A Passion For Papertrey


I've been feeling a little mojoless at the moment, it could be that Summer never really arrived here in the North East & that Autumn seems to be upon us! 

I have had a relaxing week & a half spending time with my hunny for days out & relaxing while he has 2 weeks off work. As I now work from home I have done the odd thing here & there related to work but have tried not to to give myself a break.

Anyway, A Passion For Papertrey have a NEW challenge up. This time it's Papertrey Ink Design Team inspiration.

My card was inspired by one of Dawn McVey's. Finding Dawn's blog was one of the first ways I got to know about PTI & fall in LOVE with their stamps & products!

I love the simplicity of Dawn's card & also the colour & mix & match of products used.

I don't own the Love Lives Here set, but it is slowly making its way onto my wish list!

So, for my card I used the PTI Doily Die, Butterfly Dreams die & a Martha Stewart Punch. The hearts on the Martha Stewart butterflies is from Little Bitty Bird. The sentiment is from Commnique Curves $5 Set. The DP is PTI Bitty Dot Basics 2008.

In the photo above you can see that I go my sewing machine out! This rarely happens for a one off card as it doesn't have a permanent place in my current studio. This will change once my NEW studio is up & running! More on that later! 

Anyway, I might just squeeze in another card before we head to the movies tonight for a little Fright Night 3D! 

Catch Ya Laters!

I love the layers that you have put on the butterlies :o) They are really sweet ... I am using butterflies a lot at the moment, and as soon as I can get a stamp like this, I might have to try layer my butterflies too :o)

Fabulous card! Love how the butterflies seem to flutter off the card and how the colors pop against the white background. Congrats on your new studio :)
