TGF Heart Journaling--week 22

Hi!  It's week 22 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  The theme this week is music and to create a page based on your favorite song/tune.  Um, okay, I had just made one last week on music too so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this one.  I started going through You Tube and listing all the songs I love and basically I was going to just make a giant list of my favorite songs.  But then OMD's If You Leave from Pretty in Pink just popped into my head and that was my inspiration for my page.  I love that song and the movie because I was such a crazy Andrew McCarthy fan.  But you know the book that the movie is based on doesn't end the same as in the movie?  Talk about disappointed when I read the book after watching the movie.  Like what the heck?!  Andie doesn't live happily ever after with Blane?  Well, back to my page.

I used Miss Anya and My Guy Ian to represent Andie and Blane cause that's the way it should be.  I found some music paper and wrote some of the lyrics to the song and added stickers for the title.  It's a bit light.  I sprayed some shimmer spritz to make the page all sparkle-ly.

I had a journaling partner tonight.  My youngest colored his Ian to "copy" me.  Hehe.  Then he cut and glued some papers and ribbon too.  He was really happy his page got some shiny spritz too.  Oh, and he even tried to distress his pages with my inkpad.  He makes me laugh.  I think he'll like that I posted his page on the computer.

On a side note, he really liked the little abc flashcards I made for him.  Though I think I should include more clear pages so we don't have to keep changing the pages around.  And should use alphabets without serifs.  You should see how he tries to make those finishing lines on the letters too.  It's too funny so I have to tell him to leave those out.  But it's a nice size for his little hands.  He asked me why he couldn't write on the cardstock itself.  Almost had a heart attack.  Um, cause Mommy worked really hard on those so please don't scribble on all the pictures.  I'll see how long that lasts.

Thanks for reading!


Pretty LO, love those bg note papers too.
and the images are just colored up perfectly....

I didn't know the movie was based on a book. Cute layout! Neat sparkles. I like R's layout, cracks me up that he used the bar code scraps. He colors so nicely! It even matches your Ian down to the socks!

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.
