Jewelry Crafting


I bought some bead supplies at Michaels a few weeks ago in the sales and clearance section. I envisioned making some necklaces with matching earrings and bracelets as I purchased the assortments.



This is a necklace made with the green-colored assortment of beads.

I'm still working on making the matching earring and bracelets for these necklaces with the remaining assortment of beads, and will post my pics once I've completed them.

SCAL (SVG) Waterfall card

I fell in love with these Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) Waterfall card templates. So I studied their video instructions which shows how to make a sample card, in order to make my own creation.


Here is my version, with a few minor changes, of that Waterfall card.

For the pull-tab strip, I used a piece of double-sided paper from the DCWV "Fun in the Sun" Summer Glitter stack. I applied some Studio18 gem stones (available at Michaels) to the center of the flower petals, and also adhered a scrollie-shaped clip as a pull instead of the standard ribbon.



This first panel is stamped "thanks for making my day."



The second panel is stamped "Thank you."


You'll notice that when the tab is pulled out completely, there is another "thank you" message stamped. I also omitted the left strip from the original card to change it up a bit. All stamps are simple $1.00 stamps from Jo-Ann's craft store. All cardstock used is from various DCWV mat stacks. I used Jo-Ann's Scrap Essentials bright mini brads. I used Tsukineko Dew Drop inks to shadow around the flowers and the borders of the die-cuts.

Thank you for visiting my blog and viewing my card. I hope it inspires you to make your own wonderful creations. ♥
