Butterfly Garden

Our stunning July Kit, 'Butterfly Garden' has been inspiring some of our customers and I wanted to share some of their gorgeous layouts with you.

BFF by Lesley Sharpe
I love the way that Lesley has framed her photo but kept the rest of the page very simple this really draws the eye in to the photo.  Lesley has cut lots of pictures out from the paper and used some of them to make flowers to co-ordinate.  The effect is really stunning, thank you Lesley.

'I Love Skippin' by Sue Costi
These stunning papers don't need a lot of adornment but Sue has beautifully framed her photo with ribbons and some of her own flowers.  The sweet little book plates are a perfect place for giving details of the event.

'Fun with Daddy' by Sue Costi
I love the versatility of this kit and Sue has shown that it doesn't have to be all girly to make a stunning layout.  I love the way that the Bitter Chocolate cardstock shows up the die-cut pattern so well and the pleated ribbon ties everything in together perfectly.
 'Curly Locks' by Sue Costi
This gorgeous photo of Sue's daughter is shown off beautifully on this layout.  Sue has cut out the 'doilies' paper and used them, together with the Prima flower and bling from the Add-on Kit, to frame her photo.  The gentle subdued colours work wonderfully together.
 'You Are...' by Sue Costi
Sue has made this kit go so far and has produced another stunning layout using repeats of the same photo in colour and black and white and in differing sizes.  Once again, Sue has framed the photos so that your eye is brought to them and used the rose ribbon to great effect in a scroll design.
'Love & Adore' by Sue Costi
Another gorgeous layout.  Sue has added some of her own flowers and some cards from her own stash to the supplies in the kit which makes the kit go further.  Notice the sweet little metal bird from the kit that Sue has added to the right of the photo.  Thank you Sue for sharing your gorgeous layouts with us.

We have a few of the Butterfly Garden Kit left if you feel inspired by Lesley's and Sue's layouts and full details of the kit's contents can be found on the website.
