The key to my sanity {Key Pendant}

Do you ever get asked  "Where do you find the time to do all this...stuff?" 
Fact is...I don't have a good answer.  It's just something I do.  It's something I have to do.  Ideas come to me out of nowhere, and from everywhere. I have to do something about them!

If you have reading along with me at all, you know I love making little pendants from Stampbord.  I use scrapbook paper and washi tape, stamps and ink, etc.  This next one I made is one of my new favorites.


There is nothing like an antique key.  The Graphics Fairy only posted this yesterday, and I knew I had to make it "wearable."  Karen is so wonderful, she even made a silhouette example for her readers. Thank you Karen!

I used silver leaf Rub 'n Buff to cover my Stampbord--front and back.

Then, I downloaded the key to my Silhouette and cut it out of vinyl!  These little rectangles measure one inch by two inches, so it was really tiny.

After I transferred the key to the Stampbord, I rubbed a little StazOn black ink on with a paper towel.  This is the picture I took before adding Dimensional Magic and then a bail to the back.

I am digging all of the detail in this key, and the silver in the pendant.  What do you think?



  1. Love the key...I think we were both on the same latest mini has a key feature too! :)

  2. What a beautiful necklace, Christine! I wish that I could find the key to my sanity, haha! And I know just what you mean about needing to create! I thought about you the other day when I was shopping at Michael's. I spotted an entire section of supplies that I wasn't familiar with, and that I knew nothing about. I thought to myself "Christine would know just what to do with this stuff!", as you always are up on all of the latest goodies!!!

  3. Christine, I love that I always learn about new products and new techniques when I visit here! I always come away feeling inspired and that I've gained so much!


I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
