Simple Strategies with Gina - Guessing Game #3

Hello all, today I'm sharing a simple layout with you, using just the "Fireflies" main kit. I've chosen a right aligned design with vertical 12" strips of pattern paper, embellishing between the strips and leaving plenty of white space on the page as well..


These are the items I've used (I did swap the olive star die-cut for a pale blue one).  The gorgeous handmade vintage scallop has been trimmed slightly at each end and at the base. The typed ledger stickers were also trimmed then placed on a butterfly and journal die-cuts (note there is an extra one tucked under the photo in the finished layout)


After sticking down the 2 vertical strips (approximately 2.5" and 3" wide), I've added a couple more papers behind the photo, and the trimmed scallop piece


I folded the butterfly wings back gently then placed a foam circle sticker (available in the store) under each one.. 


To finish, I added a couple of flower die-cuts, machine stitching around the photo and through the star, then wound some messy thread around the button and finally a faint grey paint splatter..and of course my usual barcode!


Thanks for stopping by.. and remember to leave a comment on this post with your guesses as to what's in the kit, for your chance to win a gift card!



  1. Butterflies seem to be staring [& maybe stars!!!] in the kits, I reckon - which would fit nicely with the Spring idea that's happening in some lucky peeps part of the world!!!! I'm not up with brand no idea what papers these are - but they are LOVELY!!! Gorgeous page, Gina:)

  2. Beautiful paper! I see vellum phrase stickers?!
