Details of Swap

This will be a swap where each person will make their partner a set of cards with envelopes using a OSW template.  Pinterest is a great resource for finding OSW templates.  Participants can create their own OSW template or use one made by someone else.  
Choose a template that will create at least 8 cards for your partner.  Send a copy of the template to your partner so they can enjoy your work and possibly recreate your style in the future.  Your patterned paper should be 12 inches x 12 inches or equivilent (such as 4 6 x 6 sheets).

Each participant will be partnered up with one other person.  You may sign up for more than one partner (up to 3 partners).  

Prior to crafting take a picture of your paper for a before photo.  Please post the before photo in the gallery after your partner has posted.

As this is a paper swap as per Craftster swapping rules, papercraft swaps are exempt from the DC confirmation requirements.  Senders are required to resend their packages if they are not received for any reason.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Sheet Wonder Card Swap on: April 09, 2018 07:40:57 PM
I would like to organize a card swap where everyone uses one sheet of 12 x 12 inch paper and a one sheet wonder template.  It's a fun way to make 10 to 12 cards with little to no paper waste.  Plus, cards with variations on a theme are always fun.  Themes could be personalized to your receiver's preferences.

For example, I have coffee related paper that I could use to make birthday, anniversary or just because cards.

I think it would be a lot of fun to see how everyone uses the idea of one sheet wonder and how different the results will be. 

Who is interested? 

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / The Raven - Halloween Card on: October 29, 2015 05:32:42 PM

Who says cards can't be given on Halloween?

I designed this card for a swap a few months back.  I used back embossing powder for the raven stamp to give the card a main point of interest and different texture.  The top feather has been popped up using some dimensional tape.  If you look closely you can see that the background paper has a raven perched on the candelabra.   

Main Supplies used:

Stamps - CTMH Quoth the raven and Stampin' Up Four Feathers
Cardstock - Grey (the shade is a bit darker than the photo depicts) and cream
The paper was something I've had in my stash for years. 
Black embossing powder
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Best Ever Gluten Free Flour Recipe on: May 29, 2015 06:13:00 PM

In our house, "this tastes gluten free" is not a compliment.  After years of experimenting with different recipes, we've come up with this all purpose flour blend.  As the person in the house who can still eat gluten, this recipe has my seal of approval for tasting like regular flour.  Simply substitute it into your favourite recipes.  Occasionally I'll add an extra tablespoon or two of moisture to get the perfect consistency in some baking recipes.  Usually it's a straight substitute for regular flour. 

Equal parts:

Corn starch
Tapioca flour/starch
White rice flour
Sorghum flour
Quinoa flour

If you would like to make an adaptation of this blend, the first 4 ingredients are the staples of the recipe. 

Hope you enjoy!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Aviation Charts Turned Into A2 Envelopes and Gift Card Holders on: May 25, 2015 06:29:16 PM
Aviation charts are made with fantastic quality paper.  The problem is once your map expires, you can no longer use it for navigation.  Instead of simply recycling the paper, a lot of pilots will reuse it for things like wrapping paper or stuffing packages.  Here, I've turned a few charts to fun looking envelopes and a few gift card holders.

Vancouver/Victoria, Iceland and Azores

A close up of all those lines and symbols:

I made the gift card holders out of a different type of chart.  The paper is of the same thick quality as the others.


I like to have fun and mark these as "Not Intended for Navigational Purposes."  As if someone would try to use a square of an envelope to help get where they are going. 

It would be amusing if you were sending a card to make the envelope from where you or they are.

Thanks for looking.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Drab to Fab Chair Reupholster on: May 08, 2015 07:53:11 PM

My mom saved this chair prior to it being thrown out.  What it lacked in looks it made up for in structure.  The springs and wood frame of this chair are in amazing condition.  They just don't make chairs like this anymore.  I loved the curved back.


After many hours of sanding I was able to reveal the beautiful raw wood underneath all that paint. Then I applied several pounds of staples and finishing nails and voila!  My beautiful chair.  My mom was trying to convince me to let her take it back.

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Hello Sunshine Card - 3 Ways on: April 26, 2015 11:11:49 AM
I loved making this little card so I decided to make a couple variations on the theme.  My favourite part is the gold embossing on the pearlized blue.  It looks like denim to me.


9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / 2 Double Layouts for Baby Shower Gift on: April 26, 2015 11:04:16 AM
My best friend just gave birth to the sweetest baby girl.  She wants to start scrapbooking and after looking at her supplies, I knew I could contribute to her new album and keep the same kind of theme.  For part of her gift, I made her 2 double layouts where she just needs to place a 4x6 photo and then it is finished.  There's also room for more embellishing if she so desires.

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 4+4+4+4 Birthday Card Swap on: June 30, 2014 02:16:32 PM
I'd like to organize a birthday card swap where each person makes 4 adult female, 4 adult male, 4 female child and 4 male child birthday cards.  I think this would be a fun way to build up the card stash before the school year begins.  Gender neutral cards would totally be acceptable. 

Any interest?
