Personally, I prefer using free gsd files as you simply download them and then import them into your library. Then you can use them as you wish. But it's up to you. There's more information on how to use these files on websites and forums such as Two Peas in a Bucket and Silhouette Plus.
So I've been looking around at all of the designs available and there are so many! They range from basic to pretty intricate designs and I thought I'd share some of the ones I thought were pretty darned cool.
1. Bunnies and Trees window pop up card
I saw this design on Carol's blog, and thought it was very sweet. It's great for anyone who wants a more simplistic but still Rob Ryan inspired design, with the added bonus of it being a pop up card.
2. Pretty hibiscus design
Those who know me personally know that I love hibiscus flowers (as well as the tea!) and this design (link goes to direct download) by Ennej is very pretty and versatile.
3. Sweet Heart Square Frames
I think that these sweet heart square frames by Leza at Krewella are very versatile and could be stretched to mat a 6x4, or could be used to mat Polaroids, Instagram or similar images.
4. Sweet mushrooms
These mushrooms by Shery are super cute, don't you think? I like the one with the floral pattern the best.
5. Chevron Trio by Daniela Dobson
Have you seen any good cutting files out there, particularly free ones? Do you use the Silhouette Studio software or prefer something like MTC or SCAL?
Have you seen that I've added my blog button to my sidebar? If you want to use it, you are more than welcome to!
Also, I won a Liebster blog award from Rachael... I'm going to think about who I'm going to nominate and the facts about myself in a future entry! Rachael's blog is super cute and fun, she def seems to be a kindred spirit of mine with tea and crafts two of her main loves!
