Appliques

Use appliques to add a hit of color, texture and retro appeal. They’re a great way to pump up theme since they come in so many motifs. Check out ideas for the star motif.

Hand-dyed Doilies

Doiles work as both foundation and accent and we’ve got scrapbook page ideas and craft ideas for using them. For those of us who haven’t invested in mist or dyes, it’s great to get doilies already hand-dyed and ready to use.

Jewelry findings – spacer beads

Small and pretty, spacer beads are a great “tiny” embellishment. Fasten them down with colorful brads for an eclectic look or top with gems for a vintage look. Punctuate your title or sprinkle them for flow. See our ideas for using little embellishments on your scrapbook pages.

Leaf-topped sewing pins

Fastening your elements to the page — by sewing, stapling, taping or pinning! — is a great way to add little polishing touches to the page. These leaf pins are great for spring and fall pages, for pages about growth and about nature.

Vintage map triangles

When an Etsy crafter puts their spin on ephemera you end up with ready-made ideas. Use these triangle map pieces to define a burst, create a foundation, or to add a banner/bunting treatment
