Let's get started. I used our newest artbooking cartridge to cut out the leaves and the tree layover. I decorated it with paper cut out leaves and out stickease for Huntington. This layout was inspired by an artist at Convention this summer. Plus I did a little bonus card too (I did it earlier for another swap but it is done using the left overs from this layout).

Base & Bling

 So I got the necklace kit which comes with a metal necklace that is blank.
 I used a red base & bling adhesive dot to add a square of fabric that I then trimmed into a circle.
 Next I twisted a piece of 10" x 2" fabric into a spiral on top of the adhesive dot while still on the carrier sheet.
Then I removed the whole thing from the sheet and tucked the tail under to stick to the dot before attaching it to the middle of the necklace.
Next on top of the fabric circles I create I folded more circles in half and added some red tape, then folded in 4th before adding to the circle. I repeated this 8 times.
 I then added other bling from the kit to finish off the necklace.
Using the same quartering circle technique I created these other pieces. I added velcro to the base 1.25" circle so I could switch out the tops. They are also magnetic.
  Create Rings, Bracelets, Headbands, Clips, and Necklaces! So easy and quick!

If you have come from Kristin's blog, you are on the right track.

I choose a thanksgiving stamp perfect for the fall! Here is the card I made that I was pretty proud of. I used the burlap ribbon, the zipstrip, some cricut shapes, a wooden button I stamped and colored as a pumpkin, and sparkles.

Thank you for stopping by, now hop on over to Shirley's blog.
