SHINE. You smile. I smile.

Hey everyone, Jung here!  Today, I'm sharing a scrapbook layout with you of my younger daughter.

One line from my journaling says "You sure make me work for that genuine smile, but when you do, you shine!," and it's totally true.  We even have a joke in our family that she has a Chandler smile, lol.  (If you watch Friends, it's the episode where Chandler & Monica take engagement photos.)  I hope her smiles make you smile, just like it does for me!



I took these photos of her while we were at the pumpkin patch, so I wanted to use fall colors on the layout.  I made my own fall embellishments using My Favorite Things fall florals stamp set and matching dies.  I just got this set and I absolutely love it!!!  The stamps are small enough that I was able to use my beloved hero arts ombre ink pads; One of my favorites for fall colors is butter to orange!  I did add a little bit of clear wink of Stella on top of the florals, but it's hard to show in the pictures.

All the papers I used are from a holiday 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey, Juniper Berry.  When I bought the paper pad, I knew I would be able to use some of the papers on non-holiday layouts...that black paper with the florals is perfection, and I wish I could have a paper pad full of just that paper!!!



The clear acetate gold E is from Maggie Holmes confetti acetate letter set.  I used my Lawn Fawn Milo's ABCs stamp set to stamp part of the title "You Smile. I Smile."  (love that)  I also pulled out my collection of enamel dots in matching colors to add the finishing touch to my layout.  You can find similar ones like EP the story of fall, and EP the story of our family.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to check out the shop for lots of fun goodies, and have an awesome Wednesday!

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&#…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew, one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog, and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN!

With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products.  
First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI, then turned on the music and sat and colored.

  I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vellum and wrapped it around the card …
