Buttons Challenge

Thursday, June 3, 2010

Welcome to the New FROSTED DESIGNS!! We have made a few changes around here.... We are going to give you the chance to meet each of our designers each week, we are going to continue to challenge you to use up items you already have around your craft room in creative ways, and we are going to offer monthly prizes!!  We hope you like what you see and will come back to play along with us each week!!

Hi everyone!! My name is Barb (aka Crafty Girl) and I love everything about scrapbooking!! I have the most amazing husband and four children (20, 19, 17, & 8) who are the stars of my pages!! I started scrapbooking when my oldest daughter was an infant... so that would be 20 years ago!! It is hard to believe I have been doing it this long and how much scrapbooking has changed over the years! I prefer to do scrapbook pages over cards... for some reason I find them much more difficult!! I am currently on 4 design teams and have a guest design team spot coming up later in June!! All of this keeps me very busy!! My family is planning on making a big move this summer (or whenever the house sells!) from Indiana to Texas! We are very excited to live in a new city and discover all that Dallas has to offer!! You can find out more about me and some of my layouts by visiting my blog HERE!!



So.... here is the challenge I have picked for you this week!!! It's all about BUTTONS!!!! We all have them laying around in drawers, jars and baskets!!! Now it is time to get them out and put them to use!!! You can use as many (or little) as you would like! And then... be sure to post your project here!!! Why you ask?!!

You could win a prize package for becoming a follower and playing along!!! Each time you enter a project, you earn a chance to win June's prize pack!! The more challenges you enter, the more chances you have to win! At the end of the month we will do a random draw from all the entries to determine a winner!! What are you waiting for?!! Get to your scrap rooms and start creating!!!!

Here is my layout using buttons along with the rest of the design team!!


Barb used buttons as the centers to all of her flowers... she even layered a few. The red accents at the botttom of her page are also buttons. 



Joni used a couple regular buttons and 4 "ribbon" buttons (ribbon slides) on her layout featuring Little Yellow Bicycle's Vita Bella line. Before she put her stash of papers away...she also made 2 cards (one with buttons, so she's sharing a second project!!)


Cassie used buttons to add some fun accents to her card. She also used the theme to inspire the sentiment!!


Debbie used buttons within buttons as the centers of the flowers on this cute strawberry chipboard by Cosmo Cricket.




Erika used the buttons as a way to bring her colors all together.She enjoyed finding buttons that worked well with her new jillibean soup letters. This is a more whimsical layout than she usually does.. but she thought that it was fun!!!!



Diana used coordinating buttons to add interest to the edge of  her large circle. She also used buttons for the centers of her flowers!


Now that you have seen what our design team did with the buttons, it's your turn!! Remember, the more times you enter, the better your chances to win the June Prize package!!
