Free File Friday: Holidays and Winter Fun


It's time for our second round of Free File Friday for December.  This one is so much fun--show us your creative uses of the winter or holiday cut files.  Have you used any of the cut file tags for gifts?  How about creating a paper wreath or ornaments?  Traditional projects such as layouts and cards are always welcome as well.

To get this round started, I used the stitching snowflake and snowflakes from the cut file: Circles & Snowflakes. I wanted to add some shine by hand stitching with silver/white bakers twine and the Crate Paper Falala collection. The plaid prints are perfect this time of year and this red buffalo check paper that is in the collection was the perfect fit for my littlest in his Christmas pajamas!

 To add a little bit more color, I added strips of patterned paper from this collection at the top and bottom border. The snowflakes with messy silver threads is one of my favorite details on this design. It's whimsical and playful just like my mustache man! Check out more details on my blog.

Another look at how to mix up the cut files! Stitch on them, back them with paper, layer them white on white.

Onto some more inspiration from the team!

Kelly is up with this beauty using Mad for Plaid by Photo Play and the FaLaLa and HoHoHo cut file. I love that she already documented this December's hockey game and the toy drive collection they had that night.  Such beautiful paper backed cut file title along with the little stars.


Next up is Devra with the Fashionista frames cut file. I love how she personalized the cut file by duplicating it and welding it together to create this Brady Bunch style grid. Her title is perfection for the theme and the fun photos. She used Pink Paislee Wild Child and it is truly a playful collection full of pops of color!

Wendy is up to close out this year's last Free File Friday.  Wendy also went with the stitching star and Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa. I love the soft pinks and pastels with the large snowflake. The added snowflakes, sequins and paint splatters creates such a feel of fluffy snowflakes falling down. A beauty of a design!
