Prima Doll Card Kits

Viv’s Prima Doll Cards are so sweet. We had fun in class making this cute trio and as our card making kit has instructions and the stamp too we can take it home and make more!

Prima Doll Cards

We coloured the hair and skin using a waterbrush and distress inks, aged Mahogany,Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade for the hair tones, and Tea Dye  for the skin and edges of the patterned papers. Waterbrushing the dolls give that lovely blended soft look.

Have a sweet day!

Share the Washi Love

Over 400 rolls of Washi tape rolled into our store today, it had Sharon and I in a dilemma… How much can we smuggle home? Keep reading if you’d like a get a couple of free rolls for yourself.

20130605-135000.jpg
So… What’s your favourite use for Washi? I was thinking it would be nice for gift wrapping (picturing Kraft wrap, bakers twine and matching Washi)

20130605-140804.jpgIf you have an idea… Leave me a note or a link in the comments in the next week and next Wednesday night I will (randomly) choose someone to get some Washi sent to them! (Australia only please) or, if you’d like to buy some, get on in to our store quick!
Looking forward to your comments and ideas.

Have fun!

Air dry clay

Chatting with Christine recently about an upcoming project she’s working on really got me thinking. I love being able to work with some talented, creative and very giving people. I meet some wonderful people in this line of work. She is making something special (shh… it’s under wraps for now I think) for a group soon soon and clay was going to be her choice. Polymer clay has been very popular lately, especially with the latest tutors in town, but we got to thinking and decided Martha Stewart’s Air Dry Clay was the go! This is pretty cool stuff- see the video link below on how to use the clay, products available and some quick demos. 20130519-112239.jpg

This has been in store since last year, Child #4 has had a play with my set and come up with some fun things. It’s a terrific product and certainly worth looking at if you are in the market for some hands-on fun.
Here’s the video from CHA – shows you all the moulds and how easy it is to mix colours and manipulate.
I hope Christine’s project turns out wonderful and she enjoys working with Air Dry.

Smashing News

All the cool new Smash is in store! We hardly have room for it, so at the moment it’s overflowed into the workroom – check it out!

With almost a year of outstanding sales and consumer feedback under their belt, the Smash team have pinpointed the best performing formats for the 2013 Extension Line and expanded the assortment with fresh new designs.  New product formats push the boundaries of cool, enhancing the product offering.  The heart of the collection, the Folios, continue to lead the way in six new styles, from cutesy for the tween to tasty for the foodie.  There’s even a fun new 3D designed smash book and new tools, inks and markers, all designed as much for their portability as their style.  

Mimi totes

We have some great specials on our Mimi totes in store… What we have is the last stock remaining as these are now a discontinued line…. So sad as they are my absolute favourites! I love the quality and mine has lasted many years. You can be sure of quality if you buy a Mimi tote.

New things, pretty things

Nothing like new things to inspire you and the new ranges have been inspiring Natalie aplenty!

Here is a page she worked on today using the new Sunkiss Range. I love the layers, even the bottom layer has texture past that has been embossed and glimmered. Nat has used the new papers, journal cards (cleverly used as frames for her gorgeous photos), alphabet stickers, as well as the famous Prima flowers.

The Prima “SONGBIRD” collection of papers is soft and pretty. Here she has used delicious Prima flowers, Twiddlychip, tea-dyed muslin and Prima embellishments, that little bird on a branch is cut from one of the papers. I can also see a few Collections butterflies hidden in there too. Always fun looking at Natalies’ work, the more you look, the more you see.

World Traveler

Do you ever wish for the World Traveler life? Sometimes I do… sometimes I do not. I am happily a homebody… but love to dream! So many places to see, so many cultures and creations to admire. Me thinks it’s time to look at visiting a new place… just for a little while.

How about you? Been anywhere lately? Planning a trip? Planning a trip home perhaps.

On the subject of World Traveler, we have most of the range of papers BY Teresa Collins and the stickers are back in stock again. The memory album kits have had their second shipment, and there is one left on the shelf.  Let me know if you’d like me to save you one from the next order.

I love these chipboard words, shapes and off-the-page products. Because they are sold ‘raw’ (or “naked” hee hee) you can do so much with them. Ink them, Glimmermist spray them, or cover them with papers. You can paint them  or chalk them or add crackle mediums and texture paste and go to arty-town~!

We have so many of these chipboard babies in store already, but I am doing another order soon, (they KEEP bringing out new stuff!) so please head over to the ScrapFX Website and take a look at their awesome range of products. If there is a piece you’d like, flick me an email (Contacts at the top of this page) and I will add it to my next order.

I love Michelle Logan’s work, she is on the design team for Scrap FX, and  if you have another minute (and you KNOW there is always another minute on the computer.. just one more minute…) head over to her blog and check out the creation above in more detail as well as many other works!

Also… check out the Scrap FX Gallery for lots of cool pages, each listing the items used… so easy for you to re-create.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a layout  completed recently on a ‘Winter Girly Weekend’ and it was documenting our previous ‘Summer Girly Weekend’. I used Pink Paisley paper and glimmermisted it, then stamped with a script stamp in a few places. 7 gypsies rub-ons (love the colours in these)  were added, then Prima and Tim Holtz ribbons are layered up (and misted) as well as a punched border using black card. The lamp post is Cricut cut using Heritage, and then a few Prima flowers (and one from Petaloo) Hidden in there are some filmstrip ribbon by Tim Holtz ,some Martha butterfly punches and a new trinket by Bo-Bunny. The scrolls are Twiddleybitz Nero range and the title is by Scrap FX. This is painted white, then sprayed with glimmermist. It is also backed it with black and hand cut.  

Scrap FX is a laser cutting and etching business, designing and manufacturing cardboard (chipboard), acrylic, wood, and paper products for wholesale in the craft industries: scrapbooking embellishments, cardmaking, titles, handmade invitations, home décor and more.

 

Enjoy!

I have almost done my Bali album from a year ago, there is just those last couple of pages that I have found difficult to finish… golly I wish I could stay focused on one album till the very end… but no… I work on 15 things at a time.  Oh well… at least I have lots of things to busy my life.

We have some new holiday papers in store, here are some, these ones are glittered…

Welcome Home Collection

A homely range by Bo Bunny - much of this has sold – more stock mto arrive soon.

And the embellishments – lovin’ that teal colour! Makes me want to change my home decor to ‘ocean and clover’. :)

Blitzen Collection

Here is Bo Bunny’s second range of Christmas for this year! There’s a couple of papers in this range that I am totally besotted with, the colourings are fresh and stylish. That ‘deer’ is just gorgeous! Kira has already used this and created a fabulous little advent calendar. She posted it on our facebook page. It is the perfect size for little chocolates. She’s so clever! I am hoping she will bring it back in and I can copy it, I think I can see a scrap night or even a class coming up? 

If you are putting together Christmas Cards, Layouts or Mini Albums you are going to want some of these as well…. I just know it. :) (oh, and check out that insanely cute lamp post on the 12″ chipboard and also the dimensional stickers)
