Buttons, Brads, and Bling!
I love the Scrap Your Stash videos on Two Peas. Every week we get a different challenge to actually use our treasured stash. This week's challenge by Paige Evans was to use buttons, brads, and bling as a frame or to frame any shape we choose. Sounds easy enough, right? My choice was a shamrock because my son's birthday is St. Patrick's Day. I cut the shamrock and some additional leaves (hearts) from assorted patterned papers using my Cameo. The fun part of this is gathering all the embellishments and attaching them. I will say that it took quite some time to do this, but it's so worth it in the end.
This was such a fun and relaxing layout to do. It was like a trip down memory lane seeing some embellishments I've had in my stash over ten years! If you're like me and need a push to use up some goodies, be sure to check out the Scrap Your Stash videos - I'm sure you'll be hooked just like me!
