A Little Bit Crafty: Are we there yet? Midway Inspiration

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a midway inspiration project for our 'Are we there yet?' challenge at A little Bit Crafty. I used Papermania All Aboard collection of papers and embellishments, a sentiment stamp and a canvas butterfly I made. I used a photo of a cat sleeping in a historical monument from an old holiday album and stamped an 'Enjoy the moment' sentiment in Stazon ink onto the All Aboard ribbon. I matted the photo on two colours of cardstock, then created my sketch using other papers from the set. I added a sentiment embellishment to the top of the photo. Lastly I added my butterfly which I made by cutting a butterfly out of canvas with a spellbinders die, colouring it with Mister Hueys ink and then stamping with stazon inks using a swirl stamp.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

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.
