Hooray! Football Season is Upon Us!

Please welcome Martha D. as our guest blogger today. She is so creative & is graciously sharing her talent with us today!

First I would like to thank Jamie for asking me to be a guest blogger - it is such an honor! By the way my name is Martha and if you are like me then you are super glad that football season is FINALLY here! What a better way to show off your team spirit then with some jewelry – a football charm necklace!

Supplies I used:

I first made the crystal charm. I took the silver ball point head pin and threaded the rondelles and crystal bead.
Once they were threaded I bent the wire at a 90°. Then take your pliers and bend the wire into a loop, cut off excess of wire and close the loop.


I then cut out the lace for the football out of white glitter HTV – 1.5” x .75” – and the number to 3/8 of an inch by ½ an inch long with my Cricut.
 

I placed the lace on the football, covered with parchment paper and pressed.  BTW, the lace files for the necklace I am sharing here!
 *** Repeat this step for the quatrefoil charm. ***


Once football and quatrefoil are pressed or Oracal 651 vinyl has been placed we are ready to assemble.


Open one jump ring and join the necklace with the football. Close jump ring.


Repeat on the other side.
Next, place a jump ring on the crystal charm and another on the quatrefoil charm. Close them up. Now use another jump ring to join the charms together with the necklace – that’s it!


All that is left now is to show it off!
Have fun creating!
Martha

Free Fonts

Now it's not a secret I love fonts and I know there are several closet font lovers out there too! My favorite safe sites to download free fonts for (personal use mostly) are Dafont.com, FontSquirrel.com and FontSpace.com . There are other websites but be careful if you use them as really horrible viruses can be downloaded from some of those sites.

Recently I came across a new safe website with lots of cute, free fonts! So I wanted to share with you all, www.kevinandamanda.com/fonts . They are a font of fonts! Pun intended  :)

Have fun adding to your collections and share your favorite free fonts websites!
