{Kokuyo Pricing Details}

A picture tells a thousand words. We have already gone through 3/4 of our order that arrived last Thursday and Friday. We are placing another order this week. As many of you know I am not able to get Kokuyo direct therefore I have to get it direct from Japan. Therefore there is a price increase. If you have your red machines from previous both refills will fit that machine. It was not cost effective to bring back the little blue one since the new Dotliner Long has triple the adhesive. You can see the size comparison to the right of the blog and see the new blue is identical to the red now.


1. Yes we can ship anywhere in the US you pay actual shipping

2. Yes we can ship out of the country on a case by case email for more info

3. Yes we can combine shipping for groups of friends so you can share the pricing


Both Dotliner Power and Dotliner Long Machines come with adhesive and the body $15.45

Red Dotliner Power Refill 32ft $9.01

Blue Dotliner Long Refill 118ft $11.58

You can call 954-247-0020 or email your order to cherryblossomstudio@ymail.com

Once we receive the order you will get a paypal invoice. Orders received M-F will be shipped within 24 hours upon receipt of payment.

So spread the word to friends, message board buddies etc. The more we order the better chance we have to try and negotiate lower prices. If and when we can do that we will of course pass the savings along to you. We are currently the only store brick and mortar or online that is selling the Kokuyo adhesive.

{Kokuyo has arrived}

I am in absolute astonishment. They shipped our Kokuyo order from Japan Tuesday the 16th and Wednesday the 17th and the one HUGE box arrived today already. That means the remainder should arrive tomorrow. Was off today and tomorrow but will probably go anyway to make sure everyone's product that is being shipped gets shipped by Saturday. When they told me orders could take 4-6 weeks I thought that was ship time. Evidentially, the longest part is making sure they have enough product to ship me and then it is quicker than sending a package from state to state here int he US. I am doing the HAppy Dance! If you pre committed you will have a charge going through over the next day or two and should get your goodies by the end of next week at the latest. If you have not provided credit card yet just call the store 954-247-0020 and we will get that and your shipping info to get it in the mail for you. This has been a long time coming and we will begin advertising and selling it via the website soon. In the meantime you can email or call your orders in. We pride ourselves in shipping within 24 hours M-F.

{Kokuyo Shipping Soon}

As mentioned previously I have spent some time arranging to begin receiving Kokuyo adhesive again. I was notified today that my shipment they are hoping will go out on August 16th. We will be receiving the Red Dotliner Power which contains 32ft of adhesive previously sold for $6-6.99 we will have machine $15.45 and refills $9.01. Unfortunately, with getting them from outside the country vs. a local distributor makes the pricing different. However, the Dotliner blue we will be receiving in the same style machine as the red but it contains 118ft of adhesive for $11.58. That gives you 22 feet more adhesive than the Scotch or about .42 cents cheaper. We will ship anywhere in the United States and will have it available for online ordering in the near future. We just wanted to get our initial order placed and received before we began complete advertising and online ordering. Almost the entire first order has been spoken for. However, we do have some that will be available. If you want to be guranteed some from the first order just call or email cherryblossomstudio@ymail.com and we will hold and notify when it ships. This is the point in which we will call for credit cards so as soon as the product arrives you will be charged and your order shipped immediatey.
Make your friends jealous and be the first to get the beloved Kokuyo back into your scrapping and cardmaking tools stash!

You can also call the store 954-247-0020 for any questions.

{Kokuyo coming back to Cherry Blossom Studio}

After spending over a year trying to find another Kokuyo source I have done it. It will still be the Japanese version and the Red Dotliner Power will be more expensive than when I was able to get it direct from Kokuyo($9.01) but we will also be getting the Dotliner Long which is the dots. It comes in the same machine as the Red Dotliner Power but it has 118ft of adhesive and is $11.58 it actually makes it cheaper than the Scotch brand Dot Roller that runs $6 for 49ft of adhesive. Drop us an email if you are interested in either of these. Those on the wish list will be first in line to receive when it arrives. We will have 4-6 week wait time in between orders of we run out since it is shipping from Japan.

{Hidden Memories a Smashing Success...}

At the end of 2010 Cassia came to join the Cherry Blossom teaching team. Her first class with us started a monthly series called Hidden Memories. The name was derived from the fact her class layouts allow people to have 20-30 photos in a 2 page layout. It sounds pretty amazing and exceeds are expectations each month. We now plan for approximately 42 students to take the class each month and many sign up site unseen to make sure they do not miss out. This clss is one of our fastest sell outs each month.

We now offer additional layout classes that teach awesome techniques and hold quite a few pictures. Those who do not have time to create at home but have 3-4 hours 3-4 days a month to committ to attending one or more of our layout classes will end up with 6-8 layouts a month. That is 2-3 albums a year just taking layout classes. Stop in and see all the wonderful layout classes taught by Ashley, Cassia, Vicki and Cindy each month.

Here is a pic of todays class. We had a great group of ladies join us for todays Hidden Memories class with another group taking the class Saturday morning.

You can go to www.cherryblossom-studio.com and click events. Then look for Hidden Memories, Interactive Magic, Basic Grey Page of the Month and Quick Quotes. These are all amazing layout classes to look for. They range from $22 - $27 for a 2 - 2 page spreads.

{March Guest Designer}

Hi there!

Please help us welcome our March Guest Designer,
Alison McGuinn!
Check out her blog here!

My name is Alison McGuinn, I live in Margate, FL just a few miles away from Cherry Blossom Studio and have been a customer since 2006! I am a CPA working at a national accounting firm, but more importantly a mother to my two boys, Tyler 6 and Carter 3. I have been married to my husband Dan for 11 years now. I started scrapbooking in 2004, after the birth of my first son. He was born with various medical issues that caused me to stay home with him for 7 months. I desperately needed something to fill my days, and had always been crafty as a child. During that time, I saw a scrapbook that somebody else made and had watched an infomercial for a scrapbooking kit on TV. I thought the hobby looked like something I could do to fill my days while at home. My first album was of my wedding. I finished it in less than a week and I was hooked! I started realizing all the different manufacturers and products that were out there besides those that could be found at Target, WalMart or Michaels. I was introduced to Cherry Blossom Studio when my cousin gave me a gift card from the store for Christmas. I now say I work to fund my scrapbooking “habit”! I like to scrap mostly photos of our family outings and holidays and enjoy using products from all different manufactures, especially Basic Grey, Crate Paper and Pink Paislee. I don’t really have a specific style, and don’t “plan” my pages. I just start cutting and pasting and don’t stop until I like what I see, sometimes that process takes me 30 minutes to create a page and sometime 2 hours. I don’t believe in measuring! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for Cherry Blossom Studio!
