Today we have a gorgeous, detail packed layout from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira. Here is a little bit about it from Melissa herself:
I had a left over piece of pleated fabric from a recent sewing project that I wanted to use for a layout. The frayed fibers were trimmed from the fabric and Helmar Fray Stoppa was applied to the raw edges. After five minutes, the fabric was completely dry and ready to adhere to the layout. I used Scrap Dots Liquid adhesive to squeeze several gooey dabs of adhesive along the back side of the pleated fabric and adhered it to the corner of the layout. This adhesive is my new best friend! I love using fabric and fibers on my paper crafting projects, and Scrap Dots is strong and thick enough to stay where it is put and dries clear and quick. I also used Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere the title banner pieces to the fabric. The glue is gooey and flexible when applied, so I had plenty of “wiggle room” to straighten the banner pieces that landed on the layout a little askew.

1/4″ Helmar Zap Dots were used to pop up the butterfly embellishments as well as the photo.
Large Butterfly Die Cut is Lifestyle Crafts punched from Bella Blvd patterned paper.
Embossed dots on butterflies above photo are made using a Darice embossing folder
Core’dinations papers used are Core Essentials and BasicGrey Core Impressions (pink)

  30. While there are numerous patients in california, colorado along with other states who prefer clones,
    you should realize that those clones or “cuts” because they are called will be in everyones garden already.

    ‘ advised employees to appear out for opportunities
    in their place of employment where they could steal good ideas and profit for themselves.
    Some conspiracy theorists have claimed that pro-legalization groups happen to be subversively planting the
    patches so that you can promote their agenda, but no proof exists and thus
    far no group has claimed responsibility.
