1 Product 2 Ways – Shimelle Wood Buttons

By Jenni Calma

February 21, 2017

I am very excited to share this week’s 1 Product 2 Ways post because of this amazing layout below!  This week’s assignment was to use the Shimelle ‘Little By Little’ Wood Buttons from the February “So This Happened” kit.  Jennifer created this absolutely stunning page with a giant black and white photograph.

I have had this picture sitting around for four years!  As soon as I saw the Shimelle wood buttons, I knew I wanted to use them with it.  My intention was to create a list of sorts using the buttons as bullets to highlight the Maggie Holmes stick sentiments.  Because the picture is so large, I felt it important to keep the embellishments to a minimum and focus on Phoebe.”

I can’t say enough go things about Jennifer’s layout.  It is the kind of project that should be in a frame or shadow box!

The next layout is by yours truly…which is exciting to share because of the photo I used.

I have been wanting to go to CHA, i.e. Creativation for years and finally, last month I got to go!  Not only, did I get to meet some of my scrapbooking idols like Heidi Swapp and Amy Tan, but I got to put real life voices and personalities to these amazing talents from Scrapbook Circle!  That was the highlight of the weekend and this photo was from the Saturday.

I decided to make this project a play on the graphic patterns in the papers and embellishments.  I layered papers and stickers, creating associations between the angles and colors.  I used the buttons in a similar way to Jennifer, using them as bullet points for other stickers.  I also combined them under matching colors creating clusters following the diagonal half of the patterned paper I cut.

I love this month’s kit, it is full of some of my favorites colors and classic patterns that never go out of style!  Jennifer’s layout is a beautiful example of the power of simplicity, although she did in fact, use lots of embellishments.  That combination is an amazing design ability.  My page was so much fun to play off of all my favorite pieces in the February kit combined!
