The Great Gatsby in 1925. The world seems to have gone Gatsby crazy at the moment, heck even I seem to be sporting a Carey Mulligan pixie style. With this in mind this month's Crafty Creatives box was just the ticket.
Welcome to all things Glamour.
So what did we receive this month?
This month's Kit is a beaded hair clasp, which I am quite excited for. As I am off to the wedding tomorrow and I am not one for hat wearing I thought this would be perfect, and the colour fits in exactly with my frock, who'd have thought it?
More beads, I'm not sure if I received the Vintage Rose or the Light Rose but either way these are such a beautiful shade of pink. They even came in a little velvet pouch so if you found something beautiful to add them to and wanted to gift them, you have the perfect item. It's not often you get given genuine Swarovski (well I don't any way.)
Stamping is something that I have just started looking into, and it really isn't as easy as it looks. The combination of this delicate lace pattern and the beautiful silver pad will make a wonderful addition to either wedding accessories or a contemporary winter/Christmas card.
There were a few other 'bits' in the box, The base of most of the photos was this sumptuous black velvet and a whole FQ there will be lots of things I can use that for. Also included for our craft stash some Photo Glue from Stix 2 and some silver coloured earring findings and jump rings. I really must just bite the bullet and make some jewellery, I have so many ideas but too scared to jump in.
Here are a couple of photos of my finished hair clasp. I deviated from the instructions that were given as I made a little boo boo (kids, remember to center your filigree so you have enough felt ALL the way round) and because it looked a little empty on top I added some of the fluffy trim to even it out.
Now I have my hair clasp, I am going to grab my liquid eyeliner and red lippy and head to the opera.
