Happy Challenge Thursday everyone! Susan Stringfellow here with my good friend, Madeline Fox. Today's Challenge is to use Buttons. Madeline and I wanted to share some of the ways that we like to use buttons on our layouts.For both of my layouts, I have used the July Either Way kit and Add On kit. I added cardstock from my stash for the background.

Love the woodgrain Thickers and those flower embellishments are adorable! I cut out a camera from one of the patterned papers to use as a main...

Whitewashed Embossed Cardstock

cardstock embossing paint September 2013 Susan Stringfellow We Are Family

Hi everyone, Susan Stringfellow here, and I don't have a very exciting technique for you today, but I think its a super easy way to add interest to your layout or card. First, I have a confession.... I am afraid of solid colored cardstock. It's true - I can use black and white, but I have no idea how to make colorful cardstock look nice on a layout or card.
