1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Love in Paris on: February 08, 2007 03:23:52 AM
A French twist on the theme inspired by the Audrey Hepburn film 'Paris When It Sizzles'.

I used a pencil sketch I did on an envelope of the Eiffel Tower covered with Biro daisies. The heart in the middle shows a clip of the film and the writing at the bottom is 'Love In Paris' in French.

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Challenges Catch Up on: February 04, 2007 05:24:08 AM
I missed out on the first two ATC challenges but I decided to make some cards for them anyway.

Challenge 1 - 3 Course Meal

I used fairy tales for my inspiration and came up with a three course breakfast:

Course 1 - Bowl of Porridge (Goldilocks and the Three Bears)

Course 2 - Apple (Snow White)

Course 3 - Drink (Alice in Wonderland)

All cards were made by printing out the relevent passages from the stories. The 'meals' were then drawn on and a black marker border added. I used glitter glue on the corners to finish it off.  

Challenge 2 - Clowning Around

I didn't want to use a regular clown so I used a seal from an old animal snap game (scanned to enlarge it - I couldn't cut up the real cards anyway!). The beach ball gave me the idea for the juggling balls which came from the plastic tray on my hole punch.

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Playing Card Covered Clutch on: October 12, 2006 03:06:10 AM

I used PVA glue (all purpose craft glue often given to school children to use) to stick the cards down - with lots of holding the cards in place for a while because most of them had to bend slightly.

It's not sealed at the moment because I like the texture its got. I'm going to see how it wears for a while before making a decision on coating it with anything else.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Playing Card Covered Clutch on: October 11, 2006 05:52:38 AM
I was inspired by all the bags made from playing cards on here. But instead of making a bag out of the cards I took a freebie clutch (magazine gift) that I would never use (wrong colour for me) and covered it with playing cards. Because the bag remains intact the structure is really strong.




The other side is basically the same, just with another card.

I was able to push the cards up underneath the metal frame around the top so it fits really tightly and looks like it is made of cards. The hardest part was the sides - bending the cards so that they would fit and cover all the turquoise material underneath.

Thanks for looking  Smiley

My goals this month are:
  • to make my first sale
  • finish current projects to list
They should maybe go in a different order because i don't have that many items listed at the moment to make a sale from. Smiley
6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Great UK Round-Robin Journal Swap! on: September 29, 2006 09:18:34 AM
Am I allowed to join an on-going swap if I've never done any swap before?

I've finally been able to put things up for sale in my shop today so my goal is now totally complete!

I've done all the stuff to get my shop up and running! So I've met this month's goal! In a few days I'll be verified on paypal so I'll be eligible for seller protection (not that helps much as I understand it) so I can put the first few things up for sale! Excited and nervous! (and using a lot of exclamation points)

The Argos pots are very confusing. The title says its a 50 piece set but the description says you get 10 pots! Maybe there's something I'm missing?

It took me a while to figure it out, i'll try my best to explain....
You get 50 pieces in total

4 stacks of small, 2 medium, 2 large and 2 extra large.

I think there are 5 pots in each of the ten stacks of differing sizes.... if that doesn't make sense I apologise!  Smiley

Thanks for explaining. For some reason when I read it I missed out 'stacks' from the description!
