Hey Scrap Bosses! I am so excited to share my first project with We R Memory Keepers (American Crafts), using the new Button Press! If you enjoy making buttons, then this tool is a must have!
The We R Memory Keepers Button Press is the perfect tool for all of your button making projects – from embellishments for scrapbook layouts to creating buttons for special occasions (i.e. birthdays).
Today, I am sharing three cards that feature custom button embellishments made with pattern paper from the new Vicki Boutin Storyteller Collection and the WRMK Button Press. I had a blast making these fun embellishments for my projects!
The first card features three small buttons, all created using a variety of pattern papers from the Storyteller Collection. Using the circle die tool that is included with the Button Press, I was able to isolate the pattern paper images that I wanted to be prominent on the buttons. I positioned the three buttons in a row on the left side of my card.
Note: Since the buttons used on all of my projects will not be worn, I opted to remove the pin element and replace it with foam circles (provided with the Button Press tool). That way, I can easily adhere buttons to any project!
For the second card, I used the Button Press to make a medium size button that serves as the middle element of a die cut flower. Using coordinating pattern paper from the Storyteller Collection made this element the focal point of this card.
For the third card, I created a large button that features a precious little bird from the Storyteller Songbird pattern paper. The die tool included with the Button Press made it easy cut this image! This large button was adhered to the right side of the card and layered on top of die cuts from the Storyteller Collection.
I had so much fun using the WRMK Button Press! And I hope you are inspired to create fun projects using this button maker as well.
Stay tuned for more projects coming soon to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel and Blog! Thanks for stopping by!

Mighty Networks App and Apple In-App Purchases Notice
Attention Apple iOS Users (iPhone, iPad):
Mighty Networks currently partners with Apple to offer an iOS Mighty Networks App to members and users (for both Apple and Android).
Members can access the Victoria Marie Designs Mighty Network through the Mighty Networks App or on the network website.
However, if you are an Apple iOS user, keep in mind that Apple charges a 30% In-App Purchase fee if you use the Mighty Networks App to purchase any premium content (ex: classes, workshops, premium groups).
Because I feel that this is an outrageous amount, I have disabled the in-app purchase option for iOS devices on the Victoria Marie Designs Mighty Network platform.
OPTION: If you are an iOS user (iPhone, iPad), you will need to use the Victoria Marie Designs Mighty Network website (not the iOS Mighty Networks App) to purchase premium content (i.e. crops, class). You will not be able to purchase the crop using the Mighty Networks App on our Apple iOS device.
This does not apply to In-App Purchases on Android devices.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I cannot wait to hang out with you on September 5th and 6th! If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
I recently took inventory of my digital photo collection and discovered that I have over 100,000 digital photos stored between my iPhone, my computer, and various external hard drives and flash disks!
Yep, you read that right…over 100,000 digital photos!
I decided that now is the time to tame the beast and get my photo collection under control. (Lord, help me!)
Coming soon to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel and Blog, I will be sharing my process for managing digital photos and why I made the decision to take less photos than in previous years.
Spoiler Alert: This was not an easy decision! For now, here are a few of my favorite digital photo organization tools. I will come back to these tools in more detail in September.
