Butterfly freebie ideas used in my journal

Hello friends, thanks for joining me here today. Can you believe it, two new posts, in one week... Yes it looks as if I may start using blogger a bit more again. In my previous post I offered you a freebie and today I want to show you a few options of how you can use it. I think the photos pretty much speak for themselves, but if you have any questions, I am always happy to answer.
all pages in this journal are made with coffee dyed paper.
Here you can see the butterfly a bit more clearly, I really used them mostly as embellishments. Stencils are by Tim Holtz

Here I used a smaller one to decorate a pocket

I often like to add extra little notebooks to my journals, to give more space for more journaling, quotes or like here a space to add things you are grateful for, or as you can see in one of the photos above to make notes.

This journal is far from finished, so stay tuned for further ideas and on the left of the photo above, you can see some little tags from a freebie that will be coming your way soon.

Most of the other pages, pockets etc are made with papers from collections that are available in my Etsy Shop

Well, thats it for now and like always, happy crafting and creating, and thanks for dropping by.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
