UIT Fasteners

As many of you know, I am a co-owner of Use It Tuesday...the challenge blog for hoarders. :) When I developed the list of challenges, I had to take a little peek at my own supplies, of course. I have a feeling many of you (not naming names) have similar issues, so this should be easy for you!

We want you to use your fasteners! We are talking buttons, brads, eyelets, grommets...and whatever else you think applies!

I used 10 buttons on this card. Yes, it did cause heart palpitations, I won't lie! But then I looked at what was 'left over' in my stash. It was a quick recovery. :)

This card started out to be quite linear, with the buttons all nicely lined up in little squares. When I slid the buttons off to tape my squares, I loved the randomness of the look, so I kept it. What do you think?

We would love to have you play with us this week! See you over at Use It Tuesday!

This is adorable, Siobhan! I love the buttons on there. I dunno though... my button stash is sacred to me. LOL! Well, it's not quite that bad but I do hoard the teeney embellies like they are going out of style. Your card is super cute!

Jenn Embry said...

Great card! Who knew buttons could be THE focal point and make such a great card. I love it! Perhaps I should try this with some of my miscellaneous buttons that don't match each other....because yeah, I admit it, I'm a button hoarder. LOL

I love it! I think random is better on a card like this. Love the tiny little "hello" at the top too.

I love all your adorable buttons Siobhan! I have so many that I don't use - I just never think about them.

I so need to visit the Use It Tuesday blog. I have so much stuff and some of it hasn't even been opened. I have to admit. I am a hoarder when it comes to my supplies. I love your card and the colors look so happy.
