I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Spring Layout

Hi all,

Today I am sharing a layout I made for a friend.

Most of the papers used were from a Finished in a Flash Kit from Paper Wishes that I have had in my stash for a while now. The only cartridge I used was Botanicals for the butterfly/floral cuts as well as the font.

Here is a close up of my butterflies:

I cut the images twice, once in patterned paper and once in vellum. I then hand cut out the butterflies so I could add some dimension to the them. I placed gems along the centers of all the butterfly cuts.

Here is a close-up of the Spring Title:

I used a Stampin'Up Sizzix Embosslits to make those tiny butterflies by the title. I then attached them to the paper using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher for the bodies. I used a Fiskars Border punch for the edge.

I added a few gem swirls from Want 2 Scrap that I picked up at a Scrapbook Expo.
