Fun Fall Packaging With Craft Fantastic

Hi Everyone! If you are like me you are staring at your calendar wondering how we are already at the end of October and starting to think Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas...and then you think shopping, gifts, wrapping...and ok, breathe, Craft Fantastic has you covered. Check out today's project!
So I got this fun pumpkin candle, and many of us give candles, things in mason jars, etc. So I thought wouldn't it be great if the wrapping could also be a gift! Here is what you will need: Dia De Los Muertos Image Sheet, Day/Dead Charm Collection, Fantastic Glaze & Glue, Fantastic Super Sticky Dots, Paisley Tray, Medium Glass Round, Small Jump Rings, Large Jump Rings, 24" Ball Chain.

Now if you happened to get th October Kit, all the parts and pieces are actually in there!
Ok, so first I picked an image from the image sheet and adhered my jewelers glass, let dry and trimmed around as always, used a super stick jewelers dot to adhere it to the pendent.

Next I took my two charms and put each on it's own small jump ring.
I then attached the two charms together using a large jump ring and fed it through the attached bail on the paisley pendant. Then I threaded the ball chain around the candle neck and through the large jump ring. I wrapped it around the jar twice and did trim a tiny bit of the chain to allow the chain to fit more snugly around the neck of the jar. Presto, you have packaging that can also be removed and you have an awesome necklace as well!

And keep in mind, changing the charms, the image, the tray, the colors will change the whole look and take you through the holidays!
I hope you like this project and can't wait to see what you all are making!
Until next time!

Breast Cancer Awareness Pendant 2

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset reminding you that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I wanted to create something special to show my support and to remember my younger sister, who lost her battle with breast cancer one year ago at the age of 46. I wanted to do something to raise awareness and spread the word to all the women in our lives, because early detection can save lives! I've designed this beautiful pendant in antique silver with a few accent pieces that are very personal to me from Craft Fantastic to wear proudly.

Click "here" to get all the basic details on how to get started and all the supplies I used are listed below.

Facts About Breast Cancer:
in the USA from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, INC:
  • One in eight women in the USA will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
  • Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the USA today. 
  • GET TESTED EARLY!! Early detection can save lives. 

Breast Cancer Screenings:
Here are some screening guidelines according to the American Cancer Society:

These guidelines are for women at average risk for breast cancer who don't have a personal history of breast cancer, don't have a strong family history of breast cancer, or don't have the genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer (such as BRCA), and has not had chest radiation therapy before the age of 30.
  • Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year. (I would start at 30-35 to create a base line)
  • Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
  • Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.
  • All women should understand what to expect when getting a mammogram for breast cancer screening – what the test can and cannot do. For those who are of higher than average risk please click here.
I am not a medical doctor, so consult with yours, but from my families experience the earlier you can have a mammogram the better you are to start a baseline of your medical history. Or earlier if you have a family history of breast cancer or the BRCA gene. Insist on a mammogram, regardless of your age. Or change doctors if you don't agree with them.  If your ever told you have dense breast tissue, it makes tumors harder to detect, and you should insist on an MRI or ultrasound for further testing. Only YOU can be your own health care advocate and only YOU can save your life or the women in your lives with EARLY DETECTION!!! 

I hope I've inspired you to become aware of your breast health, get educated, talk to your daughters, mothers, sisters, family, friends and share awareness with others. Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday November 6 is Election Day so to get inspired I used the 4th Of July Image sheets (all jeweler's glass sizes) to make some fun pieces.

I chose the images

I then used the Fantastic Glaze and Glue to adhere the glass to the images on the image sheet.  Once dry I cut the images out and attached them to the pendant trays using the Super Sticky Dots.  I then put the trays onto the Keyrings with clips making for a very easy patriotic project.

No matter who you go out and vote for don't forget to VOTE this November 6!!!!

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!

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! 

Be sure to check out the new and improved October Kit-of-the-Month that are back this month and get started early on a few custom gifts for the holidays or upcoming special occasions.

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.
