JustNick Cut File Store

Made In The USA | Marcia Dehn-Nix June 02, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends, Marcia here today. All this week JustNick designers have been showcasing layouts using PageMaps sketches created by the wonderful Becky Fleck. Here is the sketch she gave me...

It's awesome, right!

There is a lot going on in the sketch, so I decided to use the left side of the sketch for my background cut file. I recently returned from a vacation in South Carolina and had lots of pictures from Patriots Point, so I opted to do a patriotic layout. It seemed fitting with Memorial Day just this past Monday. My guys really enjoyed visiting the USS Yorktown. I think they could have stayed there for hours.  I stuck pretty close to the PageMaps sketch. I did use a larger focal photo in the middle. Here is my layout...

I used a cut file called Ride the Wave. I resized it to fit on the left half of my layout. It reminds me of the American flag waving in the wind. My intent was to leave it red and white, but then decided to add some blue in the negative space. Some machine stitching reinforces the wave design.

Here is the cut file I used today...

If you are interested in my process video, here it is ...


Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other sketches from this past week and their coordinating layouts.


Pool Today | Words 4 and Ride the Wave Background | Michelle Whorwood May 29, 2017 06:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone, Michelle here with a new layout to share with you.  I am super excited about this one as it is one of my faves!   I have actually used two different files on this one being Words 4 and Ride the Wave Background.  Here is my layout and how I created it:

I really wanted to use the 'wave' background because my photos are all pool related.  But I wanted to create a grid style background so I replicated the cut file 4 equal times on white card stock and stitched it down in a grid.  I added some stitching to hold it down and also to give it some texture.  

I had about 3 or 4 photos of the kids jumping into the pool on our recent holiday and as they were quite busy on the busy background I decided to create a fun and funky title using the 'Today' from the Word 4 cut file and put my photos inside the framed word.  I really love how the coral card stock allows the blues and brightness of my photos pop on my page and it is a super easy technique to do! 

Here are some more close ups: 

 

 

 


Love You Bunches and Hello Cards August 15, 2016 07:00

Hello there!

I'm so happy to be sharing a couple of cards with you all today! Most cut files seem to be scaled for layouts... and I say, "Not so!" Shrink those cut files! And as Tim Gunn from Project Runway always says, "Make it work!" 

First, I have this lovely to share...

I used two cut files for this card. First, I sliced and shrunk the Quilted Circle background and used it as a layer for the base. I saw the flowers in the Floral and Fauna cut file collection and knew I wanted to use a couple to layer.

I think it worked perfectly! Also, sequins are not my go to but, how easy and fun they were to cluster at the center of that flower!

Here is the next card...

Before I forget, I'm using the Happy Place collection from Fancy Pants Designs. So fun!

Okay, for this next card I utilized another background cut file. I went white on white and layered a piece of patterned paper between. I like how the paper peeks just a little bit behind the cut file. It creates a fun movement for this card and doesn't take away from the overall design.

And that's a wrap!

Thanks for swinging by today! Now, go shrink those cut files and make some cards!

Cut files used: Quilted Circle Background, Floral and Fauna 1 and Ride the Wave Background
