1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The "I have too much scrapbook paper" swap on: March 17, 2008 09:36:26 PM
My idea is that one would gather some of their scrapbook paper that they want to share with others, cut the 12x12's into 4 6x6's and send three people the same set of 6x6 scraps that would be new to them. This way you get to keep one piece of the paper for yourself, but you get tonnes of fun new patterns to play with! I am writing this late at night/early in the morning, so if this is not clear, do let me know and I will attempt to clarify myself!  Cheesy Anyone interested?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How do you make a spellbook?! on: November 13, 2007 06:53:40 PM
Soooo, this will be my first Christmas with my boyfriend. He is really into NERO (New England Roleplaying Organization--www.nerolarp.com). He plays a knight and he 'casts' spells in game. He has dropped hints about wanting me to use my scrapbooking/papercrafting skills to make an authentic, medieval, beautiful spellbook for him. He already has the book itself (a nice, burgundy leather bound book with wire adornment on the front cover). He just wants me to 'decorate' the pages and write the spells in it. I think I will either attempt some simple calligraphy to write out the spells, but I am kind of at a loss as to what to do to the pages to make them look old, magical, etc. Does anyone know where I can find free medieval images to work from? Are there any ways I can age paper that is already bound in a book? Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks, craftsters!
