You Sparkle -TCS

Scrapbook layout created for The Cut Shoppe   - YOU SPARKLE  -

Hello there!

Happy Spring everyone!

today, I am up on the Cut Shoppe blog with a new project that celebrates Spring.  I wanted to bring lots of colors, and cheerfulness to this picture of my niece, so I chose the newly released Social Butterfly cut file as  a highlight of this piece.

For this layout, i highlighted just one of the butterflies of the cut file, and cut them in different sizes on white card stock.  Using the same images, I cut the butterflies on papers of the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dream collection, and vellum.  

I glued the butterflies just through the middle line, to each other, and the card stock.  Using a paper piercer, i poked holes, and stitched the body of the image, and added antennae to the images.  I made sure to leave the wings unattached so that they can be raised as in flight.

The title was created by stitching the word "Sparkle" from the 'Tis the Season cut file.  A bit of an offset makes the title pop, and the pink water color just complements the colors of the page.  Here is the final layout:

This layout is just so Springy, it  brings life to this very long winter.   The dimension and movement in the butterfly wings just add so much interest to the page.  Don't forget to check the Cut Shoppe Etsy store to pick these and the many beautiful designs available.

I hope this inspires you to work with colors and cut files.  As always let me know if you have any questions.

take care!
