I've prepared some creations using one of the new release set "Aloha Fhiona". Isn't the word "Aloha" given you some thoughts of a summer vacation? One of my memorable vacations was in 2007. When my family went to Japan, Taiwan & Hong Kong around March/April. I am showing you a picture we took in Japan when my husband and I brought our daughter to visit Puroland aka Hello Kitty Land in Japan. It was our first time there. Although we have no idea what they were talking about in the shows, but we had so much fun even just watching them.


Here are a couple pictures we took at Puroland in Japan. It was in March, but it wasn't that warm as we expected.

Here is my #1 project (card) for today - Aloha Fhiona. The flower, cocktail drink, Fhiona & the 'Hula Baby!' are part of this stamp set.


Show you a closer view on this cute little Aloha Fhiona. She is a doll!


This flower stamp also comes with the stamp set, I stamped 3 images and colored them in different colors.

This is #2 project (Candle with stamped images). Here is a little instructions, so very simple.
Step 1: Stamped the images on a piece of tissue paper.
Step 2: color the images
Step 3: cut out the image (just cut around the image, not necessarily to be exact on the line)
Step 4: lay the images on the candle, wrap a piece of wax paper around the candle to hold the images, use a heating tool to the wax paper where covers an image. The image will seal in with the candle. but please remember not to heat it too long or else, the candle be melted.
Step 5: slowly remove/unwrap the wax paper, and ta-da, your images (tissue paper) is now sealed in with the candle.
Step 6: stamped the sentiment on a plain color ribbon, adhered it around the candle.





I hope you like what I prepared for you and have fun playing with us for the blog hop. Your next hop will be the Talented Starlet "Kerri". Have fun visiting Kerri and good luck to you all :o)
