Less is more : twine or string

Hi there!

I have spent the last few days cleaning and organising my craft room... what a strange feeling, part of me don't feel like crafting now, because I love the new neatness, and don't want to mess it up again, and the other part feels  newly inspired because of the neglected stuff I discovered!

I guess the solution is to tidy up after each card hey... will that happen... just have to wait and see ;)

Chrissie & Jen are challenging us this week to use twine or string at Less is more.

Here's my card... with buttons and twine ( buttons newly discovered old stash! )

I used the the rhinestone function in my Silhouette designer software to punch the holes around the frame. Then just randomly did the threading with twine adding 3 wood buttons as I went along.

Thanks for looking!

That's it for now... wishing you a blessed Sunday!

I was cleaning last night too as I couldn't see my craft space. I have a hard time creating with lots of clutter! Your buttons are awesome. I love how you've attached them. So clever and cool looking.

Ja, vrou, hier by my hou 'n geordende craft tafel ook net tot ek my volgende kaartjie of scrapbookblad gemaak het en ek deel jou gevoel van nie weet of jy nou weer moet deurmekaar krap na 'n skoonmaak sessie nie!! In elk geval, ek is skoon in verwondering oor daai stunning knopies wat jy ontdek het - te cute vir woorde!! En dan het jy dit so oulik gebruik om dit so mooi te laat uitstaan!!!
... en daai silhouette van jou - wat kan jy NOG met hom doen, vrou??? Dis net ongelooflik hoe jy hom gebruik!!
O, moet nog se jou kleure lyk lieflik bymekaar!! Pragtig, pragtig, pragtig!!!
NS. Ek het nou finaal tot die slotsom gekom dat hulle kreatiwiteits- en oorspronklikheids- pilletjies by julle in die apteek verkoop en dat jy elke aand 'n hele pakkie van elk drink!!
Lekker slaap, vrou!!
