A couple of pages.....

Every 3rd Friday I have a group of 10 AMAZING women that come to my house to make 4 scrapbook pages and crop till they drop! It is a blast and every month I can't wait for 3rd Friday to come around. This month we used the CTMH papers from the Emporium Level 2 paper pack. I LOVE this paper pack!! I found it to be sooo versitile!!! I love the colors and the patterns too!

If you would like to take a peak at the Emporium papers and Stickease, click here! If you would like to purchase the paper pack or any of the matching accessories, all you need to do is place an order online through my website and it will be shipped directly to you!

I wanted to share the pages that we made this last Friday. I try to keep the pages generic enough so my club girls can use the photos that they want to go on the pages.

Each month I try to show a different embellishment or technique that they can use to enhance their pages, cards or paper projects. This month I let them create with buttons. The buttons that we used on these pages are from the Winter Craft Buttons collection. The buttons are a perfect match for the Emporium papers!!

I chose to leave the center's of my buttons plain because I used soooo many of them on these 2 pages. Sometimes I use waxy flax, hemp or embroidery floss to create a threaded look to the buttons. The Colonial White Ricrac that is wrapped around the photo can be purchased through my website too!!

I do not have a title on these pages yet as I created 2 other pages that have more photos that go with these. The other pages will have a title and journaling to explain why the kids and my mom are in a wheelchair! Who knew a wheelchair could be so entertaining when you don't have to use one.

Supplies for these pages:
Paper: Emporium Level 2 Paper Pack
Colors: Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue, Buttercup, Colonial White and Cocoa
Embellishments: Colonial White Ricrac, Winter Craft Buttons

I used the CMTH Cherish scrapbook program to create the LO's on these pages. If you ever have a creative block with either your scrapbooking or card making, CTMH offers amazing books to help you oput with that!! Check them out here!! I would be lost without these programs and can't say enough good about them!!!

As soon as I have completed the other pages that we created at club, I will post them too!

I hope that I have inspired you to get out your buttons and go CRAZY!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
