Re: Halloween

We have a halloween/firework party and all dress up. We dont trick or treat though but I would imagine I will be going when Tom gets older. I dont like the vandals and yobs that come with halloween but think it's not fair to stop the genuine kids from enjoying it so always answer my door with sweets...

Re: HOT FIX CRYSTALS

I use my KandiKane on almost every card I make and love it. I buy my crystals from a lady on Ebay and they are really reasonable if you get a good selection as she will combine postage.

Re: Stiffen Fabric

I do have pinking sheers, but I'm not good at cutting circles, hence why I thought of the nesties for ease!

Will have a play with a few options and let you know how I get on

Re: Brooches created with mini tiles

They are lovely Carole. You could add a few hotfix diamantes onto the flourish for added bling.

How about turning the square ones into cufflinks?
