A Scraphappy Southernbelle

Monday, Monday

Hey everyone! Happy Monday!!! It's the start of another new week and I'm hopin' Monday will bring some mojo along with it. I hate to say it, but my scrappy mojo was slacking this past weekend. I don't know if I was tired or what, but I did not scrap hardly any!!! I stayed busy on Friday night, had a veg day with the hubby on Saturday, and only finished one card on Sunday! I usually work more during the weekend than on the week, but this past weekend...no way! I was just in a blah mood. I felt creative and had ideas, but just did not have the desire to get up and do it. What's up with that? I'm hoping my weekend of rest has rejuvenated me and I can get some major stuff done this week.

Of course, when I did set down to scrap, I had to pull out the Helmar adhesives. I'm still playing around with this fabulous brand of adhesives. I sat down Sunday to work on my Cuttlebug Spot project for the upcoming week. This week we are doing a 'Cuttlebug Spot' themed project. By that I mean, we are using the colors seen on the blog (pink, green, white, black). We also were asked to use a stamped image on our project. For my card, I used the Helmar 'V2' Vellum Spray adhesive, the black 3d Zap Dots, and the Adhesive Runner.

Here is my Cuttlebug Spot themed card. I used the Cuttlebug Butterfly die to cut out the butterflies. I embossed them with the D'Vine Swirl embossing folder. The stamped image is from Stampin' Up. I also brought in some pink satin ribbon and rhinestones. These papers are from my scrap bin. I have been trying to dig into my scrap bin a lot here lately. It is getting so full and I need to use it or lose it! :) These papers are from Scenic Route, Jenni Bowlin, and Fancy Pants.

I added bling to the center of the butterflies and bent up the wings for dimension.

I adhered this clear 'KI Memories' paper using the 'V2' Vellum Adhesive from Helmar. I love it for this clear paper. It sticks on wonderfully and no sign of adhesive! Love it!

I popped up the butterflies with the black Zap Dots from Helmar.
