UYS #297 - Button Up!

Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! Once again the weekend just flew by - the weather was beautiful and we spent a lot of time outside enjoying it!

We have a fun new challenge for you today at Use Your Stuff. This week we are challenging you to use a long-forgotten item in your stash - Buttons! Use at least 2 buttons on your project. They can be real or paper - just show us 2 buttons.

For my project, I have used 2 wooden buttons that have been in my stash for ages. I must admit that I had a hard time using these cute little guys on a project. I have been hoarding them for a while now - they are just so cute - but, I am determined to make this the year that I use my pretties on projects - no more hoarding!

I used my favorite Valentine's Day color combo - kraft, red, and white on this card. The patterned paper is from Pebbles' - Be Mine - 6x6 paper pad. I used a die from Close To My Heart for the scalloped border and a die from Lawn Fawn for the heart. I tried adding my sentiment to the front of the card but couldn't get it to look like I wanted it to, so I added it to the inside.

Head on over to Use Your Stuff to see the beautiful projects from the rest of the design team. I hope you have some time to play along with us this week. I would love to see what you create with your buttons!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!


  1. So, what do we do with our projects when we're done, if we decide to join in on the challenge? Do we upload them here? Are there deadlines, or are these suggestions for us to follow along with at home?

  2. Cute card, might have to lift it, thanks for the inspiration.
