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!

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!
