It's a Blue Jeans Kind of Day!

Remember I attended the SU Convention in July? Well, I came home with at least a year's worth of ideas....and this was one of them! I landed in Salt Lake City about 4:30 and by 6:00 I was in the Convention center...things were in full swing! That first night, there were a lot of demonstrations and this little card is from one of them.

See the blue jeans? They were created by simply folding a piece of our new Denim Jean Ribbon in half and adding a new little Mini Brads....OK, we've had "Mini" Brads for a few years, but now all of those are simply called Brads.....they are 3/16" in diameter and come in a lot of different fabulous, coordinating colors. I use them all the time...they are definitely one of my very favorite accessories!.....LOVE them!

Well, these are the NEW Mini Brads (Item #122941 @ $5.50 for 100; Page 199)....and they are truly MINI!! At only 1/8", they are are just too stinkin' cute and so easy to use. The "legs" are easy to manipulate and bend in different directions, which was needed for these blue jeans. As you can see, the "jeans" are hanging on a clothes line (created with some White Baker's Twine) and those fun, new Mini Clothespins (Item #122042 @ $2.95 for 24). The background on this card was created with the classic Lovely as a happy that set is still in the catalog! It's such a GREAT set for so many things!  Think Christmas, masculine, birthday.........

This was one of my favorite ideas from Convention (although there were lots of favorites!) simple, but so fun and creative! Gotta love that! So, last week when a few of us demonstrators got together, those of us who attended Convention gave a little demo on some of the ideas and tips we saw. This was just one of my "shares." So, now, I just wanted to share this fun little idea with you!

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Early Espresso
CS: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Misc: Blue Jean Denim Ribbon, Mini Brads, Mini Clothes Pins, Mini Glue Dots, White Baker's Twine, Crop-a-Dile (for making the holes for the "clothes line"), Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
