Today's Special

Aloha all,

 Thanks for stopping by today and if you're joining me again, I am happy to have you back.

Kadoodle Bug Designs has these "Shoptastic Cuties" in the store and apparently these cuties are all the rage right now. Not quite sure what they are but as soon as I saw the Shoptastic Cutie-Teacup I just knew I had to combine it with the Cutie Kadoodle-Teacup Panda.

Of course, I had to take it one step further and make my panda pink as well.
The base of my card is actually a step fold card and the sentiment for this card is from Hero Arts, "Today's Special". I have to admit, I purchased this stamp set last year around Valentines so it may no longer be available for purchase.
The rolled roses is actually a die from Memory Box, Small Pinwheel Posie. The doily was created using vellum and  Cheery Lynn's, French Pastry doily die.

Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you all have a scrappy day!

Soak Up the Sun!

Aloha everyone,

Mahalo for stopping by. Pineapples and flamingos are all the rage right now and as soon as I saw the cute pineapple freebie in the KBD store I just knew I had to create something with it.
Here on Oahu we actually have pineapple fields and we used to be the only state in the U.S. that grew pineapples. Thank goodness we still grow coffee here. If you come to Hawaii, you simply have to make sure to try our coffee.

Here is my version of the cute pineapple freebie and it can be found here.
The cute little starfish on the surfboard is another KBD file found here. This file is so cute as it has two more starfish characters included.
I just love the palm tree and sun from the Beach Fun Penguins file found here.  I must admit I did add eyes to my sun and those eyes came from the CK Sunshine Bears sun found here.
The cute hibiscus border was an absolute must to complete my card and was purchased in the Silhouette online store.
My silhouette sketch pen was used to help create the sentiment. Just love the ability to make my own sentiments instead of always having to rely on stamp sentiments. If you have pens for your electronic cutter, please give them a chance. What a way to save some craft money.

Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you all have a crafty day.

Aloha everyone!

Mahalo for stopping by today. My latest project is inspired by the many flamingo cards I have seen flooding my Pinterest wall. Kadoodle Bug Designs has two flamingo files on sale at 90% off due to going into retirement and what a score for me!

The flamingo used for this card comes from the file, "Paradise Found" but "Endless Summer" is a fantastic file as well. You can never have enough flamingos.
While you're there, don't forget to grab this week's freebie. It's adorable! 

To help create my scene, I had a little help from the "Summer Beach Fun" to create my beach and palm trees. The pineapple is from the Silhouette Online Store,
Design ID #89517
I found a free font called, "Adefebia" to type Aloha on front of the pineapple and proceeded to do a print and cut. Love that feature.
The frame of my card comes from Mama Elephant's, "Framed Cuts-Madison Avenue". The border frame is too cute and is a must have to have in your die stock.

Mahalo for stopping by and as usual, I hope you all have a crafty day!
