No More Floating Flair!

Here is a gem of a blog series.
I adore flair - the cute metal badge accents that you see everywhere.
But I confess that I am a hoarder & not a user :~(
Here's the proof!
Technically, they are NOT all flair, 
but I consider any round dimensional accent in the same category.

Well, I am happy to turn you on to a terrific blog series at A Flair for Buttons.
No More Floating Flair by Ashli Oliver will give you 
all the answers for using flair in an integral way.
There is a new episode every two weeks. 

Here is an excerpt from the introduction:
"Hi there! Ashli Oliver (soapHOUSEmama) here with my first post as a DT member at A Flair For Buttons. I am excited to be here and even more excited to share a new mini series that we will be bringing you twice a month!

Let me give you a little background information first. When I brought my first package of scrapbook flair home, I had a little trouble getting those adorable shiny circles on my page. Most of the time, they just seemed to be floating there. In the odd chance that I actually was able to "ground" my flair, it still seemed a bit random. Well, I am pleased to say, that I have long since crossed that bridge! Hooray! In fact, I can hardly scrap without flair these days. And that brings me to our new mini series...

"No More Floating Flair!"
Twice a month, we will take a look at different ways to incorporate flair into your scrapbooking. We will discuss using clusters, handmade embellishments, banners, and more! Also, if you have any questions or a special request, please leave a comment letting us know."

(Here's a look at one of her pages.
Follow those circles of green twine to find the flair!)
 
A Flair for Buttons also has an Etsy shop!
Just in case you haven't hoarded collected enough flair yet :~)

  4. I sometimes stick them on something and end up peeling them right back off! They're so cute but I guess if we use we can buy more right?
