Blankina, Team Fumi - Thank you!

 Afternoon everyone!!

We've said thank you to Team Yumi and now it's time for Team Fumi to have the spotlight.  I had a truly fabulous time being a part of Team Fumi.  Getting to jump in with them for challenge posts was a lot of fun and each one of them kept all of us on our toes.  It was a special pleasure to have Blankina of Blankina Creations join our team.  She is one of the sweetest most supportive gals I had the pleasure of sharing a team with.  I first remembered seeing her in blogland via The Greeting Farm and when we first started this company she asked if we were having a DT call.  Her creations are both beautiful and daringly bold.  Simple and intricate.  Pretty fantastic and we're so glad she became a part of our ohana.  Enjoy her beautiful projects both old and some never seen before...

She recently became a certified Copic instructor for Team Italy and we can see why.  Beautiful job and big congrats Blankina.  Thank you so much for being a wonderful addition to our ohana, but most of all for being someone we could always count on to bring a huge smile to our faces.  We'll miss you, but again so happy we get to see you via FB and blogland.  Take care and Thank you!!

I'll be back later, later for another spotlight Team Fumi gal.  For now, enjoy the showcase and the ones that posted prior and don't forget to leave some love for each of these terrific ladies.


Corinne "Rinne" Mercado, Team Yumi - Thank you!

Good morning!
Gong Xi Fai Cai!  Happy Lunar New Year everyone! 

I hope you've been enjoying my little showcase and thank you posts to our wonderful design team members.  You can see and be reminded of how beautiful and talented this group of crafters are.  We were so very lucky with our team as they were so easy and fun to get to know and work with.  It really wasn't work, mostly fun, which is how it should be right? :)

Next up is one talented sista, who I hope to meet one day.  Her name is Corinne, but to her blog friends she's known as Rinne of Rinne's Bliss.  She's a fellow California girl and one super talented lady.  When I first saw her it was via blogland and The Greeting Farm.  She has a really awesome flair for bright colors and bold designs that I just love.  She never ceased to amaze and dazzle us each time she shared a project.  I especially loved that she gave our boys a lot of attention.  You'll see and remember what I'm talking about, enjoy the showcase...

See didn't I tell ya?  If you like to scrapbook, or currently working on project life, you'll get some wonderful advice and inspiration from Rinne.  I wish she could stay longer, wish they all could, and teach me how to add make-up and embellish.  She's an expert!! So thankful that you decided to join our ohana Rinne.  Will miss ya, but so happy for social media where we can always keep in touch and of course blogland.  Many many thanks!

Thank you so much Team Yumi we're gonna miss you!  Stop by later today when I start Team Fumi's showcase posts. 

**Don't forget to link up for our very last challenge.  Ends tonight at 9pm (pst).  

Happy Aloha Friday!

Olivia, Team Yumi - Thank you!!

Hey everyone!

Today is day two of my Thank you and spotlight showcase featuring another one of our lovely designers from Team Yumi, Olivia from Orm Crafty Nights.  I first met Olivia via one of our very first Y&FH challenges.  So technically she's been with us since the beginning.  When we advertised for a second group of designers she also answered our call and we could not have been happier than when she joined the team.  Her crafting style is bold colors with lots of fun patterns and mixed embellishments.  They always came together so beautifully and made our images shine.  I hope you enjoy a look back at all of Olivia's wonderful projects...

I love her style and creativity, one of the things I will miss is her beautiful smile.  She's someone to watch out for so don't forget to become a follow of her blog.  She'll give you great inspiration!!  Thanks so much Olivia for all of the wonderful projects you created using Yumi and Fumi and their friends.  We're so happy you joined our ohana!!  Mahalo!

Okay stay tuned for another showcase featuring another Team Yumi designer.. Until then...

Lisa Thompson, Team Yumi - Thank you!!


I've decided to space these posts out so that everyone has a chance to shine.  So this will be the last Spotlight and thank you post for today.  I'll be back later tonight/morning with another Team Yumi designer share...

Now I'd like to say a big MAHALO to Team Yumi gal, Lisa Thompson from Paper and Pawprints.  I believe when I first saw Lisa's designs it was via blogland.  She has a really lovely CAS style that I envy!  She can grab a bunch of different designs of paper and embellishments and make a masterpiece.  I also love all the clean lines and colors she puts together.  A true card maker and sweet friend. I shall truly miss her.   Lucky for me I can stop by her blog any time to see what she's got up her sleeve, and so can you!  Enjoy some older and never before seen projects from another talented lady whom I'm glad became a part of our ohana...

Awww man, this is totally making me nostalgic and sad, but also makes me smile because of all the time and effort put in to creating such beautiful projects with our stamps. Thank you tons Lisa for always giving us these beautiful and sweet designs.  So happy that you were able to be with our ohana for this journey.  I'll be seeing you in blogland and on FB.

Ok, have a good evening everyone and please leave a comment for these hardworking and talented ladies, they deserve it for all their creativity and inspiration.

Good night!
