Dream & Happy Mother's Day!

Please click HERE for Lawn Fawn and Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop. *********************************************************************************** Hello!  It's my last day to share Sister Stamps projects.  So sad!  I had a lot of fun playing with these cute new stamps.  Thanks again for the opportunity, Jenny!  I made a few projects with Haruyo.  Her costume reminds me of the ones worn by dancers during Okinawan performances.  See HERE for a picture.  My sister-in-law studies traditional Okinawan dancing and music so Haruyo reminded me of her and I also thought my in-laws would love this image.

I made this with 4 layers of thin cardboard I had lying around.  I added washi tape around the edges and just decorated the front.  I wanted the girls to look like they were dancing.

I also made a couple of simple Mother's Day cards.  Hopefully they will like them.  The sentiment and tags are from Papertrey Ink.

My last project was kind of an experi…

So sweet & So much joy

Hello again!  I am back to share more Sister Stamps cuteness.  These stamps will be available May 1st.  I think they are quite popular in Hawaii since they really appeal to all the local folks here.  I still remember trying to buy some of their stamps on a release day and the store was already sold out on some of them!  Today is Shin-Shin's turn to be in the spotlight.

Isn't she adorable?  My kids love her so much.  I made this for my daughter.  It holds a bunch of small post-it notes inside and I got it from our financial planner for my birthday.  They always send little gifts and I never know what to do with them since they are always covered with their photos and business names.  So I thought I'd alter it a bit so it would be cuter.  I added washi tape to the spine and paper and tags from Elle's Studio.  These little tags make crafting and card making so easy! 

Here's a little close up.

I also created a card with Shin-Shin.  All papers and tag are from Elle…

So Happy & So Lucky!

Hello!!!  It's me!  I get to Guest Design with Sister Stamps May release!  Woohoo!  Thanks, Jenny!  And look at these cuties this month.  Gotta totally love these girls and that cute little panda.  I really wondered what I should make and so I made a couple of things for today's post featuring Li-Li.

I made a CAS card because I love to showcase these cute images.  They are so fun to color and quick too.  I was wondering though what color a panda's tail is?  I even Googled it and I think it is mostly white.  I was kind of fixated on that for a while and had to search for the answer.  The circle tag and banner are from Elle's Studio.

A little close up of Li-Li but I realize that I forgot to rub on some color onto the panda's cheeks!

I also altered this mini composition book that I had still on my desk!  I wrapped the spine of the book with washi tape so it is still flexible.  The papers and circle tag are from Elle's Studio. 

I love the expression on the panda&…

Yumi and Fumi Challenge #14 reminder

Hello!  There is still time to enter Yumi & Fumi Handmade's Challenge #14 -- multiple folds.  I decided to make another flip card from this tutorial that I found HERE

I used Yumi with Birdie and added a sentiment (a little birdie told me) from CC Designs.  I think the grass might make the second half of the sentiment difficult to see.  Those corner dies I got from Lala Land Crafts.  I've been wanting some kind of corner dies for a while now so I finally caved and bought this one.  And the flowers were from Kim Yu.  She's so sweet to have sent me a whole bunch of flowers for my birthday.  Thank you!

This is the inside.  The sentiments are from Paper Smooches.

I hope you'll check out what Kim has made too!  It is an awesome card that I'll have to try.  It looks so neat!  Check it out HERE

Yumi & Fumi Handmade is also having a SALE until Monday so check it out before it's too late!  Don't forget about the Spread the Love event too!  Lots of prizes!

All That Scraps April Review

Please click HERE for Perfect Paper Crafting and Elle's Studio Blog Hop! ***********************************************************************************
Hello!  Today is review day at All That Scraps.  I'm sharing a card that features a sweet stamp called Mom's Heels from Drozy's Darlings.
Did you ever dress up in your mom's clothes?  I don't think I ever did but I do remember trying on heels.  Maybe that's way I love shoes way more than clothes.  Which reminds me that I really do need some new shoes soon.  Guess I'll have to go shopping.  Anyway, these pretty papers are from Wild Rose Studio.  I thought I would use them for Valentine's Day but then never got around to them.  The sentiment is from Webbie's Words Baby Cakes.
I added some Stickles to her wings and liquid pearls.  And I'm still using my latest Spellbinders dies.  I love this shape!
Thanks for stopping by!

More baby cards

Hello.  Yay, Friday!  Well, before the craziness of the weekend, I thought I'd post my last 2 baby cards.  It takes me a while to get around to writing these posts too...followed last week's sketch on Splitcoaststampers.

I forget what company this lion stamp is from as I threw away the packaging, but it was a boy baby/child clear stamp set on clearance a long time ago at Michaels.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  The papers are also kind of old, Heidi Grace from Joanns.  The scallop border is a MFT die-namics.
Same basic layout for this card, except I left the scallop border a little longer since it was uneven on the previous card.  Stamps are from Paper Smooches.  Paper is DCWV Nana's Nursery, also bought a long time ago that I never got around to using for its original purpose of a baby scrapbook.  Cardstock is Papertrey ink.

This was the original sketch, I changed the last rectangle to a scalloped circle.

Well, have a great weekend!

All That Scraps April Review

Hello!  Here's a card I created for All That Scraps review of CC Designs' April stamps.

This is 'Stache Monkey.  Still love that mustache!  I stamped lots of mustaches in the background from For My Guy.  The sentiment is also from For My Guy.  I love this Grunge Tag too.  It's actually a bit longer but I did some partial die cutting to cut it shorter to fit my card. 

I wanted to say thank you for all the fun birthday cards and well wishes!  I had a relaxing day eating lots of food.  Though my most favorite thing was taking a nap without worrying about picking up kids or cooking dinner or something.  Peace of mind for a couple of hours.  Maybe I worry too much? 

Thanks so much stopping by!


Hello.  Quick post to get my card into the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Challenge.  Technically it's their 4th birthday, not 40th, but close enough, right?
 Slightly larger than usual card to fit the MFT Die-namics doily on there.  The numbers were 7 gypsies stamps, punched out with Marvy punches.  Flowers stamps/dies, and sentiment stamp are from Papertrey Ink.
I actually decorated the inside too which I don't usually do, but I stamped the flowers about a bazillion times trying to get them lined up straight plus I had to try all the stamps in the set so not all the flowers could fit on the front.
