Aloha, all! Did you miss the chance to sign up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in June, with its offer of a Free Bundle? If you did, you have now stumbled into one of the best months of the year to sign up. Before I go into the many reasons why it’s such a good month, I should give you a little background on what it is to which you’re agreeing when you sign up as a demonstrator. You get … [Read more...] about July Is a Great Month to Join Stampin’ Up!
Aloha, all! Tomorrow is the day that the new Stampin' Up! Annual catalog goes live! I'm so excited. But I still have one last card using some retiring papers that I'd like to share with you. I have no doubt that I'll be using some new papers to make the same style card. So I'll wait until then to go over how I made sure that these squares all lined up the way I wanted. Goodbye to Country Club … [Read more...] about One Last Look at Retiring Papers!
Aloha, all! With all that’s been going on this Spring, I have almost completely forgotten that May is just around the corner. And for those of us who love crafting with Stampin’ Up! products, that means that it’s not long at all before we will have to say, “Goodbye,” to the bright and cheery 2018?2020 Stampin’ Up! In Colors. The 2018 In Colors Are So Bright! I remember in June of 2018 … [Read more...] about The 2018-2020 In Colors – Almost History!
Aloha, all! Today's the day that I've been waiting for for the last couple of months - I finally can share with you EVERYTHING about the newest Stampin' Up! January - June 2020 Mini Catalog and the always wonderful 2020 Sale-a-Bration Brochure! OK - well, it's just a picture of each of the catalogs, not exactly the actual catalog. But I do have quite a few copies of the actual catalogs and … [Read more...] about The New Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Are Here!
Aloha, all! If you read my last blog post, you read about three different projects that I made using the Seaside Notions Stamp Set. That post was part of a blog hop with a demonstrator friend from the neighborhood island of Mauai. Because it was a hop, I didn't want to get into more detail about any one of the cards than I had to so that I could show off the stamp set we were featuring. But … [Read more...] about Watercoloring Seaside Notions!
Aloha, all! One of my favorite Facebook groups is one called, "Stampin' Through the Catalog." In fact, I do believe that this will be the first of many posts that I will share with you in which I follow along with the week's featured stamp sets. Today's stamp set is the new set, Daisy Lane, and its coordinating new Medium Daisy Punch. The Daisy Lane Stamp Set is featured on page 23 of … [Read more...] about Fun With Daisies!
Aloha, all! What a busy week this is! I usually spread my blog posts out so that they're at least a couple of days apart. But, after I wrote Tuesday's post, I had a blog hop on Wednesday and I just could NOT miss saying Happy Birthday to the late Mildred Hill, who original composed the music which we now use to sing, Happy Birthday to You! So thank you for stopping by three days in a row to see … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday to the Composer of the Happy Birthday Song!
Aloha, all! Today I'm back working with a stamp set that I've hardly ever used. It's the Tea Together Stamp Set, which was first introduced in the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. I immediately fell in love with this set as I love, love, love tea parties. I used to have them a lot when I lived in New Mexico, though I've not had but one since I moved to Hawai'i. Hmmm. I may have to … [Read more...] about Tea for Two?
Aloha, all! With all that went on in my life after the volcanic eruption last year and dealing with all the moving and getting settled, I have found that there are at least a dozen stamp sets in my collection that I've never used! Unfortunately, several of those retired earlier this month, and I'm just not going to take the time to use them now, because most of them did NOT retire! So I have … [Read more...] about A Personal Card Challenge!
Aloha, all! When I was working at getting design ideas for the orchid card I shared the other day, I started looking through my computer for the paperwork for a class I'd planned last year using the Climbing Orchid bundle that was current at the time. While I didn't find that paperwork (it may have been just before the volcanic eruption, and I likely never finished it), I did come across a … [Read more...] about A Fun Box Fold!
