Aloha, all! I have spent the past week just crafting away, not that you'd notice from my posting here. But it was craft or post, and craft won. In the midst of all that not posting, I missed the fourth of the birthday cards that I mentioned last week, but it was actually the first of the birthdays in the group. Just to confuse things further, the first card I made was for tomorrow's birthday … [Read more...] about A Belated Birthday Wish!
Aloha, all! Once I got my masculine cards out of the way for the group of upcoming birthdays, I was on to making cards for the two women on my list. At this point, I'd not yet put away the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP), and I started rummaging through the pretty magnolia designs in that set. I really love the brightness of the prints that have a white background, so I chose the one … [Read more...] about Birthday Week – Part 2!
Aloha, all! This past weekend I realized that I had a busy week ahead of me AND that there were FOUR birthdays bearing down on me all of which required a handmade card: My sister, a grandson, a nephew and a BFF. Yikes, I'd better get rolling on this one before life takes over! Two of the cards I needed to make are for men. While I love to make cards with geometric designs, I personally … [Read more...] about Birthday Week – Part 1!
Aloha, all! My last post included two cards that I'd made using paper from this past winter's Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure. Today's post is a quick look at the third card I made when I had that paper out, and also includes another sneak peek into the upcoming Holiday Catalog and the Peaceful Boughs Bundle that you'll find in that catalog - September 4th! For this card, I just cut … [Read more...] about One More Sale-a-Bration Reprise!
Aloha, all! You might be aware that it's just a bit more than 3 weeks until Stampin' Up!'s 2019 Holiday Catalog is released. But you may already have seen many demonstrators show off some of the Holiday Catalog product that they bought as part of the demonstrator pre-order program (yes, demos get to buy stuff early - so we can show samples off to our customers as soon as the catalog is … [Read more...] about A Sale-a-Bration Reprise (With a Sneak Peek)
Aloha, all! I have been SOOO late getting my Christmas cards out (am I the only one???). Yesterday I put all the East Coast USA cards in the mail - they should make it. Today, all the West Coast cards go in the mail (assuming I get off my duff after my first cup of coffee in the morning!). Yes, there are some in betweens, but some went with the East Coast and some will go with the … [Read more...] about My Favorite Stampin’ Up! Image for Christmas 2017
Aloha, all! When my husband announced last week that his photographer's club's Christmas Potluck that he was attending was having a gift exchange, and the gift was supposed to be related to photography, I basically let that information go in one ear and out the other. I am not a photographer (except when it comes to processing photos of my crafting projects) so I couldn't see where this was … [Read more...] about Fun With Sketches!
Aloha, all! I've had so much fun the past few weeks getting my Christmas Cards done. Stuck at home in a wheelchair and a cast-type boot on my driving foot has meant a lot more time in my Craft Room! One of the things I've tried to do is to be sure that I use ALL of the Christmas and Winter-themed stamp sets I've bought. There are still two sets left that I haven't touched. But, in the midst … [Read more...] about More Christmas Cards – With Retiring Products!
