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 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. :-)

Aiyee!! Way to put the rest of us on high alert! Haha! These are all fantastik Eva! Love how you used Moon & Jade. 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.
PS - I feel like I lost more time & energy with the time change.. No bueno. Hahaha

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
