CHA 2015

I thought I might share a few of my creations for
Spellbinders' A Gilded Life's
booth at CHA's 2015 Mega Show
going on right now.

The party hat above was a tutorial I did last Summer
for a Spellbinder's blog hop.

This was a new hat created for CHA
using beautiful new trims from the collection.

This altered cabinet card features
new dies, trims, chains and THAT gorgeous heart pendant!

This blanket stitched heart 
features fabric and charms from last year's launch
and the new beaded chain. 

Love these little pin thingys!
This piece is made almost entirely from the collection,
the safety pin is the only add-on.

This little sacred heart piece was designed 
with the intention of tying it onto the neck of a Santos.
Imagine my delight,
I spied it in a facebook pic 
displayed exactly that way.
Shea and Debbie got it without my saying a word
- love that!

All of the products from
Spellbinders' A Gilded Life
are available for purchase 
and here.

Christmas Roses Get A New Life

"What is in a name?

That which we call a rose

by any other name would smell as sweet."

You may have noticed a little change to the way I sign my posts,
this is my first true for 2015!
