Summer | Michelle Whorwood August 12, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone! Michelle here with a new summer filled layout to share with you today!  I really love creating summer layouts especially down here in NZ when it is actually Winter it makes me feel a lot warmer and keeps me sane until summer arrives for us again. Here is my layout using the 'Summer' cut file to create my title!

As you can see below the 'Summer' cut file set includes five different cuts including gorgeous sun rays and lots of fun words along the summer theme! But for me I really wanted to go large with my title and I enlarged it to fit the full width of the 12x12 cutting mat and cut it out in a subtle patterned paper by Pink Fresh Studio.  I then backed it on the soft buttery yellow cardstock as this colour just reminds me of sunny sunshine.  


Once I had decided that my title would sit across the page in the lower two thirds of my page I created some interest with a mixed media background and then tucked my photo in and slightly over the two MMs of SUMMER.  As the title is so large it doesn't matter that my photo slightly overlaps here as you can still make the the letters very easily.  I then created lots of little embellishing around my photo and also on the bottom part of the R to give it some balance with my bottom cluster, my photo cluster and then this finishes the visual triangle.  

Here are some close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my 'summery' layout today!


Hello Summer Mini Album | Jennifer McMurtrey July 22, 2017 07:00

Hello JustNick friends! It's Jen today sharing a 4 x 6 summer-themed mini album created using several - okay, make that a lot of - designs from the Just Nick Cut File Store and a mix of collections from Simple Stories.

First is the cover - this was created using a photo overlay with alphabet stickers stitched on for the title. For a bit of texture and color, I added a strip of t-shirt and a piece of ribbon from my stash. 

The second page is one of my favorites - it uses the Sunray Background cut file, which I sized down before cutting on my Silhouette.

Prior to cutting the Sunray Background in half, I machine stitched each of the rays and around the sun. Next, cut the sun in half, put both sides together, and sewed along the edge to create a pocket. I then used a journaling card to jot down some memories and placed it inside the pocket.

The next page uses the Summer Words and Beach Umbrella Background cut files that are attached to a 4 x 6 piece of patterned paper.

Up next are a couple of smaller photos on one page with more stitched cut files on the opposite side using the Summer, Summer Fun, and Beach Umbrella Background files. It is hard to see in the photo, but I cut a palm tree using another acetate photo overlay and it is behind the sun.

My idea for this album began with the File Folders cut file which this page uses. Here, I have added several more photos with die cuts, stickers, and the beach ball from Summer Fun.

Two more pages follow that use more patterned papers, stickers, and die cuts with stitching.

 

Here is another photo and several cuts from Summer Words, Summer Fun, and the File Folders cut files.

Thanks for making it this far . . . we are almost to the end.

This page has more machine stitching with stickers and die cuts the "fun" from Summer tucked behind the photo.

Here is another photo on the left with the On an Adventure cut file stitched to a piece of vellum. 

Here I machine stitched a portion of the Wave Border 2 file on a 4 x 4 piece of patterned paper.

Just inside the back cover I used more of the Wave Border 2 behind my photo, which is attached to another 4 x 6 folder from File Folders.

Last is the back cover, which uses a 4 x 6 patterned paper and a photo overlay for added protection.

Thank you for sticking with me to end of this very long post. Please be sure to visit the JustNick blog daily for tons of inspiration from the design team.


Summer | Niki Rowland July 21, 2017 07:00

Hi! Niki back with you today with another bright and summery layout I've created using the 'Summer' cut file from the store.
For my layout I have used the SUMMER word file but was also totally inspired by the Sunshine sun-burst file within this set too. Instead of cutting it, I drew a sunburst onto my white card and coloured it in using yellow and orange water colour paint. This ended up being the basis of my layout.
I cut the word SUMMER on my Silhouette from white card, and backfilled it with as many bright, bold and busy patterns as I could - I do love a bright layout!
I have put together a process video which shows how I made it,
please go ahead and watch below
I added flicks of water colour paint to my starburst and once dry, added faux stitching with a grey pen. I had two reasons for this - first, that the starburst looked like it needed a little extra definition, and second, that my pencil lines were really showing through the yellow paint!
I raised my title on foam pads and used stickers from the Summer Dreams sticker sheet to add embellishments to my layout. I also used a number of other embellishments including washi tape stickers, chipboard words and phrases, sequins and enamel dots.
I'm really happy with how my layout turned out. Some of my favourite cut files to use are open-alphabet fonts so the word SUMMER from the Summer cut file set was perfect for me.
Happy scrapping xx

Happy Monday scrappers! Nicole here with a fun summer layout... I don't know about you, but it's been a crazy winter in Maryland! Last month, when I created this layout, it was in the 60's all weekend. On the 20th of February! Naturally, I was in the mood to scrap a summer layout. LOL.

I used three different cut files and Simple Stories' You  are here collection for this layout (Arrows 3, Summer Words, Sunny Days). I also used some of my Altenew stamps to create a fun geometric flower and a smaller flower to add to the "relax" die cut circle. 

Here are a few closer photos of my layout. I love all the layering on this layout! 

Products Used: Patterned Paper, Stickers: Chipboard Frame: Enamel Dots, Clear Stickers: Die-cuts: Simple Stories, Stamps: Altenew, Digital Cutfiles: Just Nick Studio (Arrow 3, Summer Words, Sunny Days).

Thank you for visiting today!

Let's Go Play - JustNick & Jillibean Soup Team Up! August 26, 2016 07:00 5 Comments

Hey everyone it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout, this time using the amazing JustNick Studio cut files and products from Jillibean Soup

 

I love this team up and had so much fun creating a cute layout using the Jillibean Soup Mushroom Medley collection and the Scallop cut file!  The Mushroom Medley collection has so many cute and fun elements, it's perfect for outdoor layouts, seasonal layouts, or any type of layout actually!  I loved the masculine colours in the collection and I decided I back one of Nicole's cut files with as many patterned papers as I could!

   I used a fun picture of my youngest as I found it really matched well with the collection.  I scoured over all the cut files in the shop and I eventually decided I wanted to do a scallop background.  I know many would consider scallops to be a bit girly but I loved how they added a feeling of motion to the layout, and since that was what I was trying to get across they went perfectly!  I also have a process video so don't forget to check that out to see how I made my layout!

No Rain No Rainbows August 09, 2016 05:46

Hey everyone, it's Cathy, and I'm back with another layout!  This time I decided to use two cut files for my layout, the first one is No Rain No Rainbows, and the second is the Confetti background.  I wanted to created a rainfall effect on my background and the Confetti background did the job perfectly!  I backed the cut file with a piece of multi-colour paper and I really love the effect.  It almost looks like a shower of jellybeans!  For my title I used the Rainbow cut file and painted it a variety of colours using my watercolours.  I then added white and black splatters and outlined the file to really make it pop off the page!  I kept the embellishments minimal since I didn't want to compete with my awesome title and rain effect!  I love how bright and cheery this layout turned out and I am super excited to see what other cut file combinations I can come up with using the Just Nick files!  Have an awesome day!

Here are the cut files used for this project!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video!


Cool Summer Lovin' April 22, 2016 07:39

Happy Friday!!!   Today I am sharing with you a fun summer page using the "UPC" cut file from the store!  I just LOVE this file....there are so many possibilities!  Make it big...make it small....layer things in the strips....
https://justnick.myshopify.com/collections/all/products/upc-background
I used a lot of things from my stash paired with some of the new Dear Lizzy Happy Place on this page.    
I layered the UPC cut file to the left of the page, and the strips were the perfect size to stamp some summer sentiments with my roller stamp.
The bubbles were fun to fussy cut from paper!  I also added some stitching the help ground everything together.
And some fun die cuts and 3x4 cards layered together can make a simple title!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Friday!  It's Jaclyn here today, to round out the last of the summer-y themed projects on the blog this week. 

Summer for me and my kiddos means countless hours at the local community pool, so it was an obvious choice for me to scrap some of those memories.  I've been eyeing the Marquee Alpha for awhile.  Once I saw Nicole's page that she shared on the blog on Monday, I knew I'd need to give it a go! 

It was just the pop I needed to draw some serious attention to my title, amongst a page with lots of photos and lots of journaling. 

Isn't the detail in this font amazing?  Even when it's sized down to just an inch and a quarter high, as I've done for my page title, it still makes a strong impact on the page.

To add even more dimension to these fun title letters I cut one set of each letter from my pattern paper and three additional sets of the title letters from kraft cardstock.  Adhering each of the three kraft layers on top of one another and finishing off each letter with the patterned paper version creates lots of dimension.  In fact, the letters almost feel and look as if they are chipboard, which in this case, coordinated perfectly with the other chipboard elements on the page.

I know you have lots of summer photos and memories to capture! So, what are you waiting for?!  Hop on over to the Just Nick store and show us what you make with them!


I'm All About... August 06, 2015 07:00

Hey, there!  Jennie here today to blast a little bit of summer inspiration your way.  The cut files in the  Just Nick Store are so fun to use -- and the Sunny Days file is no exception!  I've used it before and I couldn't resist using it again to create a page about one of my favorite things - warm days!

I love using the files with patterned papers and the sun + clouds from Sunny Days shows exactly why -- it's just fun!

Don't you agree that the font in the Sunny Days file is awesome?  Have you downloaded this one yet?  What are you waiting for - I'm sure you can find lots of projects to use it on.  Make sure you share with us on the Just Nick Facebook page or tag Just Nick on Instagram so we can see!

Ah summer... It's been super hot here in the pacific northwest so, to channel my inner summer card making was quite easy. I love the sun and summer themed cut files in the shop! I used a couple of faves on the following two cards. This first one uses the waves from the Lake Life cut file

I love the doodle look of the waves and decided to cut them out with white cardstock and use a watercolor effect with my inks.

A close up...

 

The second card, I grabbed the adorable sun from the Sunny Days cut file.

Once again, I used white cardstock and then used some yellow mist. Since it's summer and I like to make things sparkle, I added some glimmer mist on top, too. The cloud is from the cut file, as well.

 

SO perfect for cards! 

Thanks for swinging by today! Are you in the process of documenting your Summer memories? Make sure to grab some awesome cut files from the shop!

Summer Sunburst String Art August 04, 2015 00:00

Summer is wrapping up and that means we have lots of summer pictures to scrap right now!  Christine joining you today and I had a cute picture of my little blondie (my other kiddos are all brunettes) that I wanted to get documented.  So I dove in with some JustNick files and did a one picture layout with some major technique involved: string art and stitching!

 JustNick released this Starburst Background this week and I knew I wanted to use it with a sunshine theme.  But the more I looked at it, it was screaming for stitching and some string art.

I started with the string art.  I punched holes in the two rays that lined up with others.  I then used those as my base for string art.  I went from one ray and skipped over one.  I then did the same thing but skipped two. I did that in between each set of starbursts.  I then punched holes at the tip of each ray and stitched the outline of those and made a few additional connections.  It was not complicated at all.  But it was time consuming.  This is the perfect project to do in front of the tv or when you are a passenger on a long road trip.

I did back each startburst with a yellow or orange patterned paper to play up that sunshine theme and also added coordinating buttons to the ones that showed.  The Summer Words file provided the perfect title and my picture needed just a little bit more so I added some extra paper and stickers.  It didn't need a lot because the background provides that fun eye candy already!

Thanks for joining us today!  Make sure to check back the rest of the week for more summer projects!
