Mouse Ears

Edit:  Awww, I didn't win but I think it's still super cute!

I thought I would participate in this week's scrapbook challenge over at TGF too.  Above is the layout to follow.

Here's my interpretation of the layout.  Because we had such a fun time at Disneyland and the kids still can't stop talking about it, I thought I'd better start scrapbooking about the trip.  So this page is solely about their new mouse ears.  They each got different hats and my older two got to pick their own ear styles and patches too.  You can click on the picture above to see their hats close up.  I put a description of each hat in the colored circles on the left.  I traced the large black Mickey ears from another Disney srcapbook set and the letters are die cut.

These are my kids represented by TGF stamps and wearing their mouse ears.  I love the way these came out.  My daughter was made with Ruby's head and Stamping Anya's body.  I left the message on the shirt the same since my daughter likes stamps too.  I used Cuddle Anya's hat as a template and kind of just trimmed it to fit.  The ears are circle punches that I colored with my silver gel pen.  I glued some bling and a gold tiara on the front.  My older boy is made from Happy Day's Oliver and Dress Me Ian's body/clothes.  I put Mickey's head on his shirt instead of the skull.  My son's hat was a lighter blue so I just colored it with a darker blue and put some glitter to match.  His ears are also circle punches and I drew in the mouse heads.  The little one is from the Oh Baby set.  I just turned his beanie into a mouse ear hat.

All the hats and my littlest one's ears are cut from felt.  That is my new love--felt.  Especially from PTI.  It cuts so nice and clean compared to ones I bought at Walmart.  Hahaha.  I can't wait til they come in new colors.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great night!

What a cute layout! I commented on the TGF Gallery too, I thought I already commented here, but maybe I didn't click post in the morning rush. Anyhow, the hats are soooo cute! So talented with the altering/customizing!

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!

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.

If you've read the story, yo…

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…
