Paper Buttons

This lovely card was created by my friend, Kay! I so love the paper buttons! I will have to put the Sweet Buttons Embosslit Die on my wish list. I hadn’t really been all that interested because I am not into sewing – at all!!!! However, who says I have to be interested in sewing to have such cute buttons to add to my cards? Plus…I can coordinate them with all my endless paper scraps that I keep hoarding! lol!

Summer Fabric Fun

One of my favorite things about summer is the little vacation that I take from having classes. I miss my girls…but it gives me an opportunity to play with my stamping stuff in ways that I don’t seem to find the time for when I am planning classes! A while back Stampin’ Up! introduced fabrics into their line of product. I loved the Springtime Vintage Background Paper and this fabric coordinated with it…so it was my natural choice to choose this fabric! I also purchased the Big Shot Fabric Adhesive Roll when I purchased the fabric knowing that I am not much of a sewer! I envisioned buying inexpensive tops and bottoms and embellishing them to dress them up…and in some cases embellishing them to match!  This inexpensive ($3) top from Walmart looks absolutely fabulous adorned with these fabric flowers cut from the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die and coordinating Designer Buttons. This was very quick and easy to do! I am going to have to practice making 3-D flowers to attach next! I think it would be way cool to dress up some inexpensive tops and then add Velcro to some denim bottoms and be able to interchange coordinating 3-D flowers to match the tops! You could also make coordinating items for your hair, or even jewelry! What fun!!!
