One of my most favorite embellishments to use on a page is the date via a word or number on a page.
I love words + numbers.
It’s a great way to add character and yet still be a part of what the page is about.
That’s why creating kits that deal with ‘time’ has been so fun for me.

Um. Two words.
You seriously have to look at each and everyone of those tags to see all the details and all the KBS shapes she used! And if you really look at the kits? Many of them are the This+That series that will be on sale for 30% off tomorrow.
I think one of my favorite embellishments is the damask shape cut in a printed paper (sitting behind the butterfly). That one speaks to me.
Here’s what Nichol has to say:
I used the “inside” part from the large key as a flower accent on one of the hearts. To give the flower on the red heart dimension and texture, I die cut 6 layers, 3 from white cardstock and 3 from vellum. The result is s very full and pretty flower.
I added texture to the white cardstock flower pieces and tags by running them through my Big Shot and using Papertrey Ink Impression Plates on each. I gave many of the die cuts dimension by die cutting the image once from the patterned paper and once from brown cardstock and slightly off-setting the patterned paper on the cardstock to give the images a bit of a “shadow”.
This type of display can easily be changed out for each season and is a fun way to add a simple homemade seasonal feeling to your decor.
I love that you don’t have to be able to ‘cut chipboard’ when you have a Silhouette. Just cut multiple layers of cardstock to give you the dimension you need. That’s been one of my favorite tricks in my bag forever. I do it frequently!
