Trio ~ Paper Bead Jewelry Set

I found a new paper pad at Michaels called Autumn Afternoon by GCD Studios. The pages are printed and solid on the back. The weight is between paper and cardstock which I love. I made this set for my daughter, Renay, who wears a lot of peach colors. At the side is a portion of the sheet of paper I used.





Thanks for looking!

Quilled Fall Leaves

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.  ~ Stanley Horowitz

Here are various shapes and colors of quilled fall leaves, along with a list of project ideas. Making just one colorful quilled leaf, and placing it on a little note card or tag, will do the trick for an occasion.

And here are the basic instructions for the different shapes. And a few samples:

Bag or Bottle Label and Tag


Tote Bag Tag

Instructions for the tote bag can be found HERE.

White on Black Quilled Bookmark

This is my bookmark for Challenge 1 at Take a Quill Pill. I used 1/4" (0.6 cm) wide strips and the tightrolls are 2" (5.1 cm). Using mainly tightrolls is the rule. This was fun; thanks Priyadarshini Deshpande for hosting the challenge.

Thank You Card Backwards

I used the front of a matching card to punch a retro flower for the back of the card that I made as the front. I used a 2" Whale of a Punch, burnished the backside to make a puffy flower and brushed on one coat of Beacon's Plastic Laminate. I added a tiny metal brad through the label before adhering it to the card. Don't like seeing those brad tails on the inside of a card.

Easy Peasy Purse

These little girl purses were so easy to embellish. I ironed on heart appliques and sewed on bright buttons, using white seed beads. I bought the blank denim purse at Walmart for $2 something. It has a heavy zipper across the top with a nicely made white cotton pouch. Easiness!
