more sequins!

Hello!  So sorry, I am not very good with blogging these days.  I spent about 2 weeks sewing 8 tote bags in 3 different sizes.  Two more tote bags to go.  I also sewed up 6 pot holders and 4 fabric wine bags.  Lots to share but not today.  Ha, I'm not ready yet. 

The only thing I can share today is the sequins I just got and sorted.  Yes, I sort the sequins!  It's pretty time consuming and also gives me a sore back and shoulder.  But I don't want to pack up those tiny broken bits that are floating in the package and I try to pick out the deformed ones.

These are super tiny 3 mm flower shaped sequins.  Or confetti or glitter or whatever you'd like to call them.  They are so cute.

I just listed them in my etsy store.

Oh, did I blog about this one?  I love these too.  They are super tiny about 1 mm.  They are tiny little beads you can also mix into your shaker cards with sequins.  Or use them in resin crafts.  I think some people even put these on their nails!

I have other items to list as well.  I got my next batch of clothespins in white, pink and blue.  Just need to photo and list.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Next time I will share my potholders/wine bags.

Your eye sight must be really good. Wow..customer's sure can expect quality from you!!! Much success on Etsy :)
OMG, you sorted all of those itty bitty sequins??? You are so patient. Both sequins and beads would look great in any shaker card. Can't wait to see your potholders and wine bags. Have a happy and crafty week.

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…
