Beautiful Buttons and Fun Christmas Card w/ Masking Ideas

So, when Stampin’ Up posted the weekly deals yesterday, I was initially surprised that there were fewer than in previous weeks.  But after looking at the items, I realized that just because there were fewer, didn’t mean they weren’t great items!  I LOVE some of these buttons and the masks and heck 25% off is still 25% I don’t have to pay – right?  And who doesn’t love a sale?  Smile 

So today, I thought I’d share a few project ideas using the fun goodies on sale this week:


Metal Rimmed Pearls – Easiest cute accessory around!

I love these little embellishments because they are super cute and did you know – they come with adhesive already on the back?!  Talk about making it so easy even my kiddos can do it!  In fact they did – here is the card I made for a recent class.  Check out  the matching blog post to see my kiddos recreate this card all by themselves and turning out pretty darn well, I would say too. Smile

Hearts & Stars Mask – Cute in any season

The hearts and stars mask is a great way to easily make your own custom background in any color you like!  I have use it a few times but this was one of my favorite and most popular designs.  Perfect for easy Christmas cards!

Classy Designer Buttons – Perfect accents for any card!

I also really like the Classy Designer Buttons.  I know I used them on a few cards lately but it appears I haven’t posted them to the blog yet.  So instead, I thought I’d share this cute card from my Stampin’ Up website (that page of mine with my class calendar, promotions, and all about the perks of joining my fun group as a demonstrator!)  Anyway, I love how this card is great for any paper you may have lying around.  It is just so easy to cut or punch a few squares, stamp a sentiment and embellish with some linen thread and the classy buttons!

Ok, off to do a little more prep work for my Northwest Crafty Escape Weekend coming up on Friday!  I have the goodie bag supplies being delivered today and their wrappings and baggies all made and ready to go!  Now to finish up some samples for some of the on site classes and we will be rockin’ and rollin’.  I can’t wait!
