there have been a few topics that i have been following recently and one of the just got locked. i believe it was because of non-topic related discussion. which was caused by certain posts being deleted. this topic was based on a rather political craft that cause some interesting debate. in my own opinion, i thought it was related to the craft, since it was what sparked all the conversation in the first place. now i am not trying to say anything bad about the mods who oversee boards at all, in fact i appreciate all that you do. but in this particular situation, they said posts were deleted because they were ones asking why posts were deleted, and taking up space that wasn't related to the main topic. well, it seems to me that after this was posted 2 or 3 times, they were taking up as much off-topic space as the others. so i just wondered, when a post is deleted, could the poster be like pm'd as to why their post was deleted? this way it saves topic space on all the posts asking why things were deleted and the posts explaining why things were deleted. seeing as i'm not a moderator, i don't know if this is possible or not, but it seems like it would work in my head. that way (hopefully) topics creating good discussion can stay on topic and not get locked. once again, this wasn't meant to say that anyone had bad judgement as to what was posted or if it should be deleted or not, i just thought this might save room and allow for discussion sparked from crafts.
i absolutly love this collage. i used pictures of old barns that i found in a smithsonian magazine. i just mod podged the pictures onto elmers foamboard i believe it's called. all in all, took me about 10 minutes and i love the result.
yay! i love my old school mario notebook. i just googled a bunch of mario pictures and cut them out. then i covered the front and back of my notebook in coordinating paper and glued my pictures on. then i "laminated" it with packing tape.
do you have a favorite crafting tip?? something that was told to you or that you came up with on your own? not necessarily a how-to, more like a helpful bit of info. let's all share ours.
when i print images off the computer for decoupaging or scrapbooking, i like to use soft gloss photo paper. but when i cut them out, sometimes the oil or sweat on my hands smear the picture. so i bought a cheap pack of latex gloves and wear those when i cut. that way my pictures are intact and the ink that used to get on my hands doesn't mess up other parts of my projects.
so..i'm totally in love with paper dolls. i used to have a lot when i was little..(not that long ago..only about 12 yrs ago). but my mom threw them all out. so i'd like to try to restart my collection. do any of you have some favorite paper dolls, or really good places to find them? i have googled, and come up with some. but i'd also like the input of you.
so, today i just bought a xyron 150. it's the sticker maker. ($8 bucks, what a steal!) and i LOVE it! so i'm considering purchasing the xyron 900. i'm pretty sure i would use it all the time, but i would like some imput of people who have one/have used one. i've also been looking for a price, and i can't seem to find one on the internet. any ideas on it??
