Life Butterflies

Good morning!  The projects for the Say It With Letters Design Team this month were so fun!  Some of us received a new word set, "You & Me" letters.  Take a look at Deb's blog for a peek at the awesome things the dt did with them!! The rest of us, including me, received the new {butterfly collection}.  It's so fun to see how everybody's projects turned out so different.

Here's mine set:

I had so much fun making this pretty set for the wall of my stamp room (/bedroom/school room/tv room/play room, etc)!  I used just 1 design of paper- it's from LilyBee Design, but on the last little butterfly I turned it over and used the plaid side.  For the quote I used my computer.  I wanted it to have the look of large vinyl letters or rub-ons so after I formatted the quote to the size I wanted, I printed it on Vellum paper (not cardstock since it's thicker and would show more).  You have to wait a few minutes for the ink to dry but then I just cut them out trimming close to the edge. I used spray adhesive to adhere them to the butterflies and once it dried they really do look almost like rub-ons!

I used some black rub-ons to add flowers and swirls and embellished them with just a bit of bling and a big paper daisy or two.

I haven't been able to get a really good shot of them hanging on my wall but let me just say that I love them!!  Check out Deb's blog to see what the other girls made - maybe we'll inspire you to give them a try!! :)

Have a great weekend my friends!
