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! I know you haven't seen much of me the past month, but I've been working hard at recovering from my bit of a scare of a heart attack earlier in the month. I actually can stand at my work table for more than 15 minutes at a time, and that's making a big difference in how much I can get done. (For those unfamiliar with how I work, I prefer to … [Read more...] about Hello Fall! Time to Get Back to Work!
Aloha, all! Welcome to the third Blog Hop of this summer for the summer online group, VC Rocks. It was 15 years ago this month that a group of Stampin' Up! lovers who couldn't make it to that summer's Stampin' Up! Convention decided to have a virtual convention online. What a blast it's been all these years, so we've decided that the theme … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday x 3!
Aloha, all! Those of you on my Newsletter Mailing list have already seen this project. But I thought the rest of you might like to see what fun I had with the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. The set was first released as part of the 2015 Occasions Catalog, but now it's firmly entrenched in the annual 2015-2015 Stampin' Up! catalog. And I'm quite … [Read more...] about Sheltering Tree with a Fun Technique

Basically, you are given part of the challenge each day for several days in a row. The first few days, you are told to cut cardstock and papers of … [Read more...] about If it doesn’t work the first time….
Aloha, all! I'm 75% moved into my own home after having been away for 6 months. Unfortunately, the 25% not unpacked and put away is what's in my Craft Room! I decided to do that by design so that our household would be back into commission and everyone would be ready for daily activities before I started in on my crafts. Yes, my crafts are … [Read more...] about Getting Ready for Easter!
Aloha, all! Earlier in the week I posted a Hexagon-shaped card and said I'd tell you how to get the tutorial later in the week. Well, now is later as I've made a Valentine Card with the same shape! What fun making these cards with "different" shapes is! As … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day!
Aloha, All! My sister-in-law, Deb, had a birthday on Thursday, and today's card is the one that I made for her. I didn't want to post it here until I was sure it had made it from Hawaii to her home on the east coast. Certainly by now it has. I'm writing this on Friday afternoon in Hawaii, and it's probably a bit late to be calling … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday, Deb!
