Spring Blog Hop!

I’m excited to participate in a blog hop today with the Borderline Buddies…this time from a border quite far away!  Maui!

The theme is SPRING!  That gets me thinking flowers & butterflies, which I noticed all around me as I took my walk this morning.

I’m lucky to live on Maui, where flowers bloom year-round!

I made a card using a unique fold I’ve been wanting to try out:

Spring Blog Hop (2)

Isn’t this a fun fold?!  Found the directions on Linda Bauwin’s blog.  Check it out- she has some great videos!!  The stamp sets used are Flower Patch & Feel Goods and the DSP is Botanical Gardens DSP.  Colors are Pool Party & Hello Honey.

Had to make a little box to match my card:

Spring Blog Hop (3)

This is the Curvy Keepsake Box…my favorite little candy box!  Stamped it with some flowers from Flower Patch then cut out a flower with Floral Frames Framelits, made a slit in the flower & slid it over the handle.  Thought it needed something else, so I added a clothespin & stuck on a llittle butterfly.  Here’s a close up so you can see the pearls:

I’m also entering my projects in Stampin’ Royalty SR#324.Wear Our Badge

The theme is “Anything Goes!!”

 

Spring Blog Hop (4)

I love this project & I’m pretty sure my club members will love it too!  Club is this weekend- 2 dates to choose from:  Saturday, 2pm at my house in Haiku or Sunday, 1pm at Linda’s house in Makawao.  Guests always welcome!  You just need to make a $25 order, and the project is free.  Please RSVP.

Now hop on over to see what Leanna & Susan have come up with for “Spring”!  And thanks, again, for including me in your Borderline Buddies Blog Hop!

Special Card for New Downline!

I’m very excited to add a new person to my team… Deni Kawauchi!  She’s been a SU Demo in the past and just wanted to get back into stamping!  She found me on line and I’m so glad she did!

Here’s a special card I made to welcome her to the team:

Special Card for Downline

Card in a Box is my favorite card to make when I want to “WOW” someone!  This one is filled with flowers from Flower Patch Stamp Set and cut out using Flower Fair Framelits.  See those new pearls?  Those are Metal Rimmed Pearls in the new Holiday Catalog.

Special Card for Downline (2)

Let me know if you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator!  Some do it to have their own business, but most sign up just to get that wonderful 20 – 25% discount on all their Stampin’ Up! products!  We get together every 2 months to swap, share ideas, make something new or learn a new technique, & always eat!

By the way, I’ll be having a CARD IN A BOX CLASS after the holidays!  Who’s interested?  If you are, please post a comment!  CLICK HERE to see some of the ones I’ve made in the past.

Thanks for stopping by…
