There were plenty of great craft posts published this week. I love the simple beauty of the Rose Patch necklace. It’s easy to make, and you can use any patch you like—it doesn’t have to be a rose. The quilting-themed cards make me want to play with paper. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of scrapbooking supplies. My stash is heavy on fabric, yarn, and beads, but light on paper crafting supplies. I’ll have to work on that. I hope you enjoy this week’s top craft posts. Here they are!
Here’s a tutorial on incorporating watercolors into your scrapbooking layouts. This is an easy way to add some extra splashes of color to your layouts.
Rose Patch Necklace
Head on over to Tattooed Martha to find out how easy it was to put together this Rose Patch Necklace. This project would be a great project for an 8- to 12-year-old girl because of its simplicity, but yes, it’s elegant enough for grownups too. I found this post through Craft Gawker.
Snappy Tots Character Hats
Mia the Cute Mouse Pattern
Lin from Sending Hugs shows off two quilt-themed cards and tells how she made them. The other card features a star-pattern quilt and says “Warm Wishes.” Both were created for the Cozy Quilt challenge at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Do your polymer clay beads get messed up when you put the holes in them? Here is some information about a tool that helps you make straight holes in your beads. Click here to buy a pack on Amazon.com through my affiliate link.
