It's now officially the Christmas Season. If you are like me, you are still looking for great Christmas gifts.
I've thought for a while how beautiful our papers would look as jewelry.
In fact, this summer I learned how to make epoxy jewelry using metal washers and scrapbook paper. It's a simple, inexpensive and fun way to make jewelry. And, as you can see, our pre-glittered Laundry Line papers are perfect for jewelry!
One day I ran across a company called Amate Studios. They sell beautiful pendant trays (I didn't know that was what they are called) that can be made into rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets or cufflinks. Anything you can imagine - what about hair clips or a key chain?
I had so much fun creating! By combining My Mind's Eye products with Amate Studios, I came up with so many fun projects it was hard to stop!
Our papers come in so many different styles and colors - the possibilities are endless!
Abbey Road Lucky Me paper, chipboard, brads and ribbon all combined beautifully to create this fun pendant.
I used the new Be*Loved papers to create this earring, bracelet and necklace set.
Ooh La La for Him, my family pictures, Laundry Line ribbon and a square bracelet make a beautiful brag bracelet!
My favorite project? The pièce de résistance? I've really wanted one of those cute chunky pearl necklaces that have a fun fabric flower and are tied with ribbon. You know the ones. I decided I could make my own using Life Stories collection 2 and a circle bracelet! I hope you like it as much as I do!
I found this great instructional video on You Tube (there is a part 2 also). If you are nervous, this should help ease your fear.
Be sure to join us tomorrow as we introduce our December Guest Designer. You are going to love her!
