Butterfly Parcel Kit

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. I spent Saturday night home alone......just me, some snacks, a good pay per view movie (Couple's Retreat) and my stamps. I kept my supplies pretty simple........Papertrey's Butterfly Dreams, Fillable Frames #1 and the matching dies. I did add in some border sets and punches too. Colors were Dark Chocolate and the Vintage Ink Duo cubes. Butterflies were definitely the theme. Once my movie started, I stamped.....and stamped some more.......I couldn't quit stamping. So...I watched the movie twice and kept on stamping.
And then I got out the new PTI dies. You can cut through at least 4 sheets of old text book pages with one cute. Like butter.
Then I decided to make up a few kits with my butterfly doodads. I love the one that uses images from the Take Note set...the pointy finger with the resting butterfly. And the square one with the loopy square border from Borders and Corners: Squares....so botanical looking.
I paired all the goodies up with some die cut scallop borders, a few Vintage Buttons, some ribbon and a few other goodies. All this is in the Butterfly Parcel kit that will be up in my shop later this morning.
Wanna see my favorite part about the kit? It's not the kit contents at all, it's the packaging. I had all these leftover scraps from my die cut images......
I used the negative cut butterfly images as tags for the Butterfly Parcel kits. Signed my name and attached to the glassine bags with some old string I got at a garage sale. The tags are tied on with PTI's new silk ribbon. Not trimmed neatly or anything. Recycle and reuse.....it's a great thing.
The Butterfly Parcel kits are very limited in quantity and I won't have more anytime soon. Get 'em while they last, friends. :) Have a great day everyone!!

Absolutely darling. You made such great use of your time. I marvel at how well you can "mass" produce so many charming details for embellishments. So often, I make one or two...I need to rethink and do what you do. Terrific kits!

So, all I have to do is use the pages from an old book huh? Great idea. I'd love to find some old sheet music. I think I'll make a trip to the thrift store this week. Thanks for the inspriation. As usual, your cards are darling.

Adorable...I was so inspired by this kit. Too slow to order one so I got out similiar stamps, brown and tan ink and stamped away. I made a ton of mini notecards. I never would have thought of using the brown ink with the butterlies and the "take note" stamps, you're right, very botanical and vintage-y, which I love! Thanks so much for sharing your ieas with us!!!
