This month, I have invited a super talented contributor from our Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Reader’s gallery, Amy Coose, who was featured in our Summer 2015 Reader’s Gallery. I asked her to use the cut file in any way she wanted, on any type of project, and check out the amazing page she sent!

I love how Amy resized the frames to fit her page and increasing them to be a title too –genius!

Summer snapshot

Here is what Amy had to say about her page:

These frames were perfect to highlight some of my favorite pictures from our recent vacation to Punta Cana.  I used them not only to frame my title and a picture, but I also blew one up, trimmed off the words and used it at the bottom of my layout.

I started my page with the thought that I would use all the different frames, but ended up using both the plain frame and it’s’ inside piece! I also added one of the word frames to the outside of the photo on my page. 

Today was fun
