You've got no idea how much new stock has arrived which means we had to do a little juggling of space.  Great news is we’ve had a great tidy up, added loads to the March Madness Sale and discounted heaps more bits and pieces.

Al the flowers now have a little corner of their own.

We have so many beautiful ribbon and lace options altogether in the middle room now.

New "Imagine That" from Echo Park now has a home with the fabulous colours of Shimelle.

Celebr8 now has a new larger home where all the kids and bright papers used to be. 
New stock is on its way with loads of beautiful new flowers, matt board, papers and stencils.

Easter, Spring and the bright fun colours are all hanging out together in the
 middle of the middle room.  (That's not confusing at all is it?)

New "Practically Perfect" from Carta Bella is in stock.

Cocoa Vanilla has a new home too and as always, looks fabulous when it's all together.

Graphic 45 has now moved inside and most of the older lines are on clearance so be quick.
New lines now in store include "Fairie Dust" & "Little Women" and the
 new "Floral Shoppe" is due any day.


We have loads of 12"x 12" sticker sheets and other stickers & die cuts to finish 
off your pages / projects.

Did you need ribbon?  We have so many ribbons!!!

Basic mixed media background with texture paste, stencils and ink.

This week's $5 make and take allows you to explore the basic techniques of applying texture paste through stencils before applying a range of colours to create a fun birthday card.

We will also look at and talk about the difference when applying coloured pastes through your stencils and the different look this gives rather than applying the ink afterwards.

If you've wondered how to use stencils, texture paste or just apply ink with blending tools, this is a great little project to have a go at.

Wednesday ~ 10.00am - 10.30am
Thursday ~  1.00pm - 1.30pm
Friday ~ 10.00am - 10.30am

Please help us by booking in advance where possible.
