282  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / [complete] Papercraft Challenge 10 "Zetti turkeys"! Discussion on: October 26, 2007 11:09:06 AM
Those crazy zetti turkeys managed to just sneak by the "grateful clowns" theme, but turkeys it is! I think this will be a really fun gallery. I hope everyone will give this one a try.

Here's all you need to do:

Make your BEST zetti turkey atc. Interpret the theme however you wish, and use what ever materials you wish. Anything goes, as long as your card is standard atc size (2 1/2" by 3 1/2")

Start up a post, and display your card on this board November 4th through the 11th. Voting will occur the week of the 12th.

***If you're not clear on what exactly the zetti style is, check out this website! Good luck everyone!
283  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another bingo book on: October 23, 2007 03:06:34 PM
I loved the book klynslis made with old bingo covers, so I thought I'd try a little variation on the theme. Here's my version, using binder rings:

After I took this picture, I added a marker doodad to the B12 space. I thought it was needed for better balance.
And, a pic of the inside:

I used heavy cardstock for the pages so it can be used as an atc holder.  Smiley

287  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Congratulations to acidtrix, our atc challenge winner!! on: October 13, 2007 12:18:19 PM
A big congratulations to acidtrix, whose Halloween atc was hands down winner in this month's contest. Here's the winning card:

Beautiful! All the cards were lovely (as always!), but this one struck a cord with a majority of the voters.

acidtrix is a relative newcomer to the atc board. Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot more of her work around here soon!

Way to go, acidtrix!
288  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / October Tip-in journal swap on: October 09, 2007 02:33:31 PM

In order to participate in this swap, you MUST procure this type of 5" by 7" journal: http://www.dickblick.com/zz118/12/. It doesn't matter where you get it, but it must be this brand and size. Its item number is LNW102, and its ISBN is 0-7376-1534-6. (These numbers are off the black journal; the colored books may have slightly different numbers.) We will be gently opening up the spiral-type bindings of these books and sending a decorated page only to our partners. It is essential everyone have the same type of book so they can rebind their book at home. The theme for the pages will be "letters and numbers", but this is a very open theme. For examples of pages done in this theme in the past, you may want to look at the last US Journal swap gallery here.

Our long discussion about this swap can be found here.

Still with us? Then sign up already!  Cheesy
Swap name: Tip in with a twist
Craftster members who are organizing this swap: rackycoo and amaryllisroze
Sign-up date range: October 9 through October 23
Date to send item by: Various deadlines for pages, first deadline: November 7

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO, and participants must be willing to send outside their own country.

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  18+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
Everyone will decorate the outside of their journal in any way they like, and post pics in our gallery. After the covers are done, you will be assigned a partner and you will send each other one decorated page from your book. The page should be decorated both front and back. You can either have them match, coordinate, or be totally different from each other. The back should have some artist info on it, such as your signature, your username, location and the date. There will be multiple rounds, so everyone will have a chance to swap with all participants. Officially, there will be 2 weeks between sends, but if you are a habitual early sender and someone else is "available" to swap with, you may choose to get assigned another partner sooner. You may elect to wait until the next official pairing, though. DCs will not be required, but please plan on resending if your page gets lost in the mail.

The link to Dick Blick is one place you can get the book, but I'm sure there are more sources. You may want to check around the web, or look in at your local art store. If you can't find one, you may want to pm someone you know and trust who's participating, and ask them about a private swap. Make sure you trust them, because there can be no angels for the private swaps for the journal that don't work out.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here! I'm not going to pretend that this can't be a bit confusing.  Cheesy

Also, please post in this thread if you are joining. It will be our main means of communication. Happy tip-in swapping!

Name of swap: Tip in with a twist
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? Yes, as this is required.

*Please do not apply if you have a habit of being late without communication in swaps, as we will most likely be disinclined to allow you to join.*


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

If your name is red, you have your book at home.  If you have a smiley, you have posted your cover.

289  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / [complete] Papercraft Challenge 9 - Voting "VINTAGE HALLOWEEN" ATC! on: October 07, 2007 07:05:20 AM
I think it's fitting that there are 13 entries for the Halloween atc challenge. As in other months, it's going to be very difficult to chose a favorite. Therefore, you can have up to two votes this month. Voting will run from now until October 13 (ooo, spooky day!)

Good luck everyone, and thanks for playing!

290  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tip in journal swap with a bit of a twist on: October 01, 2007 07:08:21 AM
amaryllisroze and I are working on coming up with another journal swap. We, along with kaesea, goatgoddess, katxena, and Stifflersmom, have been doing a long swap where we have been sending actual books around to each other. While it's really fun to get to see all the art and to have a complete book when the swap is done, it's getting expensive to mail them out every couple of weeks. It's so much fun, though, that we don't want to quit!

Here's where the twist comes in. We thought we would find an art journal with a removable spiral binding, and everyone that joins the swap would be required to buy that same book. Then, everyone could do art on the pages of their book and mail it on to their partners, who could assemble their book at home. It won't be as neat as getting a book in the mail, but it will be a lot cheaper, and could open the swap up internationally.

If we have a ton of people, we could split into groups, and multiple rounds are certainly a possibility. What we need to do is find the perfect journal. I've been searching online at Dick Blick, but suggestions are welcome. What do you think?

Here are links to the two galleries of our US journal swap:

Round two
