Hello creative people! It’s time for another cut file freebie! This month is a bit of a two for one – one cut file that can be used in two different patterns – alone or mixed together.

Here is what this month’s cut file looks like:

The last few months, we have invited talented contributors from our Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Reader’s gallery and today I have asked Jaclyn Rench, who was featured in our Winter 2014 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 me.

Supplies: Cardstock, Thickers & cork hearts – American Crafts; Patterned Paper – Simple Stories, Pebbles; Wood veneers – Studio Calico; Stamps – Ali Edwards; Ink – Stampin' Up, Hero Arts; Epoxy embellishments – Jillibean Soup; Transparent die cut – Basic Grey; Tools – Silhouette, sewing machine

So fun right?! I just love how Jaclyn resized the cut file to fill the entire background.  Here is what Jaclyn had to say about her page:

I loved the punched circle cut file so much that I supersized it to make up the background of my scrapbook page.  I had fun filling in all of the circles with photos, journaling, patterned paper, stamping and lots of decorative elements to document my story.  A pint sized version of the file was a fun way to fill in a few of the background circles too.  Cutting the smaller version of the file from white cardstock and laying it over top of a white background creates more of a textural effect.  I also made sure to arrange the circle backed circles into a visual triangle to help guide and direct the flow of the page.  Both cut files are so very versatile and can be used in a number of ways on any scrapbook page or project.

I alo played along with the free cut file too, and here is what I created this month:

You & Me

Supplies:  Paper: We R Memory Keepers; Alphas: American Crafts; Mini Placemat: Jillibean Soup; Mist: Heidi Swapp; Epoxy Dots: My Mind’s Eye

I chose to cut multiple triangles out of different patterned papers and make pie chart type shapes out of them:
