41  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / CD Case Collage on: September 21, 2007 08:41:02 AM
This is a CD Case I made for my year old niece Ella (EllaBella to me).  I started with a blank Cardboard CD case a friend uses for her band's CD's  I picked up two old books, Nursery Rhyms For Little Hands and Alice in Wonderland along with scraps from my stash.

42  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paris Pail on: September 19, 2007 10:35:06 AM
I havent been able to spend much time on craft projects for nearly a year.  But Ive recently been back to my paper therapy.  I had tried to make shadow boxes from my trip to Europe but they didn't work.  I wanted to have something to keep all of my paper memories togetherand one day I found the perfect vessel for these little treasures.  I bought an empty paint pail from Home Depot, used tacky glue to attach a Paris Map and then added a variety of stickers people have given to me over the last few years. 

I have a Paris Pail!

43  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Locating particular paper on: September 19, 2007 07:13:42 AM
Last spring I found several sheets of scrapbook paper on the clearance shelf at Joanns.  I purchased a pond scene with a grid on the back.  I would love to find one more sheet of that paper but I haven't been successful as yet.

Any tips on tracking down the company?  I have a small scrap - but I don't know how to search effectively.  Thanks
44  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button necklace on: May 03, 2006 10:32:28 AM
I saw a woman in Boston wearing this great button necklace.  I searched the internet for something like it and then tried to reproduce it.  This is the result and links to the original project.


If anyone makes these already let me know, I'd like to perfect one.  If you try it, please post a picture and include what worked out and what didn't.

45  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / stiff fabric on: February 03, 2006 12:33:01 PM
Sorry if this is out there already...I did a search first but didn't come up with an answer to my question.

I purchased Cross Stitch fabric in a tube at Jo Anns.  It is black and the stiffest stuff I've ever worked with.  Does anyone have an idea on how to make it more flexible?  Thanks
46  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / handmade paper swap on: February 03, 2006 12:16:52 PM
would anyone like to join a handmade paper swap?  I have made tons and tons of paper through the years, but I'm amazed at what others are creating.  I would love to share/receive handmade paper.

I'm not nearly organized enough to organize, so let me know if you are willing, or interested
47  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Librarians in Boston for PLA on: February 01, 2006 08:57:06 AM
I've found so many Librarian Craftsters - and with the Public Library Association Conference being in Boston this March - it might be nice to meet up - or perhaps descend on Leah's store.  If you are going to be at the conference let me know!  Thanks!
48  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / pretty girls from the 20's on: January 26, 2006 09:31:54 AM
So I took art classes...but watercolor was never my strength.  My prof would say "that's nice, but you really need to paint LARGER subjects.  So I put everything I did and all my materials away.  Until this summer when I started painting these litle ladies.  Using the skills and techniques that make watercolor such a great medium I finally found something for me.  These are maybe 3 inches tall.  

Step one: paint

Step two: find a background to compliment the figure

Step three: make card

49  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / second card out of a mailer on: January 20, 2006 08:38:23 AM
This is the second of three cards I made from mailers.  I have tons of scrapbooking & rubber stamping supplies - but I don't do either - I make cards instead.  Here are some pictures.

Each of the folds lift up and there are random quotes inside.

Pictures left from a 2003 calendar of the Romantics...how sweet.
50  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / card out of a mailer on: January 20, 2006 08:31:24 AM
I made these "cards" out of a regular mailer.  If you cut the botton, side and top of the mailer you'll open it like a card and so on the inside, they look unexpected, like this:

to the left is a small paper doorway

with a secret inside

this rolodex card has a polymer clay "seal" I made and painted, and added gold embosing powder and micro beads.

Before I send it out to my college friends I have to send them directions on opening.
