TGF Heart Journal--week 6

Hi!  Wow, it's time for week 6 of TGF's Heart Journal!  This week is Text Me!--using lots of text and the tip is to cut up pages from old books or children's books.  Now I can't bring myself to cut up books even if it may be an old one cause it's a book!  So we used stamps for this assignment instead.

My daughter's fun and colorful page!  She used Crayola paints and I love the color combo even though she didn't really know what she wanted to do.  She actually did some finger painting too after she saw me do that on my layout.  She waited for the paint to dry and then stamped some sentiments from Paper Smooches.

My layout.  Truthfully, I never know what I'm doing when I start doing the assignment each week.  I kind of just wing it, I suppose.  I used watercolors and didn't want to use blue or green so started with red then some yellow and orange and added white too.  I had the bubble wrap still on my table so added that too.  Then used my much neglected PTI stamp sets for the rest.  It looks kind of Asian inspired though that's not what I had set out to do.  But it seems to work.  Oh, and I stamped one of the text scripts on the right upside down but I guess it's not that noticeable.

We're having fun doing these assignments, and every week we look forward to finding out what our next assignment is. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

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…
