Dole Plantation Scrapbook Pages!

Last year my good friend Bonnie came to Hawaii and one of the fun things that we did was visit the Dole Pineapple Plantation!  I scrapbooked these two pages for her birthday album and since May is National Scrapbooking month and we're doing scrapbook pages on my Sisters in Stamping blog this week, I thought I would share these pages with you. 



We had such a fun day, filled with riding on the Pineapple Express, pineapple ice cream, and getting lost in the Worlds Largest Maze!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fun and fabulous weekend!

Pacific Stamper’s Scrap Camp!

This past Sunday we had another very fun and successful Scrap Camp!  Since May is National Scrapbooking month, and we've received many requests for scrapbooking, our group put together this fun event!  Everyone made a full 6" x 6" tropical scrapbook! 



As usual, Brenda made our favors and welcome sign.  For the welcome sign Brenda used My Digital Studio!  For the favors, she made these cute little photo frames for everyone!  Too cute!


Shelby designed these beautiful customer bags and name tags. Everything matched the Tropical Party them of the scrapbook. 


As usual, we had great door prizes to give away!  Between the door prizes and Silent Auction items, most everyone went home with an extra little (or big) goodie!


Here are a couple items that we auctioned off in the Silent Auction.


Krista put together a GREAT demonstration on some ways to make your own embellishments.  Blake, her sister came to help and give moral support.


Krista demonstrated step-by-step instructions on how to make our own cute little buttons!  I can't wait to make a bunch of these myself!!


She also showed us how to use Rub-Ons to decorate brads, buttons, and ribbon!


How to use re-inkers to dye our ribbon to match our card stock!


How to use the same design for a scrapbook and/or a card.


And, finally, how to make great embellishments using the new Stampin' Up! Shimmer Paint.  Thank you Krista for teaching us so many cool techniques!


Happy stampers !


Here is a picture of the album cover.  Everyone chose the initial to put on the front.



And a couple of the page layouts.

Memories Mini Accordion Album!

You might have noticed that we have a guest designer this month on Craft Project Central, Debbie Naylor!!  I met Debbie almost two years ago at a Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle event!  I thought she was a wonderful gal from the first and then I found out what a talented stamper is she!  You probably recognize Debbie from our Sister's in Stamping blog too!



Here is the project that Debbie created for Craft Project Central!  This darling little mini album opens up to reveal beautifully decorated pages and accordion pockets ready for you to slip in pictures, journaling notes, and other memorabilia!  I love the way too, that Debbie put the colors together!  So bright and cheerful!  What a great gift this would make for a teacher, grandparent, new parent, etc.  Thanks Debbie for sharing your wonderful project with us!!
