Hi friends! Thanks again for all of your love and excitement about the new Gather collection! I can’t wait for it to start hitting stores and will keep you posted with links here as soon as it’s available!!
For now we will continue to share inspiration using the Bloom Collection and today we have a lovely scrapbook page for you from design team member Jessy! Butterflies are pretty much a design staple for me because they go with everything and I agree with Jessy that I could use them on almost any project! Today she’s showing us how to die cut your own custom butterflies using your favorite paper and a die cut machine like the Sizzix. So pretty and easy too! Read on for the full tutorial!
Hello! Today I’m back to share with you a layout that I designed using the Bloom collection and lots of butterflies. Just before I share with you my layout, let me walk you through a couple of supplies that I used.
The “Sweet Rose” patterned paper is absolutely stunning! I call it the “modern vintage” patterned paper. Not only does it have vintage elements, the colors are pastel tone & just lovely. Certainly my kind of colors to go whenever I scrap! I also love the touch of black that gives a little contrast to all the pastel colors. I just knew I had to use this paper on my layout. I’m always a huge fan for anything butterflies and had to include them on my layout. So with that in mind, I took out my Sizzix Bigshot Plus & Butterflies dies (similar) and roll them out on the Sweet Rose paper. Aren’t those butterflies so pretty? I love the color-block-looking butterflies!
I absolutely love how easy you can just “throw in” some butterflies on your project & they instantly look so classy + pretty. By overlapping the butterfly wings, they create a “moving flow” on the layout. I also decided to use a similar colored patterned paper called Blossom at the back of the cardstock to create a harmonious look to my overall layout + also chose the embellishments of the same colors to create a cohesive look as well.
By adding adhesive pearl/bling in the middle, they instantly give a classy look to the butterflies!
