If ink was an embellishment, it would definitely be my fave; however I think that's more of a technique, no? I checked out my last several LOs & was initially kinda surprised that FLOWERS, particular Primas, kept coming up as a fave embellishment. I hadn't been aware of that! But the more I think of it, the more that makes sense... I've always loved flowers & floral prints, & I find anytime in a LO that I have to symbolize something peaceful, or just represent myself (e.g. for in a CJ sign-in), I tend to use flowers. They just connote something beautiful & positive to me, & I love that.

Least fave embellie...anything that takes multiple-steps to create. Do I enjoy making quilled embellies/ embossed accents/ fusible fiber/ die cut letters that require inking/ anything cut w/ my Fiskars Shapecutter? Yes I very much enjoy the creative process in making those things. But does part of me GROAN w/ impatience at the extra time these take to do? You betcha!

I am a flower lova! I just think that flowers can give a great touch to almost any lo. I am also loving using my new Cricut for the titles & look forward to using it for other touches too!

My least favorite is probably stickers (Sorry Lisa!) although there are always exceptions and I too still use them from time to time.

Favorite embellishments would be jewelry and ornaments.
Least favorite would be FLOWERS!

My favorite embellishment would be brads. I use these things on every layout and have tons of them in my cupboards.

I would say that my least favorite embellishment would be simple die-cuts. Decorated they are fine, but just on a plain sheet of white or colored paper will make me cringe every time.

My favorite embellisment changes with each round of scrapping that I do.

I have loved flowers, brads, fibers, ribbons, hardware, even initials.

However, I'd have to say that right now it is torn paper. I find that every layout that I produce lately has a little rip of paper somewhere. I've said before that it is probably psychologically teling in some way. So, have at it Freud, because I haven't figured it out. Remember: sometimes a banana is just a banana. :-)
