Who's That: Sweet Charli

First things first, thanks to Random.org, we have a winner of the Tile Pendant Necklace giveaway.

#5- Erin L., who said  "I really like the 10 Charm Bracelet from Imjewelee. I would use it to make a beaded charm bracelet." (her comments got accidentally deleted, in case you're wondering what's going on.)

Congrats, Erin!

Please email me your info (address and which necklace you'd like) as soon as you can and I'll have your prize off to you, lickety split!

Now, on to this week's Who's That.

I am very excited to introduce you all to the amazing Kami from Sweet Charli.  She's been gracious enough to share one of her super-cool tutorials with you all today.  Take it away, Kami!

Hello all you Scraps and Scribbles readers! I feel very honored to be a guest blogger on Courtney's wonderful blog! She is very talented, and not to mention sweet! I especially love her darling tile necklaces...did you see her tutorial??

A little about me, my name is Kami from Sweet Charli Boutique & Blog.

I am a mother of ONE, to my sweet Charli girl! I always put girl at the end because typically, people think of Charli as a boy name. But after reading (and watching) Jack Weyland's "Charly", (you MUST see) I couldn't resist the name - and after years of waiting until it was the right time for a baby girl, I finally got to name my baby after her! I have been married for 4 1/2 years, to my high school sweetie!!  And obviously, I love to craft! I especially love making things for myself, like cute earrings and rings found HERE & HERE, fun flip-flops HERE, and my corsage wristlets, which I am sharing with you right now...enjoy!

Look for the "no-sew" version of these babies HERE


The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Here is what you need:
Ribbon (any size, but I like best and am using 1 1/2 inch ribbon)
Top ribbon (1/2 inch works well with this)
Sewing machine
Jewelry fastener
Any embellishment you want on top
(silk flowers, ribbon flowers, fabric flowers, broach)

Take your ribbon and ruffle it by pinning it and then sewing


Here's what it looks like after it's been sewn


Then sew the smaller ribbon on top, sew up the ends, and give it a nice button hole


Sew on your jewelry fastener on the other end


And wahlaah! Easy huh? And super-cute for Spring! I cannot tell you how many compliments I get when I wear mine out!


You will find that after making these, you will no longer match your bracelet to your outfit, you will match your outfit to your bracelet!!

Thanks Courtney, for inviting me to guest-post! Hope you all enjoy your new bracelets!
LOVE, KAMI

Thanks so much for sharing, Kami!  Be sure to stop by her blog and check out all of Kami's creations over at Sweet Charli!
