A Special Project in Parisienne Blue

Good afternoon everyone hope you are well :-) I am here with the first one of my special notebook project I am doing with my friends. I have a notebook with messages from people I admire, friends etc and I thought it would be really nice to add to it as its my birthday soon. I wanted my friends to smile on my birthday too so I made a deal that I would write them a little note-something like our memories, why I love being friends etc and then they would do the same for me. That way everyone gets a nice positive message to brighten their day! :-)
For this particular one I used one of my favourite Stampin Up stamps which I stamped onto die cut ivory cardstock with Paris Dusk Memento ink, then paired this with Parisienne Blue papers and bow to decorate, and card candi in complementing colours. I havent shown the inside because the messages are very personal but I have decorated all the inside with the same papers and written the messages on the same die cut ivory cardstock.

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. 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…
