301  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Santa Christmas ornament on: November 01, 2008 08:00:11 AM
I love the square pendants and glass kits that are available now. It's so easy to make beautiful projects without having to weld! For this ornament, I put the image in upside down so I could use the hanging ring to attach charms and beads. I then attached two brads with loops on them so I could tie a ribbon at the top. Done!

302  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Christmas gift tags on: October 01, 2008 02:32:36 PM
I got some great Santa images from Alpha Stamps and decided to get a jump on Christmas. I decided to give my packages a little sprucing up this year, so instead of writing the recipient's name in Sharpie on the bottom of the box (as usual), I'm going to make everyone pretty gift tags.

Here are my first three. I used plain old tags from an office supply store for the base, which makes these go pretty quickly; no measuring or tricky cutting! Now I need to go make about 50 more.  Cheesy

Details of swap: Here's a quick and fun swap for Halloween lovers. Decorate an Altoid tin inside and out to suit your partner's Halloween taste. Then fill it with tiny tricks or treats (or BOTH!) and send it to your partner. No extras here; all that is allowed is the decorated tin itself, and whatever tiny goodies you can fit inside. Be creative!

Please be aware that I reserve the right to refuse anyone based on a sketchy swap history (several late sends, poor communication, etc.) Good communication is essential. If you are planning on joining, you

MUST post in this thread so you don't miss out on any of the fun.

305  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Trick or treat Halloween altoid tin NOW IN SIGNUP STAGE! on: September 04, 2008 08:08:23 AM
I love vintage Halloween and I love altoid tins, so I thought: why not combine the two? How about a fun little swap where you decorate a Halloween altoid tin for your partner, and fill it with either tricks or treats (or better yet, BOTH!)

Anyone interested?
306  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Organizers and Swappers: old "in progress" feedback cleanup! on: September 03, 2008 02:13:14 PM
We're doing a little spring cleaning on the database, and we have set for ourselves the lofty goal of updating hundreds of old "in progress" feedbacks. If you are an organizer and know that you have a incomplete swap that's at least three months old, please go back and update feedback for all participants.

If you are a swapper with an old swap that still reads in progress, consider opening a help desk ticket about that swap. Include a link to the gallery where your partner received and we will update you!

Meanwhile, we will work steadily away to resolve all these old incomplete swaps. Don't be surprised or alarmed if you are contacted by one of your friendly neighborhood swap mods about this. We just like things tidy.  Grin
307  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Little Alice in Wonderland book on: August 11, 2008 06:43:07 AM
Alpha Stamps just came out with a line of Alice in Wonderland stamps and collage sheets, so I thought I'd make a little book using some of them.


The charms on the ribbons were made by stamping with StayzOn ink onto shrinky dinks. Thanks to Crafty_dame for this great idea!

Page one. Alice is stamped on acetate...

...so that she can go visit the White Rabbit!

Page two. Alice goes to a mad tea party. The background pages are from a copy of the actual book, reduced to size. I like having a bit of the story show behind the images.

And, the last page: the Queen of Hearts.

So, there you have it. I loved having another excuse to use my Bind It All.  Cheesy

309  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Clown box on: June 22, 2008 10:36:01 AM
I love a scary clown. I don't know why, but I do have a fondness for them.

I found the perfect little jewelry cabinet for a dollar at the thrift store, and thought it would be fun to make a little shrine, or "clown box". It's about 4" by 7 1/2", so it's a great size.

I removed the drawers, took out the wood partition in the middle, and painted the box with a few layers of paint. I collaged some fun papers on it, and then sanded parts of it down to show some of the paint layers. The clown images are from a collage sheet from Alpha Stamps. The ones in the back wall are set up a little with some sticky foam squares. The clown in the front is glued down just at his foot, and then suspended with gold threads. I know lots of people will think it's creepy, but I'm pretty happy with it.  Cheesy

Here's the clown box in its former life:

Sorry, kitties, you just had to go!
