a little bit of arting...

with some delightful buttons from kittyrobot.

when the super cool
jodie leigh asked if i would guest design for the kittyrobot blog, i was THRILLED! i've been a fan since i got my first set of kittyrobot buttons (the adorable tiny owls) in a SIStv collection oh... 2+ years ago. and being the hoarder that i am, they still sit in their tiny little package... lookin' all cute n' stuff. only because i have yet to find that perfect project that will allow me to admire them on a daily basis. :)

i'd been making a list of all the lovelies i had been wanting to order... from sweet little cupcakes to teeny teacups to buttons that made me think of donuts (yes. donuts. they have sprinkles!) - so when i opened the special package of goodies she sent me, i was giddy because most of them were on my list. wheeeeeeeeeeee!

here's what i made:

#1 - a puffy frame. because well, that's what i do. ;) i used the yummy bling cupcake buttons in this piece, but i have to tell you... the picture just doesn't do them justice. you can't really tell here, but the frosting part of cupcakes has some glimmer & sparkle to it! so.delicious.

#2 - hoops. and cages. these were inspired, first - by a project that the crazy talented kerry lynn yeary created for her alameda project kit class over at kenner road (which i was lucky enough snag before they sold out!) and second - by the pretty romance rose button that jodie sent. the color lent itself perfectly to the BG birdcage patterned paper i had been hoarding forEVER. i knew i was saving it for a reason. ;)

#3 - holy crap... an actual layout! i've been wanting to scrap this photo of my little niece dressed up as a princess for the longest time (omg she's so cute!) and as soon as i saw the dollface fabric buttons (the red-haired doll is wearing a tiara!), i knew they'd be perfect for this project. it just so happened that the color combinations in my jenni bowlin april kit was meant for this project too... along with some heather bailey fabric scraps. and some dear lizzy crocheted cuties. and some beads. and some stickles sparkle. and a stitched title ala amy tangerine. :)

thanks again to jodie & ayesha for letting me play with some kittyrobot goodies! i'll be ordering some more lovelies soon.

i had a great time creating these projects. this was just the push i needed to get the mojo flowing again and i'm hoping it'll continue... especially with the upcoming "project" i have planned. stay tuned. :)

happy wednesday!
