Natural Beauty

As some of you know that I made this layout some time ago... over 2 years!! But I've never really thought of this layout as mine because I made it with eBay in mind. So I thought I would give it one last try on eBay to see how it does. Wish me luck with re-listing! -Kate
This layout is not my normal layout. What I really mean is that I don't do elegant and pretty very often. But the set up of the layout is the same old me! I LOVE how this one turned out. I'll be sad to see it go... this one I'll be selling on eBay. I look at it as Simple Vintage...

This is what I used:
IndieArt Cricut Cart - Butterflies
Storybook Font Cricut Cart -
corner flourish and marquee title box.
Cuttle Bug Embossing folder - Script Texture
Cuttle Bug Embossing folder - Divine Swirl

Thank you for taking the time to look!


More details of the layout...
Something was missing when I cut this butterfly with my Cricut. I decided it needs something else so I decided to try punching some holes on both sides of the wings. That did the trick!! I put cream paper behind the holes to make it look a tad more like a Monarch butterfly. It was fun to alter this, already pretty, butterfly cut into something even more beautiful!

The "Natural Beauty" is a rub on.

I used the technique where you ink the embossing folder first and then emboss your paper. I looks so neat. I used a sand color ink so the cream paper would look old. The picture doesn't do it justice... it turned out so beautiful!

I made a hiding tag to go behind one of the big photo mats. It is made for 2 extra photos or journaling spots. I don't know about you but I take way too many pictures!

I fell in love with this neat flourish that I decided looks really neat as a photo corner embellishment. I also used it on my "My Hero" layout.
Here you can see the embossing. Also you can see how the pop dots have made the butterfly look like it is about to flitter away! Lovely...
Here is a picture with the layout tilted to see the Butterflies getting ready to lift right off the page.(Your welcome to copy my designs for you own personal use,
but please don't recreate to sell...thanks a bunch!)
