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!

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…
