A challenge for your weekend scrapbooking...

It's almost the weekend.  And, if you're anything like me, this is when you get most of your scrapbooking done.  So, here's a little challenge for you.  Try making your own embellishments.  
All of our kits come with some really cute fabrics.  Use part of yours to make a yoyo flower.  Don't know how?  Follow this tutorial.

Want to try your hand at making a rolled flower?  Watch this wonderful tutorial to see how.

 Are you as obsessed with butterflies as I am?  My Martha Stewart punches are my fave tools right now.  Don't have one of those awesome punches?  Simply trace around a chipboard shape and cut it out by hand.  (It's easy, I promise! ;)  To give your punches, die cuts, and cut outs dimension, ink the edges, layer them, and "pop" the top butterfly's wings.  Add gems, buttons, or pearls to finish your new little creations!
Happy crafting!
