Island Hopping – Fun With Origami!
Aloha, all! Once again it is the last Wednesday of the month and time for Island Hopping - a small hop between the islands of Maui and Hawai'i (The Big Island) out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I am from the Big Island and Cheryl Hamilton, a sister Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, is from Maui. Both of us love to stamp together. While we're not able to island hop in person, we've really … [Read more...] about Island Hopping – Fun With Origami!
A Throwback To – Last Week! A Special Guest Card
Aloha, all! I know that you all have read in my posts that I'd love to have you share your projects with me. Several years back I had several people share cards with me and I enjoyed blogging about them. And that was lots of fun. Finally this week I again have one of my readers who's shared with me. Not only did she share her own project with me, but she also shared one of her daughter's … [Read more...] about A Throwback To – Last Week! A Special Guest Card
A Quick and Easy Fun Fold Idea!
Aloha, all! This is the last Tuesday in September, and this post features the last of the quick and easy fun fold cards that I promised for Tuesday's Techniques this month. But there is one difference with this card. I really did need to write a full tutorial for the card. And I've promised those on my mailing list that that any full tutorial I write will be shared in my newsletter first. So in … [Read more...] about A Quick and Easy Fun Fold Idea!
Another Super Simple Fun Fold Card!
Aloha, all! When I talk about a card that has a fun fold, I really like to give the fold a name. Usually I don't have a problem with that because I've seen the fold in other places, and the name is right there with the card. In this case, though, I had no such luck. After I figured out how I was going to make this card, I went looking (on Pinterest, of course) to see how other people had made a … [Read more...] about Another Super Simple Fun Fold Card!
It’s a Halloween Fun Fold!
Aloha, all! This week we're continuing with my Tuesday's Techniques theme for September - Fun Folds. As a refresher, I decided that the folds for September are going to be easy to construct and are also folds that allow a card to stand up on a table or shelf. I love showing off a card that a friend sends me. And I'm so disappointed when I have to lay it down because there's no way it can stand … [Read more...] about It’s a Halloween Fun Fold!
A Diagonal Gatefold Card!
Aloha, all! It's Tuesday again, and time for my Tuesday Technique, which this month is simple fun fold cards. Nothing too complicated, and they all use just half a sheet of cardstock. In the case of today's card, once you've cut your half of the cardstock, you pretty much have to make another of the same kind of card with the other half. This is not a bad thing by any means! Cutting Cardstock … [Read more...] about A Diagonal Gatefold Card!
September Tuesdays – Easy Fun Fold Cards!
Aloha, all! For September, my Tuesday Techniques blog posts are going to focus on fun folded cards. Those that I'll be posting are almost as easy to make as a traditional "fold-in-the-middle" type of card. If you have any ideas that you'd like me to include, I'd love to hear about them. Meanwhile, I'll be posting folds that I've used in my own card-making. One aspect of card folding that I find … [Read more...] about September Tuesdays – Easy Fun Fold Cards!
More Christmas in July – For Island Hopping!
Aloha, all! Here we are, still in the last week of July 2020, and I and my Stampin' Up! sister, Cheryl Hamilton, are so thankful that Hawai'i dodged a bullet, er, Hurricane, last weekend. To celebrate, we've chosen to continue to celebrate Christmas In July for our monthly Island Hopping Blog Hop. The island are in Hawaii - Maui, Cheryl's home island, and the Big Island, my home. Check out the … [Read more...] about More Christmas in July – For Island Hopping!
