21  Re: Paper De-Stash and Junk Journal Goodies 2016 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: January 11, 2017 04:00:20 AM
You're welcome mom2em! I hope there's some stuff in there you can use! Cheesy

I also received from mom2em -- she sent a TON of paper goodness my way. I'm not sure how she fit it all in the box, but she did!

Here's a general look at everything -- this doesn't do it all justice. There are layers of things in there.


Smash journal goodies! The book is a 3D version, that even comes with 3D glasses. How fun is that? I have never done a smash book, but this feels like a good start. Cheesy


Freezer bags FULL of chipboard pieces, paper cut outs, ribbons, etc.


A look at some of the papers and rub-ons:

Thank you so much for everything, mom2em! I've already started a project some of this loot. Cheesy

22  Mixed Media Valentine Swap (Signup thru Jan 14; sendouts Feb 6) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by SonjaBoo on: January 10, 2017 04:21:44 AM

(photo as seen on Craftycupid.com)

Who loves a good heart? We do -- especially if they are made from mixed media!

Swap name: Mixed Media Valentine Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: SonjaBoo
Sign-up date range: 1/10/17-1/14/17
Date to send item by: Monday, February 6, 2017

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: Correct, I'm not
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Let's show some love for mixed media! In this swap, we'll each be creating ONE mixed media heart that is no larger than 6" or so in size. (You can cheat a little, just check with your partner.) Just big enough to look amazing, but small enough to create in a short turn around -- and hopefully keep postage costs at a minimum! This swap has three weeks for crafting so participants can receive their heart in time for Valentine's Day.

Again, this swap is for ONE heart -- but if you and your partner decide on extras, that is fine!

What can I use to create my heart?
You can use paper, fabric, wood, wool, canvas, paper clay, paper mache, glass... whatever inspires you!

What should my heart look like?
Follow your heart! Maybe yours is an altered canvas, or a mini shrine. It might be a tiny quilt, a gorgeous stuffie or a lovely needle felted creation. Or maybe you make a metal or glass piece to wow your partner. The possibilities are endless!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

23  Mixed Media Valentine Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by SonjaBoo on: December 27, 2016 04:13:55 AM
 
(as seen on Craftycupid.com)

Anyone up for a mixed media Valentine swap? My general thoughts are that we'll send a little Valentine project, no larger than 6x6 to our partners.

Potential ideas:
Small canvas
paper clay hearts
paper mache hearts
altered tin
etc., and so forth

I am happy to organize, and would get this up and running by early January so that we have some time to craft! Anyone interested?

Here are a few other images to get the creative juices flowing:

24  Re: 2016 Holiday and Card Swap - Gallery (send by Nov 10)... in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: November 22, 2016 05:26:55 AM
These cards and tags are so beautiful! We could start our own Hallmark shop, ladies. Cheesy

I finally have photos of the beautiful cards sent to me by my beautiful swap partners. First off, thank you all so much for your beautiful work. I am officially not filled with the Christmas giving spirit because I want to keep all of these for myself! Ha!

From Onyxnox -- such gorgeousness! I am especially obsessed with the ice skates. I might actually put those in a frame!



From gala apples -- my husband is totally getting that owl tag on one of his packages this year! (He loves owls -- it's perfect!)



From late_night_stamper -- I think you are definitely up at all hours stamping. Your cards are so professional looking!




Such a beautiful swap! Thank you ladies for a great start to the holidays!  Kiss

I also received an amazing Happy Mail from RougeRaven!

Check out the envelope! This is the back -- I don't seem to have a photo of the front, but she stamped out my address and her return address. It looks so cool!


Here's all the loot! Awesome ephemera, beautiful flowers, some cut outs I can't wait to use in a project, an adorable mixed media book to play with, and a bee stuffy! Cheesy


Here's a close up of the bee -- she's just too darned cute.


Thank you for everything RougeRaven! This was awesome! Cheesy

Oh man, there's some good stuff in here! I love those 3-D butterflies! And the watercolor envelope, and the zentangles... so cool!

Thanks for posting a photo pioneer9! I finally have some myself, but yours are far better!
Here's the envelope, which I love:



And the contents!
I love the crow so much! The ATCs are awesome, the typewriter is a magnet that I will bring to work (I'm a writer), and the bookmark will be used immediately! Cheesy

But I especially love this chick -- how fun is she? She's my new mascot. It's me, when I lose about 50 pounds. Haha. Cheesy


Thank you so much pioneer9! This was a fun swap. Cheesy

I FINALLY have photos of the incredible pocket letter that quaggy sent to me -- I am so sorry to take so long with photos. I had a virus/flu thing all last week that rendered me totally useless!

quaggy chose my hearts theme -- I soooooo heart hearts! Cheesy I adore this so much!


The back with all the awesome loot:


And some close ups! How gorgeous are these? She even made a counted cross stitch heart!








Thank you so much quaggy for a lovely swap! Cheesy

Holy moly -- so much awesomeness!  Cheesy

I received from curiousfae last week, and have been terrible about posting photos. (Mostly because I had a virus/flu thing all week -- but still. It's an amazing package that should have been posted sooner!)

Here's a look! My fireplace is now fully decorated! Curiousfae made me two gorgeous banners (the Happy Halloween as well as the fabric one along the fireplace), and light up Boo blocks!


A few close ups:




Thank you so much curiousfae! Our living room looks so festive now! Cheesy

Details of swap:
Many mixed-media artists out there have fun with Happy Mail swaps so lets bring another one to Craftster! For this swap, youll beautifully decorate an envelope (something around a 6x9ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Remember, whatever you do, you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!) Then, youll include FIVE small but handmade (or hand altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.

This is a low-pressure swap, with the only requirement being that you must send along five hand-made or hand-altered goodies, rather than store-bought. (Let's keep this inexpensive!)

What are crafting doo-dads, you ask? Here are some ideas!
Handmade  stickers, cards, altered tags, crafty ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, altered paperclips, ATCs, hand-cut stencils, paper feathers, paper flowers, altered buttons, etc. (And many other ideas not even mentioned here! Use your imagination, as long as someone can craft with it and you made it.)

Here are a few links for inspiration!
