JT's Aloha RAK Club

You all know Jen, Pieces of Me, from Hawaii? She's such a great person. I visit her blogs regularly because she has such a warm, and little crazy, aloha personality that always brings a smile to my face. Jen hosts a monthly Aloha RAK Club. These are my RAK pieces I got from Angie in this month's club! Love the cards, Angie. Thank you!

Design Team

I have exciting news to share with you! I'm on the justjohanna design team! Whoohooo! The justjohanna DT members have been my source of creative inspiration for quite some time and to be a part of this team is truly an honor for me. When I placed the justjohanna image on my blog above my picture it felt like I was displaying a trophy on my site. Can you feel the love?! Whether your design style is formal, simple or whimsical, justjohanna stamps can suit your taste. They're versatile and that's why I love them! Check out justjohanna stamps. I know you'll love them as much as I do. "CHEERS!" to all the new design team members!
Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.

Business Cards

The kids started school today and I decided to take the day off to do some errands. I went to JoAnn's this morning. All their scrapbook related items are currently 40% off. Only a handful of people were in there so I had a couple of isles all to myself!

I stumbled on to a blog today titled Heartfelt Greetings, by Amy Westerman. Amy has a great site, you have to check it out. She's hosting a contest where you are to make your own business cards. How cool is that?! Amy, if you're reading this, you totally inspired me! I made a variety of business cards for myself. I used flourishes, a stamp set by TAC. To add my own personal touch, I handwrote my name on the cards.

I hope you all get inspired to make your own business cards, too. If you're a papercrafter, you already have all the materials you need. Amy's contest ends at midnight this Saturday. I hope to see your wonderful creations on there. Be inspired! ~Eleanor

I Be-leaf in You!

My good friend came over last night and we made cards. It was so nice catching up with her and stamping! Here's a card we made with a couple of my favorite TAC stamp sets, pick of the patch (T-2658 p. 28) and swirly gigs (T-2632, p. 95). Have a great week! Aloha!

"Aloha"is Hawai'ian forAlo: "in the presence of" Ha: "the divine breath of life"

Congrats card

Here's a quick post of a card I made for a friend of mine. She and her family recently moved into their new home! I stamped the houses on different colored cardstock. Enjoy your week!
