Aloha, all! Once again, it's the last Wednesday of the month, and it's time for the monthly Island Hopping Blog Hop featuring me, Robin Messenheimer, from Hawai'i's Big Island and Cheryl Hamilton from the island of Maui. This month we're featuring not only an upcoming holiday (Halloween), but we're showing off how stampers at all levels of crafting experience might create a card using the same … [Read more...] about A Fun Card for Every Stamper!

Aloha, all! In my last post, I introduced two of the stamps from the set that came with the September 2015 My Paper Pumpkin monthly kit. I just love this stamp set as it has lots of fun little stamps that I can use in so many different ways! I actually wasn't going to use the set again quite yet as I had a customer ask me to … [Read more...] about More Fun With My Paper Pumpkin Stamps!
Aloha, all! Yes, October is here and so it is that Halloween cannot be far behind! What a fun time to be back at work and play in my craft room with all the fun colors and tools that Stampin' Up! is offering for fall in the 2015 Holiday Catalog! While here in Hawaii we don't typically have the kind of a fall that you might … [Read more...] about October’s Here!
Aloha, all! Living in Hawaii, I rarely get to experience the colors and scents of a brisk fall day. This year is a welcome exception as we're traveling on the U. S.. mainland at just the right time for a fun autumn experience. In Pennsylvania and Maryland, the colors were gorgeous, and wind took lots of colorful leaves and painted the ground in lush … [Read more...] about Pop Ups for Fall!
Aloha, all! Can you believe that tomorrow is October already??!!! I can't either, except that I'm on my way to the United States mainland for my October trip there, so I guess I should find it easy to believe it's already here! And when it comes time to think about October, I think about some of the fun that I used … [Read more...] about Love Those Pumpkins!
Aloha, all! If you haven't noticed that Stampin' Up! has two new "Flip Card" Sizzix Thinlets for sale, then you need to learn about them - and buy them! Wow, what fun I've had and I've only had mine for a day! I used to do Flip Cards by using my Stampin' Trimmer to cut a rectangle that flipped when the card was … [Read more...] about Oh, my!

Aloha, all! Tomorrow I'll be "leaving on a jet plane" for a three-week trip to the U. S. Mainland. The first part of my journey is a 6-hour flight across the Pacific Ocean and that, to me, is a lot scarier than any Halloween card! No, I'm not afraid of flying. I started listing the reasons I'm not afraid of flying and it was going … [Read more...] about Scary? Not!

Those of you who read my blog posts regularly know that most of what I share with you are greeting cards made exclusively with Stampin' Up! products - stamp sets, inks, papers, embellishments - everything in the current Stampin' Up! catalogs! But today you might not recognize at least one of the items on the card as being in a … [Read more...] about Hybrid Trick or Treat?
Aloha, all! When I was a little girl (loooooong time ago!) one of my favorite toys was paper dolls. I'd love it when my mom would bring home a book or a box with the doll and her clothes all ready for me to cut out. I was in little girl heaven for days! And here I am at it again! The minute that Stampin' Up! came out … [Read more...] about Still a Kid at Heart!
