I LOVE decorating for Christmas (hate putting it away, but that is another post for another time). When I saw this Season of Whimsy stamp set (2017 Holiday Catalog, host only stamp set), I KNEW I had to have it. And, as a host only set, I had to strategically plan how I was gonna be able to earn it. Hee Hee….
These ornaments are SO fun. And they work perfectly for the watercolor wash look that is so popular right now (And, SO easy to do, because it doesn’t have to be perfect at all.
I chose traditional Christmas colors here (old olive and real red) and used crumb cake paper backing. It’s fast and simple.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas season. I hope you get to spend time making things (gifts, cookies, Christmas cards…). These are the most fun times!

TO ORDER AN EASEL CALENDAR:
Happy March! Can’t believe it is nearly spring break. As a teacher, every month has it’s highlight and for March, it’s most definitely spring break.
So. The name of this stamp set is Ready to Pop. And it has this awesome little border stamp that works so perfect here. And the little punch (sorry, it’s retired) adds just the right flowers for some sweet sprintime blooms. The paper is blushing bride and the ink is pear pizzazz.

So, when we got the color Flirty Flamingo, I fell in love with it immediately. It’s the perfect mix between pink and coral and perfectly cheerful. And, I’ve always been attracted to this Kinda Eclectic stamp set, but never really sure of what to do with it. Until the color and the calendar came along…
And BAM. You have a butterfly flying in the sunset. Hee Hee… I like the look of a bold color with a very neutral and graphic background.
When it comes to card making (and calendars) I feel that I am being drawn more and more to simplicity in both color and design.

Classic Christmas images… Stockings on the mantle… Love it…
Festive fireplace gives the perfect stamps and framelits to make that image come to life on paper! As we head into the Christmas seasons, I hope you can reflect on happy memories and make new ones this year.Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
If you’ve been following these little calendar posts, you will probably have noticed that I am a FAN of the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (and coordinating framelits). HUGE FAN.
So, It was a no-brainer when trying to decide what to use for October… And, the corrugated cardstock!! LOVE IT. The background lines are from the Chalk Lines stamp set… You notice, that cover for the calendar is the same everything…just a different background paper color… Head on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
Oh Happy Day!! July 4th is definitely a happy day! It is when we can reflect on the freedoms we so enjoy…. and it also gives us time to pause and reflect on how we earned that freedom… by the sacrifice of so many… past and present… I am so thankful…
This little Banner Banter set is perfect for little flags. I LOVE banners… So festive.Spend some time with those you love enjoying the freedoms we have… and remember to thank someone who continues to sacrifice so we can enjoy those freedoms…

To a teacher, the arrival of June always means the arrival of relaxation, lazy days, and sweet, sweet summer. (well, with littles, that’s not always the case, but life IS less hectic during the summer).
So, I love using this leaf stamp from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (now retired) in a bit of a ‘non-traditional’ way (pinks???). But, I love it!! It’s cheerful and bold and fun… all that summer is. Head over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!
I’ve lived in Hawaii long enough that I am now able to recognize the subtle change in seasons. (I admit, the first couple of years, I really couldn’t tell much difference.) And, although there isn’t the drastic vision of a tulip emerging from the cold ground as a sign of spring on it’s way, that idea of spring flowers still seems to be a ‘March’ image in my mind. SO…. I just had to use these flowers for March!
These are from the Garden in Bloom stamp set. It’s a 2 step set, so it is super easy to get the insides and outsides of the flower 2 different colors.
And, that little stapler will continue to be one of my most favorite tools. It’s perfect for attaching the banner punch out here… And spring always makes people ‘happy happy’!
Anne and Cheryl have some exciting things for you today!
I love this little bee!! It has such a cheery smile… so it was a MUST for this February Post.
The stamps are from the Honeycomb Hello stamp set. The little polka dot hexagon background adds the perfect amount of texture and color to the page… And, of course, you cannot forget the bling in the heart punch-out…
Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you! And, happy Valentine’s Day to you!
I LOVE WREATHS. Especially fresh ones. Except where we live, we can’t buy it very early cause it won’t last long… And, even fake ones take a beating on my front door (it gets direct sun for much of the day). BUT… not ones on PAPER!! This Wondrous Wreath stamp set is SO much fun to work with!!
And, with the photopolymer stamps, it is SO easy to line up the layers of the wreath to make the different colored leaves and berries! Lots of fun to make!
Happy Christmas Decorating to you! Hope you are able to spread cheer wherever you go. And, have a Happy WONDERFUL Christmas!
