Here is the cut file I worked with:

I really love this cut file because it reminds me of Summer!  It's FREEZING here (and everywhere else) so this helped me to warm up!  I pulled out the older Vintage Bliss line from Simple Stories and paired it with a little bit of Echo Park.  My background is from the American Crafts Plus One collection.  I just all of these bright colors, and this cut files makes it easy to get a lot of colors & patterns in small bits all over the page.  I love backing die cuts with paper!  Fun and easy :)

I pulled out some really old yellow glitter Thickers...they worked perfectly for this layout.  I also added in a bit of gesso and gelatos here...I feel compelled to add some color smudges on all of my pages...haha!

Here you can see the fun mix of patterns.  I can't even remember how many patterned papers I used to back this die cut...and since the triangles are small, the various patterns don't overwhelm the page.

And one more close up of the layers and pretty colors.

I hope this inspires you to check out the 17Turtles store and see for yourself how many fun cut files are there!  Be sure to check out all of the blog posts this week for your chance to win!
