Flights of Fancy Spring Pillows

I’m madly in love with these pillows!! I’m a big fan of COLOR and I just LOVE that strip of BUTTONS down the right side of each pillow.

Even if you aren’t the kind of person who likes bright colors there might be something here for you. I can see these made in more neutral shades looking just as wonderful. Actually, I can imagine them for several different seasons as well. Can’t you?

Perfect for clearing out your stash of fabrics too!

If you’d like to learn how to make these for yourself please head on over to Carla Schauer Designs.


Reach for the buttons!

And you’ll land amongst the stars!

This time of year, many fine folks are spreading their wings and moving up in the world. This project goes out to all of the graduates out there, large and SMALL!

Here’s a hybrid home dec/scrapbook memorabilia collection to get your buttons sparkling for attention – check out my quickie forgotten fine art canvas makeover!

Old canvas was stripped from this frame.  The frame was then painted with acrylic paint.

Once dry, crackle medium was applied and spread, generously.  Let dry, at least until tacky.

Spread 2nd color over crackle medium.   (The 2nd coat doesn’t have to be perfect.) Let dry for several hours.

Once dry, attach chicken wire to the backside with strong staple gun.

Drape fabric onto the back of chicken wire and attach.

Cut stars from card stock and embellish with baker’s twine embellished buttons from Buttons Galore & More.

Lay out pictures and embellishments, memorabilia, etc.

Secure with glue, tape or clips, as desired.

Give the grad in your world a big hug and blessings to REACH FOR THE STARS!

Simple but Sweet Coffee Plaque

This a “Simple but Sweet Coffee Plaque” from Christine at Christine and Co.  I love her tag line “Because I’m rarely alone”.  I’ll bet you can relate to that? I know, I can!

I like the way she used our buttons to anchor the corners of her project. Please go over and visit her tutorial here. You won’t believe how simple it really is!
