TGF Heart Journal--week 10

Hi!  It's week 10 of TGF's Heart Journal!  Almost half way there!  So this week's assignment was to use some sort of tearing.  The tip was to make an interesting background kind of like a collage which I realize I didn't really do.  Well, mostly cause we don't have any magazines!  I cleaned the house and threw away all the old magazines.  Usually we donate them to the library but they were really old like a year or so!  I guess they were just hiding out in our house somewhere.  Anyway, back to my page.

I wanted to use this penguin stamp so much!  They are so cute!  Wild Rose Studio has a new line of penguin stamps!  He is called Pickle the Penguin.  My daughter loves penguins so much so I had to get some.  This one is called Christmas Cuddles.  I tore up the edges of the snowflake DP and just used some printer paper for the bottom and added a lot of stickles for the glittery-ness. 

Sorry if the glitter is kind of blinding!  So hard to take a good picture with glitter reflecting everywhere.  I just love this image!  And I know I already said it before but they are so cute!

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Soooo cute! Well, I think your previous pages had lots of tearing/collaging, that should make up for it.

Love the sweet penguin images, too! I think all kids love penguins - they are so cute. We used to visit the Kahala hotel to see them when we were younger - do they still have them there?

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

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

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.
