Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii Challenge #4...Buttons!

Aloha all! The weekend is soon gone and another busy but wonderful week soon to begin. Hope your weekend was as beautiful as it was here, in Hawaii. Beautiful, beautiful weather.

Speaking of Hawaii, take a peek at this week's challenge on Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii. It's all about BUTTONS! Pop on over and see what the rest of the DT, has in stored for you. Then, come on and join in. There's a prize awaiting one lucky winner.

Here is my take on SSH's button challenge. This card was actually created prior to the challenge (like months ago) and given out as a RAK to some of LittleC's Glama Gurlz. The original (sorry no photo) was never posted on Heartful Stamping so I thought, "What better time to show case it, then through this button challenge!?!" So, I went to work and did a little adjusting to it. The original card was kinda more simplified with only two flowers and a dew drop. After the is what it looks like now.

The altered version has more flowers, ANA leaves, and of course, buttons.

"Tilda", flowers, and ANA leaves can all be purchased at LittleC's. Check them out and see the variety of products they carry, at such a great price.

Till the next time, I thank you for stopping by and blessing me with your visit. Have a wonderful week. Aloha and God bless

Stamp n' Scrap Featured "Aloha" Blogger...

Aloha all! Hope you're having a fabulous weekend. It's a beautiful day here in Hawaii. We're off and on our way to the "How To Walk" conference hosted by KLHT radio and Calvary Chapel Honolulu. Although there are lots of great speakers scheduled, I am so looking forward to hearing Greg Laurie and his awesome testimony, once again.

Before we leave out the door however, I would like to share with you, SSH's featured "Aloha" blogger. As Jen (LittleC's) would put it... Queen of HK projects..... Enjoli Bennett!!! Pop on over to her blog and you shall see why. Although there were many, many great creations by Enjoli that inspired me, here is the one I chose to work with...cupcakes.

I saw this "Box of Cupcakes" awhile ago on Inking Idaho and has always wanted to create one. What better time to bring out Enjoli's work, I thought. I wasn't sure as to how, I would decorate the cupcakes until I went and browsed through Enjoli's blog and, taadah...there it was, a perfect cupcake.

This box is a very good size, designed to hold 6-8 embellished cards and envies.

This is what it looks like from the top, looking into the box through it's cupcake shaped window.

Here's a set of (4) standard cards created just for this cute box. The inner side of the cards have also been stamped and colored. Sorry no photo

Well, it's time to head out the door. Thank you for stopping in, till the next time...Aloha and God Bless.

Gathering Island Style...

This past Saturday Teri (Big Ideas From a Little Girl) hosted an Island Girl event. A gathering to include some of the most talented, creative sisters on the island of Oahu. Omgosh, it was so much fun, laughter, prizes, projects, demos, bentos, AND...rootbeer floats! Although many of us have built our friendships through blogland, for several, it was the first time meeting in person. And yes, we had our "Wild" ones there too, whom I won't mention (KYOKO, DENISE, JOY, & LINDA-lol). But not to worry, the "Mellow" ones were also in the house like um...ME! (lol).

For my island sisters, I created this RAK, using an image from Dandelion Designs. It was a perfect fit for the theme I wanted..."Ladybugs". The candy holder was created using cricut's version of SU's Top Note and the idea, I cased from Dawn Easton (Treasure Oiler Designz)

A bunch of them...35 in counting.

Although two different sets were created, both consisted of yummy mints.

I feel so blessed to be a part of this fabulous group of women. All who attended and all who weren't able to make it, your friendship/sisterhood has blessed me immeasurably.

Mahalo to everyone who contributed to this awesome event. Every part of your efforts, was well appreciated. I cannot thank you enough. In addition, to all who attended, your presence made it more delightful. Thank you, thank you, thank you Teri for such a wonderful time. My daughter and I were truly blessed.

Stamp n' Scrap- Challenge #3

First of all, hope you all are having a beautiful Sunday. Up early, ready to make breakfast for my wonderful hubby and beautiful girls, then off to some great fellowship in the Can't wait to hear what Pastor Bill will be teaching today.

Wanted to share a real quickie with you. This week's SSH challenge is to create something using this color combo AND...using images from Dandelion Designs. Not only does DD have the cutest lil' images but, they were so generous in sponsoring this week's challenge. I hope you will be inspired to join on in and check out what SSH have in stored for you. While there, have a look at all the other creations by SSH's DT.

I chose to create, using DD's "Good Pals" image and this is what I came up with. Something really fast and so last minute (lol). Why do I wait until (almost) the very LAST minute...I dunno!?! I guess I like the rush...hee, hee j/k. Just in case you're wondering...a pink dog!?! our home we have pink dogs. Stuffed ones, that is (smile). Besides, I needed somehow to incorporate the color, what better way then to use the dog. The sentiment "Your friendship blesses me..." was computer generated. The note card(s) holder is cricut's version of SU's top note die and the tiny flowers were also cut using the cricut. I used CB embossing folders on the front of the holder and SU's slit punch to create the scallop edging. Each note card measures at 3x5.

I am very blessed by your visit today. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day with your family and friends. As always...Aloha and God bless!

Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Featured "Aloha" Blogger...

Aloha everyone and what a beautiful day in Hawaii, it is. Thank you Lord!

Just in case you haven't heard, let me bless you with this week's SSH's featured "Aloha" blogger. Please help me celebrate Chalsie of Paper Kisses. If you're not familiar with Chalsie's work by now, you MUST pop on over to her blog and check out the variety of ideas she has. You will be so inspired. I totally am!

Anyhow, for this week, the DT of SSH was challenged to share a part of Chalsie's work, that has inspired us. So with that being said, I share with you these cute cocoa holders/pouches which were fairly easy, quick, and fun to make. It'll be perfect for my 11 y/o's sleepover, soon to come. They will love it.

For now, I created a set of three...

Here is Mermaid Anya, sportin' some purple gems in her hair...

Next we have Angel Anya, with her silver (stickled) halo...

Last is Princess Anya, with her gold (stickled) crown...

A small tab was attached to the lower part of the inner pocket, which will be tucked over and through the slit on the front cover. Securing the whole pouch.

The inner pocket actually can hold a little more than just the cocoa packet. So we (my 11 y/o & I) decided to add a little bag of mini marshmallows (soon).

To check out the rest of the DT and their creations, please pop on over to Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii. Hope you'll be encouraged and...create, create, create. Till then, have a wonderful weekend, thank you for stopping in, and God bless! A L O O O O O H A....
