With a small piece of 22-gauge jewelry wire, I create an earring hook and then threaded the seashells and seahorse beads from the Summer Medley collection on them, along with a few clear seed beads. I love the breezy, beachy feel of these earrings!
For this second pair, I used the Pure Blossoms in Amber, wiring them together and then attaching them to a french wire.
Finally, I created a sparkly hair barette by using three of the largest Pure Blossoms in Green, topped with a large gradient gem sticker in the center of each:
I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to secure the gems to the metal barrette. It's the perfect accessory for any little girl that loves sparkle!

Sometimes you just want to do something special for your friends - spoil them with a little treat and present it beautifully. These purse shaped bags decorated with Creative Charms bling are just the thing!
The bags were cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge with the Cricut Expression electronic die cuttting machine. I used Core'dinations gemstone cardstock. The garnet and turquoise cardstock coordinate perfectly with the pink and blue radiant sequin flowers from Creative Charms.
The bags make cute table favors for a luncheon. I used all three sizes of the gradient gem stickers on the handles. These gem stickers find their way onto most of my projects lately. They are available in so many colors, very easy to use and they stay stuck down. If your friends have been extra good, you could fill their bags with Creative Charms embellishments!
If you'd like more details about making the gift bags and some hints for assembling and decorating them, please visit my blog, Capadia Designs.

I love this large flower stamp from Papertrey Ink, and it is just perfect for a gradient gem brad center! I also added the fun fancy polka dot ribbon to give a finished look to the front panel (I really think I need this ribbon in every available color!) and added a little more bling to the sentiment with the gradient gem stickers.
The other pair of cards features the pretty flower grouping made up of vintage flower brads. Again I added that adorable ribbon, this time in green, and the gradient gem stickers.
Finally a pretty little gift set needs some pretty packaging to give it in, don't you think? So I re-purposed a plastic case that a stamp set came in (perfect for this!) and added some embellishments to coordinate with the card set:
I love that the cards are visible through the packaging, and I think that pretty little vintage butterfly brad is just the right finishing touch!
I hope you've enjoyed this project and been inspired! Have a wonderful, crafty and creative day!

Hey everyone! Today I am gearing up for what's supposed to be the hottest day of the summer yet and after a trip to the pool, I plan to settle in to the air-conditioned office and scrap. On my work table are some of the fabulous embellishments in July's Deal of the Month. The summery, beachy elements are just perfect for this time of year! They inspired me to create this simple sand-and-surf themed card with some of the goodies:
I used rows of scalloped cardstock topped with gradient gems for the sky, layered teal mulberry paper for the waves, and torn kraft cardstock for the sand. I strung the sea-themed charms on thread stitched it to each edge of the card and topped the sand with the glittering amber flowers.
Hope your Tuesday is filled with sunshine (and a little scrapping too!)
