11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Meat Stamp ATC on: November 16, 2006 07:34:06 PM
I made a meat stamp from the meat image on Kingdom of Loathing a couple weeks ago, and I just made an ATC with it:

12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Pricing Survey on: November 15, 2006 06:38:15 AM
I'm thinking about starting a business selling my handmade recycled paper. I'd like this data so that I can use it for a project in my college class and also so I know how I should price things if I sold my paper. If you could answer the 3 questions below honestly, I'd appreciate it:

1) Would you be interested in buying my handmade paper?
2) How much would you pay at most for a 4"x6" sheet?
3) How much would you pay at most for a 6"x6" sheet?

Please answer all 3 questions even if your answer to #1 is no. This information will be very useful to me.

13  UNITED STATES / Michigan / Crafty Jobs in MI on: September 14, 2006 12:47:48 PM
If you live in Michigan, you probably know that there's kind of a lack of jobs in the state. I just started college and need to get a job (my first job). I'm looking for some place crafty to work in southern Grand Rapids/Kentwood. Any suggestions?

This thread is also to post if you want/need a crafty job or if you work someplace crafty that is hiring!
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Homemade Graph Paper on: August 24, 2006 06:13:51 PM
I've made some homemade paper, and it would be really useful to make graph paper from some of it. Any suggestions on doing that without a ruler and pen? I was thinking about using a series of strings on some kind of frame and dipping it in food coloring or ink, but if anyone can think of an easier way that would be sweet.
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Handmade Paper on: August 17, 2006 02:49:43 PM
Hey there. I've been experimenting with making handmade paper using recycled junk mail and such. I don't have a blender so I mash the pulp by hand. I don't have a screen for the mould and deckle so I use meshy foam cupboard liner/placemat stuff to make it. The first batch sucked, but this is from the second batch. It's thin, sturdy, and has a unique texture from the foam mesh. I think it's kinda like cheap cardboard but my dad says it looks and feels like asbestos. Weird.

Let me know what you think. I plan to make some smaller pieces for ATCs and send some to penpals for scrapbooking.
16  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 14 ENTRIES / Tiny ATC Binder on: August 03, 2006 10:39:34 AM
I keep all of my ATCs in plastic trading card pages in a binder. For my tiny project, I decided to try something kinda ironic or weird or funny.

It's a set of 9 tiny ATCs in a tiny trading card page. Oddly enough, the plastic trading card page is actually a regular ATC size sleeve Tongue Hope you all enjoy it!
17  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATCs - Library Due Date Cards on: July 16, 2006 08:06:28 PM
I made this set of ATCs from some old library due date cards sent to me by cordeliasbs. (Hope you received them in the mail by now.)

I plan on making some more soon Smiley
18  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Old Dictionaries on: January 15, 2006 08:46:05 PM
Any suggestions on where to find old dictionaries? I want to use the pages for some paper crafts but don't know where to look, and I only have a few from a friend on another forum, not very many. Anyone know where to look?
19  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / It Wasn't Like That When I Sent It! (SIGNUP CLOSED, SEND ?? Whenever...) on: December 30, 2005 04:26:57 PM
Swap name: It Wasn't Like That When I Sent It! Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: DreamIsle
Sign-up date range: December 30, 2005 to January 7, 2006
Date to send item by: January 10, 2006

Limited to a certain number of people? 20 max please
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes, but preferably it causes problems with those who can't send internationally
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES (I think so anyway...)
Organizer meets the 5 Arby's beef and cheddar melts and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: SURE why not

Details of swap:
This is a 2 part swap! (You'll have to send twice, but nothing bulky requiring a lot of shipping)
1. First I recommend an envelope the size of half a sheet of paper, y'know, it's something like 8 x 5.5 inches. They're cheap like 10 cents at the dollar store. In this envelope, put something of yours that is BLANK. Several index cards, a small notebook or diary that isn't too heavy, a notepad, something that will fit in an envelope that won't be too expensive to send. If you want it drawn on or something specific done on the blank item, also include some sort of note. Send this blank item to your swap partner!
2. When you get an item from your partner, you will have about a week or two to work on it. Do whatever your partner wants you to do, IE draw, write stories, decoupage... just follow any special instructions given to you and make sure that the item is blatantly and irrefutably NOT BLANK! Then, send it back! Your partner will be all like "Omg!!! It wasn't like that when I sent it to you! Sweet!"

Suggested blank items:
Index cards, have your partner write their favorite recipes or stories on the cards.
Blank address label sheets, have your partner make some homemade stickers for you.
Note pad, have your partner keep a small journal for you of what's going on around them.
Something with black paper that uses gel pens maybe?
Something maybe with ATC's?
Blank tags like Christmas tags or price tags? Maybe blank maps or tickets or something unusual like that? Grid paper?

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

http://dreamisle.dexxent.com/swap/ Go to my website and fill out my form to enter this swap. If you prefer NOT to swap with a certain person or send to a certain country or have any special information I should know, include it in the 'Extra' box on the swap page.
I tested the form and the database about a million times, but if it doesn't work for you or you're afraid to ue the form for some reason, feel free to send a good ole fashioned PM!


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
20  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Lemon and Lime INSANITY on: December 19, 2005 02:06:10 PM
****More new cards on page 2!****

After a few hours of scanner trouble (and a few days of procrastination), here they are!

Each of these cards fits inside one of my Altoids citrus sours tins so basically I have an awesome little lemon-lime shrine!
What time is it?!
Lots of bubbles. I made a yearbook page like this for first deadline and nearly got kicked out because I guess it wasn't low enough for our schools standards.
Shaving cream cards cannot be avoided. Ever!
Simple. Elegant.
Kinda fancy for permanent marker and Post-It notes.
A couple limes playing checkers.
A lemon tree.
All the proper necessities for a lemonade stand (minus the dixie cups, darnit! maybe they'll be added later)
A house painted like lemons!
More simple yet elegant nonsense.
Lastly, some homemade stamps on some cardstock. I use the foam sheet leftovers from my $1 Craftster challenge (checker board) for stamps by cutting them to shape and hot gluing them to the bottom of those tiny domes that you get toys in those machines at the grocery store. I also cut a ton of tiny lemons and limes from the foam sheets.

I plan to add more stuff like stuff about lemon drops, lemon bars, key lime pies, all that nonsense.
Comments please!
