Joining me today is Chantalle McDaniel who created an amazing project! Check out what she created with this freebie cut file

ChantalleSupplies: Pattern Paper, Foil paper, Layered Tags & Adhesive Sequins – We R Memory Keepers. Simple Stories Stickers; Prima Marketing Stencil & Stamp; Cardstock, Bazzill; Golden Acrylics; Kaisercraft pearls

Here is what Chantalle had to say about her project:

"I absolutely love the circular design of this month’s freebie. Use them on their own or weld to create a pattern, there are so many possibilities! I have chosen to keep some of the circles plain white to coordinate with the paper and photo choice and then highlight a few by using punchy gold foil to bring in some lush detail to my title."

I decided to make some simple cards with this month’s freebie for something different!

Hello card

Hello card cl1
Supplies: Patterned Paper, Chipboard, Enamel Dots: Simple Stories; Letter Stickers: BasicGrey; Stamps & Ink: Hampton Art

For this card, I diecut the Hello as a sentiment for the card, which is also a focal point on the card. Diecutting the circle from a smaller pattern of paper makes the design easy to read and stand out!

Thinking of you card

Thinking of you card cl1Supplies: Patterned Paper, Chipboard, Enamel Dots: Simple Stories; Vellum: American Crafts; Stamps & Ink: Stampin’ Up

The diecut on this card is much subtler, as it was cut from some vellum and tucked behind some layers of paper and a fussy cut heart shape. You can easily use this month’s freebie in several different ways and I hope you enjoy it!

All right! Who is ready to download!? Be sure to download this freebie HERE!
