Handmade Embellishments

I am thrilled to have been asked to craft handmade embellishments for Scrapbook Heaven's kits.  One of my favorite parts of scrapbooking is coming up with and creating my own embellishments for my pages.  It's funny, now that I think of it, I very rarely purchase ready-made accents.  Dies, punches, rhinestones and pearls--now that's a different story.

Here's a look at the embellishments I created for the April kits:
I had a blast putting these together.  I think the mini pinwheels are my favorite!

Some more pics, just because I took them!

Punched word tags:

I knew someday I would find a use for that punch alphabet set.
OK, honestly, I nearly donated it two years ago.  Glad I didn't--sometimes hoarding is good.
