All That Scraps March Review

Hello!  Hope everyone's having a wonderful week!  I have a cute set of cards to share today.  They are a new line of stamps from CC Designs called The Tumbleweeds.  I love how happy and cute these little girls look.

Aren't they cute?  I really couldn't decide which one to color up first so I just chose them all.  I paired each of the girls with a sentiment from Amy R Winged Greetings.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white.  The butterfly is included with the set.

All the papers are from Doodlebug's Flowerbox. 

I think this girl is my favorite. 

I love that she's chasing that butterfly.

Hope you'll have a chance to check out the rest of the review over at All That Scraps blog.

I had a chance the other week to get my hair cut finally.  It was so relaxing!  I love when my hair stylist shampoos my hair and then some assistant comes over and massages my hands.  I could totally fall asleep there.  But I am not that into the shoulder massages.  It's actually kind of sore to me and sometimes makes me giggle too.  But after the appointment it's back to the reality of cooking and cleaning.  It's like an endless cycle of chores. 

Oh, I also finally watched the first couple of episodes of Once Upon a Time.  I need more shows to watch while on the elliptical.  Anything else good to watch these days?

Thanks for reading!

What a cute set of cards! Cute paper and hairdos. I should try to make something, such a slug though. Ha! I spend Mondays catching up on my TV shows! Actually I only watch Once Upon a Time and Revenge nowadays. Maybe some old series, like Lost, although that was just getting a little too convoluted. Or Glee, but so many new characters nowadays. Or maybe some old shows, I used to watch Alias, Gilmore Girls, 24 (although it kept going on and on for so many seasons, I think I only saw the first 2 or 3). Oh and a surprising one that I didn't think I would like was Band of Brothers. Have fun exercising!

These are adorable, Eva! Love the clean layout, and the bright colors! So fun!!
I love how all three turned out Eva. I can see why you had a hard time deciding which to start with.

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
