It's so close now I can almost smell the new paper!
I am so excited for expo! I want to pack already. lol But since it's a bit early for that I played with some new paper instead.
Check out this pretty paper from My Mind's Eye! It's Now & Then Mildred, Girls. I wanted to try my hand at one of those cut backgrounds, so I did this on my silhouette. I also cut the wording that way. I just did the design myself. Here are some closeups:
I wanted the the feel of this layout to be sweet and soft, which is the feel I get from the photo. So I loved the light pinks and soft blue in the paper underneath and I went with stitching and soft embellies. I didn't want a lot of journaling, so I just put the important details on a heart and outlined it with a glittery pink gel pen.
I had this fun rhinestone butterfly in my stash and thought it would be a great addition. Then added the twine for a flight path. I always love to see a flight path for butterflies, just makes me smile. I double matted my photo, well maybe triple if you count the white edge it came with, in pink and then just a small edge of black to really drawn the eye.
In this last closeup you can see the stitching I did. I also outlined each heart with the glittery pink pen. The enamels, buttons and little lady sticker are all from MME also.
Make sure you swing by their booth at the Expo and get some of these yummy products for yourself!
See you there! :)Ange
