Family Tree Scrapbook Part Two

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Sorry I have been quiet but I have been making some DT projects for Crafty Ribbons Advent event and Sarah Hurley for the next Lookbook magazine-I am so excited to share these with you soon, I really hope youll like them! Anyway here I am with my Family Scrapbook page two-if you didnt see the start of this project then here is the background. I have decided to make a scrapbook using my Grandparents photos of all my distant family relatives-going back to the 1800's-I really want to use it as a way to thank my family for being such a loving part of my life and to pass down the generations. I havent used the original photos and if any of you have any old photos I would encourage you to get them out and scan them in to your computer for safekeeping and also to rescue any that are fading with age-with software you can really improve the quality of the image and rescue them before its too late :-)
I used a kit which I bought secondhand-I love the vintage shabby chic look and its perfec for this particular project-I cant remember what make it is, but I *think* its Basic Grey. If anyone recognises this then please point it out for me! :-) For this page you can see a 'Pull me' tab-when its pulled a note with who is in the photo comes out. Its a fantastic Christmassy image of a family party and it was a pleasure to work with :-)

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
