What do you see?

Hi!  I decided to make another little project for TGF's SCS Chit Chat Night.  You can view the challenge details HERE.  My inspiration is another children's book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle.  It was one of my favorites to use for speech therapy.  The kids loved it and it was so easy to take the same concepts and expand on it so parents could help their kids too.  I remember I had a whole bunch of these animals printed out and laminated for the kids to play with.  Now, my youngest really loves this book too.  He likes the whole series of them.

So I decided to make a little board book.  It's been a while since I made a little book like this.  I tried to keep it relatively simple.

This is the cover.  I used TGF's Oh Boy Ian since I knew my son would want it after I was done making it.  The cover measures 3x3 inches.  The title was made with rub on letters.

My brown bear is from TGF's Oh Baby set.  I printed all the pages out.  The images are all just stamped onto the page and colored with Copics.

I changed some of the animals but the colors are the same.  This little piggy is from McSplendid Farm.

The duck is from Build a Onesie (girl) clear stamp set.

I like this blue horse the best!  Also from McSplendid Farm.

Not loving the froggy's coloring too much.  Some how my greens got a bit mixed up.  He is from Down By the Pond.

The purple cat is from Ginger Bell stamp set.

The white hen is also from McSplendid Farm.

Do cows have horns?  Is this a bull?  Oh well.  I'm calling it a cow and I was running out of ink in my grays so had to use my black pencil to kind of fill in the rest.  S/he is also from McSplendid Farm.

The goldfish is from Down By the Pond.

My last page is of Teacher Anya. 

I also rounded the corners of the book.  I used tape to attach my pages instead of glue like I've done before.  My kids loved it and of course my youngest claimed it as his.  And I like how cute it turned out especially since it's small for a child to hold.

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!

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…
