Creating Embellishment Clusters

Hi there!  Stephanie here with you today to share a fun way to use embellishment clusters on your layouts.  

I was fortunate enough to play around with the new Cloud 9 collection for CHA and let me tell you....this collection is amazing.  The colors are so bright and vibrant and all of the bits and pieces of the collection are fabulous.  Wood veneer sequins, flair, tags and more.  

Creating embellishment clusters on your projects can help draw the focus to your photo, as well as add "movement" to your layout.  Plus, they are just fun to make! :)

I couldn't get enough of all the embellishments and wanted to use as many as I could on my layout.  To do this, I created small clusters on the top and bottom of my page.  I kept the embellishments on a diagonal to try to add that "movement" across my page. 

Be sure to layer your flatter tags and papers on the bottom first and then build from there.  I like to use hot glue to adhere my wood veneer and transparent shapes and pop dots for flair and smaller tags.  The dimension adds a fun effect to the page.

The transparent tags are great for layering under one another and create a fun look on projects!  

So cluster away and have some fun!!  And count down the days until the Cloud 9 collection is available!!  It's truly amazing!  Until then, you can pick up this beauty in the shop right now!  The January Exclusive Kit is the perfect kit for your Project Life album and layouts!  Quantities are limited so get yours before they are gone!  :)
