I always have a million ideas floating around in my head... and every now and then I follow through and make one or two of them! Here's a few things I've recently completed. First up is some cute (digital) button art:

I've been seeing some really cute button art on Pinterest lately. (Speaking of, have you looked at Pinterest yet? Are you as addicted as I am? If you haven't, and you're interested, let me know and I'll send you an invite!) I'm not really into sewing - I don't even have any real buttons - but I have a huge digital stash so I decided to give it a try with Photoshop. Now I just need to print and frame it! I have the perfect spot for it in my entry way.

Next up: teacher gifts. These little apples have nothing to do with scrapping, or Photoshop, but I had to share because they are so cute! I used this tutorial from The Crafting Chicks.

I packaged them up in little treat bags, and I made this treat topper in Photoshop. Unfortunately I left it all 'til the last minute so I didn't photograph the finished product!

And, now that it's June and summer is officially here, we made our family summer fun list. You might remember the one I did last year... we loved it so much we had to do another. It's already printed off and hanging on the fridge!

What do you think? Have you made anything fun with your digi stash lately? I already have a couple more in the works!
