penguin tags and craft fair reminder

Hello!  Yesterday I finished making up 30 penguin tags for the upcoming craft fair I'll be at.  Seems like there is never enough time to make everything you want to make, right?  I guess it's partly because I want to make everything!  I am trying to cut back on that!  I still have lots to pack up and inventory.  I think that might be my least favorite part of this whole venture.  All the paper work and keeping track of everything makes my brain hurt.  But I want to start so I am not rushing at the last minute.

These cute penguins are from Mama Elephant.  But the speech bubble, to and heart is from Lawn Fawn.  I did some masking to place the penguin's Santa hat and then to place him onto the floating iceberg.

Here is another penguin.  He looks a bit wobbly.

Then the last penguin who is on his behind.  These are so cute to add to gifts.  I'll be packing them in sets of 5 for the fair.

The Moanalua 99 Craft Fair is on Sunday, September 20th from 10 am to 3 pm.  Hope you can make it!  My Etsy store will be closed, I think possibly from tonight until a couple days after the fair so I can update my listings.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just adorable...makes me want to get a penguin or two. Best of luck at the craft fair!
These are cute Eva- great job on those penguin tags....
I myself have been crafting like crazy, I was blessed to have several people asked me to make a bunch of projects for their craft fairs too! Unfortunately
I was not asked to publish them in anyway because of their personal reasons. The Big Island is not like Oahu where you have thousands of people so no one really cares what you do. But here, everyone wants to be better than the next and it's so sad that they are people out there that are like that....You'll do great that's for sure....Take care ~ and good luck!

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…
