Embellishments You Won't Find in the Store

When I was cropping yesterday, I created some embellishments for my pages. I thought I'd share them with you!

The first one was created with die-cuts and flowers. I cut two flowers with my Slice "Think Pink" cartridge, and I layered them with Bazzill flowers. The order is diecut, flower, die-cut, flower, and button. So easy! This embellsihments is aobut 4" wide.

The next paper flower was created from a a flower in my Noteworthy Slice cartridge. Two different papers from Paper Loft and layering made this sweet 3" embellishment.

I love creating my own pieces for a page. Not only are they unique, but they exactly match the layout.
Try this sometime with whatever die-cutting machine or tool you have. Let me know how it turns out!

Brenda, these are perfect! This is such a great tip. I'm so glad you shared it with us. I always forget to look for the hidden potential in my supplies. I'm going to try this for sure! Thanks!
