valentine’s projects…


i’ve posted several Valentine’s Day projects on the ClearSnap Blog in the last few weeks! if you are looking for some last minute inspiration for the “day of love”, head on over to check out my projects as well as those from the other ClearSnap Creative Team members. there are a LOT of terrific cards, projects and more posted, and all include supply lists, and some include directions and or videos.

a few days ago, i posted a project designed with kid’s in mind. a little necklace with a holder that you can slip a box of conversation hearts in…

convo box - wm (1024x683)

i thought this would make a cute class exchange gift; the kiddos could wear their candy while they eat it! and the project is simple enough that the kids can help make a lot of the parts for the project themselves. i also posted a video that shows how to make the holders step-by-step. you can view the post and the video HERE!

happy valentine’s day!!!



junque… junque and MORE junque!

i’ve been playing with some junque jewelry that i bought a few days ago – a HUGE stash of vintage rhinestone jewelry…

jewelry stash - 1 (1024x683)

i LOVE pawing through junque jewelry, you’ll never know what treasures you might find! and i found PLENTY of great bits and pieces! here are some of the jewelry pieces i made this weekend…

junque charm bracelet (1024x894)

junque charm bracelet - 2 (1024x683) junque charm bracelet - cu (1024x683)

i used a vintage sterling silver charm bracelet as a base, then made “charms” using broken bits off of earrings, pins and more.

bracelet cu (1024x683) (1024x683)

this piece started with a bracelet that my mom bought me in canton. i decided to bling it up by adding some charms to it. this bracelet is SO me — i hate to wear a watch and this one has FIVE of them — but NONE keep time! LOL!

junque necklace 2 (683x1024)

junque necklace 2 - cu (693x1024)

for this necklace, i used a rhinestone button as the centerpiece, then hung a broken link from a bracelet from it. the chain features some crystal beads from a necklace and two links from an old bracelet with pearls wired in. links taken from several necklaces create the chain.

junque necklace 1 - cu (670x1024)

this one started with an old skirt pin; i strung together different bits and pieces along with a few onsie earrings.

i figured i better stop playing before i used up all the junque i bought! i had thought to incorporate them into some class projects!

i’ve also been on a buying spree to find some great bits and pieces for the Secret Garden altered book! here’s a few of my purchases, i don’t know yet if they will all end up in the book or not…

i’m not done shopping or planning yet! i can’t wait to get my hands on the G45 Secret Garden papers so i can start working on the book!
