TGF Heart Journaling--week 16

Hi!  Gee, I can't believe the week has flown by already and here I am trying to post my entry for TGF's Heart Journaling almost at the last minute again.  I thought about quitting but I'm already more than half way there so I got myself to hurry up and make the page I wanted to.  This week is to use hearts so I thought that should be relatively easy.  But I didn't really know what to do with the hearts.  Then I remembered this tutorial by Jessica Witty (see HERE) where she made a heart garland from crepe paper using a heart die.  So I thought I'd finally try that.

But instead of crepe paper, I used tissue paper with my heart dies from MFT.  I also stamped some hearts from TGF.  The quote is one of my favorites and I love jewelry that has these little inspirational quotes.  I don't usually by them for myself though.  I think they make great presents especially for graduation.

Alright, that is it.  This Saturday is our Lego Robotics qualifiers.  I still have last minute photos to develop and some other stuff to complete.  But I'm sick again and so is my youngest.  The cold my daughter had is finally making its way through our house.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Neat heart garlands! You can finish the heart journaling! Can't be that many more weeks, right? I wonder if people can keep up through the holidays. Good luck at Lego! So much work for all of you. Crossing my fingers that we all don't catch anything more out here, I think we've had our share of germs from August through October.

Cool tissue paper journaling, Eva! And Lego Robotics sounds like a lot of work, lol. But I shouldn't laugh - my son loves Legos - so I might be in the same boat - hahaha. Hope you and your little one are feeling better soon!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
