*NEW* Video Tutorial: Watercolor Background Technique

BRIMayWeek4Tiff1Hello Everyone!

So, this is the layout I made to commemorate the one time I ran (and peed my pants and was caked with loved bugs and had to walk some of it) to benefit a fellow Stroller Warrior who is also a Gold Star Wife! We ran a 10K the same day she ran her very first 10K! It was a special day for the Warrior Princess Run!

Read more details and view the tutorial today on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog!

The Stamps of Life: Swirls4Background

When I made this card, it took my back to my early days of stamping! I used to paper piece EVERYTHING and I loved anything birds and trees! My style has evolved, but it was super fun to break out some “old” moves.

This card uses The Stamps of Life brand new Swirls4Background stamp and the Trees2Build stamp set!

What are some of your “old” moves? I’d love to hear! Don’t forget to check out the gallery for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for visiting,

Dreams Take Flight

Dreams Take Flight…

This card means a lot to me!
I feel like everything is coming full circle for me.
When I first moved to the desert, I felt so lonely and COMPLETELY out of place…
I was a new mom, without my husband most of the time, had very little friends and didn’t have many hobbies.
My friend introduced me to stamping!!!!
Which led to scrapbooking,
which led to cardmaking,
which led back to stamping :)
Since 2006, I have made many friends and have made strides in my stamping.
I feel like dreams really DO come true as cheesy as that sounds!
This card uses the dearly beloved Fairytale Limited Edition kit from
Odd Bird Planet!
