#SSINKCC40 Pineapple in the Window

ssinkcc40-create-with-cherylStylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation has a Color Challenge today!  And I’m loving these colors!!  Old Olive.  Flirty Flamingo.  Sahara Sand.

I haven’t made a Window Card in a while, & they’re one of my favorites!  So I went for a Hawaiian Window Theme.

I’ll list the ingredients here:

  • Botanical Blooms
  • Pop of Paradise
  • Hearth & Home Thinlits
  • Botanical Builder Framelits
  • Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Wink of Stella Gold
  • Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please leave me a comment & let me know what you think of my card…  What’s in your window this time of year?  What’s actually in my window is lots of avocados & lilikoi!!  Making more lilikoi jelly this week and lots of guacamole… lucky me!

Now head on over to the SSINK Page & see what the other girls have made using these gorgeous colors!

I must have found the Aloha stamp on Oahu.  It’s cut out using Flower Fair Framelits.

I think Stampin’ Up! needs an Aloha stamp, don’t you?!

I do see a very cute Pineapple Stamp is coming in the new catalog!!  Can’t wait!


Card in a Box Class Results!


Yesterday I had my last Card-in-a-Box Class!  Here everyone is hard at work…


Thought you’d enjoy seeing how everyone’s projects turned out!  I have such a creative group!!










Isn’t it fun to see how everyone put their own spin on the box?!!  You should see my craft room!!  Not good!  But we had so much fun!  Thanks to everyone who came!

Botanical Blooms

I love this card…mainly because of that sweet curvy leaf cut!  I made that using a  new framelit called Botanical Builder Framelits.

Brand New Journal for 2016!

createwithcheryl 2016 journal

I made this brand new journal last week & hope to use it all year.  My friend & upline, Anne, came over & we crafted & brainstormed.  My word for this year is FOCUS.  I tend to overschedule myself and get stressed out.  I’m hoping I can FOCUS on the thing I’m doing, or on the person I’m with.

I’m mainly thinking about my mom.  She lives in my cottage & has recently stopped driving.  So that means she depends on me a  lot.  Sometimes trips into town with her take a long time & I’m impatiently thinking of all the other things I need to be doing.  I’ll bet a lot of you would love to have this problem & have your  mom with you!  I’m so fortunate to have my mom close by!

Be present.  Or be a present to the person I’m with.


Don’t you LOVE those letters?!!  They’re in the new catalog!!  There’s a stamp set & Framelit Bundle (save 15%) and it’s just in time for Sale-a-Bration!

Stock up on these journals now!  They’re in the Clearance Rack on sale for just $4.39!  That’s over 50% off!
