On the Periphery

When I break into a Basic Grey pack, it seems like I can't put it down! I completed these three 2-page layouts and have enough paper left for one or two more. This first layout is the most intricate one I have done to date and it certainly took me the longest! Some interesting elements include swarovski crystals strung on picture hanging wire and I used (for the first time) real sewing, perfect pearls, and brads (I know, long time coming).

In this layout I hand cut the butterfly and used stickles for his body and made these paper flowers and leaves by hand as well.

Here I used the Heidi Swapp masks that Rachel got me for Christmas.

That's it for now!


  1. Wow! Great pages! You are getting more "professional" all the time!

  2. so beautiful! It shows that you put a lot of time in the first layout, so its worth it!
