The Buckle Boutique sparkles in the New Year!

In December 2014, it was my great honor to be an independent crafter chosen by Kathy Davis Studios to participate in their annual "Joy Market," a craft exhibit/sale held at the KDS Gallery in Horsham, PA.  This year, the Joy Market was extra-special, because it was held in the new Scatter Joy Center for the Arts, in a beautifully restored barn just behind the KDS Gallery.

One of the products I sold at the Joy Market was this sweet Post-It Note holder, that I made using Dazzling Diamonds rhinestone resin adhesive sheets from The Buckle Boutique.  The sheets cut like butter -- using standard scissors (as I used in this case) or even an electronic cutting machine such as a Cricut, Pazzles or Silhouette Cameo.

As a gift to the Scatter Joy Center for the Arts, I made two banners, including this one that hung over the Center's stunning stone fireplace. The banner also features TBB's Dazzling Diamonds -- can you see them?  Subtle, and lovely!

Here's a close-up of the banner. Up top, I cut the sheet of clear Dazzling Diamonds into strips of three rows high, then peeled off the adhesive backing and affixed them to the top of each pennant. I cut the pennants themselves on my Cricut Explore, and the snowflakes from Close To My Heart's Colonial White paper, using my Silhouette Cameo.

Have you had a chance to use some of the terrific products from The Buckle Boutique, whether the adhesive sheets or rhinestone bling like buckles and pins?  Well, WHAT are you waiting for?  Perhaps a brand new and exciting product???

If you're waiting for that, do *I* have a sneak-peek for you...
this weekend at the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA, booth #2535), The Buckle Boutique and "The Modern Surrealist" Marisa Pawelko are unveiling a line of printed rhinestone sticker sheets with incredible new designs: 

Check out this Graffiti print:

Isn't that nifty?!  There are other sweet sheets, with lips, leopard prints, flowers and more. Do swing by The Buckle Boutique, either at CHA or by hopping over to to see what fun is available to you now.
