Project Catch Up!

Hello friends! I have to apologize for how long it has taken me to update my blog! I am still posting projects and tutorials on the Frog Dog Studio blog and Instagram (feel free to follow me there as well), but have not had time to sit down and update you guys here. Shame on me!!

So I will quickly run through my projects since the last time I updated. All of the tutorials can be found on the Frog Dog Studio Blog (unless otherwise noted). Ready for some eye candy? 🙂

How To Create a Quick, Cute Mixed Media Charm-Using the Frog Dog Studio July kit

Good morning! Today I wanted to share a tutorial on how you can create a really cute mixed media charm. You will be amazed at how easily you can make a cool piece of jewelry with minimal supplies or jewelry making skills 🙂 This tutorial can also be found on the Frog Dog Studio Blog.

I love fun, funky, interesting pieces of jewelry. To do this project, all you need is your July Frog Dog kit and a few inexpensive pieces of premade jewelry. If you’re really good at making your own jewelry, you can totally DIY this entire project. I will confess that I’m not very experienced at jewelry making (although I am trying to learn) so I cheated a bit here 🙂

I started out with a bracelet that I bought at Michael’s that was already constructed. With my 50% off coupon I picked it up for about five bucks. I also purchased a plain bezel. I had a circle punch that was the same size as the bezel and punched out one of the images from the Archix clip art.

Then I cut out the small letters from the sheet to spell ART. I glued those to the circle piece.

Next, I covered the paper piece with the crackle accents and let it dry.

I glued the piece into the bezel and let it dry. Once it was dry, I covered with glossy accents to create a high gloss protective finish.

The last thing I did was attach the charm to the bracelet. I also added a few more little funky charms that I found. I would have added more from the kit, but I used all of the birds–there was nothing left of that sheet when I was done with it! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this project, thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to check out the Frog Dog Studio Blog for mine, as well as my fellow DT member’s tutorials on all of this month’s projects.

I also wanted to let you know about our Refer A Friend promotion. Check out the post HERE to find out all of the details. It’s a great deal and a fun way to share mixed media with friends.

I also managed to squeeze in a project from my LifeBook class-Week 18. A Page of Affirmations with Dawn DeVries Sokol. It was a quick and fun exercise-even though I struggle with praising myself for anything.
