Gottacraft Design Team

A good friend of mine, Sandra,  who I met through my local crop has a lovely shop Gottacraft.  You can also see the shop blog here. She recently asked me if I would do some work for her design team. I was delighted and honoured to be asked. Thank you Sandra. She gave me some lovely papers from the MME On the Brightside collecton to work with. I love the orange/aqua combination which is just perfect for little boys. I have completed two layouts and a card with the lovely products. You might notice a bit of a butterfly theme....

Both layouts use photos that were taken when Mum and I enjoyed a lovely day out at Wisley with Matthew. They had a butterfly display in part of the greenhouse, so we were able to do that, enjoy a walk, have a nice lunch and let Matthew play in the little soft play there. A lovely day out!

The first layout uses all the papers that Sandra gave me. I used the grey woodgrain one as the background as I thought it matched well with the bench Matthew is sitting on. As well as the papers coming from the collection I also used some tags and journalling spots and some of the paper buttons. I add a couple of other bits such as the thickers, an Amy tangerine camera and some little Authentique words, like these . I also added a butterfly from my studio calico kit and these brads.

My second layout was based on a sketch I found here. Thanks Pinterest! This time I added some Jenni Bowlin butterflies and some of the Viva decor paper pens to make the little butterfly trails.

Lastly a made a couple of cards for Mother's day. Again just added a butterfly, the paper pen butterfly trails and some thickers. Very simple. Based on this card here.

Ive really enjoyed using the papers. Very versatile. Thanks Sandra.
