Now for this month's theme: Spring!

All of the designers for this hop are using the April Free File that you see above as your gift for hopping along with us. I made a card and also a small Easter treat box using pieces of the free file as well as some of Samantha's other products.

The card was pretty easy. I stamped the background, them smudged in the edges with a dauber to get a softer look on the outside of the stamping. Then, having cut the April Free File with both yellow and blue card stock papers, I layered them in the center of the card and finished it off with an enamel dot.

To make the box, I ungrouped the pieces of the file, deleted the original heart pattern that was on the top of the box, and replaced it with a flower from the April Free File. By cutting it from yellow paper and replacing the heart with a flower, I take a typical Valentine's Day file and give it a springy upgrade!

Supplies: Samantha Walker Silhouette Studio Files (Free April File from Samantha Walker and heart lace clam shell box). Samantha Walker Just Rite (Sweet Lace Background Stamp).
