1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / The "Half-scrapbook" Idea on: May 07, 2007 12:32:36 PM
If you have items (such as menus, travel itinerary, party favors, etc) that you don't want to try to fit into a conventional scrapbook, you could make a "half-scrapbook". A half-scrapbook starts with a file that can hold several folders. You can arrange and separate the folders and items however you want (such as by years, trips, destinations, occasions or events) Then make a little decorative page for each file (or decorate the front of the file itself) with a picture or a drawing. Then you could write the name of the file (the place you visited, the specific trip/occasion/event) and maybe a few important memories (like someone you met/went with, the hotel you stayed in, a restaurant you ate at, date/time, location of the event, etc) on the page. Then as you made more memories,  you could make more files, and if you ever wanted to make a scrapbook, you have all the materials at hand, complete with personalized pages for each memory.

Let me know if you try out this little idea! Have fun!

I bought a 3D sticker set of the Scrabble game, it included a board, and lots of letters. I also bought a 3D sticker set of the game LIFE and MONOPOLY. I bought mine at walmart. They were jolee's boutique brand stickers, that brand has a lot of very fun and unique scrapbook stickers and sticker sets.

You could do a half-scrapbook. You could make a file with several folders, arranged by years, trips or destinations. You could make a little decorative page for each file with a picture or a drawing.

Did this help?
If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to help! Scrapbooking and preserving memories are my favorite pastimes!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: A Beginner's Supplies.. on: May 07, 2007 11:39:05 AM
I keep a stock of various widths of hemp and lots of head pins and eye pins. That way, I can make earrings if I want to, or I can make necklaces. Those are the easiest things to make when you are starting out.
When I started making wire jewelry, I started with a make your own earring set that I bought at a Michael's craft store. The set had four different kinds of earrings and step by step instructions on how to make them. That really inspired me, and it was only 5 bucks. All I needed were some wire beading tools, which are also inexpensive. I just bought a nice bead tool kit and I am addicted to making earrings! I hope this helps!

That is a great start. If you want to get super serious about it, you should invest in a tool kit, I just bought an amazing kit from HSN.com. I started with tweezers and tool pliers myself. I get most of my beads from yard sales/flea markets too, and I buy old jewelry to take apart. You have the right idea for sure. Wire beaded jewelry is my new passion, so if you have any questions, let me know, I would love to help!

I love making beaded jewelry. Earrings are the most fun in my opinion. All you need are some basic tools (I just got an amazing set from hsn.com) and some wire supplies that can be found anywhere. Let me know if you are interested in making wire jewelry.

I just recently got into jewelry making. I started out with hemp. Hemp is a fun, and mostly inexpensive way to make jewelry. You could do a very simple necklace and put one of those pretty beads in the middle. Hemp patterns are pretty easy to find. Let me know if you want to know more about jewelry making or hemp jewelry
