i am going to try again...i will extend the sign up date, so i can get more people hopefully to join. i have found some great info in a book, a magazine, from a company that sells them. i will even send mount to whoever needs them and sends me a sase! you will make 3 altered slide mounts for 3 partners for a total of 9 slides total. they will fit easily in an ATC tradind card sleeve, and getting 3 from 3 partners, you will have enough to fill one page! the fun thing about these is that you can put art on both sldes of the center of the slide mount, so you get double thert on one! for an idea how these look, go to boders or barnes and noble, see if they have the book artists sketcbooks and journal, and you find a whole section on them! try something new!!!! susi

yea.... you can get them at scrapbooking stores, or send me an sase, and i'll send you some, I have a sizzix die cut that makes them susi

Susi 02/10/2007 #

Ok, I made two tonight and wanted to make more! The scan I did is not very clear, but it gives an idea at least. I ca write up a quick turial if I need to, if you are unsure how to make them, They really aren't very hard! susi

user6421 02/22/2007 #

I\'ve never done these before... I\'m excited about trying something new. :-)

AngelFaeryKathleen 02/22/2007 #

Hi Susi, Just a silly question. I alter both sides of the slide and then do a picture to go into the center and make that double sided as well? Or is just the picture double sided but the slide frame single sided?

FridaKahlo 02/23/2007 #


here's a web site with some altered slide mount ideas. Dianne

Susi 02/23/2007 #

Yay!!! 7 people are signed up! I thought no one was going to do this! I am SO excited!

1st: Kathleen, when you decorate the slide mount you'll decorate it on both side. It can be as easy as just using a background stamp, or covering it with paper. Then you'll use two small pictures glued back to back to go inside the "frame" If you need any more info, feel free to ask. Check out Belle's link too, that may help!

2nd: Thanks Belle, that'll help a lot.

Remember, if anyone needs slide mounts, let me know. If you send me an sase, I can send you some! susi

Susi 02/23/2007 #

the link is very good, but these don't have to be as involved as those shown are... I just glanced so they might not have been very hard! But again, I can write up a little "tutorial" if needed! susi

FridaKahlo 02/24/2007 #

i never did one both sides, is that necessary? i always did it like an ATC then signed it on the back.

Susi 02/25/2007 #

thats fine to Belle, I don\'t think it\'s a big deal. I just thought if you did both sides that you could see both sides from the sleeve page. But if you, or anyone else wants to do just one side, that\'s ok with me. I\'m easy! susi

Question, in description it says 3 partners, but then only lists one partner? Which is it?

FridaKahlo 02/26/2007 #

i just saw that too, since partners were assigned, i guess it's 1

FridaKahlo 02/26/2007 #

whoops, i guess partners haven\'t been assigned yet. D

FridaKahlo 02/26/2007 #

well, darn, i even have two sets done already. Dianne

Susi 02/27/2007 #

oops, let me see what i did in the description... it was late, and I am sure I screwed up somewhere

Susi 02/27/2007 #

I just wrote to swap bot to see if I can change the number of partners.. I am also going to see if I can just change the start date, and see what happens,,, what a mess I made! susi

Susi 02/27/2007 #

I changed the sign up date to the 28th, but it still only gives one partner... lets hope that swap bot can help us out a bit here! susi

Susi 02/27/2007 #

I think what happened is that I wanted everyone to have 3 partners, and to make 3 slides per partner...I just assigned partners now, so we all will just have 1 partner unless I write to swap bot and ask them how I can change it. my idea was to be able to fill a whole atc page... 9 slide to 9 pockets... if I am able to change this somehow, would the original idea (3 partners, 3 slide each) be ok with all of you?
sorry about the confusion susi

FridaKahlo 02/27/2007 #

it's fine with me to have 3 partners, my slides are already made Dianne

Susi 02/27/2007 #

swap bot responded to my email, and said that I should be able to re-assign partners on my new sign up date of the 28th. Again, I apologize for the confusion; but it's been taken care of now! susi

Susi 02/27/2007 #

ok, are we all good now?

Susi 03/ 4/2007 #

Jennifer, I got your SASE yesterday, along with your goodies THANK YOU!!! You really didn't have to do that! So be expecting to recieve more slide mounts than needed for the swap, plus some goodies too, because you put on a LOT of postage for just the slide mounts. Please know that these mounts are not the plastic kind you find in the scrapbook store, but cards stock that I am cutting with my sizzix mzchine. I'll send you some of the 3 sizes that it cuts, one has square windows, one round, and the other rectangular. I'll get them cut and off tomorrow so they get to you quickly. susi

Susi 03/ 4/2007 #

hey, y'all... i found some great info! if you go to paperwishes.com, you'l find stuff on slide mounts, and cn even buy them there or templates, and even better... go to creativepapercrafts.net, and look at their webisodes! they have an archive of them, and two are about slide mounts. go to the one called slide mount mania, and watch it.. what little I saw before I jumped over to tell you all about it looked great! of course they are pushing there products, but you can get some great ideas too. they are more geared towards scrapbooking and cardmaking, but again, you can do what you want with your mounts. I also found an idea sheet on altering mounts in a packet i got from a scrapbooking convention years ago, and it has a ton of ideas. If I had the capability to do it, I'd scan it in a.pdf file, and send it out all of you. I'd say send me an sase, and i'd send you a copy, but it'd take a while to get to people, especially to those overseas...but, if you still want it, I'll send it to whomever does... overseas participants can send ephemera, usa participants can send just one stamp, it's only one sheet...and I'll send it to you for future use. OR... if any of you has a way to convert files to pdf, I can send it to you and you can convert it...I don't have a ckue how or what you need to do it. ley me ask around, I think I know someone who could do it for me just with a scan or a copy...if so, I'll get it done asap, and send the link to everyone...anybody have any other ideas, or are interested, let me know, and we'll figure things out! susi...who's going back to watch the rest of the webisode, lol

Susi 03/ 7/2007 #

found out which book it was that has tons of slide mount art in it... artists sketch books and journals, or the oher way around....by lynne perella susi
