Take flight home decor made using the Paper Trimmings Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!

TGIF! I do not have a clear plan for the weekend, I am just so darn glad it is almost here!

Today's project is made using the Circle Exclusive, Paper Trimmings. Now, if you are not in the Cricut Circle don't fret, my sweets, because there are butterflies on so many cartridges. One of my favorites is on the Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes cartridge. I really love butterflies!

I used Echo Park paper. The butterfly was cut out at 5".
I added black pearls to the body of the butterfly to give it a segmented look. They are sold by CTMH and are pretty cheap (108 for under $3). I also glittered the wings using Stardust Glitz gel.
Have a super fantastic weekend! I will see you all back here on Monday!

November Specials:

November stamp of the month:


Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set).
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps.

I never thought of putting the vellum in behind the butterfly openings. What a pretty effect. The little black pearls really add dimension.
Thank you for sharing such a pretty craft. :)
