Social [Media] Butterflies Blog Hop

Happy Sunday,
I am popping in today to take part in a fun blog hop today with a fun bunch of girls from Social [Media] Butterflies.  I know Shay, the creator of this wonderful group, from our local scrapbook store and she invited me to join the group this month.  It really is a fun time.  The purpose of this group is really to spread inspiration.

This months theme was to pick something that inspired us from all the sneak peeks from CHA Summer and make a project that was inspired for the sneak peek.  This was sooo easy for me because there were so many wonderful   new products to choose from.  I had 2 really fun embellishments that I fell in love with and they were both from Studio Calico.

The first one are the new poloraid film die cuts.
Die Cut Polaroid Frames - Studio Calico
Aren' t these just awesome?  I just love them!!  I love the words or images in them.

The second are the new wood veneer word bubbles.
SC Wood Veneer- Speech Bubbles
Oh I just love these.

So for my layout I decided to make my own versions of these new products using my Silhouette and I have to say I love how they turned out!

I am NOT very techy but it really was easy to create these poloraid film die cuts.  I was very pleased with my self.  To add to them I colored the love and hear with some copic markers to match the paper.  I also had some paper that had a wood grain feel to it and I added some words to my speech bubble images.  Very easy peasy!    I did add some real wood veneer shapes just for fun as well.

paper- authentique
stickers - authentique
alphabet- lily bee
wood veneer- studio calico
stamp- hero arts
ink- hero arts, tim holtz distress inks
mist- mister huey
flair- a flair for buttons
markers- copic
tools- sewing machine, Silhouette

Now we would love for you to hop along with us here.  You can even win some prizes!  Shay has 2 HUGE goodie bags from CHA and she is going to pick any TWO people who hop along with us.  There are many ways to enter:
