BOYS’ DAY!

Standard

 

As I mentioned in March, Hawaii has a tradition of celebrating Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day.  Well, March was for the girls.  And MAY is for the boys!  May 5 to be exact.  And, the tradition is to fly a flag off the porch that has the carp on it.  One for each male member in the family.  So…  

Here is our BOYS’ Day FLAG!  (I technically need 3 flags for my family, but we have to pretend here).  This cute little fish comes from the Jar of Love stamp set.    (A set that has SO MANY possibilities.  You most definitely need it).

Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!!

 

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

Awesomely Artistic September

Standard

 

September brings this beautiful bouquet of flowers…  From the Awesomely Artistic stamp set!  Such a beautiful set of flowers.  image

 

As an aside, I’ve seen this stamp used as part of the new ‘coloring book’ craze….  the detailed outline image allows for the ‘zen’ coloring.  Stamping then coloring!  Couldn’t be more fun!imageAnne and Cheryl have something fun for September as well!

Bordering Blooms

Standard

I love mixing a neutral and a bright color!  It adds a great contrast and pop to the project… this is the case with August!!image

 

 

This Bordering Blooms stamp set is SUPER fast and easy to use.  They are longs trips of images and perfectly spaced to do the outside images in one step and the inside in another set!  Tip Top Taupe and Daffodil Delight are the colors used here.  I am a Kansas Girl.  And, these little flowers faintly remind me of sunflowers (my FAVORITE).  And, August is a good month for sunflowers!

I wanted a little Happy New Year gifty for my stamp club members… so on one of my excursions to target, I happened upon these in the Target Dollar Spot:

Super cute little calendars with a clear plastic cover.  I used to decorate these a million years ago… and with the digital influx, they seem to have not been as prevalent as they once were…

So, I loaded up.  And decided I needed to do something nice, but it had to be fast.  Cause, I don’t have these brilliant flashes of crafting genius when I actually have time to make anything.  It’s always last minute…

So, I thought watercolor and Flowering Field (a Sale-a-Bration set).  You can whip up a gigaton of these in a jiffy!!

They are perfect!! the aqua painter makes this go so fast.  Use some favorite colors and you have an instant gift.

I was just at the dollar spot yesterday… they have more…  Hurry.  Before I go back and buy the rest…

A Hawaiian Fall….

Standard

September is HERE!!  That means school is in full swing and we are looking forward to fall.  Well, on Maui, fall isn’t fall like it is elsewhere, but it does mean a little cooler temperatures (hopefully!!).  Anyway, given my love for all things fall and the fact that Maui doesn’t really have your typical fall, I chose to stamp these little flowers in fall colors…to kind of meld the two!!image

They vague look like some of the tropical flowers (well, ok, not really…you REALLY have to use your imagination) and the Cajun Craze is the perfect fall color to be part of the mix.  Hope you are planning crisp evenings at football games and hot cider and hay rides and bonfires and cozy sweaters…  (those are all the things I LOVE about fall…)image

April!!

Standard

I love April! And spring! And Easter! It’s so cheery. So I thought a cheery page would be perfect.

image

I used the splot stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to make the background and punched the butterfly from a piece of embossed scrap. Can’t get any easier than that!
