Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Butterfly Bush Release Blog Hop + Giveaway (Total of $200 prizes)


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW CRAFT-A-FLOWER: BUTTERFLY BUSH RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Carol Hintermeier's blog.   A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

The new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: BUTTERFLY BUSH is actually a super easy layerable flower that is perfect for all sorts of projects.  I used the die set to create a new entry in my Me journal

I decided to use the flowers two ways in my page.  First, I used the new CAF: BUTTERFLY BUSH as part of the title journal card in the pocket page.  

I used vellum to cut the butterflies for this spread, I just love the softness and movement that they add to the page.

I created a large pocket to hold the story and once again embellished it with the CAF: BUTTERFLY BUSH, and vellum butterflies,

The design of the new Craft-A-Flower is indeed perfect for all sorts of projects, and those butterflies are to die for!
