Here's a layout of my first family reunion with all my husbands' relatives. What a memorable day!
I used AMM papers and stickers. I stamped the letters using PM foam stamps and Versamark color in olive green. I also punched some of the stamped letters using a circle punch and added some faux stiching. Thank you for your comments!

One of my favorites is this butterfly which has a beaded body. I made the wing using 3mm quilling papers, 24 gauge wire for the body and beads. I also tried a little bit of doodling on this card. Thank you for your comments.

I thought using polymer clay or Sculpey were materials that only people with good hand skills were able to work with. After having a go at it and using the right tools I can say that they're not as dificcult to shape and I'm pleased with the results. I used a bead roller to have beads of the same size. Once I finished all my beads I baked them for around 25 minutes and them usising head pins I connected then to the thong. I also used plastic leaves and wire to wrap the heart as it didn't have any holes on it. Thank you for your comments and have a nice weekend!

Pensé que el usar la arcilla moldeable o Sculpey eran materiales que solo personas con bastante habilidad en las manos podian usar. Despues de haberlos probado y utilizado las herramientas apropiadas puede decir que np es tan dificil moldearlos y estoy complacida con los resultados. Usé un molde para perlas para que todas sean del mismo tamaño. Una vez que terminé de hacer todas; las horneé por aproximadamente 25 minutos y luego las conecte a la tira de cuero usando alfileres. Tambien use hojas de plastico y alambre para envolver al corazón ya que no tenia agujero. Gracias por sus comentarios y que pasen un lindo fin de semana.

I had a go at using Sculpey which is very similar to polymer clay/Fimo and made this cats, bears and beads using cutters. I used beads for eyes and add more detail to the faces by using a pin. Finally baked them for 20 minutes. Thank you for your comments.

Probé el material que le llaman Sculpey que es bastante parecido a la arcilla moldeable/Fimo e hice estos gatitos, oso y piedritas usando cortadores.

Some colourful jewelry I've made recently using candy cane glass beads, pink cord,ribbon and metalic beads. I just knotted the cord to hold the beads in place for the necklace and bracelet. I added bows on the bracelet to keep the strands of knotted candy canes in place.

Estas son las ultimas piezas de bisuteria que he hecho ultimamente usando perlitas candy cane, cordon rosado, cinta y piedritas metalicas. Simplemente anudé el cordon para sostener las piedras en el collar y pulsera. Le puse lazitos a la pulsera para mantener a las tiras anudadas con las piedras en su lugar.
