with the remainder of my title using Pinkfresh Studio Just a Little Lovely alpha.

 

 

I really hope it gives you some inspiration for using a large word on your layout. Until next month....

 


Wonderful Moments Together | Nathalie DeSousa September 2, 2019 07:00

hi there!

Nathalie with you today to kick start Word Week.   I love large bold titles, so this was an easy assignment for me, specially when i get to work with some of the JustNick Studio designs.   

 

JUSTNICK STUDIO- Wonderful Moments Together by Nathalie DeSousa

 

For this page, i combined the Moments, Word 3, and Love List cut files to create the large title/background.   Since i am using a non-white background, i chose to cut each image from white cardstock.

 

 

I used the new Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely collection to back the letters of the Moments cut file.   A bit of foam adhesive between the patterned paper and the cut out create dimension on the cut out.

 

 

 

I cut each word separately,and then glued them together before attaching them to the background.    Once the title was in place, i added a picture of my kids and littles at the top of page, nestled in the "wonderful" word.

 

 

To decorate the page, i used the new Pinkfresh Studio Painted Florals Washi tape and coordinating dies.   I clustered the image together to form a visual triangle in the page, then added some phrase stickers and gold ink splatters.

 

 

I love how this turned out, and how easy it came together.   Mixing and matching word cut files from JustNick Studio will surely yield a one-of-a-kind image for your next project.  Make sure you check them all up!

XO,

 


DREAM & REST YOUR WINGS / SARAH BARGO August 16, 2019 07:00

Hey there paper peeps! I have a fun layout to share with you today, using 2 different cut files! Today we're going to use the Butterfly, and the Mirrored Florals! This was just a fun eclectic kind of layout, lots of fun shapes and patterns goin on here :) 

 As soon as I saw these gorgeous floral borders, I knew what I wanted to do with them! I had this cute Pinkfresh Studio paper with all these tabs down the side, so I cut them apart in a few places and then tucked the flowers in there! 

Just something different, I love how it turned out! Then I cut the butterfly wing out and put it underneath my photo, sort of showing a "resting" wing. I'm totally just chillaxin in this photo, but I will tell you that this doesn't usually happen lol! I always feel super guilty when I'm laying around, like I'm running out of time or something it's weird.. So I wanted to make a layout to remind myself that it's ok to rest sometimes, it's good for you! 

Grrrr sorry I just noticed the cat hair on my layout hahaha! What can I say, Salem  obviously doesn't have an issue with napping on my projects (insert eyeroll here..)

So remember! It's ok to crush those dreams, but also make time to rest your wings :)

 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful day! 

xoxo Sarah

 

 


Globe Trotter | Vicki Parker August 13, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today sharing my latest layout with a travel theme.

I had some of the Carta Bella Let's Travel collection and knew it would be perfect for my layout using the fabulous Around the World cut files. I only used two of the tags, the globe and the geo tag, but there is lots of choice here.

I started by enlarging the globe to the full size of a piece of white cardstock and once cut, I chain stitched around the entire shape with blue thread. Now, this did take quite a bit of time, but I really think it was worth it!

I stuck it on an angle onto a piece of PinkFresh Just a Little Lovely paper which has a stunning watercolour effect and really makes the globe pop! With the tags I cut also on PinkFresh paper, I backed the words with white cardstock and outlined them in black fineliner pen.

I also outlined the heart on the geo tag and used the cut out heart on the One Canoe Two Saturday Afternoon camera.

The rest of the layout was put together with chipboard elements from Carta Bella and a perfect acrylic title from Bramble Fox.

Thank you so much for looking - I hope it gives you some inspiration on using the Around the World cut file. I will be back later in the month with a rainbow theme layout. Until next time....


Floral and Butterfly Card Set | Rachel Lowe May 30, 2019 10:00

Hi friends, today I have a card set to share! 

I have used two cut files to create these cards.

I have used Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 collection. My cards are 5x5 inches. I firstly cut a circle and heart into the front of my card. I then cut a 5x5 inch white cardstock strip and added to the back of the front cover, using foam tape to give me some dept to work with which allowed me to fill in the circle and heart with my chosen cut files.

I used a floral paper to cut my flowers and when layering I added foam tape between the layers to add height which meant my flowers were coming up and over the circle. I used three sizes to create my flowers from visual interest. Some centres I added enamel dots and others I used NUVO Jewel drops (white). I finished my card off adding a word sentiment (which is a puffy sticker from the collection) and heart.

 My next card I used the floral paper that I made the flowers from and cut a heart and adhered to the white cardstock strip previously cut. I then used an ombre paper so my butterfly would have light and shade for visual interest.

I cut two of the same size, three different sized butterflies and added a row of machine stitching to the centre which allowed me to bend up the wings for dimension.

I finished this card off with a die cut word sentiment from the collection added with foam tape for height. And there you have it some beautiful cards ready for gifting. I can see myself using this flower and butterfly again and again.

Thanks for stopping by today, hoping you have a wonderful creative week!


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.  

XO

 

 


HEY AMAZING YOU | Nathalie DeSousa April 22, 2019 07:00

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a new project that fits this week's theme, Flowers.   There are so many new beautiful cut files available in the JustNick Studio shop, so, I picked a few of them to create this fresh flowery page.

 

 

I started this page by adding a bit of mixed media to the background using acrylic white paint and Distress inks.  While the background dried, i cut from white cardstock the Henna Heart cut file as well as a few stems using the Stems 2 cut file.

 Once the background dried, the heart cut out was glued to the page. I pulled Pinkfresh Studio's Joyful Day collection to create the flowers using the Build a Flower 3, Build a Flower 4, Build a Flower 6, and Build a Flower 7 cut files.

 


I ruffled the edges of the flowers using a bone folder and then build them together.  I replace the flowers in the heart cut out with these flowers, and added the  stems behind them so that they create clusters around the page.

 

 

A few embellishments from the Joyful Day collection complete the clusters and title in the page.  A few lines of journal and gold ink droplets are the final touches added.

 

 

I hope this has inspired you to mix a few of the JustNick Studio designs in your next project.  Nicole has added lots of beautiful designs to the store lately, it is hard to just choose one.

Remember you can always contact me if you have questions on how this came together.

12 Days of Christmas Give Aways Day 3 | Rachel Lowe December 3, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hello Justnick friends! Christmas is coming yay!

I hope you are enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas give aways! Today is Day 3 and here is the free cut file for today.

And here is what I created using these gorgeous Holiday Florals cut files. I also used the Winter Frame cut file.

I have used Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Vibes collection. I cut numerous flowers and holly and leaves in white card stock. Resizing so I had various sizes to create clusters.

I then paper backed each one. With the flowers I only adhered at the centres so it would give the effect of layers. I added a die cut flower on two of the cut file flowers to add even more laters.

I created three clusters of flowers and holly/leaves around the wreath, adding embellishments from the PF collection and finishing off by adding enamel dots and crystal drops from my stash. The branches from the Winter Frame cut file adding more layers and texture.

I finished off by adding gold/white glitter flakes to add a real Christmas sparkle. I added my journalling of our family tradition, trifle made by my mother each and every year!

 

 And there you have it, a Christmas layout not so traditional but just as lovely. and here is how you get your free Holiday Florals cut file.

FALL LOVE | Nathalie DeSousa September 24, 2018 07:00

Hello everyone!

Happy Fall everyone!  Nathalie with you today with a new layout for Fall week.  Can you tell I love Fall?!  I am so excited to pull out my sweaters, drink all the PSL i  can find, but mostly to go out and enjoy all the colorful nature.   So, i poured some of my love of the season into this new layout that uses a few of the Just Nick Studio cut files and a bit of mixed media.

 

 

To start this page, i used the Grateful cut fileFall Florals cut file, and the Leaf It to Me cut file, to cut the various leaves you see from white cardstock.

 

 

 

 

 

 To cut the solid maple leaves for this page, i used only the outline of the Leaf it To Me cut  file ( I released the path of the image on my Silhouette software, and then just highlighted the outline to be cut).  

 

 

Once all the leaves were cut out, i pulled my Pinkfresh liquid watercolors to add a very saturated amount to all of them, and set them aside to dry completely; this helped to create the natural curvature in the leaves.

 

 

While the leaves dried, I used some of the watercolors to create my background, and then trimmed the cardstock and glued it to a paper from Pinkfresh Studio.

 

 

Once all the leaves were dried, i used a white and black fine gel liners to detail the vines in the leaves, and then used foam adhesive to attach them to the background.    Just a few embellishments were needed to complete this page after all those colorful leaves.

 

 

I love how this turned out!, and all it took was a sheet of white cardstock, some of the beautiful Just Nick Studio and PinkFresh Studio watercolors and goodies.   

Remember to stop by the JustNick Studio store to check all the cut files used in this page and the new designs being added each week.  As always you can contact me if you have questions on how this was put together.

Dreamer April 23, 2018 07:00

Hey there crafty friends,

Zsoka back with you today, sharing a new layout I've created for the Just Nick Design Team.

This week we are focusing backgrounds and I've picked a gorgeous one that I don't think I've used before. Not that I can remember anyway! It's called Crazy Daisy background 2 and you can buy it here

I went with the beautiful Let Your Heart Decide collection from Pinkfresh Studio on this layout. I cut the cut file from white textured card stock and backed each flower the same way, using a different patterned paper for each petal.

I then adhered this onto the background paper I chose. Guys, I generally don't like red. Sure, I love red lipstick, red pumps and purses, accessories etc, but when it comes to paper crafting for instance, it's the last thing I would pick. Unless it's in a rainbow. But this paper is so awesome, it has a texture printed on it, almost like a knit. Then I love the gradient look from dark to light. Plus I just liked the way the cut file looked on it. Hence, red background paper!

When I use a full background cut file that I back with patterned paper, I usually don't embellish much. I created a cluster with the photo: I added some tissue paper behind the photo, a die cut frame on top as well as some other die cuts on two sides. 

For my title I also used a die cut from the ephemera pack which I popped up using foam adhesive.

I wrote my journaling on a sticker and created a small cluster at the right bottom. Then done! I don't like to cover up backgrounds like this, I spend way too much time on backing it for that!

I hope you like today's inspiration and give this look a try!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous week!

Harvest | Zsoka Marko March 27, 2018 07:00

Hi there crafty friends,

Zsoka back with you today sharing my latest layout I've created for Just Nick!

This week our theme is flowers, the easiest theme of all! Nicole creates the most wonderful floral cut files!

Another cut file I've wanted to use in ages was the Delicate Florals. I was just never quite sure what to do with it. Recently however I made another layout using similar cut files and now finally I felt inspired to use these gorgeous flowers!

I haven't had the chance to work with the new Pinkfresh Studio collections so I picked one of them for today's layout, the Let Your Heart Decide line. I think this is my favourite of the 3, although it's hard to decide! But the colors and flowers make my heart beat faster haha!

I cut the cut files from textured white card stock and I cut two of each flower. I then backed them with patterned papers. Each pair I backed with the same papers.

I chose a beautiful blue patterned paper for my background and adhered the flowers at the bottom - I kind of layered the same flowers on top of each other, if that makes sense. 

I added some tissue paper behind my photo, then tucked it behind one of the flowers and glued it down. I embellished around the photo using some labels, leatherette stickers and card stock stickers. I picked a different color for each of my letters in the title and arranged them in kind of a crooked way so that the layout is more fun.

Down at the bottom I also embellished a little with wood veneer stickers, die cuts and some fussy cut flowers.

To finish off my page, I stamped the date and wrote my journaling.

That's it for today lovelies!

Hope you like how this layout turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and have and awesome day!

Happy Cards! | Morgan Langley March 4, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing some fun and simple cards I created using the "Love you More" cut file! 

I used the Pink Pasilee "Turn the Page" collection for simple embellishing and they are ready to send a positive note to a friend or loved one! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure to check out this adorable cut file in the Just Nick shop! 

 


These are the moments | Zsoka Marko February 21, 2018 07:00

Hi there crafty friends,

Zsoka back with you today to share a new layout I've created for Just Nick!

This time the Delicate Butterflies cut file spoke to me :).  

As I'm waiting for the new Pinkfresh Studio collections to arrive, I decided to use up some of the old ones! My most favourite collection ever from PFS is Indigo Hills and I haven't scrapped with it in ages so I went with this collection. 

I arranged the cut file in Silhouette Studio the way I wanted it on my layout - I removed the small butterfly at the bottom, then duplicated the cut file and flipped one of them horizontally to get mirror images. I also cut a bigger, single butterfly for the bottom. I used textured white card stock for the cut files. 

I then backed the cut files with different patterned papers, going from light to dark from top to bottom. I layered some tissue paper and tags behind my photo and glued it all down. I glued down the cut files also. I started adding embellishments, as much as I could, I went with a tone-on-tone effect. 

I also picked out some die cuts from the beautiful Escape the Ordinary collection, some butterflies and foliage, plus my title. I wrote my journaling, stamped my date and added some black ink splatters to finish off my page. 

I hope I could inspire you in some small way!

Thanks for stopping by!

Today | Star Cluster | Michelle Whorwood November 25, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick Fans, Michelle W here with a new layout for 'Thankful' week on the blog.  Today, I have gone a little less traditional by not using a specific thankful cut file but instead creating a masculine fun layout with a thankful theme.  I hope you like it!

I used the 'Star Cluster' cut file as it is a super fun one to use for 'boy pages' and I've cut it out on white cardstock as I wanted to make a play on white on white with a cool colourful background. 

I thought I would also share a small tip, my mat and my blade are starting to getting a bit dull so my cut isn't actually perfect on this file.  I'm actually waiting for a new blade to turn up but instead of just throwing out the cut as it wasn't perfect, I've added a few adhesive stars in the places were the cut was a bit damaged and you wouldn't even know that this was the case at all on my final page! 

Here are some close ups:

I hope you have been enjoying our week of gratitude this week and that you have been inspired by all the design teams' creations!!

Take care xx


#Cute | Feather 3 | Michelle Whorwood November 13, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick Fans!

Michelle W here today with a new layout with one of the new cut files in store called Feather 3.  This one is a super pretty set of 3 feathers which could be added to lots of different layouts both masculine and feminine.  

Here is my layout: 

I was initially looking at using this cut file with 3 different photos so I cut all three feathers with white cardstock.  When I was looking for photos to use on my layout, I however, found 2 photos that I really liked so I decided to instead use 2 feather shapes on my page.  You may notice that on the "right hand" feather is actually the middle blank feather on the cut file with the one on the outline feather layered on top.  This works perfectly and adds dimension and texture in a subtle way.   

I also really liked the first feather with the 'swirl' shapes which is quite a similar shape to a 'Koru' here in New Zealand.  I don't often use feathers on my scrapbooking pages so I really enjoyed challenging myself to create this one.  I liked the symmetry of having the two photos side by side layered up on both the feathers.  To connect them, I added in some embellishments down the centre of both of my photos and then added in some chevrons that I fussy-cutted out from PinkFresh patterned paper to lead you into the rest of my page and anchor my title. 

Here are some close ups:

 

I hope you have enjoyed my layout I have shared today.  Do you like to use feathers on your pages?   

 


Rooting for Our Home Team | Jennifer McMurtrey September 5, 2017 07:00

Hey everyone! It's Jen today sharing one last summer layout before I go into full-on fall mode - you've been warned! LOL!

The story behind this layout is kind of funny because we live in Washington state and have never been to a Mariners game. While we were in California in June we had tickets to see the Angels and they just so happened to be playing the Mariners. Because it was only a few days until the Fourth of July, the stadium was handing out these fun hats to everyone as they came in the doors. My son Caleb had several on his head at once and I snapped this cute photo of him.

To create this project, I first used the Starburst cut file from the JustNick shop.

I cut the file using patterned paper from the Paige Evans Turn the Page collection and used the negative as a stencil of sorts for my watercolors. I adhered white cardstock to a piece of patterned paper and then painted the main focal area of the layout.

Once the watercolors had dried, I placed the stars over the top and adhered with foam dots. Next, I used some of the negative star cuts and placed them within the larger stars.

With the stars in place, I laid my photo over them and again used foam dots to adhered it to the page.

Next, I used a tag, chipboard stars and die cuts from the same Paige Evans collection. My final step was to add a puffy sticker, enamel dots, and the title using items from Pinkfresh Studio along with a bit of journaling.

I love being able to use cut files to personalize my projects, and I love the fun element they add to the layout! Be sure to visit the JustNick shop for this and many other great cut files!

Thank you for stopping by!


HEY THERE September 3, 2017 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie here with a new layout that is all about my teenage son!.  I love my kids, but i find that it is easier to document my daughter, so this time,  I chose to create a page that combines the Positive One and Positive 3 Backgrounds to document my boy!

 

 

 I wanted something that will bring the eye to the picture, and at the same time will be graphic and simple.   The Positive One and Positive Three backgrounds were perfect for what i had in mind, even when the design changed a bit along the way.

 

 

 

 

Firstly, I isolated a single cross from both the files.  Then used the cross from the Positive One file to sketch some crosses on half of the page, and used the same design  (in three different sizes) to cut some crosses from vellum.  I proceeded to poke holes in the sketched designs, and used thread to back stitch the designs.

 

 

Next i used the Positive 3 cut file's isolated cross to cut some designs out of the papers from the Boys Front collection from Pinkfresh Studio.  Once everything was cut, then a bit of foam adhesive was used to attach the crosses just to half of the page, as if they all were leading to the picture.

 

 

 

After the graphic background, just a few more details around the picture complete the page.    I love the final look of the page, along with the contrast in dimension, and it all was created by using the simple designs of the two cut files.   That is why i love cut files!!!

 

Remember to check the JustNick store for these, and all the rest of cut files available.  All the designs are so versatile, and you can easily create unique pages with them.  I am always a comment away, if you have a question on how this came together.

 

See you all around!

 


A Different kind of School Layout - Rachel Lowe August 26, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick friends, today I have a school layout for you, well kind of!

I am not a fan of school photos I have to admit and with four children at different schools and therefore different coloured uniforms there is no way I am going to find a paper collection to deal with that dilemma lol!

Each year I go on the hunt for cool and unique school bag for my youngest (the older ones won't let me anymore) and so I decided to scrap this memory and the 2017 bag which I think is super cute!

I love geometric shapes and cut files on boy layouts and so this cut file was the perfect choice!

I have used a mixture of collections and gorgeous bits and pieces from my stash. I have gone for a minimalistic look to add to the dramatic effect of the cut file and the selected triangles I chose to back with patterned paper.

I have sewn randomly on the cut file to add definition. As you can see I chose well placed triangles to accomodate my photo placement and visual impact.

How cute is the bag! I love bears and I love this colour combination and hence why I kept it going through out my layout. I have journaled the little story behind this layout and added in a way I could embellish around so it became more of a feature than an after thought.

I have added wood veneer pieces in keeping with my theme, and oh how cute is the wooden bear! As always I have foam taped certain elements on page to add height and interest. I ted to always do this with paper stickers as I find them too flat for my liking.

I have finished this layout off with some enamel crosses, dots and puffy sticker arrow.

Here are some close up photos for you:

 

I enjoy being challenged with themed layouts and then thinking out side the square and adding a twist and that is what this layout is all about, a school layout with a twist!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and see you all soon!

 

 


Summer | Michelle Whorwood August 12, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone! Michelle here with a new summer filled layout to share with you today!  I really love creating summer layouts especially down here in NZ when it is actually Winter it makes me feel a lot warmer and keeps me sane until summer arrives for us again. Here is my layout using the 'Summer' cut file to create my title!

As you can see below the 'Summer' cut file set includes five different cuts including gorgeous sun rays and lots of fun words along the summer theme! But for me I really wanted to go large with my title and I enlarged it to fit the full width of the 12x12 cutting mat and cut it out in a subtle patterned paper by Pink Fresh Studio.  I then backed it on the soft buttery yellow cardstock as this colour just reminds me of sunny sunshine.  


Once I had decided that my title would sit across the page in the lower two thirds of my page I created some interest with a mixed media background and then tucked my photo in and slightly over the two MMs of SUMMER.  As the title is so large it doesn't matter that my photo slightly overlaps here as you can still make the the letters very easily.  I then created lots of little embellishing around my photo and also on the bottom part of the R to give it some balance with my bottom cluster, my photo cluster and then this finishes the visual triangle.  

Here are some close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my 'summery' layout today!


Live Today - Cathy Martin August 11, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone!  I can't believe we are almost halfway through August!  Where oh where has the summer gone.  Well I know for myself I am still going to be scrapping fun and bright layouts for just a little bit longer before I switch and start focusing on the awesomeness of autumn scrapping.  With that in mind this week is circles week and we are focusing on cut files that are circular.  This, for me, is seriously no problem, I LOVE all of Nicole's circular cut files!

For the layout I created I chose the Floral Ring 3 cut file, and I cut it out in a very primary, bright blue.  Now here is where the challenge is because this colour of blue is not one that I would usually use, but I really wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge as well as get a chance to use up products that would match well with the blue that I chose!

After much hmming and hahing and not being able to make a decision on patterned paper I finally was able to back the cut file and choose a background paper that really went well together.  I used products from Pinkfresh Studio and Pretty Little Studio to finish off the layout! 

Thank you all so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video to see how it all came together!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

 

 

 

 


Dreaming | Maryám Pérez July 16, 2017 07:00

Hello, JustNick friends! Maryám here to share another layout with you. For today's project, I decided to use a photo of my sister and I thought the Dream On collection from Pinkfresh Studio will work perfectly with the photo.

For the background, I used the Picnic blanket background cut file, and for the clouds, I only used the outline trace and instead of cutting I put a sketch pen, so in that way, I was able to add hand-stitching to them. At the end, I just added some extra stuff to embellish my page.

And... this is the result: 

Here are some close-ups:

Here are the cut files that I've used in this layout:

 I hope you liked my layout. If you have any questions just let me know in the comments below. 

Have a wonderful week!


Everyday Magic Layout by Rachel Lowe: July 2, 2017 07:00 7 Comments

Hello everyone and I hope you are all having a wonderful week end!

I am so excited to be apart of the JustNick DT and to share my very first layout.

I have used this stunning new cut file Behold Beauty, isn't it just stunning!

And here is how I used it on my layout.

I have used PinkFresh Studio Live More collection.

I have cut the floral piece twice, once in white cardstock and then another in my chosen patterned paper. I did this to create layers and height. I then dressed up my centres and added more leaves to create a cascading effect. Isn't it stunning against the marble effect background paper!

I then cut my photo into three strips for visual interest. I have foam taped my photo over the floral piece to add to the 3D effect. This photo is special as it is of three generations, me, my mother and my daughter, and this is why I scrap, to memory keep and ensure these photo moments do not pass undocumented.

So not to distract from the cut file I have placed my title under my photo and finished this layout off adding detail with clusters of embellishments.

Here are some close up photos for you:

 

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing what you create with this gorgeous Behold Beauty cut file.

 


Attitude is Everything | Michelle Whorwood June 19, 2017 07:00

Hi, Michelle here with a new layout!  Today, I was assigned a 'masculine' style layout showcasing the Just Nick Cut Files.  Here is my layout. 

I generally try and use a couple of different cut files on my layouts for interest and added layering.  I really loved the background patterned by Pink Fresh Studio which dictated my colour palette for this layout.  I then cut out the Starburst file on the blue patterned paper and I just love how the file consists of both negative stars and full stars and I have backed a few of the stars with patterned paper to as well to add more pops of colour!

I next went looking for a cut file that would work as my title.  I really liked the Purrfect cut file but obviously my layout doesn't have any cats on it but the 'Attitude is everything' saying worked with my layout of my son hanging out with mates at our caravan.  I love how the Just Nick cut files really can utilised for lots of different themes not just as in this case for the felines in our lives. 

Some close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my masculine layout today.  


All of Me Loves All of You February 3, 2017 06:00

Hey everyone!  Cathy here with a fun lovey dovey layout for you all.  I absolutely love the All of Me cut file and I knew immediately that I wanted to see it in black with gold ink splatters on it, so with that for the basis of my layout I set out to find a picture of my husband and I!  I ended up printing one that wasn't the best quality, but that I loved anyway, so I just kept it black and white and made it a very small photo, that way the title could really take centre stage.  I love the idea of adding other textures on my layouts so I used some beautiful striped ribbon to compliment my page.  I fussy cut out a cute little bird from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection.  I loved how well those Pinkfresh Studio hearts from the Indigo Hills collection matched with all my colours so I added lots of those too!  I absolutely love how well a tiny photo tucks in around my big title, it brings a feeling of cohesion and unity to all the elements going on in my layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video on my YouTube channel to see how this layout came together and to see what happens when you have a terrible accident while scrapping!

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new layout with you using the brand new and amazing Bits and Pieces Heart Background! This cut file would have to be one of my all time favourites from the awesome range of Just Nick cut files!

The Bits and Pieces Heart cut file is so effective no matter how you choose to use it, whether you choose to back each individual piece with different patterned papers or you could back it with the one patterned paper like I have done! 

I used one of the busy patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio 'Up in the Clouds' collection to back the heart with. I love how the busy paper is broken up with the different size pieces from the heart cut file. 

I added lots of extra Pinkfresh Studio goodies to this layout also including some of those awesome acetate words from the Life Noted collection and the rubber charms also from the Life Noted collection! I machine stitched through the acetate words to help hold them to the page! 

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! Check out the Just Nick store for loads new cut files Nicole has just uploaded plus all your favourites already in store too!

Happy cutting and creating!

Hello everyone! Donna here to share with you my take on the Pinkfresh-Just Nick team up!

I used the LIFE NOTED collection from Pink Fresh Studio

and the Doodle flowers set from Just Nick Studio store

I used watercolors, gelatos, Tombow markers and Promarkers to color the cut flowers. I also doodled some dots and little hearts using a black pen to make the flowers stand out over the light background

I used one of the papers in the collection where it has the word LIFE and placed that to the right side of the page. I wrote my journaling in between the letters and used the yellow alphas as subtitle.

All week long we will be hopping with the team from Pinkfresh Studios! Leave a comment HERE and you could win a goodie bag from Pinkfresh Studios - head over to the Pinkfresh Studio blog and leave a comment for a chance to win  $25 gift certificate to the JustNick Store!

Both winners will be drawn on Monday April 11, 2016. Good luck!

Be sure to stop by the JustNick Store to check out all the latest digital cut files.

That is all for me today, I hope you liked my page!

Hello friends!  Heather Leopard is here kicking off a few more days of the Pinkfresh / JustNick team-up.  I absolutely adore Pinkfresh's flair for design so I was elated to get to work with the Life Noted collection.

I love the pre-printed divided page design on this paper.  It took care of my background design work.

And yay for the lovely spring colors. I decided to mix the spring-like patterns with the Delicate Florals cut file, backing with fun designs from the collection.

I hope you are enjoying this team-up as much as we are.  Make sure to head over to the Pinkfresh blog to see how her creative team integrated JustNick's files into their creative process.
