Hi everyone Laurel here. I love the new flair pins that coordinate with the collections. The size of them allow for a great focal point on any project. I decided to combine them with some of the journaling cards in the kits to create some cards to show how the products are so versatile and go beyond Project LifeⓇ and Layouts.
Supplies:Now & Then -Dorothy: 6 X 6 pad,Lovely Day Flair Pins, Lovely Day Enamel Shapes,Pretty Brads,3 X 4 cards,Pretty Label Stickers,Celebrate Buttons; Now & Then- Izzy: Smile Flair; Now & Then-Milo: 6 X 6 Pad,Documented Buttons, Documented Chipboard, Documented Alpha/Tiny Words; Cupid’s Arrow: Enamel Dots
To create all four of the cards I have mixed and matched Now & Then Dorothy and Milo collections. On all of the cards I have adhered the Flair pins with some foam squares.
First up is this fun card that I thought would be a good congratulations card for a number of occasions. I die cut the letters from some Milo pattern paper and used the negative piece. I then embellished the word with one of the chipboard stars and a word from the letter stickers. Finally the arrow is an enamel arrow from the Cupid’s Arrow collection.
Next is this fun card to give to a significant other as a just because card. Don’t we all need these once in awhile. I love to accent my projects with stitching and in this case I used stitching to highlight the phrase on the journaling card.
Another fun card for a loved one. In this case I have adhered one of the enamel hearts from the Now & Then Dorothy collection right onto the Flair Pin, stitched under the phrase on the sticker and finally stapled on the die cut arrow.
Finally, a bit of a twist on the number three. I created a ‘baby makes 3’ card and once again, have adhered an enamel heart right onto the Flair Pin.
I hope that I have given you some ideas of ways you can use the Flair Pins on your projects.
