New! I've been busy...

Hello friends

So here's something new, Creative Pins.
I hinted about these a while back and here they are!
Way back in 2001 (before I even knew what die cutting was),
I ran a bead business.  Recently I wondered how I could combine my 
love of beads with cardmaking and realised Creative Pins were the way to go.
So here is my first set, consisting of four pins,
blue, pale green, bronze and purple.


I have handmade them all using high quality beads,
all glued into place so no stray beads! 


I also created the boxes to keep them in. 
That kept me quiet for a few days! 


And here's a card project using Mistletoe Gatefold and the blue pin.



Of course they are not limited to cardmaking/scrapbooking,
they can also be used on coats, jackets and bags.

Creative Pins are now available on the website here,
there is limited sets as I'm handmaking them all and I had forgotten
how time consuming beadcraft is!
I've really enjoyed revisiting beads and I'm now on a mission to
get everyone pinning! 

Take care friends, please stop by tomorrow for Giveaway Day.

Wow, you have been busy. Gorgeous beads and box Christine is there no end to your talents. The beads are fantastic as is the packaging, loving the card too. Pins were all the rage several years ago and seem to have fallen out of fashion glad you are giving them a comeback xx hazel
