Designer Tag Challenge My Creative Time

Hi! Everyone.
     I am entering the tag challenge over at My Creative Time. The requirements are that the tag must be 4x6 or larger, any theme and include MCT stamps or dies. My Halloween tag measures 4x6 and I used MCT polaroid die from Just Simply Live. The papers I used are from MME Haunted.

     I made the charm using Tim Holtz trinkets and charm holder. I also made the bead dangles. The center embellishment is from EK Success and the spider web brad is Spare Parts from Paper Studio. The ribbon and bling I bought at Tuesday Morning. I used the alphabet from the stamp set for the sentiment which I distressed and crinkled for dimension. I used Glossy Accents to outline the die.

    I wanted to make this for Halloween before it's over. I like the way it turned out. Hope you all have a Happy Halloween. Be safe and have fun.

    Bye Bye for now, Kim

Stick Pins

Hi ! Everyone.
This going to be a short post. I've been trying a lot of new crafting ideas lately. First it was mini albums which I am still hooked on. But since I have been making them I have started making stick pins and charms to go on them. I had to learn some jewelry making skills, but it turned out to be really easy. Of course You Tube helped.

Here are some stick pins I made.

I also made a beach theme set for a swap at 2 Shabby Sisters Studio.
I love Graphic 45 papers. This is from On the Boardwalk. I will be making  more stick pins to go on my projects. I just need to build up my bead stash. I have looked on several sites for supplies but not sure which ones to use. If anyone has some suggestions on sites for beads and jewelry making give me a shout.

Next time I will post some charms. I will be making some to go on Christmas albums which I will be making.
I need to locate some Christmas themed charms.

Well that's it for today. Leave a comment if you have suggestions or just want to add your 2 cents.
Happy crafting and Bye Bye for now.
