October Creative Charms projects!!

Today, I posted on the Creative Charms Blog:

This month, I was lucky enough to get to design with the deal of the month!! I had the Early Christmas one, so let me show you what I did with it. First, I made a LO using Cosmo Cricket's new line, Togetherness (LOVE it!!):

Red polka-dot ribbon from the Deal of The Month
Brads (I took them out of the velvet flowers)
Crocheted orange flowers and Blue Gingham butterfly
Crocheted white flower (I removed it from the crocheted berries)

Since the kit was so packed of adorable goodies, I didn't stop with just the layout. I decided to make early gift-card holders for the holidays. These are super easy to make. You just need to buy the wallet-sized little envelopes - they are the exact perfect size to fit a giftcard in. This is a really cute, fun, personalized, and thoughtful way to give something like a giftcard or cash. For both I used Cosmo Circket's Jolly By Golly line from last year. I just loved the colors and the snowmen and the adorable cut-apart cards. All the embellies on both are from my Deal of the Month.

For this one, I used the clear crystal flowers and added the red gradient gems to the centers. I also used the green leafy ribbon in the kit and cut off the leaves to use as leaves here. They're really cute and have a lot of texture and add a lot to a really small project, like this.

And one more envelope:

I used one of the light green Gem Garden stars that comes in the kit to decorate the top and the gradient gem stickers like ornaments. I also used the braided daisy and put one of the tiny cute crystal flowers in the center for a little bling.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my ideas on all the wonderful things you can do with this kit!! It's such a great deal for only $6.99 since you get so much stuff. And some of it even comes in a cute clear plastic container :) Here's a reminder of the 2 that are available:
