    OK, so Krissy often puts beautiful stick pins in our kits (recently some gorgeous Pelaloo sets in a few kits)… but how do you incorporate these into your designs? Are stick pins a go-to item in your stash? Personally, I struggle with using these gorgeous embellishments. Post your examples here!

      I love using stick pins. I usually put them in flower clusters or holding a coer down. I personally don't like the Petaloo and Prima ones. Guess, I'm spoiled because I make my own and find the others quality disappointing. I do really like the Maya Road Pearl ones she usually puts in the kits.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          I love them, but keep forgetting that I have them to use. Maybe I need to move them closer to my work table.

          I love using stick pins! I usually use them in flower clusters, like Angelica showed, but I also like to stick the smaller ones in doilies. Her I used some of the pearl ones that we got in a kit. I have also done this with oate chippie frames.

                I have some pretty stick pins that Angelica sent me for a rak but I always forget to use them and when I do remember I have them I'm never quite sure where to put them. I will have to try and use them in the flower clusters like you've done Angelica. All of the samples are so pretty!

                  I use stickpins from time to time and most always in flower clusters. Like Kim I forget I have them so I need to put them in plain sight so I remember them. Here's a layout I used a stickpin.

                    I'm going to echo Kim:
                    I keep on forgetting to use them. Or sometimes, I just don't know what to do with them.
                    I do know that I should use them much more often; they make such a beautiful embellishment.

                      I started making a point to use them but I have to echo Kim…Ang…You are the stick pin queen honey. You are who I stalk when I am looking for stick pin inspiration. LOL

                      I love stick pins. I got hooked on making them last year. I have my eye on the new Spellbinders hat pins.

                      Ang, girl you are the stick pin queen.

                        I have bought a couple from Angelica's etsy site (she makes the most beautiful stick pins and butterflies!), but I haven't used them yet. I'm not sure why I haven't used them – it's like I'm hoarding them!

                          We all have the hoarding issues Lisa! I'm still hoarding some of Angelica's butterflies too.
