Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. This week on the blog we are posting projects with the theme Thankful. I know with Thanksgiving approaching we are thinking about all the things we are thankful for; family, jobs, health ...  My hubby just had surgery recently to repair a hernia (nothing too serious). I am thankful that I have had this wonderful man by my side for 35 years so I decided to scrap one of our wedding photos. (Don't laugh too much about my 80's hair and hat. lol. I converted the photo to black and white so you can't tell that his tux is baby blue)

I used the new Rustic Floral Frame 2 and cut it out in a metallic gold to frame my photo. Then I added two of the new Rose Clusters backed with pretty pink pattern papers.

To add some depth, I used the Stems 2 digital cut file as a stencil behind the rose clusters as well as under some fussy cut flowers.

Here are the digital cut files I used this week...

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Did I get you thinking about what you are thankful for?


On The Hunt | Marcia Dehn-Nix April 20, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. With Winter hanging on here in Minnesota and 2 feet of snow on the ground I was desperately needing some sunshine ... even if it was just on my layout. I decided to scrap some older photos of my daughter hunting for Easter eggs on a beautiful Easter morning. Spring = sunshine + flowers. I think I have everything covered on this layout.

I love using a digital cut file as a stencil and decided to use the Let It Shine Background to create my sun. Some machine stitching added some texture and definition to the sun's rays.

I used some soft pastel pattern papers to back the Scribble Floral Background. What an abundance of beautiful Spring flowers!

I love these pics! My Naomi was so adorable in her Easter dress and bonnet.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I sure do hope Spring arrives here soon. Have a great weekend!


Fifth: Stencil Alphabet September 14, 2016 07:00

Hi there, Just Nick friends and fans!  It's Jaclyn joining you today, to share a page featuring the newest alphabet cut file in the shop: Stencil Alphabet.
I used the cut file to create a big bold title for my page documenting my oldest son's first day of school this year.  The alpha pairs well with a school themed design and makes quite a statement when it's sized to fit the width of the page.
I adjusted the sizing of each letter to just over 2.5"x 1.75", and cut them all out of kraft cardstock.  I backed each one, filling the negative space of the cut, with a different 'school themed' patterned paper.  Doing this not only reinforces the theme of my design but it also gives the title plenty of interest and presence.
A couple of the letters are mounted to the page with foam adhesive and they were all embellished with stamping, stickers and/or other bits and pieces.
This was a fun an easy cut file to work with.  I can see myself using it time and time again, simply by varying up the sizing and papers used, to create an entirely different design.  I hope you'll give it try and share with us your results!  Load it up to our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram with the hashtag #justnickstudio.

Forever Canvas November 27, 2015 07:00

Hi everybody,

I don't know about you but, I always feel like there are several weddings to attend during the holiday season. There truly is something magical about utilizing all the beautiful decorations and snowy backdrops for a ceremony. I need to be prepared and I've done just that by creating a canvas art project using two cut files from the shop. 

I'm going to walk you through my process a little bit and show you have I utilized these awesome cut files... on a canvas!

First, I love the heart background file. It's so pretty and I thought, how cool to use it as a stencil or mask! So, after prepping my canvas with a red watercolor wash, I laid out the cut out and spritzed some gold spray everywhere:

The gold spray is very watery and bled through a little bit. I could still make out the heart shape in the background but, had the idea to use a few of the cut out hearts as embellishments. So, I mixed some of the watercolor with modeling paste and went to town:

They needed something a little more so, I used some of my glimmer mist and added some sparkle. I don't know about you but, I really love getting messy with inks and the like. It can be so much fun!

After the canvas had dried, I arranged everything and then glued it down. I used Glossy Accents and the fine tipped nozzle worked like a charm. To complete the canvas, I used the word cut file Today/Always/Forever. Such a beautiful sentiment! I only utilized the outline of the words. There are so many possibilities with this particular cut file but, I really liked how it looks without all the middle shapes and such. Here is the final product:

I failed to mention this canvas is a 6x6. It really turned out so cute! Can you see the stencil showing through???

Thanks for swinging by today! Make sure you go check out the shop. There are so many awesome new designs popping up each week!
