1  My Cranberry + Butter Ivites are DONE!! [6 pics] in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Murphy88 on: March 29, 2007 08:57:17 AM
So I finally finished my super elaborate total DIY invitations and people are already receiving them in the mail. There is still tons of crafting left to do before June but I am glad I could at least get these out of the way and off of my list.

Our colours are cranberry and butter and our semi-theme is circles.

Hope you like all ten million pictures of them.

Folded Reply Card to fit in side pocket

Our map turned out pretty cool but my F decided we shouldn't post it for safety sake.

Comments are appreciated. Also suggestions for ideas to fit our theme or colour scheme are welcome!

Just thought I would add that these were made with 12X12 paper so we didn't have to buy big paper like you do with most pocket fold invites. Also we made two of the red pocket folds with one piece of paper.

2  Knitted Santa in Knitting: Completed Projects by Murphy88 on: December 17, 2006 09:52:57 PM
I hope this belongs here. I knitted him from a pattern book I got last christmas. It was fun to make but I hate hand sewing all the little pieces on. We had a riot with him last night at our x-mas party.

That sure is a snazzy mantel. I like the colour scheme!

Here are a few more picks of the house decorated up!

The colours we used were yellow and red because we are getting married this year and those will be our wedding colours. Plus we had a yellow table cloth to cover the ugly plastic tote that holds up the tree. Haha. We also used silver and gold a bit.

My fiance has decided the theme of our decorating will be penguins. Hence the tree topper.

5  X-mas Present Scarves (IMG Heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Murphy88 on: December 17, 2006 09:16:30 PM
Some easy scarves fabulously modeled by my boyfriend. Some quick fuzzy warm gifts for my future sister in law and mommy. Mind the PJs and the glare.

Comments Appreciated!! Anyone know how to straighten out acrylic/wool blend fringe?

6  Semi-Freehand Unicorn Sweater!! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Murphy88 on: December 17, 2006 03:22:40 PM
This is my first craftster craft post so bear with...
(Does this count as stencil? It didn't seem to go in clothing or iron- ons)

I made a unicorn sweater for my friend for x-mas. I painted the design on with white acrylic mixed with a fabric medium. I had to put a couple of coats on to reach the desired colour.

It is made with a Sublime Stitching iron on transfer. I traced onto regular paper then poked a million tiny pin prick holes along the design. Then I took all purpose flour and a paint brush and pushed the flower through the holes to transfer the design onto the black fabric. It is a cheap alternative to transfer paper and works surprisingly well. Afterward you can just dab any remaining flower with a damp cloth and presto!!

Tips and coments appreciated!!

Wow so many great ideas! Those beach glass ornaments are fabulous. They look like they came from an expensive store.

Here is how I display my christmas cards. They are litle polka dotted mittens attached to clothespins.

My Boyfriend is taking the picture for me. That's why it's not very good. Haha.

Christmas crafting is my favourite because it helps me procrastinate during exam season.  Tongue
