Backyard Blooms Cards with Buttons Galore & More~

Hi there!!
Sharing my last project using the Backyard Blooms 
Novelty buttons by Buttons Galore & More. I did a 
couple of mixed media cards and added buttons
and Jelly Beans as embellishments. Really love the
look and added dimension it gives the card front.


These were super fun to create and the background mix worked perfect
for the button mix that I wanted to add.  


The center of the flowers have the Jelly Bean half pearlz. They are easy
to set also. I used Dual Tip Glue Pen by HomeHobby by 3L.
All other adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.


I hope you come away with a love for buttons.  They look 
good on everything.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Kleenex Covers with Buttons Galore & More ~

Hi there!
I have another fun project using the Spring Value pack
and the Patriotic Value pack by Buttons Galore & More.
I did two different Kleenex Covers using the novelty buttons
for decorations.





I used a pattern, that I made, to get the dimensions for the
Kleenex Covers.  This was my starting point and I adjusted
as I needed to.  I used fabric glue but you sure could sew them
with a machine or hand sew. 


I know this is rough :):). The sides are going to be long but just trim
when you make the center fold.  I hand sewed the buttons on
 with coordinating embroidery thread.   


They make really cute gifts!!!

Deer by the River with Blue Knight Stamps~

Hi there!!
I got to play with the NEW stamp called
Silhouette Deer by the River  by
Blue Knight Stamps.  The picture of
this stamp could have been taken on our
property, maybe that is why I love it!!!  


The card is stamped with Versafine/Black Onyx and the
sky and pond water are colored with panpastels.  I used a circle mask to
get the sunset.  The sentiment is from the One Line Sentiments/
blessings. 
The bird is from the Birds ll set.


If you love nature this is a great stamp to add to your collection.
It is easy to color and looks stunning!!!  All adhesive
is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Handyman Tag with Buttons Galore & More~

Hi guys!!
I have another project to share using the 
Handyman Novelty Buttons by Buttons Galore & More. 


This is a mixed media tag using rubber stamps, stencils and the 
Handyman Buttons for the perfect 3D visual.  The buttons
have a shank so they work better if you remove the shank
and they will be easier to adhere to a paper project.  I'm using
Adhesive Dots by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are strong
and keep the button in place.


The buttons  add such a "special" touch to the tag!!  I love
the look!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay tuned for more projects using Buttons Galore & More
beautiful buttons!!

Art Journal Page with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L~

hey there!!
Today I'm sharing an Art Journal page over on the 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog.  It is called
"it's OK to be different because" 


This was so much fun to create and the 3D Foam Adhesive
really makes the stamped images pop off the page.  


The letters are adhered using the 3D Foam Squares and the E-Z Runner
Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. 
I used the 3D Foam Squares
 on every other letter.  Gives it a wonky look :):) 


As always I have all the details over on the 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog.  I hope you will 
take a look.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Mixed Media Tags with Buttons Galore & More~

Hi there button fans!!!
Today I'm sharing a couple of mixed media tags
using Buzzin Around Buttons by Buttons Galore & More.



The buttons are added to the finished tags using 
Adhesive Dots by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3l.  The Bee buttons
have a shank so you will need to take wire cutters and snip
the shank and then they can be easily added to your 
project.


The Bee, on the material bow, is adhered to a stick pin. Easy to create
for projects!!



Thanks for stopping by!!
Look in the novelty section for all of the fun themed 
buttons that look great on projects!
