What type do you make and do you make them as you need them or ahead of time? From the other thread it seems some of you make them ahead of time.

I would love to hear and maybe even see samples of what you make. I think it might be nice to do some of these to have ready for layouts.

I don't make anything without a layout in mind but make my own titles and occasionally another die cut but that is about it. I would like to add a little more to my layouts and would love some ideas.

Thanks

I make my own flowers, washi tape and some brads. I make the brads by heating some split pins and dipping them in coloured embossing powder and heating again and dipping them in glitter if I want sparkle. Thee are different ways to make flowers.
I also make things like=clock faces etc. I do a lot of toppers on my Cameo.
I started doing them in advance but now do them to match my project.
I made tutorials for some of these on my blog.

Here is a old thread about embellishments that I have bookmarked.

I'd also love to see some more ideas. @ Cariad 12000, I can't see your blog...

I make them as I am making the layout or after using the scraps of paper from the layout. I generally make "paper" embellishments, flowers, stars, hearts, arrows, brackets, etc., all generally layered too. I can make so many things with my Cameo, I just hate to buy them anymore!

Sometimes I will fussy cut designs from matching pp

I can't wait to get the chipboard from silhouette. I will be making more of my own embellies definitely. It will make it so much easier to get embellishments made with some substance to them. Right now I have made my own poloroid frames, titles, doilies, flowers, and all manner of goodies from my cameo. I have also crocheted hearts and will be doing some flowers to which I can add pearls or gems to make them even more blingy.

I do both - buy and make my own. Depends on the project, my mood, the collection, etc.

I make my own washi tape: DIY Washi Tape.

I both pre-make it (like in the video), and make it for a specific project. I am more likely to use homemade tapes if they're already done, though. I just choose colors and patterns for the tapes that match my style and supplies.

I also make my own doilies and banners with dies. I also use lollipop sticks to make my own flags. I make my own tags and journal cards with stamps and inks.

Right now I'm experimenting with making my own glitter tapes & wood veneer shapes.

It's fun for me to play around with supplies and get messy!

I do both - I make them for a specific layout (I shared some on my blog today!) and I'll make them just to have. They are good to have around -- in fact, making extra embellishments is a great way to use up scraps! Your pre-made ones will not always go with a layout but more often than not, I find a way to make them work.

Here's a few posts on my blog about making your own embellishments:

layered butterflies - from today

stacked embellishments

making embellishments with ephemera

heart punch flowers

I use half made by me and half purchased. I make the flowers, paper piecing, letters as I need them.

I love making rosettes with my Martha Stewart scoreboard. I typically do not make them ahead of time since I prefer to make them specifically for a layout or card so they coordinate. I also like to layer punches and top them off with buttons or jewels to create embellishments.

Here are some samples:
layered flower
rosette
rosette with glitter
rosettes and cork embellishment
layered flowers and embellishment made with punches

If I'm happy with it, I will definitely share! So far I've just been feeding my trash can, but that's how it goes sometimes. Good thing I like to make a mess!

In my case, it takes lots of trash can feeding before the "art part" gets started At least the mess-making is good fun.

I use vintage book pages or printed papers & punch circles and run them through my sewing machine & make buntings/banners. I will make several feet at a time & hang them in my scrapbook room, so I can just cut off what I need as I am working on layouts.

If I have pieces of vellum left over, I will use my speech bubble, arrows or photo corner punches & just collect those pieces into a bowl on my work space. I like to have a little bowl of these kinds of things, to dig through when I need some extra pieces for a layout.
