HOLIDAY BANGLES

Hi it's Liz from Junque Drawer Designs and I'm excited to show you the SLIDER BANGLES I made with some of the new charms and image sheets from the November Kit of the Month!!



I am in love with the two new charms in the kit:
CHRISTMAS TREE CHARM
FLOWER ANGEL CHARM
They go perfectly with the images on the new HOLIDAY ART IMAGE SHEET
ALL SIZES AND MINI AND SMALL





Also new in the kit is the MIINI ROUND GLIMMER TRAY which I used with the new FLOWER ANGEL CHARM.


Other products from CRAFT FANTASTIC used are:
ANGEL CHARM
SMALL GLASS ROUNDS
SMALL ROUND CHARM TRAY SILVER
SLIDE BANGLES SILVER
MINI GLASS ROUNDS
LARGE JUMP RINGS

I prefer using the LARGE JUMP RINGS for the SLIDE BANGLES as a personal preference.  Just like the look when they are stacked on wrist.


(this is not a wrist :) )

All these fabulous products can be found on the CRAFT FANTASTIC website. With holidays approaching these SLIDE BANNGLES make a great statement for yourself or a gift.

As always so simple.
PICK YOUR IMAGE
ADHERE THE GLASS TO THE SELECTED IMAGE WITH THE CRAFT FANTASTIC GLAZE AND GLUE
USE A SUPER STICKY DOT TO SECURE THE IMAGE TO THE TRAY
USE EITHER A SMALL OR LARGE JUMP RING TO CONNECT TO THE BANGLE
AND CHOOSE A CHARM TO ALSO CONNECT TO THE BANGLE

Ring in the Holidays

Hello everyone!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to show you how to ring in the holidays!!!  I love a little play on words, don't you!

So are you ready for upcoming holiday?  Do you need some ideas for gifts?  Well this project is perfect for that.

Let's Take a Look:


Can you believe the holiday is vastly approaching?  I can't. To me the year just started and now its about to end.  Time is waiting for no one.

Craft Fantastic sells the prettiest rings and I never thought to create with it until now. You see I'm not really a ring person but after making this ring, I want to create more.  They are so adorable and I can customize it to make my necklace.


Here's what I used to create this project:

Small Silver Oval Rope Ring
Small Glass Ovals
Fantastic Super Sticky Dots
Winter pattern paper

To create this ring, use the same steps we use to create a necklace or bracelet.  If you need a refresher, check out this page.

Let's take a closer look:


What do you think?  

Isn't this ring from Craft Fantastic super cute?  Let me know if you would create some of these rings for holiday gifts.

Getting to work on those holiday gifts!

Hi Everyone! Are you starting to think holiday presents? I am! So today I am bringing you our Retro Posh Bracelet kit. What I love about this bracelet is the many possibilities! The size of the glass in this bracelet gives you a lot of space to work with. You will also need Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue and Jewelers Sticky Dots.

Now several months ago I was away with my husband and I can't resist going in to paper stores, craft stores, etc. and I happened on a paper specialty store, where I found this really beautiful paper. It was sold in large sheets and was called "Fine Paper" and was in a section that appeared to really be sort of a wrapping paper type section, but it was imported from Asia and is this really beautiful paper that had gold through it, and there were a number of different ones to choose from. Well this is one of those papers. What I really love about it is that you can position your glass on different parts of the paper and get different images. So here is a small piece and you can see I have placed my glass in different ways and color areas to give my bracelet variety.
To get started you will use your Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of the glass ovals that come in the Retro Posh Bracelet Kit and glue on to the paper as usual. make sure to use a qtip to clean up any glue that seeps out at the edges. Trim around with a scissor once the glue is dry, trimming at a 45 degree angle so you can get a clean edge.
Now because this glass is pretty large I would suggest using two jewelers sticky dots as I am showing here.
Peel off the orange side of the sticky dots and adhere your finished jewelers glass to complete your project. Here I am showing you the completed bracelet. You can see how the jewelers glass amplifies the gold that is in the paper!

So take a look at your specialty papers and see what wonderful images you can find!
 
I can't wait to see what you create!
 
Hugs,
 
Judy

Thanksgiving Name Cards and Napkin Rings

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a couple of Fall projects I created using these amazingly detailed New Thanksgiving images from Craft Fantastic to decorate your table for the holidays or any special occasion. 


How to make Name Cards for place settings: 


For this project I choose to use a couple 6x6 paper pads, because I have a lot of them (lol), but also because they're already measured and easy to use.  I cut the bottom layer, an orange checkered or houndstooth type patterned paper at 2 ¼" x 6."  Then cut the red dot paper a smidge smaller at 2" x 6."  And adhere the red strips to the orange bottom layers (with an adhesive runner) as shown below.


I printed our names from my computer, in black, on cream colored cardstock, at a 36pt font, with an Edwardian Script font.  And cut each card 1 ¾" x 3 ¼" and adhered to each panel.  Or you could also use any of our alphabet images to create names too!


These new Thanksgiving image sheets are just beautiful and can be used for so many things. I chose several different images for my cards so you can see them up close. Cut out each image and adhere to the cardstock panel with Fantastic Glaze & Glue so the images will lay flat.


Score each card lightly at 3 ½" so you don't cut through your cards.


Fold and crease the name cards so they will stand up as shown below.


To personalize a couple cards I added a touch of rosemary from my garden and adhered with Fantastic Glaze & Glue too. And now you're ready to put each card at each persons place setting at the dinner table.


How to make Napkin Rings: 



I started with an empty toilet paper roll. I know what you are thinking and you can use a paper towel holder or some big box craft stores sell brand new paper rolls too. Really!


I cut the toilet paper roll at 2 ¼" to create a nice size ring. Cut an orange checkered strip 2 ¼" x 6"  and a red dot strip 2"x 6" (same size as our place cards above, to keep it easy) and adhered them together.  Then attached the strip to the napkin ring with Fantastic Super Sticky Dots. You need a super strong adhesive or the paper will pop off and your project will fall apart before dinner. And we don't want that. So, I also wrapped bakers twine around the napkin ring a few times to secure it in place too.


I selected this large leafy image (upper right corner) as my bottom border, cut it out, and set aside. And I selected the "Happy Turkey Day" sentiment image to go on top of the leafy image.  Added several drops of Fantastic Glaze & Glue to a Large Glass Square and adhered to the sentiment image. Press firmly and wait a couple minutes until dry. Wipe any excess glue around the edges with a Q-tip. Cut out the glass image piece to layer it upon the large leafy image and adhere with several Fantastic Super Sticky Dots.


Adhere the whole square piece to the napkin ring with several Fantastic Super Sticky Dots to hold it in place. And tied a sprig of rosemary from my garden with bakers twine, add napkins, and your table is set for dinner.


Voila! Your guests have a personalized souvenir to take home or you have special embellishments to use in a scrapbook of the day. Either way it's a couple of great projects 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!  I wish you all health and happiness this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by!

Other Supplies: Q-tips, Scissors, Cream Cardstock from Stampin Up, Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells 6x6 orange checkered/houndstooth patterned paper, BoBunny Soft Shades 6x6 red Double Dot patterned paper, Scoreboard, and toilet paper rolls.

BE THANKFUL



This is the time of year when I take all my CRAFT FANTASTIC creations and do a few local craft shows.  People are always asking for specific images.  Until this year I have not has anything related to Thanksgiving.  Here are two brand  new Thanksgiving IMAGE SHEETS!






I was glad to have taken photos of what I made this past weekend using the images from the new sheets:








I used many PENDANT TRAY sizes and the SLIDE BANGLES. 
The new image sheets fit all sizes and the small and mini sheet work great for the CHARM TRAYS used in the SLIDE BANGLES.

NO TURKEY WAS HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS POST :)

Glass Bling Bookmarks

Hello everyone!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to show you how to create glass bling bookmarks.


Craft Fantastic sells this pretty glass blink gems that have a superior reflective quality and are a perfect addition to any piece you create.  For this project I used the Tiny Round Glass Bling.

Let's Take a Look:


Look at how pretty those pieces look!!  I used the Aqua, Amethyst and the Cerulean to create these bookmarks.  I paired them with the Butterfly Link Tray Kit.


Here's how I created these:

1. Cute 3 pieces of ribbon to 26" in length.  

2.  Using a sewing machine, stitch a single line an inch away from the loop of the ribbon. 

3. Slide a large jump ring through the look of the stitched loop.  


5. Using a set of jewelry pliers add a small jump ring to the second loop on the butterfly link tray so that you can add a coordinating charm.

6. Knot the top of the ribbon for a nice and clean finish. 

Let's take a closer look:


Perfect gifts to give to any one who loves reading or for someone to add to their planners.


What do you think?  

Aren't these glass bling gems from Craft Fantastic amazing.  Let me know if you would create some of these bookmarks for your book lovers and/or planner lovers!!
