Maggie says, "Flair is definitely a favorite product of mine! They are the perfect size for adding a little dimension and fun to a layout or card. I like that they are bigger than a brad but also not huge at the same time. I have had this idea to create a banner our of Flair for awhile and I love how it turned out! It was super easy and quick since the pieces are self adhesive. I simply placed my baker's twine on the page where I wanted the banner to be and then I used Flair to secure it in place. Then I added the large diamond brads on the ends of the banner and wrapped the twine around them before securing them so it looks like the banner is hanging from the brads! As you know, I always love to create a quick card with my scraps while I have everything out. Here I simply punched three circles and then layered a Delight on top of the largest circle. The message on the pinwheel didn't match the message of my card so I simply added a Flair embellishment to the middle and now it works perfectly!"

MahlinSupplies: Bliss Paper (35395) - Hello Sunshine, Cozumel Paper (35420) - Margarita, No Sweat Paper (35378) - Peachy Keen, Skyline Park Paper (35235) - City Park, Beach Bound (70070) - Flair, Good Golly (70068) – Flair, Duchess (89389) – Ribbon, Foreward (43389) - MiniMarks, Damsel (43387) - MiniMarks, Charming (82301) - Mementos, Plastic Rose Brads (85522) – Elements, Metal Rimmed Decorative Tags (85542) – Bits, Stream (61733) - Mixtape, Sunrise Black (53177) - Thickers, Fantastic Limeade (53109) - Thickers

Mahlin explains, "I worked with a lot of different layers and lines of paper for this layout. Even though Margarita, Hello Sunshine, and Peachy Keen might seem very different, the colors sill work amazingly well together. I sewed a grid pattern onto my layout to make the Flair badges and other embellishments stand out more. I added the photo onto a metal rimmed Bits tag."
JunecardSupplies: Blush (71014) - Cardstock, No Sweat Paper (35378) - Peachy Keen, Frolic Paper (35403) - Hello Sunshine, Flamenco Paper (35419) - Margarita, Happy Birthday to You (70065) - Flair, Bow Tie (89398) - Ribbon, Metal Rose Brads (85513) - Elements

"The large Flair badges are perfects as sentiments for cards. I cut out a circle in the middle of my card to fit the badge. Then I added some cut out butterflies, ribbon, and a metal rose brad. Perfect!"

Hope you've enjoyed seeing what you can do with Flair this week! You'll want to come back in a few hours for a BIG special announcement!
