Product Spotlight : Brads

Sea Watch | Nicole Samuels 

I’ve always had a thing for BasicGrey brads.  They come is such gorgeous colors and the fabric ones especially have the most beautiful and inspiring designs.  I like to really let them stand out on my pages…they’re too pretty to just use as a functional fastener!

There’s so many ways to do this but one of my favorite techniques is to incorporate them into the title somehow.  For this layout I decided to make my own “a” for the word “sea” by using the lovely fish design brad as the circle part of the letter and then add a die cut “arm” to finish it off.  Stitching some orange floss in circles around the brad made it stand out even more.

So think outside the brad…er, box… and come up with some new ways to let those brads shine!

  1. I absolutely love this layout! Love the large stitches that create the border in the centre of the layout – stitching made easy! Thank you for such a fantastic idea!!!

  2. The next time I read a blog, I am hoping that it doesnt disappoint me about that one.
    I mean, It was my solution to read, in spite
    of this I personally thought youd have some thing intriguing to convey.
    All I hear can be a bunch of whining about something
    someone to could fix in the event you werent
    too busy searching for attention.

  3. Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My
    site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin
    that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thanks!

  4. fantastic points altogether, you simply received a new reader.
    What may you suggest in regards to your post that you just made some days ago?
    Any certain?

  5. I tend not to drop a leave a response, however after reading a
    bunch of remarks on this page Product Spotlight : Brads
    | BasicGrey Blog. I do have a couple of questions for you if
    it’s okay. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of
    the comments come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I
    would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list of all of your social community sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

  6. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a
    very well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful
    info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely return.

  7. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading very slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?

    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
