Hey Chicago Whaddya Say, the Cubs Are Gonna Win Today! Go Cubs Go!

9626523-mlb-nlcs-los-angeles-dodgers-chicago-cubs-1-850x560

What an exciting World Series baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians! WOW! I’ve never seen a more fun, nail-biter of a game! Thankfully our beloved Cubbies FINALLY after 108 years, became champions once again!

Although I’m from Arizona, my hubby Mike has been a die-hard Cubbies fan for his whole life. So if my Hubby’s a Cubbie, I’m a Cubbie 🙂

His dreams came true when his brother, who lives in Chicago, called him up last week and said, I have tickets to the World Series games 4 & 5, do you wanna go? Well…it took 0.2 seconds for him to say YES!!!

I was so excited for him! He was going to be staying at his brother & sister-in-law’s house and I thought, how fun would it be to bling out some little Cubs shirts for his 18 month old niece! I quickly got to work and here’s what I made…P.S. I love them so much!

diy-instructions-on-how-to-glue-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt

I printed out the Cubs logo and cut out the area that I wanted to add my Swarovski Crystals. Bling-Bling-Baby!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-cubs-emblem

I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal Hot Fix Flat Back stones on this one, which was a perfect size for making two rows of crystals for the big C.

diy-swarovski-crystal-cubs-shirt-instructions

After placing the crystals in the C, I started heating up my iron. I used a pieces of thin parchment-like paper and softly laid it on top of the stones. Then I pressed the iron down on the C. I pressed hard and held it there for several minutes. I kept doing this process for several more minutes. I checked the stones one by one, to make sure they were secure and if I found a loose one, I used the Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool to secure it in place.

So CUTE! I love how the clear crystals match the clear crystal buttons on this little sweater.

I didn’t stop there….my next one was an iconic picture with much more detail. Drum roll please….

holy-cow-sparkling-shirt-diy-cubs

Well… Holy Cow, it’s Harry Caray!

What a fun guy he was and it was fun to pay tribute to him and his iconic over-sized glasses! I used the 2078-12ss Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks for the details of his eyes, smile chin and hair and the rest I used the 2078-30ss Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones. These are the sizes that I liked best, but Swarovski offers a large variety of sizes,colors and styles for all of your crystal projects. Plus, you can’t beat our wholesale prices on all your favorite Swarovski Crystals!

I’m not done yet! Third times a charm, right?! We needed all the luck we could get! I had one more pink T-shirt I wanted to bling out, so I went with a classic Cubs logo for the last one and I made an extra girly, extra sparkly one!

diy-blinged-out-cubs-shirt

Go Cubs Go!

I used the same C cut out as the first one, but this time I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the extra brilliance. It shines pinks, blues and yellow sparkles! I used the 2078-16ss Swarovski Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the UBS.

I had so much fun making these sparkling Swarovski Crystal shirts for our sweet little niece, everyone loved how they turned out and I’m sure she will be wearing one of them for the victory parade today!

Yay Cubbies!

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Embellished Bib Necklace Inspirations

Swarovski_Crystal_Flatback_Rhinestone_Necklace_Design_Inspiration

Welcome to the fun and creative world of Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks!

Not only are crystal rhinestones stunning, colorful and extremely versatile in sizes and styles, they are fun and easy to apply to just about any surface you can imagine. If you like to create and wear stunning sparkles, utilizing these beauties is a no-brainier!

This gorgeous crystal necklace features a top row of the Swarovski 2520 Cosmic Flatbacks in Jet, accentuated by three rows of smaller  round Swarovski 2088 Xirius Flatbacks in Black Diamond. The larger focal point is designed using the Swarovski 2585 Graphic Flatbacks in various sizes and colors such as Denim Blue, Aquamarine, Crystal Antique Pink, Amethyst  and Black Diamond.

Swarovski_Crystal_Bib_Necklace_Design_Inspiration

This adorably fashionable collar necklace features Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatbacks that have glue that has been pre-applied to the back for easy application with a Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool. The Swarovski Crystals include the 2078 XIRIUS Flatbacks Chalkwhite Hot Fix, White Opal Hot Fix, and Crystal Hot Fix, along with the 2080/4 Cabochon Crystal White Pearl Hot Fix, and the 2585 Graphic Flat Back Crystal Hot Fix. A black satin ribbon is tied onto the bottom for extra sweetness.

The Swarovski Crystal Graphic family, consisting of Flat Backs, Fancy Stones and Pendants, reflect the global emphasis on individuality and the corresponding importance of modular families of products. This radiant clan is defined by an astonishingly versatile geometric cut—a cut that brilliantly addresses design’s current love affair with androgyny, as well as acknowledging the major trend for updated classics.

Bejeweler Pro Rhinestone Applicator for Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks

Create designer fashions and accessories in seconds! The BeJeweler Pro Hot Fix Applicator allows you to embellish any porous item from many clothing options such as shirts, jeans and dresses to hats, purses and various accessories, flip flops, sandals, paper, gifts, costumes, wedding embellishments, invitations, picture frames, pet products and more! No need to use any additional glue, The BeJeweler Pro will pick up your Swarovski Hot Fix Flat Backs quickly and easily. Place the Rhinestone setter directly on top of the Swarovski Crystal Rhinestone and the heat activated glue on the back will adhere to the surface below.

The sparkling interplay between rough and smooth faceting creates an attraction of opposites, giving timeless style a modern, organic twist and ensuring the longevity of the Graphic family’s appeal. Easily integrated into a variety of designs, the strength of its adaptability lies in its affordable pricing and its minimalist look—a feature that also makes this family of crystals ideal for using in unisex designs.

Crystal Katana for applying Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks

The Crystal Katana Tool is a fabulous tool for applying Non Hot Fix crystals to surfaces using glue. The sticky end of the tool allows you to pick up the crystals simply and effectively place them into the glue. The metal end of the tool allows you to press the crystal gently into the glue for maximum hold and durability. I love using this brilliant tool, it is so much faster than beeswax or tweezers and there is no more mess or frustration when placing the crystals into the glue. It’s fabulous and I guarantee, you will love it too!

Crystal Collar Necklaces Design Inspirations

I hope these designs inspire you to create  your own stylish collar necklaces that are embellished with as much or as little sparkle as your heart desires!
