Yuki ornament

Hello!  I feel sometimes scattered wanting to do so many different crafts.  I wish I had this huge crafty room where I had lots of large tables and each table would be designated for a specific craft.  Like sewing, coloring, paper crafting.  Then I wouldn't have to clean up everything to start another project.  Sewing definitely takes up a lot of space with the cutting of fabric, space for the sewing machine and even ironing.  That is the only ironing I am willing to do! 

Anyway, I finished this cute ornament yesterday.  You've probably seen them around blogland ever since PTI introduced their latest kit with the clear domes.  PTI's kits are so enticing with all the fun stuff included in them but they are just too expensive for me especially if I'm not sure I'd be using them often.  But I had seen the clear domes before at my local Ben Franklin store so I knew I could make those ornaments/tags without spending so much money.  Plus the domes come in all different sizes and pretty affordable. 

I colored up Sister Stamps Yuki.  She is one of my favorites!   I used maybe one of the largest ornament domes at the store.  I wanted to be sure that the image would fit nicely.  For the back, I used one of the largest stitched circle dies from Lil Inkers.  I even bought the fake snow from Ben Franklin's too.  These domes come in pairs cause they're supposed to fit together to make a round ornament.  So I have another one that I can play around with.

Here is a side view.  I used Glossy Accents to glue the dome onto the cardstock backing.  Then I added that ribbon all around.  This was a fun and quick craft.  My kids are gonna be making some of these for our annual ornament making tradition.  I bought them smaller ones and they are excited about what they can include in their little dome.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Awwwww, so kawai'i Eva. Yuki is one of my fave SS images too. Totally adorable. Love your ornament a LOT and it'll look great on your tree.

Super cute ornament! I don't think I've been keeping up with PTI. But that's so much smarter to buy your own domes and use your own supplies than paying for the kits!

Such a cute idea....you had your thinking cap on to buy the DIY ornaments to make this. Yuki is adorable and looks like she's ready for Christmas morning!

Wow! You are so clever and how nice of you to mention our store. I am going to head over there soon and get some of the dome ornaments to make some like yours. I have the glass ones to fill but the half plastic ones never appealed to me until now. Thanks for the great idea!

Oh I hear you on having a big craft space. That will always be on my wish list. hahaa!
Ohhhh my goodness Eva!! I am totally going to case this!! This is the cutest ornament! I love that you closed the back, it's like a 2 for 1 deal. So smart! Any Yuki, who is also one of my favorites, is perfect. This is super sweet.

What a cute idea. I like how you can substitute items to make them look like the real deal while saving $. This would look adorable on a Christmas tree!

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!
