Franken-tastic Projects from the Design Team

Our new design team is Franken-tastic! We asked them to design some fun projects using the new print and cut set "Franken-tastic".

It's a new set of printable A2 cards and elements that's a bit of switch from our usual cut files.

They can be printed out on card stock from the pdf or used in the Silhouette cutting machine and other cutters that do "PNC."  Take a scroll down here and see all these trick or treat goodies.

Fresh Paper Strawberry Box

We picked a beautiful paper treat fresh from the garden, just for you.

Try a taste of the "Fresh Strawberry Box"
This week's inspiration came from the grocery store. As usual I'm always drawn to the beautiful displays of fresh strawberries in the produce section this time of year.  I couldn't resist bringing home a couple big containers.  This years crop are really sweet, perfect for a healthy snack.  The rest I froze on a cookie sheet several hours, then added them them to a zip lock bag in the freezer. We'll use them in our smoothies for the mornings.
I'm displaying my "Fresh Paper Strawberry" in my kitchen.  No need to freeze. I know it will stay fresh all through summer.
I'm working on a couple photos to show how easily this came together and I'll post that a bit later.
