How long has it been since you popped over? 
 Not only have we had to move a few things around to fit our in store crops in but we have had loads of new stock arrive and we have now filled it with  so many new goodies.  

We thought you might like to have a look so here's some pics to help you see what we've been up to. 

Remember we will be popping up to Toowoomba Carnival of Crafts on Sunday 28th April 10am - 2pm with a pop up shop at the Showgrounds to say thanks to all our hill folk friends who have visited us and to hopefully meet lots more.

Happy Creating Gayle

Michelle Grant is coming to A Place to Create

Are you looking for fun classes in mixed media and scrapbooking?

Michelle Grant is joining us for a fun filled weekend in April and sharing her amazing skills in both mixed media and paper art.

If you are looking for inspiration and help to enhance your creative abilities while building your confidence then you are in the right place! 🙂
Studio M specialises in the fusion of Scrapbooking and Mixed Media, why not have the best of both worlds hey."

January saw Colour Blast release the "Spread Your Wings" Collection which was designed by Australia's own Michelle Grant and this collection is now available in store.
February is very much one for the boys or those who just don't do pretty with "Graffiti Grunge" offering some versatile backgrounds which live up to the collection title perfectly.

The stencils are just another must have item and work so well together.  Whether you scrapbook or just play with mixed media, these won't disappoint.

To finish off the range,  there are 3 extraordinary dies and 2 clear stamp sets.  

The dies cut beautifully with the images falling out easily despite the great detail in them.  

Again, these dies offer so much versatility for cards, mixed media or scrapbooking.

We have some layout kits ready to release also using this collection - hope you like them.

 A collection pack with all papers and cut out sheets will be available also.  Phone the store on  
3851 2200 or email gayle@aplacetocreate.com.au to reserve your "must haves" or simply ask for more information.
