2015 Calendars!

Hello!  Hope everyone's having a great Monday.  I made a whole list of things I wanted to get accomplished this week.  I think I can cross off one thing so far.  There really is not enough time in a day and time goes by so fast that by the time I do the morning chores and eat my lunch, it's time to pick up the children already!  Sometimes I wish we could just come home after school too but most days there are kids' activities or some other commitment.  I am looking forward to Spring Break!

I made more calendars!  And lucky for me that Taylored Expressions is so on it and already has 2015 calendars for sale!  I bought a bunch and plan on making a few more these.  I used Sister Stamps Sheep for this one. 

Here is a larger one, 8.5 x 11 inches.

This one is a half sheet and features Sister Stamps Jade and Moon.

I had made 2 Hello Kitty ones similar to the ones I made before HERE.  The colors were more Spring-y though.  I forgot to photograph them but the good news is that I was able to sell them plus the ones in that post!  Yay!  I have always been on the fence about selling my cards or other projects but this year, that will be one of my goals.  Maybe I'll even do a small craft fair or two?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holy Moly! You are really ahead of the game with your 2015 calendars. I love the way you laid out the numerals in the last one. Perfect images and paper....no wonder they sell! Maybe you should think about putting them out for sale in a locker box at BFC. Some of the sellers are making good side incomes. I think your fine papercraft work would sell very well.
WHOA!!!!! YOU ARE SO "ON IT" Eva. Your calendars are awesome and the washi papers are perfect. Thanks for sharing the site. Gotta check 'em out. :-)

You should not hold back on selling your stuff I know lots of people who love an Eva original. I'm gonna check TE for the calendars and hopefully work on getting ahead. Thanks for enabling and sharing.

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!
