September Release Blog Hop

Hey beautiful crafters! It's Time for

Pretty Cute Stamps Blog Hop

SO, if you just got here from Kendra's blog you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning please head over to the Pretty Cute Stamp's blog and begin there. 

So, this year when my husband saw the stamps that came in the mail he asked, "are you going to decorate our mantle with those?" Well he said it with so much enthusiasm that I couldn't very well say no. So I put this little scene together. 

I'm using two sets from the September Release of the Pretty Cute Stamps found HERE.







Now if you click on the picture above and enlarge it you will see that the candle in the middle is also using Pretty Cute Stamps. I will be posting about that later this week along with a video. 

The blog candy for this hop is a $15 Gift Certificate to the PCS Store.


For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog. For extra chances, you can also "LIKE" Pretty Cute Stamps on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Cute Stamps Mailing List.  A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Friday, September 26.  

*Enabler Alert*
ALL New Releases will be on sale through September 30 and you can save even more by purchasing the September 2014 Stamp Bundle. WHAT?!?! Awesomesauce.

and just in case you get lost along the way here is the list of blogs you will want to check out!

Words For Pictures~A GREAT READ!!!

I was so excited to read Words For Pictures as my son and I are both huge Marvel fans. Brian Michael Bendis is one of the greatest artists to date. I was captivated cover to cover by the illustrations along with the process that goes into writing comics and graphic novels. The beautifully illustrated book has inspired me to begin drawing again with multiple different types of media. To know so much goes into each illustration just strengthens my love for this craft. I would highly recommend this book to any comic book enthusiast and aspiring artists of all mediums. A wonderful and quick read. After I was done reading this book I handed it over to my 12 year old son and he was enamored with the graphics and the content of this wonderful book. Thank you  Blogging for Books for allowing me the opportunity to review this great read; all opinions are my own.



The Big Book of Angel Tarot


I've been reading over this one for a while now. It's taken me a little bit longer than I expected because it is so thorough and well thought out that I needed the extra time to process each portion of this beautifully written guide. I had initially purchased the Angel Tarot cards independently. I quickly found that I needed more of a guide for the cards and so when I saw this book available for review I jumped at the chance. This book helps to clarify the card in depth providing the cards Dreamer's Journey, symbolism, Angel number, Archangel as well as the astrology related to each card. The cards are so beautifully designed with wonderful imagery. The only thing I would have liked to see is the illustrated images from each card in color in the book. Otherwise, this is an amazing guide for anyone interested in Tarot and specifically this beautiful & uplifting new creation of the Angel Tarot.

*I received a copy of this book from the HayHouse Book Nook in return for a fair and honest review*

This is a bag from SU and I stamped it using Staz'On ink and a few of the cutie pie stamps from the "Spooktacular" stamp set. I filled it up with some yummy candy corn and it will go out to one of my good friends who is living in Dallas. A quick and easy gift that would be great for classmates or neighbors.

Woodland Critters

Hi everyone! I'm here to share with you all a cute little critter I made using the Woodland Racoon file.

Puppet Theatre

Hey beautiful crafters! Sooooo the kiddos and I went on a walk yesterday and found this super cute puppet theatre. Of course I had to make the girls something fun to play with it. NOW they want ALL of the member exclusives so I'll be sure to post a picture when we make more. ;)


Elmo blends in a little but I'm not sure how to change the color of the curtains without taking the entire thing apart. ;) 

Thanks everyone so much for stopping by!

This post has been brought to you by the colors Blue and Red as well as by the

Hey beautiful crafters! Today is my day to post and I forgot to schedule my projects. ECK. Sooo sorry I'm late!

Without further ado...I made multiple lunch notes for the kiddos lunch boxes using various different Pretty Cute Stamps Sets!

This little cutie was made with the adorable The Write Stuff stamp set!

 Have you ever watched Master of Disquise? Yeah this was inspired by that using the super fun Sea Ya Soon set. 
And this one was also made with my new favorite set The Write Stuff

Doll patterns

Hi beautiful crafters! I hope you are all doing fabulous!

Okay so before I show you my project I wanted to say a little something. I recently removed about 1,000 people off of my personal Facebook account. Nothing personal at all. I just decided that if we've never spoken or shared a quick hello then maybe you were just there for the crafts? So with that said I've decided I will give my best effort to posting all of my crafty projects on my Love4Stamps Facebook page!

Now, onto my project for today!

So I was looking over the files at PPbNdesigns and decided wouldn't they be super cute as dolls? Yeah! I have two girlies who love dolls. My older daughter had a tonsillectomy the beginning of 2013 and they gave her a doll at the hospital. So, now she is on a mission to make dolls to give to the kiddos who go through surgery! Love that idea so I'm helping her out a little.

Here is one of my recent dolls after washing.

Hope you all enjoy!

The file I used is the Kansas Girl file. I then stamped her face with StazOn ink and the Super Simple Eyes and Noses Set. Because I didn't want her face to come off after being played with a lot I went ahead and stitched it with black thread. 


That's it for today! I hope you all enjoyed and I'd love to see your projects so please tag me when you post them online. ;)

Hugs and Creative Blessings,
Raven

The Write Stuff

Okay I need to be honest and tell you every time I pull this stamp set out to use it and I read the title I start singing..."You've got the right stuff baby..." Yup I know. Just be thankful you aren't in my craft room when the production begins. It's not pretty my friends, it is not pretty!

Anyway, let me share with you all a project I made over the weekend!



I super love it! The girls started a new school and they are VERY strict on healthy eating so we cant' give the teachers candy. This bad boy is loaded with pencils though, we figured it was the next best thing?!?! Well...we couldn't very well fit books in there!

Hope you've enjoyed! I used the adorable stamp set called The Write Stuff!

Have fun crafting, my friends!
