Well, I thought I’d give it a go and subscribe… I usually don’t use clubs as I have a very special style – I only like shabby chic and vintage – but as I said I thought I’d give it a try. I was very pleased with two of the packages, disappointed with one and one was OK, but not more. I use the things I like and give the rest to the kids. The following pictures shows a bit of what I’ve accomplished with the packages so far.

If I have used material not included in the kits, it’s stated under the pictures.

Pink, I think…

In this house it’s not easy to avoid pink. With two daughters and two granddaughters there ought to be a lot of pink! And it seems like they all have this color as their favorite.

I had great fun with the chipboard die-cut (Ellison ornament) when I was about to cover it with something. I started with covering it with KlaeberFix, and after about 30 minutes I sprinkled UTEE Britez Fuchsia over it. Just sprinkled, not covered. Heated and melted the UTEE and found out the KlaeberFix was still tacky! So I put some Doodlebug Velvet between the UTEE speckles and ended with a lovely structure.

I have recently taken up beading again – just making embellishments, not jewelry. This net is a 3-bead basic net made with Matsuno 11/0’s.

One of the flowers is also a beaded creation, a bit tricky to find out how to make it so a tutorial will be posted later!

Some beaded flowers here, too. The princess crown is from Panduro (sale buy) and painted with Ranger Crackle Paint. Love this…
