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!

Celebrate With Me!

I’m excited to tell you that I’ve been selected to be a part of the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation team!!  They are a group of very creative & talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that keep busy with fun ideas & challenges.  Be sure & click on the link HERE to see some of their ideas!

Today is my first official day as a team member & the theme today is Fourth of July (or red/white/blue).  I’m hosting a block party this weekend, so I came up with this little treat to give out.

SSINK 4th of Jul3

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were the perfect size for my Red Vines.  Yum!  I remember eating these at the movies when I was a kid.

Wish you could see the sparkle on the little swirls where I’ve swiped it with Wink of Stella!

SSINK 4th of Jul3

This bag, especially with the doily, makes me think of the banners on Makawao Avenue here on Maui.  Most people probably don’t realize this, but we have lots of cowboys (Paniolos) in Hawaii and a big rodeo is held each year on July 4th on my island of Maui.

Being a part of this team is a big challenge for me, and it’s sure to keep me stampin’!  My favorite thing to do!!  I’d appreciate comments any time!  Please subscribe to my blog via email (on the right bar of this page) so that you don’t miss anything!

You’re So Sweet

I had fun with everyone yesterday who came over to work on My Paper Pumpkin Projects!  Several ladies brought over a stack of their unopened boxes & others helped my with my stack.  We all loved how different the projects were… cards, boxes, journals, Candy holders…  FUN STUFF!

See the sparkle?  That’s from a new product I just love, called Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Just brush it on.  It dries immediately & the glitter stays put!

One final tip:  To mail these cute honeycombs, leave them closed with a note for the recipient to “peel & open”.  That way they don’t arrived squished!

Thanks for stopping by!
