Warning lots of pictures......

Hello everyone. Today we received our order of four NEW Prima ranges that were only released recently at CHA. Ooooooh thet are so nice. These pics really do NOT do them any  justice. I would say that this is their  best release ever!!!
First up we have in gorgeous aquas "Zephyr"which includes lots of yummy papers, flowers, wood clock faces & trinkets & some sweet little "clothes peg" type of clips. This range is so summery, I love it.

Next we have "Tea Thyme" in lovely soft pinky peach tones & again so many gorgeous matching embellishments including these sweet little notes. I actually use these to add to my layers.
I think this might be my favourite new range!!!
 Some close ups.

Next up we have the "Romance Novel Collection". Again very soft but teamed with the 
black it really packs a punch. Again lots of matching bits & bobs.

The last of the four ranges is the "Rondelle" collection. Very feminine. Lots of flowers which would be great for fussy cutting too. I love the little matching "Tinkets & Tiles" & 
there is also a matching set of "Stick Pins".

We also received lots of NEW release Prima embellishments including these gorgeous "Doors", how fab are these? You have got to love the "Light Bulbs", NEW Resin "Angels & Cherubs", White Clockfaces, LOOOOOVE these, I am a bit of an addict for Prima Clockfaces. 
As well as Keys & Zipper Pulls.

Lastly we received  some of the NEW Prima Masks.  Love these as well.
All in all it is a fabulous NEW range.
Well done Prima.

Lastly if you have to make a Fathers Day card for Sunday, we received  these  
"Happy Fathers Day"  words in today.
We had these made especially for cards by our favourite chipboard people, 2 Crafty.
Thanks 2 Crafty for doing these for us.
These are the perfect size for a card &  look great as they are made out of chipboard.
They look so much more professional that just a stamp because being chipboard
 they give you that little tiny bit of height.
Cost is just $2 for the set.
We also have some other nice chipboard pieces that are just perfect
for male cards. This is just a sampling.

Well thats all for today.
Until next time.

More Christmas Dies Arrived...

Hi everyone, back again to let you know that we just received another shipment of these gorgeous NEW Christmas Dies. I have just cut a couple of samples to show you how lovely & fine they are & how well they cut. I definately think that the "Metal Shim" plate (which you just layer in between your other plates)  makes such a difference to die cutting, they cut well & just pull off real easy. All of the dies I have shown you lately are compatible with most die cut machines including both Cuttlbug & Big Shot. We also have plenty of the "Metal Shim" plates in stock too.
Don't you just love the one that does the "Christmas Greeting", how great is that.
It cuts the two different sizes too.

Until next time

Top ups of Memory Box Dies
Three NEW Bo Bunny Ranges

Hi everyone. Just popped by to let you all know that we finally got top up stocks of the 
Memory Box Dies, including these two Christmas ones.
I had actually ordered heaps more Chrissy ones but we have to wait a little longer for those apparently!!!
So stay tuned on that one.
We also got loads of the "metal shim plates" that we were also waiting on too.

 We also received three NEW release Bo Bunny ranges.
This first one is called "Detour" & as you can see it is a great travel range.

 Next up is this Bo Bunny Christmas range called "Rejoice".
Really a gorgeous range with some lovely elements.

The third Bo Bunny range we received is "Serenade".
It is a really nice range with flowers that are ideal for fussy cutting & some beautiful Dragonflies.
Love these Dragonflies. Great earthy colours too.

The next range we got was from "My Minds Eye".
Ooooh I just love this range. This photo soooo does not do this range any justice.
If you look close you will see some really nice detail in this paper range.

Well that is all I have time for today but stay tuned.
Until next time.

Today was "Housework" Day at the Shop!!!

Hello everyone. Thanks for calling by today. Well as you all know we adore all our Green Tara flowers, & as we have had so much NEW stock of them arrive lately, today I thought I had better have a bit of a clean up, do some housework, eeek, a dirty word,  & sort out our "Flower Shelves".
Also I thought all our interstate people might like a little glimpse of a corner of our shop.

You know what it is like. Things get cluttered & you can't find things easy etc You always need to do something else more important instead. So today I made time & I put lots of NEW bits & pieces of flowers, mists, paints, mediums etc etc etc out & 
got them all re organised.

It just takes a little shove from myself to get started sometimes.
We really carry an extensive range of flowers, leaves, vines, roses etc  so it is nice to get it all sorted out so we can actually see whats what!!

We also carry good stocks of various inks, Glimmermists & Stencils (pictured below), paints, Glues, Gesso, Impasto Medium, Diamond Dust, Irredescent Medium, Fimo modelling clay, Glossy & Crackle Accents, Stamp Cleaners,  Staz On, Distress Inks, Gel Pens & more.
Ooooh it is nice to get it all organised, my trouble is that I'm sooo time poor.

Thanks for stoppin by.
Stay tuned. Until next time.

"Page of the Month" KITS

Hi everyone, just wanted to let you know that this months "Page of the Month" kits are ready.
Before I go on to tell you what this months challenge is, I want to ask you something!!!

Do you like "Kraft" cardstock & "Kraft" coloured goodies. You know what I mean, that natural looking stuff. Well I do, & let me tell you girls, it is really big right now & very very popular too.
I especially like teaming it with white & one other colour!!!

Here are a few "Sneak Peeks" of a some  pages that are current classes at our shop
 at  The Entrance at the moment. 
You might happen to notice there is a common denominator here.
They all have that "Kraft" coloured background.
It looks really great with just about any other colour.
Actually I have yet to find a colour that it doesn't go with.
It is definitely the NEW neutral colour.

It goes great with pink.

Looks fab with blues.

Teams perfectly with with pink & aqua.

Love it with Lime & Pale blue.

One of my favourites would have to be teamed with yellow.

Now why I am I telling you all of this???
Well that is because this month for our "Page of the Month" kit  I have decided to go with...

"Kraft  +  White  +  Chipboard"

Now this is the kit
1 Kraft Cardstock
1 White Cardstock
1pair X  of 2 Crafty Chipboard Flourish Corners
1 X   2 Crafty Chipboard Word "My Friend"
1pkt of three X   2 Crafty Chipboard Butterflies
1/2 m Green Tara Mesh Ribbon

Now you can add whatever else you want to put  with this,  in any colour of your choice,
the only rule is that you must use these things.
The kits are on sale now, cost is $21 less member discount
& you have until the last week of the month to finish it off & bring it back in to the shop for the voting.
We put them all up on the wall , all anonymously
 of course, & we ask our customers to vote.
