11  care bear shadow boxy thing in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Rio_Supreme on: August 18, 2008 05:17:40 PM
Its kindof a shadow box...i think. One thing kind of led to another and now im not sure what it is  Tongue

Anyway, one of my freinds nicknames is clairebear, so for her birthday i drew her this...

I didnt want to send it to her all nude and alone so i put it in this box

and used my dremel to shape the clouds

but im not posting it in the finished section because im a bit stuck on how to finish it, the lid looks all bare and i dont know what to do with it.

Any ideas would be great, as im kinda running out of time as her birthday was kinda yesterday... Embarrassed

Hi everyone!

First of all, sorry for being late but i was so tired last night i fell asleep before i could post it! I had an idea for the connections page but since i only joined on wednesday i didnt really have the time to do it properly,  :'(so I did the title page for my journal instead. Maybe ill do two pages nxt week...

heres the little dictionary im using (i dont know what language that is)

and heres my titley page! Its got the Visual in the eyes and the Journal in the eyelashes.

As for the pages already up...
Phyzzychick-love that page, and the discworld refuernce was a nice touch, dont worry bout not havin a turtle, everyone knows that once you get past the elephants its turtles alll the way down! Wink

Gemcraft- great envelope page ( i like pages with secrets in them)

Danni- those geckos are too cute and nice resourceful use of berries!! Cheesy

Ok, sorry its a bit long but i thought my first post should be done right!

13  cassette tape notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rio_Supreme on: April 06, 2008 05:13:08 AM
My brain is like a sieve. Seriously.

I can remember most of the words to "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts", but when someone tells me to pick up some milk for them it gets filtered out of my brain like the boring mundane crap it is.

So I made myself a little notebook out of an old cassette tape case (I've been dying to make on of those cassette tape purses so I been buyin up tapes). I snapped off the sticky out bits with pliers, but now they look messy. I'll probabley paint the inside when I get a minute.

The construction of the tape case won't let the paper open up like actual pages so it had to be a list format.

First thing on my list is Tidy my room! Damn!

14  reconned contact box in Completed Projects by Rio_Supreme on: April 06, 2008 04:52:20 AM
Its my new years resolution to be more organised this year, so I immediately went out and bought one of those boxes to keep all your contact information in. Unfortunatley they only come in boring old black and blue so I knew something had to be done.

Soo I covered the top with wrapping paper my sister got from her Lush gift set. I was gonna do the whole thing but I ran out of paper.  Cry

The inside looks quite plain so as soon as I can get a hold of more of that paper I might do more to it. Until then it will remind me to fill this box with happy people's addresses!

15  Coffee recipe book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Rio_Supreme on: March 15, 2008 03:29:44 PM
Weell, my friend is due to start on her new diet, so I thought her birthday pressie could be something to encourage her. So I made her a recipe book! Cheesy

Ta Daa! front cover, sporting a stylish purple gingham that I've been hoarding for the perfect cause!

First page, she's a coffee addict so I soaked the pages in coffee, now they look interesting and they smell nice! Although it was a pain in the arse to soak 40 odd pages with only two small sinks... Angry

mmm... bannoffe chocolate crepes *droool* Tongue

I stuck in some recipes I found to get her started.

I couldnt resist putting my mark on it... Roll Eyes

The pages are a bit messily cut, but intill I get a proper guillotene there's nothing I could do about that. Anyway, her birthdays next week so I hope it dries in time!!

16  just a quick little notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rio_Supreme on: March 02, 2008 02:34:24 AM
Well its my gran's b'day this week, I always ask if there's anything she had in mind but she always says the same thing: 'I'm sure I'll love whatever it is you get me.' Hmmph. She's no help. Huh

So I made her this notebook! She has a Yorkie so when I found this picture of one in last year's calender I knew I had to use it for her!

quick shot of the end paper ( I couldnn't find a pretty paper that I liked so I just doodlefied one)

By the way, does anyone know how I change the photo so that it comes up portrait instead of landscape? I can't find it one the FAQs.

17  Book under construction! I need help! in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by Rio_Supreme on: March 01, 2008 11:58:27 AM
Hi all,
Well for my freinds b'day I'm making her a recipe book. She's just starting a new diet so I thought a blank book she could put her favourite recipes in would be good.

This isn't how it will look, I just cobbled together the peices so you guys could see.

I like how it looks so far but I wanted to have the drawing of her at the bottom saying something witty. Unfortunately witty comebacks aren't my strongpoint! Huh Any suggestions? Something along the lines of 'no way am eating that.' or 'I know I can do better than that...'.

You get the idea. Any suggestions welcome!

Never mind!! I just had an idea of what to do so I don't have to be witty! I'll just slap some more art on there! Wink

18  satin photo holder in Mother's Day by Rio_Supreme on: March 01, 2008 11:45:06 AM
Technically I didn't craft this, I just remade it.

I had one of those clippy photo holders that looked like it could use a makeover, so I just wrapped it in satin and lace and put a little photo of me and my mum on the front.
I hope she likes it!

19  snazzy new bookmark! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Rio_Supreme on: February 27, 2008 02:55:30 PM
my pretty bookmark!

I'll use anything for a bookmark, flyers, reciepts, international treaties etc. so I thought if i made myself a nice one it'd encourage me to actually use it.

Books here I come...

20  Re: cute as a button! with a photo in it. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rio_Supreme on: February 27, 2008 11:48:28 AM
woohoo! The dog button broach lives!!

I cut off a little bit of chain and used it to attach the button to the broach. Then I folded a foil sweet wrapper to use to back the letters so they would fit, stuck the letters and foil on and voila! a little dog broach to show off my adorable puppy! Cheesy

Of course now I have to make one for my other dog so she doesn't feel left out. Damn, a buttoners work is never done...
