Embellish It! Part 1

I just took an awesome online scrapping class at It was so amazing and Jayne and her design team ROCKED! I was skeptical of taking a class during the last month of school. I wasn't for sure if I would have the time or energy to participate. Once the class began, I was hooked! The assignments and tid-bits blew me away! This site was the first site I browsed on any given day in May. (and on some days, the only site I browsed that day!) The first five pages took me 5-6 hours to complete. When I do not scrap in a while, it takes time to get my creativity flowing again! It frustrated me, but I persevered and it paid off. Here are a couple of challenges I completed. Tomorrow I will post the last challenge and graduation. Enjoy! (click on the picture for enhancement)


My first challenge involved stickers. The assisnment I choose was to use word stickers in place of my own words in my journaling. This was a first for me!

My second assignmnet was to use old ABC letters in a shape or in the background. (I did this page when the schools shut down for severe weather. I wasn't scared!)

This assignment I had to cover the brads with either paint, stickers or rubons. I used Love,Elsie stickers to cover the large brad on the flower and the put a lady bug on the bard on the exclamation point.

With this assingment, there were many firsts. I needed to use glitter on the page. I sprayed glitter on the flowers. I never thought to use glitter before, so I'm thankful I tried it! It was the first time I used the red felt pattern behind the title and was excited it went well with the page. I also mrked my won journaling lines. I didn't get the look I was going for, but it's good for now.
