Aloha, all! For one day I'm skipping doing a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) of last weekend's blog hop and instead copying an idea from a card that I received from a friend - who also happens to be one of my downline! This card has basically the same fold as Wednesday's card, but the flap fold is at the … [Read more...] about CASEing a Friend’s Card!

Aloha, all! My grandson, Quintin, had a big milestone birthday yesterday. On August 27th, my oldest grandson turned into a teenager! According to his parents, they feel as if they've had a teenager in the household for most of the summer at least. But officially, he was 13 yesterday. So a nice Birthday … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday, Quin!
Aloha, all! In less than two weeks, the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog will "go live." That means all kinds of new products to drool over! It also means that Stampin' Up! will be retiring LOTS of stamp sets and other products to make way for new goodies. Sigh. So many of them are products that I've loved using, and … [Read more...] about A Favorite Retiring Stamp Set – Just Believe!
Aloha, all! So many times when we use the phrase, "Love Birds," we're talking about two people who are infatuated with each other and make that clear to everyone around them. I think my husband and I fit that description! So it was with my husband in mind that I picked my bird stamp for this week's Stampin' Up! Only Challenge - For the … [Read more...] about Love Birds!
Aloha, all! It seems like just last week that we greeted the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog! But that was back in January, and here we are nearing the end of April and also the end of the Occasions Mini. Sniff!

Aloha, all! This week's challenge over at the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge blog is to make a project with my favorite product from the 2012 Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. My FAVORITE? How do I pick a favorite???? Well, as you can see by this card, I cheated a bit. I started out thinking that the Twitterpated … [Read more...] about A Favorite?
Aloha, all! Where have I been all week? All over Hawaii's Big Island! We have family visiting and my husband and I have been playing tour guide. Of course, this is play and not work. There's so much to see on our island, and I love showing it off to people who are new here, and I always learn something new myself along the … [Read more...] about Back Making Cards!
Aloha, all! One of my hobbies used to be painting with watercolors. I took several years of lessons, but that was ages ago, and I probably have forgotten more about how to use watercolor than I remember. Nonetheless, I have had the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons in my craft room since back when you could buy all the colors at once in a big tin … [Read more...] about Something New!
Aloha, all! Every year at this time I make dozens of Christmas cards, but only one Hanukkah Card - for my close friend, Janet. I was so glad when Stampin' Up! included a Hanukkah stamp in their 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog - and as an A la Carte stamp, so I didn't have to buy a whole set. Janet's friendship is definitely worth spending the money for a … [Read more...] about A Hanukkah Card for Janet!
