All That Scraps October Review

Hi!  Today All That Scraps is reviewing Mashi's Muffins!  These stamps always look fun and happy!

Here is my card featuring Elfen.  Love her big, bright smile so I had to go with that particular sentiment which is from Fanciful Christmas.  The little tree is a die cut.  Isn't it cute?

I'm not sure but my colors may be off on this monitor.  I haven't adjusted the colors since switching out my monitor so I think my photos look a bit darker than usual.  Yes?  No?

Anyway, I washed the car this morning and I'm tired.  I realize that it is so much better to go to the car wash or let my hubby wash the car.  For one thing, the car is too big for me to wash.  I can't reach the roof even with a ladder so there are spots down the middle of our car roof.  And the tires are a big pain too.  I don't want to make the rims shiny like my hubby does.  And now my fingernails are yucky too.  But today I promised not to be so lazy like yesterday.  I didn't prep dinner or wash the dishes or prep the kiddies' lunches so I really had a ton of stuff to do once the kids got home and we had a late dinner.  So I guess I better get on it and go wash the dishes and prep some dinner.  How do you get your fingernails clean after washing the car?  Hope I don't get yucky stuff into our dinner!

Oh, and be sure to hop over to the ATS blog for more Mashi's Muffins!

Thanks for reading!

So cute! yeah, she looks really happy and bright. I had the same problem with reaching the roof, I only tried a step stool, the ladder looked too painful to take out! I can't believe you tried that. Plus the water dries so fast if you're in the hot sun, can't help but leave water spots. Costco here has a drive through car wash now. I think you need some kind of degreaser. I tried to use a brush instead of a sponge on the rims, that seems a little cleaner for my hands, even if the rims don't get as clean. I figure they're going to get dirty soon driving around again anyhow.
Super cute card Eva! love the Christmasy colors - so well done!
Aw looks like your all pooped out!
Today is my day to do my car, it's a bit challenging but since I drive it hubby says I have to take some responsibility in up keeping her.
Enjoy your hump day!

You're funny! I am the worst about getting my car washed. The inside is spic and span, but it could use a little scrubbing on the outside.

Very cute card! I do love that tree die, it's perfect! I almost feel like she may rip little Gingy's arm off though! lol! Awesome job!

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.
