Happy Independence Day


Aloha Crafty Friends,

Happy Independence Day... who is playing in their craft room and who is gonna be at the beach, if none of these things, then what will you be doing?? We are just gonna be BBQing and being lazy at home. Plenty of my friends and family are camping overnight and BBQing at the beach... nah, I rather not. I like being home, where I don't need to walk very far to the bathroom, or be in the hot sun, hoping to find shade, or moving your chair to get outtah the sun... then there is the sand... ugh.... wish I had a pool, but I will have to settle for AC for now. 

Anyways, sharing with ya'll another card I created with MFT's Elephant set.  This is another CASED card. Found the idea off the web. These are too cute!!! I think I will make 1 or 2 more cards with this set, before moving on... These were stamped on water color paper, and colored with ZIG Watercolor Pens. 








Thanks for popping in, have a blessed day celebrating America's Independence!!!!



Aloha,
Jen

Creating Stamped Die Cuts On eCal and Cutting With The eClips2 Machine

Aloha Crafty Friends....  

I have been working on making die cuts of these adorable MFT Stamps on my eCal program and cutting them on my eClips2 machine!!! I did however purchase a BUNCH of die cuts already, and then I remembered.... duh, can easily make the cuts on the eCal!!! So for future stamps, I’ll have to remember that I no need buy the matching die cut sets anymore (for clear Stamps).




Stamps are all from My Favorite Things. Love them... they are SO CUTE!!! There was at one time tho', I remember back in the beginning days of my blogging days, these MFT stamps didn't even look like these. They were mostly stamps of body parts, usually a stamp from the next down. They weren't that cute, and I didn't take much interest in them. Now, they've come up with these adorable sets, so cute cute cute!!! I just can't get enough. So far, I try to be a part of every release, since March. LOL!!!  I still go on their website, and can find something that I NEED!! LOL!!!!

So Anyways, just wanted to show you all the dies I was able to cut on my eClips2 machine, took it less than 45 seconds to cut all of these!!! Amazing!!!! I cut these on 140# Water Color Paper. Eeeeeps!!!!!



LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Thank You, Lord!!! Such a wonderful feature, thank you eCal!!!! I heard you are able to do this same thing on the Silhouette/Cameo machine too, and I am sure on other machines. I'm just stoked that this saved me some serious buckaroos!!!! 

Last but not least, I am sharing a card with you. This is a CASED card, the background I used is an extra watercolor background technique from last month's crafty session.  I have 3 others that I need to use. These elephants are tooo cute!! They are from My Favorite Things. I'll make a few more cards with these. Hope your week is going well!!!! Enjoy tomorrow's holiday off.... Thanks for stopping by!!!




Aloha,
Jen

Worked On Some Kits

Aloha Crafty Friends,

So, I have been looking through my stuffs, and found some kits that I had purchased, and they weren't even put together yet!!! SO, my goal is to at least work on 1 kit per week, especially if they are card kits, because I need to really get them done. Hate that I bought them all and they are just sitting around.

This kit is from SU!, I have made 10 of these cards. I think there is actually 20 cards that could've been made with this kit. It was real quick n' easy and fun to put together, and I have decided to donate this set of finished cards to my friend's blog, Practical Family. If you haven't heard of it, please go and visit, and check her out. She has so many suggestions and advice about home schooling and raising children in a Godly home.





Now to work on the others... praying that you have a blessed week!!!

Aloha,
Jen

Lawn Fawn Golf Fathers Day Card and Clear Stamp Tip

Aloha Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing some cards I made with Lawn Fawn stamps. These were made for Father's Day and I had a tip to share. I know seasoned stampers already know this trick, so this one is for the newbies. First pics of the cards I created. I had these up at my church's coffee shop. Scroll down for the tip...





Some clear stamps come with a film over it that doesn't allow it's first impressions to be fully stamped (like you'll have some blotch spots). Simply take an eraser, and rub on to the surface of your stamp image, and then wipe off, re-ink and try again. I find that I need to do this with The Greeting Farm stamps and Lawn Fawn Stamps, so far.... My picture shows the top golf cart stamped before the eraser rubbing, and the bottom pic golf cart is after the eraser rubbing.
Also for those images that you've stamped, and didn't make a clear impression, simply use a black marker to fill in the blotches. I use Black Tombow, Black Sharpies, Precise V5 Black Pens to fill in some spots. So far, these have not bleed when I've tried them.


Top image: stamped BEFORE eraser rubbing
Bottom image: stamped AFTER eraser rubbing



Sweet... hope this tip was helpful to someone out there. :)


Aloha,
Jen

Note Book For Maria Bell and Happy Mail


This will be my last post for today (Aloha Friday), and then I will continue with catching this blog up with more posts come tomorrow. :) I have to finish up so that I can jump on my treadmill. Here I have a simple note pad that I covered up and gave to Maria as "Nice to Finally Meet You In Person" gift.



Products are from My Favorite Things. Funny, how back in the day, I wasn't a huge supporter of MFT. Now, I just love the stamps and products that they are coming out with. So CUTE and FUN to create with. This stamp set and die cut was part of one of my most recent Happy Mail Hauls. I got the Sunshine Die Cut for FREE since my order was over $60!! Thank You, MFT!!!  I made this note book cover with a flap that created a sweet little pocket. Maybe Maria can use it for a shopping list, and put coupons in the inside pocket. The sun is a shaker part, that I've added some glitter n' sequins to. Just to bring her a little smile through this bright and cheerful cover.

Here is a short video I took of this note book....



And as promised, here are some Happy Mail Hauls that I've had recently received.... so looking forward to playing with all of these..... Thank You, Lord!!




Thanks again for stopping by n' reading. Have a marvelous weekend!!!!

Aloha,
Jen
