IN HEELS

Happy Hump Day of the week everyone!

Have a quick layout to share and let you know more about the details of the project, and lastly my process

Firstly the layout
Supplies: Studio Calico Snow Cone add-on, Martha Stewart, Jenni Bowlin, Crate paper, American Crafts

I used a starburst stamp (Studio Calico Kit exclusive) and stamped with Versamark. I then used the pink glitter embossing powder from American Crafts. If you need sparkle, I'll recommend using the glitter embossing powders as they do not flake off at all once they are heat set.

Stitched through the Thickers. Helps them stay in place as well as adds dimension to it.

 
Just got the Jenni Bowlin Grandma Doily's punch. Perfect for making cute punch outs. Also stitched underneath my journaling, love the texture. 

Ran my page through the layout machine to add lines to the butterflies.

MY PROCESS | I had decided to make a page with the butterflies swirling about the place. First I decided to establish my background. Instead of a piece of patterned paper, I decided to use my starburst stamp. I then sketched out the path I wanted the butterflies to go.

After punching through a lot of butterflies, I placed them along the path. Of course, being flexible, or what some would call fickle, I did move it quite a bit from the inital path. I stuck the butterflies down with a teensy bit of tape, as I knew that I wanted to run stitching through it and did not want to gunk up my needle.

Next I added strips of paper to anchor the page further, before adding two hearts, one of them is two hearts layered on top of one another. I ran stitching through them too.

I then added the border scalloped strips and stickers, as well as a doily and I was done.

Thanks for looking!

Just also wanted to add that I have some new badges available in the shop



I can't wait to use these on my pages and Project Life next week, especially the adore set.
