Personalized Photo Card Tutorial!


Hello Blogosphere & Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

I don’t know about you, but what I always hope for on Mother’s Day is a day off & something handmade from the kiddos! This card is the perfect gift for any Mama out there: Grandmas, Aunties, Great-Grandmas. WHY? Because it incorporates ARTwork from the kiddos & a PHOTO! All moms like photos of their littles :)

New Video Tutorial!

May2014TiffWeek2aHello Blogosphere!

During National Scrapbook Day, I was totally inspired by the Basic Grey Highline posts! The colors & style is so very New Orleans! SOOOO, I made a layout accompanied with a video on how to create your own Brush Script Titles! Hope you’ll check it out on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog!

If you want to get access to my videos right when they upload, feel free to subscribe to my youtube channel!

Happy Crafting,
