Hello! I have a little bit of this and that to share today. Thought I'd jam everything into one post in case I don't get a chance to share them later.
Here are some of the Mama Elephant reindeer shaker tags I made. I sold some at the last fair but I should've take a photo of all 24 together before selling them! I think these are about the cutest reindeer ever. If only I can get my hands on the dies soon, I can make more projects with these.
Here is another set of tags. I added red stars in some shakers and then green stars in others. I think the green stars were more popular and sold better. Did you see that Mama Elephant is releasing a new stamp set with the Chinese zodiac animals? The set is so cute and I can't wait to get those.
I made some graduation cards too using Sister Stamps Graduate stamp.
Green is the school color of the university here.
And lastly, I made this necklace the other day with the symbol/kanji for beautiful. This one is already spoken for. I've been selling some sterling silver jewelry mostly at fairs but I am wanting to add jewelry back into my Etsy store.
I also stamped some initials. These would look cute on the chain as well. I stamped these for my daughter's friends but they will be hanging on some bracelets instead. Cute and simple Christmas presents. I'm also waiting on some metal bookmark and keychain supplies and hopefully I'll have those at the next fair as well. Seems like my crafty to do list is getting longer.
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.
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.
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!
