1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: I want to make my own three ring binder!! on: August 28, 2010 12:03:51 PM
7 Gypsies makes a line of ringed blank books that you can put together yourself. http://www.capaper.com/c=rtx9p1PVfMYoSNLdoW2phbEqE/category/ark_7_gypsies/

They sell the boards and the rings separately, as well as in kits.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / What paper to use, and where do you get it? on: August 28, 2010 09:55:27 AM
Alright, I've had it. I've searched all over the internet for weeks and spent some time searching and re-searching this forum, but couldn't find my answer. So I shall ask  Smiley

I need to know how the other talented artisans get their paper!

Do you buy it on rolls? And where from?

I'm talking about the smooth finish, writing paper for a typical journal - no crazy art journals or anything.

I've found a website with pre-sewn text blocks, but prefer to sew them myself.

So what's the easiest, most economical way to get a whole bunch of paper?

(Up until this point, I've pretty much been using high-quality copy paper. Southworth resume paper and the like, 8 1/2 by 11.)

Or maybe I'm just being crazy, and there is no secret way to get paper? Maybe everyone uses those stacks of 500-sheet resume paper in ivory?

Please help!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Fitted sweater with cables and bobbles from Rowan Vintage Knits on: April 27, 2009 12:05:37 PM
The sweater is beautiful! I am doing my first cable project now and I love the texture too! Cheesy  I have never worked with a tweed yarn before but it looks really good in this pullover, I might have to try some soon.

and I just had to add - stitch81 I adore your avatar! It made me laugh to see that someone else has crazy laundry-basket cats besides myself! haha  Grin

Haha looks like you've been swamped by a big crafty board full of females!  Cheesy

I love the asymmetry of the shorts that's created by the side cables. I agree with Stellaheartocean - I probably wouldn't knit these for myself in wool, but they'd look lovely in cotton too. My only question is: does the ribbing at the top hold them up, or did you have to sew/knit in elastic??

Sorry Sad  Yes, haha, and oddly enough, it had nothing to do with this post! The lovely lady who bought it was happy that it came up in a search, and is giving it as a graduation present to a good friend  Smiley

Wow that's so detailed! I love how you have your own interpretation of the character - I can really see the emotion in her face!

Thanks so much to everyone for the amazing compliments! I've never had a project this well-received on craftster before haha  Cheesy  A quote book would be an awesome idea. It would also work well for lyrics. I was also thinking that since the pages are small, it could also be used as a memorandum of daily events, like people used to keep a long time ago - an entry could be like, "Walked the dog. Got some amazing alpaca yarn from M. Going to make gloves." Etc. Or something like that.

You guys have such wonderful ideas!

This is absolutely gorgeous, but I must ask - it is useful? Or is it the sort of pretty book that sits on a table for everyone to admire?
(Edit: sorry if that sounded rude, I didn't mean it like that!)

No worries, I know exactly what you mean. It could be useful...it works and all lol. It would depend on whether or not the user had inhibitions about the "prettiness" of it. Personally, I could probably never write in it because I would end up making mistakes, having to rip out pages, etc... However, there are a lot of people who journal who don't care about the mistakes they make because a journal is supposed to be a place to keep your innermost thoughts. So in that sense, the aesthetic quality would be meant especially for the person who used it, because someone who journals doesn't want it left out on a table for everyone to admire - they want a special place to keep their private thoughts.

I would like a way to incorporate this sort of thing into a more useful creation, though, if anyone has any ideas. Maybe a photo album/wedding keepsake, as someone mentioned earlier? It would take a lot of clay, but it might be worth it...

Oh I see. So I was on the completely wrong track haha  Cheesy

Ah, stamps. And I noticed the glossiness, it really makes the bright colors stand out  Grin
