It isn’t too early to be inspired to create for Valentines! Here are 16 ideas to consider creating for this celebration of love!
I love this little book that Innovation Team Member Stephanie Gard Buss created for Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. Stephanie created a wonderful pair of earrings for this project, but can you imagine a little book like this with sweet nothings written in the inside?
Nothing says love like a sweet heart charm. Add it as a statement or as an accent. In this piece, I colorized resin to create this unique look.

Here is another way to secretly incorporate those sweet nothing messages of love! Innovation Team Member Donna Musarra created this beautiful Glass Keepsake Pendant with a note that was covered in resin and scrolled up inside. Granted, these sweet nothings could be love letters to oneself!!! Ohhh…I’m so doing that!
And here, Haylee Troncone, incorporated her words on the outside of our glass vials that our chatons come packaged in.

Add a collage sheet image with Nunn Design 2 Part Resin, or add Mica Powders to Nunn Design 2 Part Resin to create these great Valentine treasures!
VIDEO: Although this video covers making a druzy style piece, the coloring of the resin with the mica powders is still helpful to create a piece like Stephanie’s above.
TUTORIAL: Here is a great blog post covering the step-by-step for creating Keepsake Pendants with Collage Sheets and Resin.
Designer: Erin Prais-Hintz
Innovation Team Member Erin Prais-Hintz is the master of creating beautiful polymer clay pendants. Erin used a Nunn Design Transfer Sheet image over her polymer clay to create the black graphic swirls. She then sealed her piece to provide protection from wear and tear, but you could also cover with Nunn Design 2 Part Resin.
TUTORIAL: Here is a blog post walking you through the steps for creating with Transfer Sheets and Resin
Karen McGovern is always creating something new and fun. I love how she cut out a piece of textured metal to create this heart shaped pocket pendant.
You can embed so many different items into Crystal Clay. Here you see samples of crystals and beads, but don’t let that limit your creative muse. Push the envelope and try nailing down the cats fuzzy fur!!! Now that is pet dedication!
TUTORIAL: Here is a tutorial on Embedding Stones, but there are several other tutorials showing crystals.

I hope you are inspired to speak the language of love by creating special tokens of your affection for this Valentine Season. Could someone hold me accountable for making something for my husband? That man so deserves some lovin!
