Enza Gudor —You Are Here—

The layout I am sharing today is meant to celebrate one of those friendships I mentioned above. I have been crafting for a long time, but only started sharing on social media a couple of years ago. I can say I was not expecting all the love and support I received from this community, and surely I never believed I could find thoughtful and caring friends who would make me feel so special. I received the gorgeous birthday card you see on the page from my dear friend Zsoka, who is truly an inspiration, not only for her outstanding crafting abilities, but also for her generosity and big heart.

I started this layout with a butterfly cut file from the Silhouette store. I modified it a little to adapt it to what I had in mind. I cut it several times from patterned paper and vellum, as I wanted to create more dimensional butterflies. I love the look of the butterflies flying off the page.

I secured the cut files with a little bit of stitching, and used foam dots to raise the bottom layer.

All the patterned papers you see here are included in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. The sentiments come from the Halftone Circles and Extra Special stamp sets. I heat-embossed them with Altenew Translucent Pearl embossing powder.

I finished the layout off with wood veneers, enamel dots, and paint splatters in matching colors.

Thank you for visiting. Your next stop is Nina-Marie Trapani. Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win one of the many amazing prizes.
