1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craftster Card Swap Round 2 on: February 22, 2017 09:35:38 PM
I know there is interest in this. I need to go back and read the discussions in the gallery and original thread because I know that we had discussed using baby pictures, pet photos and something else.

The concept is that you make a trading card of yourself to trade with your Craftster friends. One side has an image or photo (or stamp or stencil) of your beautiful Craftster face. The back of the card has fun facts about you - anything you are happy to share. The cards are 2.5" by 3.5" - standard ATC or playing card size.

Okay, discuss.

(I'm thinking April and May for this - I'd like a bit more crafting time than the first time. 3 or 4 weeks maybe.)

Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style, in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it flat(ish), and 4 inches by 6 inches in size. You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  You also have to "check in" with me, the organizer approximately a week after the sign ups close - this lets me know that you are ready to send. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the swap. You will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 1 week after check in period to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: February 4 - February 15, 2017
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW Feb. 4 to Feb. 20
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of Feb. 16 - Feb 20. Anyone who has not checked in by 7PM (PST) on Feb. 20th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed no later than February 21, 2017.
~ You must ship February 22 - 28, 2017.

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Bird, Bee and Butterfly on: January 31, 2017 01:00:19 PM
Had this stuck in my head all morning - one bird thing, one bee thing and one butterfly thing.

3 smalls each featuring one of these themes. Or one medium and two smalls. (I'm not really well versed in the small/medium/large kinds of swaps but we can discuss.)

The main thing is the critters and incorporating them into crafty stuffs.

Let me know what you think.




5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 3-Tiered Collage Journal on: January 22, 2017 12:51:45 PM
This is a 3-tiered collage journal - inspired by Karla Alg/kagedfish. My book is smaller than the one she makes in the tutorial because I just used a piece of cardboard I had in my stash:

 


Here is the tutorial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZi3RzZRoq8&t=1009s


This book has 9 signatures with 3 pages in each. I used a Recollections card stock set from Michaels (can't beat the $2 price tag!) Here is the first set of three signatures added:



Here is the completed book:




My pages are 2.5" tall and 4.25" wide - Karla's pages are taller.

And here are the first 3 collages - just using up leftovers and scraps:









Now the cardboard was cheap and old so when I pierced my holes with my awl, the cardboard split and cracked.
Boo hoo.




So a little duct tape fixes that problem!





Yay! Duct tape solves all the problems!

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Junk Journal Supplies/End-of-Year Destash Swap? on: November 17, 2016 11:29:13 PM
I was thinking to keep the junk journal making going - we could swap our junk for another person's junk. This is a great time of year to toss out stuff - cards and envelopes, calendar pages, unused planner accessories, scrapbooking ephemera and leftovers, swap supplies received but not needed, excess Gelli prints, dollar items that don't thrill you anymore (but it was a dollar so you had to buy it, right?), Instax photos or other scenic shots, postcards, flyers or brochures that you were saving for a special occasion, maps or atlases, and the list goes on and on.

We would swap small, medium or large flat rate boxes - I will have to think of how we can include our international friends.

Sign up the first week of December and send out after the new year when we all go back to work?
