THE BUTTON MAN

One of the newer IMAGE SHEETS from CRAFT FANTASTIC is the SEWING all glass sizes sheet.
I happen to LOVE really fun and interesting images and the 'button man " image on this sheet has to be one of my favorites!





I wanted to make a simple PENDANT for myself and THE BUTTON MAN was calling my name.
And how perfect are the new BUTTON CHARMS!



I used a 30" FINE BALL CHAIN and two BUTTON CHARMS with a LARGE JUMP RING silver.


THIS GUY IS SO AWESOME!!
I hope certain images just jump right out at you when you are creating a piece of jewelry!!

Fairies for My Birthday!

Hi Everyone! So today is my birthday! Yay!!!! Roght now I am obsessed with fairies, unicorns and flowers. So today I want to share with you all this fun and easy project with Fairies! I am using the Retro Square Bracelet in Black, Fairies Image Sheet, Fantastic Glaze and Glue, and Fantastic Super Sticky Dots.
Take your image sheet and pick your images. This particular bracelet uses eight images. Apply Glaze and Glue to the flat side of the jewelers glass and place on the image sheet images you want to use in your project. Hold until they grab. Let dry and trim around the glass. Then place Fantastic Super Sticky Dots into the spots on the bracelet where the glass will go and then stick in the glass pieces.
Super easy right? And look how pretty this is!!!!

 One of the things I really love is how amazing the image sheets are and how once you have them under the glass you can see all the amazing detail in the images.
I hope you like this project and pick your favorite images and give it a try! I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
Judy

TIME TO GROW

Hello from Liz at Junque Drawer Designs.  I am totally in love with the new Seed Packets all jeweler's glass sizes IMAGE SHEET! With Spring finally here it was a delight to work with these new images.


I chose two images to work with, one for a MEDIUM ROUND PENDANT TRAY silver and the other for a LONG RECTANGLE PENDANT silver.  Both will lend to make a lovely pendant to wear.



After I cut my dried images out I placed them into the trays and onto the 30" ROLO CHAIN silver.
I attached the medium round pendant tray with a large silver JUMP RING.



It is so easy to create one of a kind pieces with all the CRAFT FANTASTIC products!  And every month there is always something new to the shop!!  HAPPY CREATING EVERYONE!

Thank A Teacher - Gift Ideas

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing with you a few unique projects to say "thank you" to some very special teachers using these beautiful products from Craft Fantastic. To honor and celebrate our teachers for National Teachers Appreciation Week/Month.


As the school year is winding down you still have plenty of time to order these amazing products and make several handmade gifts for all the special teachers in your kids life. I've been told by some teachers, who are my friends, that they get TONS of gifts at the end of the school year. So I wanted to do something different and unique and this is what I came up with...a gift card holder that holds flower seed packets and a special handmade necklace she couldn't buy in any store.


To make the Flower Seed Holders:

1.  I started with an empty paper towel holder,  cut in half to give me two pieces for my flower seed holders, and press down flat. I like to recycle or upcycle, but you could use cardstock with this free printable template to cut out your own box that measures about 4 x 5.5" or 6 x 4." Or if you have a pillow box die cut or SVG that will do too.


2.  I used a whole sheet of *NEW* Seed Packets images, which measures 4 x 11" and cut in half at 4 x 5.5" makes two perfect patterned paper panels to match my project. Great for two teachers. Wrap the sheet around the paper towel holder and adhere the panel with Super Sticky Dots, because you want your project to hold together and these work great. 


3.  Then I used various paper scraps to create a "band" to wrap around the box for interest and decoration. Adhere with Super Sticky Dots, add a "thanks" sentiment with stickers, and decorate as shown in the picture above and below. Add flower seed packets to complete. Don't you just love these images? So brightly detailed for teachers, Mother's Day this Sunday, May 13th,  or the gardeners in your life.



Next how to make the necklaces:



1.  I started with an APPLE PENDANT KIT  that includes both an antique brass and silver apple trays, two apple jewelers glass, and silver and brass necklace chains. And also used a couple of  SMALL SQUARE PENDANT TRAYS in silver and SMALL GLASS SQUARES to match.
 

2.  Next choose from hundreds of Craft Fantastic images, which is always the hardest part. I really love them all! Or make your own and mix them up. I choose a teachers printable sheet from the internet and printed it on plain white copy paper at home.

3.  Cut out the apple image and added a couple drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue and adhered it on top of a script image from the *NEW* Seed Packets imagesas shown below, to create a unique collage. Allow to dry before adding glass. 


4.  Once dry. Add a few drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of a Glass Apple piece, press gently for a few minutes, and hold until set. Wipe off any excess glue around the edges with a Q-tip.


5.  Once dry, cut around the glass and cut out the image. Adhere a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot to the apple tray, remove the red backing, and place glass image into the tray to complete. Aren't these apples precious? I just love them!

Repeat the steps above to make the square pendants.


Voila! There you have several uniquely designed gifts wrapped in their own handmade packaging to show your appreciation of a teachers great work with our kids or for having a fabulous school year. "Thank You, Teachers"


Be sure to check out our *NEW* Designer Kits-of-the Month and get started designing special gifts or keep a few for yourself, because they are stunning! The possibilities are truly endless with these super fantastic products! Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy The Little Things With Craft Fantastic

Hi Everyone! I don't know about you but this time of year seems to get really hectic busy crazy. The school year starts wrapping up, dance recitals, summer plans, etc. Well my daughters are both very creative and know mom is a creative junkie so if they come across things that might be useable in a project they will save these things and give them to me. In this case, one of my daughters came across this really pretty page in a magazine with beautiful flowers and so she tore it out and left it on my crafty desk saying thought you might like to use this in one of your projects. Well I really loved this page and the flowers were all so perfect. So perfect in fact that I didn't want these beautiful flower pictures to get lost under a collage layer or lost in a background.

I chose a simple Large Oval Pendant Tray and a Large Oval Glass, some Glaze and Glue and some Super Sticky Dots and created this beautiful pendant! Just add a chain and presto!
I hope you have enjoyed this simple project and can't wait to see what you create!

Hugs,

Judy

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a very special bracelet I made using these wonderful products from Craft Fantastic. As Mother’s Day is approaching next month on Sunday, May 13th you still have plenty of time to order this amazing kit and make several handmade gifts for all the special ladies in your life.


Let's get started in 4 easy steps:

1.  I started with a Retro Square Bracelet Kit in antique brass which includes one bracelet and 8 Glass Squares.  


2.  Next choose from hundreds of Craft Fantastic images, which is always the hard part. I love them all! Or choose this *NEW* Sewing mini image sheet, like I used, because it reminded me of those sewing patterns from my childhood.


3.  Add a few drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of each Glass Squares and press gently for a few minutes and hold until set. Repeat until you have eight amazing images. Wipe off any excess glue around the edges with a Q-tip.


4.  Once dry, cut around the glass and cut out the images. Adhere a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot to each square space on the bracelet and remove the red backing. I suggest laying out your images in a row to decide where to place each image first, before you add them to the bracelet and complete. 


Voila! There you have a uniquely designed gift for Mother's Day or any upcoming occasions like Graduation, Birthday, Wedding, Baby Mama gift or special gifts for a seamstress, crafter, fashionista or any special day.

MEXICALI ROSE

One of my all time favorite CRAFT FANTASTIC image sheets is the OLD MEXICO all jeweler's glass sizes.  Today I will show you a PENDANT and EARRINGS set I made with the rose images

.
This was a quick and easy project using the following CRAFT FANTASTIC products:

OLD MEXICO image sheet
MEXI-ROSE charm
SMALL JUMP RING antique brass
PINCH BAIL antique brass
FRENCH EARWIRES antique brass
BALL CHAIN 24" antique brass
LOOP ROPE TRAY antique brass
TWIST LINK TRAY antique brass
FANTASTIC GLAZE AND GLUE
SUPER STICKY DOTS
MEDIUM GLASS ROUND
SMALL GLASS ROUNDS


Once I chose my images I adhered the glass rounds to the images that I cut out from the image sheet.
When they were dry I put them into the trays using the super sticky dots.



I attached the charms to the tray using a small jump ring, and then I attached the earwire to the tray.
This is a very quick and easy project that took under 30 minutes. This is why I love CRAFT FANTASTIC! So many possibilities!  Endless ideas!
