1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / A deck of cards on: December 13, 2005 12:22:55 PM
I am giving this to my brother for Christmas. He's been bitten by the pokerbug so I thought he would enjoy a deck of cards with family and friends as King, Queen and Knights.

the deck of cards

an example of the dressed cards. I used our cat Tiger as the Joker because "Joker is wild"

a little box to keep the deck of cards in

The whole gift complete with deck of cards coaster and deck of cards box to keep it all in.

I did the lay out for the cards on my computor. Got my parents involved to get access to photoes of the victims to put into the dressed cards positions. When it was done I printed it out with the numbers on one side and the blue background on the other side. It went well without any mistakes which I am happy for since I only had two extra papers. The paper is a thick paper or thin card, used in Swedish schools to draw on. Then I put selfadhesive plastic on both sides of the paper before I cut the cards out. Now I am contemplating whether to round the corners or not.

I made a dealer button using the same blue as the back of the cards, one side says dealer and the other says Mattias as the cards. The coasters and box I made after looking at the featured projects thinking that would make the gift more complete. My other brother is giving him a pokertable so now he will be all set for a game of poker with his friends. (He already bought the chips himself.)

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Gingerbreadhouse-villages Many pictures on: December 04, 2005 02:48:01 PM
This is this years gingerbreadhouses. I've put some comments under each picture so you'll know what is happening. It is difficult to capture the little details though. The houses are about 4cm wide 5cm long and 4cm high. The little santas are between 0.5cm and about 1cm.

This picture shows all seven little "villages". There are two houses and an outhouse on a piece of bread.

Dancing around the tree

Overcrowded daycare center. Children are climbing on the walls and the staff is overworked. Note the hearts on the roofs. It is so the parents will think "Oh, what a lovely place to put my children while I'm at work."

In this scene we have a stroller with a baby, a man skiing and a "peeping Tom" looking at a kissing couple. Can you find them?

Santa is delivering all the presents. The children are looking up with interest. You may notice that they have hidden Santas reindeers. Is that naughty or nice?

A smoking santa by the corner of the house. Another santa is working hard carrying firewood.

Snowlanterns and at the top you can see part of a group out caroling.

Fun in the snow. The little snowman is so cute, too bad it was difficult to take detailed photos

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cards with snowmen made of buttons on: November 09, 2005 12:33:10 PM
I made these tonight for a Red Cross Christmas bazaar. We got a basket full of buttons and when I saw the glass buttons in different sizes I immedietaly thought of snowmen.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Forever Folding Card (finally a tutorial with pictures) on: October 24, 2005 10:09:22 AM

I wanted to introduce myself by sharing this folding card with you. I come from Sweden so the text on the card is in Swedish, I usually know how to spell Wink

Since this is a folding card it will not show so well in pictures. Just imagine that you keep opening the card from the middle to see the next picture.

I have been able to make a small video to show how it works:

This card lends it self to continous stories. This example is about the four seasons and the twelve months. As the year continues the card continues. It can be done with a beginning and an end as well. Good for children who wants to hear the same story again and again and again....

Blomman (Which means Flower in Swedish)
