Sunshine on my Mind | Majken Pullin - combining cut files August 17, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today, and I think my layout today is the tail end of our Summer/Travel theme projects.  I combined two JustNick cut files to create a fun summery layout.

I started with the Sunshade Background and scaled it to 11"x11".  Next I opened Sunshine On My Mind and copied the "Sunshine" over to my cut file.  I sized the word to fit within the frame and then welded it so the "S" and "E" would be attached to it. Here's what it looked like in Silhouette Studio:

I used the Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies to create my project. Isn't the ombre rainbow background paper just beautiful?

I originally was stuck trying to figure out if I should back the letters in "Sunshine" or let the paper show through. Ultimately, I was inspired by my friend Heather to follow the ombre/rainbow colors of the background and back them with matching papers.

To do that, I released the compound path of the letters, then removed the inside part of each letter.  And then I spaced them out on my mat so I could cut them all at once on different patterned papers. Here is what that looks like in Silhouette Studio:

I was inspired by the "Sunshine on my Mind" title, so I used some alpha stickers to create the "on my mind".

I also sewed around the frame, and I sprinkled some matching stickers and ephemera along the "Sunshine". I put several matching enamel dots between the sunrays and "sunshine" to match the ombre colors.

Other than my photo area, I left the sunshine rays to stand on their own.

I hope this has inspired you to mix and match your cut files to create unique ones for your projects!

Here are the JustNick Studio cut files I used today:

Hello JustNick fans, welcome to the blog! For today's blog post I've created a summer layout using the new "Sunshade Background" cut file and the "Smile" file. I love all the cut files in the JustNick store and always find it hard to choose which ones to use for my next project. 

A couple of years ago (was it really already 5 years ago?!) the ice bucket challenge was all the rage and of course my kids had to join in. I didn't mind the wet clothes as I got some fun photos out of it! Here's the layout I created:

I've used the "Oh Summertime" collection from Pebbles which is just perfect for all summer photos and those sweet little boys die-cuts were just what I needed for my layout. 

These are the cut files I used: 

Sunshade Background:

Smile:

I started by cutting the Sunshade Background cut file from a sheet of yellow cardstock, measuring a little larger than 11"x 11". This yellow background sun I matted on the Pebbles "Oh Summertime" sheet (the sheet with the text). Behind this came first a sheet of white cardstock and then another sheet of patterned paper: the Pebbles Fresh Picked" sheet (red checkered). For some added texture I machine stitched all the sun rays. 

I printed three small photos and adhered two in the bottom left corner and one in the top right corner. The rainbow colored landing strip from one of the sheets of patterned paper I used to fill in the sun rays. 

The word "Love", which I cut from the "Smile" cut file, I sprayed with a "citron" color shine spray ink and adhered it partly over the bottom of the top photo:

I added a few die-cuts, stickers and enamel dots:

Last but not least I wrote the journaling in the sun beans and stamped the date and I was done!

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my project. Don't forget to visit the JustNick store. There are so many fun cut files you can use for your vacation photos! 

Wishing you happy scrapping!

Hi all Rachel here! Today I have a summer layout for you using one of the new releases.

I have used the new collection by Pebbles Inc Oh SummerTime.

I cut the Sunshine background cut file in a yellow embossed paper, added foam tape to the three middle rays to create a 3d effect. I chose a great photo of my boys att the beach about to go for a surf.

I made my first embellishment cluster 'framing' my photo, as you can see I added another ball die cut and added with foam tape over the larger die cut one, with the flip flops I added and summer flower die cut with foam tape and also my title Happy Day.

I added a floral bunch to the top left of my photo and finished off adding a super cute parrot and heart on the opposite side.

I used the reef and crab die cuts to create another embellishment cluster at the bottom right of my page. To create the effect of a ocean I added sequins.

I love how this turned out, using the Sunshine Shade background and putting my photo over it really made my photo a focal point, it totally says summer! Thank you for stopping by today and I will see you later in the month with my last DT layout for Justnick Studio after a wonderful two years on the team.


Myrtle Beach | Marcia Dehn-Nix June 10, 2019 07:00 1 Comment

Hello JustNick Studios friends!

Marcia here today. I was inspired by some of Nicole's newest cut files to scrap some summer beach photos. While vacationing in Myrtle Beach, I loved getting up before the sun and walking along the beach looking for shells and watching the sunrise. 

I love the new Beach Sand Surf title cut files. I backed the Beach one to have some beach sand on the bottom half by adding some torn kraft cardstock.

It was fun to embellish my title with stickers.

The Sunshade Background is a great way to add warmth to your summer layouts with those big sun rays. I did some machine stitching on the rays to add some texture.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great week.
