A Gift of Bling & Beauty

I have just returned from the inaugural Close To My Heart Leadership Conference here in Australia and felt very blessed and honoured to be asked to present some creative sessions. I LOVE being a part of this amazing company which truly has a caring nurturing, encouraging and appreciative of it's crafting community.

This is one of the projects I shared at the conference, a pocket card and insert created to showcase the awesome Base & Bling range of wearable craft. I am very addicted to making these "one of kind boutique style pieces of jewellery" and they make a perfect gift for family and friends.

This card was so much FUN to make and Close To My Heart has everything you could possibly want to make your "Projects Sparkle" - Shimmer Trim, Sequins, Trinkets & Charms, Sparkles & Gems and so much more...the magic of this project comes from all the added "bling and beauty" - and I am going to enjoy giving it to my Mum for Mother's Day - I know she is going to LOVE it!

The little girls in your life will also enjoy receiving this unique hand made gift or even making it for their friends - it is very cute when pieced together with the Lollydoodle Assortment.

It was a little difficult to photograph this 3D project to really show you how the jewellery insert fits inside the card. Therefore, I thought you might like to see the 2 pieces separated - the insert actually fits snuggly and sits right at the bottom edge of the card pocket - the only piece visible then is the top of the chain. I would love to share how to make this card with you - contact me to find out my class schedule and I am also happy to visit with your crafting group and share this great gift idea with them too.

Stay tuned over the coming days and weeks and I will showcase some more of the projects I created and shared at the Leadership Conference.
