These are so droolworthy right? My husband is so sweet that he walked all the way to the MT Expo booth and even get me some extra MT that I didn't order.
Today I am going to share a butterfly layout with you using Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection. I am currently Maggie Holmes overdose as I have created 3 Project Life spread (in 2 pages of 12x12) and 3 12x12 layouts with this collection. Yepes, I have been super productive as I could barely sleep with my huge tummy.
I am gonna send this layout to join Crate Paper Creative Weekly challenge for March: Wings. This is a layout made for a dear friend who love paper crafts and dogs as much as I do. She came visiting me and my dogs twice and never fails to bring them bone-us (bone as bonus treats).
The initial title was 'Good Friends Never Fail To Bring You Bone-us' and but my husband said the bone-us sounds inappropriate in US slang (yougetwhatimean??). So I change it to 'Sunshine' instead and I think the new title suits perfectly. Love the big, bold gold glitter Thickers.
If you notice, I have a lot of butterflies fluttering in this layout. I do not have any butterfly punches with me as you know I have limited scrapbooking tools at mum's place. So I resort to make my own butterflies without punches & die-cutting machine. I only fussy cut some butterflies and pattern papers, added a bit of die-cut butterflies from the ephemera pack (from Maggie Holmes collection too).
Here's the little tips for cutting your own butterflies.
You need various sizes of die cut butterflies from the Ephemera pack, pencil, pattern paper and scissors (of course you need your favorite pair of scissors for fussy cutting!)
Trace the butterfly shape on your choice of pattern paper.
And start cutting away! Then you would have perfect sized butterflies (in patterns and colors of your choice) without getting punches / die-cutting machine. Oh did I mention that fussy cutting is therapeutic? ;)
Thanks for looking and I hope you have a good weekend ahead, XoXo.
