Anyways this time I wanted to try a hedgehog. I played around with some ideas until I finally figured out I could use the antler die (within the set) to use for the Hedgie’s spines, that’s the spiky part.
So first I took the main body trimmed the ears so they weren’t so pointy. Then I die cut a bunch of spines. Using a piece of copy paper I traced the body, so I could lay out the spines around the outer side of the body just to gage how many spines I would need. I then used liquid glue so I would have some wiggle room to move the spines around.
Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here but I’ve been sick off and on this winter. Now I’ve been trying to get my creative mojo back!
Anyways today I am excited to share a new project with you. I am using Lawn Fawn products from their winter release, Woodland Critter Huggers (dies) and a few other dies as well. This is a versatile set! They have all the critters they came up with on their website but when I saw this die set, an idea snuck up and I wondered if I could pull it off.
My daughter is a big fan of My Little Pony and was excited to see the new movie. So, I thought I would just try to figure out a way to make this critter die set into the ponies…
Once complete, I added the pony’s cutie mark to the front of the banner or to the pony. I also, added other embellishments such as sequins and used the Spectrum Shimmer Clear marker. I added a ribbon to put them all together they look like they are holding hooves! Anyways in case you didn’t know who is who, from left to right:
Apple Jack (Yellow Orange, Cowgirl Earth Pony)
Pinkie Pie (Pink, Happily hyper/party throwing Earth Pony) – This is totally my daughter!
Rainbow Dash (Blue, Sporty Pegasus)
Twilight Sparkle (Purple, Princess Alicorn)
Rarity (White, Fashionista Unicorn)
Fluttershy (Yellow, Shy nature loving Pegasus)
Anyways I think I pulled it off! I hope you like them! Let me know what you think. Who’s your favorite My Little Pony?
I wanted to share a project I made for the Lawn Fawn Challenge #17. This was definitely a fun challenge and just the reason I needed to get into the Christmas spirit! I can’t even believe it’s almost here!
We plan on getting our Christmas tree tomorrow! It’s been our Family Christmas Tradition to go out to the Christmas tree farm and hunt for the “perfect” tree. Now that we all have families, we take our kids along and they help find the “one”. Then we chop it down and bring it home to be loved and decorated for Christmas! I hope the Lorax won’t be mad, it is for Christmas after all! We usually have a lot of snow by now but we don’t have any yet so that will be a little weird.
Anyways my plan is to hang each number on the tree for my kiddos to find. I’m pretty sure they will be delighted!
Go easy on me, this is my first ever blog post on my first ever website (that I’ve been working on for a long time!). I’ve also, just released my first ever font, it’s a playful font trio called, The Animal Crackers. It showcases uppercase letters, script letters, and symbols.
Anyways I thought I’d share a few projects with you on fun ideas on how you can use this font.
My first idea was to create lunch box notes for my kids using my symbols font, the symbols are almost all animal characters. If you are following along and you don’t have kids, you can make this for adults too! I created a template, typed out an animal and then put a fun sentiment with it, then I printed it out on cardstock.
I made the template so you could just use scissors or a paper cutter to cut them out with enough space so you could fold it over to make the little notecard. When you print it out the squares should measure 2″x2″. I made sure the ink was dry, then colored the little animals in with my Copic markers but you could use any type of medium, or just let the recipient color it. Now, I have a handful of sweet, notes to give to my kids for their lunches and/or if they are having a bad day! Sometimes our littles need to know we do care about them too! My youngest already saw these and has claimed some of them!
As a gift to you, in honor of my new website and font release, I’m offering the lunchbox notes template as a freebie so you can print some out and give to your kids/loved ones. I’ve also, included a blank template for you to create your own notes. I hope you enjoy! Kid’s Lunchbox Notecard Template
Take Care and thanks so much for stopping in! I hope you will stop in again to see more of my projects!
