A (LITERAL!) Rainbow of Buttons

Got buttons?  Need more?  Paper Anthology’s got you covered! This bright and beautiful 6×6 canvas board project is from a Collins Show class by (who else?) Buttons Galore and features their Shimmerz and Sprinklets as well as LOTS of Buttons and Sequins from their excellent Lilac Lane division! This sort of project could also use Brads, Enamel Dots and Mini Prills; it’s a great way to use up the last few embellishments in any pack; OR… a great excuse to buy more! Fill ANY shape, or cover a box lid or journal; use the whole rainbow, or focus on one favorite color. Don’t forget to grab a great clear-drying adhesive like iCraft Ultra Bond, 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue or Nuvo Deluxe.

August CCC!

Still 11 days left before this month’s Christmas Card Club and I already have the card designed!    This month I channeled all my favorite things – wood, plaid, gingham and a rustic cabin feel.  I used Stampers Anonymous “Festive Overlays” set  (another favorite thing) for the main image and sentiment. (die cut with Taylored Expressions awesome stitched and scallop sets).   The plaid is a Studio 490 background stamp and the woodgrain is a Sizzix 3D embossing folder.  My all time favorite May Arts ribbon, some die cuts from Penny Blackj and Elizabeth Crafts, along with a sprinkling of star sequins from Buttons Galore finish it off (not to mention a bunch of distress ink)!

 

Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
