It’s RemARKably Scary Fun!

Welcome to the September RemARKable Blog tour – our theme is Scary Fun this month!  Crafters are always thinking a month or two in advance, although some of us (names omitted to protect the innocent) don’t actually DO anything until the last minute :)

Let’s start with little treats:

Maui Stamper Freakie Friends Tiny Treat BoxThe Tiny Treat boxes are 2″ all the way around – not too big and not too small.  Just the right size for Halloween-sized chocolate!

Maui Stamper Freakie Friends Tiny Treat BoxThese monsters from Freaky Friends remind me of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak – an all time favorite in the Stamper Household!

Maui Stamper Freakie Friends Tiny Treat BoxThe Very Vanilla panel is 1 5/8″ wide and 9″ long.  There are two small holes in the lid which I used to thread the Two-Tone trim.  I had help, too:

Maui Stamper Holiday Invitation Muslin Halloween BagThe Decorative masks – Stripes and Dots or Hearts and Stars – are some of my favorites from the 2014-2015 catalog.  A couple of minutes with a dauber and POW!  Magic!

Maui Stamper Freaky Friends Admit One Last but not least, a Halloween card to share a giggle.  In my case, there’s a long story behind a broken vacuum in the Stamper household, and the broom really is getting a workout.

Maui Stamper Freaky Friends Admit OneThe goofy owl sees that broom and is worried it may be destined for her.

Now you’re off to Audra Monk’s Crafty Yogi to see what she has to share!  Hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s RemARKable tour – Pin us, leave comments, share the love!

A Sandy Box by the Seashore

Well, the box isn’t really sandy…it’s all about the look:

Maui Stamper By the Seashore Box Punch BoardI went to a birthday party for our favorite neighborhood baker – it was a surprise, including the presence of her son, daughter, son-in-law and precious granddaughter from the mainland.  Yes, I cried :)

Welcome to my Zoo

September…it used to be all about back-to-school, but most Maui Scholars have been in the classroom for a month already!

Maui Stamper September 2014 DIY Easel Calendar I’ll confess that the phrase “what a zoo” entered my mind when I thought about back-to-school.  You’ll never see these 3 characters in a zoo!

  • Stamp set:  Zoo Babies
  • Color Palette:  Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive

Did you notice the banner across the top?  I did something I’ve never attempted before…I doodled it.

An Eclectic Pocket

I haven’t made a pocket card for ages – good enough reason to make one today!

Maui Stamper Kinda Eclectic Pocket card

The Envelope Punch board makes a much more satisfying pocket – no fussing with adhering the sides, just a nice clean envelope!  Cut off one side to create an opening for the card inside and assemble the rest as though you were assembling an ordinary envelope.

Maui Stamper Kinda Eclectic Pocket card

I used Park Lane DSP for the belly band and the strip across the top of the card, and that’s what drove the color palette.  A little stamping, a couple of punched butterflies, and this one is ready for the mailbox!

Maui Stamper Kinda Eclectic Pocket card

Well, almost ready – I’m hooked on these Starburst framelits – they make such a great layer!  The button and the Baker’s Twine will make this a little bumpy for USPS, but a little cushion – and an extra stamp – should make it all right.

Today is the last day for the Big Shot promotion, and the new Holiday catalog is in full swing!  Enjoy your holiday weekend and don’t forget to do a little craftin’.

Weekly Deals – How about Circles Framelits?

Maui Stamper Weekly Deals August 26 to Sept 1, 2014Those framelits would be a great add-on to the Big Shot deal – buy a Big Shot, get a free framelit and stamp bundle – available through August 31st.  Or just get the framelits :)  That’s pretty sweet too.
