Free Cut Friday!

We aren't dead.  Truly.  

We are back with a Free Cut Friday cut file today.  Here is what it looks like.

Here is what I made with it.

I took a frame and took the guts out.  I also took removed the points (the bendable metal pieces to secure the picture in).   I then cut the vinyl and adhered it to the glass.   I used E6000 to adhere the glass to the inside of the frame and voila!  


You can download the cut file HERE.

Crate Paper Notes & Things by Becky Williams

{Reported by Becky Williams}


Today I have the privilege of reviewing the beautiful new collection from Crate Paper called Notes & Things. It was one of my favorite releases from this past trade show so I jumped at the chance to get to review it here on The Scrap Review.

What I liked: 

- I liked the colors and variety of patterns in the collection. It made for easy mixing and matching. I liked the woodgrain mixed in with the florals and graphic patterns.

- I liked the HUGE variety of embellishments from chipboard frames, wood alphas, layered butterflies, tags and lots of ephemera to tuck in here and there. Some alphas don't stick very well but the wooden ones that I got to try were great. Crate Paper was very generous with what they sent: patterned papers, ephemera pack, Standouts (I used the butterflies and little pocket), rub-ons, chipboard frames, stickers and journaling cards.

- I especially like the rub-ons. These were so easy to use. Some rub-ons aren't made very well but these transferred to my projects very easily and I didn't have to press hard on the transfer like you have to with some.

What I disliked: I know that we are supposed to find something that we don't like about a product or collection but there honestly wasn't anything that I didn't like about this one.

What I made:

Crate Paper Notes &Things collection
Studio Calico Mister Huey spray mist (Dewey)

Bottom Line: 
I LOVED this gorgeous collection and wish that I'd had time to scrap with it some more. I will absolutely pull it out again when I get a chance. It is lovely and the variety of embellishments make it easy to scrap with.
