Outside the Scrapbook

Scrapbook embellishments are VERY appealing to me. The problem is that I am not really a scrapbooker (except for those 2 scrapbooks I’ve promised myself to finish of my girls’ first years…and how old are they now?!).  Thankfully, I’ve found ways to utilize some of these beauties on something besides a page in a book.  I am trying to be in a use-it or lose-it mode these days. 
On a side note, have you heard what Clutter Diet means by a “UFO”? Un-Finished Objects!  Those of you who know me know I’m the queen of those! Another reason to share with you the finished victories!
Back to embellishments… I thought I’d show how I put some of these to work:
I used K&COMPANY stickers (I bought on sale at Michael’s back home) on these frames. Please excuse the short picture. I was too eager to set it out before I found something to hide that spot (European frames and photo sizes are not standard American—while the picture is!).
This frame road in my car for who knows how long before I moved overseas waiting to be returned to JoAnn’s. Not sure why I bought it or wanted to return it or never did. Funny it made it over here, but I’m so glad it did!
This lamp shade has been in need for a while. It was missing it’s edging and had stain spots. I used beige bias tape for the lower edge.  The flowers are brads but I used hot glue to attach them. After I glued them on I felt it needed a little something else. I ended up sewing the buttons on since my first hot glued button was not the look I was after.
I just re-did another lampshade in need. Hopefully I’ll get it posted soon!
I’m sharing this at:
