New Hatpins

Hi Everybody,

So this is what I have been doing over the weekend.

 I ordered some new beads, diamante roundels, glass beads and other items to create some new designs for the Hatpins

They are very pretty and they have been added to Etsy  in packs of five assorted designs.
I have more stuff on the way and will get busy making other designs  when it arrives.

I have bough the items from various places ... mainly China and so will need to wait now for the  postman to deliver them all.

But the Hatpins and end protectors are from the  Sparkles Group   

They can be found on Ebay at the moment until their website is up and running again.

If you add the code CG05  at the checkout then a discount will be applied automatically for you.

Here are just a couple of close up ideas and I will show more next week.

Back to cards soon and some new videos too.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. The pins are beautiful and always make such gorgeous finishing touch and they can be taken out and worn by the recipient. I've bought mine completed in the past but think I'd like to have a go at making them, I think it could time to start. Thanks for the code for the discount Christina.

  7. Love the hat pins. I have never used them on a card, (just remember my gran using them for her hat and wondering how it didn't hurt!!!)
    Are you doing a video of these, please.

  8. Anyone ever come up with paper hatpins? Yours are lovely Christina... and you certainly go far afield for supplies!

  9. These hatpins are beautiful Christina, this is something that I would like to try out, but I don't think that I have the patience, so I think that I will just leave this to you. Hugs, Jen xx

  10. These are really beautiful Christina like others I would love to see a video of making these. I have an assortment of beads as I gave beading a try, but oh chasing little beads around and all the counting drove me up the wall! I have tried to make some but I am sure a video lesson from you would improve my making them 100% at least!
