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!

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!

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:
They go perfectly with the images on the new HOLIDAY ART IMAGE SHEET

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:

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.

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!

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!
