All You Need is Love | American Crafts

Last week on the American Crafts blog was Silhouette week and I have a fun layout to share with you today using Silhouette sketch pens.

I love using cut files on my projects because they can add so much interest and detail.  I changed up the American Crafts "All You Need is Love" cut file by using it with sketch pens. I love the fun look!
