Hello Imperfectly Perfect | Patricia Roebuck July 8, 2019 07:00
Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be joining the JustNick team with all the amazing designers, and especially, Nicole! Nicole and I have met a few times at CHA and Creativation and have even been on different design teams together. I'm also excited because I know just how talented Nicole is and have seen her shop grow so much. She has an amazing eye for style and detail.
With today's post, I'll introduce myself a little more and share a page I created. I still create 12x12 and 8.5x11 layouts occasionally, but my favorite way to document these days is in a Traveler's Notebook or a 6x8 format. I have been designing for manufacturers and kit clubs since 2012. After changes to a direct-sales company I was exclusively working with part-time from 2016 to 2018, I am back to designing more as a hobby again for myself and teams again.
After cutting the frames in white cardstock, I picked three to layer over my pattern paper background. Pulling from the design of the hearts from the Infinity Hearts Frames, I continued that theme by cutting Basic hearts to layer over and under my frames.
I used small alpha stickers from Citrus Twist using a saying I heard from our pastor. I will never be perfect, always striving to improve, to change, to grow. It's a saying that motivates you to keep going. I layered embellishments over the clusters of the hearts with a larger embellishment by the photo.
I cut out two of the images from the Simple Scallop Strips, one in pattern paper and the other in white cardstock to layer. I trimmed them down, stapled them, and foam adhered them to my page. I used another trimmed down strip to add to my top card on the right side of my page along with stamping, which is 'perfect' for my imperfection ;)
For the bottom card, I did some journaling about myself. These are random current things about myself. I used an alcohol marker to highlight a few words to add more color to the card and added lots of enamel shapes as bullets, as well as sprinkling them throughout the entire spread for more texture and color.
Thank you so much Nicole for having me, and thank you to everyone for stopping by!
Grateful | Majken Pullin November 23, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick fans! Majken here with you again today, and this week I'm sharing a layout that expresses how grateful I am for my two kids. Both had health issues when they were born, and because we are past all of the problems now, it makes me even more grateful.
I have used three cut files in my layout...can you spot them?
After cutting out the Grateful word and backing them with patterned paper, I popped up the title with 3D foam tape. I love adding that extra depth to layouts.
My collection came with a lot of great floral ephemera, and I added to that with the Flowers 6 file.
I also wanted to add some extra interest to the right of the aqua paper edge, so I cut out the scallop strip and adhered it before machine stitching.
I love all the ways you can use cut files with your projects, including around your journaling like I did below.

Thanks so much for joining me on the JustNick Studio blog today. I hope you have a wonderful week, and for those in the US, enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here today to reveal a layout I recently designed using two JustNick cut files on the one design. Very much inspired by the floral patterns on my layering elements, I opted to use one cut from the Sweater Weather file and the other from the Simple Scallop Strips file.
Cut in black cardstock, these cut files were absolutely perfect as extra layering items to bring everything together. YAY!
Now it's your turn to use different cut files on one project. And with all the awesome files available in the JustNick store, the possibilities are limitless! Have FUN and happy scrapping!
Cards to Celebrate October 9, 2015 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! Marcia here today.
I have a couple cards to share with you for celebrations. The first one I created with the Lemon Slice digital cut file.
I was eyeballing this cut file when I created my last layout using the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss collection. I kept thinking, "You Put the Lime in the Coconut"... and so the lemon slice became a lime slice. Yes, I know its Fall, but the weather here is still surprisingly warm. I'll take those warm days without complaining because all too soon the snow will be flying here. Here is my card...
I cut the lime twice, once with pattern paper and once with watercolor paper that I then painted a lime green. This way I could swap out parts and make 2 limes.
Birthday cards are by far the cards I make most often. Here is my card...
I decided to create a cake for those candles to sit on and decorate it with the scallop strips. I used the Celebrate sentiment from the same cut file.

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here today to share the most recent layout I've created using some of Nicole Nowosad's fabulous JustNick cut files. And yes, this time around I've incorporated not one, not two, but THREE of her awesome cut files on one design. With any further adieu, here it is:
Can you see the cut files in action? Look a little closer... Closer... ;) Yes, that's right! I used the Basic Hearts, Ink Splats, and Simple Scallop Strips files. Basic Hearts? Yes, I promise, one of them is there... cut in that wood grain patterned paper, I opted to hide the "heart" form per say behind my layered photo cluster and use it as a funky background piece instead. Totally created the retro feel I was looking for - yes, that's me on that photo, way back in 1984 when I lost my first tooth! The Ink Splats were cut from the crossword grid patterned paper and the scallops from that blue metallic paper - which is a flopportunity at its best - I didn't cut the scalloped border using the right setting, but ended up loving it anyway when it created a neat score line through the cut. Wanna see up close? Ta-da!
Keep on tuning in to see what the other members of JustNick's design team come up with! And have a peek in the JustNick store - Nicole is rocking it with awesome new files uploaded to the store on a weekly basis. The possibilities are endless and it adds a touch of whatever you need to any scrappy project.
Guest Designer Audrey Yeager + a freebie! July 17, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
We welcome Audrey Yeager to the blog today as our Guest Designer for July!
We knew we had to ask Audrey to GDT for us when we saw her great projects at My Scraps and More!
I am a thirty something stay-at-home mom to my kindergartener and pre-schooler. I started scrapbooking around 2005, although I have been “crafty” my entire life, dabbling in different crafts here and there. In 2007 I discovered the online world of scrapbooking, which totally changed the way I scrapbook. Since then, I’ve been on several teams for kit clubs, manufacturers, and challenge blogs. In January of 2014, I took over ownership of an online retail scrapbook store called My Scraps & More. I have an entire store in my basement, and it allows me the best of both worlds to work part time from home in the store and spend time with my kids, too! (Not to mention I get to scrap with ALL THE THINGS!)
I love to scrap about our everyday moments and try to record all those little things that are said and done. I’m also so glad that we live in a place like upstate NY where we experience every season because I love being able to change up my products and inspiration from one season to the next!
I love how scrapbooking can remove me from anything else I may have on my mind, and just take me to a place where all I think about are colors, patterns, and the memories behind this photo. I also love the social part of it, too, in going to crops and retreats, and the online support and camaraderie!
In addition to scrapbooking, I love to quilt and sew, garden, play volleyball, and watch movies and sci-fi TV series!
We asked Audrey to create a few projects using our cut files and look at what she sent us!
I used the Brushstrokes cut file from the store and cut different "strokes" from different colored papers. I layered the stoke cuts in a vertical line behind my photo. I cut the Simple Scalloped Strips file from white cardstock and added small bits to the top and bottom of my photo as a little border.
We also asked Audrey what type of file she would like to use and she asked for a lake inspired cut file! This is what we sent her:
Check out what Audrey did with this file:
I used the waves from the freebie file and cut them in different sizes. I cut them from apiece of paper that had an ombre pattern to it so that the bigger waves were on darker paper, and the smaller waves were on lighter paper. For the title, I cut the words "fishing" and "lake" from white paper and inked it with navy ink to add a bit more contrast.
Thanks for sharing your great projects with us Audrey!
To follow Audrey and check out more of her work, here is where you can find her:
If you like the Lake Life Freebie - you can download it in the store for a limited time!
Just add the item to your cart and use the code: lakelife at checkout until midnight July 31, 2015 to get this file for free!
After July, the file will still be available in the store, it just won't be free :)
Loving Life June 26, 2015 07:00
Hello JustNick friends!
Marcia here today. I have a couple of layouts to share with you today because I have been having so much fun with the JustNick cut files. Did you know Nicole keeps adding more files every week! I see something new and want to create something with it right away, lol.
On this first one I used the Simple Scallop Strips above the photo. But the start of this layout is that Crazy Daisy Background cut file. I first used a black Silhouette pen on the cut file, then I went back and cut portions of it again in different pattern papers. The sketch pen marks are my guide for placing my pattern papers.
I also used the Life cut file for my title. I love the scripty writing.
This next layout I created for Cocoa Vanilla but I love it so much I wanted to share it with you here too. That XOXO background cut file is fabulous! On this layout I cut just the outside with vellum. Then the XOXO background was cut from black cardstock. This way I could layer my cuts, placing sequins underneath.
My last layout was also created for Cocoa Vanilla using the All Boy cut file.
I arranged the words where I wanted them on this layout and cut them directly out of my pattern paper. Then I cut the title again from black cardstock. I placed various pattern papers behind the cuts with the black lettering on top. It's a really eye catching title!
I hope I have inspired you to try a JustNick cut file or two :)
Thanks for stopping by.
