Desk Set

Hi, notice the new banner? Took me a little while on photoshop to change the color and add the text. The image is from www.thecutestblogontheblock.com.

I made this desk set as an xmas gift for my husband's boss' wife. Why? Because it's supposedly against the rules to give gifts to your higher ups so we decided to just give his wife a gift.

I found the template for the desktop calendar box here. I bought the calendars from Aunty Lianne at Cute Stuff. I always like to shop for fun and cute stamps at her store especially when I can go there without my kids.

The template for the stationary set is from Papertrey Ink--one of Lauren Meader's templates before she went out on her own. I love Papertrey Ink stamps and cardstock. Usually when I use printable templates I print them out on scratch paper and then measure where all the score and cut lines should be and transfer that onto the cardstock or paper I'm going to use cause I don't like it when all the printed score/cut lines show. Then I'd have to spend more time trying to hide the printed score/cut lines with paper or something else.

The little notepad and notepad cover template is also from Papertrey Ink (here). The monogrammed letter & circle border is from Just Rite Stampers. The other stamps are from various Stampin' Up sets.

Thanks for visiting!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
