Sister Stamps Release #20 -- Minako

Hello!  Sister Stamps is back from the holiday break with their 20th release which will be available Saturday, February 1st.  Now, have you been checking out Jenny's introductory posts about each of these new images?  If not, you should because she's got prizes!  These new images are so versatile and perfect for any occasion cards and projects. 

Here is Minako.  Sweet, isn't she?  I love her serene and peaceful pose and smile.  I had to add a little bird friend from Misaki.  They are having a conversation.  This is a little box from La-La Land Crafts that you can decorate however you like.  I wanted to create a gold box since I'm kind of fixated on that gold paper.  Isn't it amazing when you emboss it too?  I love that floral embossing on the bottom.  The corner dies are also from La-La Land Crafts.  I didn't add a sentiment to this because I didn't think it needed one.  But it would be great for Girl's Day or Valentine's or a birthday too.

Here is a side view.

Inside of the box.  I added gold to all the sides of the inner box.  You can see the reflection of the washi paper on the inside.

Please check out more previews from the Sister Stamps DT.

Before I go, I just wanted to say how stinkin' cold and windy it is here!  Typing again with gloves and socks and even wore jeans that I usually only wear when it's cold.  But at least the sun is shining today, not like yesterday when it was totally gloomy all day.  Hopefully it passes soon so we can get our normal weather back.

I'll be back tomorrow and thanks for stopping by today!

This is so pretty, Eva! Minako is so cute on this little box. I'm loving all the gold too! Love the sakura embossed gold accents on the box cover and wow, you did a fabulous job of adding the gold to the sides of the box. Super neat how the gold paper reflects the pretty washi paper to the inside!

Wow, pretty box! Love the super shiny gold! And cute scene! I shouldn't complain that it's warmer than usual here, but my allergies have been really bad these last 1-2 months! Yeah, bundle up! We're a little cheap about the heat and wear a lot of layers!

Eva, I never would have guessed that you added the gold paper to the box - it's perfect! It looks like you had bought a gold box.
Such a cute project ... love the pretty pink paper that you used, too. Thanks for sharing!
Sure love the color of Minako's hair and nice highlights. This would make a really nice gift and all the gold adds a really classy touch.

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!

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…
