Design Team Wednesday

Hello it is Nicole sharing my project with you from cold crisp Norway!  

I am originally  from California and  we do have a fall of sorts there but it is nothing like the beautiful fall we have here.  The colors are amazing! I  have taken all kinds of pictures to send to my Grandma so I wanted to make the perfect card to send them in.  Here it is and I do think it is perfect  I used the  newly released leaf brads which you can find  here http://www.eyeletoutlet.com/leaf-brads.html


I am really excited to share my next projext with you!  I had this little package of mini cards that I got from Target for a dollar ast time I was home in California... They were perfect for just adding a brad or punch shape to to dress them in just seconds.  I loved the size because they were great to throw into packages or anywhere you just need a quick note.  Well I used the last one the other day and I was so disappointed... But then a thought crossed my mind... wait I have bags of paper scraps and I have lots of packages of brads where I only have one brad left and I bet I could just make me some new cards.  In no time at all I had 12 mini cards in all kinds of shapes made from scraps and leftovers... It felt so good to use some of my scraps that I have been collecting for way too long.  I have no idea why I didnt think of this before! All the brads I used can be found in the Eyelet Outlet online shop!







Thanks for stopping by and have great day!!!!!
