The Weekend Guest | Shelley Haganman

The Weekend GuestI’m happy to introduce you to a new Weekend Guest today. This Weekend Guest is special to me, since Shelley is kind of my boss lady. She’s the creative genius and business lady behind A Flair For Buttons. And I couldn’t be more honored to have her on my blog today. Apart from her flair business, Shelley is a busy bee, who’s also a very talented papercrafter. And that is exactly why I asked her to be part of this series. Give her a warm welcome!


Hello everyone! I am so happy to be here to share my project with you as a Weekend Guest on Els Brige blog!

My name is Shelley Haganman and I am from the US. I live in Iowa City, Iowa. It is a college town and home of the University of Iowa and University of Iowa Hospital. I graduated from Nursing School here and have worked at the University for 27 years. By day I am an Operating Room Nurse but in the evenings I scrap! I have been a single mom of three for 20 years. My children are 25, 23, and 21. I have an adult with Autism who lives with me . I have been scrapping for many years and have been on several Design Teams. I currently am on the Maya Road DT. I also started my own business called “A Flair for Buttons” two years ago. I design, create, and make flair buttons that many scrappers use in their scrappy projects and Project Life pages.  I love repurposing things into scrappy projects. I love traveling and photography and those two interests combined make up a lot of my projects that I create. I hope you will enjoy my project!

SCRAPBOOKING IN | The USA (Iowa which is in the Midwest) close to Chicago!

WHERE I FIND INSPIRATION | I LOVE Pinterest! I also love visiting others blogs for new ideas!

WHERE I CREATE | I took over my daughter’s room downstairs in my home that is ALL mine! I love having my own space that I can leave and come back to and not have to put things away.

Today I thought I would share with you one of my favorite things……Instagram photos! I simply LOVE Instagram and the ability to document things as they happen. I use my Instagram pics for many things. I used Blurb to make photobooks. But today I will share how I like to have my instagrams printed and how I use them around my house!

Currently I use Origrami to print my instagram photos. There are a lot of options out there but I really like their products! I mean how cute is this packaging!!!


The first way I like to use my Instagram photos is by putting magnets on the back of them and displaying them on this metal ceiling tile I found at a flea market. It’s so easy to move them around or switch them out when I am ready to do so!


Another way I like to display them is by using flower “frogs”. They come in all shapes and sizes and colors. I just spray paint them if I want them to be a certain color.


And finally I LOVE to use them in making mini albums and other scrappy projects. I used the 5×4 prints in this project. My favorite ones are the square photo prints. This sized worked perfectly with the 5×5 kraft CD sleeves that I used to make the base of my album. The sleeves are great because they can hold more photos or journaling. I used my Bind-it-all to bind this album but metal snap rings would work great too. And since I am the owner of {a flair for buttons} I had to add some flair to my project as well!







I hope you have enjoyed my post about one of my most favorite things! Thanks again for stopping by and thank you so very much Els for having me! Happy creating everyone!

    What an adorable little album and I don’t know why I never thought about sticking my photos in a flower frog! I’m going to have to check out origami because that packaging is adorable!
