Litlle C's Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii Featured Aloha Blogger and the Greeting Farm Rain Snow Shine Box




Hi Friends!  Happy Saturday to you all!!!  Today is "Featured Aloha Blogger" Day at Little C's Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii and this week we're featuring Claudette of "Islander Girl Stampin".  Claudette is a very talented stamper that's for sure and I want to congratulate her for being chosen this week.  Stop by and check out the other fabulous creations by the DT and the write up on Claudette.

I decided to CASE a box that Claudette posted on her blog.  She posted the instructions on how to create this box on her blog if you want to try it out.   Her box gave me a fabulous idea on a box creation.  I'll post the tutorial in a few days.  Hopefully, tomorrow.   

By the way. . .Little C's is now selling "The Greeting Farm" stamps and she sells them the cheapest that I've seen so far so go check out Little C's.  Jen of Little C's a sell a variety of stamp brands such as Sarah Kay, Rachel Ann Miller, TGF, Pink Cat Studio, CC Designs, etc.  It's awesome!!!

Now to my box. . ..do you see how the front opens up a flap on the box to reveal the Greeting Farm "Rain Snow Shine" image?  Well, it was actually a mistake that turned out to be a great idea!  I had run my Nestabilities die through the machine and it didn't cut the shape completely.  It left a part of it intact so I decided to work with it and create the peek a boo part of the box.  Do you see how it's recessed?  Well, I'll show you the whole thing on my tutorial so stay tuned.  Don't hold your breath for tomorrow but I'll try my best to get it done.  I'm in the thick of things right now. . .I have a huge surprise for you this week so I'm busy working on getting things ready!!!







I had grand plans yesterday to create and post a few things but my allergies began acting up in a fierce way.  I spent the whole day nursing my runny nose and sneezing.  It was MISERABLE!!!!  I couldn't even see or think straight because my eyes were running like a waterfall and  I could not control my sneezing and runny nose.  I'm trying to use homepathic solutions such as nasal sprays, Neti Pot, sleeping, steam . ..short of cutting off my head.  It was such an unproductive day.  It's better today but I'm so apprehensive that it'll start up again. 

Anyway. . .enough of my whining about my allergies.  Lately, it's been the bane of my existence.  I colored Ms. Anya with my Copic Markers. . .the designer paper on this box is by SU. . a retired DP called "Green Tea".   I used a Prima flower and cut the shape with my Nestabilities.  That's about it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
