Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

My swivel clasp for the swap hosted by emoradesigns

This picture shows all the charms laying out flat so you can better see each one of them. We were supposed to make at least 10 charms for the swivel clasp but as you can see, I used a lot more. In fact the swap was for the Tim Holtz swivel clasp to be completed with charms but I wanted my swivel clasp to be bright shiny silver and so I made my own. I also made mine to be a bit longer than the ones from Tim H. I hope my swap partner doesn't mind.

This picture shows the charms as they hang on the swivel clasp as a whole. I am sorry that the photos didn't turn out to be of the best quality but hopefully you can get a good idea of what it looked like. I really liked it and found it hard to stop adding charms to it.lol. I just wanted to keep adding more and more but it looks pretty full to me so I think maybe I picked the right time to stop. I liked the little Christmas light charms. I found them at wal mart. I tried to make the swivel clasp to have a combination of big and small charms on it. I like the long beaded charms but too many of them on one swivel clasp kinda looks off balance to me anyway. I tried to do a mixture of both. My swap partner said she liked the classic Christmas theme and I hope I was able to give her what she was looking for. I really hope she likes it. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave me a comment. I love to hear from you guys.
