Are you up for a unique challenge? Can you handle it? I think you can so jump on over to Counterfeit Kit and read up on the embellishment challenge. Basically you choose an embellishment (or in my case since I don't follow directions apparently) a few that you made and focus your project(s) on those items. Here are the embellishments that I made and the two layouts that will sit next to one another in my albums that use the homemade embellishments.
These pictures are from June of last year (yep I skip around a lot when scrapping). C got to feed a giraffe and she was thrilled and still talks about it. She fed the giraffe cookies and alfalfa(?). I made the Summer ABCs using word and word clip art. The clouds are double stamped and pop dotted to give some dimension. The banner with the faux sun I used to journal and as an accent piece and the giraffe alphabet card was a direct copy from the kit that we counterfeited this month. I actually had a great time making my own embellishments since I do not do it often. What about you? Do you make most, some or none of your own embellishments?
