I had always thought that I could not work with paper embellishments that I had not created from scratch, but am discovering that I can indeed use them and make them feel like I made them, partly.
The Spellbinders Card of the Month/Kit and Caboodle kits are helping me along with that task. The Card Kits come loaded with premade embellishments that I am actually excited to use!
Check out what I have made so far with the January kit.
The leaves are cut from the gorgeous gold foil cardstock that is included in the kit also.
The Layered Leaves embossing folder is used to spice up the white panel I created by cutting down the cardbases from the kit. I personally prefer a heavy smooth white cardbase.
This sentiment is from Colorful Seasons.
Beautiful Bouquet works very well for the inside of this card also.
Papertrey Ink Bookmark 3 die and a couple of ephemera elements and ribbon from the kit.
That luscious ribbon is from the kit too!
Want to shop for some of the goodies I used? Feel free! When I make a little money, I can buy more stuff to create projects to share with you all.
