Hi there faithful blog readers! Laura here with my first blog posting for 2011! It seems like everything is new at the beginning of the year! New resolutions and new goals and for this post new ways to use your stash from Creative Charms.
Here is a layout I did the utilizes several Creative Charms products. But what I really want you to focus on is the new way I used the velvet Vintage Poppies. In of themselves these flowers are so pretty and give just the perfect accent to any of your projects. And they have this amazing pearlized center that is just beautiful. But what is so cool is that the pearl center can be removed and you have the ability to use any other brad that you would like! Which is what I did! I took out the pearl brad and inserted a Pearl Gray Vintage Pearled Brad. Now I had a whole new fresh looking accent the coordinated more with my cardstock, other accents and the look and feel I was going for in this project! You can also see that I used another Vintage Pearled Brad as a stand alone with the amazingly beautiful and rich Velvet Ric Rac. I also used a Vintage Jewel as a stand alone accent to give just the right amount of color.
To give my project so extra dimension I grabbed my favorite zap dots by Helmar USA. I love that Helmar has zap dots available in different sizes, shapes and colors. Here I used the small black square ones.
Thanks for stopping by! Now get scrapping!
