So, in this crazy pandemic, I decided to teach myself to crochet.  No, I'm still not good at it,, know, it's coming along!  I'm currently working on a baby blanket. I usually find a pattern, screenshot it and then forget the details.  I decided to make myself a little pattern/resource book.  I crafted all of these little dividers with this month's release (and then some!)
And, bound them all together with my bind it all.  Stamp sets featured:  Grunge Elements 3, Skinny Caps Alpha, Messy Stamped Alpha, Lollipop Alpha, Like a Sunflower, Butterfly Background (the stamp of the month) and the Grunge Dots Stencil
I'm obsessed with Grunge Elements 3

How cute are those little butterflies?
The Grunge Dots Stencil is perfect for those corners!

Like I said, obsessed with Grunge Elements 3! It's perfect for playing around with your gel press!
I also added the Script Stencil to the background.  It became the perfect backdrop for some butterflies from Made New.  It's hard to see in my picture, but each butterfly is inset by using the coordinating dies and then popping up the gel press panel.  The sentiments on the front and inside are both from Begin Again.
This card is headed to a very special friend of mine!  Another friend of mine is Esther Asbury.  You are headed to her blog next and I promise you will be inspired!!  Thanks for joining us!  Remember to comment for your chance to win!  TTFN, Jane
