Caroline says, "Both of these were inspired by a pillow I saw on Tumblr (but more so the card). It had a bunch of fabric buttons lines up in rows, so I lifted that for my card design. I used a similar idea for my layout and created a little grid with the glitter buttons. I used bits and pieces of the other Elements, like the rose and pearl brads, throughout the page. I have always loved working with the Elements from American Crafts, so I loved using them for my projects this month!"
When I saw this layout Amy Tan made for her blog assignment I did a little happy dance, cuz hey, that's me with her in the pics! I've had the opportunity to meet both Caroline and Amy in real life and let me just say, they're both wicked talented and super nice!

Amy says, "Any excuse to use extra Elements on a page is welcome in my book! I combined these fun photos taken by LA Photo Party with some papers from a couple new releases. The buttons and brads give the page splashes of color throughout and can easily add a unique touch to numerous projects."
Supplies: Vanilla 5x7" Cards (71343) - AC Cards & Envelopes, Delicate Paper (35413) - Hello Sunshine, Made in the Shade Paper (35379) - Peachy Keen, Stream (61733) - Mixtape, Plastic Buttons (85518) - Elements, Fantastic Salmon (53108) - Thickers, Plastic Rose Brads (85522) - Elements
"I used the scraps from the page above to make a card for a friend who is expecting her 3rd baby girl. Because the brads and stitches go through the front, once finished, I simply adhered a piece of patterned paper onto the back of the cover."
Have a happy weekend - hope it's filled with lots of scrapping and use of Elements! See you again on Monday!
