Bracelet number 2

Here is another coiled bracelet that I have made, this time in pinks and greens. These bracelets take around 3 hours to make. ( my first one took about four hours so i'm getting quicker!!)I really like the end result of this bracelet. I have also bought some blue beads to make another so will post a photo once I have finished it.

Coiled Bracelet

This is a Bracelet I made for my mum, I haven't done much Jewelery Making but can now see that this could be just as addictive as card making!! I used a mixture of different glass beads in golds, browns and teal colours.I gave it to my mum yesterday and she loved it, so much so that she now wants earrings to match !!! lol.
Hope everyone is ok, I'm looking forward to the end of the week as it will mark the start of the school summer holidays and we are all ready for the rest.

Here is another card I have made for one of my classes on Wednesday. This is just one of the cards we will be making in the class. For this card I have used a stamp from Crafty individuals and also The Tim Holtz Film strip Die by Sizzix.

I have also used Distress inks in Wild Honey, Rusty hinge and Barn Door. This class is now Full but I have a repeat class for anyone wanting to attend on Friday 17th September from 10 - 12.30 at the Craftroom Newton Abbot.

Wildflower Sprigs

This is a card I have made with the Wildflower Sprigs stamp set from Stampendous. For the background I cut a piece of Black card and embossed it using One of the Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder and then rubbed over with Metallic Rub on in Pink. Then I cut The label with a Sizzix die and coloured with Distress inks (Colours are Spun Sugar, Vintage Velvet and Aged mahogany). Then I used one of the larger stamps from the set to stamp the flowers. The little greeting is also from the same set.

I also added some White highlights with a White gel pen. Then stuck it all together with DS tape.

Bookmarks with Fox and Friends stamp set from Jules

Hello Bloggers, long time I know but I just seem to be so busy all the time. What with two kids (3 if you include hubby) and teaching 3 classes a week at The Craftroom my time seems to go so quick! Last night I put everything aside and sat down with my youngest to make some bookmarks. You might remember the ones he made last year to sell at school to raise money for Children in need. Well this year we are going to be prepared... all going to plan!! and we have started making them early.For these bookmarks we used the Fox and Friends stamp set by stampin up along with the 2" scallop circle punch and 13/4 " and 1 1/2 " circle punch all by stampin up.
We also used stampin up cardstock in Choc chip and old olive along with the matching colour ink pads. Finally we used the jumbo paperclips from Staples

Here is my Son busy on the production line!! Well if you would like to buy any of these stampin up items you can buy them from Jules. Always a great service so pop over to her blog for more details.
Hope everyone is ok and enjoying the summer so far. Take care for now.
