Scrappy Moms Stamps!

Aloha Everyone,
Today I am sharing a project made with the Scrappy Moms Stamp set Proudly Canadian!  
These stamps have some very cute saying, but I was not sure what all of them meant so I made my card subway art style, with a maple leaf action wobble to give it some dimension.

Birthday Gift!

Aloha Everyone,
The other day we were invited to a birthday party.  The party was for a one year old boy.  I wanted to give a present, but what?  He has an older brother 2 years apart so he probably had all the toys that he needed.  So I went blog hunting...  I looked around on one of my favorite blogs The crafty cupboard and found this tutorial for these adorable farm friends.  Here's the link
They were so fun to make.  Even my kids wanted to keep them.  Mine look a bit off.  Like my cow looks like a black and white dog, and my piggy is sort of crooked.  Lol!  They are still cute and my friend said her son loved them.  She was very thankful for the personalized gifts.  I also made a freeze paper stencil tote to put the gift in.

Aloha Everyone,
Here in Hawaii Graduation is a very big deal.  They have a 5th grade, 8th grade, high school and even preschool graduation.  There a tons of leis given, balloons, banners, you name it, it is there. 
Anyway... My son graduated this year and I wanted to show one of the many lei that I made for him.
It is a money lei.  I made it with quarters.  $25 dollars worth of quarters.  I don't have step by step pictures but it is very easy to make.
Here is a awesome tutorial that I used to make my coin money lei.

Boy by the date of my last post what happened?
These past months have been busy.  My son Graduated from High School, he also received his Eagle Scout Award.  There have been many birthdays, we had a prom, baptism and now summer swim lessons.  Yee Haw!
I got VERY side tracked from my blog.  I now know why people have guest bloggers!  It so your blog stays up to date. Lol! I have been knitting, and sewing lots, and my paper addiction has been pushed to the side for now.

I am so bad about taking pictures of the projects I make, so I am going to leave you with a picture of my family.

Haunted House

Aloha Everyone,
I wanted to share with you my Haunted House that I made for some Halloween Decorations!

This is cut from the Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge.  I cut it on the large 12 x 24 paper, so it was cut at 10 1/2 inches.  I embossed everything to add texture and a more real feel. 

It was fun and my kids were pretty impressed!

Scrappy Moms Stamps- Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

Aloha Everyone,
I have been missing from the blogging world, and miss being here.  I had a crazy last couple of weeks with broken cars, and things that have occupied my days, that are not fun.  Anyway!

I wanted to share my project that I made for the Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  Stop by Scrappy Moms Stamps and see all the other awesome projects!                                     The challenge was to use the Mini Monster cartridge.  I bought it last year and this is the first time I am using it.  I have loved it, but didn't have enough time to play with it last year.   I was so excited for this challenge because it gave me a heads up on Halloween.  
I cut out pretty much all of the monsters from the handbook.  I attached tooth picks on the backs of them so I can use them for adorable cupcakes decorations for a Halloween party.  I cut the monsters at 2 1/2 inches.  I added  stickles, and some of them I used goggly eyes.  

I wanted to make cupcakes and show them off,  but just couldn't get around to it, so please use your imagination!!!

Have a Great Week!

I Heart Faces!

I am entering my son's Football picture at I Heart Faces photo challenge.
He didn't take a picutre with his team on picture day and I was so upset.
He said "no worries momma, I will bring home my gear and you can take pics". I am glad we did and I think he loved how they came out.
