Special Guest Sponsor
CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS



It's time to feature another one of our fabulous sponsors today!

We are so very grateful for all our sponsors as More Than Words
just wouldn't be the same without them, and our participants not as happy!



Let's learn a little more about CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS 
through their own words:

Creative Embellishments is a small family owned American manufacturer of laser cut products such as chipboard, wood veneer, stencils, rubber stamps and acrylic. We also design and manufacture our own flair buttons. We cater to retail, wholesale, kit clubs, card and scrapbook classes, and not for profit customers. Very often, businesses reach out to us for custom work that we design for them or images that they provide to us. Our mission is to offer fun, inspiring, unique designs to bring out your inner creativity. We highly value our customers (friends) and aim to provide premium quality products at great prices and excellent customer service.

We all love laser-cut chipboard! It is safe to say that over the last 10 years
chipboard has become one of the most must-have stash for every paper-crafter and we are sure that designers will use them for many years to come.
Creative Embellishments however not only offers lots of very innovative chipboard designs, but many other essential scrapbooking products.

You can find more about each designer showcased below as well as

We are so very proud to spotlight the gorgeous projects 
from 4 awesome designers from the Creative Embellishments DT 
who have been inspired by our November Main Challenge



DANA TATAR
Dana: I think about the FUTURE every day. I'm especially excited to see what the future holds for my daughters who are a bright light in my life. I incorporated STARS unto my design in several ways: with a stencil, with a stamp, with chipboard and other star-shaped embellishments. I used letter stickers to include the word 'future' in my journaling which reads: 'No matter what the future holds, 
I know you both are going to shine!'

On her fabulous star-spangled layout, Dana used the Star Bokeh stencil, Grunge Stars stamp as well as the Nested Stars chipboard 
and Star Light Star Bright chipboard words.




DEBBIE SHERMAN
Debbie: I'm about to make one of the life changing choices in my life and for me it's been overwhelming... retirement. For this challenge, I chose to think of something in my near FUTURE and that would be the change of seasons, from a colourful Fall to a snow-covered Winter. I live in a part of America where I have four seasons and I love them all for different reasons. Winter is a time of rest after playing and working hard throughout beautiful Summer and Fall, just like what the future holds for me.  I incorporated the creative challenge by stenciling in 
a few shiny STARS on my background. 

Debbie's page is beautiful, in part thanks to the beautiful Flourish 13 
and Flourish 15 chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments.




MARILYN RIVERA
Marilyn: This challenge inspired me to create a canvas because I think of the FUTURE with hope and happiness. I was also inspired by this quote by Jim Rohn: 'Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.' For that reason, I added a lot of chipboard STARS to represent an illuminated future full of opportunities, and of course, the creative challenge. 

Marilyn created her exquisite canvas by using the Fairy Dust 2 stencil
and awesome chipboard designs Social Hash Tags and Star Pieces.




NANNE HARRY
Nanne: As a new grandmother, I love looking towards the FUTURE and seeing how my granddaughter develops: from the first smile to clapping of the hands, those first words and from crawling to walking. Only the future knows what's next. For the creative challenge I added lots of little STARS to my background 
using a stencil and texture paste.

Nanne's stunningly sweet page is full of Creative Embellishments goodness, from the Twinkle Star stencil to the Distressed Script and Distressed Crackle stamps, as well as the following chipboards: Vintage Flourish Set 1, Large Clock Face 3




 SANDI CLARKSON
Sandi: One of the most immediate events in my FUTURE are the upcoming holidays. As a grandmother, I especially enjoy seeing things through my grandchildren's eyes. I always wonder which traditions will be passed down through the generations... and what new ones may come along. The inspiration word prompted me to scrap this photo of my sweet little grandson who hopefully will someday be a Santa to his own little family.  My STAR shapes are evident in both the stenciled background, multiple chipboard star shapes and the flair.

We all love Christmas-themed projects and Sandi's is no exception. On her fabulously festive page, she used the following chipboard pieces: Falling Stars Border, Spiral Tree and the Christmas Sentiments word set as well as the Falling Stars stencil; the Distressed Crackle and Grunge Music Note Border stamps and some beautiful flair from the Shine Flair Gold collection.
