Every now and then I have a day in the studio that just feels right. I spend hours playing and in the end I think "that was a good day's work".
Creative Impressions embellishments worked really well here. The little black frame popped on a frayed white bit of crinoline fabric, framing a glittery white butterfly fastener. The butterfly wings are bent forward a little for dimension. I stapled my "birthday greetings" from Creative Impressions message twill ribbon. I absolutely love these ribbons. A "impressive" selection and variety of messages makes them a real asset for your stash.
The paper is an all time favorite, Tim Holtz' "Wallflower Paper Stash". The different colors and graphic elements in the pages called for a different spin on each card, but using mostly the same design elements. The TH Botanical die cuts are a nice complement to the Wallflower papers. Great way to use up your bits that you can't bear to throw away!
Monochromatic cards are always a favorite in my classes.
Some cards have a library pocket on front containing a decorated tag.
I love the matte, muted colors in Creative Impressions new button collection.
I hope you're getting some play time and finding that satisfaction that comes from adding just the right embellishment!
