Started to work on week 3, The stack I thought was DCWV is actually Reflections. I guess I need to make a trip to Joann's. I hope to find something similar.

I have an idea about week 5

BigGrin Shopping can always be fun. I know what you mean about stacks/paper brands, though.

In round four of this swap, it had Imaginesce as the line. For some odd reason I had remembered it as creative imaginations and started, then realized it was wrong Blushing Blushing. I wouldn't have felt so stupid, only I was the one who wrote the 'rules' Flapper Flapper LOL LOL

Oh well - glad you have an idea on round 5 - I bet you can find some DCWV that you like. It doesn't have to be any particular one (unless you want it to be) - any of their line works.

How is everyone else doing? Hope you are having fun!

I sure hope i'm doing this right, I've got week one and two done, I am having trouble with the "clear" word, and walking Michael s and Joann's did not help..
I wish my mind would get out of the rut and think outside the box.

Hope everyone is making progress.

I bet you are doing just fine. If you want, you can always email photos and ask, but as long as you are following the rules, it should all be great. BigGrin BigGrin

Sorry, not all the photos/links are quite right - I will look up what I did wrong, but I know the pages are rightHuh Huh

A few ideas for clear

A card that is clear - I don't know who made this one, but thought it was pretty [img]https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTKWQQt51Eb_hXE22sADR2ik8XcI_qSj-l_0GMc3xQWo3mKoXMSZ8rxRuQ[/img]

Some ghost type shapes - here is a pictures of some Heidi swapp ones. I bought some, but then started cutting from my cricut: [img]https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSIs9ALUmgvBWTdJspKywjDri4Dy6cJBPJEw8VYLHw81-Zd5ya1hg[/img]

A piece of plastic done with alcohol inks: I did a class on ustream about using alcohol inks on plastics. I ended up using a freezer bag for some of the samples and they came out great! I will find some photos of where I used them, but it will be later today before I get the posted.

Here is the link to the video on some different techniques http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25343613

Some microscope slides always work - here are a few you tube ideas

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFegciEpnBc

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FapSSlhRktg
Or, use an embosser to make a card or tag (here is a link to one I found - I think Tim Holtz also did something similar)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUP0Y2Bl-7k

the clear accent pieces from Tim Holtz work too

Using cuttlebug to clear emboss
You can buy clear cardstock, or, if you ever purchase anything in that clear plastic, cricut cartridges, many toys, a lot of tools, they all come with the heat sealed plastic to cut apart. Just cut out the flat parts to re-use BigGrin This is a great video. One note - I usually score the plastic before folding, but usually I don't fold unles it is a card http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChTbZftVXqM

a few more ideas:

Glossy Accents

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...6wuU&feature=related

Hope these help with ideas. The sky is really the limit here. Even the clear plastic packaging from embellishments works - just incorporate something clear into whatever you create.

I am using some clear stencil sheets... They cut well on the cricut. I found them in the painting aisle at AC Moore... Still trying to make it all come together but so far so good!

I was in a Tim Holtz style tag swap and I sanded one side of Ranger fragments, stamped with staz on ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. You just have to be careful you do not overheat the fragment.

Laugh Laugh

can't wait to see these. I know I am not done with 5 weeks yet, but according to the calendar, we are only on week 2 Flapper Flapper It is perfectly fine to work ahead - sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

So, Week three (or the third swap if you are not doing these in order) starts tomorrow BigGrin BigGrin I still haven't figured out how to get week 5 to work how my mind sees it. Sometimes I think it comes up with these abstract things on purpose - just to mess with me LOL

I haven't really worked much on my swap this past week Blushing Blushing but I did find something else fun to try (blog has some stuff). This really fun little book card!

Blog with how to's is HERE

Here is mine - unembellished and tried with scrap paper. I am going to try adding a few Indians and Pilgrims from My World or a Paper dolls one(can't remember cartridge, but this may be it). I think a turkey or two layered into the scenery should look really cute - planning on layers like she did in her blog.

I like the way the outside really looks like a book ... Here's the link to the one I made ... she gives a little more instructions on the actual structure HERE
So far I've only made one of them, but they really are fun to make

definitely love her instructions!!! Wish I had seen them earlier. I had to redo the cover twice, but I have my sample done up and now will try some with a plan LOL LOL

Thanks for that link! I soooo see my G45 Christmas papers with this! Thinking it would be great to give to party hostesses.

Hmm, wonder if this one will post?

Hope you all (who are in USA) had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

This swap has been on hold for me for a few days while I worked on some mini albums (details on my blog if you are interested). But, thinking today will be a wonderful time to continue as I may have figured out how to get my choice piece to work the way I want it to!!!!

How is this going for everyone?

How is everyone doing with this swap? Or, is it on hold for a bit? I have been looking at some fun Christmas ornaments and thinking of creating a few. Here is one that a Girl Scout buddy made for me a few years ago

Christmas Ornament

Simply some Girl Scout papers and fun glitter with a pretty ribbon. They look great on the tree as the lights glitter behind them.

Yes, the tree is up. Dd always does for me after Thanksgiving. There are a few more ornaments to hang - that is how we do things. She gets the tree, lights, garland, and basic ornaments. Then we usually make a few more and hang others as the weeks move towards Christmas.

Any special ornament traditions?

We have been sick around here. Which really stinks because my Husband and I went on a two night trip for our 20th Anniversary, I felt horrible the whole time. Definitely not the weekend we had envisioned !!!!

I try to make an ornament every year for the tree. It is fun to see crafting trends and the progression of my skillsBigGrin . Every year each of the kids pick out a new ornament, I try to guide the little ones to choose ornament that represents that year. Not always successful at that. I have no idea what the big orange snowflake my oldest chose one year symbolizes . This year I am looking for a cute chocolate lab ornament to represent our 9 month old puppy.

I am pleased to say that I finally figured out my choice piece and they are almost all put together! I hope you all will like them! I tried something completely new for me and I think I am hooked! It involves twinking H2Os and glubers! I so love these twinkling H2Os that I am awaiting a large addition to my stash courtesy of a Joann's sale!

I hope everyone has a happy (and healthy!) crafty weekend! I need some inspiration for the outdoor piece...otherwise I am almost done...just a few finishing touches to put together!

Glubers are just giant super sticky glue dots (made by Cosmo Cricket) and the twinkling h2os are awesome little pots of shimmery watercolor. I had a couple that I bought at a weekend crop and I decided it was time to break them out! See the link to Joann's for more details. :)

Have a great day!

Sunnybrook - I can't wait to see your piece with twinkling H2O. I don't have any, but they sure do seem wonderful when I see results BigGrin

CricutJunkie - glubers are ginormous (to borrow an 'Elf-ism' sticky dots. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RXq16qa5HE

Sunnybrook: Looks like we were posting at the same time BigGrin Thanks for the link!

Denise - hope you had fun with the 12 days of Christmas!
