Sister Stamps Release #21 -- Kimie, Jade & Moon

Hello!  Back with my last project showcasing Sister Stamps Release #21

I made another project using all 3 images.  I think the images work so well together that sometimes it's hard to just focus on one.  They all look so cute together! 

So this is a bit different for me.  But I had this empty metal cookie container and it was so nice that I couldn't just throw it away.  I washed it out and wondered what I would do with it.  I liked that is was metal meaning magnets would stick on it and I recently got these cute magnets from Jenny that I wanted to display on here.  Sorry, did not photo the magnets actually on here.  They are totally cute though!  And I love looking at them.  Anyway, I had my hubby use some white metal primer to paint the can a couple of coats so that when I wrapped the thin washi paper around it, the bright words wouldn't show through.  Glad he likes to do stuff like that so I can keep my hands clean.  After, I wrapped the washi paper around but it was like an inch short to cover completely so I added some flowers in that space to cover it up.  This is one side of the can and you can see Jade on there.

This is the other side of the flowers and you can see Moon hopping on there.  The funny thing is that I wanted to add the word Create on the can but it was a bit too long especially with these big glitter chipboard letters I've had for a while.  So I just put my name!  Short and to the point.  It's my can after all and it'll sit on my desk.  I added some rhinestones to the flowers and some metal charms that the Yumi & Fumi girls were nice enough to send me.  Oh, and I wrapped the top and bottom of the can with some lace ribbon and mesh bling.

And here is Kimie all the way on the other side.  I added some pearl blingy things too.  Most of the space here is filled with the cute magnets I mentioned earlier.  After I made all this, my hubby thought it was a bit too busy for his taste.  Well, that's why it has my name on it and not his!

Please check out the DT too!

Great recycled tin project. Love the washi paper and how you decorated it with the SS images. Nice embellishments especially the lace trim. Thanks for the beautiful idea.

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!

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!
