Boys' Day and Shopping Too

So it was a really productive weekend in terms of crafting and shopping!  Yay!  First let me share a picture of the cute Lesportsac bag I bought yesterday.  It's one of their newest prints and I had a 15% off coupon.  It was surprising that my hubby was okay with me buying it.  I think he still feels guilty since I missed out on the tokidoki bag that was a really good deal on

On to my Boys' Day post.  Boys' Day is May 5th and I ran across this post on Dandelion Designs.  See HERE.  It inspired me to make these for my son's preschool class.  Just stamp, cut and tape.  I put a little label in the back with who it's from.

Hello Kitty pencils for the girls.

Car pencils for the boys.  Originally I had wanted to buy Toy Story pencils that I had seen at Price Busters but when I went back they were all sold out.  Should have bought them when I first saw them.  I bought these at Price Busters too.

There are other Boys' Day ideas on Dandelion Designs too.  See HERE.  I had thought about tying the fish with string to make it look like a fishing pole but I got a little lazy and wanted to get onto other projects.  And since all the kiddies will be moving onto kindergarten, I thought a little pencil would be perfect.

Before I go, I wanted to share some other shopping related news.  Die Cuts r Us is having an anniversary sale!  They have really great prices on TGF stamps and pretty good shipping prices.  Sunghee over at Creativity in Progress opened her own store at After Five Designs.  See HERE.  She has some really creative ideas.

It's a little gloomy and stormy here but hopefully you're having a nice day!  Thanks for reading!

Cute bag! Cute pencils too, esp the Hello Kitty! You're inspiring me to give stuff at the end of year preschool party, although I might just buy stuff, don't think I can make 20 things by the end of the month.

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.

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them.

I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand?

This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful.

I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet.  And th…
