Butterfly embosslit--


Another card I found---on the Paper Pleasing blog.

Please note: The embosslits, particularly the Heart and Beautiful wings, will cut best and last longer if you use it on the flat part of the cutting pad (no flaps down).  If you use the #1 cutting mat as it shows, your embosslit will become damaged after a few uses.

Spring Ideas


Found these great ideas on a blog by the Flowerbug.  Beautiful!

All use the Easter Egg Decorating Kit.

Swap by Debbie Paisie

She used shimmer paint in a mixture of 70% alcohol and a little paint in a spray bottle to make those butterflies shimmer-also sponged it on the taffeta ribbon!

Swap by Heather Boedecker

She used the Joseph’s coat technique, I think: Wheel the vanilla CS with the Vintage Wheel, then, use embossing buddy and emboss Medallion with clear EP.  Then sponge different colors around and over the medallion stamp.

Fun Camping Page—I saw the sleeping bag idea on SCS and thought I had to do a page like that.  Aren’t these bears adorable?  Makes me want to have a campout just so I have pictures to scrap on here.












I’ve been wanting to try a border with the new scallop corner punch—a totally different way to use a corner punch.  I love the lacey look.  I used sets: For All You Do, and Le Jardin Botanique.  Colors: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla.
