Customizable Invitations!

We just custom designed these adorable Baby Shower invitations for a client...their shower theme is black & yellow bumble bees. How cute is that!?!

You can order your own customized invites from our Etsy Shop!

You can either choose to have the high resolution digital file emailed to you to be printed on your own, or you can have us print them for you. We will provide you with the envelopes when you have us print your invites.

These designs are available in sizes 4x6 and 5x7.

Ayako Cherry Blossom Card & Copic Class

Sorry this sample took so long to post...this is the sample for our beginner Copic Coloring Class featuring Ayako from Sister Stamps.

In this class, you'll learn how to color Black Hair and blending techniques for coloring skin & clothes.

The class focuses mainly on coloring with your copic markers. We give you all the elements needed to complete the card, which most often is completed at home.

I used the new Worldwin Ruche paper in colors White & Blue this time. I absolutely LOVE the texture of this paper. It made for a great sky and cloud cut-out.

Inside of the card is a sentiment I used again from my favorite set at the moment, Lawn Fawn's Bannerific & Sophie's Sentiments.

Please join us for our Ayako Cherry Blossom Copic Class:

September 10
10:30 - 12:30

September 11
1:00 - 3:00

I'll probably be repeating this class once more towards the end of the month. If you are interested in booking a private lesson for you and a few of your girlfriends, please call me 735-3553. We can accommodate custom classes at any time. Minimum of 3 is required. =)


Bon Dance!

Bon dance season in Hawaii just ended, but that's not stopping Nobu & Miyono of Sister Stamps.

Obon or just Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of family members who have passed away.

During the summer months from June to August, you'll find Bon Festivals throughout Hawaii hongwanji missions & temples. Summertime is when it is believed the ancestral spirits return to visit family & friends.

Obon in Japan dates back more than 500 years. Here in Hawaii, the festivals serve as both a ceremony of spiritual remembrance and a celebration of cultural heritage and community. Everyone is welcome at an o-bon festival, regardless of religious background or ethnicity.

These festivals are also known for serving up delicious Japanese foods such as andagi (sweet fried dough), grilled teri-beef and -chicken skewers, musubi (rice balls wrapped in dried seaweed), and stir-fry noodles. The food booths help to nourish the dancers, as well as raise money for the host hongwanji.

Living here for over 30 years, I've never attended one. Driving over the Pali to work, I pass 2 hongwanji missions and always see the beautiful lanterns strewn up. Hopefully I'll be able to catch a few next year.

In the meantime, you can join us this Saturday & Sunday as we teach another Copic Coloring Class. We'll be using the new Ruche Crepe Textured Cardstock, Sister Stamps Release #2 and Lawn Fawn stamps.

Saturday 9/3

Sunday 9/4
1:00 - 3:00

Friday 9/9
