Life is Beautiful Layout

Hello crafters. Cindy here from Scrap-Obsessed. Sorry I'm late today. I was trying to finish up today's project and realized I didn't have the right pictures to go with it. It was originally supposed to be a layout for Mother's Day, but I didn't have pictures of my mom that I could use. What I did have sitting on my desk were lots of pictures of our new puppy, Coco Puff.

Sorry the picture is crooked. I was trying to hurry and used my phone instead of my camera.

With this layout today I wanted to show how you can take a paper kit and add few Cricut elements to dress it up a bit. All the paper and stickers are from a paper collection called La Belle Vie at Close to my Heart. It was in last year's catalog and I've had it sitting in my room collecting dust until now. I really need to find more time to use my supplies.

On the left side of the layout I added a butterfly and flourish from Art Philosophy. On the right side I added another butterfly, flourish, a couple corner flourishes and our puppy's name.

Close-up of a flourish and Coco that was added.

Here is a close-up of one of the butterflies.I cut the bottom and top layer with the same paper just to add a little dimension. Then I added a few pearl accents.

All Cricut cuts were made from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
Butterflies were cut at 1.25" from page 55
Long Flourish's were cut at 1.25" from page 59
Corner Flourish's cut at 3" from page 58
Coco cut at 1.25"
