Projects 130-132 of 365: Vintage Inspired Jewelry March 16, 2011

I just love the look of vintage costume jewelry, so here are a few designs that I whipped up one afternoon, probably around Christmas time..  I’m not so fond of the bracelet….it came out looking a bit too sloppy, but hey, that doesn’t mean that someone else won’t like it..


When my new supplies arrive hopefully I will be able to make some of the bigger, chunkier designs that I drool over at all the stores!!

Project 100 of 365: Midnight Musings Web October 4, 2010

Ok….One more card, then really I’m going to bed…LOL!  I seriously do need to get to bed, otherwise I’m going to oversleep my first day at work….

This card is based on a card by Phyllis Johnson, but I did make quite a few changes.  Again, since its Halloween, I dirtied up all the pieces (I’m still sticking to my guns….Halloween isn’t supposed to be pretty…hehe), purposely made it so all the pieces weren’t so perfectly lined up and even, added some spooky glam with pearl stickles, and replaced some of the expensive Designer Paper with my homemade patterned paper.

Don’t you just love how the spider web emboss folder makes the dsp crack a little, letting the white core just peek through….Helps add to the disorder of the Spooky Halloween Cards.
