April Scrap That! Kit - Madame Butterfly

Hello everyone! 

I could not wait to create a layout using the April kit from Scrap That!  I love this photo of my cousin and my daughter.  My daughter truly loves my cousin and you can see the genuine love they have for each other in this special photo.  My daughter is not so small how time flies!

The Madame Butterfly Kit features the Gabrielle collection from Bo Bunny.  I love the die cut circle included in this collection.  I used it as the framework for the photo. I tucked it inside the butterflies which I cut using my craft knife. 

The liquid pearls were also included in this kit this month. The color is amazing!  Here is a close up photo of the liquid pearls and some detail cutting that I did to create a photo corner.  I used my Fiskars decorative scissors (Clouds) to create a scalloped border around my distressed circle.  You can also see where I have triple matted the photo.  This is a really easy technique which packs a huge punch!

You can always find the best embellishments in the patterned paper itself!  You just need a bit of patience and a craft knife or detail scissors.  I usually use both when cutting intricate designs.
