Photo Brads with Marcia Dehn-Nix

Today we have designer Marcia Dehn-Nix sharing her talents with us. 
(You'll notice that our Good Dog collection doesn't have to be used just for dogs! :) )

"Field Museum"

Are you all enjoying your summer? I sure am, just got back from a short vacation. Now I have lots of pictures to scrap. I know you all must have lots of pictures too, so I wanted to share a simple layout with big impact. Simple layouts are a great way to keep up with your busy summer. To get big impact, I am using a larger 8' x 12" photo. I wanted you to see how big this dinosaur really is. If you are in the Chicago area, the Field Museum is a must!! The Good Dog collection, with its bone paper, was perfect for my dinosaur layout. I used the i-Top tool to embellish it.

It's easy to transform a photo to a decorative brad to use on your layouts or cards. There are templates you can use to trace and cut, but I find it quicker to flip my punch upside down and center my photo in the punch. 

Then center the punched image on top of the brad top and squeeze.

Tuck the ends in , insert a brad back and squeeze again. Its that simple.
