December's second Joy of Crafting show

The Joy of Crafting show would like to Thank All of You for supporting us through the years. If it weren't for you, we couldn't be here! Every year, we have more and more fun with new guests and of, course, NEW CRAFTS!
So, here's what you'll see on the second December show! Our first guest is Shari Hanai from our Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Crafts. Shari shows us a bunch of cool new tools from Sizzix found in our three Bead Shoppes (Mapunapuna, Hilo and Kahului)

Sizzix has teamed up with Vintaj and came out with their own stylish Big Kick machine and some metal embossing and engraving folders to use with their metal blanks. Really neat!

Then, Gloria  Arias from Pearl City BFC is back and  she helps us get ready for the New Year by making a journal using the Cinch.

She'll go through the basics of how to use this great binding tool.

Lastly, I'm all about the food! I'll show you how to make a Poke Push Up Pop and for dessert a delectable Trifle Push Up Pop. They're really easy to make and are super Fun for Holiday parties and more!

So, hope you can take some time off from your Holiday busy-ness and watch the show. Here's wishing All of You and Your Families a Wonderful Christmas and a Super Happy New Year!


  1. Merry Christmas Joy!
    Watched your show last night; great show! Loved the demo on Vintaj embossing, Shari is great. I bought some of those blanks along with the embossing mini folders, but just haven't had time to give it a try. Maybe after the holiday season.
    I so want to buy the Cinch, but it wasn't in my budget this year. And I love the idea of lunch in a push-up pop! Too cool.
    See you soon!

  2. This was a super show! I want to get the push-pop thing and make sushi. I also think I must have the Cinch binding system. Shari did a great presentation on the new Vintaj/Sizix products and I will get started using the products that I bought awhile ago. Looking forward to your next Joy of Crafting episodes. I learn so much and then go to BFC and shop like crazy for the products you have on your show.

  3. I saw your push pops on last night's show! My husband even got excited when he saw it. He wants me to pick up a bunch, so I guess that means he wants "me" to make something with them, lol. It should be fun trying different recipes and we will definitly be making some with the poke!

  4. oh man, I really want a poke push up pop right now!
