Flair Week!

Screen shot 2011-06-18 at 9.27.24 AM These fashionable accessories have been decorating clothing for decades and now we've outfitted them for the scrapbook! With adhesive backs instead of pins, these badges will stick to practically any surface!
Screen shot 2011-06-18 at 9.37.22 AM This week our design team will share some clever ways of using this versatile product. Starting with Melanie Louette and Michelle Lanning:

Melanie Supplies: Big Pine Creek Paper (35369) - Campy Trails, Decorative Tags (85534) - Bits, Pine Borders (53167) - Thickers, Mediterranean Meadow (53165) - Thickers, Hot Dog (89397) - Ribbon, Fishing (70067) - Flair, Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That

Melanie shares, "Both of my sons are Boy Scouts, and as soon as I saw the Campy Trails line, I knew it would be perfect for the many photos I have of them from various Scouting events throughout the years. I really love it. The new big Flair badges are adorable and I used this one here to accent the photo of my son all decked out in his uniform."
Early bird badge (1 of 1) Supplies: Early Bird (70066) - Flair; Other: Felt, embroidery floss

"My son is definitely NOT an early riser... it is a constant battle to get him out of bed for school! When I saw the ‘early bird’ badge, I thought it would make a cute embellishment for his backpack. I hot glued it to a felt circle, and then blanket stitched it onto his school backpack as encouragement for him to be on time in the mornings."

Swell card (1 of 1) Supplies: 8 ½ x 11 White (71273) - AC Cardstock, My Darling Paper (35390) - Peachy Keen, Thing of Beauty Paper (35370) - Peachy Keen, Gee Golly (42192) - Remarks, Good Golly (70068) - Flair, Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That, Dimensional Dots (61709) - This to That

"I think Flair is one of the most versatile products that AC makes. It’s a great go-to embellishment when you’re missing something on a layout, and a perfect small accent for cards. For my card here, I punched circles from the ‘My Darling’ paper, adhered the Flair to the circles, and lined them up above my sticker sentiment, which I pop dotted to add the same height as the Flair. Really easy and  quick and they make a card look so polished."


Supplies: Tango Paper (35422) - Margarita, Pico De Gallo Paper (35426) - Margarita, Beach Bound (70070) - Flair, Long Variety Tags(85553) - Bits, Antonio (42196) - Remarks, Macaw Taffy (53189) - Thickers, White (71081) - Cardstock

Michelle exclaims, "This Margarita line screams nothing but fun to me! It goes perfectly with this favorite photo I have of my daughter. I didn't want to break up those wonderful stripes too much so I decided to continue the pattern with cut apart pieces at the top. I used them more as 'flags' to give the layout more dimension."

Acmuchasgraciascard Supplies: White (71081) - Cardstock, Guacamole Paper (35437) - Margarita, Cha-Cha Paper (35428)- Margarita, Beach Bound (70070) - Flair, Summertime (42197) - Remarks, Paradise (42198) - Remarks, Maria (59146) - Clear Stamps, Powder (59505) - Pigment Ink, Macaw Taffy (53189) - Thickers

"I decided to go with the Gracias Flair and make a thank you card. For interest I layered them and popped them up
with dimensional adhesive. This is definitely a fun card and can't wait to send it someone!"

??Guess what's coming in a few hours? Our weekly giveaway! Then tomorrow Flair week continues with a couple more inspirational projects.
