321  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: our fake life on: August 28, 2008 05:25:28 PM
oh so cool,  go to a harbor and take a picture next to a cruise ship, or a travel office and get a close up next to a poster just so that it looks like its the background and not actually a poster, Put in magazine photos of people doing those things from far away and making up a story about what happened to you...

Good luck and many adventures in your fake life!
322  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: scrapbook as a research gift? on: August 28, 2008 05:23:19 PM
How thoughtful of you, here are some suggestions.

  • Have a page with a longish thank you poem/sentiment
  • have a picture of yourself/class/professor your doing research for
  • quote the first paragraph or major conclusion paragraph along with the grade you got either in the class or just on the research project, maybe a pic of your completed project
  • If you were studying animals within a certain location, include a map

As someone who got the chance to mentor someone from a distance I got much joy from her just letting me know how the project went.  I hope that helped. Best of luck in this.
323  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Scrapbook? on: August 28, 2008 05:16:36 PM
cool idea you could:

have a page for each major character with pics from show, factoids about charactor/actor, fandom poems and art...

A two page layout of your favorite episode (or favorite episode in each season)

A page about the lore of slayer/watchers/vampires

Pages on anything that really struck your interest, weapons of the slayer, spotting a vampire, watchers handbook, the excuses buffy uses when she does something slayer-like in the company of those who have no clue, the fashion of buffy, the bronze bands...

you could think like you are an extra on the show and these people are your classmates, what would you have to say about them, the places they hang out...

Put in your favorite fanfic/poetry/art

Have fun!
324  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: creative ways to make your own scrapbook albums? on: August 28, 2008 05:11:00 PM
I use a three ring binder and sheet protectors for my regular albums. works great for 8.5x11 paper. I can deco the folder all I want. Makes it easy for the everyday chronological type of scrapping. And way more economical than a scrapbook bought as a scrapbook. 

325  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / book + feathers + sequins + tassel + beads = oh my on: August 28, 2008 02:32:34 PM
This is my very first book purse.  Made it to wear to my cousin's wedding next month.

The book is the Sugar Queen.  I chose some of the elements based on the book. 

The red lining is from a sweater. In the book the heroine has a magical red sweater.

The story is placed in the deep south which for some reason always put me in the mind of Victorian fans and feathers, hence the sides of the purse. Grin

I added the tassel closure to the existing gold sequin closure once I realized I wasn't getting anything in the purse AND closing it at the same time  Tongue

I wish I had made one sooner. This was so incredibly easy and looks so over the top.  Finally me modeling it.

326  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first poppet! (and a whole lot of clothes): pic obese on: August 28, 2008 12:04:54 PM
Introducing my first poppet. (First jointed doll ever): Autumn

Before she got her hair put on.

her most autumny outfit with head band and shoes

another autumn-esque dress

and her fuzzy pink jacket


fancy dress with bloomers and ballet shoes

and a sundress made from a fancy blouse sleeve

This was so fun. She's made from the elenor pattern (thanks Craftewoman!) with felted cashmere.  Her clothes are scraps I had lying around after making my summer wardrobe from reconstructed thrift store finds and clearing my closet of all that is not so fabulous.  I can hardly stop making clothes for her. 

327  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: pocket journal on: August 27, 2008 06:29:05 AM
    hmm, cool idea.  I've got three possible ways to do this.
    simply use a folder with sheet protectors. You can have your page that shows for your pictures and notes and behind that put in your patterns/tutes/ect.

    Second way:
    If you want to bind it like the other journals here using coptic stitch I would think you could add pages that are about half the height of the regular pages   but are twice as long so they wrap around a page.
    so lay it out like this:
  • regular page 1
  • short wide page front end
  • regular page 2 (the one that goes inside the pocket
  • short wide page back end (now the short page is wrapped around the regular page
  • repeat for as many times as you want

That would give you half your pages as pockets, alternating which side they are one as they go.

Make a regular journal in the regular way with two differences:
1) make sure the paper is folded and one of the ends is sealed up (glue, sewing, ribbon...)
2) instead of binding it on the fold, bind it on the raw edges so the fold is facing out, then every page has a full size pocket

oooooh, love that. I'm thinking the plastic milk cartons would be great to use for this.
329  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cloth grocery bags you can cross stitch on on: August 14, 2008 07:13:10 AM
At the craft store they have a special cross stitch fabric that you iron on, cross stitch the fabric, then the cross stitich fabrics gets torn/washed out.  Then you have a bag of any fabric you want with your design on it. (providing you can get a needle through it)

hope that helps
330  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Blue charity quilt on: August 13, 2008 06:53:19 AM
I made my first quilt for charity the other day.  I used a typing paper piece technique using scrap bits of flannel I had leftover from making the cloth diapers I never actually use.

My daughter "helped" by trying to hold the quilt fabric as it went through the machine.  And of course she tested it for comfyness.

The quilt will be going to a hospital so maybe it can comfort a child who's not feeling well.
