Lately I've been making envelopes. When I use them myself, I use regular double sided tape. However, I'm looking for double sided tape with a peel off label so that I can give the envelopes to people and they will be "complete"/ easy to seal. That way that adhesive is already on there and they can seal them when their ready to send.
For those of you who use something similar, where do you buy yours? I've been looking online with little results but I might be calling it the wrong thing?
I made this stuffie for a friend's little girl, obsessed with anything fairy or princess. I felt like an idiot when I realized I put the opening on the top, won't do that next time! But I figured, oh well, a three year old isn't going to complain. Don't be frightened by the scary fairy statue. That's something my boyfriend thrifted a long time ago, whoever painted it had issues
I'm big on quotes. I'm always spouting 'em off and I carry a notebook because I'm always writing 'em down. I knew right away that I wanted to participate in this challenge (it's my first one here on good ol' Craftster) however, I had a hard time picking what stitch. I didn't want to do something too personal as I don't keep much of what I stitch, and I wanted to be able to give it to someone. Although, I truly respect and thank those of you who did expose a personal side in this challenge, that takes a lot. I decided on this quote because Martin Luther King, Jr was such a wise leader, focused on achieving his goals without resorting to violence. And preventing domestic violence is about so much more than domestic violence. It's about teaching love and respect. Simple concept that is universally understood but not easily achieved. Violence begets more violence, and carries over into areas outside of the home. Violence needs to be stopped on all of these level.
And so now I will step down off of my soap box and let you see some pictures.
Hopefully, it's not too late to enter. It's nearly 10 here in CA, however when I uploaded my photos to craftster they say 10/19 now, hmmm.
Since I've joined in the ATC fun I've posted on here a few times. So I've decided I'll just keep em all in one place from now on. Hopefully, I'll show some improvements in my new found paper craft skills as time goes by Since last time:
Thanks for looking. Questions, comments, and rude remarks are always welcome!
Hey there fellow crafters! I don't know about you guys but I love vintage photos. I always pick them up when I'm out thrifting. I scan them so that I can use them for ATCs and art journals. I thought you guys might like them too. Let me know if you do, and I'll post more on here.
These are two of my favorites. I call the top one, "Baby's 1st Steps"
I whipped these guys up because I have dozens, er, thousands of little precut fabric squares. Someday I plan to make a quilt with the squares but until then they are just gathering dust and need love! Made em with the yoyos, button and quilting clips. For scale, these puppies are little!
I decided that I need another crafty hobby...well, not really, but I went ahead with that idea anyways. Go with your first instinct, right? My very first ATCs! This little guy was made of scraps from my jar and then emboidered.
This little gal was whipped up using magazine scraps and recycled tissue paper.
