Welcome to our first Memories Always-Forever blog hop!! We are so excited to introduce our site and our Design Team to you!!
(If you arrived here any way other than from our blog hop, please go back to the MAF homepage to start at the beginning of the hop.) My blog is the last blog before you get to go to MAF, and register for a chance to win the GRAND PRIZE! But, before you go, take a few minutes to check out my blog today! I have some eye candy, and some blog candy to give away!
Memories Always-Forever (MAF) has been created as a place where members can rally together as a crafting community, showcase their crafting talents, share their ideas, learn, and participate in exciting challenges. Our Design Team is here for you – to provide inspiration, to answer questions, or even just chat!!
Today, as part of our first Blog Hop, I am offering this awesome prize, which includes some of the new line of patterned paper by Basic Grey – “Lemonade”! I’ve also thrown in a bunch of co-ordinating cardstock, glitter cardstock, bling, chipboard embellishments, rubons, gems, Primas, and ribbon!
I am thrilled to be a part of the MAF Design Team! I am the Co-Ordinator for the Cards/Stamping DT, and the Beading DT! The cards/stamping design team has some awesome challenges scheduled for the month of August and beyond! I will be hosting “card tag” twice a month, Deanne will be offering sketch challenges, Sheshe will be challenging you to use fun (and maybe unusual) items on your cards, Deb will be hosting a game of card bingo, and Heather will be hosting technique challenges! And, that’s just in the month of August!
The beading DT and I will be sure to inspire you to use jewelry findings on your cards, or to use your beads in the traditional ways! 🙂
So, in the spirit of beading and cardmaking/stamping, here are a couple of projects I completed recently.
I tried to showcase both of my passions – for beading/jewelry making, and cards/stamping. I’ve been using charms, and beads on my cards lately, and love the effect!
Here’s another sample of a couple of cards I made, using charms, and beads:
Okay, so I don’t just use charms and beads on my cards. I also love to make wearable art, in the form of jewelry! Take a look at a couple of projects I completed recently:
