For my project today I am using the Happy Butterflies stamps and die set along with the Flutters & Bloom paper pad. I also have the Catherine Pooler Mission sequins mix that is the perfect mix of sparkle! I pulled out the Sangria ink pad from Catherine Pooler Designs to add some color splashes to my background. To do this I just add some ink to an acrylic block, add some water and use a paint brush to pick up color and splatter around the page.

 

 

I found this pretty cut file from Rulana S Cut Files and cut it out on some white American Crafts textured cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo. You can grab this cut file HERE! I backed the cut file with papers from the Flutters & Blooms paper pad. For the leaves I wanted a plain green so I did the direct to paper technique with my Spruce ink pad to create the perfect colored cardstock to match. All you have to do is take your ink pad and swipe it gently across some Catherine Pooler smooth white cardstock.

 

I stamped out a few butterflies from the Happy Butterflies stamp set in Sangria ink and cut them out using the coordinating die cuts. I created a few little clusters around the page using flowers and butterflies that I fussy cut from the Flutters & Blooms paper pad. To finish off my layout I added my journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter and added some strips of Flutters & Blooms pattern paper to the top and bottom of the page. Here is a look at my completed layout!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Make sure you head on over to the last stop of the hop HERE! Leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the ACOT shop! Have a great day!
