Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles, and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Polaroid Print Gift Tags on: December 26, 2018 09:49:49 AM
Each year, I try to create some sort of fun holiday gift wrap theme.  Our kiddos always really look forward to it, so I simply cannot stop now. Cheesy  The last few years, I've used plain old brown kraft paper and I've just changed up the tags, ribbon, etc.  One year was metallic doodles with their names hidden in the swirls and creations.  Another year was red ribbons and accents galore.



This last year, we've had lots of adventures since moving to the desert, and we've easily taken thousands of photographs.  So I decided I wanted to feature those! Smiley

I found this free Polaroid template PNG from Decorator's Notebook and knew it would be perfect.  I opened it in Photoshop and dragged all of my images into the file as new layers.  Once I resized and aligned them to my liking, I gave each the same action treatment (a hazy black & white action).  Then I resized the entire Polaroid file and sent all of the photos to the printer on plain old white card stock.  Once printed, I chopped 'em out with my paper guillotine and they were good to go.







They looked so lovely under the tree!





The kids have claimed the photos for their bedroom wall, which is pretty cool.  baby.sweets4ever got an actual Polaroid camera for Christmas, so I suspect their walls will be plastered with many more photos very soon!

I will keep this post updated as issues are reported to us, and as I hear status updates from the tech team.

Please know I can only update as information is available, though.  If it's not updated with additional details, it's because an update isn't available to me yet.

It's time for our annual Gingerbread Contest!! Kiss  Each year, we've had so much fun seeing your gingerbread creations.  If this is your first year on Craftster, be sure to check out our previous years!

It's time to get out those mixing bowls and get crafting!  Your challenge this month is to make and decorate a gingerbread house.  Any type of house is permitted (cottage, castle, etc.) as long as it has walls and a roof of gingerbread.  Your entry must be made of edible parts, but it's not limited to sweets only.  The only non-edible parts allowed are a base, lighting and/or electrical components.

No gingerbread house kits for this challenge.  No size restraints; miniature to life-size houses are tasty and welcome for this challenge.

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Dec 3 - Jan 8 ) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Jan 1 - Jan 8 2019. No sooner.  No later.  On Jan 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Jan 8 - Jan 15 2019.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our February newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!
