Happy 2016!

Hello!  Oh, it has been a while since I last posted.  December was busy with lots of Christmas activities and crafting.  Then we went on a vacation and I closed up my Etsy store for a couple weeks.  I have been trying to get back into crafting but feel like I need to recover from vacation!  The only thing I really love about traveling is not having to cook or wash dishes.  That was the best!

Here are some projects I didn't get a chance to blog about.

I made this fabric basket for our cousin's baby.  I was happy that the diapers fit so nicely in this basket!

Also made this little tutu.  I switched out the stuffed animal later since the bear belongs to one of our kids.  Just wanted to see the fit.  This was quick and easy to make.

Oh, I also won some cute prizes from Stacey Yacula Studio!  She designs some amazingly cute stuff!  She has a wide range of products for sale too and an Etsy store.

Also won this super cute penguin and was so excited to share it with my penguin loving daughter.  Did I ever share my finished tree skirt on my blog?  Got to use it for the first time this past Christmas. 

I made some simple calendars too for my Etsy store.  I think I only have this maneki neko one left.

I made a simple monkey one too.  I love the adorable little orange/tangerine.

Okay, I am working on something but it's taking me so much longer than I had originally thought and it's driving me a little crazy.  But I don't want to just toss it on the side and move on.  Ugh.  I've been crocheting a little more too ever since I made my daughter a scarf for the trip.  Crocheting is pretty relaxing and I only crochet when I'm waiting in the car for my kids so it takes me a while to finish.  I'm working on another scarf and not sure what I'm gonna do with it yet since it's not like I need one living in Hawaii. 

On a side note, it was cold on our trip and I wore gloves every day.  But it made me wonder about fingerless gloves!  My fingers were so cold and didn't really understand why anyone would want to expose their fingers! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute diaper basket and tutu! And cute prizes! Don't make me look at more cute stuff! Nice calendars too! Yeah, seems a lot colder this year compared to last year! I keep thinking we can donate our cold weather things but years like this, I'm glad I kept them!

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
