Embellishment Love

Today I'm sharing my first page with this month's Scraptastic travel-themed kit. A favorite part of every Scraptastic kit has to be the plethora of embellishments, so carefully chosen to compliment the colors, patterns, and theme. April's kits are no exception, and I can't say enough about those selected for the Let Me Go kit. I used die-cuts, a cork shape, stickers, chalkboard flags, gold glitter enamel dots and exclusive flair and stamps in a few carefully placed clusters on the page below.


Creating interesting clusters are easy when you combine elements with different sizes, textures and shapes.
Here are two more cluster close-ups:


With the assortment of decorative elements in each Scraptastic kit, you can embellish any number of pages. Here's a peek at the page I'll be sharing tomorrow:

  
I see stamping, mist, stitching...and lots of color!

This is so good! Black, cream & yellow works perfectly for this type of layout! Love the embellishments! I must try and see if I can make flags like those!

Is the letters down the bottom part of the paper or left over letter stickers? I want to do that with my older sticker packs that are out of vowels (or almost there) but haven't felt it has been "right" for any page yet. I have to say, I also really love the typewriter.
