Practical Scrappers Challenge- Brads!

Hi Everyone,

The challenge for this week over at Practical Scrappers is to use brads on your project. Well, I definitely do not have a shortage of these little gems in my stash! I have no idea where they all came from but I really need to make more of an effort to use them. I use the round brads on a regular basis but find it difficult to use the shaped ones.

For this challenge I pulled out some heart brads that have been sitting in my stash for well over a year and have never been used. I used them to create a border along the bottom of my card. Then to add a bit more bling I added some crystal stickles to the top of each one. Very simple and easy.

Paper- SU Whisper White Cardstock, SU Old Olive, Coordinations Pink cardstock (not sure of the name)
Ink- SU Old Olive, Rose Red, CTMH Chocolate
Stamps- CTMH Grown With Love, Studio G for the sentiment
Accessories- SU Scalloped Circle Punch, CM large circle punch, SU Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, Crystal Stickles, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder


  1. Wow, what beautiful card.. I love the tree with the hearts in it..
