Another Flutters By

4 Nov

I do love butterflies. Today I’m sharing another journal. This one has some funky elements in it like half page envelopes (most of the rest of mine are full sized), colorful tabs and of course, pages that are lined on one side and blank on the other. If you look near the bottom of the journal, you’ll also see the charms that are at the end of the bookmark that is attached to the top of the spiral…I love it when I can’t actually LOSE the bookmark.

The butterfly medallion is made from tw0 die templates S4-233 Labels Nine. I just used two consecutive sizes and placed their points on the four

The center panel was created using Spellbinders™ Impressabilities™ templates. I used a color core paper, embossed it in the Wizard™ using the I2-1002 Butterflies template and then sanded the top of it to bring out the color core. I love that it has a rich yet rustic look. Let’s check out the inside.

Here you see the half envelope on the bottom with a little inking on the edges, a sticker embellishment, a tab and a beautiful butterfly stamp. Fun stuff!

Now check out the side image of the pages and envelopes together. I think it is fun to see it from this angle sometimes…how many envelopes do you see?

I can’t count them either. Finally, the back cover.

Important Stuff: S4-233 Labels Nine, S3-146 Butterflies Two, Wizard (Spellbinders); Orange cardstock (Core’dinations); Bind It All coil binding system (Zutter)
Other Stuff: Border cut outs and stickers, orange ribbons, charms, orange paper, purple and green patterned papers, sandpaper

As always, take care and happy creating! Eli
