Cow are you?


I pulled out my Chameleon pens and colored up this cutie.  I have not gotten them to work right but they still blend beautifully and I love how they look once dry.  The background is made using my Tim Holtz inks.

Growing so big

Today I'm sharing a matching box card and scrapbook lay out.
 Aren't the mums neat?  I love how they look.

For the lay out I chose more rustic colors.
 I love her! Super cute right?

Sunsational Stamps August Stamp release


Hi there! Today is a super fun release for me!  If you've been following my blog then you know we are beginning our homeschooling adventure this school year.
I am so in love with the bookworm that Lisa has drawn us, and really enjoyed all of the images.
So be warned, this is a photo heavy post.



 For my first project, I made a cute shaped card using 2 of the new images.  The bookbag bookworm is the front of the card, and the School Girl Crush I put on the inside.  I typed the sentiment myself and used a font that resembles writing with crayon.

I used the crayon and that same font from the card to make a label for Emily's binder to hold her worksheets.


 I used to get scrapbook kits from Storytellers, I've been hoarding these kits and came across this one and the colors spoke to me so I colored a bunch of the images to match so I can have layouts done before I even take the pictures.  I'm so bad about doing this then taking forever to get the pictures printed, it's my new goal for this year, a mid-year resolution so to speak.  Get photos printed and on pages and in books!

How cute are these?  I am so tickled with how they turned out.  I see lay outs a lot that I think, I could never make those, well, looking at these I feel like "wow! I made this!"




 This apple makes me giggle! I love that face!

I turned a "home" layout into a school lay out, since we are homeschooling! ha! I crack myself up sometimes.


I typed the "kindergarden" on the crayon box using that same crayon font.  Then created a little "garden" below the box.  I then used the back to school from the stamp set and inserted the home piece from the scrapbook kit.  I love how well this all went together.


I requested a ruler and Lisa came through even using my new love with it!  I hung this cork board above Em's desk to attach out pledges and prayers and her work when she wants to display them.  I wanted a header for it so I just printed the image really big and created 2 layers for him in red then yellow paper.
I added crystal effects to his glasses, nose and apple.  I put crystal glitter on his nose and red glitter on the apple.  SO CUTE!!  (gasp)



I created a sign for the door too, I LOVE how this turned out.

And Of course had to make a frame for the Teacher's Pet! (wink, wink)

I think I love this worm too much!! I added the crystal effects to his glasses and nose.  Isn't he cute?



Wiggly Hedgie

 This was a file from Miss Kate's.  I cut him pretty big, this is a 5 by 5 inch card.
Since he's 4 layers, he's pretty heavy and wobbles easily on his own.

If the hat fits




Since I'm not old enough or meet the requirements for the Red Hat society, I changed this file to fit my needs...don't you just love that capability?

Since I have a 5 year old, I printed out the line drawings and used my watercolor pencils to paint them in fun ways.  I found some girly paper and "tada!" perfect page for her silliness!

Here's some close ups of how I painted the hats.

A sweet treat



This month I purchased the image for the monthly challenge from From The Heart Stamps.  I love snowmen so much and for a doubly good reason, the challenge theme for the 12 month Christmas link up is Snowmen too!  So I'll be adding this card to both challenges.

Isn't he sweet?  I love his cute face.  I used crystal effects to adhere the glitter to the snow areas and the embossing powder to his hat and puffs.  I wanted the chunky look of the embossing powder so I did not melt it.
