Pearls of Wisdom Bracelet Project by Sarah Donawerth
I love to mix pearls with unconventional materials. When I stumbled across this paint-splashed ribbon, I knew that I wanted to create a wrap bracelet that fused together the best of the creative and the classic. The end result is a bracelet that reminds us to "enjoy the journey" and mixes the different facets of the artistic experience. Pearls of Wisdom Bracelet Project Directions: Bend..
Relic Castings Statement Necklace by Christen Hammons
I usually try to incorporate something a bit “loud” into my outfits. Sometimes I’ll wear a bright, quirky pattern or an unexpected pop of color, but lately I’ve found myself drawn to big and bold necklaces. As much as I’d love to make a huge collection of my own, I have no real talent for jewelry. However, when I spied Sandra Evertson’s Relics and Artifacts, each with a pre-made metal loop, I k..
Woven Boot Belt Project by Johanna Love
Weaving is such a fun craft. The chipboard looms that we carry at The Shoppe at Somerset are much easier and precise than homemade cardboard looms. The loom worked well when weaving with non-traditional fibers (crinkled ribbon) as it was very forgiving to use. The looms come in various dimensions, and one of them seemed a perfect width and length for a boot belt. The salvaged metal flowers had ..
Boho-Chic Spoon Pendants Project by Johanna Love
The antique look is cool! The boho look is also cool! I’ve wanted to mix and wear both styles at once, and these spoon pendants now make that possible. Boho-Chic Spoon Pendants Project Directions: Stamp words onto each spoon using steel letter stamps, an anvil, and hammer.  Brush Iced Enamels Medium onto spoons in desired pattern. Sprinkle enamel powder in desired colors on eac..
Mica and Feather Necklace Project by Johanna Love
One day while biking to work, I came across this dainty feather on the trail. It sat on my desk waiting to be turned into a necklace … until I saw that we now carry beautiful mica flakes in our Shoppe. Mica flakes are sparkly and luminescent and they’re the perfect compliment for a tiny feather. Mica and Feather Necklace Project Instructions Start by brushing glue onto each Vintaj ..
Quick & Easy Embellished Tote Project
Who doesn’t love a good tote? I have at least a dozen at home that I rotate through. So when we started carrying them in The Shoppe, I knew I had to get my hands on one and — of course — make it my own. Quick & Easy Embellished Tote Instructions Cut a strip of ruffled red striped fabric to fit the top edge of the canvas tote. Attach the fabric with hot glue, one section at a time. ..
Affirmation Bracelet Project
I love doing my best to think-outside of the box when it comes to creating new projects. I was instantly drawn to Tim Holtz’s inspirational word bands the minute I saw them. However, at first, I had no idea what to make with them, and then inspiration finally struck! I decided to create a bracelet using my random stash of jewelry findings. I love the idea of wearing this quote around my wr..
Ice Capsule Necklaces by Johanna Love
Sometimes it's fun to wear your emotions around your neck. Encapsulate your sentiments in these tiny glass tubes, and then use some of our hand-dyed ribbon to make a necklace. Wear one at a time or three at once! Ice Capsule Necklaces Project Instructions: First, remove the corks from the glass tubes. Next, clamp clothespins to tubes so they stand upright on their own. Stuff the tu..
Bookmarks for the Bookworm Project by Christen Hammons
Reading is an obsession of mine. I’m never without a book in my purse and always have a pile waiting to be read next to my bed. I’ve been known to stay up all night just to finish a book I couldn’t put down. While I have a Kindle and use it often, nothing will ever take the place of paper books for me.   Because books are so precious to me, I do what I can to take care of them. That me..
Getting “Krafty” with Kraft-Tex by Christen Hammons
When I first heard about Kraft-Tex Paper Fabric I knew I wanted to try it. A substrate with the feel of paper but the durability of fabric? Sign me up! You can do just about anything to Kraft-Tex — stamp it, apply layers of paint, print on it — and it will stand up to it. It’s a great way to turn your mixed-media art into something wearable or durable, like a book cover, tote bag, or sleeve for..
Washi Paper Bezel Journal Wraps
Exploring the many ways to use bezels can be as simple as wrapping one around a journal with some pretty ribbon. This project would make a great gift for an artistic friend; they will be receiving a new journal and a pretty piece of jewelry, all in one! Experiment with different patterned papers, and make several bezels all at once in order to have some on hand the next time you need a quick an..

Iced Enamels Relique Lanyards by Johanna Love
My mother has worked at the same hospital for my entire life, and I have never seen her without her plain, boring nylon lanyard for her keys and ID badge. When I saw these Ice Resin® bezels and enamels, I thought it was a great opportunity to upgrade my mom's obligatory neck-wear. Paired with some Prima Marketing trinkets, they transform her daily uniform into something she can really enjoy wea..
Trending: Wild About Weaving by Christen Olivarez
As crafters, we know that many of the creative trends of the ‘60s and ‘70s have been making a comeback. There are some that make me shake my head and wish them back to their original decade, but there are others that have instantly caught my attention. More and more in my Internet searches, I stumbled upon woven wall hangings. They had a retro vibe, but they were created with more modern color ..
Enjoy the Journey Bezel Necklace Project
I love the vibrant, creative designs of Roben-Marie Smith’s Art Pops products and decided to use a piece of one of her Art Pops cards inside one of the funky hobnail bezels by Ice Resin. Cut down a portion of the Art Pop card of your choice to size so that it fits inside the bezel. Using the kraft chitchat stickers, pick three to four words to create an uplifting quote. Before you put the ..
