How about another new layout share?
Technically it's not really new, per se, just new to my blog. ;)
This layout was featured in April's Scrapbook Trends "Green" Article:
This Earth Love Collection from Cosmo Cricket that I used for the majority of my layout is "green" since the patterned paper was printed on recycled materials. How cool is that? Not only are the papers cute but earth friendly too!
The butterfly accents were all created using canvas and chipboard clothing tags that I had collected over the last few years from clothing items I had purchased. It seems that the tags on so many items is almost as cool as the clothing itself and instead of throwing them away I like to throw them in my tag box and use them for things like this. Don't they make super cute one-of-a-kind embellishments?
This layout features tons of old product.
I love that.
It's such a good feeling to come across products that I have loved forever and be able to find a use for them. The brads, stick pins and buttons are are staples in my paper crafting.
The photomat and title are die cut designs available in the Silhouette Store. Ironically, these were both designed by the super talented Kerri Bradford.
See? I always gravitate towards her designs. Scroll down for a link to her newest download kit for sale on her blog. It is amazing. Not too be missed, frirends. I will be using it this week. That is a promise.

It sort of rocks my world.
Lots of text.

And it's die cuts I will actually use. Over and over.

When I got my layout back from Scrapbook Trends I got an extra copy of the April 2010 issue and I would like to give it away. Along with the Flutterby Friend Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and the Text Style Library Ledger 8x8 Paper Pad by Papertrey Ink. :)
