Honu straw bag class

Time sure has been flying by! Here is the sample for this Saturday's class. We will be creating a straw bag with quick matching cards. Many years ago, I taught a similar class. Well, I have expanded the dimensions. This little bag will hold A2 size cards and other goodies.

Cost of the class is $23. It will be held on Saturday, March 26 from 1:30 p.m. To 4:30 p.m. In Kailua.
Please bring the following supplies to class:

Paper trimmer, scissors, pencil, scoring tool (I.e. Scor-pal), corner rounder, adhesive (liquid and tape), dimensional tape. If you wish to bring your own ink pads and daubers, we will be using a dark blue ink and soft orange ink pads.

Please RSVP your space to myself or to Bill. I will only be making enough kits. Hope to see you there!!

A tea-rific birthday!

This is my third gift this year of a tea cup and saucer filled with a goumet Neopolitan cupcake. The 3x3 card made from SU's Elements of Style stamp set was embossed in gold. A Perfect match!

Cracked Effect

 I made this in October for my tea swap partner, Carla.  I believe it was called the Crackle effect or something like that.  It's been a while.  The vintage tea stamp was perfect for this effect, I think.

Closer shot.

Hinamatsuri Day!

Several weeks ago I did a make and take at Celebrations in Mapunapuna. I decided to make some as gifts for the office girls. The kokeshi are erasers. First we hot glued all the loose pieces of her body together then we placed screws on the top of her head and I added the key rings. Here, I cut some tags from sizzix, Inked
A Sakura stamp by dandelion designs and colored it in with copics. A touch of glitter in the middle of the flower and that was it. I think I'll just put them in plastic bags and consider them ready for gift giving!
