Mini album, (part 3), the end

And here is the rest of it. The pictures weren't as easy to take the more mobile my daughter became so a lot of times there weren't that many to choose from. Plus I almost forgot to take photos some months. Again this is Beautiful Blooms 2, the die cut and matching stamp as well as the leaves. Changed it up a bit by putting the date in the flower. And used a different ink, the pink shimmery Brilliance one, just so it would show up better.
Same thing for this one. I tried to add some diamond stickles to the flowers, it didn't really show up too well.
Here are some felt flowers that Eva sent me a while back. I just added buttons. Couldn't find a button small enough for the tiniest flower. I think I might go back and punch a paper circle or something and stick it to the center so it matches the rest of the flowers.
I got these flowers from the Creating Keepsakes Convention when I took an SEI class. It's from the Mimosa collection, happened to nicely match my daughter's shirt. Then I stuck a papertrey ink button on. I only have the white/cream mix and spring mix PTI buttons but they go with a lot of things.
This is a chipboard flower from Maya Road that I got during a sale at Two Peas in a Bucket a while ago. So bad that I haven't used one until now. I painted it with some acrylic ink I bought a while back after I took a Creating Keepsakes Convention class. Then I stamped the center with one of the flowers/centers from Technique Tuesday's Kabloom which again, I got from a CKC class. I was a little impatient and the ink hadn't completely dried on the edges, so when I was trying to put the flower back together, some of the white ink got onto the flower, oh well. I was too lazy to try to repaint the flower then having to let it dry all over again. Note to self, next time it might be easier to mark the back of the pieces to tell which way they fit together again.
Next I used the original Beautiful Blooms. I had bought the matching Cuttlebug flower/scalloped circle die to use with it.
And lastly I ran out of flower ideas but then remembered I had some cardstock stickers from K&Company that matched the previous ribbon. There were 2 huge flower stickers so I just went with this smaller one. And a residual swirly piece. This one swirls a little funny, but I was too lazy to cut another piece.
The end, whew! Now to try and figure out what to make next. It's nice to do a mini album that I can actually finish in a somewhat timely fashion (at least for me in my world).

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
