Damask Divas Claire Blog Hop!



Welcome back for another amazing Damask Divas Blog Hop!  Did you know we have not one, but TWO hops today?  Yep!  This hop is for the Claire Paper Packet, but we have another one for the National Scrapbook Month Dream Pop Paper Packet too!  You can find that hop HERE.  If you are on the road for the Claire Hop, from Traci's blog, then you are in the right place!  You can find the complete list of Divas in the Claire Blog Hop on the Damask Divas Blog HERE.

The Claire Papers had me from hello chevron.  ;) /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
I LOVE the patterns on these B&T Duos, and the color scheme is super adorable.  They were perfect to use in the prototype for my newest creation/invention, the Tooth Fairy Friend.


WARNING!!!  Frank and open talk about the Tooth Fairy to follow, so log out now or quit reading out loud if the little ones are around!

How many of you have forgotten *gasp* to leave money for your child's tooth that he or she left under the pillow?  How many of you remembered, but could not FIND the tooth that had been carefully placed under the pillow?  How many of you could not even GET to the pillow because it was on the top bunk!?  And how many of you reading now have a child that is TERRIFIED of a stranger, even the Tooth Fairy, coming into his or her bedroom at night to retrieve a tooth?  Well, help has finally arrived!  This handy Tooth Fairy Friend can be placed on ANY doorknob for easy access.  If your little Susie cannot sleep because the Tooth Fairy might sneak into her room at night, then by all means hang it on the other end of the house!  The Tooth Fairy Friend makes the tooth for money exchange a whole lot less painful than loosing a tooth!  ;)


 AND these new alcohol ink markers make hiding the score lines in your 3D items painless too!  ;)  I found this door hanger on the Art Philosophy Cartridge and cut it at fit to page.  This is the largest size you can make it on your 12 x 12 mat.


These adorable mini clothes pins are super useful when it comes to banners!  The Keyboard Kraft Alphabet is ready for any kind of color.


I used the Girls Rock My Acrylix, outdoor denim chevron ribbon, and pink glitter gems to add some bright color.


So, where do you put the tooth?  In one of these handy tooth pouches, of course!   You can easily find the tooth, leave the money for your little one, and head off to bed knowing the job is done!  What I wouldn't give to have had one of these for all of my girlies' Tooth Fairy days!  I can't wait to list some up in my Etsy shop for other parents to use!  :)


I stumbled upon this tooth shape on page 50 of my Art Philosophy Cartridge while decorating THIS journal.  I had a bunch of pieces left on my desk after cleaning off the cricut mat, and thought to myself, where did all these teeth come from???  This is what they were...


...leftovers from this gorgeous flower layer! 


Isn't that the funniest thing!  You never know what shapes you will stumble upon in our cartridges!

I hope you enjoyed my project today, and I hope you visit our Dream Pop Blog Hop too!  Your next stop to see Claire at her best is Jamie's blog.  Enjoy!  OH!  And don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway on the Damask Divas Blog to win a My Acrylix Stamp Set from creative Diva, Cydney!

  5. LOVE this! Our tooth fairy forgets ALL THE TIME...lol...she's really busy! We have pocket doors but I'm sure I can think of some version of this that will work! My kids know that I end up with the tooth for their scrapbook so I've used the excuse that they put it under MY pillow and the tooth fairy will give them money after she inspects the tooth for no cavities then I'll give them the money the next day.

    1. Our tooth fairy desperately could have used a friend. That is a FACT! ;) Brilliant job circumventing the task, lol! Hmmm...pocket doors...what about cabinet drawers? Any knobs?

  6. WOWSA ... where do you come up with this stuff??????? This is the cutest thing ever. What a great way to make something that's truthfully a bit of a pain in the neck into something special for EVERYONE involved. If I had had something like this maybe the tooth fairy wouldn't have missed our house so often!

  10. Oh what memories seeing tooth pouches! Just remember if they see it early to tell them no more room in tooth fairyland...the tooth fairy asked you to store them. Such a creative soul you have! So fun and exciting too see what you create. Quite the heirloom for teeth!
