My folks were visiting last week and while they were here my Mom and I decided to do a little redecorating. We call my Mom "Decorator Woman" because she is so good at setting up little vignettes. We both are so tired of winter and wanted a touch of spring. She set up a little butterfly vignette on the end table and it got me thinking about a cute wall decor item I had seen in my newest Simply Handmade magazine. Well it got my wheels spinning and inspired me to come up with this:
The background paper is Jack & Jill "How Sweet It Is" yummy stripe paper from the Quite Contrary line by My Minds Eye cut 8 X 10.
Then Breeze in Blue Hill collection by Crate Paper cut 6 1/4 by 8 1/4 and distressed.
The butterflies are all cut at 2 1/2" with the Once Upon A Princess Cricut cartridge.
I used both sides of Jack & Jill "Sooo Cute" engaging gingham and both sides of Jack & Jill "Life is Good" serene spots paper. I used one side of Little Boy Blue "When I grow Up" daydream paper.
All of these are also from the Quite Contrary line by My Minds Eye.
I outlined the butterflies with my Zig pure black writer and attached only the bodies to the background so that the wings can bend up.
I tied a ribbon by American Crafts around the mat.
Thanks Mom for the inspiration!
Happy Monday everyone!
