Happy Monday! Vivian here with a use-up-your-brads challenge. The last seven product lines released by October Afternoon have included brads. I don't know about the rest of you, but I still have lots of them left! I find myself using one here or three there, but never a whole bunch at one time. Enter today's challenge: use ten or more brads on one project.
With Valentine's Day coming up, I decided to interpret this inspiration piece pretty literally, using brads from the Farm Girl, Make It Merry, Midway, Woodland Park, and 9 to 5 lines, along with patterned paper and stickers from the Farm Girl line. Note: I got two dozen brads on there!
Great minds think alike, as while I had shared the ten-or-more brad challenge with Roree, I did not share my inspiration piece and yet this is what Roree came up with:
I love all of the details on Roree's card, from the chevrons to the two different types of stitching to that amazing cluster of embellishments that form the heart. In fact, let's get a closer look at the heart:
Roree had this to say, "I used a mix of collections: Farm Girl, Witch Hazel, Woodland Park, Cakewalk, and 9 to 5. I love that the pieces from one collection can work so well with pieces of the other collections." I couldn't agree more!
So...now that we've given you a two-for-one today with both a use-up-your-brads challenge and an inspiration piece, what will you do with one or both of these? Please share your creations with us in our October Afternoon Flickr gallery.
