Some Great Christmas Gift Ideas......

We are absolutely inundated with NEW stock at my
shop at The Entrance at the moment. I just thought I would show you
a few items before I rush off to a Chrissy function as I
have left it a bit late to be taking photos now!!!
I'll show you lots more tomorrow.

First up we have these fabulous NEW battery operated
 Sewing Machines. 
Now to be fair I thought they were
just a bit of a toy, but we have road tested them & we were
all very impressed!!! Great for stitching around the edges
of your pages & really easy too.
Priced under $35.00 less member discount.

Next we have just received top up stock of 
Cuttlebug Machines.
We retail these at $139.00 including one embossing folder.
This is a fab price & I doubt you will find it cheaper anywhere
in Australia.

We received another shipment of these 12" x 12 "
Scrapbook Frames.
These have a glass front & retail for $29.95
less member discount.


We still have some of these gorgeous metal 
Hanging Bird Cages
I have decorated this one on the left .
These would make a great present for someone special.
Retail price is $29.99 less member discount.


Remember we also do 
These can be arranged over the phone &
mailed out if necessary.

Stay tuned until tomorrow as I have 
heaps & heaps to show you.

Christmas Cards with Glitz & Glamour

Hello everyone. I have just popped by to show you our
Christmas Cards we will be doing at our December Card Classes.

Definitely "Glitz & Glamour".
I have used this fabulous NEW release paper that is all
foil & shimmery & I have teamed it with that amazing
gold glitter paper that we sell.

A few little surprises with this lot.
Wait until you see them in real life. Then you will
know what I mean!!!!

This sweet little card that just looks like a present from the front,
when you open it up it has three little pop up presents inside.
Just something a little different.

The card in the left of the picture is a "Centre Step" card & 
the one on the right has a pocket for a gift voucher.

I thought we would do something a bit
alternative for these Chrissy cards.

This months Card Classes are

Friday 14th December from 10am to 2pm
Friday 21st December from 10am to 2pm
Thursday 19th December from 7pm to 10pm

Cost is $20 Class Fee
plus $10 for the Kit

We only have a couple of places left so if you would
like to come along & join in the fun,

Stock Update....

Hi there everyone. Thought I had better do a stock update.
I know it is way overdue. We have had soooo many deliveries
of NEW stock since I last posted but I am just trying to catch up!!!
First up we have got lots & lots & lots of NEW papers in stock.
Here are just a few of my favourites.

This first one is from SEI in greens & yellows & it has all
gorgeous gold metallic all through it.
Totally DEVINE. Great for cutting out.

This is another beautiful range again from SEI.
Teales, purples & oranges & again all shimmery metallics.
Looooove this one too.

Now we have a gorgeous Christmas range also from SEI.
They seem to have gone all metallic & shimmery with their
newest ranges. Love them all.

Yet another SEI new release range. This one is all glittery.
Love this colour combo.

We really have had soooo many NEW ranges hit our
shelves over the past week or so but unfortunately I
just don't have time to photograph them all so I thought
I would give you a sampling.

We received Kaiser, Graphic 45, Basic Grey, 
Bo Bunny, Creative Imaginations,
Echo Park to name a few.

 We have also taken delivery of lots & lots of NEW chipboard.
Now as most of you know, chipboard & flowers are the two
 things Di's Scrapbooks are probably best known for.
As you can see in the above photo, this is where we hang all
of our 2 Crafty chipboard words & phrases.
At any given time we have between ninety to a hundred
different ones in stock, with NEW ones arriving 
all the time. Alternatively we can have something
custom made for you at no extra cost.
This only takes a few days.

This is our Chipboard for Cards & ATC's section.
Lots of really cute minatures.

This is a small selection of lovely Christmas chipboard pieces.
Loads more have arrived since I took this photo a couple
of days ago. Lots of great Chrissy titles & really cute bits.

Now here is another couple of chipboard displays in our shop.
As you can see, we really are the chipboard specialists.
Just ask, we are bound to have it!!!

 We were lucky enough to get some more of those great 12" x 12 "
scrapbook frames in too. Great Chrissie present.

You can organise these over the phone
& we can mail them out. Too easy.
Stay tuned. Until next time.

FREE "Classroom Quickies"

Hello everyone, thanks for calling by.
Today I want to share a NEW concept we are commencing
at our shop down at The Entrance.
Starting next week, we are doing
"FREE Classroom Quickies"
These are just a little 15 minute session where you learn
a new technique, see a product demonstrated etc.
You get to have a try at all different sorts of products
& do a little "Make & Take" that you can take home,
& learn something new along the way.

We are making it on a different day & time each week
so that no one misses out because of work or kids etc.
We might need to tweak it a little as we go, maybe
even  fine tune it perhaps!!

We have so many people asking us about different
techniques, products, how do you do this or that
so we thought this would be the perfect way to
accommodate everyone.

We will be doing all sorts or different things but
as we are coming up to Christmas we
thought we might start off with some
Christmas Gift Tags.

For our first Week 1.
Friday 23rd November at 7pm

Make this Chrismas Gift Tag using the most amazing
Glitter paper. We will be using one of our NEW
Die Cuts. This is actually a circle but we will show
you how to cut it up to fit on a tag.
Too easy.

Everything is supplied, & remember it is FREE.

Week 2.
Thursday 29th November at 6.30pm

Another Christmas Gift Tag where we are using that
amazing Glitter paper & Die Cuts. As well as cutting
out the Snowflake we will also show you how to die
cut these Christmas words too. A quick easy little
project for you to take home with you. You could
even put this on a card.

Everything is supplied, & remember it is FREE.

Week 3.
Monday 3rd December at 11am

This is the last of our Christmas Gift Tags.
 This die cut is just soooo beautiful. It is actually a
 border die cut but we will show you how to adapt it
 so that it is more versatile. This is what these
"Classroom Quickies" are all about. Showing our
customers so many different ideas & ways to use
different products to get more out of them. Giving you
ideas as well as techniques too.

Everything is supplied, & remember it is FREE.

Week 4
Tuesday 11th December at 2pm

This week I will be teaching you how to make a
handmade flower. It really is soooo easy when you
know how. We will just pop it onto a tag which we
will stamp first & then add some punched out leaves
& butterflies. All finished.

Everything is supplied, & remember it is FREE.

Well there you have our first four weeks of our
FREE "Classroom Quickies".
We will do one every week on various days
& nights at various times.
We do hope you will pop in & join us.
I will put them here on the blog & also on our 
FACEBOOK page too.
So keep an eye out for them.
No booking necessary, just call in &
join in the fun & learn something
along the way.

I would love to know what you think of this "Concept".
If you would like to leave me a message either here,
(down the bottom of this post)
or over on our Facebook page
that would be great.
Also if there is something you would like to learn
or a product you would like to see demonstrated
just let me know.

Well I hope to see you at some of our
"Classroom Quickies".

Until next time.
