Buttons!





When it comes to trends in crafts and stamping, I usually don't jump on the bandwagon right away. It takes me some time. I have to think about it. Really decide if I like it, or if I'm just falling for it because it's trendy. Such is the case with buttons. But I'm slowly coming around with the help of the new Everyday Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink:


Look at the buttons! I especially love the button with the black "stitching" around it. I adhered my buttons using glue dots. I find that it's easier and faster than stitching them on, although I may try that next. I have to admit, it's a lot of fun to dig around in my button stash and find just the right ones. I can't wait to try out another button card now!

Hey, don't forget to jump over to Purple Onion Designs and do a little shopping while everything is still 25% off! You only have until July 31 to save, so don't wait! If you have any questions about how to use their stamps, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to walk you through it. Or you can read more here.

This card is adorable! I really like how the bitty dot paper adds a little bit of interest to the background. I'm also slow to jump on the button bandwagon, but that stamp set may just make me take the leap!
