Inspiration Jackpot!!!

This week's Designer Inspiration is brought to you by Keisha Campbell.

Keisha says: I am always inspired by buttons. I love to use them on my pages. I am always on the hunt for pretty, sparkly and unique buttons. These I grabbed up from Joann's by LaMode. I love to stock up on my fave buttons when they are on sale. I bought these a couple months ago and have been hoarding them in my special button box. I love that they are black with delicate details and a bit of sparkle-plus, they have a vintage look that works so well with JBS products. I have been so reluctant about trying to use this JBS green die cut pp-because it is so far from my usual girly colors. But it was perfect for me to use with my buttons. Although, this paper has navy-it looks like it has some black. I just added more black products to play that theme up. And the soft JBS floral paper gives it that girly touch!! All this inspiration from a couple of black buttons!!

Friday's Tutorial is from Amanda Johnson. (Sorry it's a little late. Doris had four days of jury duty last week and then her sister came for a visit). Click HERE to see step by step instructions for creating the gorgeous gesso butterfly on this layout. You really don't want to miss it as there are lots of great tips on covering chipboard, using gesso and spray ink, and machine stitching.

And we have another Summer CHA sneak peek! This one's from Ranjini Malhotra. It features the new patterned paper line Town Square plus new stickers, rub-ons, and chipboard buttons. Just lovely!
