New Sewing SVGs & $1 Retirement Sale!

It’s that time of year again…time for a change in routine, the kids are getting out of school for the summer break, the days are longer and we are all ready for some serious relaxing! It is also time for the MyGrafico semi-annual retirement sale! I have lots of oldies but goodies going away to make room for all of the new kits up my sleeve…speaking of new kits here is one I just finished called Sewing Bits & Bobs:

You get 10 SVG files to cut on your Electronic die cutter (I use a Cricut and SCAL2 software but please note that SCAL3 will not work with Cricut Machines…also note that MyGrafico is giving away a copy of SCAL3 and a Silhouette SD-a far superior die cutter and I will be buying one when my Cricut kicks the bucket 🙂 -on their facebook page, it is an awesome prize and I love to see one of my blog friends win it!) Also I wanted to mention that the button die cuts match the Cute as a Button clear stamp set from Pink Persimmon, they are so fun to cut and stamp!

The bobbins can be used as decorations on your cards and scrapbooks but they ca also be used to store and organize your thread and ribbon, don’tcha love multitasking 😀

Here is a hang-card. I used it to make a button card but you can also use this to package and display hand-made earrings. I sell lots of my hand-made earrings at several shops and these little cards add a professional touch!

Dress-forms are very chic and you get 3 to choose from!

This project qualifies for the following challenges: Clear It Out!, Crazy Amigo Challenge, Going Grey With Scrap-Creations, Hooked on Crafts , House of Gilli, Make it Monday, There’s Magic in the Air, Top Tip Tuesday, and Paper Sundaes

Now on to the retirement sale!

All of these products have been reduced to $1 today through Saturday, after that they are gone! Get them while you can and save $$$!

C’mon, Let’s make buttons!

Sometimes you just need to play in your crafty space, am I right? There is no better way to recharge the creative batteries then to experiment with your art supplies. I was having a hectic few weeks and once everything settled down I went down in my craft room and spent an entire day making buttons with stuff I already had lying around…in fact I even raided the recycle bin, here is a look at what I made:

Wanna try? Well I made a video tutorial showing you exactly how I made the above buttons, Grab a cuppa, sit back and relax and learn howe to make custom (aka faux) buttons for you cards and scrapbook pages.

Hey do you like my groovy tunes in the video? I learned how to add a music bed, I like it but if it is distracting  (or if you like it better!) leave me a comment and let me know, I am open to suggestions 🙂

EDIT: I removed the music under the video, the general consensus was that it mad it to hard to hear my “lovely” voice LOL! 🙂

Here is a closer look at some of the buttons:

This photo shows buttons made from punched cardstock circles and fun foam. Button stamps are from Pink Persimmon. Seam binding ribbon is from

The gold buttons are real, glued to the button card made from a frame stamp from About Art Accents. The faux buttons are made using the Ellison Embosslits die (SU!) then I rubbed the black ones with metallic rub-ons and the green ones with an olive green ink pad.

Just a reminder, if you haven’t had a chance to enter my ProMarker Give-away you can here, you have until March 13 to enter 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
