Creating simple embellies using your kit!

Hello! Today I would like to share a layout with you in which I created my very own embellishment using the March Kit by SFTIO! Since I'm a simple scrapper, I don't like spending more than 30-40 minutes on a layout. So I basically pull out the supplies that match up with the photos I'm working with and just run with it... I always use my photos to inspire me, not the product.

While I'm working on my layout, I like to find unique ways to use my embellies. I love making fun embellishments of my own to cut the cost of supplies... Having said this, I am going to share with you, how I created this fun butterfly embellishment on my layout.


1. First mist the butterflies and leaf with desired color of mist.
2. Once the mist is dry, staple one butterfly on top of the other. (I use my mini stapler by Tim Holtz. It's a must have!)


3. Adhere a piece of the hexagon chipboard to the center of the butterfly using a foam square.


4. Adhere a pearl to the center of the chipboard using a glue dot.


5. Decorate the butterfly with some bling from your stash.



Now what do you think? It looks easy right? And doesn't it look fabulous? I love mine and hope I was able to inspire you today!
