Hi everyone, its that time of the week when I can sit back with a cuppa, on my computer & do some blogging. Just wanted to bring you up to speed with all the latest. Firstly we had another top up order of Green Tara!!!! This stuff just runs out the door, hard to keep up with it. So many yummy flowers, ribbons & laces. Don't you just love these leaves? Unfortunately the colours  don't look as good here as they really are. Gorgeous Autumn tones as well as the green ones. They have a little wire in them so you can poke them any way & they stay put.
Here is a bit of an overview of the Green Tara order we got in this morning.You can see some of the lovely NEW Fabric flowers & at just $1.95 each they are a bargain. You can buy them loose or in a "Concept pack".
We also got a top up of these gorgeous Velvet leaves & lots of little mini "Rosebuds" in loads of different colours.
Top ups of some different coloured Gardenias & some NEW ribbons & trims.
As well as heaps of our very favourite roses. These come in loads of different colours & sizes.
We also have a few items on clearance this week. Most of our Rub Ons are Half Price.
Also the last of our La La Land Stamps are on clearance at between 30% to 50% off.
Not that many left now so get in quick. These are great if you are into Copic Cards.
We have had soooo much NEW stock in over the past month & as you know our shop isn't that big, so the old has to make way for the NEW.
Stay tuned for more Updates as we are expecting more next week.

If you don't live local & you see something you like,  just email us or phone the shop & we can organise to have it mailed out to you.

Thanks for stoppin by.
Cheers Di  xo

Well it certainly seems to be the month for gorgeous NEW flowers. A fortnight ago we had the arrival of all our NEW release Green Tara fabric flowers, which by the way everyone absolutely loves & now we have just received our first order of the NEW "Dusty in Bloom" flowers from Dusty Attic.
They have released ten different colour ways, some fabric & some paper.

This is just some of the colours. We have the entire range  in store.
To add to their flower range they also have these packs of leaves . Great idea.

STOCK UPDATE (Scroll Down)
"Click on pic for close up view"

 Hi everyone. I thought I had better do another stock update. We had lots of NEW paper ranges as well as lots of other odds & ends arrive in store last  Thursday & Friday, but I ran out of time to show you then. I won't bore you with everything but I thought I would show you these few.
Firstly we got top up stock of Prima Resin bits. These are just soooo cute. I love the wishing well & the little toadstools.
This is one of the many NEW  ranges we got in, this one is called "Market" by Pink Paislee.
Next is this range called "Pretty in Pink" another NEW range from Glitz Designs.
We got this lovely bright range called "Spring Jubilee" also from Pink Paislee.
Next up we got this one called "Buttercup" by Lilybee Designs.
 This NEW range is called "Dots & Stripes" by Echo Park. I just love these bold stripes.
I just love this NEW range we got in called "Note to Self" by Echo Park. It features tickets, words, quotes, arrows, music, tags, viewmaster film circles, petty cash paper, numbers & more. It also has a matching die cut sticker sheet. This is a great all round range to suit most occasions.
I just adore this NEW range called "French Kiss" by Glitz Designs. A real shabby chic range strongly featuring lots of things done on a hessian background. Really textured looking. Definitely one of my favourites.
This is also part of the "French Kiss" range. Love it.
Well thanks for stopping by. I hope you like these NEW ranges we have in store. Stay tuned there is still more NEWBIES to come, hopefully next week.

"Sneak Peeks" of Some Classes at
Di's Scrapbooks at The Entrance

Hi everyone. I thought I would show you a few "Sneak Peeks" of some more classes we have running over at my shop at The Entrance. This is just a tiny sampler of what we have on offer.
As you can see our pages are loaded with technique so that you actually learn some NEW skills while making a lovely page for your album.
We have over eighty plus pages on display at any one time so there is always plenty to choose from. We have all sorts of themes, boy girl, wedding, formal, vintage etc etc. Because we can only seat a maximum of eight, our classes are small & therefore you get plenty of one on one attention & we give you the choice to choose what page you actually want to do. If we seated loads of people we couldn't offer you this choice, with large numbers that just wouldn't work.

We run a class every day of the week at 10.30am Monday to Saturday 
plus every Friday night from 7pm to midnight.
Either ring the shop to book in on 43344451
or call in & have a look at our pages, you won't be disappointed.
Hope to see you in class.
Cheers Di  xo

COST : Cost for this class is $15 plus materials
WHEN : Friday 30th March 10.30am to 2.30pm
     Friday 30th March 7pm to 11pm

Hi everyone. Just doing yet another stock update. As well as having all the lovely Green Tara flowers loose, we now have these yummy Green Tara "Concept Packs". These are sooo great as each  pack has a  variety of different  flowers. Some big, some small, perhaps a few rosebuds or perhaps some gorgeous skeleton leaves.
In each "Concept Pack" they are already colour co-ordinated for you with more than enough to do one or even two pages with.
 We have loads of these in stock but we still have all of the loose flowers if you prefer. That way if you just need one flower, well that is OK too, you can buy them singularly also.
Well thats all for today. Stay tuned later in the week for more updates. Loads more other stock due in.
Thanks for stoppin by.

We just got a huge delivery of brand NEW Flowers & accessories from Green Tara. These only hit the Australian shores yesterday & yes we have our delivery this morning. Great service Green Tara. Thank you.
As most of you know, you can buy most of the Green Tara flowers loose so they work out very economical. They also have all these gorgeous leaves that are wired so you can twist them however you like.
These photos really don't do these NEW flowers justice. They are just so beautiful. We also got some top up stock of these yummy Green Tara Crystal Sprays. These look fab divided into several pieces & added into your flower clusters for a touch of glam. We also got some of their NEW Butterflies, they match their  flowers. Sooooo nice.
