Butterflies & Easels
The Butterfly Prints stamp set & easel cards are my favourites at the moment, so I managed to persuade the demo working with me at this event - Janine Pearce that we couldn't make a punch art card which was her idea as I don't do punch art (sorry for those that love punch art & attending). She graciously allowed me to chose as our project an easel card using butterflies! Though we are doing punching out of butterfly shapes when I think about it.
Patrice from our team had recently made an easel card with a photo frame - so we added that in to create a bit more pizazz.
The only other comment I have to make is we chose to use Kaleidoscope DSP as Rachael refused to use it on her backpack & both Janine & myself love Kaleidoscope DSP which will retire in 18 days time on March 31st.
