It Won't Rain All The Time - Cathy Martin July 26, 2017 06:00
Hello hello hello! It's Cathy and I'm back showcasing another layout featuring one of Nicole's amazing cut files! I find that the trend of plus signs seems to come and go, but I for one am a big fan! I really loved all the Positive cut files in the shop, so I chose the Positive One file. I did a little revamping with the file while I was in the Silhouette software. I duplicated the file so that I could shrink it down and have lots of plus signs. I then deleted random signs here and there, just to add a bit of visual interest.
My next step was to back my pluses with lots of different patterned papers from my stash as well as some from 6x6 paper pads. I used a combo of newer papers from the Little by Little collection along with some papers that have been floating around my stash pile. I left some of the pluses blank and then put another piece of white card stock behind the whole thing. I added some details around the white ones with some ticking and then got to embellishing!
I am so flippin' happy with how this layout turned out. The story behind my layout is about my son and his dealings with expressing and recognizing his emotions, and I just love the juxtaposition of the happy plus signs with the overall story of the layout!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today!

Hi cut file fans,
it's Laureen here to share a brand new layout with you!
For this week the Just Nick Designers were each given a sketch from PageMaps and were asked to create a layout based on it - here is my sketch:
Isn't it super cool?! I loved the sketch a whole lot with all the circles and different elements. Now when it came to actually creating my page I spend hours over hours scrolling through my Just Nick Cut files to find one I'd like to use and that was the biggest struggle I had! After I finally found one, the page didn't took long at all - here it is:
I used the Going in Circles Background to mimic all the circles from the sketch and am really liking the way it looks!
I cut a piece of patterned paper, stitched down the edges and then placed my cut file on top of that using foam squares for a tiny bit of dimension.
After I had placed that the embellishing was easy peasy - just using some stickers, Thickers and florals from the Shimelle Little by Little Collection.
Now - I hope you feel inspired by the sketch and create something with it, there are so many possibilities. Imagine using a floral ring cut file and cutting that several times and then create your grid - PERFECT!
Happy crafting and have a great day!

Hello hello hello it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! I don't know about you but even though it's still bitterly cold and gloomy in my region of the world I can't help but long for the beautiful colours of spring! For my layout today I was inspired by all the fun and colourful scraps that I have in my stash. Some are relatively new and some are from years ago, but either way I loved combining them together to make this fun image! I used the Rosette Background 2, and originally I was using it as intended, as flowers, but once I was all done backing it I really loved how much it looked like wonky bubbles, so I decided to document my daughter's bubble blowing adventure last spring. Backing the cut file with multiple papers was a wee bit time consuming, but I just love the end result! Thanks so much for stopping by and if you go to my Youtube channel you can check out how I made my layout!

Hey everybody it's Cathy here, back with another layout for JustNick Studio and Scrapbook Circle! The Scrapbook Circle kit for March was loaded with bright colours and funky designs. I really wanted to showcase all of those fun papers and colours so I chose the dreamcatcher background 1. There were lots of awesome spaces to back with papers! I used a small star stamp to create a fun pattern around where my cut file would rest and then popped my file up on some foam for added dimension. Since all the products worked so perfectly together embellishing was a piece of cake! A big thank you to Nicole and Scrapbook Circle for this awesome team up!
Twins Game - Scrapbook Circle Day 2 March 07, 2017 07:00 1 Comment
Hello JustNick Studio friends! Marcia here today to share a layout I created with the fabulous March Scrapbook Circle kit and JustNick Studio digital cut files. All this week you can see inspiring projects from both design teams.
I think I squealed with delight when I opened up my box and saw products from the Shimelle's Little By Little collection, Amy Tangerine's On a Whim, and Paige Evan's Oh My Heart. I was dying to use the new Star Background 4 cut file. I thought it would be perfect for a sports layout and I have been wanting to scrap this picture of my daughter at a Minnesota Twins baseball game. Here is how my layout turned out ...
I cut the file knowing I wanted to put a 1/2" border around the edge using this colorful striped paper. Using the red from this same sheet of striped paper, I backed some of those star cutouts.
I even did some hand stitching with some red thread! Under my title I did a little journaling. I don't usually do handwriting on my layouts, but this kit came with a Pink Paislee stamp set so I could stamp the guidelines for my writing! I might be doing more handwriting on my layouts now. I used a lighter ink to stamp with so the emphasis would be on my journaling.
I think this is a new favorite cut file!
Here is the cut file I used today ...

I am up on the blog sharing a new quick and easy project with you!
I was assigned to create a project using a Background - last time I did a ton of stitching, so I decided to just back a cut file this time!
I used the Visual Effects background and delted two of the triangle portions and backed the open space with a wooden paper and my cut file work was done!!
The Shimelle paper with the flowers on it is just so beautiful, so I defintely needed to cut those out. I arranged them in a diagonal to cover up the edge of the cut file.
Seriously, this page came together in no time and I am loving it! The simplicity of it really makes me giddy for more quick and easy layouts.
What about you?
Have a great day,

Hi cut file fans - Laureen here with you today to share a new page with you!
I was assigned to use any background from the store and so I made a page using the Star Background 2.
Okay - this page was a pain to create! It took ages, I originally used a modified version of the Quilted Background and already backed that with Crate Paper Poolside and then I was stuck. I didn't like the embellishments to use alongside the paper and then wanted to use some of the Shimelle Starshine collection - didn't match at all but for whatever reason I adhered everything down. I was telling myself - and Elsie also did - that I might like it the day after - not the case! So I tried to take it all off, didn't work, because I had to use the strongest glue I had - duuh! I cut the entire middle cluster out and just decided to leave it and go back to it a different time.
Said done, probably two weeks later I desperatly wanted to finish the page and found the blue star constellation by Dear Lizzy in my stash and knew it was perfect for my Starshine cluster. I then cut the Star Background 2 out of plain white cardstock and originally wanted to back it with the paper which - again - I didn't like.
I then used it as a stencil with embossing paste and really like the texture it gives!
For my title I wanted to use the quote or song or whatever it is saying: I thank my lucky stars for you but didn't find anything like that in the store. I then grabbed the Simple Set Alphabet and Script Alpha 2 and made my own sentiment using a combination of the letters and a few accent stars.
Here are a few detail shots for you:

Not a Morning Person - Creative Scrappers Team Up July 21, 2016 07:00
Hi there Just Nick fans!
We were given this awesome sketch from the Creative Scrappers team to take inspiration from!
This is the July free cut file that we were to use with the sketch! Isn't it cool? I ungrouped the cut file and deleted some of the top rows so that it resembled the sketch a little better!
You can get it for free all month long until July 31st! Just put in this code at checkout: csfree
I have wanted an excuse to use those die-cuts and the acetate word for so long! One of my good friends sent me this photo to scrap and it was perfect to use for this layout! I mostly used the True Stories collection by Shimelle!
Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!
Dandelion WISHES April 28, 2016 07:00
Happy Friday eve everyone. Heather Leopard is here to put a little SPRING in your step...
Once I selected the photos I wanted, I designed the rest of the layout around the title. Usually my title is one of the last things I think about but for this, it was the first.
I created the word "dandelion" in Silhouette Studio using a free font I downloaded from the Internet called Modesty. For the larger WISHES word, I used the Shattered Alpha cut file and then backed it with coordinating papers.
With such a large, bold title, I decided to keep the rest of the layout a little more siple than I usually do, adding a few frames, rub-ons, chipboard and a little splatter mist.
Thanks for stopping by today. How do you feel about bold title?

Hey there friends!
I created a travel layout as soon as I saw the 'Around the World' cut file..... it went perfectly with the Starshine collection from Shimelle! I only used the plane from this set and cut it out on vellum.....
I absolutely love this Striped Alpha Cut file set! It looks great with a paper backed behind it for some extra pop of colour!
I added some embellishments, machine stitching and some splats of mist to finish off!
Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for all the awesome new cut files.........new ones are added all the time so check them out!
Happy cutting and creating!

The awesome Stone Lace background is in store now!
One of my favourite techniques is to back the Just Nick cut files with patterned paper to make the cut stand out!
I used the True Stories collection by Shimelle/American Crafts for this layout!
Happy cutting and creating!!
