Stick Pins in Tins

Hi!  Hmmm, seems like a while since I've posted anything.  But I have been crafting.  With Mother's Day coming up, I thought I'd put together some simple gifts for some crafty friends.  I was wanting to package up some cute stick pins that I had bought a while ago and got inspired to do so HERE.  I made mine a bit differently since I also wanted to place them in tins.

Floral stick pins.  The pins are stuck into fun foam on the bottom which you can't see from this view.

Leaf stick pins.  I should have had my hubby take side view photos too so you can see that they are not just flat.  They stick out about a quarter of an inch.

Heart stick pins.  All the pins are from Maya Road which I purchased online from Eclectic Paperie.

I made 3 sets.  It was fast after I made the first set.

3 fit nicely in one tin.  I recycled these tins which held paper flowers before.

Do you notice the odd ball?  My hubby always has one not matching the others.  I added some ribbon (recycled from my kids' Easter treats--good thing I have 3 kids) and also used PTI's Tiny Tags (3 on each tin) tied with twine.

If you have any questions on how I made these, just leave me a comment.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a great week!

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…
