Good morning! Laura here today!
I love to scrap baby photos! The fabulous ModaScrap Blue Cotton Candy is perfect for those little baby boy photos!
Here’s how I created this project:
Step 1 – Trim one patterned paper to 11.5 x 11.5 – ink the edges using brown ink then adhere to a full 12 x 12 sheet of your choice and ink the edge.
Step 2 – Trim another patterned paper to 11 x 5 and ink edges.
Step 3 – Trim another sheet to 10 1/4 x 3 and ink edges.
Step 4 – Trim another sheet to 12 x 1 1/4 and ink edges.
Step 5 – Die cut a 4 1/4 circle using soft finish white cardstock and a 3 3/4 stitched circle from patterned paper –– adhere together.
Step 6 – Die cut two Valentines Edges from white cardstock .
Step 7 – Adhere all the paper like shown.
Step 8 – Adhere your double sided adhesive sheet to your soft finish white cardstock and die cut 3 flowers of your choice, the butterfly body, the circle and the tag from the Love, Life Tag. Then apply blue silk microfine glitter and rub with fingers to bring out the shine.
Step 9 – Die cut more flowers to layer using your white cardstock and the pieces of paper left from your trimmings and assemble flowers.
Step 10 – Die cut two of the butterfly overlays – one from white cardstock and one from a piece of patterned paper.
Step 11 – Die cut one ready to bloom using white cardstock.
Step 12 – Die cut one heart tag and one tree overlay using the Love, Life Tag die in white and one in patterned paper.
Step 13 – Assemble butterfly, tree, and tag keeping the pieces of hearts from the tree to make the trail for the butterfly.
Step 14 – Using the small circle die, die cut the words from the title sheet of the Blue Cotton Candy paper and the cut out the title piece.
Step 15 – Mat photo.
Step 16 – Assemble the layout!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello & Welcome! Samantha here. Today’s card is one of those cards that once you’ve put it all together, you love it so much you’d rather frame it then give it away! Well that’s how I feel about it anyways…
Step 1: Use both the Frame It – Stitched Rectangle and Frame It – Stitched Square die as shown below to create a ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 2: Stamp the Sentiment.
Step 3: Using shades of green cardstock and pattern paper die cut several leaves from Tropical Florals and Trio of Leaves.
Step 4: Arrange the leaves on a card front measuring 12.5cm x 17.5cm. When you are happy with the placement of the leaves adhere them down. Use foam tape to adhere the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
(Optional) Add machine stitched details
Step 5: Die cut the zebra and Giraffe die – assemble these as shown, tucking them behind the ‘photo’ frame die cut.
Step 6: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the hat and glasses from the Party Accessories die set.
Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Royal Blue and Fruscia). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Complete assembling the party accessories.
Step 7: Adhere the Party Accessories to the die cut animals. Adhere card front to a 5″ x 7″ card base. Embellish with googly eyes, sequins and a twine bow.
I love how this card came together – I think I’m going to have to buy a frame for it! The safari animals are that cute, I don’t think I could part with the card. Do you have projects that you end up just keeping for yourself?

It’s Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made for Easter! Easter is April 21 this year, so there’s still plenty of time to get a few craft projects done.
Happy Technique Friday!
Today, Els is using the new Large Elegant Easter Egg Die Set to create this beautifully simple card. It’s glitterally perfect for Easter, don’t you think?

It’s Karen here. I hope everyone had a fun and happy holiday. It’s a great time to create some fun cards to say “thanks” to our loved ones for coming to visit, for gifts we may have received, and lots of other reasons. I’m providing some inspiration today using the Snowflakes dies and some Silk Microfine Glitter.
What can I say? I love everything about Christmas – all the lights, the smells, the snow, the cold, hot chocolate, rosy cheeks, childhood memories and being with all the ones I love! I feel like a kid every time I hear a Christmas song and I cry watching all the happy-ending Christmas movies on TV. I hope that the magic of the holidays will fill your heart and that you’ll remember to enjoy every minute of the time spent creating the most wonderful memories with your loved ones.
