Heart Journaling with TGF

Hi!  I signed up for TGF's heart journaling class.  We were to get a journal and decorate the cover too.  So while we were shopping at Target one day, I found this really inexpensive marker/paint pad for kids.  It was pretty large so I ended up cutting the pages in half and making 2 journals, one for me and the other for my daughter who wants to play along as well.  Our journal covers were on TGF's blog today and my daughter was excited about that!

My daughter's Hello Kitty art journal which I bound with my Cinch.  She used tear-shaped ink pads to make the hearts after she saw that I had made flowers with them too.

My journal featuring TGF's Blush Bonnie.  I chose these colors after I saw the papers from Echo Park's Be Mine set. 

I used the ink pad to make flowers, reminds me of plumerias.  I also used TGF's Splotchy and the hearts, and PTI's Butterfly Dreams.  I made this journal first and I liked the colors a lot so that inspired me to make my ATCs

A close up of Bonnie.  I rubbed some shimmery chalk over some areas too.

Spritz some glitter on there too.

I also wanted to share my youngest one's art work.  He loves to craft so much.  This is his house.  I was impressed with his polka dot door and his triangle roof.  He also made a card and tag set which I'll share later. 

Our first assignment for the art journal is to use the concept of wings.  Not quite sure what I'll be doing yet.  Although pretty much anything goes when it comes to art journaling. 

Thanks for reading!

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…
