281  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Little paper theaters on: January 21, 2009 06:18:22 AM
Alpha Stamps is now carrying little diorama boxes, and plenty of cool collage sheets to play with. I took a couple of the smaller boxes and made two little theaters. Each box was about 3 1/4" by 4 1/4" to start.

I call this one "The Lecherous King, Act I", because that's what it looks like this play would be about! I added some Dresden trim and a sea oat I picked up off the beach in Pensacola, Florida. (Note: the oat was actually lying on the beach, I did NOT damage a plant! That's a no-no.)

It's hard to take a really good picture of the interior because of the glass.  Tongue It's also a bit difficult to see the depth of these in a photo. This one has about 5 different layers so it's really dimensional.

Here's another one: "Circus Theater". It embraces my love for the clown.  Cheesy

I also used a bit of Dresden trim on that one. I love how that little bit of trim really adds so much to a project.  Smiley

285  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / FOC Second Chance Wishlist on: December 30, 2008 07:55:22 AM
All packages for this swap are due to be sent out by April 25th! If you wish to redeem negative feedback but did not have a duplicate account with that negative, you should either send to your original partner or check the swap angel board for angel opportunities.

If you have already chosen someone in the swap to send to, please be aware that the due date is approaching. Swappers who had duplicate accounts with negative feedbacks MUST send by April 25th to amend this feedback.


As some of you may know, we are currently running an amnesty program for people who have created duplicate accounts and have old negative feedback to clear up. We are requiring each participant to be a swap angel for each negative they have on a past account, plus one extra time. The good news is that we have several people who wish to redeem their feedback. Currently, though, there are not nearly enough angel positions for them to sign up for in order to make things right.

For this reason, we have decided to hold a special type of swap, open only to Friends Of Craftster and to people who are participating in the amnesty program or are redeeming negative feedback. Here's how it will work:

Only FOCs may post wishlists. Because the FOCs will not be sending a package, you may join even if you are currently involved in 5 swaps.

If you are an FOC, you may pm me with your signup information and then post a wishlist. Please include a few large items you might wish for, as well as several medium and small items. Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better chance you have of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be removed and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items. When you receive, you will contact me so I can help fix your swapper's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be given for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

FOCs: because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper. Each FOC may post a wishlist just once. Once you are chosen, your wishlist will be removed.

Best of luck to all the swappers redeeming feedback, and to all you FOCs hoping for a little treat in the mail.  Smiley

286  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Garden fairy ornament on: December 21, 2008 09:01:17 AM
My wonderful MIL gave me a huge stack of old family photos to use in my art. I had to pay her back somehow, so I made this little garden fairy ornament to tuck in her stocking at Christmas this year. She's a master gardener and does landscape design, so I know she'll love it. I painted some of Tim Holtz's new Distress Crackle Paint on some watercolor paper, then made a little collage using the photo. It's sandwiched between glass in a 2" x 2" Memory Frame. Tie a little ribbon, and voila! A quick and easy gift.  Smiley

Please pm me if you are interested in becoming an angel. Thanks!  Smiley

spooky.kitty will be sending to mieljolie. Thank you.  Smiley

We have two new swap moderators!

Phizzychick and superhooker will be joining the swap mod team to help us run the the numerous swaps that are constantly going on.

Avid swappers will recognize both of these fantastic new mods. Each of them has been very active in the swapping community, both as swappers and as organizers. Please join me in welcoming them to the swap mod team.

They are both here to help, but as always, if you have a swap issue, please post in the Help Desk so the first available swap mod can help you as quickly as possible.  Smiley
