Hello CVS friends well before I move onto the new gorgeous Storyteller collection which arrived in my mail box today here is a layout using an older collection (but still a fav of mine) Sunkissed . I had many of the wood epoxy buttons left that I decided to make them a focus of my layout.

I decided to create a non summer themed layout using the blue and pink palette and of course wood epoxy buttons! This beautiful Butterfly cut file is from the Silhouette Design Store, I just love the way there is tiny butterflies coming from the wing. I chose the deep blue and pink heart papers to create my butterfly, I used foam tape on the tiny butterflies to add dimension. I added the gorgeous dark blue heart button on my butterfly.

I added some die cut clouds to create the illusion of a sky above the butterfly. This is where I got to add two of the wood epoxy buttons, cute tiny rainbows! To add balance I added a puffy cloud sticker and to finish off I tucked two of the puffy sticker flowers behind the die cut clouds.

I then added my 3×3 inch photo (you could obviously add a larger one) matting it on some paper scraps in a way you could see each pattern peeping through. My photo is adhered with foam tape to add height. I added one of the large wood epoxy buttons to the left of my photo slightly over the photo mat, another rainbow but this time multi coloured.

I created a floral bunch using the floral die cut ephemera, layering and using foam tape and finished of with a phrase sentiment from the accessory sticker sheet.

I used the paint brush strokes from the clear sticker sheet to add a contrast against the white, which is also why I added a border using a light blue, this avoids the white background paper being too overwhelming. Over the top I added my title Sunny Days which again is a cut file from the Silhouette Design store. I added another wood epoxy button, I think this one with the word ‘fun’ just a perfect little extra to my title.

In total I managed to use five wood epoxy buttons on this layout! I probably wouldn’t use that many normally because I always hoard embellishments like this!!!! So if you have any Sunkissed left here is an idea to create a non summer layout.

Thank you as always for stopping by and I can’t wait to share my first layout using Storyteller!
