Basically Bare and a button card~together!!!


Hi everyone~how about a Basically Bare album with a vintage button card for the cover?  Another one of my ideas.........I took this vintage button card { I found junkin' in Indiana} and  used the Bind-It-All to put holes in it, to match up with the Basically Bare album and then I un-did the album and re-did the album.  The first page is acrylic, so I decorated that leaving  the button card in original condition { well almost} I did put new holes in it!!

the button card~


I used the Basically Bare Wonky Windows Album, Fanciful Frame Set and the Dress Form Set on this album.  The paper is by Jenni Bowlin Studios Helmar 450 Quick Dry did all the gluing {and I was so glad it did}!!!!  Here is a look at the inside~







I was happy how it turned out~loved working with the Basically Bare chipboard products!!
