My Carl Cutter Story . . .
Halloween . . .

Yes, yet another addiction . . .

A friend (yes, you Gina Hubbard) got me started making my own embellishments.


I got out a few supplies to get me started:




Ha! By the time I finished gathering supplies

I could have gone to a craft store and bought these embellies in the dollar bin.

But that's not the point - right?



Here's what I ended up with:

Desk 3

I'm currently storing these on heavy chipboard

that's leftover from

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

And then stacking them in an old shoe box.





I'm thinking this is a great way to use up scrap paper.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it

and posting on

Hi Nancy, what a fantastic idea! Love how they've turned out, and I agree great for using up scraps and oddments. And much more satisfying than store bought. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #16 XxX

Beautiful embolus, Nancy! I don't think you would find anything this pretty in the dollar bin. LOL Well done.


Nancy, good on for you!!!!!!! I think you did a FABULOUS job with those embellies! Now they are done and you have many to choose from for any project! I wish I would think ahead like that, but I insist on making things difficult for myself! LOL Lovely really! Make it a great Wednesday and.....definitely stick to that story! LOL, Felicia, #27

I'm so glad that somebody else uses shoe boxes and cardboard boxes for storage. They're quite handy and cheap. Your embellishments are lovely! Have a great week!
