Going in a hot air balloon is on my bucket list! Maybe over Napa Valley or Santa Fe. There’s a cute stamp set called Lift Me Up that I’ve found a lot of use for! It comes in a bundle with Up & Away Thinlits Dies!
Have you ever gone up in a balloon? Where did you go? I’m “up” for suggestions! Ha!!
Be sure & check out what Crystal & Anne have created for their May calendar pages!

Today I’ll be showing you a nice GET WELL GIFT! A tissue box cover with matching Get Well Card. I’ve made 2 different sets using the same Designer Series Paper, Falling In Love.
Isn’t that pretty? It just sets on top of a tissue box.
Recognize that glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration? Love that!
Made a Get Well Card to match. Watch what happens when the card is opened…
Isn’t that cute?!! Simple, too!

My daughter, Malia, spent last Christmas with us, and helped me with my calendars. Here’s a page she created:
Those jars are just adorable! Our family loves to fish- everyone except Malia, that is. She says she loves fishing, but just hates to catch them. Feels sorry for the little things. Me. I grew up trout fishing in California with my dad. I could spend all day looking for the perfect fishing hole & be so happy! My husband loves deep sea fishing in Hawaii. He actually was lost at sea about 24 years ago when his boat capsized & was miraculously rescued the next morning!
Now hop on over to see what Crystal & Anne came up with for April.
Hi everyone! I’m taking over the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Blog today where I get to tell you about myself!
I was raised in Hawaii (my dad was a minister who worked with servicemen & women on Oahu) and love the beach, hiking, and all the local culture & food! I became a Pediatric Nurse, starting in Honolulu, then moving to Colorado because I’d never seen snow. That was quite an experience: learning to dress for cold weather, drive on icy roads, & to ski- which I love! Met my husband, Pat, when he was a surgical resident at Denver Children’s. We ended up on Maui about 30 years ago, where we raised our 2 daughters, Jenny & Malia.
Jenny got married a few months ago & she’s a nurse on a trauma unit in Texas. Malia graduated from UT, Austin, and will soon be heading to Syracuse, NY to work with refugees.
Oh, can’t forget my pride & joy, Swiffer!
I’ve always enjoyed crafting! I first got into stamping when Jenny was in preschool. Once a week, my friend, Wendy, & I would drop the kids off then head over to her house for a morning of stamping fun! I remember getting so excited when I discovered you could stamp with different colors. Everything was 1 layer back then. But just like skiing on the Bunny Hill is exciting when you start out, every card we made was exciting & fun!
I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for about 6 years now & I just love it! Being creative is fun & relaxing, but it’s the friendships I’ve made that have been an unexpected bonus! I’ve been a part of the SSINK Design Team since last year. It’s a huge challenge for me and quite an honor. Everyone on the team has been so encouraging and helpful!
I’m not sure how to describe my style. My favorite type of card is a “Fun Fold”. I’ll show you a few that I’ve made:
Before I go, here’s my latest project. I was inspired by these new stamps I found at the Post Office!
Matched up the cardstock with the stamps: So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Early Espresso, & Chocolate Chip, and reached for the Cool Treats Suite!
I’m excited to help promote an upcoming class hosted by 2 of my Stampin’ Up! downline, Claudine & Ramona! They’ve come up with 4 beautiful projects and we’re hoping you’ll be able to join us- or at least send us some love!!
Sunday, March 5th (1 pm – 3 pm)
St. Anthony School Library (1618 Lower Main St., Wailuku)
Class fee $10 or FREE if you place a $20 order that day
We’ll be making 3 Thank You Cards and a candy holder.
Isn’t this a gorgeous card?!! Guess what the skirt is made from? An upside down hot air balloon! And the lace on the side is a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp you can get by placing a $50 order.
More balloons! And see the pretty designs on the bottom. That’s Washi Tape! Love the colors!
Simple & colorful card! That “Thank You” is another FREE set!
And… a fun fold candy holder!
RSVP soon to hold your spot in class! Hope to see you there!
And please leave some comments for Claudine & Ramona to let them know how much you like their projects!!
I want to show you the projects we’ll be making in the February Cards, Etc. Classes.
Quite a variety! A Masculine Card, Sympathy, All Occasion, and a gorgeous new box that I want you to try out.
The box is called Window Box and it’s the size of a large cupcake. So pretty!! There are so many ways you can embellish it and I’ll let you decide how you want to decorate it. You’ll have different colors to choose from and a variety of ribbon.
I’m very excited to announce an upcoming class where we’ll be making a Seascape Framed Art piece! I love the art I’ve placed around my home using stamping mixed with photos, but haven’t found the time to do anything more for awhile. Then I saw this gorgeous framed art from StampingwithLisa.com and I’ve squeezed it into my schedule! Hope you can squeeze the time in to come to class!!
I’ll have 2 classes to choose from:
Saturday, February 18 at 2 pm or
Monday, February 20 (President’s Day) at 10 am
Cost is $20 or FREE with your $40 order placed that day and includes everything except the frame. I’ll have a couple of frames available for purchase for $15.
Class size is limited so RSVP soon to reserve your spot!
I’ll have a couple of different color combos to choose from. Bring your own tiny(1″) seashell if you have a special one! I brought this shell back from my daughter’s wedding last October that was in Charleston, SC. I’m sure Jenny & her husband will love having this memento of their special day!
