291  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Summer inchies on: May 24, 2008 01:13:06 PM
It's summer! Time for some hot weather inchies.  Smiley



These were done with painted and inked backgrounds, a collage sheet from Alpha Stamps, some typed words, and little confetti stars. Surf's up!
292  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Altered Ancestors Gallery! on: May 01, 2008 06:58:03 AM
For this swap, each of us sent the other participants a couple of old photos of our parents, grandparents, or just people to whom we wished we were related! Everyone chose a photograph to work with and then altered it to suit its subject before returning it to its family. Here's a link to the original swap.

And here's what we came up with:

297  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Miyazaki swap- one angel FOUND! on: March 17, 2008 11:10:32 AM
Despite waiting patiently, we have come to the sad conclusion that silverstah will need an angel for the Miyazaki swap. She and her partner agreed to do a larger swap - 1 small, 2 medium, and 2 large. She says she will perfectly happy for her Angel to stick to the original swap guidelines, which were 1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large, but if you can do more, that would be great.  Smiley

silverstah lives in the US. I'd like the angel to try to send by March 31. Please pm me if you're interested.

Thanks to the_trademarks!

GALLERY!

Swap name: Altoid tin and ephemera swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rackycoo
Sign-up date range: March 17-March 26 at 12:00 EST
Date to send item by: April 9

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

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

Age requirement? 16+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES/NO
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES/NO
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES/NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES/NO


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES/NO

Details of swap: If you're anything like me, you have a little stash of Altoid tins just aching to be decorated (OK, I admit it, my stash is HUGE), plus a few drawers or envelopes full of fun ephemera that would be perfect for the job! You would also appreciate some new ephemera in exchange for some of what you already have.

For this swap, you will decorate an Altoid tin inside and out, and then stuff it full of fun ephemera. Think tickets, pretty stamps, parts of foreign text...anything you can get in there. If your partner indicates an interest, you may also include fun brads and/or metal accessories. You may only send what fits inside the tin, so this will be a fun, easy swap. Please send nice things that you would be happy to receive!

The tins will make a padded envelope thick enough for a dc number, so if you're sending within the States, dc's will be required. Some people have asked about using tins that are similar in size to Altoid tins. That is perfectly fine, as long as the size is close. I'm not having anyone specify a theme for the decoration of the tin, but if you wish, feel free to talk to your partner and see if they have a theme in mind. Otherwise, just make it pretty with what you have.  Smiley

One more thing: please post in this thread if you are going to participate!!

299  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Turtle swap angel FOUND! on: March 09, 2008 08:31:00 AM
Ofenjen was not only flaked on in the turtle swap back in October, her swap angel disappeared as well.  Sad

I need a good reliable angel who will make 2 medium and 2 small items to help take away that sting! Ofenjen lives in the US.

Here's the original swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197330.0

Thanks, rubytue!

Back in November, kaleesi posted this call for submissions for ATC Quarterly. Several Craftsters posted cards on that thread and submitted them, and ALL of them were featured in the ATC center spread of the magazine! Congratulations to teeisme, kaleesi, OriginalYouth, babbetto, and neverseenblue, and special congrats to appledainty, who was chosen as a featured artist for the magazine! Fantastic work, everyone. I'm so proud of you all!!
