1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Candy Land Cards on: July 13, 2005 09:37:06 AM
here's some cards i made for a swap recently.  I got the idea from quartney and her awesome stationary in the Dollar Store Craft Challenge.  <Thanks!  Wink>

I actually got these cards from Target, they were $1.49 i believe.  i also got a set of Tonka Truck Cards that were very cute, but i don't have a picture of those.  then i just got some tissue paper from the dollar store and took my solid colored card stock and went crazy.  i found the easiest way to glue them on was with my plain old craft bond glue stick.  although i did have some issues with the tissue tearing...hence the off center cards.  Wink  anyway, here's a pic...enjoy!

3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 3 ENTRIES / (Alleycat.rm's) Dream Craft Room on: July 01, 2005 06:48:26 PM
okay, i really hope this is okay...i'm posting this for my sister, alleycat.rm.  she had to work tonight and we don't have internet access, so i said i'd go over to our dad's and post it for her.  she really wanted to get this posted so i'm sorry if it's not okay! 

all right...when i told her about this challenge, the first thing she said (and what i thought of also) was "oooh...a craft store!!  NO!!  a craft ROOM!!"  so that's what she did.  She took a bunch of scraps and stuff we had laying around the apartment and this is what she came up with:

of course, it had to be done in pink.  she's especially proud of the quilt on the bed (which is made out of a mini cereal box)....now she wants to make a real quilt with those fabrics!  Roll Eyes  and notice the "Craftster Rocks" poster. <shameless promotion>  Wink

she also wanted to put some things in there that she had learned on Craftster, so she made a clock out of a bottle cap and the little purple dress was one she had made a long time ago for a card swap.

and of course the knitting on the bed and the little painted hatboxes.

the only thing it doesn't have that she wanted was a little kitten sitting on the bed.  because craftsterers are notorious for having cute little pets!! Cheesy

Okay, i think that's all she wanted me to say. enjoy!  Smiley

**Edited:  oh! i forgot to say that it is made out of a shoe box on it's side and sitting in the lid, then spraypainted white.  and the disco super ball was my idea!  Wink

Details of swap:
Okay, here we go.  Get a copy of your favorite children's book (can be a picture book, chapter book, anything you read and cherished as a child).  I would suggest scouting out your local Half Price Bookstores, Library sales, garage sales to find a cheaper copy if you do not already have an extra.  If you are feeling extra ambitious/ornery, send your partner 2 books!  (this is NOT a requirement though, so you can not feel bad if you only get craftiness back for one book!!)  Send it to your partner by June 13th.  Once you receive your book to craft for, you will have until July 16th to make crafty goodies based on that book.  Send on the craftiness, and keep the book for your own collection!  I'm not setting a size limit or amount limit on the package, however i would like at least an 8 1/2x 11" padded envelope filled.  (at the very least!!)  Any kind of craft is good, feel free to go wild and crazy!  Grin  If you are sending within the USA, delivery Confirmation is a REQUIREMENT ON BOTH PACKAGES and of course i will be sending a mass pm reminder one week before the FINAL sendout date that i do REQUIRE a response to.  If you can not meet any of these deadlines/requirements, DON'T SIGN UP!!  please...this is all about the fun of crafting for someone and receiving great goodies in return.  Flakers bring everyone down and make it hard to enjoy swapping.  Remember, ask me if you have ANY ANY ANY questions!!!  Wink  Same for if this totally does not make sense!!  Wink

Details of swap:
All right....yet another CD Swap!! Woohoo!  Cheesy  Okay, this one is themed to slow & low music (obviousley):  music that you listen to when that jerk dumps you, or when you get an F on that paper you tried soooo hard on, or when your parents/boss are being cruel and heartless, or when you just feel like having a good cry....anyway you get the idea.  You will make ONE CD **see option 2 below** design a label for the CD (markers are fine or printed labels; i don't recommend putting stickers directly on the CD though), make some kind of case, with liner notes (explaining why you chose the songs if you want, but you don't have to) and mail it off!  Now when you mail it, i'm going to require everyone to wrap it in either some paper or tissue or fabric or whatever to give it a little extra padding.  we've had a lot of CD's getting broken in the mail in the other swaps and i don't want that to happen here.  also, that should give you that extra 1/4" or whatever it is that you need to get a delivery confirmation number (which is required if sending in the USA!!!)
**and now option 2...if you are like me and just cannot contain yourself to one CD or if you would like to receive an extra back, i am going to give you the option of signing up for two partners.  HOWEVER...if i do not have enough people to match up for 2, then i will have to remove that option!! so be forewarned! (ooh...a big word)
and of course pm me if you have any any any questions!!

make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES!!!

Details of swap:
This is just like the "Week in the life Photo Swappy" (thanks Princess Dukki   Smiley) except you will have a color theme.  Each person will pick 2 colors that they want pictures taken of and i will pair everyone up randomly (so no trying to pick which color you want to take pics of!) and you will take pictures using only that color (or the majority), then put it a photo album/journal/blank book/file folder/any kind of container, and send it to your partners.  I would like everyone do a minimum of 24 pictures for each album.  I did a little less, because trust me, it's hard finding 36 orange things to take pics of!! Wink The colors to choose from are: Yellow, Orange, Pink, Red, Green, Blue, Purple (i am leaving out black, brown, & white because i think they would be too hard)  i understand that this kind of swap can get a little expensive, especially with the cost of 2 different sets of film, so if that is the only thing stopping you from joining, please let me know!  i can pair you so that you send 1 color (doubles are a little cheaper) to 2 different people or even just one set (although you will only get 1 album back).  So please!  I will try to work with you!  If you are sending within the USA, Delivery Confirmation is REQUIRED!!  Other than that, go crazy!  And of course.......COMMUNICATE!!  Remember, I'm not a mind reader (usually) so if you are having problems/issues I need to know!!

***Edited to add in amount of pics***

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another photo swappy....but different!! on: April 18, 2005 01:03:56 PM
k, for all of you who missed the first photo swappy, which was so much fun, i thought i'd start another.  but i want to do a "color theme".  so you get a partner and their favorite color and take pictures focusing only on that color.  for example, blue: the sky, cars, water, your grandma's hair...etc.  Cheesy  or red:  fire engines, lobsters, lipstick, your sunburned back....
and then of course, put it in a pretty album and send it off!  i'd say a minimum of 24 pics and limit the colors to the basic rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink(cause my sis said that is a real color!)  i think brown, black, and white might be too hard, but if ya'll are up to it, that's fine with me!  so let me know what you think!!   Smiley

This is a good old fashioned random swap!!  Anything goes; please keep in mind of course anything that might be considered offensive to some.  (for example...Nazi War Memorabilia or something  Roll Eyes)  I will only be asking a few questions in the survey, it is up to you to research your partner and find out their likes and dislikes.  If you plan on sending some supplies, please also include AT LEAST 3 HOMEMADE/HANDMADE ITEMS AS WELL!!  I would also like everyone to fill AT LEAST an 8x14 padded envelope.  Do not feel that you need to do more than this if you don' want to, but at least that!  Those who are shipping within the US will be REQUIRED to send Delivery Confirmation.  And everyone MUST COMMUNICATE with myself and/or their partner!!  I will be sending out a reminder email a week before the mail-by date that I will require a response to just to make sure everyone is on the same page!  This is supposed to be fun for everyone, so enjoy, get creative, and get craftin'!   Cheesy

And Please PLEASE post or PM me if you have any questions!  NOTHING is too stupid to ask if you don't understand!
