Fall leaves…

Hi, hello!  Happy Wednesday!

I’m back today with a layout to share with you, that I made using some handmade embellishments!  I actually presented a class on handmade embellishments last year, so you know it’s a thing I love.

Another thing I love is Peel Off stickers.  I’ve mostly only ever used them on cards, but today I thought I’d color some up, cut them out and use them as embellishments on a layout.

Here’s where I started.  I peeled off the stickers and laid them onto Bristol Smooth cardstock because I planned to use my real brush markers and that paper allows the color to blend before it soaks into the paper.

Then I cut the leaves out with my fine tipped scissors.

(Because of the difficulty of cutting all the white bits out of that bottom leaf spray, it will likely get used somewhere else, on a background of matching white cardstock where the white doesn’t show up so much.)

Oop!  There’s that precious boy again!  Look at that dolly baby!!

Lets focus on the colored leaf embellishments, shall we?  That’s what we’re here for.

I’ve been hoarding those gold word stickers from Crate Paper, doling them out to myself one at a time.  Today “fun” got pulled off the sticker sheet and used!  They’re so pretty though, they can’t just be used on any old page!

Some of the other supplies I used are:

Patterned papers from Webster’s Pages (blue), BoBunny (green), gold polka-dot vellum (maybe Lori remembers?)

Elizabeth Craft Peel Offs

Word stickers from Cosmo Cricket, Authentique, Echo Park (this moment, fave photo)

Chipboard alphabet stickers - Thickers, Elf

gold word and heart stickers - Crate Paper, Oasis

phrase stickers - Teresa Collins, Crate Paper, Basic Grey

Chipboard “Discover” label - Crate Paper

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Ways with embellishments…

Hi, hello!

Recently I taught a class at the store in Winkler for DIY embellishments and we made a dozen different types of embellies and one of the most fun, was when I put out an assortment of die cut papers and bits of things in muffin tins and the students were invited to select pieces and layer them up to create a cute embellishment.

Well, since you couldn’t all be there to attend the class, and since I had a few pieces left over afterwards, I made a variety of embellishments that will now be available in the store for purchase.  They look something like this.

Because of the nature of the supplies, there are no two embellishments exactly alike.  Each package contains a variety of 6 different pieces, small, medium and large.

To give you an idea of how they can be used, I made a couple of cards and a tag.

The cards were made by inking up a portion of a larger background stamp, using black ink and heat embossing it.  Then I layered one of the finished embellishments on top, added some Nuvo drops and just that quickly the card was finished.

Since that was so much fun, I made a tag too.  I stamped the tag first with a polka dot stamp and gold heat embossed that before adhering another embellishment.

These embellishments are perfect for scrapbook pages as well…and I would have loved to show you that as well, but y’know, a day still only has 24 hours in it.  *sad face.  The next thing I want to try though, is making these kinds of layered embellishments with the variety of die cuts that accompany a whole paper line.  Added to chipboard, corrugated cardboard or cork, I’m sure you could create some very cute combinations!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great rest of your day!
