About Me

If you've been studying the new Spring catalog you've probably noticed that there are lots of accessories in there.  So here's a couple of different ones used as something other than card embellishments.  This first picture shows the Designer Build A Brad that is on page 12 in the mini.  There's a card there showing these brads but I used them a little differently.  Here's a necklace and earrings that I made.  It was really easy to get the prongs off the back of the brad.  The crown is from the set called Itty Bitties. 
This next set is made out of the bottle caps that are on page 24.  There's a couple of cards there that use the caps as embellishments.  Here's the necklace and earring set that I made.  The bottle caps are real easy to flatten.  Just run them through your Big Shot without any tabs.  It's best to do one at a time.  The image on the earrings is from the Itty Bitties and the images on the necklace are both from the Collage Curios that is also on page 24 in the mini.  On these I adhered the image and then I coated it with Crystal Effects.  You need to let them dry overnight.  And the image is a little blurry because of the Crystal Effects.  If you don't want the image to smear then you could emboss the image.  And I punched the hole using the 1/16" punch.  It was a little hard to punch so you might need to ask someone for help. 
There are lots of accessories in the Spring catalog and I hope to show you more of these as time goes on.  Some of them are really cool.  And don't forget that right now if you spend $50.00 you get to pick something out of the Sale A Bration mini for free.


  1. These are really nice Lynn Good job

  2. Beautiful Lynn!! What a great idea for the brads and bottle caps. I especially love how beautiful the bottle caps turned out. I don't have the stuff to make them, but will have to get it with my Xmas gift card and try it out for sure. Hope you can bring them for show & tell table Sunday!
