Metal Bookmarks

Hi!  Wow, so my first PTI blog hop yesterday was fun!  Thanks for all the sweet comments!  There were lots of pretty and amazing tags made by other bloggers.  I tried to check out as many blogs as I could yesterday in between cooking and eating and eating some more.  It's the first time I had to cook a whole Thanksgiving dinner for my family.  And we learned that rubbing a whole stick of butter inside and outside of the turkey really does make it moist.  We cooked it in the bag and it was really simple and yummy.  

I made these little metal bookmarks following Nicole Heady's tutorial.  Some will be Xmas gifts for teachers and some for family.  I think I like the silver one the best.

I used the Book Print Impression Plate before die cutting it with the bookmark topper die for some of these bookmarks.  All the felt is from PTI.  I love PTI felt!  I think I have almost one of every color.

Before I go, I wanted to thank my November OCS partner, Lorraine, for the very pretty card she sent me.  The card was so detailed!  And she even sent me some goodies!  A little holiday planner notepad--I love making these too.  And a small photo album too!  She's a huge PTI fan too. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

What pretty bookmarks! Don't you get tired after just making one??? By the way, how do you stick your felt down? Glue gun or regular glue? Or sewing with the button? Not that I have any PTI felt, but just in case for future reference. Your turkey sounds yummy!

sometimes i sew it together if there's a button or i use sticky tape. i think if you use glue you have to wait a bit for the glue to set and stick. but i'll use glue too. just depends i guess.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
