11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Shaving Cream Cards-- With Tutorial--MUST TRY! on: February 01, 2010 11:48:02 AM
I used the Barbasol brand.  Im thinking I used too much of both as I got the bleeding through and my cardstock shriveled some after drying.  I think my other mistake was really pressing the cardstock into the cream and not letting it just sit on top.  Im attacking it again either today or tomorrow. I just get frustrated when I see something that seems so easy, that for me, it turns out so complicated!   Angry

*YIKES!! I just made my first two and the food coloring bled through the cardstock!
Am I using too much shaving cream, too much food coloring or both?

This seems too simple to mess up......but then again, I didnt inheritate my mother's crafting abilities.   Cry

*DOH!*   That seems easy enough....thanks!!  Here I was trying to imagine only putting cream in half the container.  Hopefully if I dont score the fold, I can then run it through my printer.  Will have to try it....my printer can be a little cantankerous at times. Roll Eyes

Okie doke....dumb question time Huh.  Is the piece of paper *say cardstock* unfolded or folded?  I have the 8.5 x 11 card stock....and lots of it.....and have been racking my brain on how to get the marble pattern just on half of it if I want to fold it to make a standard size card and have the pattern on the front.

Am I making any sense at all???   LOL Cheesy
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Soooooooooo..... on: September 25, 2009 12:59:31 PM
I sit down yesterday with my trusty wire, rocks I found on the beach and my tools thinking *Today is the day I learn to wrap some rocks and make pendants for necklaces!* only to realize I dont have a CLUE on where to start. I just sat there.....staring.  I have been looking all over for some direction but everything I have found requires like 6 pieces of wire!!!  I like the simple look, like the wrapping you see on sharks teeth.  I dont want to encase these stones with tons of wire, I just want to turn them into nice simple pendants without having to drill a hole!!! Smiley

Can anyone give me advice on how to start?  Do I need to start with 2 pieces of wire or can I use just one.....or both???  Im so confused.......

TIA!

Im curious about something.  My husband and I just got back from a 2 week stay at Myrtle Beach, and I found all kinds of shell pieces and Ocean *rocks* as I like to call them.  I want to turn these into necklaces and such.  Is there anything I need to do to the shells to prep them for jewelry making, like soaking them in bleach or anything? 

TIA!!

Thanks much!!  That was what I was thinking, but after reading some of the *can use, cant use* discussisons, I didnt want to take it for granted.   Grin

I got the whole photograph, magazine, image copyright thing, but I couldnt find the answer to this:

I have an idea for Christmas ornaments involving photos.  The idea is for customers to send me photos that they would like to preserve, i.e. their kids, pets, vacations, etc.  If I use these photos, and sell the finished product BACK to them, this should be all hunky dory right???  *I just wanna make sure   Grin*

Firemountaingems.com also has a great tutorial section on their website as well.  I learned a great deal on making the loops that way Grin

Have a great time learning and doing!!!
