Bachelorette buttons!

No Comments »

I was commissioned to make a set of Lady GaGa themed buttons for a friend’s bachelorette party. The images they provided were great, and they made for perfect buttons. I haven’t used this larger size much (2 1/4″) but I’m liking them for bigger pieces.

Derby Swap

No Comments »

Earlier this year I completed a roller derby themed swap on Craftster. The way it works is that you sign up for a swap and the organizer pairs you with another craftster, and you each make a package for each other and ship to the other. The girl I was paired up with was a derby debutante, and I made magnets, buttons, a hand carved custom stamp (carved from an image I photoshopped together), stationary and letterhead that I embossed with Martha Stewart embossing powders, and a tank top with the logo of her local derby team that I rhinestoned. I really love working with rhinestones, and both of the swaps I’ve completed have featured a rhinestoned project. Enjoy!
