Tasty Treats of Summer

Standard

One of my favorite things to do in the summertime when we went to visit my Grandma’s was to run out and get a special treat when the icecream truck went by.  So, when Stampin’ Up released the Tasty Truck Stamp Set (now retired), I just KNEW it had to be for my summertime calendar!

mvimg_20171230_1720593245543515674445406.jpgThis is such a fun little truck!  I used the watercolor pencils to color in the details!  I like the pencils because they are very pigmented and work well as a pencil or as a watercolor.  It’s super easy to use!

Hope you have a fun summer!  Head over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!

Spring is ‘Ready to Pop’

Standard

Happy March! Can’t believe it is nearly spring break. As a teacher, every month has it’s highlight and for March, it’s most definitely spring break.

So. The name of this stamp set is Ready to Pop. And it has this awesome little border stamp that works so perfect here. And the little punch (sorry, it’s retired) adds just the right flowers for some sweet sprintime blooms. The paper is blushing bride and the ink is pear pizzazz.

Thanks for stopping by today! Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!

February is always a fun month for me… a return to a normal routine after the holidays and the anticipation of the summer (as a school teacher, February always is an encouragement…that I may actually survive until the end of the school year).  And, I’ve always enjoyed Valentines from a crafting standpoint.  There’s no pressure around the holiday like Christmas brings, and it’s opportunity to do something cute, simple and fun!

This February is no exception.  The 2017 Occasions catalog had this stamp set, Yummy in my Tummy and the minute I saw it I KNEW this lovable beast needed to be in my calendar.  (Sorry, the set is now retired… I know, so sad)

Such a super simple, easy image.  And you can color, or no need…  And, he’s just a little friendly smile to see as you change the months on the calendar.

Hope you enjoy your February!  Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you today!

Bloomin’ Botanicals!!

Happy July!!

Normally I do a 4th of July special for this month, but I decided this year to go a little tropical for this month~

I LOVE this monstera leaf stamp (from Pop of Paradise stamp set).  It is so wonderfully tropical and perfect for Hawaii (and happy summer vibes).  The flowers are from Botanical Blooms (and this set has a great coordinating set of framelits, but sadly, it just retired.)

Enjoy the 4th with family and friends!

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

Fall Leaves

Standard

If you’ve been following these little calendar posts, you will probably have noticed that I am a FAN of the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (and coordinating framelits).  HUGE FAN.

So, It was a no-brainer when trying to decide what to use for October…  And, the corrugated cardstock!!  LOVE IT.  The background lines are from the Chalk Lines stamp set…  You notice, that cover for the calendar is the same everything…just a different background paper color… imageHead on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
