How To Make A Beautiful Bracelet That is Quick and Easy

Charity here with a tutorial for how to make this beautiful bracelet that is quick and easy.  I love costume jewelry. When this fun piece showed up in a box from my Grandmother I knew right away it was destined to become something NEW!
~ Forget Me Not ~
 The bezels had a resin or epoxy substance with glitter in them. A bit of concentrated heat from the heat gun had them popped right out. They had yellowed and looked grimy. 
 Step 1: Dab the top of the bezel with pigment ink.
Step 2: Place paper over a lightly padded surface, press bezel onto paper.
Step 3:Cut out inside of inked frame to use for a pattern. Press into bezel to trim any high edges.
Step 4:Trace pattern onto reverse of Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock 
Step 5: Use a dab of ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to tack the paper down to the bezel.
Step 6:Pour gloss medium onto bezel, add Heart Dew Drops and two Black Diamond Dew Drops.
Step 7: Leave to cure for 24 to 48 hours.
To string the bracelet use elastic cord. Measure the width of the wrist plus one inch for tying fasteners. Bead, tie, and add fasteners to the ends.  
Wear your new bracelet or give as a gift.
This dramatic bracelet is sure to please where ever it goes!

How to make a quilted card using die cut hexagons





Today I am going to show you how to make a quilted card using die cut hexagons.  I love the look of patchwork and quilting but dont have the time or skills to create quilts so what better way to get the look than use your paper craft items.


I used the following items in my tutorial







I start by die cutting 10  purple hexagons and 7 of the Moss Green Glitter hexagons.


I am only using 2 additional embellishment, the die cut bike and a sentiment.


The sentiment has been stamped onto black card and embossed with white embossing powder.


I start by finding the center of my 5"x7" card blank and laying my first 3 hexagons on to it, I am going to use double sided tape to stick them down as it grabs instantly and wont move.


I then add purple hexagon around the green one to create a flower shape, I am leaving a small white border between each hexagon as it adds to the look and make the colours pop.


When we get to the edges of the card the hexagons will need trimming as they are to wide 


I turn the hexagon over and mark it with a pencil and ruler then trim with scissors


Again I have kept a white border at the edge of the card


I continued adding hexagons until the card was covered


I then added the sentiment strip and bicycle die cut. I love how fresh and clean this card turned out.

Simple and Easy Exploding Card


Hi everyone,
It's Angela here with a brand new card tutorial. Today I explain you how to make an exploding card. Are you ready? So, let's get started!
Starting with a square piece of paper, there are a few folds you have to make, the first is to fold the two diagonals,

like in the photos.

Third, fold in the middle, but on the other side of the paper.

Fold the crease made now on the opposite side, creating a triangle shape

Fold towards the middle the two extremities of the triangle

and fold the creases towards the inside.

Make the same with the triangle on the opposite side

You will end up with a final shape like this

The following step is not necessary, but I liked to cut a circle in the inside of the card.

Last, I glued  the folded card in the inside of the card made and I used a stripe of ribbon to keep the card closed.
