2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pacman swap on: May 26, 2010 01:07:01 PM
Would anyone be interested in a Pacman swap? I'm really into playing (and crafting) it at the moment and there are heaps of Pacman inspired crafts out there. Ms. Pacman would be included too Grin I don't mind organising, though I wouldn't make it a big swap, say 1 medium and 1 small?
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pink Pirate Octopus on: May 24, 2010 12:05:02 AM
I just finished the Favourite Colour swap and this was on my partners wists and soon as I saw it I just had to make one. I came up with the pattern myself and it took me awhile to put it all together, but it was all worth it as I'm quite happy with the results. As you can tell her favourite colour is pink Grin
So here are the pics:







I'm making another one this week for her son but in blue!

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Toy Story, Dog and Craft Layouts on: April 29, 2010 02:25:12 PM
Here are some pics of what I made for my partner for the recent scrapbook swap. From her list of themes I went with Toy Story, dog, and a double layout for her craft theme (to scrap the crafts she makes) All the layouts are 8x8 pages.
Heres the Toy Story layout:


and the dog themed one, the paw print is a photo matt, I got it from  Scrap Matts and you pop a photo under each hole of the doggy paw print, I dressed it up with some rhinestones.


and this is the first page for the double layout, the white squares are the photo matts


and the second page

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Twilight and Halloween Layouts on: February 24, 2010 01:02:51 PM
My partner has received her layouts in the 2nd round of the scrapbook swap, so here are some pics of what I made her. We had to choose from a list of our partners themes and I went with Twilight and Halloween.

First is the Twilight layout, I used primas for the flowers and lots of little rhinestone bling to make flourishes coming from the flowers (I actually put each rhinestone on individually to form the flourishes, it's hard to get decent photos of them) and I also added a crystal heart and howling wolf to the layout that represents Bellas bracelet. I made a hidden journalling spot under the quote on the page which also has a pic of the cast from the movie.

With the flap opened:

Closeup of the charms:



and here is a pic of the halloween layout which I had fun putting together, the patterned paper is imaginisce and I also used glitter clears from making memories, it was the first time I've used liquid scrap dots as well. I made the photo frame on this one so the photo actually slides in and out
