ICS Blog Hop Carried Away With Banners!

Today is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for the Inspire, Create Share Blog Hop!  I’m so excited to be part of this talented team!

We wanted to share some love with you this month so our theme is Happy Valentine’s Day!  We’ve just had our kitchen remodeled and I wanted to make a banner to hang up there…here it is:

Isn’t that fun?!!  I used the Banner Thinlits and the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration (FREE with any $50 order!).  If you look closely you’ll see some goodies from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (tassles, bow, ribbon).

My Big Shot finally kicked the bucket while I was making this project!  It has served me well for many years & been used & abused!  It has been groaning & making noises for a few weeks & actually spit some things across the room!  May it Rest In Peace!  I can’t get myself to throw it out yet.  I have to admit though, Sale-A-Bration is the best time for this to happen!  2 more FREE SALE-A-BRATION items!

Thanks for joining us this month and feel free to leave us some love in the form of comments!

Now hop on over to Terry’s blog and see what she has to share this month.

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!

Haunted House 3-D

create-with-cheryl-haunted-house

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring 3-D items!  I selected this page from Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper for the house because it’s a heavier weight of paper- and because it’s so cute with a shiny spider web!

Just so you know, Stampin’ Up! has Designer Series Papers (which happen to be on a special sale this month only!  Buy 3, get 1 FREE!).  These cost $11.00 for a pack.

“Specialty” Designer Series Papers cost $13 for a pack.  They always have 2 sheets of special- shiny- bling-y paper that’s especially pretty!  So now you know.

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!

Free Make & Take for Thanksgiving!

Last night we had our first Thanksgiving Make & Take and I want to show you the wonderful projects we made!

Francine's tissue holder

Project #1 was created by Francine and I just love it! It’s a small tissue holder and it’s really simple to make.  She’s used Into the Woods DSP from the holiday catalog for the pretty paper.

Francine is selling kits so that you can make these at home.  Just $10 for a kit that makes 5 holders (tissue not included).

Marylou's Curvy Box Turkey

Project #2 was created by Marylou.  Isn’t it adorable?!!  She’s used the Curvy Keepsake Box to make them, along with lots of punches.  Just add candy…

She has kits available for sale, also!  For just $10, you’ll be able to make 6 of these cute little turkeys.  I forgot to take a picture of his “back-side”.  That will be a surprise for you!

Thanksgiving pocket boxes

Project #3 was created by me.  You can choose to make either a candy box or a place-setting to decorate your Thanksgiving table.  I used the Pillow Box Framelit that is in the holiday catalog.

I also have kits available for $10 & you’ll have supplies to make 6.

We’re doing this same event again this Sunday, October 18th.

173 Hoohana #101 in Kahului behind Safeway.

Don’t miss it!!  Did I mention…IT’S FREE!

Please RSVP so that we have everything prepped!  Leave a comment to order kits to make at home.

Thanks for stopping by & hope to see you soon!

Kinda Eclectic for August

Createwithcheryl Aug 2015

 

Welcome to our August Calendar Mini-blog!  This month I’ve used Kinda Eclectic to make my page.  The leaves are so, so pretty!  You can see where I’ve stamped the leaf image first on top and then stamped again without re-inking.  The colors are Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder.

Haunted House

Spent the afternoon making a Haunted House!  What fun!Haunted House 1

Most of the things I used are retired…but I bought a bunch of those houses when they were on sale last year.  I did use our Halloween Washi Tape.  Time to make some candy boxes to go with this!

Epic Day with my daughters

Both of my girls were home for Mother’s Day, so we did some serious eating & crafting!  They each made a page for me in my Smash Book…

Malia's smash pageJenny's smash page

It was fun to see what the girls chose to highlight about their mom!  Of course, the pages also included coffee & chocolate & champagne!

We also spent time running soda cans through the Big Shot!Coke flowerCoke butterfly

Last thing we did was decorate a birdfeeder for Tutu.
