Tutorial Time!

Angela has taken the time to show us how she took Charlene's FANTASTIC custom buttons, and used them as a stamp on her layout!!


Textured clay button (Charlene's Button Box Custom Buttons for The Story Matters!)

Xyron 1.5 inch Sticker Maker

Handle (I used a button making base, but a plastic pop bottle cap would also work)



  1. Run button through Sticker Maker.

  1. Adhere the plastic pop bottle cap or other handle to the button.

  1. Ink and stamp…vary the pressure when stamping to generate different looks.

  2. Clean the button with a wet wipe or damp paper towel…as long as you’re not using an ink for non-porous materials (i.e. staz-on), your button will be good as new, ready to use on another project!!

And here is the technique in Angela's layout!
FABULOUS! Thank you Angela!
