Did you ever have one of those days when nothing goes as planned? Well I seem to be having months of those days. I've had several emails asking me how I make my buttons so last night the house was quiet, I shot a button video (plus a couple of videos for some new things I've been working on) got up early this morning to upload it and it keeps freezing. Crap. Now I have to reshoot the video but our house has been like Grand Central Station all morning with friends neighbours and contractors popping in.
On the upside. When I was shooting my video I was showing how I colored the buttons with marker and I liked how it turned out when the stitches on the big button aren't colored so I left my marker flat and colored the rest of the button that way. I put together this sailboat card to go with my new button. for the boat I used the Oval Accent Bigz Clear die. The waves were made with the large scallop edgelit and for the thread in the button I cut 2 thin strips of card stock and threaded them through the holes.
