Simply Adorned Jewelry

This is a Simply Adorned necklace that I made myself, finally! I really wanted to dress up the chain a bit, so sewed on Buttons, and tied on some ribbon. The letter monogram inside the lock is "Lovely Letters" set as posted below, I put a"B" on the front for me and a " R" on the back for my husbands name. I love the colors, creme, brown, turqouise and white,I used the champagne shimmer paint inside on the letter. It really looks nice against a pink blouse that I have. This item is # 116797 1x1 locket $ 17.95, and the chain is # 116800  24" length $10.95. The lockets and chain come in other sizes as well. The 1/8 " ribbon is from the Summer Mini Catalog, in many other colors too!  Order from my website http://www.bridgetmartinelli.stampinup.net/ send me a picture of your necklace, oh, I almost forgot, they have bracelets too, you can email them to me . nosemartinelli@sbcglobal.net

Workshop June 22,2010 Summer Mini Catalog

Here are my guests for the Summer Mini Catalog 4th of July & Last Chance celebration.  We had a great time, it is so much fun to see everyone put their own spin on their artwork. I especially enjoyed the girls, we learned lots from them.

We started out talking about "Last Chance " Stamp sets and the sale items. I showed them some of the "New" colors by making 4 samples using the cardstock that was sent to me. I used a retiring set #111490 "Bloomin' Beautiful" I got this set because of the adorable bee and the potted hydrangea plant. The other stamp used is from the New Summer Mini  All A Flutter butterfly it is only $ 6.95.

This is the 4th of July card # 120063"July "Fourth", also used the large wheel # 118622 "Red, White, Blue". I loved how this card came out.. Night of Navy, and Crumb Cake cardstock.   I also showed them some of the retiring stamp sets and Sissix die cuts and ribbon, which some took advantage of ordering before June 30th.
The card on the left above is made with the Two-Step set #111578 " Flower Fancy and the background flower from #111490" Bloomin' Beautiful". Retired Green galore paper and razzleberry ribbon, "Irridescent Ice" glitter. This was a lot of fun to see the variations that they made. And they got so excited about the glitter!  The Bird lattice card to the right is done with the retired set # 113074 "Spring Song" the lattice die for the "Big Shot" cuts out perfectly. This was a really easy card that has a lot of elegance to it..

I made some apricto jam and decorated it using the adorable alphabet set #115030 "Lovely Alphabet"
paper doily, tangerine orange paper circle and ribbon to tie all together.    I went to a baby shower this past month, I used the Large Wheel # 118621 "Baby Tees" from the Summer Mini Catalog, I colored it in with markers and wheeled in Razzleberry ink, used the "Lovely Alphabet" to spell BABY, I rolled the T'Shirt again on a strip of paper to wrap around a set of onsies that were inside a tulle bag that I had made, tied off with ribbon.. The card was made using retired DSP paper and the stampset # 113500 Fun & Fast Notes", scallop punch, ribbon to complete the gift.  I love this set "Fun & Fast Notes" it has all occasions from baby, wedding, get well , thanks, birthday, and thanks. A great set to add to your collection and is still available in the new catalog.
You can see all of this on my website, you can order 24/7 through my site, or call me if I can be of any help to you. http://www.bridgetmartinelli.stampinup.net/
