Hi everyone! We are almost wrapping up our teasers for this upcoming release and we are so excited that you are following along with us as we show you some of the new and exciting products MFT has to offer!
Let's jump right in!
Today I want to share a project that I'm certain you will find unique from what you typically see... hehe!! This is a butterfly hanging sign! Those who know me and follow my blog, YouTube or Facebook page, know that I am a butterfly enthusiast... I just LOVE anything butterflies! To me, it's not just the beauty of the butterfly, but the symbolism behind the life of a butterfly that I love. I won't go into all the deets on that, but just know, I love butterflies. hehe!! So I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this project... and it came to me! I make YouTube videos regularly (my channel is HERE) and when the kids or the hubby are home, they don't believe in knocking before walking into a room with a closed door, so they typically storm in with loud voices -- yes, right when I'm making a video -- it never fails. LOL!!! So I decided to make a sign I can hang outside on my door so they know when I'm filming a video. :-)
The base of my sign is medium weight chipboard cut out using a large butterfly AccuCut die (7x9 inches) and I layered on Once Upon a Springtime DP by Graphic 45, then stitched around the edges with my sewing machine (yes, I'm a sewing person now -- whoot whoot!!!) I stamped the big butterflies on DP using the new Inspired by Butterflies stamp set, then paper pieced parts of it using different DP from the G45 collection. I rubbed some Ranger Rock Candy Stickles over top the butterflies with my finger and just love how they came out! More details on this project can be found on my video HERE.
