1  Re: Celebrating World Cardmaking Day in my Blog in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kajikit on: October 09, 2009 09:11:08 AM
I was too busy making cards the rest of the weekend to post them... my grand total was 17 cards, covering 15 different challenge topics. I summed everything up in my blog and posted a complete list of challenges for anyone who's interested, but here is a photo of my finished card collection.

Here's my next challenge - the envelope of Goodness. Everyone who signed up was mailed an envelope of card-making bits and pieces to use... I made three cards with mine and I still have a bunch left to play with later.
Here's the envelope -

And here are the three cards I made with it so far. Two landscape cards and one general one.

3  Celebrating World Cardmaking Day in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kajikit on: October 02, 2009 10:05:39 AM
Did you know that this weekend is World Cardmaking Day? I didn't...but I'm informed that it is, and one of my cardmaking groups is celebrating all weekend long with special Challenges (and rewards). I'm blogging the cards as I get them made and my first entry is done already...

The first challenge I attempted was to make an entirely red-on-red card... no little bits and pieces of other colours sneaking in! It's a lot harder than it sounds because a lot of patterned paper is actually more than one colour, but I made two. The first is a Happy New Year card playing off the theme of the Chinese New Year, and the second is a romantic 'I love you' card with a butterfly. Here they are...

Full details are in my blog (of course) and I'll be blogging and posting all the other cards I make over the weekend in this thread.

PS. I just realised I forgot to link it! Here's the blog entry with the information... http://kajikit.blogspot.com/2009/10/ncd-challenge-1-make-entirely-red-card.html

4  I made a notebook! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kajikit on: September 11, 2009 04:50:47 PM
I had to make somebody a little thankyou gift and I was inspired by all the journals posted here... I cut up some nice thick stationery to be the inside pages and used patterned cardstock for the cover, then I clipped it all together with paperclips, poked holes in the spine, and stitched it up with embroidery thread. I know NOTHING about bookbinding so I just sewed and then tied the loose ends together when I was done. I think it came out cute...

Here's the cover.

And here's a photo to show the inside. I left a narrow rim of cardstock around the edges of the paper to protect it, and the paper's a pretty dove-grey.

5  Paper-punched inchies in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kajikit on: August 31, 2009 12:04:16 PM
I made some inchies for a scrapbooking swap... I haven't done them before, and I decided to use my smallest cutest paper punches and some glitter cardstock. The swap rules said that the inchies had to be layered at least once so I used the glitter stuff for the base, and cut plain white cardstock into 7/8th strips to punch. Then I trimmed them to size by hand, inked them up and glued them down. I finished them off with some doodling around the edges.

Here's the whole lot, and a closeup of one set so you can see the borders I drew.

6  My colourful zentangle birthday jigsaw in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kajikit on: August 28, 2009 08:17:53 AM
I made this for my brother's birthday after I saw the jigsaw letter that somebody posted here, and admired the beautiful zentangles people have drawn. I used to do doodles that were kind of similar, so I decided to make him a zentangle.

I used one of those blank puzzles from Joanns as a base and I painted it with a watercolour rainbow (I love rainbows!') And after it was dried I grabbed my pens and started to draw.

It took two days to draw because my hand kept cramping up and I had to take breaks, but it was fun! I used an assortment of markers - I started with Bic Markits but they're much too fat-tipped, so I just coloured with them, and did the details with some Staedtler lumocolours and then I did the even finer details with some fine-tipped pens.

And here it is... I haven't doodled like that in YEARS but it was really fun and I can see myself doing some more. I might make some Zentangle cards...

7  Re: Altered Puzzle-along in Craftalongs by Kajikit on: August 28, 2009 05:06:51 AM
Your puzzles look great! I've altered individual puzzle pieces for scrapbooking swaps but I've never done a whole puzzle... I bought a 24-piece kiddy puzzle from the Dollar Tree to alter. It would be cool to do a whole puzzle - I'll have to go buy another one because I've used half the pieces for swapping!

Here's some I did a few months ago for a 'pets' swap, if the link works...

And these were 'Spring' themed.

And here are some I did a few years ago... sorry they're not very good pics!
