Bracelets & Boxes- Part 2 of 3

Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry that I only had a chance to do one post last week. I try very hard to post three times a week, but since we started our new magazine, Bella Crafts Quarterly , I have been super busy getting ready for our next issue that will be out December 1st. Be sure to keep an eye out for that and if you can't wait for our Winter Journey issue, we have a special Thanksgiving issue that will have a downloadable Thanksgiving place setting project, along with some Thanksgiving memories from Bella Crafts Creative Team and a sneak peek of our Winter Journey issue!

I hope you enjoyed my first post last week on Bracelets & Boxes because the second part is here! And as I said in last week's post, the stylestones that I used to create these bracelets are no longer available through Clearsnap, but you can purchase a similar product through Stampbord at that works great for these projects. Try them out, you will be pleased!!!

Don't forget to check back this week for a cool project on Wednesday and for my very special Guest Blogger, Kristi Parker Van Doren, this Friday. The last part of this series will be on next Monday, November 5th. You don't want to miss any of this fabulous stuff!!!

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...
