My Favorite Girls:



I used one of the envelopes to kind of mat/ground the photos, and  tucked some of the embellishments inside of it. Would be great for hidden journaling, too.

Best Friends:

 I used an exacto knife to trace around the butterfly on the patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, and popped up the wings. Then I added some stickles to make it stand out a little more.

Happy Birthday:
This is probably my favorite project, I just love that butterfly. I used a half inch circle punch for my border along the bottom of the card. I added the rhinestones, which were not in the kit.

Wish:
This was one of the fastest/easiest of my projects. You don't need to add much when you have such an awesome focal point :) Again, I added the pearls, which were not in the kit.

Happy Hellos:
I popped up the little round thread sticker/embellishment so I could wrap some actual thread around it and add the heart tag - that I punched right out of the bottom of the card.

Just because I care:
This is another card that came together quickly/easily. It was also my last project...so I might have just been running out of steam :)

Flower Pin:
I just hot glued some leaves (which were not in the kit) to the back of this awesome flower, and then hot glued a round chipboard element to the back to make it a bit more sturdy/durable. Finally, I hot glued the pin that came with the kit to the chipboard. A very quick/cute accessory :) 

Ok, that's all of my projects.......
