Halloween Treats

Hi!  Thought I'd take a little break from Lego and post some Halloween treats I made for some of my kids' teachers. 

I used PTI's Favor it box 6 die and the coordinating Halloween Treats and Sweets stamp set and dies.  I have to admit that this is the set that broke my PTI boycott.  Hehe.  I was doing so well not purchasing from them every month but when I saw this set I really wanted it.  Sooo cute!  Though the box is a bit small I think for stuffing with candy for the kids. 

So for all of these, I used cardstock for the boxes and just used felt for the front to conserve (or hoard) my felt.  Plus I think the card stock makes it a bit sturdier.  Nichole had a project using all felt but after I cut an entire one out of felt, it didn't look like it could keep it's shape nicely.  I stitched some of the features on the cat.  And look more googly eyes!

Here's a spider and skeleton.  A mini hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works fit in the boxes nicely.  The spider is holding 3 small packages of jelly beans.  See, can't hold much candy.  Well, from a kid's point of view, anyway. 

I'll be entering this in Wee Memories Challenge -- Free for all

I miss stamping and coloring. :(  Still 3 more weeks of Lego practice and prep to go.  I will share the favors and whatnot when I'm done with them.  I think they will turn out cute!

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

Such cute projects, Eva! Love how each character is a bit different from one another but still similar! Can't wait to see more projects! I know how you feel about wishing you could craft more. I'm due to go back to work soon after my maternity leave, and I'm not looking forward to less crafty time.
These are so adorable Eva~
Great treat holders and each character is just to, to cute......great project idea....
Have another crafty day!

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…

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!

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!
