New goodies and button flowers!

Last week was my birthday so my boyfriend took me to Bristol Hobbycraft. Oh My! I was in heaven! I just wanted to stay there all day but he finally managed to drag me out and it's a good job he did, so that I didn't spend any more money!! So what did I buy?

Look at all that gorgeous stash!! Have been playing with some of it already... although the papers are too beautiful to cut into right away!

I have signed up for Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday and as today was the first promt I decided that I needed to get myself in gear so have been making some pretty embellishments to go on my pages. Yes I know should do the cover first but am not totally sure what I want to do yet, may have a play later. Anyways here are my button flowers:

Have made 30 of them so that there is one for each day, took me a while as I hand stitched all the buttons but I think they are pretty! Well had better start organising myself, thanks for looking! xx


  1. Wow, you done well.
    I went to HC yesterday, it was so busy.
    My DH bought me a new Paper Mania tote - i love it.
    Love the look of those buttons - did you use an old book?

    Good luck with LSNED.

  2. That's what I call stash! Lucky you.

  3. What a lovely idea those button flowers! I have signed up to the class too, but you are more ahead than me even without the covers! LOL

  4. Ohmygosh they are SO pretty! I might have to make some of those.

  5. Now thts's what I call stash! Ooooo Ooooo!

    And I just love your flowers .... O want to make some now, the text print makes them look some retro.

    I have heard of the site before - can you print address in full?

  6. Love your button flowers, very cute.
