Some of my jewellery pieces

hi fellow bloggers - I have been tidying up my blog and found a couple of draft posts that I had forgotten about. Anyway decided to post these as I am beginning to start making some jewellery pieces for christmas gifts. The top one is a knitted mesh lariat and the bead at the bottom is held in by the rigidity of the wire - just magic! The two blue and black ones are a matching bracelet and necklace from acrylic beads and ribbon and the pink/black one is a bracelet. The bottom one is a tiara I made with freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals.

tea light decorative screen


hi fellow blogger
here is another o/s project and although nearly what I was aiming for may make a few more tweaks.
I used the spellbinders fancy lattice die and lined it with cream paper and then an inside liner of acetate.  Then joined all four sides together by adding a folded strip and double sided tape[red line]. I used other spellbinders dies to decorate.

hi fellow bloggers -  I have started in earnest on my christmas cards so here is todays offering. I have used spellbinders dies for this one so it is just under the A6 size probably between A6 and A7 and fine for non special cards. The ribbon is from Mei crafts - one of their xmas set.

happy world card making day

World Card Making Daywishing you all a great day making at least one card!


hi fellow bloggers - Saturday and another LiM - I do hope you are all well and having a good weekend. The challenge this week is the colour silver. I have gone for a Christmas card as I know I can use it fairly soon!
I have used a scalloped base card and the front of a second one to offset. The stamp is from a Kanban set I got from QVC ages ago and I used Perfect medium and bright silver embossing powder and the masking technique. The sentiment is from a free set and stamped in blue. To finish off I used a border snowflake embossing folder from Sizzix,

finally finished

hi fellow bloggers - this card has been sitting in my craft room unfinished for about 3 weeks slowly evolving in between other things!  Any way today I decided it had lain around for long enough. It is bright and cheery I think as I needed the colour boost as the weather is grey and the nights getting shorter and colder.

I have used spellbinder die sets mainly with bazill basics card. The sentiment and parcels are using peel offs and the gems are from Paperchase. The card was the pink bazill to start with but I felt it was a bit flimsy so tucked a card blank underneath so the pink is on the back and front. I am scanning my cards now as they are clearer than when I take a photo!
