Gorjuss Girls & More!

Our Sugar Nellie stamps arrived today!! Click HERE to see all the available images from Gorjuss Girls, Home Grown & Sweet Art Ebony.

For those of you unfamiliar with Sugar Nellie stamps, they are manufactured by a small Scottish Stamp company that started in 2007. They have a variety of designers, all with their own unique style. Gorjuss girls are the mastermind of Suzanne Woolcott.

These stamps come unmounted, so you will need to use EZ Mount cushion so that you can use them with your acrylic block. A tutorial on the EZMount cushion can be found below.

How to Use EZ Mount Foam

Are your wood block stamps taking up too much room? Or did you buy some unmounted stamps, and not too sure how you'll get them to cling to your acrylic blocks? Introducing, EZ Mount Cushion made by Sunday International. This premium static cling mounting cushion will turn any rubber stamp into a cling stamp to be used with your acrylic blocks. Please watch the tutorial below to see how easy it is to convert your unmounted stamps.

The EZ Mount cushion comes in both the Grey foam, to be used on unmounted stamps. As well as the black thin cushion, which are for stamps that already come mounted with foam (ie. Stampin up stamps).

Please Note: It is not recommended that you store any of your EZ Mount stamps on Aacetate Sheets. Acetate is made with chemicals that will react with EZ Mount and any other cling cushion type product, making an almost permanent bond between the sheet and your cling cushion.

For a step-by-step illustration on how to mount your unmounted stamps, or how to convert your wood block stamps to EZMount stamps, visit our Tutorial section on our website by clicking HERE.

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call, email or visit the store!

Thanks for stopping by & checking out our blog!


Mahalo Iris!

I wanted to share this beautiful RAK from Iris...she came by for Sally's Pizza Box class yesterday and dropped off this "Spam Can" Girls Day goodie!

Can you believe it's a can of spam? You know we all love Spam here in Hawaii - why not recycle the containers? Iris says it's super easy - simply take a 3"x12" DP paper to wrap around the can and decorate to your hearts content. Then, simply use some pliers to dull down the sharp edge where the can is opened. Iris recommends that you use the Red Tacky tape to adhere the DP to the can - as the regular Meriken tape doesn't stick well against the metal.

Look at the homemade goodies she stuffed inside. Makes such a durable container that can be re-used. Thanks Iris!! I love it!
