Hello friends! Yvette here, and today I'm sharing a Halloween-themed layout with you. They're so many fun Halloween-themed cut files in the store to choose from, but in the end I decided on two of the newer ones....'Happy Halloween 3' and 'Halloween Icons 3'.



  



I started my layout off by cutting the 'Happy Halloween 3' cut file from white cardstock three time and instead of using patterned papers from a tradition Halloween collection to backed it. I went with Vicki Boutin fun and colorful Color Study collection.    


Next, I wanted to create a mixed media background, but after a few attempts and just wasn't happy with any of them, I decided to use one of Vicki Boutin ready-to-use mixed media paper. I then adhered the 'Happy Halloween 3' cut file to the bottom half of my layout using foam tape, give it some added height and dimension.
  

Once I had my photo in place I added a few die-cuts pieces from the Color Study collection to the back of it.


   To complete my page I added the bats found in the 'Halloween Icons 3' cut file around the layout, which I cut from black cardstock. 



  I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick Shop!

Fall | JustNick Studio

 


Hello friends! Yvette here with a Fall-themed layout using the beautiful new 'Leafy Fall' cut file and the 'Leaves 5' cut file from JustNick Studio.

Here's what I created....




 

I started by cutting both of the cut files out of white cardstock. For the 'Leafy Fall' cut file I used patterned papers from Pinkfresh Days of Splendor collection to back some of the opening. I wanted a grungy look for the 'Leaves 5' cut file, so I simply added some watercolor paint in black and brown to each of the leaves. 


 I adhered the 'Leafy Fall' cut file down (which works great as a title for my page) with foam tape to give it dimension and layered my photo with a few pieces of patterned papers from the Days of Splendor collection. 


        I used the 'Leaves 5' with some of Pinkfresh Days of Splendor embellishments to create clusters around my title.


   I arrange several chipboard fairs down the left side of my photo also from the Days of Splendor collection.


To complete my layout I added some stamping and framed my page using the Oh So Delightful pattern paper, by cutting out the inside section from it. 

I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!

Happy | JustNick Studio




Hello friends! I'm back with you today, to share a new layout for JustNick Studio. I fell in love with the new 'Leaf Border' cut file and couldn't resist using it to document this fun selfies that I took of my son and I, just before he left to see his friends! 



  


I started my layout off by cutting the 'Leaf Border' on white cardstock and backing it with patterned paper. Next, I chose a few pieces of pattern paper from Pinkfresh Studio 'The Best Day' collection, and cut then into strips in variety widths and lengths. Machine stitching was also added to each of the paper strips.


Before gluing the paper strips and cut file down, I created a fun and colorful background with watercolor paint splatters and loved the end results.     

 


 I used both patterned paper and white tissue paper to create some layers behind my photo.



  

Embellish with a few fussy cut leaf sprigs, a flower die-cut, as well as a few cardstock stickers from the 'The Best Day' collection.




 

Lastly, I added a few leaves from the 'Latte Love' cut file, cut from white cardstock and then placed those around my layout.

You Are.... | JustNick Studio

 


Hello friends! It's Yvette with you today, and I have another layout to share. For this layout, I used the awesome Radiating Background as well as the You Are... phrase cut files from the JustNick shop.





 


Today, I am documenting this photo of my son, which were taken on his Birthday last year. 


I started by cutting the Radiating Background cut file out of white cardstock, and then backed it using the Color Wheel patterned paper from Vicki Boutin Color Study collection. Next, I added machine stitching to the Radiating cut file, and knowing that I wanted to use the You Are...cut file as my title, I adhered it off-center. I then added the excess that were trimmed off in the bottom left corner. 




The You Are....cut file was cut from white cardstock and then colored in, using ink pads in shades of black and brown.

   



My photo was backed with some white tissue paper and adhered to the center of the Radiating Background cut file.







To finish my page I added die-cut pieces and foam stickers in and around my photo and title.


I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!

Summer | JustNick Studio

 


Hello JustNick friends!

It's Yvette back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the awesome 'Graphic Screen' cut file.  I had the perfect photo in mine when I saw the 'Graphic Screen' cut file, and decided to keep the photo in-color which allowed me to create a bright and colorful page.   




I first cut the 'Graphic Screen' cut file from white cardstock. Then I created an offset in Silhouette, and cut this out of patterned paper, using the Hip Kit Club July kit.  Next, I added some foam tape to the back of the 'Graphic Screen' cut file, cut from the white cardstock before adhering it to the offset and love the added dimension this created. 


The 'Graphic Screen' cut file was then adhered to my background on an angle.


  


Once my photo was in place I began layering the beautiful floral from HKC Build a Bloom pack down the right side, along with few die-cut phrases. I also added a few pieces of fussy cut greenery amounts the flowers.

 


 

A puffy sticker was used to create a title for my layout, and then embellish.



 

 I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own. Don't forget to check out all the amazing cut files available in the JustNick shop!

Best Day | JustNick Studio

 


Hello everyone!

It's Yvette here, and I'm back to share with you another layout I created using JustNick beautiful cut files!

For this layout I used the 'Butterflies 4' and the 'Butterfly' cut files to document a sweet moment between a Grandfather and a Grandson. 


  




I selected three of the butterflies and cut then out of white cardstock. I then decided to add a bit of black distress ink to each of the butterflies, filling in the middle section with a black marker, and then added some white paint dots to it. I really love the pop of color the black on the outside of the butterflies creates when backed with the pattern paper that I have chosen.   




Next, I started playing around with the placement of my embellishments, photo and a few fussy cut pieces. 



A layer of journaling bits from PinkFresh Happy Blooms collection was used behind the photo, with another one placed just below it. 



     

Machine stitching was added down the middle of the banner phrases and then adhered to my background paper.



To break up the white space a little, I added a few fussy cut circles and butterflies around the page.
