Challenge #102 week of 9th September 2013

**Don't forget to join in on the 100th Prompt celebrations and link up your layouts based on either the first 99 prompts or one of the WM#100 prompts for a chance to win. We've had lots of great layouts appearing in the Flickr Gallery for our 100th prompt celebration and it would be wonderful to see more. So, check out the 6 WM#100 prompts to see if something appeals or even one of the previous 99 prompts. You have a chance to win one of the two prizes featured in this post (here) for each layout you upload. It keeps the party going so it would be wonderful for you to join in**

We've had a whole lot of prompts recently that have been more about the journalling, theme or direction of your layouts so today I thought we'd go down the product route.

Can I tell you a secret? I've got a new scrap crush. I can't believe I haven't come across her before but thanks to a link to her series over at "A Flair For Buttons" on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, I was delighted to discover the very talented Ashli Oliver.

Have you seen her work? If you like layers, lots of embellishments and plenty of ink splats, then you might find her as appealing as I do.

But the blog series on using flairs is the direction I'd like to go. I want you to be inspired by using flairs/buttons/badges (whatever you like to call them) on your layouts this week.

I can't get enough of them personally and try to use them all the time, while at the same time, hoarding them as I love them so much. Ha ha - I know you understand. Let's see if I can find some examples of where I've used them recently (or not so recently):

You might want to go over to the "No More Floating Flair!" series to check out some very different ways to incorporate them into your project such as journalling, embellishment clusters using them in a border and many more. I especially adore her use of twine wrapped around the flairs (see the detail from her layout here) and used it recently on a smaller scale around enamel dots.

But I can't wait to use it in the same way as she has - around flairs. Maybe this is the week.

So, go create using flair and don't forget to share over at the Flickr Gallery with the tag WM#102. :-)


  1. I just knew you would LOVE Ashli! So creative & artistic. Just reorganized & gave my flair it's own special place.

  2. Oh, aren't you just the sweetest?!?! Thank you for the kind words and the link-ups :) You just made my day!!! And - I tweeted out a link to this post :)
