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.

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.

3  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
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / uk shipping only? on: September 14, 2006 07:55:21 AM
Is it ok for me to only allow uk buyers on etsy?

I do want to eventually sell internationally but I read the customs info for selling internationally yesterday and didn't understand a word!

So is it ok for me to start just with the uk until I figure things out?
5  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / cafepress cheques on: September 08, 2006 03:48:25 PM
 I already posted a similar message on the business board but someone suggested that i ask here too, so sorry for the kinda double post!

I was wondering if anyone in the uk with a uk bank account works with cafepress and if so what do you do with your cheque? Can it be applied to your bank account being as it's in dollars?
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Getting paid with cafepress on: September 07, 2006 02:48:23 AM
I am seriously considering setting up a cafepress shop. But there's just one thing - is it too good to be true? Do people get their cheques without hassle etc? Has anyone in the uk tried them out? I know it doesn't cost anything to set up but I would be so sad if i got a cheque and couldn't put in my bank account or the cheque didn't even appear.
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lucky Red Envelope Art on: June 16, 2006 10:07:55 AM
I had a few of those lucky red envelopes which are supposed to be given at Chinese new year. We're not Chinese so we don't celebrate it. But I still love the lucky idea behind them. They were a bit plain (just the red and gold) so I did this to two of them.

It is properly rectangular in real life but the scanner has done some odd cropping action I didn't ask for! It's also robbed the glitter of some of it's sparkle.

I put a penny in each of them to be lucky but they're really meant just as little art. I sent one to my friend (she wanted a small piece of my art) and kept one. Might not be as lucky for me but I still think its pretty!

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lover's Knot wrap top on: May 24, 2006 09:24:04 AM
I made the Lover's Knot Shrug ages ago when it wasn't quite sunny enough here to wear it so i thought I'd play around with it to make it into a wrap top.

Months later, it's finally finished!

It's a bad picture of it because it's all navy blue so it kind of all blends in together...
I had another picture of me wearing it but the contrast between it and my black top wasn't big enough so it couldn't really be seen. (Also, I looked really confused having just tried to make the digital camera take a timed self-portrait picture without the instruction book!)

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded jewellery (with teapot toggle!) on: May 07, 2006 04:25:04 AM
I started experimenting with making beaded jewellery a couple of years ago and these are my favourite pieces. The ones I've hated I've recycled!

I always use loads of tiny sead beeds and live in fear of my necklaces snapping!

I found the teapot toggle online about a month ago and knew I had to do something with it.

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinkies and glass marble jewellery on: May 07, 2006 04:12:26 AM
I started making beaded jewellery a few years ago but since joining craftster I've been experimenting with making other jewellery.

The heart and Tinkerbell are made with shrinkies. I had the hardest time getting the heart to work out right because it kept sticking to itself when it was shrinking, then it wouldn't flatten even after I got it unstuck!
I also included my glass marble picture bracelet - Audrey Hepburn!

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
