11  Guess Who Revamped - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Version! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by LittleGirl on: February 09, 2010 11:24:48 AM
My husband loves, loves, loves the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, so for Christmas I decided to center a crafty gift around that. He usually gets his crafty Christmas present in January... or in some cases never since I'm busy crafting for everyone else. This year, for the first time ever he got it - on December 25th.  Grin

I took images found on line (It's for personal use ONLY Wink ) and re sized them using a print shop program I have. I added the character names with the same program. I also created a question mark pattern for the back of the cards and printed it all out on photo paper. I glued the two sheets together and then covered each side in two coats of clear coat protector. In retrospect I could have probably printed them on sticker paper to make it easier... but meh Wink. I didn't care for the red and blue bases of the card holders and the shows theme happens to be black and yellow so I spray painted the bases black. The card holders themselves were already yellow - it was SO meant to be!

And....... I am done rambling....

Please let me know what you think!

12  Netbook Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LittleGirl on: February 09, 2010 10:57:47 AM
So I had planned on making my BFFF a netbook bag for Christmas and when I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328289.0 I knew she would absolutely adore a button skull for decoration.

Kiwiblue must have amazing patience because his skull turned out way better. I'll admit I got tired of hand sewing buttons and got kind of sloppy at the end. She loved it though and that's what matters most.  Cheesy

I used a layer of thick quilters batting I had laying around between the inner and outer layer for protection.

The inside material is super fuzzy and soft - I love how it sticks out on the sides... it was completely unintentional.  Wink

I used snap buttons on the underside to keep the netbook safely in place. The white buttons are purely for decoration... and you know... I didn't think I hand sewed enough buttons for the day.  Cheesy

Omnomnom... silly netbook... you don't have teeth!

13  Personalized South Park Character Shirts! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by LittleGirl on: February 09, 2010 10:38:38 AM
I stumbled across this great website a while back where you can create your own personalized South Park characters (http://www.sp-studio.de/help.htm). I happen to have two boys in my life who both love South Park so I decided to create shirts for them for Christmas gifts. I am very pleased with how they came out since this was my first time using iron on transfers! I can see this turning into my new obsession....

14  Alice in Wonderland wall hangings from decrepit book and old cd cases! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LittleGirl on: December 07, 2009 12:23:28 PM
I saved a very, very old Alice in Wonderland book from the garbage a while back and decided to use it as the center of my BFFF's birthday present this year. We both try and reuse everything so it seemed very fitting. I also have a TON of empty jewel CD cases laying around so I decided I would use them for my project as well. I used scrapbook papers for the backing and tied ribbons to the top so she could hang them easily. I love them and am planning on  making myself a Dr. Seuss themed one! Comments/Criticism  please!  Grin

15  Paint sample elephant mosaic in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by LittleGirl on: December 18, 2008 12:47:41 PM
I've seen great mosaics made from paint samples before and figured my BFF should get my first work of art (all based on how well it turned out  Wink) for Christmas. She LOVES elephants and has everything elephant so I figured this is something very unique that no one can buy her.

I must confess even for a picture this size (11x14) it is painstakingly tedious. It takes FOREVER! I thought about making more, but I might wait a bit until the memory of this one fades a little. I just used an acid free glue stick and stuck the pieces to cardstock. I thought about trying and filling the cracks in the elephant with glitter... sort of like grout, but I think I like it the way it is. Feedback please!!! I need to decide if I should make more! Lol.

Excuse the kitty head she just couldn't resist exploring the new thing I put on the couch.

16  My version of the "I love you" book PICS GALORE in Valentine's Day by LittleGirl on: December 09, 2008 02:58:53 AM
So I found these two posts -



and fell IN LOVE with the idea. I actually made this for my husband on our two year wedding 8 years together anniversary, but I figured this was the best place to post mushy love stuff.

I had to take the pictures myself, but I think it came out pretty well.  Smiley

17  Treasure Chest... YARRGGGHH! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LittleGirl on: August 09, 2008 12:22:45 PM
My husband's uncle made him this wooden box to store his amp head in when he was in a band a few years back. It was painted black with the band logo on the top of it. Since the band has broken up the box has been sitting in my living room with a blanket over it. I don't have any before pictures, but its' not hard to use your imagination and picture a big black box - lol. After obtaining permission from my husband to distroy the box as he once loved and knew it I worked on turning it into a treasure chest/bench seat. It's really handy to sit on while trying to tie your shoes or whatever and inside there is a lot of storage space. It goes well with my beach themed living room too. Cheesy

18  My parents went on vacation... and this is what happened to their living room!!! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by LittleGirl on: August 09, 2008 02:13:31 AM
While my parents went on vacation for a week me, my husband and brother decided to paint and slightly redecorate my parents living room. My mother was SHOCKED and soooooo happy with the results. I love my parents, but their house suffered from NO COLOR syndrome. I helped put an end to that.  Grin Here are the before and after photos... tell me what you think!!
