Are you like me and when you need a blue or pink or neutral colored embellishment you never seem to have one!! Well I had this problem this week and it was very annoying! I have decided to overcome this problem by buying/making my flowers ribbons etc white and then coloring them myself with my inks, paints, chalks Glimmermists etc!! We don’t have a LSS that I can just run down to when I need something!!
I am sure in the long run it will be better for my budget and much easier to scrap!! I started making some more of my “Vintage Ruffle Flowers” at my sisters last weekend and I sat and made a jar full to keep me going for a while!! I made some ruffled and some just lolly pops layered!
I have a tutorial above in my blog header if you would like to make some yourself!! they are so much fun to make and then even more fun to color and use!!

As you know from a previous post I did an overhaul of my scrap space! I am having lots of fun creating in it but there was a problem I was trying to figure out! How to have all my supplies close by and organised??
Well, blog hopping I found a post by a clever scraper who has used clear shoe boxes to store her embellishments in!! Couldn’t go past this one as I knew they would fit neatly on this shelf unit!! I bought a pack of 10 from Store in Ballarat and then I turned my shelf unit around so I don’t even have to get up to find things!!!
I have my embellishment sorted by color and a bin for masks and stencils, chippy and alphas!! I just used some alpha stamps to make the labels, and I can also see through them!! I can even fit a few other things I use a lot like my Cuttlebug, Scrap bin, etc!!
I hope this may help you organise your supplies! 🙂
