i-Top Feature Week - Day 4

Welcome to our final day of our i-Top Feature Week.
We hope that you've been inspired by the creations that our design team has shared with you this past week.

Today we have a few more projects to show you using the fabulous & fun Brad Daddies.
These also come in a variety of sizes (16mm, 22mm, 28mm and 34mm).
These can be used on cards, layouts, flowers, fabric, etc.  The possibilities are endless.

Let's see what our designers created.

BBQ Party

I love the way you can use the I-top to customize brads for any project.  For this layout I wanted to make some brads that went with the BBQ theme of my layout.  I used the medium, large and extra large brad daddies and found images on the patterned paper that would work with each size.  If they had any other images overlapping after I turned them into brads I used white paint on the edges to make them look cleaner.  To add them to my layout I cut out a cool circle background with my Silhouette and filled in the circles with patterned paper and brads.

Supplies: Patterned Paper and Stickers - Imaginisce Endless Summer and Childhood Memories Collection, I-top tool, Medium, Large and Extra Large Brad Daddies, Cardstock – Bazzill Basics, Paint – Craft Smart, Die Cut Machine – Silhouette, Cut File Karla Dudley

 Accordion Mini Album

Brads and buttons are one of the most used scrapbook embellishments, it just adds so much into a project, don't you agree? but what more else if you can create your own that will match your paper and the entire layout you're working on, it's really awesome! Tha's why I say,  I-top tool is a must :) for us scrapbookers/crafters. I created this accordion mini album for my sweet niece and for me flowers seems to be the perfect embellishment for it. I used I-top tool and make my own designed brads and put them in the middle of the flower.

Supplies used: Love You More Collection, I-Top Tool; Paper Punch and Brad Daddies.
Other Supplies: Clear Scraps  Mascils and Accent Paper flowers.

Good Dog Card Kit

I love coordinating products -- it makes creating something so much easier and really takes a lot of the guesswork out of finding the right colors, matching patterns, etc. It's one of the reasons I love using my i-Top and Brad Daddies. I can create perfectly coordinated embellishments from whatever patterned paper I happen to be inspired to use.

I have several friends who are dog lovers and who are also cardmakers. I thought it would be fun to put together a coordinated card kit for them to use to create multiple complimentary cards. 

Using the Good Dog collection and my own stash of twine and card stock, I had many of the right elements, but what the kit really needed was some cute coordinating embellishments. So I made my own using the i-Top punch, the i-Top, and Brad Daddies!

I put all the brads on a card back and placed everything inside a sturdy plastic box. It was enough for my dog loving friend to create 6 cards! The card kit idea will work with any collection, so now I'm off to create some for my surf, treehouse, and birthday-loving friends!

Supplies used:
(patterned paper from Good Dog collection) Imaginisce; Cardstock (various colors) Stampin' Up!; Fibers: (twine) The Twinery; Tools: (i-Top Punch, i-Top, Brad Daddies) Imaginisce; (Heart Punch) Stampin' Up!

The brads are really neat. Other than using them for "brads" I suppose they could be used for temporary pin embellishments in a sweater or a hairpiece. I'm just not able to come up with anything else right now. But I would love to win this tool for obvious reasons!

I would use them for coordinating embellishments like Regina's. Love that idea! I would also use them for buttons in the kids' shirts or pockets - I think it would be a lovely touch and I would use them for my scrapbook layouts.

Every day I am blown away by the versatility of this wonderful product. I love the coordinating brads for embellishments or flower centers.

I would like to cover them with material and make scrapbook pages.

Amy Martin said...

These are adorable projects. I love the idea of using the brads accessories with flowers. And then use them on my layouts and cards. Perfect idea. That is the first thing I would create with them.

I love the card kit idea! I could see making all sorts of brads for my cards. I love to have everything one theme and this would be perfect way to have control on doing that every time.
