More Soldered Jewelry

I made this necklace for my Design Team
project for this month.
Oh how I love to make jewelry!!!  I started
 with the DoCrafts metal frame GA6.  I drilled
holes into it.  I attached a beautiful Lampwork
Glass bead GA69 to the Glass Chandelier
Crystal GA28.  I used a total of 3 of the beads.
They come in a set of 5!!!
I stamped the word Paris and soldered it
onto the frame.  I also decorated the back.
 I antiqued the designs to help them stand out
and to give it an old treasure feel.
I used a resin glue to attach a picture to the
back of the Crystal before soldering the back.

June Is The Month For Weddings!

I cut out this church with my Spellbinders
die.  I added the gorgeous the wonderful Silver
Fusion Chard Glitter GA654 to the steeple.
The Vintage Rose Blend GA652 looks so
pretty on the roof.  The glitters are a mixture
of glass glitters, micro beads and chards.  
On the inside I added a 1 yard Prima Lumies
to light it up!
I used the Foiled Light Pink Cardstock
GA610 to cut out the windows and then
covered the doors with it also.  I love
this paper!!!
I added the Light Pink Rhinestone GA833 
above the door.  The church sits on a disk that 
I glued onto a tiny wooden candlestick.   I 
think this little church screams wedding!

Cards with Matching Envelopes

I made this set using Prima's Tales of You and Me
paper line.  I used the 6x6 size to make the card and 
used the A4 size to make the envelope.
I did add a brad from the line to the heart.  The
sentiment says, this girls runs on Jesus' love and 
lots of coffee.  
This one comes with a matching envelope too!  It
says, Take life one cup at a time.
I love this paper line and it is still in the shop so
head on over to to get yours now!

Shabby Altered Shutters

I took this picture in my kitchen but I altered them for
my craft room.  I had these laying around for a few
years so this was long overdue.
First I painted them with some Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Next I made the 4 panels with some muslin fabric I had.
I decided to make double ruffles for each.  I also added
2 pictures of Marie Antoinette that I had printed onto
I made the mould using the IOD Mould 
Baroque #3 GA glued it down with wood
glue while it was still wet.  After it dried I
painted it pink and then white again,  
I framed the picture with the Loopy Faux
Pearl trim GA695 and put it on top of a doily.
I added the Long Floral applique GA318
on each side panel.  
I stitched the Garden Arbor Lace GA135 onto the 
top ruffle and the Floral Cathedral GA323 to the
bottom ruffle.  Here it is in my craft room!
Please go to Deb's shop to find your laces and
the moulds.  You can shop here!

Create a Unique Necklace with me!

I created this necklace on a YouTube video that
you can see here!  I used Seam Binding, 
cheese cloth,  coffee dyed lace and some of 
the beautiful trims from the Gone Artsy Zibbet 
store.  I added the Faux Pearl and Rhinestone Cup 
Chain GA287 and some white pearls that I had.  
I used the Pearl and Rhinestone Oval 
Cabochon GA109 ontop of the Eight Point 
Star Applique GA170 and some dyed
 seam binding on one side. 
I added a metal bird from my stash.
I also used our favorite Seed Bead Trim GA57 and 
the Glass Hollow Domed 2pc. Cabochon GA42 that 
I made into a bird cage. I wrapped wire around it 
and added the beautiful Pink and Green Faceted 
Glass Bead GA69 to it. The word bead says sweet 
and laugh.  The flower is one I made with pink chiffon.
I made the chiffon rose.  It is like the ones that
I used on the hat I made for the tea.
Thanks for stopping by.

Tea Table Hat Decoration

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing the hat
that I made out of chipboard.  I covered it
in papers from the Prima Tales of Me line
that I got from the Gone Artsy store.  Then
I painted the inside white.  I used the
gorgeous laces from the shop to cover
the paper. GA323 is the Floral Cathedral lace
that covers the sides and go over the edge.
I used the GA 317 Floral Dangle lace on the brim.
I used the GA76 white beaded trim on top of the
dangle lace.  
I used the IOD Mould (GA837d) to make a paper 
clay (GA836) element that I painted pink and white 
for the front and added leaves from GA44 lace.
I added big white beads in random areas around the
chiffon flower that I made.
 I used the White Ostrich feather GA68 on the back
behind 3 more handmade chiffon flowers.  Hanging
is the GA318 Long Floral Applique that I cut a piece
to shorten it and again added the leaf lace.
I absolutely loved making this hat and I sure hope
that you will try to make one too!  Please go to
the store to find your lovely laces and many other 
items.  Use DTSPL15 for 15% off.
I will post pictures from the tea next post!

Favors For A Tea Table

Every year I have hosted a Table for a Tea 
to raise money for either abused children
or Choices which is a program for pregnant
women.  This year I decided to make
these bottles for each lady at my table.
I covered the bottle in lace and then
added a lace flower to the front.  I used
lace from Gone Artsy in the flower 
 White Pearl beaded trim (GA76) and
   Tear Drop Lace (GA319) for the neck.  
I also used the Seed Bead Trim(GA57) that 
many of us on the Design Team love.  
I stamped this tag and added a thin
bead of glitter to add some bling to it.
I added the Organza Shimmery white
flower (GA863) at the bottom.
I used some liquid glue and covered the cork
top with beads, pearls and some bronze micro
beads.  Isn't this close up of that Seed Bead Trim
beautiful?  I love that stuff!
 I also used the Floral Dangle Lace on half of the
bottles.  I made a total of 10.  I hope they like them.

Altered a Prima Frame with paper clay and a Mould

I love this frame that I got from Deb's Gone Artsy
store.  It was part of my Design Team Package.
I decided on this picture of my daughters and so
I painted the frame with some white and pink paint.
The ornate pieces on the side and the bottom are
made with paper clay and a Prima mould.  I show
you how to make the moulds in the video below!
The paper is Prima's Salvage District paper and
the coordinating flowers.  I popped the picture of
my girls over a Sherri Baldy My Besties chipboard
cut out.  
Please watch my video to find out how I made the
moulds and what I used to alter the frame.  These
moulds are so much fun and you can add them to
so many things.  I hope that you like what I created!
