Pink Altered File Folder

Elna has mentioned previously that September is "Altered File Folder" month here on our blog.

 I've decided to take the stationery folder from her entry of August 23 and give it a pastel treatment.

The paper used on the cover is from Bo Bunny (a very old range) and the stamped title from a set by Wendy Vecchi at Stampers Anonymous.

This is what the folder looks like on the inside.

The three greeting cards were made with white card-stock, left-over scraps, a flower, some ribbon, a paper doily and printed sayings.

Two ready-made mini cards were decorated in the same fashion.

Cut a few tags from green card-stock, decorate with strips of paper and thread ribbon through the holes.

Now all you have to do is place the greeting cards, mini cards, two white paper bags, the green tags and a couple of small white tags into the folder.

The most difficult part - deciding who you want to give it to
or if you will keep it for yourself...

Elna give detailed instructions for a similar project  in the latest issue of the Craftwise magazine - go check it out.

Into Bracelets

Two weeks ago we heard that we could join a private jewellery exhibition/market....
WOW, did we have to spark!!
Designing new bracelets, dyeing the silk, selecting the colours... etc.. etc
One day left and we are nearly ready.

Here are a few of the designs in four colours.
We hope that it will be a hit, but one thing I can say.. verrry objectivly...


Dig out the beads and get creative. Use the space you have and enjoy it.
Benice and I both went through a difficult time the last two weeks and
I think the bracelects saved us both from mini insanity, both our studio's are in beading chaos,
but at least we are surviving and you can always clean up the mess afterwards.
