Gone Jewelry Crazy.

Turquoise, Pearl and Silver with Crab Medallion

Sterling Silver with Mother of Pearl and Cubic Zirconia

Earring Variety
The last few weeks, I've been watching more tutorials on YouTube on jewelry making and have stepped out even further from the basic charms that I use on mini albums and such.  I've made more earrings, bracelets and even my first fancy schmancy necklace.  I thought I'd share some pics of my creations.  I even bought a special punch to make earring cards for my earrings.  You can check out the punches here.  It even comes with approx 25 pieces of card stock to display your earrings on.  I love it!

Simple Father's Day Card

Good Morning and Happy Father's Day to all the Wonderful Dad's out there.  I hope you lovely ladies had a great day celebrating with your special man in your life.  I made this simple and cute little card for Thomas and thought I'd give you all a peep.  For the Hot Air Balloon and the piece that says Happy Father's Day, I used the print files from my Silhouette.  The blue clouds in the background is another image using the Silhouette and adhesive card stock.  I think I'm in love with the adhesive paper, makes things so easy.  Just peel and stick. 

Thanks for stopping by my little blog and letting me share my creations with all of you!  Have a Beautiful Day!

Madison Avenue Paper Bag Mini

This is my very first attempt at making a paper bag mini.  I followed Laura of Following The Paper Trail's Tutorial.  She used canvas for her cover, but I used paper.  I used the Madison Avenue Paper by My Mind's Eye.  Very pretty paper, of course.  Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut all the image pieces for my front cover.  I really loved how the flowers turned out.  The flowers are very delicate, so I sprayed them with acrylic sealer to harden the paper up a bit.  If you'd like to see the entire mini, just head over to my YouTube Channel.  Thanks for stopping in!
