Exciting Stuff!

Yes I know it has been forever! Holidays are crazy especially when you leave 2 calendars to be made till the VERY end! My resolution this is to do 1 month at the end of each month to avoid that AGAIN! And if I don't do it then I just don't make the calendar! I was in such a RUSH and finishing them literally minutes before we had to walk out the door on Christmas Day! Talk about cutting it close! I didn't even get a chance to get pictures of the pages I made! I will have to go to my parents and grandparents to get some pics of the finished product.

So I don't think I ever shared the sad news that Paper Popsicles was closing its doors and re-opening in January on the blog only. Well the BIG day is almost here! That's right this Friday they will open a whole new and improved site, and the store will still have those AWESOME Cheeky Radish images and the shaped cards as well! And I am SO excited to share that Melissa asked me and a few others to design with the first new shaped card for the new site! I saw this cutie and a million ideas jumped into my head instantly! He or she is available on the new site for FREE!! My first card is a big brother card for a friend who just had a baby and her little boy LOVES elephants, so how could I not make him a card! I used some fun Sassafrass paper on this guy and some fun twine to hold the sign around his neck! I cut the first elephant shape out of the pattern paper and cut slightly inside the outline of the template, and for the cardstock elephant I cut slightly outside the outline of the template to give the shadow to the elephant. I freehand cut out the ear for the elephant, and bent it slightly and attached the ear to the elephant.

For the next card I copied 3 elephants onto my page and had each trunk over lap a tail in front of him to create 3 elephants marching in a row. I cut them out and then using a circle punch cut out and attached the red circle to the back which I then trimmed the excess from, used a star punch for the stars, black glaze pen for eyes and a mouth, and Copic marker to make nails. I again freehand cut out some ears for each elephant and attached them the same way. I then took a Popsicle stick and cut it down to create a pole and cut out a cardstock flag and used my ALL time FAVORITE DoodleBug mini rub-ons. I used my trusty Zip Dry to attach the pole to the lead elephant's trunk and there you have elephants on parade!

Now aren't they just the cutest??!! So head on over to What's the Scoop? and get yours today! And don't forget to share what you create! Don't forget this FRIDAY they start all the new fun as well!

Well I need to get moving as I still have some things to do before work tonight, but I will be back with more fun stuff!


Thanks For Visiting!
