Heartfelt Creations Wednesday: Butterfly Medley Layout

Hello Friends!

Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  This is the second Wednesday in February, and that means it’s time for another fabulous release from Heartfelt Creations! This week, we are introducing another gorgeous springtime collection: Butterfly Medley. 

Are you longing for springtime…dreaming of sunny hours spent in a lavish flower garden where butterflies flit lazily from blossom to blossom? Heartfelt Creations invites you to revel in the beauty of springtime with the release of the Butterfly Medley Collection of stamps, dies, and papers. This uplifting collection is bursting with bountiful botanical roses and a kaleidoscope of fanciful butterflies. Soft shades of pastel peach, lilac, sage, lemon, teal and pink are the perfect counterpoint for the bleak, grey days of mid-winter. Beautifully landscaped backgrounds include pastel plaids, cheery polka-dots, flowing script, classic stripes, elegant flourishes, seed packets, garden themed sentiments and images. Six hand drawn stamp sets featuring botanical roses and butterflies can be paired with two sets of dies, allowing you to stamp and die cut a host of embellishments with a single pass through your die cutting machine. You’ll dream in beauty, plant seeds of encouragement and reap a harvest of creativity when you design with the Butterfly Medley Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Oh, yes!  Heartfelt Creations, take me away!  LOL

I did a lot of distressing and layering on this layout.  Don’t you just love that plaid paper?  And every garden needs a rusty picket fence, wouldn’t you agree?

    I love the butterflies and the flowers in your beautiful project, but the detail that makes my heart sing is the seed packet, “Hope – plant carefully and water everyday” – darling! This project really does bring spring to mind. It will be here before we know it! Thanks for sharing the how-to’s of this project. I love it!
