Hello Everyone!  I'm sharing a story in my Traveler's Notebook that usually would go differently.  We love to go pick strawberries, but with the virus, this year, we couldn't.  But thankfully, they were selling flats near us.  To tell this story, I used the new Berry Sweet cut file!

I cut the strawberries twice with two different pattern papers.  On the left side, I used the two pattern paper cuts together, but on the right I used just the outside of the cut file.   For my title, I used the 'berry sweet' in the same two pattern papers.  I stamped the flowers and leaves before adhering the 'berry'.  I added machine stitching to the pink pattern paper and tucked 'sweet' partially under.  I love the stamped and the tucked under look because they both give an illusion as being within the design.

I used the Flowers cut file to accent the 'berry' and used them a lot more on the right side.

I penciled in and typed my journaling with my typewriter.  To bring in some of the bold black stamping on the left, I used a small strip of black cardstock under my photo, and then framed with the berry outline and flowers cut files.

I left some white space on this side since so much color and texture on the left.  But did add a die cut, another flower and a little stamping at the top to finish it.
