Close to My Heart Flip Stand Album Take Two!

Alright, I promised you more Flip Stand Album pages, and I finally have another one to share!  Yay!
I am linking up with the Muse Challenge this week as I incorporated elements including the butterfly, script paper, and sentiment flag from this lovely card by Vickie Dutcher.


 Here is the 6 x 5.5 inch page that I created using the Ivy Lane Paper Packet and Smoothie CS.


How much do you love this gorgeous butterfly!  I stamped it in a special way using the image from the new Dreamer My Acrylix from Close to My Heart.  It is the first thing I thought of when I saw the Muse butterfly.  I stamped the butterfly on scratch paper first and trimmed it out.  Then I placed that image on the page and stamped the image again right over the cut out in Smoothie Exclusive Ink.  It left an amazing outline of the butterfly on the background!  I stamped another one to cut out and adhere on top with the wings folded up slightly.  I LOVE how this looks!  Just like on the Muse card, I added three Purple Glitter Gems to the body of the butterfly for some bling.

That adorable BFF badge in this cluster is found in the Lollydoodle Assortment.  I used the brand new Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon as little leaves for my flowers like I did a while ago with a ribbon on THIS TAG for Heart 2 Heart Challenges last year.


The rest of the stamped images on my page are from the Lollydoodle Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit that I gave you a peek of over the weekend HERE.  I covered a piece of White Daisy CS with this Smoothie Striped Washi Tape to make a little flag with the sentiment.  I did this trick with the centers of the flowers as well.


I adore the little journal box sentiment in the picture below.  I used a simple, but oh so effective technique to create it in two colors.  First I put the image on my block upside down (with the side you are supposed to stamp with stuck to the block) and inked it up in Sky Exclusive Ink.  Then I flipped the stamp over to the real image and inked it up in Black to stamp directly over that image!  You can use this trick for many different symmetrical stamps, and Close to My Heart makes ONLY clear Acrylic stamps that work like this!

Behind the journaling is a peek of script patterned paper in the Ivy Lane Paper Packet trimmed at the bottom with some of the greatest product ever invented--Purple Shimmer Trim!!!  This self-adhesive glitter tape has an endless number of non-messy uses!  :)


I love how this page just came together!  This is a really nice size to work with for a change.  Bigger than a card, but smaller than the standard 12 x 12 layout.  You should really give it a try!  You can pick up the Designed Decor Flip Stand Album on my website HERE!
