Candy Necklace – Something to Celebrate

Hello Thursday friends, Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. This month’s Hello Thursday Cartridge called Something to Celebrate really offers something to celebrate! All of us at Mixology Crafts joined together to create a Sweet Sixteen Party using the cartridge. I created the jewelry project for the Jewelry Bar, which is just one of many stops at the party.

It is totally cuties and totally tween! Just my style! There are cakes with faces, candies and tiaras.

I used the candies on the Something to Celebrate Cartridge and cut out all of the layers onto different colors of glitter, jewel tone paper. I glued them together and added Ranger Glossy Accents on the top, sides and back of the shapes. While still tacky, I embedded amethyst jewels on to the front and the necklace findings on to the backs. I braided purple embroidery floss and added a Busy Kids Plastic Necklace Clasp.

Felt Bouquet – Flower Shoppe Cartridge

Cyndi of Lovely Lula here. Summer time in Arizona is really like January in Minnesota, only brown instead of white. We lack living vegetation and long for flowers, which we’ll have to wait until February to see. So I decided to use the Flower Shoppe Cartridge to create a Felt Bouquet. These are also all pins so they have a dual purpose! I used my Cricut to cut card stock to use as templates to cut out the felt pieces. I also used my Cuttlebug and some of the flower dies to cut out the felt flower shapes. Once I glued all the felt pieces together with Tacky Glue, I attached vintage buttons and then glued pin backs to all of the flowers. They are ready to wear or gift.

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Bottle Jewelry Charms With Shrinky Dinks

Hi, it’s Kendra here again on this stormy Tuesday!  The other day at Wal-mart, I saw the old fashion Coke and Sprite Bottles and thought that it would be so neat to create Bottle Jewlery Charms!

I used the Cricut Expression, Everyday Po p Up Cards Cricut Cartridge, Black Shrinky Dink material, a Jump Ring and a wine charm.   You will set the Multi Cut on the Cricut Expression to 2 and the size on 4 inches.  Select the Eiffel Tower and cut it at 4 inches.  Using a 1/8″ hole punch create a hole where you would like it to be.  I chose down a little on mine.  With heat tool shrink the plastic and let cool.  Attach the jump ring and wine charm.

Get ready to create these for all of your get togethers this summer.

Happy Scrappin”

4th of July Necklace

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. It’s coming up on Independence Day and that means this crafting girl needs something red, white and blue to wear. I used the cartridge Just a Note embedded in the Cricut expression 2: 5th Anniversary Edition to cut pin wheels out of while shrink plastic, colored them red and blue with Sharpie markers. I used a hole punch to make a hole in the centers and shrunk them. I also create circles and gears in this same fashion. I used T-Shirt yarn, braided and knotted to make the “chain” part of the necklace.

Happy 4th of July!
