1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Scrappers to interview on: August 02, 2007 02:53:18 AM
I want to start a new Guest Scrapper series on my scrapbooking blog, (Scr)apropos. I am looking for any scrapper interested in answering a few questions by email and sending images of or giving the links to 3-5 layouts that you feel best represent your style. Any style, any experience level welcome!

Depending on how many responses I get, I am hoping to feature one scrapper a week.

I cannot offer any real compensation other than bragging rights that your were interviewed and if you feel comfortable including your snail mail address when you answer the questions I will send you a handmade thank you card. I do get pretty good traffic, averaging around 800 page views a day with many days over 1000, so you can think of it as an easy first publishing opportunity if you like.

If you are interested:

You can PM me here

Email me at teresa.mcclary at 451press.net (remember to change "at to @ and remove the spaces)

Or visit my blog (link in my sig) and use the contact form there.

Thanks for participating!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Quick and Pretty Bookmark on: December 11, 2006 11:26:17 PM
I am made up several of these today for gifts. The yarn is Lily Sugar 'n Cream in Potpourri of which I have tons left over from another project. The pattern I made up sitting in the bowling alley during my sons league this afternoon, so I did not exactly take notes. I made two while still at the bowling alley so you know they work up fast. I will try to give a guess at the pattern below, if you find something off, let me know.


Using an E hook, chain 25. Do Linked Treble Across (see http://www.crochetme.com/linked-stitch-tutorial for the stitch instructions).

Ch 3, turn. *Skip next sc, sc, ch3, all the way around. Make sure to space it so you have a ch 3 space going around the corners with one in the center of each short end. Slip st the last ch3 to the base of the beginning chain three. Finish off, weave in ends.

Flower tassels:

For the first one, ch 18. Sl into the 7th chain from hook, ch6, sl back into the same space. Repeat until you have 5 petals. Finish off.

For the second, ch 21, and follow the same instructions as the first tassel.

Weave the ends behind the flowers in. Use the tails at the ends of the chains to tightly toe the tassels to the bookmark in the center of one short end, then weave in the ends.

I had to block it to get the loops and flowers to stay open nicely.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Gifts for my kids - First Post on: December 07, 2006 02:46:50 AM
My first Craftster post, although I have lurked for a very long time Smiley

These are both made from patterns I bought from Etsy sellers that my kids saw and begged for. The bug is from seller TigerLilly and the Zombie is from NeedleNoodles. Everything is made from random acrylic yarn in my stash.

All the 3-in-1 Bug pieces together.

Black ant body

With ladybug backpack

With green beetle backpack

with bee backpack

My 5yo loves insects and asked for lots of stuffed animals for christmas, so this should be a hit. I did make some changes to the pattern on the backpack so that it would stay on better and be washable. The black yarn was the last of some weird stuff that split easily, so I had to use a bigger hook than I would have liked on the body(used a g).

Then for my 9yo:


His whole stocking will be filled with zombie themed gifts.

Then for my first try at a Japanese pattern I whipped up this little fish for my husband. The pattern is here on the Clover site . Since it was just an exercise in reading a Japanese pattern (easy, btw) I already gave it to him. He is a fish keeping buff.
