Scraptastic Button Challenge

Today I am going to share some inspiration to get you guys thinking about using buttons on your pages. Then you should visit Scraptastic's Blog HERE for the Button challenge and a chance to win the gift certificate this month.

For both of my layouts, I have used the July Either Way kit and Add On kit. I added cardstock from my stash for the background. Then I stamped and used gold tinsel embossing powder to heat emboss on vellum with the Either Way stamp set. 

My favorite way to use buttons is in a title in place of the letter "O". It's a simple thing, but I do like the fun of it. Seemed to add whimsy to my goofy troll layout. I tied the embroidery floss thru the button, tied a bow, and then attached it to the layout using adhesive dots, but sometimes I just stitch thru the page to secure a button.

 For my second layout I wanted to make my own button card to go with the vintage textiles in my photos. The buttons in this kit are super cute. I just tied string thru the buttons in different ways and again attached with an adhesive dot.
