Friday Freebie!

Hello friends
Friday wouldn't be Friday without something special... so instead of a Friday Die Day this 
week I'm doing a 'Friday Freebie'.
I wanted to share with you a tag - a simple design featuring Jewel Flowers and Flourishes,
stamp by The Artistic Stamper and a small bronze bezel.

I wanted to show that bezels can be used for all sorts of things, and can be filled with all sorts of things.
In this one I've placed a small piece of felt and a tiny flower. 
I've also nipped off the loop at the bottom, it can be done very easily with pliers.

I'm putting together a little goodie bag of bezels for a lucky crafter.
Just leave a comment and I will insist Bella returns to work and picks out a winner.
In between, in my Amazon shop I've uploaded lots of Media Mixáge goodies and new Die D-Lites too.  
Just click on the link in the sidebar.
Also, please remember you need not buy through Amazon - more than happy if you would like
to purchase direct.

Other news: no cooking tonight - takeaway!  
Friday nights always feel a little more special than any other night.
Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Christine, these bezels look interesting and you don't need the melrpot to use them. Lovely tag. We are the same on a Friday, takeaways rule.

Hi Christine,
I love your tag, the bezels are something I'm going to have invest in next I think. Along with all the other millions of crafting goodies I need, it never ends. Our takeaway day is Saturday, I just love not having to think about cooking. What to have though? Chinese or Indian, then which restaurant to get it from? Decisions! Hope you enjoy yours, and have a lovely weekend.

Beautiful tag - Not seen those dies used before - they are GORGEOUS!

Hi Christine

Love your tag (as always!) and your goodie bag sounds good! I'm certainly warming to the Mixed Media items as they're definitely something outside my comfort zone!

Today I'm going to my local craft shop for a colouring class with Alexandra Kamann, which I'm looking forward to.

Enjoy your takeaway and have a lovely weekend.

Clai01 said...

What a lovely tag, It's very pretty.
The idea of the bezels is very appealing to me as I like to make my own embellishments and the shapes look fantastic.
I also like how the dies co-ordinate. Thanks for sharing this idea and for stocking them Christine.

Sandra said...

Morning Friend,
I bet I know were that flower is from........homespun by any chance? Haha
That is a lovely idea and looks so pretty.
Which kind of takeaway do you all enjoy on a Friday night? I agree with idea of Friday night feeling more special, more so if Paul is not working the weekend, it just signifies the start of some good family time I think!
I am having such gun with my melt pot and bezels, could you please show more detail of the moulds that you have??
Have a lovely weekend Christine,
Huge hugs
Sandra xxxx

Rita said...

Hope you have a lovely weekend

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Christine,
Just popping by to say Hi but please DO NOT enter me in the draw.
I have the dies you used here and they are fabulous. I have used them on Christmas tags and cards too and they look wonderful.
I have a tip for you and your blog friends if I may, layer several of the flowers together and curl the petals fairly tightly using a cocktail stick. Starting at the center make each flower slightly looser so you end up with rows of curls. It makes a fabulous and very different flower, and if done very tightly it makes a lovely center for a larger flower too.
Blessings to you and your family. Love Linda x

Ann said...



Hi Christine

Beautiful tag I do love your tags they are always so pretty. Clever idea using a bezel I just got a magazine today and they had bezzels and it was filled with paper a tiny photo and tiny buttons that looked lovely too. I really like the way you have filled yours such a pretty little flower and felt is one of my fav. things thankyou for your inspiration. I would love to go into the draw.

Enjoy your take away so nice on a Friday.

Hugs Annxx

Pretty tag and love the use of the bezel. Thanks for the chance to win xx

Bea said...

Hi Christine love today's project. I haven.t tried the Michael yet but like using utee so I think that can be used in a bezel although I haven't tried it as I usually stamp into it. Have a good weekend.

AnneRD said...

Hi Christine
A lovely tag and great use of the bezel, will have to get some of these. Anne

Toni said...

Hello Christine, bit late with my post on this one. Love the tag and think the bezels could be so useful for all sorts of projects. Thank you for the giveaway once again.
Hope you are all having a good family weekend.
Toni xx

Hi Christine,
Have been trying to join your site so I can post comments rather than email. I thought I had managed it but encountered a problem. So don't think you got my last post. Love the Tag and the way you have used the bezel. Have got myself a meltpot as I understand that if you put UTEE into the bezels, the shape pops out when dry so you can use the bezels to make shapes as well as sticking the shape back in and using the bezel on your special cards. I'm probably too late for the draw but hope I've cracked the messaging thing. Have a lovely weekend. Gemma C xx

Michelle Lock said...

Hi Christine
Love your pretty tag and love those Jewel flowers. x

Hi Christine - I'm a day late this week reading your blog, but I hope not too late for Bella's draw of the giveaway. Love the use of the bezel and the tag is very attractive. Hope you enjoyed your take-away (Indian or Chinese)? and are having a lovely weekend.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Christine, I have been away for nearly 3 weeks so just catching up with your blog. You seem to be having so much fun and that's fantastic. Glad Harry Potter went well and congratulate Elliot on his post, what a mature young man he is.
Will have to get back into "craft" mode now I am back.
Take care
