  • Dot Your Life

    Diamond dotting with kits is fun, but have you tried Freestyle yet? It's an easy way to add dimension and sparkle to every day items, some you may never have thought of... Join us in using the Diamond Dotz® Freestyle system to dot your life!

    Pet Tag

    Your pet is already the light of your life, now you can make them look like it! With just a few materials, you can get your pet looking like the shining star that they are.

    Supplies and Tools:

    Diamond Dotz® Accessory Pack - 2-Styluses, 2 Pick-Up Wax, 2 Trays
    Diamond Dotz® Gems - Colors: 8085 and 7003
    Diamond Dotz® Freestyle Sandwich Adhesive Roll 12"x 36"
    Any Pet Tag, this one is a simple circle
    Marker or pen
    Scissors or punch

    Getting started

    To begin, you'll want to cut a piece of adhesive to the size of your tag. If you're using a common shaped tag, you'll probably be able to find a punch in the same size and shape to make a perfect template. You can also carefully hold the tag on top of the adhesive and mark around the tag, then cut around it.

    Remove both sides of the adhesive covering and place on your tag. If you want to do an initial, begin with that. This tag is going to have an M for Maisie.

    After you have your letter down, simply fill in the spaces, leaving the spot above the ring hole open so you don't remove any dots when putting the tag back on the collar.

    Once you're done dotting, put the tag onto the collar and marvel at how beautiful your pet looks! Make sure to let the resin cure before leaving it with your pet in order to eliminate possible consumption of Dotz®.

    Nails

    Whether you're quarantined and can't get to the nail salon or you just love nail art, dot accents are an easy way to get a dimensional manicured look.

    Supplies and Tools:

    Diamond Dotz® Accessory Pack - 2-Styluses, 2 Pick-Up Wax, 2 Trays
    Diamond Dotz® Gems - Colors: 8236 and 7003
    Diamond Dotz® Freestyle Sandwich Adhesive Roll 12"x 36"
    Your choice of nail polish, this is a dark green
    Any nail glue, a precision tip is very helpful

    Getting started

    Start by applying 2 coats of nail polish.

    Once your nails are dry, place a dot of nail glue in whichever spot or area you want to design. Some ideas are: lines, flowers, single dots, crosses, and diagonal lines.

    That's it! It is so simple to elevate your nails right at home just by using Diamond Dotz®.

    Planter

    Plant parenthood is real, and so is the desire to decorate and DIY plant pots. Diamond Dotz® are an easy way to create a fun design for any potted plant.

    Supplies and Tools:

    Diamond Dotz® Accessory Pack - 2-Styluses, 2 Pick-Up Wax, 2 Trays
    Diamond Dotz® Gems - Colors: 8218 and 7003
    Diamond Dotz® Freestyle Sandwich Adhesive Roll 12"x 36"
    A plant pot, this one has a faux succulent in it already but if you're not a perpetual plant killer start with an empty pot
    Scissors or a punch

    Start off by picking your design. This pot is getting triangles for a Tribal-meets-Art Deco look. Your could do dots, swirls, peace signs, candy stripes, or anything you can find or think of. To cut the triangles, simply cut a rectangle and make alternating diagonal cuts to achieve several similar triangles. You could also use a triangle punch.

    Just like with the pet tags, remove both sides of film from the sandwich adhesive and place it on your pot. Start at the top point and work your way down to achieve even placement. Continue placing triangles and dotting them until the pot is finished.

    Once again, it's as simple as that! Now your plants will glisten in the sunlight and stand out in the room.

    Bold Eyes

    Why stop at eyeliner? Line your eyes with Dotz® for a fun, embellished look!

    Supplies and Tools:

    Diamond Dotz® Gems - Color 8001
    Any lash or glitter glue
    Tweezers or Diamond Dotz® Accessory Pack
    Mascara
    Optional: Eyeliner

    Optional: Start by mapping out your shape with eyeliner. This will be easier to follow and will get covered by the Dotz®.

    Follow this look for a Mod 60s look or create your own. To achieve the 60s eye, you'll dot an arc above your crease, following your eye shape until you get to the outside. The outer part of the line should extend slightly, elongating your eyes.

    For the iconic lower lash line, place 3 dots on the outermost corner of your eye, then groups of 2 along your lash line. The inner most line should be 1 dot. Add mascara to your top lashes and you're done. Groovy!

    Phone Grip

    Get a grip on your own sparkle! Set your phone grip apart with a custom dotted design.

    Supplies and Tools:

    Diamond Dotz® Accessory Pack - 2-Styluses, 2 Pick-Up Wax, 2 Trays
    Diamond Dotz® Gems - Colors: 8085 and 7003
    Diamond Dotz® Freestyle Sandwich Adhesive Roll 12"x 36"
    A phone grip, like PopSockets
    Marker or pen
    Scissors or punch

    This may be the easiest Freestyle project you'll ever do. Just like the pet tag, start by cutting or punching your shape. Most phone grips are 1.5" in diameter. Then place your adhesive, dot your design, and you're done! A custom phone grip in under 5 steps.

    Pattern available in #7686 Simple Sparkle Jewelry

    Dotting your life is as easy as idea, execution, done. With these examples and many more to come, pretty soon you'll be living the multi-faceted life of your dreams! Happy dotting!
