TGF Heart Journal--week 7

Hi!  It's week 7 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  I'm almost late with this one since I was doing my countdown calendar, and I didn't have much time over the weekend to work on my layout.  My daughter did hers early but I just finished mine last night.  The concept for this week is to use clouds and the tip to use materials we can find around our home. 

My daughter's layout.  She always makes bright colored layouts.  She used the piggy from TGF's Fly Away set and the butterflies from PTI's Butterfly Dreams.  She painted the background with watercolors and used metallic pencils for the images.

My layout.  Kept it kind of simple this week.  I sponged my blue ink pad over the page for the background.  I used chipboard that I taped with washi tape and then die cut the clouds out using PTI's clouds dies.  I cut some clouds from doilies too and lay them over the washi tape ones.  I made a mistake on one of the clouds in my rush to finish.  I stamped the hot air balloon from the same set my daughter used and colored with metallic pencils also.  Not sure I love this one.  Definitely need to set aside more time to complete the layouts.

Thanks for reading!

Congrats! I'm so out of it this week, I don't even know what's going on in blog world. I was trying to comment yesterday morning on here, but internet explorer seems to mess up blogger, like it won't let you log on. Now I'm on Google chrome and it seems to work better. Anyhow, cute clouds! I like H's bright blue sky! Neat metallic pencil coloring! You mean the one lone lacey cloud facing the other way? I actually didn't notice it at first, now I can't stop looking at it! But so cute! Like the washi tape clouds.

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…
