Thanksgiving Wine Charms

Thanksgiving is almost here!  For those who are hosting a grand feast here's some fantastic wine charms to add to your table d├ęcor or as a great hostess gift if you are not hosting.  I found these to be a quick and easy project and they look great!









All you need to do to create these fun wine charms is to pick your images and I chose images from the THANKSGIVING mini and small glass sizes IMAGE SHEET, use the FANTASTIC GLAZE AND GLUE to adhere the MINI ROUND JEWELER'S GLASS to the image, once dry cut the image out and place it into a MINI ROUND PENDANT TRAY using a SUPER STICKY DOT.  I used hoop earrings as the round piece that goes around the stem of the glass.  These were bought at a local craft store for a very low price, you can find them in the findings section of your local craft store.  I plan on making more WINE GLASS CHARMS with other images as the possibilities are endless.  Hope you like them,

So Let's Talk Stocking Stuffers

Like many of you, I am sure, I am starting to think about the holidays. And one of those things that we start to think about is stocking stuffers. Well here is a super easy idea for you. Craft Fantastic has beautiful image sheets for the holidays. And earrings make great stocking stuffers. So if you take a look under the Kit Collection Tab on the Craft Fantastic Page you will find Round and Square Earring Kits, available in both Silver and in Antique Brass.
I am using the Silver Kit today with Holiday Mini and Small Glass Sizes Image Sheet to make this adorable set of earrings. The kit contains materials for four pairs of earrings and you can certainly do multiple sets from one image sheet. The only other items you will need is Fantastic Glaze & Glue and Fantastic Super Sticky Dots.

I picked a pair of  images from the image sheet and adhered my jewelers glass, let dry and trimmed around as always, used a super stick jewelers dot to adhere it to the tray. Then simply add the ear wires and you are done! Super fast, easy, and fun stocking stuffers!

And keep in mind, changing the image, the tray, the colors, and expanding to the basic earrings will change the whole look and take you through the holidays!
I hope you like this project and can't wait to see what you all are making!
Until next time!
Hugs,
Judy

Personalized Holiday Gift Ideas

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a special monogrammed pendant I created using a clear alphabet stamp set and Craft Fantastic products for a personalized touch. See how easy it is to make a bunch of these in a flash for everyone on your list this holiday season. 


Let's get started...

Using an alcohol marker friendly ink, stamp your alphabet letter on thin white cardstock made for alcohol markers, so it won't bleed or peel apart. Color away using your favorite alcohol markers. And I allowed it to dry thoroughly overnight, so the color wouldn't bleed out of the edges. 

Tip: Using alcohol markers instead of water color markers, allows the color to set permanently, so the image won't bleed when you add the liquid Glaze & Glue over the top. 

Take an XL glass square, add several drops of Glaze & Glue and place over the stamped alphabet letter. Press gently and hold for a couple minutes until set. Wipe away any excess glue around the edges with a q-tip. Allow to dry for a few minutes. 

I chose this stunning XL antique silver tray for this project, but it does require several Super Sticky Dots for a secure hold with larger pieces. Remove red backing and place the alphabet glass image into the tray and press gently all over to set the corners and center for a secure fit. 

Added a couple of my favorite charms for a dash of good luck and a sparkle of holiday charm, that I attached with small jump rings and a pair of pliers. And added a stunning silver chain to complete this wonderful holiday gift. 

Voila! There you have a uniquely personalized holiday pendant that is sure to please anyone on your holiday gift giving list this season. I hope I've inspired you to play with your stamps and use them in your jewelry projects too! And be sure to check out our other charms and images to see what else you can make! 

Also take a peak at the new Kit-of-the-Month and other Kits to get a lot of projects made for the holidays or any upcoming special occasions at a reasonable price. The possibilities are truly endless with these amazing Craft Fantastic products! Leave us a comment and tell us what you think or what your making and share with us. Thanks for stopping by!

Fun Fall Packaging With Craft Fantastic

Hi Everyone! If you are like me you are staring at your calendar wondering how we are already at the end of October and starting to think Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas...and then you think shopping, gifts, wrapping...and ok, breathe, Craft Fantastic has you covered. Check out today's project!
So I got this fun pumpkin candle, and many of us give candles, things in mason jars, etc. So I thought wouldn't it be great if the wrapping could also be a gift! Here is what you will need: Dia De Los Muertos Image Sheet, Day/Dead Charm Collection, Fantastic Glaze & Glue, Fantastic Super Sticky Dots, Paisley Tray, Medium Glass Round, Small Jump Rings, Large Jump Rings, 24" Ball Chain.

Now if you happened to get th October Kit, all the parts and pieces are actually in there!
Ok, so first I picked an image from the image sheet and adhered my jewelers glass, let dry and trimmed around as always, used a super stick jewelers dot to adhere it to the pendent.

 
Next I took my two charms and put each on it's own small jump ring.
 
 
I then attached the two charms together using a large jump ring and fed it through the attached bail on the paisley pendant. Then I threaded the ball chain around the candle neck and through the large jump ring. I wrapped it around the jar twice and did trim a tiny bit of the chain to allow the chain to fit more snugly around the neck of the jar. Presto, you have packaging that can also be removed and you have an awesome necklace as well!

And keep in mind, changing the charms, the image, the tray, the colors will change the whole look and take you through the holidays!
I hope you like this project and can't wait to see what you all are making!
Until next time!
Hugs,
Judy

Breast Cancer Awareness Pendant 2

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset reminding you that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I wanted to create something special to show my support and to remember my younger sister, who lost her battle with breast cancer one year ago at the age of 46. I wanted to do something to raise awareness and spread the word to all the women in our lives, because early detection can save lives! I've designed this beautiful pendant in antique silver with a few accent pieces that are very personal to me from Craft Fantastic to wear proudly.



Click "here" to get all the basic details on how to get started and all the supplies I used are listed below.

Facts About Breast Cancer:
in the USA from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, INC:
  • One in eight women in the USA will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
  • Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the USA today. 
  • GET TESTED EARLY!! Early detection can save lives. 

Breast Cancer Screenings:
Here are some screening guidelines according to the American Cancer Society:

These guidelines are for women at average risk for breast cancer who don't have a personal history of breast cancer, don't have a strong family history of breast cancer, or don't have the genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer (such as BRCA), and has not had chest radiation therapy before the age of 30.
  • Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year. (I would start at 30-35 to create a base line)
  • Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
  • Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.
  • All women should understand what to expect when getting a mammogram for breast cancer screening – what the test can and cannot do. For those who are of higher than average risk please click here.
I am not a medical doctor, so consult with yours, but from my families experience the earlier you can have a mammogram the better you are to start a baseline of your medical history. Or earlier if you have a family history of breast cancer or the BRCA gene. Insist on a mammogram, regardless of your age. Or change doctors if you don't agree with them.  If your ever told you have dense breast tissue, it makes tumors harder to detect, and you should insist on an MRI or ultrasound for further testing. Only YOU can be your own health care advocate and only YOU can save your life or the women in your lives with EARLY DETECTION!!! 

I hope I've inspired you to become aware of your breast health, get educated, talk to your daughters, mothers, sisters, family, friends and share awareness with others. Thanks for stopping by!

YOUR VOTE COUNTS

Tuesday November 6 is Election Day so to get inspired I used the 4th Of July Image sheets (all jeweler's glass sizes) to make some fun pieces.



I chose the images




I then used the Fantastic Glaze and Glue to adhere the glass to the images on the image sheet.  Once dry I cut the images out and attached them to the pendant trays using the Super Sticky Dots.  I then put the trays onto the Keyrings with clips making for a very easy patriotic project.



No matter who you go out and vote for don't forget to VOTE this November 6!!!!
