I took a deep dive down in my bead stash and found tons of things to use! All those boxes with left-over beads are now being made as decorations and embellishments for my layouts. I have this thing for seed beads – the smaller, the better! – and have used them to make “ribbons”, fringes and small flowers. And I can do it while watching tv…

Besides the beaded fringe I found a crocheted tablecloth and a flower made from polymer clay.

For this LO I made a three-bead netting:

I used Matsuno 11/0 beads in a lovely pinkish color that was perfect for the papers.

My favorite bead supplier is Zionesse – go check them out! They have everything you need to make lovely beaded embellishments, and some scrapbooking stuff, too! Put fast and friendly service to that, and that’s why they’re my favorites.

Now I have some more ideas on what to do with these small beads – so back to the working table while I watch Lie to Me…

Some LO’s I’ve made during the past year – very mixed!

What’s up and what’s down? The flower is from a Prima Mini-can and the leaf from an ordinary satin flower.

This PP is from Dovecraft, stickers from Bo Bunny, flowers from Prima. Hey, there’s a strange flower in there…

I have started an album for Kevin’s teacher, which will leave the class after three years. This is one of the LO’s from a Star Night they had last year. The K&Co paper went so well with the colors in the photo. The daisies are a BossKut original cut with the Gazelle, and the strange trimming is made with seed beads using a necklace pattern!

I get all my seed beads from my favorite bead supplier, Zionesse. They have everything I need for bead weaving. I’ve made a whole bunch of decorations using the left-over beads. A fun way to jazz up the pages!
