1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Knotted bracelets = awesome! on: September 07, 2011 08:22:50 PM
Over the weekend I learned to use my Knotty-Do-It-All board that I won from a Bend Trends blog post.  It's a really great tool and makes creating knotted jewelry a snap.  Here are the bracelets I've made so far. The other new thing for me is that I've started to try and name my pieces.  Hope you like them.

Fire - really like the way this one turned out but I'm a huge fan of red and black

Ice - I had clear glass chips that worked perfect for this one since they look like ice chips

Earth - this is the very first one I made

Kaleidoscope - this one really looks much better in person.  The picture doesn't show all the color and shimmer in the beads

Silverado - simple leather cord and nice silver beads

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Red Sparkly Awesomeness - Wedding Invitations on: April 02, 2009 05:30:57 AM
Posted this on the wedding board but since it's a papercraft figured I would post on her for all you fine folks to see.

Below are pictures of our wedding invitation.  I stamped and embossed the front and added the gems.  It was my first time embossing and I think it turned out pretty good but it sure was a mess to do.  I then just tied the ribbon in a knot.  A bow just wasn't going to give me the feel I wanted.  The inside is just printed out on our printer and cut out with decorative edge scissors.  Luckily I only had 23 to make becuase my hand was sore after cutting these out.  The enclosures are held in place by the ribbon.  The top one is the directions and some other information for our guests such as dress, pictures (our guests will be our photographers) and our guestbook which will be a scrapbook that we are asking them to bring pictures for. Oh and the picture on this is the barn we are getting married in and where the reception will be held.  The RSVP is just a card with a fancy border.  Since it's just family we've ask them to either call, email or respond on our website.  Saves the extra stamp.  So what do you think? 

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Red sparkly awesomeness - Our invitations on: April 02, 2009 03:11:45 AM
I've been a member of Craftster for some time and reply to many posts but this is my first official one.  Just had to share our wedding invitations.  Compared to others on here they are pretty simple but I love them.  They came out just like I'd hoped.  Our wedding will be very small, around 55 people and just family so I only needed to make 24.  It will take place July 18, 2009 in a refurbished barn in our hometown so it's informal. The invitations reflect this.  It's going to be so much fun and will fit us perfectly.  Of course I'll post pictures after. 

Here is the front of the invite.  I purchased blank red cards and stamped and embossed the front.  That was a messy process and it was my first time embossing so I think they came out pretty good.  I then added the rhinestones and the lace.  Sorry about the glare.  It's much prettier in person.

Here is the inside with the enclosures.  It's pretty simple.  I just created a document for the text in a nice font and printed it out at home.  Then used decorative edge scissors to cut them out.  My hand sure was sore after that.  The ribbon holds the enclosures in place.  The top one is the directions and other things our guests need to know.  The picture is of the barn where we are going to get married.  On the back is information about dress, pictures (our guests will be our photographers) and our guest book which will be a scrapbook I'm making and we are asking everyone to bring a picture of themselves or one of us with them.  I'll post pictures later of the scrapbook.  The RSVP card is just really simple.  Since it's all family we are saving ourselves the extra stamp and just asking everyone to call, email or use our website to RSVP.  It was a lacy border around it and I just printed them off on cardstock 4 to a page and cut them apart.

Let me know what you think!  Thanks for checking them out.
