A Flair for Buttons | Selfie Smiles

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of I do receive compensation and material product from A Flair for Buttons and American Crafts to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own.

You can't go wrong with Gold!  It matches everything, and that's why I decided to use the LOVE Gold Foil Flair set from A Flair for Buttons on the layout I'm sharing today.  I wanted to incorporate the Flair Buttons into my background design, so I cut the All Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe on White cardstock.  Then I backed each section of the hearts with various patterned papers from the Finders Keepers collection from Amy Tangerine.

Before adding the Flair Buttons and embellishments, I machine stitched through each row of hearts.  Then I placed my photo in the center of the die cut.  Once the photo was in place, I added the Flair, spacing them out around the heart die cut.  I wanted the Flair Buttons placed on the larger hearts on the outside edges of the die cut, to leave room for smaller embellishments toward the center of the die cut.

I decided to place the title close to the photo, to avoid covering a lot of the background detail.  I chose coordinating Thickers from the Finders Keepers collection for the title.  As a finishing touch to the layout, I stamped the plus sign from the Finders Keepers stamp set in Black ink, in some of the White space of the die cut.  Then I used matching water colors, to add color to the stamped images.
