"Lovely" 12x12 Scrapbook layout // Cocoa Vanilla Studio Happiness Collection

Hey friends...Heather here..its been a minute since I've posted, but I am back and sharing a layout created with one of my favorite collection lately....Cocoa Vanilla Studios "Happiness Collection
I love this collection...its bright rainbow colors, gorgeous clear stickers, and the oh so pretty embellishments!
I started with a white piece of white cardstock as my background and cut a bunch of "spring florals" on my silhouette from Just Nick Studio also from white cardstock.
I backed the flower die cuts with patterned papers from the 6x8 paper pad.  Then, for a little sparkle and shine, I embossed the tips of the flowers with WOW sparkle silver embossing powder using Versamark embossing ink.
I adhered the flowers vertically just in the centers to keep the petals lifted and popped a few of them up with pop dots.  After matting my photo with a couple of patterned papers, I added stickers from the cardstock stickers and the clear stickers around my photo and layered underneath my large flowers.  I love the clear stickers in this collection...they mimic watercolor patches without breaking out the water!  

To embellish the layout, I added some matching butterflies and my title die cut from the ephemera package.  To finish up, I added Nuvo drops and Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the center of a couple of large flowers.

Its good to be back and I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my layout!  Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to know what you think.  Please feel free to leave a comment or questions below. Then, head over to the shop to get your hands on this collection before its gone!
Enjoy your weekend!

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…
