Yoshimi Frame

Hello Everyone!  Did you miss me?  I've been crazy busy with family matters, another Sister Stamps release, and getting ready to go to CHA!!! Woo hoo!  Anyway, just thought I'd pop on in before my upcoming trip to say "hi" and share this project.  I don't know if you remember, but I mentioned earlier that I had made some frames using our new images... Here's one of the frames I made... I'm finally able to share it with you since Yoshimi has now been released!  Yay!  I hope you like her as much as I do.  I was so happy my sis decided to make an image using fans. 

Well, I'm off to bed, but will be dreaming of what I gotta do for my trip.  I'm hoping me and sis can brainstorm some ideas for upcoming releases!  Can't wait to spend some sister time together.

One of my friends who participated in my craft fair- Jen, also made calendars this year. This time she made these cute wall calendars. Since they were Sister Stamps, I snatched them up without knowing who to buy them for! Then I remembered that we didn't get anything for Akemi's Sensei's, and I knew these would be perfect! Since Jen only had 2 left and I needed 3, I had to make one more. I wanted each teacher to have the same thing, so I copied her design- thanks Jen for the inspiration! Here's what I came up with.. Such a fast and fun project!

Teacher Gift

Happy New Year! I know, it's been awhile since my last post. I've been away for a bit taking care of some family business, but I'm back now and wanted to share a few more projects that I worked on for Christmas. Every year, I make Akemi's teacher a calendar for Christmas. I was sorta hoping that I'd have some leftovers from my craft fair, but I didn't, so I had to whip this one up at the very last minute. I mean I did this calendar the night before her last day of school before winter break! Talk about procrastination! Anyway, luckily had had leftover DCWV school stack (4x6 size) paper left, so it didn't take long to choose the papers I wanted to use. Since I kept everything simple this year, it didn't take long to put it together... until I came to the top of the calendar... Hmmmm.... had a hard time figuring out what I was going to do. Think, think, think... what do you think of when you think of teachers or school? Apples of course! Since my last episode with my cricut was still fresh in my mind, I decided to use my handy dandy spellbinder dies instead. Found my old apple set and cut out this apple. Then I make it kawaii-style by adding in a cute face. I couldn't resist making it have a big 'ol smile! Scroll down for the rest of the calendar... I hope Akemi's teacher liked it! Be back soon with more teacher gifts.
