Great ideas ladies! Especially since I just punched a bunch of butterflies out last night. I'm going to be adding them to the flowers I have been making lately. I hate to admit it, but I bought the butterfly punch from "that lady,MS". Works great and it doesn't hurt my hand very much. I have all the stamps too so I'll be doing those as well. Just start with what you have and then you will soon find out what you like and don't like.
I have bought most of the bflies I use at HL. I also cut them out of other pps. Adding stickles and gliter adds a nice touch. If you have a fetish like out family for them, your best bet is to do what you are doing w/the die cuts. I use my CE alot for them but I buy most from craft dept everywhere. My nieces lots there dad 2 yrs ago and thier song from him to them was Butterfly Kisses so I have to buy any I see.
Butterflies are everywhere these days! The two products below I have used on some LOs. The BG Ambrosia paper pack has 2 sheets in it with all butteflies on it. The colors are really eye-catching.
I also agree with Here Kitty, there are a ton of .gsd files all over for the Silhoutte or Wishblade machines. I have found several I like.
I just did a layout using a big sparkly butterfly I found at Michaels in the Dollar section. It had a clip on the back, that I removed, trimmed the foam body a little, and attached it matching brads and lots of Glue Dots .
Although there are lots of butterfly embellishments for scrapbooking, think outside the scrapbook section...
Check the sewing section for appliques.
I just bought a package of feather butterflies from the Dollar Tree that were with the fake flowers & crafts.
