Spring Cleaning Serendipity

I did some spring cleaning in my studio today - I have a bad habit of letting all of my test cuts and leftovers pile up everywhere, so it was time to get some of them sorted out! It was fun to revisit some of the designs I have made over the past few months.

As I was stacking some of the finished cuts to store in a plastic case, I happened to layer the large scalloped frame on top of the tulip mesh. What a great combination this turns out to be! I have a photo that will look wonderful on this background.

Here is a LINK to the post about the Tulip Mesh. There are a few tips about using the "hide contour" function in that post.

Here is a LINK to the post about the full page scalloped frame. The file can also be cut for a solid full page square.

Sometimes, it pays to be messy - I hadn't thought of putting these two cuts on the same page, but I am glad I found out how well they work together. If you use this combination for one of your projects, I'd love to see a photo.

  1. You always inspire me - for a second there I was almost inspired to clean up my office/craft room too.

    But then I realized - I would never find anything as wonderful as you found!

    Sooo - maybe I'll clean tomorrow!

    Thanks for sharing!
