Those monsters look silly, I love them! I guess that answers your question. LOL. I like monsters because they remind me the bad things can be good too.

rachel said...

Michelle said...

I hope you have the most wonderful relaxing weekends! I hope someone takes lots of pretty pictures! Love hte monster paper and could use it over and over again.

I love monsters because Pixar's Monster's Inc made them not scary at all. Got love Mike & Sully and the pretty fur and the unique personalities each one has. Plus they are fun to look at!

Diane said...

I love monsters and these are so cute! I'd love to have them and can promise a good home!

LovelyMissKait said...

You are very talented. Those little monsters rock! I love hand-drawn doodles and caricatures so your monsters are right up my alley. I recently made a scrapbook page about my 5 year old son, which I embellished with little monsters.

I'd love to add yours to my scrapbook collection! :)

Keep up the good work. Kait

Laura said...

I just adore your monster. I especially like their chins and mouths are looking at them makes me giggle every time. Anything that makes me happy.. is super duper fantastic! :) Hey, have a great holiday!!!! Looks like a beautiful place :).

Tyggereye said...

Love em! I really like the fact that some of them if colored differently and used with different things could look like aliens as much as they do monsters. I like that some of the tails could double as dragon tails.
I think the only thing I'd change would be a little less pink, and thats just because I personally have boys!

My fav is the hairy foot. I don't know why. I just am in love with that image.

Priya said...

i <3 monsters!! they can brighten up any page, wall, or room; wherever you use them!! they have a way of bringing silliness and playfulness to any space and always bring smiles :) especially your monsters, awesome!!!

Amy Ragland said...

Those are the cutest monsters I've ever seen! Monsters are great...especially when they look like these monsters! :)

tallynt said...

I love monsters and you know I love your monsters. Why oh why I didn't sign up and get the kit when I had the chance I will never know.

Why do I like them - because they are cute and furry. When I think of monsters I think of shows I watched a kid, Captain Caveman, Sesame Street. I think of books like "The Monster at the end of the book" a personal favorite.

But mostly, I think of my two lovable and snuggly monsters at home. My sons.

So I hope you have a lovely holiday and know that I could use the monster paper on so many fun layouts.

Does that sound desperate enough for you?? ;)

Sandy said...

oh, i'm you're #1 (okay MAYBE #2) fan!!!! i'd looooooove it!! (-:

savitri said...

Those monsters are soo cute! I wanted to get the dozens kit but it was out... I actually just want the monsters :) Monsters are cute, least these ones, that's why I'd love to get my hands on them :)

stampinc said...

Pick ME ME ME! This is a MUST HAVE! I don't have any GOOFY MONSTERS and all my nieces and nephews would love to have a card and some altered items with these cute monsters. Plus it goes with my personality...GOOFY and making something with this would make me laugh and smile the whole time.
Thanks for a chance.

TiteC said...

Manda said...

Monsters in General are great because well, they don't have to be scary and using them creatively can add such great character to creations. Now your monsters are a silly cute that I just love, I get a big smile just looking at them :)

katie said...

choose me! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

i love monsters because they remind me of my niece. [but in a good way. she's just very active.] ;)

Cass said...

My 4 year old son is currently afraid of monsters, so we go on a monsters hunt every night before bed. Apparently monsters are scared of torch light so they run away! :)

The monsters in this pack look so cute! Perhaps with these I could get him to like monsters!

Lorie said...

Aw, those are super cute! Would totally love to have them to create with!! Can't wait to see who you choose!

Phoebe said...

Oh my goodness...those little monsters totally make me smile!! So fun and lovable!! You are one amazingly talented lady!! I pop in on your blog when I need a pick-me-up. Anyway..the monsters...are you kidding??? LOVE monsters!! My mom called me Oscar the Grouch and I still have a mini-crush on Grover...so cute. :-) I am such a fan of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, I think that would be a dream job. ;-) sorry for the ramble...your work is amazing...as always!!

SmilynStef said...

I love silly monsters ... they remind me of childhoos and always make me smile.

Tara said...

I love monsters just because I happen to have three of them (posing as little boys). You can't help but love even the things about them that might be not so pretty to other people when they are YOUR monsters!
And I am completely ga ga over your monster stuff. I shed a tear or two when I saw the kit sold out so quickly. I had hoped it might reappear again!

Teresa said...

I think it is such a great idea to add comics to the traditional scrapping!
So fresh and cool!

I love monsters because they make your imagination soar, they may take any shape or form...and they seem so real when you're a kid. I get to re-live "there's a monster!" now through my kids.

Funky Finds said...

You know, I think from the time we are wee ones we are programmed to be afraid of monsters. But when they are as cute & as seemingly cuddly as the ones you pictured here, who could be afraid? I want to hug those furry cuties & love 'em! :-D

Nan and B.A.G.S. the pug said...

I love monsters because they are very fun to make! It isn't like a "doll" per se... you can just get your creative on in any different way possible! Btw - LOVE The product!

believe_in_magic said...

Something most people don't know about monsters is that they only act gross and scary because people expect them to be gross and scary. I mean, if you saw a pink, triangular, one-eyed creature in public wouldn't your first thought be "Gross! I bet that thing hides its boogers under the bath rug so people slip on it!" Expectations are rough.

That, and they get pretty cranky sometimes. But you would too if you had to brush SO MUCH hair every day and you could never sit down for fear of getting some kid's gum stuck in the tresses on your hiney. It's a hard life and I'm a compassionate soul, so that's why I love monsters.

Oh, plus they sure can dance. ;)

Diana Cornielle said...

Okay, so I don't really like monsters that much but...... these I love! I just think they are sooooo adorable. They are cute, they make me happy, they make me smile, they make me want to jump out of joy, they are the cutest little creatures right now! I love the bright colors, too. And I would love to have them in my home, in my pages, I will love them and cherish them, and play with them and create cute little things with them, I promise!

cydders said...

elissa said...

Kimmieprout said...

i think your monsters are sooooooooo cute!!! it's so fun to see monsters that seem nice!!!

you're very talented!

Maryline said...

I like monsters because they remind me of my brother. Only joking :). I like them because of the endless creative possibilities they give you: they can look totally crazy, live in the weirdest/amazing place.

Cindy said...

qThese monsters are the most whimiscal, adorable, cutest,silly, colorful & happy monsters I've ever seen!!I love your art(e-mailed you about getting this paper & stamp)so I need you to pick me cuz I'm obsessive about things.They will have a nice,cozy home with my three grand-daughters & 2 cats.(they love monsters too!)

mmwwaahh211 said...

Sara said...

Makes me think of those little "virus" stuffed creatures that the pharm reps hand out at doctor's clinics. LOL. Love those little bizarre/cute monsters!

Melody said...

I love those monsters! :) I have always been fascinated with monsters (Where the Wild Things Are, fav book!), and now my son loves them too! Well, loves them... or is terrified of them! It changes every day! :)

Je said...

I love love love your monsters, they made me want to draw again. I used to love drawing them as a kid, 'cause they gave me so much freedom, I could draw 5 eyes, 3 legs, paint them orange with blue polka dots and it was all ok. That's my favorite thing about them.
Oh, is there any way we could still purchase your monster stamp?

Ruby Claire. said...

I never really thought monster would look cool on LO's but when i saw your designs i was like TOTALLY MAN!
Your designs are really awesome!
i would totally be AMAZED if i won it!! PICK MEEE!!
I like monsters now because of the variety and different colours. They are so random and creative and unique :)

Princess Moni said...

I think monsters are like some humans that might not be blessed with beauty and grace. Once you get past the physical appearances, you are able to see the true beauty of their soul. I also think they signify uniqueness.

Damaris said...

because they make me happy.(SMILE)
Enjoy your time away.
hugs

Aimee said...

awww, these monsters are so cute! monsters are great because they're superhuman. i mean this in the way that they are ugly and cute all at the same time. and they're furry...usually. and who doesn't love something like that? i mean come on.

charity.sorrells said...

I'll take your monsters ANY day compared to Alien or Predator....now who wants to snuggle up to a slimy jar-head when you can share candy with a cutie!?

jo said...

Don't like scary monsters - but yours look kinda cute!!

SABINA said...

Since my 4-year-old son´s favourite movie right now is "Monsters Inc" and monsters in general is his current obsession, I just GOTTA scrap about it. And what could be better for that purpose than your SUPERFAB stuff?!! They are just too cute for monsters - did you know that? So what do I think about monsters? I looooove yours!! And thank you SO much for all your inspiration!

Amy said...

I love your monsters because they make me smile and anything that makes me smile is a good thing in my book. I have 3 little monsters of my own (aka my daughters) and would be so happy to adopt your monsters into my family!

Nath44 said...

It reminds me of my childhood. They look very funny, very colorful, I love them very much. Nathalie from France

FormerlyLisaS said...

I love cute funny monsters because they can make you giggle and if you gave them a flower to say thank you they might eat it and you would giggle some more. Also, they probably make funny noises, and so do I. I don't like scary monsters like zombies. Why? Zombies people, I said ZOMBIES. Hello!?!? What about a cute funny zombie you ask? I don't know. I guess I would have to meet him first and get to know him...maybe he's just misunderstood.

Jules said...

I loved this monsters....I was pretty darns ad when I was too darn slow to pick them up....maybe I can win them ? :P

Sonia said...

I love monsters!!! They are fun and so cute!

Jill Deiling said...

oh yay, I LOVE those papers!! I was sooo bummed because I wanted to buy that dozens kit, JUST because your papers were in there, and the dozens kits are awesome too of course, lol.
I love your fun monsters!! I love how you can turn something scary into something so fun and silly! Although I have to assure my son that there are no monsters hiding in the dark, I totally believe in monsters! :D We are BIG fans of monsters inc around here, lol.
Thanks so much for being so sweet and giving these away Michelle! I hope you're having fun on your trip!

Britta said...

so... MONSTERS. I think I actually DON´t like monsters - the mean ones! I was always afraid of looking behind doors (when little and) when entering a room... afraid of monsters hiding behind!

But YOUR monsters are the cutest EVVA! (and don´t make me scream at all) *lol*
Britta

Scrapy Sev said...

Even monsters can be nice. the proof! I love them !! They are so cute and colorful !!! I think that everyone has his monster's alter ego (is that english ???! Huhu ?) ... For example.. I think I look like the pink one eyed monster.. Probably because we have the same hair cut... hehee !!!
Have a nice day !!!
