Happy Holidays!

Here are three Christmas cards made using some of my favorite embellies from Creative Charms.  I just love the blue Multi-layered Organza Flower from the  Dream Garden Collection and it immediately brought to mind a delicate snowflake for a Christmas card and I used it on all three cards.  On the "Sidestep" card I also used elements from the Seasonal Medley Collection Winter pack and the Gradient Gems.  On the "Triple Charm" card I again used the Gradient Jewels and Winter Medley pack.  On the "Joy Fold" card I used the Fab Brads in blue and the Winter Medley pack.  These cards were fun to make and are all 5 1/2" x 41/4" so they will fit in a standard size envelope.  Hope you enjoy them!

Thanksgiving Placecard

I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year and decided to create a placecard. It is going to look great at my place setting. I used Creative Charms Vintage Brads and a ribbon to accent the placecard. Thanks for taking a look.

Christmas Ornaments

Hello everyone. My name is Amy and I am new to Creative Charms. I just love their products and enjoyed creating these Ornaments.
This first one features two Vintage Velvet Poppies, 3 Vintage Brads and Gradient Jewels that outline the edges. There is an area to insert a photo. The metallic stock is Gemstones Blue Topaz. I also used an ivory ribbon & card stock.

This fun tag-type ornament features the Seasonal Medley Snowflakes, Fab Brads and Gradient Jewels. I also included 2 Braided Daisys, one of which is looped through the ring. The patterned paper is Bo Bunny. I stamped the Dear Santa and wish list using red inks. I finished it off with some ribbon on the ring.  
I hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by!

We're Back from CHA

Wow, what a trip. We'd like to thank all of the store owners who placed their orders on Sunday at the show. It was great seeing so many friends.

I also have a quick layout to share. I used Pink Paislee paper along with the Creative Charms Blooming Garden (SB-2010) pink felt butterfly sticker. As you can see, they are generous in size. I love felt, and these are just gorgeous.

A distinctive design best characterizes the look of the Vintage Brads. Each package contains elegant jewels in a color coordinated blend of shine and texture that is set in the center of an antique copper trim. These brads make your projects standout so effortlessly.

Vintage Brads coordinate beautifully with these and other Vintage products. Check out the lush velvet Vintage Poppies and other 3D vintage brads such as Baroque Flower, Butterfly Garden Medley or Antique Flower Medley.

Spring has Sprung!!

And what better way to celebrate than with these gorgeous butterflies from our Dream Garden collection.

I've just redecorated my craft room and I'm always looking for thrifty ways to decorate. I decided to make a whimsical wall hanging using the butterflies. I found a 4x6 frame at a discount store and painted it black. I took the glass out and replaced the backing with a really pretty piece of Webster's Pages paper. It goes perfectly with the Creative Charms butterflies. I distressed the paper a bit with some ink, then I used pop dots on the butterflies and adhered them to the paper. I placed it in the frame and now have a gorgeous wall hanging.

These embellishments are so versatile! I can't get enough. I also used them when I made this little friend tag booklet to give to a friend for her birthday.

On the cover I used 2 of our Itsy-Glizy gem embellishments plus I used 3 of Creative Charms Antique White Pearls. They come in "gradient" sizes, and these tiny ones were perfect for the cover.

On the inside, more gems from our Gem Stickers and more pearls. I even used a black gem for the eye on the bird. Another Dream Garden butterfly on the third page down, this time in white. The Creative Charms Dream Garden butterflies also come in light blue.

Vintage Velvet

I am in love with these vintage velvet flowers! They are so versatile! I recently did a scrapbook page using a red vintage velvet flower and I paired it with a paper flower. The paper flower was ho-hum, but once I added the Creative Charms vintage velvet flower it really sprung to life.

Here's a close up of the vintage velvet in action:

They come in 6 luxurious colors:

Also used in this layout are the Creative Charms Gem Stickers in Black. I used them right at the top above the yellow background flower. They are "Gradient" and come in sizes of 6, 5 and 3 mm. You get 76 gems!! Love these!!

Quick & Easy Spring BookMark

It's 5 pm and I needed to catch the 6:30 FedEx guy for a express package to my family oversea. I thought I could not send just a letter and should put some photos of my daughter too. Another thought followed: I could not just put a photo in the envelope and that's no presentation. So I went thru my stashes of photos frames and 30 minutes later I could not find a right sized frame. Thus, I dig in my scrapbooking stash and there is a solution.
I made this quick & easy spring bookmark with our new min Dream Garden sparkled butterfly and Countryside butterfly and some bling. The embellishment itself is so intricate and elaborate that I could get away with zero papercraft techniques.

It's so quick that I could make 8 of them. That will be enough for my realtives who all adored and spoiled my 4 year old daughter during our visit last year.
If you are short on time for a quick & easy gift, ... try this one. Did I mention I have fun playing too?

What's New!

Creative Charms has been very busy behind the scenes. We've added so many new products to our line of embellishments.

One of my favorites (and believe me I have many!), are these Blooming Garden felt stickers and brads. They also come in pink! So cute. They are part of our Spring Bouquet line.

Another one of my favorites, also a part of Creative Charms Spring Bouquet line, are these fancy felt flowers. Aren't they gorgeous???

I've paired up these great embellishments with some fun and funky paper to create this layout:
