chickaniddy crafts march pinspiration: hello love

Post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my CAS-ual Fridays post.




Hello, I'm up on the Chickaniddy Crafts blog with some of my fabulous teamies!  Our assignment is called Pinspiration.  THIS is March's pins that we could pick from.

I used this fun photo as my inspiration:


I wanted to incorporate circles into my card design, along with the fun colors:



I am absolutely smitten with the Date Night Collection brads!  Aren't they fun embellishments?

TIP:  You can include household goods into crafting.  Those cork circles are for furniture feet so they don't scratch floors!  Bonus points since they are self-adhesive too!


Supplies:  Paper (DN14CP01; DN25OS12) Brads (DN14EB06)

In an effort to mirror the three cork circles, I added the mini cork bits.

TIP:  When I hole punched the cork circles for the brads, I kept the pop outs and added them to the journal card.

There's quite a bit of white space in the Pinspiration photo so I made sure that I had a border of white around the focus of my card.

So, what do you think?  I had so much fun putting together the paper and embellishments together!  The Date Night Collection has such a wonderful palette of colors, don't you agree?!
