1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Preparing and Organizing. on: August 01, 2011 06:19:29 PM
Hi Smiley

So first off, I'm heading to visit my sister in a few weeks and since her and my brother-in-law are going to be at work during the day, I want to bring my scrapbooking stuff to keep me occupied. That being said, how should I prepare for this? I'm guessing it would be something like getting ready for a crop but haven't been to one of those either. So, I'm asking, how you prepare yourself?

Also, how do you organize your supplies otherwise? Like, at the house. Right now, mines just in some plastic containers but those pretty much just have things stuffed in them because I can't get them to work otherwise. Whats your system?


Minor side note, I've been searching for a musice note stamp no bigger than inch and a half, cant find one anywhere. Ideas?



Im really interested in reading what you have to say.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Unwanted fabric? on: February 17, 2011 06:34:38 PM
I've been sewing since a very young age, therefore accumilating quite a fabric hoard that could rival someone's three times my age. Anyways, I'm getting ready to move out of my parents' house and I've found ton of fabric that, after a long and hard thought process, I don't think I will use. I don't have time to sell it and I don't exactly want to hand it over to the trash guy.

Anyone know of any place I can donate it? the fabric ranges from quilting to apparel...

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Slice? on: February 13, 2011 08:24:10 PM
Does anyone own a Slice? I'm looking into getting one because I don't scrap enough to warrent purchasing a Cricut. I'd like a basic opinion on it? I'm sure I'll only be cutting paper and maybe lightweight cardstock.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2009 Prom Dress Goodness on: November 22, 2009 06:42:40 PM
So I was creeping around I just realized I have yet to post my prom dress from last year!

Made completely myself, no pattern or anything. It was my senior project as well so I had to do extinsive research, keep track of expenses and how I made it rather than just dive in like I do any other time.

The bodice is a full corset made from black twill with ribbon edging. The skirt is made from some silky material I dont remember exactly what it was and I deleted my presentation. The skirt it three layers, each gathered so the next layer is larger (the bottom layer ungathered was long enough to go from the top of our stair case the bottom with fabric to spare Shocked)



My Sister and I


Me and My Idiot Date {We broke up later that night}


Thanks for looking!

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Porcelian Doll costume. Picci Pudgi! on: March 31, 2008 08:55:49 AM
So for Halloween LAST YEAR, I know, I wanted to make a costume that had some EGL influence. I decided to be a porcelian doll. My grandmother funded my costume by taking me to Savors to by this HIDDIOUS black dress and a tablecloth that had lace trim that I would need for the dress. She also bought me the ribbon and shoes... I love my grandma

The dress: {It had an ELASTIC WAIST}


The tableclothe: {Dont be fooled, its actually green.}


And the finishing Product: Sorry for so many big pictures






These are from Halloween night, you can kinda see my hair{which was way longer} and makeup. I covered my face with white face powder {also from Grandma} and used eyeliner to make a crack down the center of my head. Oh no, I'm broken...





Thank you much!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / CPT Update, Projects since Last Summer. on: March 31, 2008 08:39:28 AM
Alright so I finally got around to doing another photoshoot, first one since last summer. Here we go.

First I have a Used tee - Took it in and added sleeves. The sleeves are a stripy cotton with a really soft and fuzzy fleece at the end.






Balboa Island Tee - Started out as an oversized tourist tee from Balboa Island, CA turned into a tube Top with stripy and 'x' hand stitched trim. The logo is for 'Blackbeard's Tattoo Shop' {nonexistant, I believe.}



This one also shows the back of the skirt I'm going to show you next.



The skirt in that one I made from a pair of lounge pants. I cut off the legs right below the writing on the butt and sewed the legs together and make a circle skirt. The butt says 'Angel Patrol'



I thought I needed a pair of skinny jeans so I took some old jeans my sister gave me and attacked them. Not only are they skinny jeans now but they have customs holes and ridges and I sewed some ribbon in them.






Thankyou for looking and make sure to check out my other posts and my website please.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / CPT Update, New Projects since Last summer. on: March 31, 2008 08:27:52 AM
Most of all my projects are reconstructed so look in there too!

First up, my 'Less than 60 Minute Dress' lol Completely surprised my photographer/best friend and his mom when I told them I made it in less that an hour that day, right before the shoot. Its made from a stretchy white leopard print fabric they had given to me when they moved. Simple tube unhemmed with ribbon for halter straps.

Front:




Back:





Then I have a hoodie I made without a pattern nor looking at a hoodie I already have. I just kinda flew by the seat of my pants on this one and is the first hoodie I've made from scratch. Its made from leopard print fleece, red broadcloth and black rib knit.

Thank you so much!!!!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Winter Formal Dress {Kinda late} on: February 15, 2008 10:09:23 AM
Okay so back in December my boyfriend asked me to go to Winter Formal at his school. I had a month to make my dress. It has changed so much from the original sketch {Due to the fact the the fabric kept fraying so I had some major changes to make so it would'nt fall about on me} I'm really happy with how it came out though!

On to the pictures:

Front:


Back:


Boob Shot to show off the bust:


The straps are macrame, and the shrug thing I'm wearing I wore over it because I'm kinda modest.... It was made from a strip of fabric that my mom had... I just put it on, pinched, pinned and sewed where I wanted the sleeves to be and cut off the excess.

And one last parting shot!:
