Card Creating With Craft Fantastic

Hi Everyone! Have you checked by the online store lately? Have you noticed the section called Card Creating? Well I got to attend some classes at Craft Fantastic Headquarters and Oh My Goodness I had such a blast! One of the classes I went to was a cardmaking class. Now on the website you will see Card Kits as well as Luxe-Line Cards and Envelopes. These Card Kits are great! They come with card bases, envelopes, instructions and all the parts and pieces. You just need to add Glaze and Glue and your preferred paper adhesives and a scissor or paper trimmer and it is super quick and super easy to make really gorgeous cards.

Now I have been a paper crafter and card maker for almost twenty years. I have to tell you these new Luxe-Line cards are fabulous! When you are making cards you really need to use a sturdy card base and these are sturdy, have a fabulous feel to them and are great to work with. The card bases measure 6 and 3/4 inches by 4 and 3/4 inches. There are five different choices: white kraft, off-white kraft, kraft, pastels and brights.

Today I am going to feature the brights and show you how quickly and easily these can come together.



If you are like me you may work on several projects at a time, and perhaps, like me, you hate to throw out any leftovers. So take a look at your scraps, look at the beautiful colors in the different luxe card bases and see what you can come up with. I bet you have some 6 x 6 paper pads that you have used on projects and have some pieces left. Perhaps those sheets that have titles on them. Those are perfect for use with our Jewelers Glass.
That can make a great focal point.

Or perhaps you made several jewelry pieces and have a few images left over on your image sheet. Those can also make great focal point images with Jewelers Glass. How about a diecut that you thought you were going to use on another project and then wound up not using. Here are two quick and easy CAS cards. These were created as I was working on other projects and wanted to make use of leftover parts and pieces.
 

Give it a try! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hugs,

Judy

Unique Holiday Gifts for Teens + Gamers

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a few gift ideas for pre-teens, teenagers, or the gamers on your holiday shopping list. I have four kids and it gets harder and harder every year to find unique gifts for kids. Until I came across their Pokémon cards last week and it struck me, that I could make some really special holiday gifts using Craft Fantastic products.


I know...cutting up their Pokemon cards is blasphemy, (lol) but first I made sure they were duplicate cards, so they wouldn't get mad at me. Or you can print photo copies. See video "here" on that process.

Gather up all your supplies and let's get started...


1. Choose an image. Add several drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of a Medium Glass Round. Press onto image until set. Wipe off any excess glue with a Q-tip.


2. Cut around the glass and cut out the image.


3. Next choose a tray. I decided on these fun Medium Round Duo Side Charm Trays in silver, so I could use more than one image. I think the kids will have fun flipping it back and forth to see the different images.

4. Lastly, adhere the glass images to the tray with a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot.


Voila! There you have several unique and special gift ideas or stocking stuffers for girls and boys or the gamers in your life. I had lots of fun making necklaceskey rings, bangles, earrings, and more. I can even see them on my kids backpacks as zipper pulls too! Even my husband hinted he wants a Pokemon key ring now too! So, I know, your kids or gamers will LOVE these!

Try a Kit of the Month and get everything you need to get you started on making so many special projects. The possibilities are truly endless! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays!

DIY GIFTS/CRAFT FANTASTIC KEYRINGS WITH CLIPS

With the holidays right around the corner here's a quick and easy idea for stocking stuffers, a teacher gift or perhaps just for yourself.  They could also look awesome on a wrapped gift as an adornment. 





I used the WATERCOLOR INSPIRATION IMAGE SHEET mini and small for the SMALL ROUND CHARM TRAYS antique brass and silver and the KEYRINGS WITH CLIPS silver and antique brass to make this easy project. All these products can be found on the CRAFT FANTASTIC website.


First I picked out the sayings that I wanted to use and adhered the SMALL GLASS ROUNDS to the image with the FANTASTIC GLAZE AND GLUE.
Once dry I then cut the image out and put into the SMALL ROUND CHARM TRAYS using a SUPER STICKY DOT. I then attached the tray and a charm with LARGE JUMP RING silver and antique brass to the KEYRING WITH CLIP making for a quick and easy gift!


So many possibilities with all the IMAGE SHEETS CRAFT FANTASTIC has to offer along with all the CHARMS they carry.  Make sure to check out all the fabulous products and look through the blog for all the great projects!  HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND SEE YOU IN TWOO WEEKS with another idea for gift giving.

Holiday Image Sheets With Craft Fantastic

Today I want to bring to you a closer look at the new Holiday Image Sheets. There are two, one for All Jewelers Sizes and one for Mini and Small Glass Sizes. When you use Craft Fantastics amazing Jewelers Glass with our Glaze and Glue, the images tend to become more crystal clear and even magnified a bit. This really makes those holiday images jump off the Image Sheet!
HOLIDAY all jeweler's glass sizes

Take a look at what these look like once I have applied Glaze and Glue and used our Jewelers Glass. I do apologize for a bit of glare in these photos. Please forgive me!




I really love how these images pop!

I can't wait to see what you come up with! And the new Holiday Image sheets are a great place to start!

Hugs,

Judy

Special Holiday Cards

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a few tips on how to use Craft Fantastic products in your card making and create special holiday cards in a flash


Let's get started. Gather all your supplies. To make the process faster and easier used these gorgeous NEW Luxe-Line cards/envelopes set in off-white as the base of all my cards.  And let me tell you, these cards are beautiful and a nice sturdy cardstock. 


Tip: I used three 4x6 scrapbooking journaling cards as card panels or backgrounds to create these cards. 

=> My first journal card didn't need much, as it had a nice pattern. It had a snowflake circle printed in the center that was the same size for a Medium Glass Round. And this Santa from the Christmas Image sheet is the perfect embellishment.

1.  Cut red cardstock 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" to create a matte or border and adhere journal card to matte panel. Then adhere panel to luxe card base.


2.  Choose an image. Add several drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of a glass round. Press onto image until set. Wipe off any excess glue with a Q-tip.

3.  Cut image out. Adhere glass image onto journaling card with a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot


4.  Cut and adhere Alphabet Images sentiment tiles with sticky dots or glue glaze. 

I used a date stamp in the center of the card for more holiday personalization. 


=> My second journal card had the perfect space for a Glass Rectangle and this little girl from the Christmas Image Sheet made for a precious embellishment.


Follow Same Steps 1-3 above to create this card.

This girl image was smaller than the glass, so I adhered it to a piece of red cardstock to have it fit the glass rectangle


4. Cut and adhere alphabet sentiment tiles with super sticky dots and collage word images were adhered with glue glaze. 

5. Adhere a little floral holiday bundle with a super sticky dot to finish this card. 


=> My third journal card had the perfect pattern to display a special handmade gift. 

1. Cut red cardstock 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" to create a matte or border and adhere journal card to matte panel. Adhere to luxe card base. Punch out two holes in the top and bottom. 


=> Create this special gift with a Faux Leather Bracelet Kit (includes faux leather straps, glass & trays to make six bracelets)

2.  This Santa is from the Christmas Image Sheet. Add several drops of glue glaze on the back of a medium glass round (included in kit). Press onto image until set. Wipe off any excess glue with a Q-tip.

3.  Cut image out. Adhere glass image onto silver tray with a super sticky dot
4. Detatch faux leather straps and loop through tray on both sides.
5.  Pull leather strap through the loop and pull taught on both sides.
6. Place each end of the bracelet through the two holes on the front of the card and clasp bracelet together to attach to the inside of the card.


7.  Cut and adhere image alphabet sentiment tiles with super sticky dots

Voila! There you have three very easy and beautiful holiday cards for the special people in your life using card making or scrapbooking supplies along with these wonderful Craft Fantastic products. Because they really aren't just for jewelry making anymore. The possibilities are truly endless! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays!
