1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Jewellery Storage Solution on: December 12, 2012 09:18:40 AM
Thank you!  Grin

These are not my most used tools as they live in a draw but it was getting too full for me to find things easily so this is what I came up with  Smiley
It is useful to know that I can always find a pair of scissors!

Hi all!

I have had this idea ever since seeing a similar topic on here ages ago...do you think I can find that now though?!

I got a lovely New York canvas for my birthday and instantly thought that it would be perfect as a hid away for my necklaces as its about 60cm tall and 150cm long but super light as its a thin canvas at only 1.8cm!

So with a rectangle of MDF, a couple of hinges, some small nails and a lick of paint it was ready! The edges are painted to match the wall while the black makes the necklaces stand out. As you can see in that picture you wouldn't even know anythign was there unless you knew to look for it!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

~on a side note~

I am also making another one behind another canvas to store away some of my crafting supplies! I am still deciding exactly what will be hanging on the rest of this though so I can't paint it yet.

Am thinking of including my knitting needles but need to make sure I can get them in and out easily first (which is why the items have been rearranged in the picture above which is the most recent picture) so am thinking of mounting this to open side ways with much larger hinges and a magnetic closure to hold some of the weight on the far side

I will post this once it is finished Smiley
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hand made Pirate comic book ~Pic HEAVY~ on: December 11, 2012 09:59:40 AM
Hi all!

I made this comic for a true comic lover. It was an interesting weekend project as I have never even read a comic before so I had to do a fair amount of research first.
It isn't a normal comic size as it's A5 (far easier to make!) but the map is bigger as I assumed he would want to bag and board it to store safely in the comic box  Roll Eyes

My boyfriend has playmobil pirates on the top of his monitor in work. Recently he went away for a while - leaving them plenty of time to get up to some mischief.......

I made him a map to follow through the office to find the comic (the one on the cover of the Comic) and presented it to him on his return Smiley

Think he enjoyed the surprise  Cheesy

Thanks for having a look Grin I would love to hear your comments
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt Christmas Decorations on: December 11, 2012 09:09:34 AM
Hello all!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything and I thought it was about time I did something about it  Grin

It's that time of year again! I end up being away from home a lot around Christmas as it's an easy time to escape work...this means that I need some flight luggage friendly decorations of course! They pack easily and can't get damaged in transit.

Here are some close ups...as you can see they are not perfect Wink

I used an old work shirt for backing material, drew up a Bauble template and got crafting! Two hours later and I have over 60 Baubles and used the left over felt to make some easy 'parcels' too!

Thanks for having a look!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: 50 Projects 2012--Join here and post your lists ! on: January 08, 2012 03:27:14 PM
I was inspired by everyone's last efforts last year so I would like to join in this year too!

I love michelleandbean's idea of having a completed items list as my attention span is so short! (also work means I don't have much crafting time so I will just have to take the opportunities when I can so who knows what I will end up doing!) so thought I would have a wish list and a completed list  Grin

Things I would like to do-
Fleece arm warmers
String Doll

Thanks Punkyflossy! You really helped so I thought I would show you how far I have got! (as you can see I havent glued the last verse in place as I got a little excited about sharing it.)

I was thinking about what you said about grabbing attention, and thought that a good way to make something as small as a few words on a giant bit of paper to stand out was to make them a different colour to the background, something which contrasted and was out of the ordinary... So I went for white text on a black background!

I thought a few small photos around would look nice and not over powering and mean more to us two then anyone else while not being boring to look at (The small one in the top left is a mineral down a microscope...)

Please let me know what you think!!

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / scrapbooking dilemma on: August 20, 2010 01:21:18 AM
Hi all,

I have a scrapbooking dilemma that I'm hoping you can help me with to actually decide!

I have been told that I have 10days to use my printer credits in Uni or I wont be able to at all and its money not worth loosing... so I have 100credits, enough for 4colour pages (25credits each) or 25 black and white (4 credits each) or a mix...

I thought of creating a scrapbook for my boyfriend which will double up as a scrapbook at our wedding (I have a long time till that don't worry!  Grin) So I'm looking for a fun/not to romantic scrapbook that will be fun for others to look at and not just us.

I have written a fun poem for the first page about how we met and why we were friends for so long before getiing together etc for a 12x12 scrapbook so theres no restriction on size of photos etc that will fit (I have a large collection due to being a camera fanatic...)

What I need to decide is how to lay it out!? Should I print it off as a whole or in blocks?? I have no idea what to do as its a first page and hopefully one people will remember?

   Thanks in advance!

I had a similar problem to you when I decided to make my brother a scrapbook/photo book of our tour around America.

As we are both photographers I decided to make a 12x12 photobook with each page/ 2pages on a theme (so the major areas/cities we visited covered 2pages) and then make a 11.5x12 scrapbook sheet from the goodies we collected in each of those areas and slot it in between the pages (i cut down the side of the page holding it into the book so it didn't stick out the side

It worked out great as we were able to take out the scrapbook pages when showing elderly relatives who loved the photobook without the busy scrapbook pages. And we have to amazing memory's that are held in fine by the nature of a bound book (think of how a bookmark works) with ALL the pictures printed on high quality photo paper!

Good luck
