This is exactly the type of information I needed! Thanks so much! Now to see what I can accomplish...
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Finishing the Quilt? Confused on: September 08, 2016 09:13:25 AM
So, I'm definitely a newbie at this. I can sew, but for some reason quilting confuses me up and down.

I have my "top" quilted piece all sewn together, and I have the fabric I want for the back, and I have a roll of batting for inside. But how am I supposed to put it together and keep it from moving around? All I have is a regular sized basic sewing machine. Do I have to take it somewhere for them to use a giant quilt machine to put it together? Help!

That should work for most all of the pages. I'll try it out. : )

Thanks so much!

Okay, I did some searching, and I didn't find anything, so here I go.

I'm making my first REAL scrapbook. I have a bunch of pages put together so far and haven't really worried about putting it into an actual book. But now I'm almost done with it. The problem I am having is that I have a lot of interactive things on some of my scrapbook pages. I.e. a letter is glued to the page, so you can unfold the letter to read it, there are little "books" that you can open the pages of to reveal quotes from the book. Things like that.

It's a small scrapbook; the pages are only 6x6. I have page protectors for all of the pages, but... that's the problem. The page protectors protect the page, but don't allow whoever is looking through it to unfold things. I don't want to have to take the page out every time I want to unfold and read a letter. But at the same time, I want to be ABLE to read the letter.

I suppose I could leave some of the pages without protectors, but then how would I get the page to stay in the book? The page is 6x6 and the book itself is a little larger than that for the posts.

Am I making sense? Any suggestions?

I decided not to chance it. Instead I scrapped it for parts--took it completely apart to use the parts in other projects, then went out and bought a regular scrapbook instead.

I hadn't even thought of an acrylic sealer! Thanks so much!

I'm definitely going to test this and see if it works out...
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Photo Album help? on: August 23, 2012 07:07:55 PM
I was given a photo album at my recent baby shower. I don't like it much, and wanted to give it a do-over, and kind of scrapbook it in a way. The inside pages are those card-board type with sticky stuff and a clear film over them. You know, you pull up the film, stick your pictures to the pages, and then place the film back over them.

So here's my question(s): Can I use those pages to sort of make a cheapy scrapbook with? Will the stickiness hold up over time or should I glue the pictures and elements to the page? What about the clear film cover? If someone tries to pull it up years later, will it damage the pictures or whatever is beneath it? It may end up being a cheapy scrapbook, but I want it to last.

Thanks in advance.

If you sew them together you could put a cover on it using hook and loop so you can throw it in the wash.

Put a cover using hook and loop? What's hook and loop?

Or what about one of those shopping cart seat covers for when your baby is big enough to sit in one?

I would jump at this one, but I've already been given three or four of these and don't need one! But thanks for the suggestion.

I would suggest Staz On stamp pads, as they are permanent and would allow you to glaze over once they are fully dry.
