551  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Preferred Adhesive? on: November 15, 2005 09:31:04 PM
For photos and paper: 3-L Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner - Permanent http://store.scrapbook.com/jv-1645.html
For vellum: 3-L Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner - Vellum Tape http://store.scrapbook.com/jv-1643.html
For thick paper objects and heavier stuff (non-metal): Glue-Dots Memory Book http://store.scrapbook.com/gluedots.html
To raise items off the page: Pop-dots with foam in the middle between the adhesive sides (no photo)
I don't use much metal stuff on my pages, but when I do I borrow my friend's Making Memories Metal Adhesive.
All adhesives I use are acid-free, of course!
As I said in another post, I used to use glue sticks but that was too messy.  I ended up with lots of fingerprints and lines from the glue on the photos.

Well, to glue photos and other paper stuff, I use an adhesive runner: I use E-Z Runner's Scrapbook Adhesives runner.  I have one for vellum (a purple container) and one for paper (a red container).  You can buy these in many brands, these are just the brands I have found to work the best.  This link shows the permanent paper adhesive runner: http://store.scrapbook.com/jv-1645.html
I used to use glue sticks which were messy and so I tended to leave fingerprints on photos.  I've also tried the photo corner thing, but that didn't really work...the photos slipped out of the corners.
As long as the adhesive you use is acid free, you can use it on your photos.
For heavier stuff, I use glue dots.  You just place whatever you are gluing on the glue dot (while the dot is still on the glossy paper it comes on) then lift the item off.  The glue dot will attach to your item and pull off the glossy paper.  Then just stick the item to the page.  Here's a link to show you the Glue Dots: http://store.scrapbook.com/gluedots.html You can buy these in other brands as well and other styles like pop up dots.
Hope this helps.

Your pages are great!  I love the papers you used.  They are sooooo pretty!

As for the mini:  I was also thinking (before I read the other post) that it would make a great birthday gift for a close friend.  You could just use a few pages to put pictures on, then journal on the rest.  Some journaling ideas would be describing the photos, listing favorite things, talking about stuff you've done together but don't have photos for, etc.  Think outside the box for journaling!  Good Luck!

All of your layouts are fabulous!  I really enjoyed seeing them.  I don't think I could choose a favorite.  Your pages gave me lots of ideas to use in my own scrapbooks.  Thanks for sharing!  Grin

Try Hancock Fabrics.  The website is www.hancockfabrics. com.  Click on the fabrics button at the top of the page, the click "Craft/Utility/Specialty Fabric" on the left side of the page.
Hope this helps!

I saw from your bio that you're from Canada so I don't know how much my suggestion will help, but I know that our Hobby Lobby and our Hancock Fabrics stores used to carry peach felt.  Like the last post said, polar fleece would be another good option.  You could also just opt for a standard poly-cotton blend cloth such as broadcloth.  Another idea would be to use Muslin fabric which comes in an off-white/peachy type color.  Muslin is also great because it's really REALLY cheap!  Look for "unbleached" muslin.  Another, albeit a more expensive option, would be to use suede that comes in an off-white color.  I would stay away from silky/satiny/thick fabrics if you are a beginning sewer (I don't know if you plan to sew or hot glue the dolls).  So anyway.  I hope these suggestions are somewhat helpful!
557  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Plain Doll Clothing Patterns Wanted on: August 25, 2005 07:06:15 PM
Hi.  I've just recently gotten into sewing doll clothes.  I've been sewing human sized clothing for years now!  Anyway, I'm looking for patterns of Plain clothing for Barbie doll sized dolls, 18" American Girl sized dolls, and Cabbage Patch dolls.  If you have any Plain patterns that you will be willing to let me have a copy of, please drop me a line.  By "Plain" I mean clothing worn by Conservative Anabaptists such as the Amish or Old-Order Mennonites.  I'm looking for dress and apron patterns as well as the headcovering patterns.  Thank you!  Smiley
