Good morning cut file fans! It’s time for a new free cut file for April! This one is perfect for all things spring – we hope you love it!

April 2017 freebie


Today, I have Monique Lietdke joining me in creating with this cut file. We love the fun layout she has created!

Supplies:  Patterned Paper: Pebbles; Cardstock: American Crafts; Embellishments: Pebbles; Embroidery Thread: Misc.

Monique had to say this about her project:

“As soon as I saw this fabulous cut file I knew I wanted to sew! I decided to both cut and draw this cut file. I drew it first and punched holes around the outer side of the circles and used embroidery thread in all colors of the rainbow to sew the circles. Next I cut the cut file as well and used all the cut circles to adhere within the larger circles. Pebbles’ Sunshiny Days collection with its bright colors was just perfect for my embroidered circles and my photo.”

I also went with a rainbow feel to my page. How could you not think rainbows for this cut file! I popped a whole lot of colourful papers to the backside of the diecut design and then proceeded to fussy cut a lot of fun Shimelle flowers from patterned paper to fill in around my photo.

The result is fun and playful and full of color, which to me is all SPRING! I hope you are inspired to give this one a try, I think there are lots of possibilities for this one.
