From the funniest of places..

..can I find scrapping stash!

I had a small online shopping spree the other day and was really excited when the items arrived. I was even more excited when I saw the fab packaging that came with the items- there were embellishments galore! We often chat at crops about using clothing tags etc as embellishments and joke about only buying an item for the scrapping potential so imagine how I felt when I saw this fabric tape measure: I love this peg tag:

Living the good life tag:

They would have matched perfectly with some papers that I've had in my kits recently such as the Modern Homemaker line from October Afternoon.

Such a shame that for various reasons, the items all went back to the shop. :(

I'd love to know what unusal things you make embellishments out of- go on, inspire me!


  1. lOVE that fabric tape. I think I get a lot of embellishments from clothes too. I do admit to buying Caitlin some pjs in the next sale as it came with pink stitched ribbon and a purple fabric die cut bow. The pjs wernt too bad either. lol. I also love christmas as you can get some great stuff from crackers. I had to fight with the children this year to get a large pink paper clip. lol

  2. Those are awesome Lou! Sorry to read that were returned! :(
    I love collecting tags from all over the place and have done so for decades. Thanks to scrapbooking and Project Life, my collections are now being incorporated into my creations and not just tucked a way in an old Cheez Ball tub (along with notes from class mates) from my school days! LOL
