HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!
I have been cleaning out my studio and re-organizing all my paper. I need to clean of my desk so I can SEE my Cricut Expression.. I forget I even have it most of the time. I've had a few gently reminders to get that machine dusted of an get using it. A few weeks ago I was shopping at ROBERTS CRAFTS and I won a FREE Cricut cartridge. Then I was notified from Amy that I won a cricut cartridge she was giving away.. I AM SOOOO EXCITE to play with the cartridge Amy is sending.. It a Home decor cartridge... I bought a pack of vinyl a year and a half ago at the scrapbook expo and I have never used it... I think it might just get cut very soon.
During all this cleaning I decided to get to a project I have had in mind and sitting on my desk for well over a year.. We took the family to the Zoo a few weeks ago and I really studied the butterfly and bug collections there. I love all the vibrant colors and patterns on the wings of the butterflies. I decided that the "Mariposa" paper pack from "Die-cuts with a view" would be a perfect collection of paper to use.. When I had this project in mind I had the traditional version of a collection in mind but wanted to really give it a twist.. I decided to go with a flight pattern. And Rainbow color order as well. I am thrilled with the way it turned out.. The Lattice
die-cut from Stampin' Up was a great fit to jazz up the white background with out taking away from the butterflies..
When I was done I had a gathering of butterflies staring up at me from my desk.. So I decided to make a few little cards to showcase the little guys.. I Love Kraft paper it just makes everything look amazing...
Hope you all enjoyed my butterfly projects.. Stop by tomorrow for a new Cinema Saturday challenge...
