Butterflies in Love

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are enjoying the weekend. I am  really looking forward  the Portsmouth Craft show tomorrow. I am hoping to buy lots of crafty stash and meet up with one of my crafty friends for a bit of a catch up.

I have had this design in my mind for a while. With my husband being out most of today I had the chance to create it. I used lots of Snippets and it has butterflies so I would like to enter the Challenges on the Butterfly challenge blog V is for Valentine and Pixie's Snippets Playground week 163.


I like the idea of filling a page with squares and making them look a bit like stamps. None of the elements are too large so it is a perfect opportunity to use lots of snippets. I am on a quest to use up my stash of tiny useful bits. The background paper is in the style of an old French newspaper.


I used Sizzix dies to cut the heart and the letters. The scalloped square was cut with a Spellbinder die.


The butterflies were also cut with a Sizzix die.


I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  8. Hi Jackie, Saw you over at the Butterfly Challenge, and popped over to get a closer look at your wonderful inchie Valentine card. It's a delightful & pretty use of your snippets, and you were so clever to add in the Butterfly & Love elements too. Liked the idea of your postage stamp theme against that wonderful paper script. Unusual, and very pretty with a terrific design. Just became your newest follower, always nice to make a new card friend. Enjoy your craft show. TFS & Happy Valentine die.
