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).

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

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

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
