My friend Yuki (who has every die cut imaginable) was sweet enough to let me use them to cut several things before she leaves for 2 months on an extended vacation. I will miss her! So I cut some purses & some butterfly's- Not really knowing what I would make with them at the time. I just picked some pretty papers that I had brought with me. So the other night I started playing & this is what I ended up with. I actually used scissors & trimmed the butterfly into this shape (it was a little too big before) I made the flower from coffee filters & used glimmer mist in Scarlet watered down to get the color. The paper for the butterfly is Basic Grey's new Lemonade (dandelion) the stripes are fancypants (lovebird). I actually used my sewing machine on this one, you can see it a little in the close up. I am leaving tomorrow morning to Grapevine, TX for "Heirloom's Rubber Stamp & Paper Art Festival" I can't wait! Hopefully I will see lots of new things & come back with lots of ideas.

My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
