Christmas Has Arrived
At Di's Scrapbook Shop
at The Entrance

Hello everyone, as promised last Friday, I thought I had better
show you some of the NEW Christmas ranges that have been
arriving over the past few days. 

There are way too many to show you in one post, so I'll show you
 half now & I'll show the the others later in the week.
We certainly are overflowing with Christmas!!

First picture is a popular "Graphic 45" Chrissy range. 
Not brand new but soooo very popular.

Next up are some fab layered chipboard stickers 
by "Echo Park".

Next pic is a fab  Chrissy range from "Jillibean Soup".
I do so love the pinks & blues of this range.

This next range also from  "Echo Park" is more traditional.
There definitely seems to be a trend this year back to the
more traditional Christmas colours of reds & greens.

Having just said that we have this range from "October Afternoon"
in the pinks & blues.

Well thats all for today, got to fly.
There is heaps more Christmas to show you so I will be back
later in the week with more.

Until next time.

Hi everyone, thanks for calling by. We have had so much NEW stock
arrive this week so I thought I had better show you all some more today &
I will show you all the rest on Monday.
We had loads of NEW release paper ranges arrive including this 
yummy one from American Crafts called "5th Avenue & Frolic".
Hmmmm that front one would be a great one to cut out!!!

Next up we have another range arrive from "Simple Stories" which
I think is a great range to CONTRAST with all your other papers.
I call these sorts of papers "fillers", because they contrast with lots 
of different paper ranges. Great patterns & colours & the backs are
every bit as nice as the fronts.

This range is from "Pebbles Inc". Such bright summery colours
& again the one on the front would be just perfect to cut out.

This range has just been released by "Basic Grey" & it is called "Lucille".
Love this range. These pics really don't do this range any justice!!!

We also received lots of top up stocks of Thickers alphabets & numbers.

Some more NEW release Prima Flowers.

Finally we got the long overdue 
"Ingvild Bolme" Distressing Tools 
 back in. As soon as these come in within the week they are gone again, 
just can't keep up with these & our suppliers have been out of stock
of them for ages.
These really are the best hand held Distressing Tool on the market.

Well thats all for today but there is loads more to show you but I 
have ran out of time. Stay tuned & I'll show you more on Monday.
(We have got loads & loads of NEW Chrissy paper ranges in).
So until Monday,
have a great weekend.

do a Stock Update as we have had so much NEW & top up 
stock arrive over the last few days.

Firstly we had a BIG Green Tara order arrive, including lots
of the ever popular Rose Bud bunches in all colours.

Next up due to popular demand by our Card Makers,  we have 
stocked up on the small size Roses, in all colours.
These are really a great size for cards.

Also got top up stocks of all sizes & colours of Roses too.

This was the HUGE box of Green Tara flowers & goodies when
it first arrived. Hmmmm looks good.

Also got a big order of 2 Crafty chipboard in.

Looks like a sea of chipboard.

We have also received both top ups & NEW

Hanging Bird Cage
Decorated with Green Tara
Flowers & Ribbons

 I thought I would show you this "Hanging Bird Cage"
that I decorated as part of my Design Team projects
this month over on the  Green Tara blog,
I thought I would do something
a little different. Now I have to admit I don't do a lot of
 "Beyong the Page" but when I saw this gorgeous 
"shabby" Hanging Bird Cage,
 I just couldn't wait to get started.
I thought it would make a lovely present for someone special.
This project, I have to admit, was really soooooo easy.
I just got out all my white Green Tara flowers & started. 
I wanted to keep it all in whites with just a "kiss of green".

I have used one of the gorgeous Green Tara ribbons, a
 "Satin Edged Organza

Ooops, before I forget, a friend of mines hubby,
Kent Nguyen,
 photographed this for me. 
I am not the best at photographing things like this,
& he is such a great local photographer.
Thanks Kent  xox
All of these flowers & also the little Velvet Leaves
are all from Green Tara too. 
We stock all of these products 
including the Bird Cages
at my shop at The Entrance.
We also carry a massive range of 
Green Tara products.

I hope you will visit the Green Tara blog sometime, 
click HERE to see.
They have a great local & international Design Team,
 who are always coming up with such great ideas.
 Green Tara would also love you to visit them on
Well thats it from me today.
Until next time.

Including lots of Chrissy Ones

Hello everyone, thanks for calling by.
We have had lots of NEW stock hit the shelves again week this but I have just
 been so busy I haven't had a chance to get it up on the blog to show you.
The other day we had a big shipment of Dies, including some gorgeous 
Christmas ones arrive. (Below)

  Then yesterday we had lots more of our favourites also arrive.
(See top photo)
So  now have so some many wonderful dies in stock including
lots of gorgeous Chrissy ones. They certainly make
 Christmas Cards so much easier.
I think you will find the two brands that we have in stock
are verrrrry well priced as well & they are compatible
with most Die Cut Machines including Cuttlebug & Big Shot.

We  received top ups of Kaiser flowers as well as
their NEW release colours. These NEW colours
are just beautiful.
We got lots of Kaiser goodies including a few paper ranges, 
some nice Kaiser Christmas ranges & various other Kaiser bits.

We received  some of the NEW Kiaser Scrapbook Albums too.
Again, very well priced & sooo pretty too.
 We  got some top ups of these fabulous faux Suede
Scrapbook Albums too. These have some lovely stitched detail 
on the front & are available in these three colours.

These are the NEW little Birds Nests from Kaiser, Doilleys, some more
white Prima clocks (great for those shabby chic pages), as well as
these gorgeous Pink Paislee "Artisan" chipboard Butterflies, Hearts
as well as their paper Butterflies. With this all white range
they are made all white so you colour them to suit your project.
Such a great idea.

various mediums. We have lots more to choose from.
