Hello, it’s Diana and I’m here to share my love of butterflies with you. I never seem to tire of adding butterflies to my cards and fortunately, there are lots of butterfly items to play with from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I combined A Way with Words die cuts, stencils, and a new (to me and maybe to you!) technique with liquid pearls. Instead of using embossing paste or distress inks (my go-to items with stencils) I tested some liquid pearls and they work great! Paired with the incomparable Shimmer Sheetz and you have a very bright and sparkly card.
It’s the Die Cut Design Team’s turn to share their cards for this month’s Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge.
Our Challenge this month is ….. Anything but a Card – for our challenge this month let’s create a project that is anything but a card. Think along the lines of a home décor item; journaling; tags etc.

Calendar Makeover by Judi Kauffman
My friends love knowing that I will turn their old calendars into something brand new! It’s a January ritual that extends throughout the year. Here it is March and I’m still having fun slicing and dicing the pages…
I cut some of the pages and fold them into envelopes. I cut other pages into small pieces for layering onto card fronts and gift tags! If the paper is heavy enough, I’ll even die cut some sentiments.
When I’m done, I give some of the cards and envelope to the friends who donated the calendars! I get to have the fun of repurposing would have otherwise gone into the recycling bin, they get to enjoy the calendar again in its second incarnation.
It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet and simple card, just right for Valentine’s Day or whenever you want to send a rose to someone special. I love how the Flourished Heart forms a vase! Hand-write “You Are” above “Beautiful” and it says it all. Or if you don’t feel confident about your handwriting, leave the front as shown and simply add the words ‘You Are Beautiful’ (along with any additional hand-written or computer-generated message) to the inside of the card.
