Memories: Heartfelt Creations

Its that time of week again and i have a beautiful layout to share with you which i designed for Heartfelt Creations.  The Butterfly Medley collection is perfect for cards, and also wonderful for layouts as well.

I love chunky layers and using chipboard whenever possible.  The Botanical Rose in this collection i just stamped, molded and inked.  The photo is of our Granddaughter, she is such a cutie patootie.


here are some detail images- first one is the corner flower detail


detail of the layers-many of my projects are paper heavy--lots of layers--


left page detail- there is a paper in this collection that has the peek a boo corners in the paper, i just cut into them, folded them back and tucked some Creative Embellishments Chipboard in behind.
