Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to be a guest over at  Technique Tuesday this month and to be a part of the May Release Blog Hop today! Hopefully you have arrived from Allison Arbour's blog.  I am your second stop in the hop and today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you.

I was sent the pretty Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set to create with which I've used on my page today along with the Essentials Stitched Labels Dies .

I love that there are three different sizes of butterflies in this set and a lovely selection of sentiments to choose from as well.  I stamped the butterflies and sentiment in black ink onto plain white cardstock then cut them all out ready to use.  I also used the largest label die to cut a tag to go behind my photos.
As I put my page together I thought about adding colour to the butterflies, however I found they stood out and looked gorgeous all on their own in black and white.  I love the looks of them in contrast to the other splashes of colour on the page!

I added machine stitched butterfly trails to the page for each butterfly using my sewing machine, then stitched along the journaling strips and sentiment as well to add some subtle texture.

You can see my process in the video below (expand to full screen for best viewing)...
