Hello Kitty Monthly Planner

Hi everyone!  Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  I can imagine it will be getting a bit crazy from here on out.  I still have a few things to get on my list and then it's wrapping everything that will take a bit of time.

Today I have the rest of my monthly planners that I finished up to share.

These are large planners that I made pretty with some washi paper.  So usually I would try to make them all different by using different washi papers but it is so much easier just to make them all the same!  Plus I really like this pink washi paper.  I added Hello Kitty made from a Sizzix die and the year made from PTI numbers die.

This is the back.  The front piece overlaps to the back if you can see it.

Here is a different one I made since I ran out of the pretty pink washi paper.  I like this one too. 

This is a sample of the inside pages.  They all have vinyl covers too.

The past couple days I've been doing some sewing.  My intention was to start this project in the beginning of November but some how the days just flew by and only now did I get to it.  It is probably my biggest sewing project!

Here's a little glimpse of it.  I have to say I am really proud of how far I've gotten with sewing this.  If I had the rest of the materials I could finish it but I haven't been able to get to Walmart to get more fabric.  Gotta love these Doodlebug fabrics!  In any case, can you guess what I'm making?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I put a small dent in my Christmas shopping. Got tons more to work on. Oi-vay not looking forward to that. Ohhh! Such cute HK planners, the paper and the HK really add that nice touch. Love the gold numbers too. Terrific!
Ohhhhhh!!! That looks awemazing Eva!! I wonder if our Wal-Mart has any Doodlebug material? Will have to check. You are not only a wiz at cardmaking, your a wiz with the sewing machine. Crafter extraordinaire. I'm guess it's going to be spectacular! ;)
These planners looks great and I'm sure they will come in good use....
I spy a Christmas tree skirt. Looks great!
You are on a roll Eva. The planners are awesome. And you are one heck of a seamstress. I'm impressed.

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!

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…

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…
