Love Layout Details Post

Hello crafty friends,
Here is the details post for the Love layout I created on Monday’s Cartridge Showcase: HERE

This is a view of the entire layout.

Here is a close up of the cute cluster of flowers and butterflies. All of the flowers and butterflies were created with the Sugar & Spice Cartridge.  The Scalloped circle frame as well as the love and square scallop were also created with cuts from this cartridge.

This shot shows the stamp I used to stamp the flowers. All the flowers started out as plain white. Even though the flower isn’t the same style as the die cut, just trying to center it and stamping it came out really nice. I was able to create the flowers in the different colors by simply using the different inks. I love how they are all coordinating colors so “matching” is a cinch!

This shot show the stamp I used for the butterfly wings. I then covered them with the Stardust Glitter gel. As you can see they are not perfectly mirrored wings but I think they still look great. I used the Sweet Leaf to stamp the wings as well as to sponge some on the center of the bodies. The butterflies started out as plain white die cuts as well Smile

Here is a list of the products I used to create this project:

Pemberly Workshop On The Go Stamp Set (Retired)

Other Products Used

Sugar & Spice Cricut Cartridge 
Saguaro Bazzill Cardstock (Olive-Green Cardstock)

I think this layout is so springy and such a wonderfully cheerful page. I am entering this into the Heart 2 Heart March Madness Challenge as it fits in with their Spring and Go Green challenges. The Go green is for using my retired stamps and the Spring is for well… the entire layout sings spring. Be sure to check out the other projects I made for the cartridge showcase HERE.

Thank you once again for sharing your crafty time with me!


  1. Lovely, Melin! Clever use of Stamps on the flowers and butterfly! I'll have to go through my stamps to see which ones I can use that way - I did use a Leafy one this past week in trying to do that technique...
