I thought it was going to be a lovely sunny day here today but it is cold and overcast, perfect scrapping weather! I have put this class together using some of the gorgeous new Pink Pailsee 365 degrees.
You will need.
1 piece of kraft paper
Pink Paislee 365 degrees paper – imagine, daydream, think big.
Pink Paislee 365 degrees flip notes journal pad.
Punches – Martha Stewart classic butterfly and Monarch butterfly. Tab punch.
Jenni Bowlin stick pin
1 small white brad
Orange embroidery thread
Small alphabet stamps
Thickers – delight and one other with a larger font.
Cut two pieces of Daydream paper approx 5.5 inches in height adding a tab shape the the side of the right hand piece. Ink the edges and stick them onto your kraft towards the left hand corner.
Cut a rectangle approx 6.5×8.5 inches from the Think Big paper, distress and ink the edges and stick onto your page at an angle covering the gap between the first two pieces of paper.
Cut out a rectangle of Imagine paper approx 4.5 x 6.5 inhes, ink the edges. Bend the top left hand corner around a pencil or piercing tool and once you have stuck this piece down secure the corner using a small white brad.
Pull out a sheet of the Flip journal note pad, ink the edges and stick it onto your page. I have also added a punched tab to the left hand side of the rectangle.
I have used an old photo which measures 3.5 x 4.5, matt your photo onto the Daydream paper and distress the edges.
To create the butterfly you will need one monarch and one classic punched butterfly, a Jenni Bowlin stick pin, a piece of lace and some embroidery thread.
Ink the edges of your two butterflies, cut out a small section of the lace and using some wire cutters snip the sharpe end off the pin.
Layer them all up and secure the pin in place with some embroidery thread, I have fixed the embroidery thread on the back of the butterfly with a small piece of sticky tape.
To add the extra detail to the top right hand corner, cut a small strip of paper ripping one edge. Add a piece of lace on top and secure with some embroidery thread. Punch out two of the classic butterflies, ink the edges and stick them together. I always add a spot of silicone glue under each wing to give extra dimension. Stick a few adhesive pearls down the middle.
Add your title and journaling. I have distressed the edges of my kraft paper and also added an extra butterfly made in the same way as the one in the right hand corner.
I hope you enjoy the class and if you don’t mind sharing your layouts we would love to see what you create, just add a link into the comments.
