Beeeeee mine

Beeeeee mine

 

 

I love this little bee!!  It has such a cheery smile… so it was a MUST for this February Post.

The stamps are from the Honeycomb Hello stamp set.  The little polka dot  hexagon background adds the perfect amount of texture and color to the page…  And, of course, you cannot forget the bling in the heart punch-out…

Happy WONDERFUL Christmas

Standard

I LOVE WREATHS.  Especially fresh ones.  Except where we live, we can’t buy it very early cause it won’t last long…  And, even fake ones take a beating on my front door (it gets direct sun for much of the day).  BUT… not ones on PAPER!!  This Wondrous Wreath stamp set is SO much fun to work with!!image

 

And, with the photopolymer stamps, it is SO easy to line up the layers of the wreath to make the different colored leaves and berries!  Lots of fun to make!

August

Standard

Happy August!!

I love banners.  I love making them… I love stamping them… They are so festive.  So, for August, and the ‘title page’ to the calendar, I decided to make a little banner…  This uses the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set (the ‘you made my day’ image) and Banner Blast (now retired, so sad…)…  But, these little banners are so fast and fun…

imageAnd, I love the Smokey Slate color with the pastels used on the banner.  Makes you think of calm, cool, and breezy in a month that could be very warm.  Helping you to have your own mini vacay… even if it is just for a moment in your imagination.

Hello Love!

Hello Love!

Hello MARCH!  What a glorious little birdie to welcome March!

These stamp are all from a hostess stamp set called “Hello Love”.  It’s one of my favorites.  And, for those of you buried in snow, it’s a good little reminder that spring is on it’s way.  Here on Maui, we had a bout of winter weather today.  Our winter weather. (It rained all day).  I do love Maui winters.

Well, with this month I’m particularly happy about because it features one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE stamp sets.  TAPE IT.  It’s a stamp set that looks like WASHI TAPE.  Be still my heart.  I”m still a bit of a newbie when it comes to the uses of washi tape, but it is becoming one of my all time favorites…. ANYWAY, having the stamp set allows you to do more things… you can stamp over text, etc… and make it in any color.

June

Welcome to June!!

Boy, Half of 2014 is gone…  But, for me, June embodies the gloriousness of summer.  The final school bell sounded this past week and we are looking forward to all the laziness (yeah, right… I just had twins) that summer can bring.  Well, we can dream about it anyway…

For this installment if the easel calendar, I used the Best of Shelli stamp set.  It had this nice bird and flower stamp.  Super easy to use and very elegant.  I used the Primrose Petals ink and paper for it and the bird is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.

CANDY CORN!!

Standard

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love fall.  LOVE IT.  It’s a bit ironic that I live in a place where fall is, well, not fall.  (AND, it’s especially not fall so far this year cause we’ve had record setting warm temperatures…so incongruent with what the rest of the country seems to be doing…)  BUT… I will be soaking in the sunshine come January… 🙂

That’s neither here nor there…

Like I said, I love fall.  And one of my most FAVORITE things about fall is Candy Corn!  Love it.  Love eating it whole, AND layer by layer.  Now, I’m a Candy Corn purist.  And, the stuff that LOOKS like candy corn but comes out at Easter in the pastel colors.  Not. The. Same. Thing.

Anyway, I loved this little Candy Corn stamp…  and my watchful bats to keep people from stealing my candy corn…  🙂  Sorry, the set retired last year… but still fun.

 

 

I love changing the months to a new calendar page!  Even though I made them and know what is coming, it’s so fun to see the change!  Like a little surprise at the start of each month!!
