Introducing Button Boutique & Bitty Background Blocks

Welcome back for day 6 of our 4th Anniversary festivities!  Today marks the start of the "official" countdown, where I will be showcasing all of our new February products for the next five days, along with some help from the rest of the team!

Michelle's headshot
Today I have an AMAZING, innovative product line to unveil…a little something that Michelle Wooderson and I have been working on together.

Several months ago, Michelle sent me sketches for a unique concept where a stamper can "build" their own vintage button cards.  As soon as I lay eyes on her concepts, and was dreaming about using this set myself, I just KNEW this was something I had to help bring to life!

Button Boutique is the result of Michelle bringing her love of all things vintage together with her love of stamping.

The details.

  • Button Boutique will be available for sale on February 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Button Boutique contains a total of 29 stamps (2 full-size button card frames, 4 borders, 6 decorative titles, 6 small accent sentiments, 1 stitched button divider, 4 large buttons, 3 small buttons, 2 small stitch images to use with buttons, 1 "handstamped by" image) 
  • These images are designed to coordinate with the Button Card Die Collection (more details below)

To complement the new Button Boutique set, we are also bringing you a fun new die collection.  This set of three dies makes it easy to create authentic looking vintage button cards.  The large rounded rectangle will match up perfectly with the frames & titles int he stamp set.  The small "hang tag hole" can be added for more authenticity.  And finally the pinked-edge "fabric swatch" is the perfect thing to add as a mat behind your buttons and more!

The details.

  • The Button Card Die Collection will be available for purchase on February 15th.
  • The set of three dies will retail for $10.
  • The Button Card Die Collection contains three dies with the following dimensions: 2-3/8" x 3-1/2" (A), 3/4" x 1/4" (B), 1-1/2" square (C).


In addition to the above Button Card Die Collection, we are also bringing you coordinating button dies!  I mean, you totally can't be creating all those adorable new button cards without having some fun, unique buttons to add into the mix!  We're talking thin chipboard, felt, fabric, patterned paper…the possibilities are endless!

The details.

  • Both the Buttoned Up #1 & Buttoned Up #2 dies will not be available for purchase until approximately February 18th due to some quality control issues.  This is only a estimated arrival, so they could possibly arrive sooner or later than this estimated date.  We will be sure to keep you posted.
  • The Buttoned Up #1 Die & Buttoned Up #2 Die will retail for $5 individually.
  • The Buttoned Up #1 Die creates three standard buttons with a single cut measuring 1", 3/4" & 1/2".  
  • The Buttoned Up #1 Die coordinates with the all 7 of the button images in the new Button Boutique stamp set.
  • The Buttoned Up #2 Die creates three scalloped-edge buttons with a single cut measuring 1", 3/4" & 1/2".


Now, what fun would it be if you couldn't die-cut heavy-duty button cards for use as mini-book covers or sturdy gift tags?  And who would want to diminish their creativity by not creating their very own buttons with dimension and pizzaz?  

Coasters closeup

All of these things are possible with a new light-weight, die-cuttable coaster-board we will now be carrying!  After endless amounts of researching, testing and more testing, we have found the PERFECT coaster-board that will work seamlessly with nearly all of our dies!  Think of coaster-board buttons covered with pretty patterned papers!  And the best part?  It is already a beautiful cream color, ready to be stamped!

The details.

  • Papertrey Coasters will be available for sale on February 15th.
  • One package will retail for $1.
  • A single package contains (25) Vintage Cream 4-inch square coasters.
  • This coasterboard is approximately 1/16" thick, with the perfect balance of softness & sturdiness to work with the majority of our dies.  (Some dies with several small, detailed interior cuts may not give you optimum results)

I have one additional stamp set to introduce to you today as well.  When I was experimenting with how I would want to use the button cards and button die shapes, I discovered that it would be so much fun to have smaller scaled background patterns with them.  Specifically adding patterns to the buttons themselves as well as the "pinked-edge fabric swatch" shape from the Button Card Die Collection.  

This is how the new Bitty Background Blocks stamp set came to be!  It contains six 1-1/2" square small-scale pattern swatches.  You will love how versatile this little set can be, even beyond buttons!

The details.

  • Bitty Background Blocks will be available for purchase on February 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Bitty Background Blocks contains a total of six 1-1/2" square pattern swatches.
  • These blocks will coordinate with the "pinked-edge fabric swatch" die from the Button Card Die Collection.
  • They will also work well with the new Buttoned Up Dies.

Well, I definitely think that that's enough new stuff for one day!  Let's get onto the projects!

Pin & clip
Are these not THE cutest things you have ever seen?  

Many of you have probably been dabbling in the latest craze, just like me, making flower pins. hair clips, headbands and the like.  I know I like to package them up as gifts for people, but it can be a little time consuming (not to mention daunting) to create something that looks really sophisticated and polished.  Button Boutique provides THE perfect solution for these!

Flower dies
I started by cutting out some flowers with these Beautiful Blooms dies.  I cut large flowers from Terracotta Tile felt and smaller ones from fabric that I backed with interfacing.

I folded each of the flowers in half and in half again, stitching them in place on top of an unfolded, flat flower.  It really only takes a few minutes and I love the volume you can achieve.

Clip closeup
The smaller fabric flower was adhered to a hair clip using a hot glue gun.  I also attached a handmade button to the center.  I die-cut with the Buttoned Up #2 die from our new Coasters and then stamped it with a coordinating stamp from Button Boutique using Berry Sorbet ink.

Floral stamped button
For the felt flower pin, I created a special button by stamping one of the larger Coaster buttons I die-cut earlier with this beautiful pattern from Bitty Background Blocks.  (It is a miniature version of In Bloom!)

Pin closeup
The button was hot glued to the center of the felt flower…

Pin back
and the back glued to a pin back, covered with a circle of additional felt.

Clip card without clip
The button card for the hair clip was SO easy!  I just die cut the Button Card from one of our Coasters and stamped it with the frame using Terracotta Tile ink.  It's all one big image, so it is really just one quick step!

Gingham swatch
The swatch was created by die-cutting Vintage Cream cardstock with the pinked-edge fabric swatch die from the Button Card die collection.  I then was able to easily stamp it with the gingham pattern from Bitty Background Blocks.

Clip card
I cut two slits through the card and clipped the hair clip in place for it's final presentation!

Pin card without pin
The pin card is a bit simpler.  It is stamped with the simple outline frame, followed by the "Vintage Style" heading and the "handmade is best" sentiment at the bottom.

Glue dotting die
You might have noted that I used the hang tag hole die along with the button card this time.  I didn't add it to the Hair Clip card because it would have obstructed the design at the top of the frame stamp, but in this particular case, it worked out perfectly!

I found the easiest way to use it was put THREE glue dots on the back of the tiny die and adhere it directly to the button card die.  Be sure to use three glue dots to avoid shifting.  Then after you die cut you card, you can remove it if you wish so you can use it without the hole again.

Treasured NotionsMy next project is inspired by a BEAUTIFUL book I picked up recently.  It is entitled French General Treasured Notions by Kaari Meng (and quite honestly ALL books from Kaari are amazingly stunning).  It contains beautiful photography of different types of vintage notions and crafts to create with them, including fun button projects.  In fact, I used this book as a bit of a inspiration while I was designing Button Boutique as well.

Always With You Card
This is the project that was directly inspired by the book.  I love warm blue tones paired with cream and linen colors.  So dreamy, peaceful…

Button card without buttons
This time I die-cut the button card from Ocean Tides cardstock, with the hang tag hole portion glue-dotted in place.  I stamped the frame followed by the "Superior Quality" banner at the bottom then finished with the small "Made in USA Papertrey Ink" at the very bottom.  I also added the "25-cents" border at the top.  All of this was stamped in Fresh Snow.

Button card closeup up
I die-cut a pice of muslin fabric with the pinked edge fabric swatch die from the Button Card Collection.  I then stamped the fabric with one of the patterns from Bitty Background Blocks.  Isn't it just stunning!  I know I'll be using this concept a lot!  This swatch was layered over a strip of vintage book print.  Buttons were stitched on top, two die-cut from coasters and covered with patterned paper, the other two are Vintage Cream buttons.

Heart closeup
I die-cut another piece of muslin with the Love Lives Here circle/heart die.  I stamped it with one of the patterns from Bitty Background Blocks using Ocean Tides ink.

I hope you enjoyed what I created today!  Now you're in for a REAL treat!  The Design Team has also created some amazing projects using these new supplies!  Be prepared for the ultimate dose of inspiration!

    Debbie says:

    I love buttons, my Mom had a wonderful old tin of buttons that she kept. She also had old button cards, but I would never want to use them on anything, so these are just the ticket!!

    TammyRN says:

    I’m in love with the button dies, especially after seeing all of the design team samples. Cannot wait to see more of the bitty background blocks. I can already tell I am going to be in trouble this month!

    CrazyCurl says:

    What a fun concept! My daughter would love creating buttons with me.

  • 98
    TrinaR says:

    What a beautiful release – have never seen anything like it out there in ‘cyber craft land’. I am a ‘button person’ from way back and cannot make a card without at least one button. The dies and stamps would be such a wonderful way to create every button colour of the rainbow. Wonderful. Looking forward to the rest of the February releases.

  • 99

    Holy moly! I love buttons, especially old ones still attached to the card, so this set really appeals to me. I can see that this month will have me scrounging under the couch cushions for coins! LOL!

  • 104

    fabulous, i was hoping my dress form die would have more sewing and vintage theme friends! i love the coordination and versatility of the mini backgrounds paired with the pinked fabric die — so much fun is to come!

  • 105
    Colleen says:

    I think PTI is going to make buttons a hot commodity again for crafters with this new set. I can’t wait to get my hands on it, the Bitty Backgrounds, the dies and coaster board. Yummilicious!

  • 106
    Gertine says:

    What a SUPER great idea!! Love the possibility of making buttons that are “flatter” than real ones, but look real. The bitty backgrounds are a lovely addition, which I think I would not only use on the buttons, but on all kinds of diecuts. Can’t wait to see more of this months release

  • 107
    LaceyNB says:

    I really enjoy the old-world charm of most of these projects. I can see these products being used in super moderns ways too.

    I’m SO excited about the buttons! It reminds me of being a child, flipping through my mom’s big sewing basket of button cards. Oh how I wish she were here to crochet me some flowers for the many button cards I will be creating with these awesome set(s)! The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!

    Not to mention how handy these will be when I want to make and mail a card with button accents, minus the cost and damage from the USPS! Definitely a plus!

    Button, button, who’s got the button(s)???? ME come the 15th! LOL! Thanks PTI!

  • 113

    I can’t believe it’s the first of the design team projects for this release and there’s so much packed in to this first day. This button set is so cute.

    MicheyMoo says:

    Oh my giddyness!! This is amazing!! One of my favourite things when I was a wee lass was going through my Mama’s sewing cabinets admiring all the pretty fabrics and gushing over the gorgeous notions that it held. My favourite thing now is to look over the lace scraps and buttons that my Mama gave me recently. They are so vintage and gorgeous and are packaged so similarly to this!! I love it and if I don’t win….then I’m a gonna be buying this immediately upon release. Loving the inspiration you and the DT girlies have revealed today, Nichole. Michey xxx

    What is it about buttons? I love them, I play with them, I enjoy rooting through the bag of PTI buttons when I get them (and squeal in delight when I find that really unique one!).

  • 171
    Hlee says:

    Oh wow! What a great idea and concept! Leave up to the PTI gals to figure it all out for us! It is true that since the felt and flower dies came out, I’ve been creating tons of cute hairpieces. The packaging of them for gifts was always a challenge. Now you’ve made it so simple! I also can’t wait for the button collection. Love how it can be made with coasters so that it’s so much sturdier. Can’t wait for this set!

  • 172
    Brooke says:

    When I saw the first image of the flower pin and clip I actually said “oh Dear God!”. I didn’t twig with your sneak peak that this was going to be a stamp set, I was thinking a new range of more special buttons that would be purchased as a card of 4. How wrong was I?!?! This is an amazing set and concept. Mish is a genius – I always love seeing her sketches too.

    Gabby says:

    The button stamp set and dies are so very neat! I am crazy for buttons and I use them a lot! When my good friend’s Mom passed away, she gave me 100s of vintage buttons from her Mom’scollection. That was 15 yrs ago and I can’t part with them but I often look at and appreciate them, likewise do visitors who see them displayed in my home. The thought of creating my own button cards and fabric swatches … oh, my … makes me swoon! Heehee! šŸ™‚

  • 226

    great new stamp sets and dies, totally i love with all the DT projects too. The coaster board looks fantastic too and i would love to make those little buttons and cover them in glossy or crackle accents. The ideas are endless. Thanks for the opportunity to take part in such a fabby prize karenxxx

Would be so cute! And I’ll bring out my everyday button bits stamp set out again to use my own buttons!!! Thank you for another great post filled with inspiration!!!

    I love the idea that I can create my own buttons! At Christmas our cards were made using “Wreath for all Seasons” stamped on the Tag 1 die with a button on the hole.

    I love this idea. Have always loved buttons since my mom was always sewing something and it was my job to take the buttons off the cards. Memory lane trip for me too. Mom still sews but we are 1100 miles apart now (and I wasn’t the one who moved). Thanks for the chance to win something. And the idea to go play with next after the laundry is done.

    As always, PTI has rocked the house with this stamp set. I love the barrettes! I think it’s so cool how you all break out of the papercrafting mold to use the stamps and dies with all kinds of materials and all kinds of projects. I can’t wait to own these–thanks for the chance to win!

    Renee Lynch says:

    I knew I wanted the background set…
    gingham sold me on it during peeks…
    but I thought I could resist the buttons.
    This taught me to never try and think ahead of ya’ll during release.
    So stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!
    And with Michelle’s vintage touch…
    Now…if you can just get her to go fabric shopping for us too?
