Aloha, all! Most of you know that "vintage" is not really my strength when it comes to greeting cards. Scrapbook pages, maybe. But my brain has trouble wrapping itself around taking beautiful papers and making them look old. So when Stampin' Up! comes up with some papers that are basically vintage in their style, I can do a bit better with … [Read more...] about A Touch of Vintage!
Aloha, all! Oh, no! Another color challenge! Create with Connie and Mary has another color challenge for those of us participating as designers in their Occasions Edition.

Aloha, all! Have you noticed a distinct lack of activity around Robin's Craft Room this week? So has my dog, who has been able to lie anywhere he likes in there without my tripping over him several times an hour.

I can remember being so excited when … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday, Morgan!
Aloha, all! Do you ever start a crafting project and find that making it takes you back to something in your childhood? That's what happened to me with this card, and I thought I'd quickly take you through a few of those memories. A good part of my childhood was spent at the home of my aunt who was also my Godmother. Aunt … [Read more...] about Bringing Back Memories
Aloha, all! Well, this is the week I've been working towards since before Christmas - the week when I have to have my first Create With Connie and Mary Occasions Edition projects done AND my sister-in-law and her husband are coming for a 10-day visit.

Aloha, all! I'm hostessing my last Christmas Card making class today and last night realized that I definitely needed a card for a younger person. So I pulled out Forest Festivities, with the cute little animals, and was stopped dead in my tracks. It was late and I couldn't figure out what to do with it! Create With … [Read more...] about A Sketch Saved the Day!
