DIY "Life Lesson" Embellishments-"Country Life" Classic Kit

I have made quite a few layouts using my "Country Life" Classic Kit.  So today I decided to use up some of the scraps and leftover bits and pieces to create some unique layered embellishments. I will use the embellishments on future layouts that feature various life lessons.

I started out with these scraps and leftover embellishments from the kit...


Then I grabbed a few of my favorite punches...


Next, I cut some of the "life lesson" sentiments from 2 of the papers...


After cutting the sentiments, I matched some of the scraps to each sentiment.  I tried to use scraps with colors that coordinated, yet popped with the colors on the sentiments...


After I choose the scraps that matched, I started pulling leftover embellishments from the kit to coordinate with each set.  A sticker here, a button there, some lace, a rub on, and the mason jar paperclip completed this step...


Finally, I started working on putting everything together and gluing it into place...


A few close up shots...





I can't wait to use these up on some layouts!!!  

If this inspires you to use some of your scraps to create embellishments, post pictures (or a link) in the comments, I would love to see them!!!

Happy Scrapping!!!
