Stock Update
Lots of NEW Dies in Store

Hi everyone. Today we received lots of NEW dies in store.
Unfortunately it is still only  a fraction of what is actually due !!!
I couldn't help myself, I had to make this "Hydrangea Card" as soon
as I unpacked this die. I definitely think this is my NEW favourite
 die. All the little components including leaves, stem &
even the tiny buds of the flower head are all in the one pack.

We also finally received these sentiments. I love the way they
come with two sizes in every pack.
Love these leaf ones, the pine tree sprays, LOVE the corners,
need I go on ???
Loads more still to come, hopefully next week for the others.
So stay tuned.
Until next time.

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by.
Well I thought I  had  finished unpacking the last of the boxes 
& as I'm sitting here typing this stock update on the blog,
another box has just arrived from Kaisercraft !!!
Just when you think you are finished for the day.

First up today, we have got lots of NEW coloured
cardstock in store. As paper ranges come & go & colour
 trends change, we like to keep our cardstock colours
 up to date too as there is nothing worse than not getting the
right shade to go with that perfect piece of paper.

We also got these NEW albums in chocolate, red & hot pink.

A couple more paper ranges with lots of maps & things on
which would be great for travel theme pages.

We also received both top up stock as well as some NEW
"Around the Page" Border Punch sets

Love these gorgeous "Flower & Bird Vines" & haven't been able 
to get any for ages, thank heavens they are finally available again
so we got good stocks of these in too.

We also got delivery of these gorgeous
"Micro Beads" in various colours.
These are great to embellish paper, chip, flowers etc with.
Pop some glue on & sprinkle some of these on.
They look beautiful.

Finally we received stock of these fabulous twin packs of
"Corrugated Card". I looooove this stuff but it is
so hard to get.

Lastly we got lots of top ups as well as lots of NEW stencils too.
This is just a sampling.
These are great to use with various mediums, mists, paints, inks etc.
They are available in both 6" x 6" as well as 12" x 12".

Well that just about covers it for today.
We still have lots more NEW stock from CHA due to
arrive over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned.

Hello everyone, thanks for calling by.
Well all the NEW stock from CHA is finally starting to arrive in store,
including three BEAUTIFUL new ranges from my favourite paper
company, Bo Bunny. This first one in pinks & greys is called
"Isabella" & OMG it is absolutely gorgeous in real life.
I have to have a piece of each !!!! ha ha

This one is also from Bo Bunny & it is called "Prairie Chic".
Lots of wood backgrounds with lovely soft bright colours & flowers.
Rather feminine with a touch of grunge.

This one is called "Mama Razzi #2" & it is a NEW spin on an old
favourite Bo Bunny range. Features film strips & cameras.
Great for either travel, boy or vintage layouts or cards.
Great masculine feel.

This one is "Firefly by Prima. Now this is not brand new but it is 
to my store. I had originally ordered it a couple of months back &
 the distributor lost our order. By the time it was realised, it had sold out !!!
Hence we have had to wait for it to come back into stock.
Beautiful range in soft brights with a real watercolour feel.
Truly beautiful, well worth the wait.

Some more pink staples.

I just had to show you this stamp. I love it.
Great for backgrounds. It features, spots, chicken wire as well
as some torn corrugated!!!
How good is this ? I think I definitely need one of these too.

Well that will do for today, I still have all these boxes to unpack,
so stay tuned until tomorrow & I'll show you the rest then!!!

Wooo Hooo I'm Excited
I Have Three of My Layouts
In the Current Issue Vol. 15 No 6
of Scrapbooking Memories Magazine

I'm super excited to share my news with you all today.
I have three of my layouts published in this, the current
issue of the "Scrapbooking Memories"  magazine.

Unfortunately I am not allowed to share them online
until a month later !!!!! Damn, 
however I will let you have a little "sneak peek".
I will post them here on the blog next month to
share them with you then.
But in the mean time....

page 62....

This layout featured lots of great background treatments.
It actually started its life as a plain old smooth piece
of paper. I teach these kind of techniques all the
time in my classes, so if you want to learn how,
book yourself in to one of my classes.

Then on page 67.....

This layout  is part of a chipboard feature showing different 
techniques on chipboard.
Again another thing I teach in my classes.

Then on page 110....

This layout  has also been given some background treatment
using mists , stencils & gesso etc

Sorry I can't show you the entire layouts but that is
the magazines rules, so we will have to wait until next month
to share them.
If you have a copy then have a look see for yourself.

These are on display in my shop at The Entrance along
with eighty plus others, so if you are over our way call in.


If you would like to learn some of these kinds of techniques,
book yourself into one of my classes. We have a class every day
of the week at 10.30am & also Friday night.

Until next time
