Chill Out | Majken Pullin August 02, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick fans...it's Majken with you today to share a fun and summery layout! I used some fun alpha techniques to create my title, and a sun cut file for my journaling area. Let's take a look!
For the Outline Alpha, I first made each letter its own compound path, and then I overlapped the letters to create the words "Chill" and "Summer". I selected each word and welded the letters together so they'd maintain their outline. I filled in each letter with a different patterned paper and stitched around each letter. I love the texture that the stitching adds to cut files!
For the script alpha letters, I overlapped them to create cursive words, welded them together, and then cut each word "out" and "it's" three times to glue them together to create a more 3-dimensional look.
How fun is the sun from Sunny Days for journaling? I typed out my journaling after measuring the inside of my sun, printed it, then used a punch to cut it for my center.
Here's a quick look at the "Summer" with some sequins to add to the polka dot paper:
I hope this inspires you to create some fun titles using the JustNick alphas on your next project! I'm so glad you joined us on the blog today.

Wild At Heart | Marcia Dehn-Nix August 01, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today. One of my favorite destinations for a summer road trip is Grand Marais Minnesota on the shores of Lake Superior. The lake is so big it almost like seeing the ocean. It was a foggy rainy day when we were there, but that just added to it's mystic. When scrapping this favorite photo from the day, I wanted a way to convey the greatness of all that water ... Lake Superior is after all the largest of the Great Lakes. I think the Wave Background digital cut file does it justice!
I still wanted a skyline on my layout so that I could also convey what a cloudy day it was, so I erased the top portion of the background. That left room for me to include some clouds from the Sunny Days digital cut file.
I carefully added some machine stitching to emphasize the waves on the background. I love the effect.
Here are the digital cut files I used today ...
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week.
Meet our April Guest Designer + FREEBIE time! April 14, 2017 07:00
Meet our April Guest Designer - Annelie Maddock!
We asked Annelie to create a few projects with whichever of our cut files she was inspired to use and look what she sent us!
Here is what Annelie had to say about her project:
On this page I used the "Sprinkle Background". I made it a bit smaller, then used it as a mask with texture paste. It's something I do often, I just LOVE the dimension it gives on the page.
For my title I used the word "together" from the "You Make My Heart Smile" cutfile. Adore that font so much! I cut it out on white cardstock, then used mist to make it fit in with the many colours on this page!

Annelie also sent us this fun summery page!
I am totally addicted to background files! For this LO I used the "Little Black Dots" background, but as you can see on MY page it became a rainbow background!
Then, because it's a summery LO I used the sun & clouds from the "Sunny Days" file. To make them stand out on my page I did some faux stitching.

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!

There are loads of fun patterned papers included in this month's Scrapbook Circle kit, but my eyes were immediately drawn to the 'Sprinkle' paper from Amy Tangerine's new 'On a Whim' collection. The patterned rain drops had me swooning! They immediately reminded me of a fun picture and story of my kid's dancing in the exact same raindrops that we had just narrowly escaped at the swimming pool!
Stacking and layering a few of the cut designs, proved to be the perfect home for my page title. A large white cloud cut was a great spot to include my journaling - allowing it to stand out amongst the busy, colorful background.
I overlapped the tile cloud just a small amount, on the left edge of my picture, to tie all of the page elements together. The right side of the photo is accented with additional papers and stickers from the kit, creating a nice cohesive balance.
Stay tuned to the blog for more projects featuring this fun team-up and don't forget to check out the Scrapbook Circle blog for even more inspiration!

Summer Days | Sunny Days | Michelle Whorwood January 25, 2017 07:00
Michelle here with a new layout to share with you today. It is summer time here in NZ so I have been away on holiday creating family memories at our caravan. Today, I am sharing a layout with 3 photos of my girls taking part in some camp ground activities.
To create the circles on my layout I actually had kept some of the negative cut out circles from the Wheels in Motion Cut file from a previous layout I had created. I usually like to keep anything I can and reuse them - especially circles as they are so handy to add to layouts.
Ive added lots of layering elements to my page and to add to the embellishments on my page, the elements in the Sunny Days cut file set was perfect for summer photos. I cut them out on white cardstock and then tucked them in and around my photos to create some interest and texture on my page. They stand out really well against my misting on my background too.
Some close ups:
I hope you have enjoyed my layout share! Til next time ...

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!
I Love You to the Moon Layout July 06, 2015 07:00 2 Comments
Hello there, I hope you all had a great weekend.
Something I love to do on a layout is create texture on my background by using tone on tone. That way there is some texture there, but it doesn't take away from my overall design and photos.
My favorite way to do this is create a tone on tone background with all white. Just like I did in this layout I am sharing with you today.
I took my textured white cardstock and from another piece of the same I cut out a background using the FILIGREE BACKGROUND 1. I used adhesive backed cardstock, so once it was cut it was so easy to just add it to my first sheet of cardstock without having to mess with any other adhesives.
Once the background design was in place it is now time to focus on the main design of my layout. I then used corrugated paper in kraft color to cut out the moon file. It is called TO THE MOON. But in my cut file program I cut the moon away from the words, because I knew they would get covered up by my photos.
Once I was done with cutting out the moon, I printed my photos in black and white. I love to print my photos in black and white when I really want them to stand out with the rest of the design, especially when they don't match the colors I am using on the layout. I added my photos to my layout, grouping them with the moon so it has a cohesive feel to it. I adhered some vellum behind the open stars on the moon to give it an almost cloud like feel.
I then used the word moon from the cut file and added I love you to the from one of my favorite fonts and cut that from adhesive foil in silver. I added this to the layout right above the photos. I also cut the date from the same material. I added the date to a tag I had on hand in pink.
I printed my journaling on some pink cardstock, and decided to cut it into strips before I adhered it to the layout. Then I used the SUNNY DAYS CUT FILE and just used one of the clouds to cut three different sized clouds from vellum to add to the layout. I didn't wan't the clouds to be white because they would have been very noticeable and I wanted them to be more of an accent element. I think besides the story and photos itself, my favorite thing are the vellum clouds. They just add such a fun surprise element to the layout, almost like there is a real cloud sitting on it.
For the final finishing touches I added some corrugated kraft stars and some pink stars I cut from the same cardstock I printed the journaling on. Then I added some enamel dots and some rhinestones for that little bit of bling.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my layout. You can always find me over on my blog at RANDOM RAMBLINGS.
Hurry Up Summer! June 22, 2015 07:00
Hello, there! Jennie McGarvey here to share with you a page I created using the Just Nick Sunny Days cut file. I really love the sun + clouds, so easy to use when you are looking to create a summery type page!
I enlarged the sun and centered it on the page. Then, I used the negative space and filled it in with patterned transparencies to create a background that doesn't compete with the photos and the embellishments.
Speaking of embellishments, I love the puffy clouds, they were a perfect accent for the page. Plus a little ink on the edges really makes them stand out!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out how I used the cut files. Make sure you follow JustNick on Facebook -- you can see all the latest news and won't miss any new releases!
