Baby Shark 1st Birthday

Created this paper pieced project using an SVG cut file I found online. This child loves the Baby Shark song, so I wanted to make a shark card, and found so many cute n' cheap shark cut files. I ended up getting a shark set with a bunch of different sharks, and I thought that was the best thing to do to get the best of my bucks.

Here's how the cuts look like before cutting them out on my eClips machine:

I used Distressed Oxide for the background, and a RG Avenue sentiment. I thought it turned out totally adorable!!!



Thanks for reading!

Aloha,

NEW Release from RG Avenue and Barely Awake Stamp Set

Aloha All!! RG Avenue is now releasing monthly releases. Which is awesome, because weekly releases were putting a toll to my pocketbook. Anyways, here's what was recently released. 9 stamp sets, of which one of them is offered as a digital only, everything else you can get as a stamp set AND/OR a digital stamp set.


Here are some cards I created using the stamp set "Barely Awake". These adorable bears make great Father's Day cards... some of the sentiments were made by me. I have them for purchase here.








Thanks for stopping in... I hope to be able to create more samples using these stamp sets again soon.

Aloha,
Jen

Colossians 2:14


Happy Resurrection Week!! Did some bible decorating on Monday when I woke up, as I was reminding myself of the sacrifice Jesus did on the cross for me, because God loved us so much, he had his son die on the cross for our sins. He wants us all to go to heaven, but heaven is not a place for "good people", heaven is a place for "perfect people", therefore, with Jesus being the sacrificial lamb for our sins, he took that place to make us perfect for entering into heaven. I put Jesus on the cross... my sins... a humble reminder...



What I used:

  • Sweet n' Sassy Alphabet Stamps; The Good News stamp set
  • Distressed Oxide Ink: Wild Honey
  • Unity Stamp: Dandelions 
  • Illustrated Faith Die Cuts n' 9" x 12" Spiral Bible

Aloha,
Jen

Birthday Fishes


Sharing 2 cards today, both created with the same stamp set... I was gonna make them exactly a like, but I like that I made them slightly different just by moving the images around. This first card was created for my GodDaughter who turned 11 last week. I loved the card so much, that I made another one!! ;)



Here is the 2nd card.... background on both were created using Distressed Oxide inks, and splattering some water on to it, causing it to react the way it looks in the pic. 



Images were colored with Copic Sketch Markers and I made the die cuts on my eCal program, cutting out with my eClips2 machine.

Aloha,
Jen

Showering You with Love

Created this card for a momma-to-be!! I attended her shower last week... cuper cute images to play with. These images are from Hello Bluebird. The die cuts are from MFT Stamps, tho'. The white cardstock is a little wonky, cause it's cheap cardstock from WalMart... lol! 



Colored with copic sketch markers, background made with Distressed Oxide Inks... that's all folks!


Aloha,
Jen

Stages Of The Making of Money Leis


Aloha Gang!! Happy Tuesday. Today I am sharing some images of how I make money leis... I only took this 1 order this year, since I'm quite busy with visiting my grand baby, I didn't want to commit to too many personalized orders. However, these are for family, so I couldn't NOT do them, right?? Anyhow... here's how I create them...

Braid the leis with ribbon....

Fold each bill accordion style... 

Attach 2 bills together with tape and add a ribbon to the middle for decor. 

 Tie rosette flowers to braided ribbon leis...

 Completed leis... colors: Green & Gold... sent to Alaska. Congrats Elliott!!!! 


Aloha,
Jen
