51  Scrapbook for my nephew (14 Pages!) in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Luna1375 on: January 21, 2008 03:46:16 PM
Hey! After I made the "At the Farm" book with pics of my younger nephew, my older one wanted his own book. So I've been busy busy busy! It's an 8" x 8" book, and I used papers and embellishments from two kits, mainly Deja Views Sharon Ann Little Ones Collection with some matching stickers, and a few papers from Hot Off the Press's "Boys To Men" paper pack. The pics are my favorites of what I could find that wasn't too badly damaged from moving so many times, in roughly chronological order. All comments welcome!

52  Trip to the Farm (img heavy) in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Luna1375 on: January 06, 2008 06:30:27 PM
Edit: Made the 2 page layouts clickable to view full size.

I went to visit my nephew and his grandparents on their farm, and then scrapping ensued.  A lot of the papers and letters are from a paper pack called "Boys to Men" by Hot Off the Press.

This first page is of him "helping" to build their new pool house. I made the caution tape and "men at work" sign in Illustrator and printed them, the rest is paper and stickers.


This one is him riding his bike.  Everyone asks "where did you get that bike embellishment?" and I will tell you: Michaels.


For this one I made the words with the train tracks in Illustrator.


This is a two page layout showing a painting he did, and a new one he's working on.  The splatter painted background paper I made in Photoshop.  The colors didn't come out exactly right in my picture of the layout and I tried to fix them best I could but it's still a little washed out.


Another two page of him playing in a pile of dirt.  I'm pretty proud of the muddy boot prints.  I found an image I liked on the web, resized and duplicated it, printed it on adhesive vellum, cut them out, stuck them down, then blotted them with a wet napkin to make the splotches.


This one is of his grandma and her horses.  The quote says "Horses know when you're happy, know when you're comfortable, know when you're confident, and always know when you have carrots."


This is him playing at the very top of the hay bales in the barn.  I made the letters in Photoshop by filling them with a section of the hay from the photo, but with the colors intensified.


For this one I made the leaves in Photoshop (with a leaf brush I downloaded, but I colored them myself)


And on this one I only made the heart with the journaling and the little hearts, everything else was bought. It's hard to tell but the little ones have shiny puffy paw stickers on them.


Thanks for looking!  All comments welcome.

53  Jeans to skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Luna1375 on: December 26, 2007 05:49:14 PM
So, I had these jeans.  They were too big.  I thought I could take them in, but really the rise was too long and that's too complicated for me to fix.  So, I was inspired by Sabertooth Pixie and her utilikilt here and made this skirt. My pleats are different from hers, and I swear they look better in real life than in pictures.  Oh, and I know the original leg seams of the jeans are off kilter in my skirt, but I don't care I think I'll wear it anyway!

Back:


Now, main question: I'm 32.  Am I too old to wear this?

55  Bunch of Holiday Cards 1 new added!(img heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Luna1375 on: December 08, 2007 06:14:42 PM
Finally finished with the cards for my coworkers!  (yes, I do love them all) I've only included pics of the insides if there was something special, otherwise they're just blank, and I wrote a Happy/Merry blah blah and signed them.


I'm holding it closed because it won't stay shut.



I used a cut up vinyl gift bag from target for the window thingy.



This one was inspired by (ripped off from) sugasuga



Outside of card . . .

 . . . inside of card.









This one has glitter on the dark blue part, it just doesn't show well in the photo.  Eh, this one isn't one of my favorites.



With this one, I made the argyle pattern with Adobe Illustrator and printed it with the text, then glued on the ribbon and snowflake.  And wouldn't you know it, the next day I ended up buying the Christmas stack from DCWV and it had argyle paper!  So, I could have saved myself the trouble of making my own.  Oh well.





Those swirls are kind of a happy accident.  I was going to stencil them on, dark blue paint on the light blue background, but I'm not a good stenciler so it was all messed up.  Then I put the stencil face down on another piece of card stock, with the paint still on it but starting to dry, and when I peeled it up, ta-da!  I like it better that way.





The above is the one I forgot to do and did late last night when I was kinda sleepy.  Otherwise it might have been better.  But the recipients all enjoyed them!

If you made it this far, congratulations, and thank you so much for looking!  Any comments are welcome, positive or negative, as always.  Merry Happy Everything!

56  Page in my friend's memory in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Luna1375 on: November 25, 2007 08:25:59 AM
This is a page from my book for DragonCon, a sci-fi/fantasy convention I'm on staff for.  One of my fellow staffers, a good friend, passed away recently.  This is the page in his memory.

Edited to add: I forgot about how you're supposed to tell a bit about how you made it.

In the photo, I adjusted the colors in Photoshop and added the aged looking border.  The paper comes from DCWV's "Rock Star" line.  The purple swirly stuff in the lower right corner I used a stencil I made out of computer paper, just folding and cutting and then using acrylic paint and a glitter pen to outline it.  I didn't notice it was covering up the "M" in the "Music" word so I had to sort of scrape off some paint there and outline the letters so they would still show.


If you click it, you'll get to my flickr where there are more pics from con.

This is my first try at making a reconstructed dress.  I used two black t-shirts and a band of scrap fabric.

58  Closet curtain in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Luna1375 on: July 29, 2007 07:53:17 PM
I needed to hide the ugly furniture and stuff in my closet, and I hated the sliding doors so I took them down and hung this tapestry thing I got at Target.  It's not quite as crafty as sewing something myself, or dyeing or printing my own fabric, but I did stain the wood pole and glue on the finials (they're actually large drawer pulls, cheaper than real drapery finials) and screw the whole thing to the wall Oh, I added the white piece of wood behind the pole too, to hide the track from the doors.  And, the pole really is straight, it's just the ceiling that's warped, I kid you not. These apartments are ancient.

59  Placemat window treatment in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Luna1375 on: July 28, 2007 01:33:46 PM
Howdy.  I just finished making this window treatment out of $1 vinyl placemats from Target, and paper clips.  I did have to trim them a little to get the spacing right.  The blinds were already there, I just wanted something a bit, you know, more. I know they're kind of bowing out a bit at the bottom, but I can live with that.

60  Mini book about my magical friend in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Luna1375 on: July 03, 2007 07:57:50 PM
I'm still working on this scrapbook looking back at my high school experience, and I wanted to include a story about a friend from school, even though the story happened after high school.  But I didn't want to just write it, I wanted something special, so I made a mini book that goes in a pocket on a page.  I didn't take a pic of the pocket because it's just made from a leftover page protector, it's not that interesting.
