Silver & Pewter
Yellow & Gold
In front of my Craft Mate organizers I have a number of jars from Ikea. Each jar contains a single color of buttons. Most of these jars are jammed to the top. I guess that means that I can't buy any more buttons!
Under my desk have a three drawer plastic Sterilte container that holds my other embellishments. On top of the drawers I have a number of old Stampin' Up! clear stamp boxes. These boxes are just perfect for storing embellishments. I have a number of them that contain flowers and one really large one full of felt snowflakes.
The drawers of embellishments are filled with things that just don't fit anywhere else. The first one contains some of my larger HodgePodge hardware.
The second drawer is full of Prima flowers. I never really got into the whole Prima thing so my collection is quite small.
The final drawer is my favorite, it's full of bling!
One of our questions was, what is our favorite embellishment. It's a question that I really don't think I can answer! I love all sorts of embellishments. I love brads, buttons and bling! The one embellishment that I have a ton of, that I really don't like, are eyelets! Why on earth did I buy so many and what the heck am I going to do with them?
As far as tricks and tips for embellishments go, I only have one important rule, less is more! There is no need to add every embellishment you have to any one card! A few well placed embellishments have far more impact than too many.
I hope you have enjoyed this little trip through my embellishments! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog to see how the rest of the Design Team organizes their embellishments. I just know they have some great ideas!
