DIY Embellishments by Yvette!

Happy New Year, My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  For today layout I decided to use the flowers from the Jillibean Soup stamp sets to create some DIY embellishments.

I started by collecting all of my supplies...white cardstock, scissors, ink pads etc. 

Next, I stamped the flower and leaf images a few times onto a piece of white cardstock using a few different colors.

Once everything was stamped I took one of my favorite craft scissors and started fussy cutting all of the stamps images, making sure to leave a white border around the outside.      

I then started building a series of layers using the gorgeous patterned papers from the *Welcome Home* collection, along with some cardstock. Below you will find a few close-ups photos showing you the layering process.

I started playing around with the placement of my photos and came up with the idea of creating a pocket.  I love the added texture and interest this create, as will as a place to hold my photos.

On the lower left side of the pocket I created a cluster with the stamped flowers along with a *Welcome Home* chipboard piece and a wood veneer from Jillibean Soup (included in this month's main kit).

I used some of the Alphabet foam stickers to create a title and added a few more stamped flowers to the top right and left area of my title.  

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial and got you inspired to create your own embellishments using your stamp sets.

Thank you of stopping by :) Yvette xx
