We will be open show day and better still we will be making all our indoor table space available to you to have some creative time with friends.

Join us simply by booking a place.

If you would like to do messy play, please let us know so we can provide you with a covered table so you can play with your inks and sprays without worrying about the mess.

Isn't that better than making space at  home and being distracted by all the little things that get in the way of creating.

Hope to see you there!!!

All our kits come complete with colour photos, cards, envelopes, paper, card, die cuts and embellishments to complete the cards.  If you are local, you might like to make the most of our free scrap and chat sessions (you can find them on our blog here under the classes / events tab) and work with the real life samples in front of you.

Great for camping, caravanning, weekend get aways or just to save you thinking!!!
