Shayla, I got a little with a Swirlydoos kit and then a scrap friend sent me a HUGE amount.

She said they have it at Michaels.

oh now that's just not fair that they're not out till November! those piercers look cool! and so many designs, I could probably retire all my bazzill templates.

I don't know if mine are new, but they're new to me! lol.

I like perfect pearls, just started experimenting with them.
I love making flowers. It's something simple I can do while watching tv with dh and I love how, since they're hand made, I can make them match any lo. I get my tutorials on YouTube.
I'm also liking stitching. I've done it by hand but I haven't tried machine yet. I'm nervous about messing up either the paper or my machine lol.

Nothing new. I just recycle old trends.

omg, stick pins are SO EASY to make!!!! you buy headpins, I like the 2.5 inch ones in the jewelry department of J's, about 2 bucks for a bunch,,,,then you buy beads, crystals, pearls, really anything you like,,,,,I buy bags of different toppers too,,,,,you put a tiny drop of glue on the top of the pin right below the head, thread the beads on in the order you want them on (the first one will stick to the glue) and then put another drop of glue right before you thread on the last one,,,,,

let dry, and VOILA,,,,stick pins!!!!

Here's a simple one,,,I'm getting better!

I've also strung beads on coil-less safety pins for a different kind of beaded pin,,,

the bottom left green card here has one of those,,,so pretty with pearls, etc,,,and if you have alcohol inks or markers, you can buy plain white anything and color them the color you want to,,,

one warning though, there's many kinds of "headpins",,,some of them have a hook at the top,,,I like the flat regular ones like on a regular old sewing pin. They do make fancy ones with beads already on the top (about 3 bucks for ten), but I'd rather put my own 'top" on them,,,,

OMG I probably even have headpins from my jewelry stuff! I am so not good about thinking how to reuse or recycle things I already have.

holly, the ones with the hook on it are probably "eyepins" rather than head pins.

when you say "toppers", is that what they're actually called or just what you use them for? where do you get those?

Just a big bead that you want to use for the top. My pins are about 3" long or so.

either a big bead you use for a top, OR they have these little,,,,,,,,caps. I am going today and I will find out EXACTLY what they are called,,,,but they are cupped so they fit right over a pearl or bead of the same size,,,,,or sometimes I buy like filigree silver beads for the top,,,,you can do whatever you like for the top bead though,,,,,my only issue is sometimes the hole in the bead is too large, and it would slide right off the pin, head or none,,,,,so I can't use those as a topper,,,,I can use them for subsequent beads though cuz the topper holds them on,,,,

I'm not a jewelry maker so I don't know what everything is called,,,,but I like the little flat things that you can put on to separate two pearls,,,,there's one in the stickpin on the wedding photo, between the two pearls,,,,

I like this thread so much better than the "hate" thread!!

I love:
flowers, inking, stickles, liquid pearls, & bling

Unfortunately, I am surrounded by males, so I try to find interesting ways to use those on my layouts.

I love stitching too..but the hand stitching with those Bazzill templates leaves me frustrated. I keep loosing my spot and the paper bends on me. Give me some tips am I doing something wrong??

And I'm really loving inking and chipboard pieces right now!

Holly I so want to make some stick pins...I've seen some and they are gorgeous!
