Good morning! 
I have a second post for you today as a guest designer, showing off some of those fabulous new cutting files and digital papers from Lisa over at Pretty Paper Graphics. I am totally in LOVE with her files, so head on over to her website and check it out. You won't be disappointed!

I am showcasing the Fishy Friends cutting files today and they are too adorable! So adorable, that I had to make two projects to share!
I used some Kraft and Enchanted Evening PaperTrey Ink cardstock for the base and first layer. The pattern paper is from the Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 paper stack. I also used some white cardstock and Core'dinations textured cardstock.
 For this project, I created a circle shaped card base in Silhouette Studio by welding two circles together. I added the bubbles and the coral cuts from the same cut file. Isn't this shark just the cutest? I love his little smile! So I just pictured him telling someone, "You're Jawsome!" The sentiment is from the Pink By Design  Crikey stamp set. The super cute speech bubble comes from the Pink By Design Speech Captions. :)

And I of course had to cut this little angry fishy! How could I not?
I created this card base in Silhouette Studio by welding the two shapes together. I created the additional layers by using the internal offset feature. The pattern paper comes from the Summer Brights Chevron & Stripes and the Summer Brights Circles & Spots digital paper files over at Pretty Paper Graphics. I used some Kraft and White PaperTrey Ink cardstock and Core'dinations. I've really begun using a lot of Core'dinations paper because I find that the Cameo cuts it beautifully!
Look how perfect these digital papers print out! I printed them out on Bazzill cardstock with my Epson printer. I have started printing my own pattern paper, because I find that it doesn't actually take much ink. I also got to use some of the new Nautical Twine from Trendy Twine finally! I've had it for the past week or so and it's just been sitting there, but it worked perfectly with the colors in these papers! The sentiment on this project is from the Pink By Design Attitude stamp set.

That's it for me today! I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend! :)
