Inspirational November Recap

How did it get to be the end of November already?  Tomorrow will mark the first day of our glorious Australian Summer and with less than 4 weeks until Christmas, we have started to see a hype of activity taking place everywhere.  There's the wrap up of the school year, end of school concerts, work Christmas parties, carols by candlelight, Christmas shopping, sending out Christmas cards, decorating the tree and preparing for that well deserved summer holiday.  Woah, so much to do in such a small space of time!  I'm exhausted just thinking about it!

This month our featured product was the glitzy new Francheville Glitter.  Our design team just loved working with glitter and as you can see with all the projects, glitter has a remarkable way of adding that dazzling touch!  With the main theme across the month being Christmas, our team were able to inspire you with plenty of gorgeous decorative ideas to get you in the festive spirit  

Our beading designers were delighted to try out the new Seed Bead range from Just Bead It.  We had it all this month - necklaces, bracelets, earrings and even a beaded bag.  If you're a keen beader, then these awesome projects will make great gift ideas.  

So today, incase you missed any of the posts, lets recap on what our talented team achieved throughout November.  I have no doubt you will find tons of inspiration from these amazing projects.     


Long Summer Layered Necklace - Melody Gillespie

Today’s project is a simple but beautiful long and layered necklace created with some of the new Just Bead it range of seed beads. Christmas is on the way so I was keen to incorporate red into the design and the fun style of this piece is perfectly suited for the up and coming Australian warmer weather.

Love Bracelet - Melody Gillespie

My project today was inspired by two things - bead looming and some absolutely beautiful Native American beading patterns I saw the other day online. I also love the idea of graduated colours and using these gorgeous metallic seed beads from the new range I have created a deconstructed loom pattern stacked bracelet! 

Pearls and Gold Jewellery Set - Chez Mathieson

These JBH beads from Just Bead It, are just awesome to work with. This striking gold and pearl neckwear and matching earrings will add elegance to any outfit.

Beaded Knitted Bag - Chez Mathieson

Greetings everyone.  I am delighted to share my latest project in the Gift series. This bag was knitted then embellished with Just Bead It Seed beads and a strand from the JBH series. This was quick and fun project that is just perfect for that "hard to buy for" person (and lets face it, we all have one of those in our family!) Hope you all have as much fun as I did making this adorable knitted bag.


Glittery Christmas Inspiration - Teresa Horner

This month our team is getting started on lots of Christmas ideas for you.  My inspiration was from Santa of course so i grabbed lots of glitter paper in red, black, gold silver and green and few dies and this is what i came up with.  Easy peasy projects that you can decorate your tree with, cards and gift jars to fill with your favorite goodies!

Thanksgiving Inspiration with Glitter - Alicia Barry

Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is right around the least here in the States. I love this time of year, when we get to decorate the house for three months straight!
This month we are showcasing new Francheville glitters. I've used them in a couple of easy and simple ways on this project. 

A Glittery Star for Christmas - Christine Santos

Today I've got a glittery Christmas decoration to share with Francheville's range of Glitter Sets. I chose the assorted brights set with the White glitter to build upon my glittery star.

Glitter Christmas Tree Ornaments - Teresa Horner

t's time again to share another fun project that you can do for Christmas with lots and lots of glitter and a few things you can pick up from your local hobby store.  This year i wanted to add some ornaments to my trees that i made myself so i found these chipboard ornaments and thought how fun to cover them in glitter and add a few flowers to them.  Something easy and fun to do.

Decorative Glittered Pine Cone Wreath - Alicia Barry

Thanksgiving is finished here in The States, which means I have the official go-ahead to do all things Christmas. Today, I have used some new Francheville fine glitter to create a wreath for my front door. This is super cheap to make, as the kids and I collected the pinecones from the park on the way to school.

Scrapbook Layouts

I just love how you can use sentiments for so many things.  On my layout today I have used the 'thank you' sentiment usually reserved for a card as part of my title.  I then used the alpha set to finish off the title.  I love the white set of alpha stickers as it is so easy to customise the colour of the larger size letters. 


This month we are having some fun with the new Francheville Glitter Range.  They come in so many fun colours that I have had to delve into two sets! 
Did you know there's only eight more weeks until Christmas? Today I get to share with you my bright and glittery Christmas card which features Francheville's Bright Cardstock and Neon Glitter pack.
That's a wrap up and with November done and dusted, we look forward to December and all the fun projects in store for you.  It's certainly going to be a very busy month for everyone but always make some time for yourself to chill out and craft!!  Have a fabulous Christmas everyone.  Happy Crafting!!
