NEW EASTER, GNOMES and DISNEY lines from PHOTO PLAY for 2020

Photo Play became a major feature in the store last year with many unique and versatile collections being released.  They seem to set themselves apart from other companies steering away from the generic abstract base and continuing to release some themed collections that you the customers seemed to be missing.
2020 seems to be another great year for Photo Play and A Place to Create if the first few months are anything to go on.
First we saw their ANOTHER DAY AT THE PARK collection release (it was actually late 2019 but only got to us early  2020) – bringing with it finally a Disney feel collection for anyone whose ever been to “the happiest place on earth” anywhere around the world.  
The range is designed by the Art Director of Photo Play, Becky Fleck Moore and for any of you have been around for years (like some of us), Becky has been a household name in the scrapping industry for years with her fabulous page maps books which I still own to this day and can’t part with.

In store, we teamed this range with fabulous ribbons, chippies and embellishments to create a stand filled with everything you need to scrap your Disney memories.
***************************************
       With more bright colours and another lost 

                  and nearly forgotten theme,  
                    came LITTLE BUILDER.
             A vibrant collection of papers and 
                 embellishments for every 
              childhood obsession with diggers!

Whether you are a card maker 
or scrapbooker, there is always a need to have this cool 
collection on hand.  
With bold patterns and fun colours, there are so many 
papers that can be used for every childhood page or 
birthday cards.
The packs and individual papers are in store now
 along with loads of fabulous co-ordinating 
ribbons and some cool chipboard sentiments
to match.
***************************************
As if that wasn’t enough cuteness, TULLA AND NORBERT hit the stores with their gorgeous gnome lifestyles and mushroom papers.  
Who doesn’t love some cute little gnomes and Tulla and Norbert are adorable.
With matching stamps and dies, papers and colouring sheets, it’s such a fun line.
 ***************************************

And of course because we are already thinking about EASTER, our new EASTER display includes this new line from Photo Play also.

EASTER WISHES is filled with so many fun elements and we are sure you will love it as much as we do.

All these ranges are in store now – have you seen them?
Come and say hi to the new owner, Karenina, or catch up with Gayle (yes she’s back at work on Tuesdays and some Saturdays starting this week), wish Carmel a happy birthday for last week, or help Sharon hobble around on her fractured foot…..whatever your motivation, we’d love to see you.

Have a fabulous week everybody.

Australian Cardmaker of the Year comes to A Place to Create

It’s nearly September and that means time for another amazing guest tutor to travel the country and make their way to Brisbane to share their talents with us.  On Tuesday 19th September, 2016 Australian Cardmaker of the Year, Anguree Jansen van Rensburg will be visiting to teach two classes – one for the scrapbookers and one for the cardmakers.

Here’s a little introduction to Anguree….
My name is Anguree and I am married to an wonderful guy and as you may know, 
I also  live in beautiful Darwin.
Fun fact: I love to travel but 
sometimes my all responsible self 
gets left at home and the crazy 6 
year old within me comes along… 
On one holiday I have bungee jumped
with both a pushbike and a scooter.
Why, you ask me?  Uhmm I wanted the photo… 😉😜


I was introduced into Scrapbooking 

somewhere in 2005

and have been 

addicted ever since.  I generally scrap 12×12 

pages, but also enjoy 

making cards, tags art journaling and 

off the page projects. 

My style can vary from grungy to 

shabby but I dare say no style is 

off limits. 

Experimenting with new techniques and products keeps 

me engaged and 

inspired. It makes it fun and allows me 

to jump between different 

styles depending on the products 

I choose to use.

I am incredibly honored and blessed to be chosen as

Cardmaker of the 

year for Simply Cards Magazine and 

am serving on a number of different

design teams. 

I  really treasure the  friendships I have been able to

build with those who I meet and work with and am blessed 

to call many

of them my friends.

I scrap and craft because it makes me happy. I love to 

share this love

and share the joy it gives me with 

others in the hope that it will 

encourage them to play 

along and find the same kind of happiness. 

To me it’s all 

about sharing the little things that makes life a 

happier place.

         

                  
                  Here is a little preview of the colours Anguree will be working with.  
        The layout will feature a selection of shades of blue combined with fabulous 
  watercolour techniques while  the cards focus on some gorgeous shabby chic vintage
                                                        white effects. 

You can follow Anguree’s work at her blogspot  where you will find many of her published                                                   works including the following ……




Taking bookings now – please phone the shop on 3851 2200 to make your pre paid booking.

SAVE THE DATE

You will need to save the date 
Tuesday 19th September 
 for our next exciting guest, 


Here’s what she has to say about herself:

Hello there, my name is Anguree, and I am super excited  to be teaching in Brisbane. 

I am married to an wonderful guy and as you may know, I also  live in beautiful Darwin.

Fun fact: I love to travel but sometimes my all responsible self gets left at home and the crazy 6 year old within me comes along… On one holiday I have bungee jumped with both a pushbike and a scooter. Why, you ask me? Uhmm I wanted the photo… 😉😜

****************************

At this stage, the plan is for Anguree to teach maybe 2 classes, one cardmaking and one layout. 

The projects are still being finalised but fingers crossed we can all make this work.

Be sure to email or phone (07 3851 2200)  the store to register your expression of interest so we can make sure we keep you updated as details unfold.
Below are some of Anguree’s amazing projects, many of which have been published…

You can also visit Anguree’s blog to learn more about her amazing talent and follow her creations.

Hope you like her work as much as we do.
