Cosmo Cricket Evangeline Layout

Hi everyone! It's Kate here today, and I'm happy to now be back as an official member of the LCOM team!

This month, I'm working with Cosmo Cricket. I created this layout with the beautiful Evangeline line. I hope that you will check it out, it really is a beautiful line.


I fussy cut the flowers and the butterflies out of a single piece of paper, and layered them on top of one another with 3D foam squares. I love machine sewing on my layouts. Here, I did some machine stitching around the edges of the border strip and larger piece of paper on the left hand side of the page.

I used one of my favourite stamps from Stampin' Up as a background on the layout. I simply heat embossed the image with white embossing powder. To add volume to the butterflies, I applied Helmar Liquid Scrapdots under them. I find this works better than 3D foam on elements that you want to create a more natural looking 'pop'. I added a bit of splatter of Perfect Pearls Mist on the background.
