Aloha, all! And, no, I didn't leave out a word in that blog post title! People around where I live talk all the time about how fortunate we are to "live Hawaii," not live IN Hawaii! But whether I live Hawaii or live in Hawaii, where I live brought me to today's stamp design. One of the online groups to which I … [Read more...] about So Lucky I Live Hawaii!
Aloha, all! While it may seem that advertising Saturday's Hilo Council FCE (Family and Community Education) Fair may not be related to stamping, it certainly is when I'm involved! Believe it or not, there are several Stampin' Up! demonstrators and customers in this group, and there are many craft items for sale made from Stampin' Up! products. … [Read more...] about The Hilo FCE Fair is Saturday!

For another thing, I was getting ready for my Convention Late Night Stampers demonstration, and we have a new puppy (check out his blog!), and DH has not been feeling well. So swaps were not in the … [Read more...] about Convention Swaps!
Aloha, all! Finally the card that started this whole thing. Ever since I first saw the stamp sets, Paradise and Greenhouse Garden, I envisioned them all in a bouquet. Then, when I decided on a Pop Up for my demonstration project, I wanted this bouquet to be the inside of the pop up card. I used both the Paradise and Greenhouse Garden stamp sets for the outside of the card, … [Read more...] about Simple Pop Up Card – Part IV
Aloha, all! One of my favorite flowers in my husbands spectacular garden is the Hibiscus. We have at least half a dozen varieties, and they never cease to catch my eye when I happen upon them. A stamp in one of Stampin' Up!'s brand new stamp sets, Greenhouse Garden, is a 2-Step Stampin' Hibiscus. In 2-Step Stampin, you first stamp the background stamp in a light or medium range … [Read more...] about A Hawaiian Touch
