Cute as a ... button lo


This page was published in Scrapbooking. com magazine March  2011 issue
My new  and clean page- using all possible sizes of hand made buttons- all cut with Cheery Lynn dies:
buttons set #3 and  little circle stackers(the big ones, and then I just used a  hole office  punch to make holes and to make buttons from them)
This is one of my daughters palying with her good friend twin babies- the journaling is just in case:not her babies, not yet...  and I did a title using buttons instead the word..
I used the Girls Paperies papers, some old DCWV cardstock for the side buttons, half Basic Grey cardstock for matting, MLS small alphas and Pink Paislee 2 chipboard fonts for the title. The ribbons leftovers were used on the buttons and 2 flash cards from Studio Calico too. I think this is a very frugal page- you can use paper only and the only "expensive " thing here are the flash cards  that can be done at home too, using you PC..You can use any  font leftovers and any pink and blue cardstock leftovers for the small buttons cuts here. It's also a very fast page- 15 minutes and you are  done.. Just make some cuts, holes and tie your ribbons.
