Painted Harvest

Standard

Happy November!  We are officially embarking on the holiday season journey and I can’t think of a better way than to have a calendar page with this beautiful sunflower turned harvest flower stamp set!  I love this Painted Harvest set.  You can completely change the look with with whatever ink you choose.  Pastels make it very springy.  Brights are perfect for joyful celebrations.

Here, I chose soft suede as the petal ink and crushed curry for the center.  It is a super fast but beautiful stamp.  This set is so versatile.  If you don’t already have it in your collection, you should snatch it up.  Luckily, it is still a current set in the 2018-19 Stampin’ Up Idea Book and Catalog.

Take some time this month to pause and enjoy the holidays.  I am so thankful for so many blessings.  And, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to be creative.  That brings me so much joy.

If you enjoy being creative and would like to make your own calendar, this year, I have something new for you: The PDFs of these calendars!  It will look exactly like the calendar above (same fonts) but will be 2019.  For $5 you can get the files (calendar, cover page, and cutting instructions) and make as many calendars as you would like!  These make PERFECT gifts for family, friends, co-workers.  The easels are available in many craft and hobby stores.  They fit perfectly in the Stampin’ UP! clear card boxes and make a gorgeous gift.  Fill out the form below and I will email you an invoice through square.  Once paid, I will email you the files!

When you make your pages, upload to instagram and tag @hanniejoyandco so we can see your beautiful creations!

Pick a Pumpkin!

Standard

I LOVE all things fall. And at the risk of sounding like I have jumped on the “all things pumpkin spice bandwagon”, I do love pumpkins. (Don’t care for pumpkin spice so much though… ) Anyway, I’ve ALWAYS loved fall and miss it SO MUCH now that I live here in the islands… So, we try to MAKE it look like fall to try to trick my mind to thinking it is actually getting cooler…

So, it is with this in mind that I made this October calendar page! I used the Pick a Pumpkin bundle from the 2017 Holiday catalog (sorry, it’s now retired). But, I do love the pumpkins. And the fact that the face on the pumpkin can be optional. The coordinating framelits have so many wonderful stems and pieces to go with! I just love mixing them together.

I used pumpkin pie (of course) and cajun craze for inks. This set makes such happy little jack-o-lanterns!

If you’d like to make your own DIY Easel Calendar, this year I have the PDF available. It includes the 12 months of 2019, a 2019 cover page, and cutting instructions. The formatting and fonts are the same as this year’s calendar. The calendars are quick to stamp since the format is 3 1/2″ square, making them ideal gifts. The easels are available online as well as in most brick-and-mortar craft stores, and an easel plus calendar pages fit perfectly in the Stampin’ Up! Acetate Card Boxes.

Cost for the PDF is $5. Fill out the form below and I’ll send you an invoice via Square, and once you’ve paid I’ll email your PDF. You don’t need an account to pay via Square. It’s easy as can be!

Just a note…this is the honor system. $5 is a very reasonable price for this PDF, and there are no limitations on your personal use. If your friends admire your calendars, please direct them to this post to purchase their own PDF. It would be easy to forward the PDF, but it’s not right.

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!

 

Eastern Palace Blooms

Standard

May Day is here! May always reminds me of full on floral blooms. Between May day in Hawaii where all the children in school have a May day program that celebrates all things floral in Hawaii (it’s more than that, but the flowers really take center stage). And mother’s day is full of flowers… May is really a blooming month! I love this Eastern Palace set because of all the intricate floral arrangements you can create with it. And they remind me of mandalas…which also remind me of flowers. I hope your May is full of flowers. Both in the literal and in the joy that life brings. Pop on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you today!

Springtime Blooms

Standard

I love that April is here. For me, it’s a signal that spring is here and in full swing… Back in KS, you couldn’t always count on March being full on spring… There could always be one last snow storm that snuck in…. On Maui too…this seemed to be the case for this year. Not the snow… Mind you .. we have rain. But these last couple of days of March, leading in to April are beautiful! Sunny Spring Time! Bring on flowers!

This flower and background image comes from the You’ve Got This stamp set and I love it in it’s simplicity. Easy to stamp but also is a striking image. I used the simple black outline here but it would also be fun to color with our stampin’ blends…

I loved it so much I also decided to make it the cover of the 2018 calendar…

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!

Welcome 2018!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Calendar!  One of my favorite things about the new year is it’s a fresh new everything. And as I’m currently in the process of making the house fresh and new (not ACTUALLY…. But you know, the customary and impulsive cleaning and organizing that a new year brings) I’m excited to show you the new 2018 easel calendar!

I really do enjoy making these calendars. Here is the January edition for you today:

These adorable lanterns come from the Color Me Happy stamp set. I got lots of practice with the new Stampin’ Blends markers (the alcohol based markers that replaced the Blendabilities). I am SO happy to be able to have these markers again. They make coloring so much more fun.  I also dabbed a bit of Wink of Stella glimmer on each of them… Cause glitter makes everything much more festive. Hard to see… But this photo makes it a little better:

And as in years past, Anne and Cheryl will be joining me again for a little 2018 calendar tour! So you will be able to see three different takes on each month! Hope you enjoy!  Click the links to see what Anne and Cheryl made for you!

And… For you calendar DIYers… Anne has made a Pinterest board for everyone to post the calendars we all make. Send me your Pinterest user ID and we will add you to the board!

Happy 2018 to you!
