Button Bracelet

     Quite often demonstrators share new ideas they have discovered with our Stampin' Up! products.  Several months ago, Patty Bennett shared a really cute button bracelet made with some now retired buttons.  She was kind enough to share a tutorial on how hers was made, so I copied the instructions and filed them away for future reference.
     Recently, my upline, Georgia Caulkins, held a class and invited her downline to attend and make bracelets from the current Stampin' Up! buttons.  Isn't this just so cute?  It was so much easier to make than I imagined!  Next time, though, I'll make mine just a little bit bigger, as I don't like anything snug around my wrists.  Thanks to my daughter, Elizabeth, for modeling the bracelet so I could get a good picture.
     If you are interested in learning how to make one of these for yourself, just give me a call at (309) 221-0978, or send me a message at tmustain@centurytel.net.  Stampin' Up! makes this so easy by offering us coordinating colors.  One package of buttons will make at least 2 bracelets, so don't delay.  These would make really cute Christmas presents, too.

Happy Stamping,

Holiday Mini Catalog begins Today!

     The new Holiday Mini Catalog is available for ordering today!  You'll love all the exciting new additions for your stamping, crafting and scrapbooking collections.  One of the newest tools available is the Simply Scored.  You will love this tool to score lines on your projects for easier folding.  Visit my website HERE to see the Simply Scored tool and all the great projects you can make.  Contact me for more information on how you can purchase this great tool!

     One program I do every month is teach a card class at a local assisted living center.  Most are not able to do any stamping, but they love the idea of making cards to send to their loved ones.  It is such a joy to see their happiness when they assemble the cards.  These are the cards we made last month.  Would you like to make cards or other gifts yourself?  I am looking to start new clubs this fall.  I am willing to do Hostess Clubs, or Stamp-A-Stacks.  Contact me for more information.


Until next time,

Happy Stamping,
