Island Girls Summer Social

























This past weekend, I was so fortunate to be able to attend Teri's Island Girls' Summer Social. Teri coordinated the whole event so that a bunch of talented Hawaii crafters could get together to meet, socialize, shop & have fun! Barbie, her husband Danny and daughter Sunny hosted the event at their showroom...thank you SO MUCH for the hospitality!

The day was filled with projects, laughter, shopping and great company! We worked on 3 paper projects...a Tri-Shutter card using the cute Anime & animal dies from Quickutz, a pretty notepad holder using the Zutter machine, and a cute floral die card using the Big Shot.

We also had the great opportunity to watch Jodi from Inked Inspirations do her magic with Copics. She showed us how she uses different shades of black & grey to color hair...she makes it look so easy! She does amazing coloring, check out some of her samples below.

























We also had Claudette from Islander Girl Stampin' show us some digi magic...she's awesome on her mac! She made us really cute name tags with Sweeties...go check out her blog, she's currently giving away one of her cute blog banners & blogwear using Mindy Terasawa's designs. If you are interested, she'll be at Pineapple Cove on the 29th teaching a Digital 101 class..please call the store to reserve your spot!

Jen from Pieces of Me was also there demonstrating the cool things you can make using Design Studio with your Cricut. Jen, the backpack you made was so adorable! She also had products from her online store available for sale. I was lucky enough to win one of the door-prizes she donated, a gift certificate to use at her webstore. Thanks Jen!

Then there was Joy & her daughter from Tamiko's with lots of goodies from her webstore available for purchase. I snuck away from my Photo Kiosk to check out her stash..bought me some dew drops, ink and other goodies. =) Joy, don't forget to come pick up your digi layout.

Lastly, I was there with my Photo Kiosk so the girls could design a quick 12x12 digital scrapbook with photos they took throughout the day. The pages in this post are samples of what can be created in just minutes.

























Thanks Teri for a great event that allowed us to create new friendships! I had a great time and thank you for the opportunity to attend. Looking forward to the next one....=)! Island Girls, it was great to finally meet some of you in person. I've been following your blogs for a while now and am always inspired by your creativity..thanks for sharing your wonderful projects. Your RAKs are beautiful and I've eaten most of my goodies already!
