Scrap within reach and discoveries while counting buttons…

Posted by swewi on March 21, 2010

Adrienne and Pauline from Scrappin’ Patch  sent me some “Scrap within reach” pp’s to play with. The “girly” ones they said. The collection is called “Urban garden”. When I got them, I didn’t find them very girly at all, but I REALLY liked the colours!! They also asked me to try and use the patterend sides of the papers (they are all double sided – great value!), and that can really be a challenge. To not choose the SAFE side of the pp if you know what I mean…

So, here’s what I have come up with so far – three LO’s.

Other products used: Jillibean soup journal sprout, BG cs & buttons, Webster’s & Rose Moka alphas, MM word fetti, misc pin & Prima packaging.

Other products used: BG alphas, Prima flower vine, flowers, leaves & pearls and a Tim Holtz book plate.

Close up of my kites:

I’ve got papers left, so there might be more inspiration coming. Watch this space…

And yes, I have a winner. I’m guessing that’s why a few of you are here. To see if you won my little RAK. Well… I discovered a few things while I was counting those darn buttons…

1 – I have a LOT of purple buttons. Don’t need to stock up on that any time soon.

2 – I have too FEW red buttons. But I knew that already.

3 – I found one button that had the word “playboy” on it. Have no idea where I got that button from. Would really like to know!

4 – I really need to vacuum the floor in my scrap studio… I dropped a lot of buttons while counting, and found a lot of dust. Time to clean for sure.

5 – I have WAY more buttons that I thought!!! That jar is not even half full, and the count came to…
