Faux Embroidery Letter Pendant

 I am calling this Faux, because I don't know how to do embroidery. All I did was back stitch, so I don't think it really qualifies?
When I was thinking about different ideas for the Base & Bling line I thought about a necklace my grandmother wore all the time. It was much more detailed than what I made. It was oval and had flowers that were ribbon knots and leaves. It also has very tiny gold thread in it.
Here is a very simple idea for the pendants. I think these little initial pendants would make great bridesmaids gifts or how about a for a teenage girls slumber party?
 Step 1. Stamp a letter on your fabric using a light colored ink (just dark enough to see)
Step 2.  Using Embroidery thread back stitch over your letter and tie off in the back.
Step 3. Cut a piece of scrap cardstock and quilt batting the same size as your pendant. Sandwich the batting between the fabric and the cardstock.
Step 4. Glue (I used fabric glue) the fabric piece by wrapping it around the cardstock and batting. This part is tricky. Getting the letter in the center is a challenge, but I figure it looks homemade if it's off just a bit, right?
Step 5. Glue your puffy letter to the pendant. I used liquid glass on 2 and Hot glue on one. The liquid glass worked fine, it just took a lot because the fabric was soaking up some of it.

Tips: After you wrap around, glue and dry trim off any excess fabric from the back so that it's not too bulky.
Use a popscicle stick to help fit the puffy letter into the pendant, this way you don't tear the fabric.

Base & Bling Christmas Tree Ornament and Keychains

 Last year we had the Base & Bling line from CTMH and I picked up these hooks from Hobby Lobby thinking they would work well with the pendants to make Christmas Ornaments. Of course life happened and I never got around to making any. This year I pulled out the hooks I bought, luckily I could find them after 11 months and went to work.
I did check and Hobby Lobby still has these this year.
 Also just a reminder from last year, these pendants make great keychains. How cool would these be as stocking stuffers this year? And don't forget that you can put pictures in them too. I have make several of these as personalize gifts for family and friends. I recently sent a picture keychain to my friend who lost her dog. She said it was the sweetest gift to get and a little picture she could keep with her all day.

Base & Bling Necklaces and Lanyards from CTMH

 This week I thought I would give you some ideas for the Base & Bling line from CTMH. I really think this line from CTMH is a genius addition to the product line. For starters it appeals to the jewelry love in all woman. Even me who is a very minimul jewelry person. This stuff is so darn cute!
Next it is so easy to make a pendant that the kids can do it! When kids make their own gifts they are proud, I think a pendant is better than the hand print wreath any day!
So of course there is the traditional necklace way to use them, but I thought this week I would show you a few other ideas. Starting with the Lanyard. Most teachers are now wearing them with their ID and maybe keys on them. What a great gift would this be for your kiddo's teacher this Christmas?

 So I created my own CTMH style lanyard. I used one of the pendants and added a flat jewelry hook to the bottom using CTMH Liquid glass. This creates 2 loops on the pendant, now I can hook a lanyard to the top and the id to the bottom.

I a few more ideas to show you this week using the Base and Bling line.

Let's GIVE AWAY some Base and Bling!
