Spring Flowers!

Standard

 

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!image

 

 

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…  imageAnd spring always makes people ‘happy happy’!

Anne and Cheryl have some exciting things for you today!

Beeeeee mine

Beeeeee mine

 

 

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…

Happy WONDERFUL Christmas

Standard

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!!image

 

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!

Blessings

Standard

Ahhhh…. November. Thanksgiving.  One of my favorite holidays.  I like it because it doesn’t have all the hustle that surrounds Christmas.  And it gives us a moment to pause, and count our blessings…image

This stamp set came with the Gratitude for Days Kit from last year’s occasion’s mini catalog.  So again, it is retired…

image

I hope you have a chance to rest and enjoy this month before all the busyness.  I seem to be overwhelmed with busyness as of late, and need this little reminder to be thankful…

A Hawaiian Fall….

Standard

September is HERE!!  That means school is in full swing and we are looking forward to fall.  Well, on Maui, fall isn’t fall like it is elsewhere, but it does mean a little cooler temperatures (hopefully!!).  Anyway, given my love for all things fall and the fact that Maui doesn’t really have your typical fall, I chose to stamp these little flowers in fall colors…to kind of meld the two!!image

They vague look like some of the tropical flowers (well, ok, not really…you REALLY have to use your imagination) and the Cajun Craze is the perfect fall color to be part of the mix.  Hope you are planning crisp evenings at football games and hot cider and hay rides and bonfires and cozy sweaters…  (those are all the things I LOVE about fall…)image

August

Standard

Happy August!!

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…

imageAnd, 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.

Flowers in June

Standard

June is perfect for cheery flowers! And this is a supper cute little flower patch!!  (That’s actually the name of the stamp set!!  Flower Patch!)  I always have grand visions of making cute little gardens in the summer… but I never do it… at least in an actual garden.  I much prefer to garden on paper.  These flowers never die.

I love these flowers… they’re so easy to make a cheerful collage on calendars or cards.  Enjoy!

O May, O May

Standard

The Merry Month Of May…

To a school teacher, this month is full of anticipation of lazy summer days full of relaxation. However, the actual month itself is CRAZY BUSY.  Especially a school teacher of high school seniors.  So, in efforts to help maintain calm, and remind me of the lazy summer days, I chose this serene flower set…  It’s perfect for Mother’s Day too!!

image

This set is called “Bloom With Hope” and it’s a hostess set for the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Which, if you LOVE the set, you only have a month left to host a party and get it before it is gone forever….

Well, happy May to you and may you also have dreams of lazy summer days ahead…

I know pink and hearts are a little cliche for Valentine’s but I couldn’t resist.  I love this little rain cloud.  It’s so sweet…

I used a hostess stamp set from the 2014-14 Idea Book and Catalog called Hello Love.  It’s a fun little set.  Has lots of various images to do different things.  Spoiler Alert:  You will see this set again in the calendar series…  🙂
