Aloha, all! Back when I first saw the Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, I immediately fell in love with the Tropical Escape Suite of Products. It reminded me so much of our garden, and I could hardly wait to get my hands on it. As you might imagine, after what transpired in early May as the lava from the Kilauea Volcano took our home, I became less thrilled with the idea of using these … [Read more...] about Suite Fun!
Aloha, all! First of all, let me tell you that I finally have a table for crafting that I can call my own. Check out my Robin's Craft Room Facebook page to see a photo of it. Not only that, yesterday I stopped everything else that I was doing and made a card sitting at that very table. I did have to put everything away afterwards just so that I could find things when I came back to the table … [Read more...] about It’s a Puzzle?
Aloha, all! I'm back again, this time after having gone through the third stack of fabulous Stampin' Up! cards sent to me by so many sister Stampin' Up! demonstrators (nope, still no cards from Stampin' Up! dudes!). First of all, you may wonder what happened to the second batch of cards. Well, it's safe and sound in a box that I left behind when we had to leave our temporary evacuation home … [Read more...] about Love You to Pieces!
Aloha, all! Here I am again, and just one day after my last blog post! It felt so good to get my hands on my new Stampin' Up! Catalog and go through it to see all the wonderful new stamp sets and embellishments. I just had to do it again before I get wrapped up in more lava evacuation issues. For today's post, I went through all the fab cards that sister Stampin' Up! demonstrators have sent … [Read more...] about Fun Impressions of a New Catalog!
Aloha, all! When I created this project over a week ago, I had no idea that one of my favorite, but oft neglected, Stampin' Up! colors was going to be retired. It's one of those colors that's always been there for me to use, even though of late I've neglected it. But this week's challenge from The Card Concept brought it back to the forefront of Robin's Craft Room and, at the time, I promised … [Read more...] about Aloha, Tempting Turquoise!
Aloha, all! One of my favorite activities when I’m in a bit of a design slump is to find a sketch with which to work. Just looking at a sketch and then trying to figure out what in my own personal stash would work with it gets my creative juices flowing. A while back, I created a sketch for a class I was preparing, then let it lie without being used. And today, there it was right when I needed … [Read more...] about Having Fun With a Sketch!
Aloha, all! It's time for another Stampin' Up! Only Challenge over at the SUOChallenges.com website, and this time I had a hard time deciding what I should use for the theme, "A Favorite Sentiment." OMG, I have so many favorites! I started thinking about long-retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets and sentiments that were unique to them and that I really, really miss. But, if you've been … [Read more...] about A Favorite Sentiment!
Aloha, all! I just love to send Valentine Cards, and this year I've made and sent well over a dozen. As you might imagine, the two cards I'm sharing today are cards I made at least a week ago so they could get in the mail in time to arrive on February 14th. But I waited until Valentine's Day itself to share them here just because I wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day right … [Read more...] about My Last Valentines of 2018!
Aloha, all! I have had my broken foot out of a boot for over a week, and I am moving around so much better than I have been for the past 3-1/2 months. Yay! It's also just about the New Year, with the Christmas Holiday season about over and all my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog stamps and papers packed away. That means that my Stampin' Up! craft work is also now back to … [Read more...] about Getting Back to Normal!
Aloha, all! I really do like the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper, as well as the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies that are in the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog. And you just have to know that they're not just for Halloween! There are some beautiful designs with Fall Colors in that paper set, and pumpkins will take us all the way to the USA's … [Read more...] about Halloween’s Over – But Not These Products!
Aloha, all - and especially Becky! My friend, Becky, is having a special birthday today. Yesterday I attended a girls' afternoon out Birthday Party for Becky. Of course, as I know she loves paper crafting, I had to make note cards for her. As I'm sure those of you who know what's what in the Stampin' Up! … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday, Becky!
