Butterflies + Gold

Hi all, I'm back with my second blog post for The Robin's Nest!

For this project I laid out all of my Robin's Nest supplies on my desk and decided to choose my FAVOURITE thing to work with this week. The Glitter Gold on Creme Cardstock won out! It's no secret that I have a gold glitter obsession, so it's really not surprising. ;) This cardstock is truly beautiful...it's a nice heavy weight to work with and the glitter is so vibrant. Check out the rest of the gorgeous colour options here.

My layout:

I used a picture of my sweet cousin as my focal point. So adorable!

I first sprayed my background cardstock with white mist to add texture. It's kind of hard to see in the pictures!

To create the cascade of butterflies I simply punched out a whole bunch of them from the glitter swirl cardstock, arranged them, the glued each one down with quick drying liquid adhesive. (I can't wait to do this with other shapes too! Circles, diamonds, stars, etc.) The weight of the glitter paper makes it so easy to add dimension by folding and layering! Once my glue dried I added In Love in Italy Mini Dew Drops throughout the butterfly shapes.


I layered white cardstock, vintage sheet music, and the edge of a doily behind my photo.

Make sure to go browse through the online store and check out the other gorgeous supplies available!
What's your absolute favourite RN product??

Thanks for checking out my work :)
