Sometimes when I'm putting together a page, it's hard to find just the right embellishment in just the right color. That's why I love making my own embellishments with my Slice. On this layout, of my son's first time at the beach, I used my slice in a number of different ways.
First, I cut two surf boards from patterned paper. I layered white cardstock behind them and then I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine to give them a little bit of personality. I even added a metallic star brad on one of the boards, just to tie it in to the other metallic elements on the page.
Second, I made this fun little wooden sign to coordinate with my layout. I cut the sign from two different papers, then cut off the boards from teh dark paper, added rub-ons and then attached each board to the lighter sign with adhesive foam squares.
Finally, I wanted to add the "beach" die-cut to my page as well, and I wanted to tie it in with the metallic flowers in the corners, so I added gold glitter to the entire piece. With the Slice, it's easy to make your own embellishments to coordinate with any paper line, any photos, any theme!
