Canvas Workshop This Week !

Struggling with ideas for Christmas presents? 

We have a scrapbook canvas workshop running on Saturday  - the 19th October here in Berwick.

Check out the website for detail on the class but here's a piccy of how your canvas could look by the time you have finished. You'll get to play with lots of different texture and products through the day, learning some new techniques and producing your own unique canvas by the end of the class. Just bring your own photo, your lunch and your favourite tool kit !! Enrol via the website - it's going to be a fun day.

We have a whole range of exciting classes and workshops coming up - this is the first of many. I'll be previewing them here on the blog, but they are all up on the website for you to view as well so go 'have a look'. 



What's happening in the Cupboard this week

Hello Everyone

Another busy time with the Picture to Page Show at the Sandown Racecourse here in Melbourne last week. It was a busy time for us all getting ready for the show, setting up and then 2 days of fun as we demonstrated our favourite products, showed off some new ones and met up with some of our existing customer base while also being discovered by lots of new people !

Top sellers as always were the wonderful PaperArtsty products - We had the new paint colours in stock and they went very quickly. Some lovely yummy colours, so have a look on the website. We don't have all the pics up yet as these colours weren't even on the Paper Artsy website a week ago - they are THAT new !!

JOFY stamps continue to fly out the door as fast as we get them in. We've added to the range with more Hot Picks and Lynne Perrella and Treasure Gold and Grunge Paste were flying too.

Lots of ladies queuing for Glitter Paste and watching Angus experiment with the new fluro colours and ladies were signing up for our series of courses, classes and workshops between now and Christmas. The Art Journaling course is particularly popular and not many places left.

I had a ball - made 3 tags over the two days, altering all sorts of bits and pieces along the way. Pictures to follow.

Our website has had a boost this week and has been moved to a super fast server. We hope you all appreciate the difference. It's grown very rapidly and had outpaced itself !!

And that's it from me for today - I'll be back soon with some pictures and news about our great Scrapbook Canvas class this Saturday. Still places left if you want to sign up and come along - a good chance to make a Christmas gift for someone special using one of your favourite photos.

Cheers everyone,

Exciting Stuff

9th October 2013

It's been a busy time in our 'cupboard' since I last posted. We've had a great Steampunk Clock workshop which was very popular and some fab clocks came out of that.

Olivia married Marco and their wedding was wonderful. We generously let her have a week off, and we did too as we had lots of overseas guests to catch up with & entertain. By the time we all got back to work, we realised that the next Picture to Page Craft Show at the Sandown Racecourse was coming up quickly.

So all hands to the pump to get in some exciting stock for the show, and for those who are going, you won't be disappointed !

We are delighted to announce we now have the new Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk Paint colours in stock. They arrived today and they are GORGEOUS. They are so new, they aren't even up on the Paper Artsy website yet ! Olivia is working hard as we speak to get them uploaded onto our website, and of course, we will have them at the show. I don't think they'll last long, but don't despair, we'll be ordering more soon. Here's a sneak peek, just after they came out of the box ...

We've got some more Paper Artsy stamps in to. The ever popular JOFY plates & Minis
plus a few other favourites and more of the Hot Picks range

But that's not all ......

We've also got the most gorgeous supply of mechanical elements in. For those of you who are Finnabair fans you won't be disappointed. We have a range of her Sunrise Sunset Mechanicals in as well as an extended range of other metal and flower embellishments from Prima - absolutely fabulous for all your mixed media/altered art projects. 

Best of all, we can't believe the prices. I had to check my sums several times. They are all very reasonably priced when compared to other brands. Here's a wee look ..

We've got more Glitter Paste and Stencils too and some new Saturated Canary stamps from their recent release along with some Molly Blooms which are so cute for Christmas cards. If you are coming to the Picture to Page Show this weekend here in Melbourne you won't be disappointed on our stand !

But that's not all ... we have also been working hard to put together a range of great classes and workshops between now and the end of the year, so check out the website for those. And to top it off, we finalised our design team of super talented ladies over the weekend. They will soon be up and running with a great serious of projects for you to try out - but more of that next time I post.

Until then, happy crafting. Give us a call if you need any help
