1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Preparing and Organizing. on: August 01, 2011 06:19:29 PM
Hi Smiley

So first off, I'm heading to visit my sister in a few weeks and since her and my brother-in-law are going to be at work during the day, I want to bring my scrapbooking stuff to keep me occupied. That being said, how should I prepare for this? I'm guessing it would be something like getting ready for a crop but haven't been to one of those either. So, I'm asking, how you prepare yourself?

Also, how do you organize your supplies otherwise? Like, at the house. Right now, mines just in some plastic containers but those pretty much just have things stuffed in them because I can't get them to work otherwise. Whats your system?


Minor side note, I've been searching for a musice note stamp no bigger than inch and a half, cant find one anywhere. Ideas?



Im really interested in reading what you have to say.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Building a page? Do you always make a whole book? How about letters? on: February 23, 2011 08:34:47 AM
I too am just starting out.

I'm currently working on one book of my son. I've chosen all the important events in his life, such as "first's" and whatnot. I pick only a few photos from each event and make it into a two page spread. It does take some time but if you take the time to organize your photos and supplies first, it cuts your time pretty much in half. You can also make an album based on just one event, such as a vacation. As far as all the photos from events and what not, I have them either in frames around the apartment or in just a plain photo album.

As far as designing a page, I usually lay out the paper, which I pick on the pictures, I want to use for the event, relavent stickers, and any other embillishments. I just play around until I get something I like. You can also go on to scrapbooking sites and download whats called 'sketches'. Theyre layouts of pages that are simplified so you are able to copy it with your own photos and whatnot. I usually do an entire page in one or two sittings but I do know some people who work on several pages at once. As far as collecting items, I put things like ticket stubs in a box with my scrapbooking stuff until I'm ready to work on that page.

I both buy letter stickers, letter stamps and handcut letters out using a craft knife. I use a ruler to keep everything in line, and using clear stamps helps alot. I wouldn't buy an expensive cutter until your sure your going to be using it quite a bit, just to make sure you get your money's worth out of it and its not just collecting dust.

Hope I helped some.

Myssi.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Unwanted fabric? on: February 17, 2011 06:34:38 PM
I've been sewing since a very young age, therefore accumilating quite a fabric hoard that could rival someone's three times my age. Anyways, I'm getting ready to move out of my parents' house and I've found ton of fabric that, after a long and hard thought process, I don't think I will use. I don't have time to sell it and I don't exactly want to hand it over to the trash guy.

Anyone know of any place I can donate it? the fabric ranges from quilting to apparel...

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Slice? on: February 13, 2011 08:24:10 PM
Does anyone own a Slice? I'm looking into getting one because I don't scrap enough to warrent purchasing a Cricut. I'd like a basic opinion on it? I'm sure I'll only be cutting paper and maybe lightweight cardstock.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2009 Prom Dress Goodness on: November 22, 2009 06:42:40 PM
So I was creeping around I just realized I have yet to post my prom dress from last year!

Made completely myself, no pattern or anything. It was my senior project as well so I had to do extinsive research, keep track of expenses and how I made it rather than just dive in like I do any other time.

The bodice is a full corset made from black twill with ribbon edging. The skirt is made from some silky material I dont remember exactly what it was and I deleted my presentation. The skirt it three layers, each gathered so the next layer is larger (the bottom layer ungathered was long enough to go from the top of our stair case the bottom with fabric to spare Shocked)

Super cute and creative!

....would it look wierd if I made one for the 4th gen nano? you know, a bit too long and a bit too thin to be a poptart, but still...

I was thinking about the same thing... could make it kind of like those Go-Tarts they have...long and skinny.. just an idea
