Playful Buttons & Twine

(more details, the second page & some close up shots will be posted on the Creative Accents blog on Monday!)

Here's a couple great projects I've had pinned for a while on Pinterest!  (If you're not familiar with Pinterest, you can click on the photo to go to the original blog post featuring these projects.)
Hope this gives you some more inspiration... we'd love to have you play along with our Buttons & Twine challenge this month!

More Buttons & Twine!

I'm back with some more buttons & twine to share with you and get those creative juices flowing...

Here's what Janet came up with (after she made a sassy button sampler, which you can also see on her blog!  This really was a challenge for her):

And Roxy made this great little card:

I've noticed so many projects lately that feature buttons & twine, they certainly work well together and I can't wait to see how you use them!  Link up your project and find out prize details on this post.

June Challenge: Buttons & Twine

It's time for a new Seriously Creative Challenge... and we've got a fun one that seems to me like it suits spring & summer just perfectly! This month we're challenging you to use both Buttons & Twine on your projects!
Here's a few samples from our Seriously Creative Design Team to get your creative juices flowing...

Julie made a cute 6x6 canvas with a removable button bracelet on it (watch for a link on our store blog)
Leslea's playful layout uses both elements perfectly:
Sarah used buttons & twine to make a cool bracket detail!

The prize for this month will include an assortment of buttons and your choice of 5 colours of Twinery Baker's Twine from our online store (5 yards of each) PLUS a little surprise from us :)

We can't wait to see what you create!   You've got all month to play along!
