I asked the talented Laura Whitaker to join me on the blog this month and use the freebie in any way she wanted. Check out what she created:


Supplies: Echo Park pattern papers; American Crafts cardstock;  Echo Park and Simple Stories stickers; Freckled Fawn and Simple Stories enamel shapes and dots; Simple Stories alpha stickers; SpiegelMom Scraps sequins; Sargent Arts gesso; Sihimmerz mist; Gelatos; Clos to my Heart black ink; On Canoe Two date stamp; WRMK typeset typewriter; crochet thread

I was so thrilled to be invited by Nicole to be the guest here for this month's free cut file! I love the cut file that Nicole created, it inspired me to get creating as soon as I saw it. It definitely spoke summer to me and had me reaching for bright colours and a fun photo of my grandson! As you can see I used the sunglasses cut file as my main focal area, which acts as both a title and a "home" for my photo.  I also used some of the other pieces of the cut file as embellishments, which included turning one into a sequin shaker.

I also used the sunglasses as a main focal point on my page:


Supplies: Paterned paper : Crate Paper, Pink Paislee; Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, American Crafts; Diecuts: Fancy Pants Designs; Enamel Dots: Bella Blvd

I was able to diecut some smaller script font words and add them along the upper edge of the sunglasses to add to my title work. I love the ombre like feel you get from the paper by Pink Paislee too!  Along with some other diecut shapes from the freebie, I added in some pre-made diecuts by Fancy Pants Designs!

Have a great Summer! See you in August with another freebie. Enjoy!"
