Ring in the New Year

Ring in the New Year

2017 is HERE!!  Happy New Year!  And a new year means a NEW CALENDAR! I am so excited.  These calendars are so much fun to create.  I had a blast for this year…

I love that SU did a celebratory New Year’s stamp set…  called “It’s a Celebration”. (If you love it you have to act FAST, cause it’s only available till Jan 2).  It’s perfect for Hawaiian New Year’s Celebration because they are some of the most festive celebrations that I have EVER witnessed…lots and LOTS of fireworks).

The way the images work, you can layer the ‘sparks’ on each other to ‘build the blast’!  And, I love that it can be either a sparkler or an aerial firework.

You are in for a real treat this year!  Anne (mauistamper.com) and Cheryl (createwithcheryl.me) are joining me again this year and we all will have our own spin on the calendar page for each month.  JOIN US!  Check back on the first of every month to see the next installment for our calendar series! Better yet, follow the  blogs and you will get an email everytime we post

Happy New Year!

Happy 2014 to YOU!!

So, here is a little peak at one of my FAVORITE project and classes that I have been doing every year for the past several years.  I love these little easel calendars.  They are so fun to create and fun to give as gifts!!  This year, we have something special for you… There are only 3 of the Maui Stampers that make their own versions of these calendars, but we decided to put together a little blog hop for you to see our creations.  It’s fun to see everyone’s different take on every month!!

So, for you on this FIRST day of January 2014 (It’s gonna take me till April to type 2014 on the first try…) I have the cover of page of the calendar and January…

First, the cover page:

I love that quote, “Live the Life You’ve Imagined”.  I’m reminded often that my response to situations is what makes my circumstances good or bad.  And, that is the most critical in determining my happiness or what I get out of different situations…  I don’t have to be an observer of life, but can LIVE it.  And, am excited about this prospect in 2014…

This cover page was created with one of my favorite sets:  Tape it.  And, I use Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron, Baked Brown Sugar inks and the Pistachio card stock for the backing.

And now for January:

This little snow man I received FREE from the SU Convention.  Which I’m happy about, cause I’m not sure I would have bought it. It seems a little weird to live on Maui and do lots of stuff with snowflakes, snowmen, and such other winter scene icons…  So, it was fun to play with a set I don’t normally use.  This particular one is called Snow Day.  And, because I am on Maui, and because of the cheerful demeanor of this snowman, I wanted to make sure he was bright and cheerful…  So I stamped his body in Smoke Slate and did his hat in Tempting Turquoise and buttons in Melon Mambo…  This is SURE to banish winter blues and ring in the new year with a smile!!

So, this blog tour will have 3 stops.  Besides my calendar, you will have the privilege of seeing Anne’s and Cheryl’s calendars as well.  They will publish on the first of every month for 2014… ENJOY!!
