    Maggie Holmes | Sunshine On My Mind Layout | Sunny Days

    When I think of Spring, the first things that come to mind are flowers and butterflies! Since I already used a whole lot of flowers on my first layout with the Sunny Days collection, I decided on butterflies for this page.

    I just recently got this Hero Arts Nesting Butterflies die set and it came in very handy to create some layered butterflies. The die set included butterflies in six different sizes and I used all but the largest one on this layout.

    Creating Layered Butterflies

    For the butterflies I used a few different papers from the Sunny Days collection (Explorer, Parasol, Florentine, Sunkissed, Wander, Coral and Seaside) and also layered in some vellum ones to tone down some of the colors and patterns.

    When I was done with die cutting all the butterflies and was happy with the layering, I ran them through my sewing machine and sitched them together with gold thread. With butterflies I always like to fold up their wings to create some more dimension and depth, so stitching them together makes this very easy! Besides, I think it makes them look a lot more “natural” (as far as that’s possible with paper butterflies, haha).

    Background & Embellishing

    For my background I tried a few different papers, as well as white cardstock but none seemed to work. I finally decided on this very light pink paper that was subtle enough but still added some color. To make the butterflies stand out a little more, I added a few strokes of white gesso.

    For the final touches, I added just a few small embellishments, like the golden puffy heart stickers or the rhinestone flowers, in between. I also dug into my older Maggie Holmes items and found that the Carousel cardstock and clear stickers worked perfectly with my color scheme!

    The title “Sunshine on my mind” came from the Carousel cardstock stickers, as well as the banner underneath. This really worked out perfectly and I was so happy to be able to combine some older MH products with the new Sunny Days products!

    I am really happy with how this page turned out! It definitely puts me in a very Spring-y mood! 🙂 I hope it does the same for you! Now make sure to hop on over to the IG post, to enter the giveaway.

    Thanks a lot for stopping by! Have a great day!
