1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Stamping on Vellum? on: November 30, 2010 01:08:24 PM
I searched the forum first and didn't find this question.  Can one stamp onto vellum paper?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Decoupage *inside* journal on: July 27, 2010 05:45:40 PM
I started decoupage with modge podge and found that it was so wet that it would make my papers wrinkly if I used it as the back adhesive.  What I do now is to use elmer's stick glue on the back of my deco piece and when it is dry, apply modge podge over it as a sealant.  Have fun and share your projects - I'd love seeing them!

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Challenge #1 on: May 14, 2010 02:35:52 PM
All the suggestions were great.

 I was thinking it would be interesting for a change to have a challenge using a specific material and the challenge would be to use it to create as many different items as possible. For example if the item was a milk carton(any size), then I could photograph it being used as a bun/hotdog warmer, solar cooker, bird feeder, pen organizer, candle mold, plant starter, party favor, loaf pan(untried, not sure if it would work), herb saver.

Iron Craftster! It's perfect! Smiley I'd be in.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Modge Podge sucks - help! on: December 18, 2009 11:19:19 AM
Okay, so Modge Podge works great on flat surfaces with thicker items. I used it successfully with tile and monopoly cards.  It had an undesired but enjoyable side effect of making the tile look like wood since it leaves these annoying streakies. But on thinner papers and curved surfaces - I can't keep it from wrinkling!

So, before I started using Modge Podge, I used Aleen's clear craft glue under things but had nothing on the top.  I want something I can use like others use modge podge but that won't 1) make ucky streaks and 2) won't wrinkle my papers to death.

Anyone have a product they think will work for me? I'd appreciate it ever so much. Smiley
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Inspiration vs. Rip-off on: December 18, 2009 11:04:43 AM
So, I downright copied someone's idea here on craftster for my boyfriend's b-day present (I'll actually post it here with a link to her original post)....but...I checked her etsy store first to try and buy the item.  It was one-of-a-kind made with pieces she only had one of.  I had no way to buy it from her so I copied it.  I ran into so many problems trying to do it and it isn't as good but it is probably good enough to make my honey happy.  When I can purchase something I want, I won't copy it.  When I can't, I'll try to copy it.

However, I also am looking at buying a bind-it-all so I can do some cute notebooks from X-Men and Fantastic Four trading cards I have.  This is almost a rip-off of the little notebooks I've seen here.  But I can't find it exactly so I'm going to make them. (they'll probably suck anyhow).  Also, someone else here posted a heavy metal playing card deck - I don't want that but I want to make some of comic book covers.  I already bought the playing card deck.  I consider this inspiration.

So, for me, I guess, the difference comes down to exact copy or duplication of method? Exact copy = rip-off if you can buy it from them. Duplication of method = inspiration (and "so that's how I can get rid of all those damn trading cards!").

My favorite is Previews Catalog/Magazine.  You can get this at your local comic book shop for a couple bucks and it's like 1,000 pages of comics and comic art.  It's some good stuff.

My current favorite is as a magnet.  I found some adhesive magnet backs that are 3/4" x 3/4" at the craft store that are absolutely perfect for the backing. Smiley
