It's an exciting week with all the new CHA peeks going on. The Heartwarming Vintage blog has been hopping with new things, and giveaways too.. so be sure to pop over there each day this week.
Sandy at Crafty Secrets is letting each of the girls on the Design Team give away one of the new "Creating with Vintage Patterns" CD on their personal blogs also...........so..........
I'm giving mine away this Friday July 15th, right here! All you have to do is leave a comment in this post anytime between now and then. Easy huh? I'll draw a random winner Friday morning and announce it that day in my blog post. (Remember to be sure to get in on chances to win on the Heartwarming Vintage blog also. You can get links to the other DT girls blogs on the side bar of the Heartwarming Vintage blog , so that you can watch for their giveaways also.
Today I thought I'd share with you so jewelry I've been making using the new Mini Vintage Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets. They are great smaller images that work great for all kinds of things, today I'm focusing on jewelry.
Crafty Secrets has been adding some gorgeous Pendants to the website. These first 3 photos of charms I'm showing are for sale on the Crafty Secrets website. I have the links highlighted next to each one.
1" Round Blank Pendant Silver Finish HERE
Here are the
Mini Vintage Creative Scraps (Double sided) HERE
1.5" Oval Blank pendant Brass finish with bail HERE
1.5" Round Blank Pendant Brass Finish HERE
You can also use clear epoxy stickers.
* Okay.. I don't want to confuse anyone here so please note that the above pendant shapes are for sale by Crafty Secrets, but the ones below are a variety of things I'd had found at Hobby Lobby earlier this year. They do carry them on a regular basis. The name of them is "The Jewelry Shoppe Findings"
All of these come together so quick and easy with circle punches if you have them, otherwise, even tracing them and cutting them out doesn't take long at all. The bottle cap necklace pieces below have round epoxy pieces in them. ( see the little Word confetti I added to the butterfly? the Creative Scraps sheet also has a number of those you can add to your images if you choose). I love having that choice.
I also did these side holder necklaces with the longer thinner images. I should have remembered to take photos of the backs, so you could see, because since these image sheets are double sided, you can put slides in both sides, so that you have a double sided necklace charm.
I do believe these are available at Hobby Lobby also , but these were some I had that were from Ranger.
The ring is also "The Jewelry Shoppe Finding" brand from Hobby Lobby. I used "Glossy Accents" in it , over the image.
I loved using these mini images in this bracelet... so fun!
They also have hair clips and barrettes. ( Diamond Glaze on these)
Only one warning... these are so addictive! lol Once you start making them It's hard to stop:)
I got all the pieces I got from Hobby Lobby when they were on sale 1/2 off, and they do that often, so watch for the "bead and jewelry" sale when they have their sales.
Hope you feel inspired to create some of your own!
Don't forget to put your name in for the drawing. ( if you don't have a blog I can reach you at .. be sure to leave an email or check back on Friday when I announce the winner okay?)
Have a fantastic day!
