Glitter Girl Adventure 127: The Handmade Implementation

scrapbooking with handmade embellishments - Glitter Girl video @ shimelle.com

This week Glitter Girl sets off on a quest with two purposes: to turn her paper scraps into unique embellishments and then to make them work on a page with her favourite products. The question was posed by Tori Bissell, a scrapbooker with her own YouTube channel, who loves making her own embellishments from small scraps of paper she stores in a cookie tin. I love this both because a cookie tin means she is far more controlled with the amount of paper scraps she has left (mine take up an entire basket) and it makes me hungry (mmm cookies).

Cookies aside, Glitter Girl delved into the scraps and used stamps, scissors, and punches to create the embellishments on this selfie page, but there are store-bought supplies in the mix too: enamel hearts, stickers, and a transparency sheet in addition to all the patterned paper. Come along for the adventure, won’t you?

It’s a lot of embellishment. It was very much a more-is-more feel to the workflow, but if that much embellishment puts you a little on edge, there are a few things to consider. First, I think you can add as much or as little as you like as long as you enjoy making it! Second, I really like a mix of very embellished pages in my album alongside pages that are very simple and 12×12 photo prints. I love that mix together and I feel it makes me look at everything with a closer eye when I flip from page to page in the book. (The book in scrapbook is so important to me that it’s very difficult for me to break it down to one page at a time, actually!) And third, if all else fails remember you are in control of your pages and you can learn by your reaction that you don’t want that much embellishment on your page! It’s definitely easier and cheaper to learn that lesson by watching rather than doing. Anyway, I love a little more is more when I’m in a paper groove.

    I would love to see how you use a full floral 12 × 12 paper as a background page. I have so many pretty floral papers but no idea how to use them other than cutting them out as individual flowers. Thanks :)

  2. Karij Says:

    love this adventure. But just now looked at a class from Kathy Orta (paperphenomenon) who made a project with your star shine collection. love it

  3. BunnyD Says:

    I love this layout Shimelle! I make my own embellishments also as the handmade process of scrapbooking is what drew me to it. I rarely buy pre made elements. Mostly products to make things with. Patterned paper and cardstock is a necessity tho! I have collected lots of ribbon in the past. Is there some way to use it on scrapbook pages?

  4. Mary Says:

    love those viewfinder cards/discs
    lovely page altogether and does justice to the photo

    I really like that you used the tulle on your l/o; I need to get some! And once again, you made everything look great together. Also, Charlie above had a great idea: how can we use all those beautiful floral papers that we have? Thanks Glitter Girl.

  6. Gab Says:

    Just love this page – I really need to get out my stamps and scissors and make more of my own embellishments! And so lovely that your grandma gets to know WB!

  7. Pam C Says:

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Natalie (QSOgirl) Says:

    Gah! I love this. I loved watching your process. I love the color scheme. I love the tulle (total lightbulb moment!!) I am so envious of you ability to put so many patterns together in a way that looks absolutely cohesive in the end. I love the thread and how it actually has significance. and I LOVE the little clip of Wonder Boy at the end :)

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
