Hi All and Happy Tuesday! Today I am bringing you two fun projects really for everyone, but I made these with our planner girls in mind.
Our first project is a planner marker. Now this can also be used as a purse hangie thingie as well. I am not really sure of the technical name so purse hangie thingie will be what we call it!
We are going to start by using a key ring clip and a large jump ring and a peacock tray and attach the peacock tray to the loop of the key ring clip with the jump ring by using two pairs of the multipirpose jewelry pliers. Next we are going to use a piece of rolo chain and a small jump ring. Use a wire cutter to snip a piece of the rolo chain. I used a piece that is about 4 inches long. Use the small jump ring to attach the piece of chain to the large jump ring. Now at the other end of the piece of rolo chain, using a small jump ring, attach the love key tray. Now in the center of the piece if chain we are going to use a small jump ring to attach tiny pretzel tray. Then use a small jump ring to attach the cute heart charm halfway between the peacock tray and the pretzel tray, and finally use a small jump ring to attach a wing charm halfway between the pretzel tray and the love key. Your project is almost complete.
Our second project is to make planner clips. Now to ne perfectly honest I did go through a bit of trial and error to make sure I was giving you the best way to do things.
First you are going to need a few large paper clips. Second choose which Craft Fantastic pieces you would like to use. (note here, this is really easy and once you start you really can't stop). I used a scallop tray with a small glass round, a paisley tray with a medium glass round, a pocket wach tray with a small glass round, and an owl tray with a medium glass round. I used two images from the Valentines image sheet and two of the images were also taken from a piece of origami paper. Take your four pieces of glass, and using Fantastic Glaze & Glue create your images on your glass and set this aside to dry. Now here is that trial and error part I was talking about. Use the protective plastic sleeve that the image sheet comes in and put your paper clips on it as if you are using the sleeve as a page. Now you can use either E6000 (my tube in the picture is 2.0 oz and the one in the shop is .18oz) or krazy glue and put either on the side of the paper clip where you wish to adhere your tray and then place the tray on top of the adhesive. Krazy glue does hold more quickly. E6000 is more forgiving but does take a little more time to dry. Let this step dry completely. Once it is dry you can remove from the plastic sleeve. Use your Fantastic Jewelers Dots to adhere your glass onto the trays. I then finished off with some ribbon I have in my stash to decorate where the loops are. Really fun and really easy!
So what do you think? Did you enjoy this tutorial? If you have any questions at all on either of these projects or any of the other projects shown please feel free to ask. We love hearing from you! I do hope you have enjoyed these projects and I will see you again soon!
Today I am bringing to you an Easter Card Featuring products from the Flowering Dogwood Collection.
My background layer is cut from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection and is 6 inches by 6 inches, as is the card base. Next, using one of the 6 inch by 6 inch panels, I trimmed it down to 5.5 inches by 5.5 inches to create the background layer.
I then cut two border edges from the peach colored paper from the paper pad using Ornate Borders and Pockets die set and layered them on to the card. I then cut the fancy oval frame out of green cardstock from the same collection, and a pink oval circle from the collection using Eyelet Oval die set and adhered to the card front.
Finally I cut out the Easter Blessings from the paper collection, used Copic marker G85 around the edges and adhered both the doves and the sentiment using foam squares to give a bit of dimensionality. I hope you have enjoyed this project!
Today I am bringing you this adorable Especially For You Card. One of the things I love about Heartfelt Creations collections is that you can mix and match parts and pieces. Today I have done just that.
The final step was finding a sentiment for this little card, which I found in the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection. I just cut it out of the paper pad, trimmed and edged in Copic marker V25, and attached it to the card front.
I do hope that you have enjoyed this project and I do encourage you to try mixing and matching!
Today I am bringing you an adorable project! I created this shadowbox featuring elements from the Flowering Dogwood Collection and the Wildwood Cottage Collection.
At the base is a wood canvas that I got in the wood aisle at Michaels Arts and Crafts. It measures 8 inches by 10 inches. The back panel glued in is from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection. Also, I then fussycut from one of the papers in that collection the image for the upper right corner and used a double layer of foam adhesive to create a bit of depth. The green grass as well as the paper used for the border around the outside of the frame both came from the same Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection.
Hi and welcome to my first blog post as a member of the Craft Fantastic Design Team!
Today I am going to share with you two projects perfect for Valentines Day! For both projects you will need:
Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue, 2 pairs of pliers, a ruler, Fantastic Jeweler's Glue Dots and a Craft Fantastic Image Sheet
For our first project we will make a Valentines Day necklace and for that you will need:
1 30" rolo chain (more about this later), 2 long rose connectors, 4 small jump rings, 1 medium fancy heart tray, 1 meduim glass heart, 1 wire cutting tool, Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue, 2 pairs of pliers, a ruler and a Craft Fantastic Image Sheet
To begin I will choose an image for my heart pendant. I will cut out the image, apply my Glaze & Glue to the flat side of the glass, using a dollup in the center of the heart glass as well as several additional dollups arounf the edges. I will then place my glass over the image and hold it in place for a moment until it grips. Too much glue can be cleaned up with a qtip, but too little glue won't seal properly with the image. On the Craft Fantastic website there is an in depth tutorial which you can find here (http://craftfantastic.blogspot.com/2015/11/back-to-basics-applying-image-to-glass.html). Next use a scissor to trim the edges closely around the glass and set aside.
For our next step take the rolo chain and set it along side your ruler with the clasp closed. We are going to snip out 2 links at the 11" mark. I chose to remove an 8" section from the middle of the chain, so we will be able to use the snipped out portion at a later date for another project. (Note, you can use a 24" chain as well and snip in the middle, or you can also just snip the 30" chain in half. You can decide exactly how long you want your finished piece. I liked the idea of having a piece long enough that I could use later for a bracelet possibly.) Now use a small jump ring on each end of the chain where you just snipped the link and attach the chain to a long rose connector. Repeat this process for the other piece of chain and other rose connector.
Now take your next jump ring and attach the other end of the rose connector to the medium heart pendant, and do the same with the other connector and remaining jump ring.
Take two Fantastic Jeweler's Dots and place on the heart tray. Peel the orange pieces off and adhere your glass heart. And you are all finished!
For our second project we will make a Valentines Day charm bracelet and for that you will need:
2 small fancy heart trays, 2 small glass hearts, 1 cute heart charm, 1 charm bracelet, rose charm and rose with heart charm (both of these come in a set of charms called day/dead charm collection), 5 large jump rings, Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue, 2 pairs of pliers, a ruler and a Craft Fantastic Image Sheet
To begin I will choose 2 images for my heart charms. I will cut out the images, apply my Glaze & Glue to the flat side of the glass, using a dollup in the center of the heart glass as well as several additional dollups arounf the edges. I will then place my glass over the image and hold it in place for a moment until it grips. Too much glue can be cleaned up with a qtip, but too little glue won't seal properly with the image. On the Craft Fantastic website there is an in depth tutorial which you can find here (http://craftfantastic.blogspot.com/2015/11/back-to-basics-applying-image-to-glass.html). Next use a scissor to trim the edges closely around the glass and set aside.
For our next step I will measure to the center of the charm bracelet and using a large jump ring, attach thecute heart charm. I will then count five links to the left of center and attach one of the heart trays by using a large jump ring, and repeat this counting five links to the right of the center and attach the second heart tray. I will then count five more links from each of the heart trays and attach the rose charm and the rose and heart charm.
Take a Fantastic Jeweler's Dot and place on each of the heart trays. Peel the orange pieces off and adhere your glass hearts. And you are all finished!
