That’s Cristina on the left, I’m in the middle and Erin is on the right.
Cristina asked that our inspiration for our project be based on one of her past creations.
The first thing that came to mind was her sweet little one. In Cristina’s videos, I love seeing those busy little fingers helping her mommy (and I’m sure one day this little cutie will be doing paper crafting videos of her own) hehehe. Oh how I miss having those busy little hands in my own home.
My baby girl turns 16 on the 24th ~ Easter Sunday HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY ~ I LOVE YOU!!
My oldest daughter is 23 and my son recently turned 20.
So here’s my tribute to the creation I love best…..Cristina’s little girl. I hope you like it.
Little girl and sentiment stamp is Pure Innocence for My Favorite Things.
The tree is from the JUST BECAUSE CARDS cartridge and the hills are from COUNTRY LIFE.
I had to put a little kitty on this card because her little one just got a real life new kitty friend of her own. It’s from KATE’S ABC’S. The little butterflies - MARTHA STEWART PUNCH.
Afterthought ~ I went to the LSS (Buffalo Stamps and Stuff) AFTER I took these pictures and I bought a Spica marker in Lemon and added some sparkle to the butterfly wings.

I just love craft paper but add a little paper crimping and you've got a match made in heaven :)
Here I made three (graduated in size) butterflies. Two are out of plain craft paper and one was cut from the DCWV PLAYTIME stack which I LOVE.
To add some color, I used Tim Holtz distressed ink all over one of the plain paper ones, of course I inked the edges on all three. Add some glimmer mist before you crimp them if you like. The ones pictured below are just inked.
I bent the wings up and glued them together in the center with some dimensional silicone to give each layer a little lift.
I've made letters like this also and I really like the look.
