Effortlessly Excellent Eyelet Outlet!

I like the game pieces because they remind me of family time. My family is very competitive when it comes to games. These pieces look like they're from the game, "Sorry" - it got pretty ruthless at my house!! : )

Maybe these could be used for a family game night scrapbook page! My parents have recently started having game night with their friends too - these would be cute on an invite!

Tub Time
These adorable duckies and tubs are great for baby showers and brand new babies. I could see these being used on a "Baby's First Bath" scrapbook page. Speaking of babies, don't new babies just have the best smell in the world?

Congratulations to Tiffany's brother who just had his first child - a sweet baby girl (and congrats to Tiffany for becoming an Aunt!!)!

I could very easily see these used either for Trick or Treat night (if you celebrate Halloween where you live) or for Christmas ("visions of sugar plums dance in their heads...").

The fact that they are glittery reminds me that you can add glitter to any brads as long as you have the right products! Tip: use Tim Holtz's 12 New Distress Stickles to jazz up cards and brads! They coordinate with his ink pads.


I like these Bubble brads because they could also be used for eyes. Use them for a cooking page to show boiling water or for an underwater scene!

You could even use them for buttons on a snowman! Preorder your Snow Flurries & Snowman texture fade embossing folders by Tim Holtz today! These Bubbles would look good in the center of a snowflake or flower too - so many options!

These brads remind me of Stephanie...she LOVES American football. I grew up down the street from the Ohio State campus so I'm familiar with the sport - they even hold little league football games at the park near my house. American football is great, but I adore soccer, personally!

My Aunt Cyndie was the first person to teach me how to make a fish face when I was little : ) I love these brads because of their brightness. The little orange clown fish looks just like Nemo too!

Maybe you want to commemorate a day at the aquarium or a visit to the sea? Want an easy way to insert the brads through the paper? Try the Craft Pick by Tim Holtz!


These are great if you want to add a 3D object to a card. Tilda or Edwin could easily hold one of these Lollipops.

And, of course, if you celebrate Halloween and want to make a trick or treat scene, these would be nice to have falling out of a sack full of candy.

I was definitely a girly-girl growing up, but I loved robots and spaceships too. These would be cute for themed-birthday party invitations or maybe you know someone dressing up as a robot for Halloween? However you choose to use 'em, they sure are cute!
