1  Re: 2018 Annual DeStashAlong Thread in Craftalongs by TheMistressT on: July 20, 2018 10:31:16 AM
There has been some impressive destashing in the group lately! CONGRATULATIONS! I am about to have my second group garage sale (tomorrow), but that only includes a few craft-related items. While I still do try to go to stash first, I recently started getting the hang of my Cricut machine so I bought 4 pads of paper!  Roll Eyes However, this card was made almost entirely from stash! The only thing that wasn't was the material used to add dimension and shine to a couple of the jars, which was a gift... and therefore not my fault!

I've also been cranking out cross stitch projects which has had very little stash usage.  Sad

2  Halloween Pop-up Card in Halloween Decor and Parties by TheMistressT on: July 19, 2018 05:27:33 PM
I started getting into using my Cricut recently and bought a set of SVG files for about a half-dozen different kinds of cards. I happened to have some cool Halloween paper and supplies, soooooooo... it's Halloween in July in my studio!

I recently received a gift of some neato glossy glaze stuff, so I added it to a couple of the jars on the paper to give it some texture and shine. And added at stamped and embossed skeleton detail.

Here's the POP-UP ACTION! (scary) It was fun to play around with vellum, but I had to order special adhesive and it took nearly 2 weeks to get here!  Tongue It worked, though.

The set came with envelope cut files, too, I added a little embossed stamped detail to it, too.

Hopefully, I'll remember that I have this come October!

Thanks, UTM!

This thank you note that I did using my Cricut. It's my 44th project this year and it's only mid-July! I have 5 other projects underway that I can think of, so I guess I can just stop crafting sometime in August?  Shocked  Cheesy Tongue Tongue

4  Cricut Cut Thank You Note in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 16, 2018 05:55:56 PM
I'm getting the hang of my Cricut and have a few projects underway that I am waiting for a few supplies to finish. In the meantime, I made another thank you note. This is for the friend who helped me figure out the whole Cricut thing and who sent me surprise supplies as gifts after she got home from her visit!

I am really loving the 2-sided cardstock scrapbook papers for these cards!

I'm ridiculously excited about the gingham envelope for some reason. Could be because I'm a sucker for just about any checked pattern.

Tendstowardschaos: That quilt will be treasured! So pretty! All your other projects, as usual, as so well executed. I think I will use your pin hoops as inspiration when I get around to making a display for pins and patches!

Wryly: What a cool way to fancify that team hat!

I'm still grinding away at home improvement projects, but am squeezing in some crafting here and there. I have some almost-complete project from playing with my Cricut, that will hopefully be done in the next week or two (waiting on supplies for a few) and I have been putting in some time in the evenings on this cross stitch. Of course, it's potty themed, because... ME. Wink

I'm starting another here pretty quick!

6  No. 1 Filtration Cross Stitch - Pun-y Potty Humor in Needlework: Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: July 15, 2018 10:37:13 AM
Annnnnnd, I just couldn't stop cross stitching potty jokes!

This is the first of three new patterns, this time with a more anatomical vibe.

I bought the patterns on Etsy. This was stitched on 14 count Aida, because that's what I had, but the patterns are written for 18 count which I will probably switch to using as they are larger images.

7  My First Cricut Project! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 08, 2018 03:08:32 PM
A friend who has done some really cool paper projects with her Cricut came to visit and helped me get over my fear of using mine.  Undecided I started kind of simple with this pop-up card.

I used only stash materials. The "flag" piece is something I cut using a friend's Skizzix a few years ago. The heart was cut by my visiting friend and in her stash. Not sure what tool she used for that.

It was fun to have such a perfect use for some two-sided cardstock paper! I cut and folded an envelope to go with it, but am waiting to get some good paper glue before I finish it. I used two-sided tape adhesive on the card.

SVG files were purchased here.

8  I Made Yellow Squares! Turmeric-stain Disguising Napkins in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 08, 2018 02:55:05 PM

The title pretty much tells the story. The ManFlesh has been cooking a few recipes with turmeric lately and man, that stuff STAINS. So I decided we needed turmeric-meal-specific napkins.

I made only four since we're unlikely to ever need more than that at one meal, but did go to the effort of mitering corners in my favorite napkin finish. I had intended to make them out of 100% linen, but a linen blend is what I could get on one trip to one store with my 2-day 60%-off coupon.  Roll Eyes

TTC: that yarn is super cool! I hope to see it in some projects around here. Wink

UTM: what a nice project for today!

I decided to perk myself up by making this little house box for some hopeful Independence Day vibe around the house. The paper mache box was an extra in my first ever craftster swap back in 2008! I have been hoarding it until just the right idea came along. The house still needs some details, but I'm calling it done-for-now.

I made this little house using mostly stash! Two of the papers and two of the ribbons are new, but all the other stuff was stash, including the paper mache house box which was an extra I received in my very first ever craftster swap way back in 2008.
