All That You Are – March 2019

If you’ve followed the Maui Stamper, you’ll know that the first of each month I share my version of a small desktop easel calendar. It’s a delightful format precisely because it is so small, and I’m finding that I enjoy coloring these little pages.

MauiStamper Stampin' Up! All That You Are March 2019 DIY

I often have help in the craft room these days, and even more so in the morning when the sun streams in the windows. It’s been a cold winter on Maui – this morning it was 61°.

(Before you tell me how cold it was in Minnebraska this morning, remember that we live in sundresses and rubber slippers and don’t have heat in our homes. Our bodies are accustomed to 78°, partly cloudy with scattered showers. I live on the dry side of the island where annual rainfall is 11 inches and it seldom gets below 76°. 61° is cold!)

Ahem. So, back to my helper. She’s adorable, but she’s a big pest. I can’t tell you how challenging it is to color with Bella “helping”. She’s never still for long, and she likes to bump things to tell you how much she likes them. I’ll bet there are plenty of you who can relate:

Let Them Eat – a Piece of Cake

My DSP (Designer Series Paper) stash is getting Out Of Control. I could (gasp) get rid of some, or I could just use it. Wait – what was the question?

The Botanical Butterfly DSP from the 2019 Sale-a-bration catalog is really versatile. One side of each design is a full color butterfly based design, and the reverse is a black and white design. Some are geometric, like these dots, while others would be excellent choices for coloring. I love it when our products can meet so many needs!

We did this in one of my clubs, and some of the crafters chose to use the reverse side with the colored butterfly design. It’s just a different look, and I love that they explored their own ideas.

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake

That little flower at the top of the cake seemed like the perfect touch to finish this sunny card. I stocked up on the black Rhinestone Jewels when they were on the Clearance Rack, and if you don’t have any you can always use a Black Sharpie to color a traditional Rhinestone Jewel.
