How To Create Your Own Embellishments

Hey there!
Lisa here today to share a tutorial on how to create your own fun embellishments.
I used ScraPerfect's The Best Glue Ever and Transfer Foil along with Paper House Production papers and came up with this layout of my son and I after one of his baseball games:



Because I didn't have a lot of orange and black baseball embellies to go with the papers/ photos, I decided to create my own using star diecuts, The Best Glue Ever and Transfer Foil
I used star diecuts  I previously cut from white cardstock:


I added the Best Glue Ever to the stars and spread a thin layer using a paint brush:


I set these aside to dry to a clear finish:


Once dry, after about 10 minutes, I laid my very well used Transfer Foil on top and rubbed with my finger. Then peeled the diecut off.  Because I had used quite a bit of this Transfer Foil sheet previously, (yeah, this orange is my favorite!) I had to do this several times.


Because I used textured cardstock for my stars, I didn't get complete coverage of the foil, but I love the distressed look of it and was perfect for this sports page:


I used a cut file from the Silhouette store to create my title and backed it with black cardstock. I added a hand cut star and one of the foiled stars:


Here's another star with a baseball sticker added to the center of it:


I added watercolor to my background and added a few layers under my photos along with some stitching:


Here is a side view of my title. Check out all the fun detail the transfer foil added to my title:



I hope I have inspired you to pull out your supplies and make your own embellishments!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!
