This challenge is all about making your own embellishments and or background papers using existing tutorials you may have seen or trying your hand at something completely new yourself. The most important aspect of the challenge is SHARING your secrets.....LOL

All you need is at least one embellishment or piece of pp (using stamping, embossing, misting, etc) you've made yourself to qualify.

There are OPTIONAL twists that could earn you up to 5, yes you read correctly, 5 EXTRA VOTES.

Twist
You can use ANY OR ALL of the 3 tutorials listed below. Each tutorial you use will get you 1 extra vote. Please indicate in your entry post which tutorial you used.

1. NO SEWING Fabric Bloom By Wendy (ME)
2. Elegant Ruffled Paper flower by SIMPLYPAPER
3. Wax paper Flowers By Byondbrz
The 3rd twist is one of our JULY winner Byondbzr's very own.

JULY's WINNER: Byondbrz!!!!! CONGRATS!!!
Made in the USA By Byondbzr

Now, for those very creative artists out there who are so good at whipping up something fabulous out of nothing, this 2nd part of the twist is for you.......

You will be awarded 2 EXTRA votes for making your VERY OWN TUTORIAL for something completely new and posting the link with your entry. If you are unable to post a tutorial (no blog, etc.) you still get the 2 votes if the embellishment is OBVIOUSLY a UNIQUE idea and easy to replicate just by looking at the LO or if details have been provided in the description of the LO

No sign-up necessary, just drop your entry off anytime.

WINNER GETS A RAK FROM ME!!!!!! -

An additional perk for the winner is to have their tutorial featured in the following months challenge (if they used their own) OR they get to select the 3rd tutorial if they have none of their own.

Just a few rules/guidelines

1. Your layout MUST OBVIOUSLY contain at least 1 embellishment or printed paper that you have made yourself from scratch.
2. Please provide details or the link to the tutorial you used to make your item because that’s what this challenge is all about after all…………...sharing the knowledge
3. 1 or 2-pages are allowed but it MUST be paper LO due to nature of the challenge
4. Only one layout per person can be submitted for judging.
5. Please remeber to allow public embedding so your LO can be posted to the first post for voting

August's challenge runs from 30th July to 30th August!!
Please PM me your top 5 LO's (numbers only) on the 31st August. Poll will be posted on the 1st September (depending how quickly you guys get your votes in)

P.S. Leaving comments on the other contestants LO's in NOT a requirement but please feel free to do so if you choose.
Some helpful tips for newcomers.....

LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the left-hand side and click on ‘Share Anywhere'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

Hope you ladies don't mind indulging me this month, I've picked one of my own tutorials for a twist option this month but these are soooooo cool I just HAD to share.

I've been experimenting with different fabric and it's amasing how versatile these are. I'll post some more pics as I go.

I've been dying to try out Vicky's paper tutorial. It's so beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you ladies come up with.

July's winner gets to pick the 3rd tutorial or use one of their own.....CAN'T WAIT!!

Oh, btw, in case you (general you) don't read the description, that LO is all white. The cream is not like that IRL..

Which brings me to a teeny pet peeve of mine. I get asked questions sometimes that are already answered in the description under my LO's. Does NOBODY read those? Just wondering!

I have not been making my own embellishments for long, but it is kind of fun. Here is a layout that I did. The ribbon fan I made just playing around - but the swirly curly flower is from a tutorial off of this blog - http://maryssouthernmomen ts.blogspot.com
I was going to make it so it looked more like a pom-pom but the butterfly was so perfectly centered I decided to show it off. TFL

Did I tell you, I BROKE my sharpest pair of scissors on the jeans? They just snapped right in half! They cut easily enough, I was surprised when they broke. Today I bought more scissors and they are cutting the jeans just fine though..

Wendy, I loved the No Sew Fabric Blooms! I wanted a large flower so thought it only fitting to use a good size flower for the center because I didn't have anything that big that I would have liked to put in there. Really loved the results!

Wendy: I haven't gotten the tute up for my other page, and I think I want to us this one instead. That OK?? No tutorials or extra twists here, just my own simple work. I hand painted the sand, surf, sky, sun background, and also put together my own version of the new Prima flower necklace thingies. PLEASE, I emplore any of you to NOT buy those! Unless you have tons of money and don't mind that is, lolz... All you need is ribbon/thread, flowers, and pearls/beads. I didn't do a tutorial because they are truly just common sense. All the flowers on this are also my own...

love this challenge! Here's my take:
caution: cute pets at play! By Amarilys

For the flowers, I used Wendy's no sewing fabric and love how it turned out! I will definitely be making more of these! Oh, I added an extra petal to mine because it didn't look full enough for me. Hope this is ok! I also used Rebecca's folded fabric blooms (link in my blog) for the two round flowers.

I also made my own tutorial.Here's my tutorial on how to make a 12x12 background using only scraps.

Welcome Lisa, great to have you join in.

Denise, I'm finally recovering but now have a mouth full of cold sores so I look as bad on the outside as I was feeling on the inside.....LOL!!!
Thank goodness it's winter here so I can wrap a scarf around my face to cover up when in public.........I feel like something out of a horror movie..LOL!

What a great challenge. I love making flowers, and I just got myself alot of different kinds of fabrics for this.

Here is one lo I made using homemade flowers. All the flowers are home made. I am working on another one with flowers from one of the twist tutorials. Maybe I'll be able to finish it in time

Awww, sorry, that is no fun at all. I used to get sores inside my cheeks all the time but after I took a dietary supplement, L-Lysine, for a while I haven't had even one. Its an amino acid protein builder and it worked for me. Maybe it would help you. Just an idea.
