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!

I love banners. I love making them… I love stamping them… They are so festive. So, for August, and the ‘title page’ to the calendar, I decided to make a little banner… This uses the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set (the ‘you made my day’ image) and Banner Blast (now retired, so sad…)… But, these little banners are so fast and fun…
And, I love the Smokey Slate color with the pastels used on the banner. Makes you think of calm, cool, and breezy in a month that could be very warm. Helping you to have your own mini vacay… even if it is just for a moment in your imagination.

Hello MARCH! What a glorious little birdie to welcome March!
These stamp are all from a hostess stamp set called “Hello Love”. It’s one of my favorites. And, for those of you buried in snow, it’s a good little reminder that spring is on it’s way. Here on Maui, we had a bout of winter weather today. Our winter weather. (It rained all day). I do love Maui winters.

Welcome Back!! And, Happy Back to school. It is AUGUST! Where has the summer gone??
Well, with this month I’m particularly happy about because it features one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE stamp sets. TAPE IT. It’s a stamp set that looks like WASHI TAPE. Be still my heart. I”m still a bit of a newbie when it comes to the uses of washi tape, but it is becoming one of my all time favorites…. ANYWAY, having the stamp set allows you to do more things… you can stamp over text, etc… and make it in any color.
Hope you Enjoy August. And, peek on by Anne and Cheryl’s blogs to see what goodies they have for you!
