I LOVE making cards! Everyone who knows me knows me knows that my favorite place is my craft room (AKA: Creation Station). I usually make cards, and when I’m done coming up with something new, there tends to be an explosion of paper, ribbon, & embellishments.
What I enjoy making even more is something 3-D! Boxes & bags are so much fun to make & to give away! So, this year in place of my monthly card classes, I’ll offer Cards, Etc. Classes! Starting this weekend! We’ll be making 3 cards with matching envelopes, plus a 3-D item!
Here’s my 3-D for January:
I’m hoping everyone will love making these! Simple to make! Fun to give!
January Cards, Etc. Classes will be Saturday, Jan. 28 at 2pm or Monday, Jan 30 at 10am. Cost is $10 or FREE with your $20 order placed that day.
Had a fun Team Meeting today and I wanted to show off our swaps!
I had fun giving out a few gifts today… Everyone on my team received an engraved Bone Folder! They’re so cute…made by Tamra Davis (find her on Facebook).
I also celebrated a surprise $700 BONUS I received from Stampin’ Up! I didn’t see this coming! This was for having 5 Qualified Recruits!! They each got these cute little mailboxes.
I’m so grateful to my wonderful team! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm & support & friendship!
If you’d like to join my team, now is the time! Spend just $99 and you’ll get $125 worth of product PLUS 2 FREE STAMP SETS! Choose whichever sets you’d like! We’d love to have you join us! Offer good through March 31st.
Plus, you’ll receive a custom made Maui Big Shots! Bone Folder! I’m sure you won’t want to miss out on that!!
The Baker’s Box is the perfect size for a stack of cookies or a cupcake or handful of chocolate (my favorite!)
I just love this sentiment & think I’ll use it a lot! It’s meant to be used on the inside of a card, I think, because it actually starts with the word “because”. First I inked up my stamp & tried to erase it using a blender pen. I still saw a shadow when I stamped it, so I had better luck just inking the stamp using my marker.
Hope you are inspired to get some of those Embellishments! They’re so much fun to work with!
Be sure and check out what the other gals on the SSINK Design Team have created! You’re sure to get some great ideas!!
On New Years Day I posted about my 2017 Calendars. Just for fun, I decided to have a calendar give-away to someone who commented on my blog that day! Well, I had 5 comments- and I have 5 calendars- so you’re ALL GETTING A 2017 CALENDAR! Yay!
Congratulations to Linda, Annette, Nadine, Dina, & Ramona!
I always appreciate comments! Keep ’em coming!
I’ll email each of you to find out how to get your calendars to you. Thanks again!

Here’s some cards from our Ugly Sweater Card Contest. Debby is the winner of $30 in SU Products! Her card is on the left. Congratulations, Debby!
I’m excited to show you two ideas for Project Life! Please bear with me because it’s difficult to capture these pages in photos. Trust me! They’re really fun, cute, & super quick to put together!!
The first is to give a Project Life Kit as a Christmas Gift to someone who might enjoy using it to collect their memories! Last night I started a kit for my nephew, Abe. He’s really into making cards using My Paper Pumpkin, and I think he’ll love Project Life!
Some of you will remember… Abe & I were featured in Stampin’ Success Magazine this past October. I printed off the article for the adjacent page.
Abe has been in Special Olympics for many, many years & even went to Greece to participate! He was King at his Senior Prom. He’s been on a real billboard. He’s been on the news for his Random Acts of Kindness that he does every year on his birthday. Basically, Abe’s AMAZING!
I’ll just mail Abe the album with some extra insert sheets, the Project Life Card Kit, some Project Life pens & some Washi Tape. He can do the rest!
The next thing I want to show you is what I’m putting together for my daughter, Jenny, who was married October 29th. She was lucky to have 2 showers: one in Texas, where she’s living and one on Maui, where she grew up. Both showers had a tea party theme and I asked people to bring their favorite recipes. So her Project Life Album will be a very special Recipe Book!
I used the front page for the invitation. This paper and tea kettle is now retired (unfortunately!) but I wanted to show you.
Here you can see how I put the recipe from her high school friend, Debbie next to their picture. I used a cake photo from the shower & stamp set & thinlits. The background papers are from the Love Story Project Life Kit. There’s also Washi Tape on there. Fun to put together & very simple. In fact, I think it looks a little better if you don’t embellish too much, or it will look “busy”.
Here you can see where I used one of the cards she received (the umbrella). The possibilities are endless!
Found these pretty pink & gold clipboards on sale, so I’ve made up a few Desk Sets to sell at the Maui Big Shots! Craft Fair next weekend! I think they’re really fun & pretty & girly! The gift set includes the clipboard, journal, stand-up calendar, post-it note, & pen. Selling the set for just $18 & I only have a few, so let me know…
Lift the cover & what do you find? PINK POST IT’S! This set is NOT about less is more! Ha!
Be sure & stop by our Holiday Craft Fair this weekend where you’ll find a huge variety of Handmade on Maui gifts!!
I’ve finally had a little time to start making some things for our Maui Big Shots! Craft Fair, coming up December 3rd & 4th, from 9am – 3pm in Kula, Maui.
These make a pretty & very useful gift for most anyone, and I’m selling them for just $5 each. Shipping is just $6, no matter how many you order. They come in lots of different color combinations and I have a limited supply. You’ll need to hurry to place your orders before they sell out!
Leave me a message if you’d like to order some of these! Thanks so much!
