Pretties

Good day! How are you? Happy to 'see' you!

'Twas a very relaxing weekend here at the Martin household! We worked on a couple jigsaw puzzles and went out to dinner Saturday. I made a pot of soup yesterday, had that cat nap I mentioned Friday and finished this page for Kraft Journal's 3rd Challenge.


It's a hybrid page using digital patterned papers from a Two Peas in a Bucket kit called 'The Best Things - Papier Collection'from Design by Anita. I really like these papers! The colors and designs are perfect for a vintage page of some pretties I've collected lately.


I realized that I've been neglecting my Silhouettedie cutter so I used it to make the page title and butterflies. One of my favorite scrapbookers, Nichole Magouirk, who is doing a new series of how-to videos on Two Peas in a Bucket called 'From Start to Finish' often uses three die cuts stacked on top of each other to create her own chipboard! I tried it for my title and really like the texture it adds!


The butterflies are made with Kraftstock, layered with vellum, stitched down the center and then topped with some pretty little paper flowers. These sweet flowers were a thank you gift for placing on order at Perfectly Pretty on Etsy.


More vellum was combined with some of the digital patterned paper to create my journaling tag. I used an old Sizzix die for that.


As usual, I've included hand stitching, inked edges, jute and border punches. I keep these items close at hand since they tend to make an appearance on almost every project!

I hope you enjoyed my page! And I hope you have a wonderful Monday! :) Kathy
