Wow, exciting - thanks for the chance to win! :-)

I do buy some embellishments but sometimes I like to make them to match my project perfectly. It depends on whether I find just the right thing - sometimes I make a whole project to fit round a gorgeous embellishment I've bought!

okay I am just going to come out and say it . I love all your crafts and all your embellishments . some ppl are just truly crafty and artisitic and I do so think you are one of those ppl .

Mimi said...

I mostly create my embellishments, but there are a few out there that I have purchased.

Kaytee said...

That is so cool that your embellies are going to be in kits!!! I have to go back and start at the beginning of the hop. I like making and buying embellies... it depends on what kind of mood I am in! Happy Thursday hun!

Trisha said...

I love love YOUR handmade embellishments, but my projects never turn out like that! So, I usually just buy them:)

ShoppingTamii said...

I do both, but your's are awesome! I am now your "follower" LOL!!!

AmesOx said...

Sammye Jo Your Embellies are so beautiful! Thank you so much for creating for the Kit :-) I enjoy working with your little beauties.

Amy Copas said...

I would like to make my own embellishments, but haven't gotten that "crafty/talented" yet. So I usually buy them. Actually, I'm still such a beginner in scrapbooking that my embellishments are usually just stickers! lol But you have to admit there are some awesome stickers out there! lol I'm very proud of my scrapbook pages thus far though!

Melissa said...

My favorite is to make my own.. but I do use many store bought embellies also!

Samantha said...

I like to do a bit of both!!:)

lundgren79 said...

I do a little of both. The embellishments I make are terribly simple as I use my flower and butterfly punches and then add bling, buttons, brads, etc. They are no near as crafty as yours and a few others I have seen. I cannot quite get the hang of making my own felt embellishments. :)

JuJu Bee's Scrapbook Corner said...

Sammye Jo! Your handmade embellies ROCK and add the perfect touch to our kits. We are so honored that you joined us today for our first ever Blog Buzz. MUAH!

laterg8r said...

mostly i like to make my embellies but buying them is also good. i love seeing something someone else has done and saying, "i'm gonna try that".

the buzz is that you make the embellies to go with the kit - very cool :D

i am now following you, come by and visit me sometime :D

Jessica said...

62 Cards - Sammye Jo said...

SO glad you all have stopped by today! I will draw the winner on Sunday and announce Monday!

tallulah1 said...

I must say - I have so many store bot embellies - that I have either bought - swapped or gotten as a RAK. And I will get them out when I start a page - but 85% of the time I make my own embellies. Personal homemade things just have so much more of a statement than the store bought in my opinion. Would love to see yours!!!

Genevieve said...

Ohhh. Looking at your ETSY goodies! Happy Blog Hop!

Genevieve said...

Oh yeah, for the most part, I manipulate basic supplies rather than buying finished embellies. I like "my touch" on my layouts.

Maria said...

I do a bit of both, I buy embellies but I also like to make my own.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Lisa said...

I also like both making my own and buying them! I just recently started making my own!

Elizabeth said...

I like to make them, but also can't keep from buying them! Super cute flowers!

craft_princess said...

Already a follower.

I like to make my own flowers! Learning more and more ways all the time to spruce them up a bit!

Mama Tuttle said...

Your embellishments rock . . .I love making my own and buying them!! So glad to be a participant in the JuJu Bee BLog Hop!!

Kristin said...

Handmade vs Store Bought .... depends on my mood or what I have in my stash at the time. I love making my own flowers.

lisa said...

I love the look of handmade...but I get lazy...and busy...and go with store bought!! Thanks for the buzz!!

Kristi B. said...

Your handmade embellies are super cute! :)

Jodie R said...

What a wonderful question, Sammye Jo. I have a whole box of stickers and store bought embellishments that are just sitting there. I would rather make my embellishments, than buy them. I think it gives my layouts a unique look and no one can duplicate it exactly. I also just became a follower of your awesome blog. Thank you.

Rita said...

I love handmade embellishments but mine don't turn out near as wonderful as yours so i usually buy them.
