More beading

 All made in the last week or so for the Esty Shop ( big button to the left will take you to the shop if you would like a look around). I have already sold a pair of these earring before I opened up the shop. I want to make some in darker colours with gold findings or brass. A great way to use up odd beads.

 A tila bead bracelet with tiny gold seed beads.

 More earring- green is my very FAV colour- I love the crystal rondells and the lustre seed beads.

 A double strand necklace with multicolour beads and crystals and two charms on a suede cord.

 a kumihimo bracelet with a purple Crystal heart charm.

A rustic leather boho bracelet made with aged picasso beads.

Back soon

 Not been here for a Looong time! Work recently left little time for blogging and sharing BUT ...I am on H O L I D A Y  yaayy! 
As you can see, I have been jewelry making ( or collecting beads as hubby like to call it). I have not stopped paper crafting and if you look at that rubbish bin, it is full of paper scraps from my last post of tag making.

 That lovely cup , has remnants of my coffee in it and was given to me on the last day of term by a lovely pupil to say thanks. I have used it every day since then :).

 Some of my latest makes I am definitely hooked and have even opened up an Etsy shop ( mostly so I can buy more beads).

Just a small selection of my beads and findings...shhhhh .

I would like to thank everyone ( very late!) who swapped ATC's with me for the anniversary, I received some truly gorgeous cards.

If you would like to join in with this weeks hop around the desks, Pop over to Julia's blog where all the info and links are.

Uk scrappers Tags For July

 This month the theme was "Holidays"
 I cut the tags from pale turquoise card stock and then swirls some white distress paint over them. I followed that with some swirls of opal magic acrylic paint in yellow-blue.
Then splattered on some white and turquoise spray .
I drew and water coloured the beach huts and then cut them out and popped onto 3D foam.

 I inked the edges.

And added some words and a boarder from Graphic 45.

Back soon.

Actual Paper Crafting

 Don't faint  (I have also made four bracelets this weekend too!) I have a few people to thank at the end of term. Lots of people who have made sure, that whole working on my own, I got a break, a drink, a loo break and lunch- none of which would happen regularly if it weren't for them.

 I used paperartsy stamps over a piece of card that was inked with distress inks and then sprinkled with some Paperartsy infusion powders then sprayed with water.

 I cut out each flower and then used liquid pearls to highlight.

I still have a few more to make.

 I also made some bags to put sweeties in .

And some tiny ones for bracelts.
Not quite finished.

Still beading

 And filling my Etsy store up. Most of these are available to buy but if to would like anything made up or see something that I have made as a gift and its not in the store, just drop me an Email and I will contact you .
I have been have fun making Kimihimo braids. The top one was my first attempt with just two colours of cotton cord.

 This one uses one colour of the cotton but eight different shades of green seed beads.

 The clasp is extendable to fit any size.

 This one used threes colours of cord and three colours of seed beads to match.

 minds me of sherbet.

 I bought some beautiful Tila beads in a gold/khaki colour and used them with gold and green Picasso seed beads.

Finished with a gold colour button - I Love this one.

 A more simpler one with the Tila beads and gold seed beads.

Also adjustable - Had to prise this one off daughter wrist after photographing !!

Almost end of term, so back soon :)
