FLAIR! That one word pretty much sums it up, doesn't it? I mean, really... who doesn't love a little flair in their life? Well, you are in luck as that is the current theme over at Paper Issues. And, you have just landed at the last stop along the way in our Hop.

Thanks to Shelly at A Flair For Buttons, I had some awesome little pieces to play with You need some of this awesomeness too... and you can get it in her Etsy Shop HERE. And, if that wasn't cool enough, you can use the code ILOVEPAPERISSUES for 10% off. Whooo Hoooo! Now, I can't wait to get started and play with this goodness... Let's Scrap!

I have my fabulous flair and 3 little Instagrams printed off:

I like the idea of a white background, but I want some texture and dimension. A few strips should do the trick:
 Ah yes... I like that!
 How about some messy stitching?
YAY! Fun!
 Now a bit of fussy cutting...
 And some pretty paper tucked around...
Time for twine! At the risk of getting too conceptual... I am envisioning a mass of threads that appear to be intertwined and connecting the Instagrams. Get it? They are all connected, but floating out there in cyber land? Come on... go with me here :)
 Some contrast is in order:
 And a little washi never hurts:
 Fussy cut flowers getting tucked all around:
 TIme to work that flair!
 Each cluster gets it's own badge...
 Perhaps some little arrow chevron thingies will be a fun addition?
And for the title...
I have been having so much fun using Instagram to share my crafty shenanigans. Are you on Instagram? I would love to connect with you! I am soapHOUSEmama over there :)
A bit of the usual finishing touches and TA DA!
 My Crafty Grams with a bit of flair!
This layout would have not been the same without that fabulous flair. Wouldn't you agree?
