Best of Butterflies CAS card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a CAS Butterfly card using my lovely Best of Butterflies set from Stampin' Up which my lovely friend in the US sent with my birthday goodies :-) I used a sentiment from another butterfly set which I cant remember where from right now-if I remember or if you happen to know please let me know :-) I used two colours from a Stampin' Up set I won and used my shadow stamping technique with the sentiment-it really is my favourite mistake I have ever made! :-) I mounted the panel on complimenting cardstock then placed on a white card blank.

While you are here please pop by the challenge and blog hop in the sidebar-its sponsored by Crafty Ribbons, Sarah Hurley, Stix2, Sassy Studios and also some Stampin Up candy from Carole so well worth a go! :-)

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…
