Also, be sure to check Nichole's blog for a fun sketch CPS is doing, using Papertrey stamps. New stamp sets that haven't been released...a great sneaky peeky! I hope to play along today but will have some Valentine party girls here longer than planned....so we'll see.
Remember a few weeks ago when I showed you these tin molds that I found at the antique shop? I decided what they would be perfect for......BUTTONS! But not just ANY buttons! I'm talkin' beautiful buttons. Buttons of all colors. Buttons of all sizes. Buttons of all shapes. Glorious buttons.
We're talkin' PAPERTREY BUTTONS, people!!!!!!!!!
It's true, Papertrey is now carrying buttons! Can you believe it? Believe it, baby......check out Nichole's blog RIGHT HERE! Don't you LOVE buttons? I KNOW you LOVE buttons!! I love buttons!! I'm going to store mine in these adorable little tin molds...each tin holds one pack of buttons perfectly!
Aren't they deliciously scoop-able??? When I want to use the buttons, I simply dump them out onto a vintage tin and scoop them up with my measuring spoons. Oh, I'm in button heaven!
And did you see the new ribbon being introduced yesterday? More polka dots!! Yippee!
And I thought I would also show you my Papertrey ink pads. I know a lot of you have asked about storing the ink pads. My solution is very simple but it works for me. When I get a new ink pad, I punch a 1/4" and 5/8" circle of coordinating cardstock. The small circle gets stuck to the side of the ink pad with a sticky dot. The larger circle gets adhered to the top of the ink pad. Then I stack up the ink pads, they kind of nest into one another. This allows me to see all the colors from the side view. And when I have the inks laying out on my stamping table, I'm able to see the colored dots from the tops too. The visual of the colors make it easy to spot just what color I need. I don't keep my inks in any sort of basket. I use them so often that I just store them out in plain view. Easy peasy but it works for me.
