1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help! Ideas Needed for 50th B'day book! on: April 12, 2008 09:59:22 AM
OK, my trusty Craftster pals....I need your collective brains and crafty powers to help me! 

I bought a little address book at the Dollar Store to modify and use at my sister's 50th birthday party as a guest / memory book. 

It has a hard cover and a multiple ring binder (like a traditional 3 ring binder) so I can remove the pages.
The inside....(with the pages that came with it)

 
The outside....(soon to be recovered, but it's still pretty cute so I had to show it!)

I plan on recovering the book with paper that matches the theme of the party (Tiki Hut/Luau - lame, I know), but I'm at loss as to what to include on the new pages to make for the book! 

Here's what I would like to do: Have a place for each guest to sign their names and then a place for them to write something (hopefully nice) about my sister.  But what do I call that section? Favorite memory of the birthday girl? Something funny?

Help! We're trying to keep this party on the light side and forego the traditional black balloons over the hill route.  She's had a pretty difficult time lately and we just want her to have fun!

Any ideas or suggestions will be soooooooo greatly appreciated!!! Thanks bunches!!!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My First Wee Clay Food! Yay! on: July 07, 2007 07:09:57 PM
OK.  This is only my 2nd post, so be gentle! I finally got off the booty and crafted a little today.  And I do mean "a little"...

After many, many months of being inspired by all of you crafty geniuses, I decided to make some itsy bitsy food!  I know this has been done a gazillion times before and a gazillion times better, but they are still my first babies, so I love them!  Here we go...

First, my teeny eclair and chocolate icing w/ cream filling donut! (My favorites in the real size!) Yippee!


Next, the microscopic vanilla and chocolate iced donut duo - complete with bitsy sprinkles!


And lastly, everything in a pile with the obilgatory quarter to show the bitsy-ness of it all!


I can't stand it - they are soooo cute!  Again, it's my first try so they are destined to get better, right?

Thanks again for all the inspriation!

Craftster's where it's at, baby! Yeah!
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES / Queen of Everything Showoff..... on: July 04, 2007 02:52:00 PM
Long time lurker - first time poster! Yay! Please be kind....

I made this about a year ago for a co-worker.  I was always calling her the Queen.  She whined that she couldn't be the Queen because she had no crown.  Sad  That day, I stayed at work during lunch and whipped this up for her.

It's made from random office supplies - paper, scissors, tape, glue, staples, glitter, stickers, etc.  Oh - and the most important ingredient - love!  It says Queen of the Universe on the front. It's adjustable in the back and the designs go all the way around.  There are little "jewels" on each tip of the crown.  This was the best picture I had of the finished product, but you get the idea.  Nothing super fancy, but a crown none the less!

She loved it and wore it all day every day for an entire week. 

I'm more impressed each time I visit craftster by everyone's handiwork!  Great job, everyone!
