Snowflake Tussie Mussie/ 1st Design Team Project for Mama's Treasures on Zibbet

Greetings crafty friends!!! I am super excited that I get to be a guest designer for this month of December for the Zibbet shop Mama's Treasures. I got a great DT package for this month and when I seen the beautiful lace that Rebekah sent me, I knew that I wanted to make something of course Christmas themed and what I like about this trim is that the dangle looks like its got snowflakes on there. I weaved some red ribbon on the top of this lace trim. I added some red rinestones that are in the shop as well. I added some of the dangles from that same lace on the bottom of the tussie mussie with some rinestones hanging from there. I added some red trim from my stash with some white flat back trim. The final piece I added was a home made red flower that was given to me in a secret santa package from xmas last year. I hope that you can have fun making these to give gifts inside of them. xoxo

Steampunk Album

Hi all! I'm back with some more projects that I'm gradually trying to catch up on this blog. Its been difficult ever since my laptop gave out. Anyhow this here project I made for Basically Bare Design Team. I love this album that is called Delightful Doors, I love it cuz it looks like a gatefold album, you can take it apart just like I did and rearrange the pages inside of it just like you can with many of the other spiral albums. I also used a combination of Graphic45 Steampunk Debutante and Marion Smiths Nirvana and Timekeeper. I tried to put all pictures in some kind of order. Please take a look at all the products at Basically Bare

Halloween Top Hat for Gone Artsy

Me again! This is a project that I did in a Live Ustream Class for the Zibbet store Gone Artsy where I am currently a guest designer for. The class was back in Oct. but by know am sure you are all aware that I was just able to get on a real computer to update my blog. Tomorrow I will be updating my videos on YouTube. Anyhow I had a great time during this live class and I want to Thank everyone who joined me. I had a paper mache top hat that I knew would be easy and fast to make. I used black felt, some black cheese cloth and some great laces from Gone Artsy as well as some from my stash. I had won the skeleton from another live class I attended . The mask is from GA as well. I took apart some red nagorie goose feathers for the sides of the mask. ~Thanks for taking a look at my project!! xoxo

Bridal Headpiece and Bracelet Set

I am back with another project for Gone Artsy, a shop on Zibbet that carries beautiful laces, bling, accessories for weddings, just to name a few. I was very excited to make this Bridal set!! I used one of the silver metal headbands, I used some fabric stiffener to shape and adhere the beautiful applique and then finished it off with this amazing strand of flowered bling. For the bracelet, I had a wide silver bracelet that I have never used so I thought I would put it to use to make a matching bracelet . I used the same fabric stiffener on the other applique that I cut a little bit shorter to fit the bracelet, then I used the last bling flower on the center . I had some flat back pearls with some bling around it, I used a couple for the sides of the flower. 
I tried to model it on myself , it was a little hard because I made it for a bride to wear her hair up. I guess if it was styled nicely it can be worn like a band as well. Anyhow ,  I hope that this was something different than what you have maybe seen before. Take a look at all the amazing products that Deb sells in her shop. Just click the link above!!! Thanks~
