I received from Glamis today. She got my style and likes spot on!

It began with this lovely envelope with handdrawn matches. I would never have thought off it.

Lovely box, Look at those beads!

Super stuffed!

The contents: pretty ribbon with butterflies all over, a bow, butterfly stickers, filigree like butterflies, butterfly charms buttons, more butterflies, sequins round and heart shaped, clay cakes (OMG soo from my wist I squeed),  a charm of a birdcage.
I love every bit and feel very lucky. Thank a lot Glamis!

Bonus because I love it so much!

I received from the lovely Smallhold yesterday, because I was home late from work, I'm posting pics today!

She made me an awesome travel set! Smallhold says the fake leather is from Yves Saint Laurent, my first thought was Louis Vuitton, either way it's great! So awesome I gasped when I opened the package and so awesome I have to post more pic's of the set:

If I was twelve I would totally play that my barbies were going on vacation with these suitcases and bag!
Traveling wasn't one of my themes but my partners could choose anything else! Smallhold explained she encourages young people like me to travel while they can. I couldn't agree more! The places these suitcases have been include Singapore, Paris, Cairo, San Francisco, New York and Mumbai. I wonder if you visted all these places Smallhold?

Smallhold paid attention to detail! Look at the underside of the suitcases!

The smalled suitcase was filled with goodies, the pic a bit bad, because I had to take the pic when it was dark outside. (You must understand I couldn't possibly wait another day to unpack my suitcase!)

Goodies! A pin with feet, velvet choker, flower shapes buttons <3, lots of sequins, furry little balls and a pretty pendant!

Thank you so much Smallhold!

I received from Sinjah yesterday. On to the pictures!

The box itself, I love it! Perfect color combo, handdrawn and inked details. Sweet!
Also you see that blue thing sticking out on the right. Yeah, it was crammed that full.
Dunno why the pic on the right's upside down, I swear I uploaded it the right way, tilt your head I guess.

Sinjah and me had a tea swap on the side, these are tea's from all over the world, can't wait to try them!

Told you it was crammed full.

The contents, love it all, flowers, buttons, stamps, stickers, handmade button earrings, inchies and inchie bases!

Handmade goodies! I can't wait to try my hand at inchies now!

Thank you so much for being my partner again Sinjah!
See you in the next round?

4  Matchboxes beautified in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cherryrose on: February 09, 2011 10:10:18 AM
For the matchbox swap I decorated two regular matchboxes and prettied them up.
The pink one was for Milady the other was for Sinjah. I nearly kept them both myself  Tongue

Everything I used for decoration was already in my stash. I would love to hear your thoughts.

I received from Milady today!

She was totally awesome! She even broke the rules twice!
She send me a bigger box (do feel guilty about my small one now) and she send a stamp which was not included in the box! How naughty  Shocked

Picture overload starting now:

The box itself, Milady included a note saying her theme was based on rainbows. It's real cute.
And what a work to put all off those sequins on one for one! One of Milady's favorite quotes is on the back. I love it to!

Before unpacking

My treasures, I'm so very spoiled. A stamp, ribbons, crystal like hearts, magnet strips, three beads/ornament, flower sequins and an awesome wheel with tiny things in it. (dunno how to name it).

The ribbons where smartly packed.

I love everything Milady send, but the wheel deserves a picture of it's own:

Thank you so much Jenn, you totally made my day!
She was unsure about thing to send to someone how does papercrafts as she is more of a sewer, but she did wonderfull, I can use everything!

6  Re: What paper crafting tools do you consider essential in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by cherryrose on: November 15, 2010 10:30:47 AM
I always use double sided tape, and I  bought a new paper cutting machine similar to this one:

I love distress ink also, and sharp knives. I don't use many other things but I think a circle cutter and Crop-a-dile would be handy.

7  Question about register form in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by cherryrose on: November 06, 2010 11:23:15 AM
I have a question about the register form for joining etsy.
I'm thinking about selling (I've already got a name, photo to use in the banner, idea's on what to sell and everything).
It might be a simple question, and I'm sorry for opening a topic just for this,
but if I'm going to do it, I'd better do it right.

What I wanna know is if your first and last name should be your real first and last name,
or if they should be the same as your username? Also, could you tell me how your first and last name would show up on etsy? Only in your profile, or anywhere else? Thanks a lot!

8  Whimsical book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cherryrose on: August 08, 2010 11:45:01 AM

I altered this chunky book for the jar of whimsies swap, I made it for Amylili. It's a mini book she can put pictures of her cats in. I used colors she likes; black, orange and red. It was a little children's book and quite small. It could fit in the palm of my hand. After altering it the book couldn't close normally anymore, although I used only flat items to embellish it. Any tips on how to avoid this?

I've received from Amylili yesterday.

All of it came in this rather amazing large Babushka doll:

I've no idea why it keeps flipping upside down Sad

Overview of everything I got:

Handmade items:

Felted butterfly (love this one would look cool in a picture frame I think) I'd love to try this technique out myself!

Envelopes out of Amylili's shop. These are beautiful!

some clay and fabric Items, love the donut and fish.

close ups:

One of my favourite whimsical items:

A little chiken, It can't be more than 1cm tall. In comparison with the giant Babushka it's real tiny!
I love my giant Babushka as well. (and all the other stuff of course)

Thank you Amylili, you really spoiled me!

10  Hoot! Altered Altoids tin in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cherryrose on: June 24, 2010 06:36:52 AM
I wanted to share this Altoids tin with a broader public. I altered this tin as part of a thank you gift the generous Quaggy in the 'Givers and needers' swap. She likes owls and so do I, so I loved making this tin for her. I do like feedback, as it can help me to get better at paper crafting! Without further ado, on to the pictures.  Wink

Front and side. I would love to know what others use for decorating the outside borders, I always use ribbon, but there must be an other way!

Front, back and inside. Please share your thoughts.  Smiley
