Bead Tutorial

Good morning everyone!
Today we are showing you a bead tutorial by Jayne Mather, one of our talented DT ladies.

Isn't this stunning?
This Posy Box and necklace have all been made using the NEW Meerkat Madness paper crafting CD-ROM. The posy boxes are available as templates to print from the CD itself and here's how Jayne added those beautiful bead embellishments.

Step 1.
Choose 2 co-ordinating backing papers from the Meerkat Madness CD Rom and print on both sides of an A4 piece of white paper, (printing on the reverse will make it cost effective as you can get two completely different beads from one A4 sheet)

Step 2.
Measure at 2cm intervals and cut into long strips. Cut these strips in half (approx 10cm).
Using a pencil and ruler, place a mark at each side of your strip at 5cm and cut as shown to create a V shape.

Step 3.
Use the end of a brush (or similar) to roll each paper strip, securing with glue to create your paper bead.

Step 4
Start threading the beads onto wax cord, you could also use ribbon, leather, threads etc.

Each paper bead is separated using a small acrylic bead.

 Knot after each acrylic bead to secure in place. Once finished used your beads as part of your projects, embellish card fronts, create beautiful jewellery or add stunning decorations to your posy boxes.

Let's Get Stamping!

Good Morning from a sunny CCW HQ.

We hope you all have grabbed your 4 Day Deal. Today is the last chance to see the inspirational Lynda Chapman back on Create & Craft at 2pm and don't forget....if you order the 4 Day Deal you will be automatically put into a draw to win one of three hand painted, beautifully framed stamped collections by Pollyanna Pickering herself!

We thought we would share some stamping fun this morning, created by DT member Jayne Mather.
All of these makes have been made using our NEW "Hamish" Best of Breeds Stamp Collection.

The stamps themselves are manufactured in the UK from the highest grade, non-yellowing Photopolymer. Each stamp collection includes a whopping 10 individual stamps.

Suitable for both beginners or advance crafters and can be coloured using alcohol markers, water-colours etc. Use your masking techniques to create wonderful pictures, card toppers, tags....the list goes on.
Keep tuning in for our masking videos!

Look at how Jayne has used the stamps, very simply but just stunning!
Using one colour ink pad can be very effective! Look at that beautiful wreath effect created using just the small flower stamp.
There are so much detail in these stamps that you don't even have to colour them, simply stamp onto white card using a black ink pad and your done!

We love the patchwork background stamping using the small flower stamp and one of the grasses from the "Ben" Border Collie Collection.
The gate has been stamped and masked with added foliage and beautifully coloured.

Pop back tomorrow for some more stamping inspiration.

Look into my eyes!

Morning all,

I could not resist including this beautiful black Labrador puppy in the new paper craft collection. How can you ever resist those beautiful eyes? My niece has a black Labrador called Max and he is ever so naughty. This collection is fantastic if you are a dog lover but even if you are not I'm sure you will still love it. The colours are gorgeous. Apologies for the photography. I am no David Bailey as you can see but I try. Lynda's black card looks good with this don't you agree?

Pollyanna will be in the studio with me on Monday and I am so excited to hear about her upcoming trip to Borneo to see the Orang-utans up close and personal. Bless her they leave for Borneo on Tuesday so no time to chill..

Right I had better get back to creating. Have a lovely day folks and Merry Christmas.

Happy crafting,
