Update: Shirley's blog is Xashee's Corner
So for today's freebies I have Set #5 of my Vintage Button Collection. This will probably be the last set of buttons because most of the others in the collection are just too plain to bother with. There are 24 buttons in this set, and I think there may be a couple of duplicates from earlier sets but the lighting is different so they do appear brighter than previous ones. But for the most part they are all new.

And I also have a set of seed bead layer styles for PS. They were inspired by a suggestion from csuramsrule on the ADSDesigners forum. She was looking for a microbead layer style and I figured I could do that if I had a good stock photo to work with. I looked all over the net but couldn't find one that would make a good pattern for the style. Sooooo, I went out to Wally World and plunked down $1.97 for a pack of beads to photograph myself.... here's the original photo:I cropped the little gold beads on the right and created a seamless pattern (or as close as I could get, still need to work on my clone stamp skills) to use for the layer styles. Then shortly after that, DH dumped them all over the carpet! LOL. He did vacuum them up though. There are 7 colors in this set and one is grey so you can recolor if you like.
Here's a quick example of how it looks when I applied the style to a custom shape supplied in PS. Cool eh? No mandatory love today but feel free to thank me if you have the time!
