May Flashback

May Flashback

Today marks the the first day of the Australian Winter. Whilst I am very much a Summer girl at heart, I don't mind that Winter is upon us.  The Winter's here on the east coast of Australia bring with it perfect blue skies, crisp fresh air, warm wintery sunlight during the day and clear starry skies at night.  

This month our Design team showcased lots of sparkly bling in their projects.  It was wonderful to see how spectacular a piece of work can become just by adding bling.  I love reflecting back on the past 4 weeks as it reminds me of just how much our team have achieved....not to mention how creative and talented they all are.  But I don't really need to tell you that, let the results speak for themselves.....

Just Bead It

Oceans are for Dreaming

Melody created a timeless and classic piece with a mix of turquoise and silver that compliments each other beautifully.

Autumn Sunrise

This stunning seedbead bracelet created by Chez was inspired by the rich earthy tones of fallen Autumn leaves and the gorgeous Autumn sunrise.


Sparkle and Shine

As it was all about Bling in May, Melody designed this elegant glittery bead necklace.  Oh so gorgeous.

Autumn Bloom Wrist Wear

Chez used the morning sunrise over her garden as inspiration for this stunning bracelet.



Bling it On

Beck went all out on Bling to create this sweet card perfect for any occassion.

Fun Birthday Card

Christine had a lot of fun creating this cheeky birthday card for her great grandmother.  Its' humorous tag line and bright colours make it a stand out card for someone special who loves a good laugh.

Say Thank You with Bling

Alicia designed a matching set of cards featuring bling (of course) and the New York Paper collection from Bella.  

Father's Day Card with a little Bling

Alicia's use of black rhinestone bling creates a bold statement without all the glitz and sparkle. Making it a very effective and eye catching masculine card.

Scrapbook Layouts

Wedding Memories with Bling

Teresa showed us how easy bling can add really pretty detail to a simple and quick page.  

Check out this matching card Teresa put together with the bits and pieces she had  leftover.

Better 2Gether | Spring Inspired Layout

Spring has well and truly arrived in the USA so Christine used this as her inspiration for this pretty layout filled with Pink Bella Florals.

Pretty n Pink Bling Layout

Pink, Bling and florals are so sweet together as demonstrated by Beck in this adorable layout.

Our Family Memoirs

Teresa shared a fun project to do for those who like to save special pictures and memories of their family but need a special place to store them.  


In addition to this gorgeous keepsake, Teresa also created a journal to keep inside and a matching photoframe.  What a beautiful idea!


Spotlight on the Design Team

This month we caught up with the lovely Christine and Chez to chat about their passions, inspiration and motivations in life.

Chez Mathieson - Just Bead It

We welcomed Chez to the Design team only a few months ago and she has blown us away with her amazing talent - turning humble beads into works of art.  This month we got upclose and personal with the face behind these gorgeous and unique jewellery creations.

Christine Santos - Ruby Rock-it Designer

This month we caught up again with the lovely Christine where she shares her top tips, the top five things she is passionate about and what motivates her in life. 

As I say every month, we always aim to inspire others so I hope we were able to do just that.  June has arrived which signals the start of summer vacations for some and cold cosy nights for others. Wherever you are in the world, we wish you a wonderful month ahead and look forward to checking back in soon. Christine is up on the blog next, so make sure you check out her Bubble Fun Layout.  

Until next time - Happy Crafting xxx
