Embellishments including stickers, stamps, eyelets, brads, chipboard elements in various shapes, alphabet letters, lace, wire, fabric, beads, sequins and ribbon can be used. Photo corner mounts, adhesive dots, mounting tape, craft punches, inking tools, embossing tools, textured scissors, art pens, die cut machines and templates, craft punches, stencils and rubber stamps are all used in creating elaborate unique designs on these pages. Extensive journaling can also be used as part of the album.
