By making my cards 4.25" square, I was able to place my sentiment circle off the top of the card. The cards still fit in regular A2 size envelopes.
For my notebook, I created a round embellishment by using the *Absolutely Fabulous* sentiment from Mixed Messages and then spelling out *ideas* using small alphabet stamps. I also reach for more of those big honkin' Vintage Buttons that I love so much. I just scattered them on my notebook along the strips of ribbon. Notebook from Target.
Here's a little closeup shot of the buttons and the circle embellishment.
Supplies used for this project:
Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages, Borders and Corners Circles, Damask Designs, Spiral Bouquet, Guidelines, Guidelines Two, Everyday Classics, Garden of Life
Paper: Bitty Dots Basics patterned paper, Kraft Cardstock
Buttons: Vintage Buttons in White, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Ripe Avocado
Other: twine string
Tip: Use up all supplies from one project before moving to the next project. If you think *I'll save these little pieces for another project*.....they'll most likely end up cluttering your space. Use it all up now, clean up.....then move on to your next project. It's a good thing. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!!
