Here's a layout from TGF's newsletter challenge. I've been staring at this challenge for at least a couple weeks now. And here I am waiting til almost the last minute to complete the scrapbook page. Well, while we were at Disneyland, my kids got a lot of autographs from the characters so I decided to make a page with one of them following the layout above.
Isn't Peter Pan's autograph so humongous?! Man, I had a hard time fitting that in some where. I had to use my Never Ever stamp set.
I also used PTI's tab die cut to make the tabs and stamped the sentiments from the Never Ever set. I also found some feathers (while cleaning my storage room). It was originally pink but I colored it red with my copic pen to match Peter's. It's attached to a small green felt circle. I had to put felt in some where.
I did a little bit of paper piecing with the girl. Her dress, book, hands, hair and ribbon. Overall, I didn't quite feel the completed page. It's okay but I think that huge autograph is bugging me. But I'm glad I started scrapbooking the autographs. My kids will be doing some pages on their own. Hopefully, I can just stand back and watch them and not take over.
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!
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.
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…
