3291  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Offer What You Have (Crafts/Supplies) Swap - July on: July 18, 2007 02:28:14 PM
calluna: instead of claiming 4 journals could I get 2 journals and some scrapbooking paper instead?

Hell, I'll send you 4 journals and the scrapbooking paper together; I just want to get rid of stuff!
3292  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Offer What You Have (Crafts/Supplies) Swap - July on: July 17, 2007 04:27:39 PM
Hello folks,

I have been approved for this swap and this is my first claim.

From mrs.benjimadden I want to claim a homemade soap. (I'm an animal-lover too, so I will give it to my beauty-product-seeking mom, who is not.)

Here's what I have to offer:

1. Recycled blank journals I make from salvaged office paper and magazines images - 4 journals per claim. I have made more of these than I know what to do with, and have lots of designs. I don't have a good picture of them right now, but they're a Japanese glued format I don't see very often.  

2. Enough paper ephemera to make your head spin! I can stuff a manila envelope with surprises or you can tell me the kind of items or eras you're looking for.

3. About 15 sheets of 12x12" scrapbooking paper.

4. Two gaudy safety-pin bracelets. The smaller one is with purple sequins and clear beads, the larger one is with irridescent reddish plastic beads and brown glass beads.

5. Four needlework pattern booklets/pamphlets from the early 1980s. One claim for the 4 of them. The last one has lots of designs and pages, but the other 3 contain only the patterns shown on the covers:

6. An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.) Lips sealed

7. Ink stick for Chinese/Japanese calligraphy (thank you Craftsters for identifying this for me).

All right! Problem solved. Thanks.
3294  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / unidentified crafting object - can you tell me what this thing is? on: July 16, 2007 09:39:52 PM
I ended up with a bag full of random objects and I'm puzzled as to what, exactly, this is. It's a rectangular black cube, about 2" tall. I have reason to believe it's an arts/crafts supply, but for what art/craft?

I want to offer it with some other de-stashings in a swap, but I can't give it until I can say what it is I'm giving, of course.

So there's a spray out there that apparently turns regular paper into acid-free paper. I haven't bought any yet and wanted to hear some consumer feedback before I invest in more chemicals. Has anyone used it, and with what results? Does it wrinkle/warp the paper? Is it messy and/or super-toxic?  Thanks.

I have not made one, but now that you mention it I think it's a great idea and I want to make one as soon as I get away from this computer today.

The glue is PVA glue (polyvinyl acetate, I think), and no other glue that I know of will do for this purpose. It is available at art supply stores.

My mom has a computer program called Broderbund Calendar Creator, and it makes the process really easy. I think there are several desktop publishing programs that have calendar templates, and even Microsoft Word might have something helpful. You could always make a table in Word with the size and lettering you want and save it as a template.

The only reason you might consider making your calendar the same size as others is if you have the plastic piece from a previous year's calendar that you could re-use to make your calendar stand up.

If I understand the problem correctly, an easy alternative would be to put a sticky-tab of sorts on each divider page, rather than cutting out the section where the letter usually goes, and staggering them from top to bottom of each divider page as you work through the alphabet. Like the section dividers in a thick binder (except probably much, much smaller). For a basic model, try square alphabet stickers, stuck back-to-back with the bottom of each sticky side adhering to either side of the divider page.

Amazing work! I now feel encouraged in my initial efforts to collect a digital image bank.

Here are my current Nintendo projects in the works...

Link will be on the front of a blank book, once I finish his mouth and feet and find the right color thread to finish the cross. I cut a window out of mat-board, and will sandwich the fabric between that and another piece of matboard for the front cover.

I don't know what I'm going to do with the Duck Hunt picture; hopefully inspiration will come while I fill in all the empty sky space (it's going to take a while) and iron out the big round circle.

Here's where I got the dog: http://www.smashboards.com/fzero/emblems/dog_l.jpg

This site is definitely worth a look for the countless other grids of Nintendo characters ("emblems"); might make your project easier: http://www.smashboards.com/fzero/emblems.php

Not easier to decide on WHICH project, however.[/size]

Thanks for the kind words...I forgot to mention that I learned how to make this book structure from Alisa Golden's "Creating Handmade Books." This same structure is on the back-cover of her book, incidentally. I wanted to give credit where credit is due, since any effort I would make to create a tutorial would just be plagarizing, which would not be cool.
