Good morning SCT fans! Nicole here to share with you another FREE cut file, some inspiration and continue our partner celebration with our friends at American Crafts!

First, take a peek at this month’s free cut file:

Scrapbook & Cards Today - August 2018 cut file freebie

Download HERE!

I decided to keep this one simple and cut it from textured white cardstock and then back the cut file with various patterned papers.

Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, Amy Tangerine; Art Crayons & Stencil Brushes: Vicki Boutin; Enamel Dots: Simple Stories

Once the background was filled in, I used some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to add a little pop of colour to some cardstock where my design was going to go. I also added in several fussy cut paper flowers and leaves around my design and photos.

I hope you enjoy this one, it would also be a great stencil – I just love the sun catcher feel of it!
