Bride and Groom Flip Flops

I needed to create a project with pendants for a newsletter. This is what I came up with ,"Bride and Groom Flip Flops". I think that they are a perfect gift for a Bridal shower. To re create this project you need two photos, scrap paper, pendants, silver pen, Melting Pot, clear UTEE, Dazzle Tac glue, flat back swarovski crystal, ribbon, flowers, scissors and flip flops. To start you will need to melt the clear UTEE in the melting pot. Then cut your photos to fit the pendants. Cut scrap paper to fit pendant and write "Bride" and "Groom" on each piece. Atach photos and scrap paper to pendants with Dazzle tac. Next you will fill the pendants with the melted Clear UTEE. Set aside to dry. Tie a narrow ribbon around each pendant. Now everything else is pretty much layering. Make 2 bows with a wider ribbon. Attach a flower on top of wide bow using a small amount of Dazzle Tac glue. Attach pendants to flowers then attach to flip flops. Ta da! A pretty quick and easy personal gift.

Fall Notebook

I was lucky when school supplies went on clearance at Target. One of my finds was the Mead notebook for 12 cents. You can't help but buy a bunch. I finally got around to altering one of them. I used Amate Studios Chocolate, Ivory and Sea Green Weave paper. I used watercolor crayons ti fill in the leave stamp by Stampin Up!. The pendant is by Amate Studios and filled with UTEE and then the same leave stamp was pressed into the UTEE. What do you think?

Melting Pot

Have you ever used theMelting Pot by Ranger and Suze Weinberg? I'll he honest, at first I didn't like it at all. I used it for about a month and could not get the hang of it. So I put it away on a shelf and didn't take it out again. Well a while later I took a class showing how to use the Melting Pot. WOW! Taking a class made all the difference in the world. There are so many possibilities. My new favorite thing is to make jewelery with UTEE melted in the pot. Who would have thought that you could make jewelery with UTEE. I used a pendant made by Amate Studios, picture out of Suze Weinberg's book Instant Art, Clear UTEE and the Melting Pot.
