Such a busy time!

Today is the last day of the Stampin' Up! physical year.
And it has been so busy!
I realized that I have not had a chance to blog!

And then add to that my 15 year old grandson has been here visiting me for a month from Texas.

I sure have enjoyed him being here!  

I have loved sharing with him things in Arizona that he doesn't get to experience!  Like the sunrises here!

I have been working on my July Online Card Class!
you can check it out on this short video what cards they will be making!  The video didn't quite load the way I made it but so watch thru all of the samples of the cards then you will hear me talking!  Gotta love technology right?

In July we are using the Watercolor Wings Stamp set and matching Framelits

Hawaii Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Well as expected Hawaii was amazing!
Stampin' Up! spoiled us with many things but mostly our Pillow Gifts!
My husband and I both received a pair of Maui Jim's sunglasses the first night!

The cases were in this cute little bag that had a sentiment attached to them!
Here are mine.  I forgot to take a picture of hubby's!

This was our view the entire week from our 
hotel room balcony!  I really miss this view!

So this hop is for a Pillow Gift Inspiration!  I received this little makeup bag from Hawaiian Quilt company.   

I am always up for a challenge but "stitching" with my paper piercing tool was a challenge.
Hard to make it look as pretty as the bag I received!!!

I have just never been a seamstress!  LOL!
I used the 1 inch circle punch to make the leaves.
The Fun Flower Punch for the flowers.
The colors I used were Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze.

Thank you for stopping by!
You came from Shannon's blog

ICS Blog Hop Celebrate Dad

Father's Day is coming!

Whether you celebrate with your Father 
or anyone that you know that is a 
Father this is a cute card!

You can even change the sentiment 
for other occasions, such as Birthday 
when you need a Manly Card!

I know for me Manly cards can be hard to make!

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator we receive 
a magazine every two months called 
Stampin' Success.  It features tips and tricks for 
Demonstrators.  Love this magazine!

The most recent one had this cute card 
for Father's Day.  However, It didn't have the 
instructions so I had fun figuring out how to make it!

I made several of them as a matter of fact!

Notice the scraps of paper I used for the pocket?

I also used a scrap of paper for the "thread" in the button!

For the insert this is how I made it.

You have to have an Envelope Punch Board to make this card!!!
Cut the cardstock 7 7/8" x 7 7/8" for the Vest.

I also just had to make a video 
I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!
Now head on to the next Blog for some more Inspiration!
