Good morning! I'm very happy to see that some of you have been inspired to start using your other crafts on your pages. There were even a couple aha moments! Since I had crochet planned for today, I spent some time surfing around crochet sites and tutorials. I'm even more inspired now too!
Flowers are a ubiquitous scrapbooking embellishment, and crochet flowers are not only cute, but pretty easy to make. Lisa shared this page with three flowers.
I love those crochet hearts in the photo! Also I was tickled to see that she used a free 3x4 card from my blog. You can get the Yarn Love card here.
I crocheted up a bunch of flowers myself, and used one on this page
You can find the pattern here. They work up really fast! It took me only a couple minutes to make one.
I tried a more involved pattern to make this purple double layer flower that I paired with a crochet heart. These take about five minutes each, but are well worth it.
I also found this daisy pattern that I plan to try soon
We can't leave out our digital friends! I made this layout using a crochet flower embellishment from a free digital kit at Pixels & Co.
The kit I used isn't available anymore, but I found this one with a crochet heart!
Amy used this super cute owl on her page
I love it and I found a cute owl crochet pattern here.
I also loved how a crochet piece was used as a photo mat on this page.
I would never have thought is that! It's now duly noted in my idea book :)
And now for a giveaway! I'll choose one person from the comments to send a pack of crochet embellishments: a selection of flowers and hearts like the ones I made. You have until Sunday the 9th to enter, and I'll announce the winner in this post.
UPDATE: The winner by random draw is Mai who said
Mai, I sent you an e-mail with instructions for claiming your prize. Congrats!
One final parting thought. I also wanted to focus on using knitting on pages, since I also knit, but crochet seemed to be more poplular. If you knit, do you use knitted pieces on your pages? Care to share any simple tutorials for knitted embellishments?
