A Very Love-y Layout

Samantha here, and happy Valentine's Day! :)

I'm here sharing a super lovely, and love-y layout on this day of LOVE! :) I used a lot of goodies from the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop, so let's get to it! :)

See? Lot's of goodies!

I found this picture of my littlest Mann, when he was just a wee one! (3 years ago - ack! Where did the time go?!)
I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Hello Baby, and heat embossed on the photo itself! Shh, don't worry, the photo wasn't sad or scared!  I also used the Sharp Backdrops stamp set to add some texture to the watercolored areas.
And speaking of texture - I also added some more texture with a stencil and some embossing paste!
All of the papers and layers behind the photo are from the amazing Kiss Kiss paper pad - LOVE that paper pad - swoon!

I used some white paint to lighten up the busy background paper, and then when it was dry, I also added some watercoloring with the Worn Lipstick Distress ink! And for the title, I used my FAVORITE thickers - from the Amy Tangerine Stitched collection - Afterglow! LOVE that font!

At the bottom of the layout, I have a cluster of goodness!
The photo overlays are from this Crate Paper collection,  and the bow - LOVE the black and white polka dot bow!! - is from Maggie Holmes!
Oh, and I added some enamel dots and this wooden button from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection! LOOOOVE those wooden buttons!

Ok, I think that's finally it...ha ha!!
Are you shopping on this day of love? I hope so!!!
What better way to spend the day, than buying more things you LOVE and need?! *wink wink* *nod nod* ha ha!
Happy Valentine's Day!!

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
