My Secret Word is;
SOMETHING

 Here is the Blog Hop Rotation 


What fun- my first Gecko Galz Blog Hop :-) Here are my samples made using your free sheet. Scroll down to download the sheet.



For this cute little gift box, I've used all Stampin' Up! Products I just love their gift box die- it's so easy to create gorgeous gifts. To make it extra pretty I've also added some glitter to the butterfly wings. The friend stamp is called Mixed Medley also from Stampin' Up!   I think this butterfly collage is just beautiful and so versatile.



I created the little bird frame by using Stampin' Up!  Designer Frames embossing Folder, these little folders are perfect for framing little images. I added some shimmer paint to the frame. And added some Kaisercraft Patterned paper and some ribbon and lace from my stash.


For this pretty halloween card, I printed an image from the Gecko Galz Digi stamp set Hocus Pocus. I coloured it orange with Stampin' Up! ink and Dylusions ink spray. I then added lace and bling from my stash.


I've used Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper for this card, and then run it through the Big Shot and embossed it using a Tim Holtz Folder. It's hard to see in the photo, but I covered the whole butterfly image with glitter by using Heat and Stick Powder and then Covering it with glitter. It's a really cool effect!



For this ATC I started with a piece of chipboard, I then glued the butterfly image on and then added glitter, pearls and butterflies from my stash. To give a bit more depth I then glazed the whole card with Beeswax.


Please enjoy this free Gecko Galz Collage sheet “Butterflies & Birds”
