Just scroll through these pictures and you’ll get an idea of what FUN we have at club!!  Our Christmas Party, where we combine my 2 clubs, is the event we look forward to all year!  Everyone cranks out lots of little gifts to pass out & goes home with quite an assortment!  I couldn’t find pictures of everyone’s gift, but most of them are here.  You can see we play some silly games & eat some delicious food!

It’s time to sign up for our 2016 club!!  One is on the 2nd Saturday of each month at my house in Haiku and the other is the 2nd Sunday of each month in Pukalani.  The deal with club is that you must place at least a $25 order each month.  The best part is that we rotate Host Benefits, so the month that you’re the host you will get to select lots of FREE PRODUCTS!  Please let me know if you’re interested in joining us!

Season’s Greetings! Time to Order 2016 Calendars!

Dec 2015

Happy December!  This month I used one of my favorite stamp sets:  Work of Art!  So simple to make a pretty card using this set.  My colors are Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Wild Wasabi.  The branch is from An Open Heart.

Be sure and SLOW DOWN a bit this month and enjoy your family & friends and be sure to relax with a little stamping!  I have to tell myself this every day.  And focus on the “reason for the season”…JESUS!  We have so much to be thankful for!

Contact me to order your own 2016 desktop calendars for just $12 each. These include a sturdy plastic case.  The good news is shipping is just $6, no matter how many sets you order!  Order them soon to  get them for Christmas. 

Can’t wait to see what Anne & Crystal have done this month!

Have a Merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

So much to be thankful for!

At club last month we all made candles using or stamps. It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with!

Thanksgiving centerpiece

Thanksgiving centerpiece

I’m in Texas right now at a beautiful house on Lake Belton. In the next few hours this house will be filled with Hamiltons!  So for now I’m taking my cup of coffee up to the deck to enjoy the silence and hopefully see a few deer.

I’m so happy to be together with family this Thanksgiving, especially my two daughters. Malia left yesterday to go back to Orlando, but we had such a great visit. I’m also thankful for all of you and can’t wait to get back to stamping with you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Blue Wonderland

Some of my stamping friends wanted help coming up with a card using this beautiful stamp set, Wonderland, and they wanted it in all blue.

Here’s what I came up with:

Blue Wonderland

  • Colors:  Soft Sky background, Bermuda Bay (3 5/8 X 4 7/8), Lost Lagoon (3 3/8 X 4 5/8), Whisper White (3 1/4 X 4 1/2), Silver strip (3 1/4 X 1/4)
  • Stamp Set:  Wonderland
  • Accessories:  Cute bow cut from Mini Treat Bag Framelits, random sequins

I’m glad they asked me for this idea.  Don’t think I would have done all blue, but I really like the results!

Card for FMS210

I’ve been waiting for a card sketch that would challenge me to use the little left-over pieces from the Hearth & Home Thinlits.  I found it this week at Freshly Made Sketch #210!

FMS210

I have a pile of these little squares left over from cutting out windows, and I knew I would find some use for them.

  • Colors:  Tangelo Twist, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
  • DSP:  Into the Woods
  • Stamp Set:  Lighthearted Leaves
  • Accessories:  Into the Woods Elements & Cotton Ribbon
