Gosh, I love a good button. It’s the perfect itty-bitty embellishment that can take any project to the next level and is my definite “go to” in paper crafting.  Today our lovely design team member Cyndee Kawa rocks the house in her farewell design team project using the Doodlebug Designs Mono Buttons.

Who doesn’t love a versatile embellishment? You’re in luck, because today’s steal, Doodlebug Mono Buttons, are exactly that! Doodlebug buttons come in bright, happy colors that coordinate and compliment so many paper collections and manufacturers. As soon as I got the buttons in my hands (and promptly hid the pink ones from my daughter), the ideas started coming!

Doodlebug buttons are one of those perfect embellishments that you can use for boys or girls, dress them up or leave them plain, make them the focus, or use them to enhance. The crafting possibilities are truly endless! And have I mentioned that there are GLITTERY and POLKA DOT buttons?

I thought I’d start out ‘simple’ and use buttons as so many of us do – the center of flowers. So sweet, and with the addition of a little twine, the perfect finishing touch to a layout (or card).

I’ve been wanting to scrap these photos of my daughter being fascinated with Daddy blowing bubbles. The pink buttons were the perfect way to highlight and represent the bubble gum color and bubbles themselves.  (Note the polka dots and glitter – love!) Buttons also make great borders and banner additions.

When I received the variety of button colors, I instantly thought RAINBOW! I dug through my paper scraps, and created this happy card.

After having two opportunities come along this spring (that I’d never imagined), I decided I needed to jump on the bucket list bandwagon, so I created a layout about it! And buttons are the perfect thing to fill your bucket with!

For my final Design Team project, I thought I’d make my sweet girl a little something for the upcoming 4th of July. She *loves* to get all dressed up in red/white/blue for it, so what better addition to her outfit, but a hair clip! She caught me while I was gluing it all together, and managed to walk off with a few more of the glittery buttons – for HER scrapbook stash…

A HUGE thank you to Kristy and ScrapbookSteals for giving me this amazing opportunity of being on the Spring Term Design Team. It’s been so much fun, and working with Kristy is always a treat! I loved coming up with ideas, and hopefully gave some inspiration along the way! Now head back to ScrapbookSteals.com and steal yourself some Doodlebug Mono Buttons!
