I LOVE the vibrant, bright colors of this BEAUTIFUL Free To Be Me paper pack!  What FUN!!
I used CTMH’s how-to-book, Make It From Your Heart, vol2, pattern #5 to create this 2 page layout.

I pulled out a spray pen, mixed bamboo re-inker(5 lines) & water (4 lines) to create a spray mixture and misted the background.  Then I used this beautiful paper to complete the sketch!

This paper pack includes TWO sheets of vellum!!  You can see the feather vellum on top of the bamboo cardstock in the picture below.  LOVE this vellum!!!

The Artbooking Cricut cartridge is PERFECT to cut out this 3 1/4” photo frame & these adorable banners. 

Look closely at the banner below,J while I did use our All the Details stamp set for the stamped banner pieces, take a look at the triangle banners. 

I stamped the triangle banners on the BACK SIDE of the designer paper & then cut them out of the patterned paper from the Free To Be Me paper pack.  I really like this red pattern design!
