Embellishments for your
Scrapbook page

Embellishments are a vital part of your page and without them your page would look plain. They create the uniqueness of your page and can add mood and pizzazz.

There are an enormous variety of types of accents you can use and it can be quite overwhelming picking them out when you start scrapbooking. However, if you stick to the basic accents you will feel more confident using other types over time.

Some of the best embellishments may already be in your own home, so start looking around in your cupboards to start your collection. If you have sewing supplies, then you can use some ribbons or pieces of fabric.

You don't have to run down to your closest scrapbooking store or spend countless hours internet surfing to find the right addition to your page. You can check out your local department store or even a discount store or craft shop. If you see something you think may suit your page or any future pages, then buy it right away. You never know if you will find it again.

Here are some ideas for decorating your pages:-
