Washi Memo Pad

Archive for August 2013

Just received some sample peel off stickers in hiragana (one of the  Japanese character sets).  They say ‘arigato’ (thank you) and ‘omedeto’ (congratulations).  The stickers actually have an embossed feel to it.   I’ll be getting some in soon and will load them up onto the website. On this sample,  I used the vertical ‘arigato’ (thank you) as an accent on a card that used one of our Design panel dies….


Love, love, love these handmade cards from Japan….so simple, yet elegant….


Returned from Tokyo after attending the Japan Stationery show….it was mainly a show for office stationery products, but found and met some wonderful suppliers….  It was at the Tokyo Big Sight (nickname for Kokusai Tenjijo – Int’l Convention Center).

The blossoms bloomed just in time for the SF Cherry Blossom Festival this year….so delicate and beautiful!  They had a stunning Japanese dolls…. Our Hanko paper quilting kits were inspired by this doll-making technique (kimekomi dolls)….
