CC Designs December Review --Snowman Flakes

Hello!  This will be a quick post as I am trying to finish up a whole lot of last minute things.  Where exactly does time go?  Though I guess I did a lot of procrastinating too!

It's December review time over at CC Designs.  Here is my snowflake ornament featuring Snow Flakes.  I actually bought a foam activity kit for kids from Walmart to make these snowflakes.  It was such a great deal and my youngest will be making his own along with his classmates on the last day of school.  Theirs will be a little different in that they will use their photo for the center of their snowflakes.  But I made this as kind of a sample for them and as something to hang on our tree too.  I tied on a tag and a little snowman button too.


Here's a close up of him.  He is so fast to color up.  You could make a lot of fast Xmas projects with this guy.

That's it for now.  Hope you are all getting your shopping done.  I think I am but now there is a lot of wrapping to do.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

That's a cute snowflake ornament and I'm sure your son's class will love making their own. Every snowflake will be unique like every child. May your Christmas be glittery and 2014 be full of creativity.

I am always passing those do it yourself boxes over each time I go to Michael's never thinking how fun it would be to do something like this. Especially to distract the kids. hehe.
TFS!

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!

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…

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…
