Jewellery Makes

Thought i'd share my recent makes, haven't signed in for awhile so I'll do some blog hopping later and look at all your lovely makes!!
Got a few bargin mixes of beads from my fave bead website so decided to make some chunky bracelets with them

Also got some funky chain (made up of large ovals and flower shapes), but only got a small length as I wasn't sure what to do with it. Anyway I split it all up, place beads in the centre of the shapes and added simple chain to connect it all together - not really my style but trying to make a wide range of items that would appeal to others and hopefully sell them at future fetes.

Finally added the suede to my leaf necklace! I'm happy with the look and will definatly be using suede again.
Thanks for looking xx

Magnolia Mad!

Here are a couple of cards I've made recently, been on abit of a roll! Got some fab magnolia images from my friend Katy and decided to have a good look through all my papers to get inspiration and here are the results!
First one is for no one in in particular, just loved the colours of the background and the layout just came to mind, most likely when I was falling asleep so I had to quickly draw it before I forgot it! lol

Second one is for my cousins little girl who is three in a few weeks time, I knew the Magnolia Horse was perfect for her card and I got my cuttlebug out to play as I haven't used it for awhile and cut her name out.

Thanks for looking!!

Altered Photo 'frame'

I've been staring at this photo for ages in our window sill, was in a plain clip frame and looked abit bare with just a white border so I decided to liven it up abit!! I kept the colours to black and white so it'll go in any room I put it in, had so much fun! I love this picture, a few years ago my family had a photo day, one of my mum's photographer friends came over and we had a brilliant day - the silly ones are my favourites - this is one of them, me with my best friend Andrew and my Brother

Gorjuss Card!

I haven't blogged in ages! Haven't made anything in ages :( must have lost my mojo!! Well I, like most of you have fallen in love with the new gorjuss girl stamps and just had to get one for myself! I've finally had a play with it and made a card - here's the result! I'm hoping to have a crafty day today so might update this post with any other makes I do today :) Hope you're all having a lovely easter weekend!

Matt's Birthday Card and Dice Earrings

Well as the title says, thought I would post matt's birthday card, had a complete blank on what to do and as it was his 30th I wanted it to be special - finally remembered I had the black and silver guitar image and decided to base it round that - he loves guitars, playing and listening to so it seemed perfect! Here it is ... I'm not too sure if it's the best i could have done but Matt loved it so thats all that matters

Got some Fimo to make some things are my mum and had a play with some left overs - not the best picture but here are some funky dice earrings I made - they could be loads better but this was just a little play with see what I could make with it!
