4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mono-prints on fabric swap? on: August 21, 2019 03:34:59 AM


Back in April, I had the opportunity to experiment with fabric printing (using a gelatin plate).  It was so much fun! 
I'm a newbie at this, but I can totally see why it is addictive Cheesy

Is there any interest in swapping for swatches of mono printed fabric?

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tea swap? on: August 06, 2019 11:00:52 PM
It might've been a coincidence, but my last two swaps were with partners that were tea aficionados. 
And yes, I love a good cup of tea as well Cheesy  Something about tea and crafting...it just works.

So, how about a tea swap? 

Something along the lines of sending/receiving
- 4 oz of loose leaf tea
- 2 smalls OR 1 medium tea-themed handcrafted item(s)


Anyone up for this?

Made this for my swap partner in the open swap tin Cheesy
It was fun working on a smaller scale and layering paper cut outs to give it dimension.

Details of swap:
For this swap, youll send the following handmade items to your swap partner:
- one journal cover
- one notebook insert
- two journal accessories

The above list of crafted items is the minimum requirement for this swap.
Please feel free to chat with your partner if you wish to swap for more notebook inserts, accessories, etc.
Extras are not necessary, but if you like to spoil your swap partner with extras, you may also opt to do that at your discretion Wink

Let's talk about journal covers.  For practicality, your constructed journal cover should be hardy enough for everyday use.  A variety of materials may be utilized to create your journal cover - canvas, fabric, leather (you may wanna check if this is a viable option for your swap partner), grungeboard, book board, etc.  Another idea might be to start with a plain journal cover that you can customize and embellish for your swap partner.  Too many possibilities! Cheesy    

Notebook inserts are an essential component in a traveler's journal.  The pages may be regular print paper, or even graph paper, dot grid paper, parchment paper, cotton linen paper, cardstock, recycled paper, etc.  Have fun with it!  

And last but not least, accessories!!!  Pen holders, attachable zip pouches, pockets, folder inserts, journal charms, washi tape holders, page markers, clippies, stickers, etc.  Basically, it's anything you think your swap partner would love to use with his/her journal.

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fabric beads - destashing my fabric scraps on: June 01, 2019 04:37:29 AM
inspired by all the beautiful fabric beads that have been made by craftylittlemonkey and the folks who attended the recent meetup at Asheville, NC, I decided to whip up a batch for my partner in the Happy Mail #5 swap Cheesy  It was so much fun sorting through the little scraps of fabrics and embellishing each one with stitches and seed beads.  Sadly, I still have a fairly large stash of fabric scraps after completing this project.  I reckon there will be more fabric beads in my future Cheesy
