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.

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.

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…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
