I'm super super super excited to be joining the Just Nick Studio Design Team. I have been using cut files for awhile now and I just love how they add extra dimension to my layouts and that there are a such a variety of different ways you can include them in scrapbooking.
I am a stay at home mum to 3 gorgeous kids, Liam aged 12, Taylor Grace who is 5 and Aimee Rose who is 4 and I live just north of Auckland in New Zealand with my hubby Gary. I have been scrapbooking for almost 10 years now and started when my eldest was about 2. Being creative and recording our memories keeps me sane and if I go too long without creating a layout then I get really grumpy! You only need to ask my kids what is my favourite thing to do and they will respond 'Scrapbooking'. I'm super lucky I get to spend some of the time when my kids are at school and kindergarten to spend time creating and of course SHOPPING for new gorgeous supplies too. When I am not scrapbooking I enjoy spending time with my young family and hubby - we go to our caravan at the beach in the summer and we have holidays to Fiji coming up soon as I hate the cold winter here in NZ. I share my scrapbooking layouts on my blog here and also on instagram here
Here is my first layout:
I used the Let it Shine Background cut file as my background and cut this out on patterned paper and then added a white cardstock circle with Right Now on it as it fitted the selfies I took of myself a couple of weeks ago and I liked how it created a centre piece on my layout.
Some close ups:
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today - I am looking forward to sharing more of my layouts with the Just Nick cut files.
Have a good one!

Welcome to WORD week! All week long, the Design Team will be sharing projects using various "word/phrase" cut files from the store! First up is Diana Waite!
I really like how the O of now doesn't have a center--I decided to put flair in the middle to create that center part of the O. I also like that the title is already welded together for me, I get to choose the size that I want it to be! I wanted it to be larger and then layer other cuts underneath of it. I chose to used both the Radioactive and the Borders 1 cuts. As you can see I decided to paint with mist both my title and radioactive cuts :
Thank you for visiting the blog today! We would love to see your creations using JustNick cuts please feel free to share them on our Facebook page and tag us on Twitter with #justnickstudio Instagram with @justnickstudio.

Good morning! All week we are sharing some projects using circular cut files from the store!
I chose this fun design to use on my page:
I decided to go big with this design for the title of my page.
I think the big design makes a big impact even though it is just cut from some simple cardstock.
I also used another circle cut file that will hit the store this weekend... wanna sneak??
Simple Circle Background ;)
Stay tuned this week on the blog for a guest + a freebie too!

Good Monday morning! It's Jaclyn here and I'm so excited to be sharing my first official Just Nick design team project with you today!
I try to do a highlight style page for each of my kids albums, as they turn another year older. It's a fun way to include snippets of their interests, extracurriculars and bits of their personality in their scrapbooks. The Right Now cut file was a fitting title and starting point for my page about my son Justin, at six years old.
I love the mix of type in this cut file - it includes both a clean type and funky script. The original design includes a circle around the entirety of the design. However, since I knew I'd be using a lot of linear elements on my page, I opted to remove the circle and simply cut the words.
Once sized, I cut the title two times - once out of cream cardstock and a second time from gray cardstock. I layered the two cuts together, slightly offsetting the top piece, to create some added shadow and dimension.
The majority of my page is pretty busy and colorful, so I opted for a kraft background to ground the whole design. With the cardstock background in place, the margins of my page still created a little more white space than I was going for. To solve that problem, I cut some stars from the All Boy cut file out of the same kraft cardstock and layered them over the background piece to create a tone on tone effect. To make those diecut stars pop just a little bit more, but still not overwhelm the remainder of the design, I colored them with a layer of Wink of Stella brush pen glitter. The end result turned out to be subtle but cool!
Thanks for joining me for my first post on the Just Nick blog today. I'm already working on and brainstorming lots more projects to share with you in the future!
