1  Re: Paper De-Stash and Junk Journal Goodies 2016 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by sydney23 on: January 14, 2017 08:03:30 PM
Here are the massive amount of goodies Smmarrt sent! Again, this'll be a lot of photos, but I wanted to be sure everything was included.  Grin Here's a shot of everything all together, with lots of the smaller bits still in bags. She stuffed a bubble envelope full!

Safari magazine pages, calendar pages, and a few cards

A Japanese (I think!) magazine, loads of vellum sheets, large vellum envelopes, paper doilies, and a cute notebook

Lovely handmade prints! The pink & blue one is very pop-art-ish!

Children's book pages with great illustrations, cardstock, stickers, paper doll bits, a photo, and a card

Pretty patterned papers, pockets, letter stickers, patterned napkins, and another card

A paper bag book, cardstock book, travel maps, and some vintage pages about Georgia

A Ziploc full of die cuts! I love the ones on the printed papers and maps, like the leaves & birds, and the little painted circles!

These last few things were in the second bag... more patterned napkins, library cards & pockets, a beautiful vintage postcard piece, index cards, metal tags, sticky notes, tags, and a thin sheet of Chinese characters

IV labels, "Hello, my name is stickers," business cards, tickets, stickers, buttons, little ribbon roses, and bingo pieces

More pockets & envelopes, museum info cards, tags, index cards, and playing cards from different sets... I love the one with the deer on the back!

And finally, wooden & chipboard pieces, saying cards, and a stack of pretty Project Life-type cards... I actually have a set of these that I never put together into a book! Maybe I'll finally get around to it soon & use these too!

Thanks so much, Smmarrt! I really love a lot of the pieces you sent, and I can't wait until I find a project for it all! I was super excited about the paper bag book, so hopefully I'll be able to work on that soon! Smiley

I received both of my boxes this week! First was a small box from rockingbearranch, which was stuffed full! I spent a while taking photos of everything so there may be a lot, but I wanted to be sure I got everything! Grin Here's a shot of everything all together:

A pretty journal, pen, and some beautiful feathers

Ribbons, pretty lace, & washi tape

All this was in this cool mint tin! There are photo corners, a lock & keys, little (tea?) tags, a stamp, section of a tape measure, and little squares of cardstock with a pattern on one side & photos on the other

An ATC-sized canvas, chocolate, & LOADS of pretty patterned papers! I think the monochrome & red colors are my favorites!

Sheet music, a Georgia map, and vintage magazine pages

These lovely marbled pages!

Children's book illustrations, die-cut pieces, and paper scraps

Almanac & dictionary pages, stickers, doodles, and papers

Really cool Mexican Loteria cards, more doodles, stickers, papers, and ephemera

Thanks so much for the lovely package, rockingbearranch! I love all of it, but my favorite pieces are probably the found pages and ephemera! I can't wait to use it all!

I also received from Smmarrt this week; I hope to take photos of all those goodies tomorrow in the sunlight!

3  Re: Pocket Letters Round 2 in The Swap Gallery by sydney23 on: July 20, 2016 12:12:03 PM
I received my pocket letter from curiousfae today, and it's BEAUTIFUL! I'm not going to lie, I was squealing a bit as I opened it up! I just couldn’t stop taking pictures of it! Cheesy

Just look at how pretty her packaging is!

Everything was wrapped up so nicely inside the envelope.

And this is the beautiful pocket letter! She went with my Old Hollywood theme, and it turned out so nice. The cards are each a movie poster or an actresses of the era. The actress cards are printed on nice, glossy card stock, so they even look like real trading cards! I also really love the hand-lettered names on each card.

And a few close ups of the front.

The back has tons of goodies! Stickers, cool paperclips, washi tape... even a little ATC kit!

And each card has a quote from an Old Hollywood film or actor on the back!

She also sent a postcard, more stickers, & extra actress cards that weren’t used.

Thank you so much, curiousfae! I absolutely love it! <3 Here's one last pretty photo, with a photobomb from Charlie. She was really interested to see what it was!

4  Band Tee to Zipper Pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sydney23 on: July 26, 2015 11:36:41 AM
I got a few Hawk Nelson t-shirts for Christmas a few years back, but they were a bit too tight and never really fit well. However, I really liked the designs and didnt want to just get rid of them. I decided that turning them into zipper pouches would be a great way to keep them and get them out of the closet.

I forgot to take a before photo before I began cutting up the shirt, but this is the design on the first shirt.

I was able to cut two 9x7 rectangles out of the tee. I also found some light pink fabric for the pouch lining.

Aaaaaand here is the finished zipper pouch!

I was a bit worried that the large words would get cut off by the side seams, but they stayed pretty well centered.  I have another HN shirt that Im hoping to get two pouches out of Hopefully theyll turn out as well as this one did!

5  Tiny Chalkboard Trinket Boxes in Completed Projects by sydney23 on: July 17, 2015 05:21:07 PM
These smaller boxes were stained with a steel wool & vinegar stain, and the inside lid was painted with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint like I did  with the larger box. (Also on Craftster: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440019.0)

(Also not sure why my photos are sideways... They're all rightside up on my computer.)

6  Stained Chalkboard Trinket Box in Completed Projects by sydney23 on: July 16, 2015 03:25:05 PM
I made this cute little box inspired by one I pinned a while back. (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/188025353168293320/) I couldn't find the site the original project was on. It seems as though it doesn't exists anymore; the pin just links to a site that lets you buy the old domain name.

The box was a plain one like you'd find in the wood section of a craft store, stained it with a steel wool & vinegar mix.

The inside lid is painted with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint.

To keep the lid from falling back when the box was opened, I added an old drawstring (from a pair of shorts, maybe). After cutting it to size, I attached it to the box with thumbtacks.

And a few detail shots...

The stain aged the hardware a bit, which I thought was really cool.
