Happy Easter Just Nick friends!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! I have a new layout to share with you but believe it or not, its not Easter themed! It's a birthday themed layout I am sharing this week as we are all using words/sentiment cut files on our projects!

I combined two different cut file sets from the Just Nick store for this layout...I used the candles and the balloons included in the Birthday sentiments set below.....  

I decided to add my photos as a photo strip this time...I really like this look whenever I have a few photos I want to include as a series. The skinny photos means you can layer and tuck embellishments and cut files in and around the photos!

and the Make a Wish and Yay words from the Card sentiments 1 set.

These photos were taken at my little guy's 4th birthday a couple of years ago...he absolutely LOVES cake of any kind and that is what he gets most excited about at birthday parties! Even his own!

The Make a Wish collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio was perfect for this layout...the Just Nick cut files match with this collection perfectly!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick Studio blog today! Check out the cut files available in the Just Nick store now!

Happy creating!

Happy Spring | Tarrah McLean March 30, 2017 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a Spring themed layout to share with you using some pretty Doodle Flowers cut files!

Doodle Flowers is the cut file I have used from the Just Nick store to cut out the flowers on this layout!

I used the Simple Stories Fresh Air collection for this layout about my niece out in the garden one day! Cutting the Doodle Flowers from different papers and at different sizes, brings in lots of variety and adds lots of interest to my page!  

A couple of whimsical wood veneer pieces really add to the garden theme I have going on here...I love the colour they bought to the layout as well as the dimension! 

A couple of resin embellishments I have had in my stash forever also made it on to this layout! I nearly always have to add a flair button and this layout is no exception! The rain cloud with the rain drops flair was perfect in colour and theme so this was the one that had to be used!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick Studio blog today! I would love to see some Spring themed projects that you have created using the Just Nick cut files? Make sure to tag @justnickstudio on social media so we can see what you are creating!

Happy creating!

123 DAB | Tarrah McLean March 14, 2017 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new boy themed scrapbook layout with you!

My 2 sons are such typical boys......the latest craze is doing a Dab wherever they are without a care in the world! I have had this photo of them doing a Dab together at the Monster Trucks show we went to last year!

Here is the cut file I used on this layout....the Visual Effects background cut file!

I cut the cut file from white cardstock and decided to back it on a darker contrasting colour behind the cut file. I used lots of Crate Paper for this layout including the Hey Boy collection and the Cool Kid collection. The dark background paper came from the Flea Market collection I think it was! I love how the dark strips contrast against the white strips too!

Machine stitching adds some texture to the layout as well as helps to adhere the cut file to the background paper. Recently I got some really fun boy themed flair buttons to add to my stash and one of those just had to be added to this layout! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick Studio today, I hope you are inspired to try some of the amazing cut files found in the Just Nick store!

Happy creating!

Hugs | Tarrah McLean February 06, 2017 07:00

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share a new scrapbook layout created for Just Nick Studio using one of the cute new Love themed background cut files!

I used the cute Pink Paislee 'Pen Pals' collection to create this layout, one of my favourite things to do is to back cut files with all different patterned papers, this range was ideal to do this! 

The cut file that I used on this layout is the Cross My Heart Background cut file found in the Just Nick store. I cut it from white cardstock and backed different patterned papers behind it. Once I had all the papers backed, I used some foam/3D tape to adhere the cut file to the background paper. I really like the dimension and shadow effect it gives to my page. 

I scrapped a photo from last year of my 2 handsome sons! They are mostly best friends! As an added effect, I used some foam Thickers for my title and to embellish further! 

One of the Pen Pals chipboard frames was a perfect addition to frame my photo and draw the eye in! Puffy stickers and chipboard stickers are great embellishments to enhance layouts.

I love how this layout turned out! Check out all the gorgeous new cut files in the Just Nick store today! Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

Happy Aussie Day 2016 | Tarrah McLean January 17, 2017 07:00

Hi there Just Nick friends!


It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout featuring one of my favourite background cut files found under 'Our Cut Files'!  It's Australia Day here in Oz next week so I decided to document one of last year's photos from that day of my youngest holding our flag before we hung it on our balcony. 

The Bits and Pieces star background was a perfect background cut file to use as a base for this layout. I tried to slightly replicate our flag in the papers I backed the cut file with and I am happy with how it turned out.

I used lots of different Thickers that I have had in my stash forever to make up my title! I also used other bits and pieces from my stash to embellish my layout as well. I love to use up stuff I have been hoarding forever...it feels great to finally find a home for it!   

Those chipboard stars are from Pink Paislee and the flair and washi tape are from a small embellishment store in Australia. I included some hidden journalling on my layout this time, its on the tag tucked into that little bag.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today! Do you have a celebration coming up that you want to document? I am sure there would be an awesome cut file or 2 in the Just Nick store that would suit your theme perfectly! Check them out, they are gorgeous! 

Happy creating!

Naughty or Nice | Tarrah McLean January 02, 2017 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I am guessing you may have lots of photos to scrapbook so today I have some inspiration for you using one of the Christmas title cut files in store called Naughty or Nice!

I used the super cute Mistletoe Kisses collection from Simple Stories together with the Naughty or Nice cut file! I love the cute elements included in this collection!

Below is the image of the cut file I used!

As there was lots of green going in on this layout I decided to cut the title from red cardstock...I feel it helps to balance out some of the colours. 

Just before Christmas, my boys and I went to a Christmas party at a good friends house. She had an awesome photo booth set up, my boys loved playing in there, so I just had to snap a few pics of course!

I hope you will get some time to create over the Christmas break? Why not check out all the cut files available in the Just Nick store? They really do help to enhance your projects!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

Happy creating!

Holly and Jolly | Tarrah McLean December 16, 2016 07:00 2 Comments

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! I have a new layout to share today that will get you into the Christmas spirit if you aren't already!!

I was lucky enough to get a few bits and pieces from the Mistletoe Kisses collection by Simple Stories recently and this is my 5th layout using it! I have sons so therefore the colours aren't what I would normally use but I have found this collection super easy to use! 

As soon as I saw this super cute photo of my nephew wearing that massively cute sweater, I knew what I wanted to do straight away with this layout! Don't you love it when that happens?!

I decided to cut the Reindeer cut file from white cardstock right in the centre so that I could then add a backing patterned paper behind it. 

I added lots of different pieces from the Mistletoe Kisses collection to embellish my layout including the chipboard stickers, 4x6 stickers, ephemera and wood veneer!

I find inspiration for my layouts all over the place but one of my favourite places to find inspiration is on clothes. I just adore that reindeer on the sweater so I just had to showcase a reindeer somehow! 

Some of the elements included in the Mistletoe Kisses collection are very cutesy which is brilliant for me having 2 young sons! 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today! Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New year! Make sure to join us again in the New Year for more inspiration using the awesome cut files here at Just Nick Studio!

Today is the 5th day of the 12 days of Giveaway here on the Just Nick blog - which is so exciting! Nicole has outdone herself with all the designs for this giveaway and you can keep your eyes on the lookout for some beautiful new and FREE cut files coming up in the next days! The design team have created wonderful projects to showcase each design and for inspiration. 

I am sharing the layout that I created using the free cut file for today - the Tree Trio 2 cut file

I kept my layout fairly simple for a change and I like how it turned out! I cut the three trees from 3 different patterned papers and placed them framing my photo slightly.

By adding some layering pieces like stickers and small embellishments I was able to add some extra interest to my page without completely covering up the tree cut files I created. A large chipboard title was begging to be used I I would have had it for like 8 years I think!!) so I finally got to use it! 

Today’s design – Tree Trio 2 - is yours for FREE today only!

Just enter code: TRIO2FREE at checkout to get this design for free.
This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 5th, 2016.
No purchase necessary.
Design will be available in the JustNick Store for purchase after the discount code expires.
Happy cutting and creating!


Adventure | Tarrah McLean November 28, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new scrapbook layout to share using one of the amazing new background cut files called Circle to Circle. This background is brand new and has just been released so make sure you jump on the Just Nick store and add it to your cut file collection!

I teamed the Circle to Circle background cut file with the super pretty Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. I adhered the cut file in place and then machine stitched the square edge for extra security and some texture.

I decided to cut the background with white cardstock so that I could overlap onto that pretty but busy patterned paper background!

I added lots of embellishments inside some of the holes of the cut file and also framed the photo with them as well. I tried to match the colors in the papers with the embellishments that I added to the hole. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

3 x Christmas Cards | Tarrah McLean November 19, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today! All this week, we have been showcasing cards on the Just Nick blog using the awesome Just Nick cut files.

I decided to create 3 Christmas cards for this week:

The first card I created, I used the Ho Ho Ho title from the Holiday Sentiments cut file set, cutting it from white cardstock and using foam tape to pop it up a little bit!

This cut file set is so versatile, as you get all of these cute titles for your holiday/Christmas projects in the one set!

The 2nd card I created, I used the 25 frame from Holiday Overlay 1 cut file set! I cut the 25 frame from white cardstock again and backed the frame with some red Christmas themed paper. I then used foam tape to raise the whole thing on top of the green Christmas themed paper. 

Frames with images or words are great to use on cards, you can cut them from paper or cardstock for a fun look.  

The 3rd card I created, I used the Holiday Tree Background. I cut this tree and the frame that its attached to with the green Christmas paper. I adhered it to a white cardstock background and added some Holiday themed embellishments to finish off my card.

The Holiday Tree background can be used for either a scrapbook layout or for cards too, you just need to resize the image accordingly!

Hope you enjoyed looking at my Christmas cards today! Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog!

Trick or Treat | Tarrah McLean October 24, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah joining you and today I am sharing my very first Halloween themed layout for this year!

Obviously I had to use photos from last years Halloween, we don't actually really celebrate Halloween in Australia but my son's love dressing up and joining in on the Trick or Treat fun! Luckily because it is getting popular over here now, the shops are starting to carry costumes and things to decorate your home with!

I just HAD to use this amazing Spider Web background when I saw that Nicole had designed it, I was busting to create a layout using it!

I used lots of bits and pieces of Halloween themed craft things that I have had for some time now...there is a bit of Crate Paper After Dark and some pieces from a really old brand called Little Yellow Bicycle!

I used the Trick or Treat from the 31 cut file set for my title and I love how it turned out cut on orange cardstock!  

Last Halloween I had a zombie and a skeleton! How cute are they?!! I also added some Halloween wood veneer bits that I have had for a few years! 

I love how the chipboard spider fits in the corner of the letter 'R'....it was the perfect spot for him to go!

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! I hope I have inspired you to get your Halloween crafting started!

Happy creating and Happy Halloween!

Cozy Comfy Together | Pretty Little Studio Team Up | Tarrah McLean October 13, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing my layout for the team up between Just Nick Studio and Pretty Little Studio!

I was lucky enough to get some of Ashley Horton's new Fall collection called 'Oakley Avenue' and have used this collection on my layout!

 

I adore this photo of my parents and my siblings and myself! It was taken on my sister's 30th birthday a few years ago!

I used the Totally Tubular background for my layout today...I cut it from white cardstock and machine stitched around all the circles for added texture...

You can watch my process video below to see how I put my layout together...

The Oakley Avenue collection went perfectly with the colours in my photo...this collection is perfect for Fall, Family, Gratitude themed pages and cards too!

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah here with you and today I am excited to be sharing my layout for the team up between Just Nick Studio and Stuck?! Sketches.....my layout of course features Nicole's awesome cut files and you can see my interpretation of the fabulous sketch that Laura designed from Stuck?! Sketches!

Here are the awesome Just Nick cut files I used for my layout...the Gamer cut files...perfect for my son who LOVES to play his Playstation!

I used up some of my Simple Stories 'So Rad' collection from my stash...it goes perfectly with these cut files...I resized them a little bit to work with them into my layout....I made the headphones a bit bigger, the controller a bit smaller and the Gamer title slightly bigger too! 

Here is Laura's awesome sketch she designed! Make sure you check out the Stuck Sketches?! blog for all the inspiration using this same sketch!

Some detail photos showing how the Just Nick cut files compliment the sketch and the So Rad collection....

XOXO by Tarrah McLean September 02, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout using one of my most favourite cut files in the Just Nick store - the XOXO background cut file!

Here is the cut file I used.....the XOXO background

I adapted this cut file a little in Silhouette Studio by taking out the 'O' inserts so that I wouldn't have to put all those pieces back in once it was cut out! I like the result without those pieces included!

I used the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Love Always' collection with this cut file....I knew the two together would look pretty.

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!

Happy cutting and creating!

Bloom & Grow by Tarrah McLean August 19, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share a new scrapbook layout...its almost Spring (yay!) here in Australia so my layout for Just Nick was inspired by the flowers that are starting to bloom around here! I am usually not a flower lover but since I have a niece now I have an excuse to use them and I actually love it!

This is the cut file I used on my layout...the floral stripe background....I cut it from a floral patterned paper and adhered it horizontally to mimic the floral design on the background paper!

I added some black lines using a black journaling pen, in between the cut lines to also mimic the design already printed on the background paper...

I added lots of floral embellishments like some wood veneers, ephemera and rubber shapes. I also added a few different phrase stickers to tie the theme all together.

 

This layout is about my niece who I ADORE! She is the funniest little girl! She is so gorgeous and I just LOVE having a little girl to scrap now! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

Happy cutting and creating!


Stay Cool | Tarrah McLean August 01, 2016 07:00

Hi Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you today to share a new scrapbook layout with you using one of the many beautiful new cut files in store now!

I decided to use - The Floral Lace Background from the store and absolutely LOVE how it turned out!

I used the fun Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection to document this super cute photo of my niece when she was about 6 months old! My sister and her family live in England, they visited us last year and they had bought Amelia these sunglasses to protect her eyes from our harsh sun...perfect photo opportunity!

I also used a few bits and pieces left over from my June Hip Kit club kit, like those cute wood veneer sunglasses.......very appropriate for this layout!

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah McLean joining you here on the Just Nick blog and today I am sharing with you the layout I created for our recent team up with Creative Scrappers!

We were given this awesome sketch from the Creative Scrappers team to take inspiration from!

This is the July free cut file that we were to use with the sketch! Isn't it cool? I ungrouped the cut file and deleted some of the top rows so that it resembled the sketch a little better! 

You can get it for free all month long until July 31st! Just put in this code at checkout: csfree

I have wanted an excuse to use those die-cuts and the acetate word for so long! One of my good friends sent me this photo to scrap and it was perfect to use for this layout! I mostly used the True Stories collection by Shimelle!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

Me by Tarrah McLean July 13, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone!

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!

Happy creating!

 


My Favorite by Tarrah McLean June 24, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I have a new scrapbook layout to share with you using the Free Tic Tac Toe background cut file for the month of June!

Below is the free cut file for June available for download until June 30th using the code TICTACTOEFREE at checkout!

 

There are so many possibilities with the Tic Tac Toe background cut file, I cut it out from white cardstock and then backed it with the one patterned paper for a clean look. Another idea would be to back each square with a different paper for a busier look!

I just love the Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans! I am trying not to use too much of it! I love that I can use flowers on boy pages! The black and white photo helps to make the colours pop!

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!


Little Moments by Tarrah McLean June 15, 2016 06:57

Hi everyone!

Tarrah here and today I am excited to share my scrapbook layout for the recent blog hop that was held between Just Nick Studio and Clique Kits!

I used the butterflies in the top right corner from this cut file, enlarging them to suit my layout..I thought the butterflies went perfectly with my soft baby theme.... 

I absolutely love the Elle's Studio Little Moments papers and embellishments that were included in the June Clique Kit! They matched perfectly with the cut files we were given to use with these beautiful kits.

I chose to use the beautiful butterfly cut files and I enlarged it to fit across my layout to sit above the 'Enjoy the Little Things' sentence.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today! 


Fall Blessing May 28, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout that I created using one of the amazing background cut files in store.

It's finally Autumn/Fall here in Australia and since I haven't yet used the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection I thought this was the perfect chance to use some of it!

I love how the colours in the patterned paper pop against the white cut file. I used a fairly plain patterned paper for the background.

I used a few of the embellishments in the Cedar Lane ephemera pack to embellish this layout with this photo of my son and I from just the other day!  

I kept my title fairly simple so I didn't cover up the background cut file too much.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog today!

Happy cutting and creating!

 


Happy May 10, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new layout with you using the brand new and amazing Bits and Pieces Heart Background! This cut file would have to be one of my all time favourites from the awesome range of Just Nick cut files!

The Bits and Pieces Heart cut file is so effective no matter how you choose to use it, whether you choose to back each individual piece with different patterned papers or you could back it with the one patterned paper like I have done! 

I used one of the busy patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio 'Up in the Clouds' collection to back the heart with. I love how the busy paper is broken up with the different size pieces from the heart cut file. 

I added lots of extra Pinkfresh Studio goodies to this layout also including some of those awesome acetate words from the Life Noted collection and the rubber charms also from the Life Noted collection! I machine stitched through the acetate words to help hold them to the page! 

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! Check out the Just Nick store for loads new cut files Nicole has just uploaded plus all your favourites already in store too!

I absolutely love this Striped Alpha Cut file set! It looks great with a paper backed behind it for some extra pop of colour! 

I added some embellishments, machine stitching and some splats of mist to finish off!

Hey Cool Kids February 23, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there!

It's Tarrah back with you today to share a newly created scrapbook layout using a few different Just Nick cut files!

 

As soon as I saw the awesome Pinwheel background cut file I just knew I wanted to team it with the Fancy Pants Designs 'Be Different' collection! That 'Rawr' flair is the inspiration behind this layout!  

My 2 boys are my world, they are the subject of most of my layouts! My eldest received a selfie stick and so this photo is the result of the two of them having some fun using it to take selfies!

The other super cool cut file I used was the All Boy set, I cut the word Cool with some patterned paper and cut the star with black cardstock. 

I am loving long titles where I can use many different alphas at the moment...it really makes a great impact on your layout!

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for the ever growing list of new cut files plus your all time favourites are still in store too!

Happy creating!


XOXO February 02, 2016 07:00

Hi there Just Nick fans!

It's Tarrah back with you today to share a love themed layout for our Valentine/Love feature here on the Just Nick Blog!

 

I cut the XOXO background from white cardstock and backed it with some patterned paper to create a main focal point for my layout...I then further embellished my layout by tucking other papers and embellishments in and around the cut file. 

I usually like to incorporate more than 1 cut file from the Just Nick store on my layouts but I this time I thought the XOXO background made a big enough statement!

I love to use up some of my older collections for layouts like this because I think the collection still makes an impact when used in a different design! 

Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today! Make sure you head over to the Just Nick store to see all the beautiful love themed cut files and plus many more!

See you next time...happy creating!

The Nice List January 22, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

Hi there everyone!

It's Tarrah McLean here with you and I am so excited to be here! Today I am sharing my first layout using the amazing Just Nick cut files! I don't know about you but I am playing catch up a little bit with my crafting! Yes I am still scrapbooking Christmas!

I chose to use the Triangle Geo Lace background to carry on the triangle shape design already printed on the patterned paper...I used the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes collection to create this layout..

I created the word 'Nice' by using the Handcut Letters cut file...I deleted the letters I didn't need, moved the letters together to spell 'Nice' so they overlapped a little and then welded them together in Silhouette Studio.

Thank you so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!

Happy creating!

Hi everyone! My name is Tarrah McLean, I live near Sydney, Australia and I have been scrapbooking for 10 years!

My scrapbooking style has really evolved over time....I would currently describe my scrapbooking style as clean, layered, colourful, fun and trendy!

Some of my favourite items to include on a layout are cut files, flair, machine stitching and splats of mist….some of my favourite brands to create with are Crate Paper, Pink Paislee, Pinkfresh Studio, Fancy Pants and Bella Blvd.
