Jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles - Sonja Henie

Hey everyone! I am just getting back from the most amazing trip ever and I wanted to share this tutorial with you on making Color Blocked Gold Bracelets . I will be sharing more about the my trip later this week so make sure to come back and check it out!

If you are like me then you can sometimes be cheap! Very cheap!

I personally call it being “smart”, right. I found a set of gold bracelets a while back at Old Navy and bought them. Check out what I was REALLY doing there when I found them.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with them but I knew I would figure it out and it would be RAD. If you like gold check out this cute gold flag banner I made for a cake.

I finally decided I wanted to add a splash of color to them. Finger nail polish is the best thing to apply to metal because it stays on for a LONG time. Let’s get started. Color Blocked Gold Bracelets How beautiful are these bracelets. I knew they would be a hit on my vacation and now I am madly in love with them. I think I need about 10 more on my wrist.

You will need:
1. Nail Polish
2. Gold Bracelets or Gold Chain HOW TO PAINT METAL JADERBOMB I am using Covergirl outlast stay brilliant nail polish. I am in love with all of their colors and they fit perfectly with my smile!

If you want to purchase all of the colors from one spot make sure to click my affiliate links below! The colors I am using in this post are:
1. Mint Mojito 285
2. Snow Storm 110
3. Go-Go Mango 245
4. Salt Water Taffy (not sure of number) FINGERNAIL POLISHED JEWELERY

COVERGIRL NAIL POLISH DIY

15 gold diy's Step 1:  Lay out your gold bracelet on a clean surface and coat one side with nail polish. painting gold bracelts Move on to the next one and remember to coat one side at a time. It doesn’t take too long for the polish to dry. In 10 minutes you can flip it over and do the other side. I like to do about 2 good coats  of each color. My goal is to give it a matte finish.  how to paint You can see below how it will look if you only do one side of the bracelet. Depending on the links I would decide if I wanted to do both sides on some of them.  diy bracelets One tip I have when storing bracelets is to sling them over the top of a really cool jar. You can find these at garage sales or vintage stores. Plus it looks really pretty.  EASY KIDS CRAFTS

BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU GLITTERY CRAFTERS! XOXO, JADE

You don’t have to carry a designer bag that costs more than a car to look cool.
-Kesha

Today I will teach you how to become a Fashion Blogger.  I totally think I missed my calling in life and you will completely see this in the pictures below.

Yes, that would be a high end fashion model… You don’t think?

My son actually took these pictures and we figured out two things after he took them.
1- He should be a high end fashion photographer (attention attention)
2- He know’s all about shutter speed (or this was just luck)

Who’s ready to see the REAL way to take pictures of “bags” for your BLERG.

Check out my tie dyed shirt I did for Old Navy and this canvas bag for I love to Create. Click on the links and you will see the FULL tutorial.

EXAMPLE 1: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WITH BAG SLIGHTLY COVERING THE TOP PART OF YOUR LEGS.
fashion blogger  EXAMPLE 2: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF ROAD AND HOLD BAG WITH A SLIGHT SEXINESS TO IT AND JUMP STRAIT UP IN THE AIR. CAREFUL NOW THIS CAN BE DANGEROUS.  fashion pictures EXAMPLE 3: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TOUCH THE BAG WITH ONE HAND LIKE YOU ARE PROTECTING IT FROM ALIENS WHILE OTHER HAND IS BENT AND SEXY. P.S. DON’T FORGET TO BEND ONE KNEE, NOT TWO. JUST ONE.  how to pose for pictures EXAMPLE 4: STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND JUMP STRAIT UP WITH KNEES BENT.  REMEMBER WE STILL NEED TO LOOK WHIMSICAL AND SEXY ALL WHILE KEEPING THE BAG IN THE PICTURE. WE CAN SEE I OBVIOUSLY SUCCEEDED HERE.  jumping in pictures  EXAMPLE 5: STAND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHILE HOLDING YOUR BAG AND PRETEND TO RUN AFTER A CAB WHILE SMILING AND POINTING YOUR TOES. learn to run in pictures
EXAMPLE 6: RUN ACROSS THE ROAD WHILE TRYING TO DO A SPLIT IN THE AIR ( BUT NOT TOO MUCH )

MAKE SURE TO CUT THE HEAD OFF OF THE PICTURE. THIS WILL TOTALLY GET YOU THAT GAP CONTRACT YOU HAVE BEEN WANTING. KENDI CAN PROLLY HELP ME ON THIS ONE.  learn to take action shots  EXAMPLE 7: STICK YOUR ARMS OUT AND PLACE THE BAG IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE. I RECOMMEND WEARING A LITTLE BIT OF MAKEUP FOR THIS ONE.  picture shots for bloggers  EXAMPLE 8: STAND SIDEWAYS AND HANG YOUR BAG ALMOST TO THE GROUND ON THE SIDE OF YOUR BODY. posing for action shots  EXAMPLE 9: FACE THE CAMERA WHILE HOLDING BAG IN FRONT OF YOU. REMEMBER THE KEY IS TO LOOK AS UN-NATURAL AS POSSIBLE. posing with bags for pictures  EXAMPLE 10: THIS IS THE MOMENT YOU GIVE IT YOUR ALL WHILE THE MAN IN THE BACKGROUND UNLOADS A DRESSER FROM A TRUCK. TRY TO MAKE YOUR HAIR FLOAT IN THE PICTURE SO YOU LOOK LIKE A DISNEY PRINCESS.  How to become a Fashion Blogger I mean, I will be honest with you. It’s that easy to become a fashion model. If I can make it so can you. Stay tuned for the next photo shoot with a really cool Old Navy Striped Dress.

I was so stoked when I received my Darby Smart 80s Throwback Tote Bag kit in the mail the other day. The box was sitting at my front door and I instantly knew what it was. How did I know? Maybe it was the fact that the box was a bold teal shade and the sides were filled with white chevron stripes. Yes, I kept the box. You already know I am a box hoarder.

I have one goal in mind. To create a killer 80′s bag that I could pull off wearing with anything.

*Tulip Fabric Spray Paint (yes these colors are amazing and metallic)
*Baggu Tote Bag
(which is legit)
*Tulip Sponge Dauber
*Ronda Palazzari Cassette Tape Stencil
(this alone is an art piece)
*Aleene’s Tacky Adhesive Spray
(this was not in the kit but I use for all stencils)

Darby-Smart-Throwback-Bag-Supplies

I am in love with these stencils. They truly scream 80′s graffiti! The second I saw them my brain was going crazy. I can’t wait to play with them some more.

darby-smart-bag-stencil

If we are going to talk about falling in love with something else it’s Tulips fabric spray paint. When you use these once just consider it an addiction. I promise you will find anything and everything to spray paint.

darby-smart-tulip-spray-paint

The first thing you want to do is place the stencil on the bag where you want it. I wanted to use the entire stencil since the each cassette was uniquely designed. I used a little tacky spray on the back of stencil to hold it in place. This really prevents it from moving while you are working with it.

I am going with a true 80′s graffiti styled bag.

DARBY-SMART-THROWBACK-BACK

Once your stencil is in place start spraying away. Since each of the metallic sprays make my eyes sing with joy I decided to use all of them. Why not! These sprays are amazing and need to be seen! When you are done let the paint dry. I usually let it sit for 1 hour before I remove the stencil.

darby-smart-80s-spray-paint-bag

The best part is when you take the stencil off. It’s like magic, y’all!  I only designed one side of the bag but you can do it on both sides or wrap the image around the entire bag. If you only want to use one of the cassettes you can place it where you want then tape off the others. Don’t you worry, I made a shirt to go with the bag also!

Happy Monday Y’all! I am sitting at home with my coffee, listening to Enya and warming up my feet with a little floor heater at my desk. I am so pumped to share with you the tutorial I did on the I Love to Create Blog. I post every two weeks there incase you didn’t know. This leather cuff tutorial brings together two different looks that anyone can sport. A soft delicate flower with a rough biker edge to it. I am not quite sure if the two actually go together but I loved it. Once I made it I realized how cool it would be if I had a “collection” of leather cuffs. I mean one for each holiday, season etc. I think it’s a huge statement piece and you can never go wrong with a leather cuff. You could give these as Christmas presents, wedding favors, or just get a group of your friends together and make them!

This leather cuff tutorial is easy enough to whip out 5 in no time. Seriously when you see how easy it is you will be amazed. I hope you enjoy it.

Hooo Rahhhh Hooo Rahhh! All aboard on the crafty caboose y’all. It’s that day of the week where me and my friends will show you some fabulous SUMMER CRAFTS , sha-bang! I hope these projects encourage you to start crafting cause they are all super cuhyute. Don’t forget to give them all some LOVE, cause they give love back!

SUMMER CRAFTS 1.  It’s like a two in one deal y’all! Mark Montano mixed two pretty cool ingredients together and BAM he, this came out!

2.  Like Modest Mouse once said and we ALL FLOAT ON. I have always wanted to be a “floater” so I guess I will make this and become one. Margot Potter makes the COOLEST projects so make sure and see just HOW she made this necklace

3.  Cawww Cawww (yes that is a bird noise) I love the way Cathie Filian‘s bird charm ring came out. Wait till you see just how easy it is to make.

4.   What!? Nautical HOME DECOR with plain ole party supplies. ARrrrrrrrrrr…. I am loving this and I know you will do thanks to Heather Mann.

5.  We all know you have fabric “scraps”. Or maybe you throw yours away. When you see what Crafty Chica does with her scraps you will surely save yours! These earring’s surely will be on my ears SOON!

6.  Last but not least, check out my latest “undies” tutorial. You can really see what my undies LOOK LIKE!

SUMMER CRAFTS are always fun especially when you have friends and family to share them with.  All of these crafts would be great things to bring on summer vacations. You could also give them as birthday presents!

I can’t think of anything else besides tie dyed undies today. I never in a million years thought I would ever do a tutorial on Tie-Dyed Undies but hold on to your crafty seat belts because I did! Tie-Dyed Undies may seem like something that is not that common but today we will change everyones perspective. Of course you can go to ton’s of expensive stores to buy fancy lil undies but get ready to spend 30 bucks on 4 pairs. See, I don’t roll like that. I like to “jaderbomb” everything in my life including my undies. I have to wear them so why not feel fashionable.

Incase you don’t know every two weeks I write for the I love to create blog. I actually look forward to this post every week. So the second and fourth Tuesday you can find me and a new craft up on the blog.

(P.S. I am actually blogging today wearing a new pair of Tie-Dyed undies)

Cute Tie Dyed Undies

I am super happy with the way they turned out and believe it or not it is my FIRST time crafting with undies. It was so much fun, so you can look forward more. I already have 2 different tutorials in mind dealing with undies. Phew!

I want to give a SHOUT OUT to the winner of Martha Stewart’s new book, Crafts for Kids. Wahhhh freaking Hooooo!

 Who would of thunk it! Paper Reinforcements make it so easy to get a perfect well polished DIY french manicure. I am loving this because I personally will not pay anyone for a manicure. Listen, this is so easy that I did it while I was actually working. Imagine that! I have tried using tape but the polish usually goes under it in some spots. Not good for me, hehe.  Check out my UP inspired nails, they are so cute. Here is a DIY craft you can do with polish also! How fun!

DIY french manicure

Let’s get started:

Step 1: Paint your base coat first. The most important thing is to make sure the base coat is completely DRY before moving on to step 2.

Step 2: Place your reinforcements directly onto the nail tips like the picture above. You can decide how thick you want your tip to be. If you mess up while applying it on your nail you can gently remove the reinforcement and re-apply it.

Step 3:  Paint the tips

Step 4: Remove the reinforcements as soon as you are done painting. If the paint dries before you peel it off, it can pull off some of the polish on the tip.

Step 5: ENJOY your beautiful new nails!

I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial on getting a perfect manicure.

See ya in the next post
