Preschool Graduation

This is the scrapbook challenge sketch over at TGF this week.  I used it to scrapbook my son's "graduation" from preschool.  The school called it an "Aloha Party" but my son couldn't participate cause we were going on our trip the same morning as the party.  I was hoping his teacher could change the date of the party but she didn't so I was a little sad that he'd be missing kind of a milestone event.  Well, he didn't seem to mind too much because we were going to Disneyland after all and his friends still gave him leis and small gifts on his last day.

This turned out kind of wild for me.  I was inspired by not just the layout but also this DP that had an apple tree and the alphabet on it.  I would've used it for this layout but the tree was too big so I thought I'd make my own and then I thought of that book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom with the coconut tree (my son really likes the book too).  So that's why I made another coconut tree with die cut letters climbing up the tree.  The big arrow and the bracket are stamps from TGF's Spotlight Kit. 

The leaves are PTI felt just handcut.  The black letters (on acetate) and grass are rub ons that I bought from Peachy Cheap.  I made the trunk of the tree by stamping the lines (that remind of washi tape) from TGF's Spotlight Kit repeatedly on the brown paper and then handcut the trunk out.

I used TGF's Grad Ian and put a little lei on him.  Cute, huh?  I glued on each confetti flower so good thing I didn't need a lot.  I liked that this was a digital stamp so I could reduce the size a little.  The date is also rub ons.  The kraft cardstock is a die cut from Quickutz that I got from Die Cuts r Us when they were having a really great sale.  The die is supposed to fold into a mini album.  It's so cute!

Thanks for reading.  Hope you're enjoying the summer!

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…

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…
