What breath of fresh air! Love how she doesn't pre-plan a bunch and just goes with the flow - kinda how I scrap. Looking forward to her rotation in "Seeing Double"

Very refreshing to see projects using our stash, I hope to get rid of some of mine on a layout this weekend.

I really enjoyed it too. It definitely makes sense for me to try to make a dent in some of my supplies in a focused way, and brads would be a good place to start.

I really like her videos too! Love how she just goes with with the flow! And her page was super cute. Gonna get my brads out and play with them more.

I'm working on that challenge right now. So excited to finally use some brads that have been sitting around forever. I love brads, but never know how to use them.

I really enjoyed the video, too! It's a great way to use up some stash which is what I so need to do. I'm looking forward to the series.

It was an awesome video & I used brads on a layout yesterday & again today. Not quite as many as Laura did, though

I loved Laura's video and wish she would do one every week!! Her process flows so nicely and I really like that she didn't have everything so planned out. Her layout is lovely.

Way to go justlulu!!

I liked the tiny brads through the holes of the button. I'm definitely going to try that!

I loved the idea of "splurging" on using those fun brads! It's goofy, I know, but I kind of felt like I was given permission to use the fun stuff all on the same layout if it makes me happy!

Great video!

I think my favorite was when she covered the brad with enamel dots - so clever!

I tried doing a brad layout today and have to admit it was a struggle. But after a lot of toing and froing I did manage to use about a dozen brads. Looking forward to further stash buster ideas

Twinkle - the video is under the 'videos' tab under 'Scrap you Stash.

Loved Laura's video though she mentioned she is just standing in for Amy Heller this week! I hope this wasn't a single appearance then? I love her style and how she explains her flow of thought.

Oh my gosh you guys!!!!!

Way to make a girl feel good!! I'm so glad you guys like it, I had so much fun doing it and It's always nice to know the hard work is appreciated

While I won't be contributing to this series, I will be a regular in the "Seeing Double" series which I'm really excited about!

I do have a personal Youtube channel, link on my blog, but there are only 3 video's so far. It tends to get neglected, but I'm hoping to change that this year

Again, THANK YOU guys so much, this totally made my day!
