Project DIY: Your Projects in February 2014

We don’t know if it’s just the shortened month, but it seems like February just flew by! Our subscribers have been busy bees working on their Project DIY collections, and really customizing and personalizing each piece. Here are some of our favorite projects from this month to help inspire your creativity! Punk and Film Noir Combination

We love how Instagrammer @PrincessLeighLeigh combined the Punk Revival and Film Noir collections! And the pom pom trim she used in the Femme Fatale necklace? So on trend.

Stylecaster Project DIY Collections

Stylecaster got in on the fun by creating four different collections!! They all look fabulous, but we should ask them which THEY liked the most!

Rain Blanken Film Noir

Rain Blanken, DIY guru from About.com, came to visit us and spoke with lead designer Michelle Levy about Project DIY! She made some pretty cool customized pieces from the Film Noir collection before heading back to her home state. Hope you come back into the city soon Rain!

Sketch 42 Film Noir Camera Strap

One of our favorite bloggers, Nicole from Sketch 42, modified the convertible belt into a cool camera strap! Pretty perfect for such a great photographer.

Top DIYs for Spring

5

We love looking at bloggers for inspiration. We’re often in awe by the amount of talent and dedication of the DIY Blogger community. Many DIY Bloggers are influenced by runway trends, street style looks or materials at local stores. Using these ideas, they create pieces that replicate store bought items. Rather than keeping these gems to themselves, they generate an audience by sharing their crafts and welcoming others to tackle their projects as well. Following step by step guides each blogger demonstrates how to achieve the desired demonstration. Even though we have tons of ideas about how to use our trims we’re often amazed by the creations we come across. Feel free to tweet, or Facebook us some of you own DIY projects. We’d love to see what you’ve created!

Here are some of our favorite DIYs that are perfect for spring.

M&J Trimming at The Bar

Around the holidays is when we spend the most time getting together with groups of friends and family.  So it only makes sense that it is, also, the time when tons of crafting parties happen!  The wonderful team over at Bauble Bar brought together some of the most influential and beautiful fashion bloggers, such as My Style Pill, Keiko Lynn, and Style and Pepper to create DIY jewelry boxes using our rhinestones and sequins.  We love the what they came up with!  Do you?
