Many of you know that I’ve sewn and quilted for years… LOL, the first time I picked up a needle I was 4 years old! Color, fabric and texture captured my imagination at a very early age.
So… a few weeks ago I was wandering through one of our local mega craft stores, and spotted a (new to me) punch with buttons and needles… and thread. The “button chain” punch was on sale too… I had to have it!
I don’t know what I was thinking… I thought I’d be able to punch the string of buttons and needles and have them align perfectly on a standard A2 card. Unfortunately, it didn’t work quite the way most edging punches do… but I did make a few quick cards for a quilter friend!
All today’s cards will feature many of the basic supplies listed below along with various "Stampin’ up!” stamp sets and other supplies will be listed below each card for your convenience.
