'Friendships are...' Sewing themed card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I have another card using the fab All Sewn Up range by Sarah Hurley and Sew ribbons by Crafty Ribbons. I used canvas paper to print my hexagons onto, to give a real fabric texture to my card. I cut the ribbon then set the ends with clear nail varnish :-) I placed my hexagons then cut round them on the front of my card, then added a panel of complimenting paper onto the inside of the card. I then added a heart button from Sarahs store :-)

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.
