Butterfly Stamp Wreath | Lorilei MurphyMay 02, 2019
Happy May! Lorilei here today sharing a layout I made with the gorgeous Megan kit! May is one of my favorite months, and to me, my layout feels like a celebration of spring, Mother's Day and all things fresh and new!
As you might know, the stamp set is always the first thing in the kit that makes me squeal! Jeana has the mad skill of just knowing what works and designs the most useful and pretty stamp sets! The butterflies on the Megan stamp set are gorgeous, and I had to use them!
I began by stamping and fussy cutting butterflies until I filled up a little bowl. I believe I ended up with 16 of each butterfly, so I had plenty to work with. I also fussy cut pretty flowers from the Megan floral paper to scatter around the butterflies. I knew I wanted some type of wreath for the butterflies, but I didn't want the extra layer from a cut file or paint. I found some big (10.5") doilies in my stash and decided to use one as a base. It worked out great and added a subtle layer and gave me the circle I needed for the wreath.
My next step was to add all the larger butterflies first so that I would have consistent spacing. I used foam dot adhesive for all the butterflies and flowers for dimension. I added the smaller size butterflies next and then began tucking in the little fussy cut flowers here and there. At this stage, I added in my photos before the smaller details. I chose one 3 x 3" photo and a 2.2 x 2.2" and added them to the wreath. The two labels from the Megan die cut pack added extra "weight" to the photos so that they could stand out a bit more.
To finish the layout, I stamped the tiny butterflies from the Megan stamp set around the wreath. I added the super sweet, heart puffy stickers to the little clusters of the stamped butterflies. It always amazes me, how tiny details add so much! I chose the beautiful die cut for my title and added two of the butterfly Megan vellum die cuts to two of the stamped butterflies (also on a foam dot). The vellum butterflies added the perfect pop of color!
If you love butterflies, flowers and pretty colors the Megan kit is for you!! I adore the kit, and I am excited to use the bows, tiny tags, the gorgeous rainbow paper...all the things I guess!! Check out Megan in the shop and grab yours today! Thanks so much for having a look at my layout!
