2015 Calendars!

Hello!  Hope everyone's having a great Monday.  I made a whole list of things I wanted to get accomplished this week.  I think I can cross off one thing so far.  There really is not enough time in a day and time goes by so fast that by the time I do the morning chores and eat my lunch, it's time to pick up the children already!  Sometimes I wish we could just come home after school too but most days there are kids' activities or some other commitment.  I am looking forward to Spring Break!

I made more calendars!  And lucky for me that Taylored Expressions is so on it and already has 2015 calendars for sale!  I bought a bunch and plan on making a few more these.  I used Sister Stamps Sheep for this one. 

Here is a larger one, 8.5 x 11 inches.

This one is a half sheet and features Sister Stamps Jade and Moon.

I had made 2 Hello Kitty ones similar to the ones I made before HERE.  The colors were more Spring-y though.  I forgot to photograph them but the good news is that I was able to sell them plus the ones in that post!  Yay!  I have always been on the fence about selling my cards or other projects but this year, that will be one of my goals.  Maybe I'll even do a small craft fair or two?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holy Moly! You are really ahead of the game with your 2015 calendars. I love the way you laid out the numerals in the last one. Perfect images and paper....no wonder they sell! Maybe you should think about putting them out for sale in a locker box at BFC. Some of the sellers are making good side incomes. I think your fine papercraft work would sell very well.
WHOA!!!!! YOU ARE SO "ON IT" Eva. Your calendars are awesome and the washi papers are perfect. Thanks for sharing the site. Gotta check 'em out. :-)

You should not hold back on selling your stuff I know lots of people who love an Eva original. I'm gonna check TE for the calendars and hopefully work on getting ahead. Thanks for enabling and sharing.
PS - I feel like I lost more time & energy with the time change.. No bueno. Hahaha

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.
