When my son was little, we made it a point to take him to the beach with the main goal of making sandcastles. It's one of those events that repeat every summer in my scrapbooks. I will admit to liking themed beach products to tell the story. However, I also want something unique to differentiate one summer from another. The beach themed cut files from Amanada Robinson Studios definitely fit the bill.

This particular set of cut files also comes with a PDF of printable designs. I cut one of the printable 3x4 cards into a square and used it for my title block. The cut file is simple, yet it immediately adds themeing to non-themed patterned papers.
I almost used this cut file with some photos of my son playing in the sandbox in the backyard. It's certainly one of those cut files that can be used in a variety of layouts despite the fact that it's themed. I cut this in kraft paper to connote a beach theme. If I had cut it in a different color paper, I could have used it with photos of my son building with blocks or legos.
