Button Bliss


Do you have a favorites pile of goodies in your crafty space?  I have a few sets that never leave my immediate sight and Button Boutique from Papertrey is one of them.  The styling of the set always inspires me and it was a natural fit for this week's Make It Monday challenge: glittered buttons.  So easy and striking.  One of those moments where you shake your head and wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?".  (spray adhesive (or glue) + sparkly glitter = sassy)

I always love the color combinations at CR84FN.  This week: Chartreuse, Gray, and Lavender.  Perfect for spring, and I love how the gray can act as an anchor.


I think that I've mentioned using A-Muse inks before, but I just want to shout from the rooftops how much I adore this ink.  Beautiful coverage.  I used Heather (purple), Grass, and Slate.


So happy to have you pop in today.  I have lots of projects and a few fun announcements coming soon so "stay tuned"! :)

ALL supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Button Boutique, Signature Series Dress Form, doily from Market Street Stamps; Cardstock: Rustic Cream & Lavender Moon; Patterned Paper: October Afternoon (gingham) & Lily Bee (floral), Crate Paper (text); Ink: A-Muse Studio - Heather, Grass, and Slate; Tools: Button Card Die collection, Sending You dies, Dress Form die, Ric-Rac border die; Sassy Somethings: Vintage Cream satin ribbon, Lavender Moon button, Prisma glitter

This is lovely, Denise! I don't have button boutique but it is on my radar. I have the signature dress form set, but have never used the dress form (is that crazy?)
I have those same shades of A Muse Studio ink and love them! The only ones I bought that I haven't been really happy with are the reds...

If there was such a saying as "collage-y cool"! This fab card would totally qualify. Such a class act!

I was feeling Heather too. It is such a glorious color. So glad you picked it for me. Hugs.
