Can you believe this year is flying by? I thought I would start a week of "green" crafts to start off March. :)
First off today, green embellishments.
I love making my own embellishments. They are easy and fun. Start off by saving anything that inspires you. I save paper bags (when I use them), old maps, correlated cardboard, graph paper, dictionary sheets, vintage music note sheets, sewing patterns. Anything goes + you're doing your part by recycling scraps . lol I love using Hambly overlays & felt too! I have several punches and I simply cut circles, scalloped circles and flower shapes from said paper scraps. Then I layer them using pop up dots. I also like to stitch buttons with embroidery floss, and ink the edges to add an extra vintage touch. You can add bling, brads, fabric, or flowers. Just have fun!A while back I bought some beautiful green embellishments from etsy: I love homemade buttons and crocheted flowers. :) Simply Adorable! Now, it's time for you to create your own. :) If you are not in the mood to create your own, check out etsy.
Oh, something else I would love to share. Albert and I had been working on a big project, time to reveal. We've decided to add another shop-an all printable shop. The best part about this idea is that you can print as many as you need! I love that you can personalize your own stationery too! They make the best gifts!
Albert created the entire website himself *sigh*. Hope you like it. I now introduce to you:
We have been adding more products daily and hope to have a big selection by the end of this month. It's a work in progress *sigh. We will have a scrapbooking tags section real soon!
There is a giveaway going on over at the Blueberry Freckles blog. Feel free to check it out.
