Time To Step Out On Faith

In my opinion, there's nothing better than new products to get my creative juices flowing and boy oh boy did Buzz and Bloom's new products do just that!!!

I used CB Cherry Blossoms CB Butterflies and CB Vette Alphabet - Lower Case on this layout.


Since the photo is monochromatic, I was able too add lots of color using Glitz papers, smooch and shimmerz spritz, and Petaloo' s beautiful mulberry flowers and velvet butterflies. I attached them to the layout using Helmar Premium Craft Glue, it holds fabrics beautifully.

I started by arranging the chipboard around the photo as I would want I would want them once the layout was completed.

I then removed the photo and spritzed over the chipboard with electric blue smooch and barn door shimmerz spritz creating a masked background.

After adhering all of the elements in place with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, I colored the pretty blooms of the CB Cherry Blossoms with a white pen and then coated with white glitter.

I love how well the CB Vette Alphabet- Lower Case took to smooch spritz. They are so sparkly in person!! I inked the edges with black chalk ink to help them pop off the background.

Butterflies are one of my favorite embellishments. CB Butterflies has 12 gorgeous pieces that you can decorate to your heart's content. I used spritz, glitter, and pearls on this one.

Just take a look at all of the intricate details of this butterfly! I went a little bling crazy with spritz, pearls, rhinestones, and stickles, but I love the way it turned out.
