TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Hello!  I am hosting Farm Fresh Friday!  The theme this week is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!  I just have a whole bunch of stuff that I've saved thinking I will use them one day.  Haha, do you do that too?  I guess it's kind of like my junk drawer but some stuff is just too cute to throw away, you know?  So in that sense I'm a tiny bit of a hoarder.

I made a small card sized 3.75 x 3.75 inches for the reduce part of my challenge.  You don't have to do them all but I thought that would be cute.  I colored up Bright Bean and also used the Wishes from Sparkling Season stamp set.  The birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  Can you guess my reused stuff?  The cardboard is pretty obvious.  I saved it cause it was small and cute.  I inked it up a bit and cut it into a heart shape.  Behind that is a pink netting that I've used before on another card and is the packaging from some rice noodles.  I just cut it up and the color is so pretty!

Here's a close up of Bright Bean.

Hope you'll head over to see what the DT has made.  I love what they have created!  So pretty and cute too!  Hope you'll play along with this challenge!

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.

Sister Stamps Release #29 -- More Boo Boo, Buster & Dixie

Hello!  Welcome back to another day of Sister Stamps projects!  Aren't all of these peeking animals so cute and clever?  And they are so quick to color so it was easy for me to make tons of stuff with these new stamps. 

These bookmarks were actually the first set of projects I made with these stamps.  More animal puns here created with Lawn Fawn's alphabet stamps. 

I made these bookmarks for my 3 kids and they have been using them for a while now.  I had this idea in my head to do a partial die cut to just frame the heads of these animals peeking out.  I also stamped, cut and glued extra paws to go over the heart diecut to give it that extra detail.

So sweet, right?  These bookmarks are extra sturdy.  I used some clear contact paper over the cardstock on both sides so the bookmarks are glossy and hopefully will last longer.

They each have hearts in the sentiments too.

Here is the side view and maybe you can see the gloss of the contact paper.

Oh, magnetic too!  And you can see…
