Fun Fall Keyring With Craft Fantastic

Now remember I said this is super easy, and it is. Also, as always, one of my favorite things about Craft Fantastic is that you can mix and match. If you like this but would rather use a different shape tray or a different charm or a different image sheet, that is perfect and the look you get will be totally your own!

Let's get started. I am selecting two images from the image sheet and adhering the two glass domes and trimming them around.
Next, add the key ring to the hook part. Use a large jump ring to attach the open daisy tray and the butterfly charm to the ring, and attach the medium round tray to the ring. Add your super sticky dots to the two trays.
Attach your two glass pieces and you are done! Easy peasy!
Until next time!

Hugs,

Spooktacular Halloween Accessories

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing some spooktacular jewelry that you can make yourself to accessorize for Halloween or any day with these amazing antique brass pieces from Craft Fantastic. I LOVE this time of year! So, follow along as I show you a couple of fun pieces you can make for yourself or grab an affordable kit and make some for your friends and family too!



Let's get started...

For this project I chose this darling black cat from this Halloween image sheet.



Add a few drops of Glaze & Glue onto a mini glass square, place over the image, and press gently for a few minutes until set. Wipe off any excess glue around the edges with a Q-tip. Allow a few minutes to dry.

Once dry, cut around the glass and cut out the image. Next I chose this mini antique brass square tray to fit nicely on the bangle and to give it a vintage look.



Adhere a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot to the tray, remove red sticky dot backing and place the glass image in the tray. And press gently to set.

Next I chose a tiny clear round glass bling, but I wanted it orange for Halloween or Fall. So, I colored it with an orange alcohol marker. Set a side to dry.

I picked out this tiny antique brass round tray, because it has two loops on each end. One to attach a jump ring and the other to attach a charm to dangle. 



Once the orange glass bling is dry, adhere a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot to the tray, remove red backing, and place in the tray. Press gently to set.

Pick out some of your favorite charms and attach small jump rings to all of them and the trays with pliers. 


And now the fun...Assembling!!!


Just screw off the ball on the end of this antique brass bangle bracelet and slip on all the pieces and screw the ball back on to complete for Halloween or maybe Day of the Dead (Día De Los Muertos).  Pretty, right???

Change and personalize your bangle anytime with the season, holiday, occasion,  or your mood with a switch of a new charms or maybe make new trays!

Or add this spooky tray to a faux leather necklace and be stylish for Howloween!



Voila! There you have some spooktacular jewelry pieces to accessorize for the season or any day! I hope I've inspired you to check out our images and charms and see what you can make!

How to Create a Necklace Without Glass and a Photo

Hello everyone!! Kymona from Kreative Kymona is here today! I'm here to show you how to create a necklace without glass and a photo.

Yes, you don't always have to use the glasses or a photo to create a necklace. I had the opportunity to pick up some Unicorn Spit when I was at Creativiation last year and thought this would be the perfect time to give it a try.

Let's take a look:


Different look right! I decided to leave it as a matte look vs. a glossy look.

To create this, you simple pour a small amount of the liquid into the Key Medallion Tray and let it dry. Once its dry you can wear it.

Very easy to do.

What do you think?  

Will you use create a necklace out of your artwork? Let me know.

Where to find us:

Just in case you didn't know you can find Craft Fantastic on all of the social media platforms:




Follow so that you don't miss out on any of the creative ideas, deals and new goodies that appear in the store.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Meaningful Words Gift Ideas

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a wonderful way to capture meaningful words that describe somebody special using these amazing antique silver pieces from Craft Fantastic.  With the holidays sneaking up on us, you maybe starting to think about special gifts you can make and these are very affordable. So, follow along as I show you a unique way to send a special message or express your feelings and capture them forever.


Let's get started...

1. Choosing from hundreds of Craft Fantastic images is always the hardest part. And usually you see my collage projects where I cut out 1-2 words, but for this project I chose to use a section of words already on the word collage sheet.


I made this necklace for my Aunt and these words were all very personal to me and very descriptive of her. But don't fret if it doesn't easily work out that way, you can certainly cut the words apart, group together, and glue onto another sheet and make a collage of something similar. 


2. I added a few drops of iridescent glitter glue to give it some sparkle. Allow time to dry so the glitter doesn't stick to your glass and obstruct your view of the words. Can you see the sparkles?


3. Once dry, add several drops of Glaze & Glue onto an XL Glass Round and place over the word image, and press gently for a few minutes until set. Wipe off any excess glue around the edges with a Q-tip. Allow a few minutes to dry.


4. Once dry, cut around the glass and cut out the word image. Next I chose a stunning XL antique silver tray to give it a classy timeless look.

I was going to add this small square image tray to this project too, which is why it's pictured here, but I changed my mind. Better to make too many choices than not enough. And I'll use it for another gift.


5. Adhere several Fantastic Super Sticky Dots to the tray, because you'll want to use more dots on the larger trays. Remove red sticky dot backings and place the glass word image in the tray. And press gently to set.


6. Repeat steps 3-5 above to create the letter "g" in this project, which reminds me of an old vintage typewriter text. Cool, right? Once dry, place glass letter image in this small, but very classy looking tray. And press gently to set.

7. Attach the silver angel wing charm with a small jump ring and pliers. And add all three pieces to a beautiful silver chain to complete.

These angel wings are one of my favorite charms. Aren't they beautiful? You've probably seen me use them on several of my projects. I just can't help it, they remind me of guardian angels watching over that special person. I just love them!

Voila! There you have an incredibly meaningful gift idea for that somebody special on your holiday gift giving list. I hope I've inspired you to use your words and spread kindness this Holiday Season and all year long!

The possibilities are truly endless with these amazing Craft Fantastic products that help you personalize any project!

ON THE ROAD WITH CRAFT FANTASTIC

I had the wonderful opportunity to work at the Craft Fantastic booth at the STAMP SCRAP ART SHOW (SSAT) this past August in Hamburg New York (just outside of Buffalo).  That is not me pictured below at the demo table that is my 18 year old daughter who did a fine job demonstrating as well!  It was a two day show and each day a different project was offered as a free make and take.  I was so happy to share all the different techniques and ideas that you can do with all the CRAFT FANTASTIC products.





Here are some photos I took of all the different samples that can be found at the CRAFT FANTASTIC booth at any given show/convention.






Pictured below is a fabulous necklace and earrings made with seed beads.  This was definitely one of the most asked about project at the show.



The amount of product offered at the booth was great and if there was anything you wanted to special order the shipping is free if done at the show booth.

Here is a list of  all the upcoming shows that CRAFT FANTASTIC will be participating in:

Nothing Says Fall Like A Sunflower Charm Bracelet!

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are ready to get crafting! Today I am bringing you a fun and easy project using Craft Fantastic Round Charm Bracelet Kit in Silver. This kit actually has almost everything you will need for this project. The only other items will be your images and for this project I am using Sunflowers Image Sheet and jewelers super sticky dot and glaze and glue.
Ok so to begin with I did shorten the length of the charm bracelet itself. That is one of the great things about this kit. The bracelet itself can accommodate a lot of wrist sizes. Now with the bracelet shortened, I attached my jump rings fairly evenly over the length of the bracelet and attached the trays. Now you may be wondering why I attached the trays first before I attached the glass to the trays. Easy! For me personally I have a tendency to put things on upside down.
Ok next I put on the super sticky dots on the trays.

Next I took my Sunflowers Image Sheet and used Glaze and Glue to attach the jewelers glass onto the images I decided to use. Apply your glaze and glue to the jewelers glass as normal, hold the glass until it grips the paper and is dry.
Trim and using the super sticky dots already on the trays, adhere the glass onto the charm trays.
Pretty huh?
I would love to know what you think of this fun fall charm bracelet!
Hugs,

Judy
