Butterfly Beauty Mini Sampler for Craft Crop to Aid Refugees

Are you ready for another quick post? This is another project for my Craft Crop to Aid Refugees happening this weekend. I wanted to have something different than a card for a little variety. I found a great sampler on Pinterest, by Debbie Chronister, but it was just a little too involved, so I decided to make it smaller using a Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper for a base instead of a 12 x 12 sheet. Besides, the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper was backordered until Mar. 18, which was the only source of 12 x 12 wood grain paper, so it would be too late for the event. So I adapted and changed up the design to make it simpler and smaller, but kept that delicious base colour palette of Sahara Sand, Fresh Fig and Soft Sea Foam. Although the design itself is 6" x 6", you can mount it on a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and use and 8" x 10" frame, or put it in a 6" x 6" shadow box frame. It features the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies.

  • The sentiment is from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set, which I love, especially if you have a lot of women in your family! The diamond shape, which is so appropriate, is from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.
  • The lattice work edgelit is from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies which are just gorgeous, a must have from the Occasions Catalogue as far as I'm concerned!
  • An old favourite from the Holiday Catalogue, which you can still order, has shown up here. Can you spot it? Yes, it's the little milk can from the Country Home stamp set. It's stamped here in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Fresh Fig card stock, but alas, you must fussy cut it. Thankfully, it's an easy shape to cut out. The little sprigs inside it are die cut from Soft Sea Foam using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits, which also cut both layers of the three butterflies you see in this photo.
  • The butterflies are actually part of the composite butterfly dies, but were just trimmed out of them and the layers glued together.
