631  Frames & photo scrapbook in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sweets4ever on: December 22, 2006 05:31:15 AM
I made these for a swap. Smiley

Her favorite color is green, so I took a plain black frame & color washed it with metallic green and topaz.
Then I decorated it with tumbled carnelians, rhinestones and a colorful glass piece.

I took a funky white frame and covered/sealed it with tons and tons of seed beads (so many layers!).

This is little photo scrapbook.
I used it as part of the swap, but I figured she could remove the photos I have in it and use it again after the swap. Smiley

My little craft foam camera guy. Cheesy

632  Bowl made from raffle tickets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: December 22, 2006 05:24:59 AM
I made this for a swap & got the idea from my partner's Wists. Smiley

She Wisted this link http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98531.0 and that link provides this link http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Ticket-Bowls_MPD325.html. Smiley

It's made from a roll of raffle tickets, decoupaged and acrylic sealed in many layers.  I wish I had a more colorful roll of tickets lying around, but at least the concept is there.

Hgflower is still scanning the actual pix, but here's pix of everything I sent her.  She's such a sweetie - I'm glad she likes everything. Smiley


Seed-beaded frame

Her favorite color is green, so I took a plain black frame & color washed it with metallic green and topaz.
Then I decorated it with tumbled carnelians, rhinestones and a colorful glass piece.

This isn't a frame, but I saw it on her Wists and had to make it for her 'cause they're so much fun!

I wanted a way for her to know what she was looking at, so as I was taking my film pictures I took duplicates with my digital camera and kept notes along my journey.

I made this little scrapbook and PhotoShopped copies of the photos in with captions/comments about each photo.
I wrapped it all up with a CD of the pictures from my digital and marked it as "Swap Spoiler Materials" in case she didn't want to spoil the fun of seeing the pictures until she had them developed.

Here are most of the pages (somehow I missed one Sad): http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweets4ever/tags/capture24swapscrapbook/
Here are the digital copies I took - I'm so happy that the ones she posted so far resemble them! lol: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweets4ever/tags/capture24swapphotos/

634  Mugs of treats (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by sweets4ever on: December 21, 2006 06:44:48 PM
I made 24 mugs of goodies for my fiance's employees for the holiday.  He wanted to get everyone something, but couldn't think of anything to purchase that everyone would enjoy and wouldn't break the bank.

Last year I made his department gel candles: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69356.0

Chocolate covered pretzels, 3 kinds - red sugar, sprinkles & peanut butter drizzles.

Stir spoons - chocolate-dipped with crushed peppermint candies.

Suckers - chocolate reindeer, santa & candy canes.

Hot cocoa "cones"

The mugs all packed with treats & ready to go - woot!

Another member, minibooger, made an AWESOME version of these and posted them later in the thread.  Check 'em out!

637  Re: Any ideas for "Handmade production line gifts"? in Winter Holidays by sweets4ever on: December 19, 2006 07:25:10 AM
I'm making presents for my fiance's employees (24 of 'em...argh!) tonight.  I'm making little gift sets of a little bit of everything from this thread:
Holiday mugs filled with...
Chocolate-dipped pretzel rods
Chocolate dipped spoons
Homemade suckers
Hot cocoa cones
A handful of sugar free candy

Last year I made these for him: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69356.0
I only had to make 14 last year, so we spent a bit more money with the gel, wicks & such.

639  Re: 3 Simple, Misc. Melted Bead Projects <IMG heavy> in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: December 18, 2006 04:11:21 AM
For the clear part, I melted clear pony beads.  Clear beads just like these...

Eek... please be careful with melting beads & your pregnancy though.  The fumes are most likely toxic.  Smiley

Most beads will melt (if they are plastic), though small beads like seed beads don't seem to or at least, I gave up on them before they had a chance to.

640  Re: Help with Centerpieces in Weddings and Bridal Showers by sweets4ever on: December 14, 2006 09:34:09 AM
Aw... those are going to look lovely with your colors!

I'd do a table runner the length of the table in purple and then your bamboo could be your green accents (you could use purple ribbons to tie the tags to them, too).

Maybe put the vase on a mirror?

I think with the vase, the crystals in the bottom, the rose, the candle and runner, much more might get to be really busy especially if you use place cards, have glasses set at the table beforehand, etc.

Here's what I was thinking, it just didn't come out as well as it looks in my head. Cheesy
