Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a Quietfire Design stamp, stencil and die. Quietfire Design products work SO well together.
I started with a piece of patterned paper from the BoBunny paper line Serenade. This is an older line, but so beautiful with the rich colours and patterns. If you're interested, the Quietfire Designs online store still has the 6x6 Serenade Paper Pad in stock, available here.
The patterned paper was so pretty I didn't add a lot of embellishments. A bit of machine stitching, a bit of fussy cutting of an extra piece of patterned paper to add a few extra poppies to the layout, and a bevy of butterflies using the Butterfly Kaleidscope stencil.
I tried a couple of different mediums with the stencil - Pentart wax paste in bronze and Viva Decor Inka Gold in red and just smeared them on with my index finger - but you could certainly use ink or many other mediums, depending upon the look that you wanted. I just wanted to add a touch of subtle colour and wasn't too worried about getting discrete edges on the butterflies. A bevy of butterflies adds such a nice touch to a scrapbook page.
I added Happy for a title (from the Happy Anniversary die set, but you can of course use the words separately). We were a very happy group hiking in the Black Forest of Germany. I then stamped the friendship quote onto another bit of patterned paper to finish the page. Enjoy your friends and make sure you get pictures of them, even if it's a silly selfie. Happy Scrapbooking!
