Charmed I'm sure...

Who doesn't love charms?  I collect them everywhere
I go because it's the one simple thing that can really add
to a card.  This month my Butterbee projects will have a
charm theme to all of them and wow you should see what they
carry in the shop.  They have so many cute sets that are themed
and you can use them together or use them for lots of other
cute projects that you are doing.  Today i am sharing the heart set
and I made a cute dangly bracelet filled with lots of sparkling gems
and 2 cards with some of my favorite new dies and charms.

To make my bracelet you will need the following things:
Teatime Charms, Silver chain, silver jump rings, silver lobster clasp,
and tools to put it together as shown.  I really love mine and they
are from Beadalon.  I think the better your tools the easier it is
to create really fun things and these work really good.

Here is a closeup so that you can see the charms better.
I doubled the chain but really only attached the charms, rhinestones
and the crystals onto one of them.  Aren't they just so pretty?  

For my card i used a new die from Spellbinders for the
backround called French Harmony.  I cut it out of blue
cardstock and glued it on to a simple white card.  Then 
i tied a ribbon around the center and attached a rose charm
from the set with chain i had left over from the bracelet.
I stamped the sentiment on the white paper and then cut and
embossed it with the new Labels 34 die set.  To finish it
i added 3 small thin strips of white on the top and the bottom.
It was super quick and easy to do. Oh and the stamp is from 
one of my new sets that i just got from Verve Stamps.

For my next card I found this really cute Tea paper to go
with the Teapot charm in the set you can see here.
The papers are from Graphic 45 and the die set is from
Spellbinders and is called Decorative Labels 34.  The 
charm really gives it a cute little extra something.

That's all for today and I really appreciate that you took
the time to stop over and be sure and let me 
know what you think or just say hi and let me know where
you are from, this is what truly makes crafting fun. Oh and be 
sure and come back next Wednesday for more Butterbee charm ideas. 
Have a wonderful crafty day :)


  1. Hi Teresa. I love charms too and often add them to cards. Both of your cards are lovely, as is the bracelet. By the way I live near Oxford in the United Kingdom. Take care.

    1. It's always so nice to hear from you Mrs B and when i go visit Christine someday we will have to have tea together :)

  2. wow that looks amazing! love the use of them on the cards too! I have lots in my stash... must dig them out!

  3. Morning Teresa, from a very foggy SW UK! What gorgeous creations (as always). I love the French Harmony die and how you have used it on your lovely card. Your charm bracelet is beautiful - I have my late Mum's charm bracelet, which I treasure, the charms you collect always evoke such happy memories, hugs Carole Z XX

    1. That is so true about the charms and how lucky you are to have hers to treasure and all the memories that went with it. Hope your weather brightens up there with lots of warm sunshine soon!
