May Mayham | Card Inspiration

All throughout May it was card mania where we showcased an array of stunning card projects to inspire you.  Additionally we released our latest eBook #4 - Card Inspiration; where we have compiled just some of the many card creations our design team have created.  You can download it at the end of this post or via our website. 

We also launched our new Bella! Winter collection which we're super excited about.  We believe you're going to fall in love with our new paper ranges and our design team can't wait to showcase their projects featuring these gorgeous collections throughout June!  

We've created a collection that is intune with where people are at in their lives right here and now.   We've given the papercrafter a base to begin and  build upon to create their own special time pieces that interprets the emotions felt and celebrates the good times!  You maybe at that time in your life where the world is calling you for an adventure?  Perhaps you've celebrated one of life's wonderful milestones? Maybe you know a millennial who just loves to take selfies or a little super hero who is itching to show you how brave they are?   Our new Winter collection promises to inspire and ignite the creative mind from within.  Read More....

This month our Just Bead It designer created a stunning beaded necklace inspired by the earthy tones of Autumn and Winter which features our natural stone bead range (JBNS series).  Dominique takes you step by step on how to recreate this little gem.  Take a look at her tutorial below.

Earthy Bronze-toned Multistrand Beaded Necklace by Dominique Marando

I will be showing you how to make an earthy multistrand necklace, using an assortment of the lovely Just Bead It beads. For this design, I wanted the three strands to have a cascading effect of varying lengths,to really highlight the bronze-toned and green gemstone beads in each strand. I hope you enjoy!

A Birthday Card to Enjoy Everyday by Raelene Coussens

My sister in-law's Birthday is coming up so I decided to make a quick handmade card to send to her.  First I double checked with my brother in-law that her favourite colour hadn't changed and he told me it is now red, I thought it was pink, oh well.  She is into positive quotes so I instead of the usual happy birthday I decided to look through my Ruby Rock-It and Bella stash for a quote that could work on a card.
