The site we wanted to showcase today is Embellishments By Tina.  This site is a wealth of information for a number of reasons.  The first is that Tina offers not just great information and products that you can use for your scrapbooking efforts, but she also offers you information and pictures of how to turn vintage items into amazing decorative pieces.

Her site is broken down into two main concentrations, the scrapbooking embellishments and the various vintage projects, which is aptly named “altered art.”  Tina also has an impressive online store, where you can find many of her projects that you can incorporate into your own projects or into your own home décor.
