61  My attempt at a felt katamari ball in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by GougeAway on: February 18, 2007 04:01:10 PM
Hi all!  Here are some pictures of the felt Katamari Damacy ball I just completed.  I made it for my boyfriend for Valentines Day.  It was much more difficult and time consuming than I had imagined it would be.  Needless to say, I'm glad it's done, and pleased with the results.

The tutorial/inspiration is accredited to this poster, check it out:

62  Cyrus the Cyclops Bunny in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by GougeAway on: January 09, 2007 09:32:37 PM
My first felt stuffie!  After being inspired by seeing all other posters' loverly felt softies, I decided it was time to make my own!

I present, Cyrus, the Cyclops Bunny!





Half of the credit goes to Nina for her wonderful stuffed monster tutorial - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5843.0 - thank you!!

The other half goes to KidRobot's Dunny series.

Any tips for improvement?  Next time, for the true dunny effect, I think I'd make the legs shorter, and the whole thing a little chunkier.

Thanks for looking!

OK, on to my amazing package from shewilldieyoung.

Samantha totally spoiled me with a WIST-y surprise.

Here are all the goodies:



She included some delectable cupcake notecards; an awesome CD that has some bands I love, as well as some I've never heard of, which really is the best type of mixed CD (I'm listening to it right now, and thumbs up to Samantha, who has every right to organize the Chick Rock mixed CD swap, which I'm also hoping to participate in); a lovely handmade card of a girl with balloons, and finally, an amazing birds nest necklace.

Gaze in awe if you will, ladies, at the gorgeous Nest Necklace:



Thank you so VERY VERY much for the gifts, I adore all of them!

I'd also like to add that shewilldieyoung. also sent a scarf and a beautiful bracelet for me to send to my friend Missy who's going through chemo right now.  I had written a post about how my friend was going to loose her hair, and asked for her friends to send scarfs, and Samantha went out of her way to send something to Missy, too!  I'm sending the scarfs from her and a couple other girls tomorrow.  I think that warrants a big THANKS!

(Sorry I'm so long winded!)

Wow!!!  I am absolutely spoiled, spoiled rotten would argue my boyfriend!  

I received two wonderful birthday surprises today, one from veganxwater and the other from shewilldieyoung.

Veganxwater sent me these awesome handmade ATCs, in a handmade envelope, to boot (I never know if I'm using this expression correctly, so bear with me, or bare with me??)



The top is the envelope that I LOVE, made of a city map.  The bottom left is a "T" ATC, with a picture of a cup of tea.  To the right is a Mad-Hatter inspired ATC.

Thank you bunches Veganxwater!  These are my first ATCs, and I can't wait to build my collection.

Again, sorry for the poor photo quality, only a cell-cam for me!

I am so glad you like your birthday gift, k8kre8s!  I wrapped it up  because I know just how fun it is to rip paper off of something for your birthday, right?!?

Well, I am super excited because I received my package from sonjaboo, and it is absolutely amazing, more than I could have ever expected.

(Sorry about the photo quality, I only have my camera phone!)

She sent me a bundle of beautiful paper for my altered book:


She also sent me these fabulous baubles and other wonderful oddities for my altered book:


And finally, a plethora of candy that reminds me of being a little girl, cavities and all:


Thank you so very much for everything, Erika!  This was my first package I've received through a swap, and it put me in a good mood thats sure to last, at least until school starts!

Thanks!

66  Matchbook Notes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by GougeAway on: July 27, 2006 07:51:42 PM
I put these together with some card stock and computer paper, then transfered an image onto the front.

The one on the left has a picture of a candy heart reading "Fuck off," and the other is an image of brass knuckles!



I got the idea from these two craftsters:

um.. this might sound stupid, but what does cellulose transfer mean?

Cellulose transfer is actually a very cool process that involves transferring photocopied images into other pieces of paper.  It works well with layered paper because it allows you to place the image in the exact place you want it.  It also works well if you have a good print image (like from Craphound) that you can't print off of your computer for projects.  

I also used the same process on this purse with another Craphound image:



It worked well for making a light transfer of the image, which I went over with a black Sharpie.  (You don't need to go over the image when it is on paper, because it shows up clearly.)

You need a photocopied, mirror image picture.  Usually something all black is best.  Then use coat the back of it with lacquer thinner, using a Q-Tip.  Then you place it over the paper of fabric you want to transfer it onto.  Finally, you use the bottom of a spoon to press the image onto the paper by sliding the spoon firmly over it.  

It's a great process!  Let me know if you try it out!

68  Cellulose Transfer card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by GougeAway on: June 28, 2006 01:31:44 AM
I made this card for one of my best friends who just moved away.  It's a cellulose transfer of a Craphound image.  It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but I did it quite last minute.

Sorry about the pic. quality!





Opinions are greatly appreciated!!!
