Sister Stamps Design Team!!!

Hello everyone!  I have exciting news to share as you may have guessed by the title on my post.  This opportunity to design for Sister Stamps came when I was contemplating going back to work and doing less DT stuff.  I thought to myself, is this a sign for me to learn how to say no or is it another positive opportunity?  I guess you know which I picked and really, how do you say no to Sister Stamps?  Love the cute stamps and Jenny is super nice!  Thanks, Jenny for this wonderful opportunity!  And somehow I guess work will eventually fall into place down the road too.  Right?

Anyway, this is Sister Stamps 15th release and soon to be their 2nd birthday.  But for today, I thought I'd share something not birthday-ish but Christmas-y.  Yes, Christmas in June/July!  We have lots of family with dogs even multiple doggie families so these stamps are gonna come in handy at Xmas time.

Here is my project featuring the very sweet looking Kiki.  She looks so calm!  I finally gave in and bought this stocking die from Stampin' Up a while ago to prepare for this Xmas.  I cut some felt out and used fabric glue to seal the edges together.  My fabric glue was kind of old and stuck so when I squeezed just a bit too hard everything oozed out onto my crafty board!  Didn't want to waste the glue so I just used my finger.  Talk about messy!  That isn't really a doggy treat in there either.  It's a cereal bar for humans but it fit nicely.  Hopefully I can find some kind of doggy treat or something.

Here's a close up photo of Kiki on the tag.  I used a mini clothes pin to attach the tag to the stocking.  I also added some color to her cheeks.  Animals need blush too, right?

Please head over to the rest of the Sister Stamps gang to see more inspiration!

Hi Eva! Super cute idea to add Kiki on a tag for your Christmas stocking! Oooh! Just LOVED the way you colored Kiki up...she looks furry! Adding blush to her cheeks makes her look so adorable!
Hi Eva! Love how you attached the adorable tag to the Christmas stocking. I may just borrow your idea of making a Christmas stocking filled with doggie goodies for our 3 pooches. Can't wait to see what you have in store for tomorrow's post.

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.

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!

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.  And th…
