A couple of months ago, my dear friend Jenn invited me over to join Crafter's Digital Art Center (CDAC) and particpate in a beaded stickpin swap. The swap was to make pins in spring colors to be used to decorate cards, scrapbook layouts, or whatever you like. These are a couple of photos of the pins I made.
This first one shows the packaging that I made to present the pins. Inside I used a fabric-wrapped piece of cork as a holder for the pins.
This one is a bunch of the pins I made (yes, I got carried away) stuck into a little blending sponge I had handy.
These are extremely easy to make. There is a quick tutorial on the CDAC Pin Swap thread in the Swap Group that shows you how they are made - the rest is up to your imagination.
I had never worked with beads before, and these were so much fun, that I signed up for the new pin swap, where we are doing various groups for different holiday themes - 4th of July, Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day. I signed up for all of the groups!
We would love to have you join in the fun, so please come on over to CDAC and check it out! You can find the main CDAC site at http://priscillastyles.ning.com/
. After you join, just look at the "Groups" and find the one for "CDAC Swap Central" and look for the Swap No. 7 - Holiday Colors Beaded Stick Pin Swap. You can sign up for one holiday group or all five - it's up to you! You'll love it!
Thanks for stopping by, and big hugs and Easter blessings to everyone!
