Buttons & Brads...Oh My!

This week at Cooking with Cricut our design team was challenged to create inspiration using "Buttons and Brads". 

 For this challenge I created a couple of layouts.

 I don't know about you, but I need to use up some of my stash alphabet stickers...I mean..I do have a CRICUT now and can create any title I want to.  :o)  I decided to use some of my "stash stickers" and create a matching # using my Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.   

 I even "speckled" the #7 to look like the alphabet cardstock stickers.

Oh - and this is a "Buttons and Brads" challenge so here's my brads.....lots of them!  :o)

For my second layout I brought out the cartridges!  5 of them to be exact!

 #1 Dad was created using the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge.
 The "Fun - Fun - Fun" title was created using
A Child's Year, Jasmine and Create-a-Critter cartridges.

The buttons add a splash of color.  The star on the caleldar page is a brad too!

The camera was on the Summer Vacation cartridge. 
It's hard to see, but the lens is actually a peice of transparency.  :o) 

Let me see what you create, come join in on the fun at CWC and link your project to our "Buttons and Brads" challenge. 


  1. Awesome layouts of your guys, Hattie! Love them both! Great details and fun colors.

  2. Hattie, I just love your layouts. Great use of the brads on the 7th Grade phoyo page and good color combo. but most of all on that page I love the photo!! What a handsome young man you have there!!
    And your summer LO is so bright and cheerful. I can't believe you used all those cartridges. That is some work. I love the camera cut and the way you did the lens. The buttons sure do add a great pop of color to the page. Great Layouts!!

  3. Great job on both your layouts. Love the colors and all the different carts you used on the orange dad one. Love how on the blue and gray one you matched the layout colors to your sons adorable pic. Don't tell him I said he was adorable. LOL
