IT'S ALL ABOUT EMBELLIES.

I struggle with embellishments when I'm doing my scrapbooking. Even though I have plenty littered about the craft room, I tend to just use what's in front of me, usually just my papers and printer. Which is pretty much what I did with this layout of my grandson Aidan yesterday (inspired by page 37 in the new Craft Stamper mag). A few rub-ons are always handy too.




Today I was planning another layout and I decided to start using more of my stash. So, I got my 'embellie box' out to see what I had that had been long forgotten. I can't actually remember the last time I opened this RUB. It was like an Aladdin's cave in there! Chipboard, die cuts, Tim Holtz metal, alphabets, felt borders, paint...all sorts of stuff. And, that's not all - I have stuff in various drawers too.


I reckon I've got no excuse now, lol. I'm going to have to work my way through this lot.
