It’s cut file FREEBIE day! This month’s freebie is pretty versatile and really could be used on various projects. I love a simple repetitive background, and hope you do too!

This month, I have invited another amazing contributor from our Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Reader’s gallery, Lee-Anne Thornton, who was featured in our Summer 2015 issue.

I sent Lee-Anne the cut file and she created this amazing layout! 

Lee-Anne layout

Supplies: Alphas – American Crafts; Cardstock – American Crafts; Distress Ink – Tim Holtz; Electronic Diecut Machine – Silhouette Cameo; Flair Buttons – A Flair For Buttons; Mist – Heidi Swapp; Patterned Paper – Crate Paper; Sequins – Crate Paper

I love how Lee-Anne layered various papers behind each of the shapes in the background. What a great way to mix lots of patterns!

I used the free design as a background element and filled my rectangles in too! You can see how cutting the design from different papers can achieve such a different look on your page.

Wonderful Fall

Supplies: Patterned paper: Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, We R Memory Keepers; Gold Foil paper: Fancy Pants Designs; Cut Files: Silhouette, JustNick; Buttons: Studio Calico; Alphas: Crate Paper; Enamel Brads: Simple Stories; Twine: May Arts
