Buttons Galore!!

This week's challenge item at Practical Scrappers is buttons! FOr our challenge this week, I wanted to step away from the regular old round buttons and add some fun by mixing it up with some decorative shape buttons that I got out of the clearance bin at Joann's for 50 cents for the 6 of them! I used my buttons to as a way to embellish my tree (like they were leaves or falling apples). Also, I decided to create a hidden journal tag behind my pictures and use the buttons as way to easily grab the tag and side it out to read!

Here's my LO:

White/Color Core Challenge @ Practical Scrappers.

This week's challenge is one of my favorite products to use mostly because I am such an addict to my Cuttlebug and all the cool techniques I can do with. White core and color core cardstock are so fun to use they can make your projects looked finished and sometimes even create more elegance.

Here's my project for this week:

I used Core'dinations color core (orange) cardstock that I embossed with the daisy folder in the With Gratitude combo pack. I then sanded it down with an emery board to reveal the light orange core. Also, you can see that I have been having a blast with my Copic markers coloring images, and they do do not disappoint! I actually feel like an adult doing all this coloring and blending now!

This month's sponsor is Robyn's Fetish at Practical Scrappers. Here's a little bit about Robyn's Fetish and More...

White Pen Challenge @ Practical Scrappers!

Here's my project for this week:

A simple little card I did using a digi stamp from our September sponsor, Robyn's Fetish, called "A Little Birdie Told Me". I used my white pen to doodle on the bird after I coloring with my copics and I used the white pen to create my sentiment.

Also, I have a LO I just finished up the other day for the Treasure Hunt going on at Treasured Scrapbooking. My project was eliminated so I can share it now! The hunt is a lot of fun and it's the second year I've done it now-- I always love the challenges they come up with. I will continue do the challenges even though I didn't make the cut just to play along. This LO also shows you how you can use your white pen on a LO so it fits in nice with this post!

Thanks for stopping in!
