Findings Friday!

Happy Friday to you all

Well I have been wrapping with my wire again. This time I have made a fab Necklace for my Dad.  He loves Tigers Eyeso when I saw this tigers eye on Jewellery Maker I just had to wrap it for him and pit it onto a leather cord.  I think it turned out great.  
This gem is so magical Tigers eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is a metamorphic rock.It is a member of the Quartz family and unmistakeably natural.

Every Friday I will be showcasing a piece of jewellery for Findings Friday.If you have any questions or would like to see certain techniques the please ask.  Have fun and Keeeeeeeeeeeeep crafting.

Show & Tell

Well Hello To all the Crafty Peeps

I thought I would show you a few makes I have been working on over the last few weeks. I now have a new job so I have been using my free time to be creative and this is what I have been up to. 

I got this box free at a vintage store so decided to make it into a memory box for all the things we have done over the summer.I have used various die cuts and stamps including a Hand coloured Tilda stamp of Tilda Stamping!!





My Mums birthday is in October and she loves all things Halloween so this is her birthday card. Using Tim Holtz Dies and a Polkadoodles Digi Stamp.


I have 12"x 12" magnetic frames so I thought I would make this layout to hang in my Bedroom. 


This box I got in a Thrift store for 50p and I have used various stamping techniques and stencilling to bring it back to life!


This is an old Sweetener box I decorated with die cuts and stamps to house my glue sticks. There is a video on this on my YouTube Channel pop on over and check it out.




I hope you liked my makes, love for you to leave a comment. Have fun and Keeeeeeeeep Crafting xx
