Hello hello hello it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! I don't know about you but even though it's still bitterly cold and gloomy in my region of the world I can't help but long for the beautiful colours of spring! For my layout today I was inspired by all the fun and colourful scraps that I have in my stash. Some are relatively new and some are from years ago, but either way I loved combining them together to make this fun image! I used the Rosette Background 2, and originally I was using it as intended, as flowers, but once I was all done backing it I really loved how much it looked like wonky bubbles, so I decided to document my daughter's bubble blowing adventure last spring. Backing the cut file with multiple papers was a wee bit time consuming, but I just love the end result! Thanks so much for stopping by and if you go to my Youtube channel you can check out how I made my layout!
Follow your dreams | Geometric Background 2 |Michelle Whorwood March 16, 2017 07:00
Michelle here with a new masculine layout featuring the Geometric Background 2 cut file. This type of background is a perfect one for layouts of the boys in our lives and I wanted to utilise the different geometric shapes in the file to make little mini pocket style elements within the grid shapes. I also wanted to share how you can adapt the cut files once you have downloaded them in the Silhouette software to make them your own and to work with your design. This is the original file:
As you can see the original cut file is more A4 size and I wanted to widen the windows on the right hand side so I could fit my square photo and have more space to fit my embellishments. To do this, after I traced the file, I right hand clicked on it to ungroup (release compound path). I then dragged the outer border to fill my 12 x 12 inch space on the Silhouette software. I then dragged the rectangle shapes out to meet my new enlarged border. When I was happy with their size and shape, I regrouped the cut file and proceeded to cut it out. This is the finished layout:
I cut the file out on white cardstock and layered it back on white cardstock and filled in most of the diagonal negative spaces with patterned paper. I added my photo to the largest rectangle shape and added some fringing to the bottom as it was a square photo and didn't actually quite fill the shape - the illusion of another line on the cut file is actually a white border on my photo and added some embellishments to the other negative spaces.
I then added the large title wood veneer and the little frames which hold the initials of my son, Liam's name and matched diagonal slope of the cut file and finished off with some sequin stars and small word phrases which matched the sentiment of my layout.
I hope you have enjoyed my layout I have shared with you today? Do you alter cut files to suit your style or to fit the type of layout you are doing? Maybe you would like to try this technique one day if you haven't already?
Thanks Michelle xx

Hey everybody it's Cathy here, back with another layout for JustNick Studio and Scrapbook Circle! The Scrapbook Circle kit for March was loaded with bright colours and funky designs. I really wanted to showcase all of those fun papers and colours so I chose the dreamcatcher background 1. There were lots of awesome spaces to back with papers! I used a small star stamp to create a fun pattern around where my cut file would rest and then popped my file up on some foam for added dimension. Since all the products worked so perfectly together embellishing was a piece of cake! A big thank you to Nicole and Scrapbook Circle for this awesome team up!
All of Me Loves All of You February 03, 2017 06:00
Hey everyone! Cathy here with a fun lovey dovey layout for you all. I absolutely love the All of Me cut file and I knew immediately that I wanted to see it in black with gold ink splatters on it, so with that for the basis of my layout I set out to find a picture of my husband and I! I ended up printing one that wasn't the best quality, but that I loved anyway, so I just kept it black and white and made it a very small photo, that way the title could really take centre stage. I love the idea of adding other textures on my layouts so I used some beautiful striped ribbon to compliment my page. I fussy cut out a cute little bird from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection. I loved how well those Pinkfresh Studio hearts from the Indigo Hills collection matched with all my colours so I added lots of those too! I absolutely love how well a tiny photo tucks in around my big title, it brings a feeling of cohesion and unity to all the elements going on in my layout. Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video on my YouTube channel to see how this layout came together and to see what happens when you have a terrible accident while scrapping!
Follow Your Heart it Knows the Way January 27, 2017 07:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! This time I'm using the fantastic Going My Way background cut file. I mean, who doesn't love arrows! I love how these arrows are all intersecting, it's such a funky looking cut file! I cut it out of white cardstock and put it over a woodgrain background. I just love the look of a white cut file over top of woodgrain paper :) I can't get enough of it, and these arrows fit perfectly with my theme! I also used lots of the older Crate Paper Journey collection as well to really accent my theme! Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to my YouTube channel to see how I made this layout!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday celebration, and cheers to us fast approaching a new year! I don't know about you guys but I will definitely be glad to see 2016 go in some respects, but in others I was so happy for many of the experiences gained during the year. I am loving my time here on the JustNick design team and I adore her files, so I'm so glad to share another one with you all today! So even though Christmas is done, that just means for me that it's time to get scrapping all of those wonderful photos and memories while it's still wintery white outside. I absolutely adored the Holiday Tree cut file when she put it up in the shop and I knew I needed to use it asap so I decided not to wait until next Christmas and to use it for a holiday photo now! My original plan for this layout was to use a picture of my son and to use a gray/brown wood grain paper as my background, but after stumbling on this funky turquoise Websters Pages paper I changed up my game plan and used a picture of my daughter instead. I love the funky, eclectic look of the layout and all the bright fun pops of colour and bling throughout!

Me by Tarrah McLean July 13, 2016 07:00
Tarrah here with you today! I am super excited to be staying on the Just Nick team for another term! Huge thanks to Nicole for having me on the team once again! I absolutely LOVE cut files and include them on 90% of my layouts!
We were all asked to create a layout about ourselves...I recently changed my profile picture on Facebook to one of my favourite photos of myself (there aren't too many of those I can assure you ;)) so I decided to print it out and use that one for my page.
I'm not normally a flower person if you know me and my style but I had that gorgeous Illustrated Faith 'She Blooms' paper left over from my May Hip Kit and decided the Doily Background cut file would work perfectly with the paper! I cut it out with my Cameo and turned it around until I was happy with how it looked on my layout!
I added lots of different types of embellishments like, chipboard, wood veneer, puffy stickers, flair and enamel dots to help the cut file pop off the page and by using a black and white photo it makes the colour pop too!
Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!

Welcome back for another week of DT intros :) Today, help me welcome Jennie McGarvey to the team!
Hi, I'm Jennie McGarvey! I'm the mom of 3 school aged boys (Campbell, Sawyer and Harrison) and wife to Andy. We currently live in Southern California and enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures year round. I started scrapbooking when I was 12 and in the current style in 2001 when I was pregnant with my oldest son. I scrapped off and on until 2011, when I decided to get online and share my projects. I have a bright, linear and colorful style that I use on my pages about my kids, pocket pages and cards. I have been published in various publications and currently also design for Scraptastic Kit Club, Bella Blvd. and We R Memory Keepers.

Meet Marcia Dehn-Nix June 06, 2015 07:00 1 Comment
Help me welcome Marcia Dehn-Nix to the team!
Hello, My name is Marcia. I am married to the most wonderful guy and we live in Minnesota (where winters are way too long and summers are way too short). We have three adult kids. Our oldest just finished college and got married! Another is studying to be a Vet. My youngest is not sure what he wants to do but is working toward a Math/Physics degree.
I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years. My scrapbooking evolved out of a love for photography. In fact, I used to be a wedding photographer! Besides my love for all forms of paper crafting, I have a soft side when it comes to cute, furry animals. My family fosters kittens and puppies on occasion for a local rescue. Currently in residence is the family dog Satchel, and 3 cats; Delta, Spook, and Xena (my latest stray acquisition). I do have a 9-5 job working as a software engineer. Yup, I am a nerd too.

Meet Jaclyn Rench ! June 05, 2015 07:00 2 Comments
We are happy to share with you another talented lady to join our team in 2015.
I'm Jaclyn Rench, a stay-at-home mommy to three awesome kids and wife of 13 years to a super supportive husband. By day I spend my hours kissing boo-boos, refereeing squabbles, planning playdates, packing lunches, shuffling children from here to there, and trying to figure out what in the heck to fix for dinner that is healthy AND something my kids will eat! Once my kids are tucked into bed, however, you can find me at my crafting desk into the wee hours of the night and early morning, documenting the stories and memories that come out of those non-stop busy days. I hope someday my scrapbooks will give my children a good reminder of the memories of their childhood and a sense of just how much they are loved.

Meet Aurelie Cormier June 04, 2015 07:00 8 Comments
Help me welcome Aurelie Cormier to the team!
I originally hail from Cheticamp, a beautiful Acadian village right on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS. Studying in Moncton, I quickly fell in love with NB and have been a permanent resident since 2005. I now reside in Dieppe with my husband, Mathieu, our six-year old son, Louis-Olivier, our one-year old daughter, Éloïse, and our cat, Caillou. Since 2007, I am a public servant by day and a full-fledged scrapper by night.
Scrapbooking has become an integral part of my life. I try doing something scrapbook-related every day, may it be working on a layout, browsing through online galleries or reading scrapbook magazines. Published in a few editions of Canadian Scrapbooker and most recently in France's own Histoires de Pages, my style has been known to be called "rustic", which is fine by me as it enables me to relish in fattening things up with layers, dimension, tearing and texture. Other than scrapbooking, I have rekindled a romance with reading through a monthly book club I joined at work in February 2012. I also tutor, teach voice classes and sing most weekends at a few church services around the area.

Meet Lee-Anne Thornton June 03, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Meet Lee-Anne Thornton!
I am married to my best friend Rick and have three great kids, a son who is 15, a daughter 28 that is married and a son 30 that is married. Both of my married children live about 200 miles away. While my 15 year old son is at school, I love to scrapbook in my studio.
I began my wonderful scrapbooking journey in 2001 and it's been quite the ride! In the past 3 years, I have been honored to be published in several scrapbooking magazines including Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and Scrapbook And Cards Today and have served on a variety of design teams.
My other passions besides scrapbooking are cooking, baking, photography, flowers, animals and going to the mountains near where I live. I am very excited to be asked to join the first ever Just Nick Design Team and to put my much loved Silhouette Cameo to work!
Here is a sample of Lee-Anne's work using one of our cut files:

Meet Guiseppa Gubler! June 02, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Let's kick things off by announcing our first DT member - Guiseppa Gubler!
Usually when I throw out my name Guiseppa, most people never forget who I am. I think having a unique name has been fun and really helpful in many aspects of my life, including scrapbooking...like I said, most people never forget the name. I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years now.
I jumped on the scrapbooking band wagon when it was so new, so I have seen a lot of changes in the industry. I spend a lot of time scrapbooking (one of the benefits of having children in school all day). I have now created over 80 albums since I began. I like to think of myself as a clean scrapbooker, but I love dimension on my pages and find my self going through huge amounts of foam adhesive. I enjoy scrapbooking so much that about five years ago I dove into the design team world. I have been published in many print and online magazines. My all time favorite tool is my Silhouette Cameo and that is why I thought it was a good idea to have the chance to design for JustNick!
I have been married to my number one supporter Sam for nearly 18 years and we have 3 children; Braden age 18, Janica 16, and our little Angel Sterling passed away eight years ago from "The Bubble Boy Disease." Never has scrapbooking meant so much to me as when he passed away. I have all of those wonderful memories of him preserved through scrapbooking. When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy spending time with my family. You can often find us in the mountains camping, hiking, fishing and exploring on our 4 wheeler. I also enjoy reading and traveling. Just over two years ago I became a Zumba Instructor. I enjoy keeping in shape as well as helping others to do the same all while dancing...so fun!
I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite passions with JustNick's fabulous designs!
