TGF Heart Journal--week 15

Hi!  Wow, it's week 15 of TGF's Heart Journaling!  This is the closest I've come to missing the deadline.  I don't know how the days go by so quickly but because school was done earlier and I got sick over the weekend and my daughter is sick too now, I didn't have much time to craft.  Plus it was Halloween too!  I actually had to think what I wanted to create while driving my kids around to school and other activities.  Finally, I had a few minutes to sit down and finish the page.  Good thing the theme for this week is to use a little or a lot of sticky.  So I thought of using stickers and it was quick to stick them onto the page instead of using glue.

Sorry, photo may look kind of dark.  Anyway, this is my tribute to Sanrio and Morning Glory's Blue Bear.  I used my daughter's stash of cute stickers.  The border is My Melody washi tape which I have in 2 other colors as well and cost a small fortune but it's so cute!  My nihongo is a bit rusty so hopefully kawaii is spelled correctly in hiragana.  I found these cute hiragana stamps and thought I could use those to spell arigatoo or something for my kids' Japanese language teachers.  I did end up asking my daughter to double check my hiragana.  She's been taking Japanese since kindergarten now and has learned all of the hiragana chart and working her way through katakana now. 

Thanks for reading and hopefully I'll be able to post more regularly once Lego Robotics is done.  Just another week or so left!

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.
