Buttons & Trinkets & Brads.... OH MY!

Who doesn't love embellies?!?
They just seem to polish off a project and make it look finished.
And... most embellishment packs have a good amount in them.

Check out these fun projects,

Peace, Joy and Love

Cut a green tree of Wasabi Dot and then put all the goodies on your tree 
to make it a "Christmas Tree" like this!

First Snow
Carin McDonough

 Tip : To make my 'snow' cardstock, I wet white cardstock and then scrunched it up and 
tore it to the size and shape that I wanted and then dried with a heat gun. I also used the 
punched out pieces from my border to add some random snow!

Taking a second look... here are my FAVES about these projects.
First of all... that tree!!  
I can't even stand how adorable all the embellishments are clustered together like that.
Second.... the sewing!!
Did you notice all the stitching in this layout?  I love it swirled around all over the snow and
the line coming down to sew on the flake...  so clever!
and Third.... The speckled paint!!
I love how Luz flecked paint on her layout, it's perfect for a snowy page!

I hope you guys are inspired to go play with buttons & trinkets & brads...
I know I am!   (now if I can figure out a way to get outta work, ha ha ha)

  9. I love Bo Bunny embellishments however they are really hard to get here in Austria! My LSS is still very small and she can only order 5 packs of each (which she probably wont sell) therefore she only gets the paper packs. Dear Bo Bunny, is there a way around this 5 packs minimum rule?

  10. Love all these project. Bo Bunny rocks!!!!!!
