3-D Daisy in the Dog House!

OMG! I cannot even tell you how FUN this card was to do! LOL!

I have NEVER done anything like it before.

I told you that I wanted to make a special card for Kathie, for the Daisy book she made me –>HERE

I wanted it to be as special, and as awesome as her book. OK so it won’t be AS awesome as her book, but still  heartfelt, and a thought out thank you, so I hope she likes it.

I wanted to do another “shaped” card. But didn’t want to duplicate my Hydrant, and I did do a Dog Bone shaped one a while ago, that got published.

Here it is-

BUT, I struggled, cause I wanted to give her something with a photo of Daisy.

Plus I am HUGE on making every card SPECIAL!

Then the LIGHT BULB went off!

I took a photo of Daisy that I felt could be cut up, and made 3D! I printed off 4 of the same photo. It was a 4×6 size. I then began cutting and layering her head! She is just as cute in a 3D photo! LOL! It made it POP out at you like she was right there.

I originally had her standing-like in the photo. Then I thought, how cool it would be for her to be sitting in a dog house?

So I got my coluzzel and cut a 1/2 oval using Bazzil textured cardstock. I had layered the colluzzel over her head to figure the correct size.

Then onto the roof.

The bone and sentiment are from Puppy Love by CTMH (I swear I LOVE that set SOOOO much-same set used for the hydrant card).

It came together relatively fast. About 45 minutes. Not too bad.

Doodlebug paperfrills were used on the roof-and for the grass.

I think it is SO cute!

Jason said it needed MORE. HELLO! Her head POP’s right out at you! What MORE do you need?

You have to know when to STOP sometimes.

I think I’m going to try MORE photo 3 -D cards!

Although I think you can cross a line between cute to CREEPY! Maybe stop while I’m ahead! LOL!

Thanks for looking.

Till Tomorrow-

Kids room’s re-done

Mar 24, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Smilebox Creations, Uncategorized

Manic Monday! That’s going to be my new way to greet them! LOL!

MYTIME MAIL is posted below-don’t miss the chance!

Well I decided to put the kids room’s into a Smilebox-since there were a decent number of photos.

Just click it to view. Its a fun, and interactive way to share/view photos. AND, since I don’t scrapbook-its PERFECT and fast. I LOVE fast!

Now like I said-its NO Pottery Barn catalog-but the kid friendly version of a room 😀 If it was TOO gorgeous they wouldn’t be allowed to play in there! LOL!

It also went from “little kid” to sort of “bigger kid”

Noah even said to me “Mom I’m not a baby anymore. You need to get rid of my baby pictures and Noah’s ark stuff. That is ridiculous!”

WHAT?!!! I was in shock! So now all his “baby” photos and his “unapproved back in his room items” and stuff is in his closet :C. Only big boy stuff was allowed. I did get a TINY Noah Ark theme in ONE little corner-YEAH!

The kids helped with everything! They washed baseboards, window’s, dusted, moved toys from their room, chose where stuff was going. ALL of it. Except the painting.

It was great to get them involved. I didn’t think they would care to help, but they loved it! Plus having them involved allowed me to spend more time getting it done. Every person who comes over now has to go see it.

The other day UPS came to deliver a package, and Noah was like “Hey-you want to come see my room?”

Ugh-Noah-we don’t invite stranger’s into the house-remember? GEESH!


They feel proud that they picked where things are and helped with the process.

We have not yet re-sanded/re-finished the real hardwood floors yet, or gotten our new area rugs for each room. The girls still need their headboards as well.

You will see 2 princess picture’s. My friend Erin (the one I made the baby bouquet for) made them for the girls!!! Its all fabric pieced! She did a “Car’s” movie themed one for Noah, but Disney has strict “rules” so I dont want to get her in trouble. She said I wasn’t allowed to post that one-but let me tell you it ROCKS!!!

I told her she needs to start an Etsy Store. People would love to buy them. She’s quite crafty.

There are few other items I want/need to add, but didn’t yet. Gotta sneak in those purchases in slowly, so Jason’s blood pressure doesn’t go to Holy Crap!! over OH MY GOSH!!! (get it? instead of saying like 168/100).

BUT since you asked, and it will probably be at least another month till the floors/carpet are done-and I complete the little extra touches-so figured I’d share now.

My girls room is pretty big so it took a lot for me to do.

Keep in mind I did it ALL by myself.

That is moving every item of furniture OUT of the room, painting, decorating, and all that fun stuff.

Jay did help with the closets (each room has a huge walk in closet-the length of their room), and it was to the point that if someone broke into our house-we would not fit in there to hide! LOL!

My house is pretty clean-but my closets are always a disaster! I have no idea WHY I have closet HATE. But I do! I just hate dealing with them.

OK that was alot more babble than I planned-SHOCKING I know.

Here it is.

Thanks for looking.
