For me, it's paper flowers. I buy them over and over and over again. If layout doesn't look quite right - BAM! - a flower slapped down and it's finished. Haha.
What's your go-to embellishment?

It depends on if the primary subject of the layout is male or female, but it's either stars or flowers. Although with stars I tend to stamp the back of pattern paper, then cut out the star. With flowers I tend to either hand make a flower several different ways or reach into an extensive collection of them.

washi, flair, and any kind of OA die cut! lol It's a rare page that I don't have at least two of these things included.
|Posted: 10/11/2012 9:51:04 PM|
Due to the fact that 95% of my pages are masculine, it is a tie between buttons and brads. I still, however, must have 185 million flowers that I can't seem to stop buying.
Now I need to go find out what enamel dots are. I guess I can imagine what they are, but I haven't been shopping in a LONG time. My stuff has been packed up for over a year due to a move. I wonder what else is new out there! (I finally get to unpack in a few weeks - yay!)
