Hello, it’s Jo here with my CT projects for September. This month I began with one product in mind, the Dear Lizzy Beaded Strands charms from the new Saturday collection.

Woodgrain, aqua, pink and gold.

Do you have favourite colour combinations which you keep coming back to? I definitely do. I love woodgrain and aqua (including teal and turquoise) mixed with a touch of pink and gold.
