“Pinch Proof” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill, Bo Bunny; patterned paper: Bo Bunny, Studio Calico, We R Memory Keepers, Bella, Basic Grey, Kaiser Craft, Fancy Pants; letter stickers: Doodlebug Designs; sticker: Little Yellow Bicycle; ink: Clearsnap; embroidery floss: DMC; other: date stamp, flowers, gems, pen

Variation #1 - I created a layout instead of a card and used photos in place of the square. I also added a title and journaling strips.

Variation #2 - I only used nine strips and curled up the bottoms.

(Most of these papers did not have the same pattern on the reverse side, so I adhered a scrap of the front of the strip to the back so that when it was curled up, the pattern would be the same.)

Variation #3 - I used flowers that looked like four leaf clovers instead of butterflies and eliminated the one in the upper left.

Variation #4 - Instead of stitching on the strips, I stitched around the die cut paper.

"Catching Butterfly Kisses" by Virginia Nebel
Supply list - Patterned paper: WR Memory Keepers; Embellishments: The Twinery; Kaiser Kraft jewels; Die cutting: Silhouette Cameo, Sizzix, Fiskars

The inspiration for my card were the butterflies. I have sweet memories of exchanging 'butterfly kisses' with my daughter. I would ask her 'did you catch my butterfly kiss?'

Variation #1 -Instead of cutting strips for the card background I used a striped pattern paper.

Variation #2 - For the message element, the sketch shows 11 strips on the background, so I looped baker's twine 11 times around each of the small squares to add some texture. I tucked the butterflies and kisses (x's) through the twine to play on the 'catching' theme.

Lynette, I love the pretty colors you used and the little blings. You always have such pretty things on your layouts.

Andrea, love love the rainbow effect and the curled paper is so fun. Cute photos.

Virginia, how cool that you wrapped the twine 11 times, they look awesome. Love all the color and designs you used.
