Sister Stamps Release #17 -- Reindeer

Hello!  Today is the last day of previews and all of these cuties will be available on Sunday, September 1st.  Do you have a favorite?  I think I am partial to the crane but I love the reindeer too.  But Minoru is a cutie too especially if you have a little boy.

Here is my project featuring the Reindeer image.  I was feeling ambitious and thought I'm gonna put together a December Daily mini book.  Well, here's the cover.  After I cut out pages for the inside, I started thinking how do I know how many pages I might need?  What if I want to share more than one photo for each day?  Although I guess you're trying to limit it to one photo a day?  Anyway, I thought I had too many questions about that so I made the covers and I cut some pages and used some Elle's Studio journaling tags but didn't bind it yet.  I think I will wait til December.  Hopefully I will finish it.  I think that is how the story goes for most of my scrapbooking ideas!

I had lots of fun coloring these images.  Actually, I always have fun coloring Sister Stamps images.  I love to do their hair and they are not so large that there is lots to color.  And if you don't feel like coloring, you can easily paper piece their clothes which is what I did on here.  I love this reindeer.  I made him Rudolph but his red nose is a little hard to see in this photo cause of the glossy accent.

Alright, you know you need to visit these other ladies too right?  Here's the list.

So pretty Eva! I love how you use patterned papers together so they don't compete, but complement each other. So happy to have you as a regular DT member. Thanks for your help with this release!

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.
