Focus on....Brads!

Bo Bunny has such an amazing selection of brads to coordinate with their beautiful paper collections.  Jewelled, glittery, name it, they have it!  They can be used for anything from bloom centers to decorative elements.  Check out the innovative way Tara used her brads on her gorgeous layout.  She removed the decorative stickers from a few of her brads to create the spray of embellishments along the right side of her page, then re-used the decorative stickers on other parts of her page...

The sparkly brads add a unique and beautiful center to the snow flake chipboard elements.

Next up, let's take a look at how Juliana used brads on her layout.  She used them to hold the chipboard embellishments in place and as the center for the chipboard flowers.  She also wrapped the tulle around them to help hold it in place.
