Lilo's Fun Friday #92


Happy Late Aloha Friday!  Hope you're all having a great day!

For Lilo's Fun Friday #92 I'm continuing with my calendar shares of Amelia from the Greeting Farm.  I honestly have not been working on anything else. lol.  I've got some other projects in the works and if I finish them I'll be sharing, but for now I hope you're not getting tired of seeing Amelia.  I sure am NOT.  hahaha!

I previously used Amelia OA - Summer Fun in this calendar.  I originally had her colored up way different than what she is now.  Fuchsia hair, green and purple swimsuit, it was pretty bad, (hahaha).  I had to put her aside, but went back to her to give her a makeover.  After choosing this origami paper I decided to go for a different colored hair and outfit and I have to say the transformation is so much better than the original.  Love how Copic markers can do that!!  So after coloring her hair that pretty shade of orange I decided to paper piece her outfit and hair barrettes.  They were the perfect combo.  Instead of a laser cut sentiment I chose one from a well-loved AmyR stamp set.  The rest was put together very quickly.

Okie dokes, hoping you all have a fantastik Friday and weekend!  I'm looking forward to some more crafting time.  Mahalo for stopping by!

TBT - Happy Day Calendar


For today's Throwback Thursday post I picked another way back when Amelia from The Greeting Farm OA Happy Day stamp set.  And guess what?!  I made another calendar with her.  hahaha!  I know, I know.  hahaha!  I'm slowly whittling away the big stack...

Each time I see her I always picture pink hair!!  Not just any shade of pink, but a light pink.  I think I pulled it off.  I colored the rest of her with greens, blues and yellows.  She is a doll and totally reminds me of a Harujuku girl.  hehe.  I used another of the washi papers my dear cousin SharGD sent to me and happy with another CAS result.  The sentiment is another Island Scrapbooking laser cut phrase which I colored to match her boots.

Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!  Thank you for stopping by!

My Favorite Thing Amelia calendar


I've been having fun making up some mini calendars with my considerable amount of washi papers, 2015 calendars and the different Amelia stamps from The Greeting Farm.  Here's the newest one I've completed...

This is Amelia from the OA - My Favorite Thing stamp set.  I colored her with Copics, fun cut her out with a white border and glued her down flat for easy mailing.  That pretty washi paper is from the stash my cousin SharGD sent to me.  Let me say that she sent me a bunch of washi paper, so it will take some time to get through all of them.  I don't mind, it'll be fun to see what I can do with each of them.

Well nothing like a very short post to get the day started right.  Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!  Appreciate you stopping by!

Happy Amelia calendar & some winners!

Hello and Happy Sunday!

Today I have a happy calendar to share.  Hopefully it will make you smile...

Featuring another Amelia stamped image from the Greeting Farm (OA -Summer Fun), a Heidi Swapp die-cut word, and some fun washi paper this calendar was a whole lot of fun to put together.  The koi washi paper was gifted to me from my cousin SharGD (thanks Maine!) and I thought it would make the cutest back drop for this sweet summer fun Amelia.  After coloring her with Copics and fun cutting her with a white border I glued her down flat to make it seem like she's wading in the water and the fish are nibbling at her toes.  I cut out a few extra fish and positioned them around her feet.  She's giggling because they are tickling her toes.  (hahaha)

LFF #91 - Amelia Ahoy Calendar


My 1000th post candy giveaway ends today.  Be sure to leave a comment HERE. The winners will be announced on Sunday.

For today's Lilo's Fun Friday I thought I'd share another CAS calendar.  This one features an older TGF stamp from the OA - Ahoy set.

I've always thought of Amelia as a little anime girl, especially with all her cute outfits.  Too bad we haven't seen a new one in quite some time.  Hoping to see more soon.  The Copics colors on Amelia were pulled from the pretty washi paper in the background.  I'm not sure you can tell but there is a very soft blue on it, that is where I pulled the blue on her outfit from.  The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn word die, I cut up with two different colors so that there was a little shadow.  All papers are from Hanko Designs except for the very dark/magenta pieces, those are scraps from my stash and of course the Taylored Expressions 2015 calendar.

I've stamped and colored up a few more Amelia's in hopes of putting them on a few more calendar cards and sending them out.  I honestly do not need any more calendars.  hahaha!  Before I sign off I wanted to say a big MAHALO to Lynn from Lynn's Craft Blog.  I was the lucky winner in her surprise candy.  She sent me this awesome RAK.

If you need some crafty inspirations or need some ideas on gifts for others stop by Lynn's blog, she's got a ton and sometimes you'll see her post recipes and the beautiful photos of her trips around the world.  Thank you Lynn, it's always nice to stop by your blog because you share not only the project but you give details about the products that you use.  I hope when I visit the Big Island I get a chance to meet you in person.  Mahalo!!  And Mahalo to you for stopping by!!  Happy Aloha Friday!
