I sent Abe a 3 month subscription of My Paper Pumpkin & this is what he wrote on Facebook: “I just finish my finals and I came home and was just going to go to bed and then I get this Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail from my Auntie Cheryl.
Now I am going to make stuff. It is so great and I am feeling crafty. hahahaaa”
Please ADD YOUR COMMENTS to this post to congratulate Abe on this huge accomplishment!! I’ll send your good wishes on to him!
It’s always a challenge to make “manly cards”. Last night I opened my new package of Moonlight DSP Stack (in the new catalog available June 2) and LOVED IT!! There are so many possibilities…the colors are beautiful and the patterns are modern and vintage-mixed. Here’s the first card I came up with:
The only DSP you can see is the stripe on the right side. Lost Lagoon (new In Color) is my new favorite color!! The ship from The Open Sea is embossed in white. This would make a nice birthday or Father’s Day card.
Stamps: The Open Sea
Colors: Crumb Cake (5 1/2 X 7 1/2), Lost Lagoon (3 X 5 1/4), Sahara Sand
I have been seeing this Card in a Box idea all over Pinterest and just love it!! Anne and I have come up with a class for you, so that you can make one too!
Sunday, March 30, 2014 1 to 4:30pm
Maui Lodge, 190 W. Kamehameha Avenue, Kahului
Cost: $20 paid by March 15; $23 if paid after that date
Includes: Everything you need to make all 3 projects including your very own full box of Glue Dots! Chocolate egg is included; shreddies and plastic eggs are not 🙂 DSP is Watercolor Wonder from the Occasions catalog but patterns will vary.
We’re really excited about these projects – and we think you will be too! Hurry and sign up to reserve your spot in class…space is limited!
You’ll have your choice of this floral option or a bunny version:
So much fun, and every one comes out a little differently. You’ll also be making a Tag-a-Bag-Box with the Spiral Flower.
Your box will be fully embellished, but we will leave it up to you to fill it.
Our last project features the new Scallop Tag Topper punch from the Occasions catalog.
This is guaranteed to be a great afternoon, and I hope you’ll join us!
After losing several items I needed to use for my Candlelight Christmas Class this weekend, I’m on a mission to clean up my “Craft Closet of Chaos”! Guess what I found? Some Christmas bags from last year’s class…prepped, but not put together. Come on, I’m sure some of you can relate…
Here’s the finished bag with some current updates:
I’m not sure why I ordered this stamp set, Open Sleigh, because it’s not really my style, and I live in Hawaii where there’s not a lot of sledding going on. But I absolutely love it! You know how some sets just stamp perfect images? This is one of those. And last year we didn’t have those marvelous framelits!! So many possibilities! The colors are Cherry Cobbler & Marina Mist.
Back to cleaning. I’ll probably find the Valentine’s Day pile next!
