I love a good Kansas Summer evening… that comes complete with the magical presence of FIREFLIES I just LOVE them. It’s so pretty to look out across the yard and see the little bits of glowing floating around in the trees. So, when this Jar of Love stamp set came out I KNEW IMMEDIATELY it was going to have to be in my calendar. And that it had to be for JUNE.
So, the colors in this month are very simple. The pink is the flirty flamingo. I used Sahara Sand to stamp the jar, handle, and fireflies. (A tiny bit of masking with a post-it to make the bow not be too big for the jar neck). And, then I colored the fly behinds with the daffodil marker and added a smudge of wink of stella (Stella doesn’t like it’s picture taken apparently…so hard to get it to show up on photographs…)
Now I can have my fireflies in Hawaii…

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).

I don’t know why, but this set reminds me of the “April Showers Bring May Flowers” little rhyme. It doesn’t make any sense at all, cause there are NO SHOWERS here, but still. Maybe all the blue. No idea. But I love it.
I LOVE this Swirly Bird stamp set. So many ways to do t hings with this. You can use the flower images as nice backgroud fillers or you can use them as centerpieces in the design. I love the different blues. Soft sky and pool party give the different blue variations. And, of course Daffodil adds the pop of stand-out color. Perfect for spring time.

Happy February! As we turn the page to this month, love is in the air!! I love these little lady bugs. So cute. Reminds me of those I love in my own life…
This month is so simple, but cute. And, it was super fast to make… The stamp set is Love You Lots (obviously….) and did a quick marker color and that is that! This would also make a cute little 3×3 card too for your valentine!

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.
