Due to popular demand...swivels continued!

Ok...I got the message loud & clear that lots of you have the swivels, but haven't used them yet.

Here's a few ideas to get you started...

For those of you taking my "Use Your Scraps Fragments Journal" class...you can use the swivels to personalize your journal. USE those charms & trinkets you've been hoarding. Get them out & ENJOY them...don't leave them sitting in a drawer.



I used a swivel to "label" a piece of art I made for Maya Road's booth @ CHA.


And again...I used one with a Memory Frame from Ranger, to jazz up my CHA demo tags. If you haven't played with the Memory frames yet...they are REALLY fun. Hmmm...might be an idea for a post some day...



And I saved THE BEST for last.

These were designed by KAREN MORIKAWA (aka keychain) and were the make & takes for the Advantus booth @ CHA this summer. These are to die for cool!!!

Karen is a jewelry geuius. She wears THE COOLEST watch...with a band that she made from Idea-ology bits & pieces. Hmmm...maybe she'll send me a photo & I'll show you!

Take a look @ what she designed...



So there you have it...4 ideas to jump start your creativity. Just get the swivels out & PLAY!

Now about all those embossing folders...........

I ended up with the "Big Kick" machine. I went with the intention of getting the Cuttlebug...but the cute gals talked me into buying the Big Kick... I tried it...I LIKE IT!! I also got a few big dies to cut grungeboard...yep...the dies are...

flowers...

I swear I'm addicted!

Come back tomorrow...

Debby Lewis will be the "guest artist"... with a really fun layout.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wendy...I'm counting the days until you come to SC! I'm going to be in heaven for two days taking your classes.

I love KAREN MORIKAWA work. She allowed me to make two necklaces at CHA: one for me and one for my son. He loves and thinks it makes him very cool.

Thank you for being such a blessing.

I did only a couple of make-n-takes at CHA but this was my favorite! I've actually worn it a lot!
