Hello crafty peoples!!!...
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July :)... I sure did! Summer Fun with sand, sun and a holiday weekend with fireworks! Speaking of summer fun, I joined to do a stick pin swap with the theme being summer. Now, I have never done stick pins before until NOW! And with our awesome QUEEN'S help her at Pinque Peacock, who by the way creates AWESOME stick pins, I was able to get through them with her advice... so Thank You so much Jessica with all the help! I used beads, spacers and all the needed supplies from Pinque Peacock to create these pins. Jessica has a WONDERFUL assortment of beads, stones and pearls to work with. Stop by Pinque Peacock's BEAD BUFFET to order yours. In addition she carries a huge assortment of stick pins to your liking. I love large stick pins so I chose to use the hat pins in the Nickel 6 inch to do mine!... Now onto the assortment of beads. Since the theme was summer I went with a butterfly theme....

***TIP: I got this egg tray from a yard sale... and it made for a great tray to seperate the beads while I worked to put them together. Also, I used glossy accents to glue them!!!

AND.... here they all complete on the cards I did using digital printables from Tsunami Rose Designs, a sentiment I printed and cut out (part of a poem I found about summer and butterflies). I attached the printable to corragated cardstock I tore and distressed with vintage photo distressing ink!!!

Not to bad for my first time ever creating stick pins...lol!!!
