These are the punches that go along with the i-top tool to create the brads.
Check out how Amanda used the punches on her layout below!!
I have a confession to make, I had never used my I top tool before this assignment! I have 3 little ones, and my scrapping time is usually in spurts, and I thought oh, those must take forever to make, I don't have time for that...boy, was I wrong!! The I top tool, is so fun and easy to use, and it makes very sturdy brads! I loved how easy it was to punch them through my paper, no piercer needed ( because again, who has time for that!), and you can make custom brads to suit your needs!!
For my project, I decided to have fun not only with the brad maker, BUT with the i top punches also! I used all 3 sizes, to create a fun background for my project!
I love the fun look of these punches, and it helped me to add some fun pattern and texture to this layout. Then in the "open spots" I added in a mix of my custom i top brads, wood veneer, and rhinestones. I kept the rest of the embellishing to a minimum, just a few pieces layered here and there for even more interest.
Then to make my journaling and title really pop, I adhered a few of my custom brads clustered there, it really helps to draw your eye in!
I have a new love in the i top tool, and it quickly went to the top of my must use list!!! :)
