trendspotting: rosette flowers

last summer it was all about banners, they were on cards and layouts everywhere. the latest trend i've noticed: rosette flowers. you can buy them pre-made

american crafts has a cute set that's just perfect for valentines day. kristina werner's used these stickers in this weeks macm.

they're also fun and easy to make. plus when you make you own embellishment you can customize it so that it's perfect for your project.

i used a rosette flower on this valentines day card. i'll be posting a video tutorial soon showing how i made my rosette flower, and used it on another valentines day themed card.
there are some great tools that you can get to make creating a rosette flower easier. if you have a big shot, be sure to pick up tim holtz's die. check out his video on how to use it HERE.
if you don't have a big shot or the tim holtz die my tutorial will show you how to create it with your bone folder and your paper trimmer. 

hope everyone is having a crafty weekend!
blog ya later :)
