(Raising hand) My name is Louise and I'm an Embellishment-holic. I must confess I bought every single colour of brad just before SU! changed their colours and I've been holding onto them because they are retired and I can't get them anymore! Argh! But I also can't use retired products in my workshops or on swap cards, so they just sit there. I finally gave myself a stern talking too while starting the BIG SPRING (-ahem, it is Summer) CLEAN a couple of weeks ago and decided I'd use up the brads - even if it means using them ALL up!
Mind you, I haven't finished the spring clean yet; it sort of got sidetracked with all the back-to-school palaver, and I haven't gotten back to it yet. Ooops. I was just so pleased to have my crafting mojo back I just went with it.
Anyway, here is a double page 12 x 12 layout I did of our holiday to Sydney last year. What better way to use lots of colours than a layout about Luna Park?
|Stamps: Party This Way Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red markers|
Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Other: Piercing Tool, brads, Big Shot, Timeless Type (? I think) Alpha dies, white gel pen
You'll no doubt be pleased to hear I still have lots of retired brads yet. Which should tell you how many I had to start with, becuse I used a lot in this layout! Sorry about the photos which were taken after I'd put them in their plastic sleeves.
