Handmade Embellies

This week at TrailMakers we are making handmade embellies, which is a great way to use up your scraps and keep from spending on the (sometimes expensive) embellishments that go along with the paper.
For my handmade embellies I created snowflakes using 2 different size punches and scrap paper, then pop dotted (pop dots are great!!) a few of them to add dimension to the layout. I also covered 3 chipboard flakes with a snowy glitter mix.

Be sure to checkout the January Kit from the Paper Trail it is full of Echo Park yumminess called Wintertime and it is perfect for SNOW pictures. I used the Blizzard Blue for my background and accented with pieces of the Red Swirls and Falling Snowflakes paper.

Be sure to get your layouts showing your handmade embellies uploaded for a chance at some goodies!!!
