Hi JustNick friends! It's Monique here today with already the 7th free cut file of the "12 Days of Giveaways"!! Today the giveaway is this awesome snowflakes cut file: "Snowflakes 5": 

I decided to use one of the snowflakes as the background for my layout (the one at the bottom left side) and created this page using an older collection from Bella Blvd:  "Christmas Cheer":

Here are a few close-ups of my page:

I cut the snowflake from the "Daily Details" sheet, a sheet full of different colored snowflakes and love how it turned out. 

I love background cut files and often use a "normal sized" cut file and enlarge it so I can use it for my background, like I did here.

Winter Wonderland | Laureen Wagener January 03, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!

I hope you had a few fun days and celebrated the arrival of the new year safe and sound!

Today I get to share my first layout of the new year and it is a winter themed one, that I am IN LOVE with!

I already told you about our seasonal layout frame that I create layouts for every couple month and for this seasonal frame I made a new layout.

I used the beautiful Snowflake cut files from the shop and cut them out of frosty blueish papers. I also printed a large DIN A4 photo that I took when it snowed like crazy in December.

The snowflakes cut out beautifully and make such a nice border around my picture and frame it.

I stitched around the entire photo to secure the snowflakes and give it a nice finishing touch!

Have a great day,

Laureen

Snow Day | Maryám Pérez December 31, 2017 07:00

Hello Everyone! Today is the last day of the year and I'm so happy to back sharing a new layout using the wonderful JustNick Cut files. 

For today's project, I'm using the Snowflakes Cut File Set. This time I was inspired by one of the layouts from Paige Evans where she created a big snowflake with sequins. I took that idea and I created my own layout using sequins and a cut file.

I made 3 snowflakes. The first thing I did was cut the snowflakes using my Silhouette Cameo, after that, I adhered all of my sequins following the design of the snowflake. Once I have that part done, I decided to add some stitching so I used the little holes in the sequins as a guide and I stitched through them.

Here is my layout:

I hope you liked this project. Let me know if you have any questions. I'll be really happy to answer them.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!


Photo Embroidery Hoop! | Morgan Langley December 19, 2017 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am showing a project that is perfect if you need a thoughtful handmade gift to give for Christmas! I used the "Snowflakes 2" and "Holiday Tags" cut files! 
            
To start I got my embroidery hoop ($.97), fabric ($1), elastic ($1), and felt sheets ($.23) at Walmart. Then I opened and loosened my hoop, laid the elastic across where I wanted it and then placed the fabric on. I closed my hoop and pulled the fabric and elastic tight. Then, print your pictures!
These felt flowers are my favorite part and they are super easy to make! First start with the middle part of the flower cutting a strip and then cutting strips all the way down. 
Then fold it into a circle and add some hot glue. Then add your petals! Depending on how large you want your flower is how long to make the middle of the flower and how big you cut your petals! 
Then add layers of petals to make it look more full! 
For the leaves I cut the shape and then add some hot glue to the tip and fold it. 
I also add little felt roll ups, (buds maybe?) to add texture. You just cut a strip that tapers a little and then roll and glue! 
I cut my snowflakes from white and blue card stock and they really helped to fill in the extra space tucking then between the elastic and under the photos. 
I added the joy tag layered with a patterned paper circle and a felt circle connected with bakers twine. I also tied a red bow to the top of my hoop and glued a button where the elastic pieces met. I added pom pom ribbon along the hoop for added fun! 
Thank you for stopping by today! There are so many ways to use these beautiful cut files and so many projects to create with these felt flowers! Merry Christmas and happy crafting! Follow me on instagram @morewithmorganl and follow Just Nick @justnickstudio

Happy Saturday, Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn here to share my latest scrapbook page featuring a bevy of Just Nick designs.

For some reason, the sticky summer heat has me digging into to my winter photos.  I guess I'm looking to escape the humidity and hot temperatures, even in my craft room! 

As I pull out these pictures, I'm naturally digging into Just Nick's holiday and winter themed cut files from last year, to create the perfect pairing.  It's been fun to rediscover many of these wintery designs.

The snowflakes cut file has always been a favorite of mine.  I love that it includes a combination of basic, graphic designs alongside frilly and intricate snowflakes.  I varied the sizes of the flakes and cut them all out from an ombre blue patterned paper.  Adorning the centers of the snowflakes with sequins and epoxy dots provides the perfect finishing touch.

 

I also snuck in the snowflake background along the left edge of the page.  I sized it to 12" tall and cut it out of white cardstock.  Laying it atop of a white background creates a subtle reinforcement of the page theme, in addition to some added texture.

My page would not be complete without scanning the Just Nick word and alpha cut files for just the right typography and title.  I combined the word 'dude' from sk8er and 'this' from summer cards to finish off my page.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  I hope this weekend finds you buried in cut files and craftiness.

 


February GDT and our monthly FREEBIE! February 12, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

It is time for us to share a guest with you on the blog and today we are joined by the talented Adrienne Alvis as our Guest Designer for February!

Hello! My name is Adrienne Alvis and I was born and raised in Southern Illinois and grew up around my family’s farm.  My mother was always sewing, making crafts, and taking craft classes, but I didn’t discover my crafty side until after I had my youngest son, almost 9 years ago.  I started creating traditional layouts, but soon found a love for making cards, mini albums, home decor projects, and most recently, pocket page scrapbooking.  I am currently designing for Freckled Fawn, Hip Kit Club, and Pinkfresh Studio and have been on many other design teams over the past few years.  I’ve been married to my husband for 10 years now and we have three beautiful and spirited kiddos, Garrison (13), Jubal (9), and Avery (6). Of course, my children are the main source of my scrappy subject matter and I love how documenting their every move and milestone helps satisfy my creative urges.  Other than paper-crafting I like to read, run, watch movies in bed, listen to music, travel, and work on DIY home projects. You can see more of my work on my blog or follow me on FacebookPinterest, and I'm also a huge Instagram fan so feel free to check out my feed. I'm so excited to be a guest designer here at JustNick and share my work with all of you

We asked Adrienne to create a page using any cut files from our store and look what she created:

For this layout I used the Snowflakes cut file and the "Love" sentiment from the freebie cut file to create my page. I resized and cut out the snowflakes from a piece of white card stock and then layered it over a sea foam green piece of card stock.

I cut the snowflakes out again using an aqua colored card stock and layered several of the aqua ones on top of the cut out pieces from the white card stock. I used the "Love" sentiment as part of my title and placed the "Lego" foam letters on top of the heart. I really like the contrast the black and white elements gave my page and the snowflakes were the perfect motif for the photos of my daughter holding her Frozen Lego castle she built all by herself.

As Adrienne mentioned, we sent her a cut file designed just for her based on what sort of files she likes... and this is what she created with it combined with our Brick Circle background! It's amazing!

For this layout I used the Brick Circle cut file and the SWAK sentiment from the freebie cut file. I enlarged the brick circle and placed various pieces of patterned paper under each brick. I added several of the SWAK sentiments and sized them to fit inside of the bricks.

 

I used black thread and my sewing machine to stitch around the entire brick circle and layered several chipboard stickers around my photos to help draw the eye around the circle. I printed my photos off in black and white for added contrast and to coordinate with the black elements of my page

Thanks to Adrienne for guesting for us today!!! I just love what she did with our cut files!

Let It Snow And Best Day Ever January 25, 2016 07:00

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing two layouts using three Just Nick cut files.  I also wanted to show you how to use the Little Black Dots Background Cut File as a "stencil" in two different techniques.

For the first layout, I cut out the Little Black Dots Background Cut File with my Silhouette Cameo on a 12 X 12 sheet of white card stock.  I used the negative space and dabbed the inside of the circles with an embossing dauber and then added some embossing powder in aqua, navy, and gold and heat set it with my heat gun until they were dry.  I added some of the positive circles from the cut file of the white card stock and adhered them to the background to give more texture and dimension.  I thought it made it look like snow.  I also cut out some snowflakes from the Snowflakes cut file in white vellum and aqua dot vellum, adhered them to the background and added some sequins or flair buttons to the center of the snowflakes.  I also cut out my title, the Best Day Ever cut file and added a flair button to the center of the letter D and a sequin to the center of the letter "A".  

I really had fun with this layout.  

For the second layout, I cut the Little Black Dots Background on another sheet of white card stock and used it as a stencil with some modelling paste.  Once the modelling paste was dry, I spritzed it with some Heidi Swapp Gold Colorshine Mist. I wanted to achieve the look of snow and give the layout some dimension.  Then I added my photos and patterned papers on top and cut out some vellum snowflakes on my Cameo with the Snowflake cut file on white vellum and aqua dotted vellum and added a sequin to the center of them.

 

 

Cut files make great stencils for mixed media projects.  I hope I inspired you to use your cut files in a different way.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out these and many more cut files in the Just Nick Store.

holiday tags. December 22, 2015 07:00

Hello, Diana here!  Holiday season is in full swing with all the excitement and busyness that goes with it!  I challenged myself creating fun tags using both older and brand new cuts from the JustNick store!

The cool thing about these tags is that not only can they work for gifts but also be used as ornaments on your tree!  Here are the different tags I created closeup:

The cuts that I used were:

Scallop flowers

Joy Background

Holiday Words

Holiday Cards 1

and a sneak peak at Snowflakes coming December 26.

As you can see cuts can be manipulated (such as the background cut) to a different shape.  In that case from square to rectangle and smaller. (from 12x12 to 3x4).  I am looking forward to giving these little tags away--they are little projects made with a lot of love!
