Butterfly Square Card

Today I am sharing a card made with 2 wonderful files (Butterfly Vine Background and 3D Layered Butterfly Collection Set ) from Filekutz by LisaJane and lots of bling. It is a square card, which I tend not to make very often. Most of my cards start with a 5x7 card base, but sometimes it is nice to do something different. After I cut the background from blue cardstock and layed it over the beige card base, it felt a little plain. The beige color showing through the blue cutout just didn't pop enough for me, so I went and grabbed a bottle of Champagne Stickles and filled in the flourishes. Then I added a couple of rhinestone flowers (from Creative Charms) and some pink pearls for the butterfly. Lastly I used my black pen to make a trail for the butterfly.

My Favorite Seaside Treasure

The smell of salt water, the sting of the year's first sunburn, kids wanting chips just to feed the seagulls...all things that remind me of our trip to the beach.  I had a wonderful time but could not wait to get back home to scrapbook some of the great pictures that were taken.
 LisaJane must have been thinking about my little man when she came up with the SEASIDE TREASURES file...okay, maybe that was just me when I saw the file and knew it had to be for "my favorite seaside treasure", my grandson, Caleb---gotta love that beach physique!!!
For this layout, I cut out the seashell border and placed it in between the strips of patterned paper.  I also created the title from the file, cutting it out several times and gluing them together to make it look and feel like chipboard.  I love everything you get in this file--several title options, the border plus that awesome shell flourish.....(see below for file contents and/or click on image to be taken to the store). 

SUPPLIES (other than cut file)
Papers by Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection
Stamp (for fence) from Art Impressions
Assorted Jolees
Prima Flowers

Thanks for looking....................Sharon

Warm Wishes Notecard

I haven't been scrapping in a while, but I've been doing quite a few notecards as we travel around as they are easier and don't require as much "stuff" to be dug out of the cabinets while we are traveling from place to place.

In honor of the recent time that we have spent on the beautiful beaches of Hatteras, North Carolina, I fell in love with this adorable little Beach Crab from the Sea Creatures Collection from FileKutz by LisaJane.  I thought he was perfect to grace the front of a little note card.  I wanted to mimic the warm sands and beautiful blue waters of the coast so I used a combination of textures on some cardstock to create a warm friendly card.

Here is a close up of the adorable cut file.

Hi all Eve here with you today , i have a layout i would like to share with you using the flower flourish accent file ....You can purchase it HERE  I have cut it out in plain white card stock and inked it with a variety of distress inks and then i have used Black Gold glimmer mist to give it a little sparkle ...and just to make it pop i dotted it with liquid pearls on the edges .I have also used the cutout file on the reverse side to do a little masking on the page before i turned it over to adhere it down ...
I have teamed it with some older kaiser paper range called ROUGH & TOUGH ...its a very versatile file to work with .

Thanks for looking
Eve xx
