How to Make Fabric Feather Embellishments

 Do you like to create your own embellishments? I love to but I don't often take the time to do so. Recently, I did take the time to create my own fabric feather embellishments. I used the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine and the birds of a feather die. I had so much fun creating them I created WAY too many of them. (I've added the extra feathers to my stash so watch for more projects with these cute little feathers.) 

 All you'll need to create these embellishments is a Platinum 6 die cut machinewhite fun foam, fabric, and the birds of a feather die and my sewing machine.
After I created the embellishments I added them to a scrapbook layout. You can see this entire layout come together with the feather embellishments on my YouTube channel:
I LOVE how this layout (with handmade embellishments) came together.
If you haven't done so before, you should try making your own embellishments. Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you again soon :)

How to Make a Fall themed Mini Album

 Hey friends, I know it sounds cliché but I can't believe it's November already. As much as I love November I do get a little bit sad because November means snow will be flying here in Idaho anytime. Ugh!! I don't love winter. I'm hanging on to the last few days of Fall. The other day we went to help my brother and his little family with some yard work. It was a beautiful Fall day. (affiliate links are used in this post.) I was kicking myself for not bringing my DSLR camera. Not having my big camera with me didn't stop me from taking photos though. I have the iphone 6s plus. I LOVE the camera on my phone. It takes great photos!

I took several photos of the kids playing in the leaves, climbing the apple trees, and just playing. I printed several of these photos to create a mini album. As you know, I love tags so I decided to create a tag mini album with the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine and the "Tag you're it" die.

If you'd like to see this entire album, I created a YouTube video showing how this entire album came together. I also show you how to use the Platinum 6 machine :)

 I love this album. My kids love it too. It's already been packed all over the house and had many little fingers pointing at the photos and grinning as they remember that fun evening.
