Welcome baby

Hi!  Seems like I've been making lots of baby and wedding cards lately.  I made this card for the Fabulous Felt Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (there's still time to play, challenge ends September 5th!) and for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday--Button it up!

I used some of the clothes from TGF's Wardrobe sets.  I stamped them onto some PTI felt and cut them out.  I added some tiny buttons (click to enlarge photo) onto the clothes.  I also added some die cut buttons (from PTI) with twine and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I finally also bought a grass die from My Favorite Things.  It's so much easier than cutting grass out with scissors.  I layered 2 rows of grass.

Pretty simple but it actually took me some time to pick papers!  I think sometimes I tend to over think things.  I need to follow the KISS motto. 

I still need to get into a routine now that all 3 kids are in school.  But mostly I think I need to stop feeling guilty that I get to stay home.  Maybe that is why I don't spend all my time crafting and doing something fun.  Most of this week I've been cleaning and organizing our house and spending maybe an hour devoted to crafting before I head out to pick up all the kids.  I guess moms feel guilty no matter what we choose to do though.

Thanks for reading!

The tiny clothes are soooo cute! What cute tiny buttons. Neat grass. I know, I feel like I should be more productive on my days off. But I think of it more like resting before the kids come home, because that's when the real work begins!
Adorable card! Like how you finished the clothes line off on each side.

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…

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…
