Made a Get Well Card to match.  Watch what happens when the card is opened…

Isn’t that cute?!!  Simple, too!

Jar of Love for April

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.

 

2 Step Stampin’ for March

The simplest way I know to make a quick but beautiful card is to use a stamp set that lets you 2-Step Stamp!  Simply layer one image over another using different colors!

You cannot buy this stamp set.  But you can get it FREE during Sale-A-Bration by placing a $50 order!  Sale-A-Bration runs through March 31st, so don’t wait too long!

The colors are Calypso Coral & Dapper Denim.  The little butterfly is found in one of my favorite sets, Butterfly Basics.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure & head over to Anne & Crystal’s blogs to see their March calendars.  And leave us a comment 🙂  We love those!

Home Decor Project- Seascape Framed Art

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!

 

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.

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.

create-with-cheryl-haunted-house-2

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!

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.
