Holiday Frame: A Floral Welcome Frame

For those of you following along with the holiday frame project, there may be times when you don’t want a seasonal element in it. Today, I’m here to show you a welcome frame design for your frame for those in-between times of year!

Welcome frame featuring 28 Lilac Lane products by May Flaum from Buttons Galore. Easy photo frame home decor project.

This simple design makes use of beautiful elements from our 28 Lilac Lane “Attic Findings” kit, as well as 3D die cut elements. All of the paper elements are created from a single paper pad for easy coordination of colors and designs.

To create this welcome frame project, the background paper was cut to 8″ x 10″ to fit the frame opening. Then the crochet trim from the Attic Findings kit was cut to create the border and glued in place. The word “welcome” was die cut (sized to just slightly more than 5″) and the edges were inked to provide a drop shadow before adhering it as well.

The three flowers were sized to about 2.25″ in diameter, and then cut from different papers. (The stamens on two of the flowers were cut from another flower design that wasn’t used on the frame.) The edges of the pink flowers were inked, and then the flowers were assembled.

The finishing touch on the flowers were the embellishments from the Attic Findings kit. Each flower got its own touch of contrasting color. The buttons were threaded with embroidery floss and tied off before adhering to give them a finished look.

This welcome frame is a beautiful way to fill your holiday frame in between holidays! In case you’ve missed them, don’t forget to check out the previous installments in the holiday frame series. What holiday would you like to see added to the series next?

28 Lilac Lane Blog Hop: Spring Flowers

Welcome to the 28 Lilac Lane blog hop on the Buttons Galore blog! Let’s make some spring flowers! Make sure that you stay until the end today for the giveaway!

Spring has us all thinking of flowers! But in some areas they aren’t blooming yet, or we may not be able to have them in the house due to allergies.

The solution is simple…fabric and buttons! 28 Lilac Lane spring flowers

This project starts with fabric and interfacing. Iron heavy-duty iron-on interfacing to the back side of a small fabric scrap. Then, wrong sides together, iron another fabric scrap to the back side of it. This will create a double-sided piece of fabric, with the interfacing in the middle to stiffen the fabric.

Run the fabric through your die cutting machine to make flowers. Repeat with several different fabric scraps. If you don’t have scraps that will work for this project, visit your local quilt or sewing store and check out their fat quarter inventory for suitable fabric. Small prints work best for this project.

Fabric Flowers

Select a large button to coordinate with each of your spring flowers. With a piercer or large needle, poke holes through the flower where the button’s holes are.

Cut a length of the German Style wire about twice the desired stem length and fold it in half. Poke one end through each of the button’s holes and the flower and pull to snug the loop down on top of the button. Begin twisting the wire together under the flower. Continue until you reach the desired stem length and clip off the wire ends.

Arrange your spring flowers in a vase, and for the finishing touch wrap baker’s twine around the neck and tie a pretty bow!

Good Morning Sunshine Layout with 28 Lilac Lane

Today, the Buttons Galore blog is pleased to welcome Karla Yungwirth as guest blogger to share this beautiful scrapbook layout with us.

Sunshine scrapbook layout using 28 Lilac Lane embellishment by Karla Yungwirth
I am so excited to share a layout with you today that I’ve created with the new collection from 28 Lilac Lane by May Flaum! I am so in love with these amazing embellishments – the kits are full of beautiful sequins and lovely buttons, along with an amazing assortment of goodies that just make you need to create something gorgeous with them!
Title with 28 Lilac Lane embellishmentsI wanted to create a light, spring-like look to my page, so I started off by using some of the white and yellow beads over my Sunshine title sticker, gluing them on with matte medium liquid adhesive. They give such a cool effect over the sticker!
Scrapbook layout embellishment close-up
 I layered my photo and some coordinating papers over a diagonal paper arrangement, which I stitched on using my sewing machine. The pretty buttons, beads, sequins and pearls created lovely clusters on each side of my photo. The pink and white bakers twine, included in the Tropical Twist Embellishment kit, was perfect to tie through a pink button and my Love tag. I even added some of the lovely lace, which you can find in the Attic Findings kit, on the bottom of the tag along with the golden sun charm from the Tropical Twist kit!
Scrapbook layout embellishmentI scattered sequins around my page and near my title and stitched paper strips at the top of my page, along with another pretty pearl. It’s amazing how the embellishments in these kits can really make a layout pop! I had so much fun creating this layout, and I have so many more ideas that I can use these pretty embellishments kits on! Wishing you a happy, crafty and creative day!

Buzzing into Spring with a 28 Lilac Lane Card

Hello there!

Ashli Oliver here with you today to share a super easy mixed media card with big impact!

After swiping on white acrylic paint and drizzling liquid glue on top, I simply stuck lots of little goodies in. The key to making this work is sticking your buttons, sequins, and pearls into your painty goodness while everything is still wet!

Mixed Media Spring Bee Card by Ashli Oliver for Buttons Galore

Don’t be afraid to get paint on your embellishments… that is half the fun, after all!

Mixed Media spring card with 3D bee button and 28 Lilac Lane embellishments

I used a three dimensional Bee Button, goodies from the Antique Tin set, and plenty of the amazing 28 Lilac Lane Collection!

TIP: Did you know that many buttons can be cut in half? That’s right! Using my Tim Holtz scissors, I cut one of the gold Antique Buttons right in half so that I could add it to the edge of my card and tuck the other piece behind my bee!

What a great way to stretch the stash too!

Oh, and of course… I also used those same scissors to cut the backs off of any buttons so I could adhere them to my card.

Once my embellishments were set in, I simply let the paint dry overnight. Then, I added in some watercolor and mist droplets. A piece of patterned paper layered behind the card front finishes this card off!

Super fun and a great card for spring! In fact, I think this will serve as a Mother’s Day card around here as my mother loves bees!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Button Monogram with 28 Lilac Lane

Button Monogram with 28 Lilac Lane

Simply gluing buttons to a wooden monogram is a fantastic project for so many reasons: It’s fun to do, it is easy and makes a great family craft, and it will look fantastic displayed in your home! Today I am sharing a video showing how I created the letter M for my studio with the “On Lilac Lane” bottle. Not to be biased – but this is my favorite bottle and color so it was the perfect choice for this project. From holiday or seasonal décor to bedroom décor creating not just button monograms but shapes of all kinds decorated with buttons and embellishments is a lot of fun.

A 28 Lilac Lane Card with Watercolor!

I could not be more excited that 28 Lilac Lane is now shipping to stores! I can’t wait to see what everyone creates – there is a whole world of crafty possibilities awaiting inside each and every kit. One of my favorite ways to play with the line is to accent a single stamped and colored image on a card, tag, or small canvas décor piece.

28 Lilac Lane card with watercolor

Today I have a video tutorial for a 28 Lilac Lane card featuring some lilac coloring and one of my favorite 28 Lilac Lane kits, French Quarter. My tip for keeping your embellishments in a tight cluster is to begin with the largest elements, and work smaller. This lets me fill in the gaps and create clusters almost effortlessly! Thanks to the variety of sizes in the kits from bigger buttons down to tiny seed beads, I’ve always got something that works!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this 28 Lilac Lane card video tutorial and that I’ve inspired you to do a bit of coloring as well as some fun embellishing. Happy Crafting!
