Product Shuffle : framed transparencies and push pins

Good morning everyone!

Jocelyne here with another twist on how to use your scrapbook stash in fun new ways.  Today I have a 2 in 1 combo.  I played with Maya Road framed transparencies and some My Mind's Eye push pins.
Transparencies are fun to add over top pictures to give them that Polaroid retro look and these Maya Road ones are super fun considering they have sayings on them. 

I sometimes struggle with the push pins.  I ususally just add a couple under a flower or cluster of embellishment.  Those My Mind's Eye pins are really very pretty and they come in so many different shapes and color.

So the first thing I did was make little flags using the pin as my post.  I have seen some done with toothpicks, I though using some of these pins would be prettier.  Are they not cute!

I did some fussy cutting of  a tag from my Echo Park Capture Life paper and glued it on itself wrapping it around the pin. 

Now for the transparencies.  Like I said previously, we usually use them over pictures.  To mix things up I decided to use them underneath.

It created the base onto which I laid my pictures.  I love how it framed everything without hiding the layers underneath.

Here is another view of the transparency mat and the push pin flag.  I adhered my mini alpha stickers to this flag

Here is the entire layout.

I actually cut the middle transparency in half to make it visible from both side of the picture.  Along with the Echo Park Capture Life collection, I also used some CTMH cardstock, Jillibean Soup's Soup Staple paper. and a My Mind's Eye wooden button.

I hope you liked it and are inspired to look into using your stash in an unconventional way.  If you have any ideas of products you would like to see me use, please let us know in the comments below.  You know I love a challenge!

Have an awesome day!
