Mele Kalikimaka

One of the things I love the most about the girls over at Jingle Belles is that they really know how to make the prompts they give us a lot of fun! And to push us to try out new things and create unusual stuff.

Prompt #13 "Mele Kalikimaka" wished us a very Hawaiian Christmas. Now, that was a prompt that made me happy and made me smile! A lot.

The cards Stef and Lauren created for us to showcase the prompt were so gorgeous that I really recommend you go over there (here) to soak up their inspiring designs.

I wanted to attack my scrap box again and decided to go with the bright colour route. I turned to Sketch Support once more using a sketch I'd used for my notecards back in April and it all came together so wonderfully.

And it used a lot of scraps in the process. I can see light at the bottom of my box at last!

I ended up making 6 colourful production-line cards using this simple design and all it needed to finish them off was a suitable sentiment and a sprinkle of bright coloured flowers!

I love the bright colours and the touch of whimsy to these. Some of my favourites this year I think.

How are you doing with your cards for "that" time of the year? Why not think about joining in. We'd love to see you over there (Jingle Belles blog here)



  1. Oh, these are super cute & Christmasy too. Love it. And I'll be stealing that card sketch too.

  2. It's nice to see all these cards you are making Lisa :) I love the color combination of these. Hope you have a great weekend :)

  3. These are lovely, Lisa! Bonus for using the scraps too!

  4. What an awesome sketch for rocking those scraps ... you certainly have an eye for color and pattern combinations ... love these.

  5. AHA!!! i just used that sketch from a print out, and could not for the life of me figure out *WHERE* i had found it in the first place! mystery solved!!! (thank you!)

    as for your ♥♥♥AMAZING♥♥♥ mele kalikimaka cards, what can i say? BRILLIANT (in every sense of the word!!!) use of scraps, fabulous choice of papers, awesome little greeting flags... and of course those little clusters of bright tropical blossoms MAKE THEM! loooooove these! ♥

  6. Oh, how I love cards that use up some of my scraps and are fairly simple to put together. I love these and will definitely be 'stealing' this idea! x

  7. I'm sorry I missed that challenge as well... your take on it is wonderful!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
