Sister Stamps Release #16 -- Octopus Set

Hi!  It's the last day before these Sister Stamps cuties will be available for purchase.  All of these little sea creatures are so adorable, I can't even pick a favorite.  Every time I think the turtles are my favorite but then those dolphins are pretty darn cute too and the octopus is so squishable.

Ever since I made a door hanger for my daughter, my boys have been wanting one too.  Since they share a room I only had to make one for them.  Hehe.  They like these little guys so I gesso-d up this wooden door hanger and painted it blue.  Then I thought it would be fun to put this white board self-adhesive sheet on it so they can write messages like no girls except mommy.  Right now it actually says welcome!  I was shocked.

Here's a close up of the starfish and octopus.  I added a no heat lamination sheet around them and the puffer fish in case they get some dry erase marker on them.

Here is the cute puffer fish.

I wanted to share my youngest one's card that he made for his brother's birthday.  He looks forward to creating cards with the new images.  The other day he had mentioned something that I thought was really funny.  He asked me if he could have my Copic pens when I was gone.  I didn't know what he meant so I said if I'm going somewhere I might take my pens with me.  I said when he grows up he can buy his own pens.  And then he said no when you're gone.  I'm like where am I going?  He just casually said you know, like when you're dead!  Geez, I guess he's calling dibs on my Copics!  I better put that in my will.

Awww...this has got to be the cutest little door hanger ever. Thanks for sharing all the details for creating this! Your idea of using a dry erase board for this is terrific...and laminating the images so they'll wipe clean... what a quick thinking creative mommy you are!

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!
