more metal bookmarks!

Hello!  I did some cleaning up of my blog just now.  More tabs and less stuff on my sidebar.  Looks cleaner!

Today I have more metal bookmarks to share.  I made a couple to give as gifts, one for my daughter's English teacher and one for a friend's daughter who loves to read.  The third one was kind of a mistake but I like the way it turned out anyway.

These are the three I made.  I also made a couple of pom poms in school colors to go with the bookmarks.  The one in the middle is the whoops one.  I thought I was stamping an apple at the top but I had the moon instead!  So I went ahead and stamped the whole thing out anyway.  I'll have to think about who I can gift it to.

Here's a close up of the moon quote.  I love the stars!

Here is the one for my friend's daughter.  It's the Dr. Seuss quote about reading and learning.  I also stamped out her name on the bottom but then blurred it for this post.  I love that these can be so personalized!

Here's the one for my daughter's teacher.  The apple is not centered, darn it!  But oh well.  This is personalized with the teacher's name on the bottom.  Stamping these makes me so nervous because I don't want to make a mistake!  Metal blanks are a lot more expensive than cardstock!  But I think I am getting better and more consistent.  I have to just hammer evenly!

I felt really unfocused today during my crafty time.  I really do feel like there are a million things going on in my brain.  Hopefully tomorrow I can concentrate and get things done.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

These turned out TOTALLY AWESOME Eva. They are ALL PERFECT to me. You're on a roll with these bookmarks. BTW, the pom pom looks like Waipahu High colors.
Boy, it's super windy outside. Time to turn off the computer.

Oh wow Eva!
These are all so cool! I can't see any mistakes on the oopsie one, that's actually cute.
They have a nice charm to them, even the one with the off-center apple. I think it's sweet. They will have it for years to come. Great job!

All three of these bookmarks are going to be treasured. The sentiment/guotes are perfect for each intended person. Such awesome gifts.

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!
