Buttons Galore and More Challenge!

OK I am on a roll today! Well, we had internet connectivity issues this weekend so I haven't been able to post some projects that I wanted to. So here is my second post today for a challenge over at Buttons Galore and More!

I LOVE buttons! What fun! You may have seen my last post with buttons for the Moxie Fab World Challenge. I am submitting that one as well as this frame for the Buttons Galore challenge. It does ask for a card or tag for the challenge. I hope submitting these guys together is ok though.

So I took a small (5x5)wooden frame and painted it red, added some fun paper and then buttons! The snowflaks were labeled buttons even though they don't have the button holes! LOL!



And here is my Christmas card with fun buttons. I thought this would make a cute pair for a gift:


Thanks for stopping by!


Till later!

Moxie Fab World Challenge

I decided to play along with the Random Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. If you haven't been over there it's run by the wonderful folks from Paper Crafts and is awesome! I'm trying to get on board and play some challenges and have fun.

So the random challenge is to use button(s), a mustache(s), or an alcoholic beverage on your card. I love buttons so I went with that one.

Here is what I came up with using paper from Graphic 45:




Be sure to go check it out (MOXIE FAB WORLD) and play along with this or one of the other challenges they have going on right now!

Till later!

Just Us Girls Color Challenge!


This week the Just Us Girls challenge is a color challenge; Red, Green & White. What a great challenge to make some Christmas Cards!

Here is what I came up with using Unity Stamps:


I embossed the tree with green and red embossing powder. The star on top is actually one of those foamies from Michael's. It was on a page of stars my daughter made and gave to me, I kind of "stole" one from there. I'll have to show her because I think she would love it.

Be sure to swing on by the JUST US GIRLS BLOG and visit all Design team girlies to see what they cooked up and leave them some love.

How to play: You need to upload your project for this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Linky Tools form at the bottom of the JUGS POST HERE. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS111. After you post to Linky Tools you can also leave a comment here.

Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, November, 24. The Linky Tools form will close at that time. Our top pick, "Chic of the Week", will be announced on the following Friday morning.

Just Us Girls Technique Challenge



It's Saturday and time for another challenge with JUST US GIRLS! This week is technique week and the wonderful Lisa! The technique this week is the ghosting technique. You can find a great tutorial HERE on SCS!

Here is what I came up with using Unity and {ippity} stamps! Be sure to swing on by my etsy shop for {ippity} and if you are looking for something I don't have just let me know as I can get it for you! This card uses the "Noel" from the "Gingham Christmas Greetings" and the Music notes for the background from Music of My Heart.

Unity Friends with Flair

It's Friday and time for another Friends with Flair. This week I have some magnets to share with you. It's a school theme using some Unity sentiments. I've been making alot of magnets lately to sell in my Etsy Shop Ria Creations and to sell at fairs. This one is a custom order for personalization for a teacher gift.



The sentiment "thanks" and "my teacher" are from Unity kits. My papers are random ones I had in my stash.

Here is a picture including the front of the tin:

That's all for now! Be sure to swing by the Unity blog and check out what others came up with via the linky.

Thanks for stopping by!
