Talking The CCS Gallery! Show us your handiwork!

Hi fellow crafters and artisans! We thought it would be fun for all of us to have a chance to show off all the hard work we do with arts and crafts.

Consider this thread a DIS Virtual Gallery! Post pictures of your handiwork for everyone to Ooooh and Ahhhh over. I know as a crafter and artist myself, sometimes it's just fun showing off your work.

The only guidelines involved are to keep your pictures a reasonable size so that they are easily viewed

Also, please make sure that your pictures remain available to be seen on the boards. Once a thread gets some age to it, if pictures are not still being maintained on the site that you host it on, all we see is a red "x". If we see a post with a picture that has gone to "x", and doesn't return within 48 hours we will take the post off of the thread so that "visitors" to our gallery are not scrolling through a bunch of "x"s. If this happens to one of your pictures, you are more than welcome to repost the picture once the image has been fixed.

If you would like to add descriptions of what you made, directions of how you made it, the inspirations behind what you do.. anything like that, I think that would be great and would add to the fun of the gallery! It's a way to inspire your fellow crafters!

So, who is going to put up the first display in the CCS Virtual Gallery?

Hey, I'll play. I haven't done much lately, but here's one of the mini albums I made last winter for the family friend that's more of a surrogate grandmother. I made a similar one for DH to carry around and show off. It only goes up to DS's 2-month portrait. (He's 11 months old today.)

Hey, that's neat! How did you do it? Is it fabric covered or is the design painted on?

Paper (Scrapworks I think), stickers, rub-ons, printed transparencies, and photos. That's about it. These days it has to be quick and easy. The album itself is just a 12x12 sheet cut into 3rds, stuck together and folded. I think I spent may an hour or two putting this together. I don't even have that much time anymore.

That's pretty cool! From the picture it looks like a full size album! That's a neat idea. Thanks for posting it.

I'll go ahead and put up my latest craft I've been making hand beaded dog collars and this fall I started selling them at craft shows. Not enough to retire rich just yet, but I haven't done half bad.

Since I was an artist before I was a crafter I thought I would post some of my artwork. I mostly dabbled in watercolor and acrylics and pencil and the majority of my subjects were wildlife. At one point in my life I did portraits of people's dogs for them. The most "famous" dogs I ever did was author Patricia Cornwell's dachshunds. Wolves like the one below were another one of my favorite subjects.

Lauri, I love those collars, and the wolf is very good! This is a great idea, I love looking at other's work.


I am going to need help, I have only posted pictures on the Dis one time, I don't remember how I did itm, and when I did the pictures were very small and I didn't know how to resize them. If anyone can pm me the instructions, i will try again.

My first digital scrapbook layouts

I've just gotten started in digital scrapbooking, and I have to say that this is almost as addictive as traditional scrapping. I'm having a great time downloading papers and elements. It's so great that everything is reusable and the combination possibilities are endless. I don't know that I'll ever like it better than traditional scrapping, but once you figure everything out, it does seem like you can get pages done faster. I'm in the process of redoing my sister's baby book as it is now 44 years old and has fallen apart, so I'm scanning the pics into the computer and making her a digital album in 8x8 format that I will then be able to print out. I also digitally scrapped a few pics of two of my friends babies, that I am doing 8x8 also, so I can print them out. Here is what I have finished so far.















OOPS, SORRY, DIDN'T REALIZE THERE WAS ALSO A SCRAPBOOKING GALLERY, WILL POST THESE OVER THERE.

My first foray in creating an autograph book. I used scrapbook paper and Jolee dimensional stickers, as well as silver rimmed tags and epoxy stickers to add the name. I would still like to add a Mickey Mouse dimensional sticker on the left side, cover the inside of the covers and maybe figure out how to laminate the whole cover for added protection.
