31  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Scrapbook Kit Gift Ideas on: September 09, 2007 09:26:46 PM
We decided that instead of a boring  photo album as a wedding gift for some friends of ours,  we would assemble a sort of "Wedding Scrapbook Kit." The goal being that even if it was not something they were already into, they would be able to say "Hey, that looks like fun!" and at least have a go at it.

The problem is, I am not generally into scrapbooking myself and am not really sure what to include. (The boyfriend has no idea either, and is pretty much just enjoying looking at stickers.)

So far I have bought:
A small scrapbook (20pgs, 8x8")
Some Wedding Themed Stickers
Silver Sharpies
A glue stick

I have been thinking about things I probably have stashed around the house, like bits of ribbons and neat scraps of fabric, but we just moved and made a point of cutting down the craft-stash (aka clutter) while we were packing.

Since you guys seem to be so fabulous at this, I thought this would be a good place to ask. Any ideas for things to include, (that aren't going to cost me an arm and a leg?)

Thanks so much!

I actually really like the way the lines look on top.

It sorta reminds me of scratch-board, but so much simpler!

Very impressive. Smiley

That is quite possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen. EVER.

I may have to make one starring Trogdor the Burninator. Smiley

Great job. I'm terribly jealous.

are you willing to share the stencil?

I actually swiped the Johnny Depp stencil from Stencilry, knowing one day I would HAVE to use it for something. (Here's a link to the Pirates ones)

The one on the back I just free-handed. I could probably dig it up if you're interested.

Weird indeed, I have always believed stuff like that happens with things that have so much sentimental value attached to them.
My favorite piece of jewelry ever was a celtic-knot ring my Dad bought me, and I have a terrible time keeping track of it. I loose it and it ALWAYS finds its way back to me, no matter what.
I  lost it at a friends house several years ago, and he came back from vacation a couple weeks later saying "look at this cool ring I found on one of the hiking trails!"  I'm not sure how it got there, but it was definitely mine.

I love it! Smiley What does the text say at the bottom?

My best friend came home for Christmas wanting help with gift ideas for a friend of hers at school. Apparently this girl owns EVERY movie Johnny Depp has ever been in, (some of them she's never even watched!)

I decided she needed a Jack Sparrow shirt to add to her collection.
The front of the shirt, with a stencil I commandeered from Stencilry.

The back of the shirt, with a stencil I improvised on the spot.

I liked it, but I'm not sure her friend found it quite as amusing as I did.

This is the first piece of clothing I've ever made that's actually wearable, even though it's a bit small. So it will probably end up as a Birthday gift for a much skinnier friend of mine.
(To be completely honest, I had leave it unzipped a little bit to take a picture.)

One day I'm going to learn enough patience to do things properly the first time, but until then I'm going continue using bows to cover up seams where I didn't cut enough ribbon.

If I had a sewing machine that actually WORKED, my life would be much easier. Unfortunately, the two I have are in dire need of repairs/parts and I lack the motivation and the know-how to fix them.
Currently I get to do all my projects by hand, which usually makes me want to rip all my hair out.

I made these prayer beads for a good friend of mine. It was supposed to be a Christmas present, (she moved away shortly after) but it wasn't done in time and now I'm a little frightened to mail it, (I don't want it to get there in pieces!)

It's so cute, I almost want to keep it.
