Weekly Update ... part 2 !

I'm back with more .... paper, beads, crystal skulls, awesome new earrings anyone can make, and more.


First up is this cute 6x6 paper pad from Authentique. Perfect for a quick little camping album !!

New from Fab Scraps ... this paper will be very popular with horse lovers as well as those who like Tim Holtz style projects and vintage  ... and those who love BOOKS !!

And I have received another shipment of Graphic 45 Botanical Tea, as well as Good Ol' Sport ( the plaids) and By the Sea. But this will probably be all that I can get ... most of what I bought was the last in stock. So don't wait if you want more !

Some great new beads arrived this week :
 * Glass Pearls galore ... 6mm and 8mm strands as well as strands that are 10mm-16mm mixed.      Gorgeous colours !

These strands are graduated 10mm to 16mm - perfect fro chunky bracelets or graduated necklaces.
Get all the sizes you need in just one strand !!
Even navy pearls !
They look more navy in real life ... lol.
And then these new retro/vinatge coloured glass beads - 6mm and 8mm. The colours are amazing !!

Here's something interesting ... a wooden clasp for multi strands !

Now for the **SPARKLE** !!!!!!!
These connectors are sooooo pretty !
They have a hole top and bottom so you use them as a focal point in a bracelet or necklace OR use it as a pendant and then hang beads from the bottom.
Great prices too ... 18mm $2.99 and 24mm $3.99

Now the SKULLS from Swarovski - exquisite !
The details are amazing.

I have 13mm skulls for $12.99 in clear AB and Astral Pink. They would make great earrings.
And then the 19mm in clear Ab - a great pendant !
More colours coming soon.
The other new & very exciting thing is the INTERCHANGEABLE EARRINGS.
All you need to make these are your fingers. The forms are hinged so you open them, add beads, and snap them shut ! Change the beads as many times as you wish.  Just $4.29 pair.

I'm not adding photos as they don't photograph that well but they are so useful ! Use them as stickers, apply to cardstock or watercolour paper and colour them with Copics or other markers, or glitter them like I did at Easter and colour. Or just apply glitter in various colours. There are so many ways to use them !
I have a lot of flowers, cars & vehicles ( great for masculine cards), Asian themes, birds, butterflies, still life designs, Christmas, etc... I also have a good variety of sheets of sentiments - birthday, anniversary, sympathy, Christmas as well as sheets of assorted greetings & sentiments - perfect for cards. Watch for samples.
Well, I think that's all for today ... I still have this week's kits to assemble, so I better get going !
Please stop in and enjoy your long weekend !!
