TearDrop Butterfly Challenge - BBTB

CONTEST...yep, there is a contest going on over at the Bitten By The Bug site for a chance at a $50.00 gift certificate from Hallmark Scrapbook....(just in time for those new cartridges) or a chance to win that MISSING DESIGN STUDIO MANUAL......this is an awesome manual designed by Brandi Gore...check out her web site for more details.......Click here for more details on the contest.
So this week Regina from the BBTB site asked us designers to use the Cricut TearDrop cartridge...she chose the butterfly cut this time.....I love that butterfly!!
I used lots of Prima flowers across the top with some old buttons I just found this weekend at an Antique shop.....yummy!!!
I also did a couple of new things I haven't tried before....while "blurfing" the other day I got lots of of them was...I took a long strip of satin ribbon and sewed a gathering stitch down the middle and gathered it up for a ruffled look....then the next thing I did was to make my own paper....I got the idea from Kim Hughes....I looked up the definition to butterfly and copied it over and over in Word....changed the font to something gorgeous, then printed it out on cardstock, cut the butterfly out and tah-dah....I made my very own one of a kind butterfly!!!
And then I randomly stitched around the edges....I really love how that looks and have never tried it....but I'm sure glad I did!!! The delicious paper is Basic Grey's Boxer line (found it at Hallmark Scrapbook) and the little stamps in the corner are by Kim Hughes (I buy them at Cornish Heritage Farms)....I found those little pearls on the butterflies antenna at my LSS...they are by Kaiser Scrapbook. THANKS for stopping by today....have a wonderful week!!!!

Pin It!
