You Make My Heart Smile | Marcia Dehn-Nix September 07, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick Studios friends!

Marcia here today. This week we are focusing on using the Words/Phrases in the JustNick Studio store. There are so many awesome phrases that could be used for titles. I wanted to scrap this fabulous photo of my son. Weekend vibes gave him such a great smile. I decided to use the You Make My Heart Smile cut file because seeing him smile makes me so happy.

Here is a closer look at my title. I cut it out twice, once with my pattern paper and again with a black cardstock. Layering the two really helps make that title pop.

Behind the title you can see the Star Background 5 digital cut file. I love stars for my guy layouts and the circles here repeat the circle pattern in the pattern paper on the left side of my layout. Those rings are delicate, be extra careful removing it from your mat.

Here are the digital cut files I used today ...

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have some fantastic weekend plans!

Hey there friends,
Zsoka back with you today sharing a new layout.
As I was browsing the cut files, I came across the Star Background 5 cut file that reminded me of the Texas star.

Since we were on holiday in Texas, I knew I'd have plenty of photos I can use with this. I chose one I took in Fort Worth where we went to see the cattle drive and the Cowboy Museum Hall of Fame. Which is when my kid decided he absolutely needed to be a cowboy ha! So we bought a hat and a bandana which is what he is showing off here.
I went through my stash and picked out a few old papers and embellishments from various Fancy Pants Designs collections: Everyday Circus, Nautical and Making Waves, because these collection have red and navy in them. I used textured white card stock for my cut file and backed it randomly with patterned paper.
For my title I used pre-cut alphas from Fancy Pants, adhered them to white cardstock and fussy cut out with a small white border. I did this for two reasons, this makes them sturdier and also, they stand out more from the background.

I layered some tissue paper and project life cards behind my photo and also added a couple of ephemera pieces on my photo. Some are older stash items, a couple are from the new Fancy Pants' Dream Big collection.


I also wanted to add the little clip we got at the information office in Fort Worth. I cut off the pin in the back because I couldn't have laid down the layout flat otherwise, then just adhered it to my photo.
To finish off my layout I added a couple of buttons in matching colors and splattered some navy spray ink around the page.


I hope I could inspire you in some way today!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today but sadly its my last post as part of the Just Nick team. It's always sad to say goodbye but its time for some new, fresh ideas and faces! 

This week our theme is to 'Make It Masculine' so I created a layout about my eldest son who thinks he is a rockstar at age 11!

I wanted to use some of the newest cut files just recently added to the Just Nick store...I decided to use the Rockstar title and the treble clef symbol from the Rockstar cut file set and I also used the new Star Background 5!

I used some Bella Blvd products, mostly the Alex collection plus some other bits that I have had for ages! The black puffy star is an Amy Tangerine one and the black and white phrase stickers are by Tim Holtz.

The background is a transparency that I have machine stitched to the white cardstock, I did think about adding some star confetti behind the transparency so it becomes a shaker style layout but I thought it may have ended up looking a little too busy! 

That Rockstar flair is from D-Lish Scraps, a small embellishment store in Australia...I love their flair buttons so much! They always seem to have the perfect ones that suit my boys and my layouts!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today and in the past, I have really appreciated everyone's support with my layouts that I have created for Just Nick Studio! Thank you so much to Nicole and the rest of the team for having me, I will miss this team so much!

Happy creating and see you all around scrapping land!

Tarrah x
